I hope we gonna see GAMES and i mean NEW games,not kinect 2.0 presentation with animals,kids etc...
Jek_Porkins  +   871d ago
Aaron Greenberg already stated that May 21st is all about the next Xbox, so I'd suspect we'll see the console, get it's name, features and a few games showing off the new tech, but E3 is all about "tons" of exclusive game reveals.

I want to see the console, see some games, features, the controllers!

Btw #xboxreveal isn't trending.
duli14  +   871d ago
ooh great so tomorrow won't be about games, we just have to wait till E3. E3 comes around and there still won't be any games....and so the wait begins till next E3. How many E3's is MS going to make us wait??

"but E3 is all about "tons" of exclusive game reveals"

Are you sure you are not setting your hopes up just a little too high? There hasn't been tons of exclusive games outside casual ones in years.

Actually im more interested in seeing what new Kinect is capable of becouse i doubt they will surprise me in graphics department. And games will be games. Probably same old with better graphics, thats all.
Tacklebait  +   870d ago
as much as i dont use my kinect. i agree with you a bit on this one.
duli14  +   871d ago
MS is behind with the games, remember the rumours that popped up? They seem to be true considering how short the event is. Its either that or MS just don't have many games to show.
andibandit  +   871d ago
They said they wont be showing games until E3......surprising you missed that information since every third post here mentions it
Soldierone  +   871d ago
1 I hope Call of Duty is not all they have....

2 I hope Call of Duty actually looks good.... lol
evilhasitsway  +   871d ago
Im going on a limb and saying cod is probley the best game they will show for sure. and I hope they use a new engine for this cod instead of recycling the same game over and over with just added features.
jeffgoldwin  +   871d ago
Destiny>CoD. But I like CoD too. Despite all the elitests here on N4G over that game.

Cheers both. I make that 5pm GMT where I am. Should be interestng.
Kalowest  +   871d ago
I suck at the Time Zone thing(pretty sad IK).
I live in GA US, so would it be 10am for me?
Dlacy13g  +   871d ago
If you live in GA you should be East Coast Time Zone...i.e. EST. So for you @kalowest...1pm EST. 10 am is for those on the West Coast like California.
biRdy  +   871d ago
@Kalowest no GA, US is Eastern Time so it would be 1:00 pm for you

On topic:
I really can't wait to see what Microsoft will show tomorrow!

I think whatever is out first in uk and Europe people will buy it. I mean Sony need to do a global launch or they will lose out normally they leave out Europe 4 months after releasing in America and Japan they cannot do this but probably will.
SDF Repellent  +   871d ago
One hour is perfect. Save the 2 hour main event for E3 so they don't give away too much information to the competitors heading into E3.

1. Things I expected from tomorrow: Name of console, Showing the Actual hardware, Windows 8 integration, Skype and Kinect, information about specs and the features, showing the controller. Showing a few games (COD Ghost, something from EA, maybe Square Enix, A racing game (either Forza 5 or PGR), and maybe a last minute surprise from Either Epic or Rare).

Square Enix will probably come to the stage, show the same trailer they've been demonstrating for the last year, then announce to the world that they'll be making an announcement at E3. Nah, Im just being cynical. No company would do that at the launch of a new console in front of the entire gaming world....
LoneWolf019  +   871d ago
That sounds about right. And not really appeasing either.
Bigpappy  +   871d ago
Correct SDF repellent. This is hardware reveal. This is not E3. Any games shown will highlight hardware feature or demonstrate graphic fidelity. They my just show a few more teasers just to highlight developer support. But, this is not the place to announce new IPs and such.
boodeefukc  +   871d ago
I just hope to see a controller and it better be at least as great as the 360's. Ergonomics is key to gaming.
CRAIG667  +   871d ago
I know I will take some stick for saying this but the controller is one of the main factors in me favouring my xbox over my PS3 this gen, I always wonder how much more time I would have put into gaming on my PS3 had it had a controller that was more comfortable for me,it is very important to me microsoft dont stray to far from the current design and having said that, the new PS4 controller looks like it will be far superior than their last iteration...
brave27heart  +   871d ago
It might only be an hour but this is an American company, Im expecting a show.

Here in the UK driving round an oval circuit for hours on end would be dull and boring, in America you guys have turned Nascar into an extraveganza.

Sony does the subtle understated approach, MS will be all razamataz and jazz hands. Even if, like me, you have zero intention of buying an Xbox, its still going to worth watching.
WeAreLegion  +   871d ago
Subtle? Understated? Sony?

evilhasitsway  +   871d ago
anyone know what time this is suppose to start central time. and were I can watch it they are advertising it like sony did.
SignifiedSix91  +   871d ago
it starts at 12PM central time. Its showing on spike, or if you have a gold live account, you can watch it on the live event player.

I think gametrailers is streaming it live also.

evilhasitsway  +   871d ago
no ign oh well I guess ill try to catch it on spike. why so early though ps4 was around 6pm
WooHooAlex  +   871d ago
The first fifteen minutes will probably be them announcing and explaining the console, outlining the specs. Then you would think they'll spend at least a half-hour announcing and showing off games. Probably a ten minute or so stage demo for Call of Duty. Then they'll get into Kinect and new XBL features.

Squeezing all that into one hour doesn't seem likely, guessing they'll save a lot of that stuff for E3.
Soldierone  +   871d ago
Thats why I think the games will be skipped till E3. They are playing Sonys game now, and need to keep something back.

They will probably announce games, but only show off a very few. COD will probably be the "example" title, where they use it's gameplay to show off the controller and social features.

The rest of the time will be release time frame, possible prices, specs, features, Live changes, new multi-media, and blatant attacks at Sony lol
DiRtY  +   871d ago
This event will be all about the hardware with Software following 3 weeks later at E3. So don't expect many games to be shown just yet.

But anyways there are 2 games confirmed right now and those are CoD and Fifa. And PGR 5 or a new Forza will be confirmed as well since MacLaren said it:



LoneWolf019  +   871d ago
Oh boy more racing.
DiRtY  +   871d ago
Oh and while we are at it:

a new UFC game will be there as well:


Seems like the rumored deal between MS and EA was true - whatever this will mean in detail.
Soldierone  +   871d ago
If MS had some timed exclusive deal with EA, then I've lost all hope in that company.... honestly. Tick off your fans even more while you are already in hot water EA and watch what happens.
braydox21  +   870d ago
Don't forget Usher unless they are saving him for E3
ninjagoat  +   871d ago
Hmm half an hour to talk specs and half an hour to show some games.
illtownNJONE  +   871d ago
I honestly think we're gonna be blown away....idk I just have that feeling
UnHoly_One  +   871d ago
I think so, too.

I think all the haters are going to be a little surprised by what they have to show.
stargatefan   871d ago | Spam
bobacdigital  +   871d ago
They will do exactly what Sony did..

Show controller
Talk Specs
Show GUI changes (windows integration)
Show key third party games

They will save Kinect 2 for E3 along with whatever 1st party studio games they have going...

I am going to go out on limb and say COD will only be higher texture / resolution version of the previous COD.. The engine will be the exact same as the previous iterations.
mochachino  +   871d ago
It better not be full of CG trailers and BS Kinect promises. It needs actually gameplay.
CEOSteveBallmer  +   871d ago
Im a PS gamer and I am very very interested and intrigued at Xbox reveal event. Almost the same feeling I have when waiting for PS4 event back in feb.
TemplarDante  +   871d ago
If Kinect occupies even 5 min of that time, or Windows 8 functionality, its a waste. Too short, should be 2HRs.
creized1  +   870d ago
Plus EA going to be there to show Fifa and Activision for their new COD
Keep deleting minutes.
1Hour is not enough for me at least...

They might not have them finalized yet but will see tomorrow should be interesting ;)
Sevir  +   871d ago
hmmm. not sure about that legnth when you're unveiling your next gen console
when they announced Kinect a few years back they had a cirque Du Sole.

This is really interesting that They invite people to their campus for ONE hour to talk about the Next gen Xbox... My guess is they'll only show off COD:Ghost and that'll be to close out the show... So they'll spend 45-50 minutes, talking about, TV, Kinect 2, The name of the Xbox, the Controller and then say launching holiday 2013 and show off COD... a multiplatform cross gen game!

Somehow i feel this maybe underwhelming but i'm jumping the gun. I'll wait to see. N4G is sure to be a different place tomorrow!...
