Phil Spencer, head of Xbox division and Microsoft Studios, took the stage at this afternoon's Windows 10 event wearing ... is that a Battletoads shirt? It is!
People are very observant. I just thought it was a regular T-shirt like you get from JC Pennys lol. I have a lot of those.
Day one buy & I want a t-shirt also
I knew it was Battletoads as soon as he stepped on the stage. It's obviously coming to XB1 from RARE.
It could be a new Rare game, but did you ever think that Phil is a gamer and possibly a Battletoads fan? I'm not saying he isn't teasing an announcement, I'm just saying don't get hyped up over something that could quite easily be nothing.
Under normal circumstances, yes, I would agree with you. But there's been a lot of talk about the Battletoads franchise recently. So this is certainly not just some coincidence.
Yeah thats true but as soon as Phil got on stage Craig Duncan of Rare posted a tweet complementing the T-shirt. I think it could be a very plausible sign of a new Battletoads Game.
@porkchop This is a happening thing not just hype Microsoft file a Trademark Renewal Nov. 10 2014 for Battletoads. Just as last E3 he sported a Crackdown shirt and that to was announced. So all have to wait until E3 for an annoucement. hope it's not a download I rather have a physical copy.
If not, we're getting trolled pretty hard. Or else, he just has a collection of cool T-shirts.
That would be the ultimate troll! And I would expect a loss of at least two bubbles for him doing that!
Man Xbox One gaming on PC, cross device multiplayer, and Battletoads Tshirt what else can I say...going to your PC and actually making a movie out of your gameplay.... Guys I was not expecting this type of news from the event or seeing them show it off for us. MS has just made it for all Xbox One owners something to feel great about. And NO fanboy is gonna ruin this for True gaming fans.. GO Xbox!! F...yeah!
Yeah I've been doing the same thing for a while now on share factory. At least now I can do something similar on my x1. Also owning a x1 does not make you anymore of a "true" gaming fan than the wii u, ps4 and pc.
I never said Xbox gamers are true gaming fans. This is great News for all gamers. Its just that on this site MS and Xbox gamers dont seem to get a fair shake at times. Today is day for them to be proud of Xbox! I have both console and if this were a Sony or Nintendo event I would be praising ir just like I am for Xbox. Dont try make it more than what it is. Again, Xbox had a great day. Now go play on your PS4 or Wii U and let me enjoy the moment.
Anyone know what happened with the returning beloved strategy franchise announcement?
Edited to say that it ended an hour ago. My bad.
Being a PS4 owner, I'll be jealous if Battletoads is an Xbox One exclusive. Good for Microsoft though. I still plan on buying an XO in another year or so.
If it's a new Battletoads game Microsoft needs to be hands off Rare, let them do their thing
i'm wearing a adidas shirt
Lol nobody remember MS trademark Battletoad last year
Reminds me of when Layden wore the Kratos shirt at the PSX.
Sony did something like that at PSX, so let's do it too. JK. @Lawson oh my bad. Forgive my ignorance.
Spencer has been doing the T-shirt thing for a while. He wore multiple shirts at e3 each time he had an announcement.
I believe Spencer is the guy who started this trend two e3s ago when mattrick was still in charge. And he did it last e3 as well, along with gamescom.
Funny how people talk about Battletoads like it was some awesome game. It was horrible. Maybe they can make it into something good.
Lol....I'm gonna assume it was too difficult for you. And thats why you dont like it. Won't be mad you wont be playing the new one...
The stupid difficulty surely is one of the reasons why it sucked. There's a reason why there hasn't been another game made since over 20 years ago.
The bike level in the first one (level 12) is impossible. In Battletoads in Battlemaniacs, I think it's level 4. Also impossible. I'd love to see a Battletoads / Double Dragon 2.
rare doesnt have the same people working as they once did.. I would love to see a battle toads comeback but it has to be good if im to buy xb1..
I saw twitter earlier and one of top trends was phil and battletoads. He's fashion trend setter lol. But OT: can't wait for this game.
