I just got back from Microsoft’s E3 2013 press conference, and my feelings are mixed. The conference was 100% game focused and that’s a great thing, but there were a few missteps along the way.

Yeah, I'd probably do a 6

Or maybe even a 4 or 5

I thought it was a great press conference for MS. Especially compared to the past few years. Regardless of the XBOX One's system flaws, they brought a lot of game to the show.

The low point was the price announcement (you could hear the crowd grumble), but the games/demos were great.

The PS fanboys are in full force today

darthv721928d ago

with what they showed. Exclusive or not...lots of games that appeal to different people.

you cant say they didnt stick to their word. this E3 was all about the games. No media streaming, no drm or used game talk...just showing games like they said.

Now that their show is over, they can talk about the other stuff.

C0MPUT3R1928d ago (Edited 1928d ago )

The highlights of the show were games that can be had on other platforms. MGS V, Battlefield 4, The Witcher 3, Titanfall, etc.
Then they top if off with $499 USD.
5/10 because MS showed games for once.
*edit just to clarify Titanfall is indeed multiplat it will be on PC day 1, and PS4 1 year later.

Bzone241928d ago

When was Titanfall announced to be on ps4 1 year later?

I was disappointed that Microsoft didn't show any JRPGs. Then again, Xbox isn't known to popularize that genre to their console anyway.

hellvaguy1927d ago (Edited 1927d ago )

JRPG's will all those trippy colors like your on acid and those whinny school girl cries? Ya that's why they don't sell in the U.S.

I would like to see mmorpg's. Rumors are the that Skyrim will be online for consoles.

5 paragraphs rushed out just for n4g... i read that in less than a minute.

their presentation was superb, great variety, loads of games, and some great looking games at that.

i wont score a but for me it was just superb

I agree. Over the past few weeks this site has been pulling Microsoft apart over the Xbox onw and saying we will only see halo gear forza and fable and then lots of family games and all about the consoles. Well how wrong they were. I am now really looking forward to getting a one. The little bits they showed with smart glass and voice looked good and the new added bits to live like one subscription per console and free games a month now shows value in the console.

Ruse, forza, bf4, deadrising 3 all looked amazing and this was all about the core gamers. A good mix of games and a good way to create a buzz about the new console. Also games like ki show that Ms have been taking notice of what the fans want and I expect us to start seeing some more classic rare games this gen to.

For me the 360 did what Ms wanted it to do and that was to get the door wide open and had to hit the core and then the none core market to do that and now the door is open I see Microsoft giving us lots of different types of games and not just shooters and I think this e3 has shown that.

Its also good to see the 360 will still get support to.

The only bit for me that let it Down was the uk price. £429 is just showing how we get ripped off here in the uk.

For me the one has me hocked and me wanting one. I can't wait to see what Sony are going to show us as well as what big guns Nintendo has as my Wiiu is in need of some big N games.

seemed a little rushed...
alot of games tho....but yeah scores about right. one of ms lesser e3 performances.

Microsoft: "Here's our new exclusive!"

*1 minute CG trailer*

Microsoft: "It looks fantastic and we love what the company is doing for the next generation of gaming on Xbox One. Here's another exclusive."

*30 seconds of gameplay*

It did seem rushed lol.

pompombrum1928d ago

Lesser? That was their best one since they shown project natal. It exceeded my expectations by a long way.. however my expectations were more like 50% core games, 25% kinect trash and 25% other irrelevant BS I couldn't care about.

I think people are being a little harsh on Microsoft seeing how everyone has been criticizing them for not showing enough games. Still, it doesn't make me want to buy an Xbox One so I guess it failed for the most part.

you simply don't f**k it up by handing Killer Instinct to one of the worst developers in the industry. Rare should be in charge of the development. You won't see any surprises coming from Double Helix. Low production values as usual.
