Microsoft has something interesting to announce about “Europe’s biggest franchise” at Gamescom later this month. Speaking on Major Nelson’s podcast, Xbox Studios head Phil Spencer divulged details about Microsoft’s presentation at Gamescom.
Feature: You can use the kinect as a football.
*que in the videos of hundreds of people accidently headbutting their tv*
kinect as a football? so you go into a fetus position and roll around then? With multiplayer, friends kicking you around. EDIT: oh i get it know, you meant kinect as itself.. i'm so stupid. but my idea would totally make fifa sell 10x more,right?
New slogan - "You are the football".
don't forget about the powerbrick as the back up football.
if its anything like the football announcement they had in America then i wouldn't get too excited
"Microsoft has an announcement around "Europe's biggest franchise" at Gamescom" Killzone?
Why not the Console itself?
Exactly what it is.
FIFA Kinect Edition: http://www.youtube.com/watc... 'tis the future! NOT!
Probably some ultimate cards for Fifa 14.
Damn it! Please let there be another announcement besides Fifa!
Microsoft: Other announcements besides Fifa? I'm sure we can fit PES somewhere into the conference.
Football Manager!! :) Ikea is also a big franchise in Europe too... But not FIFA.... please not FIFA... Then again, EA did a deal with Liverpool and Barcelona, could it be a deal with the worlds greatest team, and Barcelona. Maybe Xbox owners only get those teams, the rest have to pay for them... or something similar... a virtual Anfield, Nou Camp...
I think it could be Football Manager.
Pfff Liverpool world greatest team please get out of here. The world greatest team right now is pretty much debatable but it's definitely not Liverpool
Greatest team in waiting, as far asI am concerned... Kratos, having fun.... they are my team, 1000%! Clearly though, best team right now is PSG! Maybe they will become a brand name, but only for as long as the money is there, or else those PSG fans will go back to watching rugby....please do not take my sarcasm serious though...
Timed exclusive DLC
EXACTLY, Timed exclusive DLC that Xbox owners get to exclusively pay for before people on other platforms get to pay for it. Millions of money well spent.
Microsoft went deep in their pockets for exclusive release for 30 days.
Haha neixus, have a bubble :D.
Fifa/ better with kinect slogan
FIFA DLC incoming
What's Microsoft going to announce about Gran Turismo? I kid, it's gotta to be about FIFA ultimate team
It's either Fifa or CoD, both sell millions everytime one is released here in the UK and go straight to the no.1 slot of the sales charts. Knowing Microsoft it's probably timed exclusive on Fifa 14 or the new Cod, or timed exclusive DLC, i can't see it being much more than that myself
Europe's biggest franchise? Could this be League of Legends? I recall seeing a NeoGaf rumor on League of Legends coming to Xbox One. edit: lol... how could I forget Fifa? Yeah... guessing they are going to elaborate on their deal with EA.
Having LOL on the one would be big, very big.
No it wouldn't, console players and pc players play games in a totally diffrent way. When i'm playing WoW, i got 20+ binds on my keyboard and mouse total. I don't know if League got that many spells though.
I play LOL on my Mac, but im down for some LOL on X1.
It's impossible to bring LoL to consoles. Just way too many keys, most champion work with skillshots which are impossible on controllers, balance will just die, it's just not possible. Edit: Is it possible on XBO? I know KB/M is possible on Ps3/4 but no clue about Xbox.
mouse and keyboard support? hope it comes to ps4 as well then, lol
i know the keyboard is supported (unsure of how much it is supported but it can work for typing in codes and messages and that related stuff) on the 360 unsure about the mouse though... keyboard support might follow on through to the xbox one hopefully
Why bring LoL to consoles when its free and everyone owns a PC/Mac already? There's no point in being ported to consoles, especially because you would need KB/M to play it, which would make it ridiculous to play in a console instead of just playing in your PC.
What happened to you?
you must be patient my child good things come to those who wait ;)
And this is how you got six bubbles. Congrats good fellow.
yep its got 2 be fifa.
Can only be FIFA.
Gran Turismo? Lol
lmao, that's what I thought, too.
LOL! That's probably the 3rd biggest after Fifa and Cod, and it would make me cry a little if they bought it away from Sony :( I can't believe i am now hypothetically thinking Microsoft would buy Polyphony Digital, damn you mike32uk!! lol
sorry mate just a bit of light hearted fun :) I envisage hell freezing over before this happens haha!
I bet it is some Kinect features for Fifa.
Im thinking of exclusive DLC.
I thought that was already announced, but it wasn't a major bit of DLC
at the reveal they said the xbox versions would have exclusive ultimate team stuff but didn't clarify what it would be... so i'd assume that's what the announcement will be, clarification of what the exclusive stuff is
oh yea, bring it on, MS.
It would be funny if game informer leaked it like last time.
This could be interesting as Fifa sells better on the Sony consoles apart from here in the UK so this could be a good move by Microsoft to try and get fans of fifa from the PS brand to the Xbox brand but I don't think it will make any difference this year as Fifa is not a game people will upgrade there current console for.
Well being that Sony themselves are an official partner to FIFA i would think they would sell more of the game on there systems. i doubt anything microsoft does will help them much cause Sony puts up so much marketing for there stuff at the games! microsoft isn't even on the sponsors list.
Sony is not a partner any more they were Champions league partners but now its HTC. As I said it should be interesting to see what EA do with Microsoft but I don't think it will make a difference this fifa as fifa is not the reason why someone would buy a xbox one or PS4 or even a Wiiu even though its not it this year.
here. 2014 fifa sponsors http://www.fifa.com/aboutfi... http://www.fifa.com/mm/phot...
GRAN TURISMO 6 IS COMING TO THE XBOX ONE!?!?!?!?!?M GIGATON In all seriousness, it'll most likely be League of Legends or more FIFA.
Call of duty is miles ahead as far as big franchises in Europe go...
actually no. cod isnt that #1 in europe like in usa. its only top 2,3 in the charts every year.
Really, I thought COD, was way bigger, certainly seems that way here in the UK? FIFA it is then...
MW3 was the top selling game in Europe this gen.
Gran Turismo ? lol jk , probably something to do with Fifa ultimate team or whatever.
1 extra Gold pack for FIFA Ultimate team, XBOX ONE EXCLUSIVE!!!! INSTANT BUY.
Fifa exclusive Kinect feature: You are the ball.
Great, now people can kick me. Best feature ever!
MS fans already know how it feels to be the ball. They have been getting kicked around for years.
GTAV Exclusive content :D
You know that Sony has contracts with Rockstar? Marketing ,exclusive Headset as example.
Funny how if this was Microsoft throwing money at Rockstar they would be evil.
