Congrats to @bigjeffrey for winning the Xbox banner vote. He had a narrow victory over aurahack's VHS banner which took 2nd place. bigjeffrey actually also tied for 3rd place (Sunset Overdrive banner) with face15's animated Xbox bomb.

The Official E3 2014 Microsoft Press Conference Discussion

There's a new sheriff in town.

It's officially E3 time, duders! If you haven't experienced the insanity of E3 before, the show starts off with press conferences from each of the three console makers as well as a few of the largest publishers in the industry. These presentations are prime real estate for game announcements, debut trailers, live gameplay demonstrations, and meme origins.

In an attempt to keep the E3 shenanigans organized, the mods institute these official discussion threads for each conference so that everybody has a go-to place to discuss them before, during, and after the show.

Keep Discussions On Topic

This thread is exclusively for the general discussion of the Microsoft press conference. Only discussion of the Microsoft press conference is allowed. Discussion involving the other company's conferences should be taken to their respective threads (once they're posted). And don't even think about going off-topic or derailing the thread with your predictions on who Jon Snow’s mom is.

Specific Announcements

Sneak peak!

E3 is THE place for announcing never before seen games. It's exciting, fast-paced stuff and we're all enthusiastic to start talking about all the new toys. But, please keep in-depth discussions about specific games in their respective forums. For more information about how to help us keep things organized, go check out the E3 2014 and You! thread.

To help you get where you need to go to talk about anything announced or shown during this press conference, we have created a list of them right here:

Despite the insanity of E3, keep in mind that the general site rules still apply. So, don't be a dick. If you need a refresher on to conduct yourself like an upstanding citizen of the Giant Bomb community, check out the FAQ.

Where Can I Watch?

If you know of any others, let me know!

Thanks for the info! I don't even have an Xbox one, but I'm interested to see how the show goes. Hopefully they announce a few new cool games.

Well, hopefully they announce a shitton of cool new games, but I feel the former's more realistic. Hopefully I can make it back from the vet before the show starts.

I'm going to bet that Microsoft are going to start bundling all Xbox Ones with Kinect...again.

Oh god I hope not. They need to start breaking away from the Kinect as much as they can. That thing is literal dead weight now.

MS closes with a Last Guardian onstage gameplay demo. Game comes out exclusively for XONE in fall 2014.

@mattyftm: It's part of their "do whatever they're doing" strategy they've been slowly deploying over the past year.

I'm just gonna Ctrl-C Ctrl-V my comment from the other thread.

I really want to know what the new Microsoft strategy is. Will it be the same "this is the all-in-one media device" push, even though they made the Kinect optional or will they go into the games territory a little bit further?

Anyone else hanging out in Sweep's Luchadeer Lounge like last year? Love listening to other duder's tastes in music ;)

@wrecks: *sigh* That person should have at least tried to shoop out the stuff on the side of the box.

@falconer: it's a dev kit, it's gonna look a little shoddy for awhile. surprised there isn't more duct tape...

Likely: Tomb Raider sequel reveal

Maybe: Fallout 4 reveal

Longshot: Crackdown 3??

#17 Posted by BIGJEFFREY (4985 posts) -

BRING ON THE HALOZ

Also cool my dumb banner won. Vhs were still awesome.

@evanfavreau: I think Crackdown 3 has a bigger chance of being revealed than Fallout 4 based on recent comments from Bethesda.

#19 Posted by EvanFavreau (73 posts) -

@steadyingmeat: Yeah, probably, totally... but I dunno, in my gut I feel like Fallout 4 could happen, despite whatever they have said publicly. Maybe just wishful thinking.

Done.

I really only have two big things that I think need to come out of the conference.

The first is that Phil Spencer needs to establish that he is truly the right man to right the ship that has been a disastrous PR year for the Xbox brand. Phil is a Microsoft career man, but the times that he was front and center he shown to be a lot more likable and human than Mattrick and the other suits that Microsoft would parade out since Moore left for EA.

Second, they need to show off stuff that will fill that box in 2014. We already know that Sunset Overdrive is coming, as well as Halo something and Forza, but that is a pretty slim offering when looked at more closely. I would like that 2014 not be remembered as a slim as hell year.

I mean, they say not to refresh, but I have this feeling they are hiding something from me.

You refreshed didn't you? Now everything is broken. NICE work Winternet.

#32 Posted by Chaser324 (6440 posts) -

@winternet: Based on the JS console output, it is trying to reconnect over and over again in the background, so I really don't think refreshing is going to do anything.

I... I thought I was doing a good thing. I only wanted to help. I'm sorry, I'M SORRY *sob* *sob*

#34 Posted by RonGalaxy (3132 posts) -

Okay, now the video player is just black when I hit play and it doesnt let me change quality options (which makes me think its broken). The only reason Im bringing this stuff up is because Im on a different internet connection than usual, and its been pretty spotty since we got it. Also, are they broadcasting their streams on twitch?

#35 Posted by Winternet (8015 posts) -

All this "green carpet" talk just sounds gross.

#36 Posted by ArbitraryWater (11649 posts) -

Unsurprisingly, everything is broken.

What makes it worse is when they tell you your browser is being dumb and to actually refresh.

Well, I refreshed and it started working past 10 seconds, so I'm calling the no-refresh bullshit

Wow, Cod looks really slick.

#44 Posted by Yummylee (21562 posts) -

Ha, take that Divison. You can close car doors, but Call of Duty can pull 'em off :P Hafta admit, even as someone that could not care less about CoD, graphically at least Adanced Warfare looks pretty good.
