Xbox Needs Its Own PSX

PSX (also known as PlayStation Experience) is a fantastic event full of reveals, demo, panels, and all things PlayStation. Andrew from Xbox Enthusiast thinks that the Xbox brand can benefit highly from its own event modeled after PSX that can focus on UI updates, transparency between the company and fans, as well as a place to highlight what games Xbox will be offering in the future.

Call it the HGF... and they'll just tell you you're getting a New Halo Gears or Forza game..

Xbox first needs it's own games. Or eventually the next Xbox-only even will be it's funeral.

would have been a good idea some years ago.
it will be completly worthless today.

Dim the lights
fill the place with smoke
add intense music
Phil's voice "The power of the Cloud"
Turn on the lights
Smoke fades

Yep that's microsoft this gen

MS had their own show, for quite a few years in fact. They were the X shows and each year it would change to that particular year. Like X08, X09, X10...

You could say that when MS stopped with X13 is when Sony started with PSX in 2014. This gen it really does seem like MS and Sony switched places, or it's all just coincidence.

Exactly what I was thinking. What in the hell would the show be about?

To present the amount of pixels each One X enhanced 3rd Party game has over the Pro port?

Alarmingly truth-based jokes aside, yeah the xbox needs to gain its Identity back by way of good exclusives first, lots of them in fact, and then they can have their own show. A show where Phil doesnt fill up the time schedule by giving vague promises but to deliver on them.

It would be a magic show, with smoke and mirrors - the kids would LOVE it 😁👍

Where else can they get out all those new marketing tag lines for people to play?

Microsoft used to host their own Xbox show event that was an annual trade show in the past decade since 2001 similar to what PSX is now.

But since 2013 they’ve seem to given up on the idea. One year later their rival adopted the idea for their own brand and have kept the spirit alive ever since.

If not mistaken, Sony´s PlayStation Experience started around the same time. Or a few year later (2002).

That'd be a really short show looking at the lack of exclusives in this current generation.

My thoughts exactly, I was going to say:

"To Show What?"

mark_parch5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

totally agree they need games to show. I think it would be great if at e3 2018 they only showed games releasing later that same year and tease games early 2019. then have another show maybe dec or jan going more in depth with the games releasing early 2019 and maybe tease games for e3 and so on and so on. never looking to far into the future only ever showing games releasing in the next 12 months. but again they need way more games. we have state of decay 2, crackdown 3 and sea of thieves early next year then possibly ori and the will of the wisp, below, ashen and maybe horizon 4. rare are definitely working on another game ( praying it's a new banjo and kazooie )

rainslacker4d ago

They have a bus that travels around Australia that people can spend about 10 minutes in.

That seems about what they need right now to get the word out.

Geeeebeeee5d ago

does it though
if they had more unique stuff to show off. but right now if they did something like that, it's going look so bad.
maybe when they have more to show they will do it

mark_parch5d ago

like the absolute shambles at gamescom which was just embarrassing.

optimus5d ago

i disagree. doing so will set a bad precedent for e3. then they will save the best stuff for their own show. nintendo already has it's own show, granted it takes place online but during e3 noless. ea has it's own experience that also takes place during e3 week ( i went to it :p). if more companies do their own thing then we won't have much of an e3 to showcase. not to mention that putting together a showcase like that cost a lot of money (except for nintendo) so why spend money on 2 or 3 if you count the PAX conventions that take place around the country throughout the year.
