Microsoft will be at PAX Prime this weekend showing off Xbox One and a load of games at its booths
The list of games keeps growing!
I agree. Another new game is being announced? Absolutely ridiculous I'm excited. EDIT: Sounds like that 1 billion dollars invested into games is starting to show.
So far MS has held word when it comes to games :) Every event at least one new big title announced.
@foxgod Sorry to jump in but what game did they announce at Gamescon? Did they even announce any games? Edit: Oh wow I do not know how I missed that one. I don't recall seeing n4g posting an announcement article on it. I probably missed it. Well here hopes to a better Fable game.

OOOOOOH YEAHHH!!! I hope it is what i think it is.
"...other “surprises at the booth,” including games Major Nelson said he wasn’t at “liberty to divulge . . . yet.” Micro are just starting to show off now. I like it...so bring it on.
Epic's true gears of war or maybe Fortnite is coming to Xbone? I want a true gears of war from Epic though, the multiplayer on gears 1-3 are fun.. especially the Horde mode...I didn't like the overrun mode in Judgment
He said gameS. It's probably more then one.
I doubt anything about games growing, but I would love to see more on Sunset Overdrive or Black Tusk's game...and better yet, A RELEASE DATE?!
I'm curious about Fable Legends as well. I hope it's Black Tusk game or new Halo trailer
that is typically what game libraries on consoles/pc do though right? lol i mean... i would be very shocked if it was shrinking.
Well, they can also stay the same for unforeseen time.
haha this is true. sounds like a dig at the Wii U :P
N4G: Where even the undisputed truth can be disagreed upon.
“surprises”.....So Xbox One on 11-01.....
DRM is BAAACCCCKKKK BBBAAABBBYYYY!!!! Is that the surprise?
lol i wouldn't be shocked.
Not cool. Don't even joke about it.
Why would they start another PR nightmare and kill themselves with that announcement when it starts looking good for them?
yeah sobotz but that's the best Rowdius could do, nobody ever said trolls were smart.
It was a joke guys, come on
Sony asking to use the cloud dedicated servers? A hoping for a release date the 8th November in the uk.
lol...POWWA OF DA CLAAAAWD
Runs TitanFall so yeh, more POWA!! Dedicated servers powered by the cloud™ Don't hate.
no not power...dedicated servers
they couldn't even if they wanted too. there powered by aa batteries. :)
Lol you try to hard
Blu-ray. Lol. 'Nuff said. This is to you only, not to any other haters. Sony's first party games have always had dedicated servers. Can't say the same for 360 ones.
300000 dedicated servers! Nice!
Uncharted games don't have dedicated servers though...nor does GT5, PASBR, MLB The Show, lbp games..all P2P
300K virtual servers (far less real/physical servers, i think its like 10/15K)
fanboys have a real problem with the truth eh?
MS just keeps delivering. C'mon MS....Crackdown 3! Make it HAPPEN!
That would be an excellent announcement. As long as they go back to what made Crackdown 1 great. Not a fan of the sequel.
So true, the 2nd one just wasn't the same :(
The only way that comes out is if it had an extremely low budget, other than that, I doubt it. No one even bought the first two.
Not true the 1st had great sales but people attributed it to the Halo 3 beta(needed it to play). That was actually a brilliant marketing move by micro...and people who would have otherwise never played it actually really liked Crackdown.
Didn't they try to hype people with the same kind of thing at Gamescon? http://www.vg247.com/2013/0... And yet........nothing really happened......I swear I don't remember seeing Microsoft unveil 'Exclusives' outside of which we already knew about.... Promises and hype, Microsoft didn't really do much at all at Gamescon, lol. I think this is just damage control to hype people up for something to simply stay up-to-speed with Sony since SONY already announced big surprises and games. If Microsoft didn't repeat or do what Sony already said or did, they'd be behind and they're trying EXTREMELY hard to catch up.
and in all honesty, sonys gamescom was nothing spectacular either.
People watched and got what they wanted with the Sony conference....the release date. Everything else was bonus. I'm not here to follow through with people being fanboys of one or the other, just speaking the truth on what I saw, Promises that Microsoft has trouble delivering and are trying hard to make up for ever since e3.
"Sony since SONY already announced big surprises and games." Other than a few Indies games and Minecraft finally hitting PS4, what big surprises and games are you talking about? please elaborate.
few indies lol
'a Few indies'? Oh cmon. The biggest surprise for me is the actual fact that all of Sonys' internal studios have yet to actually reveal what they're working on for PS4. Gamescon could've been used to show what Santa Monica is working on, maybe a Naughty Dog tease, I found it enticing to see that it's still a mystery, rather. So, the surprise outside of the fact that I wasn't anticipating anything other than watching the conference just to learn about the release date is that no huge game from Sony's internal studios was shown, meaning, there's a mountain of exclusives just waiting to be ripped open. Also, my comment wasn't talking about surprises for Sony at Gamescon, as I don't remember Sony promising surprises for Gamescon. I was referencing Surprises for PAX Prime since Sony announced Games/Surprises for PAX Prime and as a follow-through 1-2-3 days after, Microsoft said the exact same thing, wasn't referencing Gamescon-surprises, jfyi.
@ Mounce I hope you do know MS has many internal teams (Rare, lionhead ,ms osaka, twisted pixel,lift,black tusk, 343 ...)some of which are also working on multiple projects yet to be shown ...and even the halo shown at e3 is rumored not to be halo 5....so both sony and ms devs hav unannouncd titles they are working on which haven't been shown...and also the rumors of some 3rd party devs creating exclusives for xbox one have been making the headlines lately.
Fable legends was a huge announcement.
Agreed! It might even be one of the biggest announcements at gamescom.
So you didn't hear about Fable Legends or Fighters Within ?
'Fighters Within' / A Kinect-only game.... Just no. Fable Legends? I'll wait for gameplay first, not a CG movie, thanks. A new Fable game just like a new Gears game isn't really much of a surprise.... it's an IP most people know the name of so it should be common sense that Microsoft would want a new one on their new console....
"The biggest surprise for me is the actual fact that all of Sonys' internal studios have yet to actually reveal what they're working on for PS4." You're surprised that Sony's own first party studios are working on PS4 games that haven't been announced yet? Yea, I would have never of thought anything that radical to be announced. You know what also blows my mind is that other companies too are working on games for the PS4 and Xbox One that haven't been announced yet. Mind is officially blown.
Fable Legends and Fighter Within were announced and if you actually watch the gameplay videos you'll see it looks good I hope they show Cliffy B's new game and announce it's another Xbox One exclusive
@Mounce I know it seems like your getting ganged up on (your are in a X1 article afterall) I'm sorry for that. I consider myself a sensible user here. "The biggest surprise for me is the actual fact that all of Sonys' internal studios have yet to actually reveal what they're working on for PS4." That's great news but not a surprise. 343, Remedy, Black tusk, Lion head, Play Ground Games (Forza Horizon devs), Rare are all working X1 titles also. That shouldn't come to a surprise really all of Sony and MS devs are creating big projects for them. Gamescom there is no winner to be had. Its not E3 they don't bring big guns at Gamescom. Surely you can understand that.
"So, the surprise outside of the fact that I wasn't anticipating anything other than watching the conference just to learn about the release date is that no huge game from Sony's internal studios was shown, meaning, there's a mountain of exclusives just waiting to be ripped open. " So people went to Gamescon to hear the PS4 release date? Ha ha ha ha ha! Come on Team Sony, are you happy being represented by people this ridiculous? This guy claims that Sony's surprise to gamers was NOT REVEALING BIG STUDIO GAMES at Gamescon! Looooool! Is this ninja for real?? Am I being punk'd??! Lol Sony blew their load at the reveal back in Feb and it became evident at E3 when they announced only one new AAA game and at Games on when they focused n indie games yet again. Obviously they'll announce new games at a later stage but let's not make it seem like they held back, they simply had nothing ready to show. "
So what was Division exclusive DLC / features, Peggle + PvZ Garden Warfare timed exclusivity, FIFA 14 for euros that pre-order, and Fighter Within if not a bunch of game announcements and surprises?
Something from Epic or Black Tusk? And I still want to see gameplay from Quantum Break But this is probably over-hyping, MS is more likely going to give something, just like with Fifa. And one month to November, it is indeed time for a release date, not exactly a surprise.
I have a feeling that everything from Epic will be multiplatform this next Gen. I hope Im wrong though. I really want to see some Quantum Break gameplay.
More DLC and time exclusive that PS4 will get screwed over :(
there dlc is timed. sony's is permanent.
No TitanFall at PAX? Bummer!
"and other “surprises at the booth,” including games Major Nelson said he wasn’t at “liberty to divulge . . . yet.”" Games as in plural. I like the sound of that. Crackdown 3 could be one of them, figures crossed.
If Crackdown 3 is announced, I may just have to start saving up.
Conker's Bad Fur Day 2 a new Banjo game... Battletoads... :P
Quantum break gameplay + release date = me happy
Here's a list of games that will be playable. Bf4 will be playable on xb1 http://majornelson.com/2013... Would like to see some new gameplay footage of Sunset Overdrive. Epic may announce an exclusive title.
I'm betting the game announcements are Crackdown 3 and or Fortnite from EPIC Yip wanna see more of Sunset Overdrive, the teased Black Tusk Game and some actual gameplay footage from Quantum Break Keep it coming MS, @ easterbalboa, Dirty Pimp and all SONY loving coherts Our under specd, Triple A battery powered Cloud or Hot air based console just keeps getting better. Not forgetting it runs the worst games riggghhht I mean like Ryse Son of a Gnome that has been downgraded to original Xbox graphics because of yeild issues etc etc etc We have Dead Rising 3 The new power point presentation from Blue Castle and Capcom with pop up card board cut out zombies Project Spark the Little Big Planet copy cat. Forza 5 the flashy new Xbox Live Arcade title that uses MS Hot Air to create the Driveretard the stupidest AI ever seen in a video game. Oh thats right and every game is Kinect you know because we all love to jump around and flap our hands wildly in the air like we just dont care. Say CHEEEESE everybody to the nice people from the NSA. Well thought I would save the Trolls the trouble since MS is all about TV and Kinect, hates indies, places everything behind a paywall and the last thing they would ever invest in would be games Riiiiggght. Ohhhhh thats right I am being sarcastic. Still day in, day out the trolls keep whispering the Xbone sucks balls just in case we didn't hear them the last few trillionth times. Oh well couldn't give a flying toss about bubbles so all you Gaystation Fourplay Mofo's knock yourselves out. Funny how we are the ones who are always butthurt and yet MS have a lot of prominent females from the head of the Xbox division, 343i and so on. I mean seriously isn't SONY really a boys own exclusive club....if you ask me that ummm just sounds kinda GAAAYYY!!! I mean its like I'm pyschic a new X1 article that has no references to their console and yet in droves here they will come. Its like watching a remake of Field of Dreams "Microsoft build the Xbox One and the Trolls will come" Ohhhhh sorry my bad I keep forgetting WE are the trolls or are WE sheep sh!t I don't know maybe we are both as if I friggen care.
Everyone optimistic about MS now?
Yes, Everyone..that had intentions of getting the console in the first place should be excited if they are back on board.
They deliver new AAA next gen games. Yes.
