MS E3 2019 full of mixed messages and backtracking on previous statements?

In 2017 Phil Spencer confidently proclaimed Xbox would always have the most powerful system going forward. They also announced a 2 tier SKU model for next gen xbox systems. So, what happened?

BOTH of those particular key points from MS's most recent press event are absent!

I'm sure most of us were waiting to hear about MS's 2 SKU versions and "Anaconda", but there was only Scarlet and IT was called there most powerful system? Wait what?

Also instead of saying, "It's the most powerful next gen system ever" Phil said, "it's the most powerful system WE ever made." Well no shit it better be for a so-called next gen system.

Did Phil just forget to mention them or have they backtracked on those statements because of uncertainty about those moves of because of recent Sony announcements?

Is Scarlet and Anaconda still a thing? Is Xbox's, "Will ALWAYS be the most powerful" still relevant?

Should be obvious but it's next E3 where all the specifics would be revealed. Why would they show their whole hand this early? Did Phony? Of course not.... Sheeesh, I'd think you should be in no hurry to hear all about Super Mighty 8K Anaconda MegaMonsterBox that puts the PS Jive to shame. lol :P

@SecretPolice: So PS5 needs to be shown 1st?

I gues next gen does start when Sony says it.

Yeah, it's just a couple of the many reasons why lems are squirming right now and in full damage control mode after E3. MS messed up, plain and simple. And they had a great chance to show they had turned things around. Perfect chance, even. What this E3 shows is that MS simply have no idea of what they are doing in the video game business. Lol, all Sony had to do to steal E3 from them was say a few words about the PS5, making MS look like they were just copying Sony with the Scarlett announcement. The only difference is MS paid a ton of money to say basically the same things.

I don't see why Xbox has to do these early reveals at all. Didn't help X1X much, and all it did was kill Xbox One sales up until its release. MS has to be put in a position to talk about new hardware every show now because obviously the games alone aren't gonna cut it anymore. The Xbox conferences are just pretty much Game Pass shows now, with the odd indie buyout.

@Ant_17:

Don't recall posting anything saying PS5 needs to go first only said the obvious, specifics didn't come from MS or Sony at this early time and that's to be expected, right?

Perhaps a reread of my post is not only necessary but it's a " would read again post" if I don't say so myself. lol ;)

@SecretPolice: It sounded like since PS5 wasn't shown Bone 2 shouldn't be shown as well.

@BenjaminBanklin:

Hardware wise, It seems to me, really, the most anyone should have took away from this is that both MS and Sony Revealed, they will offer a more powerful next gen console next year and not much more on specifics which again is the wise move and to be expected at this time.

MS has a weaker system again and no games for next gen. Phil has done no better than Donnie M.

@boxrekt: I always think 2 tire consoles are not fast enough. Obviously having four tires is preferable.

Are you just another insecure xbot drone who goes into personal attack mode whenever someone posts a relevant topic asking questions about MS and xbox? Are you too stupid to post on the actual topic instead of defection and damage control?

Next time on...Another Exposed Lemming.

I mean...do they know how "strong" the PS5 is? if they said the next xbox is the strongest console ever and it wasn't so, you and a bunch of rabid idiots would jump down their throats.

I don't care about that, but did they show an insane number of exclusives like they said they were?
