Yesterday’s Recap – May 21st, 2013

gamesaga yesterdays recap logo Yesterdays Recap   May 21st, 2013

Well yesterday was the big event we’ve been waiting on for a while now. Microsoft unveiled their next Xbox console. It’s called Xbox One and we live blogged the event and you can check out the recap of that in post links section at the bottom of this post. We didn’t get to post that much yesterday due to my being busy at m day job apart from when I covered the Xbox event during my break. We did have some concept art from Killer Is Dead and some video footage from Atelier Escha & Logy: Alchemists of the Dusk Sky. We also had a couple images of the Xbox event tent before the presentation was live. We should hopefully have a lot more on the site today.

So what do you guys think of the Xbox One? I thought it sounds like a cross between Xbox 360 and Wii U. I did get some of my predictions right in my final thoughts Top Storitorial I wrote on Monday night. I’ll discuss that in more detail in a separate post. I know they said they weren’t going to show a lot of games, but I still think they should’ve showed at least 1 or 2 more. We didn’t need to spend that much time talking about Halo TV or the technical side of the console. Tech specs are more for press releases and fact sheets. But I get why they did it. I mean they need to save something for E3 after all. Plus they’ll be at Gamescom as well this year, presumably bringing the new system and games with them.
