Is This The Dream Lineup For The Xbox 720?

"A couple of days back, we had published a similar article on the PlayStation 4. So it only made sense to do one on the Xbox 720. In our continuing quest to shed light on the future of gaming, we now turn our sights to the Xbox 720. " (Next-Gen, Xbox 360)

Alan Wake 2 might be the game that finally push me to get a microsoft console.

Kinect Sports 3? *pukes*
Loki86  +   1122d ago
Hate people like you, focus on only the negative. Of course there will be kinect titles on the next-gen system. Did you not see the rest of the list, I am guessing not since you are most likely on here to bash MS anyways.

Kinect sports is ACTUALLY kinda fun though..

"Kinect sports is ACTUALLY kinda fun though.."

Fun? *pukes*
IAMERROR  +   1122d ago
yes, you guys caught me. I'm here to bash ms even though I've defended them countless times on this site...

Sure fun, but third one? that's hardly a dream lineup, give me some Conker
Gildarts  +   1122d ago
I do not think there will be a Kinect sports 3 for quite some time, i think rare is done with Kinect sports, they are ready for core games now with Kinect support probably. I can see perfect dark work fine in combination with Kinect.
Kevin ButIer  +   1122d ago

Actually the PS4 has no games. It doesn't even have a power cord...
Murad  +   1122d ago
I can't say they have a lot, but I found their quality to be better. For example, MGS 4 ran amazing, and so did White Knight, along with Folklore, and a bunch of different titles. I think of it like this, as long as pirates don't attack, the exclusives will be better, well I hope so anyway.
indubitably  +   1122d ago
Having tons of exclusives is really cool and all but there is no way I would buy all of them. I feel like people who obsess over them never get a multiplat because of all the money they have to dish out to get their half rate exclusives.
BertlSenix  +   1122d ago
Get it for PC
No need for a Xbox...Support Remedy and their favorite platform.They did fight like they want to leave hell that they can bring Alan Wake 1 for PC after the 360 version FLOPPED so hard.
BanBrother  +   1122d ago
Bert, I'm pretty sure it sold more on xbox than it did PC. Although, you peg-legged PC pirates probably held it back from any decent sales to begin with. Tssssssss

I so hope that English is not your first language!!
Murad  +   1122d ago
Dude, it's not worth it. I mean don't get me wrong, Alan Wake was spectacular in every way. The story, the atmosphere, the use of the flashlight, and the gun, hell it was even scarier than what the Resident Evil franchise has become. However, the thing is that, I'm pretty sure Steam is going to have it, and honestly, most games that are released on Xbox are released on Steam, besides Kinect and Gears apparently, besides Gears 1.
Stuart5756  +   1122d ago
Alan Wake was great, but a launch lineup would need much more than this to sell me a new console, can't wait for announcements.
RuleofOne343  +   1123d ago
Am all in love the line-up.
Belking  +   1123d ago
Yea, pretty good lineup there but I think MS will actually have Alan wake 2 for it. I also think there will be other console exclusives like Just Cause 3 too. Rara is sure to have something for it. Their have been rumors of them working on next gen since 2011.
JoGam  +   1122d ago
Just Cause is a multiplatform game my friend. MS may pay for some exclusive DLC but the game would be on every console. Not sure about Wii U

RuleofOne343  +   1123d ago
As a consumer I think MS has heard the cries ,whining & concern from fans about lack of exclusives. They just seem to be handling it in a form where it does not cost tons of cash for both the developer & themselves but where it is still profitable for both parties while satisfying the consumer it just happen to be a slow process. Here hoping for a ton of awesome 1st ,2ND party IP & some great 3rd party new IP ,sequels, prequels.

ScubbaSteve  +   1123d ago
Not sure how you came to that conclusion, they aren't really pumping out many exclusives. Their strategy this generation has been to offer the same games you can find on other platforms with timed DLC.
AngelicIceDiamond  +   1122d ago
That wasn't their strategy for the entire generation. The first 5 years MS was super aggressive about exclusives.

Just watch E3 2010 they didn't announce a single new game besides Ryse and the rest was casual stuff.

Isn't it suspicious that MS stop producing a big quanity of hardcore exclusives after the 2010's big line up? And then all of sudden rumors coming out saying MS has been working on next gen titles for the past couple of years?

Or the fact that MS had that timed exclusive DLC to COD for 3 years? 2009 to 2012 with super heavy rumors of MS new console getting released this fall?

Its all sketchy.
ScubbaSteve  +   1122d ago
I'm not sure how that's sketchy at all, they started this generation by buying 3rd party support to eat away at the PS marketshare. They then offered timed exclusives on games to which consumers got wise about. You didn't need to spend 200-300 dollars on a new console you just had to wait a bit.

This resulted in the HD platforms being split in user base so every intelligent, 3rd party developer that wanted to make HD games made multi-platorm games for the rest of the generation unless they were paid enough money to make up the difference. Microsoft no longer had to buy exclusives because they were already in the door competing and the 3rd parties had to make multi-platform games anyways or they'd be losing out on roughly half their sales.

I'm just saying they didn't need exclusives at the end of the generation because every 3rd party developer was already resolved to make multi-platform games.
Gildarts  +   1122d ago
They are in the process of making tons of exclusives you only need to look at how many studios they opened the last 2 years they now have more first party studios then Sony.
ScubbaSteve  +   1122d ago
That really doesn't convince me of anything, I've been a gamer for many years and I've seen many of my favorite studios get bought out by MS only to never see the games they use to produce ever again. Hearing that they opened some studios with unproven track records doesn't really guarantee anything good will come out of them.
KwietStorm  +   1122d ago
They have to have the studios first to have 1st party exclusives. That's the problem. They have the handful of regulars like Halo and Forsake, and Gears if you include close relationship devs. They got away with times exclusives a lot earlier on this generation, but that well dried up industry wide. 3rd party developers need to make money too. This is why it concerns me what Microsoft will do moving forward. The multimedia box strategy doesn't do anything for me.
whoyouwit04  +   1122d ago
Dude do you do any research at all? cause if you did you would know that Microsoft has a shit load of studios that we haven't even see the first game from, Sony is the one that needs more studios they are closing doors left and right. Microsoft has the back catalog and studios to put Sony to shame but they just want use them properly. here's a list of Microsoft studios and what they are working on

Witcher 3 will be better on PC and Gran Turismo or Project Cars are far superior to the unrealistic and lame Forza Series.
Get a PC and PS4.Only good choice if you want the best games in the best quality and a lot of variety.

HalfNerdHalfAmazing  +   1123d ago
A new exclusive game be nice
Tctczach  +   1123d ago
I expect a lot of new IPs based on the fact that developers were talking about how late it was to introduce a new IP in the console cycle. So I hope there will be some new stuff. At least there is one new IP confirmed by Blacktusk.
Minato-Namikaze  +   1122d ago
Such BS from devs, ni no kuni, last of us, puppeteer, beyond, are all new ips and all are coming in 2013

Lame lineup.
Also, TS4 a MS exclusive? Keep dreaming. We shud be happy if we ever get one and you say it's gonna be exlusive. Just lol.
Sony's lineup is ten times better.
Only On PlayStation.
Jek_Porkins  +   1122d ago
Are you privy to what the PS4 is launching with? If you look back, Sony has never had what I'd consider a stellar launch lineup. You could say it's a bit of a mistake to keep so many developers working with current hardware when you are about to launch new hardware.

People will want games right away.
StrongMan  +   1122d ago
Is that the excuse your camp is using for the lack of core games on Xbox? Whatever helps you sleep at night, Chunkylover.

Everyone except you knows the launch line up for the new Xbox this year will be Halo 2 Anniversary, Forza 5, and a bunch of crappy Kinect titles. That's all your going to get is the usual Halo/Fable one year and Gears/Forza the next and rinse and repeat. The rest will be all Kinect. Nobody even buys Fable and Forza anymore. The core knows this and will be turned off like they are right now. There is a reason MS is dead last this gen.
I_am_Batman  +   1122d ago
To be fair Sony had a really great lauch lineup with the PSVita even though there were not many interessting games released after that.
WetN00dle69  +   1122d ago

Is that what your Crystal ball told you?? Or did Miss Cleo read the new Xbox future for you??
FunkMacNasty  +   1122d ago
I'm not sure who is the bigger losing troll, Shuyin or Strongman.

Seriously guys? Are you're playstations not working at the moment? I mean, Since you guys have all these great exclusives in your gaming collections, one would think you would be too busy playing them to have the time to troll Xbox articles all day..

Seriousy, 90% of the Sony fans on this site are a bunch of effing LOSERS.
WetN00dle69  +   1122d ago
EXACTLY!!! Guess they got bored playing their one hit wonders. Cause hey lets be realistic here those so called awesome exclusives thats all they are one hit wonders. Does the job quite well for the first few hours then everything goes down hill after the 5th hour or so. Then they shelf the game and come here to N4g and sing praises about how awesome the PS3 games are and how shitty the rest of the consoles games are. if they are so great then just WTF are you doing here?? Shouldnt you be in front of your TV playing those so called amazing games instead of being here spewing crap all over the place??
ALLWRONG  +   1122d ago
The funniest thing to me is how they say the "360 needs exclusives" when in the really real world of reality the 360 has more than the PS3.
Shuyin  +   1122d ago
Actually, I love to troll.
Nah, just kidding. I'm no PS fanboy. Belive me. I just tend to get carried away when expressing myself. Sorry lol.
Anyway I hope the next Xbox has a great launch with great titles. I really want the MS crowd to enjoy their console.
Again, I apologize >_>
soxfan2005  +   1122d ago
Sony supporters are in full damage control mode. Every time a positive Xbox article comes out, here they are trying to convince us how superior Playstation is. They're so afraid of the upcoming Xbox console that they have to troll relentlessly to spread their BS.
kenshiro100  +   1122d ago
And 360 fans do the exact same thing.

Anyway, I wish all the best for MS. Still waiting on a new Killer Instinct.
Jek_Porkins  +   1122d ago
Blacktust is going to be the next Bungie for Microsoft, I fully expect there new core title to be next generations Gears Of War. Microsoft will be giving its fans new Halo, Gears and Blacktusk's games and I for one cannot wait.
RogueStatus28  +   1122d ago
1) Alan Wake 2
2) Fable IV (this time around make it more like LC or II)
3) Black Tusk new IP

TheGamerDood  +   1122d ago
Why am I getting the impression that next-gen, MS won't be as committed to putting out as many title exclusives as they did had with this gen. And if that is true does anyone think it'll have a negative impact on adoption rate and will 3rd party titles be enough to carry the platform.
