Surprised that some were negative about this show. I thought it was terrific, especially considering Covid.

Getting Flight Sim, Forza Horizon 5, Age of Empires 4, Halo Infinite and Psychonauts 2 all in 2021 is just absolute dynamite to me. Flight Sim and FH5 were the games I bought an XSX for so getting one in July with a fighter plane ugrade and the other for the holiday is huge. Halo SP not being shown was a little worrying, but that's the game I'm least interested in and the multiplayer looked good so whatever.

27 games on Gamepass day 1 is mad value

Let say on average $50 per game, that is $1350 worth of games!
Lot of interesting games coming to subscription. Im glad, i dont have to wait nd buy one or 2 games per year at 70$ price tag... I can try wide variety of games wit gamep pass

Well, its Xbox show, so hate and nitpicking about everything is normal. Lot of people forgot that covid is not a thing and game development takes time especially when studios are acquired 2 years ago. 2022-23 is the time when you will see big guns,till then you will see mix of tittles.

That was such a bad conference, literally full of fps and co-op party shooters.

Such a shame, once again I was hoping for something good from the bottom of my heart.

Sony and Nintendo will be the market leaders for years to come.
Xbox fan - Iam a shooter fan and i hate that Sony cant do good shooters or co-op/multiplayer games. Bad conference

PS Fan - Iam 3rd person cinemetic games fan and i hate Xbox dont do 3rd person cinematic sp only game - Bad conference

I don't know. If you play what Bond said backwards while hitting yourself over the head with a hammer, it almost sounds like Starfield is coming to PS5.
ahaha no it's 100% exclusive lol they just told us today ))) ahahah but that was nice

Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

So MS has announced AAA wise:

Fable
Perfect Dark
Halo Infinite
Forza Horizon 5
Redfall
Avowed
The Outer World's 2
A Plague's Tale 2
State of Decay 3
Hellblade 2
Everwild
Starfield
Psychonauts 2
Indiana Jones
Contraband
Wolfenstein 3

That's ALOT to look forward to.
Wolf 3 wasn't really officially announced. You have forget about Forza Motorsport, Project Mara and new Elders Scrolls. There are also studios that we still don't know what they are doing like InXile, Coalition, Id Software and Compulsion Games.

Lol yeah serve the crows I have to admit that I was wrong there, I really thought they wouldn’t do it but I guess they’re satisfied enough with Xbox, PC and cloud going forward.

Elder Scrolls VI will most likely be the same. MS has stopped playing around.

Just seen the show. I'd rate it a 8/10 if you are into Gamepass and 5/10 for bon Gamepass people. Halo and Forza were expected. But the fact that Microsoft didn't even have Starfield gameplay shows how far off most of their games are. We still haven't seen Hellblade 2 and Everwild properly with a gameplay demonstration. It seems it's best to just pick up an Xbox around 2023 unless you are a massive Halo or Forza fan. I expected Microsoft to not have as many gameplay demos for their first party game but not this less.

It's not possible to have an Hell blade 2 gameplay video. It's using Unreal Engine 5 that is not officially out.

Overall I thought it was a solid showing 7.5-8/10. STALKER 2 definitely stole the show for me and it was nice to see all of the game pass announcements like Back4Blood. Halo:Infinite still didn’t exactly blow me away, but it looks better than it did last year and it looks like a lot of fun. Really hoped to see more of the campaign, though. Finally getting a glimpse of Starfield was pretty awesome too. I’ve never really been a huge Forza fan, but Horizon 5 also looks incredible.

Sucks that we didn’t get to see games like Avowed, Perfect Dark, Fable, etc…but I knew what to expect heading into the conference. Those games a far out, and we pretty much already knew they wouldn’t have much to show this soon.

Kena looks better graphically than Halo - I wonder what the disparity in budget is 😁.
You didn't answer the question.

I could get into the differences in the game that means kena might look better but I rather you stick to the topic.

You sound upset. Maybe go and rewatch the presentation. Make yourself feel better about the world 🥳.

I sound upset? I asked a genuine question to see if you classify all indies as b releases. If you don't want to have a genuine conversation, that's on you.

For me it was an 8.5/10 the ending was the only thing I was disappointed with. The video was too long and it wasn't even gameplay. If anyone gives this show lower then a 5, they are a troll. Anyone gives this a 10 are crazy as well.

I'm not going to rate the show. I'm not interested in buying an Xbox.

Looks like Psychonauts and Forza Horizon are expected to carry 2021. That's not much. Everything else has a 2022 or 2023 timestamp.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. The MS rushed their launch. This has all the markings of a Holiday 2021 console. The 2022 dates are going to be missed by like half those games. Their 2022 is what Sony is pumping out in 2021. I can't believe they pitched Halo as a Holiday 2020 game. What kind of fucking pipedream was that? It might not even make 2021.

In a bid to prevent Sony from getting a headstart, they pretty much sold fans a lie, and that has to be abundantly clear right now. Don't blame COVID, this was a bait and switch, plain and simple. They could never have the games for 2020, even if there wasn't a pandemic. They were prepping BC games the whole time.

Anyway, Starfield, Forza Horizon, Replaced, and Somerville were games I want to see more of. The rest I don't much care for. I'm not an FPS fan, so some of the bigger names were lost on me. If you own an Xbox, I just hope you were satisfied with the presser.
Please Google bait and switch and post definition.

Xbox is catering to the same user base always has, same uninspiring games and random indies. Only the one where a family is part of the game caught my eye, Halo had a small improvement in the graphics department. Stalker looked good but it also coming to PS5. The show was better because it did not suck but the games at the show were not the best of the best. I would like to try Forza Horizon since it is located in Mexico. This is the first time i heard Todd Howard speak, and his voice put me off.
A big bummer no Hellblade nor project mara show, that sucked! we did not see either that alien game based on Giger designs.
His "voice" put you off? Come on man, like seriously? Lolol HIS VOICE????

Maybe i chose the wrong words, english is not my first language. But rephrasing it, hear him speak distracted me a lot. I thought some other video was playing in the back. Idk why. It is pretty silly i know. And it doesnot have to do with anything i just blurted it out.

It's all good man. I'll be the first to say I'm not a fan of Fallout, but i love me some Zenimax games though. I just think a voice making the show bad was funny. No worries buddy.
