Nice. Nintendo needs to bring it, because MS is going all out this year it seems.
Based on what?
The only thing I've seen is that Microsoft was asked about Sony's decision to skip E3 and what Microsoft will do this year. Their answer was that E3 is as big as it was before for them, meaning no change in comparison to previous years. Some people interpreted that message as Microsoft will do something bigger this time around, because the headlines of news articles/forum threads framed it that way, so that's probably how you got that impression.
"There was obviously some news about E3 back in the fall and we had a discussion internally of 'should we go big? Should we save some money? You know… what does that mean?'"
Spencer continued, noting that ultimately the team decided the curveball from Sony wasn't going to change Microsoft's plans.
"We just said 'No, we are going to do our thing. We’re going to go and be as big at E3 as we’ve ever been.' I love that opportunity to be with our fans and the industry."
I think the implication is that they were considering scaling back, but with Sony not being there they are going to go as big as usual (if not more). Certainly, I think Sony's decision will make Microsoft do more than they would have had Sony decided to present, but that's just my interpretation.
