Rare Working on New Xbox 720 Game

While at this years Gamescom, a source close to Rare told TheGamersHub that the first-party Microsoft studio was hard at work on another Kinect Sports title – a Kinect Sports title slated for release Microsoft’s next console. (Microsoft, Next-Gen, Rare)

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 14

Not surprising that they would do another right as Sony is about to release Sports Champions 2.
Bigpappy  +   1147d ago
Nothing to do with Sony pal. The second Kinect Sports has already been released, and this is a NEXT GEN Kinect game. Sports Champion 2 is this gen.
dc7070  +   1147d ago
lol what does Sony have to do with this trolling much?

Kinect Sports is a huge franchise for Kinect it's obvious their would be a Kinect Sports 3 for the next xbox.
Gildarts  +   1147d ago
This site is trolling, all other rumors are indicating that its going to be a core game, this is the first one saying its casual kinect game.
Stansolo  +   1146d ago
Now if it was a next gen game that was in development called Jet Force Gemini, Blastcorps, Perfect Dark 2 or Killer instinct I would be very happy.
The_Infected  +   1147d ago
My bedroom is to small for Kinect or even Kinect 2 so I don't really care.
hellvaguy  +   1147d ago
There are alot of gamers that dont live in a bedroom of thier parents house. Just sayin...
The_Infected  +   1147d ago
I got my own apt I just like to game in my bedroom. Not everyone has a mansion or games just in the living room.
dc7070  +   1147d ago
So why did you comment on a Kinect article that's weird. Seems you do care.......
ConstipatedGorilla  +   1146d ago
He secretly cares. To make himself feel better, he talks about how he doesn't care. I do that about ladies I like, but can't get.
ALLWRONG  +   1147d ago
There is an add on that shortens the distance of Kicect to 4 feet. Also MS has already said their goal for Kinect is to work in every room, I'm sure Kinect 2 will do that.
userwords  +   1146d ago
Yes there is human overpopulation and lot of people live in small claustrophobic spaces, not microsoft fault. Vote for natality limitation, and let people play on their bigger rooms, and living rooms.

The future is immersive and that requires space if done right. Kinect sports 3 probably will be amazing, as long as they include soccer.
maawdawg  +   1147d ago
If it isn't Killer Instinct 3 I don't care what Rare is working on.
DOMination-  +   1146d ago
It isn't. Confirmed the other day.
WeskerChildReborned  +   1147d ago
Never really was interested with Kinect.
Reverent  +   1147d ago
Let's see... Out of probably 70 million Xbox systems that have been sold, less than 20 million Kinect units have been sold... That's a good 50ish million people that also don't give a crap about Kinect. Also, if you subract atleast half of that for the people that either regret buying a Kinect, or resold them, that leaves like 10 million.

Btw, that's just a joke, but you get the idea. Microsoft really needs to rethink their marketing strategy.

did it hurt to take this invented numbers from ur ass

u should be analyst, they also get their funny numbers from their anal-it-is
Reverent  +   1146d ago
I did claim I was joking, no? Btw, it's already fact that at least 66mil Xbox consoles have been sold along with at least 18mil Kinect... That was in January. I was estimating the time difference. But whatever, it's not like I care. Xbox is cool and everything... But it's no PlayStation.

"Let's see... Out of probably 70 million Xbox.... Microsoft really needs to rethink their marketing strategy."

You do release MS break a guiness world record for fastest selling consumer device ever? Im not being pro-kinect, just pro-facts, which u sir did a complete face plant.

I mean you can fanboy your favorite piece of plastic (everyone does it to some extent), but at least dont embarass yourself.

So you found it logical to click comment on this article?
NYC_Gamer  +   1147d ago
It's sad that Rare is now nothing but a Kinect studio
Reverent  +   1147d ago
I was playing Donkey Kong 64 the other week after reminiscing on how much I missed playing the Nintendo 64... And damn, Rare has gone a LONG way from where they used to be. Which *was* nothing short of amazing. Now... well, you know.

Kinect-Instinct on its way. ;)
slimpickens  +   1147d ago
Oh gosh no!!! Please don't give them any ideas or better yet yeah give them ideas because that appears to be what they don't listen to.

You need a 360 first and Kinect before you can say "more Kinect crap" because it doesn't impact you.

Sports? Cmon, give us old guys Viva Pinata Kinect, that's what were interested in! Lol :p

Bathyj  +   1147d ago
Thats an idea.

Viva Pinata was the best game they've made since Conkers on 64, (if you dont include Conkers on Xbox), and its slow pace could work well with Kinect.

If they have to make something on Kinect, this would be good. I doubt it though, not enough mass appeal.
Summons75  +   1147d ago
but it probably won't be a proper Banjo-Kazooie 3 =[
ChunkyLover53  +   1147d ago
Rare is said to be working on multiple next generation games.

Considering BigPark was behind the majority of Kinect Sports 2, I'd see Rare maybe helping with a next gen Kinect Sports, but I can really see that Perfect Dark reboot.
sandman224  +   1147d ago
Boooo! This will give me reason to stick with Sony on the ps4
IHateYouFanboys  +   1147d ago
wait, what?

Rare, a first party microsoft developer, working on a game for the 360s successor, somehow gives you reason to buy a PS4? care to elaborate?

i dont understand the need for articles like this, seriously. if a video game developer intends on releasing a game in the next generation, they need to start making it. we KNOW there is a follow up to the 360 coming. we KNOW there is a follow up to the PS3 coming. thats fact, not rumour. the specs are the rumours. first party developers working on games for their owners new system isnt really news.
sandman224  +   1147d ago
I want a real game not a kinect game. Maybe a killer instinct game that would blow my mind, I'm just tired of hearing about kinect. The only thing kinect did was cater to the casual gamers and took away from the hardcore. I know there was a lot of money involved on making kinect and it's games. That's money that could be used for new ip's and more exclusives.
ALLWRONG  +   1147d ago
If this comment was in a Playstation post it would have been removed by now
urwifeminder  +   1147d ago
But i thought alot of you guys dont like ms and xbox but here you all are towing the line secretly must really like the system so many of the same folks upset by rare and exclusives or lack of not many xbox players seem to care.
-MD-  +   1147d ago
It'd take a new Perfect Dark for me to drop money on another Microsoft console.
wages of sin  +   1147d ago
Yeah, I guess they should just close Rare, kind of like Sony did with Sony Liverpool.

OT: Rare is doing fine, I like their work on XBL and Kinect not to mention games like Kameo, Perfect Dark and Viva Piniata. Somebody had/has to do it and it has to be an internal developer. Rare was the best choice.

That doesn't mean they won't do other games in the future that aren't Kinect related. You're just hating because it's Microsoft. If it was Move you'd be singing its praises.

But barely anyone cares-let alone knows-what Move is so I guess it's a win by default for MS.

@sandman (a few posts above)

What the hell is a "real game?" Explain to me how Kinect games aren't real games. Am I imagining playing games on my Kinect?

@wages of sin

sandman is in this....ah...imaginary elite group of "hardcore" gamers supposedly. That is why he think kinect aren't games. Hopes that helps.
