Microsoft E3 badge hints at Halo, Star Wars, Portal reveals
Microsoft has sent badges to members of the press allowing entry into their E3 press event, and boy, are they laden with expectation. We know that Nintendo and Sony both have new hardware to show off, but Microsoft is much more of an open question. What will be shown? Does the company have anything that will get players excited?
The envelope came with a badge, and stickers you can use to fill in a few slots on the badge. The phrases, character names, and images come from a few large properties, including Star Wars, Halo, Tomb Raider, and Portal. Take a look, and let's get to speculating!
So what do we see? Lightsabers, Lancers, an energy sword, and the names Luke Skywalker and GLaDOS. We know there's a Star Wars Kinect game on the way, and there's an image of the Kinect hardware right there. The rest of the images and names aren't quite as cut-and-dried. Will we finally see the HD-enabled remake of the original Halo? Exclusive Portal 2 content? There's an image of a guitar; will there be a new rhythm game?
This is fun to think about, and the badge certainly did its job: we're excited for the event. We'll be able to share more during our liveblog of the event Monday, June 6.
