Bayo 3

Im sure Microsoft pissed off Platinum Games already. Scalebound was supposed to be bigger than Bayonetta.

Cuz it worked so well the first time...

Well we did get some good games from it, I still own numerous of their OG Xbox games. Quite frankly, some ports would be nice.

Anywho, curious to see what comes from this.

This is actually a step back from working with Platinum Games. Im guessing Microsoft is going to pay Sega to find another dev to finish Scalebound. What a waste. Not even that, but Sega games unless they are a Japanese platform exclusively are generally doomed to fail. Im telling you, man. Microsoft needs to invest in studios of their own. This is going to bite them in the rear again. With that said...

 

With that said...working with Sega should bring back some old memories for OG Xbox gamers though. They should make another Condemned game exclusively for the Xbox One. If there was a Xbox 360 game that stood back in the mid -late 2000s out it was Condemned. If they could bring back that magic they could be onto something. A new IP focused on a western audience would help because if Sega makes a Japanese game on the Xbox it will fail. Segas wheelhouse with the Xbox fanbases taste lies in the First person to third person genres and  at this rate its looking like only an FPS can survive because All three major third person games struggled (Ryse, Sunset Overdrive and Quantum Break). Make it a war game and you might catch their attention even more. Guaranteed. Its what sells.  If its a known IP I am calling Ryse or Condemned. If it isnt those two then I am calling a new IP.

I think you forget 3rd parties created IPs like Gears, Halo, Fable, Minecraft, etc. As long as MS is willing to throw money at projects they can get new IPs.

Hence, they don't need to create new studios to get new IPs. Furthermore, the trend from Sony and MS has been closing studios but working with more 3rd parties.

Its evident MS is gonna keep pumping out exclusives and funding games from 3rd parties. And more importantly they'll keep getting notable support from 3rd parties because that's what really sells core consoles.

I wouldn't mind another Condemend, but the RE7's modest performance may not encourage that.

Hmm, where did it indicates they made a new partnership? A huge one, nonetheless.

Really? You think ports of persona and yakuza will make the scorpio competitive? I don't even know what to say.

Realised as soon as they mentioned Wargaming, since that deal was also for a Creative Assembly game and I'm a CA fan



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

As long as the games I specifically want to play, can be played on the PC, it's cool. I don't even care if it has to be accessed through the Windows store. Though, I'll always use that platform as a last resort, (killer instinct, etc.) Honestly, unless it's a new virtua fighter, or a really, REALLY good Streets of Rage game, Sega isn't really doing much for me these days.
