Andrew Gonzalez from Xbox Enthusiast Writes: "Microsoft had a strong E3 filled with announcements that ranged from Backwards Compatibility, Rare Replay, Sea of Thieves, ReCore, and it featured some cool demos. The company had a lot to live up to going in to Gamescom and I think that Microsoft held their ground. While the show wasn't perfect by a long shot, there were more positive aspects than negatives and in the end, that's a great thing. Seeing gameplay for titles that are launching next year successfully hyped up the audience and the show definitely left a good impression with me. Microsoft says that this year is "the greatest games lineup in Xbox history", but I actually think that next year is looking a lot stronger."
