E3 2014: Microsoft Press Conference Round Up
As far as Microsoft is concerned, E3 2013 was just absolutely terrible for them. The company was looking to turn that around this year with a show that focused solely on games. There were no frilly speeches and sales pitches about how great Skype is going to be on my Xbox One.
Instead we got a few words from developers here and there and in some cases videos featuring a number of devs to segue into the next trailer which was actually a great little mechanic. What really dominated the show was the games.

Microsoft was not lying when they said this would be a conference all about the games. We got 90 minutes purely focused on the games and it was glorious. There were plenty of trailers and bits of gameplay for third-party titles but we also saw a bit more of Microsoft’s exclusives including the stunning Sunset Overdrive. That game just has so much character.
We got something interesting in new IP’s Scalebound and Inside as well as the official reveal of the sequel to last year’s Tomb Raider, the announcement of AC: Unity co-op and so much more. Check it all out below or if you’ve got some time, watch the entire conference up top.
