This article talks about why there's a good chance Microsoft's E3 conference will be massive.
I have a feeling there will be some sort of dynamic interactivity that will be just as exciting as the content(until those games come out of course)
The only thing I'm worried about is what if Phil unloads everything at the show and leaving next E3 somewhat empty? No MS needs to show everything they've got this E3. I'll speculate about E3 2015 when the time comes but right now MS needs to unload everything they can.
I wouldn't hold my breath about MS and their E3. Ever since the Kinect was first revealed sometimes in 2008-2009ish their E3 has been s*it and I'm not even going to start with E3 2013. This E3 will show how much MS truly wants their fans back. Even though I personally think MS will make a big push for gamers this year their track record about keeping up the support is grimm to say the least. The x360 had games for 2 years and after that there was Kinect and nothing more.
Every conference will be interesting, this is the E3 that will reveal most of the nextgen only games yet. I'm expecting the least from MS though, they're not known for mindblowing presentations.
@ZOD "I'm expecting the least from MS though, they're not known for mindblowing presentations." Sounds like you must of started watching MS E3 at around Kinect was around because before then MS had some serious great E3's. If MS E3 2014 resembled 2005, 6, 7, 8, 9's E3 conferences any year before Kinect took over then you'll be in for a treat.
@ Angelicice With all recent news out the way I expect MS E3 to be strong. As far as next year lets worry about that when we get there.
Even if Microsoft had a perfect show and it was all about games with decent surprises you will still not make everyone happy. It is in the best interest for certain individuals like insomnium to keep the negativity alive and well because that is their mandate. To take away any positive attention and to talk very minimal about the actual games. It really is flabbergasting how certain individuals are unable to simply move on. We all know Microsoft has made many mistakes. We also know exclusive content seemed to dwindle on previous XBOX systems late in the cycle (and the X360 had good games much longer than 2 years but again some want to exaggerate to try and get their point across). We also know Microsoft changed direction when Kinect was introduced. But at the end of the day it really does come down to content and what the hardware provides. We have seen the PS3 last generation grow into itself and become a great product with good value. Now this generation we are starting to see Microsoft correct some mistakes with the XBOX One but again you have individuals who will never be happy no matter what they do. It's no longer about getting any point across but more often than not just about getting attention. And after E3 we will not see much difference in the attitudes no matter how great E3 is, you'll see.
@darkstares You can't change your principles over night. Changing your "this is what we stand for" like that is nothing but money talking. MS ignored every gamer from the initial reveal up untill the pre-order numbers came in. I have never ever heard of a company that goes against their own word this much. That goes against their own promises no less. There is no telling what they backtrack next. How can anyone trust them? About their E3s. Please tell me why should people get excited about their E3. What has happened in recent E3s that would lead to this conclusion? And like I said even though they will most likely have games up the *ss this E3 there is no way to know how long that will last. Their track record is grimm on that aspect like I said. My attitude will chage once they have say 5 years of good games under their belt. Great new AAA ips every year by the bucketloads like Sony has. That, however has been too much to ask in recent years. Ever since 2008 iirc.
considering current poor state of their xbox hardware sales, they better have it huge.
I think they will say that the xbox one will be able to make it rain, the power of the cloudssss.
E3 will be the MS takeover
After the debacle last year, I'd say yes, MS is going to bring the heat this year.
Other then the shenanigans Sony pulled( the PS4 was meant to be always online) Microsoft's show was great!
"the PS4 was meant to be always online." Can you prove that, or are you one of those people that insist that Sony made a last minute decision to remove the same kind of DRM that Microsoft had, completely ignoring how months earlier they said multiple times that there wasn't any DRM and ignoring business law? EDIT @ below: So conjecture and opinion is your version of proof? Ok, so no proof then. Thanks for the clarification.
@dragon the ps4 is still meant to always be online, its just not required. they've got a share button right on the controller for Christ sake. the future of gaming will be online so it'd be stupid of sony not to be prepared for it. just look at the games, a lot of them are gonna require you to be online in the next couple years.
@DragonKnight Its not really hard to find.....unless you didnt want to find it that is. http://ps4daily.com/2013/06...
They actually had a better show of games last year than sony , then it was all overshadowed by sonys press conference. This is MS chance to impress at E3.
I keep hearing the words debacle and MS losing last year. There E3 was the best. The only way you could appreciate it was if you put the politics aside and focused on what matters games.
I feel like this is gonna be an E3 to remember. Where Microsoft murders Sony. The signs are everywhere. Kinectless Xbox SKU announced. Xbox Live changed so that HBO and Netflix won't require Gold sub. Sunset Overdrive Gameplay. Halo 5 release date announced. All these huge announcements happened just THIS month a few weeks before E3. This can only mean that they will have a huge E3.
So what do you know about Sony's E3 presentation?
I know they are in financial trouble. And have been strangely quiet about E3 and there's just about 2 weeks left.
So what you know is either irrelevant, or nothing at all. Yeah, that's pretty much what I was expecting. Afterall, when you have nothing relevant to say, just say "Sony is in financial trouble." That'll learn dem Sony Ponies right?
@mystogan so you know exactly nothing. Just stop.
Here's the thing. Sony's EXPECTED to have a good conference...as always. MS' conference is more anticipated because everyones wondering what they have up their sleeves. We already know it will be big for the simple fact that they don't have any other choice.
@LOGICWINS More anticipated... I dunno Sony has 3-4 million more people anticipating there show than MS does.
@ dragonknight Getting a taste of your own medicine now you all of sudden you sensitive. Cry me a river. Note: In case you don't know what I am talking about read Mystogan response to you.
All these huge announcement happened just THIS month a few weeks before E3. Sony one time made a few announcements before E3, making everyone anticipate E3 even more, just to be disappointed because Sony only renounced everything at the conference. I think it was 2 o 3 years ago. Maybe Microsoft is announcing E3 as their strategy to hook up people to E3. Not because they have even more things to announce. However, though, I do feel like Microsoft will have a great E3, and I am just expecting to be blown away by the big three. They all will have great announcements for sure.
So it morphed into a ps4?
so signs of announcements predicts ms is going to murder sony at e3, kinectless xbox = sony did it. xbox live change so that hbo and Netflix wont( and it was always a big deal that it was that way on sony platforms) require gold sub. = sony did it halo 5 expected it. it was announced last e3 https://www.youtube.com/wat... sunset overdrive was also announced . and just like sony did the last few E3's had big announcements before E3 but got bashed for doing it and not saving it for E3, but look who is doing it now and look who is not. how the tables turned . but what makes anyone think sony will just throw in the towel at E3 and let ms try to take it , it will be one of the biggest E3 shows and the gloves are off . while im sure ms will come with games the question is are they coming this year are they really being showed off on X1 hardware. and this is where ms has lost some gamers faith , showing one thing and coming out with something different .
“while im sure ms will come with games the question is are they coming this year are they really being showed off on X1 hardware.” Wth? So all sonys games @e3 last year were shown off on ps4 dev kits? Or are you just pointing fingers only at MS? I think you should hit that link below. http://www.dsogaming.com/ne... And are you telling me all the games sony will show at E3 will be released this year?cos its rumored god of war4 and uncharted4 will be making appearances and they aint coming out this year either.
@christocolus theres a difference between high end pcs and dev kits. and it has been stated some x1 games where on high end pcs. http://hothardware.com/News... https://www.youtube.com/wat... http://www.neowin.net/news/... http://www.dualshockers.com... http://www.cinemablend.com/... read its all there and im sure u remember it too. ryse and F5 show the difference . http://www.gamepur.com/feat... https://www.youtube.com/wat... and to all the disagrees I only speak the truth and I have proof to back up my reply . now show me proof that this didn't happen. and @christoclus the games running on pc where third party games running on both(need for speed and battlefield 4 where the 2 )ps4 and X1, but the ps4 exclusives where on devkits but dead rising 3 , ryse, and F5 all where on pcs with higher specs.
@aceitman You don't have to give me 10 sites to prove your point. I provided you with just one to prove mine.High end pcs are still pcs and both consoles had some of their games running on pcs at e3 last year, stop trying to make it seem like ms was the only one doing it. Read the link I provided,it has quotes from various journalists stating that both consoles clearly had games running on pc hardware, some also saw dead rising3 and others running on xbox dev kits at the show. Don't make excuses for sony alone, if you are going to downplay it in the case of sony/ps4 then do same for ms/xbox one.
a game company quiet BEFORE E3??....what a surprise....S
@Mystogan You, KNWS, George, and LifeIsGamesOk should start a MS/Xbox CULT. I have never once seen any of you criticize/question anything that Xbox as every done. You guys are basically mindless drones. "All these huge announcements happened just THIS month a few weeks before E3. This can only mean that they will have a huge E3" Yea, it can ONLY mean that they will have a huge E3. And Sony staying quite can ONLY mean that they don't have anything to show. That's the ONLY things it could mean... the ONLY.
It's exciting and all but "murder" is overstating it a bit, I believe they will be competitive.
So you think that all the Sony studios are just like "yah we dont make games anymore or anything" Sony has the most games to announce and show still. And Naughty Dog murders all MS studios.
Sony announced Project Morpheus and PSNow before E3. those are massive announcements, bigger than anything Microsoft has announced in the past 6 months, and bigger than anything Microsoft will announce at E3 so I'm not quite sure what more you want? Microsoft seem as though they'll have a good E3 but people are way overhyping it. won't be as good as the Microsft Cult are claiming
Huge likely means unprecedented numbers of dumbass celebrities who are "totally into gaming" and make everyone cringe as they try to appear "hip" to the gaming scene.
does everything that comes out of your mouth always negative?...
He has to make sure he does his daily damage control
@Elit3Nick: It's only negative to certain people. It's all about perspective. Now let's talk history. What have Microsoft's E3 conferences have been most noted for? @True-Samurai: I'm assuming that you're trying, poorly, to reference that I'm attempting to damage control for Sony. So, I assume you have a quote in my comment that references Sony at all yes?
@DragonKnight "What have Microsoft's E3 conferences have been most noted for?" Bombshell reveals and previews, particularly at the end of the show (" one more thing...") See Halo game announcements, Grand Theft Auto IV, Final Fantasy XIII, Titanfall, etc. However they panned out to be in the grand scheme of things, they were pretty big deals when they happened. Milo and Ursher and KKK outfits weren't memorable - they're missteps that people bring up to poke fun.
@Elit3nick Lmao... You should read LGM313s comment above. Its even more embarrasing. Lol. @dragonK Stop embarrasing yourself, you know you were trying to troll. How many celebrities where on stage at MS e3 conference last year? Just stop.ok
@creatchee: Really? Is that why most media outlets describe Microsoft's E3 conferences as underwhelming, or at best mediocre? Hmmm, you would think that "bombshell reveals and previews" would tend to steer opinion into a more positive area rather than the innumerable articles about "who won E3" ending with Microsoft NEVER "winning" E3. "Milo and Ursher and KKK outfits weren't memorable - they're missteps that people bring up to poke fun." Do you see how you just contradicted yourself? Aww, too bad I'm out of bubbles. Ah well, have fun. @chritocolus: Do you even know what trolling is? If you think my comment is trolling, then you obviously don't. What's sad is that some mod is going to come along and agree with you. My comment is a criticism of Microsoft's typical E3 conferences, it isn't trolling. I'm not embarrassed either, especially considering (and I'm aware the question wasn't directed to you, but you decided to interject anyway) that you chose not to acknowledge how Microsoft's E3 conferences have been received for years now. Just because you want to live in denial, doesn't mean anything is going to change. EDIT 2 @ Lawson: Oh man, Ubisoft's conference was way worse than anything MS could hope to accomplish if they go that route. But I have a pre-existing disdain for Aisha Tyler anyway so if she's the host of any conference I immediately find it to be the worst. My comment may have been unduly harsh on MS, but it has precedence to back it.
@DragonKnight "Really? Is that why most media outlets describe Microsoft's E3 conferences as underwhelming, or at best mediocre? Hmmm, you would think that "bombshell reveals and previews" would tend to steer opinion into a more positive area rather than the innumerable articles about "who won E3" ending with Microsoft NEVER "winning" E3." I answered your question. Who wins or loses is inconsequential - Microsoft is known for the big reveal. It's their thing.
Apparently DragonKnight likes to pretend MS 2013 E3 never happened.
Yes Georgeenoob, MS's E3 happened they announced games and 3 of them are releasing next year! But sure it happened but what exactly did their conference do but sway Xbox faithfuls to buy a PS4... All those games they announced and 2.5 million more people chose to buy a PS4... I guess youre trying to forget the XBO reveal that happened 3 weeks prior... Or maybe you and the usual XBO drones are pretending Sony's Showing at E3 2013 never happened... :) Yep MS's conferences are big on the extravagance, Kinect Circus event, Usher, Titan Fall, FF13 multiplatform all that fanfare for a dud... GTA4... But we all knew that was coming that year, Milo... Yeah their conference might have big production value but lack everything else that's why the XB360's library dried up to desert level for the past 5 years... Meanwhile Sony may have been light on the extravagance but delivered on the games. Let's just say for now. ALL eyes are on MS because they don't have a choice to perform and bring the goods, they were steamrolled all of last year since January till now and everything since then has been a backpedaling and desperate attempt to repair the negative image they themselves caused. So for your sake and the usual Posey of XBO diehard trolls you'd better hope they have games and software to announces that will capture the mindshare of everyone, because Sony is quiet, and the quiet ones are the ones that end up causing the most uproar... *Check E3 2012 with "The Last of Us" Demo.* :)
Reminds me of the Ubisoft conferences. MS has already said E3 Will be about the games and last year when they said that there was no BS.
@sevir -have a bubble !
How many celebrities were at MS's E3 2013 conference?
@DragonKnight Considering the news that has come before E3, you might want to re-think that.
This nonsense again. They had two options if they wanted it released on the day of E3. They had to either announce the $399 model at E3, only to have the announcement blown when it inevitably showed up in weekly ads leaked two weeks prior, defeating the entire purpose of saving it as an E3 surprise, or announce it early and release it on the day of E3. Do people really think MS announced it because they didn't want to take the whole thirty seconds to pop a PowerPoint slide up on the jumbotron to say an Xbox One without Kinect will be released, and won't take the time to remind everyone that they can go to the store right after the show and buy one? C'mon...
Microsoft has two major things on their side that they didn't before... 1. Good leadership - Phil Spencer is a gamer and has his finger on the pulse of Xbox people. He also has their attention (as well as that of other potential buyers). The changes made under his command have removed pretty much everything (obvious exception of raw power) that could be seen as inferior to the PS4 and the PlayStation ecosystem. 2. Being a cornered animal - let's face it: PS4 is rolling over Xbox One in terms of worldwide sales. However, desperate times can breed ingenuity and a renewed vigor to fight. The changes I mentioned before were a good start. The games are the next step, and so far, they look great. It might have been a good thing that they got their butts kicked initially, because they are coming back with a full clip of ammo and a world to prove itself to. This means good things are coming for Xbox gamers and anybody interested in the brand. Obviously Sony isn't going to sit on their laurels, but they may not be able to initially counter what Microsoft has in store. Which means that they will load up later and bring more to the table. And then Microsoft will do so again. And then Sony again. Wash, rinse, repeat. All of it means better games and experiences for us
I think sony will announce uncharted and more indys. They might also announce more layoffs and key people leaving their first party studios. Maybe they will show some graphs showing how sony is slowly and painfully dying but not to worry because ps will be around.for a while so we can all enjoy some great indys. Can't wait
Lol. Have you looked at the Xbox 360's lineup for the past , I don't know 6 years? Kinect shovelware and a barren wasteland of Hardcore games, the usual, forza, Fable Gears halo... They announced games for Xbox One but 3 of their biggest launch next year.
I hope its big for the all 3 companies, however they should have a don mattrick pinyata at the end of their presentations give people free xbox ones to beat it to dust
I think MS have a really good chance at having the best E3 this year. Let's face it, they are backed in a corner and have no where else to go. MS will likely go all out on titles coming out this year, next year and maybe even the year after to try get some hype around the console. Where as Sony have the luxury to not be as pressing. But who knows really, maybe MS just got out the checkbook on timed exclusives again and their biggest announcement might only be the Halo games.
I just hope E3 isn't a CGI conference of upcoming games like usual.
All their games will run on PC instead of XB1.
-Halo 5 Gameplay -Halo Collection -Quantum Break Gameplay -Announce Forza Horizon 2 -Announce Perfect Dark 2 -Xbox One is bc with Xbox 360 games
Halo 5 gameplay--bring it. THAT'S worthy of E3. Halo collection? perfect dark? Forza? Quantum break based on what we know and saw? These things are not things to be excited about. You know it, I know it, the world knows it. Xbox One becoming backwards compatible is a notable announcement but will in no way bring down the house. By all means--if this gets you excited, I'm happy for you, but if you think it will make a good E3, you are sorrily mistaken.
These comments though. Good f**k some people are such immature fan kids. Just buy both consoles ffs and stop exclaiming that this company will murder th other..
Since last month Microsoft has been preparing everyone for e3. It will indeed be massive!!!
blah blah blah, this is not news. MS tries every year to have a great E3, and they will once again show us inferior 3rd party games and some stupid bullshit on Kinnect.
Stop with the MS E3 PR crap. Taking all the fun out of it.
Sony never Had DRM lol, i love that people post links to a page that said that Shuhei Yoshida supposedly said it. yet not show what exactly he said, he never said they had DRM, what he was saying after microsoft went DRM, and got backlash for it many ppl went to twitter asking sony not to do it, the famous #noDRM, thats what he was talking about, they never had a clear policy on DRM yet, but that because of the backlash they know not going that way, big difference from oh they had it to they removed it after microsoft backlash, lol Nope, and before anybody tries were talking disc not Digital. Digital always had some DRM and sony did say that publishers can put a type of DRM in for there game, but there not forcing them to like Microsoft where, and of course publishers could really make a type of DRM to there game anyways if they wanted to, http://www.redgamingtech.co...
the key thing is that sony listened immediately and why are we talking about DRM anyway ?
Mc Donald's "could be" healthy, it's not tho is it.
Both of them could be huge in my opinion. Hope they deliver,
