Microsoft’s Exclusives Failed To Make A Dent On Social Media During The Xbox E3 Presser

Microsoft’s first party woes continue…

The big problem with the E3 showing that Microsoft put up yesterday was the utter lack of compelling exclusive software that would induce people into springing $500 for an Xbox One X. The sad part, however, is that even the exclusive software Microsoft did show doesn’t seem to have made much of a mark at all.

According to an analysis by Brandwatch, who looked at social media chatter during the Xbox E3 presser, the games that got the most limelight are all games that can be played on other platforms in addition to Xbox. Assassin’s Creed Origins was, predictably enough, the most talked about game. Dragonball Fighter Z, Life Is Strange: Before the Storm, Minecraft, and Metro: Exodus round out the top five. While Minecraft is a Microsoft property, it’s available on literally all gaming platforms- and indeed, the big announcement relating to it yesterday was full cross play and parity for the game across all platforms (excluding PlayStation), so not even something that benefits Xbox.

This is an indictment on the state of Microsoft’s current first party efforts. Unless Microsoft can up its investment in compelling first party games for the Xbox, its time as a console manufacturer will be fraught with problems.

    Dude get off the rant you sound wounded. Xbox heard all the feedback and knew what they were getting into with these okay showing but went ahead. Only time will tell if they made the right bet. last E3 everyone said announcing 2 consoles was bad but it worked out fine.

    It’s unfortunate, since the game finally got a proper presentation. To be fair SoT is that kind of game that needs to be played to fully capture what it has to offer (the same as PlayerUnknown, and I wish SoT the same success).
    Water and weather effect were mesmerizing, probably the best and the most realistic sea ever seen in a game so far.

  • So what? The Xbox is a UWP PC that happens to be able to play games.
