On March 6th Microsoft filed an application to trademark “LXP” that turned out to be the acronym of Leap Experience Pioneers, a new first party development studio based in the US
This is good. Nice to hear they're still expanding their First Party portfolio.
Guranteed they are the studio doing the "cloud demo" for E3 phil talked about. The question is, will this team make their own games or be used just for first party (and 3rd party) assistance for cloud based projects? . . The name of the group makes it all but a given for me. But maybe I am assuming a bit too quickly, guess we will see.
Nice logo. I hope they working on something huge. An ambitious AA game wouldnt be a bad idea.
I hope they are allowed to finish the game that Black Tusk had to drop for Gears of War.
Good viral marketing
It's good that they are expanding their first party. Curious to see what comes out of it.
Sounds like kinect, kinect frogger. I'd buy it
With the lack of Kinect games, some how I doubt that. Most of the games on XB1 seem to be traditional mid level production valued games *to* huge AAAs EDIT Yes it sounds good. Reminds me of some sort of Sci-fi or supernatural epic. As for being a symbolic name, it screams epic new journey.
It'd fit into the old 360 tagline 'jump in'
I'm a sucker for scifi games, count me in
My mind immediately went to Office Space, and the 'Jump: to Conclusions" mat lol
http://www.neogaf.com/forum... "LEAP, however, is more nebulous: it's an "incubation team," identified as "the people that developed Kinect and profoundly changed the way people interact with technology." It sounds like some kind of think tank for games -- but one that is making a game right now, as it needs a level designer."
The name sounds like they just had 3 people say 3 different words and made them into the title.
started with a cool acronym then figured out what it meant when they filed the trademark
LXP sounds very ambitious. I hope they make some awesome games. and I really like that Logo animation haha.
kinect games, hahaha, they have been working for kinect games for years, you guys know how many kinect games have been in developments? Lots! They haven't shown them because of the bad press kinect have had since the reveal of xbone.
Hope they show dance central 3 to be honest my FAM loves that game need a few kimect games. Plus you already know they're bringing the big guns
Not sure if troll or..
Hmm...maybe that's where they are sending Santa Monica and Irrational Games former employees that signed on....
so microsoft is still expanding and they named as pioneers ,so it must be good and means more exclusive games for xbox one.
Good move on MS. Keep them comming!
MS really seem to be working hard to secure exclusives. THIS is why we need competition! I genuinely hope the xbone performs well so Sony doesn't get complacent.
