Xbox Exec: We Set Some Wrong Expectations With May Inside Xbox Show

GM of Xbox Games Marketing Aaron Greenberg has commented on some of the negative reception to yesterday's Inside Xbox show. Ultimately, a lot of the criticism has stemmed around the event's general lack of gameplay demos (particularly for Assassin's Creed Valhalla).

A fan on twitter defended the event, pointing out that trailers and sneak peeks, as well as gameplay, had all been advertised for the event ahead of time. Greenberg responded with the following:

"Had we not said anything & just shown May Inside Xbox show like we did last month, I suspect reactions might have been different. Clearly we set some wrong expectations & that’s on us. We appreciate all the feedback & can assure you we will take it all in & learn as a team."

Yesterday's show was packed with exciting upcoming titles for Xbox Series X, but it's fair to say the event as a whole didn't go down as well as some fans expected. That said, it's nice to see Microsoft acknowledging the reaction and taking feedback ahead of its major first-party show coming up in July.
