"And you can glimpse it here - first. Yep, over the next two weeks, until our spanking new issue goes onsale, we're going to play an oh-so-cryptic game of name the, er, game."
GDC is definitely going to be big for Microsoft. Even the head honcho at GDC confirms it to Gameindustrybiz. Expect a lot of megatons from all three companies but especially Microsoft. "BIZ: You get to hear a lot of big news in advance of the show. Last year you knew about Sony's PlayStation Home and LittleBigPlanet before any of us. Will there be any shocking revelations from Microsoft, Sony or Nintendo? What clues can you give us? JM: Well James, do you own a 360? [Smiles] BIZ: What should we expect from Microsoft's John Schappert at his keynote? Why do you think Microsoft chose Schappert (who's new to MS) over Shane Kim or Don Mattrick? JM: As you alluded to in your previous question, GDC keynotes, both speakers and content, are mutually developed editorial sessions of the GDC. As such, we work with the platforms and other speakers to determine if the speaker and the content are a good fit for the show. Based on the content, John Schappert is exactly the right person to deliver this address." http://www.gamedaily.com/ar...
So he smiled and that means something big? Ok.
There are 4 parts, go to blog index to see the other 3. Part 4 is particularly interesting.
Final Fantasy XIV
First off, so every knows for sure, the picture on here is not the one on the website. My comment is that there is a FACE in the screenshot. At the very bottom slightly off center to the right. It looks like maybe some kind of mythic creature, like a goblin. But I'm not sure. Maybe someone could look and see if they recognize the race or who it is. Maybe, World of Warcraft?
if i had to take a guess i wouldnt say project offset. Probably an RPG or MMO'ish type of game but we'll see.
must buy game the wallets already hurting enough this year :( still pretty cryptic sure hope its a killer ip.
lol, we'll see if ms is sheeiting or not soon.
cause eventually it gonna get ported.
CRAPCOM is a 360 whore
CAPCOM makes megaman
Lack of games? The 360 is lacking games coming down the pipeline so they have to milk a game showing only tidbits everyday. Nintendo did that with Super Smash bros.
and guess what?, is on PC too.
"Capcom is a Xbox 360 whore"
No. Capcom is a partner for Microsoft, and they both benefit.
And, I wouldnt be surprised at all. Capcom and MS have been working well together to the benefit of the gaming community.
I dont know what relationship Nintendo has to the IP though. Edit: It seems Megaman has appeared on Sega, Nintendo, Sony and Windows.
Megaman on Xbox 360 is pretty likely I'd say.
Most people are saying the Golden Eye remake but who really knows ?
I think it's something complete different. The screenshots show something in the snow and I don't think goldeneye or project offset are set in the snow. Gears of War 2 would be something really big but I also think snow wouldn't fit into the GoW atmosphere. Lost Planet 2? Not so big at all. 1080 snowboard game - also nothing big. We'll have to wait .. PS: when does the GDC start exactly?
Also the caption pic shown above is NOT the one from the website. Im not sure if it holds any relevance to the article or not.
Here's the pic from the article. Looks like a Planet sort of.
thanks for the tip crusader
i hate all this unnecessary speculation. I hope these guys arent oever exagerrating the word MEGA xbox exclusive. Cus if this is nothing to get excited about i'll be mad. Common msoft you owned last yr with games how bout you at least make an effort to own this yr too
, so expect something like that.
I might be flamed for this but I would take a wild guess and go with crysis.
You not going to get flamed for it. Great post actually. But I highly doubt Crysis would be exclusive on a single console when EA is the publisher of the game.
you never know if they buy its exclustivity like with other games like mass effect which if you calculate is exclusive for exact 6 months!! and this game has been certified with best graphics and the pic depicts the same!! or come to think of it Gears 2 unvieling around GDC?!
Bioware the developers of Mass Effect were independent developers before EA acquired them. EA does not do exclusives. Mass Effect has been announced for the PC btw. I will go on a limb to say, if EA had acquired Bioware before released Mass Effect, the game would have had a simultaneous release on PC and 360.`
MS published it but when it went to EA it started with pc version thats what I am exactly saying Ms had bioware held with mass effect's exclsitivity for 6 months!! so who knows which game rights they get may it be timed exclusive also...
this game has been reported as being a Ps3 exclusive on Gamesradar.com. Doesn't mean things couldn't have changed since then, but I haven't heard anything.
Its blatently Goldeneye.
What the hell is a mega exclusive?
It's a millionth exclusive... ..? -.-'
A 360 exclusive that's NOT coming to PC? I'll bet any money this game comes to pc
A mega man exclusive?
GEARS OF WAR 2!
THE GAME OF THE YEAR FOR 2008.
Don't know if it is just me but Cliffy B is being really hush about a GOW sequel. This might just be the ploy M$ is planning for their next announcement though. Having GDC coming up would be the place to announce it too. Guess we'll see here in a couple days anyways.
Because GTAIV, MGS4, SSBB, KZ2, and Resistance 2 won't be good enough...
Give me a break, man.
GOW was awesome ONCE...but gamers won't put up with a poorly directed campaign TWICE!
EDIT: I take that back...all three Halo's sold pretty well.
Hi, new to N4G.
Exciting news, but why is the caption picture different from the one on the website??
Screenshots released so far for this, the one on our page here is the second one. Check the story images tab
they actually all come up blank for me and WEBSENSE won't let me onto the official site... anybody cut and paste a pic? :-0
Me thinks project offset. Why? check out http://www.projectoffset.co... (looks oddly similair.)
Project Offset was already announced as 360/PC exclusive when the first gameplay trailer leaked to the web so I think this one is not anymore on the list What was mentioned in the podcast? Why do everybody think it's Goldeneye? Any information I didn't get?
Realy, you must know more then me. Didn't know it was in the trailer..
The bloody hell is that?
What, is it so exclusive that NO consoles get it?
I hope for a GeOW 2, GoldenEye wouldn't be that good.
Rare's latest projects have been extremely lacking, although fun.
... Unless Rare didn't make GoldenEye and I know nothing of N64 :/
It's so exclusive only Microsoft emplyees get to play it. You have to apply for work if you want to get your hands on it. The next level of exclusivity is 'ultra exclusive'; only available to God, Jedi Knights, and Bill Gates.
Rare was bought by MS some time ago...and yes, Rare did make Goldeneye and Perfect Dark (which was the real sequel to Goldeneye from a developer stand point, they had just lost the rights to the movie franchise)... But most of the actual people that made goldeneye and PD moved on to form Free Radical...whom made Timesplitters 1 and 2 for the PS2...and are almost ready to ship Haze for the PS3, as well as confirmed another Timesplitters game for the PS3... there is a reason that Rare doesn't make games like they used to...they don't have the people they used to...but Godleneye for XBLA would be absolutely incredible, especially considering the online gameplay that would be included...still one of my all time favorite games...just the idea of Goldeneye with more than 10 feet of draw distance is worth the entry fee...
If it's truly a "mega" exclusive, it would have to be Final Fantasy or some other huge Sony title. You could say it's Gears 2, but it would be misleading since we all expected Gears 2 to be announced eventually.
If its a MEGA EXCLUSIVE it probably must be something people werent expecting.
So I'll say a previous playstation franchise that people would never have imagined on a MSFT sysytem.
If its a RARE game it wouldnt be surprising.
It probably a very good but forgotten franchise that probably hasnt been out yet on Next Gen machines
i would love to see Destruction Derby released again =p on any console that is.
I like what's said above Golden Eye, Crysis or Project Offset.
what is Project Offset?... Crysis would be cool...but, like mentioned, EA has confirmed numerous times that the original is only coming to the PC...its the engine that will most likely be optimized for consoles this year...and there is no doubt a lot of info will be dropped about that this week...the 360 definitely could be getting some sort of Crysis: Vengeance type spin-off or something....but knowing EA, an exclusive like that seems unlikely... but yeah...Goldeneye couldn't really be called a 'mega-exclusive', mostly because of its announcement, then cancellation, then rumored come-back already... but isn't Project Offset already a confirmed game of some kind?...or has it really not been announced yet, just leaked? EDIT: nevermind...just watched the trailer, I remember that from right after E3 last year...that could definitely end up being a 360 exclusive, but the pics shown so far are very closely pointing to Goldeneye...
oh dear god thats goldeneye, look at the last pic, everyone who has played the original would tell you there is not mistake about, that is GOLDENEYE and by the looks of it the graphics will be bumped up to
True. That one gives it away. But why are the other shots so obscure and strange? Something else is going on here.
I only see one picture posted at the CVG link though, where did the other 4 photo's come from? EDIT: I see it now, i didn't realize there was a part 2 3 and 4 up already
... or at least, it should be!
Gow2: Crysis Wars or Goldenye.......the last one.
new one guys: http://www.computerandvideo... The Goldeneye thing might not seem farfetched
They are updating their site right now(special before tons of fans will arrive after they will see gameplay video).
Project Offset has amazing GFX. PS3 killer GFX.
b/c we already knew about it being PC/360 "exclusive" months ago. I don't think they'd make that big a deal of it. I bet that offset will be shown though, so they're ramping up the site for increased traffic. Oh, and yes, the trailers i've seen are truly epic. If they can have it work like it does in the trailer on the 360, then yes, PS3 killing graphics. It looks incredible... I have no clue, but offset is kinda old news..
looks like it's Goldeneye. so I guess MS decided to make it work, they need the good will and maybe noticed the petition to resolve the issues that were holding back the XBLA release???
anyway, did n4g accidentally prematurely posted all images at once because the last one in the Story Images tab is a dead giveaway...?
Yea that last pick kind of takes the mystery out of it. I don't see that pick on the story, there are only 4 part's, none which with that picture.
But I was all about Goldeneye back in the day, and I don't see how that pic is a dead giveaway...please explain.
how many hours till GDC??? i really want to know what's going on
2 more days.
The pictures in the middle are a piece in the puzzle...they probably show off the floor, try join them together you'll get a complete picture...the last picture is definitely form the first level of Goldeneye...and the other two snow...the ones in the middle are basically gravel and the other two culminate into the newer version of Goldeneye or a spy themed game form Microsoft...Perfect Dark 2 anyone????
This has potential to be really disappointing. Like, Gears of War 2 or Alan Wake. I hope it's a game we don't know about.
Any news about Alan Wake or Gears of War 2 is anything but disappointing.
Those are going to be landmark games, and we all know it.
Is not on CVG website...that a speculative pic posted by the contributer...check out this picture I managed to piece together
And that's all i gotta say about that !!!!!!
