Take an in depth look at how Microsoft can position themselves to make sure they maximize their efforts with this years E3. As the event is right around the corner, these games will set Microsoft and the Xbox apart.
Sony and Nintendo doesn't show up. XD I kid, I kid. They just gotta show up and do what they always do.
if it's 3rd party games they will almost certainly be timed exclusive some said DR3 will be X1 only but look what happened, the same will most likely happen to Sunset Overdrive and Quantum Break. on the other hand games like inFAMOUS and the Order will always be exclusive on the PS4.
Thing is MS owns Quantum Break ip (like Sony owns The Order). MAYBE it will come for PC (I took 2 years for Alan Wake to come on PC). But not PS4 or Ouya. Sunset Overdrive is owned by Insominac so it's debatable.
Shite you beat me to it lol
Sony and nintendo aren't a threat, OUYA is the real threat...
Why does a company have to 'win'?
I'm asking myself the same question... I mean, do they win a trophy? How do they "win" exactly? I'm tired of people saying, Sony won e3, or nintendo, or Microsoft, or f**king steam! No one won nothing. Although I see E3 as the place where video games win in general.
Well by having an amazing conference will convince more people to buy the system. Thats the main point of having a good showing at E3. And no Microsoft nor Sony will be unlocking achievements/trophies with their conference they will just be able go convince people to buy their systems.
They win intangibles buzz, hype, good press and influence people's purchasing decisions. But I think it is possible for both companies to win.
Because not all of them will have the same E3 conference. Some will be better than others and the one that is best wins E3. But thats very subjective in my opinion. Some people believed that last E3 Microsofts conference was the worst while others believe it was the best.
Digital game sharing.
To come up with new and refreshing ideas and games. That's pretty much all I can think of.
For those that questioned if MSFT had the momentum, this is proof. How many of these MSFT E3 prediction and how MSFT can win E3 articles have we seen in the last week. There are 2 on the front page alone.
Being reasonable here hasnt sony had the same amount though? Doesnt help that they havent uttered a word
Sony dont need to shout about it, it's not the way they operate, games past & present have done all the shouting for them, pretty sure E3 will be massive for them. Saying that, E3 will be massive for MS as well, end result, we all win(well apart from the little fanboys on here)
Having articles about E3 does not have anything to do with momentum, if you want to talk about there momentum, look at there lackluster sales that are declining, and polls that show little to no interest in XB1... Truth is MS needs a good E3 to help bring up sales, or there in series trouble with the XB1.
The concept of "winning" a trade show is a bit off putting to me. That said, every thing the author pointed to is basic stuff we all know about and I would disagree..if all they do is show that they will not have a good E3. Halo 5, Gears, Forza Horizon 2, Project Spark and Fable Legends. Way to go out on a limb!
They need to bring the games and bring it good! Show consumers that Xbox One will have awesome games you wont find with the competition. I don't care if they are third party or first as long they lock them up as exclusives. Which I just read an article that Phil wants to try to lock up the rights for all third party exclusives ALA Gears of War. So Microsoft is heading in the right direction and that is more games! PLUS What will help them is if they dig deep into their selection of IPs as it is. There are some classic IPs from original Xbox that they haven't used in forever!
How could they win? By announcing that they were "just kidding" with the XB1 and introduce the all new XBox Two! Other than that, (which isn't gonna happen), nothing. They are going to lose big time this E3. Someone pass me the popcorn, it's gonna be fun to watch this!
Click bait. Move along.
They can't... *runs*
