Looks like the gears are grinding at Microsoft, and the house of Xbox might be working on just another yet unknown “major gaming franchise."
Good guy Microsoft . Announcing every game they have planned for the next 5 years so you don't have to think about it.
Another?! Wow. Keep me coming MS. My guess is Crackdown, Left 4 Dead, Shenmue, Conkor, or Banjo unless it's a multiplatform going exclusive or an unannounced IP. @Ace So you're saying there won't be any game announcements E3? Prepare to be disappointed, my friend. Phil Spencer JUST got promoted, too. I know there're so many AAAs already coming to Xbox One that you couldn't possibly think they'd announce more, but this is MS, not Sony. They invested $1 billion+ in exclusives, something Sony couldn't afford to do.
Lol, you believe these PR buzzwords for real don't you? "1 billion into games" that will definitely not be used to buy timed exclusives and definitely isn't an inflated number /s "300,000 servers" that will definitely all be provisioned for Xbox. /s "cloud will make Xbone hardware 3 times as powerful" cause that's gonna happen /s Microsoft throws numbers at you, and you have no factual proof of them, but their history of marketing manipulating, but you still run with them. According to you guys from last gen (and I remember you guys legitimately saying this stuff) Sony couldn't afford to make a more powerful console than Microsoft. I guess Sony couldn't afford to buy Gaikai, couldn't afford to sell a more powerful machine at a lower cost, couldn't afford to invest in VR, couldn't afford to ACTUALLY have more exclusives. Yet all of these things happened. ---- Be excited for Xbone and its games, by all means, but when trying to compare Sony's focus on games historically to Microsoft's don't fail at it. PS4 has more games and always will. And yes, that's ANY kind of gaming experience, before you try and downplay anything that isn't AAA. Cause we know all AAA games are sterling quality. /s ----- Just noticed you mentioned SHENMUE. https://www.youtube.com/wat... haha, good luck with that on Xbone.
Glad to see all these games coming, best time to be a true gamer. Sunset overdrive, quantum break, the order, smash bros, mario kart, halo, gears, rime, etc, etc, etc. @george don't bother the sony fanboys just can't handle anything positive about xbox, so they have to downplay anything that might be good. Makes them feel more secure about their choice, meanwhile real gamers have both (or even all 3) with tons of great games incoming.
Lol the stupidity of your posts has become quite amusing by now. You definitely sound like an Xbox fanboy
@Digital, i know Microsoft has been the bad guy lately, but they do have quite a few exclusives released and lined up, and i can see that 1Billion probably is accurate if you look at how much games cost to make these days
Xbox has all the best franchises, you can pass up on everything else out there. Lol, Kinect Adventures sold more copies than the entire series Uncharted 1,2,and 3.
@alexkoepp Oh yes, all those people are still playing kinect adventures to this day.......
Seriously, why ridicule yourself with such moronic comments every time? Do you have mental deficiencies? Are you being molested by someone? Are you depressed? Is your console causing you insecurities and delusion? Just stop, please.
georgenoob your name fits you well.
Sony doesn't need to invest 1 billion in exclusives when they 13 teams working in multiple projects which 75% of them are not announced + the devs have shown what they are capable of and have true talent which is something MS desperately needs more of
@georgenoob "I know there're so many AAAs already coming to Xbox One that you couldn't possibly think they'd announce more, but this is MS, not Sony. They invested $1 billion+ in exclusives, something Sony couldn't afford to do. " so what you are saying is MS is spending $1 Billions on games and yet they still dont have anywhere near as many games coming out for there system compared to the ps4 which has way more coming out for it even though sony has allot less money wow sony really know what they are doing. also sony dont waste money on timed exclusives as they dont need too reason there machine is better simple as that.
MSFT is bringing the GAMES!!! They are working on a ton of projects right now, putting that 1 BILLION dollars to use. E3 is gonna be awesome.
@ GeorgeNOOB Sony doesn't need 1 billion to buy exclusives, they make their own from the studios they have invested in. The games they make are top notch, with variety, taking the medium forward through growth... All you do is defend MS and believe all the BS marketing speak
Everyone keeps talking about the billion invested in games, but seems to not realize that statement was made ages ago, since then they have bought gears from epic, bought TitanFall exclusivity, paid for other 3rd party devs to make exclusives, rise, DR3, quantum break, and sunset overdrive come to mind. I'm not saying any of these are bad moves, I'm simply stating that a lot of that money is probably gone already. A new lost Odeyssey would be great though, the first was one of my favorite games last gen, and a really solid RPG.
wow i guess running 10 + studios cost less than 100000 a piece per year. you sound like you can't do basic math
MS have 22 studios (Several of which have multiple teams now) so that arguement about sony not needing to invest because they have 13 studios is dumb. MS have more and they've been hiring top talent for two years now. I'm not saying they are going to release 22 games that are as good as Uncharted 2 but if you are a Sony fanboy and you're downplaying MS first parties then you're going to be disappointed. Spencer and Harrison are a dream team for MS when it comes to managing MGS
@noob The stupidity that flows out of your mouth is reaching new heights. I don't even think you believe what you say. YOUR becoming something WORSE than a fanboy, you've become a "JOKE".
I hope that 1 billion doesn't include advertising. If so they ate up at least a quarter of it on Titanfall. TV spots aren't cheap.
Left 4 Dead= Valve owns the IP. Shenmue= developers stated it's very unlikely going to happen. Conker= Very much doubt it, Rare haven't done any major AAA titles for a very long time. Banjo= Maybe Crackdown= we know this is in the pipeline. The 1 Billion $ investment, might be just in timed exclusives, we already know about The Division exclusivity deal for instance. Best just wait and see being honest, I think MS will have a lot to show at E3.
@Domination 22 Microsoft Studios?????? Just to remind you: First Party Microsoft Studios: 343 Industries Turn 10 Lionhead Rare Wingnut Interactive Big Park Sony's First Party Studios: SCE Japan Studio (which has 4 separated teams) Polyphony Digital Naughty Dog Sucker Punch Evolution Sucker Punch Guerilla Games (and Guerilla Cambridge) Media Molecule [XDev (works with external developers)] SCE Bend SCE London SCE Santa Monica SCE Foster City SCE San Diego
"Good guy Microsoft . Announcing every game they have planned for the next 5 years so you don't have to think about it." Sony and Nintendo do that... sometimes they announce games years before release.
lol. Does Alan Wake ring a bell? Revealed at the same E3 as Killzone 2(TWO). Guess which game came out first. Remember "Hobo Sam" Splinter Cell Conviction. Etc. etc.
Bubbled down for trolling, your welcome. I for one think it's the next Crackdown, fingers crossed.
Microsoft rarely ever "makes" any games. All they do is hunt for other companies games and just pay them off to get exclusivity. Microsoft has very little talent to draw from.
Is that why Microsoft exclusives sell better than Sony exclusives?
@ Mystogan Oh that's right. all those Microsoft exclusives that sell better. Like... Halo, and .... Gears... and .... um.... ummmm. That's about it.
Well all Sony does is wait until someone else has the balls to put out a feature that everyone loves and then rip it off, stick it on their console. Then tell everyone that they were looking into this tech years before... and Sony fanboys believe this, lol Oh and by the way Sony pays developers for exclusivity to their console. (Others make it, Playstation rips it, Sony fanboys praise it!!)
@XXEcxacutionerxx What does this have to do with games?? I mean youre right I think Microsoft was very innovative with kinect play games only with a camera was something never seen befo.. Oh wait I get an phone call:" Yeah?...ah...Eyetoy?...On PlayStation 2?...Long before Kinect?..Okay thx, bye". Ugh, nevermind, forget what I said about kinect.
buddy u are the funniest guy in here,such a ***hole u are.
Anything of the Rare franchised would be cool. Well so long as they are developed by Rare.
This just shows the sickness that is rife throughout N4G. A positive story about Xbox and then out pop the pathetic fanboys to make a mockery of such story. I was told by a few friends on here that this is common practice for N4G and not to worry about it. They were told the MODS were actively looking to remove the bubble system to prevent such fanboys from ruining the site. However I believe they were spun this yarn about a year ago. Nothing has changed quite clearly. Such a shame as this site has some fantastic people on it.
as a gamer I say let Microsoft make a new IP they could use it since they don't have many known IP's like competitors Sony & Nintendo have. Besides strong competition amongst competitors brings out the best in all the companies. In fact this is why I stopped being a fanboy cause I found it to be senseless and stupid. Just game on and enjoy yourselves cause at the end of the day we all just wanna play video games.
Keep the great games coming Microsoft Eden Falls being revived from being a survival game that Lionhead started Unannounced game from 343 Classic game or games from Rare Multiple games from Press Play Whatever game the newly named studio LXP is working on With the obvious showings Quantum Break, Halo 5, Sunset Overdrive, D4, Halo 2, Forza Horizon 2, Fable Legends I hope E3 gets here fast
It's going to be a good E3.
Dont forget the new ip from lionhead, and undeadlabs. Xbox going hard on games this gen. E3 is going to be huge for microsoft. I have a huge feeling that Crackdown 3 will be announced at E3.
Looks like MS is going to be bringing a lot. E3 should be epic for all parties.
@Raptor But at top you just completely derailed just about everything Xbox. Then you try, I repeat try to come as sensible or your "looking forward" to MS conference in this comment. I know George is one of the worst Xbox fanboys but as soon as he mentioned Sony you come with an entire comment that mirrors Georges last paragraph, Sony style. Then you attempt to give some even ground comment in attempt to express some excitement to Xbox. Come on man. Your reaction to Georges comment shows how a fanboy deals with another fanboy.
@ Angelic I never denied MS doesn't have a lot, but when someone is delusional about how a company known for providing a lot of games, won't provide a lot of games by comparison, when we already know Sony has more games in development is ridiculous, and I was confronting his suggestion that Sony will have less. I came with facts, he didn't. I'm not delusional to think MS won't have a really good E3, when they had quite a lot of games last year, and have been talking it up. Xbox fanboys however, seem to think that because Phil Spencer is doing a lot of talking to mend expectations, that means "MS is going to destroy Sony". I'm also not delusional enough to believe any number that comes from the mouth of Microsoft PR, particularly not after the past few months. I think any sensible gamer would show some kind of apprehension. Anyway, I'm in the habit of balancing inaccuracies out. And I'll be honest, show me some Quantum Break MS. show it to me.
The hypocrisy continues... You have made it very clear you dislike MS and the Xbox One, and downplay/derail anything positive said about them or the X1... even subjective opinions toward the console or MS... which in most cases you have no right to, you don't have to agree with them but you don't have to run down/lower other peoples opinion either.
"We already know sony has more games in development" So you have seen everything Microsoft and Sony is working on? You some kind of insider?
@draptor Angelice is right. You are quick to attack MS and every comment made by every xbx fan. George and a few others get carried away at times and make really fanboyish comments but the way you deal with them in your comments tells a lot about the kind of gamer you are too. Just as Angelice said, your first comment above (reply to george) already tells everyone what you think about MS and the xbox one and so your reply to lifesagames comes off as a lie.. imo you dont care one bit about the console or seem to want anything to do with it.
All 3 will come forth guns Ablazing at E3.
Why was he disagreed with? just because he is excited for Microsoft's E3? i'm sure Sony will do well at E3 as well so unless you have an insecure hatred for MS i don't see why he was disagreed with
E3 is going to be one hell of a ride.
Looks like ms is really upgrading it's 1st party camp (great). Definitely looking forward to E3!!! It's going to be a very expensive yr for me! So much to look into for my consoles......
This...isnt....news.. That's like rm saying, Nintendo will make another Zelda! Duh. Give it a rest dualshockers. Your going on my ad block list until you decide to have some quality control.
Talking about quality control Go to N4G for games news Lmao
bubble up x10
So will you say that when Sony announces it's next project? @josephayal What Xbox? Haven't you been caught lying about having an Xbox before?
Good News, my Xbox one has been collecting dust for weeks now
Well I would say its time to start cleaning the house. It makes you feel better when you do. :)
Lol you just trolled N4g biggest troll.
Really can't wait for E3. So much is going to be announced.
Bubz up...The voice of reason. I'm sure all three have great things planned for E3. Either way it's going to be a win for all gamer's platforms of preference.
Right now, it's all just hype. When MS shows up to the show with more than just promises, pomp, and flair, then I'll take it seriously. Until then, meh.
MS: Please be excited!
Forget all the bs talk, show something.
Why when e3 is 7 weeks away .
Keep it coming MS and I may consider changing my purchase plans from a PS4 to a Xbox One. Certainly can't go wrong ether way.
Good for them. E3 is going to be interesting.
Cool, but three more days till Child of Light!
Microsoft: we are working on new games. N4g:yea right your just pocketing money. Sony: we are not working on any new games. N4g: that's OK Sony! Don't worry about it! We love you!
I don't really understand your comment. But anyway, that's great that Microsoft is working on new games. But isn't that what they're supposed to do?
That is called "THE SONY FANBOY"
That's a far fetched thing to assume. I think the general consensus you pointed out shows that MSFT has to prove a lot more than Sony does at this point. After all, they did (MSFT) proclaim that "We will kill Sony at E3" in 2013. The gaming community knows how that turned out. So far there has been an ensuing PR image struggle for MSFT since the Xbox One was unveiled. http://n4g.com/news/1268183...
Were you get Sony isn't working on new games, they have plenty of studios with unannounced games. At this point XB1 and PS4 are going to have lots of games to show at E3. Even Nintendo should be coming with a good amount of games for E3 7 weeks from now, no matter what system you own, there should be plenty of games to look forward to going into the end of the year and 2015
Guys this was a joke. Settle down
MS seems to be realizing their mistakes last gen which is good.
I am amazed by the sudden swing in favour of the Xbox on this site. Phil talked about drm and it's advantages like the other executives all hated him. Asked to mention games more he is the Xbox national hero. It is great PR move by Microsoft a change in perception and people are eating out of their hands again. I just hope Elop approves of all him ideas.
