Microsoft has more exclusives to announce after E3

Executive Phil Spencer says E3 show is "all about games," and teases more reveals for Gamescom in August.

by

Microsoft's Electronic Entertainment Expo showing next week won't include everything the publisher has to offer. Executive Phil Spencer has said on Twitter that the company has more Xbox exclusives to announce after the show and potentially during Gamescom in August.

"E3 show is all games but we'll still have more exclusives to announce post E3," Spencer said (via VG247). "I expect GamesCom to be a good event."

Microsoft previously said it would show off the "next chapter" of Xbox during Gamescom, set to take place in Cologne, Germany August 22-25. The company skipped last year's event.

The Xbox maker has 15 Xbox One exclusives in development, eight of which are all-new franchises.

Spencer also continued to tease that Microsoft will make a surprising Xbox 360 announcement during E3 next week.

"Definitely have an announce that no one has guessed," Spencer said. "Let me know after the show if it was a surprise."

Spencer first talked about this Xbox 360 announcement last month after the Xbox One announcement event. At the time, he explained that the Xbox 360 has many years of life left.

"I think the [Xbox 360] is going to be very vibrant for many years. In fact, we have a huge, I think it's huge, [Xbox 360] announcement for E3 that I keep wanting to talk about, but I can't," Spencer said. "I think it will surprise people."

The company earlier this week announced Fable Anniversary for the Xbox 360.

Microsoft's E3 2013 briefing takes place Monday, June 10 at 9:30 a.m. PDT. GameSpot will be on-hand at the event.

Microsoft buying more "exclusives" in addition to allegedly paying publishers to not show their games at the Sony press conference. There is no low they won't stoop to.

The sheer arrogance on display since the Xbox One was revealed is astounding. The only way they'll succeed is by throwing even more billions of dollars into over saturating the airwaves with advertising to drown out anyone else and prey upon those won't don't know any better regarding the Xbone's anti-consumer and monopolistic strategies of complete control of both consumers and all businesses surrounding their console. (And the PC is next)

I feel bad for anyone that picks up an Xbone day one.  Imagine spending hundreds of dollars to get the Xbone, hundreds more for a small library of games and then the system goes the way of the Dreamcast in a year or two.

Unlike the dreamcast, which I can still plug in to play Sonic and crazy-taxi, the Xbone would turn into a brick incapable of ever playing any game ever again.

I wonder how awful their exclusives will be compared to the PS4? Considering the fact that it recently was announced that microsoft had to Underclock their GPU because it was overheating. Making it roughly 30% less powerful due to the underclocking.

ps2 beat the original xbox becuase of exclusives, xbox 360 beat ps3 becuase it was cheaper, now ps4 beats xbox one becusae its cheaper, more powerful, and has better exclusives. (along with many more problems which i will not mention here.

Those morons would have freaked out after seeing what Sony did with the LAST OF US.They would have compared the exclusives what they have at hand to that of SONY.If they really have some great exclusives they should show it at E3 instead of backing off to Gamescom

The big E3 announcement for the 360 will be the return of Blinx the Time Sweeper! You heard it here first!

They could announce Dark Souls 3, Banjo Threeie, motherf***in' Monster Hunter 5 -all exclusive to X1- for all I care. No game in the world is going to make me even consider getting an Xbox One.

better not be mostly Kinetic games since they all s*ck, especially the ones that were released for the 360.

I really do not care about the exclusives at this point. MS needs to regain me as a potential XBOX One customer. Until then they can fuck off.

15 exclusives... Argh! It's too bad I won't get to enjoy any of them. Damn you, M$. I don't care how many exclusives you dangle in front of me. I'm not f______ checking in every 24 hours like some ex-con. 

I purchased every single 360 game I have. How dare you treat me (and the rest of us) like criminals? You can keep your creepy heartrate recording/room scanning/spybox/always wired to the Man's mainframe device.

No matter what Xbox1 has to offer, they will not get my cash.  The company seems more poised to control players gameplay than to give the freedom players deserve and respect.  Should be titled controlbox.  Sony I will once again be in your corner.  Loving what you are offering.  Shame because I own all 3 at the moment; PS3, PC and Xbox360.  I love the choice with all them but the next gen will have minus 1 for me.

Xbox one day one buy for me great features and games well be out of this world like on any gaming console or pc... ppl this is a product nothing more  nothing less if don’t agree with this products restrictions and they are an inconvenience for you then like any other product don't buy it ..But to sit here wasting your time trying to make everybody believe what you want them to, is just silly and won’t work...just like it doesn't work with the COD games but all site have nothing to say  about cod but bad things when it comes to the views  comments.. so I’m not shocked at all the hate for the Xbox one all around the internet ppl be smart and make up your own mind about Xbox one and think do these restrictions inconvenience you if not watch E3 and see if the games are to your licking but if they aren’t, don’t buy it but why wine about it on sites it’s your choice nobody else....

If the Killer Instinct rumors come true. I may be interested, just for that alone. Otherwise... I have no high hopes for anything on xbox one.

Xbone vs. consumers.... Microsoft needs to stop treating there customers like crap, they should have learned that DRM is not the right way to go look at simcity and diablo 3. You may fool people one maybe twice, but I hope people have learned there lesson now. Take those 2 screw ups with all the games that will come out with the xbone and you have your answer about how this "entertainment" box will be... big pile of poo.

@Detroman does the article matter?  More exclusive games announced that I'm still going to get screwed on?  And they throw around "exclusives" when that can mean anything from only dl, timed exclusives, greatest hit collectio

 The word exclusive doesn't impress me anymore, until they tell me what it is.  Sony does this too.

@Honnets x360 beat ps3 this generation because of the gamer centric and larger exclusives during the first 5 yrs run. Then it turn to complete shit the last 2 yrs, not saying its bad, as there are a few golden gems pop-in from their indie team. *shows that someone in the studio know what is important*


I m seriously hoping developers will continue to support x360 for the next 3-5yrs.

@obsequies That was 3 generation ago, the N64 and PS1 werent even close on power and they were very differant console. Now the XBone and the PS4 are very similar so it's normal there is more multi console games (name 5 multiconsole game during the N64/PS1 era)

@MJ-X   That has been known a LONG time. Also:

Every phone call (whether cell phone or land line), email, websites you visit, keystrokes you make, your shopping,  is recorded and analyzed  Ever heard of ECHELON?

Please PPL be smart. Dont place an always on full HD 1080p infrared camera (with microphone)  in the center of your living room. Privacy is dead in the US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

@Akijo @obsequies I never said anything about the 64 at all. I'm comparing console exclusives from old to the modern. It's pathetic. When consoles becomes more like pc's they loose their purpose. What does "power" have to do with anything...that doesn't even make sense to bring that up.

@GageofRen @MJ-X Old and it can't watch you if it's not ON. You can turn off all the monitoring features anyways. This doesn't bother me that much. The used game policy and DRM pisses me off more then this Kinect monitoring.

@obsequies lack of exclusives have nothing to do with power of the machine.  Developers just get more money putting it on all consoles.

@blackace @GageofRen @MJ-X My only issue is that, it's always connected to the console so surely there is power going through it at all times so will technically be on. Now unless it's powered separately then fair enough. But I am not so sure, I don't care tbh if it is or not, but still it seems strange that something that can supposedly be so easy to stop and switch off, yet can't be disconnected at any time. That and they said you can turn it off but it can still respond to "XBOX ON" is a joke.
