Make sure sense MS would put their money on that since they have nothing else to show.

And that's why they didn't show this....?



I mean, some of those games make sense anyway since they're sequels to games we've seen have Microsoft marketing in the past anyway, so I have no reason not to believe this...



Interesting move on their part. God knows they have the money to do it.



I doubt that's true considering that some of those aren't even announced yet.

I wonder if this is a new marketing push by Microsoft to see how much they would get back from having multiple exclusive marketing deals of big releases at once, or if they already knkw this would work.

 

i honestly don't know if exclusive marketing deals actually work. It seems the sales scale tip one way or the other depending on the game regardless of who has the marketing rights 

When you look at games that has MS marketing compared to games that dont games with MS marketing tend to help XBO out when it comes ot the games split.

For example using VGC for 8th gen only

Rainbow Six Siege with MS marketing the XBO version has 38.7% of the salles.

The Division with MS marketing the XBO version has a 40.2% of the sales.

Ghosts Recon wildlands without MS marketing the XBO has 33.3% of the sales.

Battlefeild 1 with MS marketing the XBO has 41.4% of the sales

Battlefeild Hardline without MS marketing the XBO has 36% of the sales.

AC Unity with MS marketing the XBO version had 46% of the sales.

AC Origins with MS marketing the XBO version has 35% of the sales.

AC Syndicate without MS marketing the XBO version has 28% of the sales.

CoD AW with MS marketing the XBO version has 40.9% of the sales.

CoD BO3 without MS marketing the XBO version has 32.4% of the sales

FIFA 17 with MS marketing the XBO version had 25.3% of the sales

FIFA 18 without MS marketing the XBO version had 20.7% of the sales.



To me this is pointless as at the end of the day I already have my console. I will not get an xbox one just cause they have fancy ads.

However next gen is a different ball game. If they market their system well and fix the BS they had with the launch of xbox one than I would consider it. However this is more marketing their console than any game that can be picked up on playstation or pc.

What a lot of people here aren't considering is that these marketing strategies are usually done for those small percentage increases. There are a lot of less invested people than us out there who may only know what's coming out from TV ads and if Fallout 4 is always followed with a big xbox logo, they may not even know it's available on anything else. Marketing works when applied broadly, the people who study game release calendars and can name the dev and publisher of every release this year from memory make up a very small percentage of the gaming public. Hell, there are TONS of people who think Pixar made Minions.



I just realized it kinda reminded me of their last E3.
Or was that two E3s ago?

It was the one they basically just did almost all third-party games. Including code vein.
It got me interested in Code vein, but not in the way they wanted since I will just get it on the ps4.

Although of that list no clue what I'm interested in. I've considered borderlands before, but never quite pulled the trigger. Single player seems boring, multiplayer makes them bullet sponges. Characters look interesting though.

I want to see what Cyberpunk 2077 looks like though.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

This list is usual suspects as far as ms marketing rights go. Real or not, anyone could have made this list while sleeping. That's how predictable it is.
