dont make me bring up the killzone trailer

And? Do you actually think I am going to defend that?

Not to mention, it’s irrelevant. If anything, it proves my point further; reveal trailers and demos tend to be a lot more polished than the actual final product. Keeping that in mind, how does bringing Killzone up help? Unless you expect Halo to look worse than what we’ve seen (which is a possibility), then yeah, I can see why you want to bring it up.

You can not be that naive, it's embarrassing how you're willing to bend over for MS. Are you a new gamer or something? Has Xbox-exclusive output been so dry that you forgot how games should look like when they're revealed? 

Always nice to see implied posts that I like being sexually assaulted, or I am a lesser gamer because I like a different platform, and generally being smug/condescending when I tried to be respectful. (Chefs kiss) Always enjoy talking to PS fans. 

For the record I too was critical of the graphics but personally I’m just glad they nailed the art style, music and gameplay. Hoping they can do what they can with the lighting and textures but at least it won’t be a downgrade situation like other games in the past. 

PS fans?

You quoted me with a non-sense reply that shows your blind faith in MS, I got moderated for my choice of words, but the truth is, if this was SONY justifying a botched reveal, you wouldn't have bought "but it's an earlier build!!!1!!!", and you would be doing the right thing. 

And I don't understand the satisfaction with Halo's "nailed art-style". If it doesn't make the game less of an eye sore, then 343 definitely didn't nail shit. Breath of The Wild, on the other hand, just blows me away each time I pick it up. Now that's a game with an art-style that actually makes you forget that this is a Wii U game.

If Rare doesn't even know what the gameplay of Everwild is going to be yet then WTF was the point of showing it? For art style? Big whoop. If there is no gameplay then I don't care as a person watching and potential customer. Gameplay trailers only. Man what a concept. Showing gameplay for a video game. You can show all the CGI or art concept videos all you want but if no gameplay then what is the point?

Does Rare really not know what the gameplay will be like? I had no idea! Everwild was of the few memorable moments during the show, if true, MS failed miserably.... and everyone thought it would be easy for them to "one up" Sony...

Okay, So let me see if I understand how this works, people here able to bring up Sony games when they put Sony in a good light, but when they do the opposite then it is "hey, guys let's just keep this about Microsoft, okay?" Is that how this work over here?


Why is it wrong to bring up the Killer instinct trailer? I see people here all the time saying that they don't trust Microsoft because of Scalebound, Ryse, Crackdown, etc.


So why are we not able to say that we do not trust Sony because they straight up lied with the Killzone trailer? or with the Ghost of Tsushima gameplay downgrade?

Oh and btw, ONE Sony executive saying something means Sony said it, the same way ONE Microsoft executive saying something means MS said it.

I am not a Sony fan, the reason I listed Sony games is because they’re a direct competitor (duh) and they’ve been consistent and transparent this entire generation when it comes to graphics what is in-game graphics and what isn't, what is exclusive and what isn’t, Phil & Aaron, on the other hand, have been spinning and flip flopping for years (SF5 vs Tomb raider comes to mind), it just doesn’t bode well for Halo. 

Not happy with my list of games? Fine, here is the unarguable truth: no first or third party flagship reveal was botched the way Halo infinite was, and even the exceptions you all are trying to bring up, they were all "downgrades", rarely games manage to look better than what they were like when initially shown. Which raises the question; why are you bringing up examples of games that you believe were downgraded? Unless you're expecting Halo to receive a downgrade, it doesn't make sense to bring KZ up.

The only other plausible explanation for doing so is that you are illogically deflecting by digging up dirt on a competitor, regardless of the how relevant the dirt is. Reminds of era when the only response to the PS3 lack of exclusives was "bUt RRoD!11!!", puh lease, you can all do better.

222 votes. approximately 60% consider the Sony conference to be 8 or more.
167 votes. approximately 60% consider the Xbox conference to be 6 or less.

It seems safe to note that the general opinion is that Sony had a better conferences. let's see how the next "round" will be, possibly in August.



Prediction: In 5 years Nintendo will Lauch a "Core Mario game"  very similar to Astro Bot. That said, many will Ignore Astro Bot existence and say Nintendo created this concept.

Here's hoping Microsoft shows something worthwhile, because so far we only have a couple 'okay' games or games with some potential but not enough info.

I think it will be a strong gameplay showing. There's no way hey mess up their next gen showing a 3rd time.

We don't really need to wait for the showcases to know the results. I can tell you the results right now: More people here will give a better score to Sony's presentation.

Errr

1st) I just used your list as an example to make a point. I wasn't trying to debate whatever you guys were talking about (which is why I did not answer to you directly).

2nd) Did I find Halo's graphics disappointing? Yes. But at least MS had the decency to show exactly what they are selling so people can know exactly what they're going to get if they decide to buy, and didn't go out their way to create a shiny gameplay just to release the game downgraded later on. I respect that.

I agree. Indeed, imho Xbox will need many years to catch up whit Playstation on the "exclusives race". I mean, there is a gigantic abyss of superiority in favor of Playstation, damn Naugthy Dog alone got more awards than all Xbox studios combined!! (source: https://gotypicks.blogspot.com/)

Anyway, i hope Xbox will make evolution in the comming gen, i will more than happily play Age of empires and other of their games that pick my attention on my PC. Also, competition is good for all of us, Playstation and Xbox only tend to evolve when there is competition.

I mean, yeah. Probably. since, you know, Sony has a better track record of delivering the goods, it's a fair assumption based on past data that they will continue to deliver the goods.

No real interest in any discussion and no counter points whatsoever, which is understandable since the event sucked so hard there is not much you could say but resorting to snarky remarks and the obsessive need to have the last word. Think sort of attitude is more suitable for youtube.....
