Games and more games exclusive to the system. That's all MS need to show Xbox owners right now.

“But I don't want to go among mad people,” Alice remarked. “Oh, you can't help that,” said the Cat: “we're all mad here".

In for the Third Party announcement, my hype for Crackdown has deflated so much, the only Xbox exclusive I have a care about is Ori at this point

Hmm... They obviously can't say much if they want to surprise, and I expect very close to the time there will be the usual image of everything that'll be talked about with a few redacted tiles for the surprises. That should at least give some idea of how much there is to talk about.

It's a 2hr show, at a stretch those 3 will take up 30mins. Expect they'll announce more info before the show.

Surely we will see either Rocksteady’s new game or Crystal Dynamics Avengers game at this event? Maybe one here and one at The Game Awards
