Microsoft E3 predictions: Xbox One, Halo, Tomb Raider and Crackdown

Microsoft's Xbox One may be lagging behind Sony's PS4 in terms of sales, but it's still doing pretty well on its own. Following the console's disastrous reveal and subsequent departure of Don Mattrick the Xbox division has changed a great deal, putting Phil Spencer in charge and making games the focus.

At last year's E3 gamers saw the benefits of this change in ideology and a company firmly back on the right path. This year it can continue to build on a first party line-up that for IBTimes UK's money was better than Sony's in 2014 and which presently looks better in 2015 as well.

What though, will Microsoft show off?

I'm expecting either a $299 price drop or a slim revision as well.

ThinkThink848d ago

as much as I would love for all consoles to drop to $299 or even $199. They are both selling so well now I don't see that happening. We'll get the holiday discounts and an extra game around the holiday's but I don't expect an official price drop from anyone this year.

lifeisgamesok848d ago

I agree with this just add the Battletoads reveal and another Gears game collection or remaster

Septic848d ago

A Banjo Kazooie X1 trailer would be epic.

XelaKNight848d ago

I would agree with you, but how Nuts and Bolts came out... Though it should be different since When BK NnB came out it was a weird time.

maybelovehate848d ago

Seems like a very good prediction.

Genuine-User848d ago

You could say I'm playing it safe. I'm sure they'll be a surprise reveal or two.

Monkeycan8848d ago

Sounds good too me. what about sunset 2?

Genuine-User848d ago (Edited 848d ago )

If there's a sequel, it won't be announced this early. Maybe early 2016.

AlphaBlackWolf96848d ago

I honesty can't wait for that Forza 6 footage with their new ForzaTech engine. They've shown absolutely nothing whatsoever of the game. Not even a screenshot. Between that and Sony potentially revealing Gran Turismo 7 (fingers crossed) I'm pumped as a racing fan.

spicelicka848d ago

Yea pretty much agree, although it's possible we might not see Gear in-engine, kinda like halo 5 didn't show in-engine last year E3. But I REALLY hope there's a Gears 4 beta this year, then we might get to see the actual game!

Genuine-User848d ago

We might get a trailer with in-engine assets.

TheCommentator848d ago

They did just hire the guy who did the cinematics for the Gears games and every trailer has been in engine for the series. What do you want to bet, because of how good it's going to look, that an in engine trailer would get labelled CGI by certain groups on this site though?

@genuine user
I would add unknown new IP to that list as well.

akaFullMetal848d ago

In a way it is the same line up as last years E3, just with actual gameplay hopefully.

Toiletsteak848d ago (Edited 848d ago )

Can't wait.

Toiletsteak848d ago

I bet when they show Gears off they will say after "we are happy to announce that the Gears collection will be hitting Xbox One later this year"

d_g848d ago

and the New ip (phil spencer says)

it will be great E3 for Microsoft

Geoff900848d ago

World Of Tanks, available on the day.
Gears of War collection
DX12 Xbox One footage
The Division gameplay
New Rare IP
Halo Reach to be apart of the MCC.

spicelicka848d ago

Gears of war CGI trailer definitely showing, Black tusk already announced they'll be at E3. Unless they're showing off a Gears remaster.

Enyxodin848d ago
