Microsoft thinks their new Xbox 360 version was bigger E3 news than the 3DS
GS: How do you think Microsoft did at E3 in relation to your competitors. How do you think you stood up against the new offerings everyone else has?
Albert Penello: Oh, we were terrible. [laughs]
GS: [laughs] Yeah, like you’re going to say that.
AP: I feel like we had the single biggest piece of news, which was the new console and the fact that it was shipping. [Nintendo] let a lot go about the 3DS before the show, and even though there were rumors about the new [Xbox 360] console, nobody had seen anything before we announced it that day.
Honestly, I was not surprised about the slimmer 360, it was way over due. What I was surprised about was the fact they gave one out to everyone at their press conference. So in that way yes Microsoft you bought the love of some people, but surprised about the new system….I don’t think so.
