Microsoft will be having a big stream YOUTUBE VIDEO related to Indies and a few non-Indies (recently announced) that will be helping increase the value of the Xbox One service. There will be a few "surprise" announcements included in the show as well. This will be the last conference (scheduled) before E3 and will serve as an appetizer, or that's what they are attempting to do.

Though a full line-up hasn't been announced, Microsoft did mention a few by name including Afterparty, Void Bastards, and Supermarket Shriek. So we will get to see more of those at some point along with several other games and a few surprises.

The Streaming will start at 12PM and I will include the Stream links closer to them being live.

RUMORS

1. Either 25 or 30 games will be shown.
2. 5 or 7 of the games will not be Indie.
3. 10 Surprise announcements.
4. All announced will be day 1 on Xbox Game Pass.

5. Surprise feature addition to Xbox Game Pass will also be announced.


YOUTUBE VIDEO DROP (NO STREAM):

Ori and the Blind Forest on Switch seems very likely at this point. Since Microsoft and Nintendo are officially in bed together, I wouldn’t be surprised if this gets eventually announced.

Nope, all announcements here are Xbox One Game Pass.

Isn't this stream specifically about indie games on Game Pass though?

Wow, I hope those rumors are true. 5 to 7 non-indies, 25 or 30 games total, and 10 surprises?

Oh yeah, just noticed it was going to be focused on indie games for Game Pass, my bad.

But hey who knows what could happen really. Remember they mentioned that they will be a “ few surprise announcements “ so let’s just hold our breath.

My gamepass sub is getting ready to expire. I bought about 18 month's worth when the price was glitched at $5 per month. I've played just about everything on the service currently, and digitally own about half the games on offer anyway.

Game Pass is an insane value though - if they show stuff I'm super interested in here, I might be tempted to stay subscribed.

Ori coming to the switch isn't exactly a surprise that's going to get fans riled up. Also the surprises are also for game pass. Ori's not coming. You already got Cup head on Switch, that's good enough.

So, MS is finally going to let us see the all digital Xbox one. I bet that's one of the suprises.

Maybe they're going to offer optional streaming for GamePass so you can decide which you'd prefer before you play. Most likely not, but that would be cool.

State of Play yesterday was rather underwhelming but this sounds like it may be more interesting. My hopes are rather low, as E3 is the big showcase for Microsoft.

I forgot about that. It surely is one of the surprises. Maybe not for me as I still prefer physical copies, unless something on GamePass catches my eye.

All these sites talking about preparing for Live Stream, all the Xbox media accounts talking about a stream, heck, the original announcement days ago was talking about stream.

We even got stream times.

Nope, Youtube video pre-recorded. h well, better than nothing. Maybe there are surprises in there.

Well, I'm glad they spent a lot of time on Afterparty. Here it is, cued up, for those that missed it:

Like I said yesterday with the PS event (if you want to call it that), not sure why there has to be so many streams/shows - two big events a year, maybe, and I could see a very long event for indies but you have to have top tier indie games there. People get burn out, if you're not actually showing them stuff they really want or could get excited for.

I'm convinced you hate this industry.

I'm not even sure what to think of the downright lie that there was going to be a stream. Also they hyped up a good amount of indies and yet this video theres a handful and it's going to be in episodes. This is episode 1.

Man all the tech company "streams" have been garbage this whole month of march.

When they over market stuff, it becomes very strange and weird. Too much budget for marketing., if they want to make and release great games, good..... otherwise, overkill.

And they didn't even announce anything, not really - I still have no idea what they are actually selling. Its so strange.

Not sure why Microsoft and Sony release date/times for a video reel, for nothing burgers.

It wasn't supposed to be a video reel, it was supposed to be a live stream.

Some fun looking games coming. Sony should take notes... this 13 min ID@Xbox video was much more digestible and interesting than the 20 min marketing clutter reel Sony showed yesterday. The inclusion of actual people in front of the camera goes a long way imo. Really enjoyed the quick dev sit down as well.

Please tell me how they over marketed Concrete Genie, Blood & Truth, or Ghost Giant.

Also, no matter how good a game may be, if it isn't marketed well, it won't sell. Remember Okami or God Hand?

Well God Hand actually got several shit ratings from reviewers to be fair.

You're mad at them for talking about games? What's next? Mad for them making games?

Where the fuck did the OP get all those rumors from?
Anyway, nice little indie stream.

it wasn't a stream.

Even though it was announced to be one. and outlets reported on it and even linked to pages on their sites for where to watch the stream. Then they decided no stream here's a YouTube video, and they are separating it into multiple episodes.

This is only Episode one with a few games shown, completely different from the promised Stream of multiple games and surprises.

Who cares? Why are you you so upset over this being a upload video instead of a livestream........................that then gets uploaded has a video?

And you didn't answers my question. Where the fuck did you get 5 non indie games and new XGP features from? I've not heard anything like that MS.

It's literally called ID@xbox gamepass, meaning new indie ID@xbox games coming to gamepass.
Like wtf?

You're not very smart and that's ok, let's try reading the post your responding to this time.

The Issue was that IT WAS ADVERTISED as a live stream, to the point sites had feeds open expecting one, and they scrapped the multi-game live streams opting for Youtube videos that are episodic.

If you still don't get why that's an issue well I am not sure what to tell you.

First, trying to attack my intelligence while you're losing it over an indie video isn't, well, smart.

Second, i saw how many had streams open and barely anyone was live. Spawn wave, YongYea, and many others who tuned in for SoP yesterday weren't streaming.

Third, you cut off the rest of my question. Whatever, i'm done with this.

I'm not mad, haha, you appear to be mad because I am pointing out something obvious. Its silly over marketing.

(You're on my ignore now, have a nice life)

They are indie games as far as Concrete Genie, a little bigger title, but we've seen it a few times now. Why announce an event which is just a video, its not really an event? Just release the video when its ready.
