That MS conference was so boring. They had 3 games that appealed to me: Sea of Thieves, Halo Wars 2 and Us Happy Few and one of those will be coming to the PS4. I was not into Sea of Thieves last year, but seeing the gameplay from new players was so jolly. Very cool.
They announced the Xbox One S at the beginning of the show and killed it at the end. Who will by an Xbox One knowing it'll be obsolete next year? It's not a phone where you can get upgrades for free or cheap... it's an expensive endeavor. Why dump $300 into a console right now if you can wait til next year and get 4K gaming? Or worse still... why buy an Xbox One when you can play EVERY game on Windows 10? I don't get it. Am I missing something here?
EA - Abysmal.
Bethesda - Pretty cool although I doubt I'll play most of those games. Prey looked pretty sweet.
MS - Boring. Most games they showed were announced last year and among the new ones: Tekken 7, Forza Horizon 3, Zombie game 1, Zombie game 2 were not exciting. Final Fantasy XV was unfortunate. Minecraft? In 2016? At E3? Taking up that much time? Scalebound was not amazing. Recore was fine. I'm not a Gears guy. And all of the features they took time out of their conference to announce coming to Live have been on the PS4 for months and did not need conference time for. A blog post would have sufficed.
Sony would have to do some majorly stupid things to lose this E3.
Ok... I'm done ripping into them now.
I'll be back in 15 minutes for more.
