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.

Pretty terrible but kinda what I expected. MS isn't going for a traditional platform battle with Sony, instead they seem to be more interested in getting people on board with GP by offering a ton of small scale, cross-gen titles. It only makes sense that none of the games they showed felt next gen. Going to be very interesting when Sony does their official reveal with actual ps5 exclusives and MS just has their smart delivery games to counter that.

First they will have to show why Smart Delivery means anything.

They need to show an Xbox one game. An Xbox one game being "upscaled" via BC on the xbox one series. Then the same Xbox one series game native to the system.

Unless we are talking stuff like Shadows of Mordor/Forza where actual features are removed - I'm not sure I will see the difference between upscaled and native.  At least to any degree in which this is a selling point.

MS is making a big thing out of Smart Delivery but it's exactly the same thing as games patched for ps4 pro and Xbox one X. Of course they look a bit better but it's not like it's going to be a giant leap on Series X, especially compared to the XoneX version. Cross gen games can be different but that all depends on what the lead platform is. Shadow of Mordor, for example was a ps4/Xone game that got an outsourced crappy version later for ps3/360 and Forza had 2 different teams working on the Xone and 360 version.

Do we know whether that is on Xbox One as well?

I always imagined the new consoles would encourage devs to readdress split screen. A lot of resources to spare if they're working on cross gen games.



MS should have waited for a full unveil to showcase everything.

First impressions of "next gen" games should be exciting and give a wow factor; whether its the graphics or gameplay. This did neither for me :/

Ya guess either option isn’t perfect. This way has an initial “meh” with a delayed gratification (July). Gamers are an impatient bunch, we want now now now. 

Then there was tradition where a publisher has a massive showing with combined 1st and 3rd party (e3). But then the 3rd party drags down the 1st party and before you know it the conference is over and you only saw like 2-3 exclusive games that really wowed you. 



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

I'm just going to say that I'm no closer to buying an Xbox after watching that than I have been for the last 10 years.

Is it the same as the Ps4 pro / Xbox one X patches? Like is there a source for that? And does that mean when you put a "previous gen" game into the system that the "upscaling" won't involve that patch?

I have no actual experience with a console having cross gen, and BC for the same game. I don't remember the PS2 or PS3 (early version) doing that.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

I was expecting a lot more, to be honest.
if this was about 3rd party games, where's the big 3rd party games? Only Madden and AC.

Some of the games looked really good and, personally, i will probably buy them if i can.

The general vibe is that this felt, specially for a first look, like a compilation of B-sides from a given band. Whereas the best songs are reserved for some time in the future.
Not the best way to start the hype.

They didn't have to do anything this month. Showing a bunch of cross gen games isn't going to get the hype train rolling. In fact I'd wager that it caused the opposite effect, with people who have been anticipating these big console launches for years, its highly disappointing to see. I'd go to say this killed the steam from the initial hardware breakdown. That presentation with DF video's gave us a glimpse of what to expect, to a whole lot of nothing but trailers for some B tier games (Bloodlines 2 announcement was dope though).

Tbh, if you have nothing to show, don't do it.



im going to pull this out of my ass, like everyone one in this thread does but the majority of the people who buy consoles 1. dont see this video and 2. don't care if its a gameplay vid or not
