Interesting rumors.

Forza Horizon: Pretty much expected this, seems like they're trying to push the envelop with this one. We'll see, I liked the first one.

White Xbone incoming: Hmm. Might get this one, just for a great contrast between my PS4 and XBO.

Halo Anniversary 2: I'm guessing Halo 3, ODST, and Reach (maybe 4, but I doubt it). 1080p @ 60fps. LMAO at Halo 5 beta, well they did say it'll be coming in 2014, but not in what form.

Quantum Break: We'll see. Remedy is known for delays, and MS has yet to announce much of its TV stuff. Maybe the game is Season 1 for the fall, then the TV show is Season 2 for the Spring based off the events of the game, and vice versa each year. That would be interesting, especially if it's based on the results of how the majority of gamers played the scenes out like The Walking Dead Results.

Sunset Overdrive: I'm interested in this, but I need to see more. Insomniac has lost a bit of my faith with FUSE, and some backwards ideas, but here's hoping it's good.

Black Tusk cancelled project: It's stupid if true. So basically they're completely Gears now. Why cancel a game that's already in development.

Fable Legends: I don't like Fable.

First Titanfall DLC: Probably delayed until June for E3 hype, and then sometime later in 2014 for the second DLC.

Crackdown 3: Hopefully it's like the first.

Tier 2 and Tier 3 countries: Late 2014 Tier 2, 2015 Tier 3 and unfortunately it also mean MS is going to be behind in sales all generation.

$399 XB1 this year? "Maybe one without an Optical Disc Drive.": I'd rather they take out Kinect.

Games with Gold on Xbox One starting April: A good way to get people buying XBO's. TitanFall in March, Games 4 Gold in April.

Big OS update in March: Hopefully fixing content management, look, and removing footprint.

Bluetooth adapter is coming at some point: Headsets????

Good rumors, hopefully some come true. Now where's my PS4 rumors.

truefan11361d ago

Lots of great info. A lot of big games coming, in terms of The hard drive, just give me the patch to use my own.

Hercules1891361d ago

Abizzel- Black tusk isnt just Gears and they didnt say they cancelled whatever they were working on. They arent going to be another 343i. From what I heard they are supposed to be another Naughty Dog like studio where they can work on multiple projects at a time. They might be small now but by next year I predict they are gonna be huge.

It should be Halo 2 remake /remaster.

'Quantum Break: We'll see. Remedy is known for delays, and MS has yet to announce much of its TV stuff.

No...the TV show is going to come with the game it self...it doesn't release at different times. You finish a mission then you unlock an episode...then you get to watch it or you can ignore it and keep on playing.
Its probably film in a way so that the decisions you make can impact

'Black Tusk cancelled project: It's stupid if true. So basically they're completely Gears now. Why cancel a game that's already in development.'

We don't know much about the new game....Phil Spencer said it on hold or something.

'Fable Legends: I don't like Fable.'

If they release a 1TB drive within a year of launch and the rest of us are stuck at 500GB that is going to anger some folks. I guess it's the risk of being an early adopter but still lame.

lets_go_gunners1361d ago

They did say they would release the patch to use external HDD so just buy a 2tb of ebay.

SLUG1361d ago

hope soon because i'm running out of space soon

BX811361d ago

True. I just want an update to see how much of my hd space I've used. I don't download a lot of games so I don't see me using all my hd space too soon.

n4rc1361d ago

Gotta figure... Not all games are 30gb.. Think dr3 was only 9..

So we should all have room for awhile.. But they will need to get that external HD stuff patched through fairly soon..

LexHazard791361d ago

I want to know what options they have for the early adopters. External Hdd or is "limited 1tb sku" then they roll out the hard drive in a kit? Its gonna be interesting to see thats for sure.

Canadianfubar1360d ago

I agree with others that releasing a 1TB HDD console in November really smacks the face of launch day supporters. With no option to upgrade is the external HDD support going to include game transfer or installs?
MS should offer a free labour upgrade if you send in your Xbox One to get a 1TB HDD. Just pay for the HDD and MS transfers all your info over and recertifies the Warranty (which is important).

DanielGearSolid1361d ago

Side note: Ppl give this game alot if praise based on CG cutscenes

lets_go_gunners1361d ago

Nope, It's because it's made by Insomniac...The guys behind the good ratchet and clank games and resistance.

MasterCornholio1361d ago (Edited 1361d ago )

And Fuse.

I use to be a huge fan of Insomniac games because of Ratchet and Clank but their recent games haven't been to good in my opinion. Fuse was a real stinker.

aviator1891361d ago

besides, Phil Spencer just commented that the daily build is looking greater, graphically, than the cgi trailer.

rela82me1361d ago

Sure they do, because the CG cutscenes give you a taste of the most important factor in a game... The vision of the game... So yeah, it may not be a graphical representation of the physical game, it shows you the art style and style of gameplay that they are working towards. Based on their concept and what info they have on the game shows some individuality in the game market.

Based on everything we've seen thus far, I am not worried that this title will sit on the shelves untouched. If marketed and utilized properly, this could be the new IP that defines the direction of where MS wants to go with their console. Not necessarily going for the BEST visuals, however focuses on bringing the BEST games to their platforms.

Fireseed1361d ago

It'd be upsetting if the 1tb drive thing is true since I already bought one. But at the same time time I've already upgraded it to a 2tb HDD so what do I care?

Cherchez La Ghost1361d ago

You updated the X1 with a 2TB HDD?

Fireseed1361d ago

Yeah, it's actually EXTREMELY easy however it will void your warranty.

optimus1361d ago

he probably got it modded...or thought people were talking about the ps4, in which case he pulled a Homer.

Godmars2901361d ago

Weren't they promising external HDD usage? What would be the point of releasing a new model, and so soon, unless it was all empty PR talk.

LackTrue4K1361d ago

"What would be the point of releasing a new model???"

Microsoft+gamer= ez $$$ out of user's pocket.

SLUG1361d ago

yes they did promising a external hard drive it might come soon i hope
i have one picked out a 4tb external hard drive for xbox one but cant use it until ms give us a update to use it hope this is coming soon

CYCLEGAMER1360d ago

Well the rumor did say that it will be 1tb without a disc drive.

Godmars2901360d ago

That would even be worse. Would exclude and limit choices of owners of the new model. They could only buy DL content.

SlavisH21361d ago (Edited 1361d ago )

i was going to do a ssd upgrade but ..... i like my warranty :) . Looks really easy to do from what i have seen

n4rc1361d ago

Was easy enough on 360 slims.. They all use the same 2.5 laptop drives.. I used my old 60gb on my slim.. Just had to break the chassis open and use the bare drive..

But I heard ms checks fw on HDS. So it has to be a ms drive or can be flagged and banned.. So who knows.. Ms has never issued a 2tb drive afaik
