Ok. We're here. And yes. We are friggin' late.  We'll explain later. Here we go.  

11.01

Coming November 13, 2012.

11.01

Controllable “F38″ Hornet? Yup. Now they’re showing off an escorting objective in the game where the player can basically rip the roads, cars, buildings to shreds as they try to protect the assets.

10.59

The HUD seems to have a more futuristic edge to it with a more translucent look

10.58

The gameplay scene is taking place at Staples Center and Figueroa (Los Angeles). Lol.

10.57

Looks like you can make use of a number drones in almost like a similar nod to GRAW except not as annoyingly weak.

10.56

Game changes scene and now takes place at what seems to be a shopping center.

10.56

The demo guy is just OPing the hell out of the enemies on a collapsed highway.

10.55

This CoD game looks to be the most impressive looking so far.

10.54

The game is now showing off the new environmental and destructible effects. The game also seems to have some context sensitive areas where you mount to snipe.

10.52

Sequence where an armored vehicle is crossing an overpass and a helicopter is…oh hell…I’ll just say that it looks pretty damn good.

10.51

Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 will end off the show. Now showing gameplay bit.

10.50

Mattrick has basically pissed off the Smart TV manucturers. If you have XBox with Smart Glass, there’s no need for Smart TVs.

10.48

The moves definitely look alot more challenging. Rousing applause for Usher performance. Don Mattrick goes back on the stage. We’re about to reach the tail end.

10.48

Usher rippin’ up the stage. All the dancers are now synched up with the Dance Central 3 moves in the game. The choreography is actually pretty intricate.

10.45

“Instead of showing you the game, I can show you myself how we’re going the doing the moves” – Usher (before hitting stage)

10.44

Yup. Usher’s going on stage.

10.44

Dance Central 3 and Usher on screen.

10.43

That was quick. They basically stepped in. “Here’s our game”.

10.43

“We’re going to play this game, on the console, on the tablet, as I sit in the frigerator”

10.42

South Park Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone now hitting the stage. Making fun of Smart Glass.

10.41

South Park: The Stick Of Truth. Releasing March 5, 2013.

10.40

Looks like you can have your own South Park character.

10.40

LOL. A South Park game. This is probably the RPG game announced back on GameInformer where they team with Obsidian Entertainment. Might be wrong about developer but I know they’re well known.

10.38

Showing off another Kinect game. Titled Wreckateer.

10.37

Of course, there’s lots of zombies. Just as many as Dead Rising. Maybe more.

10.36

The QTE seens to show off a small gauge showing the effectiveness or timing of your button mashing.

10.36

The new QTE is making use of rotating analogs. Now they’re lots of running from shit blowing up which originated from a plane that crashed into a building.

10.34

Showing off the Kennedy’s melee we know and love from RE4. Grenades make a return to the series and they’re now counters!

10.33

The game seems to make good use of attacks on specific parts of the body. We get to see some of Croft’s melee skills as she rips the vocal chords of an random enemy.

10.24

Now, we’re looking at gameplay videos of Tomb Raider. Looks like they’re pushing the system to the limits. We see Lara rope downward towards a house on a cliff.

10.21

Smart Glass allows you interact with the web content using multitouch of your tablet. Imagine looking at the web on your TV and you’re controlling it through your mobile device.

10.20

Users who are browsing through Internet Explorer on XBox can watch videos in full screen. It’s a bit choppy in the current demo they’re showing but it’s impressive that we can potentially see any Flash-based video.

10.18

Now they’re showing off Internet Explorer on 360

10.16

Artists, developers can now envision new ways to experience games with mobile devices and the console. In the demo they show the tablet being used as a controller where the plays are selected and played with the tablet itself.

10.14

Smart Glass allows mobile devices to push media from the tablet to the TV. When the movie/TV show was pushed to the TV via console, the tablet shows information about the show or movie being played at the moment.

10.13

As many have suspected, Smart Glass makes use of devices outside of Windows Phone, Windows 8.

10.12

Looks like they’re about to talk about Smart Glass.

10.11
