Next month, Microsoft will be demoing Gears of War 2, Fable 2, Ninja Gaiden 2 and more at its 2008 Spring Showcase event, according to press invitation Kombo received from the publisher today.
As pleased as I am about most of these games, it would be nice for them to announce something new. Getting tired of all these sequels to existing franchises. But, it should be awesome to at least see GoW2 in action finally, rather than just screenshots and tech demos of what it WILL look like.
is E3 in may? Why not wait for E3.
I am sure Microsoft must have something planned for E3 Silellak, by that I emna a new IP or atleast a new sequel. They [MS] like owning E3. I am a PS3 fanboy and I can pretty much tell you to rest assured.
I actually do not mind. GeoW 2 and NG2 will be sick.
this ought to be good
MS is on it's second gen console, you remember when PS2 came out and how many sequals? MS is technically 6-7 years behind in big (brand name)franchises... You get 1-2 games from 1 franchise a Console Generation. There is like a 3 year Gap between next installments from the time they start production. But MS never really talk about games until they surprise you, as I remember that with the TGS, where they showed only Holiday treats.
well cant wait to see gears. hope for alan awake
Alan Wake > Gears in MY hype scale.
Bubble Breakfast, I have said this too. Gears of War is meh and very basic, Alan Wake seems more in depth.
NOt so since no one alive on this site has played alan awake. Gears on the other hand has a few million plus following and sure those guys, including moi will be more than happy to see it. ALthough my own preference was single player rather than the multiplayer of gears. Edit:Btw not disagreed with any of u above.
"Next month, Microsoft will be demoing Gears of War 2, Fable 2, Ninja Gaiden 2 and more" I can just imagine... Journalist: We were told there would be Gears of War 2, Fable 2, Ninja Gaiden 2 and more.... Microsoft PR: Yeah, and what's wrong? Journalist: Where's the "more" part? Microsoft PR: ........ I make jokes! I just needed to have a bit of a dig. Dig my disagree button if you don't like it >
nice to hear
Alan Wake I reckon is one of them and maybe more exclusives?
Alan Wake hasn't had a release date, not even any public appearance then some fly by'. They will probably wait E3 to debut news about Alan Wake, and I really don't care about Fable, then didn't even deliver on the first one.
i hope they show alan wake too, and GoW2 and fable should be intresting, also sony are announcing home release and hopefully more cool stuff. i cant wait to see what both have to offer
Alan Wake is going to crush PS3. When these fanboy idiots finally see how amazing it looks and runs on 360 hardware, they will shut their fanboy mouths talking sh1t about how 360 was maxed-out YEARS AGO with Gears lmfao. Idiots. UltraDumb, Actually Fable 1 was awesome. U suck.
@2.3 Speaking of maxed out, this is what Kojima said about the PS3 and MGS4: "I remember saying three years ago that we wanted to create soething revolutionary, but in reality we couldn't really do that because of the CPU. We're using the Cell engine to its limit., actually." No one has said anything about 'maxing' the Xbox 360. But here is Kojima saying he couldnt get his game done because of the PS3's design choices... hm, kind of ironic isnt it.
-actually, you misinformed possessor of that ultra garbage RROD machine, Epic very clearly stated last year that the first Gears of War maxxed out the 360. Personally, I love extremely graphics intensive games on the 360...burns the pin connectors right off the 'ol motherboard. Enjoy frying your breakfast eggs on your 360 while you play Alan Wake (puh-lease)...before the three lights come, that is. Gimme a Break!
when u show evidence of epic STATTING gears maxed out 360 i will believe you but until then STFU stop sayng sh!t delay this gen beyond phoney
I like the way Alan? runs. http://uk.youtube.com/watch... It was all shown on the PC, I wouldn't be surprised if the graphics was dumbed down in the 360 version, they probably will be.
Why does microsoft even bother holding this event they got nothing worth sh*t to show anyway.
sweet, cant wait for Fable 2
Alan Wake, PLEASE.
I actually want Max Payne 3 over Alan Wake. Hopefully, Remedy has a team on MP3 right now.
alan wake will be on pc 2 right?
Yes it is!, you should buy it on PC so MSFT has more money to work with when it comes to Xbox, Windows and Zune etc. Kind of like me saying I'm getting GT5 on PSP lol.
GT5 work was cancelled for the PSP. Well I'm glad the superior version of Alan Wake will be on PC, at least don't have to deal with that big failure Vista, oh wait..
@domultra Yeah, Vista is the 2nd most used OS on the planet. Some "failure"... tool.
all this ps3 girls are going to buy alan wake for the pc cuz they know they love our games
Hey, at least I can play all your good exclusives without owning an XBox 360 :P
@Watdafck Still a Microsoft product, neithertheless. Tried to be smart, but you failed. One way or the other, you'd still be supporting Microsoft. It's not a bad thing. :P
about Alan Wake. I think that might be my most anticipated MS title coming. Less is known about that game than KZ2. The premise seem awesome though and the screens have looked great as well. I can't wait to see Gears as well. I'm sure that will look good too. Anyone know when Sony's Gamers Day is? Isn't that also in May? Should be a good month for gaming. Then comes E3. This years E3 is going to rock.
After the Demo. Several Articles shall be up on this site. and a Fanboy flamefest shall commence. ill be at the party! everyone is invited
i will be there :) delay beyond phoney
What a big joke we at Microsoft have become,we used up all our ammo way too soon,and now we have nothing but Gears Of War 1.5 which won't be any better than the first one,so Shane Kim strongly recommends all of you to pick up a PLAYSTATION®3 before it's too late and we dissapoint you all like we did with the original Xbox. $hane
Lmfao this is funny stuff.
LoL @ Shane welcome to the darkside :p
Nope you are wrong Jason just look at this dumbass's profile. He used his other name from N4G as his PS3tag. PS3 Tag: Wario420 This is that Wario420 guy. What an idiot.
Get off of N4G. Douche bag. What are you, four? Gears 2 will be amazing. You're just too afraid to admit it. Are you that scared? Go back to your RFOM articles. If any game is a 1.5, that would be R"2".
I'd like to see some info on Alan Wake, seems to be a great game. It might make me jump in depending on how it goes.
I think we can put Banjo 3 in the lineup, cause it been speculated since the beginning of this year.
maybe we'll see some banjo kazooie, alan wake, and halo wars. Damn its a good year to be a gamer.
They better have it in a concrete building with 2 hour fire rating. They're going to need it with all those 360's burning up LOL!!!!!!!
In this case I hope that they'll keep secret at least a surprise for the E3.
I don't think so... X0_ is usually done in the fall.
for the 360 this year. I think 2008 will surpass 2007!
Lance Link: Secret Chimp.
In other words, this year 360 is set to destroy PS3 once again.
hahahaha Learn what your talking about kid. Xbox 360 lost in sales last year and it's losing even worse this year. Xbox 360 just had a price cut in Europe like 2 weeks ago and can be bought for 200$ now and is STILL getting stomped by the 400-500$ PS3. Your delusional, Xbox 360 is getting teabagged, HARD. Get ready, It's sersiouly going to continue getting MUCH better for the PS3. It isn't even close to a consumer friendly price yet. It should be at 300$ by September or so. 360 will be getting SMOKED. No seriously ...write this down and quote me. Right now PS3 has been winning by about 250,000 a month in worldwide sales... When the PS3 becomes 300$... it will be closer to 500,000. Wait and see. And Xbox 360 sales will decline(Like they have every year since launch... even while becoming cheaper) HAHAHAHAHHA Learn what you're talking about. Xbox 360 has a 5.5 million lead because it had a full year on the market to itself... and still sold like absolute garbage. PS3 is goingt o be out until 2015 or 2016. PS3 is going to win by ALOTTTTTT when it's all said and done. LOL Stop pretending like 360 is secretly winning something. It's not. It's completely FLOPPING and selling like garbage... even only beating the Extremely expensive PS3 by only 5K in the U.S.... and losing the first 2 months... it's hilarious. Xbox 360 sales have FLOPPED. This is it's time to get as much of a lead as it can. By the end of this year PS3 sersiouly is going to be about 300$... and 360 will not be able to compete... mark my words... and every other analysts.
U talk too much. Why is it, it takes you pages of text just to prove a point? Hard when defending the PoS3, eh? Owned. Go make another account, n00b.
oh man shush will you 360 is NOT going to destroy PS3, PS3 is NOT going to destroy which ever version of xbox. i own and love both consoles but all u fanboys have to live with the fact no console is going to kill the other one, although 360 is seriously on its last legs this year M$ need to do something fast.
ali trhe brit go crawl back into that bucket u cane out from when u were 1st conccieve into this wolrd u swine u are the type of ps3 droid i hate u think ur smart but ur stealth fanboy wont work ps3droid
LEARN HOW TO FU*KING SPELL. YOU SOUND DUMB AS HELL. DAMN! FU*KIN DOUCHE BAG!
All those little girls do is post comments like to stoke the flames of the fanboy/girl war. They need something to fill their time-can't play viva pinata with RROD. But yeah, if you compare global sales of the 2 consoles PS3 has always won hands down. They have sold more consoles 2 yrs. in then MS did. I thought about getting a 360 after the price drop for Gears2, then I thought, no, I can still upgrade my PC and make it a hell of a lot better with 250$. I'll wait for this to come out on PC, like every other good 360 exclusive does, and it will be better.
"But yeah, if you compare global sales of the 2 consoles PS3 has always won hands down. They have sold more consoles 2 yrs. in then MS did." The POS3 hasn't been out for 2 years. And it is dead last in install base. That's all you need to know and is certainly what the developers/publishers are looking at. Wait, your a fishead what am I saying of course you lie and make up stuff it's part of the conditioning. Carry on Taxi Driver.
You guys smust be so addicted to waiting. Keep waiting for 360 ports for your ps3 and pcs and we would have finished the game and moved on to other games. Can any of you guys claim to have played or tried 60+ games on this gen consoles? K333333333333333333P waiting B3yond.
Dude, move along. This isn't your artical. Go jack off to Ratchet and Clank.
That "and more" part better be a hell of a lot more and it better knock some sock's off. MS has been very quiet since last E3 and their "focus on the holiday lineup" is long over. It's time to let the cat out of the bag and get the fans pumped for some great unknown titles, preferably exclusive. We have a nice lineup now, but this is no time to hold back.
Alan Wake, Splinter Cell: Conviction, & A.P.B. news as well.
Gears of War 2. I'm not so interested in the other titles.
Can't wait to see how far along it is. No need to see Gears, just waiting for release with anticipation.
Gaystation 3 is always waiting beyond, with the worst ports and even worse exclusives A indian corner-shop pricetag and overall crappy quality no wonder 360 will win in the end
man your one sour little fanboy arnt u. yes ps3 got a few bad ports but nowadays devs develop for BOTH consoles next to each other such as burnout or GTA and there right off the top of my head, and 360 will NEVER win, a NEW xbox may but even im not stupid enough to think the now outdated hardware of the 360 can beat the PS3's when the ps3 is using 10-20% of its power to run a game and the 360 uses all of its power and then RRoD's
but I'm looking forward to hear more about Alan Wake, and at least watch some footage...
fable is over rated but i have high hopes for part 2 part one was fun and pretty but veeery bland the story sucked and it was too easy it was very short and didnt deliver half of what good old pete was aspiring to do... i hope this one is twice as long and twice as pretty but.. what ive seen the graphics are lookin kinda not as revolutionary as the first one was on the original xbox. like i said ...im an xbot...cant stand the ps3...but this is supposed to be a marquee attraction to the xbox...graphics wise its not knockin my sox off.. it looks like lionhead will not pull it off again..im hopin im wrong cuz we need as many aaa titles as possible this year
LEt the games begin..again
Its about time. Microsoft has been pretty secretive on its goings on since January. I mean, spring is coming to an end and still no Pirates vs Ninjas! Lets get it cracking Microsoft!
Just like they did 2005, 06,and 07! HA HA HA HA!
Can't wait to see more on the games listed and what games they have to surprise us with.. Hopefully some Too Human and Alan Wake... and BK2!!
