5 Things Microsoft Should Have Showcased at Gamescom (Instead of Disappointment)

Microsoft had an excellent pre-show for its announcement of the Xbox One X: Project Scorpio Edition and players being able to pre-order the Xbox One X. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the pre-show – that was the actual conference. Calling it a “conference” isn’t even accurate. It was like Spike’s VGX Awards 2013 except more professional and somehow even more lacking. Joel McHale, are you listening?

I would have shown the online destruction of Crackdown 3 after seeing Cloudgines UFO game.

Then I would have reannounced Coalition's game

Then, called Epic and threw money at them to make the Samaritan and The Infiltrator

Then pulled out either a Crimson Skies remake with air and ground battles ala Warhawk style or just have a very Bad Fur Day.

If that were me working at Microsoft. Because they need something big. Because lack of internal investment is rearing its ugly head. And not just Aaron's.

Gamescom didn't do much and was boring to watch but I guess the show has always been more about hands on with games than announcing new ones. Still would have been nice for some surpirses but it appears they don't have much to show.

You sure seem quite invested in what's going on with Microsoft. Kind of odd considering you tell people you hardly ever post in MS articles but it appears that's where you spend most of your energy, why is that?

Yep. Gamescom was about making an appearance at show, and allowing attendees get a hand-on with the console so they can spread the word. Exclusive will come in time. This is about the power of the X with current games.
All of these concerns are being propagated, and all I see are gamers pre-ordering across the globe.

"You sure seem quite invested in what's going on with Microsoft. Kind of odd considering you tell people you hardly ever post in MS articles but it appears that's where you spend most of your energy, why is that?"

And why do you post in Xbox and PlayStation articles? You've told many a time you don't own a current gen console, only a PC. For someone who doesn't own a console you sure as heck post a lot in console articles, why is that?

The fact that you are here asking me and not him continues to highlight the double standards. The only reason I am mentioning it is because of the countelss times I keep getting aksed why I'm in this topic or that topic while you guys continue to ignore the countless others like him.

I however can see Microsoft's downfalls (namely its first party output) but I can also appreciate what they are doing. Such as putting their games on the PC, having consumer friendly options like digital returns and allowing its customers to choose alternative options like EA Access on their closed systems. I can also appreciate other consumer friendly decisions like a free upgrade to those who already bought Recore getting the definitive version. Their interest in protecting back catalog games also benefits me in the future.

The problem moving forward is every article in the future depicting the Xbox One X as the most powerful console (such as head to head comparisons) is going to be continually met by the same people who invest 90% of their energy talking about 10% of the software sales. These people are not gamers, they are only here to push the narrative of backing a brand. Which is why there are so many arguments here.
