Xbox came to Gamescom 2015 ready to wow, and they did not fail to deliver.
The conference totally blindsided me and I missed the whole thing. Thanks for this!
The conference was very good. I was already interested in Scalebound, but the gameplay demo solidified the purchase. Now I just have to wait until Black Friday for the inevitable Xbox One deals, unless an awesome one comes sooner. There are enough exclusive games that I am interested in to warrant a purchase. SSoD, Halo TMCC, Halo 5, Quantum Break, Scalebound, and Gears 4.
GREAT showing in my opinion. I didn't want any 'Megatons' (I hate that word) They did exactly what they needed, showed games we wanted to see running. Expanded on said games and threw in a few bonuses (GWG backward compatible). They simply DELIVERED on everything people have been asking for, gameplay for the 2016 exclusives, check, proving the power of the cloud is a possibility, check, announced a new exclusive, check. Nothing mind blowing, just a perfect follow up to e3. Honestly, they knocked it out of the park. Im still a PS player (not fanboy) but things are turning around for the XBONE and that's great for all GAMERS. This is a golden age. The XBONE is taking grand strides, it still won't be my main console of choice but it is hitting ALL the right notes. Sony fans, give some credit where it's due.
Scalebound looks as awesome as I hoped. And I may actually be sold on Quantum Break now...
Yep. Those two games were my personal highlights of thhe show.
Overall it was a great showing..Only meh for me was the chat adapter part lol
I loved the chat pad announcement. The chat pad was awesome for 360 and I never understood why they didn't have one for X1 at launch. It's also good they have one button capture features like the PS4.
ya idk it just look to bulky for me,but i agree being able to just press one button does come in handy on PS4.
"During the Xbox briefing it was announced that all future Xbox 360 Games With Gold offerings would be backwards compatible on the Xbox One. That means Xbox One owners with an active Live Gold account will be able to download even more games for free every month." Definitely can't beat that!
These are my top 7 in no particular order. 1. Halo Wars 2, should be even better than 1,now with mouse and keyboard support on XB1 and is being developed by a renowned RTS studio. 2. Scalebound gameplay with dragons and 4 player coop looms awesome! 3. Killer Instinct Season 3 reveal with Battletoad! 4. Crackdown with actual Cloud computation demo that many said was impossible. 5. Quantum Break impressive graphics and gameplay and release date. 6. ALL X360 gold game releases from now on will be BC 7. Hearing Phil Spencer manly words of confidence to gamers.
1. Halo Wars 2 was a pleasant surprise to see and with keyboard and mouse support lets hope we see more RTS games on XB1 with cross platform play. We need to have a new "Age of" game and quick. 2. Scalebound did not disappoint, huge open world wheere you fight and fly along side a customized Dragon...WITH 4 player co-op!! Hell yea! 3. There was a rumor/reveal of characters that might be in Season 3, Rash was one of them and looks like it was spot on. https://www.youtube.com/wat... 4. This is what I was waiting for. To see if the whole cloud computing was real or not. Even if it might be a separate multiplayer mode it still looks like the multiplayer game to play next year. 5. QB looks really good, the graphics look great and the gameplay looks even better. 6. Hell Yeah! For some reason this was the best news to me. Even though now I have to get an even bigger TB drive. 7. MANLY? Lol...i guess. Great conference overall...but still no word on a new Battletoads or any update on Phantom Dust...E3?
The beginning of Xbox One/Win10 cross buys is where it's at. They didn't announce when it begins rolling out or every game (Fable Legends and Gargantuan were named) but it's something I've wanted for a while now and hope they stick to it in the future. That and added backwards compatibility (several new games coming with free older games, Xbox 360's Xbox Live Gold games beginning to be BC, etc) makes the system a bigger value all around.
I believe it will only be select titles for a while in order to give people a reason to purchase the Xbox One. But they are definitely making all the right moves.
well i gotta say..i totally loved scalebound and quantum break. Awesome
I was blown away, this conference was even better than E3!
The only thing that seems to be missing is news/gameplay of recore. But overall, I was impressed. even more excited about the good stuff coming to XB1.
So I missed the whole thing. Cool announcement on the games with gold thing, do we know when xbox 360 games will be available to play on xbox 1 yet?
November I believe
Good stuff! it's going to be a busy gaming schedule for me come November with Fallout tomb raider and all the x360 games I'd like to play still !
I wasn't that impressed, I love the games for gold backwards compatibility. But damn near everything else I already seen and knew about or just plain uninterested they been talking about most of these games since E3 2013. Not saying none of the games are not worth playing, it's I've been patiently waiting for them to come out so I can play.
I'm sorry, I didn't know you had already seen the gameplay of Scalebound, crackdown and others, please next time link the gameplay videos so we can all see it
Seeing other people play a game doesn't impress me, I need a hands on review for myself I don't trust some of these companies they could doctor up the game play it is rare but it has happened before they talked about Crackdown 3 for 2 years I've played the first 2 so I'm already sold on part 3. Scalebound I'm not sold on yet and I never been a Halo fan. I don't have a problem with you disagreeing with me but keep the snark comments to yourself. My comment was based on how I felt, I don't buy games for others so I can't speak on how they feel.
Scalebound was amazing, very DMC like expected. Halo Wars 2 was also great news to hear, good to hear its coming to PC, good to hear they have the Total War devs doing it! Sega does great RTS games!
Beast of an intro. Loved it!
Was impressed how many devs are boxing their old games with new releases , Quantum looked really nice .
So from the comments it would seem the conference delivered to all the xbox fanboys, not that that was going to be hard to do in the first place, for everyone else they all seem largely unimpressed and unconvinced.
PC Gamer here, happy to see the windows 10 cross buy and the games coming to windows 10. Crackdown 3 and Halo Wars 2 are awesome. Not seen the Scalebound or Quantum Break videos yet.
