Ryse looks like a quality game just no appealing to me the gameplay looks kinda blase to me but this is before I actually play it. I'm sure it's a cool game but nothing I haven't seen before with next gen visuals. glad the kinect finally got good coverage. It's gotten too much flak considering its a camera and a motion control peripheral As mostly a PS gamer I think it's of great tech and practical just not a selling point. Over all everything looks cool def wanna get my hands on some of the stuff this con didn't help waver me to get an X1 or steer me away though. All you Xgamers out there have faith in your platform of choice. I been with PS through thick and thin and still had a good time X1's strong points are still yet to come after a lil bit more damage control and the launch.
The competition is stiff MS DONT SLIP UP SONY IS WAITING.

You have to admit, Microsoft has the games to back the system up out of the gate.
Question is, will they pull a 360 and slow support down the road? I really hope not. I always remember what the original Xbox was and hope that they go back to their roots and remember they started purely for gaming, and they were good at it.
Don't get me wrong, I am already aware they are pushing things other than games. I am just hoping to see a major emphasis placed on games as well.

Hope so,

If MS understand that the little support for the 360 was one the main causes for the recovery of the PS3, yes, they will keep going with games.

What I most want to see are the games produced in-house. The trailer from Fable looks great, Halo probably will too, and the Black Tusk game..., really curious about this studio.

same here, they had some amazing games at one stage. Thats why i sold my 360 for a ps3 few years ago because it just was loosing its appeal that it had when i bought it.
Hopefully they have a clear vision with its games, they have some decent studios

Original Xbox.
Really takes me back. Good times.

A+++ for me. Now with 22 games on release day, Lots of choices for gamers comes November. IMO, up there with Dramcast as the best launch lineup in history. I just raised my 5 Day one purchase to 9 now. Fable Legends and The Fifa announcement were great surprises..And I especially like how Kinect Sports Rival turns out. Return of waverace!!! That water physic is killer! The scanning to create your own avatar and the motion capture of Project Spark provide a look of one of the benefit of Kinect included in every Sku. I think it was a good presentation.

Battlefield 4 (DICE, Electronic Arts)
Crimson Dragon (Grounding/Land Ho!, Microsoft Studios)
Dead Rising 3 (Capcom Vancouver, Microsoft)
Forza Motorsport 5 (Turn 10 Studios, Microsoft Studios)
Killer Instinct (Double Helix, Microsoft Studios)
NBA 2K14 (Visual Concepts, 2K Sports)
Ryse: Son of Rome (Crytek, Microsoft Studios)
Watch Dogs (Ubisoft Montreal, Ubisoft)
Zoo Tycoon (Frontier Developments Ltd., Microsoft Studios)

In my opinion the only game that interests me in the least from this showing is Dead Rising 3.
