We aren't. All I have said is that their future output right now doesn't look much different from their current output.
Gears 5 looks like Gears. E3 showing was straight up junk, so it looks below par so far to me. Halo Infinite is hard to tell, we have like nothing going on it. Ori 2 looks really good.
As I said before, I am not saying their quality sucks. I am saying that their future output doesn't look to be greater than what we are getting now. And considering this convo has been strictly about MS, the competition talk is irrelevant, and comparisons is something I am not doing.
Not sure how you can be so blunt with saying the show is junk. What exactly did you want and expected? They showcased a bunch of games, they don't all have to be AAA budgeted titles to deserve points. Also a lot of the games they showed they basically own.. like The Outer Worlds, Wasteland 3 and Minecraft Dungeons just to name a few. They will also announce more at the PC event with Gears Tactics and hopefully AoE4.
To me there future output looks just as good as it ever was, I was disappointed that Ori 2 was delayed to 2020, however I got to see gameplay of Battletoads and I saw Ninja Theory's new game.
The Halo trailers can tell a million words, as its the little things you notice in the trailer rather than straight up gameplay. Halo fans like myself loved what we saw and heard, if you are into Halo you would understand its an event not just another game. I am a little disappointed that they didn't show gameplay footage but the overall Halo trailer was well worth it for me and its hyped beyond belief.
As for the entire show, we had MS announce there next console specs, we had them purchase another studio, we were shown 14 1st party games and a bunch of 3rd party games that will look better on the X compared to its console counter parts. The show cannot please you unless you know what you actually want.
It felt like Xbox were holding there cards to there chest this E3, no announcements from Turn 10, Playgrounds 2nd division, Compulsion, Rare and Initiative which means there saving them for next year. To prove that fact just look at there console announcement, they only announced everything Sony announced with PS5 and left it at that, basically saying they are doing all those things to. Next year will be an even bigger year.
