I see, so it's basically the idea that EA is pushing games on to a demographic that doesn't care, and the demographic that DOES care doesn't actually WATCH E3.

Like trying to sell Beer at a Children's Birthday Party.

Microsoft had a great conference - the first time I've ever said that. They've really taken a cue from Sony's 2016 and 2017 conferences in terms of just showing games, I wasn't bored.

The two low points were the voice acted "chatting" fake advertising bullshit from the Division 2 trailer (which is Ubisoft's fault) and the Gears of War funko pop tease but that was "fixed" with the "actual" Gears 5 trailer.

It was neat to see Kingdom Hearts there too.

Coming off EA it was godly

Yeah, Microsoft fucking NAILED IT ON ALL LEVELS. Fingers crossed that SE & Sony can step up to this, and not be wallowing in the ballpit with EA.

Square definitely won't top it in terms of presentation but Sony can if they don't go too deep on their 4 exclusives and stick to the format they developed over the past two years. A 5-7 minute segment is all we need from the 4 actual exclusives they've announced they're showing, but I'm not sure what else they could "world premiere" after MS seems to have paid for the rights to show all those games off first

MS obviously still have that issues of announcing "EXCLUSIVE" when none of them are actually exclusive because they can all be played on PC, and there's some dubiousness around them doing the "WORLD PREMIERE" thing with titles that are third party and also releasing on PS4 (and not mentioning that they're multiplat) - but it was still a fantastic conference.

I'm still shocked that they just casually slipped in 'a new Xbox' into the convo like that. I mean, we all know they plan / work on new consoles all the time ... but isn't it far too early to even mention that?

But yeah, strong showing from Microsoft.

Go to 3:17:01 for Brandon Jones's (and my own) thoughts on the Bethesda conference.

YouTube Video


He absolutely nails it.

I thought the SE showcase was supposed to be 1 hour? Was that misreported?

At the very least, Sony's gonna have four major games I'm massively interested in/excited about, even if they're not gonna do VII and it's dead forever
