Microsoft heads to gamescom in Germany to unveil Call of Duty: Ghosts blitz mode, Fable Legends and Fighter Within. Indie devs will also be receiving support of Xbox One development, as well showing off more on FIFA 14 and The Division.
Games...people can play. That's what it's about is it not?
Looks like Microsoft is also doing some great things for indie gaming on XB1.
It was funny to see the indie developers mention Sony as an example in Microsoft's indie segment. Hats off to MS for being good sports there. An indirect nod to Sony by MS.
WTF? how is it indirect when they directly mentioned sony's name? also that moment was extremely cringeworthy.
It's an indirect nod to Sony to say that, we concede, you got us here. The fact that they inserted that segment says it all. So yeah, reading comprehension....
Gamescom: The Most Exciting New PlayStation Titles http://www.ign.com/videos/2...
MS had nothing ground breaking to announce no wonder they chose to host some back room event
Sorry, but what did Sony showed that was ground breaking?
It's awesome because it's becoming the new Ouya
Nope,in my opinion the Sony conference wasn't ground breaking and also needed some new huge exclusive being revealed..I can't even pretend to be excited about any GC conference that happened today.
Lol I am not sure what people are talking about. Sony did not show anything groundbreaking either. Both MS and Sony did not.
nothing but they have it and we know it now
lol now all of a sudden indies are a bad thing.....ms fanboys reach BEYOND comprehension. nothing really ground breaking is true because they announced all that already....so instead of more of the same they showed new indie games, vita price drop, ps3 price drop, ps4 release dates...new info on announced games like infamous and GT, new lbp game for ps3.and more like twitch (something ms fanboys boasted about when announced for x1) they showed user interface for ps4 killzone mp....new remote play...I can go on. what did ms show? a busted fighting game and a online fable? gtfo.
I'll take 1 tripple A game and one potentially fun Kinect game over a bunch of side scrollers and indie games... personally. I think Sony's conference was way too showey... especially considering they didn't show anything that great. They played it up like crazy. the best part was the dashboard stuff at the very beginning. Why do I get the impression that Japanese people spoon-feed this showey crap to Americans because they think we like it? GET TO THE POINT! MS didn't showcase anything that great either... but the Indie support news was brief, concise, and great. Fable is good. Exclusive smartglass support is great. Bundles.... good stuff. Well played, I think.
Sonys Conference was a freaking YAWNFEST! They did no better than MS.
Not groundbreaking but great if you like games. Why do people expect the invention of the wheel at every conference. Its impossible to do, it costs money so you would think after micro announcing so many games already gamers would be satisfied to SEE those games in action rather than announcement after announcement of games way off in 2016 and so on. No matter which console you pick with the inclusion of great multis theres NO way either of theses consoles don't have enough to play for the next 18 months+. Lets not forget both are feature packed with more services at launch than any console weve ever seen. So then why complain, what do you want?
Still better than anything MS has to offer. http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Yawn & pfft @ pfft.
When will the XB1 go on sale? Sony already announced theirs.
Sony showed tons of game support coming from developers around the world whether it's indie, 3rd party and their big worldwide studios. Sony captured a big chunk of game developers to make games for their console. Now that is ground breaking.
free FIFA and new Fable are still better than not announcing any AAA games at all
really...lol stop reaching. new fable was expected and online only...free fifa....anyone with half a brain know you can buy a ps4 +fifa for less......smh @ xbots in denial.
The Reputation Management is strong with this one.
@Kingthrash360 "new fable was expected and online only" "online only" So are many of the other most anticipated games of next gen (The Division, The Crew, Titanfall, etc.) Like it or not, that's where games are heading sooner or later. It's just a matter of time and whether you're willing to accept it or not.
Oh right because we all know exhaustive budget status makes everything better right? Maximum focus on AAA is what has been ruining studios this entire generation. There are in general better concepts and original GAMEPLAY ideas coming from indie developers than most AAA launch titles on Xbox One. I thought gameplay was more important than anything, and that is what indies provide in spades. But that's besides the point. You're just trolling.
you have to preorder to get fifa free and only in europe also buying a ps4 plus fifa is still cheaper than buying the xbox one on its own.
What did you want them to do? Spend over 50+ minutes talking about indie games and other exclusives that have already been announced? If I wanted to buy a console that supports indie games and doesn't have Netflix behind a paywall, i'll save $299 and buy an OUYA.
Oya can play uncharted n last of us to right?lol xbots brains
Twitch seems to think otherwise.
So unless it's a huge AAA IP it doesn't matter to you really and not ground breaking. I thought Rime and Murisakibaby were crazy cool...Journey wasn't a huge AAA title but it left a huge impact on the industry. What has MS really brought to the table?
That's why i said both events weren't ground breaking in my opinion..I guess that's my fault for expecting more huge software to be revealed at GC..The indie announcements were cool but they weren't huge killer reveals as many people are making them out to be...MS didn't have anything ground breaking that's why they hid in some closed back room.
yeah because sony conference was so interesting...NOT Microsoft crushed Sony at Gamescom.
In what way? How many new games did Sony announce VS. Microsoft.
How could MS "crush" Sony when MS did not have any conference in the first place?
What the hell is with this article? MS didn't have any conference. In fact, it was a last minute decision to not have a stage presentation at all and just send out overnight announcements. You want to talk about WEAK! Then they send their damage control zombies out to comment the hell out of N4G, and PR themselves to *WINNING*! Still no-show at FCC and launching in 13 countries versue the PS4 in 32 countries. This slow motion train wreck continues in excruciating crunchiness.
@ 2.43 i want them to be like sony
lol at that part haha little by little they are becoming like Sony.
sorry 2 mins 53 sec lol that hurts
Those poor people were turning around for half an hour, looking for the camera and they didn't find it. Next time, somebody please tell them where to look.
No release date?
i pressed play and the Greatness Awaits trailer started playing lol
I hate Fifa why couldn't they give people in Europe Call Of Duty instead
Sony had alot of games to reviel say next year and the year after so on so fourth, xbox maybe two years of game's then what kinect games I reckon and extra tv crap
MS is focusing on having many launch games, but might have issues later on. Although not as critical as Wii U at all. It will be interesting to see what they will show at next year's E3. Sony is focusing on Indie games at launch, but will have more games later on. They are holding their biggest studios' announcements for next year, which will give them chance to spread out the games for the first and second year. IMO, next generation will really begin until next year. Games releasing fall of 2014 will be the ones that are going to start showing potential, all the way to summer 2015. However, I hope that neither Sony or MS put all their eggs on the indie and F2P basket, which is already happening.
Who disagreed with you? Honestly? You make very good points and we all know first-generation launch titles aren't that great but are good enough as hold-me-off titles. Still, Starbound coming to PS4 is huge... just huge!
Ms got a lot more studio's this time around. I doubt they will have problems later on.
What issues will MS have later on?
Halo, Titanfall, Quantum break I think they'll be fine. edit: I forgot Fable @cyguarion people are disagreeing becuase he said "MS is focusing on having Many launch games, but might have issues later on"
"While others have shifted their message and changed their story, we were consistant in maintaining policies and a model that is fair and in tune with consumer desires," House said. what more can i say
perhaps, as a gamer, you could recognize the fact that ms did bring plenty of games for the launch. I thought that it was all about games for all u sony fanatics, but I guess its really about hating on ms no matter what.
Actually it is all about the games and always will be. I'm loving this new for the gamer approach MS is taking. They just know how to bring good games with features I simply love. If they can keep bringing good games throughout this generation by taking chances I will forget about the disappointments I had with my 360. XB0 day one!!!!
Is the only reason they've uploaded it now is so they could edit out the booing? Serious question.
Considering the room only had people from the industry, I don't think you would have many boos.
the indie news s amazing,, free dev kits, no fees, no restrictions, not bad
Fable sounds and looked intriguing, i wonder how being the hero or the villain will work out.
CGI, CGI and more CGI... grrr
COD finally has dedicated servers...so? Many other (and better) FPS games supported this years ago.
Wow!!!! This conference was waaaaaaayyyy more professional than Sonys. Was it me or were the characters from ac4 moving their mouths after done speaking? They can't be lag related because I'm watching their video. Mine never skipped. Anyways, yeah this conference is legit. They had their day one games playable. I wish I was there. Also we get the best exclusives. Idc about 60 min if extra watch dogs gameplay. Lol ill just watch it on YouTube. If that character doesn't get more than one suit in the game then I'm calling BS! Xbox! Day one! <<<< I'm lame
Wow. What a troll. 1) Professionalism is apparently better than games? Lots and lots of games. 2) The video backdrop in general was out of sync. 3) Sony also has their day one games playable. Pretty sure about that. 4) Best exclusives. LOL. Despite the fact that that is completely opinion based, yeah inFamous Second Son looks better than any XB1 exclusive. Visually, gameplay-wise, story, characters, and pretty much any other aspect. And that is not the only exclusive that will be out in the PS4's generational lifecycle. 5) Sony secures REAL exclusive content, and Microsoft secures TIMED exclusive content. You go ahead and watch it on YouTube - I'll play it, then I'll play the timed exclusive content once it reaches PS4 in the not too distant future. Watch_Dogs, AC4, Mad Max, Batman: Arkham Origins, Destiny. And look forward to more. 6) You're calling BS? Hey guys, watch out.
Since when is second place a good thing? You are willing to wait because you have to wait. Sonys conference was trash. No wonder you love them. You also have no class yourself. Out of all the ps4 exclusives you want to talk about infamous...... Ok wow I have a destroyable Lego environment to play on. Everything falls apart like Lego blocks. So you didn't just hear Microsoft announce FIFA legends? Giving away a copy of FIFA to European consumers? Then you say they are only "timed" exclusives. That's not my problem. Obviously. There is no way infamous is better than dr3. Also since that game is so good. Lets hear some facts about these characters and story lines..... Etc
1) Isn't "second place" people said about the 360, now it's officially in third, Xbox One is relegated to second place against PS4 this generation by a landslide. Microsoft's fault, not yours. Don't let it get you down. 2) Sony's conference announced a crap ton of games. Only an Xbox troll would display their sensitivity by (A) saying it was trash and (B) hate on indie games like they are not more creative and fun that most AAA games on the market. Obviously... Indie games are absolute trash unless Microsoft makes a deal about them, or if they are (of course) a relevant part of PS4. Even Tequila Works' new first-party indie game RIME, looked more unique and amazing than any XB1 game on display: http://www.youtube.com/watc... 3) Trolling is not very classy either. Personal attacks? I'd beg to differ - I'm more classy by not supporting a disgustingly anti-consumer corporation - the same company that tried to f*** you over, destroy your ownership and resell rights, have complete control over your purchases, using the required and always-listening Kinect to gather advertising data so they can personalise your dashboard with ads on a service you are paying for........ ........ and a million + 1 other ass-backward policies that they changed to save their asses after the TRULY CLASSY folk who have integrity and self-respect told them where to shove it. The company that is still charging you annually for 90% of the features of your console, free apps, and charging you $60 for incomplete games (Forza 5) and ripping you off with micro-transactions (Ryse) and charging $5 for characters in a fighting (Killer Instinct) game that will only have a sub-par number of characters. Incomplete??? Exactly. Anti-consumer is Microsoft's game, and they don't hide it very well. 4) If I mentioned any PS4 exclusive you would still go to town on it, so why should I bother? Trashing inFamous: Second Son (the game that factually trashes every other XB1 game out and about, AS previously mentioned) says more about you than I can. 5) Fifa, wow. A game i haven't had interest in - in like... ever. Not my interest. I'd rather spend money on actually worthy multiplatform games like Watch_Dogs, Destiny, AC4, than get given a game I have no interest in for free. 6) It's not your problem? Well having content early is a perk, sure. But yeah i'll have that content to play after I've played my actual exclusive content that you know you're never going to get. What is better? What is worse? "There is no way infamous is better than dr3" Fantastic. Why not? Zombie hordes?? Next. If you are asking me about characters and story in an inFamous game, you clearly haven't played any of them. You're a perfect troll. Keep it up.
How was it more professional? The whole having a crowd in 360 degrees around them seemed pretty cheesy to me. And trash talking your competition is pretty pathetic. And anyone with common sense knows indie development on a Microsoft platform is a joke. All of the crap they're saying is PR crap. Indie developers saying they want to release updates on the fly? LMAO, go for PC then, because game companies have to pay a ton of money to release updates on both consoles.
Don't be a hater.
They "out of sync" you mentioned was present on the feed even with people talking on stage. MS more professional? Opinion. People just lazing around listening to MS humming a similar Kinect and exclusive content tune... A tune that was very different at E3. A whole different genre in fact.
Where is the XBone launch date, MS?
The Fable game sounds interesting, but I wish they would have shown some type of actual gameplay. Seems like it's supposed to be an MMO, but can't really tell. Either way, I doubt it will compete with FFXIV: ARR. Played the beta and it was amazing. It could have been on Xbox One if it weren't for Microsoft's policies.
It's a 4 player coop game from what I've read.
I gotta say can you imagine the pressure on Phil's back after American E3 disaster... Gamescom was way better than E3 for MS... Europeans getting the Xbox early are lucky...
