      Oh man, these are absolutely hilarious (especially the Big Trouble in Little China one)! I don't think MS will have an E3 this good though, not this year anyways. I think MS will still have a good E3 as long a there are unannounced 1st party games coming which show a shift in focus towards gaming. If they announce raytraced lighting for the 1X this year it will show off some of the real power behind the system. Finally, if they announce a MR partnership with Samsung it will be big news as well.

      Most important thing is games though. I know that Mr. X would agree with me here. I'm keeping expectations in check, as always, but if they manage all three announcements at E3 this year I'll be really impressed.

      There's definitely a Mic drop item in there somewhere; wouldn't surprise me if they announce a crackdown 3 beta happening straight away.

      I hope 343 drops an unannounced IP on us, set to release within 12 months of E3. A Halo tease would be nice too, but what has 343 been up to since 2015 anyways if they're just now looking to develop the tech the game will run on?

      Misterx It doesn't flow around the edge. It is contained to the inside. Edges are forerunners structures. :)

      If there is Halo stuff then I think they'll double up,; X- enhanced version of Reach coming this year and 6 teased for next year.

      good rumors from Resetera’s Klobrille:

      “Alright. Because of my comment yesterday I know I owe you guys a little more. I had a long - and I mean really long - chat with someone working on the game just today. I can't verify these things though as I won't risk anyones anonymity. So take this as a disclaimer - and just as a blank internet rumor.

      Without going into any kind of specifics what I learned is that Crackdown 3 is a bigger game than I thought it would be - and you know I already always was pretty hyped about it. Both in terms of content scope and budget. Contrary to what I've read here, the game without a doubt could've been released in Nov. There was primary one big voice within Microsoft stopping this though - and the budget of the project once more got raised significantly. (Personal annotation: while the name never was written, I think he indeed meant Phil, "to make sure the IP stays relevant in future"). The additional development time wasn't used for just polishing. It also allowed both Sumo and Ruffian to add more features to the two distinct game modes (Reagent Games seems super small today, only overlooking the project). Game runs in native 4K on Xbox One X. No performance mode. "Significantly more meaningful" transformation cars. More on the game to come "soon" now - couldn't confirm E3 showing. I got ensured the game has "significantly improved" compared to the last showing. Maybe @Jez heard the same story though.”

        No doubt adding a Battle Royale mode! This mode makes so much sense for this game for both consumers and Microsoft. For consumers it will be unique amongst Battle Royales with its important use of environment and for MS it will mean that it can spread those expensive cloud compute resources over a significantly higher ratio of players per sever.

        MS try to create hype? Good for them.

        But nothing will help Crackdow 3 to be more then 7.5 game.

        Its MP game with bad not so detailed GFX from MS = automatic 7-8s.

        Destruction videos are ok - but there is no same desctuction in the gameplay shown and i fear will be not.

        @Misterx

        Because what they show at E3 last year was the single player part not the multiplayer and remember there are two teams working in this game the single player part by sumo digital and the multiplayer part by ruffian but lets wait the final product before making any assumptions.

        Misterx Perhaps you are right, perhaps not. I see Crackdown as being two separate games, the single player and the multiplayer that both use the same assets. Its not a multiplayer focussed with a single player campaign tacked on and likewise isn't a multiplayer with a campaign added as an after thought. From the start it was clear that there were separate dev teams working on single and multi, they have also both been shown separately and even in different years! We have seen very little of either considering how long its been in development which could indicate that its a mediocre or even broken game that they are trying to salvage or equally could also mean that MS know they have a generation defining game on their hands and want to do it justice, maybe a bit of both. I am not expecting a 10/10 because its MS and they always get a much more critical reception than Sony do but I am willing to give it the benefit of the doubt until the product is seen in its final form.

        Even if Crackdown 3 is the bestest game ever we all know in the current environment the gaming media would never give it 10/10 scores as they have to pander to the massive PS4 fanbase for site clicks.

        MisterX,That game is going to be so addictive and playable that the rating in the final means nothing, only pony will shit big shits as before, we xbox fans are going to play the best exclusive as we have so far, and it's better just coming, and we have the strongest console, so it's all arranged, game on sisi and bruthers

      Multiplayer

          Interesting, bringing Mixer and mixed reality together. I hope MS have a killer app for this that was part of the reason for buying Beam rather than having the technology first and then trying to come up with an app to make use of it like we saw with Kinect 2. This is the reason Nintendo are so successful when they come up with a new gimmick, they develop a killer app hand-in-hand with the tech to the point where it can be debated about which one they came up with first, the app or the tech. MS are in a pretty unique position right now where they own some industry leading tech in various emerging areas and the platform for it all to run on. They have been here before though and managed to give up that head start to another player who went on to define the sector such as the iPad.

          I enjoyed RAGE. However, going by recent Bethesda trend, I think this will be a sort of soft reboot of the series. Hopefully its properly open world with plenty of vehicles and gadgets.

                Microsoft's new Xbox controller designed for accessibility leaks ahead of reveal

                Microsoft has been working on a new Xbox controller focused on improving access to gaming for those with accessibility needs, here's your first look.



                Microsoft is known for championing inclusion and accessibility causes, bringing gaming and other Microsoft services to those who have various types of accessibility needs. Recently, leakster h0x0d discovered promo images for an unannounced accessibility Xbox controller, which will likely get its big reveal sometime between now and E3 2018.

                While we don't have many details about how it works exactly, you can see in the image how it has grooved impressions at the top which represent all of the Xbox controller's different functions, which would help users who favor touch over sight to program different buttons, and two large "A" and "B" buttons which are presumably programmable. It also features a 3 light LED similar to the previously leaked Xbox Elite V2 controller, which could be to indicate when different programmed modes are active. It also looks as though it has a USB port and 3.5mm audio jack on the left side.

                Expect more details in the near future, but this is just another example in a huge list of commitments Microsoft and the Xbox team has been making to help those with unique accessibility needs.

                https://www.windowscentral.com/micro...s-ahead-reveal

                Kudos Microsoft on the accessibility work.

                Just watch this video!

                  Great job caring about the handicapped like MS does. All Sony cares about is how they can fool you into believing they'll finally make an accessory or handheld will finally be worth it so you'll but everything they try to sell you. Even the Pro is a joke. Kind of like you.

                    I think Cliff should reflect about what made him famous... Gears. If he were to revisit his early ideas of making a Pendulum Wars game, it could be a lot different from Gears in terms of gameplay (no horde) but offer a lot of backstory on the events leading up to E-Day. Get well Cliff, and come back strong!

                        PSN and Xbox live have about the same amount of downtime.
                        If you consider that PSN has about twice as many active users, that is not a testament to Xbox Love's reliability.

                        If you also consider that Microsoft rocks tha power of tha CLOUD, that is actually pretty pathetic, don't you think?

                        2girls1cuphead well i think that you've been gaming About as Long as you've been on this Forum trolling. otherwise you'd surely remember the 23 days of PSN downtime IN A ROW in 2011.

                        Even in my Xbox 360 days I never payed for live, so I can't talk from experience, but two of my friends told me that it ain't all sunshine on Xbox live.

                        They told me, because I was complaining about how much PSN sucked when playing GTA online.

                        About the PSN hack, yeah that was very fishy on Sony's part. I wasn't affected too much, because I didn't play a lot of online at the time. All I got from it were 4 or 6 games for free. Can't remember.

                        Do you want a the truth? MS has always great hardware but last 5 years their software is average..

                        this thing will be bettter with Android or iOS unfortinatly.

                        What? software average? you mean windows, sorry agree to disagree, windows 10 it's very reliable especially in the business enterprise. It's not perfect but is way far ahead of competitors like Android or iOS, Besides this device is aimed to the enterprise market only.

                        How ofter you go to Windows Store to download touch apps?
                        How much do you go to Google Store or Apple store to download apps?

                        Google/Apples appa are just better - integrated better to everything in OS. Windows Store apps - only make me angree...

                        This thing is for touch - but only looking good in PR. When you buy it even for enterpricse you will notice that screens from this video are bullshots and you cant download such apps for your interprise with such use cases.

                        even when you buy some - out of the box the will not work as advertised.

                        MS is desperate in enterprise market too now - only words and no working producs out of the box mostly.

                        also - MS store apps are laggy as hell. virtual everything conpect is not nice to use but yes great in theory.

                        Operating systems and app stores are two different things, I agree that windows store needs some work to improve it, I'm not denying that fact. but when we talk about windows 10 as an operating system in general it's better in every area than the competitors. You said Microsoft is desperate in the enterprise market....Nope!!! you're wrong, Microsoft is leading right now in this market did you know that the surface hub 1 already exist or the surface devices in general. The only market Microsoft is lagging or failing right now is the mobile market and i hope that changes when they reveal the rumored surface phone if it happens.

                        Well talking about new hardware, guess what.

                        "Microsoft is reportedly working on new budget Surface tablet with Windows 10"

                        "Microsoft may be working on a new 10-inch Surface tablet, powered by Intel, that'll be priced at $400 and launching in the second half of this year."

                        Misterx lol so you're telling me that you want a 50.5 Inch iOS or Android device? when apple announced th iPad they were made fun of that by 2020 the iPad would be like 50 inch large or so. and the other one is called for example a Sony TV with Android TV.

                        Surface Hub is like the other ones said a pure enterprise solution. It focuses on collaboration. What Software is better suited than Office 365 and Skype for Business / MS Teams to for that? or would you rather have it run office mobile from iOS?

                      It seems like they're still hiring more people for the Fable project.

                          I wonder why EA hasn't revisited this franchise in so long?
