Looking at the kickstarter, it doesn't look like they are on pace to hit their goal. Perhaps if it was $100,000? That, or if it actually had "SOCOM" in the name, but sadly Sony owns that IP.

BattleAxe3993d ago

Come on people, where is the Socom fanbase when we need them? Help support the H-Hour kickstarter!

Journalists need to spread this info. It should help gain more support.

REAL13993d ago

We seriously need this. I hope it really happens.

JordanCabot3993d ago (Edited 3993d ago )

I think we should follow them on social media websites and people will also come to know about them.

Still have to play this game

SkatterBrain1612d ago (Edited 1612d ago )

whats XGP? sounds like an early 90s game system , Buy the new Nicon: XGP with turbo 34 Graffix , XGP-The way its meant to be played

timotim1612d ago

I think every new studio acquisition at XGS has come out and spoke about how they are able to retain creative freedom. This is good news to hear...looking forward to their next project.

@captaintravel
"You also said Ninja Theory is an indie developer and many other unflattering comments."

That's my opinion. A lot of their past games feels unfinished or missing depth. I thought DMC was their best game

timotim1612d ago

Yeah, his onstage bit with Matt Booty about working on Office was funny as hell.

I love Tim haha

ScootaKuH1611d ago

Rare? Let's be honest, under Microsoft Rare aren't what they were. Also what about the Fable devs?

darthv721612d ago

MS has been very hands off this gen and that will continue on into next gen. They want the studios to deliver the best of their ideas without "micro" managing.

yeah i hope they dont make good studios work on gimmicky things then close them down like lionhead studios and sony with evolution studios, that fable kinect and Psvr Rigs/Driveclub vr .... i really hope if Dreams doesnt sell that sony will keep Media Molecule i loved the little big planet games but so far the games in dreams feel a little unfinished

DaDrunkenJester1612d ago

Well luckily they don't seem to have any gimmicks yet like a Kinect for this gen. Seems like they are more focused on their content delivery through the services and need big and small devs to provide a constant stream of games.

rainslacker1612d ago

Lionhead was one of those situations where maybe MS should have had more of a hand in reigning in creativity. Molyneux is kind of one of those people who doesnt set limits on his own expectations based on what's actually possible to accomplish

"Molyneux is kind of one of those people who doesnt set limits on his own expectations based on what's actually possible to accomplish"

He left Microsoft after Mattrick "forced" him into making a Fable Kinect game! After his departure Lionhead couldn´t create nothing relevant or very exciting. I think Playground will be a better studio than Lionhead ever could be without Molyneux.

My two cents.

SkatterBrain1612d ago

the studios from the past use to complain about how controlling microsoft was

gangsta_red1612d ago

I know Lionhead was vocal about MS wanting a specific Fable from them, the Kinect one and then the 4 vs 1 Fable that got cancelled. And they even pitched a darker more mature Fable game to MS that they rejected in order for them to work on the ones I mentioned.

thatguyhayat1612d ago

Im pretty sure bungie expressed themselves too but Lionhead studios were all over social media saying how frustrating it was working for Microsoft

DaDrunkenJester1612d ago

Yeah, I feel like MS has changed a lot with this new leadership though. Seems like all their devs are expressing they have creative freedom. You see The Coalition being able to expand Gears in new ways with Tactics, Pop, and even change up Gears 5 formula a bit.

I'm hoping we see 343 expand a bit and do some side stuff outside of Chief after Infinite.

thatguyhayat1612d ago

DaDrunkenJester

The leadership was the same. Lionhead studios was still under Phils management but after the game awards they've taken the right step. We'll see how it goes

King_Noctis1612d ago

Yeah but we are talking about the present though, and MS had learnt a lot from their past.

I mean, if you have to ask “like what?” then I don’t think you have actually been following any news at all.
