How Microsoft Can Win Us Back at E3

The same trends we saw last generation look to be continuing—the focus on “entertainment”, a Halo TV series, and the first look at Call of Duty: Ghosts, along with the announcement that while the game will be available on other systems, DLC will be coming to Xbox first. However, this news wasn’t surprising, nor was it particularly interesting for gamers who were waiting to see what Microsoft had up its sleeve. (Microsoft, Xbox One)

How Microsoft Can Win Us Back at E3

Bring games?

Gears, Halo and COD carried them this gen. I'm guessing it wont take much to hook XBox360 fans considering that.

Just my 2 cents

yea.. GOW:Judgment just came out, and nobody really cared. Halo is a 65 year old bloody and bruised horse, and COD has fish that move! I really don't see them bringing anything of significance to the table at e3... which is unfortunate because i prefer my 360 to my ps3 this gen, for gaming. I WANT to be in your corner NextBox, but you're making it too damn hard.

they need to reveal that everything they said so far was a joke and then open up the xbox one and a ps4 pops out and they say this is our actual system.

To win me over, they're going to have to impress, and I mean REALLY impress me. Enough to where I find them more impressive than Sony.

And that, I find very doubtful.

One can only wait and see. Sony convinced me to buy a PS4 already. I don't have a PS3. I do have a Vita though, lol.

3 simple things, 1. Be a gaming console w/o xbox watch tv crap. 2. no 24 hr online checker crap. 3. opt to on and turn off cam when I want too, no I don't want re-plug in an outlet every time I wish to use my x1 console.

Most gamers (like me) don't like the always online functionality and the no used games policy from the X1, so Microsoft has to have a better E3 then Sony if they want to recover from all the negative press... in all honesty, i don't think they will have a better E3 then Sony (might be wrong and surprised).

Sony just has to make the PS4 play used games (for all games, no exceptions) without extra fees, and they automatically have my buy.

They better not show us more TV sports and Call of duty crap, and show us what the 1 billion they spent on games is going to bring us.

They need to pull off a miracle.

simple. clear up the confusion with always online and used game fee situation. If those are both wrong, then thats a plus. Show at least 3 or 4 exclusive games that are not kinect games. Show why gamers should want to use kinect 2.0.

If only it WERE just confusion. But I don't think it is. There's a lack of CLARIFICATION, but it's hard to be confused about what they've said so far.
GamingAngelGabriel  +   566d ago
Pretty much exactly what I say in my piece, haha.

I personally dont think they can. ship has sinked, capt. can't seem to go over board. still trying to salvage a ship that flooded with DRM,always on,kinect 2.0, no games presented at their conference. the no used game policy,24 hour check in, its a dead duck. QUACK!!!

To win back 360 gamers ditch the drm(allow used game sales) and the required online 24 hourly check in. Kinect can be turned off.

Show a passion for games like the first 3-4 of the 360, beyond the usual suspects and copy sony's ps plus service to make a gold subscription worth a yearly subscription.(subjective) But damn step it up a notch.

I seriously doubt they will do any of that though, i know sony fanboys gives ms fans shit for being the dudebro console, but that conference was really bad. Unless ms thinks that is all xbox gamers like is sports tv and cod.

Ms better come out blazing with games(not kinect ones either) at e3, because they could win some of it's install base back with some right moves.

I don't think they care about anywhere outside of na, with the emphasis they have shown so far.
