Microsoft crafting Xbox 360 exclusive multiplayer shooter

OXM: "We're becoming increasingly fascinated by Microsoft Vancouver's unannounced AAA core game project, among the secret and not-so-secret Xbox 360 games mooted in our recent Microsoft E3 predictions round-up. A new MGS job listing has hacked away a little more ambiguity - the game is a multiplayer shooter."

The story is too old to be commented.

Fingers crossed for a new IP.

As much as I hate the oversaturation of shooters this gen, I'm keeping an eye on this. Microsoft could use some new exclusive as long as it's not affiliated with this motion controller gen. I would be a welcomed change from the constant Kinect scenery.

I think i new exclusive is welcome despite what genre it is for the 360.

egidem1926d ago

True, but Microsoft is taking your logic to another level - as long as they keep making exclusives they've got the freedom of making them what they want. They're taking that chance by feeding the fanbase with Kinect shovelware.

A shooter can be anything from the likes of Uncharted to the likes of Halo, to the likes of Mass Effect.

MS have multiplayer shooter experiences more than covered with Halo, Gears and COD.

So this may be something fresh and new. Wait and see.

Actually, I'm pretty sure Uncharted is billed as an Action Adventure/Platform game (you can actually do little shooting and just beat most enemies to the punch). Mass Effect is positevely an Action RPG.

Just because it have shooter gameplay mechanics to some extent, doesn't mean it's limited to that. Examples are many... Red Dead Revolver, MGS4, Fallout/Elder Scrolls, L.A. Noire, Mirror's Edge, Ratchet & Clank...

That said, I'm not disagreeing with you. It all depends on what they mean by shooter in the job posting...

It could be any genre and they are refering specifically to work at the shooter gameplay mechanics.

Or it could be one of the many shooter genres we have out there (FPS, TPS, On-rail, Top-down, etc).

Heck, it could even be something new. Gotta wait and see...

Well I do agree there can be a variety of shooter types, and some are indeed great. I'm just tired of gun heavy games lately lol.

Machioto1926d ago

I believe it shouldn't matter sense it's exclusive to Ms.

TekoIie1926d ago (Edited 1926d ago )

Are you being sarcastic? Because this site is dominated by Sony fans or are you trolling???

Machioto1926d ago (Edited 1926d ago )

I'm a sony fan and i'm not joking about what I said because,even though there is a lot of fps' out,it doesn't matter sense it's only exclusive to Ms console and my comment was meant for snookie.

Well lets face the facts, shooters are the most popular game types. That being said, the shooter genre covers a lot of ground now days. From Red Dead Redemption, Mass Effect, Call Of Duty, Gears Of War, Uncharted and even Max Payne.

There are a lot of new shooters coming out, Starhawk was just released and proved that shooters can bring in fresh elements and improve upon a genre as a whole. So I would suggest maybe hold before passing judgement on a game we know nothing about.

I mean what if someone had said "Another shooter...?" about Uncharted or Gears? I mean those are great games.

This could be something amazing.

Gears of Duty: Halo Kinect?

majiebeast1926d ago

dark-hollow1926d ago (Edited 1926d ago )

Funny because ms almost never abused DLCs on halo, gears or forza.

units1926d ago
