For those who spend time staying up watching Microsoft events in the E3 2019 framework this morning, the feeling may be eager but a little disappointed. It was agreed that the Xbox had brought E3 this year, with 60 games, the works that were introduced, were brought here to announce the release date, and the new names were also available. But the somewhat discrete, uninformed Xbox Scarlett introduction itself threw away the opportunity to win fans in the rare event that Microsoft owned almost all of the show, not with Sony like every year before.
Even the debut of actor Keanu Reeves to introduce Cyberpunk 2077 is just a detail that makes the online community admiring, but it is impossible to make the Xbox the winner of this year's E3 season. In contrast, despite not attending, but with exclusive Death Stranding on the PS4 introduced last week, followed by Call of Duty Modern Warfare (which has been cooperating with PS4 for many years), and this morning as Final Fantasy VII Remake is also exclusive on PS4, Sony is proving their power. Need to spend money on E3 events while still being able to attract attention with other publishers' games for PS4?
Go back to the performance of the Xbox Xbox this morning. They do not lack attractive blockbuster games, with works like Gears 5 or the return of Master Chief in Halo Infinite. The Gears 5 itself has nothing to complain about, with the trailer introducing the storyline and introducing the Escape mode to be fun for the coop brothers. But its September release is very close to Borderlands 3 and Destiny 2: Shadowkeep, which are two role-playing shooters with a coop play similar to Escape of Gears 5. Suddenly Gears 5 pushes itself into a difficult position when competing with two other waiting blockbusters.
Fable 4 has no information, an unhappy news for brothers who love Microsoft Game Studios role-playing games. Meanwhile, Halo Infinite was chosen as the launch game for Project Scarlett, meaning that it will be released around the end of 2020 or at the beginning of 2021. But outside the trailer introduces Master Chief and the return of Cortana. , almost nothing else. Without gameplay, nothing. The Microsoft E3 2019 slide shows themselves are all the same, full of cinematic look but it is impossible to know how the game will play. It was a shocking place, especially when I was running Borderlands 3 and Cyberpunk 2077.
Continuing with the Xbox Scarlett, the opportunity is almost huge for Microsoft to take advantage of Sony in the next generation of next-gen consoles in 2020. Unfortunately, they threw the opportunity away with an innocuous clip. Machine design is not available, hardware details and game demo are also not available. Only hardware information, AMD CPUs, SSDs make virtual RAM, speed up game loading, and support 8K. It is no different from Sony's announcement. Sony also provided the same information as Microsoft last night, but what they needed to do was just invite a Wired reporter to Sony headquarters and let him interview the chief architect Mark Cerny. Just that, Sony was able to attract the attention of the whole game community, instead of going to E3 to announce as Microsoft.
Microsoft didn't even have the confidence to introduce Xbox One X. At that time, they called Xbox One X "the most powerful console in the world". They are not buoyant, because the hardware power of the Xbox One X is definitely better than the PS4 Pro. But now they call Project Scarlett "the most powerful console we've ever created." This worries many brothers. Does this mean PS5 will have superior hardware power? What makes Microsoft "sneaky"?
But, for a fanboy John Wick, just having Keanu Reeves on stage, Microsoft has won a huge plus. When the new Xbox and PS5 are released, the war begins, then it will compare later, and now, Microsoft still has a lot of work to do to regain its position in the past, when the Xbox 360 surpassed the PS3. many years ago. E3 2020 will certainly be more attractive than this year.
