Final Thoughts

Lots of games announced and revealed which is fantastic. Plenty of older fan favorite series making a comeback like Phantom Dust, Halo, Fable and Crackdown. Microsoft also wanted to emphasise that they are listening to the community by topping off with a ‘We’re listening” quote from Phil Spencer. Some games didn’t really make an appearance I would like to see was D4 and Halo 5 (at least some gameplay).

Overall pretty happy that they’ve showcased lots of games, wish they would acknowledge the Kinect as it was really avoided during the whole conference.
