TMC: The Major won't spill the beans yet, but according to him there's something really, really good coming next week.
What first person shooter or Kinect casual game could it be!!?? I'm on pins and needles in anticipation. No, really, I am. And on a side note, anyone find it strange that Major Nelson looks shockingly a lot like Doug llewelyn from People's Court? http://i.ytimg.com/vi/Jqlbp... It's always struck me as strange that the last time we heard from him was in the brilliantly under appreciated film, "The Ice Cream Man".
Hmmm? All over the place with hate? Is the 360 nothing but a hardcore console or a casual console? Make up your minds. There's no use trying to guess or in your case imply what it is when the announced exclusive 2011 games don't even include a FPS. Trying to spin the successful Kinect getting more support in 2011 as bad is childish. What I find strange is you think trolling 360 articles will stop the 360's success and momentum with desperate smearing on little o'l N4G. In one of these events Microsoft will probably start showing and hyping Kingdoms because it's a high profile game internally.
we dont even know its title. and it only achieved "high profile" status due to lack of xbox exclusives and fanboys like you.. having said that, i am not saying it isnt good. we just know very very little about this game to say anything yet. For new games, shouldnt get your hopes up. remember TGS, GDC, VGA??? we barely got anything. EDIT @below Its Crytek Budapest. its not their main studio. its their brand new studio which only created "Crysis Warhead" which wasnt high profile and didnt get high ratings either. what you are doing is same as comparing Bethesda who created fallout to Bethesda who created "wet"
Or maybe because it's made by the same people who did Far Cry and Crysis? Two extremely high profile games.
@Tina hey nice to see you again. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
@DualConsoleOwner Not sure your comparison works really well there. Crysis Budapest is a studio developed by the main Crytek offices. Yes it is a subsidiary but ultimately controlled by Crytek Studios. Much akin to Rockstar and their various studios such as Rockstar North, Rockstar San Diego, and so forth. Also Crysis Warhead currently holds an 84 on metacritic which is a very respectable score. Wet was only published by Bethesda Softworks but developed by an entirely different company, Artificial Mind and Movement now known as Behaviour Interactive. Bethesda did not create Wet, only published it. Behaviour Interactive has no connection with Bethesda and is an entirely different independent game development studio.
OMG! I love that video that is on my youtube favorites list. Hate Britney though.
Agreed Tinasumsum... People on here truely believe that somehow their negative comments will actually change someones mind about something they like! Look at it this way... the difference between 360, Wii and Ps3 for gamers is like the difference between American and foreign cars. Ps3 and Wii will offer you different things that a lot of people respect. For instance, people buy Toyota and Honda for reliability! American cars have had their problems in the past, but people still buy them. Why you ask? because they had americans in mind when designing them!
The only way the annoucement is going to hype me up is if it's an exclusive MMO for the 360. That's really the only thing we haven't seen released this generation. If it's another shooter...meh or another rpg... meh. Actually a high profiled JRPG would be welcomed. Also new strides on Kinect development is welcomed. The idea is I want something new, not the same old rehash games we see every year on 360.
another halo game more than likely
I just hope they dont start the hype train then announce crackdown 3 i will be very disappointed.
What instead of Sony's stellar line of new IP's you mean such gems include. 1) Uncharted 3 2) KillZone 3 3) LBP2 4) Infamous 2 5) Socom 4
I hope not! I told people Crackdown 2 wouldn't gain any interest and they kept doubting me. The game is just not that great! @Rush... You forgot a few games on your list bud! And I think everyone knows that Ps3 will have the most exclusives this year, however, I think the ones you listed will me the main sellers for it!
God I hate Major Nelson. Not only is he a complete tool he's also ugly as hell. I wish there was some way I could take him out of my NXE so he could stop telling me what to do: "click this NOW!", "buy this NOW!". Such a terrible marketer.
You do realize that is his job, right?
You do realize there are other ways to market products right? Isn't he a programmer anyways? Are you a fan of "I dream of jeannie" or something? Sorry if I offended you and your idol.
Why not Tomorrow at CES??? Now we have to wait a week to find out sucks…
Wow, I was in a Ps3 post and pointed out how I didn't see any fanboy comments on that page, yet I can go to any 360 post and see tons of them! Do you guys have nothing better to do? Do really come here just to bash the 360? Grow Up! You guys nag too much! If MS tries to come out with new games, you bash them and say they're worthless. If theymake a sequel, you say they are milking the franchise or the game looks exactly the same as the previous one. I could go on and on, but the fact is... you are just haters!
Your worthless generalizing sucks, I have never said those things you said up there maybe other have but yet you come here throw this accusations at me for things other have done and not me, just because there many PS3 fanboys on this site it doesn’t mean that am one of them, I love my 360 and can’t wait for Gears 3 and also can’t wait for the new game there going to show next week I just would like for them to show it at CES so we don’t have to wait till next week since there haven’t been many MS announcement lately, is that been a fanboy dare I ask??? …
I bet its 99 kinectalloons.
wow, first thing i thought of after reading that was '99 luft balloons'.
Me too LMAO.
probably some bullshit Kinect game.
The 360 is in need of some games this year.
mass kinect 3??
Halo 4 XO, Halo Wars 2, or even Kinectimals Unleashed =O
Halo wars 2 probably....there HAS to be a halo game every year for some reason. Or Halo Reach ODST
Rapping facts for Kinect!!!!
Haha this page is full with bad jokes.
Gurantee it will be a FPS or a Kineckt game i say 80% chance on a kinect game.
AvatarKinect was already leaked.
Sing and dance with Justin Beiber is my guess.
probably some Kinect sh* let's hope this news is worth it than the over hype Crapcom does with their SPECIAL announcements and Goeff Kielly
I spoke to major nelson yesterday on xbx live and he told me the game thats going to be revealed is mech assault... true story
All kidding aside, I would absolutely love a new Mech Assault. Had soooooooo much fun with the first one on Xbox. It was my first Live game.
I've never been a big fan of robots and such, but I did like Mech Assault! I hope at some point they release another one, but I hope that isn't the announcement! I got it... Perfect Dark 2 is being made by 343 Studios! Then again... MS does have a few other developers working on projects so we will never know what's coming down the pipe! I hope to god it's not a Lionhead game... I just have no interest in anything they make anymore!
They are releasing LittleBigWorld. MS said if Sony can do it so can I. I kid.
MS for the life of me please surprise us and show the world your back in the game. I don't mind the Kinect games but where are the core exclusives we have been asking for? If it's something multi platform or timed I'm through getting hyped. Also please don't be a xbla game announcement.
Cool, looking forward to seeing what it is! I give people the benefit of the doubt before jumping to conclusions, so I'm hoping it's a new high quality game. We'll see :)
if it's a kinect casual game goodbye MS.
I hope it is Perfect Dark 2, but I just could be dreaming. What if it was Crimson Skies 2!!!! or Bloodwake!!! or that 4 player fighter Kakuto Chojin whatever the name is lol!!! It probably a timed exclusive with a PC version or PS3 version coming out months later. We never got a fully exclusive 360 game for months!!! The original xbox had better games than the 360!!! and not all of them were on the PC or PS. Games like what a mention above and games like, Jade Empire, oddworld, Mech assault, Otogi, Amped, Brute Force, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Phantom Dust, and many more shown on Wikipedia... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
You brought back some good old memories but forgot Breakdown, Riddick, Splinter cell(xbox version), Wreckless, RB6 and Mid town madness. Brute force would have been so much better if it released with Xbox Live.
Ha! sony fanboys! Grabbed by the ghoulies 2 Too human 2 perfect dark 00 conker kinectmals dlc nfl fever 12 :)
Another pro 360 article and of course their's a shitload of ps3 fanboys doing damage control.
i know man. pretty sad. These people cry that microsoft doesn't have any exclusives, and then major nelson says one will be revealed real soon and then they make fun of that. You can't win.
It is CES, not E3. I think the biggest thing would be the new tablets running Widows 7. Then a way to expand Windows Mobile and some Kinect features. Expect something like 1vs100 or game room, but you won't here something like Halo, Fable or perfect dark.
I think next week isn't there a XBLA or indie kind of event.
I hope its a big name game that's got both kinect and none kinect support. If it is I think it will be the start of a year where MS bring big name games up throughout the year and if they do I think it will of been a very good plan by MS to show kinect off over Xmas for the none core and keep us core fans happy with big name games throughout the year. I maybe wrong but looking at what MS did last year and what they have said about the next 5 years I think MS is now thinking about how they push things rather than just tell us what will be out in 5 years time.
I think it will be another 1 vs 100 type of game that will use Kinect. I would rather have a kinect enhanced FPS!!! Like a Call of modern battlefield Kinect or something like that.
