No new Xbox games at the Video Game Awards

Sad panda

The business of November has finally simmered down and the video game industry is just about ready to call it a year. But not until the Video Game Awards take place this week, with a number of games taking to the stage and handful of new ones ready to make their debut. But Microsoft have seemingly closed shop already, confirming that nothing new will be shown at the event.

Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg confirmed this on Twitter last night, saying that the Xbox manufacture has nothing new to reveal at the rebranded Las Vegas event.

It’s important to take note of the wording though. Even if Microsoft isn’t planning to reveal any new games, that doesn’t mean there can’t be more looks at already revealed titles. This could mean more trailers for games like Quantum Break, Scalebound or even a sneak peek at the Gears of War reboot. I highly doubt Microsoft has absolutely nothing to shows.

It’s the complete opposite with Sony however. They’re already teasing a brand new title for reveal at the show, as well as more looks at exclusives like Uncharted 4 and No Man’s Sky. There’s also going to be a strong third-party presence, with Hideo Kojima possibly already stealing the show with his Metal Gear Solid V multiplayer reveal.

Either way, there’s a lot to look forward to this year, which couldn’t really be said for previous shows. The Video Game Awards will be streamed online, live from Las Vegas, on December 6th.

        Don’t understand it either. Batman games all suffer from the same problem, where they feel gamers need to be spoon fed how to be Batman.

      2.5 months left before the bar is lifted. Dragon Age, as much as I love it, is going to date so so bad.

            Do not joke, the gold statue of President Malema will be guarded by the Banana state guard until the 7th blight. While Mugabe is still alive looking after the former bread basket of Ferelden. Arghhhhhh…. all this politics, too much Dragon Age.

          Origins didn’t have much of a colour palette. I think that’s its biggest problem graphics wise.

            Mine actually looks very darn close to that, but I put off the grass mod, that thing messes with your fps. Now it runs 100%.

            Nope if optimized correctly and with the right card(s) you can get 60 fps. I have a GTX780 and my skyrim looks like this image basically and running between 30-55 fps.

            “if its broke, save MONEY, let the public do the BETA at full retail for 2 years, all staff members in the QA department get retrenched, fix it later… if the demand is still high”

            It worked for Skyrim.

            Going GOLD used to mean it passed QA with a tick in the box.

            I understand updates, but patches…

            Do not support DRM, should be changed to BROKEN experiences.

    The top games on Metacritic are the same as last year.

    GTAV, TLOU… The Last of Us hands down GOTY 2014.

    After spending so many hours in Dragon Age, try playing TLOU Remastered for a bit. You will be blown away by how dated the graphics really are in Dragon age. No jokes, TLOU is blowing my eyeballs out all over again.

    Wait “Gears of War reboot”? Why would you “reboot” a series that’s a total of 8 years old? It’s not as if the series started in the 80’s?
