Halo 2 Anniversary? Halo 5 in 2015? A white Xbox? Leaks everywhere! IGN considers what happens if they're all true.
This video is brought to us by Sony!?! LIES ALL LIES! I hope MS can offer a sku that has a 1TB HDD and comes in white plus has the Blu-ray drive.
Unfortunately like you said, its unlikely. But that would be the dream console. 1tb and all the features of a current console (disc drive)
Que the "I have a dream" speech for the fanboys.
What would be dreamy would be persistent digital game collections.
While your dreaming of having a 1tb hdd in a x1, im living in reality with a 1tb sshd in my ps4.
I'd say more likely you will be offered a proprietary Microsoft branded 1TB HDD for well above what a typical one retails for. Why else would Microsoft have all of those fancy USB 3.0 ports w/o support of any expandable disk drives whatsoever? Sony learned a hard lesson on this w/ the Vita, and it seems very possible that the reason why the ps4 must be cracked open to be expanded upon unlike last gen when you could do it externally is because the Vita's negative reception in those regards forced them to change their plans. I wonder if a move like this would hurt MS in anyway, or if their fans would just accept it & find a way to justify it like they have everything else after the drm reversal? At the end of the day, companies pull some shady moves, consumers shouldn't let blind allegiance take over so they can do all of the apologizing for the company, we should call these companies out in the internet age when it can actually make a difference. Not just for MS, but any company, Sony & Nintendo included, when they practice greedy tactics. At the end of the day, unless you hold mega stock in these businesses, you should be worried about your own wallets well being over a huge corporations, that's just common sense.
If they release Halo 2 it's just going to remind everyone how bad all their multiplayer maps since Halo 2 really are. ( Maybe like 5-10 good maps since then total )
If the leaks are true then Halo 2 Anniversary, Quantum Break, Forza Horizon, and Sunset Overdrive will own this year Halo 5 and Fable Legends will own 2015 with exclusives from Epic Gears of War 4, Crackdown 3, and the Platinum games exclusive will own 2016 Xbox One!
That is a beautiful pipeline of games. Looks that billion dollar invest is paying off. For the next three years XB1 will have the best exclusives, book it.
Exactly...IF true...its a really solid lineup of games.
If this is all true, they might get me to buy one. So far I've been really happy with PS4 and was going to buy Titanfall on PC but that is a steady pipline of what appear to be quality games (haven't seen much from most of them yet). My gaming preferences may switch from last gen and have the ps4 as my main system for exclusives and multiplats and enjoy xbox exclusives on my one only. Either way, I hope they confirm some of this sooner than later because I'm 60% closer than the 0% I was to buying a one now.
what announcement were you really surprised and impressed by? Crackdown 3 has been rumored for awhile, same for forza horizon. Only really new announcements were halo remakes and halo 5 being pushed back to 2015.
It's more about when the games we knew about come out. I loved Halo 2 and the MP was excellent so wouldn't mind revisiting that in some 1080p glory. Also, just the fact Platinum would be developing an exclusive is huge to me. I loved Bayonetta and Metal Gear Rising.
@Life Wellsaid. State Of Decay MMO, Rares new games (new or old ips) Lift London's new cloud based games MS Japan Phantom Dust reboot. And as always great third party support. I know Titanfall's coming out in March but I believe MS said they have some indy games releasing in March as well. If they were true things would look great for X1.
Sony studios will just be vacationing in Hawaii while this happens. So Microsoft should own 2014,2015,2016 etc. /S -_-
LOL,yeah that's what I was thinking when he submitted that ridiculous comment & assumption,as if Sony or Nintendo for that matter wont release games in this year or the upcoming years. BUT,seeing as that comment comes from "lifeisgamesok" the MS fanboy,then it's understandable,lmao.
If it helps you sleep at night lifeisgamesok,yes MS will shower you with exclusives(excluding the fact that most of them are rehashes of popular MS IPs) this year and all the upcoming years and they will destroy Sony & Nintendo. Happy? hahaha,what a joke! xD
And these aint all the games. There are definitly more games in the pipeline from other japanese devs,western third party devs, rare,lionhead,lift etc. Phil said they have never had these many titles in development ever in their history.expect to see more announcements at e3.
All I want is Halo 2 MP updated to 1080p 60 FPS with dedicated servers. Make it happen MS!
A bunch of halo remakes, another crackdown, another forza, I don't get where all the excitement is. Pretty vanilla leaks/game lineup if you ask me.
Quantam Break looks pretty cool and Rememdy is a good developer while Sunset Overdrive looks like a different tone on the shooter (granted need to see more) but it's refreshing. Those along with Titanfall would make a great lineup imo this year (with Halo 2 MP as well...yes please). Put Halo 5 in 2015, Gears 4 in 2016. Oh, and Platinum games would develop an exclusive....enough said on that one. I'm sure they have some more surprises as well as leaks never get all of it out there. I'd still use my PS4 as my main sysstem but to say that the rumored xbox one lineup is weak or vanilla seems a little overzealous.
the leaks were vanilla - cboat hinted at the platinum japan exclusive over 2 months ago, forza and crackdown 3 were already rumored. Xbox one has a great games lineup for '14, looks to be better then ps4's depending on whether or not Uncharted releases this yr.
Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break, Halo 2 Anniversary, Fable Legends, Titanfall, Halo 5, Gears of War, Forza Horizon 2, Platnium Studios game and more to be announced... Weak line up... Umm, what?!
Pretty sure he was talking about the leaked stuff. You know, the NEW games. He even lists the games he's talking about. Most of what you mention isn't new.
Pretty vanilla leaks?
I think it's also the point that the lush supplied a few release windows also
Let's face it dose anyone really care!
You can bet that when the XB1 goes $20 cheaper than the PS4 all of this "$100 isn't much of a difference" will become "the PS4 is too expensive."
It would be funny if Sony made an upgrade program where you trade in a xb1 for a ps4 with camera.
I care. I think most people want established franchises to return with a new, next gen veneer. New ips are great too, but don't lose sight of what has made your past console successful.
Uh, all the rumors sound great, and like they have some validity, so looks like great things are brewing in the MS camp.
Even if its true I only want Gears so I can w8 on X1.
Why do people act like these rumors are mind blowing? An HD remake of a popular title.. a different colored/special edition console.. diskless nonsense.. mind blown!!
I've had both the original xbox and the xbox 360 but for the new gen I went with the PS4. I'm not bashing the upcoming lineup but come on....these games are last gen or even 2 gen ago. I get the Halo 2 anniversary release and that's fun good news but the other stuff is expected. It's like saying "we got Call of Duty 12" coming in 2015. Ohhhhhh really? Why even say it? We know another Forza, Crackdown, Gears is on the way. This is my problem with these "leaks".... Where is the NEW? This is the next gen with a better more powerful machine. Microsoft is doing what Nintindo does and just rehashing the same ole thing. The last Forza was a beautiful game to look at but with the best stuff behind a paywall made this a fair game at best. We should expect better out of the next? Unlikely to get better. Crackdown I can't speak on as I was never a fan. Halo 4 was great and no reason Halo 5 won't be. The last Gears was a total waste of money so no reason to expect better with a new one. This is Microsoft Studios were talking about and Microsoft just made this great new machine and what their doing at least so far is like having a Lamborghini and never taking it out of 2nd gear. IMO.
And yet when I read people talking about their Ps4's they're looking forward to Infamous, new Uncharteds, Killzone and Gran Tourismo. You need to understand that both MS and Sony know these titles are popular so produce them to make the money to pay for new IP's. Don't like them, then don't buy them, but don't assert this is in some way an MS problem when all games companies do it
I couldnt have said it any better myself.Hats off to you my good sir.
Chris12.....I'm guessing your post was a shot at mine..And that's ok because your right sony is doing the same with their games..nothing new the same ole redone games. I did compare Microsoft to doing the same with games as nintindo and failed to point out the same is being done by Sony Games........my bad thanks for pointing that out even if your post was not a shot at mine. Idk?..25XP pts to u.
