Microsoft talks next-gen Xbox reveal, 'tonnes' of Xbox exclusives to be announced at E3

Microsoft has discussed its plans for next Tuesday's Xbox Reveal event, confirming that next week's announcement will be about "laying the foundation" and taking an "inside look at the making of the new [Xbox] platform and the team that's brought it to life," before revealing "tonnes of exclusives" at next month's E3. (Microsoft, Xbox One)

Microsoft will use E3 to reveal more about the titles headed to the next Xbox, Greenberg says.

"E3 is all about the games," he continues. "At E3, I mean, if you're a gamer, it's going to be tonnes of exclusives, world premieres, and obviously even beyond that we have a lot to share between then and this holiday."

I didn't think I could get anymore excited...I'm about to wet myself with anticipation!

Megatons incoming!

That's great news if they do indeed have tons of exclusives, shows that they've been listening to what gamers want :)

let's see how much truth are there in these words because it's every year the same speach and the haven't been able to reinvent something else than Halo and Forza for all these years (Gears is a 3rd party obviously).

At E3 they always talk too much about xbox live and services, i really hope they will be able to show something for gamers this time because it's gonna be hard for them to top all Sony's first party games in terms of quantity
Gildarts  +   470d ago
That seems to be their new direction they have been really listening. With Windows 8 and Windows Phone. And now it seems they're doing the same for Xbox.

This is exactly what many gamers wanted to hear for E3, "Tonnes of exclusives and world premieres"

Yeah...finally, it only took them, what...4 years

I'm still on the fence with this one...remember before Kinect was going to launch and even after

"We have a ton of exclusives to show off"

"We have a load of hardcore games for you guys"

"Kinect is for the hardcore"

Lie, after lie, after lie.

So yeah...sorry but I don't think I can take them seriously

We'll see though when E3 comes around. I mean to them exclusives could count timed exclusives or Kinect games that we probably won't care about

I don't really care about how many games they list that would not go to PS4 or Wii-U. I just want to see the console will perform really well and that I will have some kickass games to play on it.

I also want to see what is new with Kinect and how they will handle previous games that people down loaded on XBLA. Would also be nice to see any adjustments to the Dash and menu system, and what ever else they change on Xbox Live. Exciting stuff (All of it).

What has amazed me the most so far though, is how little I know about the system which will be revealed in a few days and with E# right around the corner. I would have thought, with the PS4 already ousted, that that they would have been a lot of leaks about what M$ is bringing to the table. I can't remember ever knowing so little about a console before its veal or this close to E3. Even developers are dead silent. It does speak to the amount of influence they now have in the industry.

Holding such a big chunk of the market in the West is a major power position to hold.

more like they want to build the fanbase as fast as possible to then rest on their laurels while cashing-in on XBL fees and multiplats, or at least that's how MS played it this gen. Strong start but weak middle and end.

Can people please stop the fanboy crap?

We (yup, WE, I'm one of the PS guys) all had been saying that MS needed to step their library up, that it needed to be more about games. Now that's exactly what they are saying they'll do.

I'm not saying you have to believe it, I personally have doubts, but it's not like we know differently, so all we can do is wait and see. And for once, DO IT. Let's try and maybe start this gen in a better mood we started the last one, there no need for this all over again...

I think that they have known what gamers want all along, it's clear that "gamer's want games"... Perhaps they will go for the hardcore with more effort this time around, (I certanly hope so)... They have been looking to get deeper into the overall media and casuals World and will continue to do so, it is a business, but I hope they really do look to boost the hardcore games library along with it......

But they seem real sure with this latest statement, I hope they come through, as I want them to succeed, as I do all the systems, more top notch quality to choose from, and competition breeds higher levels of quality...

Love to see a true Banjo platformer, Black tusk's new IP, and something new from Gears 4, and Respawns new IP too....... Wonder about any surprise "only on XBOX announcements" too.. Sure PS4 will have something surprising too... New IP's and 1st party "hardcore" exclusives are what I want most..

"Megatons incoming!"

After more than 4 years of underdelivery in their E3 conferences, I'm not expecting much from them. The best bet is them announcing 2-3 new IPs from third party studios and filling the rest of the show with Halo and Forza and how they renewed their contract with Activision and how next Xbox users will get the DLCs a month early again.
Reibooi  +   469d ago
I hope they have lots of exclusives because I mean great games are great games regardless of console.

That said given the MS track record of the last few years I'm keep my expectations really low. So many of their 1st party Studios are either gone or mere husks of what they used to be I find it hard to imagine where these tons of exclusives would even come from.

I want something new. I don't want another Fable, Forza, Halo or Gears. If they can bring a few new and interesting IP's I'll be happy but I hope we don't get like one new game from the above series and a ton of shovelware kinect stuff and tons of talk about entertainment apps and what not.
imdaboss1  +   469d ago
Dont know why xboxfanboys say MS have a lot of studios when they dont at all..the 360 only had very few exclusive games..and no one even cared about it..when ms start showing games then ill believe them but i doubt it..
Biohazard8860  +   470d ago

brave27heart  +   469d ago
Really depends on what they mean. For example Sony could announce that they have tonnes of exclusive games coming to PS4 including Killzone, Drive Club, Knack, Infamous, Gran Turismo, God of War, Uncharted, New game from Quantic Dreams, Little big planet, Sly Cooper, Ni No Kuni sequel, Last of Us sequel, Resistance...

The thing is only the first four have been confirmed as being in development, but you'd put money that those other franchises will make it to PS4 at some point in the future so they wouldnt be lying.

MS could do the same and say We have Halo, Forza, Gears and Fable coming to the Nextbox, but that doesnt mean they're close to being finished or even in development yet.

Until things are officially announced its all just speculation.

Boody-Bandit  +   470d ago
I hope you're wrong (Kinect games). I want more core games for me and not XBA or Kinect games. I really hope MS brings the heat and has some new potential block buster IP's like they did with Gears this gen. Even if it's a whole new franchise from Epic, 343, Rare or Turn 10.

Hell I'd be off the charts excited if MS announced a new Killer Instinct. I don't need a ton of new exclusives. I will be happy with just a couple new IP's for the hardcore crowd.

Anyway, I'm sure this showing on the 21st will be all apps and things no one cares about and MS will save all major gaming related bits for E3.

Should be a good showing if they forget about Kinect and the casuals that won't be watching E3...

It's a lot of laying the foundation, probably the best way to describe it. And then just a couple of weeks later we go to E3."

So basically they're doing Sony's PS4 Announcement Event, with fewer games / just a few demo reels, a possible hardware showing, and saving everything else for E3 3 weeks later. About what I expected.

Sony took the approach gamers and developers first, MS is trying to do the same. They NEVER go into details about their products, or the history of how it was made, and now they change face and do it is what I was getting at tas far as it's going to be like Sony's.

And what exactly has MS released in that same span of time besides a Gears prequel that wasn't as good as the previous games, or an arcade version of Forza with a boring handling model? Journey alone was better than just about anything MS has put out the last few years. All those other games you mentioned were great in my opinion (Motorstorm RC being the exception). Just because they didn't appeal to you doesn't mean they didn't provide the excitement and variety (key word there) that keeps Sony fans coming back. Oh, and even with PS4 coming out this fall, PS3 owners still have TLoU and GT6 to look forward to. I'm sure MS will continue to support the 360 too. I mean, look at how well they continued to support the original Box after the 360 had been announced...

@ Rainstorm81/JP39 No its not hate, he's the one going out of his way to troll a 360 related news about whats to come, why should I not point out why I disagree...and again its become a common theme for sony fanboys to act as if the only exclusives that matter are ps3 exclusive. Of course that's fine if you feel that way but if you're going to wave ps3 pom-poms in a 360 thread no less, then at least be upfront about it and lets see a fair comparison of what games you are speaking of compared to what games you think are so terrible on the other console.

Also the reason I gave a timeframe on it is because both consoles imo had better games at the start of this gen, mostly due to new IP's, leap in graphics, features, fresh hardware, etc that comes with the start of a gen and now BOTH have been hit with the sequel bug that comes with the latter part of a platform generation (its not a bad thing, just doesn't have the same awe factor). Sony does have some new stuff in the pipeline as I'm sure Microsoft will once we get to the May 21st and E3 so the point is sony fanboys blow a lot of hot air about current times with talk of whats to come in the future,...BOTH have plenty to play and those games I quickly listed was to point out that ps3 hasn't pumped out anything lately 360 fans are envious of yet all I keep hearing you guys talk like ps3 has all these games while 360 owners have nothing to play, lol sure its opinion but I'll take my one Halo4 vs ten of the latest KZ, SOCOM, and Resistance games. Now of course its a matter of taste so that likely goes for ps3 fans about 360 games, truth is owners of both like me probably have enjoyed a helluva lot more multiplats over the last 2 yrs than exclusives because I buy games that appeal to me not because they are "teh exclusive".

Last years big exclusives off the top of ny head:

Trials Evolution
Minecraft
Witcher 2
Forza Horizon

Starhawk
LBP Karting
PSASBR
Twisted Metal

Its all subjective but critically and also imo the 360 lineup was stronger.

2013 is a different story though.
Why o why  +   469d ago
Way too many apologists.

Think of this senerio.

All of your multiplats are played on your primary console.

The only reason your secondary console gets air time is because of its exclusive games or services.

Would you want more reason to use your secondary or less. That's how it is for me and many others. I don't like every ps exclusive so the more the merrier as I have a broader pool to choose from and no, they don't have to be blockbusters. I want the same from ms. Many great games from before I owned one have been added to my 360 library. Once my ignorance to the better games I'd not considered were enjoyed I wanted more. Thanks to those who recommended games I may of missed, yourself included.

Now it seems like wanting and enjoying more exclusives is taboo. How times have changed. Let's at least acknowledge, exclusives are more tailor made to make best use of the respective hardwares. How many this gen have won game of the year. That's right. The majority. Coincidence, loyalist spew or just facts. 3 new ips this year for the struggling company whilst the well off company gets a free pass

"It's going to be tonnes of exclusives" i.e. timed exclusives means the same thing.

", world premieres" i.e. A game will debut at the Microsoft event and then be at the Sony one the next day anyway or just simply a game coming to all platforms anyway just like with past E3s like RE5, Fallout3, "Metal Gear Solid Rising".

That is what these statements pretty much mean. No need to get excited for nothing.
Jek_Porkins  +   470d ago
Microsoft has 20+ first party studios and you don't think they'll have anything to show off at E3? What in the world do you figure these studios have been up to?

We know they'll have second and third party support with games like Alan Wake 2, Project Gotham Racing 5, Ryse and the possibility of Titan from Respawn Entertainment, and that isn't even hitting on a single first party game.

I'm curious as to if people think all 20+ studios are going to do nothing? Kinect? I mean if you think 20+ studios are doing all Kinect you might be in for a bit of a shock, even if half their studios went casual and Kinect 2, that leaves 11+ doing core, throw in the second and third party and you have the makings of a lineup for everyone, every type of gamer.

You like kinect exclusives?. Then that's your opinion and demand more of it. But i don't so i demand more serious games. If they don't deliver then i complain. Didn't happen?. Then it's their lost...

Same applied to the vita. I don't like the focus on indie games. I want more serious games. Is that a bad thing?.

Note: Not all gamers post videos and show off about their games. I just play games then sell them so i can buy other games and others enjoy what i enjoyed. Even if i did it's not a wrong thing to be fan of games and put an art of them on a wall. It's just like any other hobby. Sports fans put T shirts on the wall and stuff like that too..

@14Feb-R

you should read my comment again. I like serious games as you called them. That is why I mentioned Halo, Gears and Alan Wake. I am a core gamer as well (Heck I am debating on N4G!), but I don't see judgement day coming when I play a Kinect game with a couple of friends though.

hardcore gamers need to stop thinking they are superior in any way and actually try a Kinect game with their girlfriends from time to time. But that is the main problem again. Look at arbitor - he never had a girlfriend and probably never will.
I_am_Batman  +   470d ago
@Dirty: Did you really just played the "nerdy hardcore gamer doesn't have a girlfriend" card? I mean really? (talking about feeling superior to others)

By the way playing Gears, Halo and Alan Wake doesn't make you a hardcore gamer. These are top selling games that everybody knows about and most 360 owners have played.

Just to clarify I don't think that casual games are bad but MS has to offer some new things too the early adopters as well. Nobody would even complain about Kinect if Microsoft would still provide a steady stream of new serious games from time to time like they did in the first 4 years of 360's life cycle.

They'll have to convince me that they won't drop the core after a couple of years this time around.

Can't wait to get my hands on this Home theater/gaming PC hybrid.

Please announce audiophile and videophile hardware. I know the console will attempted to be the most powerful ever created, that is a given, just need the top notch sound and video capability. MSFT was able to achieve historic secrecy with this platform, so nobody could follow suit with hardware and other offerings even if they could afford to.

I think that Microsoft is gonna have a good showing at E3 this time around! I can't wait for the next XBOX and PS4! I feel bad for the Wii U though. They should have dropped the tablet controller and went cheap price point or truly went next gen and still dropped the tablet controllers lol!!!!!
Blackdeath_663  +   470d ago
the tablet is not the problem for the wiiu and while the hardware is underpowered they proved last gen that they can still make an underpowered console successful. they had all the media attention and interest the only thing they are lacking is the games and third party support. being slammed repeatedly by ea and other developers like the just cause devs doesn't help either. they should have gotten some feedback from devs on their console when they were developing it in the end they made a console that no one is really interested in

Interesting side note... Microsoft still has in place their exclusivity deal for content in place until Dec. 31, 2013. One has to wonder if there is a renewal clause in that to extend it? And if so...could it be extended to not just the 360 but to the next xbox?
Lucreto  +   470d ago
It sounds too good to be true but I am not holding my breath.

I am expecting more exclusive Kinect games and a few 3rd party timed exclusives.

I am tired of these timed third Party exclusives they work for Microsoft in the short run but causes problems in the long run.

A serious question how many of these timed exclusives has Sony lost over they years compared to Microsoft?
MrBeatdown  +   470d ago
Same here. We've heard this all from Greenburg before...

http://www.oxm.co.uk/20937/...

We all know how that turned out... two Gears, two Forzas, and a Halo over three years.

Plus, after telling us the likes of BioShock, GTA DLC, and Fallout DLC were true exclusives, only to have them end up on PS3 a year later, I'd have to be pretty naive to take them at their word any more.
YodaCracker  +   470d ago
Microsoft does not allow games on their console unless they release simultaneously with other versions. That's why when Microsoft stole exclusives (like GTA IV, FFXIII, etc) they all released day and date with the PS3 version.

Sony does not have this rule, so they get the 360's hand-me-downs like Mass Effect 2, haha! Sony does require exclusive bonus content when a game comes to their platform late, though.
Rainstorm81  +   470d ago
Now explain how any of that is good for gaming?

I'd rather Sony or Microsoft to have the game fully exclusive instead of all this extra timed exclusive/exclusive content BS....that just fuels fanboy battles and hurts gaming and gamers

@ Rainstorm81

Exactly. These MS-defending clowns only care about their selfish experiences in the closed and extortionate Xbox ecosystem.

I hate the fact that timed-exclusivity has been accepted as an industry norm. MS has fueled this negatively, and now Sony does it, which sucks for everyone really, as it spreads across the industry like a friggin disease. It's inorganic, false and lazy. Good for business, bad for consumers.

As far as what is good for consumers and the industry of large, these people couldn't care less. When the sensible consumers try to tell them of how MS's actions adversely affect the industry, it's called out as fanboyism. Any other logical mind would agree with a stronger and more consumer-minded industry.

"I'd rather Sony or Microsoft to have the game fully exclusive instead of all this extra timed exclusive/exclusive content BS....that just fuels fanboy battles and hurts gaming and gamers"

-Well that's because only fanboys really care, with a very few select exceptions most of the timed exclusive stuff isn't all that significant to warrant you not buying or waiting to play the game on your favorite console, skins, side character, a map, a weapon, etc is just crumbs and I never hear any gamer in the real world say they are not buying or are going to buy a game they like because of some timed exclusive content. With that said its a poor excuse to blame time exclusive content for hurting gaming, no fanboys demonizing a particular brand is whats hurting gaming, along with of course all the greedy DLC tricks and tactics, etc started this gen to nickel and dime the consumer.

DigitalRaptor,
Oh so its Microsoft's fault for "time exclusivity" when sony does it, just like Microsoft forced sony to implement "online pass", expensive proprietary memory cards for PS Vita, replying in forums that cross game chat would be implemented when they knew it wasn't, removing BC/features ps3 use to have, saying the cell was the future and now with them dumping the cell this will create compatibility issues with ps4 in regards to BC, etc. Really although I wish it was different I choose not to dwell on it so the point is there are things you can find to complain about with both but of course you have an agenda to only point out microsofts flaws, and then act as if you have some noble consumer interest at heart. FACT= Both sony and microsoft have made mistakes, both still have some business practices that are NOT in the consumers best intertest, both have pros and cons= anyone who denies that or spends all their time, praising one while bashing the other is without a doubt the worst kind of overzealous fanboy. Why not just enjoy both or since its clear that you hate Microsoft why not just be a playstation fan?, which is very much different than a playstation fanboy.

I cannot imagine this place when E3 rolls around and Microsoft happens to have a great show with lots of exclusives. This thread is already filled with jealously and trolls.

If you don't like Microsoft and aren't interested in the next Xbox or it's games why bother trolling about it or posting?

Seems to me that whenever positive news comes out about the next Xbox people get a little testy, and nervous, let the Xbox fans enjoy their show, just like the PlayStation fans got to enjoy that reveal, I've never seen so much insecurity over gaming consoles in my life.

Sometimes it's better to just have each others backs as gamer's, instead of pissing contests, Microsoft is obviously coming to the next gen table ready to eat.

People troll all the time. PS isn't immune to it. People to this day say the reveal was a disappointment simply because they didn't see the box as oppose to being disappointed with the content showed at the event. Hell, correct me if I'm wrong, but I recall you saying nothing wowed you at the PS4 reveal not that anything is wrong with that it's your opinion after all, but I'd bet most MS fans would consider it trolling if someone where to say that about the next-gen Xbox reveal come Tuesday. It is what it is. No need to sweat the haters.

Look at the comments here, look at the disagrees I got for simply saying I was excited, point out to me anywhere on this site where someone getting excited about something Sony related would end up with 30+ disagrees.

I do agree we all have our opinion, and there is a difference between having an opinion and trolling. Saying "Prepare for Kinect" is trolling, where as saying "I hope this is true" would be an opinion.

I said I was disappointed that there was no console shown and that the games were run on PC instead of the actual PS4 hardware, but overall I was impressed, and actually, this topic has absolutely nothing to do with Sony whatsoever.

If you don't see that this thread has been majorly overrun with trolls and ignorance, I don't really know what to say, it's obviously rubbing people here the wrong way that Microsoft wants to put out games and actually put up a fight next generation. I truly think people here were happier believing Microsoft was going to block used games, six months behind on games, DRM and all that BS.

Don't try and convince me that PS gets trolled as much as Microsoft or Nintendo around here, that's just lying to yourself.
Outside_ofthe_Box  +   470d ago
Why does it matter if one is trolled more than the other? So as long as there is an equal amount of trolling for each platform it's fair game? So because PS is trolled less it's okay to troll it? My point is that all 3 have trolls and fanboys. Insecurities all around.

SonyPS4  +   470d ago
No, I actually agree, and I am looking forward to neither Killzone or Infamous. Chances are slim of me getting a PS4 on day 1, and if so it is for Knack which is a new IP I am very well interested in. Believe me, I am sick of Sony's IPs getting put on such high pedestal myself. I have yet to play Killzone 3, Infamous 2, Starhawk, the new God of War, etc. Guess what, chances are I will not even bother. The fanboys trolling nearly every PC and Nintendo thread about these Sony games have left me a bad taste in my mouth about those exact games. More harm than good ever comes out of trolling outsiders in the name of your little cult of nerds.

A7XEric  +   470d ago
Tons of exclusives? So Halo 4, Gears 4, Forza 5, and some garbage casual game from Rare that no one wants?

But cynicism aside, I'm excited. Microsoft's first 3 or 4 years this gen were amazing, but over the past few years they've lost more and more 1st party developers and lost some exclusive franchises too. They need to really wow us.
Freak of Nature  +   470d ago
I agree, I want rare to show at least some of it's former glory, and a company like rare can still attract alot of real top flight talent, so you cannot say never, but still don't hold your breath, just hope for the best....Rare will be used for more than Kinect and avatars this time around from all the rumors, at least I hope so.... A proper Banjo or Conker, or better yet, have them team up.

Actually they do have some exclusives already known beyond the Halo's Gears and Forza's..... Black Tusk's new IP, Project Gotham's return has been rumored, Respawns new IP. Alan Wake 2, Ryse.... So they look to be thinking hardcore much more than what we saw in the last few years... I hope they really bring it, and even another surprise or two would be just fine with me... I hope timed exclusives and exclusive download's are not the main core of "ton's of exclusives"....

Its funny how ps fanboys
Say MS needs more than halo and gears, forza but less put it in perspective
Sony only have 3 franchises on the level of halo and gears
Uncharted, GOW, and gran turismo
The rest are B plus games in my opinion(killzone,Infamous,Resi stance, buy the sales) they are on the same level of Alan wake for MS
I have both systems and a wii U and I always buy every system
What games are better that's subjective im not here to argue that im going off sales and mass market appeal for this gen(so dont tell me God of war has so many more copies sold when you are counting the ps2 and psp and vita versions of games)
I agree sony comes out with more AAA games than MS
But that is not always good
First because just because its a big budget AAA game dont mean its good
Lair and MAG were AAA games
Second they seem to cancel each other out at times
