He said he has nothin' on Rare.

Rare still upholds that super secret impenetrable fortress title pretty well since back in the 90s

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...

Chubigans rules for that list. Throw that in the OP. My god.

How would dropping the disc drive reduce the price? The disc drive can't be more than like 5$ of their cost.

That's my thought, but that goes more toward their original vision for folks who want DD only. They always going to have to have a disc drive option though.

No way...that would be a stupid SKU, especially without a significant drop in price (or no price incentive for download-only/digital-only games).

I don't understand how a disc drive less system is worth $100. You basically remove the ability to borrow or rent games unless you let someone borrow your gamertag or password. You also will never be able to resell a game. That's worth $100 to you?

The thought of a remastered Halo 2 soundtrack, Oh god yes please. In my opinion, the Halo 2 soundtrack is the greatest in the series. Remixes of great Halo themes and amazing ambient and electronic tracks. A lot of people seemed hype at the thought of Halo 2 MP coming back but I just want to experience that glorious campaign.

ntkrnl. Are MS buying any more 3rd party exclusives? You don't have to state which ones if so. I'm also curious any idea what Undead Labs game will be like, more RPG like? I'd really like to see more first party RPG's all we've got is Fable.

I don't mean to disrespect our new CBOAT but...,

.., everything here does sound cool (I'm not interested in the Xbone but HA2 would be cool) but there doesn't appear to be anything truly MEGATON worthy. If I were MS PR this is how I would try and get NeoGaf excited about the Xbone until E3 or some other big event...,

It's probably that there's nothing to know. It's all hands on deck for Kinect Sports, and after that who knows?
