Rumor: X06 Announcement Round-Up

NeoSeeker forum member posted up what looks to be predictions for Microsoft's X06 conference coming later this week to Barcelona, Spain.

Oddly enough, NeoGaffers point out that the exact same post popped up on TeamXbox. TX's forums were down for maintenance last I checked, so I'll just link to NS's post because I'm not sure who wrote what first. Either way, neither posts say anything about their source, despite the fact that they seem to present the details as news.

Here's the interesting bits from the post, hit the jump for my thoughts on the veracity of the posts.

"A new Halo 3 trailer is shown. Some multiplayer info revealed. Aiming for 50-64 player online. Announce that Halo 3 will be the first game to run natively on 1080p. They will make full use of this update. Available in 2007. Playable behind closed doors."

That spells chaos on XBL for sure. Sweet!

drewdrakes6414d ago

I believe its only speculation though, so dont get your hopes too high.

ElementX6414d ago

50-64 players online? Doubtful, unless they seriously scale down the detail. There would be too much chaos for that many people. People complain about the 8 player limit on GoW, however that allows for more detailed player models.

but I guess we'll soon find out whats true and whats not in due time.

It's A Crime That There's No Sleeping Dogs 2 Yet

Huzaifah from eXputer: "Sleeping Dogs from the early 2010s is one of the best open-world games out there but in dire need of a resurgence."

LG_Fox_Brazil3d ago

I agree, I consider the first one a cult classic already

isarai2d ago

You say "yet" as if it's even possible anymore. United Front Games is gone, along with anyone that made this game what it is

CrimsonWing692d ago

That’s what happens when games sell poorly. And I’ve seen people wonder why people cry when a game sells badly… this is your answer.

solideagle2d ago

Majority of the time it's true but if a company/publisher is big (in terms of money), they can take a hit or 2. e.g. I am not worried about Rebirth sales as Square will make Remake 3 anyway but if FF 17 doesn't sell then Square might need to look for alternative. <-- my humble opinion

Abnor_Mal2d ago

Doesn’t Microsoft own the IP now since they acquired Activision?

DaReapa2d ago

No. Square Enix owns the IP.

Abnor_Mal2d ago

Oh okay, Activision owned True Crime, but when that didn’t sell as intended it was canceled. Six months later Square Enix bought the rights and changed the title to Sleeping Dogs.*

*As per Wikipedia

Sleeping Dogs was a sleeper hit back then. It was fantastic. It actually still is. Would love a sequel to this, or at least a revive of True Crime series.

Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-earth II - PC Wore it Better

Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle-earth II was an intriguing and unique RTS title, that sadly suffered in its console port.

dadavis19922d ago

Was just thinking about this game and wishing I had a way to revisit it. The way EA scrubs these titles from existence once their licensing runs out is horrid.

Michiel19892d ago

there is a client made by modders and it also works online.

kevco332d ago

Indeed. The game can still be played online on PC.

Xbox 360 players, though? Bang outta luck.
