E3 Xbox games list left wanting

Following the 90 minute presentation for Microsoft I am left disappointed at the lack of new titles but none the less here is the list of shown games from the Microsoft conference.

Where was the megaton third party exclusive?

Kingthrash3602508d ago

Lol I had the same thought.
All games announced were old news except some indies..which looked great. But I truly was uunimpressed with was better than last year...though anything is better than last year.

Eonjay2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

I thought the conference was okay. But it would have been MUCH better if we didn't know about 80% of the content shown.

Crackdown, Fable, Forza, Halo 5, Mastercheif Collection were all known before Titanfall released. Even Tomb Raider, COD, and Unity were known before hand. Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus alpha was the only real surprise and even that was hinted at. It kinda feels spoiled.

ZodTheRipper2508d ago

My biggest question was, where is Quantum Break and Halo 5 gameplay? Should people get excited over already announced multiplats at E3?

NewMonday2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )


as far as megaton games last year was much better

they had Titanfall, Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, Dead Rising 3, Forza 5, Killer Instinct

this year they couldn't even match half of that.


Quantum Break gameplay is at Gamescom

LordMaim2508d ago

There was a lot of CG trailers, but not much for this year announced other than the Halo collection. All of the interesting thing was in the "2015 and beyond" section, according to Spencer. Crackdown looks like it will be interesting. Where was Quantum Break though? And no Halo 5 demo? Also, did they swap out Spielberg for Ridley Scott on Halo?

georgeenoob2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

Looks like the Sony camp is working hard to overshadow the amount of amazing titles ahead for Xbox One. So many AAAs coming it's not even funny.

For 2014 alone there's:
Halo MC Collection
Forza Horizon 2
Sunset Overdrive

2015 and beyond:
Crackdown 3
Phantom Dust
Fable Legends
Quantum Break
Halo 5

That's not even taking into account [email protected]

I wonder how PS4's list will compare.

ramiuk12508d ago

nothing made me feel like i was missing out though,which is what the event should of done.
i liked the child of light type game and the division again,nothing else .
but nothing made me want the console

ZodTheRipper2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

I laughed waaay to hard at your comment ahahah :D
You still got your PS3 bro!

Edit: Oh man why the stealth edit? His original comment looked kinda like this:
"People's expectations where simply too high."

Bnet3432508d ago

I thought it was a great conference. B+. Sunset Overdrive, Halo, and Forza Horizon 2 for this year is great plus all the multiplatform games. What exactly do you guys want? Games that will come out in 4 years?

pandaboy2508d ago

oh georgee, you're so fun-ny, you're like a hanky when my nose is run-ny...

arinaborina2508d ago

there were new AAA games, Phantom Dust, Scalebound form platnimum games and also Crackdown 3!

GarrusVakarian2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

Lol @ Georgeenoob not being able to accept other peoples opinions and putting things into lists in order to score points....pathetic.

There was too much focus on multiplats/exclusive DLC, too many CG trailers, nowhere near as many megatons as people were expecting (im guessing you included), no *OMG, CROWD GOES CRAZY* moments. It was just a 'good' conference.

avengers19782508d ago

@georgenoob and your trying way to hard to make it like there was anything amaZing announced, no gameplay for any games on your list for 2015 and beyond, most was 3rd party, again they spent to much money on 3rd party exclusive content, fact is they really didn't show anything that wasn't already known about. No megaton announcements, no surprises, and hardly any gameplay.

I give them a B, they did show some indies, they stayed focused on games.

TheBlackSmoke2508d ago

@georgenoob is very easily pleased, Basically everygame is AAA to him. lol

Microsoft were average just like most of their game offering's, not that im expecting much more from sony either. It's still too early in next gen to see megaton reveals.

All im seeing is PC versions of PS3/360 style games on next gen. Sunset overdrive looks like the most try hard to be different but generic in every way dudebro shooter i've seen in a very long time.

ziggurcat2508d ago

@ georgeenoob:

way to change your original comment of, "people had too high expectations" (the irony of that being that you, among others, had the highest of expectations out of anyone around here), and turn it into anti-sony rant. you just can't admit that you were disappointed by their presentation, can you... ?

and i'm pretty sure you don't even known what AAA means.

"That's not even taking into account [email protected]"

but i thought indies were just cellphone games? or do they only count when it's MS?

styferion2508d ago


"That's not even taking into account [email protected]"

lol, like the guys bashing PS "indiestation" gonna take indie into accounts, .

OT: I'm disappointed not because the game announced, but because there's no Halo 5 or QB gameplay shown.

DevilOgreFish2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )


as far as megaton games last year was much better

they had Titanfall, Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, Dead Rising 3, Forza 5, Killer Instinct

this year they couldn't even match half of that."

Microsoft showed 5 new games, on top of what was already announced.

(excluding Indie lineup)

Forza horizon 2 (coming in 5 months)
Ori and the blind forest (this fall)
Crackdown 3 (tba)
Phantom Dust (tba)
Scalebound (tba)

AceBlazer132508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

Was bound to happen eventually, insiders ruined E3 hopefully Sony and Nintendo has more under wrapped stuff.

I won't say it was bad but when the best parts of your conference are mostly multiplat then yh that is kinda a problem.

Kingthrash3602508d ago

Forza h was already announced pre e3...crackdown was no surprise because it was already confirmed but I'll count it because it was the first I've seen of it. The other 3 were new to me.
Also why exclude the indies...they, besides halo, were the best of the Xbox conference imo. Indies are games and they count.

Probably Platinum Games new game

BLow2508d ago

Yes, you are correct sir. That was the megaton. I heard a rumor about it and it actually came true.

Rainbowcookie2508d ago

Only game people didn't know about is scalebound. Crackdown 3 was teased lastyear already with the logo on the back at E3 2013. Not showing gameplay will get them if Sony shows uncharted. They shouldn't have shown Sunset overdrive before E3 . Halo collection looks like good value.

ziggurcat2507d ago


i wouldn't even necessarily call that a megaton as it's not the first time they've made a MS exclusive title...

TheFallenAngel2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

Really theres nothing really coming to xbone. I hope Sony can show some good games because the press conference was meh. First on Xbox is not a megaton ms.. Oh and no Gears tease? Are you kidding me?

Evilsnuggle2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

I said this yesterday that Microsoft would not have a bunch of first party exclusives. That show was a huge disappointment . Microsoft just showed a bunch of multi platform games that will be inferior version on xbone Juan not impressed . Microsoft had a better E3 last year with titanfall and Ryse looked amazing at last years E3.

Not impressed the bar is set low for SONY to beat. I was wait for the dagger of death from Microsoft and it never happened . Just more timed executive . I feel sorry for the xbone fans

That game from platinum games looks lame . I loved phantom dust on xbox but It was a Japanese develop game I hope Microsoft don't Americanize it .

Yesterday comment "lets look at this logically . Last year microsoft thought they would beat SONY. Last gen microsoft was in close to PS3 worldwide sales and 360 out sold PS3 in the USA. Microsoft did this without alot of first party executive games . microsoft did this with timed executive and timed dlcs . Fast forward 6 months SONY is beating the tar of xbone. microsoft has drop every idea it had and now is coping every thing that SONY has done. Now the point last gen microsoft has said first party executive are not important and came close to beating PS3 without alot of first party executive . It takes years to develop game microsoft just started coping every thing that SONY has done in the last few months . I really doubt that microsoft has that many games in develop . But SONY does that's how PS3 out sold 360 with first party executive games "

Aceman182508d ago

i thought it was a good presser i'd give it a solid B games from beginning to end.

Aceman182508d ago

really i thought it was a good presser, and i get mad disagrees? hahaha people here make me laugh or is it that i didnt give it the magically A+++++? which is it?

URNightmare2508d ago

How could they fck this up?? Unbelievable.

harrisk9542508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )


I THINK that it was the Platinum Games reveal of Scalebound... Bayonetta with dinosaurs/dragons/monsters?

Not enough to get an XB1 for me, but I really did like what I saw regarding Sunset Overdrive and Project Spark, though!

Magicite2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

For xbox fans conference was great.
But what about people who are still planning to buy X1?
I dont think there were must-have exclusive games (megatons).

P.S. Lets just wait for next E3, right?

LackTrue4K2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

The show was ok, I'm just glad they didn't talk about

"the power of the clouds"

.....or else, the show would of been terrible!!!

I really really wanted to see some gears of war! That game alone would make me interested in an XboxOne.

AngelicIceDiamond2508d ago

I was thinking the same thing. Maybe it was that Platinum Games Ip.

imdaboss12508d ago

crackdown was horrible why do people still want it? halo nothing but remakes..there no games to get excited about at all ..m$ failed again

XiNarutoUzumaki2508d ago

This Conference was way overhyped

Scalebound Saved this conference imo

GarrusVakarian2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

Really? A CG trailer for a game that looks like the main character is a rip-off of Dante from DMC. Didn't interest me at all. Sorry MS.

Aceman182508d ago

i thought the same thing about that character lol, i'm not sure what to make of that game.

Pinkdolphinyfg2508d ago

Guy with a sword>>>> Dmc rip off cx

ZodTheRipper2508d ago

Yes, it felt like the conference was aimed at the dudebro stereotype with big buzzwords and over the top presentation. I hope Sony has waaay more exciting stuff to show, otherwise this years E3 is muchos 'meh'.

At the end I actually was happy to not have wasted money on a Xbox because all the stuff I care about is available on PS4 as well xD

NewMonday2508d ago

wish they got Vanquish instead

ramiuk12508d ago

i thought it was DMC sequel at first.
the confrence was way too full of CG trailers and scripted gameplay.

where was quantum break gameplay?

nothing made me want the console and i would be pretty pissed if i had bought one as nothing imo coming out thats console specific

torchic2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

Phil Spencer definitely (and the hardcore Xbox fans) overhyped it. he should have just emphasised the point of this E3 conference being a starting block for Microsoft after last year's horror show, rather than making it seem like the E3 to end all E3s.

if you look at it from that standpoint it was good.

ZodTheRipper2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

Yep, it wasn't really bad. It just felt like they are trying too hard to be likeable. They pretty much went the same route Sony went LAST YEAR, only that people excepted them to be AHEAD of them THIS YEAR already. Now Sony is probably three steps ahead already judging by all the rumored megatons... so I can't wait to see how this unfolds in just a few hours.

Mr-Dude2508d ago

Overhyped due to all the insider articles composed from a couple of tweets... and neogaf

Number-Nine2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

Another poor showing by MS. Nothing had me wanting to get an Xbox. Some exclusives sprinkled in but nothing that looked great. Most of the big titles coming to different platforms.

And funny how much a difference a year makes. Virtually no Kinect BS.

They showed games which is always great, but nothing that left me salivating.

Grade: C-

ricochetmg2508d ago

That was the conference we asked for and we got it.B+

Number-Nine2508d ago (Edited 2508d ago )

They pretty much showed off game you knew about. I've stayed away from spoilers so I pretty much have little idea what's coming out, and most of the stuff wasn't exciting or new.

What game makes you want to get an Xbox?
-One of the indie exclusives? No.
-Milked out Halo 5? No. Although the Chief collection for $60 is pretty sweet.
-Sunset Overdrive? Eh, didn't look that great to me.
-Witcher, Division, Evolve, Assassin's Creed, looked great, but they are all multiplatform.
-Phantom Dust looked cool, but only a trailer.

ricochetmg2508d ago

We asked for games and they gave us games to tear them apart would not be fair. Although the exclusive DLc/Beta content is so Ms but they gave us a a lot of content. What more could we asked for be fair guys do you recall last year. We asked for improvement and we got it.

Synthax2508d ago

Everything right with that comment.

ukchi3f2508d ago

It was awful way too much CG not enough gameplay or dates to titles
