The second Crackdown was a mess because the original developers were busy on another game so MS helped set up a new studio to make the sequel and only gave them about a year to develop it. If it had been an expansion sold for $20 it would have been fine, but charging full price for it was a rip off. For this new Crackdown game they claim to have the original lead developer back, they've said it will be in a new city, and they're returning to the gangs of the first game and not the lame post-apocalyptic zombie stuff of the second. The trailer also hinted that the game may have a fully destructible city, but it was CG and might not mean much. I'm cautiously optimistic. I'm still leaning towards getting a PS4, but the promise of a true sequel to Crackdown makes the Xbox One tempting. Agreed. There was some good stuff at the Sony conference, but they spent 20 boring minutes talking about statistics and TV stuff. You'd think these companies would have learned from the Xbox reveal last year that the kind of people that watch these conferences just want to see games. After last year's amazing E3, this year's showing was underwhelming. It's understandable considering last year had the next-gen consoles to look forward to, and all the drama that surrounded Xbox One's DRM, but it's still disappointing that nothing exciting was shown at any of the conferences.
