Microsoft’s E3 2018 conference has come and gone, bringing along a slew of new games with it. And by a slew, we mean 50 whopping titles. Microsoft sure wasn’t kidding around during this year’s E3 2018 conference. We’ve seen a pretty solid lineup for the Xbox One, including Halo Infinite, Forza Horizon 4, Devil May Cry 5, and Dying Light 2. Let’s not even forget that surprise Cyberpunk 2077 story trailer at the end of the show!
And, of course, we’ve seen plenty of reactions from the people on the internet. Microsoft has really set the bar for E3 2018 this year, and the netizens are loving it! From memos to memes, Twitter’s been buzzing with all sorts of juicy responses from the Microsoft E3 2018 conference, and we’ve got the best ones right here!
One of Microsoft’s biggest problems over the recent years was their lack of focus on their exclusives. After announcing a handful of new first-party games, they astounded their audience with upcoming titles such as Gears of War 5, Forza Horizon 4, and Halo Infinite. On top of that, they’d also been stressing the importance of choice and encouraged players into playing games their own way by pushing boundaries and expanding their options in the market.
With Microsoft being the first to present out of the big three gaming giants, there was a lot at stake. Not only did they have to impress fans with bigger and better games, but they also had to set the stage for the coming days of the event. This year, they came prepared with a collection of third-party announcements that was nothing short of spectacular.
In an attempt to diversify the Xbox One’s growing library, Microsoft has been traveling around the globe to meet and collaborate with new partners. We’ve seen their efforts pay off with upcoming titles such as Kingdom Hearts 3, NieR: Automata, and Jump Forces. They’re also expanding their games with new DLC for Cuphead, PUBG, and Sea of Thieves, as well as acquiring five new studios. With these recent revelations, we can’t help but wonder what the future of the Xbox One holds.
That said, not everyone took too kindly to the latest news. While Microsoft has given their best effort, they can’t really impress all of their consumers. Some fans were left feeling a bit lackluster after the show, having hoped for something more.
Meanwhile, other netizens are looking forward to seeing how the other E3 2018 press conferences will stack up to Microsoft’s presentation. The company has set the bar pretty high, after all. What other surprises do Sony and Nintendo have up their sleeves this year?
Overall, Twitter pretty much seems to agree that Microsoft managed to deliver during this year’s E3 2018 presentation. The announcements for new first and third-party games helped hype up the event, setting the expectations for this year’s conferences. After acquiring five new studios, perhaps the Xbox One could see a bigger and better library in the near future. E3 2018 is far from over, however, and more games are just around the corner!
