Microsoft has announced an Xbox Games Showcase: Extended presentation that will take place on Thursday, June 17 and will feature conversations with Double Fine, Obsidian, Ninja Theory, Rare, and more.
HELL YEAH!!! Because just 90 minutes is not enough! So many games!
I need more Everwild.
Don't we all. Is that game not sublimely beautiful.
Being rebooted. https://www.videogameschron...
Can I get some Avowed!? or Fable, or Hellblade2 before I pop an ulcer waiting…
I was assuming this was just a knee jerk reaction to the poor conference they just had which amounted to more Halo more Forza with a couple of extra games. But it sounds like these devs won’t be showing anything
Poor conference? Lmao the hate is strong with this one
That’s exactly what happened.
I think you watched the wrong conference lol
Obscure_Observer I find you so weird man you got excited for CGI trailers and you bash other companies for showing gameplay the definition of hypocrisy there's a reason you have more disagrees than agrees All Spencer has to do is open his mouth and you're happy and praise him while other companies go above and beyond and can't please gamers like you. 90 minutes or not enough for CGI trailers you are right maybe it's time for them to show some gameplay and their biggest game in Halo still did not look good TheProblem Instead of showing all those CGI trailers they should have shown more gameplay even if it's free alpha early footage we literally had a game announced where the developers themselves made fun of the fact they don't have any gameplay story or anything ready for the game but they are announcing it. I guess Nintendo and Sony should announce games which are 10 years down the road but you know just release CGI trailers or nothing at All There is such a double standard from Xbox fanboys all Microsoft has to do is talk and that's it they want even though they are in the third place and have been there for a long time
I don’t understand why I keep seeing comments of a lot of cgi trailers… do people not know what a cgi trailer is anymore? Because as far as I could tell there were only like 3-4 in total, Redfall, Outer Worlds 2, Contraband and A Plague Tale (though a couple of bits of A Plague Tale were in game).
@Onilink Avatar and most the big AAA games was CGI trailer. They didn't even show a campaign demo of Halo Infinite or give an official release date which I was surprised by. Most of the indie games showed gameplay 343 just showed the multi-player gameplay. Why not show us a campaign demo like they did last year, especially since this game in coming out in about 3 to 4 months 🤔 I'm hoping 343 can nail the campaign and multi-player and not just one mode
Avatar? That wasnt even in the MS conference…. And everything they showed of Halo was clearly in game, not cgi. So again I gotta ask? Do people not know what a CGI trailer is anymore?
--Onilink-- Starfield Outer world Did these have gameplay or am I missing that section of the conference. Let me ask you a better question since you seem to think people don't know what CGI is do people not know what actual gameplay. Simply showing a logo of the game and calling it a day. I guess Sony should go ahead and announce uncharted the god of war after this the next GT the next horizon because those are coming so they can show them and they'll be ready in 5+ years And what's amazing is the CGI trailers they showed last year at E3 a lot of them did not even make any appearance this year so these games are announcing there's no guarantee that they will be there next year to show any gameplay
You do understand there is a difference between a CGI trailer and an In-engine trailer right? Because Starfield was clearly labeled as in engine, it even had the engine name in it. If you want to complain about games not showing gameplay, that is a very different thing than complaining about the trailers being CGI. Also, I did mention outer worlds, and contraband and redfall and quite a lot (but not all) of A Plague Tale. Those 4, out of 30, were clearly CGI trailers That is why I ask if people dont know anymore what a CGI trailer is
@Onilink A Plague Tale is a multiplatform game though. All their first party exclusives was CGI trailer. I give Obsidian a pass because I know Outerworlds 2 is going to be good
@CaptainHenry I think we are talking about completely different topics, im saying that some people are complaining about a lot of cgi trailers in the MS conference when there were only like 3-4 out of 30 games shown. I havent said anything about other conferences, whether the games are exclusive or not or if I think they should have shown more.
GlaciusZero No goal posts I want everyone to treat all companies the same. Nintendo gets a free pass because they are Nintendo and the nostalgia Factor. Xbox has the wait till next E3 meme (which BTW they have earned) and Sony has to do great just to get enough good credit So you mean to tell me that today's conference was great for Microsoft?
@neutralgamer1992 Dude, just take your L and move on. You among a few PS diehard were expecting E3 to fail, Xbox to fail, Halo Infinite to fail, Starfield to be either multiplatform or a failure, you people didn´t expect for high profile first party games to be Day One on Xbox Gamepass, god forbid high profile third party AAA games. What we had (So far. There´s more coming) was a impressive showcase and line up of games! As --Onilink-- already point out, just a few CGI trailers out of 30 games presented. Turns out that you don´t even know the difference between CGI and In-Engine trailer, smdh. Xbox-Bethesda showcase was all about games, games and even more games! You´re just bitter, sad and hurt because Sony refused to attend and now you have to deal with the fact that E3 will always be E3 for games. With or without Sony. Have a nice week. :)
Obscure_Observer Take the L for what exactly? You just can't take any criticism of Xbox brand and you worship Phil. Seriously The message of hope is string I guess but maybe you haven't noticed the fact Sony never stopped releasing games to begin with and just this month alone have ratchet and clank and FF7 DLC. When you wanna talk games and facts let me know without getting all emotional. And that halo gameplay 😆 they were so scared to even show campaign (500+ million spent and over 5+ years in development and this is what they have to show for it. 343i have tarnished halo IP) Maybe y'all need to realize the difference between gameplay and CGI/in engine trailer. It shouldn't be that hard to understand there was not a lot of gameplay and maybe you didn't read but I did say "A lot of these recent acquisitions had released games right before being bought so it will take them time to release new games which is totally understandable. Few years ago Phil himself said that companies should be showing games which are years out and this whole E3 was filled with promise of future years. This right here is the reason many don't like Phil because he talks from both sides of his mouth Sony and Nintendo should definitely attend. E3 is a special time for gamers and these companies should show what they have been working on but if we are going to see trailers only with very little gameplay than I much rather have the deep dives like they did recently with Horizon From end of Xbox 360 till now Ms hasn't recovery and have been constantly playing catch up to sony and nintendo. In the past 12 months look at playstation exclusives vs Xbox and even you will realize which company is doing what with their resources But I guess while playing ratchet and clank and FF7 among with games I should take the L while.you take the W by playing the wait game
Outer Worlds 2 trailer was clearly a self-aware parody. Contraband was simply an "announcement teaser". Personally, I hate those types of trailers. If they don't have anything to show then I don't think they should be announcing the game but hey, that's just me. Starfield was not CGI, it was in-engine like all BGS trailers and will be representative of the game. Redfall was absolutely CGI. What annoys me about trailers like this is that the game is supposedly only 12 months from release. That trailer was really long and must have taken a lot of work but instead of pissing about on making that flashy garbage, the developer should focus on bringing us something that actually represented the gameplay. It very much gave me a "mobile game vibe" with that tripe, even though its seemingly a console game.
@all the above You know, in-engine and realtime are not the same. These game engines are more than capable of being used as traditional rendering programs and they certainly do, especially when those assets and work have already been done in said engine. Realtime is important to know that it represents what graphical quality they can deliver on the hardware with those quality of assets.
They showed gameplay trailers as well. But even CGI trailers arebetter than having no conference at all no? Lol
GlaciusZero I agree with you I think it was a very good conference I'm not hating on the conference itself. Most companies should not be showing games which are years away and this goes for all three console makers. What is a good start Microsoft has the fire power now and they have 20 plus studios they should be able to do some quality things. My original comment was not meant to hate on them because I have myself an Xbox. Just that few years ago Phil Spencer himself said companies should not be showing games which are years away and now vast majority of the stuff that was shown had no release date
Obsecure Observe Owned you!!!
Pretty lame showing they had. I think they realized it so now they want to give us something more to fill in the void.
Them ponys salty of this comment😂😂 514;
The year is long and there's more events. Fable, Perfect Dark, Hellblade 2, Avowed and everwild should be part of what we gonna see all the year. If you unify all the titles that I just mentioned with the ones that were announced in the conference.....boy we have something big.
"But, has no games!" Where are all those people now? 27 new titles so far included with gamepass day one at no extra charge. Who care if some are multi platform. The others can enjoy pay $60 - $70 for a game that's Gamepass included at no extra charge. Plus, how are you getting down votes?
Just so Hellblade 2 for chrissake
Can't show a game that is still in the planning stages.
Didn’t stop them from before.
Hellblade 2 was announced way back in 2019. Ninja Theory must be one lazy dev if it take them 2 years to still be in “planning stages”. On that topic, are you an insider working for Ninja Theory?
Looks like I can hold out hope for some avowed snippets
That would be sweet.
Elder Scrolls 6 and avowed were what i was hoping to see trailers of at this e3. It was a long shot to want them but those are the games I'm interested in. Fantasy rpg's just hold a special place for me. Starfield could be good though but it's an unknown to me. I also liked horizon gameplay, definitely picking that up and probably gonna play halo on game pass.
That would be great but I wouldn’t get your hopes up too much. The game could be 2 years away. I’d be happy just hearing some info about what period it’s set in compared to Pillars of Eternity and some idea of how the game will play.
"conversations with developers" Doubt there'll be anything shown.
Less filler, more thriller?
What E3 show has no filler since its inception?
Curious if they announce an acquisition or two here, with the persistent rumors of xbox being in talks with Crytek, Avalanche and IO interactive and all that.
I really want them to but Crytek. They got the talent, they just need the MS support. Avalanche and IOI can wait. They're doing relatively better.
Honestly would rather have ms focus on the studios they already have now. In exile and compulsion are still to be seen and studios like alpha dogs, focus on id tech engine integrate with studios they already have now rather than brining more into the fold. That is unless they’re looking to burn money on some investments and have seen some good pitches.
@shabz666 Wouldn't hurt to get another famous game-engine in your bag. id-tech has its limitations. Its very linear FPS focused. Arkane and Tango faced the issues and switched to UE4 for their upcoming projects. Arkane Austin chose Cry Engine for Prey.
Hunt showdown is nearly my fav game of last gen. So unique and so much tension!!!
@ArthriticPowers And one of the most realistic looking games that very few appreciate. (at least on PC)
I don't see why they wouldn't have announced that at the main showcase if they had such an announcement.
Them: “It’s important to note that Microsoft specifically mentions that this show will feature "conversations with developers" and makes no mentions of big reveals” People: “OMG brand new game reveals, they are showing even more” so on and on
Lol. How do you like the show, Fox? Still mad at Phil? XD
Glad you liked the show! It's about time Xbox fans have something to look forward to, even if almost all their games can be played elsewhere
@F0XH0UND922 "It's about time Xbox fans have something to look forward to" Xbox gamers got plenty to look forward to, it´s gonna be a busy generation for us. "even if almost all their games can be played elsewhere" I don´t really care if you play Xbox games on a dishwasher, dude. Just enjoy great games and be happy. ;)
yeah, but all saying how great this show was... It really make sense...
Lol they also having a halo infintie game play overview with 2 hours game play today. I think they doing the same for forza h5 but i could be wrong.
Lol at the down vote 343 studio website say expect a deeper dive into halo multiplayer today.
Xbox/Bethesda showcase part 2!!!! #hype
Yeah! Look, the MS/Bethesda showcase was, in my opinion, really fantastic, but some of the biggest stuff was left out. I guess that was to curb expectations a little. But more info on some of the other blockbusters coming down the line would really be the icing on an already tasty cake.
Oh shit, by the gods I wanted to see FABLE so bad!!!
They made a clever choise for a change, a show only for games an another one all for dev talk, thanks MS.
Damage control. Microsoft already knows what social media is saying.
The social media & youtube are all very positive about the Xbox show. They are saying its their best show since the 360 days. I've watch a few after show YouTube videos & their giving the show mostly Bs plus even a couple of As. Theres not many places it's being talked down apart from the usual suspects on N4G as per usual. 30 games 27 of them coming to Gamepass day one. That is awesome for me.
Dude, maybe xbox channels. The others arent. It was average, without any blockbuster bombshell that we werent expecting. There no hype the day after. It was a very good 90 minute gamepass commercial. Gamers were expecting gameplay good or better then anything sony as reveal...
Waverider, its not just Xbox channels its getting praise, there's even Sony fans saying it was a good show & are thinking of Getting a Xbox S or X. What's wrong with all the games coming to Gamepass. Most can't afford to buy all those games they'll be lucky to afford 2 or 3, now you can play 27 out of 30 of them for a bargain price. Its great for gamers. Plus there was loads of Gameplay there were 3 or 4 that didn't show Gameplay. Did you actually watch Microsofts E3?
Wave. There's absolutely no tidy discussion to be had with you. You even point out Battlefield & Far Cry plus Diabolo ain't on Gamepass while there's another 27 out of 30 that will be on Gamepass. Your entitled to your opinion but judging by your comment history you have obviously got an agenda. There's no reasonable discussion to be had with you.
“ Dude, maybe xbox channels. The others arent.” There are tons of praises for MS here on N4G as well. Just look at the comments. And try visiting sites like IGN or Eurogamer as well. “ There no hype the day after.” So why are almost all of the hot articles on N4G are about MS? “ Gamers were expecting gameplay good or better then anything sony as reveal” Did you see “in-engine” plastered almost on all of the videos during the presentation?
It was good by Microsoft Standard. Thats the reality. The game that shine was Forza. Again, another Forza. There wasnt a single Triple AAA game that Microsoft show gameplay that was special... Halo MP.... It was 90 minutos of selling gamepass, Timed exclusives. and gamepass over and over. Everybody was expecting big things from Starfield and... well... no gameplay... a bunch of generic zombie games. Battlefield and Far Cry arent on gamepass. boring simulator. Diablo was cool, but its multiplat and isnt on gamepass. Another thing go read what it means in-engine, because the battlefield microsoft trailer was in in-engine and we already have seen gameplay and its notihing like the in-engine trailer..... Beside games that are very far away.
“ It was good by Microsoft Standard. Thats the reality. The game that shine was Forza. Again, another Forza. There wasnt a single Triple AAA game that Microsoft show gameplay that was special... Halo MP” Wow. And you did also say “damage control”, which is kindda ironic really.
Man I tell you people will Beeyatch about any and everything that MS is doing. I mean damn, just last year they had no games and now they’re at LEAST MS is showing you they’re actively being worked on. I mean we should all know the story by now of how Xbox was a bastard child, bad leadership, and blah blah blah. What we’re seeing here is CHANGE and it’s a welcome change vs always having to wait in Sony and Nintendo to deliver games. This is a big step in the right direction by MS and should be applauded at the very least. They still need to stick the landing ( deliver a new AAA game ) but things look promising:)
Great showcase can’t wait to see what Sony is doing hopefully bring the same energy and big announcements
