In less than two months, E3 will be upon us once again and today Microsoft have started sending out press invites to attend their annual briefing with the time, date and location revealed.
This event will be very important for Microsoft. I expect them to buy a major and popular third party publisher like EA or Valve
Hmmm that is bold! Unlikely given that they probably would have had to make a note to investors about a potential purchase that big
I highly doubt that. Maybe a new studio or two will be opened or acquired by MS, I also hope for a few interesting first party announcements. MS needs to have a strong E3 this year much more than prior years.
I agree. It is a live or die situation for them this E3. They need to show their fans and their supporters that they are serious about making games, or this generation will be an even tougher hill to climb for them.
Or they could use the billions to make a dozen+ studios.
You cant just throw money at studios. You need the right people in the right place st the right time.
Probably do something stupid like spend billions on a single ip like pubg.
They cant buy valve
I hope they invest more in their first party, hire industry veterans to helm new studios and really increase their output of games.

Those of you saying "this E3 is very important to MS..." just stop. Nothing is won or lost at E3. You're putting entirely too high an importance on it. Generations are won and lost way before anything is revealed at E3. There is absolutely nothing MS can do to reverse their fortunes this generation. By year end they will be in 3rd place and theres nothing they can do about it.
What are talking about, nobody is saying anything about 1st 2nd 3rd place. People are simply making note that this E3 more than ever MS needs to put up or shut up and I think many would agree. Now you should just stop trying to bring fanboy BS in to it.
There is no "fanboy bs" in what I'm saying. It's the truth. E3 has very little baring on how well a console does or doesn't do. That's why I don't get the whole "make or break" mentality from people. Stop looking to a singular event that's going to transform the Xbox. It doesn't work that way.
Completely forgot. I'm looking forward to overkills walking dead gameplay. Haven't seen anything yet :(
It’s a no brainer that they need 1st party titles, but aside from that I’d love to see achievements for the back compat og Xbox games. That’s a long shot, but would be awesome.
do or die for xbox brand. i prefer gaming on xbox since the 360 but the games sony put out are too far in both number and quality a better offering it isnt even close how far microsoft have come off the gas.
This will be a weak E3 for Microsoft this year for simple and obvious reasons. 1: 3 of their studios games that were announced in 2014 have/or will release in 2018, meaning they'll have nothing to show. 2: we know what the other 3 studios are doing (Halo, Gears and Forza H) 3: xbox 2 will probably release in 2019 or 2020, so I'm expecting they'll keep big announcements for next E3 Knowing what we know it will be filled with 3rd party games intentionally masqueraded as exclusives during the show (but 1 hour later we'll hear the confirmation of it being multiplatform) Halo 6, Forza horizon 4,Gears 5 and we'll get one "surprise" game we won't get to play till 2020...(fable or perfect dark) It won't be all bad, but we should all go in this E3 knowing what we already know (that they'll disappoint us) and maybe, just maybe they'll surprise us (I won't be surprised but enthusiast might)
Just have to wait and see what Microsoft brings to the table hopefully not more features but actual games that are actually on par with what Sony and Nintendo offer for titles.
Microsoft need a new IP like God of War.
