The more games the better. We'll see if that holds true

SkippyPaccino1277d ago (Edited 1277d ago )

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)


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.😎

ThePope1277d ago

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.

incredibleMULK1277d ago

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.

mhunterjr1277d ago

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

SoapShoes1277d ago (Edited 1277d ago )

@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.

AngelicIceDiamond1277d ago

@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.

dedicatedtogamers1277d ago

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?

No_Limit1277d ago (Edited 1277d ago )

They have to move stuff out to fil the 90 minute E3 press conference, so expect many games to shown on XB1 this year.


The MS hate train has already left, no one told you???

Pogmathoin1276d ago

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.

Flutterby1276d ago

The guy was talking about Sony Nintendo and xbox

DeathOfTheFanBoy1277d ago

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.

ShowGun9011276d ago

"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.

LackTrue4K1277d ago

Xbox only owners yearly war cry:

"WAIT FOR E3!!!"

Bundi1276d ago

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?

marlinfan101276d ago

so now you're complaining that xbox guys are excited about upcoming games? lol man you fanboys will really b**** about anything.

Hicken1276d ago

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.

LackTrue4K1276d ago

"who's complaining????? I'm lol about it....hahahahaha"

you just gave me an example, your hole comment scream.....

Fireseed1277d ago

Personally I'm hoping to have more info on KI season 2! :)

LambOfLucifer791277d ago

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?

NYC_Gamer1277d ago

Twitch.TV will be the official partner of E3 this year.

True_Samurai1277d ago (Edited 1277d ago )

Flutterby1276d ago

You didn't read the article did you truesamurai? He was referring to all the consoles at the show ps4, wiiu and xbone.

No_Limit1277d ago

Yes, the focus is on games is what it is all about!! Can't wait for E3.
