Why Microsoft Lost E3 (Badly)

Xbox-One-FLAT-gaming

“We don’t have any plans specific to Xbox consoles in virtual reality or mixed reality,”

Quote from Mike Nichols chief marketing officer for gaming via Game Industry.biz interview.

Previously when hyping their new Xbone 1 X 1 X Scorpion X 1 back at E3 2016 Phil Spencer (fans hailed xbox saviour and head of Xbox) said on stage that the Xbox One X would become the industry’s next VR-compatible console, positioning the platform to compete with Sony’s VR with what he called “high fidelity VR.” …Well so much for that!

Whilst watching trailer after trailer of mostly 3rd party games I was waiting for some mention of cutting edge videogames but only flat/retro gaming was shown. Still Cyberpunk 2077 looked interesting especially as it was created in first person to allow for a possible VR version futher down the line – which clearly won’t be coming to Xbox.
