Tuesday, June 12
and ends on Thursday, June 14
Stolen from Resetera..


On Major Nelson's podcast last month. Around the ~1h4m mark.

The full quote: "I don’t think we’ve talked about yet, but I think will be some positive changes at E3. Could be fun for us. It’ll be a nice change."

Makes sense. Only marketing deal we expect is with Anthem. Might not be playable. Only playable games from MS this E3 might be Forza Horizon 4 and Crackdowns multiplayer. Will be interesting to see if they show Perfect Dark or Fable considering both are a minimum of 3 years away.

Been rumors Microsoft may innovate with Mixer and I wonder if they’ll try to leverage Mixer for their E3 for demos and audience interaction.

Well I think there is some confusion. The floor space does not equate to their E3 press conference. It is also separate from their Xbox fan show that they put on as well.

They will probably announce a bunch of games but they probably won't be ready to be playable on the show floor. Of course I would have seen the same thing last year and their small booth did fairly represent how little they had to show at their conference.

Surprised at the size of Capcom and Epic

I think they showed off like 45 upcoming playable games at E3 2017 presentation. They had more to show than the competition. With a booth that was substantially smaller.

Yeah they did show a lot of multiplatform games but that has nothing to do with them and their booth. Obviously Anthem wouldn't be at their booth.

It's not the size, but how deep you can hammer lootboxes.

They showed off a lot of exclusive and multiplatform, but none of that has to do with their booth apparently if they don't have enough playable demos to fill said booth.

Those at the show last year said Sony' booth was massive, to find out that it was mostly Destiny 2.
Thread is about Microsoft. Try to stay on topic. Thanks.

He didn't really say much, though, did he. "Positive changes." "Could be fun for us."

Um, okay.

No, he didn't say much. But its around now and March that all the E3 stuff starts to leak, so I figured why not. If people want to talk Xbox E3. I would love to do a bingo card here too.

I see; you're just getting the thread rolling. Yeah, hard to believe another E3 is a few months away.

Yeah, that's probably not good. You'll be soaking in a puddle of your own juices by March, and by April, you'll have fungus.

Almost sounds like tempering expectations.
And that a dangerous game he is playing. They better be more careful on what they say because people expectation and really go off the charts instead sticking with reality.

If true, that would be a huge surprise. Pretty sure a community manager or 343 said recently that we won't see THAT Halo news this year.

IMO no Halo this year would be gross mismanagement. ...unless it leads to 2 Halos next year.
