Loved everything they showed. They definitely nailed it again.

Can't wait for HW2. Should shape up nice when it releases on PC too.

Sony wins, again. Xbox does have weak exclusive games.

@sambr: LOL

That's your personal opinion. I prefer XB1 exclusives. Doesn't make MS win though.

Nice show if you havent watched the E3 already!

Still,few things i liked personally:

-Launchdate of QB...gameplay looked technically very good and the story should be great.
-Gameplay of Scalebound... japanese action RPG...NICE
-The fact that many Win10 PC games will come to the X1
-And of course my favorite "and before we close the show,we have something to show you" :-)
Halo Wars 2 comes to Win10 and X1 and will probably be crossplattform.

That brings me to a possible support for M&K for the X1 next year.

Halo Wars 2? Did that game really need a sequel? Also CA's last Xbox RTS game was Stormrise.

I don't know, of all the things they could have done with Halo, I'm not sure doubling down on trying to get Halo Wars and console RTS games right is really the best play. I'm all for trying new things, but this has been tried before and it's never really worked. : \

Hopefully this one will at least be on the PC.

I have seen sony's line-up and i must say the xbox is truly the best console for games. All the time people who have been putting the console down because it as strong as sony console just ate their words today. Look people the x1 is truly the only next-gen console on the market and the graphics for the most part are on par with the ps4 however the games are a lot cooler on the x1.

@blackamerica: Microsoft doesnt get to trendy or worry about every game being the best looking. They care about gameplay and other aspects of the game. Dont get me wrong graphics are nice but if its at cost of having good fundamentals in the game then id rather have sub par graphics and great gameplay and mechanics then a great looking game but the game gets old in like 2hours cuz its repetitive and stale. ultimately if you want great graphics go to PC gaming.

@coolmastaj: i make no argument against that at all. i use to like some of the ps game on the system but after time they just stop making them. same with some of the xbox games as well, so with that said Microsoft is just doing a better job for at this point keeping gaming interesting with some fresh idea's on it. not saying that sony doesn't have great games because they do as well, but they just seem to be buying 3rd party tittles instead of trying to keep it fresh.

@zinten:sorry you feel that way but i don't have to defend the console at this point, they doing a great job making everyone see that they wrote them off way to soon, just to hope on the sony train. sony so far hasn't had a breakout game and the ones they using to try keep head are all third party like street fighter.

@flyincloud1116: I don't think Halo Wars is just 'another Halo', it's a completely different style of game that this gen so far has not had the pleasure of experiencing. Although I'm not as into c&c style games as I used to be, I appreciate the shit out of them.

Let me guess, daddy was a Sega fan and you have to finish the war he started?

@rasterror: You can always count on xbox Zealots to freak their sh1t out when someone just reiterates whatever Microsoft just did. Especially to other Xbox One owners.. You're like cannibals.
