How did this come about? Did you sit around the office saying “Hey we should have a non-stop, action packed press conference.” Then you decide it would be a great idea to parade all of the games that we know and love across the stage. What happened to the original IP’s? Sure you gave us LocoCycle and Matter, but you didn’t show anything. Am I suppose to walk away feeling encouraged about this fall and next spring?
The need to give fans something new was the only thing you needed to get right, and what did you give us? Xbox smart glass. Unneeded. Xbox Music. Nope Xbox Nike-plus. Fail. Oh, and then Usher. Really what were you thinking? I’m so disappointed by the lack of creativity… don’t feel bad though I’m sure you won’t be the only company who parades around the stage with old presents. The only and I mean only thing that was mind blowing was Tomb Raider, and why is that? Because it is a reinvented franchise, not a new game, but it’s Croft in a new perspective. Now if only other companies would think outside the box.
