Tbh Microsoft, Phil Spencer and co have been hyping this to the moon. One hour should have been enough to showcase what Xbox has to offer next generation and we didn't really see that. Heck, we didn't anything running on the Series X from first party. You don't hype a console on teasers. At the same time you don't show your flagship game running on a PC at the state its in, in a few months from launch.
Microsoft should have showed more of Medium and CrossFire X. Those look good, and clearly are further down in development and more ready to be presented. They didn't learn anything from their criticisms from their first event. CGI trailers and teasers doesn't mean anything other than its going to be a while away until it see's the light of day.
The game announcements were actually good, there just wasn't enough to show what exactly you were getting with the Series X. Other than most of the big hitters are coming to Gamepass.
They have another event next month but honestly its first impressions that really count on console reveals and they kinda blew it, twice.
