Oh boy, now THIS is going to be interesting. I'm betting we're not going to hear about it till E3 2011 though. Now what MS is saying is all good in theory (except for the MOARZ SHOOTERZ parts), but the question still remains, are they capable of delivering?

Their biggest failing for me this year game wise, was the fact that they did not advertise Alan Wake as they should've. They say that it fits the Xbox portfolio, but how can you not support something you say is special to you?

Good post. AW deserved more, both from MS and from consumers.

Amped 3
Blood Wake 2
Conker 3 or 4
Crimson Skies 2
Daytona 2 or 3 (partner with Sega)
Kameo 2
Mech Assault 3
Propeller Arena (partner with Sega)
Quantum Redshift 2
Shenmue 3 (fully fund Sega to make this happen!!!)

I am sure some of those others may be interested in as well and some will never see the light of day. One can only hope.

M$ has come out swinging since the shake up with one big announcement after another. The TGS announcements have been huge in terms of getting Japanese devs involved with Xbox 360 and Kinect. They also have Windows 7 phone and there return to the PC platform starting with Fable 3, Age of empires...etc. M$ is being very aggressive and I can't wait for some new game announcements.

@Clizz...I agree...Alan Wake was disappointing in terms of sales. M$ completely pulled the plug on that game in terms of advertising...right around the time of the " retiring " Robbie Bach situation. There must be some reason M$ did that, but so far no one is saying. The fact that AW 2 hasn't been announced is also odd. Remedy really has to step up with this next dlc...M$ spent a small fortune on AW and Remedy including the whole Bright Falls mini-series. We'll see what happens when the writer DLC is released. They should of put out a demo like this...

I think many people would of bought a copy. As a matter of fact if they released every episode/chapter for $9.99 ( 6 chapters in all )...they would of had a blockbuster hit, that I'm sure...the game is great and the first 5 chapters are real nail bitters.

Regardless, M$ is really impressing me lately. They have decided to grab the bull by the horns. I think the hardcore are in for a treat. Can't say I like the increase in fees for XBL and the deleting of the 800 points cards but this year has been one of the best years yet for 360...if Ghost Recon and Gears of War had come out it would of been perfect.

No fake? Ofc you think that. You're a 360 fanboy! :p

bjornbear3006d ago

Halo doesn't top goldeneye (for what goldeneye was at the time)

HL does...but Halo no =/

theres Goldeneye...then theres Halo

don't even go there...

Unicron3006d ago

It won't have the mass market penetration of Halo.

Then they'll make Halo 4.

r2kcipher3006d ago (Edited 3006d ago )

hehe you said penetration hehe....

But, you're right. Unless they say no more halo for a while buy this game instead, in the commercial or something.

edoman203006d ago

yeah penetration, double penetration XD
