So next week event will be more of 3rd party event and partnership with 3rd party developer and the first party will be on June 


Excited to finally see what games are coming. Let's see what it's capable of. 

The true show will be in summer, but I'm curious to see the first 3rd party Games, and I will stay tuned on May the 7th for sure. I'm excited about XSX.

I'm super pumped! Xbox has been knocking it out of the park with marketing so far. Showing us a steady stream of info and being clear on what it is. Waiting for the summer event is going to be agonizing, but I understand how things are taking a bit longer to get ready with everything going on.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla gameplay is confirmed for the event. I am guessing we will also see Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay and the annual sports titles. If Microsoft gets the marketing rights to Call of Duty again, we could see that as well. I do expect some new games announced as well.

I am usually entertained by Microsoft events like this, but it is only because my BS meter is fully turned on.  How many of these games will also come to XB1?  Will they overhype something no one cares about like "Minecraft in 4k"?  Will it have some gimmick like watching TV with a Kinect?  Will they invite cirque du soleil again and turn their show into a literal circus?

Basically, once you subtract off all of the BS, then how much actual content will they have?  I'm even going to be super generous to them this time.  They get half credit for any game that also comes to PS5 just as long as it doesn't come to a gen 8 system.  I'll even give them full credit for a Series X exclusive even if the game also comes to PC.  Games must also give a release date of 2021 or sooner to get any credit.  Again, I'm setting the bar really low this time, but usually Microsoft finds a way to limbo under my expectations.

Announce some Xbox related perks for these games and get the 3rd party out of the way. I’m looking forward to the 1st party showing but keeping an eye for AC Valhalla and Cyber

Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles. 


I'm excited! I hope they show off more of Hellblade II. I still need to play and beat the first one but the little we saw of the sequel looks amazing.

It sounds like it's just third party oriented, so we probably won't see Hellblade.
