Undead Labs guys behind state of Decay signed a multi year agreement with Microsoft for games.

So, what about that isn't next-gen enough for you?

I was talking about the Wii U, actually.

It isn't a slightly beefed up PS3, though. Nintendo made sure it could handle the majority of upcoming games. Obviously, 3rd parties aren't supporting it as much as everyone would hope(I hope), but that doesn't mean that the capability isn't there.

Not to mention that people are being ripped off by Apple, so that shows how little people know, but we've already discussed that in multiple threads...

All the consoles are worthwhile in one way or another, and that varies from person to person, so come off it(not directed at anyone particular, FYI).

EDIT: In all honesty, it always sounds more like people want Nintendo to do poorly, but that ultimately isn't really a problem; just annoying. Don't get me started on Nintendo's finances and stuff...

Just because I don't care about the inevitable unnecessarily long discussion, I should point out I am asking this because I am honestly curious and not just as a way to bury Xbox...

what is their lineup beyond ports for the next...half a year? Confirmed stuff. I literally know nothing specific beyond Titanfall, and the things about it being in Alpha and it's on PC and 360 anyway...like are there some major things I'm missing? Because I've heard nothing else despite following Destructoid regularly and most of the important stuff seems to be 2nd half of the year...

Beyond Good and Evil 2 better be happening! In the meanwhile though, here's a fun little Let's Play of the original. Think you'll like the game if you like Zelda!

D4 which will be an episodic series like the walking dead by Swery 65.

Super Time Force from Capybara games

Below from Capybara games

Kinect Sports Rivals

Fable Legends

Project Spark

Sunset Overdrive

Quantum Break

Halo 5

In addition to all of that you have the DLC for Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct and a few other games.

We also have a bit of inkling of a few other things in the work from Microsoft Studios and Phil Spencer the new head of Microsoft Studios since last years reorg is promising a lot this year.

He's teased on his Twitter account

A follow up to Phantom Dust
Crackdown
Bringing back more Rare Ip's since Killer Instinct has done well.
Bringing back more IP from the OG xbox.

There's also still a lot of unannounced stuff.

-Lift London one of the newer studios should be announcing their first game made in conjunction with Dalala Studios. From the art on their website and Christmas card it reminds me of a P&C adventure game which is fitting since it will be on mobile as well.

-A new Racing game for this year made by the Forza Horizon developers Playground games is all but confirmed at this point.

-Lionhead is working on a 2nd non fable game, but that probably next year.

-343 posted some concept art for Halo at the start of this year, but the art in question doesn't seem like its for the next mainline game, since it shows the infinity at a space port.

-Rare has some non kinect stuff in the oven according to Spencer.

-Press Play tweeted that they're finishing up voice work on their next game.

-LA studio has some TV stuff coming up starting with a Documentary on Atari ET, a street soccer reality series, and Halo.

Probably missing some other stuff but oh well

Still unsure which way to go a bit. PS4 is still my front runner due to support, but I really like Halo and Fable.

First world problems right?

none of that answered my question on what Xbox One is doing in the first half of this year and I'm pretty sure much of that isn't coming out in the first half of this year.

D4 episode 1 should be launching next month and that's episodic.

Plants Vs Zombies Gardan Warfare is next Month.

Project Spark should be launching in the next fee months.

Kinect Sports Rivals is in March.

Killer Instinct DLC. Spinal is this month with Fulgore and the Story Mode coming in March.

Dead Rising 3 DLC which I'm guessing one per month.

WAT!

Oh ok. So there's something at least.

Garden Warfare looks really fun for the record.

I'm a bit more worried about the PS4, since there is nothing with a solid release date other than Infamous.

But all three consoles looks pretty barren for the next few months. So its just as good as time ad any top catch up on some old games.

They're both selling way better than I expected. 3.9 million Xbones sold in 5 weeks (360 s old 1.5 in its first 5 weeks). Maybe crossgen games won't hang around as long as many people anticipated,

I dunno, Wii U despite abysmal marketing sold 3 million fairly quickly when it arguably had no right to and most consoles have slowed down to a halt after the launch. Most aren't gonna care too much about the new consoles until next holiday season imo. I know I'm not, I'm mostly interested in the remaining 360 stuff right now (Soul Suspect )

Microsoft announced they bought the gears of War franchise from epic. Black Tusk is taking over development as well.

Sounds like Black Tusk is a Multi team developer as well. In an interview with Major Nelson the guy at Black Tusk didn't want to say what the studio was working on other than gears. The studio who shared space got shut down and it was said that Black Tusk had scooped up most of those people.

Seems like Epic is getting out of the development game other than iOS.

It sounds like they are some neat exclusives coming to the Xbox One. I'm now glad that I got said console as an early Christmas/birthday gift.

Insider in GAF is dropping bombs about Microsoft's plans.

Forza Horizon: "Fall 2014, probably September. Super sexy weather system and... tons of co-op/social stuff. 1080P and open-world, so you can road trip with your bros." UPDATE: Weather system powered by "the cloud"
White Xbone incoming. UPDATE: In October with "fancy donkey controller"
NEW: Limited 1 TB box in November
Why all the leaks? Scared you might get caught? "I am incapable of fear. Plus, this is such exciting stuff, and me talking about it ahead of time isn't going to hurt anything, truthfully. We're all chomping at the bit for it to come out. This is not bad. "
Halo Anniversary 2 will be 1080p, iffy on the 60fps, maybe not.
Quantum Break is Holiday 2014
Multiplayer confirmed for HA2, same devs as Halo Anniversary.
Sunset Overdrive is Fall 2014. UPDATE: October 2014
Is not Phil Spencer
Black Tusk cancelled project was called "Shangheist." May have involved stealing stuff from the Chinese (though I think that may have been a reference to the name and maybe not the gameplay? Not sure...)
Fable Legends is Summer 2015
Halo 2 Anniversary includes beta for Halo 5
Gears of War will probably need a 2.5 year dev time.
First Titanfall DLC is 45 days from release, then another one 120 days from release.
No Crackdown 3 news this year most likely, since it's a 2016 title.
A list w/dates of the rest of the Tier 2 and Tier 3 countries that Xbone will release in this year. UPDATE: Late April in Scandinavian countries
No info/idea on what Rare's up to, sadly.
$399 XB1 this year? "Maybe one without an Optical Disc Drive."
NEW: Games with Gold on Xbox One starting April. "Sooner rather than later"

Good for people who plan to I guess. With no real BC and PlayStation Now being crap I wouldn't trade in a last gen console for anything.
