E3 is last stand for Microsoft they have to bring some of the best games ever and fill the show with games and games to make people forget this diabolical piece of crap that is Xbox One and its reveal.
creatchee  +   920d ago
Microsoft stated on numerous occasions that the reveal was going to focus on hardware, interface, and apps. They further stated that E3 was where the games would be shown and detailed.

Reveal comes along, people say "where are the games?"

People need to pay more attention when they are given information instead of complaining later when they were expecting something that wasn't supposed to be there in the first place.

I was under the impression that the UK was Xbox's home away from home (US) no?

By a wide margin too.

The XBOX ONE has changed the industry as we know it. Finally we are going to see a generation that changes the way we play games - and for the better. If that underwhelms someone then that person needs to seek therapy.

This guy was probably one of the M$ employees clapping in the back of room at the conference.
Bhuahahaha  +   920d ago
it surely does change the industry

its worst now

we play games with handcuffs now.
we dont own anything if microsoft decide to shut it down you cant do anything about it.
10-20yrs from now you will just look the picture of the game you rent and think "how i wish to play this again"

I'm not underwhelmed, I'm flat out disgusted. At the same time, I'm grateful I'm not vested in their ecosystem.

It certainly makes it easier to abandon something that refuses to carryover my gamerscore/history/game-purcha ses.

The XBONER turns me off completely.


". Finally we are going to see a generation that changes the way we play games - and for the better"

Yep because instead of playing Halo we get to watch Halo.

ROFL Face it all those TV services crap isnt going to change the way we play video games.

Well the conference focused mainly on apps and TV so obviously people are underwhelmed hardly any gameplay they spent nearly 40 minutes talking about EA sports and TV services
OlgerO  +   920d ago
Damn if only 61 percent of gamers prefer PS4 for gaming after all the shit microsoft pulled thats a bad sign.
DivineAssault  +   920d ago
Thats just the UK though..
OlgerO  +   920d ago
I suppose the UK has been a xbox region so it seems to be at least moving in the right direction
etowntwo  +   920d ago
im really .... Really hoping MS at E3 shows us the games.

And not TV, TV, TV..
r21  +   920d ago
I was underwhelmed. Really thought MS would show off some hardcore gaming concepts and gameplay. Oh well, I set up myself up for disappointment. Guess MS has one more chance at E3 or else my full interest in console gaming will all go to the wii u and PS4.
SDF Repellent  +   920d ago
MS better show at least 4 new core IPs and 4 current Ips in development at E3 with actual gameplay and not CGi trailer BS before I will give them any hope at all.

Kinect Sports 3, Kinectimals now with Dogs, and Dance Central Usher edition ain't going to cut it!

They better come to E3 like straight up gangster's, I'm talking about the dangerous looking, hair braid back, dead eye staring, dick swinging, blood spitting, ball holding, run for your life kind. Because if they don't, its the end of X1. LOL. I can't stop laughing.

I was ready to love the new Xbox. I loved the original one. But after the reveal, it looks like a very bad decision from Microsoft. So at least I don't have to worry about spending another $400 on a console I won't be needing.

Wiiu and ps4 for me this gen.
