E3 is coming fast, and today Microsoft’s Xbox division head Phil Spencer did a bit of teasing about what you’re going to see from the house of Xbox One at the biggest show of the year.
Updated with more info about Gamescom, Halo 5 and more.
"This is usually the point in a gen where you see some exciting new things." Awesome. 17 days more. more interesting tweets below "Fer Nuñez @FN_182 @XboxP3 how's halo 5 campaign doing? Phil Spencer@XboxP3 @FN_182 Was over at 343 visiting @JoshingtonState playing, team is doing a great job polishing the game. Nice additions to the campaign. "Roland Deschain @Nexus_Revo @XboxP3 Hey Phil, any chance that we will be able to broadcast party chat while streaming on Twitch? Thanks and best of luck at E3 Phil Spencer@XboxP3 @Nexus_Revo It's a feature people have asked about, we are looking at what it would take to implement."
Can't wait. It's going to be a great e3 :)
"We should have as much new content at Gamescom as we will at E3."......Phil Spencer I'm so happy about Phil going all 1st party. I really want to know what game Decisive games is working on.
Very excited to see what they all bring to the table this year.
They should be happy, they have a great showing for their fans already. However, the majority of their first party games are already known since they only have 9 studios two of which have 2 teams so 11 XBO teams. If they plan on having more exclusives then it's going to be 2nd party (most of which will probably XBLA games, with the exception of a couple), or another big 3rd party exclusive. They also have 9 Kinect / HoloLens / Mobile teams, so we might be seeing HoloLens, E3 should be good for them.
I'm thinking about taking the day off to enjoy Microsoft's E3 conference. They're really beginning to hit their stride.
Im really excited!!
I'm loving all these disagree's, everyone's getting from Sony Fanboys
And the TR FB page just posted something about June 1st Rise of the Tomb Raider so we could get a "First Look" before E3 to get people hyped.
Nice. we will probably see something before E3 then.
Man the hype train is killing me. I don't own an XB1 yet but if Banjo is announced I will run to the nearest Walmart and buy one.
Also rumor has it that MS has secured a 1 year exclusive for Fall Out 4...if true this can be a game changer for MS. Why the disagrees, its just a rumor. Also I wonder if this is what Phil meant when he told XBOx fans that he will make amends for Street Fighter not coming to XBox.
I agree that would be a big advantage for Microsoft and would go a long way to drastically improving their position, here in the U.S. at least. Edit: But they'd have to give Bethesda a HUGE amount of money to get them to disregard the number of PS4's out there.
pHIL IM GONNA BE DISSAPPOINTED IF THERE ISNT AT LEAST 4 NEW IPS FROM FIRST PARTY STUDIOS, SO I AM TEMPERING MY EXPECTATIONS HOPEFULLY THEY CAN SURPRISE FANS OTHERWISE IT WILL BE ANOTHER CASE OF PRE OVERHYPING
Forza 6 gameplay Halo 5 singe player gameplay Gears IV trailer Fable Legends gameplay I wonder if we will see another IP from their first party. I hope its either RPG or Horror.
I think this will definitely be their AAA line-up. Hope they can fill the gaps with promising indies or surprise announcements.
2 new rare games also I'm sure we'll see atleast one of them
Its funny you have that pic as ur avatar cause rumor has it ms is buying the new silent hill which is why P.T Demo was taken off PS store, as a sign to microsoft of good faith. wouldn't that be something. lol.
Scalebound Gears of War 4 Fable legends Tomb Raider Crackdown Gears of War remaster Quantum Break Forza Motorsport 6 Halo 5: Guardians Rare new ip Phantom Dust Killer Instinct sn3 Smite Gigantic Inside A new RTS Cuphead Below Super Hot Elite Dangerous Blues and Bullets World of Tanks Alan Wake Rumored Undead Labs New IP Twisted Pixel New IP Lift london New IP Press Play Mew IP New Dash & DX12 Phil is really a great leader.
Big ups for Gigantic reference. I hope they give us a release date and/or open a beta up at E3. Been loving SMITE, but GIGANTIC looks even better.
It has just begun
Undead Labs new IP is Moonrise and it's Mobile... They've already said State of Decay is going to be a franchise so they'll be focusing on building on that IP. Just wanted to point that out.
Forgot Joe Montana Football and Battletoads. I think the Rare segment should open with a minute teaser of Battletoads (old school 2D beat em' up), then end with the Rare logo on screen by itself. And since it's Rare's 30th Anniversary this year I think, they should then transition into a short montage of all their past games... ...then get to the new IP. To me, that's how Rare should be re-introduced to the gaming world. And the new IP should be a mixture of every IP they have. Battletoads, Conker, Banjo, Joanna, Viva, Kameo..etc.. And they should all be in the game together and call it, "A Rare World". The End.
Huge list of exclusives, going to be another great gaming lineup this holiday season for the xbox.
No Banjo 3 on that list makes me a sad panda.
@Nosred Decisive games, Mohjang/Tell tale games and LXP are also working on a new stuff. They should be on that list.
I agree that lacked some games and dev but only with this list shows how the Xbox will come strong in these fairs and in 2016 forward. Thank to everyone.
As long as I see KI Season 3 we're good.
I will be over the moon. Aria came out Today and she is so fun to use but what is even better is cinders retro costume and accessories.
Yup! Loving Shadows mode though, already have my Spinal shadow in the top 5.
Looking forward to seeing Forza 6. I wan't to know if they can really raise the bar higher than games like Progect Cars. Scalebound is another highly anticipated game. I do not know much about it but it seems like it would be excellent. E3 overall, my most anticipated game is Mass Effect 4. Can't wait for the reveal trailer.
Hot damn I am hyped for E3 this year, so so many games from MS it's a shame it's only 90 minutes
Bloody Nora...M$ is seriously pulling out all the stops, they got all the big guns for Winter 2015. Lucky bastards! :D
E3 front seat. MS all the way
Halo 5 and Tomb Raider, how could i forget.
Can't wait not long to go now guys.
You're really hyping this up Phil. Better be good.
Great work Abriael on bringing us these great Xbox news. Keep up the good work. E3 will be special for xbox gamer as it is more first party oriented. Edit below. What are you talking about? What, getting exicted for a MS conference is constitute as trolling now? You want a cookie or something? Dude, I am a xbox gamer. I AM on your side. Com on dude.
What do you gain from trolling here? Wait until after the MS e3 conference, it ought to shut you up
You put words like special in inverted quotation points before you edited, hence me thinking you were trolling. If you weren't then my bad
I'm hyped,MS has been doing great with xbox since Phil took over.
Phil Spencer just said that "Gamescom will have just as much new announcements as E3 does" Holy cow, looks like MS is pulling out the big dogs.
I think Xbox One will have a great E3. Microsoft are really bringing it this year.
If Phil's feeling great about this E3, then I'm feeling great about it. You go, Phil.
How else would he feel?
E3 is just around the corner but it cant come fast enough. It should be a national holiday day week at this point imo.
Outside of Halo 5, Microsoft has no real 1st party games that the average joe would care about. COD/FIFA/MADDEN. 3rd Party games like these dominate on console and are way more popular than anything.
Sony doesn't seem to concerned for gamers with their "sparse" lineup right now either. Wait about 2 weeks and revisit this point of view. Both MS and Sony will show new stuff.
While they're at it, I would love for MS to make a Fusion Frenzy 3.
He should be the XOne is back at being the number 1 selling console. Over 13 million units shipped and came off with a record breaking holiday 2014.On top of that more AAA titles than one can handle.Halo 5,Forza 6,Fable,and Gears of War shipping in the same year.Cant wait to see more on Crackdown 3,Quantum Break,Scalebound,and Gears of war 4.Plus its said microsoft will have a 9 new exclusives with a new slimmer XOne.Hands down this will be the biggest E3 ever for Xbox
