Xbox’s VP of Games Marketing has revealed that the upcoming Xbox Games Showcase will feature all in-game or in-engine footage for its first party titles.
Sounds like it's going to be a show for the ages.
Always with the hyperbole lol It'll be great that though, thats the important thing.
Now they say that, what about the one were they "showed" avowed, everwild, SOD 3, Fable, Hellblade 2, Perfect Dark, ALL CGI Trailers, when it's convenient for them that's a good thing, now they bloat about their "In-game" engine footage.
People criticized the all CGI Xbox showcase then as well as far as i can recall ... check the DF weekly at the time, DF criticized the cgi only announcements as well
@RaidenBlack Exactly, do not do it first and then make this announcement against it 2 years later.
Its called learning from feedback. A lot of people complained about it, and they know they need to impress people with actual games. It's not about whats "convenient for them", its about what they need to do to get people excited again f\or Xbox future.
I dunno about that but it at least seems like they've been listening to the feedback they've been getting over the past few years. That makes me a little more excited for the show after they said some games might be more than 12months out.
I'm also curious will all their games be running on Xbox or PC? If Starfield is running at 60fps then we know it's running on a PC
That’s what I was thinking 🤔 that Xbox will give us that running on PC using similar settings to Xbox Series X trick! To me that is more dishonest than a CGI trailer. We need to see something that takes true advantage of the Series X! That Xbox is screaming POWER!
A step in the right direction
Let’s hope for some great gameplay No CGI isn’t a big thing because it could mean 2 minute gameplay trailers with very little information. I much rather see less games but see actually how they will be played
Sounds like "gameplay" will be mixed with CG. We'll be hearing from a lot of studio people praising their work, the industry, gamers and each other.
Aaron Greenberg never lies. /s
Can't wait for this... HATE CGI trailers. I get it for older consoles like PS1, but with the power behind today's hardware, there is no excuse.
Cgi trailers are only good as quick teasers. Anything that likely releasing shortly has to be ganeplay
"In-Engine" trailers can be just as easily manipulated, controlled and edited in a way to completely mis-represent a game though. Honestly I'd rather see 5-10 minute segments of a handful of games in a format similar to a state of play, where mechanics are explained and real gameplay with visible HUDs are shown than an hour of logo reveals and cinematic "in-game" trailers. Lets wait and see I guess.
in-engine footage is CGI
Up, let's wait and see what trick will Microsoft use this time.
@Mooppeister no surprise there. they will be using PC footage ultra settings for ALL their 1st party games, nothing new!
Exactly what I was thinking, MS always gotta use those technicalities. If they just straight up only show gameplay and real time trailers, I'll be stunned.
There's a diference between in game rendered scenes and CGI created from a PC.
yea, in-engine footage is in-engine footage, game's own engine ... showcase of what the game might look in real time when played on the console/pc CGI is the one that doesn't use the game's own engine but a different renderer/software (non-real time), just to give an idea what the devs trying to target the game's look to be ... Like the Star Wars Eclipse trailer ... that trailer was created wayy before the devs even started on the actual project.
Oh how tables have turned.
For who exactly? MS has a lot to prove, they can not afford to screw up anymore . You better hope this showcase goes off without a hitch because even their loyal faithful fanbase are getting tired of the shit.
Difference between realtime or prerendered in-engine. You can use a game engine for your CGI rendering as well.
Microsoft is pretty much cannibalizing itself making all games available on pc and game pass, no reason to get an Xbox for me but I guess since they own windows platform it's not all bad. In any case i'm excited for some new games. I just wish I could get more adventure and rpg games from them. I don't play shooters or multi-player arena games.
This is their whole game plan right. Getting subscribers VS actual sales. They would rather have 10 dollars a month from 30 million people (300 million dollars monthly) rather than bank on a AAA selling for like $700 million once or twice a year. And I'm not saying they currently have 30 million subscribers, just that's what they would want instead.
