Microsoft bets on early DLC and short list of exclusives at E3 2014

Video Games
[MUSIC] So we all knew what Microsoft had to do at their press conference here at E3 but did they deliver? Well sort of, Phil Spencer came out here and said the entire press conference. It's gonna be devoted to games. And while it was, it wasn't necessarily exclusive Xbox One gaming. So let's get to the exclusives first. Sunset Overdrive has to be the biggest exclusive for Xbox One coming out this year, and we've finally got that exposition for the game that we've been needing so bad. We have an idea of where it's gonna take place,. What the characters are about, what the back story is a little bit, and we have a vibe about what the game is actually going to be like. And I think that was really important for Microsoft to convey. Sunset Overdrive has a very comedic sort of storyline and I think that's a refreshing take. The game kind of makes fun of itself, so I'm really looking forward to that. But when it comes to other exclusives that Xbox announced here at their press conference, it was a little light. We saw that a new track is coming to Forza five Motorsport, and we also heard the announcement of Forza Horizon two. Then we got a game play demo of Fable: Legends later this year. Also the entire Halo franchise is getting an HD remake for Xbox One. And you can also mix and match missions throughout all four games in your own sort of mixtape campaign. It's pretty cool. We got him! So what else in terms of exclusive for XBox One? Dead Rising 3 is getting DLC first for the game. Cosplay as your favorite Capcom character. Go! Harmonix came out and said that they're gonna be giving us a new dance central spotlight game that will be download only for XBox One and Connect. That was really the only mention of Connect during the whole show. Finally in terms of exclusives. We found out that PlatinumGames is working on a game called Scalebound. And Crackdown is coming back to Xbox in a reboot specifically for Xbox One. Microsoft's got a lot of catching up to do on the independent gaming front, and they sort of made a push for it with ID@Xbox, which is their independent publishing platform. And we saw sort of a highlight reel of games we can expect to see on that platform this year and beyond. So that really does it for exclusives to XBOX1. [INAUDIBLE] The messaging to me was that Microsoft is gonna be banking on timed DLC that's gonna hit XBOX1 first. We saw that with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. We saw it with Evolved. And we're also seeing it with Tom Clancy's The Division, from Ubisoft. we'll have to see how that works out. Plus there's a few exclusive Xbox One titles that gamers can finally start getting excited about. That's it here from their press conference at E3 2014, I'm Jeff Bakalar for CNET. Thanks for watching. [MUSIC]
