Microsoft cancels Gore Verbinski's 'Matter' for Kinect

Matter, a Kinect game expected to launch on Xbox Live Arcade in 2013, has been cancelled by Microsoft.

The story is too old to be commented.

Owch...

Well done Microsoft, now you can use that money to fund a Kinect like movie service or maybe a Kinect entertainment app /s

what why?!?!?!?

this was on my top games of 2013 list?!?

Root1299d ago

I know...they make an appealing game and then they cancel it. What is the actual point of that...

I wouldn't mind if they had a ton of games incoming but they don't

What happened? This marble rolling game was one of Xbox 360's big E3:2012 titles supposedly on par with The Last Of Us, God of War: Ascension, and Beyond: Two Souls. /s

Did you actually see in-game footage?
Because I never did, do you have a link?
Would love to see what it actually looked like.

I missed the word "sounding" out

No more Matter, No matter(Lol.) MS still has F2P Ascend New Gods, Loco Cycle and State Of Decay still waiting for release.

MS does have bigger projects at the moment.

An Xbox gamer lost faith in MS? Now that's interesting.

He is not an xbox gamer, he is ThatKansasGuy, or better known as Strongman alter ego. He switched his name a few day ago because he got busted.

whoyouwit041299d ago

They can cancel all kinect titles for all I care, Hopefully they will and focus more on core titles.

The_Infected1299d ago

Exactly...that's why I left Xbox if they'd never got obsessed with Kinect, went crazy with entertainment and had more exclusives I'd loved to stay with Xbox.

whoyouwit041299d ago

well I'm still staying with Xbox until I see what they have to offer next gen, I still think xbox 360 is the better system. But If they don't release new ips and more core titles I might jump ship, But regardless I will own all next gen system including steam box and ouya. I will never allowe myself to be come a companies corporate sheep, I will never get on this site and dog one console in favor of another, now their fan boys that's a whole other story. And by the way I'm not saying you are a corporate sheep or fan boy I'm just speaking in general.

4lc4pon31298d ago

exactly. Kinct is lame and childish anyways. I wish they would focus on the core gamer and get more first party devs and some new IPS. M$ barely has any games to speak of Halo, Gears, Fable, Alan Wake that's really it.

Xbox has become boring.

whoyouwit041298d ago

You are wrong Microsoft has plenty of games Conker, PGR, Kameo, Killer Instinc, Crimson skies, etc, etc, I go on and on with there back catalog, They just don't push them out, But hopefully all that will change next gen. And seriousl why is it every one keeps holloring the need more first party devs when they have over 20 studios you people should really need to do some research.

United States

343 Industries – Halo series - (2 team studio - Concurrent development of Halo 4 and co-development of Halo Anniversary)

Connected Experiences – Untitled Project – Design Large scale multiplayer title and help other first party studios

Good Science Studio – Kinect Adventures, Kinect Fun Labs

Kids and Lifestyle Entertainment – Next generation fitness project

Microsoft Studios – Los Angeles – Next generation core cinematic title

Microsoft Studios – Mobile Gaming – ilomilo

Microsoft Studios – Redmond Publishing – Overseeing and co-developing multiple projects in conjunction with third party development studios

Platform Next Studios – Next generation core title

Playful Learning – Next generation family project

Skybox Sports – Next generation sports project

Turn 10 Studios – Forza Motorsport series - (2 team studio - Concurrent development of Forza Motorsports 4 and co-development of Forza Horizon)

Twisted Pixel Games – The Gunstringer, LocoCycle - (2 team studio - Concurrent development of Ms. 'Splosion Man and The Gunstringer)

Xbox Live Productions – South Park Let's Go Tower Defense Play!, South Park: Tenorman's Revenge, Avatar Kinect

Europe

Lionhead Studios – Fable series, Black & White series, Unannounced MMO-like New IP - (2 team studio - Concurrent development of Fable: The Journey, Fable Heroes and an unannounced next generation title)

Lift London – Multiple Cloud Based gaming projects

Rare Ltd. – Banjo-Kazooie series, Viva Piñata, Perfect Dark series, Kinect Sports series- (3 team studio - Concurrent development of various titles)

Soho Productions – Kinect Sesame Street TV

Press Play – Untitled Project[25]

Canada

BigPark – Joy Ride series, Kinect Sports: Season Two

Black Tusk Studios – Untitled Project - (an unannounced next generation title)

Microsoft Studios Victoria – Untitled Project

As you can see they have studios out the ass and some of the studios are multiple teams studios. So Why do they need more devs? Like I said you need to do your research and wait and see what these studios have to offer before Judging.

"You are wrong Microsoft has plenty of games Conker, PGR, Kameo, Killer Instinc, Crimson skies, etc, etc"

When was the last time a new game in any of those franchises was released or even announced?

Theres a big difference between owing IPs and using them.

alousow1299d ago

they never learn. "More kinect" lol
