Activision today announced that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, a new, digital download-only video game inspired by Nickelodeon’s new hit animated series, will be available this summer. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is a third-person brawler game set in New York City, taking gamers through articulated, true-to-life environments filled with action-packed adventures as Leonardo, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael. Featuring an original hyper-realistic 3D-style, gamers can experience four-player online co-op play while stomping out the Foot Clan and unleashing turtle torment on any foe that gets in their way.
With an immersive world, deep character development, and an intuitive, skill-based combat system built around combo-driven action, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows puts ‘Turtle Power’ in players’ hands.
Developed by Red Fly Studio, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is expected to release this summer exclusively for digital download on Xbox Live Marketplace, PlayStation Network, and PC via Steam.
After Sony firing the first shoot in the next, next gen wars Microsoft has yet to respond with its own event.
But rumors going around the internet say that we will soon see an event in either late March (around the time of GDC) or early April.
Microsoft has even recently acquired the domain name xboxevent.com leading to more speculation that an event is coming soon. So based on rumors and just what i know from seeing many of these events over the years, here’s my thoughts (and some wishful thinking) on what Microsoft might bring to the table…
It will all open with what you would expect from any media event, a bunch of boring talk on how great Xbox 360 has been doing, how many systems they have sold world wide, how its been the number one system in north America for the last 27 months in a roll and how great Xbox live is doing. Then they will talk about how far the system has come, and how the kinect extended the life of the system. “But now is time for something new, and here it is” (then Poof we get to see a shiny new Xbox system) “introducing the Xbox infinity the next generation of Xbox” Then they will show us the new controller with built in touch screen and give the system specs, witch will be just slightly better then the PS4. “Xbox infinity will be fully backwards. compatible with all Xbox 360 and Xbox arcade games right out of the box and Xbox infinity will not block used games”. Then they will show us Kinect 2.0, (witch will be able to do a lot more exciting stuff, like project the action on your walls). “But we are not done yet introducing the Xbox surface gaming tablet” (witch they will probably reveal at GDC or sometime before hand) with the new Xbox surface you can play all your Xbox infinity games anywhere in your home (because both Nintendo and Sony are doing it so they have to as well). Now let us show you what the Xbox infinity can do ….
Next they will show us some next generation games that are in development, some tec demos and what the Kinect 2.0 and Xbox Surface can do.
Here is my best guess of what we might see based on rumors, what little info i have acquired and some wishful thinking. In no particular order….
Project Gotham Racing (PGR) 5 (short teaser Video)
Battlefield 4 (video)
madden 14 (Logo only)
Need for Speed (logo only)
fifa 14 (logo only)
Coming Holiday 2013, more info to come at E3 in June …. Then on that Microsoft WINS !!! LOL Wishful thinking i know …..
Microsoft’s Kinect for Windows program doesn’t just involve new firmware for PCs. There will be a new version of the Kinect hardware designed for Windows, with “improvements” like a shorter USB cable (“to ensure reliability across a broad range of computers”) and a smaller USB dongle to better share space.
The firmware includes support for a new “Near Mode,” designed to see objects as close as 50 centimeters away from the camera (“with graceful degradation down to 40 centimeters,” Windows Kinect GM Craig Eisler notes). It makes sense for a device you would use while sitting at the computer.
In advance of the Kinect for Windows launch (early 2012), Microsoft has launched the “Kinect Accelerator” program, which will give $20,000 each to ten startups using Kinect, along with Microsoft development tools, “marketing visibility” and mentoring.
The Test Drive series will continue next year with a Ferrari Racing game. publisher Bigben Interactive announced the acquisition of distribution rights for Test Drive: Ferrari, which it will release in Europe on March 20, for Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
This live action trailer featuring Sam Worthington, Jonah Hill and Dwight Howard. Has to be one of the coolest live action trailers to date.
“Whether you’re a veteran of Call of Duty or a n00b just starting out, there is a soldier in all of us”.
Michael Bay Best known for the live action Transformers movies,was recruited by EA Black Box to direct a cinematic trailer for Need for Speed: The Run. The end results are amazing!
Here it is! The first trailer for Grand Theft Auto V. All centered around Vinewood, a stand-in for Los Angeles. We’re definitely getting back into some of the GTA: San Andreas stomping grounds.
