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."

So much this 

So that's why the One has been outsold by the 4 and now recently the Switch.  Never noticed... (sarcasm)

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.

More choices are bad, because they make it harder to decide =p.

Give me the same games every year so I don't need to think about what I want to buy.

Ummm.. Do I laugh or do I cringe?

I'm not sure, too many options... and we have seem people defending similar thoughts for real.

Fantastic conference. A bit too much 3rd party games but I think after buying these new studios they are warming up for the new generation in 2020. Super excited for Gears 5 ofcourse and Battletoads aswell.

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

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

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.
