Microsoft's Phil Spencer said they will reveal more exclusives this year

Yea, we still have exclusives to reveal.

The story is too old to be commented.
zeal0us1631d ago

*Time Exclusives

There I fix it /jk

All jokes put aside hopefully they aren't shooters or racers because MS surely has enough of those already.

Zichu1631d ago

I don't think they will release another racer to compete with Forza, it would defeat the object of releasing Forza.

Same goes for a shooter, they already have Titanfall coming out within the launch window, along with Halo at some point.

Again, we don't know for sure what they are going to show. I am hoping it's not a shooter or a racer. It would be nice to see something different.

CRAIG6671631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

I am pretty certain they will show some kinect stuff as we aint seen an awful lot of what it can actually do game-wise.

Fine for casual folk I guess, just not really for me,but I would like them to surprise me...

There have been rumours afoot of a new conker, if they show that I will be a very happy!

Kanzes1631d ago

They will. It's Project Gotham Racing 5. Maybe it won't be available at launch though

shivvy241631d ago

MS and Sony both got alot left

NewMonday1631d ago

I bet they are the Kinect games they were embarrassed to show at E3.

greenpowerz1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

CrackDown for sure. It was hinted at during a live demo of the XB1 dash(orbs in a tile)

MSFT is going to TGS so expect some games from Japanese developers.

No need to troll XB1's line-up, it is more diverse than Sony's

Anyways Gamecon is where we will see more of the story driven games from international studios like Remedy Entertainment.

Expect something like an exclusive version of a new DreamFall and Lost Odyssey 2(which has been requested by gamers only topped by Killer Instinct)

MSFT is going all out with games with added studios and a billion dollars spent on games. Haters acted this way the first time MSFT announced they would have games when they revealed the Xbox One.

Probably some advanced Kinect 2 games will be announced right before or during the holidays. MSFT now knows better and won't over hype Kinect games because they know Kinects success and technical prowess plus mass appeal with the largest demographic the casuals, attracts too much attention from haters that tend to destroy the reputation of Kinect and its games. Expect the remaining game shows to be similar to E3 when it comes to Kinect games and core games ratio? LOL

You xbox fans have to mark the PS3 fans for trolling you allow them to do this.

abzdine1631d ago

thie is how they're trying to set rat traps to people to make them buy their machine and bring back DRM when enough have done it.

I dont trust what they are saying, and especially Spencer the only thing i feel like everytime i see him talk is punch him on the face.

Let's see what they're up to, but i'm not having high hopes tbh

QuickdrawMcgraw1631d ago

I'm waiting this time before I buy a Xbox1.I was left with a dust collector last Gen.I was convinced by the Xbox fan boys on N4G on all the great exclusives Xbox360 will have.So I bought a 360 when Mass Effect 2 came out.Then Alan Wake came out,Which was great.Then nothing.At least for my taste.So I want to see how many exclusives MS will really release.

bicfitness1631d ago

Do keep in mind that we have hardly seen any of Sony's "20 exclusives within the first year." MS shouldn't be playing the exclusives game. Especially with their history of timed nonsense.

gamertk4211631d ago

So they should just not have any exclusives? Make sense, dude.

Mystogan1631d ago

Microsoft showed 18 exclusives at E3.

The 15 exclusives they were talking about are Xbox One only exclusives.

They already showed 10 Xbox One only Exclusives.

Forza
Halo
Killer Instinct
Blacktusks Game
Kinect Sports Rivals
Sunset Overdrive
Ryse
Dead Rising 3
Crimson Dragon
Quantum Break

Now we don't which ones they count do they actually mean 15 of their own IP? Or just plainly 15 Xbox One exclusives regardless of the IP?

If we count only their own IP's then they showed 6. Leaving 9 exclusives left to reveal. Microsoft will have plenty of exclusives this time around, even more then Sony. They said they have 20 exclusives but Microsoft already showed 17 and there are still more to be revealed. Overall Microsoft will have more exclusives this Gen.

They have 24 studios.
12 who are working on new projects.

2 who have revealed their projects.

Black tusks game and Team dakota(Project spark)

They still have 10 unannounced projects left.
Including lionhead and Rare.

Mainsqueeze1631d ago

Im wondering if Sony is counting alot of those indie games they showed on stage as part of their "20 exclusives in the first year" along with warframe and planetside 2. I hope they are all new AAA games though and not these.

jimbobwahey1631d ago

Even if they're just timed exclusives, they're probably not even exclusive for that initial period either and will likely appear on PC regardless.

Was quite pleased to see I won't need an Xbox One to play the two best "exclusives" from their E3 show, TitanFall and Project Spark :)

AngelicIceDiamond1631d ago

@Jim Just like how Black light Retribution, Warhammer, Planetside 2, War Thunder and DCUO I can also play on PC.

To counter your argument "I won't need a PS4 to play those games" either.

fermcr1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

With all the crap Microsoft has been taking and with a more expensive console, they need real exclusives if they want gamers interested in their console, and not timed exclusives...

BTW, they need to improve their gold premium online, offering much more then they are offering now if they want to compete.

Kanzes1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

Actually, there's a various genres that Microsoft offer now

Shooter: Titanfall, Halo, Garden Warfare, Sunset Overdrive (?)
Action: Dead Rising 3, Minecraft, Ryse, Quantum Break (?)
Racing: PGR5, Forza5
RPG: Fable IV (noted that Microsoft Osaka will show something too, maybe there's something JRPG like Lost Odyssey)
Simulation: Project Spark
Probably QTE game: D4

I know some of that aren't actually exclusive.. but I'm just saying this in response of this post

Septic1631d ago

Remember how people mocked Microsoft pre E3 about how all the games would be Kinect fare? Well the show shut them up in that regard. The games library is very impressive. And more exclusives will be more than welcome.

NewMonday1631d ago

you can file Ryse under "QTE game"

Septic1631d ago

@newmonday

Oh yeah? Seemed less of a QTE game than Heavy Rain. Are we gonnatroll the latter game too?

Manic20141631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

Black tusk studio's also releasing another exclusive for Xbox one probably a Action. Also im thinking they maybe a left for dead 3

MikeMyers1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

@Septic,
"Remember how people mocked Microsoft pre E3 about how all the games would be Kinect fare? Well the show shut them up in that regard. The games library is very impressive. And more exclusives will be more than welcome."

Of course but you have to remember where you are. You're on a forum dominated by Playstation fans. You look at the system forums and it's insane how unbalanced the discussions are in favor of the PS3 in comparison to all other platforms combined. With that of course will come lots of negativity towards the Xbox brand and has been like that for years, long before the Xbox One was announced.

Can Microsoft do better? Of course, but no matter what they do you will see a unified group here who will rarely if ever say anything positive about the Xbox brand. That has more to do with them being a competitive threat and the current generation they have become more of a threat than many had first envisioned after the lackluster success of the original Xbox.

We've seen at the E3 reveal that it was indeed about games after all the mocking of their pre-Xbox One reveal and how there wasn't much games. We've seen with the Xbox 360 that Microsoft can be very competitive (outside of Japan), with over 75 million units and still selling for $200 after 7 years. We still see games for the Xbox 360 being released. Sure not too many from Microsoft themselves but still lots of games. But you see, there are some here that have a vested interest in making sure no matter what they do that it gets a negative spin put on it. So if they announced core games at E3, now the upcoming ones must be casual Kinect games. Meanwhile in the real world Microsoft has invested in more studios, are spending more money on game development and have more games in development right now than any time in Xbox history.

On and on it goes. It's actually quite embarrassing when you look at it since this is supposed to be a gaming site. Instead it's become a Playstation site, which is a real shame since many of those loyal fans are the most vocal and fanatical. I've owned a Playstation system since Sony entered the videogame business. I think they've done a wonderful job. Where they have failed is create fanboys who seem to stop at nothing but to bring down the competition. That's not bringing gamers into the mix. It's wanting segregation with a group of Playstation fans who thing they are some special club. When in reality anyone can join at any time. I joined back in 1995. I was one of the first people out of my friends to buy one. It was $299 and I got it at the actual Sony store. I've supported their systems through the years and had lots of great memories. However for some odd reason I didn't turn into this 'fan' who feels the need to troll forums and help sell the Playstation brand. One who feels it's his duty to mock and bring down the competition. Even at that young age. I guess some people just don't have anything better to do with their lives than to act immature and ignorant, and those who disagrees with what I've said are probably the very folk I'm speaking about.

falviousuk1631d ago

This article from 2009, when the ranting from the sony fanboys was at its peak is still relevant today, and more so lately.

and watching sesslers soapbox regarding them was hilarious.

In what alternative universe that N4G lives on where MS underwhelmed with the announced exclusives for the xbone?

Below
Crimson Dragon
D4
Dead Rising 3
Forza Motorsport 5
Halo Sequel
Killer Instinct
Quantum Break
RYSE: Son of Rome
Sunset Overdrive

Along with titles that it shares with the PC like Titanfall and project spark.

Wither they will continue, wither these games will be good or not, wither some of them are timed exclusives is just PURE speculation at this point. In the mean time, in all the blunders of the xbone reveal, GAMES weren't an issue. Not at all.

MikeMyers1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

The PC argument seems to waffle depending on how it suits your hidden agenda. When you look at Xbox 360 and PS3 sales it's obvious the PC is not as much in competition with those consoles as many would point out when talking about exclusives. Not when the top selling franchise on both is Call of Duty and games available on the PC do so well on these consoles. So even though games like Titanfall will come to the PC that game will also attract console gamers and it's not coming to the PS4.

https://twitter.com/aarongr...

He said it's only on the PC and Xbox One. Could that change in the future? Sure, we've seen it before with games like Bioshock. The reality is even if it does sales will be flat when compared to how it is likely to sell on the Xbox One. It's about money and about trying to get people to buy your hardware. If the game is a huge success Microsoft may partner themselves with Respawn like they did with Epic and Gears of War. This is what console makers do, they try and coerce gamers to buy their hardware. It's been a common practice for many years. We've seen it play out on system like the PS2 with games like Grand Theft Auto. But for some reason people on forums don't like it when it doesn't happen on their preferred system. Oh well. That's life.

This is the business model we have and have to live with. Sony can release games like Killzone on the PC but they won't, they want you to buy Playstation systems. Microsoft is more likely to support the PC, after all they also do Windows. This is why you won't see Nintendo ip's on anything other than Nintendo platforms. That is all they do is games. Sony will release some games on Android devices because they also do smartphones and tablets. At the end of the day it's about being entertained but for some reason we have so called gamers who focus more on exclusivity. They use that as a tactic to help promote the system they like the most. So instead of acting like gamers on forums some choose to act like fanboys because they either A) can't afford having those systems, B) for personal reasons don't want to support certain companies, or C) don't feel it's necessary to own all those systems. Out of those 3 which group do you think talks the most, is the most vocal and show the most ignorance?

joefrost001631d ago

I keep hearing that but reality is the PlayStation brand has way more shooters than MS

gamertk4211631d ago

True, it's just that they are subpar and not of note.

-Superman-1631d ago

They mean Kinect exclusives

Jaces1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

I know for sure two are going to be Crackdown 3 and some kind of Fable game. The others are more than likely going to be Kinect orientated.

Nothing too get excited about, imo, but who knows..they may surprise me.

MizTv1631d ago

I love all these so called "exclusives"

AngelicIceDiamond1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

Aaron knows they have allot of making up to do. though I don't want them to over do it. Still wanna see more on Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break and eventually Black Tusk's new game.

The thing is with Microsoft you don't know whether it's just a timed exclusive or not. They've garnered such a bad reputation for that. Which is why most people are guessing that Titanfall will probably come to the PS4.
Anyway I'm interested to see what they announce.

B-radical1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

I dont see the first titanfall coming to ps4 imo But if there is a sequel i guarantee it will be on ps4 also

Because if it does well im sure sony would like to invest money into it also. Im not saying microsoft put a ton of money into btw

jeffgoldwin1631d ago

How would you guarantee that?

M-M1631d ago

Give it until sometime next year, guaranteed it will be announced for the PS4. Do you really think EA would pass up the chance of selling a game on another console?

FrigidDARKNESS1631d ago

TitanFalls releasing in March or April 2014 probably will be announced for ps4 in late 2014. Will grace the ps4 platform in in mid to late 2015 .

Jaces1631d ago

Mass Effect came to PS3 and no one really saw that coming...at least I didn't. So it's not too far off to see Titanfall on PS4 sometime in the future. I've learned a lot of patience this gen, waiting for timed exclusives is nothing new and I'm more than happy to wait. :)

Septic1631d ago

People have jumped on the hate bandwagon for so called timed exclusive content based on rumours and conjecture and whilst I do think Titanfall will make its way to the PS4 eventually, fanboys are downplaying the importance of this anyway.

Also, what about the exclusive games that MS does have? They look brilliant. You're telling me Project Spark, Forza, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct, D3, Ryse among other games don't so anything for you? But the likes of Killzone, Infamous and Knack among other games do? Well, fair enough but outside of N4G and its very specific and often biased community, I'm confident that people are of the view that Microsoft has a very solid line up.

Whilst I'm getting both consoles, the X1 is the first one Ill get because the games really appeal to me. In all honesty, I was hoping the PS4 had the far better lineup so I could just pick that up first and be content with that for a bit whilst not haemorrhaging my cash flow.

Grown Folks Talk1631d ago

Infamous was the only exclusive that I was interested in, & it's not launch. Quarter 1 2014.

B-radical1631d ago

Yeah i thought infamous looked great and fun but that was the only ps4 title that had me wowed

I will get one eventually probably in 2 yrs or so but for now its xbox 1

Jaces1631d ago

While I agree with you on the weak lineup for the PS4 SO FAR, I'm willing to bet they're going to show some heavy hitters come TGS and GC.

It would be killer to see some Last Guardian and possibly Agent...yes, I still believe Agent is still around and in development.

Grown Folks Talk1628d ago

Last Guardian is apparently on hold right now. Looked cool. I wouldn't mind a sequel to SotC either.

from the beach1631d ago

Still a crazy number of Microsoft studios unrepresented..

Hoping for Lionhead, Rare and Crackdown at Gamescom.

gamertk4211631d ago

Crackdown 3 would be ill.

DiRtY1631d ago

I am hoping for something made by Lionhead and more footage from the Black Tusk Game.

Maybe something from BigPark, MS Victoria or even MS Osaka or a 2nd Rare game.

The Xbox One surely has a great lineup already. And who cares if Titanfall will be on PS4 in spring 2015? It doesn't make that much of a difference anyway. Getting this game early will make people buy a Xbox One.

HarryMasonHerpderp1631d ago

"And who cares if Titanfall will be on PS4 in spring 2015? It doesn't make that much of a difference anyway. Getting this game early will make people buy a Xbox One"

That's true but it's a shitty practice.
It's not how the console war should be won in my opinion. Just throwing money around for timed exclusives is just lame. I would say the same if Sony or Nintendo did it.

shivvy241631d ago

umm people can still buy it for pc so no , i was actually interested in Project Spark then a few days later found out its for PC too ! im getting a ps4 and Spark on pc

DiRtY1631d ago

"It is not how the console war should be won"

Seriously? How is this worse than buying a studio to make them develop games just for one console and stop developing for other platforms?

How is this different than Sony paying EA for exclusive DLC for Assassin's Creed 3 or BF3?

How is this different than Nintendo paying Sega for Bayonetta 2?

This is not a shitty practice it is just normal business. Every manufacturer tries to secure exclusive content for their respective consoles. Big deal. It just makes sense to do this.

HarryMasonHerpderp1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

Well for one thing I can look at a PS3 exclusive and go yes that will probably never come to the Xbox 360. Where as there are many Xbox exclusives that have found there way to the PS3.

Consumers don't know where they stand THAT is why it is a bad practice. You have a PS4 and decide to buy an Xbox One for Titanfall because it's "exclusive". Then it releases on the PS4 at a later date. Are you going to be happy about that or pissed?

The thing with Microsoft is that they do this a lot and that is the problem.

As for Sony paying for exclusive DLC that is also a shitty practice. I don't condone it.

DiRtY1631d ago

Well a lot is quite a vague statement. We are talking about a handful of games here anyway. BioShock, Lost Planet and Mass Effect are the major ones. Sure you might add Limbo or Braid, but that is it then. FFXIII. FFvXIII, Resident Evil 5, GTA IV, Assassin's Creed, Tekken were all Playstation exclusives and MS surprised a lot of people that these games made their way on the 360 / Xbox One.

People said the same thing about Splinter Cell Conviction. Check the comments.

http://n4g.com/news/525464/...

Or Left 4 Dead. Check the comments.

http://n4g.com/news/178534/...

If you buy the Xbox One to play Titanfall, you will get the Xbox One to play Titanfall. Simple, isn't it?

It is not like your "investment" decreases in value if the game releases on another console 12 months later.

HarryMasonHerpderp1631d ago (Edited 1631d ago )

None of those games you listed were ever PS3 exclusives apart from FFVsXIII (which has been 7 years in the making mind you).
I'm talking about when a game is announced as exclusive but is in reality an exclusive for only a limited time. You don't see how lame that is?

"If you buy the Xbox One to play Titanfall, you will get the Xbox One to play Titanfall. Simple, isn't it?"

Listen dude you don't have to start patronising me. We can have a discussion without getting emotional. An my point is if I knew a handful of games I liked the look of were only timed exclusives and were going to release on a console I already own, then I wouldn't of wasted a ton of money purchasing a new console to play them.

ThanatosDMC1631d ago

Exclusives is why we have TLOU, Uncharted, GT5, Halo, Forza, Gears, etc.

That's not a good thing?
