What if Microsoft made an Xbox All-Stars game for the Xbox 360?

XMNR: After the announcement of Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale for the Playstation 3, we ran across this image of what a similar game might look like from Microsoft for the Xbox 360 from the Italian site Beavers.it. While this made us laugh out loud but how much truth is there in it? We delve into the catalog of Xbox exclusives to figure out what kind of a fighting game roster we could come up with. (PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, Xbox 360)

I don't think MS has enough big characters to make a game like that (Master Chief, Marcus....Forza car). It might work if it only had characters from different multiplatform titles, but if it were to go strictly from MS exclusives list, they probably won't be a lot of characters to play with.

LMAO @ Dante using 'Forza car'..that would literally be the worst fighting character EVER.

My take..

The truth is you really could find enough characters , but it honestly wouldnt make sense to make this kind of game for the 360.

Since the early PS1 and PS2 days those gens had strong single player character driven games from the old Crash Bandicoot, Spyro and Jak and Daxter days all the way to the Kratos, LBP and Drake days of the current gens. So they work perfectly for a Smash Bros type game.

For the 360 I'd rather MS just spend the time and resources necessary to create a next gen Killer Instinct..that would rock the world. THEN add Masrer Chief, Marcus, and DOM as unlockable characters.

Either way I hope the PS3 game turns out good..Fighting games are tough to get right. Even Nintendo literally does one per gen.

That Killer Instinct idea sounds pretty good! :o Lets hope it happens!

I dont think the Xbox community wants this sort of thing though. Actually im not entirely sure what the Xbox community wants :/

With the playstation we get almost every genre in the exclusive zone but i think MS is very reliant on 3rd party support (which is almost as important as exclusives). Im sure MS will bring out new franchise's when next gen begins. Halo 4 is really the 360's last battle cry and MS will probably remake it for the Nextbox but its a smart move on their part. If people have wanted to play halo and not bought the console for it nows the time to do so.

LOL..are you pretending that because of the games released you believe that the PS3 community wants different games than the 360 community.

Just look at a chart and I'll tell you what the PS3 conmunity wants..Call of Duty..over any of those exclusives.

It's the same with the 360 community..

You buy a system and of course you end up getting the best it has to offer. That doesnt differentiate the gaming communities as WE like this and THEY like that.

The reason why a Smash Bros type game woyuld work for the PS3 is because similiar to Mario had those types of game in the Sony history that could honestly carry that type of game.

Nintendo has made a living on these franchise and Super Smash is the staple of the system. It's cool that we can get a different take on it. It's just that the 360 characters don't lend well to a casual type crossover game like that.

Any 360 hardcore gamer would rather have a 200-team Halo 4 than a crossover fighting game. Similiar to nobody really wanting Fable Heroes, a Castle crasher type game that didn't have the quality to carry that type of genre.

At the end of the day, I still think it's a great move for Sony and would be a lousy move for Micrsoft. Again..unless we are talking Killer Instinct that is.

MS doesn't have enough characters that people care about
OllieBoy  +   1097d ago
Pretty much. They would have to moneyhat a lot of third-party characters just to fill out the roster.
NastyLeftHook0  +   1097d ago
pretty much, ms thought they had enough characters but took an arrow to the knee.

I'd buy it but not full price retail product. I wouldn't even buy the competition's offering, minus Nintendo's, at full price.
KwietStorm  +   1097d ago
You wouldn't buy the competition minus Nintendo lol why don't you just say Sony? What's the problem? Stealth mode

There's more characters then people know about. Especially from Xbox 1. There's Abe, azura, masterchief, the lone wolf guy, fusion frenzy, arbiter, Widow maker, Sam fisher, Blinx, blood wake etc then there is Joanna dark, gears, reach, viva piñata, fable etc. they have a lot of characters people are just too ignorant to know it because Microsoft doesn't pump out exclusives anymore.
Prince_Dim-Lu  +   1097d ago
People don't want to hear your truth. Everyone is to excited for the random obscure characters Sony is using from their PSN titles.
smashcrashbash  +   1097d ago
Fat Princess us the only 'obscure PSN character' ,as you put it, they have so far and she is still more well known then some of the characters h311rais3r called out.Not to mention since most of Microsoft's characters belong to third parties they would have to pay a fortune to get them all. Many of Sony's characters actually belong to them.
MaxXAttaxX  +   1097d ago
What random obscure characters?
You must be joking.
Machioto  +   1097d ago
I don't care if the character is obscure but I would like most to be exclusive to ms console and I believe they don't have enough exclusive character to make such a game and they can't have to many people that do the same thing.

@prince Sony's version only copies the 4 player lay out but the level design was copied from a game, made by namco called the out foxies.

To tell the truth Microsoft doesn't have enough well known characters for it to make much of a game. Several of Sony's characters are known by the many people who owned PS1 and PS2 games back in the day but most people don't even know who Blinx or Kameo are unless they go look it up.Microsoft was never really known for making memorable characters.

@ h311rais3r. But how many of those are characters do people know? Many people know who Parapper the Rapper, Kratos, Sweet Tooth, Ratchet and Clank and Jak are because many gamers now are ex PlayStation owners but who remembers who Blinx the Cat or what Viva Pinata is? You seem to forget that there where one 150 million plus people who had PS1s and PS2s. That is more people then the Xbox or Xbox 360 had combined. There aren't enough people who remember them. It has nothing to do with ignorance.

If the 360 made a game like this, I'd say they copied Sony, who copied Nintendo.

Kran  +   1097d ago
Look, obviously no one who commented actually saw the many characters this site suggested, and believe it or not, theres more than you think; classic and new.

.... But its if people would actually care enough about them. I mean, sure they have enough characters... but hardly any of them are actually well known unlike Sony's.

Dont forget the complete Killer Instinct Cast :) ohh what woud i give for a new Killer Instict....
Queasy  +   1097d ago
They never appeared on the Xbox 360 or Xbox so they were a no go. Agree that it would be nice to have a new Killer Instinct game though. But I'm not sure if Rare in its current incarnation would be able to pull it off.
TheDivine  +   1097d ago
MS has more than enough characters but it would need to be a real fighter not another smash bros clone. Make it play like Killer Instinct and have

Kaim and Seth from Lost Odyssey
Shu fro Blue Dragon
Ryu from Ninja Gaiden
Commmander Shepard
Mech from Mechwarrior
Master Chief
Yuri from Vesperia
Baulder fom Too Human
Sam Fisher
Characters from Kotor
Jade Empire characters
Theresa from fable and maybe the hero
kid from limbo
kid from bastion
kid from braid
Jason Fleming from Shadow Complex
killer instinct characters
Joanah Dark
Viva Pinata pinatas
Characters from 99 nights 1 and 2
Alan Wake and Mr Sratch
3rd party characters like Geralt from TW2, and anyone like Ezio, Dante, John Marston, Chris or Jill exc. Anyone saying ms doesnt have alot of characters doesnt realize how many ip's they own. Its not just gears and halo.
Hicken  +   1097d ago
Ryu from Ninja Gaiden
Commmander Shepard
Yuri from Vesperia
Sam Fisher
Jade Empire characters
Theresa from fable and maybe the hero
kid from limbo

killer instinct characters
Joanah Dark

Characters that are all third party, not very well known, or identified more with another console.

It's not just about owning IPs, but having characters a lot of people will recognize and identify with your system.
GameOn  +   1097d ago
conker and Joanah are fine and I would throw in a hunter from Halo too.
Psychonaughty  +   1097d ago
As much as I'd like to see a Microsoft smash brothers, a Sega smash brothers interests me a 1000 fold more, I grew up on Sega you see, also the newly announced Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed has brought out my inner Sega fanboy, just bought the 1st Sega All-Stars for £11 on Amazon so the circle would be complete!

If they didn't care enough to make killer instinct, why would they bother with a untested ip.

The fact that people are having to fill the roster with multiplatform games, xbox 1 titles and 2-3 characters from each exclusive 360 game. Shows how badly ms 1st party lineup is this gen compared with sony and nintendo.

If the 360 crowd wants new games aimed at non kinect gamers, you need to put the boot up ms's ass. Because all the sequels to the games you enjoyed on the xbox 1 and even alot of 360 games, will never see the light of day, with the current mentality at microsoft's games division.
