A couple of days ago, Microsoft officially unveiled its upcoming XO19 event in London, and it appears that it's going to be a big one, according to Aaron Greenberg.
I’ll believe it when I see it.
Should always be the way. And money shouldn't have to be paid upfront.
You gotta spend $ to make $. They don't put on the show for free. There is the cost of the venue, permits, broadcasting as well as all the labor involved. So yeah... people got to get paid to put on this show. Some they can pay after but others get paid up front.
They said the same thing last year. They think newly adding a old game to a rental service will generate hype....or at least they are trying to make it seem as such
admission fees go to charity
@Kingthrash360 "They think newly adding a old game to a rental service will generate hype....or at least they are trying to make it seem as such" Well, we saw a lot of disappointed PC gamers that wouldn´t be able to play Devi... er... an old game on a "rental service" BTW, we miss you around https://n4g.com/news/228750...
Disappointment and hype are 2 different categories. Especially at a show.....I mean are people hype about potential new old games for ANY rental service? That's not hype....hype would be announcing new AAAips that will push gaming entertainment forward. I work too much to come around nowdays...so I jump in while on the toilet every now and then
@Kingthrash360 "I mean are people hype about potential new old games for ANY rental service? That's not hype....hype would be announcing new AAAips that will push gaming entertainment forward." Well, i think MOST gamers would be more excited/hyped to be allowed to play Devil May Cry 5, Metro Exodus, The Outer Worlds and Gears 5 for a few bucks, instead of pay full price for just a game like Death Stranding. But that´s just my two cents. "That's not hype....hype would be announcing new AAAips that will push gaming entertainment forward." Can´t argue with that. That said, you know full well that there´s not just one, but three new AAA IPs in development by Playground (I could be wrong if it turns out to be Fable), RARE and The Initiative which makes your narrative pointless.
@darthv72: You realize I was talking about per-orders, right? That anything MS shows off - likely CG concept trailers - shouldn't be taken as a "console-seller!" let alone good or even something that wont be canceled, as is always the sad case with fan camp and "their" console. Though if MS is charging for a preview event, that's on them and anyone who pays. More so if MS pulls any Kinect silver poncho, use the audience in a commercial, level crap. @Obscure_Observer: Wow, paying to play games you've either already played or something new in a crowded venue you'll have limited time on. Joy...
There will most likely be New games added to GamesPass, Maybe a new studio acquisition or 2 a final trailer for Ori which is all good. But I doubt they will have any jaw dropping news that no one saw coming.
Gamepass is the mai' reason I still own an xone. It's a very good deal but I wonder how long they can sustain that business model at that price though.
Co-sign your thoughts.
Possibly an announcement about their streaming service.
I heard he said their gamescon showing was great. . . . . . . . Levels
@mike Well last year they unveiled a new studio acquisition. Track record is off to a good start so far.
Right - at this point I just want to see announcements for big games or game play if they're far along enough. Just show me some first party material that can actually stand against Sony's first party IPs.
Ummm hmm...heard it before.
@Apocalypse Shadow "Ummm hmm...heard it before." And you´ll still be around to check it out. Someway, somehow. Lol!
*Not on mixer though* Another ms gig - another set of lofty promises.
And again they acquired a new studio last years event Obsidian and NXile. I remember the event actually being ok. But hey as you can live in your own head or take drugs and pretend MS isn't setting the ground work. Ignore everything just to have more comments like yours, that's what everyone else are doing. MS opens up studio N4G: Where the games!? MS Hires teams to support said studio N4G: Where are the games!? Rare is making a new project N4G: Its the same old talk and nothings happening. In fact Maybe you should stay off drugs... 0_o
Fair play to pessimistic bunch around, I'm one of them. ms don't give much confidence in their ability to deliver. Have you been asleep the last 10yrs?
You missed the usual next steps: MS cancels the games. MS shutters the studios. We've been through this. Until they prove otherwise the skepticism is warranted.
@oldboy I mean that's a more of you problem I mean MS can do nothing at in its 1st party at all and still rely on 3rd 2nd and a few 1st party games. Catch 22, Rock and a hard place damned if you do, damned if you don't. Essentially complain no matter what happens at this point. @Frosty Yep that's exactly what's gonna happen. Buy millions and millions of dollars of studios and million dollar projects just to have plans to cancel them. Yep you got all figure out, you're so smart... I mean nobody question Sony when they were cancelling games and shutdown studios last gen. @Kohox What are we waiting for exactly in 2018 and this year from MS? New Studio acquisitions maybe?
Yet the age old question still stands...where are the games?
Funny how you talk about people taking drugs when you assume, contrary to a decade of MS history, that they will just produce quality AAA games. Most people here are simply saying wait until MS ACTUALLY delivers what they promise. But here you are, knelt down, spoon feeding MS's promises like it's gospel, like they have a long and honest history of meeting their promises. News flash, they don't. Again, it's funny you talk about people taking drugs.
People are asking where the games are for this gen. As in now. They dont care that MS is setting themselves up for the future. Setting up for the future would be exciting if people were content with what they had to offer now. Most arent content, which is why people have been asking for years where the games are. This isnt a matter of people being impatient and giving them time to get going. They should have been at that point all gen. They were there before phil took over. Them trying to keep positive buzz for when they push their next console isnt them giving us games. Them saying theyll have all this stuff at some time in the vaguely defined future isnt giving us games. Them buying a bunch of studios isnt them giving us games. Here's the thing. MS are the ones who keep saying how great they're doing. They're the ones talking about how great they will be. Outside a few humble moments where phil tries to appear like he is hearing the criticism, its MS and phil who keep bringing up the topic, which is why there is ample opportunity for people to say..."but where are the games?"
So during Gamescon, MS say they will make big announcements at the NEXT conference?
It's very good to see your comment has so many agrees. Are people finally using 2 of their brain cells and indentifying a pattern with MS?
to be fair they will have to due to next gen coming, they will always start off with a bang (apart from the Xbox one) but then let's see if they can carry these forward into the future and years to come.
Very true. Unfortunately, the fanboys will eat up the ploy for a 4th time in a row...
Aaron Greenberg king of over promising/hype man
Well he is head of their marketing. It’s what they do
Everyone does it. Yoshida was telling everyone to get used to 1080p 60fps at the beginning of this generation and we both know that was a crock. You can twist almost anything to fit a certain agenda if you want. Look at the democrats they have done it for decades
Wait for XO19
And then wait for E3.
And then wait for XO...
And wait to next generation
and then wait for the Next gen E3 super duper fantastical games line-up that they've ever had. Never been done before. Amazing amount of world wide exclusives. Biggest Ever. Phil will levitate and fly around E3 from the power of exclusives
"Please be excited for"
He always says that haha
promises promises. MS is like the deadbeat dad of the gaming industry.
i see deadbeat dads down voted my comment lol.
They aren't the only ones doing this... Sony has been hyping Dreams for how many years and where is its exact release date? What about Last of Us II, where is its release date? Last of Us 2 first E3 trailer was in 2016. Dreams in 2015... At current rate both games will be console launch games for PS5. And everyone's favourite to remember.... The Last Guardian. Eventually shipped in the next generation. lol.
Dreams was a lot earlier. Dreams had teaser trailer in 2014. But, Dreams itself was announced in 2013 at the PlayStation Meeting when they showed off tech demos. They have been working on that game for over 8 years. In fact, Media Molecule said at Gamescon 2012 they were working two projects. One of those games became officially known as Dreams.
Dreams was originally just a tech demo to show off move. It wasnt announced as a game until later. I think it was slated for an earlier release, but they restarted production to update the engine or something
Believe it when I see it.
Wait until... I’ve heard this somewhere.
After the let down we're gonna hear the words the should trademark *wait till next E3*
Did you know that if something is often used to refer to a specific company, that they can win a trademark case if someone else tried to gain that trademark or uses for their own gain
Maybe new studios acquisition is in place. Either way, can’t wait for both XO19 and PSX 2019.
They said the same thing about E3 and Gamescon and both were duds.
Surprise...here are some trailers for games you know are coming. Weren't there any surprised at gamescom? If they have to hype up for the next show before the current one is even finished being reported on, then something isnt going well
Yep. I know what will be there for sure. Gamepass Gamepass Gamepass and Gamepass lol.
It's always the next show. I think it's safe to say that this gen is over for M, and next year is gonna be long. They actually gonna need to show something for the launch of their Scarlet.
It's like trusting cnn
Or Fox News 😂
I'm Watt- -SLAP-
Im taking this with a grain of salt
Stop. Dont beleive you. If Banjo Kazooie/Tooie remake isnt there....it doesnt count
Let’s see some games
Could they possibly show or reveal more about the next xbox
i can remeber years ago greenburg hyped up an event i remeber everyone on vgchartz tuned into the thread everyone eager to catch the news lmao all that happened was peter molenux got on stage to talk about fable. i sure hope its not like that
Most certainly there will be one or two studio acquisitions, and game reveals of a smaller scale that they won’t be able to fit on next years E3 stage
I think ms will probably buy another AA or A game studio.
Yeah just like e3 I was so surprised how bad it was.
Definitely keeping my expectations in check because E3 was suppose to be big and it was a dud. You better redeem yourself Microsoft after that boring E3. I want to see another AAA studio acquisition and at least new footage of what the new studios are working on for next gen. I doubt any will come true though.
