Yeah, this is reactionary to Sony.
People keep saying they've planned this months in advance are probably right to some degree but I really think they are feeling the pinch now.
We are in for interesting times.
Said it in the other two threads:
Oh shit I forgot that Gears of War: Judgement comes out on March 19th. So to me I'm guessing we could see an announcement for the event as early as a week from that game's launch. Microsoft seems pretty savvy about not having any overlap in product announcements and releases so I think it's pretty safe to say we won't see anything before the 19th.
To go into more detail, I bet we're going to see a few surprises from third parties. Possibly Call of Duty X or Battlefield 4, The Walking Dead Season 2, a new Mass Effect or Dragon Age, GTA V, and a few other third party games.
Why do people keep saying this?Getting ready for the Mattrick gifs. Oh wait, he's a tool.
I find it hilarious that Microsoft decided to respond now. Really MS? What the fuck are you waiting for?
The Xbox brand is stronger than the PS brand, they have the casuals and the "core" gamers, and Xbox Live is still huge.
And Microsoft isn't a complete mess of a company like Sony.
