We’re full steam ahead on the E3 panel recaps. I covered Nintendo earlier in the week, but today it’s time to discuss the last remaining “Big 3” member: Microsoft.
I feel like Microsoft had the brightest spotlight of all the companies with press conferences this year, due to the fact that it’s chief rival, Sony, opted to skip the show completely. All eyes were on the Xbox brand to see what kind of chaos they could create without having to worry about what Sony was planning.
Not only that, it could also be argued that Microsoft only added to the pressure by announcing plans to go big at this year’s show. Naturally, when you say something like that, fan expectations shoot through the roof, for better or worse.
So, was Microsoft able to hold the show up by itself or did it fail to make good on the pre-show promises? Let’s discuss.
