"With no new IPs on the horizon, the PS4 will continue being the runaway success of the generation, and Microsoft will keep hemorrhaging its loyal fans until they can do something about it. So no, Microsoft have not ‘won’ E3 2018. Not by a very long stretch. Not when the same complaints that we’ve repeated for the past 4 years are still just as relevant now. Give us games – then we’ll talk." Ben Hutchings - Gamer Professionals.
Touche *Sips tea*
To me, giving the win to Microsoft is like giving them credit for basically posting everyone else's work. I do give them credit for Forza and Gears as I think those were highlights. Especially Gears as I'm not even a Gears fan and I thought that looked great.
“No, Microsoft Did Not ‘Win’ E3 2018 – Their Conference Was a Massive Let Down“
I wouldn’t say their conference was a massive let down. I though it was one of their best.
They need more games outside of Halo, Gears, and Forza though. Hopefully the studios the acquired will help fill in the gap. I’m sure Playground games are working on a new Fable game as we speak.
Their conference was a step forward by admitting the need for, and their commitment to 1st party now.
But overall it did nothing to sell their cinference.
It wasn’t a let down for gamers in general since a lot of things that many people can appreciate got unveiled.
It wasn’t a let down for some devoted Xbox gamers. However if you don’t have an Xbox console this conference didn’t do much to persuade you to get one over a PS4.
