Phil Spencer on Twitter: "Should be closer to 100 minutes from our last run-through."
About the same length as last year's E3, hopefully they'll showcase some surprises. I predict that they'll start with Cyberpunk 2077.
That's a bold prediction. I like it. I hope that Ms has some first party surprises for us as well.
Well CP wont be exclusive so what's the point? Xbox needs true exclusives, quality ones. If they manage that then there's still hope. Common MS enter the arena like you mean it, its about frickin time!
@UltraNova If Sony can win E3 with Shenmue 3 and Final Fantasy 7 remake, then why can't Microsoft also have a chance by showing third party, non exclusive games?
"..., then why can't Microsoft also have a chance by showing third party, non exclusive games?" You get the chance you earn. Sony doesn't just show those multiplatform 3rd party games. They have exclusive titles that do not appear on other valid gaming platforms.
Xbox Fanboys' Hope Rises Again...
90 minutes will be about multiplats.
***Well CP wont be exclusive so what's the point? Xbox needs true exclusives, quality ones. If they manage that then there's still hope. *** Same point as Destiny and CoD on Sony stages, exclusive timed content and it's on your stage rather than nowhere as CDPR doesn't have their own event.
fewDankmemes Claiming that Sony only won E3 2015 because of FFVII Remake and Shenmue is disingenuous. Do you realize that Horizon and The Last Guardian were announced at that show? Dreams was also announced and the grand finale was that amazing Uncharted 4 gameplay demo with the Jeep. Games like World of Final Fantasy and Firewatch were announced as well. E3 2015 was an incredible conference for Sony even without FFVII and Shenmue.
Cyberpunk 2077 exclusive on the latest hardware and high-end PC. I don't mind.
@morganfell: And so does Microsoft so what’s your point? @IAmTylerDurden1: The Last Guardian was announced waaaayyyy before 2015 as it was originally intended to be a PS3 title that took too long and got reworked for PS4. Dreams was also announced first for PS3. World of Final Fantasy and Firewatch are both multiplatform.
They'll call them "console exclusives"
Why?? That not make sense?? It’s 3rd part title..they need something what coming on Xbox and Pc not PS4
I just have a gut feeling that they'll start by it. Just like 2013's Metal Gear.
I dont think it will happen, BUT ...Why would starting your conference with arguably one of the most anticipated showings at this years E3 be worse than throwing a brand new IP that no one knows about or worse maybe the Halo, GoW, Forza which everyone expects. Start strong and end strong.
Third party wise they will show that during the conference Cyberpunk 2077 Shadow of the Tomb Raider Remedy's P7 Battlefield V To name a few
The rumored Superman game is suppose to be shown on their stage also.
What if Microsoft locked up the Superman game as an exclusive?! :O If not, they really should - as Spiderman is exclusive to Playstation.
@No Way: THQ used to do the same with the WWF/WWE games. RAW was exclusive to Xbox and Smackdown! was exclusive to PlayStation. I actually enjoyed the model as RAW was created specifically for Xbox where it had the opportunity to take advantage of the Xbox hardware and features while Smackdown! did the same on PlayStation. Eventually though THQ gave in and created Smackdown! vs RAW which went multiplatform. When it did many things went out the window and the game became... A lot of copy and paste. 😕 I’d love to see a Superman title exclusive to Xbox for those reasons. The product could be created to specifically take advantage of Xbox One & One X.
There is no way MS secured exclusivity or even marketing for a rocksteady game. Every Batman game was marketed on PlayStation and even Arkham Knight debuted at PSX.
Hopefully they will show some must have exclusives for Xbox one
So no 2hr? Sad but at least a confirmed timeslot.
probably was 2 hours but they have decided to not show some stuff like maybe crackdown 3
Yer with the rumour of Crackdown 3 being delayed. Maybe they where going to show some stuff for it. But with it being delayed maybe they have cut what ever they where going to show of it.
You think they were going to dedicate 20 minutes to Crackdown alone?
@Septic When they do show crackdown 3 again it needs to be at least 10min, a 30 second trailer like last year just wont cut it. they absolutely have to show a huge chunk of multiplayer including the cloud destruction and maybe 4 player co-op campaign
@mark_parch, It needs to be with actual Xbox gamers sitting in their homes with an average connection. They can have them on Skype running on Xbox Live, not some closed LAN on stage. Then they can show that everything is in place and how perfect and flawless it operates.
"Decided to not show some stuff like maybe crackdown 3." That was uncalled for, that is a hit below the waistline 😉
@ morganfell You can't be that ignorant that you still think cloud computing is a fantasy... FFS... Epic bought Cloudgine, the tech that runs CD3 in the cloud.
Probably just in case something could be added last second
looks like I was wrong, Microsoft have confirmed crackdown 3 will be at e3. lets hope we finally get to see cloud destruction and that it actually looks good unlike last year. fingers crossed
Cool show me the games
Quality > Quantity
But will Xbox have quality?
Hell if I know
With Phil in charge probably not. At least Crackdown 3 should be great, when it finally arrives......
Xbox has plenty of quality it's just the moronic fanboys don't see it because your not invested and can't see beyond your stupidness of exclusives. There is plenty that Microsoft does just as good as Sony if not better. Quality does not just mean exclusives and because of that there is much Sony also needs to do to bring quality up because there infrastructure is no where near what Microsoft's is. So there we have a stupid tit for tat argument and the fact all three developers are always needing to do things better but the fanboys won't agree with that because they will say it's just Nintendo and Microsoft, that need to which is pathetic.
@zerocarnage Because a console quality isn’t judged on exclusives. Riiiight... With that logic, the industry doesn’t multiple consoles; hell the industry wouldn’t need consoles at all, if exclusives were “stupid”. And infrastructure? Like what? PSN need to shove a million and one ads in your face like XBL?
Yup, i agree. xbox got a big problem here, since their exclusives for the first half of 2018 are some sub 70 games. Also, don't forget the weak 2017 that was just disappointing...
How about both?
Let's hope they bring quality, and not smoke and mirrors. They need a big surprise IMO. Something that makes people say: "Finally! Xbox is back!"
It's a shame Crackdown 3 is delayed to 2019.
Quality? Lol how can you say that when Xbox has released Sea of Thieves and State of Decay 2 with horrible quality and content. Sorry but Xbox doesn't have quality or quantity.
The last night i hope gets shown
ori, the last night, ashen and the artful escape were my highlights form last year
Release dates for The Last Night, Ori 2, Ashen, Below, Crackdown 3 (even if it's getting pushed to Q1 2019), Forza Horizon 4... those should all be a reality at this years E3.
But they need to show more of what's coming for 2019 from them.
Yourll asked for this. Gonna stretch it out with devs and execs speeches
6,000 seconds spent listening to MS shill.
and 6 seconds reading your sh!t. why do you idiot go into a thread to pointlessly comment fanboy crap where your neither invested in that console or your just not bothered. oh I forgot you love to be an idiot at stick in the circles if hate around here..
Hope it's game related.
Who wants 2 hours of multiplat trailers??
Depends on the multiplats. If it's Call of Duty, Battlefield, Assassin's Creed and Destiny - hell no. If it's Cyberpunk, Kingdom Hearts, new game from Rocksteady and maybe a new Bioshock game hell yeah I want to see that.
@I_am_Batman Sony has marketing for Call of Duty and Destiny so both of those will be at their conference...
I dunno. Kind of hoping they'd spend some time showing us the new schemes they have come up with to milk money out of the players. I think Crackdown is taking so long since they need to find a way to charge players for each building that is destroyed. You know, to cover those cloud sever costs.
so lonh as the games are good and they are something new i dont mind. Really you bunch of nitwits need to get off this stage your on of thinking it matters that you keep saying the same stupid bull crap over and over, it got boring a while ago.. The broken record keeps going on n on n on n on n on and never stops. Like children in a sweet shop saying to the parents please can I have one mommy, over and over again untill it's time to get told to shut the F-UP.
I do, The only reason I watch E3 coverage is to hear about games... Why wouldnt people want to hear about games at E3?
I feel bad for this dude, his tenure at xbox has been a colossal failure
I wouldn't feel bad, he is a multi millionaire who has failed upwards.
@georgenancy " Phil " bad 4 Phil Spencer? ha. Not even for 1 sec. He signed up for this, and has been apart of the Xbox platforms demise. Going back as far as Last Gen, Phil's tenure with Microsoft & the now closed defunct Xbox Division.
Meanwhile, in reality, the Xbox division was under the windows division, so he needed to report to Terry Myerson who never saw gaming as important. It was Terry who didn't invest in the Xbox brand like Phil wanted, but with Nadella's recent reorganization of MS and the implementation of a gaming division with Spencer at the helm things are already changing. Besides, it doesn't take a genius ti see that Phil wouldn't have been promoted if he was responsible for "killing the Xbox", lol.
Over 100 minutes of not-exclusives and talking heads, yay!
another with a very very similar joke, you guys must love to share them because you can't say anything else, its all you say just in a different way every million or so times.
100 minutes For what?
Just like last years E3 with; Xbox realese exclusive, first on xbox exclusive, xbox exclusive exclusive, blablabla😉
Isnt that what we are waiting to hear?
I used to think longer conferences would be better. But a couple years ago, Sony changed up it's format, and made them only a hour or a little longer, and they were much more entertaining. When you remove all the filler, PR talk, extended trailers which aren't all that exciting because they're for regular staple games like COD which many don't care to see, it's just not that much fun, and you can spend more time just waiting for stuff you aren't interested in to finish, and hoping the next thing they show is exciting. The past couple E3 showings with MS, I spent more time browsing the net during the trailers I wasn't interested in. I can stomach a 3-5 minutes trailer for something I'm not interested in, but not when they're much longer, or have a bunch of them in succession.
Didnt he say earlier that it will be 2 to 2.5 hrs long?
I believe they said they have up to 2hrs. But things get cut, speeches get quicker etc.
Games get cancelled and delayed...
