What's on the wish list for this year?

 

Think we'll see anything on new hardware?

I expect new hardware details for sure, Sony already teased their specs, no surprise from them, I expect the same.   Gears 5 for sure, probably more info on Halo Infinite in some form.   xCloud stuff should also hit, so that'd be interesting.  Everyone just wants to know what the studios are up to outside of halo, forza and gears.

It would be awesome to actually see the new hardware as opposed to the Scorpio like teaser. I skipped the One X gen so I'll definitely be jumping in with whatever MS release next. 

 

I hope for this every year, but really looking forward to hopefully seeing some new IP

If I remember correctly, they teased the Scorpio one year and then showed off the hardware the following year in the same year it released? So, in theory, we won't see anything this year I'd assume.

Yeah, but with Sony having the PS5 coming it might be more of a race to see who releases first.  The PS4 coming out a full month before the XO back in 2013 didn't help, plus the price difference.

 

This is why I think the rumor of 2 new Xbox systems is true, they'll probably try to match or undercut with a base system and charge $499 for their more powerful system.

I'm not sure they have to be able to physically show off the next Gen Xbox physically though in order to "beat" Sony. They certainly do have to announce and confirm the spec's though.

 

I actually think the two different level consoles is a really smart move from MS, they've probably seen a lot of data between who stuck with an OG XB1, who upgraded to an S and who upgrade to an X. I suspect they may get a lot more day one sales compared to the OG Xb release as it was above their price range.

The specs will be told for sure, more or less.  To what detail though we don't know.  Like what Sony just did, 8 core, but what speed?  New GPU, but what are it's specs?  All still unknown, they don't want the other to out do them.   The fact we're getting info on things before E3 at all is interesting.  Makes me wonder what they're going to show us even more now.

I feel like Sony has always had the lead when it comes to its lineup with games, even though most are stuff I'd rarely ever play they just always seem to have a great and interesting lineup. Microsoft however, seem to come to E3 with the same stuff (Forza, Gears, Halo) each year, whilst we know those 3 are likely to make an experience I'm hoping for something new.

I agree, but you also have to remember that, in most cases, at past E3s Sony has managed to show off the same "coming soon" exclusives 2 or 3 times repeatedly.   Which is fine, but it's just padding their show with something for the sake of something, probably why they're not coming to E3 this year.   They also don't want to share the spotlight with anyone, which I also understand.

 

As far as MS goes, well those 3 are their big tentpole titles, it's like Nintendo having a show and talking about Mario or Zelda or Metroid.   Same deal really.

 

Anyways, as far as this E3 goes, the tweet has just raised expectations.  New games aside, there's talk about the new consoles, xCloud, more Game Pass on PC tidbits etc.  It should be one of their, if not the, biggest E3 MS has ever had.   I think there's also rumors of maybe 2 or 3 more studios being picked up.    With everything multiplatform going cross-play, the need to actually own the system most of your friends do just so you can play together on the same game is starting to be a thing of the past.  So it comes down to 1st party games more and more.

 

I expect to see something about Fable 4 btw.

Agreed, I think Microsoft is looking pretty strong with their Xbox right now, everything you've listed above as more than likely being discussed as well as the tweet only cements this. 

 

Fable has become a little bit of a joke so I hope if they do, it has a release date that seems realistic. 

 

I do hope that the Game Pass news isn't all focused on spreading to PC (and maybe others, Switch?) and there is also some good news for the Xbox also.

I saw a post saying that there's 3 new IP no one knows about.    Also the 3rd party showing will be big as well.  So far I haven't seen any posts with hints about other titles than what you just listed.

I read something similar that talked about 3 brand new IPs so we can probably only account for 11.

 

I think those 6 are probably the safest bet, other than those I think we need to look at some of the acquisitions they made last year. I would assume Outer Worlds would count from Obsidian? I think I've seen rumours about a Wildlands 3 from Inxile also so perhaps those may be included in the list.

Does some other studio have a publishing deal for Outer Worlds?  I'll have to check.    Hmm, wiki says it's being published by Private Division, which is ex-take two people.  If it's not a MS/XGS (Xbox Game Studios) published game then I don't think it would count.  But it should be shown off as a 3rd party title at least.

Good shout, I just assumed given they had been acquired then it would be published by MS

Deal was already in place before so I don't think they'll break it.   Who knows?

Here's another expectations video, this time from Brad.

 

 

I'd like to add that this seems to be their longest show to date?  Longer than last years and that one had quite a good number of games listed in it.

So looks like we can add the new Star Wars game from Respawn to the Xbox E3 list of 3rd party games to get shown, from what the EA show said, more to show tomorrow.

      Microsoft's Xbox app gets updated with support for remote play on Android and iOS
      by Anmol Mehrotra



      Microsoft has released a new update for its Xbox app for Android and iOS users. The latest update brings support for remote play as well as the new UI that made a debut on Xbox consoles with the October 2020 update last week.

      In case you don't know, remote play allows users to stream gameplay from their Xbox console to smartphones via WiFi. The feature is a bit different from Microsoft xCloud as it requires the user to physically own a console and stream the gameplay. In contrast, Microsoft xCloud allows users to play games without owning an Xbox game console.

      Here is the full changelog for the update:

      The changelog for the update is the same for both Android and iOS. On Android, the app has been updated to version 2009.1016.2010 and is available for download from the Google Play Store. Meanwhile, on iOS, the app has been updated to version 2009.1009.1918 and is available for download from the App Store.

      Microsoft: We can recoup $7.5bn Bethesda purchase without putting games on PlayStation
      by Usama Jawad

      Microsoft made quite some waves in the gaming industry last month when it announced that it is acquiring ZeniMax Media for a staggering $7.5 billion. ZeniMax Media owns several high profile game development studios Bethesda Softworks, Bethesda Game Studios, id Software, ZeniMax Online Studios, Arkane, MachineGames, Tango Gameworks, Alpha Dog, and Roundhouse Studios. The purchase meant that all these studios are coming under the Redmond tech giant's first-party umbrella, which led to questions about whether future games from them would also be launching on PlayStation platforms.

      While Microsoft's Phil Spencer stated that existing commitments such as Deathloop and Ghostwire: Tokyo's timed PlayStation 5 exclusivity will be honored, he stated that for other games, the company will decide "on a case by case basis". Now, the executive has shed some more light on this matter.

      In an interview with Kotaku, Spencer clearly stated that Microsoft does not need to release Bethesda's upcoming The Elder Scrolls VI on PlayStation platforms to recoup its $7.5 billion purchase. The executive then went on to say that:

      While Spencer's wording is vague enough to not be considered as a flat-out refusal of bringing upcoming ZeniMax games to PlayStation, it does indicate that Microsoft is under no such pressure. Clearly, with its success with Game Pass and xCloud, the company has a huge market of players to tap into.

      All in all, it won't be surprising if Microsoft decides not to release future ZeniMax Media games on PlayStation platforms. It might even be able to attract more gamers to its cloud streaming solutions if buying an Xbox console is out of the question for hardcore Sony fans. You can check out Spencer's interview in its entirety by hitting the source link below.

      Microsoft launches a Bing app for Xbox
      by João Carrasqueira

      Microsoft has announced a new Bing app for Xbox consoles, which is meant to make the company's search engine more readily accessible on its family of gaming hardware. In terms of basic features, it's pretty much what you'd expect from a Bing app, with web and image searches, so you can get help with a game without using your phone or PC, for example.

      It does have some more interesting features, though. Microsoft says the Bing app can help users discover recommended and tending games, along with videos and news about games. The app also uses data about the games you and your friends play to deliver its recommendations and search results. Plus, if you search for images, you can easily set search results as your Xbox wallpaper, which makes customization a bit easier.



      The Bing app for Xbox also integrates with the Microsoft Rewards program, so you get points for performing searches. But Microsoft also added some new ways to reward users with more points, like quizzes and polls. Finally, the app also supports voice search, which is probably easier than navigating an on-screen keyboard with a controller.



      The app is available to download now, and you can install remotely on your console using this link. It's currently only available in the United States, but it should make its way to more markets soon.

      Microsoft reveals the first Xbox Series X|S Optimized games
      by Rich Woods

      When Microsoft's Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles launch on November 10, they'll have the largest library of games that any console has ever had at launch. The reason for that is pretty simple. The new consoles can play every game that you could play on the Xbox One family, including games playable via the Backward Compatibility program, which were originally made for the Xbox 360 and even the original Xbox.

      These games are going to get improvements just by running on the new consoles, but of course, there are games that are getting enhancements for the new generation. Today, Microsoft revealed the list of games that are set to be optimized for the Xbox Series X|S on day one. Here's the list:

      If you've got Xbox Game Pass or Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, you already have access to these games. And for many of them, the update is free if you own it. Microsoft also noted that there are other games coming soon like Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, Destiny 2: Beyond Light, The Medium, and Cyberpunk 2077.

      Microsoft's two new consoles are set to arrive on November 10, and if you haven't pre-ordered yet, good luck finding one. You might have better luck in stores on launch day.

      Microsoft extends warranty for the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2
      by João Carrasqueira

      Microsoft is extending the warranty of the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, the premium controller it debuted last year, according to a support document spotted by Windows Central. Before, the controller's warranty period was only 90 days, but it's now being extended to a year, which covers the entire period since the controller launched in November of last year. The change is also retroactive, meaning if you paid for a repair before, you'll be refunded by October 31.

      Microsoft says this is because a "small percentage" of customers have experienced mechanical issues with the controller, which is understandably frustrating in a controller that cost $179.99. Earlier this week, it was reported that the Elite Wireless Controller Series 2 became the subject of a class-action lawsuit due to issue with "drifting" joysticks, where the analog sticks register input even when users don't touch them. The lawsuit had been going on for longer, targeting various other Xbox controllers.

      Notably, Microsoft isn't the only company under fire for similar issues. Nintendo is facing a similar class-action lawsuit against its Joy-Con controllers for the same reason. In response, the company began repairing Joy-Con for free, even outside the warranty period, if any issues came about with the analog sticks, which the company still seems to be doing based on our experiences.

      The lawsuit against Microsoft states that the problems derive from an issue with the potentiometer in the joystick mechanism. With the changes to the warranty policy, Microsoft may be able to clear itself of charges related to the lawsuit, though it remains to be seen if newer versions of the controller have had the root cause fixed.
