XBOX slammed PlayStation in a recent reveal for the Xbox Showcase.

Taking place on June 11, Xbox is getting ready to announce upcoming games for 2023/2024 in its own Xbox Showcase.

PlayStation held its showcase in May, featuring over 30 games coming to PS5 and PS4 through a variety of cinematic trailers and extended gameplay previews.

Xbox has revealed new details about its showcase which will feature a number of big first-party Xbox games.

There are rumours about what will be shown, from the long-awaited Fable reboot, to more footage from Forza Motorsport.

The showcase will also last around 2 hours – opposed to PlayStation’s 1.5 hour showcase – and will be followed up with two more shows.

Fans are most excited for the Starfield Direct which will finally allow us to see more from Xbox’s biggest first-party release this year.

Both of these are followed by the PC Gaming Showcase which will show more games available for Windows PC.

Most PlayStation fans say they were disappointed by the console showcase, which focused on live-service games.

Fans were instead hoping for more information on PlayStation’s big single-player narrative adventures.

Gamers thought that tweets from Xbox’s vice president of marketing, Aaron Greenberg, were taking a swipe at PlayStation’s lacklustre showcase.

He wrote: “None of our first party games in the show are full CG trailers. 

“Everything is either in-game footage, in-engine footage, or in-game footage with some cinematics.

“Each of our trailers will be labelled so it is hopefully clear for our fans.”

PlayStation had a number of cinematic trailers at the event, which is what players thought Greenberg was referring to here.

Which console company holds the better showcase, we won’t find out until the middle of June.
