There's excitement and hype bubbling after a mysterious tweet from Xbox saying that they're presentation is going to be BIG.
New Console, new games. Exciting times ahead.
Lord phil will be coming on stage with such swagger to the scorpio reveal. Ahhhh what time to be alive. Spoils to be enjoy. Tears...by some will be shed.
Now will those tears will be of laughter, madness or joy I hope for the later but finally we will know for sure what Scorpio is capable of doing and hopefully there'll be some exciting games that'll take full advantage of it and not be dragged down by the other systems that are out now
What are they going to say? "wait for our E3 presentation!! It's going to SUCK!!", they have to say it's going to be BIG, and it also needs to, it's E3! and they are going to introduce a new console on top of having at least one hour to show us stuff.
Potentially a game of his choice after killing off the the last bit of the Mattrick era.
They better announce some games, their release list for the year is looking pretty bare.
lol... new games...
Oh you shall get enough reveals of games to quench they thirst. A grand showing.
New Halo 3 remaster, new Forza 7, new Gears 2 remaster, and maybe a new IP that we'll see in 3 years, provided it doesn't get cancelled lol
New Halo, Gears and Forza in 4K.
New Halo, Gears, and Forza powered by the Cloud.
Look at the fear with your downvotes....heaven forbid you are excited about gaming. What gamer would be afraid of multiple gaming companies offering great things?...one company succeding does not mean the other failed. So many fanboys here.
Need a good reason to buy Scorpio.. Good luck MS. Here's hoping they show something appealing since Sony gonna bombard exclusives and gameplays this E32017... Cant wait...
I hope they drop some serious BOMBS this E3. I'm not just talking about games, but acquiring some serious 1st party companies. Time to spend those billions.
There's definitely some mystery surrounding MS's E3 this year. Looking forward to seeing what they have to say. Wouldn't mind going back to the Xbox world either, I certainly enjoyed it more over my time with PS3&4.
Xbox NEEDs so badly to get new Ips its insane. I cannot believe the thinking at the top. They are almost as screwy as Nintendo, but backwards. They make modern machines with little first party support where Nintendo makes outdated gimmicks but has the 1st party titles
well said....I agree completely. The hardware and functionality is great but ips are lacking. I would love to see a Halo 6 debut with the scorpio.
You say IPs are lacking, and then go on to say you would love to see Halo 6 debut with the Scorpio.
This is the problem.
i want new ips as well but it make sense for the flagship franchise to be there art scorpio at launch.
Recore was a new i.p, Sea of Thieves is a new I.P Quantum Break was a new I.P and Scalebound was a new I.p before it was cancelled and apparently it was cancelled for a good reason. MS first party support is fine. Everyone is praising Sony because they had a good start to the year but conveniently forget they had a horrible end to last year. MS on the other hand had a great finish to this year( From September on Recore, Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War 4, Dread RIsing 4) and Halo Wars 2 comes out in less than a week. Phils Spencer already said there would be more new I.P's announced at e3 so i'm not sure what the complaints are.
are you retarded!? that's becasue Sony spaces out their games over a space of 12 months! and had released quite a few good games earlier in the year! MS are sooo fixated on releasing everything at the end of the year it consts them and relases are forgotten...
When people talk about new IPs they mean quality ones... Quantum Break although a good game was as forgettable as The Order 1886 great premise but forgotten as quick as the game was completed! Recore was and still is hot garbage... Scalebound doesn't need mentioning and Sea of Thieves looks like a great concept and we're waiting to see if it bares fruit..
If you think MS first party support is fine then you are part of the problem... because having NOTHING but a yearly entry to one of the 2 Forza series and switching between Halo and Gears of War is actually disgusting!
"it consts them and relases are forgotten..."
How does that even make sense, and if I remember correctly QB, Ori and Sunset didn't release during the holidays.
I've notice how arguments seem to always come down to a strawman when coming from the more Sony 'fanboyish' side. How they always demand new IP's from MS and then when someone presents them with the new IP's so far for Xbox One the argument then breaks down to "those games were terrible". Again, nothing MS can do will ever satisfy the mantra that this site has adopted.
Sony finished off the year 2016 stronger than the Xbox one, that is for sure
Dead rising 4 is not exclusive to the Xbox one. And it is timed and will come to the ps4, not that it was anything good really.
Then you get ps4's exclusive line up September to December
Odin sphere (easily one of the best games of 2016)
World of final fantasy
Dragon quest builders
The last guardian
are we conveniently forgetting these games to justify our agenda?
Then I don't need to remind you that yakuza zero, gravity rush and Nioh have been very well received. Horizon is looking to be one of the best games of 2017. Persona 5, which is a another massive hitter is coming April and now the insane trilogy is coming June . There is no question as to which console has the better exclusives
Not trolling but, don't you think some people within camp x want, you know, a little more. It's not blasphemous to voice that with ms being such a cash rich company. I mean, from reading in this very same tread, people seem excited for both new hardware AND software. Rightly so.
Sometimes nothing will ever be enough for detractors, I get that but let's be honest here. . .ms need to compete and start punching at their weight. You'd be foolish to think it's only Sony fanboys who think that and if you do then maybe you are a part of the problem because ms listens to those who shout everything is awesome in the face of criticism. It's not your money getting used so demand more like some demand of Sony or Nintendo. Let's not kid ourselves, people on n4g have a lot of negative things to say at Sony despite their dominance in hardware and software. . . Critics are everywhere.
Good luck to ms, hope they surprise the fans and detractors with more games outside of the trifecta . . . ....... Not too much to ask is it
don't forget sunset overdrive was also new ip and ori and the blind forest. oh and cuphead should come out this year.
"MS first party support is fine."
Congratulations. You're just won the comment most divorced from reality of the year.
I know it's Feb, but I can't fathomably see anyone a comment as stupid.
The only new 1st party IP they have is Sea of Thieves. Hardly a game that's going to set the gaming world on fire. CD3 is well enough removed from the fan base, since no one talked about it for years before CD 3 was revealed that it can light the world on fire if MS manages to deliver on it's one and only selling point that they've marketed the game with.
There's not as much money and dedication going into the Xbox brand because it's not their big money maker. For Sony. It's either make games, or cease to exist. So I could see why Sony are working harder. I do agree that Xbox/MS need more games though.
MS should buy NINTENDO. problem solved. great hardware meet great software!
Chocolate and Peanut Butter!
I doubt they could get the investors to do that. Nintendo is worth quite a bit of money, and they aren't actually for sale.
So this is what the comments section of a positive Xbox piece looks like before the PS4G crowd arrives to down vote anything that isn't "PS4 rulz, X$ drulz" : )
Yes. And it was the PS4 crowd that made them lose their market share too!
Not their lack of software and repetitive titles :/
Well you xbox guys refuse to hold MS accountable for their abysmal exclusive list (sorry, console exclusive list since everything will be available on PC as well) so someone has to.
Come on MS, give me a reason to buy a Scorpio. Hopefully we'll see plenty of new games.
For me, if MS comes out and say that all mods will be supported and the user will be free to install whatever they want (like a pc), then I will be in.
What good are mods with no games? Come on.
i think there may be a hardware feature that every xbox one game before is now 60fps / 1080p
I hope they deliver.
It's good for the industry if they do.
I hope so to cuz for some reason I feel sorry for the xboners having nothing new to play but da some ol crap
It's strange how people don't understand competition is good, it's stops other companies from charging whatever they like and getting lazy and churning out crap. Personally I would like to see Nintendo and Microsoft step up, but Sony is having a pretty strong year already by the looks of it.
I hope they are advertising a lot of games to follow up on the Scorpio. The Xbox brand is dying.
The most powerful console in the world will be unleashed. Who shall tame this beast? None be worthy.
Cringing at the beast? It beats its chest with glee. In anticipation to spectators. It yells "Native 4K" In the distance.
It also yells "no games..."
A Ferrari with a big, bad engine and no wheels to drive anywhere.
Uh...I hope that's sarcasm.
they say this every year
Every year team Xbox backs it up.
Microsoft's 2014 E3 says hello, from the depths of despair
I don't know what Big means. Every company always says it is going to be the Biggest, baddest, best show ever. I be worried if Microsoft/Sony/Nintendo didn't announce that their E3 wasn't going to be BIG.
What has me intrigued is the ability of Microsoft to keep a lid so far on the actual design of the Scorpio. Now that Xbox hardware is under the prevue (since Xbox One S) of Panos Panay I look forward to great things. Panay and his team of engineers always seem to keep things close to the vest. And never disappoint. Amazing we don't know a whole lot about the Scorpio now, considering how things get leaked everywhere else. Microsoft hardware under Panay reminds me of that excitement Apple use to bring with their announcements. Any leaks that would appear out of Cupertino use to be minor, often wrong - misdirects. There was this air of mystery and excitement coming from Apple. That is no longer the case with Apple. Panay seems to have captured that excitement of the old Apple for Microsoft (with the Surface brand and now Xbox.)
Thanks to Panay and his team I have no worries about the hardware. I just hope that Phil and his team can fill in the missing game pieces to actually make it a BIG event for Xbox.
You're right. Activision get ripped to shreds when they say this about their new Cod games.
When Microsoft say it it's "All hail Phil." Lol.
Regardless of power Nintendo games will always be superior to Microsoft, dont make me laugh a new powerful system and all you are hoping for is halo 6. No wonder they churn out the same shit they have a lot to prove to match Sony and hopefully Nintendo.
I get it you like children's games. I have no problem with that
Besides scorpio and assuming some Scorpio Patched games, I want to see what they're bringing to the table. I was really interested in scalebound and hated it got cancelled so i need something new to get my excitement back up.
Sea of Thieves looks cool but has questionable longevity. Crackdown is the big one really supposed to release this year for me on the One but I want more so hope they have surprises.
I'm still waiting for something "big" from ms. Hope they deliver this time.
Hopefully they'll be showing off a slew of original ip being released within the next 12 months otherwise just pack it in.
They kind of need to go big. I still enjoy xbox, but they have been a little disappointing... please give us something new and exciting!
Yeah babyyyyyyyyyyyyyy time for vacation time
MS have to go big.. they've legit got their destiny in their hands... A great and powerful console to come and potential to start a fresh.. they just HAVE to make sure they fu**ing talk about GAMES running on the system and tell us about the games that are coming not old games ¬_¬ because as of right now besides power they havent got a catalogue that'll warrant the purchase of a Scorpio...
And just as important IMHO... They're gonna need a favour from Sony that they dont continue to have a stellar E3 presentation because if Sony do that it'll suck all the wind out of their Xbox E3 panel... If Sony decide to show off more Day's Gone... God of War, Uncharted 4 : The Lost Legacy and The Last Of Us Part 2 Sony could completely ruin MS' presentation so they really need a stellar E3 and hope for a Sony fumble here.
How about enough comparisons to whose is better and more hoping they're both stellar
well is that not a given...? that's the generic response when companies go head to head but the simple truth is there will be a 'Who won E3' convo and lord knows the amount of shit posts and article son n4g will be incredible!
Im not even saying this as a PS Fanboy im actually being serious when i say i want the Scorpio to do well.. it just means Sony will have to dig their feet in that much deeper which will only benefit me and the Xbox gamers will of course have their great system of choice so all of us win really...
But there is no doubt that announcements could lose wind through great decisions made by competition.. that's just a fact of life.
Very true. It is distasteful after the first day though.
They need something big, and not just more Scorpio talk. People want games.
Looking forward to see what MS has in store for me. They had better have exclusives coming THIS YEAR that I want to play. I'm not giving MS a pass any longer if they don't deliver this year with games.
What's new?. Xbox tries to go big every year and xbox fans get the same rotating IP's and cancelled games.
Uncharted 4 existing means you're a hypocrite.
You do understand U4 is the last Uncharted while we exact another Halo, Gears and Froza right?.
