E3 Day One: That was unexpected

No, we are not actually at E3 right now, but you don't have to be to know that something big happened on the first day there. Everyone is still talking about yesterday's news - some in less healthy fashion than others.

For those who don't know, the Microsoft press conference kicked off E3 and, for most of it, it was a surprise-free affair - they discussed numerous games that had already been announced, including Fallout 3, Gears of War 2, Resident Evil 5 (which, according to some observers, has received a whitewash), Rock Band 2 (now with asskicking tracklist!), Lips, and Fable 2. They announced a partnership with Netflix which will allow people to watch movies on their 360s, which is cool. Towards the end, they brought out some people from Square Enix, who talked about some previously announced games, like Star Ocean. But then just before the show ended they dropped a bombshell: Final Fantasy XIII, previously considered one of the last reasons to purchase a PS3 over any other system, will be coming to the 360. Undoubtedly, this is a huge blow to Sony - the PS3 was just starting to find its footing here in the states. We'll have to see what their response will be today at their press conference.
