    This has to be a massive show for MS's sake as they're getting a hiding by Sony, Switch selling like hot cakes, and their exclusives have dried up/delayed/cancelled..... Rumour has it we'll be seeing at least 15 premiers at the show - nice, but I wonder how many are [console] exclusive, and the rumour still persists of Xbox Live online going free - that'd be putting the cat among the pigeons, though I doubt it's true (more a reshuffle/combine with Game Pass)
    Should be interesting anyway!

    I'm going to buy nier automata, one of the games I was really interested that was a ps4 "exclusive", so great in the same console I can play bayonetta and automata, Japanese games are slowly coming to the xbox one, a change in tides of the previous years

    I'd usually say something stupid like "4k shaders mod coming to Minecraft for Xbox one x lol" but I mean they actually did that so I'm out of ideas

    Eh, is Micro$oft really any good anymore? Sony and Nintendo are kind of kicking their butt. I’ll just wait for the Bethesda stuff at 9:30 EST today.

    I don’t think Xbox live is going free but the price being sliced off a bit. I still see rumors they are now splitting the server cost with Nintendo and their other better together partners. I wouldn’t be surprised if they released xb first party titles for the switch. Either downgraded to 720p or through cloud gaming.

    If xb live does drop gold, I could see them adding the two free titles a month to game pass. Like let use choose one game from the pass a month to either keep permanently or something.

    Then there has been a rumor, Microsoft wants to make DLC cosmetics only on xb. No season passes, loot boxes etc. basically if you want your future titles on xb, cosmetics will be the only thing allowed.

    Not sure what to believe. Only thing known for certain is Microsoft wants to change the Xbox brand and how it currently operates!

    Edit: Trying to stay whelmed and not hyped for anything. We’ll know what’s going on in less then a hour!

    They are going to have to bring their A game today, though I mostly predict it will just be third party games and maybe a few first party which are all coming to PC anyway cementing that there is no need to own an xb1

    Doubt that too.

    I'm a Nintendo and Sony fan, so it is really weird for me when Nintendo and Microsoft does more work together. Fine with that, of course.

    Sounds nice. Even cosmetic loot boxes, would be better than that other stuff.

    I'm not an Xbox owner but I really hope Microsoft deliver in this show. As @mightymuffy said, it's long overdue and Sony and Nintendo both need some real competition to keep things fresh!

    Guess we'll find out in 35 mins!

    PC is the only real competition Sony and Nintendo have, and I seriously doubt Microsoft will announce anything today that isn't also coming to PC.

    More backwards catalogues of game, more kinect (like there were no games for it). Perhaps a way to stream your PC games to the Xbox One maybe? Or maybe licensed emulators?
