With Microsoft's E3 2017 press conference out of the way, let's take a look at what we liked and/or disliked about the event.

With Microsoft’s E3 2017 press conference behind us, I think it’s safe to say that there’s a plethora of emotions going through us at this very moment. Microsoft came out this year with the intention to leave E3 with a bang. And with the reveal of the Xbox One X, I think it’s safe to say that — in some capacity — we all have some varying levels of opinions and/or emotions.

Aside from revealing their newly engineered console, which packs quite the punch, Microsoft fed us a cluster of games; some exclusive, some coming to other platforms. Nonetheless, one of the things that I felt that stood out is the company’s strong, cemented footprint in ensuring that their ability to do “true 4K” with these games was one of the highlights of every reel.

We were shown the likes of the beautiful Forza Motorsport 7Metro: Exodus, and the long-awaited Crackdown 3, which was finally given a release date. Adding to the list of titles shown, we were finally treated with gameplay reveal of Anthem, which, I think we can all agree, looks absolutely amazing, with a string of other games blessing the console in the coming months.

More than drowning in our own thoughts, what we really want to hear (or read, to literal) is your opinions on Microsoft’s E3 press conference. Was it everything you were hoping for? Do you feel the Xbox One X price point is fair? What do you think could have made the conference more impactful, if anything? Let’s open this up in the comments section, folks, and get some conversation going.
