What does Microsoft need to do to "win" E3?
On a score of 1-5 I rate them at; Talk = 6/5 Walk = 3/5 That's how they've been for the past three years at least.
Made me lol.
People have to look at the context. These last few E3's have been the winding down of this generation for all parties. Think back to E3 circa 2007/08, MS brought it all to the table then and I expect them to do the same again this year. The benefit for us gamers is that all of the Big 3 will be bringing games games games this year and if you want to find a negative in that, I suggest you find a new hobby :)
But outside of last year, Sony has been bringing big games every year. 2012 was down year for sony with games (compared to usual) but they just came right back in 2013 with more games. So MS better come with it at E3 and clear up all the negative rumors and have plenty of non-kinect games with actual gameplay to show off.
Sony has managed to to handle the transition of two console generations supplying both platforms with games to no complainable notice, except usually the newer system. Looks ready to do so a third while also juggling the PSV which only had the PSPs physical media causing a problem. Meanwhile MS twice now has seemingly needed to take attention away from their older platform to prepare for the new one, yet still have the same start-up issues Sony's had. Dropped support for the first XBox sooner than they promised. Have made their last E3's mainly about Kinect, which has just been a mess in terms of performance. Come E3 both are going to make a lot promises and one of them is going to do less than deliver on them. You can likely guess where my money's going.
Microsoft talks then trips. Hopefully they will prove everyone wrong at E3 but I don't have high hopes.
The people at MS are the masters of bs. They can do the talk better than anyone. As for the walk? Less impressive.
They need to have the best E3 they have ever had. I dont think they can walk that walk.
Its hard to improve/make a come back when...they clearly mad a console that focuses more on tv programming,social media etc.Thats eating into the ram of the console so less ram for games.
Haven't seen ms walking in a long time, all they do nowadays is limping.
Microsoft should have started development sooner because they are obviously unprepared for a new console launch. But they did claim that there will be 15 AAA exclusives for the XB1 so I will give them a chance to prove themselves at E3 since they slain that they will be able to kill the PS4. Motorola RAZR i
We'll see, but after the reveal it seems they can't walk the walk, but that could all change if they give games a big focus at E3.
Look at all the haters....lol Xbox 360 outsold xbox. Sony can't say the same about ps3 and ps2.
PS2 outsold the xbox and xbox 360 combined. Owned.
"PS2 outsold the xbox and xbox 360 combined." And went broke in the process..lol My, have times changed and the mighty have fallen. Ds and 3ds killed all sony products...lol Owned....lol
walking the walk is an easy thing for microsoft (even with the so called bad press). the xbox name isnt going anywhere anytime soon. it has proven itself time after time. only a fanbot would deny that. not only have they beasted on the proving ground where it was deemed to not have a chance against competitors like nintendo and sony, but it it bested one and did very well agaianst the other while also learning a few valuable lessons. microsoft has always been the company that under promise and over deliver. sony has always been the company to over promise and under deliver. they do it every year and with every game console release. they claim that they will have this and that and their system will be able to do this and that over another console, and the company drops the ball everytime. so this question shouldnt be directed towards the baby of the console war who also beat the long lived king of gaming. it should be directed at sony. can they walk the walk. lets not forget that they have been selling a lot of their studios like crazy here lately. so all of those exclusives wont be as plentiful as they use to be. while microsoft has been buying up a bunch of studios for the xbox one and increasing its server count for the big bang :-) game on :-)
it is too late, developing games takes 3 to 4 years, even if after the reveal they think OK people want the xbone to be more gaming focused, we just make more games for it!! That means this machine won't see much games for the next 3 to 4 years, but they might use the money to buy some time exclusives, but these are not true exclusives, you can expect to play them on PS4 later.
Only time will tell? not sure
