1up.com's latest impressions of PDZ.
Now I live near Frisco and I had no idea M$'s showcasing the X360 out here
I gotta find this!
it was for editors and moderators at forums/websites mostly.
2 people I know from a forum got chosen by a female MS rep who lurked for a while and chose people that were the most "level headed and non biased", hence why I wasn't picked...hahahaha.
They got 2 pick to attend either the NY or SF one, they both attended the SF one and from their emails to me from the event, they walked away floored, and that was just by the dash and how cool it is.
They also said games like PGR and PD Zero are mind blowing in person, to actually see them in motion and control them was better than expected. They also said King Kong is a lot better than they expected. They tried the pc demo and werent impressed, but the 360 version is far along and is very smooth and very playable. They said even on the lowest difficulty, they kept getting eaten by T Rex's..hahahahaha
One of them wasnt expecting anything from Call of Duty 2, but walked away impressed and was rattled after playing, there was so much action going on. He also agreed that from the pc demo(might not be fair to compare seeing as the pc demo is just that, a demo), the 360 version is much smoother, looks cleaner, and runs a LOT faster.
These guys are home theatre nuts so they complained instantly when they sat down to see uncalibrated samsung displays
they despise lcd as well and can't wait to get home to their expensive crt sets and dlp projectors.
They played coop Pd Zero and ones face was pink while the others was white during cut scenes, it drove them nuts
