Xbox One: It also plays games!

xbox-one-banner-2While much of today’s Xbox One announcement was dedicated to showing how the console will function as an all-in-one center for home entertainment, Microsoft didn’t ignore the games completely.  Read on to check out what next generation titles revealed.

With E3 mere weeks away, Microsoft understandably kept the focus of their presentation on the Xbox One itself.  But you can’t have a console unveiling without showing off a few games, right?  First up is Forza Motorsport 5, which is confirmed to be a launch title.

Next up is Quantum Break, a new game from the makers of Alan Wake, which supposedly “blurs the line between gameplay and television.”  I wonder what they mean by that…

Whoops, sorry.  That’s the wrong video.  Here’s the real one.

Now for a look at a number of new games from EA Sports, including FIFA 14, Madden 25, NBA Live 14, and EA SPORTS UFC.  All of these game run on EA’s new IGNITE engine, which I’m assuming stands for something really important like Ignorant Gnomes Never Instigate Technological Evolution.

Finally, there’s Call of Duty: Ghosts.  Running on a brand new engine and storyline, Ghosts seems to be a welcome fresh start for the franchise.

I think it would be best to not get emotionally attached to the dog.  It’ll make its inevitable demise a little easier to handle.

Believe it or not, that’s all the games that were shown off at the event.  While Microsoft promised 15 exclusive titles withon the new console’s first year, they weren’t in a hurry to show them off.  We will undoubtedly be seeing a lot more at E3, so keep your browsers locked on Save Game!

Actually, you don’t have to do that.  Just promise to visit occasionally, OK?  Is it even possible to lock a browser window?

    Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original Metroid was released. His aging heart can’t take the shock.
