The After Thought on E3 Microsoft Press Conference

Kuma Wrote: Let’s be clear here that someone made up for their mistakes at last year E3. This time around we the gamers actually got a nice game conference and this came from Microsoft which shocked even the likes of me. I didn’t go into the Xbox conference with high hopes, but what they showcase made me happy and now that the Xbox One is at an affordable price, it is that much sweeter. Enjoy this recap of today’s conference on Microsoft.

They get an E for effort was okay, too much CGI trailers and many multiplatform games. Nothing mindblowing but there were certainly some solid announcements.

SavageKuma3152d ago

There indi game selection wow'd me the most to be honest, but that Sunset Overdrive and Fable Legends won me over. They did a lot better than last year. Thanks for checking out the post.

"They did a lot better than last year." - like that was ever going to be difficult!

PSN-JeRzYzFyNeSt3152d ago

they re indie collection looked like trash compared to Sony.s

SuperBlunt3152d ago

very much so i was impressed myself. now fanboys can stop crap talking indies

Kingthrash3603152d ago

IMO thee games were more blockbuster last year. Tf ryse halo5 quantum break...forza5 ..this year halo5 cg crackdown some nice was a great show but nothing making me want a console from them.

choujij3152d ago (Edited 3152d ago )

I was expecting to be dazzled, but instead (with the exception of a few titles), we were shown stuff we've seen before and lots of pretty CGI trailers. Overall, pretty disappointed. Maybe next year, Xbox. In the meantime, sit tight on those store shelves.

"too much CGI trailers and many multiplatform games."

Lol what? Oh you mean CGI trailers for brand new announced games that still in early stages of development? Riiight think about it.

"many multiplatform games."

I can say the exact same thing about Sony.

xKugo3152d ago (Edited 3152d ago )

LOL, they have exactly THREE new unannounced games shown at their conference, out of $hit ton CGI trailers they showed. How that can be considered anything except to much CGI is beyond me.

Moreover most of the content they showed was multi-platform, while Sony focused on things exclusive for their console. Doesn't help either that most of what Microsoft talked about stuff we already knew going into the show. What happened to also those surprises and new IPs you guys were promised. Lmao, utterly MIA.

Good job Microsoft, yet another disappointing E3. You're the best at it...

RAWSTA3152d ago

Sony TV TV TV and numbers! Zzzz

"Moreover most of the content they showed was multi-platform, while Sony focused on things exclusive for their console"

Sure they did. Destiny,Batman Arkham Knight, Battlefield Hardline,Mortal Kombat X, MGS V and GTA 5 are all multiplatform. Even Dead Island 2 is multiplatform I think

Teknosaur3152d ago

Atleast they showed us games this time. I try not to get too excited by looking at footage of a game. I like to play games but Im not much for watching them unless I am trying to learn something new from someone who is really good. I was more excited than normal this year though because they finally understood why people buy gaming consoles

My review quick MS ........................DULL. only good games i've seen Conker , Sunset overdrive that's not saying much . Sony had the show once again IMO

RAWSTA3152d ago

There is no conked just shows you didn't watch it. Conked is features in project sparks!

beerzombie3152d ago

Compared to the "shity" free "Ill rip you off" games that Sony showed.
Ms brought the games that mattered this year and a 1000 indie games is not what I call wining anything from Sony.

Retroman3152d ago

@ rawsta

duh!!! i know conker in project sparks. if you read my comment correctly you would known that and seen the show. i also said only (good games) imo was conker/ sunset overdrive.

Vegamyster3152d ago (Edited 3152d ago )

Can't say i saw anything "mindblowing" from anyone, lots of good stuff no matter where you go in the end.

ZodTheRipper3152d ago (Edited 3152d ago )

So what's mindblowing for you? An exclusive next-gen spiritual successor to one of the best RPG's ever made is the definition of mindblowing to me, and apparently not only to me if you take a look at these reactions on GAF

Other than that I agree, there was nothing else "mindblowing" this year. Only Zelda U would be when Nintendo announces it in the next few days.

Vegamyster3152d ago (Edited 3152d ago )


I don't really get hyped off of CG trailers, i was hoping to see gameplay similar to the leaked gif snippets instead, i have no doubt the game will be good i just want to see more before hyping myself.

SuperBlunt3152d ago

very solid show by ms. Hopefully the future stays bright for xbox and its owners/future owners. tonight validated my comfort in buying a ps4 so i hope you guys feel the same way

0P-Tigrex3152d ago (Edited 3152d ago )

Microsoft did a better job at presenting what they have.. Sony's cheap jabs and awkward pacing and obnoxious presenters and boring Middle made it a very mediocre E3 for them. I truly hope they learned from this.

KwietStorm_BLM3152d ago

lol what has happened to you gamers? I can't even understand anymore.

0P-Tigrex3152d ago (Edited 3152d ago )

After looking at it from the outside... Microsoft did a better job.. I actually cringed and *sighed* during Sony's conference and i'm a diehard PS fan. idk. Just my opinion. If i was a NEW gamer.. i'd go with Microsoft just out of presentation alone.

beerzombie3152d ago

They are haters now Sony gamers and these young children do not like games at all they do is complain about games. If you go to any site the same thing happens including sports or movies sites the same type of haters say the same thing: everything sucks to them.

TOTSUKO3152d ago

Since when does having a better presentation result to good games?

I admit Sony's conference was not the most epic presentation but they showed just as much good or even better exclusives after the fact Microsoft had the most to prove on showing games.

Microsoft had good games too but I felt most of the xbox exclusives were too cartoonish. I don't mind it but it seemed most of their exclusives were like that.

SavageKuma3152d ago

Honestly Sony felt lacking and not many exclusives coming out this year compared to the XOne. Either way I was impressed by MS a lot only talking about their games and not to heavily on the civilian side of their system.

no_more_heroes3152d ago

When people say MS did bad last year, what you you really mean?

Are you referring to E3 2013, or MS's XB1 reveal before that?

KwietStorm_BLM3152d ago

People keep confusing the reveal with E3, or they're just holding onto sour grapes about the DRM, and not acknowledging that their actual stage show at E3 last year was good.

vega2753152d ago

Because if they keep using the reveal as the e3 show for last year then MS would have won last year too. Since all they announced was games which is what E3 is suppose to be about.

KwietStorm_BLM3152d ago


What do you mean won? And what do you mean "too"? lol why do you all keep feeding into this crap?

cityboy1003152d ago

I have both systems and its good to see MS is on the right track. But its just a little odd that MS got shot down last year and sony is Turning around doing the same thing with the games making u go Digital if you want to play the beta and extra content. No one says anything but if MS did this the whole world is coming to an end. I like ps 4 but the big games are still a year or 2 years away. Still glad that both consoles are doing well.

KingDustero3152d ago

They aren't forcing anyone to go digital. What beta are you referring to? Destiny's is available to anyone who preorders the game by any means. If you want the beta early and extra content you have to get the game on a PS console and that's it.
