I'm completely serious that I'd buy Halo 2 remake if it had the same multi. Halo 3 was one of my favorite mp games ever and Halo 4 and Reach we're just so bad in my eyes.

If you're joining the thread then this Bish-verified insider ntkrnl has been UNLEASING THE BOMBS.

Here's all the stuff so far he's said in this thread:

  • Forza Horizon: "Fall 2014, probably September. Super sexy weather system and... shit tons of co-op/social stuff. 1080P and open-world, so you can road trip with your bros."
  • White Xbone incoming.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • No info/idea on what Rare's up to, sadly.
  • $399 XB1 this year? "Maybe one without an Optical Disc Drive."

I'm heading out so people update this list accordingly...

I want to play Halo 2 online so bad, but I don't think I'll purchase an Xbox1 to do so. I'll see how this turns out and what other exclusives the console gets. Crackdown 3 could be cool.

I really wish they didn't kill the first Xbox Live, though I understand why they did.

Off topic but I'm really glad someone from MS finally seems to be able to communicate with the gaming community, even if it is in an unofficial capacity. Their PR guys have really soured me on the Xbox brand this past year and seem way too focused on the business aspect, it's nice to finally hear from someone who has some real enthusiasm for the games and their library instead of just trying to make statements that seem like they have no confidence in XBO.

Same, I borrow and sell games far too much right now, and my internet is bad for downloading things.

I hope they don't get rid of an ODD after the first iteration. :(

yes but know we have a more clear picture of what we are getting

New SKUs and launches in other countries

Hints on effects for games... who is working on what

and all of this in a clear manner compared to some insiders saying
"OH I saw a game... not sure if it will happen" A few months pass "Its happening don't worry, in the meantime let me tell you a riddle on a broad topic which could be anything"

Of course it isn't everyone but we barely get anything and in such rapid succession :P
