Microsoft’s Xbox Division head honcho was in the UK today, visiting studios working on Xbox One, and apparently he had a really great day.
I banjo not BT Rare!
Dang Phil's quick wasn't he at Halo Fest? Now he's in the UK? The real Flash right here. Such a teeease I wanna see it. Please be at E3 Rare.
He wasn't at Halofest. He was at Halo's launch in the UK :D Major Nelson was at Halofest.
Ooooohhh that explains it. Thanks for the clear up.
It will definitly be at E3. So far it seems MS is going to have so many titles to show. Scalebound, Rares ip, Gears, Crackdown, PD, Halo5, TR, QB and im certain there will be more surprises. I also think a new battletoads will be developed by the KI guys or some other devs same with a new BK game. Rares new game will be a new unique ip.
New could be cool--I liked several of the new IPs they worked on last gen. I wouldn't say no to something more familiar but new is also great as proven by a couple cult classics from first couple years last time around. Honestly I really want a platformer as it is still what I think of most with rare. Their old school shooters (n64) probably got played much more but their other games had more character IMO.
"Such a teeease I wanna see it" Is this excitement genuine? What are the chances that this won't be another Kinect game? The last Banjo game was a complete disappointment. Microsoft canceled games like Kameo 2 in order to have them develop for Kinect. Want a Conker game? "Make your own".
Your talking about a different time at rare thought. I think this new ip will be the start of Rare again as Phil has been working hard at getting the Xbox all about gaming again. If you look at the current exclusives the Xbox one has out and what is to come you can see the changes going on in the Xbox decision. Lets wait and see what happens but Microsoft are now doing what Sony did this time last gen and when their backs were against the wall they let the games do the talking. For me I'm liking what Phil has changed at Xbox and its starting to become harder and harder not to own more than one console imo which is great for gaming.
Disappointment to you maybe but I loved Nuts and Bolts
Nice. Seems Phil has been really busy with the halo uk launch and visiting xbox uk studios. Can't wait to see this rare game at E3. Hopefully it will be something unique. A mix of all their best ips.
Probably see it at E3 2015
Good to hear he is overseeing all projects Xbox future looks good. Can't wait to see some surprises at Video Game Awards.
Good guy Phil, doing a great job in restoring the Xbox reputation because damn was Mattrick garbage. I hope Rare can make a comeback, they were a awesome developer. I can't wait to see what they're working on.
I liked most of their non-Kinect games last gen but they were not anything too special either. It proved they are still a bit quirky and cool but nothing so outstanding that it competed with N64 days. I still have faith in them though and look forward to a reveal at some point.
Yeah I'll like to see Perfect Dark completely remade for the Xbox One tech, also Conker damn it!
Phil say no more just take my money already.
Battletoads. Trademark filed a few days ago
I keep on having an image of Cooper from Grabbed by the ghoulies in an Uncharted-like adventure with cameos (no pun intended) from other Rare characters. Or Conker in an Uncharted-like adventure! I know Battletoads has been registered but I wonder if that's a red herring. I never played the NES game but the look of it doesn't appeal to me. It's like pure early 90s cheese. Surely Killer Instinct satisifes beat em up fans enough? Now if you bring back Attic Attack that could be special!
Don't you ever talk down on Battletoads again.
A next gen Banjo game would be ideal, Banjo was amazing on n64 it would be good to see a new 3d adventure think how many fans will jump aboard a new Banjo
Banjo had his go for the time being. He's had 3 major Rare games in total. Maybe he could make a cameo in another game, such as a Conker's Bad Fur Day sequel.
mmmm,Phil Spencer seems to be focusing on the strength's the x1 has over sony's ps4. one of them is server power. Another is, making games that are lacking on ps4. A Fast pace Battletoads co op game sounds good to me. After all, current gen is lacking ninja hack and slack game hard. Heck, I need to get my ninja gaiden fix soon. Hurry up Sony!!! A good platformer game is definitely needed as well. Can't wait to see what RARE is cooking up for us. EDIT: hellblade will be coming out soon so I think MS are making Battletoads to compete. This sounds like the FH2 situation. Hellbalde will most likely be single player game with amazing graphics while Battletoads will be co op with above average graphics. smart move phil. Sounds to me they're going for game play to compete.
Hellblade is timed exclusive. So their creating this to compete with a game thats already coming to their platform? Troll smarter next time, you failed.
@disagree Check this out, Phil Spencer is a true leader. Yall not hearing me. The man is a true leader. Check this out...hellblade is a time exclusive right?? correct me if I'm wrong. Soon MS will have two hack n slash game out when the time exclusive deal runs out. They will have one game that is co op and another that is single player. Think about that for a moment. @OOMagnum You can call me anything you like troll, bastard, what ever you like buddy.
Thought about it....still sounds stupid. But your entitled to your thoughts.
@OOMagnum We're all entitle to our own opinion... That's what makes everyone unique. what's really stupid you don't know that.
I dont know that, but yet, I clearly stated that. Lol whatever floats your boat. How people like you have so many bubbles confounds me.
@OOMagnum How people like you have so many bubbles confounds me. its simple. Its called trollism/OR trollogic. Lets do the math here shall we. You have 127 Comments with 4 Ignored. So, lets say you make it to 7000 Comments...for each 150 comment you get 4 Ignored. That's about 5.7 Ignored on average. So, by my calculation that makes you a TROLL.
Nice it's good to see that MS isnt wasting Rare talent for crappy kinect games :D
Oh Phil you punster!
Wow, so they already have a demo up. Should be interesting to see what they're working on.
Rare is so under rated its almost criminal . some of their best and the generations best games were rare on 360 . can't wait to play whatever they are cooking up .
IN PHIL WE TRUST
