E3 2014 Microsoft Conference Thread: June 9th 5:30 PM BST

Perhaps the most significant change is at the top. Replacing the bumbling, android-esque Don Mattrick with the far more affable Phil Spencer, is being hailed by many across the industry as a sign that Microsoft is serious about getting gamers back on board, and at his first E3 as president of Xbox, Phil will be looking to make an impact. Xbox One already has a hugely promising set of games announced, including: Halo 5, Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, Fable Legends and the enticing looking user generation tool, Project Spark. Now that the ID@Xbox program has had time to mature, expect Microsoft to make up ground amongst the indie community, by ensuring they get a good shot at the spotlight, likely in a similar fashion to Sony's Indie showcase last year. Microsoft have a lot of rumoured games in the pipeline too. The most prominent is the leaked Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which will feature HD remasters of Halo 1 - 4. With this and the inevitable Halo 5 showcase, expect E3 2014 to be a big deal for MS's 343 Industries. Another popular franchise heavily rumoured to be making a return to Xbox One, is Forza Horizon 2. The open world racer has been a strong fan favourite, and will be well positioned to go up against Sony's Drive Club this winter. We could also hear the first details about Black Tusks' Gears of War, even if it is just in the form of a CGI trailer, and similarly, Crackdown 3 may get an announcement trailer, although the game itself isn't rumoured to be arriving until 2016. Of the credible rumours floating around, this final one is probably the most interesting, and if true, will do much to sell me - and others I'm sure - an Xbox One. Project Nagano is the apparent codename for an Xbox One exclusive developed by action kings, Platinum Games. Of course Platinum have their good days and bad, but anything which smells even remotely like Bayonetta or Vanquish will almost certainly sell me an Xbox. On the services front, I imagine they'll talk about their next dashboard update, reveal more details about how Games With Gold is coming to Xbox One (cheers for the update Cosmic_Guru), and we'll hopefully get some insight into what their plans for Kinect are, now that they seriously need to incentivise people to buy it. More unlikely, is a reveal of their AR Fortaleza Glasses in response to Sony's Project Morpheus. It would seem like the wrong place to unveil the tech - if indeed they are still working on it - but who knows, it could be a way to give a game focussed show an injection of variety. Conference Review: In many respects, E3 was Phil Spencer's moment. After taking control of Xbox, Phil has had one message, Xbox is about games and this E3 was his time to prove it. One thing I think people forget about E3 2013, is that whilst policy announcements stole the show, MS were true to their word on making their E3 showcase all about games, arguably announcing a better set of exclusives than either Nintendo or Sony. They stuck to a similar strategy this year, and from the moment Phil took the stage, (but after offering a humble, almost contrite introduction to those watching) the game announcements just kept on coming, and didn't stop until the lights went down. Sticking with a long running tradition, the show opened with Call of Duty and was quickly followed by the unveil of the highly anticipated Forza Horizon 2. The show kept the pace up, with showcases for third party titles, Assassins Creed, Dragonage 3 and The Division, as well as some fun looking DLC for Dead Rising 3, which was announced as immediately available to download. The biggest third party reveal came in the form of Rise Of The Tomb Raider, which - awful name aside - has jumped to become one of my most anticipated titles for 2015. Sticking with 2014 though, and we were given a further look at E3 standout, Sunset Overdrive, along with create 'em up, Project Spark. The latter of which received a surprise outro from Conker. Although some bemoaned the implication that this meant MS was unlikely to deliver a full Conker title themselves any time soon. Unlike the previous year, Indie titles got a nice chunk of time. ID@Xbox head, Chris Charla was on hand to introduce a range of exciting titles, the highlights of which were Playdead's Limbo sequel, Inside and the gorgeous looking, Ori & The Blind Forest. Rounding out 2014's roster was the reveal of the - sadly - leaked title, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, a remastering of Halo 1 - 4, featuring all the campaigns and original multiplayer modes, remastered at 1080p and 60fps. The collection is going to be available this year and all for the price of a standard game. With the known quantities out of the way, MS went on to reveal an early look at a reboot to Phantom Dust (a game I'd have to confess to not being familiar with), and more excitingly, Scalebound, a large scale action game (with added dragons), from the masters of the genre, Platinum Games. The show closed out with the announcement of an Xbox favourite, Crackdown, helmed by original creator, Dave Jones, the game is said to be utilising the contentious cloud tech to bring added physics to some of the larger scale set pieces. Conspicuous by its absence was any mention of Kinect. Either as a utility or as a game input, a fact which more or less puts to bed any notion that it will be used as a serious control method for games going forward. So there you have it. Phil stayed true to his word that E3 was going to be all about the games, and games is what we got. With no time dedicated to anything else, the show did at times feel a little like an expanded shizzle reel, so whilst they arguably cut the fat, they also lacked a variety in their pacing. Sadly prior leaks took the edge off many of their surprise announcements, an over reliance on CGI trailers blunted some of the excitement of their reveals, and a lot of third party games were given time many had hoped would be dedicated to first party exclusives. All of which left me initially underwhelmed by MS's showing, but in putting these links and text together, it's impossible to deny that they came out swinging, and showed off a lot of strong content. They have a stronger 2014 lineup than either Sony or Nintendo and Sunset Overdrive could very well be game of the year material. I'll be keen to see where MS is after a year of Phil's leadership.

Do you care about gesture control?
Mentazm posted a topic in DiscussionAs per title. MS are putting all their eggs in one basket by bundling the Kinect, that no gamer I know wants, with the Xbone and adding a hefty margin on to the price. My question is, and one MS should have asked as a dashboard poll on 360 or something, Do you care about gesture control? I don't. I feel like an idiot shouting voice commands, I hate controlling games with gestures. Nothing is as accurate as a pad or keyboard and mouse.

Now that they have at least clarified their position regards DRM and online connectivity, I'm sure they will be hoping the road is now clear for a memorable E3 show. Insomniac Games delivering two Xbone exclusives (GAF Rumour) Big unannounced 360 exclusive Mirrors Edge 2 Classic Rare franchise coming back Respawn Studios "Titan" will be a Xbone exclusive 360 Redesign League Of Legends going console Xbox exclusive Dead Rising 3 What They Need To Show: ... and they bit didn't they, bit down hard and just kept going in spite of everyone around them waiving their arms about, warning them of the consequences. Xbox One could well be the most disastrous hardware reveal by any major game company... ever. Their online and used game policies have rightfully drawn the wrath of gamers and media alike. Can they turn it around? Well for many, nothing short of a complete reversal of the aforementioned policies would be enough to sway them, but for those willing to suck it up and play ball, then MS will be looking to shower you in games. With journalists being largely shut out this year, and rumours of yield problems resulting in a down clock of the systems already weak GPU, Microsoft need to have the best E3 imaginable to sway gamers opinions on the system.

Xbox Display - IllumiRoom by Samsung / Microsoft
hub2 posted a topic in Discussionhttp://www.engadget....om-with-images/ So basically there a projector in the TV (and elsewhere?) that projects part of the game on to the walls, ceiling, and floor of your room to immerse you in the game. Looks pretty cool, but gimmicky. Edit: Original thread from September 2012 about the patent:
You know what is killing the tv and movie industry? Besides pirates? That's right, it's your scummy student friends coming over and watching a movie at your place. For the price of one (1) rental. zomg! You scum! Luckily Microsoft is coming to the rescue! http://www.geekwire....ing-tv-viewers/ Fucking awesome! Thanks Microsoft! (goes off to point Kinect to a miniture model of his living room with one green army man facing it.)

Xbox One Console Thread
mushashi posted a topic in DiscussionI was requested to add this Google spreadsheet for people to share their gamer tags: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1EHykfNx3wKSen3j64cCP2Bgr9tusBPtPXkitPAPAMxM/edit?usp=sharing Fixing a 'Bricked' Console (Green boot up screen, then hangs at black) Your console is not bricked you are fine. No need for the USB recovery either - since the 1603 build you can self recover via this cool method Try this: Hold down the power button on the front of your Xbox One console until it fully powers down, unplug the power cord, and wait 30 seconds. Please note the console must be fully powered down; the next steps will not work if the console is powered on from connected standby. Plug the power cord back in. PRESS the POWER Button then Hold down the Bind button (located on the side of the console next to the USB port) and the Eject button (located on the front of the console next to the optical disc slot), continue holding down Bind and Eject until you hear a second “power up” chime. Then SELECT Reset this Xbox - This Troubleshooter takes the User to a page that allows them to select full reset or reset but keep content (this allows you to keep your installed games and settings!)

E3 - Microsoft Conference Thread (June 4th)
Robo_1 posted a topic in DiscussionTimes: UK: June 4th 5:30 PM BST EU: June 4th 6:30 PM CET US: June 4th 9:30 AM PST US: June 4th 12:30 PM EST Video Streams: http://www.xbox.com/en-gb/e3 http://e3.gamespot.c...e/microsoft-e3/ http://www.gametrailers.com/e3/ http://www.g4tv.com/.../microsoft/131/ http://www.youtube.com/user/E3 In addition, Gold members can watch the entire conference from the comfort of the dash. What Are We Expecting: With 360 entering it's twilight years, MS are expected to be focussing on service and content announcements, with the highlight being the unveiling of their 'Woodstock' music service, which is largely thought to be MS's answer to Spotify. Another big focus of the conference will likely be the recently leaked 'Smart Glass' app, which will widen the reach of 360 to iOS and Android devices. The true wild card are rumors of some type of new hardware reveal, that isn't the next Xbox. There has been evidence that MS have something in the works, which many initially speculated were Durango developer boxes, but more recent murmurings suggest that MS could be going for a revised 360 model. On the games front, it looks as though MS will come out a lot stronger than many perhaps feared. Halo 4 is almost certainly going to be their big title, but recent leaks/announcements of a new Gears of War (developed by Epic owned People Can Fly), and an open world Forza game should keep the core happy. Doubtless Kinect will take center stage, but with Fable: The Journey, a new Panzer Dragoon, Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor, along with an exclusive Harry Potter game and Ryze, we should hopefully see more interesting demonstrations than the usual run of awkwardly stage prepped children fitting on stage. On top of this, MS's show is almost certainly going to feature the first big look at the next Call of Duty game (even though I wouldn't bet against Sony nabbing them this year, to showcase their Vita title) and along with a healthy showing of third party titles, all things being well, MS should have a decent show ahead of them. What We Got: ...seriously, I don't know what more to add to that..... well not today anyway. Well, all credit to tnman again, who has put together a great bullet list of what MS delivered: Halo 4! Splinter Cell Blacklist FIFA/Madden Kinect Fable The Journey trailer Forza Horizon Gears of War Judgement Tomb Raider 9 Resident Evil 6 South Park: The Stick of Truth Dance Central 3 Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 New dash functions, including Bing search genre. Fuck yeah. Lots of new apps for sports Xbox Music Nike+ Kinect Xbox SmartGlass, like Apple Airplay, can supplement content with maps of where characters are in TV shows. Internet Explorer coming to 360 New IP: Ascend: New Gods New IP: Loco Cycle (Twisted Pixel's new game) New IP: Matter New IP: Wrecketeer (Angry Birds rip-off)
