Spicer said 22 exclusives are coming to Xbox. They announced Forza 7 and Assassin's Creed Origins (which is not exclusive) so far.

I almost threw up when they announced another Assasins Creed. How many must they shove down our throats? How many is there, like 10 now?

Metro Exodus however looks great.

Was that the one before Creeds? I missed the name, it looked kinda Bioshocky, haha. It was cool.

The people on mixer chat are way too excited, they can see graphics that PC has had for ages.

There's not much i can appreciate at the minute. I understand it benefits some but nothing amazing atm.

Plus even though UHD the graphics still are limited e.g. very cartonish and vectorised.

Happy with though especially compared to competition, have always been a xbox fan, just hope they mention VR then i will be happy.

bit of an overreaction to a game announcement.

It is a successful franchise, they will keep coming until it isn't successful.

Anything about VR in the announcement?

Would be really amazed if there is going to be one mate. They already announced the Scorpio/X1X. Now all are games.

Really disappointed with the appearance. I wanted it to come with an Xbox One S Elite controller and showcase something new on that front given that the One S pad has been around for over a year now and the elite has the bumper problems.
Looks similar to the One S console too, I was hoping for something that looked gratuitous!
Will I buy it? Maybe...

Think that was the only game worth looking, yeah. The rest are not that good looking tbh.

I get bored of games too easily, apart from one or two games the only thing that has really wowed me is trying the oculus rift, only got a shot of the climbing game but as I like to climb in real life I was impressed by it.

To be honest, I was expecting to see something cool looking too (appearance). I guess they have cut on certain things too put the costs down so more people could afford it. It is basically a smaller version of X1 S case in black colour. But oviously more powerful.

Everyone watching it through mixer on xbox will receive a free goodie bag with games and dlcs

Will games still work on the older one?

They should call it Oxo

Spicer said yes but the best performance will be on X obviously. Looking at what they are announcing exclusively, I don't think there is much of difference between either of the consoles to play them.

What is it spec wise comparable to in PC land?

Same here i only play occasional multiplayer rarely. But like VR as can get into games a lot more and learn to make quick games and experiences on PC e.g. Unity. Then just the other experiences like you said climbing and exploration, horror experiences etc, just all takes it to a new level of immersion. Just they said it will be cheap at $299 i think, so hoping.

What a bloated figure of 22 exclusives. Sony store is filled with such indie exclusives. Here we will launch the most powerful gaming console... Followed by all these previous gen graphics games.

Yes what does it closely resemble in PC terms?

Seems a good choice. X) Did you see the Life is Strange announcement? Fairly exciting.

Yeah and Crimson Skies was also mentioned. Had to order a copy right now, lol. They priced the console at $499. That is probably equal to £499...

Cost me 2 quid mate, just ordered off eBay. Unless you are talking about Xbox One X... (Pulling your leg, yeah I just bought an S recently, no way of upgrading until a good few years). I am happy with what Sony offers anyway.

I've got the original 1tb model. Planned to go Scorpio. This anthem game looks good

I am surprised at the lack of 'killer' exclusives. I'd thought I would at least see one on level of Uncharted graphics quality.

Also gloated about their BC program but I would have thought making the Xbox One X backwards compatible with all games would be a good reason to buy but nope, they are doing original Xbox games now.

Anthem screams destiny but man the frostbite engine is amazing.

Cuphead has a release date! Finally!

4k Minecraft...yay?

Ori made me sad.

I don't think they sold it very well. Considering the specs are much better than Pro and their new headset is supposed to be MR rather than VR, I should be envious. But I didn't feel a pang. I wonder why the headset wasn't shown?

Don't think it was a bad conference overall. Pleased about the oXBOX BC, they need to get SEGA on the phone, make sure their stuff makes the jump sooner rather than later. And the Ori sequel is very welcome news, even if we did already know it was happening

They really needed to bring it in terms of exclusive software though, but it was the usual suspects; Forza, State of Decay 2, Sea of Thieves... No real surprises, even the Indie stuff like Tacoma and Cuphead (still loving how it looks) were old news. Spencer said 22 exclusives, when it reality there were about 6. Everything else was timed. I don't think Sony or Nintendo will have much of a problem "beating" what we saw today in terms of games.

Price too high on the Scorpio unfortunately, I had hoped they'd sell it at £399 and tried to play for mind-share. Instead they've got the chequebook out for timed exclusivity... not sure how well that's worked for them in the past...

Definitely a bit of a let down with the name, Scorpio was much better imo!

£449 apparently ... get your purse out.

That was lackluster. There was nothing there that looked better then Horizon Zero Dawn. Only games that looked interesting were Forza, Metro, Ori and Anthem. 2 of them are multiplatform. Just read that its also gonna be £450...
