Hands on Impressions of the Microsoft Xbox One on the Xbox One Tour

Bill Loguidice writes, "Once inside the large warehouse area, we were treated to our choice of multiple game areas where we could sit or stand and play some of the Xbox One launch and launch window titles, which included: Crimson Dragon, Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, Killer Instinct, LocoCycle, Ryse: Sone of Rome, Max: The Curse of the Brotherhood, Zoo Tycoon, and Kinect Sports: Rivals." (Crimson Dragon, Dead Rising 3, Forza Motorsport 5, Killer Instinct, Kinect Sports Rivals, Loco Cycle, Max and the Curse of Brotherhood, Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One, Zoo Tycoon)

Great article and every game sounds like good besides Crimson Dragon. I may even pick up Max and the Curse of the Brotherhood for that childhood platformer nostalgia

Keen to have a crack at loco cycle looks fun.
christocolus  +   857d ago
ryse still has me hooked.and i feel crytek has kept the single player under wraps for a good reason.that aside im getting more interested in zoo tycoon also but i will be getting ryse,dr3 and probably d4 or forza5 at launch...
lifeisgamesok  +   857d ago
I agree Ryse is unbelievable. Ryse has the best graphics and the combat looks good

Is D4 a launch title too? If it is I'm going to be so broke next month. I'm already getting Ryse, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct and Watch dogs
christocolus  +   857d ago
nice dogs seems cool but it doesnt apeal to me much..d4 is going to be releasd within the launch window

you should really check out zoo tycoon...most previews have been positive...and of all the launch titles it seems to stand out in its own unique way.
Regis  +   856d ago
I got Ryse, Watchdogs, AC4, DR3, BF4, Destiny, Titanfall, DA Inquisition, Fable for Xbox1, Halo5, I think that's what I got so far.

urwifeminder  +   857d ago
Yeah pretty much what I am getting as well have not seen much tycoon will check it out.
PsylentKiller  +   857d ago
Ryse is a day one purchase for me. I'm just hoping it's more than a hack and slash game. I hope there are some kind of puzzle mechanics or something to break up the combat once in a while. If not, that's ok, I'm still very interested in the story they want to tell .
Goku781  +   857d ago
I was interested in seeing if crimson dragon would return to the panzer dragon glory but I guess not. One less game I'm not missing on that console. If Titan fall doesn't come to PS4 I guess Halo will be the only experience I'm half way interested in seeing what happens next. Real talk.
Ohlmay  +   857d ago
You're going to judge Crimson Dragon off 3 sentences... Wow, pathetic.
Naga  +   857d ago
Agreed that he is rushing to judgment, but that sort of remark is immature and unwarranted. What's actually pathetic is your inability to properly properly socialize.

Ohlmay  +   857d ago
I can't socialize because I find it pathetic that people judge a game off 3 sentences... That makes a lot of sense.
Goku781  +   857d ago
It's not that serious dude. Stop taking this stuff so personal. Have fun with your Xbox One on the 22 Nov
mhunterjr  +   856d ago
It's strange that this preview, from someone who doesn't like on-rails shooters in general, is what put you off on crimson Dragon.
PsylentKiller  +   857d ago
I'm also interested in deadrising 3. I played the hell out of the first game but the second had a horrible storyline and didn't really improve on the game at all. I really do hope they capture in this iteration the personality of their first Deadrising.
MacTastic  +   857d ago
All the pre build bugs aside it looks like a solid lineup. I really can't wait to see these games in actual final build game play. I wish Microsoft would release more positive articles and videos.

PsylentKiller  +   857d ago
Lol. PS4 looks quite good on paper but then again so does communism. Joking aside, MS is definitely trying to recover for their PR nightmare but they are bouncing back rather well and this tour is putting their product into the minds of the consumer again but this time with positive connotations.
alexkoepp  +   857d ago
PS4 next gen? Lol, current gen with a new coat of paint.

"we have cross game chat now"

You mean in 2 months you'll finally have a feature 360 has had for 8 years? Haha
Riderz1337  +   857d ago
What does Xbox One have? It has the "cloud" and yet Forza has no rain =(

Damn what a next gen game.

Lol @Vegeta, what's even more hilarious is Microsoft will be paying Sony to use the Blu Ray feature in their console. I love it.

You mean like how Xbox controller can now be recharged like PS3's could since 2006?
alexkoepp  +   857d ago
Lol @ the recharge, 360 did this with battery packs that you can replace for $8, when my PS3 controller couldn't hold a charge I had to throw it out and buy a new one for $50
GrandTheftZamboni  +   857d ago

I got a PS3 controller in 2007 and it's still going strong.
alexkoepp  +   857d ago
That's cause there aren't any games worth playing hardly on PS3 so you probably never ran the battery bad, I only played a handful of stuff on my PS3 but the controller eventually couldn't hold a charge.
WeAreLegion  +   857d ago
Whoa... How does a guy that says the PS3 has only a few good games have five bubbles?!? The same would go for anyone saying it about the 360. Both have incredible libraries. Stop trolling.
Animal Mutha 76  +   856d ago
Now now children...

Both consoles are implementing features the other had.
PFFT  +   856d ago
If it did have games worth playing you fools wouldnt be here trolling every single Xbox One article. But it seems all PS titles are short lived games, one hit wonders that arent worth a second glance. THAT does not include The Last of us of course. Cause that game is amazing!
abusador  +   856d ago
You mean xbone? Not even really a major step up from Xbox with the same mandated Laggy, half working BS kinect? Have you seen the lag in previews? Lol Keep waiting for Milo

You wish xbone was half of what ps4 is lol and your lucky Sony havers abs Sony, made Xbone change its anti consumer stance.

Funny w with kinect ps4 still sures does almos everything Xbone does and more. Remote play of all ps4 games killer feature abs more robust sharing lol

Killzone and infamous craps all over any Game shown on xbone and plays better too :) and 1080p :)
ALLWRONG  +   856d ago
How do you have 5 bubbles WeAreLegion? Oh... never mind I forgot I'M on N4G.
DigitalRaptor  +   850d ago
Tragically ignorant. Firstly, PS Vita has had cross game chat for well over a year, and provides that for free.

Next comes the whooping. PS4 features:

1) Play games as they download
2) Watch live streams of games your friends are playing and jump into the multiplayer feature of that game within seconds.
3) Jump into another person's game over the network, to take over/co-op.
4) Stream classic games when Sony lets you in 2014.
5) Download the single player and multiplayer separately.
6) Smart systems calculate games that you want to play and downloads them automatically.
7) Application and game multitasking and state switching.
8) Instant resume - playing a game? Turn off PS4 -> go away for an hour -> turn the PS4 on and instantly resume the game without booting up.
9) Updates download in the background without you ever knowing.
10) Instantly upload, share and stream your gameplay to different social sites.
11) Remote play built into its core. If you invest in Vita TV, you can play on other devices and screens whilst another family member watches TV.
12) PS4 camera can be used to navigate the OS using voice commands, and probably hand gestures. It can do facial and speech recognition as well as games.
13) Dedicated tablet and mobile support for second-screen gaming. Results already out there.
14) PlayStation app to view your profile, friends progress, statuses and purchase games to be downloaded to your PS4 remotely.
15) Sony is bringing in unprecedented indie support and pushing those games to the forefront, handing indie developers the toolset which provides them the means to create unique, fun and impressive experiences very quickly and easily.
16) MMOs on console as a standard.
17) Free-to-play as a standard.
18) Cross-buy and cross-play as a standard.
19) DualShock 4 is completely refined and re-engineered, but maintains the classic PlayStation style.
20) DS4 has a touchpad, which has already given developers interesting ideas, and now that Valve is pushing a touchpad on their controller, it's going to look less and less "gimmicky" once it's put to use.
21) The light-bar on the DS4, means that the camera can see where players are positioned and on split-screen games it will shuffle the screen order. And that is just one possible use of the light-bar and how it can impact gameplay and experience.

And you think that's all? Oh so naive..

yes- look at the Sony/Nintendo articles. the 'disagrees' still aren't has horrid unless it's a 'pro-XB1' or even a 'neutral' comment.

I'm not even talking about just Xbox One articles. This ish is everywhere no matter what console the article is covering.

I'm just saying it's a damn shame seeing it everywhere. Don't come at me with these type of comments with the tone you're using. Smh.

DistroyerOfFanbums  +   857d ago
You started this mess so you get off the internet and any other obsessed fan,moreover I really don't understand why you guys have to defend your console of choice in every article (which ever article it may be).What happens when you're off the internet, do you all mock them, do you punch a guy in the face for buying a console that is contrary to yours?

Be true to yourself, if you feel like that on the internet why not off the internet? You wouldn't because in a real life scenario it's ignorance. It's like some one disagreeing in the store with another person because he prefers a samsung galaxy over an iPhone. They would get in your face for saying what he can and can't do with his own money..

Where is the value of opinion, where is the freedom of choice without persecution?

Life's to short to put your heart an soul into a device that doesn't know you exist. All fanboys will look back and laugh when they establish themselves in life and think at how they used to worship a piece of Machine.

Fanboyism is a religion folks, it's related to materialism..

I went to this event here in Philadelphia and I must say, I walked away impressed. Lots of variety on display from kids games (Max, Kinect Sports Rivals), to core games (DR3, Forza 5, KI, Ryse). Killer Instinct in particular impressed me very much as the game is GORGIOUS but plays even better! 60FPS action really helps. Forza 5 was my most anticipated game going in and it didn't disappoint. Graphics are AMAZING! Sound was AMAZING! Im a sim guy so I turned all assists off and struggled to come in last place every single time...its going to be fun learning the new tire physics. Overall, I enjoyed my time there as the DJ kept the sounds coming and the staff was very friendly. Wish I didn't have my daughter with me at the time as she wouldn't stop nagging about the park trip I promised her after we'd leave haha.
