They'll have some dickhead on stage waffling tech babble in our ears about how native it's 4k is, and a staged gameplay demo and WIP trailers. (1 Hour ago)
They literally have to show amazing final products, no bullshit, ready to roll, no delays, as you see it, day one. That isn't happening (1 Hour ago)
we all know that showing and promising stuff isn't the same as actually delivering, and from past experiences from no matter who, it never turns out that way (1 Hour ago)
@KORNdog: I'll bet they will have an impressive E3 due to the buzz of the new hardware, however... (1 Hour ago)
But every chance of introducing that variety they either drop, cancel or don't follow through with improved sequels. E3 needs to be amazing from them. (3 Hours ago)
Before we get them. They need variety to bring in new people. Because forza and halo aren't going to do that (3 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: basically MS say a lot of things but nothing about what they're ouputting suggests any of it is true. Even if they announce new games, or a SO, or recore sequel, it could be years (3 Hours ago)
