    I feel like I must have misheard.

    That seems a bit unreal.

    CPU/GPU 4x XBO-X.
    SSD 40x XBO-X.

    I really must have misheard. There's just no way.

    Interesting trailer for Halo 4.

    SHIVERS. They found the Master Chief. Oooooooh.

    I seriously have goosebumps.

    Awwww, Cortana missing. :(

    Probably mixing cpu improvements. From jaguar to zen 2 there is a nice jump in performance.

    I think the biggest "megaton" for me from this conference was the resurrection of the Flight Simulator IP. And man did it look absolutely gorgeous.

    CyberPunk 2077 was the best part of Xbox E3. Overall, 8/10. Show took a nosedive after CP 2077.

    Nearly every game shown had a bit about being included in Xbox Game Pass.

    I heard Hardware Ray Tracing but that can still mean many things.

    Completely agree. The highlight for me. The rest of the conference had little gameplay, already known things and little to no suprises. In the HW side, nothing really that sets them apart from what Cerny said in the Verge. Wise move to talk about PS5 before E3.

    Disappointed by Halo Infinite. No gameplay and meh trailer. Why the hell did they need a beefy PC for that ?

    Highlights of the show: Microsoft Flight Simulator and...the controller Elite 2 trailer.

    EDIT: They were most probably talking about the Zen 2 CPU with the 4x multiplier

    Pretty much confirms a pcie 4.0 SSD which easily fits the 40x figure.

    No Gears 5 SP game play footage is ridiculous. Why would they old this until Gamescom is dumb as fuck given that the game is launching in 3 months and we have never seen anything other that pre-rendered & CG crap (oh & screw MP!)

    I'm surprised they showed as much as they did for Halo: Infinite, considering it wont be released until Holiday 2020.


    Same here, well those and throw in the Forza Horizon 4 LEGO DLC.

    Age of Empires 2 Definitive Edition and Flight Simulator, along with Elden, Blair Witch, some japanese games and indie games, the return of Cortana?, were the best things of this E3 for me.

    No Miyamoto though :/
