Phantom Dust Reboot "In Discussion" For Xbox One, Says Microsoft Studios Boss

Does anyone remember Phantom Dust? Anyone? Bueller? It was released back in 2004/2005 for the original Xbox, and remains a bit of a cult hit to this day. That's a fact not lost on Microsoft Studio boss Phil Spencer, who casually dropped it into a conversation about what Xbox has up its sleeve next in the battle to win hearts and minds in Japan with the Xbox One. (Phantom Dust, Xbox One)

Phil has been dropping a lot of rumored hints of possible franchises to bring back. This and Battletoads would be awesome to see on the new Xbox One.

Phantom Dust was my SHIT! Ice Sword- Fire Sword combo ftw! Have a psycho Spear just in case you need to bust someones shield. If this turns out to be true I will hug my XBone in my PS4's face.... then I will apologize to my PS4 and say it was a misunderstanding.

I had over 1000 people tweet Phil after I found out that the creator wanted to do a sequel. Hopefully this comes to light, what an amazing game it was for xbox.

I think they really want to compete against Infamous.

If they wanted to compete against infamous they would have released a new Crackdown game.

I remember when the Halo 3 Beta came with a free copy of crackdown, lol.
