I'm just expecting Halo. All I want to see and everything else is just a bonus.

Plus I can quote this later on after everyone else was disappointed lmao

Halo looks like a 360 game.

The Youtube compression makes it look like crud, the gameplay is already uploaded though.

Just so we're all clear, that halo gameplay looked amazing to me. The graphics were crisp and most importantly, it looked fun

Oh I'm just saying how much fun it looks to play.

I'm not really a "graphics are everything" guy

Edit:. The obsidian games looked pretty good. Not sure how much I'll like grounded but I'll give it a try

Still looks worse than a lot of current gen games in 4K60 but Halo games never look good graphically IMO. They also personally do nothing for me gameplay wise though doesn't really matter how it looks.

Still nothing so far that has swayed me from Xbox being nothing but a Forza box to me. Barely having anything to show for it and saying it is early in development (What have Turn 10 been doing since 7 since they only assist in Horizon?) makes XSX an easy pass at launch. But even Forza at launch probably wouldn't have made it a day one.

The fact all this is on gamepass has me super happy.

Annoyed that my destiny 2 file (never got the expansions) are on PS4 though.

The IGN stream is a lot smoother than the Game Awards stream.

Well, I got what I came for lol

Overall I think it was on par with what Sony showed. Both companies holding back some game for later in the year.

The only reason Sony had the edge imo was the hardware reveal. I feel like there was still more gameplay shown by Sony, a lot today was still CGI trailers.

...ehh, jealous about Psychonauts 2 and Game Pass remains a good deal, but none of the other games looked impressive, Halo honestly just looks like the same as all the others. Not gonna sway me from the PS5 I’m afraid.

Can’t believe they didn’t announce a date or price. Insane we’re about four months out now.

Honestly, I would just pick up a One S to play all these games on. They're like £200 or less used and for the amount of exclusives it can play it would be the perfect partner to PS5.

This is MS trouble for the first two years. I don't feel like I saw a game today that looks like it couldn't work on a current gen console. Which I guess is because they pretty much all have to since MS have dedicated themselves to playing on base xbox for at least 2 more years.

3rd parties are the ones that have free reign to release Series X exclusives so I guess we have to wait for them.

The biggest thing for me is that every one of those games will be essentially "free" with GamePass and GPU.

GPU works out at less than £100 a year. You can play all of those new games and more for less than the price of 2 brand new games.

I'm more hyped to play all this on my PC/One S than anything else. GPU is probably the greatest thing MS have brought to the gaming world.

Overall, I'll give this Showcase event a B+
I'm just glad Microsoft listened to us gamers by starting to build up a more diverse stronger library of 1st/2nd party games. Looks like the Xbox Series X will be a huge improvement over the Xbox One after all since Microsoft now has more studios on their side.
And all the games shown here today I'm really looking forward to several of them. But if I was to do my top 5 most anticipated Xbox Series X games, it would certainly be Psychonauts 2, The Medium, Halo Infinite, Fable, and Everwild.
This event was so much better than the previous event last May.

I know they didnít, but it would have been the show stopping moment and the first one out of the gate. I know they really just baiting the other company to go first to undercut them, but itís kinda insane at this point that we really have nothing going forward in regards to when weíre gonna get our hands on them.
