It does actually look like it is going to be a big title for the Xbox One. Can't wait to see more.

Same here Naruto, I'm really interested how this plays out!

So the two of you are the same person.

@insomnia_84 below

The PS3 was also Far from perfect

Lack of upscaling: Simply put, if your HDTV does 1080i but not 720p, then expect to play your games in 480p, as the PS3 will not upscale the graphics to 1080i. Bummer.
Overheating: a lot of retailers are reporting test boxes overheating. We'll chalk this up to the semi-airtight plastic enclosure until more users get to use the console in the open.
Backwards-compatibility: Several PSOne/PS2 games don't work correctly with the PS3 yet; this should be remedied with upcoming System Updates.

Not to talk about the price. That was outrageous..... Luckily they learnt the lesson...

What else would he say: "it looks terrible"?

And lol at this being big. I think the console warriors want it to be big, that doesn't meant that it will be. Nothing from Platinum has ever been big, except for MGSR, and that's because it had the Metal Gear IP associated with it.

XiNarutoUzumaki1123d ago

I'd rather remain optimistic. I got a great vibe from the E3 trailers. And, Platinum Games make great games with Rich gameplay.

Lol.. Why you hating bro? Naughty dog, bungie, rockstar all started out small now see where they are. ND jumped from Jax to Uc to tlou&Who would believe the creators of oni on ps2 would later create Halo or did you think the creators of omikron on dc would later create a game as big as heavy rain? You haven't seen this game,you have no idea what it is about or how it will turn out and besides the higher the budget the bigger the game is likely to be. So stop downplaying this.

“What else would he say: "it looks terrible"?”

Platinum is a highly acclaimed dev. They are so good even hideo wants them to make a sequel to mgsr&nintendo is patnering with them.(Vanquish, bayonetta,mgsr,viewtiful joe)Haven't seen any game they've made that plays or looks bad and its most likely that this game looks and plays great... would you prefer he lied about it? Ms is funding the title&its using UE4 too,so most likely it looks awesome and is going to be big.

I think you ps ninjas jus hate on anything x1. Why come here with negativity?

strangeaeon1123d ago

Did you know that being hateful and negative can lead to cancer? The more you know...

Ihatetrolls761122d ago

Keep trolling and downplaying sonypony

Dontworrybhappy1122d ago

Stop wanting games to fail. Just makes you look pathetic.

Kenshin_BATT0USAI1122d ago

I disagree on whether this will be big or not because there really is no way to know. It could easily blow up into something amazing.

That being said, this doesn't seem news worthy. The head of MS studios wouldn't say anything but positive about.

It would be like Shu saying Lair was a great game, he would obviously say that despite lair having the worst controls ever.

Yeah, it does seem reqlly interesting to have Dragon fighting along side you. Maybe they can accomplish what Lair failed to accomplish initially.

dirkdady1122d ago (Edited 1122d ago )

The dragon doesn't fight alongside you in Lair you are riding it and don't think there was much expectation of the game. Lets face it, it was a rushed launch title.

What's even more of a let down was Crimson Dragon for Xbox One. After working on it for years on the Xbox 360 before porting it to X1. If you want to talk about a let down what a disappointment of a game that was, after looking forward to the spiritual successor to Panzar with the same director I couldn't believe how they ruined the game.

telekineticmantis1122d ago

I dont think you know what youre talking about, Lair was highly anticipated from it‘s first trailer, the game looked epic, before it launched and was epic after launch, just a poor control scheme. Factor 5 was working on the concept of that game before PS3 360 was even a whisper. YouTube cant explain everything about a game, I watched those e3's.

Crimson dragon wasalmost completely on rails, so scalebound has a good opportunity, to get ground and air right, even though Lair was better with patches, and the ground combat was the best in the genre(unless you really like Drakengard 3).

Clown_Syndr0me1122d ago


Lair was massively hyped. It was meant to be amazing..

lelo1123d ago

I like Platinum Games. I expect this to be good.

thecowsaysmoo1123d ago

ok, why are you always the first one to comment?

TruthInsider 1122d ago

Wow! Microsoft saying a game on Xbox looks great.
Just like 792p 30-60fps with massive screen tearing Titanfall, you know, that game that would revolutionise the fps genre?
You do! That game that would turn Xbones sales figures around and people would be playing for years.
The one that PS4 owners would be so jealous of, the one which would get a resolution boost to 900p soon after launch?

Yes that's right, TitanicFail with no one online.

So, tell us more sbout these great games Microsoft...
