It’s always beneficial, when you’re introducing the world to your latest console, to bring along a heavy-hitter or two. The mighty caliber of announcement that’ll leave the janitor cleaning attendee’s crap off the seats of Swanky Gaming Conference Room #4 for days to come. What did the Xbox One show have? The cashiest, cowiest cash cow of all, that’s what.
Call of Duty: Ghosts had a tantalizing reveal of its own, with Infinity Ward stating that the game’s DLC installments will be timed Xbox One exclusives (what with Microsoft still having their ballsacks in a vice and everything). Previously, as you may know, they favored us with a little PR bullshittery, pledging to offer ‘a riveting all-new gameplay experience built on an entirely new story, setting, and cast of characters, all powered by a new, next-generation Call of Duty engine that redefines the series for the next generation.’ (-IGN)
Which is all well and good, but what we really wanted was a trailer full of delicious eye candy for our… eyeballs to chew on. Chew away, gentlemen, because they gave us one of those too.
