Games take time breh.

And talking is cheap... he have been promissing since he assumed the role, 4 years is enough time to get something going, don't you think? And not even talking about games being released, but studios being created or increased, multiple projects started, etc... what we hear are studios being closed, games being cancelled and exclusivity being bought... none of those are signals of commitment for 1st party that he have promised for so long (and of course kept repeating every year that the year is the best ever).

But please keep the accusation of console warz, when you had it started when you wished other companies had their Phill talking a lot... we do love the threads of he talking smack and being hypocrites for sure. And no, I wouldn't like Shu to be spinning the truth every week to make PS guys feel better nor would I want Shigeru doing it for Ninty... altought Reggie is one for some shit talking.

Not my fault you see that as a negative. Just part of that mentality I guess. I don’t see anything wrong with a Sony or Nintendo exec being as out there as Phil.

My rating

Nintendo : 8/10
MS   : 3/10
Sony : 2/10

Others : I don't know

Sony's last E3 was better than MS's...
Ubisoft was slightly better than Nintendo that year too.

MS had Athem Marketing.... and like 40 forgettable indie games (I cant even name 1 today from that E3)
Sonys E3 was def. better than MS one.

 

old quote from E3 2017:

Thats alot like my thinking (score wise too).

Ubisoft >  nintendo = sony > MS > EA.

@ bold

100% true. And they were forgettable. Cuphead actually peaked my interest, none of those games did.

They don't have time to be doing it all the time like Phil. They are using their time to actually deliver on the promise of games. Not spin constant negatives as positives, or things to be ignored. Or whining about Sony being meanies, as he turns around and does the exact same thing.

And you see anything wrong with Phil fulfilling his promises and acting more than talking??? Or perhaps you just see console warriors in others while you sit on a very high horse?

You do know that MS just released a 1st party game in Sea of Thieves right? And they also gave Rare creative freedom to make what ever they wanted. The funny side of all these debates between consoles is that if SoTs turned out a masterpiece everyone would be shutting up. I don't buy games based on reviews but damn I wish MS has a critically acclaimed game soon so the community can be quiet. That's all it is and all its about. MS have games and they have plenty of games coming out like State of Decay 2, Crackdown 3 and Ori Will of the Wisp. That sounds like a nice variety of games releasing in 1 year hopefully.

Wait till E3, that's what I am doing.

Yes I do know, you may remember I was in the thread of the metacritic of it.

Rare is a team that is under MS for over a decade, so that isn't any new investment, so I don't know what that have to do with the point anyway.

State of Decay and Crackdown have been announced and re-announced several times... while Ori is a nice continuation for a well received indie game for sure.

We have seem how many E3 with Phil and his promises? Will it always be wait for the next E3?

That is the problem thismeintiel was talking about. Xbox userbase defend Phil and Xbox even on things that are against their best interest, so both don't really improve on it.

As an Xbone owner, exactly what promises has Papa Phil made me that I should be upset about? And as for talking, I’m simply of the opinion that someone can make big decisions and do his job as an executive, AND talk to the media and fans on social media. I mean... he’s not a developer, lol. I’m sure he has plenty of downtime in his daily routine. You wouldn’t enjoy someone at Sony opening up more about the industry and their personal thoughts on it, games they’re enjoying, sharing content, news, hinting at future stuff? What a bizarre stance to take. Not sure what your issue is here.
