Xbox at e3 2014

At E3 2014, Microsoft finally got it right by covering new features that gamers actually care about. This was a huge improvement over its press conference during E3 2013, when it hit gamers with statistics no one cares about, spent too much time on the Kinect and focused on marketing the Xbox One as a TV companion instead of a gaming machine. Microsoft remedied this by announcing a bunch of new games during its Xbox E3 2014 press conference

Call of Duty Advance Warfare

The Call of Duty franchise has always been available as a multi-platform series. However, there are few developers that show off games like Microsoft. During its press conference, the company showed off "Call of Duty: Advance Warfare" on the Xbox One. This installment of the franchise showed the gamers what warfare may look like in the future with a heavy focus on new technology such as laser rifles, bug swarms and homing grenades

Forza Horizon 2

Microsoft isn't just known for getting great versions of multi-platform games. It's also known for its exclusives, including "Forza Horizon 2," which was revealed during E3 2014. Despite just being a realistic driving simulator, Microsoft gave us a look at some of the game's new features such as the ability to join driving clubs of up to 1,000 drivers. If that's not enough, gamers can also enjoy driving over 200 cars and engaging in multi-player races at almost any point during the game

Sunset Overdrive

Microsoft took E3 2014 to a new level by showing not only trailers of future games but also live demos. Ted Price from Insomniac Games showed off "Sunset Overdrive" during the press conference. The demo gave watchers a little taste of the in-game action and some of the wacky weapons that they will be able to get their hands on when the game is launched on the Xbox One

New DLC for "Dead Rising 3"

Most of the announcements that people heard during E3 were fantastic but unavailable to them right away. Microsoft changed that by showing off some new DLC for "Dead Rising 3" that was available right after the conference. The DLC featured new outfits that were inspired by other Capcom franchises such as Mega Man and Street Fighter. This is just one of the ways that Microsoft strives to bring new features to games that have already been released on the Xbox One system.
