This year everyone was very excited for Microsofts press conference for Electronic Expo 2016. However this reviewer feels that the best he can give them is a solid B. It also puts a bad taste in gamers mouths and wallets as they tease both, Xbox One S, and the Xbox Two (Scorpio).
This years showcase gave the complete degradation of its own IP. Why? Well for starters here is a short list:
- There are no console exclusive games- All games they are releasing are Both Windows and Xbox.
- Releasing a new Xbox System, while also announcing the replacement.
- Releasing peripherals that were stated to be completely customizable without buying new equipment.
- No need to buy a console.
The outline point for the press conference was, Windows, Windows, Windows. This seemed more like a Windows presentation than a console one. All of the games released were exclusives of the Windows Family, and continuously shoved down your throat. So why buy an Xbox One? Good question! At this junction we are still wondering the exact same thing.
The entire pace of the event was sluggish, and none of the presenters seemed to be excited about their product.
OVERALL RATING: B
What about the games?
Below is a list of games that they spoke about at this years event. Even though there wasn’t anything really new, that was not released prior to the show.
