9 Franchise Revivals that Could Save the Xbox One

It’s no secret that the last few years haven't been kind to Microsoft. Whilst the big green behemoth used to perch atop the pile of last generation consoles, the Xbox One's infamously misjudged E3 announcement saw it slide to the bottom of the pack, almost overnight. Microsoft was left face down in the dirt, and although they've managed to somewhat pick themselves up, Xbox as a brand has never really dusted itself off.

Big releases in the form of Halo 5 and Gears Of War 4 didn't innovate enough to entertain hardcore franchise devotees, while more original titles such as Recore or Sunset Overdrive failed to make waves.

Microsoft is sitting on some great games personally i like these Alan wake, Fable, Banjo Kazooie, Crimson Skies, Jade Empire, Conker. imagine all of them running in native 4k

TFJWM278d ago

I rather them running as good games...

some games just simply ran their course and werent intended to continue. Others should though and MS has been very quiet with all of their in house stuff. Maybe something interesting will happen at E3, but then again it might be business as usual.

I've been an an Xbox supporter until this generation. I recommend the gears of war series and halo through halo reach. Those are some of the exclusives that made Xbox great.

The games mentioned on this list are phenomenal and I don't know why they are subject to the dusty cellar...

FinalFantasyFanatic277d ago

So many good IPs they're just sitting on when they could be putting them to work.
