Xbox boss says gamers have a lot to look forward to from this year's industry event; Japanese market is "critical" to the industry overall, he says.
The more games the better. We'll see if that holds true
How many franchises those Microsoft have besides : Halo, GOW, forza, fable and Flight simulator? This E3 will be epic for sure...( not sure Microsoft will be the ones blowing everyone away) *edited* Everyone deserves a second chance (even Microsoft) but that billion you speak of might just be for COD map packs and TitanFall exclusivity...What we've learnt over the years is that Microsoft wont take any risk unless they are 110% certain they'll make their money back 10X...We will have to wait and see...I'm a gamer for the games and hopefully they can deliver...but till then my skepticism will remain on high alert....
They have a lot from the 360 age all the way back to original Xbox. One of my favorite is grabbed by the ghoulies which I still own.😎
It doesn't have to all be existing franchises. In fact I'm sure most will be new. Remember they spent a BILLION dollars, with a B, on games for the X1.
if this is true, i might have to get an xbox while sony has its thumb up its ass. Kz shadowfall, cod ghosts, and bf4 will not contain me forever.
Hopefully they bring back Banjo Kazooie, Jet Force Gemini, Viva Piñata, BattleToads, Brute Force, phantom dust and Crimson Skies. In addition to the new IPs they are bringing to Xbox.
He didn't say first party studios. He said hes expecting an army of franchises at E3 If you just clicked the link and read you'd find out what this was about. Between Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo, Electronic Arts, and Activision, there will be an "army of huge franchises" to look forward to from this year's Electronic Entertainment Expo. That's according to Xbox boss Phil Spencer, who made the comment to GameSpot in an interview from the Game Developers
@incredible, with Sony's track record how can you even think they won't have great things to show. While we don't know a lot we know retailers do from destination PlayStation and were very impressed . Anywayhe was talking as a whole not specifically Microsoft.
@Skippy If you read the article hes talking about How MS, Sony and Nintendo delivering an "army" of AAA's exclusives. Basically he says we will get spoiled with great games this E3 and other Philosophy's of AAA development.
Of course there will be an army of huge franchises at E3. This is the first E3 after launch. But how many of those franchises will be on Xbox One?
They have to move stuff out to fil the 90 minute E3 press conference, so expect many games to shown on XB1 this year.
@skppypaccino The MS hate train has already left, no one told you???
This is the hate train....people here stuck together, formed sad lil clans and bubbled us all down, me, too busy having a life for that, but will still say it as I see it. E3, like every year, will be awesome. There will be great games for those of us who actually have the console we whine about... Ignore the Marias,heavy dedicate of this world and just enjoy..... If it does not bother you putting the money down for the X1, PS4.... Just enjoy it.....
Yeah good to see that MS will focus on AAA titles.
The guy was talking about Sony Nintendo and xbox
For me personally, the ultimate magaton would be a conker the squirrel re-boot by Rare, we got KI, and it's IMMENSE, Conker would really be the icing on the cake for me.
"I am the great mighty poo, and im going to throw my shit at you!" best song in a game ever. possibly best boss fight ever. n64 had some great games, but thats one of the top 5 IMO.
Xbox only owners yearly war cry: "WAIT FOR E3!!!"
let's take a look at how that has worked out so far. Quantum Break, Sunset Overstrike, Dead Rising 3, TitanFall, Below, Project Spark, Halo Next...with games like that revealed at E3, why in the world would we have a different warcry?
so now you're complaining that xbox guys are excited about upcoming games? lol man you fanboys will really b**** about anything.
Lmao, how many of those games are even out? When was the last time we saw something from most of those? When are they coming out? That's the point: Xbox fanboys say to wait for E3, and then the wait goes in for years for the games. Hell, half that stuff may not be out even come next year.
@daniel2115, "who's complaining????? I'm lol about it....hahahahaha" @Bundi, you just gave me an example, your hole comment scream..... "WAR-CRY!!!!!!!!"
He said franchises.....in general. Not MS franchises...
I hope tons of new franchises are announced to go along side established sequels
Personally I'm hoping to have more info on KI season 2! :)
Really looking forward to e3 this year. Since G4 is pretty much done, does anyone know of a decent site that I can watch it live?
Twitch.TV will be the official partner of E3 this year.
What about spike? Also got damn ms you sure know how to make someone feel glad about getting an x1
You didn't read the article did you truesamurai? He was referring to all the consoles at the show ps4, wiiu and xbone.
Yes, the focus is on games is what it is all about!! Can't wait for E3.
misleading title, Phil Spenser actually said an army of huge franchises from EA, Activision, Sony, Nintendo and MS. But the title made it like an army of huge franchises all come from MS, really stupid.
Why would you need a link in the comments? Just click on the article. How lazy are people getting these days?!
Keep bringing those games MS will be watching and waiting.
Do you see how Spencer spoke with class, that was an opportunity to make a dig at Sony, but he talked them up. Sony execs might have taken a shot at MSFT had the roles been reversed. Spencer has respect for the industry. All in all E3 is gonna be epic. My prediction for XB1 is Halo 2, Halo 5 (DX12), Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break(DX12), Banjo Kazooie game, Forza Horizons, The Division (XB1 gets exclusive contrnt), Fable, LXP tech demo, snippet of Gears, and indies. This would be one he'll of a 90 minute presentation. @Eonjay at what using jokes to overshadow an otherwise lackluster presentation. What if Phil Spencer made a joke about sony restructuring, or about an internal MSFT studio of ex Sony devs, or a financial joke, or delayed games getting delayed. I'm guessing ps4 fans wouldn't like that too much. PS I wouldn't say love, but MSFT helped me through school and it's how I make money at work, so yes I like the company. And I really enjoy my XB1.
I agree, Sony had a poor showing last year, but "won" because while MS focused MORE on the games, the policies they talked about, were quite unpopular. MS will kill it this year! And if anything is said bad about Sony, half of the fanboys heads instantly explode, and the other half come up with excuses why some of the creators or the biggest franchises in Sony history are leaving. And old standbys are sales numbers, and how much more fun games are to play in 1080p...all of a sudden. Since no game was last gen and it was the best 9 years of gaming...ever. People bubble vote Truefan, we need to hear more of what he has to say and less what the PS fanboys have to say with all those undeserved bubbles.
Sony didn't havea poor showing last year they spread it outbetween multiple events.
How did MS focus MORE on games than Sony? Sony has more upcoming games for PS4, they have better policies for gamers and developers. MS basically blew their load with games they have coming up to the end of 2015 last E3, whilst Sony has shown basically nothing of their arsenal comparatively, for reasons none of us know about for sure. E3 will be great for both parties, showing more of their games, but let's not pretend that MS is going to blow Sony out of the water with new announcements, like you and your friend above believes they will. ------- And you're acting like truefan1 is a beacon of light for this community and not a Microsoft fanboy? If I wasn't right in the head, I'd be rolling on the floor laughing right now for hours.
Im with you @truefan MS will dominate E3. Cheers
LOL. no they won't. Here's what happened when they went all out at last year's E3, supposedly "killing" Sony: http://www.dualshockers.com... I guess some people need to tell themselves things at night to be able to sleep better, though. Good luck finding that inner peace.
You talk some crap kid.
No one will ever be able to top Jack Trenton at E3 2013; he officially kicked off the console wars.
"these are our people now, microsoft... you dropped the balls. you dropped all of the balls, and we kicked those balls into the net!" Jack Trenton, E3 (videogamertv abridged edition)
This E3 is going to be a blast!
Loving the commitment MS has this gen to deliver great games.
Dat billion dollars ;)
very good. e3 will make me see to buy an x1 this year. that halo tho
Nice misleading title buddy. This is what he really said. ""I think at this year's E3 between us and EA and Activision, Sony, and Nintendo, you're going to see another army of huge franchises coming" -- Spencer"
unfortunetly people will refer back to this article and call MS liars because their expectations were not met
Unfortunately you'll also have xbox fans doing exactly what they're sling bite and treating it like MS was, indeed, referring to just themselves.
Can't wait to see what MS will have, hope it's not a bunch of FPS games.
Oh god, they're gonna open their conference with another Call of Duty demo, aren't they?
Im ok with that as long better games follow. We'll just look at it as starting the show off, from least to greatest!
C'mon Brute Force! Lol
Excited for that Halo....and gears 4 footage. Let's not get ahead of ourselves..
microsft announces nothing since E3 and then wants to brag about all the multiplatform games they're going to get. lmao, i can't even.
I rather wait for game announcements at E3, etc, than having insiders leak games info at every turn.
Kinect shovelware incoming alert.
Lol I guess Xbox fanboys don't read the articles do y'all ? He said between Sony MS and Nintendo.
Does it matter tho? At the end of the day your still only worried about to the games that are coming to your respective consoles! Same as if I say cant wait to see what PS4 games we see at E3! But we dont get the opportunity because the Title to the article only hints at MS. Until you read article and see he means everyone!
Bring on the JRPGs
If it were a battle between who would bring the most exclusives to the table at E3 this year then it might be close but I still think playstation would win
Common sense says PlayStation would win. Microsoft blew their load at E3 last year. We know what they have coming for the most part, up to the end of 2015. We've seen the leaks up to 2016. They have less studios making games than Sony does, less independent developers, less second and less third party developers. There's no way they have the capability to have a stronger E3 than them, unless they either go for the chequebook and buy out licenses, or if they put on the smoke 'n' mirrors show. Sony has been remarkably quiet about their AAA lineup and announcements over the past few months. They are likely more than anyone to have the strongest lineup.
That is my thinking exactly Sony has a lot of studios waiting to show what they have in store
Trying to temper my expectations for E3 this year. That being said...BEST E3 EVER!!! I think that Microsoft knows that they have to 'bring it'...and absolutely slay E3 this year. They know that and it sounds like that's what they are trying to do. On the other side, you have Sony. I expect to see some Uncharted, Project Morpheus, The Order, SSM's sci-fi game....it sounds like Sony will respond in kind. I think both know there is a lot riding on this E3 for the future of each console. I'm gonna prep a big bowl of popcorn and kick back and watch the show. E3 2014 is June 10-12...anyone know/hear schedule for Microsoft or Sony?
I hope they'll bring back some exclusives from the original Xbox days. If they announce another KOTOR or Jade Empire as exclusive, I'll go and buy an Xbox One immediately!
I'm not sure I've been this excited for an E3 in years. If they rumors (and sound reasoning) are true, the show will be stacked!
How people can criticize MS for either COD deal but applaud Sony for their Destiny deal is beyond me. -And read the article. He was talking about between MS, Sony, EA, Acti, etc. there will be a lot of AAA games.
Timed exclusivity is the real problem in this industry. - Destiny is a pure and promising IP, and the exclusive content it's getting is long-term, like with most exclusive third-party content on PlayStation. - CoD is rehashed garbage that a lot of kids still seem to enjoy. MS gets timed exclusivity on its DLC for 30 days. Long-term VS. short-term. I know which I think is far better. --------- Edit: Sony have entered a long-term partnership with Bungie to create exclusive content for DESTINY. http://www.gamespot.com/for... In the past few years, most exclusive content that says "Exclusive to PlayStation" has been just that, and not timed to come out on other platforms a month later. Assassin's Creed: Black Flag, Watch_Dogs, etc, etc. Don't really care about those who get mad at MS paying for Titanfall. It's MS's money to spend, but it's still lazy that the majority of the early Xbone exclusive library is third-party licensed, and they're still acting like it's them curating the content. Microsoft pays for other companies to fix their problems for the short-term, ignoring the fact that it's the long-term that matters. Re: Call of Duty. I'd rather not get into that, but it's is the same formula every year and has already become stale. People still like it cause they're comfortable with it - I'll use the famous comparison to Justin Bieber though. Millions of people buy and support his crappy music, doesn't mean it's good, creative, original or deserving of large-scale support. DESTINY isn't even out yet for you to make that assumption, but if you research into it, is an online persistent world that is ever changing and completely different formula to CoD. You cannot annualise something like DESTINY, but you can continue expanding its world with DLC, and that is what we're going to see from it more than "constant games for 10 years".
