    According to Pachter...

    Apparently, Microsoft told Pachter that their E3 focus is on services over games...

    On the latest episode of GT's Bonus Round: "Part 1 - Microsoft's E3", analyst Michael Pachter commented that MS told them their major focus is on new services and multimedia content as opposed to games, during a visit to the company.

    So, what do you think? Microsoft will host its E3 media briefing on June 4 10 a.m. Pacific / 1 p.m. Eastern.

    And remember, you will be able to watch the event live on Spike TV or through Xbox LIVE.

      sounds like this could be true, this is the second semi-confirmed time this same issue has come up as well as multiple rumors all saying the same thing, sounds like ms are waving the white flag this year and content to rest on their current sales figures and be happy to fall back into last place.

      unless of course they are planting lies and are going to blow everyone away, you just know that sony have 2 different conferences planned, one main one and a second version with details of ps4 in case they are pushed by an ms announcement.

      I was really looking forward to MS's conference, but the more it gets closer to E3 the more im drawn to Nintendo's instead. Think all you'll hear from MS is dashboard and probs a price cut. I still cant get used to the new dash, its hard to find what you want.
