Chirag Pattni talks about the past, present, and future of E3 as well as what Xbox needs to do to dominate the event next year.
Don't they say this every year about Xbox
Well this one is a new console generation, so this is their chance to turn everything around. The XBO reveal and interviews ruined the console before it even hit shelves, so they have a lot of work to do to even get back to the same hope of achieving the 360 level of success (which is a difficult battle on its own).
"this is their chance to turn everything around." The say that about every E3 too. Actually, they have "won" E3, have come away from many of them with tons of momentum, thing is, they've also repeated failed to build on that momentum. To live up to what amounted to be E3 promises.
This made my day.. Chortle * chortle*
Every year the same song and dance.
That's dumb. We get you got an agenda to follow but E3 2020 is next gen reveal
And that conversation will be dominated by PS5, have you been living under a rock? Sony has stayed particularly quite the last year or so, when they drop the smallest piece of info it blows up. People are genuinely excited for PS5, this has been amazing for PS4 - it's library of excluisives stand news and shoulders above anything out there.
@xX-oldboy-Xx "People are genuinely excited for PS5, this has been amazing for PS4 - it's library of excluisives stand news and shoulders above anything out there." And what exactly make people less excited about the Scarlett?
I'd say for the next E3, Microsoft needs to go all out and shows games, lots and lots of games. They need to tease people with revivals of old games and show new IPs too. If also say they need to announce they purchased more game studios, because as of right now they need more. I hate to talk about their competitor in Sony, but you have too, because Sony has been doing everything right and Microsoft, not so much. Microsoft needs a big company like how Sony got Insomniac to become first, but one that will make Xbox brand games instead. Your system lives or dies without exclusives and the next Xbox will need more than just Forza, Halo and Gears to even have a fighting chance to compete with the PS5. This is free advice, not only should Microsoft buy more studios, they need to create new ones, plus add another team to 343 and the Coalition, because adding more game studios to their company, isn't going to hurt them at all, but only help them and they need it.
@BlackIceJoe "I'd say for the next E3, Microsoft needs to go all out and shows games, lots and lots of games. They need to tease people with revivals of old games and show new IPs too." Phil Spencer has been keeping his promises on not revealing games too soon in early stages of development. Sony did it, and that´s the reason why they have been skipping gaming events like E3 and their own PSX. Next year, none of these companies will be revealing too much , so keep your expectations in check. "If also say they need to announce they purchased more game studios, because as of right now they need more." Right now Xbox Game Studios is bigger than Sony´s Worldwide Studios! Xbox has 15 and Sony has 14 (yes, including Insomniac) "Your system lives or dies without exclusives and the next Xbox will need more than just Forza, Halo and Gears to even have a fighting chance to compete with the PS5." Sames goes to Sony! ND dropped the Uncharted franchise! They only have TLOU now. We don´t if Polyphony will continue with the current "Sport" formula or will bring back the good old "Gran Turismo". Ghost of Tsushima is a new IP. Guerrilla might be working on a Killzone or Horizon sequel. Santa Monica on a new God sequel. What about the rest?
A whole generation of “wait till E3”
Pretty much but next E3 should be all about these next gen consoles do they should have plenty to show by then.
Initiative, playground games, turn 10, 343i and rare reveals for sure. Im excited for two things...halo and what initiative gonna show.
We've seen a $600 '1080p 120fps' ps3 transition to a good successor(ps4). We've seen wii u transition into switch which is selling amazingly. So "can" they? It's very possible. Anything can happen. If anyone says no this early not knowing what will happen next gen -is all hardcore fanboyism.
ms would kill for PS3 sales figures about now hahaha, even PSP numbers. They shit the bed big time with xbox one and I don't think they can come into next gen with any sort of positive momentum. It's going to be huge hurdle to overcome and Sony will be going for the jugular which will make doubly hard for ms.
@xX-oldboy-Xx "It's going to be huge hurdle to overcome and Sony will be going for the jugular which will make doubly hard for ms." Lol! I´m glad that Playstation is not runned by arrogant and ignorant idiots! Jim Ryan´s quote: “The track record of the incumbent platform winning the next time around is not a great one,”
Wow 2 compliments in one sentence - go you haha. You silly dickhead, where do you think arrogance and ignorance thrives? It ain't Sony or Nintendo I'll tell you that much. You can work the rest out surely.
@Obscure “The track record of the incumbent platform winning the next time around is not a great one,” Weird. Playstation has won 3 out of 4 generations and is about to have a 3rd console sell over 100 million units. How many times has Xbox won a generation or sold over 100 million? Oh right ZERO. " What about the rest?" What about them? They're working on new IPs and sequels to some amazing franchises. Xbox only wishes they could too.
I think MS would have to have a stunning line up of games for next gen, probably beat Sony on price, stop acting like they're God's gift to gaming, and hope that Sony makes some major missteps to really get the mainstream on board that quickly. I think it's possible that they can turn things around, but I think it's going to take longer than 2-3 years.
@rainslacker "I think it's possible that they can turn things around, but I think it's going to take longer than 2-3 years" What? "Turn things around"? But you said many times that Xbox is doomed under Spencer! Are you ok, man? Lol.
I've never said they were doomed. I said Spencer was ineffectual, and wasn't doing the things he needed to do to turn things around, or make me feel my purchase of the system was worthwhile. I still feel the same way, because Spencer is still all talk when it comes to what I criticize him over. When he delivers, then I'll lay off, or when next gen comes, because by then, I probably won't give a damn about Xbox anymore, and I won't have spent my money on their systems.
Is your username irony?
I’d be more worried about E3 being able to capitalize on whoever actually shows up.
No, their slogan is * wait till E3*
No - No they can't, the studios they purchased probably won't have much to show, PS5 will be dominating the news and internet narrative - xbox will just be an after thought. We already know of one launch title for scarlett and that isn't getting much hype at all.
What about Microsoft Flight Simulator?
What about it?
@xX-oldboy-Xx "We already know of one launch title for scarlett and that isn't getting much hype at all." Halo Infinite? Forza Motorsport 8? Flight Simulator 2020?
I alluded to Halo you numpty, no hype whatsoever for a launch title of a new console. Forza 8 are we already up to number 8? Sounds like a fair bit of killing going on - wouldn't you say? And is it really something to get 'hyped' for? Now we're excited for flight sims on consoles? Do you think your reaching a little mate? They need something big and fresh to garner any sort of genuine excitement, for their sales I hope NT can come up with something better than a 4 v 4 beat'em up. Best rely on 3rd parties like they've always done.
@xX-oldboy-Xx "I alluded to Halo you numpty, no hype whatsoever for a launch title of a new console." No hype? Lol! Look at your PS peers! There´s lots of them excited about Halo Infinite! Even here on N4G, all I read is "Can´t wait to play this game on my PC"! Bare in mind that we have ZERO actuall gameplay footage for that game! Even YOU will be first in the line to see that game the momment Microsoft release official gameplay. And I gonna be there to call you out on your hypocritical BS! "Forza 8 are we already up to number 8? Sounds like a fair bit of killing going on - wouldn't you say?" Top notch sim racing game of all generations! A true next gen Forza Motorsport game? Yes, we want it! "And is it really something to get 'hyped' for? Now we're excited for flight sims on consoles? Do you think your reaching a little mate?" You tell me! Again, look at your PS peers! Lol! https://n4g.com/news/230015... SONY has NOTHING that can graphically compare to this! Now tell me about the games comming to PS5 to be hyped about besides the console itself? I´ll wait. Lol!
" SONY has NOTHING that can graphically compare to this!" Yeah that's a lot of reaching there. Sony has had the best looking games graphically this entire generation and better gameplay and GAMES in general. You think a year from now by the time Flight Simulator launches that nothing on the PS5 will compare?! What a joke.
keanu reeves will not save them next year
He didn't really save them this year either.
Probably not, let's be honest. They couldn't even do it without any competition.
"Wait till e321" echoing parrots.
Wow Xbox One‘s entire lifecycle has begun and ended with “wait till E3, things will be different this time”
Maybe thats their new slogan. -"Xbox 2 - Just wait, E3 cometh!"
I hope Sony's E3 2020 conference is AFTER Microsoft's so they can drop some Huge bombs on Xbox 4 reveal. I very much enjoyed Sony's piss-taking and rug-pulling at the 2013 conference.
Like announcing a lower price point, for example, or full native PS1-4 BC.
with TV and TV !!!! https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Wow, so many Sony fanboys commenting on an opinion piece about Xbox. It's almost as if their whole existence is about criticising a console that is an alternative to their favourite console. Clearly, Xbox is not in the same position as it was going from Xbox 360 to Xbox One. Whatever the next Xbox is needs to be either more powerful or on complete parity with PS5. They need to have at least 1 or 2 killer exclusives at launch alongside Halo Infinite and (the inevitable) Forza Motorsport 8. We also need to see what is coming in the future from all the studio purchases they have made. If they do all that, then there is a chance they can take the fight to Sony. Whether they will, only time will tell. I'll tell you this though, I'm excited about E3 2020
They're worse than the Dallas Cowboys fans.
Announcing the departure of Aaron Greenburg, would be a thing of beauty.
E3 should’ve been great for MS this year. I have a feeling that E3 for MS in 2020 is still going to be full of CGI trailers and less gameplay. If that turns out to be true, then they haven’t learned anything.
Ohh... The eternal Xbox E3 loop of illusion. A better question would be... Why they haven't capitalize before?
