The Project Scorpio segment was fantastic. Me during the video:

So wait, now power matters to Xbox fans?

 

As for the conference.. where was Crackdown 3..?  Also missing was the rumored Ori and the Will of the Wisps?

 

Can't wait for Gears 4, Forza Horizon 3 and Sea of Thieves, but really not a whole lot announced this year that wasn't already known about..

So.... any speculation on how the whole "leave no one behind" thing is going to work?  Obviously if a game is tweaked to max out the Scorpio, it won't run properly on the X1.  You think it could end up like some games today (BO3, Shadows of Mordor) where the current gen X1 gets the best and the 360 gets the scraps?  Either way, I feel good that Microsoft has announced it for Holiday 2017.  At first, I was completely against purchasing a new system, but it seems like them announcing when it would come gives me time to change my mind.

 

Also, has anyone been able to dl TTT2 for free yet?  Still showing 19.99 for me

Guess I'll be waiting one more year for a new Xbox.

Also, if those rumoured PS Neo specs are true, Scorpio just blew it out of the water!!


Have to wonder though if Sony decided not to talk about Neo at E3 because they may have gotten wind of what MS was planning. So now they'll go back to the drawing board and try to one up MS.

Xbox One S is up for preorder on Amazon. $399. (I presume the $299 price point was for a smaller hard drive.)

500GB version now up for preorder. $299.

I really hope it functions like that, though the same can be said to an extent where it gets to a point where certain games just can't run on old rigs. I feel like it will be like the Kinect, "there will never be an xbox without a kinect" and now the S has no Kinect port.... I feel like Scorpio games by around 2019 will become unplayable on Xbox One/S.

Bummer I was hoping they were going to only have a 1tb and 2tb option and ditch the 500gb.. oh well.. also note that the vertical stand only comes with the 2tb package.

So...Microsoft is savings its BC news for Larry's streams...?

 

Since we didn't hear any mention of BC at the press event, I'm unclear as to when & where they'd announce new BC titles during E3 week.

i see what you are saying. i think by 2019, i really dont see how it wont by more like a next gen/prev gen type of game releases. otherwise i dont see how they could take advantage of the power of the new scorpio without having something that just cant be done on xbox 1.

I'd have no qualms at all if that doesn't happen until 2019

fyi, vertical stand no longer is shown on amazon's page for the 2tb.

That would be awesome, but I'm not sure I want to pay the premium to customize (I don't know what it'll cost just yet).  At a certain point, I might as well pick up another Elite

I imagine those are coming in August with the Xbox One S (Xbones.. lol)   Love the concept actually, will likely trade in my Lunar White and Forza blue controllers for custom ones when they launch.

Last I checked, if a preview program update causes hardware issues it's covered by a separate warranty, even if yours expired already. But i've had a power supply issue before and just had to unplug everything for a while, so you might want to go through all the options if you haven't already: http://support.xbox....e-wont-power-on


Nope they're denying its their fault even though I've seen a few other people have the same thing happen.

Don't see why anyone would buy the slim knowing Scorpio is coming next year.

Couple of slow parts around the halfway mark; otherwise, good show from Microsoft.  Really interested with that Gears controller and the customized controllers. I'd like to see more color plates for the console itself.

 

Gears 4, Inside, State of Decay 2, and We Happy Few were the highlights for me.  Scopio and the Slim have me curious to see more so I can't say if I'm excited for one over the other.

 

And I had to laugh at Scalebound with the GIANT ENEMY CRAB part (complete with "I see a weak spot") and the overreacting during Sea of Thieves. 

 

Current ranking: Microsoft > Bethesda > EA

Good briefing.  I'm celebrating by going out and grabbing four wieners and a big gulp.
