I highly recommend watching the Xbox press conference on their Mixer channel www.mixer.com/xbox and make sure your gamertag is linked to the mixer account.

I'm not sure what the rewards are in the "mixpot" but last year everyone got Rare Replay just for watching it.

I've also received a Sea of Thieves pistol skin on mixer, too!
Thanks for the heads up. Rare replay for free?! I’m not sure they could trump that but I love an incentive!

Sounds like there might be two different mixpots this year, one for watching this and another for watching the inside Xbox stream tomorrow that... well... is on at the same time as the Sony event.

Hearing alot of buzz around the Xbox conference i think this one has the potential to be the best one Microsoft has had in years, wondering how many third parties are gonna show up.

I could sling it on my TV, whilst watching Sony's conference on my tablet, I guess. At least for as long as it takes to stick my hand in the mixpot. ;)

I feel like I’m at the cinema watching all these trailers back to back. Very well produced so far.

It reminds me of a Sony conference a few years ago where they just sat back and showed a load of trailers for awesome games.

You wonder whether Sony will show too much complacency.

What’s this? Ninja theory...?

Interesting move, announcing recently acquired studios.

Yeah, Microsoft is looking really confident in their output so far.

The whole ninja theory acquisition deal leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

My thoughts exactly.

I hate the “exclusive” soundbite. Especially given most of the games are not exclusive. It’s just marketing tactics for people without an attention span.

Yeah, it's a bit misleading.

I loved the low-key shade they threw at DmC. :lol:

Dying Light 2 looks brilliant. Just started the first one and it's awesome so far.

I’m sad about ninja theory. Clearly they’ve forgotten that Sony saved them from bankruptcy and backed hellblade.

Great coup for Microsoft but I’m surprised. Perhaps Sony thought the same as me that goodwill would stand in the way of this happening.

There's alot of "launch exclusive" there which is just to pretend that Microsoft has exclusives, these studio acquisitions are they basically saying: "We got nothing to show now but we will have in the future".

But man these third parties showings are strong I marked out there for a second because I thought they were bringing back Battlestadium DON back XD, and man Chris Avellone is writing Dying Light 2!
