Forums - Microsoft Discussion - What will be the secret game(s) for X360 at E3 set for release in 2010?

This past E3, Microsoft have 2 surprises in Forza 3 and L4D2 set for release in Fall 2009. Forza 3 was hinted and was known in development but no one expect a Fall 2009 release, just a little over 2 years after Forza 2.

L4D2 was a total secret surprise. No one even thought it would be ready, yet it is coming in less than 3 weeks.

So what does Microsoft have cooking for us at next year's E3?

Here are my best bets.

1.  Gears of War 3. Of course we know this game is in development. First 2 games sold a combined 10 million plus. The second game came just 2 years after the original, so it may very well come out in Fall 2010.

2. Killer Instinct 3. RARE keep teasing us with this game and what better time to release this classic fighter than with the launch of Natal in Fall 2010. Also, fighting games are slowly making a comeback with Street Fighter 4 and Tekken 6 selling pretty good.

3. I can't think of anything else.


X360 already have a great 2010 lineup with Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell Conviction, Crackdown 2, Fable 3, Halo Reach and the Natal hype train going on.

But if they added 1 or 2 more AAA big game(s) and have another Final Fantasy 13 megaton in their bag, then it will be just sweet.


seriously? It wasn't shocking at all to me...

Also, I think Microsoft probably have secured a few games but they'll mainly focus on natal....The games they reveal will probably be really cool using natal though. (Killer Instinct 3 + Natal would be impossible for me though. lol)

Around the Network

Maybe Wingnut Interactive will finally announce something.

themanwithnoname's law: As an America's sales or NPD thread grows longer, the probabilty of the comment "America = World" [sarcasticly] being made approaches 1.

RalliSport Challenge 3 or Project Gotham Racing 5 for Sure.

2 RaRe Games for Natal - 1 FPS other Plataform.

LionHead Showing Milo and Fable 3 - 2010 Release.

BiGPark 1st AAA 360 Exclusive.

GTA V announced at M$ Conference.

Gears of War 3 Announcement.

Bungie new IP and a Bungie Arcade Game... They will also Show Reach to the World and hell yeah its going to be the best online game ever !!

I expect:

Dead or Alive 5
(might be exclusive, might not be..) or Dead or Alive: Code Cronus (again, might be exclusive, might not be..)
Itagaki exclusive
Killer Instinct 3
Prey 2
Lost Odyssey 2
Natal projects..

Uh... What else?

Have you seen what happened with Ninja Gaiden?

That does not mean it'll happen with DOA. It can, but there's no guarantee.. I mean, Ninja Gaiden Black went on PS3 as Ninja Gaiden Sigma. But I didn't see Dead or Alive 2 ultimate, 3 or 4 make it to the PS3. They might make the next one multi-plat, but we don't know yet. There's still a chance it'll sta exclusive.

Ninja Gaiden 2 was published by Microsoft, and yet Tecmo, who own the IP, decided to backstab them and release a more polished version on PS3. Team Ninja is no longer run by Tomonobu Itagaki. He was the only reason their games were Xbox exclusives.

True, but Hayashi is in charge of Ninja Gaiden, and he basically prefers the PS3. The other guy called Hasegawa is in charge of Dead or Alive. But we haven't heard anything from him yet. If it's up to hayashi, it'll be a multi-plat, and if it's up to hasegawa it can still go both ways. All of this,  is assuming that MS's contract for 5 exclusives on the X360 is not valid anymore of course.. 

Truth does not fear investigation

If Ms wants a big surprise give us Gears of War 3 or Halo 4.




Around the Network

I personally expect Microsoft to unviel their next console and will be focusing most of their resources on that. I expect launch titles like Fable3, Milo....etc... Some new project from Rare that uses Natal etc...etc... I honestly think next year will be filled with next gen suprises, I bet Halo:Reach will be the last major first party title on the 360 next year!

TGS, Third Grade Shooter: brand new genre invented by Kevin Butler exclusively for Natal WiiToo Kinect. PEW! PEW-PEW-PEW! 


Bungie's new IP . . .  I forgot all about that.  Good call.

As many said, next E3 will be split between standard and Natal releases.  Natal will get a big push, but it defintely won't be where all of the cards are held.  Halo: Reach will be HUGE, but only if information is scarce up to that point.  We don't have dates yet for Crackdown 2 yet, so that may be heavily featured, along with Fable III.  Mistwalker's next may be big too, assuming its for the 360 and MS is supporting it.  Surprises?  Not a clue.  Blue Dragon sequel for Natal?  Exactly how MANY Rare games will be shown?  Is 343 ready to show or announce anything?  Does Wingnut Interactive still exist???  Microsoft Game Studios really isn't all that big anymore . . .

Regardless, Natal is where it'll be for 360 at E3 2010.  It'd be a good idea if they impress and impress well.

E3 for MS will most likely be taken up by the Natal launch titles. But they will also feature Fable 3 and Halo Reach.

Play Along: XBL & SEN : AlkamistStar

my guess

Gears 3 for 2011
FF13 versus (if FF13 does well in the west, and that is if they release it in time)
Natal Launch titles with core games that would support it
Bungie New IP (or another Halo)
Avatars become more PSN Homelike
Youtube-like Support for custom vids of games (or just Youtube)

Who here feels Ken Kutaragi should have called the 360 a computer instead of the PS3, after all it is becoming more like it.
