Nice, thanks!



Some interesting stuff but overall underwhelming show considering the expectations. We didn't get much gameplay, aside from a couple of games, which is the biggest gripe for me. At the very least, I thought we'd get 20 - 30 second trailers of gameplay, not a bunch of in engine footage.

The first game looked the most next gen to me based on the mechanics: Titanfall wall running, the grapple hook, etc. One of the trailers with actual gameplay too.



A nice taste for the next gen, now show me the first party titles!



Heaps of pre-rendered or CGI trailers. I always have a hard time getting excited about those, but we know that some quality titles are underway. Either way, I'll wait at least one year before buying any new console once they release.

Isn't this always the problem.  Gamers become over expectant of ever game reveal.  When I first read the headline and saw that MS wasn't showing any of their stuff, I instantly thought these must be cross gen titles MS is giving a platform to give them more air time.  I really did not expect to see anything shattering during the release of any of these systems until a year or more after their release.

Personally, I watch this show to see if there were anything I care about and there were a few i will be keeping an eye on.  My main reason for getting a PS5 and a XSX is due to being able to use them for playing all the games I love at the highest setting and hopefully 4K 60FPS. Then again, I never get hyped for a new gen.  I stopped doing that a long time ago.



"Gameplay"?..........ok.

aside from the quality of games, this just tells me that all theese shows per month means that they are spreading what little they have across each month. I do not have even medium expectations for that july show.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

People won’t be inclined to admit it, but nobody likes seeing 3rd party games at a publishers E3. It’s just fluff that advertises the competition as much as your own. Prepare to be surprised, people still very much in the dark on the beefing up MS has been doing lately. MS got their fluff out of the way. 

And the irony that Sony has thus far shown a logo, spec sheets, and a controller. No 1st party exclusives officially unveiled...I’ve known about Halo Infinite and Hellblade 2 for a while now ;)

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

You would be right if both companies where boasting and trying to one up each other and both trying to show off. But since last year its all been coming from MS. For all that and this is all they have so far? After a point it only hurts the brand more than showing nothing. Now if Sony where to anounce something small, but just a little bit better than this show, then fans would jump on it like if they showed the bigest show ever made and thats something that I really hope never comes to happen. Gamers happy that trash was shown, just because its a tiny bet better than the competition.
