2) Have Rockstar come out and announce GTA6 as a timed exclusive.  It will come to Series X one year before PS5.

This makes my head hurt. Will never happen, Rockstar games are way too big to be money hatted. Hypothetically in some blizzaro alternate reality it would be true, they lose a lot of money from the revenue they would get from in-game purchases alone.

Announce KotOR Remake (vs Demon's Souls)
True NextGen Halo Infinite version (vs Horizon)
True NextGen Forza (vs GT7)
True NextGen Banjo-Kazooie (vs Ratchet)
Gears standalone expansion coming this year (vs Spider-Man)
Loads of 3rd party games, timed exclusives, and smaller 1st party games.

And even then, the hype wouldn't match Sony's event because Microsoft's problem goes deeper; their studios are no longer known for their high quality. This is just the way it is until they step up and start actually producing games that sell and score very well.

The two areas where they can realistically outplay Sony are backwards compatibility and launch lineup.

All of that would be great, however you'll just be matching whatever Sony did in their conference. Also don't forget Sony showed that actual console with their conference. They (Sony) played the long game and waited. It worked. D21Lewis was right tho. Xbox would have to go beyond what PS5 did for their conference for people to see that as a win over PS5. I can still see people finding fault in Xbox games just like folks now finding fault in PS5's offerings. So in the end, I'm not sure if it's anything outside of something major that Xbox could do. The price is something to think about. I bet we won't hear anything about prices from either until like September.

Still I like your suggestion. I would play KoTOR over Demon Souls. Banjo-Kazooie would have to be on the level or better with Ratchet & Clank. We already seen how marvelous the last game was. More than likely it'll be the same. Forza vs GT7 would be a hell of a dog fight. We know Forza will deliver. I mean it's easily one of the best racing sims ever. So is GT, but Forza became better than them over the years. A Gears standalone won't be enough to combat the iconic series that is Spiderman. Especially after the last game for Spidey. I would still be excited for Gears tho.

The PS5 conference set a low bar. People learned that they'll be able to play a Spider-Man expansion and some Astrobot software that Sony doesn't dare to charge money for. While the hype is still fresh, it can't take too long until people realize that none of Horizon 2, Gran Turismo 7, Ratchet & Clank and Demon's Souls got a 2021 release window. So what Microsoft needs to do in the first party games department:

This means literally nothing at this point.

Sony never confirmed the PS4 launch titles until the last half of August (should be no surprise that Sony is said to have their next PS5 event in August), and in fact, the finalized launch list never came until end October.

Remember GTA 4? Still I agree that NOW they won't be moneyhatted from either of them because they're trying to maximize their sales and content.

Why are we pretending that MS didn't have a next-gen centered conference? I understand that it was a disappointment, but you can't brush it off just because it was webcam quality.

GT is more of a driving sim. Forza is more of an sim/arcade racer. Not comparable really :P

Huh? Mate, have you played Forza? We're talking about Forza Motorsport here, not Forza Horizon.

So what Microsoft needs to do in the first party games department:

"Here's Halo Infinite. This version was built from the ground up for XSX. You'll be playing it this holiday season."
"And here's Forza Motorsport 8. Same as Halo."

PS5 already wrecked.

We all know that Will hapen, Sony knows that Will hapen, Microsoft fans know that Will hapen , saying a think that we all know its a given is enough for Microsoft to completely destroy a presentation that was praised across the industry is such a wow take.

On topic: its Simple , show games but dont show all your cards because this is a marathon.

Show exclusives that wow US , games that cant BE possible on last GEN. Showing a game from last GEN getting better load times  in your Next GEN console excites no One. Show the reason your Next GEN console is better than anything.

Show surprises, halo is great but we already Saw it. Microsoft needs to BE more than halo, gears and forza.

Show multiplatforms that people give a shit , Sony had ONLY resident evil that excited people.

Show me RPGs lol and its a win already

And yes I have played Forza.

Horizon is more of a arcade racer. Motorsport is more of a racing/driving sim. Totally comparable.
