So, Microsoft Is “Going to Kill Sony at E3”…

Craig Davidson, the director of global marketing at Microsoft said to IGN Spain that the “Xbox One will surprise the world during E3... We will kill Sony at E3″. With that, the Daily Reaction crew of Seb and Dan discuss what MS could do to dominate E3 2013. (Black Tusk, Driveclub, E3, Gears of War Judgment, Halo 5: Guardians, PS3, PS4, Quantam Break, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Microsoft gonna summon COD dog and record the whole thing with Kinect while you aren't looking. Then use 24 hour checkin to secretly grab the footage and upload it on their servers.

When I saw the title to this article the first thing that came to mind was laughter.

MS has about as much chance at doing what this title reads as I do of hitting the lotto. They need to focus on how to sell this huge change of direction to their consumers before even considering eyeballing any other manufacturer in the industry.

Sony is probably asking themselves, what were MS thinking? But at the same time saying, THANK YOU!

@ rainslacker:

Very insightful.

I can't predict the future, but if I am to take the direction of what the past has shown me and make a trajectory of both the direction and assumed momentum of both conferences, Microsoft would have to have something along the lines of a Killzone 2-level event happening for launch for them to begin to pull that off in terms of games.

Even then, if all DRM rumors are accurate, then it won't matter, because the X1 will be as affective swaying other countries as American Country Music (which means not very effective at all).

If they want to do that than they have to announce that the Xbox One reveal was a joke and they just did that to confuse the competition and now they will announce the new xbox that doesn't need to log-in online every 24 hours, kinect free, don't have to pay for used games and TV and skype is just an aftertought with the main focus on games. Than they would have to show at least 5-10 brand new insane looking AAA games and announce that xbox live is now free. Than they would have a chance at what they stated.

Honestly, hell has a better chance of freezing over.

The only way that they could kill the PS4 is by releasing the console for 299. ( or even 199 ) THis would really make it impossible for PS4 to outsell the system
Leio  +   914d ago
That would be equal to economic suicide. Not to mention the other party can do the exact same thing when they are desperate.

Lower price is not a good first hand strategy for any form business and would never benefit in the long run.

I have bashed the Xbox One for its reveal just as anyone else, but continuing for this long just shows that your a fan boy. Calm down pro Sony nerds we will wait for E3 and see if MS redeem themselves then we can discuss further if MS did the right thing or not.

For the record as of now I am definitely getting the PS4 over the Xbox one even though along the line when price cheaper and when is affordable for me will also be picking Xbox One up to play its exclusives games.

Stop being fan boys you can not be a real gamer without owning all platforms to play all the games available for each platform.

Microsoft would have to have an megaton E3 showing to persuade me to buy a Xbox one over PS4 initially. Which I think will be very hard to do with the damage done already but lets wait and see.

Im a real gamer and i have never touched an xbox. Why would i touch anything that is made by a company that only cares about money. You may call me a Sony fanboy but i call myself a gaming fanboy and xbox is not gaming. Sony actually shows passion in what they do which is games!

M$'s conference was pointless to the net, as its a SONY heavy crowed. Just as this biased article illustrates, I'll explain:

This article dissected the potential game releases of the XBOX ONE. Do the same for SONY after their conference and what do they have:

Knack...You mean to tell me people are excited for this, yet criticize XBOX ONE games...please.

Killzone...a Halo killer that never was...please.

Infamous...oh, this is system seller...please.

And a Car game...with no game play...please.

Everything else is multiplat, so, now what? See, thats the reality.

M$ put more into Halo than SONY has put into its entire exclusive lineup. M$ has a stable of games on the way and everyone knows it.

You guys forgot why M$ was so successful: it was the XBOX Live integration, that Reveal demonstrated XBOX Live to the 10th Power. Not only that, M4 used Forza 5 during the demonstration, letting people know we can do what we want while playing games.

M$ doesn't have much to prove;
SONY does!
T2  +   913d ago
Haha so you troll Sony games by offering what in rebuttal ? Halo and a mention of forza ... So you presume that Sony will anounce exactly 0 new games at e3 but Microsoft will show 15 AAA exclusives running on the xbone? Wow just wow , and your proof ?
" ms has a stable of games coming everyone knows it" ... Lol
TheLEGENDofTydo  +   907d ago
You abbreviate Microsoft like "M$"... enough said.
Microsoft wants "$" and doesn't give a shit about you. Sony is Passion, And are you seriously talking exclusives... Sony has always had more exclusives that Microsoft and better ones. And Xbox doesn't really have Halo anymore because Bungie ran from Microsoft when there contract was up. Microsoft is money, Sony is Passion!

In all seriousness

I really really really doubt Microsoft will eclipse Sony at E3.

Kinect games ain't going to cut it. Non-game related features is not going to cut it.

The only thing really is them announcing lots of 1st party games, including new IPs and I don't see this happening.
ChiaPet  +   914d ago
The hell?

They totally said they are releasing new IP's. So that means that they are just making it up right?

Seriously, give MS a chance to redeem themselves in their first party games
OrangePowerz  +   914d ago
New IP can mean a lot, they didn`t say if the new IPs are kinect games. I remember MS going on about how many exclusives they will have in 2010 or 2011 and it turned out that the majority had been Kinect games. With a console reveal that was focused at the mainstream non gamer I wouldn`t be surprised to see many Kinect games.

MS may very well be working on 15 core exclusive games, but I kind of have my doubts given previous history, but I could be wrong as well.

Maybe if they take a loss and price it at 200, free multiplayer, a bunch of core exclusives, have their own Internet TV that's competitive with cable companies for the price of xbox live gold. Then yes I could see the console dominate but as it stands none of that is likely to happen.
cr33ping_death  +   914d ago

JeffGUNZ  +   913d ago
If MS gets respawns game exclusive, which that rumor has been buzzing around, that would be huge. You know Respawns goal is to top COD4 and dethrone them. This game has been in development for YEARS and with a solid studio. Also, Black Tusks game is expected to be a next gen halo type (in popularity) game. I just know I am excited to see what MS has to show and if they can back up that bold statement.
Rai  +   913d ago
lots of IF....I'm going by what we already know. The last 2-3 years MS E3 conferences have been craptastic..

A game can claim to dethrone another but thats all it is..a claim. Also just because a game has be in development for YEARS, doesnt mean it'll be good. For example..Too Human and Duke Nukem.

Sony on the other hand has many very talented first party studios that we know are just waiting to announce games at E3.

I understand they are if's, but you can't look at the last 2-3 E3's. The Xbox One was in development for YEARS, so you could look at the other side of the coin and think those last 2-3 years their heavy investment were for next gen games. We can only wait, but their is a lot of buzz going around about some blockbuster type of games and a games blow out for E3. I hope Sony and MS both bring some new things to the table. I mean Sony didn't really show me anything ground breaking in games. Sure, KZ will look beautiful but I was never too impressed with infamous even though it was a fun game. I'm looking for several new "awe" inspired games from both of the top dogs.

Going to be an interesting E3 this year that`s for sure. I do think MS can have a good E3 conference if they leave Kinect games, TV and Spoats out of it, but I find it hard to believe that either one of them will kill the other one. I kind of expect them to be on par at E3. The problem Sony will have is that they have a 3 consoles show with Vita, PS3 and PS4, while I don`t expect much about 360 at the MS conference. So Sony needs to balance it out right.
ceballos77mx  +   914d ago
That's true too many consoles, just a quick 20 min on ps3/vita to announce a price drop (although with the plans they have with the vita/ps4 I doubt a vita price drop), killzone mercenaries gameplay, beyond and gt6 gameplay, last of us MP, and the rest for the new baby the ps4.
DarkBlood  +   914d ago
why wouldnt a vita price drop make sense if i may ask?

to me it seems somewhat logical if they want to try get as many more of it out there especially with the dual features no?

Sure MS will kill it with bogus CGI targets and false promises per usual.

All media flash, no substance. I'm playing the console with the best and best looking/running games. I know MS thinks I'm useless as a consumer because I'm a core gamer despite people like me supporting Xbox and 360 in the early days but oh well.

Unless MS has some gaming Aces up it's sleeve (including more power and less Kinect) I'll play the better games on the better system.

Really, that Xbox One shown us it is a vhs looking cable box with a cam hook to it. I want games, I don't need more junk. I don't have a cable box hook to Xbox One, so that idea is useless to me.

Plus it sounds dumb, think of it this way "Cable box hook to another cable box". Does something about that seem kind of dumb? An lets not forget the part where Microsoft is most likely want you to pay to even use this.

Let me just say i am a huge sony fan but purchased both consoles ps3 and 360 this generation and enjoyed both. In the end my ps3 stood king in my living room in the end "only" because of all the single player exclusives, my preference. Now going into e3 everyone who doesn't believe microsoft is gonna have an awesome showing is "delusional" at the least. It is a prelude to a console launch and microsoft throws money around like no other. With that being said, I am 100% certain respawn entertainments new title will be timed or "exclusive" to the xbone. No I don't have any proof to back this up, simply the fact that they where 6 months behind in development and need a title that's gonna blow everyone's socks off and hold all xbox faithfull at bay. Sony in return will no be denied despite the xbones announcements and will respond with megaton after megaton on june 10th..Expect to see The last guardian, final fantasy versus..a possible peek at uncharted and at least 2 unannounced mindfuck reveals for all sony fans and finally expect pricing and release dates for both or at least one console..and don't be shocked if they come in october folks.
RegorL  +   914d ago
It depends on if launching 2013 was Microsofts original plan. If they thought they had another year there might be very few games ready to show.

Re:Respawn you might be right, Microsoft digging in its wallet to get a timed exclusive. But I am uncertain how this will fit with EAs grand plan. Battlefield 4 will be released this year. Maybe Respawn is not working on an FPS at all...
