After reading Xbox head Phil Spencer’s interview with Polygon I have high hopes for the Xbox Series X Game Showcase. Xbox has acquired some tried and true video game developers over the past few years. Companies such as Undead Labs, InXile Entertainment, and Rare just to name a few.
Microsoft picking up a variety of developers is a sign that a diverse genre of games will be revealed. The developers of games such as State of Decay, Sea of Thieves, and Hellblade are under the Xbox umbrella. Companies of this caliber are sure to bring some top tier games to the Xbox showcase. Phil Spencer even made a point to say,
I honestly think we’re in the best launch lineup position that we’ve ever been on Xbox,” Spencer said. “When I think about the strength and depth of the games that people are going to be able to play day one on Xbox Series X — not only because of [backward compatibility] — and the way that Game Pass really allows the total cost of ownership of our console, I think is a real strength.
My expectations are high for Microsoft’s Showcase. They had plenty of time to create gameplay filled live stream experience. Including Halo Infinite, I would like to see at least 5 AAA Microsoft Exclusive with actual gameplay. In short, since the price of the consoles is not expected to be revealed during this live stream profuse amounts of gameplay will suffice.
