So that's what, 9pm GMT? That's absolutely ideal. :)

EDIT - It's in the thread title. :fp:

It's on!

At 9am the journos and bloggers are just waking up so the move to 2pm gives them a chance to be in the spirit of things. Microsoft can also do what Sony does before their conferences and provide free food and drink.


Now the new tech reveal is a dead cert, ut what I want to see is a few exclusive games to complement it that take advantage of it.

Nice time, always hit and miss trying to get from work to watch on the Monday.

They've already said no exclusive games.

I think he means Xbox one exclusives that will look lush on Scorpio.

Very happy about the time, think I'll take Monday off and make a night of it! :)

I suspect that, as with the PS4 Pro, at first the additional power won't really be utilised to any great extent but over time the extra polish will become more apparent in games.

Ah yes, well that makes sense then. You're quite right, Microsoft needs exclusives this E3 and it needs lots of them. Preferably new IP although I wouldn't complain about Rare bringing back an old franchise or Remedy doing a new Alan Wake.

I reckon a major patch at launch to boost most games and several MS games out now getting 4K, Forza Horizon 3 already has 4K textures etc for PC as does Gears 4.

I only say this cos on the software side of things MS has really ramped up under Phil and they are Gonna try and show just how powerful Scorpio is.

Might have some sort of Xbox Scorpio (console) exclusive VR game and have optional bundle with one of those bespoke ones coming out. It'd have to be plug 'n play tho. (Still wouldn't get)

Photek understood! In this tweet Phil Spencer say there will be more 1P (1st party?) games than last year. Of course this could all be PR hype but there has to been game reveals for titles coming this year.


I'm actually thinking there will be a Fable IV before Christmas!

Does that mean that there will be more games that eventually get cancelled?

Hopefully Ubisoft and Sony push forward their Monday conferences due to the freed up space and we won't have to stay up until 2am to watch the Sony one.

Wishful thinking, though.

Phil doesn't tend to PR stuff like that, personally I'll be astounded if there are more exclusives, it would make cancelling Scalebound understandable tho.

I just hope they weren't just spouting nonsense when they said they had test units already up and running for developers so we can see games actually running on this at E3 and the developers have had more than a few weeks to cobble stuff together.
Hopefully they can send out units to places like Digital Foundry before release so they can test it and give people half a chance to see if an upgrade is worthwhile as this isn't going to be cheap.

When has a console maker ever sent out a pre-released console to some journo's. They (like Sony/Nintendo) have to keep leaks to a minimum, they will no doubt pass on full specs to DF and others at E3 but other than that is asking a bit much.

I'm expecting to be disappointed with this E3, I'll assume now that more exclusive games and new IP will be them counting up x amount on console and x amount on PC as "hey look, we promised lots of new games"

will also be disappointed if they use E3 to show off new Xbox as this will eat into games reveal time quite severely and mean not a lot of games to show.
