Microsoft could have a lot of cards up its sleeve for what it promises to be its biggest E3 showing ever. Here are five things we'd like to see to make that claim come true.
New Ip from 343, Coalition,Playground games etc that would be MS biggest E3 in the past 10 years imo. The strategy for MS is never gonna change from this point on. Its not a system, live features or services just simply games.
Lmfao. You think you are smarter than an entire team that has already thought about that two years ago or more? You realize change takes more than a couple days right? Actual dev cycles and product cycles are measured in years. They’ve known about their issues for a while. I actually already have some info and people will be surprised. They know they have to show a lot and be different than years before. Phil said that himself in plenty of interviews. They have a renewed momentum now and want to get it moving even stronger. If you’re wondering how I know, it’s because I am booked on media/video jobs fo them for e3. Just like how I made the black ops 4 reveal trailer (and I can prove that cuz I timelapsed myself doing it)
And yet why would you be on here. Yet another lier who wants people to believe in him for some reason. Please go back to bed before mommy gets you
He never claimed to be smarter just giving an opinion that I agree with.
Yeah, dev cycles are a long time. Doesn't seem to stop Sony from having plenty to release each year, along with plenty more to show each year. Was MS just not working on much 3-4 years ago, is that why they don't have much this year and last? Everyone understands that games take time, it doesn't mean that MS didn't drop the ball and just didn't have anything going....or cancelled more than we know. Should we just say it's cool MS has stuff for the future, when they didn't bother to have the support there earlier? Can they not be criticized for how they screwed that up...all while acting like they were going to have the best line up in Xbox history for a couple years running, or going to have this huge show, where they mostly showed indies, or this year when they likely fail to deliver yet again? Wait for E3 is more a meme now than ever, and that's because there is no way to take it seriously. Maybe one day MS will deliver, and MS fan boys will act like that removes all the years that MS didn't deliver. MS did great during the first half of the 360. Despite not being interested, or a fan of MS, I could easily recognize why they gained so much popularity last gen. This gen, they are nowhere near that level of output, yet a lot of people are acting like MS is at it's prime. Last gen, things like SoT would have been barely noticed by the hardcore. This gen, it's become the poster child of how great MS releases are, and we should just wait for it. That's a sad state compared to the days of the 360 when they had Halo, Gears, Forza, Fable, Bioshock, Mass Effect, and heavy exclusive deals for some of the bigger games last gen. Xbox fans seem to have really lowered their standards, and it's just sad, because at least last gen, they were more interesting by fighting the console war with games.
even if they buy ea they wont announce it at e3 xbox-x price cut wont be announced at e3 pub-g on game pass, wont be announced at e3 new ip, its certainly possible after all it is e3 Bring Back some old Franchises, Fable
A One X price cut could be announced at E3, it's been done in the past. Pub G on Games Pass could easily be announced at E3, unlikely but they talked for 10 minutes about a real-life car for 10 minutes last year that nobody in the audience could dream about affording so if they can put on a car show they can reshow an old game and give that announcement. Fable would be awesome but if those rumors are true it's too early to see that. Halo is still MIA so maybe that but I'm sure after the hate on Halo 5 and how low the fans moral is they are treading very carefully. I'd love to see a Crimson Skies remaster/remake or even a sequel.
I don't think Pubg panned out the way they planned considering it's technical problems pursisting after numerous patches and losing the popularity contest to Fortnite
Somewhere around 5 million sold since mid December. I think it panned out just fine. Me and almost everyone on my Playlist plays it every day for at least 2 hours. The game is in game preview and you literally see the changes with every patch they make but it's still a tense, fun ass time. If people are still willing to pay 30 dollars to pay the game then who cares if people are playing the free Fortnite. Free is damn hard to beat for any game but still it keeps trucking on.
@DeadMan Valid point,I'm keen to delve in once it comes out of early access and arrives on PS4 as it's a timed exclusive only for Microsoft
Belinker300 I think PUBG will remain exclusive. Epic have beaten them to the punch on other platforms, I can even see a Switch version coming. Why waste money trying to compete, when they could just make as much money off MS by making the game a full exclusive. More money in the bank and less work, win win.
PUBG runs like shit on the XB1, I upgraded to the Slim and there was a minor difference but nothing to rave about, the game preview system should be abolished.
Buying EA would be major news, and be all over the net before it could ever be announced. That'd be a huge purchase, and it'd be covered by every financial publication in existence. X1X price cut would likely come closer to the holidays, and be announced right before. PUBG on game pass I could maybe see. New IP...quite possible. Fable is possible....assuming MS is actually truthful about not wanting to announce too early.
The only thing MS needs to do is announce new IP's and Sequels to fan favorite games, but will we see that? I highly doubt it.
MS has lost its identity long ago
Agreed.. They have the hardware,just need the exclusive games and lots of them
I hope they let insomniac work on a new banjo or conker after they have finished spiderman
they should go on a spending spree and buy up as many indie teams as they can, then toss 20 mil at each to let them build games that are like AA+ like hell blade or that kingdom come game.
People don’t understand what Microsoft meant when they said “biggest ever”. That means it’s their largest presence and will allow for more people than ever before. Larger booths as well between the theater and convention center. They were speaking literally. Not on the size of their media briefing Microsoft is digging themselves a hole as well for hyping a conference that will likely disappoint those expecting megaton announcements
I think if people are raising their expectations for MS E3 briefing after all these years, then it's their own fault. I'd rather think they're going to do horribly again, and be surprised, rather than think they're going to deliver, and end up being disappointed.
Xbox exclusive games for every system including PS4 and Switch.There is a lot of articles and YouTube videos speculating on this atm
Oh, youtube videos?! DAMN IT MUST BE TRUE!
Oh,did I say it was true? I thought I said speculating
I know the "press" needs to be optimistic to stay relevant with the public, but when will people stop being surrender to unwarranted hype? How many disappointments will they have to simply wait for the event to begin? Don't get too excited, fellas, it's Microsoft we're talking about here.
Still remember how Sony "won" E3 2015 according to N4G? Shen Mue 3, FF VII and The Last Guardian were the reasons for that. :-D :-D
Sony "won" by WO. But that was the worst E3, for sure.
still can't believe we haven't seen anything of the FFVII remake. hopefully this year
The press doesn't care either way. They just want to hype things up, then make excuses later, then they'll just criticize after that to get more clicks. The majority of the press we see has long since lost any objectivity in it's viewpoints. Criticism isn't even across the board. Praise seems to be biased and not applied equally.
Well, maybe a Jade Empire 2 and the rumoured Forza Horizon in Japan could bring MS back in the game, but so far, Sony is absolutely killing them, when it comes to having a great and varied line-up of exclusives.
2 games going to bring back them into the game? Oh man, how low you think about PS4 and the market. You need to do proper research how many exclusives actually PS4 getting and i am not talking about well known games. The number is more then embarrasing.
I depends how you look at it. we know about most of sonys games for the next 2 years but we only know about Microsoft games for the next 3 months. is that because Microsoft haven't got anything or because they just don't want to announce games early anymore, who knows. but looking at this years big hitters sony has Detroit become human, god of war and spiderman. Microsoft has sea of thieves, state of decay 2 and crackdown 3 so seems pretty even to me
If they announced on e3 that they bought sony and nintendo then yeah that would be the biggest e3 ms has ever done.
I don't care from whom, but I'm looking for something completely new and unexpected this E3. Not another shooter, not another adventure game not an IP reboot or sequel, I want to see something completely new and unexpected.
kinda like what rare did with sea of thieves
Dreams is the next step for LBP. To say they're nothing alike is false. The adding of printing doesn't improve the game. You're stretching like crazy there.
Dream isnt anything like lbp. Dreams let's you build 3d models you can print. It lets you build full games and possibly even sell them on pan store. If you are looking for a new and revolutionary game, nothing matches dreams
Everything you've mentioned as new has nothing to do with it as a game but as a creative tool. Everything you could do in LBP has been greatly improved and advanced in Dreams as far as gaming goes. You can create scenes, music, games of many types, and the like. I appreciate the more mature and creative expansive approach to Dreams, but it is the logical extension of what they began with LBP which is the philosophy of Create, Play, Share. That is what defines both games, only with technology they've advanced it to provide more, but not to create something that itself isn't made to create things we've already seen many times over (other games). Selling me on exporting models isn't a game and isn't really that hard to do considering the design has evolved to that naturally with 3d printing over the last ten years. At best, the only thing that will be new with Dreams are what people create with it and that doesn't mean they won't be things we haven't seen it experienced before. I'm looking for innovation in games, not advancements in game making tools.
They are nothing alike. They share a genre, and lbp3 created that genre, and they share a developer. Beyond those two things they are nothing alike. Dreams is a full music creation suite Dreams is able to 3d print mock ups for toys or inventions even. Dreams is in 3d Dreams doesn't even use polygons so it is a complete revolution in gaming just from a technical standpoint Watch the streams of that game and see how crazy unique it is
I think if they just announced a game it would be their biggest E3 yet.
Just read the tags then no need to read the article
I'll never forget when they showed final fantasy 13 on their stage and everyone lost their minds lol
Fable and Good and Evil 2. Something with Pubg for sure. Crackdown 3 maybe. Game pass, and price cut possibly. Third party all the way...anthem and the rest...call of duty and such. Bla Bla Bla Windows.
Yeah, no, those five ideas would not make it the biggest Microsoft E3 showing in the company's history. For starters, XBOX E3 2006 is tough to beat. From Fable II to Forza 2, it had a little bit of everything, and a whole lot of awesome. Plus, Microsoft had the daunting task of beating the impactful E3 of its 2005 showing—which was no slouch. In any case, to beat 2006, XBOX needs to announce something huge. An XBOX One X price drop is going to happen regardless, so it doesn't count. Bring a new Fable RPG, a new HALO—and not some Reach 2 or Wars 3, Scalebound escavated, and add Banjo-Kazooie 3. Do those things and Microsoft will be at least headed in the correct direction to have a huge E3.
yep I think they need to get a good balance between new ip and reviving old games. my dream e3 would be a new banjo or conker, at least one new ip and kotor3 or kotor remake. I would also like to see cyberpunk gameplay and splinter cell gameplay not bothered whos stage it's on
They don't need to beat their prior shows. They just need to have a solid show that gets people excited. Not the kind of fan boy excitement where it's only them, but everyone....even those not really into Xbox.
Mostly agree with you, rainslacker. It's just that the title of the story is about it being Microsoft's best yet, and that would indicate it needs to be better than the one from o'six. For me I would only get excited about XBOX again if Microsoft made a formal, meaningful apology that acknowledges the fact the company didn't have gamers' best interest in mind when the 'always on' feature was planned; and, that its going to stop using gamers as nothing more than an avenue to take over the living room, instead caring more about the soul of video games. Would also be interested if Microsoft sold off or split XBOX off into a standalone company with no executive powers connected between the two establishments. Other than that, Microsoft could literally announce a teleporter during the next E3 and I wouldn't want anything to do with it.
Fair enough...although they said biggest, not best. Keep in mind, last year's show was actually MS biggest ever in terms of announcements and what not, and it was a terrible show, with a few high points here or there.
Biggest is an implication by Microsoft to allude being better—not that the two are mutially exclusive of one another. Anyways, good point. Semantics are best left for courtrooms, though. Even though sometimes N4G posts can certainly feel like judge, jury and executioner. Lol Thanks for the civil conversation.
MS implication was explained in the press release in this case. It referred to the amount of space they'd take up at the show, and off site in another venue.
Five biggest announcements from Microsoft Xbox are 1) XBOX TWO, 2)XBOX THREE, 3)XBOX FOUR, 4)XBOX FIVE and 5) XBOX SIX nothing else and no exclusives.
I'd say some sort of halo related title maybe halo 6 but a handful of new ips.. An Xbox 2 would be to soon
Halo 6 up against Anthem would be interesting and Xbox 2 so soon after One X,not sure about that.If Sony announce PS5 I think they would go into damage control
Ps5 won't be announcing thats for sure! But from the Xbox New Halo or Gears New Fable Lost Oddysee (sequel/prequel) New Perfect Dark Will be good
I think anthem will shine I mean bio ware really needs it to right about now andromada left a bad taste in to many mouths I'm not sure how the two would stack up tbh i seriously just want a quality story in halo again like the original games I saw some articles about the ps5dev kits being sent out just recently so I'd say they are at least two years minimum from an announcement which gives the x more time to serve it's purpose being the more powerful mid gen console
halo 6 will not release this year I am 100% certain
Would people/fanboys/journalist stop saying about MS buying EA or any other publishers and devs like Valve which is making multiplat games since forever. Its quite annoying and pathetic at the same time since it indirectly points out how incompetent Xbox division is by resorting to such thing instead of making their own studios ground up since they are one of the richest company in the world. But no people think rich company should just buy what is popular branding it with their name and calling it their invention. Just like what bill gates did with windows, he paid someone and bought it and patented it like it was his invention unlike steve jobs who really does his own thing. What this only does is further the fanboy agenda of xbox fans so they can brag about "Hey MS bought EA, Sony and Nintendo is doomed"!! Game over man!!....
Its easy, show 5 new exclusive IPs. Get either Viking or Rune IP and counter God of War.Get the guys behind Amnesia or Outlast on board to counter Last of Us, and make an offical Indiana Jones game to counter Uncharted.Plus an exclusive Star Wars game. Done.Oh and an exclusive Dead Space would be great.
Simply announcing all that wouldnt do much good... now if youre saying they announced all that at e3 and released it in the same year = amazing... but seeing as 99% of that would take 3-5 years to dev and even if it only took 2 years another consoles release would over shadow it. Its best ms start looking to the future before being left behind like l4d. Its a bit pathetic for them to try NOW after 5 years of barely competing at e3. I know xbox ppl will hang in there until the very end but this "wait until e3 mantra" has to be getting old. Gamers have heard that so much this gen its cringeworthy to hear it said now.
If Nintendo could do it, MS can do it, too.
kotor remake or kotor 3 would be amazing. but I've been dreaming of that reveal at every e3 for the last 4 years
Same "new" ips ... 4.5 years in, are some really expecting them to announce new (unique) ips?! after cancelling scalebound?, that fable game and what ever coalition was working on before being pulled to make gears 4. Fellas ... it is over (long time ago). From now on, people will only get an xbox if they simple hate to fiddle around with the pc (like myself), else if ya all already have a 1080Ti you probably already own microsofts next gen xbox (xbox 4). Microsoft has a steep hill ahead, fix their image, fix their reputation of handling games/ips and to offer a compelling machine. Objectively speaking, they haven't done anything in this regard ever since 2001(same image, same pr spins, same games, same, same, same). And Nintendo is soon 2nd place, in under a year or two. Tough future for every Microsoft apostle out there ...
Buying EA would be adisaster. Another example of a Microsoft throwing money at the problem to hide their lack of first party titles.
1. Drop GaaS 2. Price cut on XB1 and the X 3. Allow for development of SP games without forcing MP (Scalebound) 4. All PC exclusive game on win 10 store will now be available on Steam 5. Make more deals with publishers for more third party support
XBOX one X price cut. New games - not old games that have been ruined by microtransactions or different developers (Halo, Gears). But seriously PS has the market and Nintendo with their 720p console. Sorry MS but your time is done and I am not a hater just realistic, I own PC, PS4 and XB1 and rarely use my XB1...
A realistic bomb they could drop: New Perfect Dark that looks good, includes Goldeneye remaster w/online play (similar to modern warfare remaster)
