I do think is interesting that 'MS getting all 3rd party announcements didn't pan out'
Pretty much their usual 3rd party showing

Probably too busy trying to buy half the industry...

Haha, rumours were quite thick for who they may have got.  Was alittle disappointed that it was only double fine

Microsoft had a good variety of titles but nothing I would say is stellar. It all looked like "this might be fun". Doesn't help we already knew about a lot of the titles. Battletoads looks very bad (might play well though). The Gears trailer was awful though the Escape one was fine. Would have rather have seen gameplay though. What is weird is there seems to be a lot of games but Scarlet will be right around the corner. They might be putting too much into the XBox One basket when they should save it for next year. They're going to need some killer titles to sell the system. Feel like they aren't getting that.

Known as Smashchu in a former life

Super hyped for Borderlands 3, Gears 5, and Cyberpunk 2077. Also Battletoads, new Tales game (one of my favorite JRPG series) should be sweet, and Elden Ring could potentially be very interesting (Miyazaki & GRRM collaboration??). Brief bit on the new console but not many concrete, juicy bits of real info. Just seemed like vague marketing pr filler. And Keanu sighting! Lol, random, but cool I guess.. Other than that, rather avg MS conference. I'd say a 7 out of 10.



5/10 I was hoping they would have shown more or at least set scarlet apart from the ps5.Guess I will have to wait till next E3 to be convinced to buy the next xbox.

Solid 9. Their best this gen and as good as Nintendos 2014 show which is my favorite E3.



So one part of me wants to give them brownie points for really staying on target, as well as maintaining a steady momentum. Games were the center piece here, as they should be. The features and services all looked pretty solid.

Yet.... pretty much everything shown was multiplatform release, things that were already previously announced, and the few actual big reveals were already spoiled yesterday. Spoilers cannot be helped, I wouldn't hold that entirely against them. Still, those spoiled goodies came down to CGI trailers mostly anyway. Speaking of, that was an issue, so many clips were just fluff piece CGI trailers. I can be relatively ok with such things but only when they at least progress interest in the story of a game in some way.

It's just so sad to say but very little interested me here, even with a hardy 60 games shown. One might bring up MS's new ethos is to be device agnostic, something that can really open up some doors for their business model. While this makes perfect since financially......what is exactly making this a draw to Xbox ecosystem over Playstation/Nintendo? They are seemingly just making it easier and easier to respectfully NOT buy their hardware as everything coming from them is still available elsewhere. GamePass value is growing while Xbox value is shrinking.

This really did feel like the complete admittance of them stepping out of the main console race, even if they casually tipped about Next Gen Hardware.

They just announced the ability to use your console as a server.....PS4 already does this, albeit not the most effective route. You can remotely control and utilize your PS4 now on devices. So forgive me for not being so shocked at this announcement either.

When it comes down to it, this was an earnest attempt for the cards that they have, but ultimately a mediocre showing. 6/10



      

      

      

Greatness Awaits

PSN:Forevercloud (looking for Soul Sacrifice Partners!!!)

Haven't watched it yet, but so far a lot of people is saying it wasn't good.



A 10. The best e3 show ever

Xbox is more than a console now, it's a service. MS doesn't need you to buy their system to support them. Some might buy Xbox Gamepass for PC, use project Xcloud on their phone, or use traditional Xbox hardware to play games. It really doesn't matter to them because you are still supporting Xbox as a service. People who enjoy the Xbox console experience will continue to buy consoles. They are not stepping out of the console race, they are simply giving more options on how to play their games.
