    Microsoft Paying Third-Party Publishers to Not Show PS4 Games at E3 2013 – Report

    Microsoft is allegedly paying many third-party publishers so that they won't show off their PlayStation 4 games at E3 2013, according to a new report.

    E3 2013, the most important games convention out there, is set to begin next week, and both Microsoft and Sony are expected to focus heavily on their next-gen consoles, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, respectively.

    In order to gain the upper hand on Sony, Microsoft is apparently resorting to some unorthodox practices, like paying a lot of money to third-party publishers so that they won't show their PlayStation 4 games either on stage or at their actual booths.

    The report arrives from a source on NeoGAF, which posted a lot of true rumors in the past, so it's possible that Microsoft really is resorting to such tactics ahead of E3 2013.

    The company emphasized that at the event it's going to focus only on games for the Xbox One, so it could try to create a false sense that more games are coming to Xbox One than PS4.

    Morale of this story is; When in doubt, throw money at everything.

    This would be extremely, extremely funny if it turns out to be true.

    Wow... just wow. Well I hope it backfires on them just like the reveal and the press release. Seems like they've been doing nothing but damage control or attempted damage control since the reveal.

    Screw games. Let's waste money on timed exclusives and paying off publishers to not show games at Sony's conference.

    Microsoft is a joke even more so than Nintendo. At least Nintendo is for gaming.

    The devs will probably be like: "Hey, I got a couple million dollars! I'll just hold off showing my epic new game for 20 minutes... "

    In all seriousness, Microsoft is really desperate and are trying everything they can to blur the fact that the XBOX One will be a complete failure.

    This is stupid, it amazes me how a bit of bad press turns into a witch hunt . It makes no sense for them or the publishers to do this .

    Sure it does. Sony forced their hand by showing off early and now they have to scramble to look good. I seriously think that if Sony hadn't said anything at all until E3, a lot of different things would have occurred as far as the xbone is concerned.

    They surely wouldn't have gone with the vhs look. To me it seems like they just took the first prototype design and ran with it just to be able to say "ha ha, at leas we showed ours."

    If the rumors are true in this thread here ( RUMOR: Microsoft next-gen titles up to six months behind schedule ) then it makes even more sense because that way they can say "we got more games than Sony showing ha ha" all while having FUCK ALL to show.

    So the publishers are not going to show there games off at the biggest event in the gaming calendar for a one time payoff from Microsoft, the money earned could cost them twice as much in the long run, this is just stupid and not true . Also if they are for both console why would Sony agree to not showing the games ???
