Well yeah will get downplayed no matter what they showed.

"Game's already out on other platforms."
"Game will end up being cancelled."
"Everything was leaked before hand."
"Halo, gears, forza is no surprise at all."
"Too many multiplats."

Why would people not want new IP's to be shown off? Or sequals to something other than Halo Gears or Forza?

First party, second party and exclusives have ALWAYS defined the image of  console.  Because no matter how powerful of a console you have, you cannot have those fore mentioned games on that console.  And this whole "I just like third party games" to justify an Xbox One (not to say that there aren't other reasons that make the One worth the purchase) is a very sorry excuse.  Easily, Sony's console (for example) offers exclusive titles that are also of the same genres as those third parties games.  So you get more game, more choices.

It's sad if you and others think that an expense of mere $200 - $500 has to be justified.

Of course I do.  I just spent $250 on domed monkey bars and a Slackline for my daughter and friends.  It surely didn't go towards an Xbox.  And my wife would have bought me a Switch for my birthday if we hadn't just bought a $1500 Sony 4K HDR television.

So so so much sadness...

And let me make it very clear that we will be just as happy without this stuff.

Anything I decide to expend my money upon needs justification.

I thought the Microsoft E3 presentation was really good.
The pacing was brilliant and they showed a wide variety of games, some never heard of before and some we knew about with actual gameplay footage to consume.
Yes they came into E3 on the back foot but with their powerful hardware (a price cut to $400 US for the X is needed) and the acquisition of new studios I'm convinced that the XBOX brand isn't going anywhere....



Short answer:  No.

Cup Girl and Battle Toads! That's certainly interesting!

 

The new Gears as well but I hope horde mode is more like in Gears 2.

Sony and Nintendo are going neck and neck with the Switch and Sony, the Xbox One is a distant third. Gamer don't seem to care third party are marginally better on the One X because of the high price point and Sony is just killing at 1 st party game. They already had Detroit and God of War and are showcasing 4 blockbuster 1st party games this year @e3, Microsoft can counter at best with 1-2 exclusive games and some third party content and at this point they need to so much better than Sony to even out the playing field and I'm not sure if they can even be competitive.

You say that, but when I look at the top 10 games on the PS4 I only see one exclusive there (ONE!).  And the second best selling exclusive falls in the 14th spot with 6.5m units sold.  Which means that only 8% of the PS4 owners went out of their way to buy the SECOND BEST selling exclusive on the platform.  So sorry, but it looks to me that the majority of PS4 buyers are actually playing  CoD, Fifa and GTA right now. 



Yes. No matter how good the E3 conference is for ms or how many multiplatform games are, it won't push sales in a significant way ww for them.

No matter how many times this has been said they just ignore it.

but hey switch doesn't have majority of those third party title but still is conveniently outselling Xbox One! I wonder why?? It doesnt matter how much exclusives sells, it gives assurance to the consumer that there is a diverse line up and console manufacturer will have a great support and not abandon the system like MS did with 360 and sony did with Vita, and Cocky nintendo with Wii U by ignoring the third party
