No VR to compete with Sony and PC? Even casinos are now getting VR games...

Only thing I can hope for is that M$ software goes down for E3 week. Time to renew my Office 365 and Gold if it does...

There is a promo going on for xbox one beta testers, if you want a deal on gamepass plus xbox live (ms combines both to make it ultimate! for both services) . See this thread with some cavets

Update: One of the free games included in the Mixpot has been confirmed to be a pre-order for the upcoming ID@Xbox open-world mystery Outer Wilds. The tweet also says quantities of Mixpots are "limited."

In addition, it has been clarified by Mixer that there are two different Mixpots, one for watching the Xbox E3 Conference on June 10th at 1 p.m. PDT and another for watching Inside Xbox on June 11th at 3 p.m. PDT. Be sure to catch both if you'd like to try and receive all the content available.

I really hope there's some sort of VR announcement. I was hoping that Xbox One X would have supported Oculus Rift.

Really interested to see the Avengers game, not sure if its an exclusive or not. They've screwed up Fable so much over the years that I'm finding it hard to be optimistic but hopefully with a fresh team we get something really interesting. Lost all faith in Rare after Sea of Thieves debacle so I don't care what they are up to but on the other hand I'm really excited to see what Ninja Theory is doing.

Halo Infinite could be really cool if they go full scale open world with it.

As per Phil: "We have 14 Xbox Game Studios games in the show this year, more first party games than we've ever had in the show". Astonished Face

The Sea of Thieves was a disappointment for me. My son and I were excited but once we started it up we were like WTH is this? I suppose it found some success with certain player types but it certainly was not the AAA game many were hoping for. I do not even know how Rare survives churning out this chit.

Yeah it was a huge letdown for me too and destroyed what little credibility Rare had left. People said its better now but I got the $1 Gamepass thing awhile ago and checked it out, gameplay loop is still boring and it remains an extremely shallow experience.

I wonder what improvements they have planned for XBL.

They announced that the PC is getting a curated version of Gamepass with 100 games, MS titles will be added to Steam going forward and some other stuff. Very encouraging news.

This. My son and I were really looking forward to it, only to be incredibly disappointed. I even preordered the Sea of Thieves controller.
