More Signs That Big Xbox One Leak Was Real

Some rumors are very, very fake. Others turn out to be true—and today's Sunset Overdrive news adds yet more credence to a major Xbox leak from January that predicted a number of still-unannounced titles, including a remake of Halo 2 and a sequel to Forza Horizon.

The story is too old to be commented.

"Halo 3 Port
Halo 4 Port
Halo 5

In the span of one year." - Is this actually plausible? It's the one thing in the leak I don't feel will happen.

The only things that have been wrong so far is additional countries launches. The TF XB1 was half wrong with the design not making it to retail that was also one thing Mort disagreed on but said he heard the same things. Take that want you will.

"White Console plus Sunset Overdrive and a fancy ass controller in October" - This will do well and be a system seller I feel.

As for Halo 4 and 3 I thought they were to be just the same game just playable on Xbone. Which would make sense or the Halo 2 Anniversary would not really stand out.

@mikeslemonade

what the hell are you going on about?

I was just thinking they were probably going to be like Xbox originals on 360 and what better way to start that then with the biggest IP they have. I think it is very possible MS announces something along these lines at E3 especially with the emulation rumors and there focus on digital downloads. If so Lost Odyssey and Tales of Vesperia better get on the store.

IT is not like I said Halo 4,3,2 are going to make the Xbone have the best software line up or something. FYI I dont care about your little fanboy war I play games not sales.

@Evilsnuggle

How can a company have the "greatest E3 of all time", with a whole mess of ports, and like 1-2 new IPs? I mean, they aren't even sequels.

gcolley1313d ago

@ Evilsnuggle - you lost bro?

DiRtY1313d ago

The Division
CoD AW

All of these titles were rumored (I don't believe it btw), but you can't spin this in a bad lineup. You just can't.

TheGrimReaper1313d ago

@dirty:
I have to agree, if this list is true MS will have a great E3!
There is no way denying this!

If both lists are true (there are things which seem exaggerated so I don't believe it ;)) this will be a great E3 for everyone!

If you have a PS4, be happy!
If you have a Xbox One, be happy!

If you have money and time enough for both, be happy!

I'd say this E3 will be really close between Sony and MS (and if Zelda looks good Ninty will have a good E3 too xD).

Well now there's a huge PS4 leak also. I hope that's true also.

zeuanimals1313d ago

I hope both leaks are false, even though they're both good, and I want the real things to be even better.

Always want better, but expect less... I guess.

bleedsoe9mm1313d ago (Edited 1313d ago )

@zeuanimals both rumours are pretty awesome don't know if reality will get even better than those leaks

christocolus1313d ago (Edited 1313d ago )

@kayant

No way all those halo games will be released within a year except ms surprises us all by announcing backward compatibility or a halo complete box set made for xbox one comprising halo1 to halo4 .

I also guess a lot of things would have changed since that leak was made back in january but we will know in about 5weeks though.

whybag1313d ago

I could see them releasing a box of Halo games as a "legacy" or "complete"(ish) set, good way to get the newer console owners into the back catalog.

Selling them individually would be annoying though.

Prime1571313d ago

Whybag, I'd live a collection. Include 1, 2, and 3 remade and sold...

I'm scared of annual, though...

zeuanimals1313d ago

Porting Halo 4 will be useless since everyone's gonna be on Halo 3.

mhunterjr1313d ago

I'd be on halo2 myself... Best MP maps ever...

Negative771313d ago

Not true at all. Halo 4 had a lot of good things going for it. Some very cool maps especially.

MajorGecko1313d ago

please halo 4 had nothing like waterworks on halo 2 :)

hellzsupernova1313d ago

Nope the console was 100% real but too expensive for Microsoft to go ahead with.

SilentDarknezzz1313d ago

Halo 3 and 4 ports probably won't happen. Most likely he purposely leaked some false information here and there to cover his own ass. Wouldn't want a lawsuit on his hands.

imt5581313d ago

Well, Xbone Titanfall theme didn't came.

Xbone W/O optical drive DENIED by MS itself :

http://www.slashgear.com/ch...

Some rumors are correct, some not.

LAWSON721313d ago (Edited 1313d ago )

TF bundle was actually very much legit but do to costs production was canceled. The TF team did a boxing and everything. Xbone optical drive may have been a possibility as well back in Jan, but could have been cancelled for obvious reasons such as the system still does not feature pre installs for launch games and the idea really was not that great to begin with.

Honestly I think alot of these leaks were on the drawing board with potential to happen. Like I bet white Xbone will not happen due to the same reasons as the TF bundle at least while production costs are pretty high

The fact this guy knew exactly what this trailer had in it months ago, he clearly knew about a alot of what was going on at MS at the time of his leak

imt5581313d ago

Yes, i know about Titanfall Xbone situation before. Nevertheless, Xbone TF theme didn't came.

whybag1313d ago

But the TF theme was REAL. Even if it didn't go into production, its existence was legit, and that makes the insider leak legit in my eyes.

isthe1313d ago

Wow, guess Microsoft has a leak. I feel it's probably just them trying to create more attention for their games.

gcolley1313d ago

I doubt it, it takes the steam out of their E3 if everything is leaked before hand. E3 is about maximum impact, there is no point even turning up if you are going to leak it deliberately beforehand.

WeAreLegion1313d ago (Edited 1313d ago )

Halo 2 is inevitable and I, for one, am happy about it.

I'd love a Forza Horizon 2, but why would they make it? The first one sold quite poorly. It's my favorite in the series, but it doesn't make business sense.

cfc781313d ago

Roughly 1.70 mill sold as of now let's hope they take a chance on it i'd love to see a Forza Horizon 2.

mhunterjr1313d ago

There's no time like the beginning of a console gen to push obscure IPs. Horizon never got the marketing push other MS racers had gotten, but nows as good a time as any to change that.

WeAreLegion1313d ago

Good point! Bubble for "well said".

Codey471313d ago

I could understand if this were 12 years ago...but this is the day of the Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, The Blog and the Vlog.

Developers "Kickstarters" don't have 5 Million pound/dollar marketing campaigns...they always generate pretty good interest.

mhunterjr1313d ago

@codey47

Define "always generating pretty good interest"

Horizon sold 1.2 million copy's , and is considered just a mild success, given the development costs.

Your typical indie game developer would be happy to sell 100k units. A 1st party title can't settle for indie type marketing campaigns.

Codey471313d ago (Edited 1313d ago )

My point is

Sony had terrible marketing until 2012 (Apart from the Kevin Butler "ads". Sony's best attempt at marketing yet IMO) But that didn't stop the PS3 selling multi millions prior to the new marketing agency.

IMO a well established franchise such as Forza doesn't need marketing it'll sell itself up to a certain point.

I think the huge deviation of Forza Horizon probably didn't bode well with the "Hardcore race sim fanatic"
Tbh Forza Horizon was a mismatch of Forza, Codemasters DiRT and Burnout/Need for speed (Recent iterations)

Personally I would love to see Devs/Publishers sink money into the product I'm interested in, as opposed to Millions of £$'s for a 30 second advert to titillate the casuals.

vishant1011313d ago

forza horizon is quite cheap to make however as assets are just used from the mainline forza series, selling 1 million would have broken even for that game.

mhunterjr1313d ago (Edited 1313d ago )

Define 'quite cheap'. Lots of games share assets (sequels for sample), that doesn't mean development costs aren't high. Besides, companies exist to make a profit, not break even.

Forza horizons has systems in place that aren't present in Forza Motorsport, including a day/night cycle, a different physics model, and an open road map.

killzone6191313d ago

who wouldnt be happy about halo 2 returning? the multiplayer was amazing.

hopefully its running on dedicated servers!
