How Microsoft's Xbox 3 Can Steal the Show at E3 2013

Tynan Muddle at Aussie-Gamer.com writes: "The Electronic Entertainment Expo is just around the corner and if there's one hardware manufacturer that has the most to gain, or lose by their showcase this year, it's Microsoft.

It may be hard to believe that those little wonder-boxes under our TV's are only Microsoft's second iteration of the Xbox system, and if Xbox 3 is to make any sort of public debut this year it will have to be at the worlds' largest gaming convention, E3.

We put together a list of what we think Microsoft will showcase at this years' event, and what we feel it needs to do to steal the show!" (Microsoft, Tag Invalid, Xbox One)

They'd had to do something amazing to get a purchase out of me.
matrixman92  +   549d ago
no always on, can play used games, new ips, blu ray, games, games and more games...only way I will choose it over Sony
zypher  +   549d ago
In other words, you will choose it if it's like the PS4 ...?
matrixman92  +   549d ago
yes, because I already prefer 360 over ps3. So if it will be the exact same, then I will get it over ps4
KentBlake  +   549d ago
PS4 is a day one for me, because I love Sony's exclusives.

Xbox just needs one thing for me to buy it too: exclusives. Not that timed exclusive nonsense, but REAL exclusives, and especially new IPs, since I'm not much of a Halo guy (love Gears, though).

Sony have a 4-6 hr (depending on this May show rumor) and the former in months of an announcement, they have word-wide TV campaign kicking off on May 25th and a console that is due October. MS wouldn't have all this and if they want to launch this year their sales numbers will be low due to the fact pre-orders and high for PS4 and not many people can throgh $600+ on two consoles in 2/3 months, we know the specs will be able the same, so they're not holding it back to improve them, (which is suicide with the price,but not necessary by pushing it to 14.) If Sony do a world wide launch (or hit the world before the Durango), they've got this tied up, They've kicked MS in the pants with Destiny and AC 4 all ready with exclusive DLC. Their only 'mistake' people who don't think logical will think is now disc backwards comparability, but they listened to devs.

You greatly underestimate MS marketing abilities, besides the 360 was announced a few weeks prior to E3 last time and did just fine.

MS will have the new Xbox plastered in front of everyone's face whether they like it or not. The 360 dashboard will be powerful enough marketing tool for anyone that uses Live.

So wait ... Cirque d Solei (sp) & Usher wasn't enough before?

Not have those overly staged presentations which has an audience straight out of an GAP catalog? Not having Kinect as part of each one either.
level 360  +   549d ago
Games and not gimmicks is what I want.
RuleofOne343  +   549d ago
Agree to everything except the handheld concept , they would just suffer as we all know Nintendo owns that market .
# 6 Do what you do & take no prisoners

By showing up and displaying the perfect system everyone wants...or by announcing the system ready to hit retail along with multiple AAA titles ready to ship with launch.

Biggest gaming coup EVER!

=P
nigelp520  +   549d ago
No used games ban
No ALWAYS ON
Alot of Hardcore exclusives
ACESupERIC  +   549d ago
Everthing nigel said and free multiplayer. I don't care about the rest of xbox lives"features" Let the people who do care pay for the other crap. GIMME FREE MULTIPLAYER DAMMIT!!!! I've already paid for my internet, my xbox and my game. I use windows on my pc and still game without paying extra. I have netflix on my tv, pc, and ps3 and phone. Guess what! I only pay netflix and my service providers for this. MS! TEAR DOWN THAT PAYWALL!

Free online, focus on new game play experience through core genres, rift support, more immersion blurring the reality/fantasy line, and new ips.
DivineAssault  +   549d ago
only way is to build a more powerful system than PS4, have more features, announce multiple AAA exclusives (1st-3rd), & be cheaper
urwifeminder  +   549d ago
They just have to show up sony have nothing for me.
