On a side note, I forgot to mention it earlier but Recore looks pretty awesome.

Yeah! I got a Beyond Good and Evil vibe from it.

I got a definite Enslaved vibe from it. Same for Horizon at Sony's show, for that matter.

Thanks to several for clarifications about the backwards compatibility stuff. That would have interested me a great deal if it was for all, or even most, 360 games but I'm not impressed with the details I'm hearing. 


Virtual Console on Wii U doesn't let me throw out old consoles because the selection of games is kind of pathetic. It's a nice perk and sometimes very convenient, but certainly not a replacement.  XBone/360 compatibility sounds like the same deal: certainly a nice feature but not really that significant, and certainly not something that makes XBone a 360 replacement system. (Plus there are the added caveats of arriving a bit late and MS having a dubious record of what "compatibility" really means based on 360 results.)


So I'm sticking with the Rare collection being super awesome, and backwards compatibility talk being overrated until proven otherwise.

Gears 1 "Ultimate" Edition and Killer Instinct are coming for PC (Windows 10 exclusives, i am guessing?).

If KI will still be free, there will be no reason not to check it out.

Gears 1 is whatever, unnessary old port is unneccessary.

Sony won this year. Microsoft did pretty well though. Hololens will be awesome, but priced out of practicality.

I'm struggling to think of a more boring experience I've had of late than watching this PC "Press Conference." Why'd they label it that? It's NOT a Press Conference! It's a 3 hour Treehouse Live-style thing with guests interviewed by a host, which HAS its place but it's not a press conference.

I didn't even know there was a PC section for E3. Turned it on, immediately fell asleep.

Free, and if you did buy any content on Xbone it'll carry to the PC.

OK, full credit to Jim Sterling, but this clip really does sum up this PC Press Conference:

I dunno, I'd give it to Microsoft. Sony had bombshell announcements, but they were mostly things I don't care about (FF VII, Last Guardian), and things that are years away.

Got my Xbox One yesterday. So far I really prefer the Dual Shock 4 to this controller, but that may just be being more used to it.

I think the Xbone Controller is better for the most part, but the menu and snap button or whatever the other button is are oddly placed and their functionality is inconsistent.

Watching Microsoft conference.

Scalebound being an RPG is a disappointment of a year for me. It looks like a Dragon's Dogma only with one huge dragon instead of several pawns that you give commands to.

Because of it's RPG nature combat will be designed more with grinding in mind instead of player's skill and fast reactions. And having a cop-op will compromise it even more.

Quantum Break and eleven other announced first and third- person shooters look underwhelming, slow and boring just like all shooters. They had the chance to learn something from Vanquish in how to do fast shooter with time mechanic but instead they did generic shooter with time slowdown that makes sure you are invincible at all times.

Pretty sure they had Prince of Persia-looking character in the opening montage, hopefully it will be announced later -- show is not over yet...

Just Cause 3 looks great, but that's gonna be on PC.

Yeah, this Gamescom presentation did absolutely nothing for me overall. Quantum Break looks even more generic than it did last year, Crackdown 3 looks really weak aside from the destructable building angle, and Scalebound is a re-skinned Final Fantasy 15 w/ a Dragon as your teammate. Couple that with TV, TV, TV, Sports, Sports, Sports, E-Sports, and some REALLY generic shooter action in Homefront 2. Honestly, the only game to come out of this presentation looking better is Tomb Raider, where it's VERY clear folks at Crystal Dynamics have been taking notes from The Last of Us.

I'm pretty sure that's supposed to be a pirate from Sea of Thieves, Rare's new game.

I'll be the counter-point here in that I enjoyed the presentation. Scalebound and Crackdown 3 have tipped the scales slightly in Xbox One's favor as I have yet to commit to either a PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or a new PC.

I have yet to be truly tired of the shooty-bang-bang as I thought Quantum Break, Homefront: The Revolution, and other shooters look kinda neat.

I finally spent some time with an Xbox One, and played Sunset Overdrive. The game is pretty, I really like the bright colors. I didn't play it long enough to wrap my head around the controls. The controller feels weird. Cheap plastic and too narrow at the top for me. The console UI was crap awful, but I guess they are updating that?

Yeah. The New Xbox Experience dashboard update should come Fall 2015.

It will depend on how Christmas goes but there is a high probability that I will be getting an Xbox One soon. I am mostly interested in a handful of games but they are not going to be on PS4 so it's worth it now that the price is coming down.
I was planning on getting a new PC for the Windows 10 stuff but I just got a Windows phone so I might pick up the Xbox instead.
You can call me Mikey if my username is too long.
My favorite games are: Minecraft, Star Wars, Mario, DK, Zelda, Ninja Turtles, and Call of Duty,
I own Wii U, PS4, PS3, and PC.
