Microsoft could create TV shows based on any number of the intellectual property it owns, including Gears of War and Forza.
OMG, Tv series based on Age of Mythology and Gears would be so awesome.
Yeah but a Forza one? Lol. Maybe the drivers create infinite number of ghosts that take over the world and replicate their driving antics all over. Plot twist: women still struggle to parallel park in the end.
"Plot twist: women still struggle to parallel park in the end." Lmao. i really dont know what to make of a forza tv series, may be it will be like top gear.
Gears? Yeah, probably. There's some pretty good source material from the books that they could use. Forza? Lol wut. @christocolus "Plot twist: women still struggle to parallel park in the end."" Lmao! Bubble+
I guess you guys haven't heard of this franchise called Fast and Furious. Throw in some hunk, a hot babe, some sport cars and a ridiculous plot and BAM, FORZA the Show!
Gears of war could make a great show/movie.
They'd have to hire in some hefty actors. But I could see that working.
That was my thought at first as well, then I thought about it a bit more and: Most of the characters are normal size, in big armor, marcus, cole, dom and tai are really the only ones that are hulking. Baird, dizzy, the carmine brothers, all the females, col hoffman, etc, etc, etc are all pretty normal.
I would love to see a weekly contest where if you win, you get your gamer tag listed in the show or on the credits somewhere. They could even Skype to you. There's lots of potential here. It could take esports to the next level.
You know what? I'm not mad at this idea.
I'm not sure how feasible Gears of War is, financially. Decent CGI would be too expensive for a show, I would think. Maybe a mini series? Practical effects would be WAY too expensive. I know that. Lol. Still, I love the Gears lore and would love to see more of it.
TV shows tend to have a low budget and I would rather they leave the franchises alone than have crappy TV shows based on them. I guess we will see how this Halo TV show will be and if it can be done.
This will not end well as this thread will be troll with MS is about TV, TV, TV soon. Pierce, what have you done? Love love to see a cheap Gears of War TV show. Even if it is low budget with a bunch of B cheese, would love to see more into the universe of that series.
So. Let me get this right. The Xbox One IS a media machine first and games machine second. I knew it all along. They should use the money they are wasting on tv integration and make new games.
PS4 is also getiing TV shows as well, so is that system also a media machine first and games machine second, by your definition? Sony pulls a Netflix, will offer exclusive TV shows for PS4 http://bgr.com/2014/03/20/s...
Yeah. This generation is forgetting about gamers. Happy I have more than one machine. When I want to play a game for gamers I will just turn on my WiiU. Cant wait for Mario Kart
Ouch! Don't do that Nolimit. Sony told them that their machine is a gaming machime first so sony fanboys automatically believe its true. Sony is definitely smarter than MS. MS likes to tell their users what they plan to do with their machine. Sony tells their fanboys what they want to hear then implement everything MS is doing quietly. it truly is a brilliant strategy.
Yet again, the Xbox faithful abandoning all logic and reason. Sony is a television and film company, as well as a gaming company. They produce content outside of gaming. PlayStation is first and foremost a gaming company, and it doesn't take resources inside of the PlayStation division to produce television shows and make a deal to air them exclusively on a gaming console they are looking at being successful. It's ridiculous that you're trying to compare both, as if Microsoft didn't establish their console as a multimedia box that also plays games, where the TV functionally was roughly 50% of their focus. Microsoft has opened a ton of television studios to create content exclusively for their console. PS4 was revealed as a gaming console. Game developers helped craft it. Games and gamers are their laser-focus. Nothing has proven otherwise. Deals for exclusively produced content proves nothing of what you're trying to indicate. ----- "MS likes to tell their users what they plan to do with their machine. Sony tells their fanboys what they want to hear" If this wasn't so ironic, i'd give it the time of day for an actual response.
LOL @ XboxFun Just the other day Phil said that the "XB1 is first and foremost a game console." http://n4g.com/news/1487197... My question to you is, do you automatically believe it's true? And is Phil just telling you what you want to hear? Or is he just telling his users what they plan to do with their machine? Very tough questions for you to answer without either sounding like a hypocrite or admitting that MS is also just "telling you what you want to hear." Ouch! Indeed! A truly brilliant strategy on my part./s
A forza show resembling Top Gear would be awesome.
That's exactly what I'm imagining, they could have different kinds of segments, like one showing what new in the racing scene, top 10 racing moments of the week/month, a segment like Heavy Metal Affliction on the forza site where they showcase people's real cars.
I'm up for games to video if the quality is there,the one they did with ghost recon alpha even though it wasn't a tv show i thought was realy good if theyr'e along those lines im all for it.(link below for anyone that never watched it) http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Vin Diesel and Ving Rhames probably be cast in a gears movie...I can totally see it..
What about Dwayne Johnson and Dave Bautista?
Yup they fit that gears of war look...
gears of war sounds cool, but forza? most boring game ip to make a show from ever. it'd be exactly like any other racing or car show, except the title
If you've only ever played the gears of war games you probably disagree but if you've read the books or comics you would defiantly agree.
And Microsoft could buy everyone a house, doesn't mean it will happen.
I'd rather they focus on games tbh.
TV shows?? Really?? And you guys are honestly happy with this?? Wow.
Gears would be cool as a show. Could see Forza being like that show where people train to be real drivers through Gran Turismio.
Crimson Skies series with an Indiana Jones vibe would be awesome. How about Mechassualt series or Banjo Kazzoie for kids
