Yes, it was.

Good exclusives games, good multiplatform games, good news (nº of games with X1 BC, X1/Win10 integration) and nice surprise (Halo Wars 2).

Would be cool if it had more surprises, but all in all, it was a very good Gamescom briefing by Microsoft.

Asking Daniel Bryan

He replied "YES!, YES!, YES!"

Of course it was a success. Announcing 2 more exclusives to be released next year including a Halo Wars sequel which was on my personal wish list really is the icing on a great cake.

showing gameplay of 3 anticipated games for 2016 and all looked amazing and cloud computation is indeed a real thing.

BC games for all X360 gold game is really great news and adds value to subscribers.

I think this is as good as their E3 showing this year. Really awesome shows.

No...Halo Wars 2 is coming to PC, its not exclusive to any platform.

Its also being done by the Sega team, Creative Assembly!!! THE TOTAL WAR TEAM! HYPE! Will buy.

It's a console exclusive just like SFV and the timed exclusive console game No Man's Sky for PS4.

But I am also excited that the Creative Assembly team is doing Halo Wars 2. If there is any team that can do a RTS right it's definitely them.

Great show with lots of good things coming out if it.

I didn't think Quantum Break would surprise me but damm,I was floored by it.

Halo Wars 2 cross platform is so sick. And loads of things like the new chatpad, cross buy, Crackdown with actual cloud compute... So much goodness.

I felt Gamescome was better than their E3 showing, because it felt like a true new experience for XBO with Crackdown, Scalebound, Tomb Raider (aka Naughty Dog's sister company....Naughty B!*@#), and QUANTUM BREAK (blown away) really showing off freshness and originality, which is something Xbox always needed IMO to combat PlayStation.

The core Xbox gamers love Halo, Gears, Forza, and Fable.

I've never loved those franchises like that except Gears and Forza. But Gears was wearing out on me, and 1 Forza is enough for me for the entire gen, and that's usually the 2nd / 3rd title in the main series on that console (example Forza 3 last-gen was all I needed).

Crackdown looks good again and isn't on the 2 year cycle so it feels fresh. Scalebound (aka DMC Monster Hunter Edition) looks a bit rough on combat for now, but this is Platinum so I'm not worried especailly since it has more than a year to go and graphically it's already impressive with 3/4 player co-op. QUANTUM BREAK is the best looking XBO game IMO smashing everything else without equal, and easily in my top 3 games of 2016 with Uncharted 4 and Horizon.

These games are what Xbox needed all along, regardless of what fanboys disagreed and downvoted us for. This is how you get people to buy your console, New original ideas and incredible New IP's like QUANTUM BREAK.

The only downside was they overhyped the amount of games they had, but it was still a really good showing for them.

Good job MS.

I meant to agree with your comment, but disagreed by accident. Damn it. We should be able to change this on N4g by now.

No new Battletoads game was announced so I have to say it was a complete failure.

Well...maybe not a failure but it was good.

It's good to see MS focus on a lot of other types of games for the Xbox One.
