Well that sounds boring, let's hope that's not the case.

THE OPPOSITE IS GONNA HAPPEN, RIGHT?

#3 Posted by Krelian-co (10208 posts) -

It probably will but Pachter is still a joke.

Imagine that bait and switch.

Labels it game centric: only shows gears and Halo with some Forza horizon 2.

Rest of the time is spent talking about television content, exclusive shows and how much of a good decision they made with dropping the kinect bundle and how well it's doing for them.

So what if they do talk about TV.

I don't remember cows complaining when Sony talked about TV and movies at E3 last year.

#11 Posted by farrell2k (5578 posts) -

I wouldn't be surprised. They still don't realize that people buy video game consoles to play games. People have TVs with all this netflix and streaming shit already built in. Why do they need an xbox to watch tv? I am so glad that I am now 100% Microsoft free. The company is an abomination.

M$ has the fanboys scared as hell...SMH, pitty the fools.

#14 Posted by High-Res (271 posts) -

No way, I would be really shocked if they even mention the word "TV"..

If it is mentioned or promoted again like last year than they truly have lost touch with their Audience.

Pachter usually TROLLS for hits but this video was really good and he made some good points. Lol @ the neckbeards on here who hate on him while he rolls in the cash he makes from them talking about him

Microsoft should sort the games out. They need it to combat Sony's dominance at the moment.

#17 Posted by DerekLoffin (8744 posts) -

Confirmed best E3 evar (since, you know Pachter is always wrong). Grats Lems :).

#18 Posted by Vatusus (4341 posts) -

After the bashing MS received at the X1 unveil? Highly doubt it'll make the same mistake twice...

Patcher is an idiot

#19 Edited by lamprey263 (22629 posts) -

I thought an MS rep stated that this E3 was gonna be all about games. I figure they'd of learned from the criticisms of not being a gaming focused console that non-gaming features should probably be announced outside of E3.

If they go on about non-gaming features they'll get criticized heavy for it, even if they talk about it just a little bit the cow army of journalists and bloggers will jump all over it, nevermind if Sony said something about photo and music features on PS4 they'd get a free pass. It's a shitty gaming industry double standard but that's that.

MS doesn't want a repeat of last year, which honestly I believe they set themselves up for it announcing the $400 SKU, since they announced it ahead of time that gives Sony lots of time to react. All Sony has to do to make a repeat of last year is slash their price $10, then the post E3 bullet points is Xbox One still weaker, still more expensive, and has less exclusive games. Then they'll spend many months doing damage control trying to dispel that notion.

TV,TV,Television, Call of Duty...

#21 Posted by santoron (7622 posts) -

Good news for XBox fans as long as the Pachter Rule holds true.

#22 Posted by ninjapirate2000 (2997 posts) -

So that pretty much confirms that MS will show nothing about TV. Pachter was so smug in that video.

#23 Edited by Shewgenja (8296 posts) -

It's gonna be all about games since Pachter never predicts anything correctly.

IF Pachter manages to get this one right, though, we will see the true Mass Lem Extinction foretold in the Golden Book of Gaming Wonders.

#24 Posted by Crypt_mx (3947 posts) -

LOL so let me get this staight...

MS announced the Xbox One and talked about TV....everyone hated it.

MS came out swinging with X1 games last E3, a very successful MS E3 that most Xbox fans were happy with.

MS has stated that this E3, like the last one will be all about games

But despite that, they are going to show up and show all TV stuff.... how does that make sense.

Why would MS see what has failed, see what works, lie to us about it and then show up and give us more of what they know we don't want? That has to be the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Patcher should feel bad for this article, and any Sony fanboy who's using this as an opportunity to hate needs to get their head out of their ass and realize it's BS. You can't jump on every MS hate train just because you're a Sony fan, they at least have to make sense.

#25 Posted by Ribnarak (2282 posts) -

i honestly think for ms to succeed at E3, they should show a lot of games while also not mentioning or giving much time to: Halo, gears, forza, madden, cod.

its time for a change, bring on new things. Don't keep going and relying on the past.

#26 Posted by Netherscourge (16328 posts) -

I'm expecting some sort of "Eco System" motif, with Windows PC/Surface + Windows Phone + Xbox One all oozing between one another.

Because, what else do they have?

#27 Edited by remiks00 (1626 posts) -

I think they will mention TV at least briefly. But I think they will show a lot of games. They may not exactly all be exclusive titles though.

#28 Edited by lamprey263 (22629 posts) -

It's worth noting Pachter didn't say it'd be all about TV, he saidhis "assumptions" are that it won't be 100% about games.

"I don't really think they'll spend as much time on games as most people at E3 would like them to, which would be 100% of the time. I think they're going to spend some time talking about original content on Xbox One that you can't get anywhere else, which means television program type content."

It's interesting though the reasons he gives for this. Mainly in that E3 is a highly covered event by non-gaming media groups who are likely going to write positive things about the Xbox One and relate to it in a way that they're viewership can appreciate.

It's amazing though Pachter's reputation for predictions, though on camera though he tends to appear a lot more thoughtful.

In other words Spencer bold faced lied. Sure because their public image can take that beating at this point.

#30 Edited by Idontremember (926 posts) -

That means they won't talk about TV much, except for that Halo project.

First E3 with Spencer seems promising.

This indeed, Spencer already said it's all about games, as if they are going to talk mostly about entertainment...

#32 Posted by PurpleMan5000 (6807 posts) -

Hopefully they show some Halo single player footage.

#33 Posted by MonsieurX (29172 posts) -

Quoting Pachter here should have the same effect as quoting vgchartz

#34 Posted by Heil68 (43172 posts) -

Hopefully they show some Halo single player footage.

I would like that as well,

#35 Posted by PurpleMan5000 (6807 posts) -

An Xbox 360 price drop would also be a welcome announcement.

@Couth_:

I think he only trolls. This man makes an extremely nice living telling big wigs what he thinks is going to happen. Why in the name of god would he be so stupid as to give that away for free via youtube?

I don't have any idea how good he is at his job, but when he is making these videos he is not doing his job. He would be a major idiot if he was.

@RR360DD: TV isn't even available in the UK for you.

TV is available in Spain, UK, US, Italy, France, Germany and maybe some other countries...

Halo 4 set sales records for a single console title.

Every company has its big pillar games.

Microsoft has Halo, GoW, Forza, etc

Sony has Uncharted, God of War, Gran Turismo, etc

Nintendo has, well, practically everything it releases lol.

But people still love these games.

Ignoring them would simply be stupid, plus we already know both MS and Sony will be discussing brand new IPs.

As for the original post, there is no way MS is going to be that stupid. They know how poorly their original unveiling went and went full 180 at last E3. A repeat of the unveiling would be unimaginable.

I can not flippin wait lulz m$ will make a fool of them selves again n talk about tv tv tv sports sports halo show halo show TV TV kinect again lulz. u don't need to be patcher or whoopy Goldberg to know m$ will show no games more than sony imho facts sony already won e3

#43 Posted by Bruin1986 (1196 posts) -

Hopefully they show some Halo single player footage.

Despite how much I'd like for this to happen, I highly doubt we will see any first-person perspective gameplay.

The game is still over a year from launch.

We'll probably see an "in-engine trailer" or something to that effect.

#44 Posted by ReadingRainbow4 (13049 posts) -

I actually really wish that Shenmue rumor for xbone was real.

Someone has to do it, at this point I don't care who anymore.

patcher is fucking idiot. learned that long time ago

#49 Posted by FoxbatAlpha (6027 posts) -

Shows how out of touch Patcher really is.

#50 Posted by xhawk27 (7205 posts) -

I think they might touch of some things non-game related but the majority will be Games. Like Sony is going to touch on non-gaming related stuff too.
