Xbox One Launch Event “More of a Celebration” than a News Event, Better Keep Expectations in Check

The PS4 launch event last week brought quite a few of interesting news to the table, like the release date of inFAMOUS: Second Son and the tease of an Uncharted game for PS4, so it's not surprising that many have big expectations for tonight's invite-only Xbox One launch event.

If you have to believe host Geoff Keighley, though, you aren't going to get much in term of news (Xbox One)

My only expectation is that it's the 22nd of November at midnight, and the world is a better place.

Haha, good one.

they have nothing to show cause they would have done it Sony style if they had anything.
they showed everything they got for the next year or 2 during E3.
Sony keeps dropping bombs every now and then, PS3 is going very strong getting lot of support and Vita as well

Yes, all the speculations, rumors and second hand reviews will come to an end. Both system will be out in the public and it can't come soon enough.

After watching last week you can bet my expectations are very low, so low I'm skipping this one.

I think MS has enough launch stuff they don't have to pad the event talking about games coming months/years later.

not really fair
last week event did not feel like a look at the future, but a hands on with available features and games (and games coming early next year).

Yeah but I suppose it was a bit silly of us to expect some reveals at these events. I mean..Jump Festa is coming in a month and GDC soon after that. Sonys was very poor for us over expectant gamers, and MS's one will be too.

That is the point gamingisnotacrime. The launch events aren't for us. They are there so people can play everything we already know about

You did`t like to see 2-3 minutes of games stuff followed by 6-7 minutes of commercials?

If we get Halo 5 in-engine footage... I'm gonna bust a tit.

Sort of a shame really.. there is no better way to celebrate a console launch than a few game announcements and giving people a quick look at things to come.
Lord Maim  +   275d ago
Have to have it to show it.

Halo 5?

I'm guessing they'll get higher numbers than PS4 launch, considering they're launching in far more places on day one.

Makes sense & if it doesn't, I'll be surprised.

As for the event, if they're having a Killer Instinct tournament, it'll probably end up being a blast for the people there.

Halo 5 will be there probably, unless they're saving it for later events.

If MS is smart, they'll throw out a Halo demo, maybe Quantum Break and even Epic's new IP.
OrangePowerz  +   275d ago
He should have said the same about the PS4 event instead of hyping it into the sky.
GraveLord  +   275d ago
Gotta make room for that Macklemore performance somehow!
kewlkat007  +   275d ago
I wanna see Halo 5...and Jade Empire
falviousuk  +   275d ago
Some Halo 5 info, What exactly is black tusks game, more footage of quantum break, sunset overdrive. however im not expecting any of those but just more pr about the xbox

That's is why I am not investing in in x1, I get the felling we will get a similar problem to wiiu and not see many games for the next 12 months.
