Spencer: Exclusives Are Critical To Platform Success, More Coming On Xbox One, Support For KI & More

Microsoft's Studios Boss Phil Spencer has just shared some interesting information via Twitter on Killer Instinct, whether or not Xbox One will get more exclusives like Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, Support for Killer Instinct, E3 2014 and many more.

The story is too old to be commented.

The X1 with the higher price, more then ever is going to need exclusives.

Abash1247d ago (Edited 1247d ago )

If exclusives are so important to MS, why have we received so little updates from all the ones announced nearly a year ago? Weren't we suppose to get "15 exclusives in the first 12 months" of the Xbox One?

4logpc1247d ago

Forza 5
Killer Instinct
Dead Rising 3
Crimison Dragon
Peggle 2
PVZ garden warfare
POwerstar Golf

I would say they are on track for 15 in the first 12 months.

DawnOfDon1247d ago


and indies so yea 15 will be hit.

Didn't Sony say they had 30?

ThePope1247d ago

That's what E3 is for. Every year the studios go on virtual radio silence until June.

SaffronCurse1247d ago

Dead Rising3-Paid

So you have 4 games on that list that are likely to go onto other consoles in the near future.

Death1247d ago

When did it become a bad thing to have third party exclusives? Having solid first and third party exclusives is actually pretty nice. Throw in third party multiplatform support and it sounds like a great combination.

DawnOfDon1247d ago


only one that will got to the PS4 is Titanfall

BlackTar1871247d ago

Peggle 2 won't come to ps4?


Talking to Dawn

Unless you have a typo and meant the only one the Won't go to ps4 is Titanfall. Then i agree

Crimson Dragon
Dead Rising 3
Forza 5
Killer Instinct
Powerstar Golf

Not exclusive:

Halo Spartan Assault (also on the PC, 360, and Windows Phone and Tablets)

Max: The Curse of Brotherhood (timed: also on 360 and PC will be released next month)

Peggle 2 (timed: xbox on 360 in May and other platforms at a later date)

PVZ garden warfare (timed: also on 360 and other platforms at a later date)

Titanfall (also on PC and will be on 360 next week)

Odd that Microsoft has somehow convinced some people the bone is such an exclusives power house with so little exclusive content.

Max the brother hood,lococycle,Kinect sport rivals in a week

Blaze9291247d ago


how can someone with so many bubbles be so, wrong?

BABYLEG1247d ago (Edited 1247d ago )

Lol @ Sony fanboys saying Ms has no exclusives

lol @ Sony fanboys thinking Indies are triple a titles now

I find it funny people call MS exclusive games, not exclusives. I find it funny how people get satisfaction in saying "max is coming on PC in a week so hah, its not exclusive"

get a life

TheRedButterfly1247d ago (Edited 1247d ago )

Dude, they're already at 9 (7 if you exclude timed exclusives(6 if you also exclude Titanfall)) and the console has only been out for 1/3rd of the 12 month window… Shut your hole. E3 ring a bell? How about TGS?

- _ - Seriously bro, the Xbox One has been out for 4 months as of Saturday. You've got another 8 months before you can bitch about a "lack of exclusives" or whatever.

badz1491247d ago

it's even funnier that people forget to mention Fighter Within. what was it then? a forgotten turd?

I want to see some Sunset Overdrive gameplay. Pretty much banking on it. Also would love to see a demo of the Quantum Break destruction engine. Crackdown would be nice, though I doubt we'll see it as soon as E3. Forza Horizons 2 seems likely. Desperately want to see some Halo 5 gameplay, preferably multiplayer. Also hoping to see Class 4 from Undead Labs, though I'm doubtful.

Then, some newly announced exclusives would be nice.

As far as multiplats, I want to see Battlefront, The Division, Witcher 3, and a whole crapload of Destiny, including the competitive multiplayer. Though Bungie has a tendency to slow-drip information about their games right up until release. I want to see the new COD, and I want to see a revival of Skate, SSX, Fight Night, next-gen NHL game (get busy, EA...). MOST OF ALL! I want Ubisoft to re-release Ranbow Six 3 for next gen consoles, since it seems like they will be sitting on Patriots for the next 20 years. Would rather have R63 than another iteration in the series. Other things I'm excited for from UBI: Splinter Cell, F2P Ghost Recon for next-gen consoles, Farcry. (get busy UBI...)

If Planetside 2 hasn't released by then, I want a release date. Been waiting long enough. Tick tock... Also would really like to see Sony announce a lot more in the realm of competitive-multiplayer AAA retail exclusives. A good long look at H-hour would be a good start. Was looking a little janky last time we got to see it. Also, eagerly awaiting Cell Damage =D

A LOT to look forward to. Plus, obviously, announcements that it's impossible to accurately speculate on.

Ausbo1247d ago

Amen brother. I agree with everything you just said.

shivvy241247d ago

Dude if sunset overdrive turns out good, im gonna get an x1 !

gamer78041247d ago

Actually you can get an xb1 for 450 that comes with a 60$ game


At that price no reason not to get it! Titanfall is addicting....

nerdman671247d ago

That particular deal is a steal

elsuperamigo1247d ago

We.know.from past experiences (360) which platform have the exclusives the.xbone will be.the.same old story.from the.360 first 2-3 years of exclusives then abandoning the.console, so we can tell who.will win.on the exclusives side again

DoubleM701247d ago

Your going to be sadly mistaken. Phil already stated they are going to follow the blue Print Sony laid out with First Party exclusives. Just remember Sony is the one that is cutting the fat. Lead designers and Employees getting fired.

Dannyh1247d ago

So if people don't count exclusives because a game is on Xbox 360 that means ps4 has not one single exclusive because you can play every game on vita

mkis0071247d ago

I see what you were trying to do, but you still need it on ps4 to play it on the vita.

cellur1111247d ago

This is the stupidest thing ive heard all day.

Underworld1247d ago

No, you still need a PS4 to play them on your Vita. They're not released on Vita, you can just play them on it. There's a difference.

Dannyh1247d ago

Ya I get what your saying. To me excusive means tied to the brand not the system.

badz1491247d ago

LOL suddenly the 360 can remote play with the Xbone now?

Automatic791247d ago

I am excited to see more on Xbox One titles, specifically Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, D4, Below and Halo 5.

Third Party titles I want to see are Batman Arkham knight, The Evil Within, Alien Isolation, Destiny and Evolve.

Note: Can't wait to see what MS has in store for 2015.

Illusive_Man1247d ago

Xbox One is currently $10 cheaper than a comparable PS4 plus Infamous. Walmart still has them for $450.

aceitman1247d ago

my friend works at walmart , he was told the price will stay that way until they lower the large stock that they have because its not selling like they wanted to ( and that's what his boss straight up told him . so it all depends on how fast or slow they sell that the price will stay that way.

Back-to-Back1247d ago

Exclusives Are Critical To Platform Success

-Yet 360 had one the smallest exclusive library of games when compared to Sony and Nintendo.

otherZinc1247d ago
