    Wow, what a crazy day we had yesterday! The pre-E3 festivities kicked off with Microsoft's press conference, outlining their future plans for the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Without further ado, let's break down what Microsoft had to offer.

    Xbox 360

    • Xbox 360 has been redesigned again. Quieter, smaller, on sale now
    • Beginning July 1st and running through to the launch of Xbox One, Xbox LIVE Gold subscribers will get two free games per month starting with Assassin's Creed II and Halo 3

    Xbox One

    • Release Date is set for November
    • $499, no details on extra sku's
    • Partnering with Twitch for live streaming on Xbox One
    • The first DLC for Battlefield 4 will launch first on Xbox One
    • Marketplace is going to list things using real dollar amounts, no more Microsoft Points
    • Exclusive titles include: Sunset Overdrive, Killer Instinct, D4, Project Spark, Dead Rising 3, Titanfall(XB1, 360, PC), Halo 5, & Below
    • Key demos and trailers shown during the conference include: Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain, Forza 5, Quantum Break, Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Battlefield 4, Witcher 3, & Project Spark

    Those are the cliff notes, ladies and gents! All in all, I thought it was a solid event. It was MUCH more focused this time around on what is most important - the games! And they brought them all in full-force. The most intriguing thing I saw was the new "Drivatar" feature in Forza 5 that uses cloud computing to replace the standard car AI with that of your friends and other players online. The cars you are racing against will use the same behavior and tactics as that of real players. Sounds really interesting! For the full press conference, check out the video below!

    Nice write-up Briankbl! Appreciate you sharing this. The exclusive games look very impressive! Although Microsoft focused more on games this time, it still looks like they will have an uphill battle considering Sony's stance on "no DRM" and no "always online." I think the Xbox One will be a huge success, but it will be a hard fight for it to best the PS4.

    It's a tight race, but since E3 started, PS4 is now ahead of Xbox One in preorders.

    I just thought you guys would like to see this. A great deal of misinformation has been spread about games licensing on the Xbox One. That was definitely Microsoft's fault since they handled the release of info so badly. They are trying to clear it up though and the new policy looks to be even better than the PS4. With the PS4 you can lend one person your physical copy for them to play. On the Xbox One, because it is digital you can lend it to up to 10 family or friends at the same time.

    There are more details than just that, so here's a link to the full article over on our Xbox One site: Microsoft Finally Clarifies Xbox One Game Licensing Details in Writing

    That article is from last week and has not gone over well with the Xbox community. Read it carefully and you'll see it's exactly as anti-consumer as it's always sounded. The PS4 is infinitely more lenient with used games as there are no new restrictions whatsoever. So no, their used game policy is not better than Sony's, my opinion of course.
