Just watched MS's conference that I DVR'd thanks to it being on Spike.
Hat's off to MS for doing it right this year. The focus on gaming was no doubt perfect.
As far as "Only On XBox One" games, I am most interested in...
- Sunset Overdrive
- Crackdown (WHAT!!!)
- Forza Horizon 2
And honestly, I am not sold on Scalebound just yet. I know people worship Platinum games, with hack n slash games they are very much hit or miss for myself, so am reserved on that one. Every other game I am no doubt very into.
I dug the little montage with the ID program. Love a good independent game, and looked like there could be some good ones there.
As far as the other tiles I was most interested in, they were all multiplatform, so really a lot is going to depend on just how much secret sauce they have in fact unlocked thanks to freeing up the resources from Kinect. I have no allegiance to either console and am not swayed by who is playing what where, I will always go where the better overall graphics and performance are. So in regards to those other games that looked good, Tomb Raider, The Division, Evolve, AC: Unity, it all comes down to if they are the same from a specifications perspective as to if I will get them on the One or not.
There were other games I can see people being excited about that were just not my cup of tea (Fable Legends) for example, so they had a good showing from that perspective.
Finally, love the fact Forza 5 finally has Nürburgring, will definitely check that out soon. And pretty damn positive I will also be checking out that Dead Rising 3 DLC. Looked awesome.
So really damn good conference from MS. Total 180 from last year. Good stuff. Thanks MS, as now I no longer second guess picking up a XBox One at launch, and I no doubt did there for a little while, as recently as Titanfall tbh.
