Microsoft Just Had its Best E3 Ever

Alex S. from Link-Cable writes: "Well that was pretty incredible. At their E3 2018 showcase Microsoft lifted the curtain on 50 games for the Xbox One which range from small indie titles to major AAA releases but all of which help cement the opinion that the Xbox One is the best play to play all different types of games. This presentation was a tour de force for Microsoft and their console and should not only set them up well for the rest of the year but help get any gamers on the fence jumping over to the Xbox side of things. In short, this was the best E3 Microsoft ever put together."

Ever? Damn people have a short memory span..

Acquiring and opening up a studio for bigger and better games in context is big for MS. Considering new studio investment was the thing MS was in absolute dire need of. I personally wouldn't say best ever. But a very necessary conference indeed.

It’s not like they added some massive sudios, ninja theory was the only one worth mentioning.

Playground was also really good for them to finally lock down, they have a lot of talent there. The other 3 are more of a wait and see approach but I trust that Ninja and Playground will deliver the goods.

But they were already only making Xbox exclsuive games, so it's nothing new.

If anyone thinks this Microsoft E3 conference was their best they certainly have very low expectations for Microsoft and it's console. The only thing interesting was the third party announcements. Getting bored with Gears, and Halo, Forza is Forza, not that exciting. Buying studios is great but 4 of th 5 already only developed games for Microsoft. They had a flashy stage, not a fan of. Said they are the best at everything as usual, which I think is a mistake and not true. Wasn't a terrible conference but far far away from being mind blowing.

@ 2pacalypsenow

Playground is building a new dev team from the ground up, how is that not new?

Not best E3 Ever but a good one

It's only it's best when it's not judged on it's own merits, but rather compared to most of the piss poor showings they've had in recent years.

AcidDvl154d ago

Keep in mind that this 'amazing' E3 show was 90% showing other publishers work.

Xb1ps4154d ago

Oh... so we no longer play other publishers games? So you plan on playing nothing else until the next ps exclusive launches?

AcidDvl154d ago

Of course we play.

But it's redundant who presents them.

Microsoft banked on other people's work. Nothing new I guess.

goldwyncq154d ago

They still announced more new exclusives than Sony this year.

AcidDvl154d ago


Ghost of Tsushima, Death Stranding, Spider-man and The Last of Us Part II shits on any exclusive that Microsoft showed.

Quality > Quantity

In which case, Sony has both.

Oh.. got it.. it’s redundant to show 90% of the games we will be playing, with Sony having one extra exclusive they just blew everyone and everything out of the water even if they don’t have release dates..

AcidDvl154d ago

Playstation owners will be play the games as well.
So it's 100% redundant who shows what.

I'm not sure about ever, but it's the best conference of this year IMO.
