I might just hangout in this thread for the next 2 hours, can someone DM me the link to the XboxEra discord?

I just want Starfield to be a quality product, gameplay from most of the games shown and one big game for 2022

the Xbox 2020 show had me extremely hyped. I think that was my most excited show because we knew of these projects by their codenames but never had an idea of how the worlds would look or anyhting.

I’m ready!

Looking back, 2020 was the unfortunate timing for Xbox because of pandemic. They can only say “We’re working on this game. Hope you can enjoy it soon.” PS was already on it as people have said PS5 was established since 2019 while Xbox waited well into 2020, the pandemic era.

2021 was more prepared as people got back to working under remote developing. The console was updated to the point it’s more ready than before. It’s why we got many gameplays from various developers. Now, earlier, 2022 is where we go back to normal, albeit a new normal. A normal that have people working under the same building along with some that stay home. If it was done earlier, perhaps Starfield would have made the deadline.

Looking at this year, I believe game developers are back to at least 80% strength in developing, while back in 2020, it was cut significantly. That’s why the hype for this year’s showcase is strong. Sure, we may not get anything this year, but much like PS with Horizon, GT7, and GoWR, we will get them eventually.

The thing about Xbox is their transparency. It’s strength and weakness. We know what games they’re making but we will be updated on when and how the progress via “rumors” or “reports”. As for PS, they decided to do more of hiding than actually revealing this time around. I mean if GoWR does come out this year, all it’s left for next is Spider-Man 2. That’s pretty light despite the sale will do numbers. Are their studios doing well or struggle due to pandemic? Possibly the latter, but who isn’t.

So this year will be very interesting to see Xbox Showcase as this is more around the time of normal lifestyle. The fact the sales for the console is still strong proved that despite the lack of first-party games this year or at least low numbers depend on today’s show, the trust has been established.

Watching the XboxEra WatchALong live and then the Official Xbox when the official high-resolution 4K VODs are available. The live streams always pale in comparison because Twitch and YT are not up to Mixer technology level.
