Minecraft RTX – The Building Blocks For a Ray Traced Future

Heya guys, we're just now sitting in the Galen Centre in Los Angeles awaiting the the start of Microsoft's pre-E3 press event, where they're going to tell us about how cool they, how cool they think Kinect is, and what their plans for the future are.

We're more interested in the latter though, and amidst rumours we'll see another new Fable (really Peter, really?), Halo 4 and a stack of new Kinect titles alongside some more US-centric On-Live TV announcements (further securing their position to dominate the lounge as an all-round media centre), we're actually hoping Microsoft show us something new.

We'll be live blogging the event from here, if you're keen, so stay tuned, and feel free to throw your two cents into everything we post in the Comments section.

Click through for our live blog which also serves as a wrap up of the event.

Holy crap, that Tomb Raider was damn near making me on edge. Piercing the side of her chest, holy crap. And the guy's head getting squashed! Man, that already out did MW3 haha. Also, what the hell was with that last scene in MW3 with the boat jumping into the chopper, not even wrecking the chopper, and the two guys jumping straight out and pulling the boat in.

Hmmm, Mass Effect being Kinectised. Interesting.

Ok, this Kinect stuff is starting to get out of hand. It's cool and all, but I don't want it to become the game. I don't want it to be the only way you can have fun. But damn the use for it in tom clancy is cool.

Where are ya in the audience Steve? Try and spot ya haha

Jeez, that's a lot of Kinect enabled games. They are really pushing Kinect into everything. Guess they aren't ready to let go of the 360.

Ok, that is just stupid of Minecraft and Notch. He hasn't even finished the game, and it isn't even at it's full potential, yet his making a mobile version and a Kinect version.

Is it me, or is Kinect rewriting the notion of gaming in that aim means nothing anymore? Seems all you do is just face in the general direction, do the move and hey you win!

Pretty much creepy.
Posted 03:52am 07/6/11
Steve, do you feel embarrassed?
Posted 03:53am 07/6/11
Btw, if it's not clear to Aussies watching - "coming this holiday" means "available around late November/early December."

happy to see Kinect being used to augment existing experiences finally with Mass Effect 3's voice commands. Really not interested in any of the games that require you to sit there holding your hands up the whole time though (Ghost Recon). It's a nice gimmick, but really not what the tech should be being used for.

Ghost Recon should have just gone with voice commands and off hand guestures while you use a regular controller.

Also. Have to agree that Fable as a rail-shooter looked pretty weak.
Posted 05:20am 07/6/11
Yeah, the whole "bond with your horse" was very, uhh, creepy.
Posted 06:58am 07/6/11
Another Halo, thought they finished with that?
Posted 03:22am 08/6/11
Damn you Eorl I really thought they were making a ninja gaiden 3 :(
Posted 04:43am 08/6/11
