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.
I find this one hard to believe. Open world + weather (requires dynamic lighting) + 1080P... Yeah NO, unless it looks like a 360 game.

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...
Geez! I almost missed 50% of those. Not sure who the shining star of today is - ntkrnl or Chubigans!

Hi Tom, you're making me show off.

White Console plus Sunset Overdrive and a fancy ass controller in October.

Also a limited edition 1TB box after that in November.
Cool.


Come on man, when is a 3rd party apps marketplace coming?

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...,

*adjusts tinfoil hat*

What?
I....don't even care. :) This is good news.

And Halo 2: Anniversary was not expected at all, I think.

Where was Halo 2 Multiplayer confirmed? Can someone link me to the exact post?
Someone asked him if Certain Affinity's involvement meant there would be multiplayer, since they're traditionally a multiplayer map maker. He responded with "ding ding ding".

2016 might see me break down and buy an Xbox One for Crackdown 3... we'll see.

Whoah, one of those sexy white Xbox's as well? Hmmm, some definite changes have happened at MS, seems like they are listening to people.

Not really happy with halo 5 being pushed back.

Has anyone tweeted the serial tweeter himself, phil spencer to get some answers?

I was just about to ask, if there will be a larger HDD SKU. What about a Kinect-less SKU or a Slim version?

I'm actually excited to see how they improve the Halo 2 campaign. Delta Halo must look rad.

What?
He/she basically just confirmed 2 games I had no idea were coming this year FH2 and Halo 2 Anniversary among the other stuff. Gives us a firm timetable on when we should be expecting various releases. Also confirmed Halo 5 is getting delayed and Crackdown 3 is coming. Megaton worthy imo.

Then it's settled. I buy the 1 TB version (as long as it has a disk drive).

Still waiting on an answer about Elites being playable in Halo 2 Anniversary!!!

Hi Mr/Ms ntkrnl!

As a Scandinavian Gaffer, will I be playing Titanfall on the Xbox One in early April or late April?

Also, without giving too much away, what do the MS people think about CBOAT?
