i wonder will it be a sci fps with power armor like halo

showtimefolks1394d ago

so i am guessing another FPS?

not hating but i hope this studio does something new and fresh. MS sees FPS and sale with $$ signs.

what y'all think next gen will FPS genre will just be as popular? like last gen it was all about RPG's?

RockmanII71394d ago

MS already has a FPS in Halo, unless they want to go with the Battlefield/Medal of Honor yearly schedule that EA has it will be something else. It probably won't be a Racing game because Forza, my bet would be a TPS. After Mass Effect 1 was released on PS3, I'm not convinced that MS will be able to keep Gears of War an Xbox exclusive forever. If/when Epic jumps ship and goes multiplatform, this can take its place as the systems iconic TPS.

Or sci-fi TPS with macho dudes like Gears of war??
It's gonna involve GUNS! that's fo shizzle!

showtimefolks1394d ago

I asked a question and 5 disagres very nice n4g place or stealth trolls and stealth disagrees

I think you maybe right it could be a TPS. Epic and ms had a 3 games deal so you are right future gears games could be on other systems too.

As of now fall of 2013 is super quite no games announced so I am guessing both Sony and ms will reveal their new systems along with a strong lineup of games

You didn't just ask a question though, did you? You made a sweeping statement about a company which people probably disagreed with. Or maybe they disagreed with you claim of last gen being all about RPGs, because honestly I think I've played a lot more RPGs this gen than last.

There not stealth trolls, they just think your wrong.

I don't believe it will be a shooter, with the Gears and halo series they pretty much have the shooters down pat. But still you never know....But odds are higher it will be a different genre, which it should be.

In a perfect World it will be something along the lines of a platformer, with charm, creativity, style, and a toon based caricature driven look.

Perhaps a Uncharted act/adv clone?

If it were me I would go for a Zelda action/RPG, and have another internal studio create a Mario type platformer, and give the next XBOX a wider selection, which in turn would create new users and fan base, as they already have two shooters in Gears and Halo...Plus the other multi-plats shooters...

They can really expand there choice selection, and be more diverse, give a lot of fresh new styles and variety. It would be great to see this, and I cannot imagine that they would lose out by giving more variety. The next system needs the LBP's of the World to go along with the Halo's and Gears...

I would also love to see them bring back a proper Rare game ( not holding my breath) along the lines of the next Banjo, and Oddworld inhabitants next game in the Oddworld universe...One can dream...

Now that would be something for me, Gears, Halo,Banjo/Mario platformer, Oddworld's next game, and a Microsoft studio backed Zelda RPG inspired game....

Oddworld was ruined by MS. Terrible evil cooperation like the ones in the Oddworld games, pillaged it until it died. Thank God, Lorne is bringing Oddworld back with the remakes, the HD remasters, and new games. What's even funny is after MS refused to let Oddworld game rerelease on their system, Oddworld Inhabitants still tries to support the Xbox gamers.

Can't wait for both Xbox titles to hit Vita, plus Abe's Oddysee new and Tasty nest fall!

let me guess what they are creating now
......First Person Shooter on the Space ....JK

SleazyChimp1394d ago

I would say it's something to compete with the Uncharted franchise. I doubt they want to create competition for it's flag ship Halo. Gears I think has really ran it's course, so it could be a replacement for it. My money is on something Uncharted like, its the main area Sony has not been challenged.

Knight_Crawler1393d ago

i know you said you were joking but what I do understand is why is this a bad thing?

The best selling games this gen have been shooters, would people rather MS make some thing new like they did with Banjo Nuts and Bolts and flop.

The number speak for them selfs and people still want FPS so it only makes sense to make games that people want - if Polo shirts are in style you do not stop making them and start making turtke necks : )

aviator1891394d ago

Hopefully, it's for next-gen.
Should be interesting if they're really really aiming for the next Halo.

Qrphe1394d ago

It's more or less guaranteed it's a new-gen title. Given Microsoft's clear R&D spending from a year ago and the lack of exclusives the 360 is getting, we can pretty say this game won't be on 360.

r211394d ago

Its either a shooter or a racing game. Highly unlikely its gonna be a platformer.
