Now then. I've just been sat for an hour watching the conference.
Stepping up first was Don Mattrick to introduce us to the concept and the day. But before this was a trailer of people from Microsoft basically saying "We're changing gaming again." I beg to differ.
So Don Mattrick steps up to the stage, talks a bit about how the original Xbox came to be, introduction of Live, then the release of the Xbox 360 [X360] and an improvement of the Live services. At this precise point everyone knows what is now coming. He didn't half big it up though.
I have been playing around with the Windows 8 Release Preview for some weeks now. During that time, I have also read other reviews from other websites. Most have been criticising of this new OS, but I think it is great. A new step up from the old.
Starting with the installation, it is fast and simple. Once it has loaded all the files necessary for installation, it will progress, taking roughly twenty minutes. Once it boots up again, it will ask for your colour and a PC name. Do this, and then it is to the next part of setting up an internet connection. Again, simple. Then you have a choice to make a normal PC account, or use your Microsoft Account to sync all apps together and be able to access the Store and get easy access to other apps like SkyDrive. Once the account has been set up, you will see a black screen with "Your PC will be ready in a moment". Then you are taken to the new Start menu, the previously named Metro.
Wednesday. That was the day I finally got my hands on an Xbox 360. As Darth Vader would say, the circle is now complete. Well, more like a pentagon, as I now have all five generation 5 consoles. DS, then Wii, then PSP, then PS3, and now Xbox 360. And so, the picture shows the version I bought. The 4GB Kinect Celebration Pack. Two games - Kinect Sports and Kinect Adventures - came with it. And so, here I go.
