Watch the Xbox Games Showcase 2023 livestream here

The Xbox and Bethesda Games Showcase is happening today and you can watch the excitement unfold right here.

180

Players have come to expect an Xbox showcase around this time each year and the company is set to deliver. The Xbox Games Showcase will go live today, giving players a look at what the teams at Xbox have been working on over the past few years. Here’s where you can watch the Xbox Games Showcase livestream.

Xbox Games Showcase 2023

The Xbox Games Showcase for 2023 is scheduled to start at 10:00 a.m. PT / 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, June 11. The Xbox livestreams typically last at least between 90 minutes and two hours so plan out your day accordingly! Tune in using the video embed below or you can watch directly on YouTube and Twitch.

As for what’s going to be shown at this year’s Xbox Games Showcase, it’s anyone’s guess. However, Xbox has been hyping up the show with some teasers that have got the community thinking. At one point, the Xbox account had a video of glitter absolutely covering someone’s house, leading them to a television. Fans have posited that this could be hinting at a Fable unveiling given that the game uses glitter-like effects to lead the player.

Additionally, it’s been a long time since players have heard anything about Everwild, Perfect Dark, and Senua’s Saga, so more information on those could be expected. Then there’s also Xbox’s staples like Forza Motorsport, Gears of War, and Halo.

No matter what’s announced at the Xbox Games Showcase 2023, you can be certain we’ll be writing about it here at Shacknews. Stay locked to the channel, though, as the Starfield Direct is coming up straight after. Head to our Summer Game Fest 2023 page for coverage of everything announced at this special time of year!

      Predictions? Hellblade 2? Fable? Indiana Jones? Some random shadow drop announcement and release?

      • reply
        June 11, 2023 10:00 AM

        Fable and Avowed both being shown has got to happen today.

        Indiana Jones gameplay footage. Or Wolf 3. Whatever side of things Machine Games is ready to show.

        Persona 3 Reloaded was already leaked. As well as Persona 5 Tactics.

        They'll show something more about Everwild (and it will be ingame since it's a first party game) but it's still going to be a ways away.

        Gears of War Collection is almost a certainty.

        Disney / Xbox tie in with Sea of Thieves this time with Peter Pan.

        I think we'll get something on Ark here.

        My far out hopes and dreams:

        - Perfect Dark including gameplay.
        - Kojima Project.
        - State of Decay 3.
        - Something Brandon Sanderson related.

            I agree awkward gameplay segments is what I miss most from the old E3 showcases. Even if they were kinda faked or staged I still prefer it to the sizzle reels we get now.

          I'd be surprised if they supported it natively, even though I think that's the best way to play the original, but since it's an UE5 title then it should work fine with Praydog's UE Injector when it releases.

        that's fucking awesome. the faction teaser says a lot, and gets us right back into bethesda's decision making matrix for the player. want more combat? join the combat corps and get extra perks and guns and shit, or perhaps join the science guild and such..... very excited

        Just watched it, you know it's nice for sure but I can't think this is just The Outer Worlds plus space travel and more planets which to be fair is amazing but for some reason I was not blown away and I have no idea why.

        I want to see some raw 4k gamepaly videos and not clips/montages in a trailer that would be rad, make no mistake I am going to day one it and love it but for some reason I was not shocked or blown away.

        Feels weird that my hype meter is not bursting if that makes any sense, I blame the trailer maybe.

        All the dogfighting ship stuff and crafting a base / resource trade route stuff doesn't interest me though for 2 reasons:

        1. It's hard enough to make a fps RPG fun let alone also make a fun space dogfighting game let alone a resource management Sim game.


        2. Fallout 76 showed me the Bethesda way of building a base with a controller is dogass. Maybe flipping ship pieces and attaching them is fun with a mouse but I find that stuff with a controller to be no bueno

      Late to watching it, but honestly I’m most interested in Avowed, from the 1st party (besides Hellblade, of course). Love the attitude and love me some dark but silly magic combat.

      Starfield is huge, but is going to hinge on the narrative/missions for me, as I’m not really looking for a semi-procedural sandbox. Then again, I’ve quarantined myself from Bethesda RPGs a long time ago, due to the way they’d make me poopsock. I’m not the target audience for this anymore, but I will come around if there’s a little more life in the story & characters than what they put on display today. I know today’s goal was more a solemn and reverential systems scope showcase, though.

          I think Don’t Nod’s other game, Banishers, has the slight edge for me. Just a very cool idea that takes off from my favorite part of Witcher, and adds the Don’t Nod drama in. But climbing around the environment in Remember Me in particular was very memorable, so it may be surprise awesome.

          I’m also very curious about the Capcom Japanese folkloric horror game. The gameplay doesn’t look too new, from the little we saw, but the vibe and the visuals? Top notch!

      Massive question: for those that watched the Starfield]t direct video and you don't own a Xbox and are a console only gamer(that includes that you have no PC or it is a potato or you neglect it and the GPU crying) are you going to get one? Phil Spencer said Starfield is most likely not going to make people buy Xbox's and I think he is 100% wrong in terms of the console only gamers.

      Thoughts? Sort of insane that they are putting Starfield on the Gamepass if you ask me, wonder why he was not saying the opposite and that "Starfield will sell Xbox's" in that Redfail]o Redfall interview.

        The size of the game is going to make console storage space cry, I’m betting.

              Not really, it's the same size as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II. In comparison to COD: it is open world, has mega textures + 3D models, crafting ships etc and has a massive scale so it is actually pretty small if you think about it.

              But yeah Skyrim is packed pretty tight but then again it had to since it was on the 360 and PS3.

        Microsoft make their money from Gamepass, not Xbox's. Xbox exists purely as a vessel to get people onto Gamepass subscriptions. Whether you buy an Xbox or decide to build a PC, as long as they get your Gamepass money that's all that really matters.

        • reply
          June 11, 2023 3:56 PM

          I know, but you still need a PC or XBox to use the Gamepass so you have to buy one of MS hardware platforms, right? Most are not going to buy a 1-6k PC or GPU and will opt in for a low priced box at $599 or lower at the S level.

          If I was Phil I would pimp Starfield hard core and be proud of it being exclusive and not be afraid to say it will move boxes and people will be over the moon when they play Starfield and it will deliver.

          Anyways I know the concept of buying the XBSX or XBSS on Shack seems like an impossible concept but it happens more than people think and I think it will happen more and more as time goes by for those that are not into PC's.

          Will see I guess in a few months after it's release if it makes any difference in terms of units sold especially if Sony really goes all in on live services. If any sort of game has a chance to move boxes it will be Starfield just like Zelda does on the Switch.

          • reply
            June 11, 2023 5:04 PM

            I think the most interesting metric to see won't be the number of Xboxes that Starfield moves, but how many people with neither a console nor a PC subscribe to Game Pass to stream it. I doubt there's really a way of tracking those numbers or that Microsoft would share them even if they could, but I have a feeling it's a large enough title that you'll see some a lot of folk just picking up a subscription and a controller to stream it.

            • reply
              June 11, 2023 5:31 PM

              Well of all the games this would be the last title you would want to cloud stream since it is an open world RPG. I would bet money there will be more Xboxes sold for Starfield over cloud subs any day, these sort of games you want to own and play for a very long time like Skyrim not just for a few days and then move on.

              Not sure if you are pro cloud gaming but I don't see this happening what so ever, I go one step further and you will see more numbers of new GPUs being bought specifically for Starfield over new cloud subscriptions just to play Starfield.

              If the feedback is that Starfield owns after launch then you will 100% see: new Xboxes sold, new PC bought and new GPU going into current comps rather than Cloud subs going up.

              Anyways I love to see all these numbers after a few months it be really useful and interesting. I guess it really comes down to how good is Starfield and only time will tell.

              That is my take.

                Esports games are what you wouldn't want to cloud stream. A 30fps RPG with heavy controls and baked-in input lag seems like as good a candidate as any for streaming

                  June 11, 2023 7:26 PM

                  I didn't mention the performance and that wasn't my concern it would be with Esports(which I agree), my concern was the time invested in a SP RPG on a temporary cloud platform.

                  As with Netflix and even Gamepass media isn't static and you basically watch it once or play it for a few days and then move on, after time the media can be pulled from the roster and you can't watch or play it again. As an example I don't know anyone that rented Skyrim for the 360 or PS3 back in the day for months on end(or at all) and then was happy to say "I am good, peace to all my time invested + save files". I still play Skyrim to this day and so do my friends and the same can be said about Fallout 4 and the other games in both series. I think it is fair to say Starfield looks massively larger is scale and scope to Skyrim.

                  Basically in my opinion you are not going to play Starfield for a few days plus say good bye and it's a game that you clearly want to own/revisit/play for a very long time just like BOTW or TOTK and any other expansive SP RPG. That is why I said it is the last game you would want to play on a cloud service(in terms of the nature of the game) it has nothing to do with the performance and like I said I didn't mentioned that concern.

                  In terms of performance on the consoles and how it would translate to a cloud service, yeah that would make sense since it is locked at 30 FPS and the majority want/expect 60 FPS.

          June 11, 2023 4:05 PM

          For sure, but you would sort of be crazy not to think that those that are not into PC's and are the console crew only(of have a shit PC and don't upgrade) are not going to want to get Starfield and most likely will get a XBOX and Gamepas just to play Starfield which in turn will move more boxes.

          Gamepass if anything will move more boxes. Those not into computers will get you Starfield for free(well the monthly charge of Gamepass), you just need to get a box and then you are good to go and can play Starfield.

          It's not like everyone has a PC or a PC that can play Starfield so they are going to have to get a Xbox right, I mean Gamepass is not on the PS5 or 4 and the min req on a PC is a: RX 5700 and they recommend a RX 6800 XT which is waaaaay above the main GPU on Steam which is a GTX 1650.

          Maybe I am crazy but I 100% believe Starfield is going to equal more Xbox sales or a shit load of new GPU sales that is for sure, no matter what there will be a jump in Xbox sales for those that are not into the PC you can bet on that.

            I think what will likely happen is that lots of people will buy GamePass not realizing their PC won’t be able to play the game, like parents buying GP for their kids without understanding about minimum specs. Cha-ch$ng!

              Yeah, I think you might be right and then they will go in to panic mode or there will be a mass posting of "Starfield performance sucks on PC" or "Starfield doesn't work on PC MS sucks" not realizing they never checked the system requirements and their comp is under spec :(

              After that point it will be interesting if they get a new GPU or comp or they just get a Xbox, who knows what one will pick but it will be interesting if you could get the stats.

              Regardless of all that I am 100% sold that Starfield will be massive and everyone will want to play it, what that equates to only time will tell.

              I think that was the best deep dive video ever made it was really well done, I hope more do that I really love that style and to see the actual game and the fill in dev design stuff, it felt perfect!
