3/10

Another overpriced controller, lack of compelling new games, lack of usful info on XCloud, lack of info on Next Box, and mostly CGI.

My score is mostly based on how let down I was personally though. Was reallu hoping for the Fable 4 rumors to be true. Halo as a launch game was a very smart move however IMO, just wish they would have shown more.

They showcased 14 of their own games. That’s a ton of Microsoft games. Yet the goal posts are shifting, it’s still not good enough for some because we already knew about some of them, or they aren’t “big enough”.

The only new first party games they announced were bleeding edge and flight simulator. I think that's why most people are disappointed. Expectations were high for this e3, and MS hyping the show up as their biggest ever didn't help the matter. It's not that we already knew about "some" of them. We knew about all of them except bleeding edge and flight simulator, and a good chunk of them are games that are already out. Some of the best things they showed.

I was expecting a Fable announcement didn't get it. I was expecting Halo Gameplay, didn't get it. I was expecting at least one big surprise, didn't get it.

It was a good show, it just wasn't a good XBOX show. Outer Worlds trailer was a highlight, that's a multi-plat game.

New Game Announcements:

Bleeding Edge (Eh, don't expect this to be big or well liked)
Flight Simulator (I mean it's good for what it is, but most people don't care.)



Predictions (Made July 2019)

LTD: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m       2019 : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m        2020: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)


it was a good show to watch but only 1 new ip - all games bar a few were multiplat



...not much time to post anymore, used to be awesome on here really good fond memories from VGchartz...

PSN: Skeeuk - XBL: SkeeUK - PC: Skeeuk

really miss the VGCHARTZ of 2008 - 2013...

I cant give it higher than a 6. It actually started pretty strong, but ended up just having to much CGI, too much fluff and too much cringy moments. The better parts where Keanu Reeves in Cyberpunk, Wasteland 3 andTales of Arise. All three are coming to PS4, nothing that screamed the need for an Xbox.



Currently Playing: Divinity Original Sin II - Switch.

That’s cool and people are entitled to their opinions, but personally I won’t fault MS for others unrealistic expectations. If this were E3 2020, most of these points would hold more weight. But there’s still a whole ‘nother E3 before their next gen launch, that’s where you can expect announcements on new games from most of these studios, and gameplay to boot. 

Games take years to make, and now you throw in a change in corporate ownership for these studios, and next gen hardware. What exactly are they supposed to show? Of course it’s going to be stuff we already know about. To hope for or to expect otherwise is just setting yourself up to be disappointed.

They showed plenty of good stuff. I don’t care if we already knew about some of it. And what did they show for stuff already out besides two of their games? Maybe I’m missing something but the Forza expansion, State of Decay expansion, wasn’t that it for stuff already out? Please correct me if I’m wrong. 2 out of 14 is a “good chunk”? You’re really going to say the Heartland SoD2 expansion was as good as Outer Worlds or Ori or Minecraft Dungeons, among others? Yikes if so.

"You’re really going to say the Heartland SoD2 expansion was as good as Outer Worlds or Ori or Minecraft Dungeons" - Er not sure what gave you that impression, no I don't put the state of decay dlc anywhere near any of those three games. It's worth nothing that 2 of those three games are launching on other consoles.

But as far as I can tell here's the 14 first party games they showed:

1. Ori
2. Battletoads
3. Halo Infinite
4. Gears 5
5. State of Decay 2
6. Bleeding Edge
7. Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition
8. Forza Horizon 4
9. FLIGHT SIMULATOR
10. Psychonauts 2 (guess this counts as they announced they bought them)
11. Gears Funko
12. The Outer Worlds
13. Minecraft Dungeons
14. Halo MCC??? (wasn't really shown they just mentioned REACH coming out on PC.)

So 4 out of 14 or 28% (State of Decay 2, Forza, Gears Funko, Halo MCC), whether you class over a quarter as a "good chunk" well it's not exactly a hard science. It's also possible Halo MCC isn't one of them and I've missed something but can't think of what.

But yeah you're entitled to your opinion, as are everyone else and the general consensus seems to be disappointment. I thought I'd look up what crapgamer was saying for shits and giggles and even him and his goons are disappointed.

It was a 6 or 7/10 show for me, mainly because it didn't drag, other than perhaps the 1 minute section where we had to stare at a face because gears. But it wasn't a show to sell Xbox Consoles.

Edit: Just looked it up and Gears Pop isn't out? Someone on here told me they'd been playing it but I think perhaps it's just in beta, dunno.

They should have at least shown a teaser for some real new AAA exclusive.

They did show Bleeding Edge.



Halo Infinity - 5/5 because Halo
Gears 5 - 1/5 because they Dark Phoenixed the series.
Gears Escape - 3/5 shows promise
Forza 4 Lego- 0/5 because of that stupid song. Still love Forza 4. Was hoping for a new full announcement
Elite V2 - 5/5 can't wait to get my hands on this
Everything else N/A

Overall 3/5 but I won't be buying any exclusives this year by the looks of things. Can't wait for Scorpio / Halo though.

Halo MCC wasn't shown, it was just announced as part of the PC Game Pass. The game you're missing is Wasteland 3.

And what gave me that impression was your post. "a good chunk of them are games that are already out. Some of the best things they showed". That, to me, implies some of the best things they showed were games already out. Even if those four games you thought were already out actually were, it still wouldn't make sense because that would give you the great Forza trailer, a meh SoD2 story trailer, a laughably bad Gears Pop trailer, and nothing was shown of MCC. So that was some of the best they showed? Not even close.

So it actually was just two games already out. I thought I was right, thanks. And idc about any "general consensus". You can find whatever "general consensus" you want depending on where you want to look. Plus most of the people I've seen complaining about it are the people who expected MS to reveal next gen and spout off 20 new IPs and launch xCloud and shadow drop a new Fable LOL

Who is crapgamer? Why do we care about him? A lot of people who aren't big Xbox fans bring him up a lot here as if he is a big deal to Xbox fans or something. He seems to be a bigger deal to people who don't care for Xbox.
