Forza is an annual game, Scalebound was first shown in 2014...MS cinference was all known about and very little wow factor.
God of War? Days Gone? RE7? Kojimas trailer was impressive too. But downplay if you like. Was like this last year where all the xbox fans kept trying to push that they won something..... we all know how it is viewed in retrospect.
So your saying MS was predictable yet you mention God of War 4 which 90% of gamers knew was coming and RE7 an unnual series thats multiplat.. strange.
They were both underwhelming in my opinion, both showed many expected games. I also never judge a show using multiplats as leverage. Just like many claimed FF7 the deciding game last year yet its also coming to everything. Shows should be based on company own exclusives. They both showed similar exclusives with many 3rd party games holding up the show. Its a draw in my opinion.
GOW looked very different to what people expected.... RE is not an annual series (mainline entries anyway)
Days Gone, Kojimas teaser, Horizon, Detroit and Spider-Man were all phenomenal IMO.
Gears looks incredibly dated, console reveal was nothing but numbers and out of their whole show the only essential game I would say was FH3, which looked great.
Main point is that all of MS games look like the same tired old formula and worn out franchises, Sony always has something new and fresh going on. Something for everyone.
