Summer Game Fest host and producer Geoff Keighley has rubbished suggestions that competition from his rival event was partly responsible for the cancellation of this year’s E3.

True. Games fest is the crappy replacement for the e3 incompetence. When they leaked all of that info they were done with the major companies

After the first E3 I watched after talking a break from gaming, I knew it was going to fail. You can't make these events about who can lick which influencers'/celebrities&# 39; boots the best and expect gamers to stick around.

I miss E3. I know for whatever reason, some people are happy for it to be gone but the presentations and the crowd reactions made it feel special. The hype is never the same for these showcases. I get why companies do their own but E3 dying lost some of gamings magic. Game fest is cool but it's never the spectacle that E3 was

Not just that, but you get devs and execs in one place for journalists to face questions. Now we just get a pre-recorded show and no one available to ask questions of.

I also miss E3, but I don't actually want it to come back. I feel a lot of stuff got in the overall quantity of games announced.

There’s No one in gaming more annoying than Keighley.

potatoseal106d ago

He'll always be the Dorito Pope to me.

GhostScholar106d ago

He would die for kojima and Kojima could care less about him. It’s like the nerd who the high school qb says what’s up to and to the nerd that means they’re best friends.

Microsoft would buy Valve 'if opportunity arises,' said Phil Spencer in leaked email

But its prime target was Nintendo, according to a 2020 email leaked during the FTC v Microsoft trial.

Microsoft is getting exposed big time. Now I know why FTC tried to block them

Yet despite the insane about of power hungry evidence…they still failed

"Yet despite the insane about of power hungry evidence…they still failed"

And will continue to fail as long as they put interest of a Multibillionaire companies like Sony, first, over consumer´s interest.

-Foxtrot1d 9h ago

Sony? We’re talking about Microsoft man

The biggest deflect I’ve seen…

If this doesn't yell "monopoly" intentions, I don't know what does. The judge who over saw the FTC case, has a son who works for MS. No conflict of interest?

And yet the Phil brown nosers will defend his every move.

MrDead1d 13h ago

And we now know there is no consumer protection to stop it. MS is the worst thing to happen to gaming.

Obscure_Observer1d 10h ago

No, it´s not. It´s business as usual.

You´re here complaining on every Xbox article, and behind the scenes you´re still supporting Microsoft by given them money while help them to achieve their goals!

Just leave it to rest Obscure.

It is now abundantly clear that MS, given time and permission, would buy most third party publishers in order to outspend and remove the competition.

If this is something that you feel its ok or business as usual, then unfortunately you are not as genuine gamer as you claim to be.

It is in our best interest to stop these practices as the consolidation of the market will lock many people into ecosystems and previously enjoyed multiplayer games will be released exclusively under subscriptions.

Doesnt matter who does it (MS, Sony, Nintendo,Tescent Amazon etc), it only matters that we accelerate this process by not condoning such actions and by not voting with our wallets.

I cant believe that you support this attitude.

gold_drake16h ago

you're are absolutely right, it is business, but if said business is playing monopoly with a sort unending supply of money, it reeks corruption.

as if MS doesnt have enough of it already.

shinoff21837h ago

Obscure your in all the Sony articles making snide comments to. The hypocrisy is deep
