Ah IGN, it's like you were somehow bribed to say the MS conference was good.
After reading the article, I don't feel like the Xbox giveaway at the end had much to do with the opinions that were being said. MS did score points with trailers and demos of its core games, including two big ones in Gears of War 3 and Halo Reach. A lot of them said they liked the technology behind Kinect with being able to control it with hand motions and voice commands, and the new feature of watching ESPN sports on for free it as well was a great move, but that the software with it was not what a lot of them wanted at all, aiming towards the casual audience. Besides the one portion of the conference which bombed in most of our opinions, the rest of it was solid.
