well its selling better than 360 did at first years.

Probably >25m shipments this year, very likely.

i dont have Kinect and i dont want Kinect but im happy at least i´ll be able to play Bioshock Infinite, Halo 4, Forza Horizon and probably Ryse this holiday... Also Resident Evil 6 please...



First of all, people always question Pachter's credibility and statement accuracy but now everyone's accepting this as fact? Not saying it's not going to happen, because it most certainly could, but I'm going to reserve final judgment for E3.

And when it comes to exclusives, Microsoft seems to do what works for them. They release a small number of high profile exclusives each year that are guaranteed to make a ton of money. Maybe the uncertain outcome of making a fresh IP (ahem, Alan Wake) is too risky a prospect, unfortunately.

The topic is wrong as well. Pachter didn't say MS told him their E3 was going to be more multimedia focused instead of games, he said the things he was being taken to Microsoft to show under NDA was more multimedia then games.

As it stands, Microsoft has the largest number of retail exclusives due in 2012 and the same for digital.

    My expectation is that Microsoft's E3 will be on par with the previous two years. Nothing over-the-top amazing, but nothing necessarily disappointing.

    The past two years have offered a three part focus on Kinect, Entertainment apps, and Games. It seems to have worked well for them.



    I guess this really shouldn't be a surprise of anyone at this point. Like I said in another thread, as long as they show a bunch of Halo 4 I'll be perfectly happy.

    I hope one of the things they show/announce for entertainment at E3 will be XBL Gold plus. The dream would be that the service cost around $15 a month (or $100 for a year) and include their Zune pass service, 2 free movie rentals a month, 1 free XBLA game a month (that you can keep as long as you have Gold like PSN Plus) and one rental of a game from their GoD service. Also I would like if they let you add a TV service like HBO or Xfinnity without having to have any prior subscriptions for another $10-15 (that won't happen though unfortunately)
