    In it for Cyberpunk 2077 demo, let's see how a 6tf console handles a supposedly next gen optimized title. Also very keen on seeing Metro and maybe a new Gears.

    Thats my subtle dig at what some are saying what to expect, not what we're allowed to talk about. Its easier to see the pattern when you look at the Sony and Nintendo thread titles. :lol:

    Probably best removed. They confused me too, plus Sony don't have a conference this year same as Nintendo, so the joke's kinda lost. ;)

    As for conference, 15 unannounced games will probably make this best presentation of E3, whether exclusives or not. There's a chance to see something new and interesting and exciting that's distinctly lacking in other presentations based on what's known thus far.

    Alright, my anti-e3-hype flavor text has been scrubbed from the thread titles. It was so tedious creating all the threads with details as well as ordering them in actual E3 occurrance order too. (Yeah, my cdo kicked in there).

    3rd party announcements are absolutely critical for MS here. Takes a while to get first party going so they really need to showcase why their console is the best place to play 3rd party games. 4K HDR, Dolby, 120fps, freesync etc is expected to be thrown around.

    Coupled with a rumoured price drop for X1X and Xbox its a better position than where it’s been at for the last couple years.
