Sony’s relative silence gives Microsoft a chance to get the stage to themselves.
X019 here we come!
Its gonna be good
Denial to the fullest 😂😂
"Sony’s relative silence gives Microsoft a chance to get the stage to themselves." E3 2019 was given to MS in a golden plate with Sony not being there and still they failed to use that opportunity. This is not going to be any different.
"On a golden platter" is what you were looking for. I'm sure your thoughts make lots of sense in your own mind tho.
Man you told him. Plate.......platter he's probably somewhere crying/s.
@steveo. You are correct he is probably somewhere crying. I mean all he has in his life is his love of a plastic box that plays games and his hatred of a different plastic box that plays games. Who knows maybe you hold him in the shower as you both sway and sob and make anti MS comments
@Steveoreno1 Ha also said IN a golden plate... haha I wish all my food was given to me, in.. inside a golden plate! And the focus on golden plates was so dumb that WE ALL forgot to mention it should have read: A Silver Platter...
umm isnt tgs this month?, aint sony there? xo 19 isnt till november, sony could still announce an inside playstation or psx type show between now and then...jumping the gun a bit, no?
They will be there like they were at Gamescom. On the show floor, but wont be holding a conference or anything.
as long as they are there and showing games thats all that matters, they dont need to be on a stage to do that.
looks like they are holding a stage presentation after all. https://www.gamesradar.com/...
Feb 12th is the ps5 reveal event, they won't have a psx conference this year and ps5 event so close together. They might have a psx fan event though to play games but I think it will be all hands on deck for the Feb reveal personally.
they may or may not do a conference, depending on what their ps5 plans are, that feb date is a rumor, they could still do a state of play or just release game info, or still have a psx and tease the ps4, they dont have to have a conference to make noise or announce stuff though.
Oh very cool! Its weird I swear I saw an article saying they were just on the show floor. But this is much better
i wasnt sure myself to be honest, looking forward t seeing what this new resi is all about
there was also the ps5 first bits of info earlier in the year, death stranding teases and info spread out, on top of sony announcing the insomniac buy, thats not really silent is it?
The author still thinks Sony hasn’t attended any conferences this year and has remained relatively silent for the most part? Lmao
Gotta git that sweet sweet mindshare.
I know right? Who needs tangible, profitable stuff like market share when there's mind share. That fact that this is a space Microsoft even need to actively try to stay in says alot about how hard they dropped the ball post-360. If you told 360 fans (myself included, I had both systems last gen) in 2012 that the Xbox would struggle to even be a relevant brand, let alone a dominant console, you'd be laughed at like you were a crazy person.
I was primarily a PS3 player tbh, but I did own a 360 for the exclusives at the time plus alot of my friends played the popular shooters on it, I'm not suggesting the 360 was the greatest thing ever. You're right, RRoD did buff the numbers and it did have a head start, but even as a someone who is mainly a PlayStation player, it's not crazy to say that the 360 was objectively a good platform to play games on at the time. Both systems last gen had their flaws, but neither was an all round bad platform.
Not shitting on the Xbox brand but when you add up all the years since the original xbox release it's only really been about 5 excellent years for the 360 the rest of the years have been really poor. If the scarlett gen goes south for MS I think it just proves MS got lucky with the 360 launch (halo and gears and the party chat) caught Sony with there pants down.
@sphincterboy I guess you are new to gaming. The OG xbox was a fantastic console. It had some truly spectacular games. Ninja Gaiden KOTOR 1 and 2 Project Gotham Racing Halo 1 and 2 The first Forza Jade Empire Crimson Skies Steel Battalion Morrowind Doom 3 Half Life 2 Breakdown The Chronicles of Riddick just to name a few. It also had the best versions of multiplat games at the time. If you did not own one you must not really be into games
If MS couldn't win E3 by themselves, then I don't see anything else this year helping them. Nothing will be announced until the Scarlett comes.
The rumor is Microsoft will announce they purchased two more studios, so hopefully it will be more like four, or they'll have a boring showing. With Sony buying Insomniac, Microsoft needs to step their game up, because Insomniac Studios is one of the best studios out there and the next Xbox will need something to be able to stand, toe to toe with what PlayStation will offer.
Playground games should compete with what insomiac has to offer since they both offer some of the best open world games, just have to hope their open world rpg or whatever has the same quality their forza games has. And the initiative is rumored to be their Naughty Dog. Hopefully coalition can do more than Gears but its not like Sony doesnt have devs dedicated to certain franchises like GT and GoW, but its weird how all MS 1st party had to offer so far was nothing but established ips, and PG is finally breaking away from Forza which hopefully translates to other devs but maybe keep 343 with Halo since its in their namesake.
I have faith that Playground will be able to bring something good out, but I don't see anything from them soon, because they are working on a RPG. Obsidian in my own opinion will put the next Xbox on the map, but again they make RPGs, so we won't see something new from them for at least four years, seeing as they'll be working on the Outer Worlds still with DLC. The Initiative should be able to bring something good out, because the team they've put together. Yet the sad truth is I want to see what 343 and The Coalition can do outside of Halo and Gears. Those two companies are phenomenal developers, but I want to see more from them, over more of the same. The honest truth is I want to see more from Xbox, because as a Xbox fan I want to see the next system being healthy and I can say that the Xbox One wasn't the healthiest, because very few new IPs came out. I like what I'm seeing from Microsoft with adding more game studios, but still they need more and even though they are adding more at the same time they don't have that many, because they sold off Bungie, plus have closed the doors on other developers too. So I just want to see more and them not just be Kickstarter companies that Microsoft is buying.
Ms need to announce the studio differently, not at a conference, show gameplay and lots of AAA games and diversity.
scarlett will be there
I'm sure they ll introduced Xbox Scarlett at this year XO.
Who cares will they focus on the games and less on the atrocious presenters? I honestly don't think so.
Xbox fanboys will defend Xbox no matter what it seems I don’t even like reading some of these guys comments on here anymore. I just hope Xbox do better next gen or it probably will be Xbox last one if it don’t.
They had revenues of over 10 billion last year and have confirmed they aint leaving the console space. But keep wishing if it helps you sleep at night
Mindshare through PR talk. How about actually make games that people want and let the games speak? Na, thats not their style it seems.
I want gears 5 so it sounds like they are making games people want
Then you can play halo and forza and wash it down with mountain dew, and you are set for the generation.
Console Warriors blindly attack Xbox... because we need to attack Xbox... Why? because we hate Xbox. Why? Because we hate Xbox... Okay... get a life, please. I'm sure they have some good things to announce just like Sony would if they had their annual show.
For the performance of Xbox this gen they surely deserve the ridicule and doubts. Not because of hate or anything truly. It's because this gen was 90% PR fluff and cloud promises. They strung along Xbox gamers so bad this gen that those clouds produced a storm with tons of rain that it nearly sank the xbox ship leading to a bunch of those fans jumping ship. I mean it's all in the numbers. Oh but I forgot they stopped releasing those and again changed that narrative with more PR fluff. What ever makes you die hards happy though. This is the only gen that xbox has been in where there has been pretty much no reason to own an xbox and it looks like that trend will continue. Sales and market share alone prove my point. A ton of xbox players sure jumped out this gen..
So Forza horizon. Ori. Sunset Overdrive. Quantum Break. Gears 4 and 5 and Halo 5? The best controller. The most powerful hardware. Dedicated servers. Gamepass I mean your fanboy is showing but you may want to sound less informed in front of gamers on a gaming website
Imagine having to bring up games from the beginning of the gen, and H/G/F to defend the game library of an entire generation.
Has nothing to do with hate. Remove the blinders. Even people who literally bought the XB1 is questioning Microsoft's direction.
I imagine they will have one or two new studios to announce and also the games those new studios are making plus a lot of talk about xcloud and new additions to gamepass
I forgot Microsoft are still in the console business. Silly really, but i just never give them any thought these days.
Ah now max stop telling porkies. Your comment history is filled with you bashing anything xbox. I fear you do nothing but think about xbox.
Literally they don't though. They spend all this time and effort on these rubbish Xbox events and streams, with cringy presenters and waste of time content, all it takes is Sony to mention PS5 or announce something like the acquisition of Insomniac and Sony gets just as much interest, hype and coverage if not more... Xbox can keep doing these absolute waster shows but if they have nothing to do apart from tread water like they have done all generaton, then who really cares? Give us something big to actually care about.
Xbox news full of salty playstation owners like always, whats new?
We don't need an entire conference for a studio acquisition announcement and to know what game is going to be on Game Pass next month. XO18 was a dreadfully boring showcase and I expect no better this year
I could not c less about Xbox next or xbox 1 Now that every game is on pc,.. I see no reason to buy a MS console at all,.. On 360,.. at lest you had Froza,Halo, Gears (relatively exclusive for some time), so you did not feel like a complete moron if you bought the machine,..Nowadays,..There is literally nothing that stays exclusive for long,.. basically 0 day for first party,..
"Now that every game is on pc,.. I see no reason to buy a MS console at all" Exactly. For us PC gamers it's awesome that MS is supporting our platform of choice and that we don't have to waste money on irrelevant hardware.
"and the Xbox brand clearly has life in it yet, evidenced by the strong performance of premium Xbox-branded hardware, such as the Xbox One Elite controller, and the Xbox One X" Proof of this? When did Microsoft ever reveal any numbers that specific? They did not sustain any increased sales one they released X1X, so that certainly isn't true.
"Mindshare" Is this the new buzzword for today? /s
I see some people saying no one cares about Xbox and their events like ok you guys love PlayStation that’s awesome it’s a good console but to say that is just ridiculous The last live Xbox show had 300k viewers and the one before that (e3) was in the millions Xbox one almost at 50 million sold with 65 million xbl users (this I’m sure is xb1 and windows combine) to say no one cares is just childish Why can’t everyone just get along and love all consoles 🤷♂️
Almost 50 million sold? Link please. I don't even think they reached 45 million yet. Last time I checked they were at 42 million in late March. I don't think they sold 8 million consoles in 5 months.🤔😂 http://www.vgchartz.com/art...
Lol this is exactly what I’m talking about this guy right here toxic and immature no way he’s over 18 with a fanboy mindset like that Anyways vgcharts under tracks all 3 consoles and their games by millions there’s so much proof of this you can search it yourself Either way 43 million is healthy asf same with Nintendo’s 36 mill and Ps4s 90 million + and I’m happy all 3 are doing amazing numbers Take your fanboy crap elsewhere I’m an adult
Sounds like I hit a nerve. Calm down. Just stating facts has nothing to do with fanboy mindset 🤦🏻♂️
They had the stage to themselves at E3 and Gamescom this year and as usual, didn't set the world on fire with a single Xbox only related announcement. Why would this be any different?
Lol no 17 year old can hit my nerves nice try 😂 go be a child somewhere else
You keep replying back. So I did hit a nerve. 😂😂😂 it's okay Zee. 😁
Losing bungie was the end for xbox. Halo nosedived massively, gears hasn't changed in a decade (hope gears 5 is good!) and while forza is great, it's just a racer and can't carry a platform
Yes because Destiny sure did blow everyone away...
I'm guessing acquisitions of Bloober team and IO Interactive, Pillars 3, inXile's next RPG, and Double Fine's next game(probably will be a smaller game). Also Gears/SOT DLC of some sort. Should be interesting.
Xbox: welcome to XO1- PlayStation on Twitter: we have acquired- Xbox: OMG SONY, JUST STOP BULLING US!!!!! PlayStation: ...... Xbox: ...... PlayStation: ..... Xbox: anyway, we would like to announce- PlayStation: psx 2019 in December Xbox: *commits self-isekai*
Some walk the walk, others talk the talk.
So many Xbox haters and yet they will still be watching eyes glued to the conference lol even tho they want it to fail and say it’s irrelevant they keep watching and can’t they keep the word Xbox or Microsoft out of there mouth even tho it’s suposeed to be a dead and irrelevant company as they keep saying idk what these Sony fans are fighting like go fight Nintendo? But nope they hang around anything Xbox scared and afraid and ready to pounce at anything positive about Xbox I don’t get it why fight something you Considers dead and gone and irrelevant........unless your lying 🤨🤨🤨
