I didn't watch their presentation, so I'm mostly going off Wired's live blog. Nothing too blow-away here from the sounds of it - the keys seem to be a bunch of games that you could have guessed, as well as SmartGlass, their new Xbox/tablet integration software.

- Matter (2013)
- Resident Evil 6

No word on 720, eh? None of the games interest me, so I guess its a pass for games in the next few years. If I had a Tablet, I guess I would find the new features interesting.

Of all the franchises to make an RPG out of...

South Park?!?!

That's either the most bizarre or the most awesome thing I've ever heard. Judgement to be reserved until the first previews come out.

Here's a big article on the South Park RPG (which actually sounds pretty awesome), and majornelson.com has two press releases from Microsoft detailing all the new entertainment apps (with barely any mention of games, though I'm pretty sure Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD will be a day-one buy for me).

The Sega Dreamcast controller was so awesome in that regard. I loved picking my plays in NFL 2K off the vmu screen. I wish Nintendo and Sony would make their portable devices be able to sync up with the game console abd act as a controller with a screen. You souldn't need to have one but be able to get added gameplay if you.

Kudos MS.

I saw two pictures somewhere, one of a sumo wrestler with Donkey Kong's head, and another of a boxer landing a punch with Samus' arm/cannon. Apparently, Nintendo is spending $50 million on this ad campaign, so get used to this slogan. Edit:
