Microsoft talked a lot about the Xbox One's entertainment services during its may 21 unveiling, but the company didn't spend a lot of time talking about games. Yesterday, at its E3 press conference, Microsoft unveiled the full line up of games for the Xbox One. This includes the likes of Halo for Xbox One and Forza 5, which we heard about in May as well as a ton of others, like Killer Instinct, Ryse: Son of Rome, Mincecraft, and more.
"Microsoft Studios is committed to making Xbox One the best place to play games, with more titles in development and more exclusives coming than at any time in the history of Xbox," said Phil Spencer, corporate vice president, Microsoft Studios.
The full lineup of Xbox One games unveiled by Microsoft at E3 includes Battlefield 4, Below, Crimson Dragon, D4, Dead Rising, Forza Motorsport 5, Halo Xbox One, Killer Instinct, Kinect Sports Rivals, LocoCycle, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Minecraft: Xbox One Edition, Powerstar Golf, Project Spark, Quantum Break, Ryse: Son of Rome, Sunset Overdrive, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, and Zoo Tycoon.
Not to be outdone by the new kid on the block, the Xbox 360 is also getting some killer content this year. A trailer for Xbox 360 games highlights GTA V, Fifa 14, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Disney Infinity, Lego Marvel Super Heros, Skylanders: Swap Force, Fable Anniversary, Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, Rayman Legends, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, Saints Row IV, State of Decay, 2013 Disney Phineas and Ferb, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, World Series of Poker: Full House Pro, Lost Planet 3, Ascend: Hand of Kul, Payday 2, Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse, and Deadpool.
The Xbox One is due out in November and is priced at $499. That price will net you the console, Kinect, and a controller.
The pre-orders say otherwise, either way MS had a better showing at E3 than rival Sony. MS showed more actual games with gameplay where as Sony just showed off CG.
Dead Rising 3
I guess you were sleeping during E3, MS was strong last gen and they will be strong next gen.
Can't wait to play Mincecraft.
As a previous XBOX fanboy, I have to say that Sony walked all over Xbone. Sony LOL'd so hard at MS for anything DRM and used games.
PS4 is the clear winner for next gen console. Not to mention Planetside 2 on PS4!
Fair enough however we will see which company is on top in 12months, either way I will be buying both consoles. As far as DRM is concerned digital downloads on the PS4 will have DRM tied to your PSN account. Physical disc are a different story, and you will have to pay to play online on Sony's network. For me as primarily a PC gamer I could careless about DRM, I do not own disc all my games are on Origin and Steam.
At this time PS4 is the gamer friendly console and it cheaper, however judging by E3 MS has a stronger line up of games and maybe that enough since gaming is the primary function!
