“Marlow Briggs” trademarked by Microsoft, Could be an Xbox 720 IP

It’s filed under ‘game software’, so it could indicate that it is a next gen IP from them. (Microsoft, Next-Gen, Xbox 360)

Yer what happened to Ryse. That thing has like fallen of the face of the planet.

edit: "Marlow Briggs" sounds like a terrible name for a game. I hope they don't go with that

I think it started out as a "regular" game, which then they converted into a Kinect game. Then realized that Kinect is pretty crap, so they delayed it to take advantage of Kinect 2.0 hardware and make it a Nextbox launch title.

Marlow Briggs is probably the characters name.

Maybe it's mailo from project natal.

@munky

It was going to be a hybrid (controllers+Kinect)
I hope they save it for nextgen though.

Ide love that but pgr and forza the same time plus I think pgr is dead and forza horizon is the new pgr.

Nah, doubtful. 2 racing games? Ryse more than likely, if not cancelled, has been in development hell. KI3, by Rare, on the 720? Psh. I'd buy 2 copies of the game just to support the fact that fairy tales are real. Alan Wake 2 though, that should be splendid.

And agreed with Superman below, god, what a horrible name if true!

*crosses fingers*

Ryse was just put back for next gen. Officially co friend last year by Crytek.
whoyouwit04  +   576d ago
Add conker, kameo, PD, and a real banjoo game to that list as well. plus some new ips.

PGR is dead in the water and it would be suicide to launch with Forza. Killer Instinct I doubt will ever happen and Ryse is current gen isnt it? Alan Wake would be a long shot as it sold quite bad (even though it was a decent game) on a console that had sold over 50 million at the time. You think they could release a sequel to a console that will sell a few million at launch and do better? That would really hurt Remedy..

I think we may see a Forza, A halo spinoff until Halo 5 is released next year (which will be teased) and the rest will focus on the new tech (If MS brings one with new Xbox) or Kinect. They will really push this new tech though and make it look amazing. Either it be illumiroom or Kinect 2. They won't tell you its extra on top of console for this tech though.

I just feel MS has lost touch with hardcore console owners.. Oh we may however here of more COD exclusive content coming to xbox 720 as the deal with Activisions up.

probably a kinect game
greenpowerz  +   576d ago
Why, are you a Kinect fan or not? Are you a PS3 fanboy troll perhaps?
iamnsuperman  +   576d ago
abzdine does have a point. It does come across as a family oriented game by its title which is why I think they should change it if it isn't that type of game.
abzdine  +   576d ago
@iamnsuperman: thank you!
i didnt know i had to develop my idea more the title speaks for itself.

"We can’t really say if it’s the name of a new game or something else,"

The title comes across as a family, Kinect game?? Wow, you guys sure read into what isn't there. I mean seriously how does a title, a name of a person come across as a Kinect game?
iamnsuperman  +   576d ago
@maniacmayhem

Well a name tells you a lot about a game. If this game was called Hard Man Gun Face I would expect a stupid, out dated humour game like Duke Nukem. If the game was called Polly I would expect a very feminine oriented game. A name tells a lot. This doesn't have the same ring as lets say Alan Wake and feels more family orientated.

@Superman

Just stop, please.

You are seriously reaching and grabbing on things that are not even there. There is no way that Marlow Briggs sounds family related or Kinect related. It doesn't provide any clue what so ever as to what the game (if it is even one) can be.

In fact there was just an article speculating that Briggs could be a character from Gears since there was a character with the same last name. Also there is a punk rock band in southern cali called The Briggs, far from family orientated.

We will just have to actually wait and see exactly what this is. But c'mon, lets not speculate and label something just off of a name. It's absurd and well....dumb.

Sounds like a terrible title
Gildarts  +   575d ago
Its a character name.. Not the game title. I thought that was pretty obvious.
aviator189  +   576d ago
I want kameo 2
tehpees3  +   576d ago
It sounds more like their answer to Kevin Butler. Thats what I am guessing.
jacksheen0000  +   576d ago
Marlow Briggs.

I don't think the trademarked name has anything to do with a new Ip.

Could this be the interactive virtual kid that works along with the kinect?

Marlow Briggs is what they're calling the next Xbox. They've decided to give it a Human name because the Octo core processor has gained human Consciousness.
EffectO  +   576d ago
Sounds like a detective name.
LOL_WUT  +   576d ago
Maybe a Mortal Kombat game? Jax Briggs brother?
whoyouwit04  +   576d ago
I'm guessing if this is a game the main character is black because Marlow Briggs sounds like a black name to me.
Gildarts  +   575d ago
It does sound like a black name.
Good_Guy_Jamal  +   576d ago
New IP's is what I'm excited about most next gen. Also how they expand gameplay and story interaction with new hardware.
Tired of the same old formula, I want to PLAY my games in different ways and not control a cut scene.
GribbleGrunger  +   576d ago
Sounds like the name one would give to a private investigator. Perhaps a sleuth game for Kinect? Could be interesting.

Marlow Briggs vs. Alan Wake

EDIT: What I mean is...I actually don't know.

I think people could be right with the assumptions so far. Marlow Briggs doesn't sound like a very marketable title, so perhaps a lower budget Kinect game? Or maybe a part of a new advertising campaign? Looking forward to hearing what it's about.

Frickin brilliant, MS. For anyone interested in marketing, take notice.. Microsoft continues to get a step up on the competition again and again.
