Xbox head: E3 more about first party titles

E3 is all about the spectacle of gaming. Stands are bigger than most people can imagine and every studio and publishers goes as over the top as they can to try to “win”. No where is this more apparentl than during the press conference gauntlet. Microsoft kicks off the day with fanfare, but Sony is usually the most loved thanks to giving starving journalists food and drink. But Phil Spencer has some plans to make E3 special this year.

Everyone’s favourite Xbox exec is quite approachable on twitter. He ended up answering a whole variety of questions (thanks DualShockers) about E3 and other things coming up. First up, we found out that with E3 and Gamescom only 5 weeks apart this year, they are planning both at the same time. But the focus will be 1st party:

Additionally, Xbox will show off more gameplay trailers rather than CGI at E3. Oh this is going to be good. I love seeing all the new stuff at E3, but much of it doesn’t feel like anything worth writing home about if it’s just a CGI trailer for a game that’s far off. This should show a lot more detail about the titles we’re so excited about. Plus, if they’re planning E3 and Gamescom together, here’s hoping that they change what’s on show slightly so that they have new demos and gameplay available across E3 and Gamescom.

Are you starting to get excited for E3 or is it always a disappointment and you don’t want to get your hopes up yet again?

    Halo: The Wild Hunt, Gears of War, Forza, Call of Duty, Kinect. It’s going to be boring. Just like any other E3 Microsoft had.

    If Microsoft announces a console that doesn’t need the internet out of the box, then maybe they can sell more consoles.

    Don’t Support DRM.

          I’m just reading your comments. And it sure seems like you don’t know what first party titles are. That isn’t calling you stupid, that’s saying you don’t understand a term. One term.

            I thought he made a pretty on-the-nose joke about time exclusivity. O_o

            If the topic was exclusivity, the comment would’ve been on-the-nose. But this is about first party titles, of which Tomb Raider is not one.

            It’s easier just to call me stupid than to point that out. Some people need to explain everything and some people explain by making others think.

            Tomb Raider is going to be shown off at E3 by Microsoft. Microsoft spend way too much money on that to not promote it for sales.

            Certainly, and there will be other third party titles on show too. Everyone’s marketing budget is huge, and not paying attention to the bigger 3rd party titles is commercial suicide. However, as per the article, they’ll be adding extra focus on their first party titles this year. Now making first party titles a big deal, instead of the ugly cousin you keep locked in the basement.

            fuck it. Not worth it. I’m stupid. End of story. I actually believe that Tomb Raider is a first party title and I do not know what First party title means.

            My comment will take too long to explain so it’s not worth it. I’m just go with the dumb angle and make you all happy.

    Only exclusive I want to see more of is Scalebound. We already know that Quantum Break was delayed because Xbox has too many exclusives this year…..

            Seriously, SO is the one exclusive I’ll buy a PS4 for. No doubt. It’s just too awesome not to.

            And then maybe I’d have a reason to pick up Bloodborne in a sale, or 2nd hand.

            NICE! We’re best friends now πŸ˜€ but yes, SO is so awesome, I’m incredibly hype for 5. Been waaaaaaay too long!! And Bloodborne? Y no likey Souls tehn.

            I don’t. Still have DS on Xbox 360, and I’ve just never gotten into it. I have been watching Bloodborne speed runs though, and it looks pretty good. I love the steampunk world, and the bosses look awesome.

    XBOX one with 360 games bundled. Xbox one with 360 ports. Slightly worse game releases vs ps4.

    Xbox is history. I love my Xbox when there is Live. BUt there is Halo 4.5 comming.
