Microsoft: expect more Xbox One exclusives at GamesCom, plus a "surprise" Xbox 360 game at E3

Microsoft's Phil Spencer is talking about Xbox One and Xbox 360 exclusives again. The man's incorrigible, isn't he? According to Spencer, Microsoft has an Xbox 360 game to announce at E3 that "no one has guessed", and the company will reveal additional Xbox exclusives after the show. (E3, Xbox One)

A "surprise" sounds scary, could MS finally reveal Master Chef: Master Chief Edition? I joke (badly probably)

What if Sony said what this guy said? Then suddenly you and your PlayStation super friends start praising and throwing Kaz Hirai Gifs everywhere and you don't even know what the announcement is.

But your gonna assume its nothing because its not from your favorite company in the world.

All I'm saying is wait, If its nothing than feel free to shoot off at the mouth. But if its something, then we can at least congratulate them on whatever it is they did what the 360?
S2Killinit  +   974d ago
you mean him and his gamer friends? Yes we are more excited for Sony, is that a problem? In light of recent events forgive me if I don't care what microsoft is touting around. They can't buy me back with games.

PS: Also, let me tell you why some others may not be excited. Sometimes you need a translator to understand MS PR. What he means to say is: I know you might have been expecting 15 exclusives at E3 (but as Adam Sassler mentioned, they are over a period of 1 1/2 years) So don't be dissapointed if we don't show all 15, just wait for Gamescom when the rest will be ready for show. As for now, enjoy the number "15". end translation.

AngelicIceDiamond, there is this thing called "track record" and when a company continuously makes poor decisions, it can lower expectations.

Sandmano, this is not directed towards you... this is a general statement lol

Everyone needs to calm down for a minute. I'm not sold on any console yet. To be completely honest, Sony has hardly provided any information on the features available to their console. They could have fees for used games, they could have restrictions on internet access, they could block the play of used games totally. There are still so many question marks on both consoles that it's unfair to judge one and not the other. Wait until everything has been release on both consoles, wait until you see the games that are available, and then make your decision and stop whining like a bunch of cry babies. It's not the end of the world if these consoles don't have what YOU want in them so get over it and grow up.
bcrazy18  +   974d ago
RedHawkX... They've already said there will be no tv and strictly games... You don't work at Microsoft do you? So, you don't know what they have planned. Sony could have just as "crappy" of a conference but you don't know that because you don't work for them and you don't know what they have planned.
DOMination-  +   974d ago
They don't say the 360 game is an exclusive. I'm guessing its something like FFv13.

Off topic: On gaf they are saying you need to pay 30 a year for online gaming on ps4. 60 for ps+ discounts and 100 for gaikai.

Dmagic, seriously, MS has told you to your face what they are doing. Its what Sony has not said that would scare me. MS knows the infrastructure is there to do what they want, and when something like this happens, it does speed up getting areas covered by broadband.

I expect Surprise to be Halo 2 Anniversary edition.

I expect the E3 exclusive that noone has guessed = Homefront 2!!

Crytek is making Ryse for them anyway. Talk of EA partners might not last much longer. Crytek isn't a publisher. They have never announced finding a publisher for Homefront 2. Although most would just expect EA to publish it.
UNGR  +   974d ago
Who would want to publish the turd that is Homefront? That game flopped hard for a reason. It was a bad FPS, hyped to hell and back to be the "Call of Duty killer". Absolute worst FPS game of that year. (minus Brink, I think they came out in the same year)

Having a game no one has guessed yet isn't necessarily a good thing. It will be surprising if it's a game people will actually want. And even more surprising will be if Microsoft can win people over at E3 and get them to purchase a Xbox Juan once it's released.

They never said they would announce all 15 games at E3. What, they're not allowed to keep some surprises as the year passes by? If they revealed all 15 games anyway, they would all compete for the same attention anyway.
OrangePowerz  +   974d ago
No, but they didn`t even do their E3 conference yet so there is no point in talking about showing more exclusives at the GamesCon. They can say that at the end of the presentation that people should look forward to gamesCon for more announcements and not start to talk about it before E3.
S2Killinit  +   974d ago
only reason they are mentioning GamesCom is because when they announced the 15 exclusives, they implied that they were going to be at E3. they know what they are doing. Otherwise, why even mention exclusives at Gamescom? I think we already assumed there would be exclusives at Gamescom. right?

patsrule316  +   975d ago
Since I have 2 360s, I am hoping for something really cool at E3 now. But I have to say, when you tell someone there will be a big surprise at a certain time, it invites wild speculation, some of which is always bigger than the surprise that is delivered. That leads to disappointment, that might not have been there if people hadn't been expecting a surprise. Think the ending to the show Lost, people had built up the ending into mythic proportions, expecting a big surprise, then the vast majority felt let down. On the other hand, look at Game of Thrones this expectations, but a huge surprise. If people were warned to expect a huge surprise, it would have destroyed the impact.

I seriously believe MS are under estimating their fan base by expecting them to 'hang on a string' with this wait and see approach.

XBox One Reveal "Wait 'til E3"
XBox One E3 "Wait 'til Gamescom"
XBox One Gamescom "? ?"

Most of the dreaded rumours have been officially announced as true, nobody wants this policy, and yet MS still persist with this strategy.

I've been a gamer well over 25 years, I can honestly say I have never seen anything so contrived and convoluted....

As a gamer I absolutely feel sad for the Xbox faithful, those who helped MS build the foundation with XBL etc.

Sony really better 'Do the right thing by gamers'.

What are you talking about. They have 15 exclusives to show, maybe they are saving some for gamescon. Either way, they better deliver some new and exciting IPs. Same goes for Sony, I don't want another infamous or killzone. I need that like I need another Gears and Halo.
fourOeightshark  +   975d ago
Really bro? you say you don't want another inFamous like there's been 4 already.
OrangePowerz  +   974d ago
Whats wrong with another inFamous? Both games are very good so why not continue making them as long as they are good.

I`m sure the Sony 1st and 2nd Party studios are working on plenty of new IP`s.
JeffGUNZ  +   974d ago
Yeah, I don't want a new generation console launch featuring two last gen series. I want to see some new IP's. Infamous was a good game, don't get me wrong, but it's not a blockbuster title which moved consoles. Killzone is good, but I would love to see Sony come out with a Last of Us type game for next gen. Sure, maybe they have that up their sleeves and will show something great this E3, but too be content with infamous, which is the third in the series and another killzone just doesn't really make me super pumped.
S2Killinit  +   974d ago
Adam Sassler already informed us that the 15 exclusives are for a period of 1 1/2 years. From launch until not this christmas but the next christmas. This announce is just so people wouldn't be disappointed when there is less than 15 exclusives at E3, since that was the implication of what they said, otherwise we already know there has to be exclusives at GamesCom.

Take Biggest's lesson in life and run with it.

You're touting Microsoft's 15 exclusives within the first year, but thinking that Killone, inFamous, DriveClub and Knack are the only exclusives that PS4 will have in its first year on market too. Expect a new Final Fantasy... and that dude, is just the start.

The reliability of what Microsoft says about their 15 exclusives is about as reliable as this:

The 24hr drm check is bullshit. Too many variables. It should be random every few weeks at worst. For MS to disable my ability to play online/offline purchased games. Just don't try an charge 400-500 dollars for something I clearly LEASE. If you want consumers on board Xbox One had better be cheap!!! Based on this DRM/PC format crap XB1 should retail@ $250-300 tops!!! No way I pay 400-500 for a Bluray/cable box!!!! and invest hundereds in games/XBL/cloud and shut off my gaming section for no drm scan. Underscan THIS MS!!! I have DirectTV!! I have Netflix via PC/TV, ect!!!! I have Music and dozens of social aps skype, twitch,ect via laptop. I don't need/care Kinect!!! I don't need 24 hr drm hastle!!!

By my thought process, the surprise must be a franchise that has never been on the Xbox 360 before. A new IP could not be guessed, and wouldn't be a surprise. Every franchise from the 360 has already been guessed, and again wouldn't be a surprise. A true surprise would be a Zelda or Mario game, although that won't happen. If I had to guess a single game, I'd guess I would speculate Star Craft. We already know Diablo is coming, but if they could have somehow translated star craft to 360 controls, that would be a huge surprise that no guessed, but seems within the realm of possibility.
