I must admit I had a small (tiny) glimmer of hope for the next Elder Scrolls game... :-(

Sunday was a good day. You want games, you got games. They may not be true exclusives by definition but they exist. I can't see how ANY gamer in their right mind would want to say shit about the XoX, who can't love a console that's abbreviation is love? It's powerful, it's got the UHD Drive and it's clearly pushing for legit 4K HDR.

Long ago (by leaking NEO plans nearly 2 1/2 years before actual release date) Sony responded to gamers complaints about poor graphics and framerates with the Pro and now Microsoft has responded to that in an even bigger way. The clowns that legitimately thought the original Xbox One bundle with a Kinect and far too many 720p games was a good deal should reconsider an upgrade.

Good on Microsoft for making an substantial effort. I may indeed pre-order the XoX just to play those rare few online games I might want.

@PETERAKO: Unfortunately it even seemed Andromeda was a lot more combat focused and realtime focused, which is why my wife skipped it, it's too bad. Dodged bullet anyway though.

@alaannn: I've been playing modded instances of Bethesda games since Morrowind and have never gotten even close to reaching the limit. Plus, if it really bothers you, you can merge ESPs together quite easily.

@alaannn: I see no reason why it shouldn't work on consoles too. Unless Bethesda's system would get in the way of it somehow. Can't you upload private mods to the service for personal use?

EDIT: Oh, I think I understand now. You're referring to the arbitrary limitations for each console platform that have nothing to do with the 8-bit limit imposed by the game itself. I remember now.

EDIT2: That sucks.

Omitting the obvious hardware showcase, Bethesda's conference might actually be more exciting than Microsoft's.

@videogameninja: MS had a bunch of reveals but not for stuff that'd end up only on their system. But for all the games they showed I didn't see much that would appeal to me, I still notice a heavy absence of Japanese games (DBZ and Coee Vein and that's it), JRPGs, and RPGs in general... There was an MMO but who cares, also not enough single player stuff for me (apart from indies)

They did have scariest moment of the day when some esports guy was live announcing pretaped footage, and then faded into the darkness

Here's the full games list: http://bit.ly/2rawvht

I'm surprised Bethesda had enough for a full show, and they did OK, but I'm not seeing anything new so far that has me itching to put up preorder money

@girlusocrazy: I think the announcer guy (Jethro Tull.) definitely raised more than a few eyebrows. Don't think his presence had the effect Microsoft was hoping for though.

@videogameninja: Jethro Tull? That was actually his name? lol

@videogameninja: Bethesda definitely has me excited. Microsoft had some great stuff too. I still haven't got a Switch, so now I'm kinda leaning towards putting that money towards a OneX. My backlog is going to crush me now.
