Either: Perfect Dark, Killer Instinct, Conker and maybe just maybe, you never know, KOTOR or....Duke Nukem LOL.

Duke Nukem Forever. If it takes them forever to just make the game, it'd take them 2 forevers to make it multiplatform, hence the decision of making it Xbox 360 exclusive. /s

It may be Rare's game but it's hard to tell in the end. It isn't something mindblowing though.

Finger Crossed for Conquer or Killer Instict3

Bigpappy3108d ago

I know it was announced Multi-plat, but money talks.

avengers19783108d ago

Just a thought wouldn't Nintendo Have the rights to Killer Instinct.
Perfect Dark, Conquer, rumors for prototype, and sadly DMC(but I think that one will stay multiplat)

jden283108d ago

I Think that it has to be either a game we haven't seen this gen at all or 1 that was previously not a MS title because there making a big deal out of it being exclusive and if it was already something that would be exclusive to them because they already owned the rights to it then it really wouldn't be that big of a suprise, but if were another title that they gimped from sony or nintendo then that would be a suprise and a big event something to be excited about like they said they were.

DOMination3108d ago

My predictions are that it'll be either something from Square-Enix as they are loving the 360 right now - maybe Kingdom Hearts, Parasite Eve or Final Fantasy VII remake or a new Syndicate from Lionhead.

FragGen3108d ago

Duke Nukem was my first thought as well. :)

AAACE53108d ago (Edited 3108d ago )

It will be a product from Rare! I've been leaning towards PD 2 which is why I believe they released PD 1 to get people familiar with the origins of the franchise. But then again, the 360 is seriously lacking in the platformer arena. So Conker or something could make an appearance. I'm not sure if they will try to make a new KI game since fighting games are hit or miss this gen. But a port of a past KI to XBLA is very possible and I would expect an update similar to PD.

I said it before and i'll say it again, I think this will be one of the best years in gaming we have had in a while! We have already been hit with a bunch of great games and we are still early in the year!

EDIT: @Thereaperson 2.2... I forgot about Mech Assault, that was a good one! I'd like for them to make a new one, but seeing how they didn't think the game was popular enough to download in Xbox originals, I kind of doubt they will make a new one. Hopefully they do make one... at least a download!

EDIT 2: The more I think of it, the way it's phrased, it doesn't mean a past Xbox franchise will be the topic! It could be a franchise coming from anywhere! Why else would they say coming as an exclusive?

Pumbli3107d ago

Would you please stop calling him Conquer.

It's Conker, not Conquer, Conker.

N4BmpS3107d ago

I'm gonna go wit Perfect Dark on this one, since it was released[Perfect Dark 1] on XBLA and the feedback has been well received yeah logic talks loud (speculation talks louder)

LastDance3107d ago

Even if it were another perfect dark or killer you really think RARE could actually make them GOOD?...

Here are my 5 best bets:

1. Killer Instict 2
2. Mech Assult
3. Brute Force
5. Perfect Dark

Parapraxis3108d ago

Killer Instinct is what I thought, Perfect Dark is also very likely.

thereapersson3108d ago

I'm hoping for MechAssault or Killer Instinct 2

Rainstorm813108d ago

Brute Force?........I thought they said "substantial" not sub-standard

The Maxx3108d ago

"Brute Force?........I thought they said "substantial" not sub-standard"

LOL that was funny. +bubbles

NotSoSilentBob3108d ago

There is a Mechwarrior/assault game in development.

MW5/Reboot. Although it doesn't have a publisher Smith & Tinker are developing the game in the spirit of the old Mech Warrior games as in the Mechwarrior 2 series.

I hope it is actually an "exclusive" unlike sc:c.

Parapraxis3108d ago (Edited 3108d ago )

don't know why you are getting disagrees... I mean, there's even a mobile version of SCC.

EDIT: Wow you guys take sh*t way too serious. Oh and Cold 2000, you are the epitome of pathetic.

Cold 20003108d ago (Edited 3108d ago )

Cuz both of you PS3 trolls in a 360 thread.
Well the one above is a PC troll lol.

@parapraxis: What ?! Cant hear you through your tears!

zeeshan3108d ago (Edited 3108d ago )

^Oh look, the mother of all the trolls is calling other people troll. That is sooooooo unlike you Cold -- oh wait...!!

GiantEnemyCrab3108d ago

Because you only play exclusives? If it's not an exclusive it's suddenly less of a game?

What kind of weird brand whore game player are you?

k-Lan3108d ago

"Oh look, the mother of all the trolls is calling other people troll. That is sooooooo unlike you Cold -- oh wait...!!"

LOL! This coming from ANOTHER PS troll with all of you being in the 360 section! God i love PS fanboys!!

Oh and this Parapraxis guy trying to make himself feel better buy showing 360 owners that SC:C is playable on other platforms. LOL! We have 360's dumb ass! Why would we care?? How about picking the game up for your PS3? Ummmmm... wait a sec. I guess you'll have to settle for the PC or MOBILE version. lmao!! OH crap.. i forgot you have too many games to play! lmao!!

I think these losers would choose a PS3 exclusive over sex with the hottest chick in the world.

Whats up with you guys sounding all insecure lately ?

edit: (lol ok)

Lucreto3108d ago

Sony has just come to an end of the huge amount of heavy hitters over the last few months some fanboys are getting a little nervous so there has been an announcement of a exclusive or a rumored exclusive nearly everyday this last week and with Splinter Cell out it is just rubbing it in.

I have playstation leanings and I am a little envious of some of these games being announced.

Parapraxis3108d ago (Edited 3108d ago )

Yeah Lucreto , it's not like Sony still has anything like GT5 to come out this year.

EDIT: I disagree with your post below, you are still forgetting some big games like The Last Guardian and FFXIV, plus as usual Sony will announce a few @ E3, R3 and a new Killzone are very likely.

I must have missed all these exclusive announcements from MS, all I see is Gears 3. That's 1 game lol.

Lucreto3108d ago

I haven't forgotten GT5 but we knew about a lot more PS3 exclusives this time last year compared to this year.

k-Lan3108d ago

Parapraxis is a hurting dude. lol! Cry more.

MS is going all out this year after such a quiet time last year.


You make it sound like MS had an option last year, it wasn't quiet because they were saving or something, they just don't have enough first party to support, and if this situation proceed, MS may have a quiet 2010 too.

Just look at 2010 lineup. From all those exclusives MS prepared for 2010 (Fable 3, Halo Reach, Crackdown 2, Alan Wake, Splinter Cell Conviction and Mass Effect 2) two are already rumored to come PS3 down the line, the same two that are also on PC (not dissing it, I personally count those as kind of exclusive, just like The Agency or DC Universe on PS3).

If SC and ME really come to PS3, so what. 2010 360's lineup of exclusive is 4~5 games? I can name 5 PS3 exclusives for 3 months of 2010 of the top of my head! If they don't come to PS3, Sony still has announced games enough to surpass this lineup and E3 is yet to roll (to both consoles indeed).

EDIT: WKC, MAG, Y3, HR and GOW3... Just in case.
