I just had to say something about that event because microsoft has been driving me crazy with how bad they have been marketing these things.
Last e3 they had the chance to do something without sony there and they showed the cinematic for the "escape" mode from gears 5!!! Cinematic! Not even gameplay! When they should have been showing gameplay from the campaign, which was great!
Now we have their first marketing event for the new xbox, for next gen and they still haven't learned their lesson! They keep showing underwhelming cinematics or gameplay from AA game studios(no offense to these studios). But it just doesn't sell next gen and it doesn't sell this new console.
They even said there would be new assassins creed gameplay and they didn't deliver that! Like the gears 5 thing all over again! They need to get it together for their first party stuff. But I don't think they will. They will just show some cinematics from each of their games that won't be that interesting.
Just wanted to vent a little. Makes it hard to get excited about next gen when I saw this event.
Edit: Now, I came into this presentation with much too high expectations. Looking back at the games now, that they showed, it looks like they are running around 60fps(I think the stream was around 30fps) with ray tracing(maybe) and higher levels of detail(I like how "the ascent" looks. Could be a cool game at launch.
Overall, I was kind of disappointed but I still like some of what I saw and it looks like the footage from assassins creed was in engine gameplay, just not behind the back. And I'm pretty impressed by that.
