Thank you Xbox for saving this game from development Hell.

This is what contributing to gaming looks like.

Keep doing this. THIS is good for competition. *This* is good for all gamers, regardless of platform.

They're partnering with Xbox I would hope they would get them out of Developmental hell.

Hope the game turns out great though.

They’ve not gone through development hell, they live in a country that has been invaded, they’ve lost devs to an ongoing war effort. It’s a complete miracle this game is even coming out

That sounds like development Hell?

This game 100% would not be releasing without support, which they got from Xbox.

I wish Xbox made more games over the past decade, or any at all, but seeing them help this game exist gives me hope.

I recognize a few of those locations! Excited for this game is an understatement.

I can't wait until it releases on PS5. I've been wanting to get into this game.

3-6 month exclusive depending on which leak you believe but it could take longer. That’s ok though it will give time to work out the bugs and give me time for my backlog which is never ending

do you reply the exact same thing to all STALKER 2 articles?

I think everyone was really expecting to see the handheld at the showcase. I have a feeling they're not ready to show it because they're waiting on newer chips from AMD. It'll need a beefy mobile GPU/CPU to play these games. If I had to guess, it'll launch alongside Gears of War: E-Day and have a special launch edition.

If they can launch something like the Steam Deck but with the Xbox UI and a lightweight, gaming-focused version of Windows, it could be a real contender in that space. Especially if they can adopt some of the modularity of the Elite controllers. Easily swap sticks, triggers, buttons, custom shells, etc.

I'd love a Xbox handheld & for me new upgraded hardware is always welcomed but honestly not really neccessary for Xbox until next gen because face it, if you really care, PC is a natural option.

I was expecting real gameplay for fable, perfect dark and extensive look at avowed....didn't care about a handheld from Xbox at all.

Good showing all in all though

Damned if you do. Damned if you don't.

Just to put things into perspective, when Sony put a slim PS5 out there they redesigned the console and made the drive modular. They at least put some effort into it. Finally, a year later Microsoft just pulls the drive out and calls it a day. In that time Sony has readied a PS5 Pro to add insult to injury.

Don’t forget a price increase.

Though to be fair a PS5 pro is an absolute confounding waste. Might as well go PS6 in a couple of years instead.

This gen sucks.

Whether your plan on buying one or not, the thing is that PS is running circles around Xbox in the hardware department.

It really comes down to price. The new S is the same but the series X with the extra terabyte is way overpriced.
I guess they justified $599 on the fact if you bought a regular X and upgraded the memory with a Seagate or WD external drive it would be the same or slightly cheaper. But internal memory bought in bulk couldn’t have added that much cost to the box.

Personally I wanted the show to be about games and it delivered! The crazy part is that we still have so many games under development by all companies!

Nintendo has a direct coming (probably more ports though) and an upcoming console early next year with a presumably stellar line up of launch games

Sony has already delivered highly rated third party games
Helldivers 2
FF7 Rebirth
Rise of Ronin
Stellar Blad
with more to come (Astro Bot, Silent Hill 2 Remake etc) in 2024 and many many more in 2025!

Xbox showed many good games and still has many to be revealed or showcased

Clockwork Revolution
Outer Worlds 2
OD (Kojima Project)
Project Mara
Project Maverick
Elders Scrolls 6
Fallout 5

We also have dozens of third party games announced this summer so I personally think that we have enough software to carry us throughout 2024-2025.

As for portable hardware, there are numerous options of handheld PCs that play PC/Xbox/Sony games (Steamdeck OLED, Asus Rog Ally X, Lenovo Legion Go etc) and thus It did not bother me that MS did not announce one.

They probably reserve the reveal for a more hardware centric event

The Zone is what you consider it to be. I've shown you how I see it. Walk your own path, and you will come to perceive the Zone in your own way.

This is shaping up to be really good ... cheeks-breeki can't come soon enough
