I'm wondering who that 3rd party with more time than Bethesda will be. I could see either Sega or Bandai Namco, but even Capcom. And for as much as I want Sega to go wild with their catalogue I really want Capcom to announce Dragon's Dogma 2. If MS want to make me really happy, have both. Unleash Persona 4 Golden, show off Soul Hackers 2, maybe find some blood money to bring some Vanillaware over, and for the love of the gods make Dragon's Dogma 2 a reality. Oh yeah, I want to see Ichiban carry on in the next Yakuza too!

Capcom has their own event on Monday. If Namco is working on killer Instinct could be them.

Sega. Considering that Tom said that all the games on the showcase will come to Game Pass, only Sega can provide that output.

Can't wait for Starfield. There's probably not gonna be any Kojima game to show. They're gonna announce they're partnering together for his next game (leading to a timed exclusive or some shit).

Indiana Jones?
Wonder if this will be first or third person. Hard to imagine a first person IJ, but Machine Games has only made 1st person games up til now.

No avowed, no fable, no perfect dark. If true, just what the have these studios been doing the last two years? People used to be able to start from scratch and ship a game in 2 years. Why cant they get even a vertical slice up and running in two years?

I will save my rant for tomorrow, but wasn't Microsoft with their blank checks supposed to make these studios bigger, more productive and more efficient.

Lets just hope Tom is wrong here and we get Fable, Forza, Avowed, Perfect Dark and Starfield tomorrow.

Ms and Kojima partnership I call bs a game maybe but not a full blown partnership. I'm ready to eat that salty crow tho I just picture Kojima with Sony but then again playstation owns bungie so 🤷. Werid times in video Games these days

It certainly doesn’t look like it. Maybe something new will be shown that is good.

I cry about Xbox and hate PlayStation.
Not unless someone delivers Sony a truckload of cash. I do wish death stranding was owned by kojima. Then it wouldn’t take as long for it to come to pc.
not on your competitor console with more game studios. By your logic, Sony might as well give up and sell their game studios to Microsoft, i mean its a truckload of cash.

I’m not saying it’s going to happen. It’s not unheard of though. Ms has sold several IP’s. One of which they sold to insomniac. I haven’t heard of Sony selling any though.

Dude games nowadays are freaking big in scope, AI is more advanced in some cases, rendering 4K graphics don't seem to be an easy task, there home office approach is not the same to be in a warroom developing, if you want games every 2 years prepare yourself for a mess

Permabanned.
what if Kojima games starting with Overdose become exclusive to Xbox/PC? :messenger_tears_of_joy: perhaps a 10 year deal or maybe it's just Xbox/PC get timed exclusivity? You wanna play on PS5 then you need to wait a year or two. some people will be :messenger_pouting:

Why on earth do some of you think it's logical or makes sense to show everything you got in 1 show?

"Let's show everything we got in 1 show, fuck the future and this way we can over shadow and smother hype for some games with other games"

Lol maybe they should also release them all in the same year and forget about the next 3
