The Official Xbox Magazine for August have been sent out now. Whiles browsing through the pages to see what an amazing lineup of titles that are coming out this year for the 360..
There might be too many big titles being released too close to each other. Some will probably be delayed.
i want some of the 07 games to be pushed back becasue
1. theyll be overshadowed by halo, GTA
2. i dont have enough $$$
thinking that only ps3 titles were getting delayed. or wait they are afraid to let the title go head to head with HALO 3 ?
no...considering the beta it is most likely the other way around...they are afraid to bring HALO head to head against it
Wow. Words can't describe how dumb that comment was.
this is waiting
and the worst part is that not many 360s would survive till 2008...they are just too hot thesedays
are you really that stupid??
it's been delayed for like 10 years, somehow I'm not shocked
Lol thats what i was thinking. Well if it's true, at least we have a game to look forward to in 2008.
I don`t care not getting it anyways.
another one bites the dust
I heard about the Mass Effect rumor, now this. I remember 2 months ago, when I was writing down all the great looking games with potential this second half of the year. Somehow if these rumors are true, I know all these good games could not overlap each other. This is all strategy by publishers.
That fall 360 line-up was looking just" TOO GOOD 2 BE TRUE"
I have not been disappointed with delays though, with all the other good games coming out,
a.It gives developers more time to polish.
b.Me to save up and budget(damn x-mas gifts)
c.More time with the special lady.
d.More gaming for me, when I'm buried under snow, in early 2008.
Well if true, this game will be put in the rear view mirror..
I was beginning to have a hard time coming up with the money for all the titles I wanted to get. I can handle Too Human being delayed, but it would really blow if the Mass Effect rumor were true. I really want to get my hands on that one. I think you're right, they may just be trying to spread out what was becoming a clusterfvck of great games. Ah well, just as long as they keep 'em coming.
This is a smart move for MS, there are many big hitters this year and with Fable 2, Alan Wake, Mass Effect and Too Human coming out next year, this could sell the 360 even more, plus, many people who do get a 360 and Halo 3 will be too busy playing Halo 3 and GTA IV.
except that smart move hurts the gamers, but we got GTA, Halo 3(better be one big massive campaign kicking the sh!t out of those Brutes and goat like Prophets), Bioshock and enough others to kill whatever outside life we have
waaaaaaaaaah how dare you take my candy from me? I am building a proper rig which is costing me a kidney and 5 litres of my blood. Crysis better be able to handle my gaming hunger, now that my list for this year is getting shorter, otherwise I will sue Microsoft, Bioware and Silicon Knights.
I guess I can freeze myself cryogenically for one year.
THIS IS BULLSH!T microsoft is gonna lose this fall if they keep pushing titles back to 2008. Already a heap of exclusives are coming for ps3, AND killzone 2. They need all the forst party titles they can send out this fall or it's doomed, that's already two possible pushed back to 08, another one and it's over.
stop this fckin bullsh!t about, oh games r gettin delayed so they dont get ownd by halo 3 deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerf.
Well yea I think it's rather upsetting about the delay. Specially with them wanting this to be a trilogy. So are we going to get the second part on the next run of consoles? Plus as the main dev guy said that no one wants a long game anymore, so this first part can't be that long of a game. I suppose though they (Silicon Knights) put out some great games on the cube so I'll still be eagerly awaiting the day this finally goes gold
Too Human = Too Late.
ITS A FREAKING RUMOR
yeah from an "OFFICIAL XBOX MAG" so there is no possiblilty that it can be true.
Too close to Halo, Too close for comfort.
Ahhhh now what!? this is getting really irritating now.
If I was a developer I would not launch anywhere near halo3...
a game will come out this gen and 1up halo like halo 1up`d things last gen.
1up did what?
Mayday, mayday,... abandon ship, abandon ship!!! (sirens go crazy)
Weren't some of you XBOTS in here, the same FOOLS that kept saying how PS3 games were being delayed?....
DVD9, IS NOT ENOUGH SPACE for what the devs want to achieve, and they are ALL starting to realize it.....HAHAHAHAHA
These "delays" WILL keep reoccurring.
@Odion bellow....I'm perfectly content, and highly aware that Killzone may not look like the 05' trailer, but it will still look FAR SUPERIOR to anything that will be available within the lifespan of the 360. You BABOON!!...hahaha
i bet all those 9 agrees were from your nine accounts =0
no LIFE KILL YOURSELF
its still nothing more then a rumor! Has MS said anything other then 2007, and have the devlopers said anything?
Bill the moment Killzone doesn't look like the CGI trailer from 2005, this and ME come out in 2007. I am going to make sure you know how stupid you sound
I am beginning to suspect that this game will either:
never be finished
does no tlive up to the hype by any shape way or form.
It just has been in development for far to long for me not to suspect anything.
You could say the same about the KillZone 2 game, by why would you. The longer they take, the better you can expect the game to be. Don't you want them to tweak all the bugs out? and make the game, as close as perfect as you can. Since no game is perfect, anyhow.
Don't worry "Rhezin", there is still plenty of games like "zonetrooper5" stated, HALO 3 and GTIV will last till January for some people, as well as other games.
Of course if all of these games would come out, the 360 would be one of the only Console with most 3rd-Party Exclusives this holiday season.
Sony is way behind in "1st-Party" and will catch up by next year, I heard.
Nintendo, well, where is the 3rd-party? Of course Mario and SSB will also keep me busy.
I think there is a lot more games that will keep gamers busy till early 2008. Right now MS just need to ride the Wave.....and Commit/Admit to XBox 360 issues, and the fans will continue to follow, where the games are.
Your are right, I could say that about killzone 2, but I am unaware of the development time for it - I was sure that Too Human game has been in development for several years.
It just that usually some games like this, that have had all this hype and build up, IMO, rarely live up to the hype.
Of course I want there to be no bugs in the game and have it tweaked to perfection, but it just worries me that the game has so many problems that it is taking an age and a day to fix the bugs.
God comment bud - rep for you
GTAIV, Bioshock, HALO 3, NFS. Not to mention the usual lineup from EA. How much gaming can you stick into one quarter of a year, isn't everyone's only 3 months long? Would you unleash every card in your hand in one year when you've gotta spread it out evenly over the course of at least 5 years? They've got us in mind (as far as great games being available goes), but they've also got profitability in mind as well. Record labels do the same damn thing, n' this is nothing new in the industry. Damn, I could see if we weren't gettin' shyt...
Why would game companies compete with each other when there making a game for the same system thats just dumb? so what if TooHuman release in the same day as Mass effect wouldnt that be good if you guys actually got to have both god you XBox 360 fans are so dumb that you guys would get worried if one of the XBox 360 games were competting against each other when you shouldnt even care about that and get them both you guys are so pathetic in so many levels.
The same reason two artist on a record label wouldn't drop an album within the same time frame. I see clearly why you have one bubble, this isn't complex.
Xbox1 sold 24 million units, but halo1 only sold 4 million copies what does that tell you. 20 million people like other games more than halo, which is why the 360 is in trouble to many shooters and not enough variety. Halo could sell 5 million copies and not expand the 360 user base. Look at sony's lineup they have something for everyone and that's why they will expand their user base because they cater to the market.
mass effect delayed, now too human delayed. :)
no offence, just funny, when x360 fanboys were laughing from some ps3 games delayed and now getting the same treatment. :)
"He who laughs last, laughs loudest." ©
First some of this falls under rumors. so I don't see where you think rumors become fact.
On another note, come oooon, the PS3 was even delayed like a year, as well as the wait for games, and the Delay of games, so who do you think has had more time to get sh!t done and deliver? Talk about "Too Much Time", but we all know why.
Well, like I stated nobody should be upset if this becomes fact, since there are so many other games, that will be played when the time comes.(Xbox fans, I'm sure knows this), Of course I rather have a game delayed for obvious reasons, I'm sure you can come up with some, if it was a PS3 game.
Then again, "waiting" for a console, then "waiting" for games, and again to have these games and others be "delayed" is pure misery and a waste of money (IMO), as being an early adopter.
Too human was delayed often in past, so this time, it will be also probably delayed. =)
many games? well yeah, some multiplatform like on ps3, but exclusives? 2 less.
Then only left Halo3, LO, Pgr4, i mean Big games, and nothing more.
I mean, it will be now harder to fight with ps3 this Cristmas. =)
About ps3, people know what they wait for, they wait for graphics of CG level like in FFXIII, Uncharted, Ratchet. It worth to wait.
p.s. it`s not about that people won`t have what to play this autumn, both consoles will have great games, but for delaying 2 Big games, x360 may not dominate this Cristmas, moreover, if MGS4 comes this year, it definately will be a hard battle. :)
Every silicon knights game in history has been delayed at least once. I saw this coming months ago; its part of their MO. The are artist and you shouldnt rush art in my opinion
I am kinda glad too. I recall when I got Gears and then COD3 the next week. LOL...I didn't open COD3 for litterally 1 month I was so busy enjoying Gears. It felt like wasted money...(ok turns out it kinda was...didnt care for COD3 in the long run) but I am just saying having so many games come out at the same time is tough on consumer.
Now I do hope they try and keep the mix of games good...i.e. shooter, RPG, platformer, free roaming, etc... A mix of good games for the holiday season will make those slipped titles not matter as much imo.
This game is becoming the new Duke Nukem. I don't think it's ever going to be released.
You guys call ps3 the delaystion same goes for all consoles..xbox to the wii...its the industry that just how it is..im buying 20 games this winter to tide me over till next year.
Yeah it's getting bad for gamers. I mean every big game gets at least one major delay.
devs are starting to wonder whether the xbox 30% will even be around in a couple of months. ergo, delay the game and wait and see.
Thats a pretty radical theory... The devs would make a killing if they sold the game to 35%-40% of the current fanbase i'm sure you are the only person that has dreamed up fictional reason. Could Sony fanboys have child-like reasoning?.
I'm sure Devs developing for the PS2 didn't wait for Sony to phase out hardware issues before resuming the development of sofware.
Heres a few of wild theories if this is true.
* Theres Too many games coming out at once MS thought it would be a good idea to flood the market with games but realized speading them out leaving gamers hungry would sell more copies of each title.
* Silicon Knights just isn't finished and or has figured out to make the game better due to more knowlge of the hardware.
* MS & friends has developed a new way to of adding more space to its medium and devs pushed back games to take advantage of a new offerings that wern't available when development started on these titles.
* Its a made up theory that MS haters look for to post out of fear due to not wan'ting their childhood console company to be in last place of fail altogther and this type of news serves as an comfort tool.
(((THWIP))) - Good looking out i was just in the Mass Effect delayed post and got ahead of myself.
" * BioWare just isn't finished and or has figured out to make the game better due to more knowlge of the hardware. "
I think you mean Silicon Knights. ;)
Looks like misery does Love Company. This will just come out in 2008 no big deal. This year Halo 3, Bio SHOCK and GTA4 will insure some great gaming.
Same could be said about the 'supposed' MGS4 delay, "the only people that had a problem were known XBOX fanboys," right? Sensible people know that if it's delayed, it's for a good reason.
We'll know soon enough Denis D. doesn't like curruption and falsness. Its too bad we don't have him on this site.
(((((_insane_cobra #32))))) I wonder if the pulled games from Xbox.com have something to do with E3.
UrbanJabroni -#38 I'v been fighting them sence just after i joined this site once the mods gave the responsibility of running this site to the members thats when the Sony camp started running this site taking its credibility its no more valid now than a anti MS; Sony forum.
All the 360fans have left and don't post news its the PS3 fanboys controlling what being posted for both console.
MS are spreading there games out for 2008, there are already too many games comming out on 360 in 2007. If all games came in 2007, what would be left for 2008? Good move IMO.
360 owners have plenty of games to keep them entain for 2007.
BD,Halo, Bioshock,LO,Eternal Sonata, GTA4 and many many more. Surely thats enough for 2007.
Well I really really want this game but agian, if they make the game better by delaying it then thats OK especially with all the other games out.
I JUST bought Darkness and Overlord and I still need to finish Forza and for that matter I was talking to someone today about a RTS and it got me stoked to finish LOTR:BFME and I still need C&C. Then me and someone else were talking about Gears and got me stoked to replay that again. Plus I still want CoJ and Dirt and I never did get FEAR and Marvel Alliance (the prices should be dropping soon on those). Next month I am getting NCAA and two worlds. If I cant get too human in early august at least I have Bioshock, Blue Dragon and Medal of Honor in late August.... so forth and so on. Would still really like Too Human though.
blue dragon,lost oddysey, assasins creed,bioshock, splinter cell conviction, gta 4, halo 3, unreal tournament, enternal sonita, ace combat 6. dont think ill have enough time if too human came out to, too many games so this is not a bad thing
There are definately coming a lot of GOOD games this autumn on both systems. =)
But, speaking about the console war, mass effect and too human delays now won`t help x360 this Cristmas in a very hard battle between x360 and ps3. :)
...can a game that NEVER had a release date, be "delayed"?
And, for those saying Too Human has been in production for several years, here's some info to clear things up:
"Too Human was originally in development for the PlayStation as a 5-disc action-adventure game. It was shown at E3 1999. But shortly before its completion Nintendo announced an exclusive partnership with Silicon Knights, and the game was moved to the Nintendo GameCube in 2000. A teaser trailer was shown at SpaceWorld 2000 showing what appeared to be a re-building of the PlayStation game. The game never surfaced though, and the partnership between the two companies was ended. After this, the title was still thought to be in development for the GameCube, but those plans have since been cancelled.
In the May 2005 issue of EGM, Silicon Knights announced a partnership with publisher Microsoft to develop a trilogy revolving around the Too Human universe exclusively for the Xbox 360. The game is being developed using Epic Games' Unreal Engine 3."
Just like Kameo, this game saw a few different platforms, as well as publishers. The Too Human game that's coming to the 360, has NOTHING to do with the original title planned for the PS1, very little in common with what was planned for the GC. As it currently stands, Too Human as actually only been in development for about 3 years.
Probably still coming in 2007. Someone at TooHuman.net forums noticed Too Human has been pulled from the coming soon section of the new Xbox.com website. Denis Dyack responded:
"Put no weight into that at all :). I didnt see Mass Effect either.
Too Human is going extremely well - I personally cannot wait till our next blow out. For now our blogs will have to do :)"
Seems like it's coming along as planned.
I paid off Mass Effect and Too Human early in advance and still waiting until these games release!!! If it is true then in August I will stick with Bio-Shock for the mean time.
I'm sorry that my comments as of recent have been nothing but negative, but what in God's name happened to this site? Why are there so many posts by 12 year old Sony fanboys?
I use to be very conservative in what I said, usually referring to fanboys on both side as bad, constantly noting that both sides behaved in the same childish manner.
But I'm almost at the point that I find the 360 posts 100% unreadable because of the idiots constantly posting "xbot" or other such drivel. The PS3 posts, however, have this insane blind optimism that I just can't understand. I really am starting to get all of my news from magazines, which is a shame since I do this for a living and would like to stay on top of the issues that aren't directly related to my studio...
I was a proud owner of all 3 consoles, an adult who saw the strengths and weaknesses in each platform. The drivel I've been forced to read, however, has made me want to dissociate myself with the PS3 fanboys as much as possible and is negatively influencing my opinion of the machine.
I don't understand the juvenile agruments about how sony/microsoft sucks...it makes no sense.
This site has become Halo 2 trash talking post match.
I have said this ages ago that the place is infested with sony fanboys with one buble and multiple accounts but no one would listen.
Assasins creed, gta 4, halo3, bioshock, call of duty 4, splinter cell, brothers in arms, halflife orange box, madden 08, theres too many good titles to buy, why blow ur load all on christmas when u might not even get noticed. release them next year around jan, feb, march n theyll sell millions. this christmas most ppl will buy 1 or 2 games like halo 3 and gta4, or assasins creed. u release mass effect and too human theyll sell well but not as well as ud want them too
well of know im neutral because i havent both a next-gen system and i can only afford one
im leaning towards sony due to the 360 failure rate, but ill miss out on my favorite game halo
i guess killzone 2 / gta / res 5 might make up for it
Way to many games coming out at the same time and not enough money to buy them.
"Mass Effect wont be seeing the light of 07 on the 360 as well"
Its massive fanboys on both sides
It's stupid to think the place is infested with Sony fanboys just because people who prefer Sony have 1 bubble. It's most likely that the place is infested with Xbots that disagree and "bubble-down" everyone, especially those that prefer sony consoles. And of course, they "bubble-up" their comrades.
