Oh cool, I hadn’t seen them. Actually wasnt expecting to see them so soon. I think it’s nice and simple, and the top bar isn’t thick which is nice too.
Also looks like he’s on a Quidditch team. Other than that I concur! :)
I’m still in the boat of let’s wait and see what Microsoft announces at their Build Developer conference in late June. Though I’m all for indies making a ruckus until then because of their current statements. They just still have a lot to explain on how the new platform will work for developers.
True, if the zombie game was represented there that would be the one. Though that rectangle is the most ambiguous, looks like art from the game, even my guess of Fable seems like a stretch.
Hey Tom, that makes sense, I do wonder who is making it. It looks like all the games you heard are covered except that zombie game (which better not be zombies returning to crackdown thumps down).
The Silhouette itself kind of remind me of Journey, which doesn’t make sense of course. I guess you could see that as a cape that is blocking the outling of a Destiny guardian.
I’ll buy it if its a good game (lol) :P
No I don’t see anything wrong with it because Home is number one where you can customize and add your favorite games and trending is a good tab to see what all your friends are playing. Your making a mountain out of a mole hill when games are in front of TV & Movies, Music, and Apps.
That rare game sort of reminded me of a rugby player. Maybe would be cool to get a mature sports game?
Yea it’s Lionhead’s IP (or rather Microsoft itself), the rumor for a while has been Lionhead is working on a Fable MMO. No other details with that rumor so it sounds like speculation, but I could deffinetly see that working with Fables world.
It doesn’t work that way, I don’t know about full retail digital games but a %30 cut is the standard for digital games. That’s Steam, Xbox Live Arcade, all of iTunes Store.
There is plenty of cost in distributing digitally too .
Also having a SKU without a hard drive will still get retailers mad. What they are doing is the best of both worlds, and if you still only want to buy from a digital store you can probably do that too. Lets just hope those prices are more competitive with something like Steam.
Can’t deny that, but they have some sort of a solution, but the messaging was so mixed yesterday.
One executive said it would regularly check to see if the disc was activated on a new account, so you console would need to be connected at least once every 24 hours. That was later refuted and simply said more will be explained at a later date.
No way what’s going to happen?
One of the things they definitively explained is games need to be installed to the hard drive and you won’t need the disc in to play it. That was one of their highest priorities.
The confusion right now is around what happens to the disc after initial use and how is it possible to sell it.
There are two reasons they are doing this over ever considering a digital only no optical disc console.
Obviously the first is bandwidth problems, download speed & data caps (games are only getting larger)
But the other reason is to not alienate retailers who will be selling your console. Retailers don’t make all that much from selling hardware, most is from selling lots of games.
So this is extremely smart, I was ready to not buy a physical disc once next gen, but it’s not about the convenience of digital stores, but about changing games quickly without ever sifting through discs and having purchases linked to your account.
Lots of questions still be be answered though, but plenty of time to find out.
Yup Ryse Confirmed
Exclusive for Xbox One
Controller-based gameplay enhanced by Kinect
I was on the fence, but I couldn’t help but believe a little more when EA on stage didnt just say oh we have a new strategic relationship with Microsoft. But also in the months ahead they would share how far that goes.
And if EA was going to give them some sort of an exclusive Respawn and a New IP makes sense. (Also most likely a timed exclusive anyways)
Any guesses on what those 8 exclusive “New Franchises” for the first 12 month will be or from who?
I think I can guess where 4 of 8 are coming from.
Remedy (Quantum Break)
Black Tusk Studios (Unkown)
Looks like there will be plenty of hands on unlike the Sony event. I still wouldn’t bet on there being playable games yet (50/50 on that), but definitely interacting with the console, controller, and Kinect 2.0 in some way.
It’s only a few titles, not a massive sale, but since it doesn’t start till tomorrow we should know what the full story on backward compatibility.
I may very well buy Alan Wake again digitally if there is backwards compatibility. One of my favorite games!
(Plus my Xbox kind of hates my Alan Wake disc… Reads it fine but makes weird noises. Just that disc too)
Sorry but I can’t deal with all this cool new stuff, I’ll just keep playing Forza XP instead.
Well Best Buy certainly isn’t doing it because they love Nintendo :)
Yup… Downloadable Demos are a thing Nintendo…
However for the 99.999% of people who don’t have a Wii U yet…. This is smart?
That’s good, I remember them mainly showing the Wii Mote play last years.
I wouldn’t consider picking up this game if a Wii Mote was nessesary for parts of it.
Those things have been put to rest
Bioware is probably Dragon Age 3… EA Sports is… Well sports
But what other game could Dice be working on? The screenshot obviously has the answer I may be the most excited about. Mirrors Edge 2!
Bethesda is a smaller publisher that usual is only dealing with one game at a time. So for them to be marketing Elder scrolls online, The Evil Within, and Wolfenstein this year is a lot. So they certainly were right about them making a lot more noise in 2013, but I wouldn’t expect to hear about Fallout 4 at E3.
They have a rule called “the rule of one E3” where there is only one E3 between announcement of a game and release. Fallout is probably a Fall 2014 release, so the first time I would expect an announcement is probably this years VGAs
However there are exceptions, maybe with such a big E3, and if Fallout is a next gen exclusive either Sony or Microsoft would want them to tease it early.
But again I don’t think so, Bethesda loves teasing but they also like providing details and ramping up marketing soon after.
Basically I think a Fallout game that’s not coming out till late 2014 will distract from everything else they are doing.
There was a comment not saying nice things about exclusive reveals that’s no longer visible that I was going to reply to, I’ll just put it here because mine is appropriate.
Well they don’t need to to link to Gamespot because they probably got a press release when the Gamespot article went up, and they can just embed Gamespots YouTube video.
I don’t like these exclusive reveals but I get the benefit of them. I’d be more frustrated if Bethesda always went to one outlet to reveal a game. But so far they have been good at mixing it up.
Elder Scolls Online (Gameinformer) The Evil Within (IGN) Wolfenstein (Gamespot).
