Phil Spencer posted about the preparation for tomorrow's MIcrosoft Conference, stating: "Just wrapped our final #XboxE3 rehearsal. Feeling great about the show. Excited to world premiere 15 games tomorrow and much, much more #E32018"
I'm sure he said this last year and most of them were 3rd party or Indie games. I'm sure Cyberpunk 2077, Remedy's P7 game and maybe Rocksteady's new game will all be revealed. Halo, Gears of War, Fable. Forza Horizon...there's about 7 games there. Splinter Cell, Just Cause 4, Perfect Dark, the other rumoured Gears of War game.
Last year he said they had something like 42 games to show, with 20 of them being "console launch exclusive". It turns out that yeah, most of them were 3rd party or indie, or timed-exclusive. They could have a lot of amazing reveals though, so I'm excited to watch. Like last year they had Metro Exodus, which looked amazing - so if they exceed that which it looks like they're going to, I will consider it a show worth watching.
This year my expectations are set to very low after last year's disappointing E3. Third party games or first party games, I want to have mostly good showings on the MS stage.
I hope they have a good show, I really do. They need to announce something truly exciting and follow through with it. I like my Xbox One X, but the entire platform feels really generic and has for most of this generation, anyone interested should want them to do better.
"anyone interested should want them to do better." Exactly. They need to improve on their games. Their services are good, their hardware (Xbox One X) is good, now bring on the games. Hopefully they'll do much better with the software for the whole next generation.
I already know what they are going to say this time again: Hello gamers! Are you ready? Xbox has always listened to gamers that's why we made the most powerful console. Hell ya! (Crowd will go berserk here) We've got largest-ever catalogue of backward compatibility games. We've made games as rental. We've had gazillion bullets fired this year. Billion people logged in. And today will be all about games that's why we've brought 15 new world premiere trailers. Enjoy the show. (After the trailers...) Xbox has always been the first place for great looking games. (Then they'll either show Halo or Gears or Forza trailer... Crackdown will be missing in action) Aaron: So how was the show???? (Crowd goes berserk again) Thanks for coming. But wait we have one more thing to show... (Crowd goes berserk again) (Some third party game will be shown which will be "console exclusive" for 3/6/9/12 months which they will not tell or be clear about, until the hagglings start on Twitter) Thank you once again. (Montage video of all the games shown will play on the screen as ppl start walking out) ------- Did I miss something else? Add in please. ;-)
42 games were obviously smaller games or games that were already on PC. No way they were gonna be AAA 3rd or 1st party games, sure a few were. 15 games downsizing it from 42 is telling its mainly gonna be AAA's. We know Battlefield V is one of them so that's 14, Halo Infinite, Gears Spin off, Forza, Crackdown (Pretty sure Crackdown's gonna be there) so that's 10 games confirmed. Cyber Punk is a big one so that leaves 9 games. Out of those 9 games left one of them has to be a new Ip, at least 1 new ip. If we're lucky 2 but I don't wanna get ahead of myself. Mech Assault, Fable IV and Perfect Dark are nearly pipe dreams games imo.
he said world premiere, not exclusives.
What bothers me is MS could have put more resources behind games like State of Decay and Sea of Theives and made them atleast AA quality games. I'm guessing this will be the same. Indies galore and maybe some that have potential but will never fully be realized. It's like Scalebound- tons of potential but cut short. MS just doesn't seem to want to invest. I'm gonna just stay pessimistic here. I mean if they drop something worthwhile then great but I'm only watching for 3rd party games I can play on PS4.
i fully agree, they lacked bigtime and the release of those games in the condition they where in also worries me but we will now see if they turn this ship around or just stay in last place and be happy with that. its a big day tomorrow
I don`t why all the hate for State of Decay 2. The game is a lot of fun and runs great. And after the 25 gigs of patches it runs even better. Haven`t played Sea of Theives
exactly. and scalebound is another PR disaster for them. MS comes to an e3 to announce a game like scalebound. i was impressed when i first saw it. i thought MS was finally starting to "get it" and maybe i'll be buying an xbox to play this game.......then, they cancel it. MS needs a plan to bring great exclusives to their console - if for no other reason than to show some love to those people who have purchased their hardware. even if they have some cool announcements at their conference - after scalebound, i'm skeptical that the games will actually even get an eventual release.
You dont take a break being negative I see🙄
I would not call it negative pointing out lies I would call it negative to lie';'
I would not call it negative pointing out lies, 'I would call it negative to lie'
@-Foxtrot You´re nervous Fox. Chill out little fella. It will be over in a few hours. Lol.
Nervous about what? No actual exclusives?
Also, Dying Light 2.
As most astute people have pointed out, that means absolutely nothing. No mention of exclusives at all and a lot of them could be indies. (not that there's anything wrong with indies, I love them, but xbone desperately needs AAA exclusives)
15 games and most of them being indies? That's your prediction, that's a terrible prediction because MS would get boo'd off the stage if 15 of those games were indies.
@bouzebbal literally said nothing about exclusives lol, and people are complaining
The bohemia interactive xbox game is the one I'm kinda psyched about. Hoping it's a tactical sim like arma which is my cup of tea!
Games confirmed so far These are exclusive... Halo 6 Gears of War 5 Forza Horizon 4 Crackdown Age of Empires 4 3rd party multiplat games shown known Battlefield V Rage 2 Destiny 2 crap Rumors likely shown... JRPG...Dragon Quest? New Fable New Bioshock New Splinter Cell That's 12 and not excited yet. They could show Cyberpunk 2077, but doesn't matter because it has nothing to do with Microsoft. I forgot about Remedy's P7 and Perfect Dark. There are 15 games and the best case scenario...that is not saving them. If they don't have at least 1 new IP that looks amazing that comes out of nowhere, they are done....Sega done.
Those games are not exclusive. They appear on PC.
world premiere meaning third party games. Unless he said windows 10 & xbox exclusives premiere it would have been exciting.
These world premieres are just first time showed trailers of games that are going to be either everywhere or almost everywhere, same thing happened last year
I don't care whether a game is exclusive or multiplat, I just like good games. I really don't care at what conference a game gets shown.
THAT is what you say when your platform of choice have no exclusive to offer LOL
@badz149 Damn, don't do 'em like that lol
@badz149 Or that's what you say when you own all platforms LOL
@badz149 Its really a glass cannon, its exciting cause because seeing new games is always fun, but then you realize that most of those could also be played on PS4. None the less, its exciting to watch, just the substance isn't all that relevant to the success of the One
@badz149 Let's see...I only own a PS4, PS3 and gaming PC...so which of those platforms are you referring to? I'm just saying that I enjoy seeing good games regardless of whether they're multiplats or exclusives.
@starchild Stating that you dont care if a game is exclusive or not means that multiplatform games are just as important to you as exclusive games.
@badz, i own both the pro and the X. And I agree with starchild.
@badz, He is a PlayStation and PC gamer like me... He has all the choices in the world.
Badz - I, prolly like most, own both the XB1 and PS4.. I can play whatever I want. It doesn't matter where I get to play my games. Fact is, both consoles have exclusives; whether you want to acknowledge them or not. Kirby - I would agree with that statement. Some of the best games are multiplatform. Exclusives ONLY matter to those who own one system; but, more so for the console makers. If they are fine without, so be it. I, as a gamer, could care less if it's exclusive or multiplatform.
Badz Is a mindless drone. Exclusives are anti consumer. You've been programmed well by the big corps to believe a game could only be made because of the console it's on and not because of the devs.... smh
Exactly. If he clarified even 7 Windows/Xbox games that would be great but to simply say 15 games means nothing.
So 15 games hes showing off mean nothing even if you have no clue of what they are? I dunno if you're reaching, being a fanboy or what.
15 games we haven't seen before is more than nothing. Regardless of if they're exclusive or not. We.may know about some of them, but haven't seen any footage yet. All in all, worth watching regardless.of console preference because a good number of those games are likely going to be on other platforms
if he said that only xbox fanboys will watch the conference, they are doing this to increase viewership to show a good face to the investors.
I don't see why it matters, you're just twisting things. World premier meaning never before seen games or trailers.
I'm just hoping for a surprise or two.
They got nothing to lose. Hope Phil Spencer ain't trolling. That's alot of games.
It depends what he means by world premiere. it could be world premiere gameplay on ori for example or world premiere of wrecking zone ( crackdown 3 multiplayer ) or world premiere of the last night gameplay. i'm still only expecting halo, gears and forza then maybe 2 new exclusives at the most, maybe something from capcom
The lower number of games being touted makes me more optimistic that I won’t see cartoon indie after indie after indie after indie....after indie....after indie.
Yeah last year they showed like 40 games or something. With 15 I think we will be seeing more big games Edit: actually it's just 15 world premieres, we'll be seeing a lot more than just 15 games
Well, I would honestly expect more than 15 games announced. The tweet just says there's 15 world premieres. edit: so I read it as out of the X amount of games they have planned tomorrow, 15 of them are world premieres.
Wonder how long they'll spend on each game. Conference is just under an hour, and they'll want to talk about stuff like alway. I don't mind sizzle reels for smaller games, but would like them to spend a decent amount of time showing the good stuff...with as little awkward staged talking to discuss it like we saw at ea's conference
@rainslacker Didn't they say it's 100 minutes from their last run?
Are most of them indie games? If so you can keep it to yourself.
AAA games by far disappoint me more than well known Indies to have released lately... my opinion of course
And most of them will be multiplatforms or time exclusives.
All of which will come out in the next 20 years on the Xbox Two, Xbox Three, and Xbox Four. Or maybe they'll mess those numbers up too. Maybe we can get a console name that doesn't have a number in it? 😉
Here we go again 😂😂😂
every year same old story for ms 😂
Exactly last year they said 42 games let's see what they got this time maybe they finally hit the target.
How many games cancelled before next E3?
At least 1 ambitious game maybe 2 , the rest will come out and the only game people will generally like is Forza and maybe an indie or 2 the rest will be decent to below average games that look to have promise but fail to deliver AAA quality like the entire generation . Just talking crap but I wouldn’t be surprised if I was right .
All Eyes On Xbox Save everything for the day of E3. Thank you Phil Spencer!
Guarantee crapgamer is wetting himself from this. At least it's straight from Phil Spencer's mouth so that's good news.
"Astronomicaly humongous pre-E3 announcement by Grand Daddy Phil. Sony fans are in tears" - CrapGamer
salmonade Lol those are his exact words hahaha. Well it's good to see some good hype for him and the Xbox community, they kinda feel how alot of PS3 owners felt last gen when the media and Xbox fans had their pitch forks out for every Doom and gloom article they made for PS3.
All eyes on them, because they have the most to prove. I don't know how much longer they can hold out if they keep having the disappointments that they do every year. Having the most powerful console to play multiplats can only carry them so far, and in the next couple of years they may not even be able to hold that title.
Who the hell is Crapgamer?
Go on YouTube and check him out lol. But be warned, your ears may bleed from the stupidity you hear.
World premiere 15 online games exclusive deal.
He always says that but most are indie stuff. Not knocking indies of course. But we have heard this before.
