Microsoft 2013 Predictions: Xbox 720, Killer Instinct, Alan Wake 2, New Controller, Call of Duty

The Xbox 360 made a statement this generation. The original Xbox only surpassed 24 million units worldwide, and Microsoft found themselves selling a few million consoles more than Nintendo, but obviously came nowhere close to the Playstation 2. With the Xbox 360, Microsoft made a statement, and proved that they are here to stay in the gaming universe. 2013 is going to be a big year for Microsoft. With the rumors of a new console, new Kinect, and new games from Microsoft 1st parties, 2013 could prove to be the most important year for Microsoft since the launch of the Xbox 360.

i would love if the made a follow up game to jade empire, or rebooted the suffering.

Would love a Jade Empire 2, but I believe bioware are the ones who would decide that. I think it would be a good launch for the next xbox, but sadly its not gonna happen.

Would be nice to get another Kameo game or a true Banjo game!

"Would be nice to get another Kameo game or a true Banjo game!"

forget it..

You think MS paid 300 Million + for Rare to make the games you like? Lol don't be silly.

I hope alan wake 2 comes to pc since it was profitable in 48 hours.

or wait 2 years? ugh hope not.. All I will have is ps4 and pc.

Call of duty? ugh...

Jade Empire 2? It was a great game but cmon everyone has been begging Bioware for making Knights of the Old Republic 3!!! Mass Effect and Dragon Age does not even compare to those 2 games, and The Old Republic MMO has been a disaster.

Also do not see the need of Microsoft and Sony changing their controllers, they are really good the way they are. Adding a touch screen would just make them more bulky and gimmicy

"The Old Republic MMO has been a disaster"

that isnt a disaster, it was pretty good actually, the problem was EA rush them to release it and they werent ready, but if you play the game you can see the quality in it, is basically a sequel to KOTOR so i think is gonna be hard for them to do a KOTOR 3 now, if you didnt play it when it was paid to play, play it now that is free to play and do the story it was pretty good and some of the dungeons were epic for KOTOR lovers a nice example is the foundry, the game has a nice story you should give it a try.

Yes they are ,but remember that their still stuck with their flaws. And all $ony and M$ can do is make them even better or more confortable.Although adding a touch screen seems like a waste of money for the companies

sikbeta2007d ago

Godawful mockup of the X360 controller, no way MS will put an screen in the controller just because Wii-U has it, they created smartglass for a reason

miDnIghtEr20C_SfF2007d ago

There will be a screen in the middle. My MS insider has told me months ago. THERE WILL BE A SCREEN IN THE MIDDLE. REMEMBER THIS POST!

There will also be analog sticks, and trigger buttons that rumble.

Also, Perfect Dark will be a release game for Durango by Rare...

Would love a new Killer Instinct and Banjoe game. I think we will get both next year or early 2014.

MikeMyers2007d ago (Edited 2007d ago )

I can see a Kinect Killer Instinct coming. Hopefully if the rumors are true Kinect 2.0 will be much more accurate and not suffer from lag. I could see that being fun with Kinect but not in it's current form.

The article points out a lack of new intellectual property on the Xbox 360 and I agree that that has to change. The Xbox 360 did start out well with unique titles like Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Kameo, Viva Pinata, Condemned, Crackdown and others but the last few years that has basically grinded to a halt unless you count Kinect games and XBLA games. I don't want to see the same thing happen again where they come out strong and then coast.

I can see some tweaks to the controller but not much. They may add some sensors in it. I'd just like to see some free way of playing online, a hard drive built into every system, better media storage like bluray, ram at least 2GB but preferably 4.

All in all next year should be an exciting time with all the rumors coming. A new Playstation, a new Xbox (wasn't the original called Xbox so why would they name the next one that too?), and a new system from Valve.


Predictions? why would anyone "predict" a new killer instinct on the horizon? neither rare or microsoft has shown any real interest in doing anything with the series
(mostly because their company heads have no souls and have insides made of garbage).
id call this more of a wish list.

Knight_Crawler2007d ago

You must be fun at parties -_-

Buzz killer.

ScubaSteve12007d ago

Microsoft is not doing killer instinct
so idk maybe

Belking2007d ago

Wrong... We will at least get an arcade version on xbox live which is good enough for me.

ScubbaSteve2007d ago

Scuba Squad go!

I have to agree with myself on this one.

I think some people just aren't familiar with what happens after Microsoft buys a company. As a fan of old Fasa games, I won't spoil the ending for you.

DOMination-2006d ago

Why do you have two accounts and replying to yourself?

ScubbaSteve2003d ago

That's not my account it just has the same name.

DivineAssault 2007d ago

if killer instinct makes a comeback nx gen, I WILL BUY MS new system.. I loved that game along with MK as a kid.. Bring it back! & that lil screen is cool too for huds n maps.. no need for the other gimmick features

Daver2006d ago

Same, Killer Instict would probably make me buy an xbox
