Phil needs to go. He is the king of hyping the fuck out of something and having it backfire

Try adding something more to the thread.

Anyway we knew there was one more showing, at least its official. They still had to show halo multiplayer, + announce accessories, the S model and whatever games they held back. I still with we had something other than Forza to show off visuals.

Makes sense, I thought they showed almost everything in this week's event.
I watched it and was thinking they really didn't show much from first party. Obsidian had 3 games there, double fine showed 1, turn 10 showed a teaser. we saw halo, but so many studios haven't shown or annouced anything yet. Ninja theory didn't show anything on HB2 we hadn't already seen, or the other two games they have in the works.

just thinking about studios and checked my linkedin, and I just realized today that I've worked with people in some high places and high profile games. I know people at retro studios, I know the technical director at the coalition, I know the founder of compulsion games, I know people working on the new avengers game, the new far cry. if only i could collect interesting info... but i don't want to bug people.

Yup im pretty sure they revealed things like fable, Hellblade 2 and others as cgi Because they have a lot of games reserved instead of showing them on their big show
You people will never learn
I just wish they held CGI until later. this past show was supposed to be gameplay only imo

They have 8 studios that haven't shown anything yet. Also didn't announce any added studios acquired.


Ok so you're saying they are gonna say the acquired more studios didn't they say they were done? And i don't understand how anyone could be remotely excited for another show this past show was supposed to be "their big FIRST PARTY showing" people are seriously delusional if they think ms has anymore big suprises they've had 2 shows and they both have fell flat on their faces.

I'm really curious on how Lockhart will end up looking like and what name MS decided. They could probably give us a Halo Infinite MP sneak peak. Only thing I'm not looking forward to is the price of their external SSD cards...

No, they have explicitly said they were not done with acquisitions.

What are they gonna show? Games from other first party studios. You know most have more then a single team working on stuff.

Im interested in seeing new games or more of games we only had a teaser for. If you are more interested in not seeing games, you're in the wrong forum.

Phil is just doing his job and gets blasted for everything he says lol. When you do an interview you're obligated to talk. That's how it works in the real world. It doesn't mean that he is looking directly at Neogaf and purposefully blowing smoke in our faces. Anyway, I'm glad MS is doing these games showcases in a similar vein to Nintendo Directs. Gives the company more flexibility on sharing game news so they don't have to have one big event every year.

Why don't Sony's or Nintendo's execs give interviews every single day?

Isn't this going to be the long rumored Lockhart event, with pricing and release dates?

Phil doesn't do interviews every single day, but it might feel that way because Neogaf is always on the ball and ready to dissect anything he says. Also, given that MS just had their game showcase it shouldn't surprise anyone that he has been doing more interviews as of late, before and after the showcase, especially with the negative reactions. As far Sony and Nintendo execs go, i imagine they do interviews for the media outlets in Japan on occasion, but we don't hear about it as often. It's a different culture compared to here in the states. Phil makes a great PR man because of his personality and outspokenness. Nintendo no longer has Reggie and I have no idea who is in charge of Sony's gaming division.

Herman Hulst is in charge of Sony first party. Sony more professional, Phil spouts shit to often. Always back tracking on Everything.

So you talk about being realistic? Wait for the price, if people think the series x is gonna cost 500 they will have a real surprise

I'm assuming this is where they talk about price and Lockheart

Wonder what their pricing plan is, will Covid have any affect?
