Microsoft invites press and bloggers to try out Xbox 360
Gaming Steve was among a number of bloggers and press people who got invited to New York by Microsoft to get introduced to the Xbox 360 and spend some quality time with some launch-day or near launch-day titles. Gaming Steve dug pretty much every title he had a chance to play with the exception of Perfect Dark, which he cited as being "pretty standard". That seems to fit the buzz around this game so far. He was pretty stoked about Condemned: Criminal Origins which played "like Resident Evil crossed with an FPS crossed with an psychological thriller".
Microsoft's Major Nelson had a good time entaertaining and getting stomped on in Dead or Alive. You can check out some pictures he took of the space the event was held in, here. All in all, sounds like it was a good time had by all.
