According to insider shinobi602, Crackdown 3 is coming along fine. There still issues, but there's no risk of cancellation
I have a feeling this game is going blow peoples minds. Crackdown 1 will always be one of my all time favourite games... I just have to get that orb... I have to have it! I need to get faster and stronger, shoot better and jump higher, driver better and transform! Oh the addiction of orb collecting!
Scalebound was also nothing like Fable a year ago... I'm just saying.
Crackdown is obviously having development issues.. So we don't know if those hurdles will be avoided
Huh why are you replying to me? Who are talking to? Literally nothing to do with my comment
yeah but Scalebound didnt have the power of the cloud. Or the double stacked Gpu or extra kinect power. ...
Crackdown 3 may turn out to be fantastic but if it was coming along fine it wouldn't have been delayed and ghosted through E3 last year.
Looks like the devs at platinum screwed the pooch big time. it's better for MS to halt production and possibly get another studio to rework the game internally for a few years time. Better than an itter debacle or even worse a further large scale delay.
As for crackdown, if the concept is taking longer to deploy then fair enough. We don't know the internal status of this game or the logistics of not only testing the game but also ensuring the infrastructure for the games cloud compute will not be a disaster at release. I suppose taking the time and making sure that the game is the dog bollocks along with an amazing cloud compute system that's robust at release is more important than a delay due to dev issues like they have had with platinum.
"Looks like the devs at platinum screwed the pooch big time."
since Platinum are the ones to blame, how about the other ones who saw their project getting canned? Is it also their fault? And why do these mistakes only happen with MS lately?
Ignore those guys. Nothing they say or do can change your opinion and that's all that matters. I also enjoyed the first crackdown a lot and the guy behind that is the same guy behind this too. Have fun bro. Hopefully the game will end up great.
Where there is smoke there is fire:
The fact that you have so many down votes is a testament to how plagued with Sony fanboys this place is. You got down voted for sharing your excitement about an upcoming game and love for a previous title. Sad.
Replace "Sad" with these 3 "N4G". Now do you get it? ;)
Or it could be that many people just don't believe Crackdown is going to be a great game.
So if I downvoted something like for Honor does that mean that I'm in Activision Fanboys hating on Ubisoft? At the end of the day Gamers generally could feel however they want to about games regardless of what platform they own they're still gamers.
Buddy I wasn't wowed by Knack or no mans.sky just because I own a PlayStation 4...
The people are down voting may just not have faith in the title.
I think people disagree because....maybe they don't agree with the notion that Crackdown will blow minds? Just throwing out an interpretation here. You see it as "downvoting". Maybe it is. I see it as people just not agreeing with that statement.
People might disagree with me, but I'm not going to lose sleep over it. It's an opinion. SirJoJo doesn't even appear to be taking it as a slight and they're the one who people apparently disagree with.
On topic, I'm sure Crackdown is still coming along. That is Microsoft's proof of concept for cloud computing. They simply cannot abandon that. Scalebound was certainly unexpected and should've been a boon for the Xbox One as a sort of Japanese developer gateway exclusive, but this is a first party title from a game that is demonstrating new technology. I think everyone can rest easy. It's definitely coming out. And if it's taking this long, I have a very hard time believing that the cloud technology would be inconsiderable. Whatever you saw with TitanFall was, in my opinion, nothing compared to what you will be seeing with Crackdown in terms of cloud computation.
One potential concern, though: Microsoft's cloud will likely deliver. Assuming that is the only reason why Crackdown hasn't released, how many games featuring the technology can expect?
I'm beyond caring to be honest, I enjoy what I enjoy and if anyone takes issue or doesn't like that... Oh well, ain't my problem
Just stop with that. Cuz when Xbox 360 was doing good sales n there was hate towards ps3 there was PLENTY of xboners talking crap on this site.
So just stop, it's rly............sad lol
I love my xbox, but I think people are disagreeing with the opinion that "this game is going to blow people's minds" I think its had some development issues and not so certain how well its going to turn out. I hope he's right, I hope it will be amazing, i'm just not seeing it yet.
If people aren't excited and looking forward to the game, they have every right to disagree with the comment whether they be Sony fans or Xbox fans.
Is it sad that people don't agree with him?
The fact that you have so many down votes is a testament to how plagued with Sony fanboys this place is. You got down voted for sharing your thoughts on why he was downvoted. Someone didn't like that.
Xbox is terrible but you are correct that game was awesome. Played the demo over and over. The disagrees are actually hilarious as I am usually one.
Blow minds? Based on what? The original game that blew YOUR mind because you leveled up a character and had to collect stuff???
And its another sequel to your beloved Crackdown that isn't been made by the studio that developed the original. Maybe just calm yourself so you won't be disappointed but going by your excitement, if it has a day night cycle in it your life will be complete.
It was a fun game. Calm down.
Have break... have a kitkat
Wow what a dickish attitude. The guy is excited for a game and you're pissing on his parade with a ratchet and clank pic as your profile pic like that game was mind blowing.
Lol. Such a sad and pathetic comment. Anyways It's to be expected coming from you though.
LOL @ everyone above getting defensive. Don't worry about Crackdown, the cloudz will save it.
Ratchet and clank is Better than crackdown. No need to bring it in.
crackdown was always overrated. Fun for a bit, but no lasting appeal. To mention scalebound just tells me there's issues because obviously anything LIKE scalebound just means it'll get cancelled, but it's in a bad enough state to mention there's SERIOUS issues.
Or maybe they are mentioning Scalebound because they know that is one of the easiest ways to get attention & clicks right now. Especially here on n4g. Just type it & watch them fall over themselves to come.
If all that is the case, then why is the only selling point for it so far that it has fully destructible environments based on cloud computing?
Keep in mind, we've known about CD3 for longer than SB, yet we have actually seen less of the game than we have of SB. MS has been very careful to not show much of the game off.
Seems like a lot of faith is being put into a game that has barely even been shown. Most of that faith is based on MS promise of fully destructible environments, probably some need for cloud computing to be something substantial, and the nostalgic reminder that the first game was good, and the willful ignoring that the 2nd one wasn't that great.
This is Crackdown *3*. What about CD2?
And when all is said and done, isn't this game's big thing suppose to be enhanced particle physicals via the cloud?
1, Crackdown 2 wasn't made by the same devs as 1
2. It was no where near as good as the first
3. For me the cloud stuff is just a bonus
4. Why do you care?
I didn't downvote anything. I hope crackdown 3 is badass and I don't see this going away.
Just sit back and sip the haterade...
I support all the platforms and just love me some gaming. Even if a comment gets a ton of down votes, I view it as it was read, taken into account and then decided upon. I think that's a good thing and everyone is entitled to their own opinion until it differs from mine,... I kid!
72 dislikes. Can't remember seeing that many. Maybe that should tell you something...
Yeh, that I disagree with 72 individuals but they are entitled to their opinion. if I don't care, why do you lol
This game will be a letdown. It is inevitable. Xbox users have basically NOTHING to go on now except this game so it will be hyped from here to oblivion and will never live up to it's insane hype. Although I can't wait to see what the cloud does for the game (pfff hahahahaha).
I've been waiting 8 years for an open world game with physics based destruction. Don't Fuck it up, can only play so much Red Faction Guerilla before I get tired of it.
Red Faction was one of the first games I bought for the Xbox 360.
Wish we could get a true sequel but THQ Nordic is just sitting on the franchise doing very little with it. They better announce something this year not just for Red Faction but all of the other franchises that are collecting dust like darksiders, destroy all humans, stuntman, and many more.
Yeh considering how great Guerilla's destruction was I just don't get how that kind of thing hasn't caught on after all of these years. Crackdown looks to be the only one that's going for it and the predetermined destruction in games like BF1 just doesn't even count as far as I'm concerned.
THQ no longer exists and Volition is now defunct. I forgot who now owns the rights to the franchise but I doubt it will be done justice.
Nordic bought the rights and just changed their name to THQ Nordic and Volition is working on Agents of Mayhem.
Just Cause 3.....?
Not really the same. Can't destroy everything.
Red Faction was on the PS2, Microsoft Windows, Mac OSX and NGuage. Granted the sequels were on other consoles such as the Gamecube, XBox, PS3 and XBox360. https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...
Even though the games had destructible environments none of those games relied on the Cloud.
The Cloud or as it was known in the 1980's Remote IT Services can be a very useful for many things and one of them is offloading calculations to powerful remote machines. Of course, you also have to consider the time take to send, process and receive the updated information with the Internet being the major bottleneck. If you have a good enough network connection then fine but if you don't have an internet or a poorly performing one then so-called cloud servers can be useless.
I'll believe it when I see it. There's been more radio silence involving Crackdown 3. At least Scalebound had something to show.
That is true. Hopefully it is still on track for those that have been waiting. It has been pretty quiet though around this game.
That's good! I wonder if it will have all the cloud stuff still.
I hope it doesn't. That's probably what's giving them the issues. In a perfect networked world, this concept would work. Not with the real world infrastructure though. To unstable, bandwidth caps, and majority of people have a connection lower than 10mbps. It's just not realistic right now.
I think the better question is, did it ever truly exist outside of a controlled environment?
No I don't believe it did hence why it's taking so long to make. That's what I think anyway.
I hope it turns out great. It's good to see Dave Jones behind this once again.
Usually when a game takes a while to release with no new gameplay being shown, the final product ends up being nothing like what was promised. Like No Man's Sky. There are a few exceptions though. I get the feeling the cloud power they promised will be a little gimped from what we were promised or assumed it would be.
Bad example but i agree with the premise
Wouldn't say usually, but often.
On a more technical level, I imagine a game with a fully destructable environment, with no scripting for it's destruction, would be a nightmare to test and make sure it works without issue.
I gaurantee you that there is some quick, "unstick", for when one's character manages to get stuck in the environment, and doesn't happen to die. There's a reason that limits are placed on game worlds, and it's because so many things go wrong when you start dealing with tons of static mesh objects which can interact with the players avatar. I bet there are going to be tons of glitches which people exploit for the first couple months of this game releases until the devs find a band-aid fix which just breaks immersion to keep people from getting frustrated with the online.
Still. I was looking forward mostly to Scalebound.
Microsoft have to step it up one last time to give Xbox its foot in the game.
Arguably better Online and Features Check.
Power gap closed and surpassed Check.
Quality and Quantity approach to exclusive Windows 10/Xbox content...not even close.
I believe that truth is well known by the company and great things are coming that'll make Scalebound seem like a worthy sacrifice.
"Power gap closed and surpassed "
Are you talking about Scorpio?
The Xbox One S still isn't as powerful as the PS4 and the PS4 Pro which is why I'm asking.
Good. One of my most anticipated.
The scalebound haters are now scalebound lovers 😂smh
Haha it is hilarious that
The scalebound lovers are now
Scalebound haters 🤣Smh
Ive seen that happen as well. I mean the cancellation is sad but some people's reactions are hilarious.
What I do agree with is that Scalebound was something different from Xbox.
I've always said I was interested in Scalebound, but I was weary of the dragons, no game has made great dragon pets, and only pretty good bosses.Dragons are hard to do really good in games period
but the xbox fanboys who used to love scalebound now hates it xD.
A longtime playstation fan, I've always maintained that the one, singular Xbox game I've anticipated is Scalebound.
The cloud will be forgotten. It'll be on Scorpio as selling point instead.
Cant understand the love for scalebound and the disappointment. Because what I saw looked like absolute and utter shyte
Nothing like Scalebound? Do we have a detailed report of what happened with Scalebound to make that kind of statement?
Lies, lies and slander....
Lol another game axed, microsoft disappoints, fanatics get quiet and another gets mentioned then all of a sudden the messiah has returned lol some of you never learn and loveeeeee disappointment. The cloud talk huh, crazy destructible real time destruction you say and ? We saw that when? Years agoooooo u say and hasn't reappeared since? No never because what they showed was shown on high end PCs in a controlled environment. Xbox one, nor Microsoft will pull that off just how Kinect initial demo videos were all smoke and mirrors and not what we finally received.
I don't understand how ppl have faith in a company that continuously disappoints. We are already hearing Crackdown is going through issues (we knew that bcus no new info last E3 and no show) yet you read some of these comments and have to wonder what bizarro world ppl are living in. Then you look at the commentator names and its the same ones fighting that good fight. You know the ones that use to say kinect was awesome, rrod wasn't Microsoft's fault, Microsoft has tons of exclusives lol and the list goes on :)
We will get Crackdown but we all know it won't be what was promised.
