Microsoft to announce more Xbox One exclusives in 2014

Xbox executive Phil Spencer says "I want to have a great E3 this year."

Microsoft has more Xbox One exclusives to announce in 2014, Xbox executive Phil Spencer teased on Twitter recently. Responding to a fan, Spencer said he has high hopes for Microsoft's E3 2014 media briefing in June 2012.

"We will have announces in 2014, already working on the plan. I want to have a great E3 this year," Spencer said to a fan who asked about the Xbox One's software lineup for 2014.

The Microsoft-owned Black Tusk Studios is working on multiple unannounced projects for Xbox platforms, while it was just recently confirmed that Fable developer Lionhead Studios is working on an all-new IP as well.

Regarding Xbox One games that have been announced--like the new Halo game, Quantum Break, and Sunset Overdrive--Spencer said fans should expect to learn release dates for "most" of these games by the end of E3 2014.

I am hoping for fortazela augmented/virtual reality glasses that operate with Kinect. Barring exercise games Kinect is pretty much useless. MS needs to justify the Kinect being a mandatory accessory. As of now I have no use for the camera.. I have to say xbox on like 3x before it actually turns on my xbox one TV and receiver. Or I could just press the button on the controller which would turn on the TV, the xbox one and the receiver and then I can use the controller to navigate to Netflix or a game that I need a controller to play with. Once in a while if I am cooking dinner or if I get a phone call the voice commands to come in handy. But the price doesn't match the usability of the device at this point in time. So at E3 I want 2 killer exclusives besides Halo and I want news on what they plan to do with Kinect. I am about to wrap it up and put it back in the box at this point. The PS has not shown me anything that I want to play yet either. Killzone while gorgeous is bland when you compare It to Tomb raider or Uncharted or Gears of war or Halo.. or the the last of us. I have not played the last of us as of yet. I heard its pretty bad a ss.

this sort of seems like a no brainer. Of course they'll announce exclusives this year. Assume Sony and Nintendo will as well.

Um, perhaps this should be news if they were to say we don't plan on anymore exclusives in the time being Otherwise it's no shit. Pretty obvious to anyone with a brain.

Xbox 1 or PS4...  Doesn't really matter to me, I'll buy the first new game unit that has a decent sequel to Ace Combat 6.  Ace Combat Assault Horizon and its dog fight mode sucked, everyone agrees on that.  So come on, Namco Bandai, let's see Ace Combat 7 or something as least as good as AC6, and I'll buy a new system.  In fact, why not make AC7 for both systems so I can choose which one I want to buy next.  Stop the exclusivity (is that a word?)....

Well since xbox1 getting more games PS4 will look at this and make more bigger games more Exclusives.  E3214 will be bigger than did last year.

Exclusives are great, if done right. Sony's ps3 exclusives ranged from amazing to meh, but if MS releases a lot of 'meh' then exclusivity means nothing.  Also, i'm pretty sure all xbox one exclusives will be on PC since .. you know, MS OS and all.

You know, a person can have an exclusive bag of shit, doesn't really mean I want it though.

I'd imagine quite a few of the exclusives will be Kinect-based. They still have to justify it as a gaming accessory, rather than just a navigation tool. I'm still keen to find out what all the exclusives will be though, and whether they'll be enough to convince me to get an Xbox One.

EDIT: I just re-read the tweet. Spencer really did say "We will have announces...", lol

Can't wait for the next E3! I hope there's some good stuff lined up for the One. If they go exclusive crazy like last gen then Sony has their work cut out for them! haha

So Microsoft is simply wanting the executives to have a great E3 not the hardware.

Oh, Microsoft will announce new Xbox One exclusives this year?  No fucking shit, Eddie.  Maybe your next article will be about how Titanfall will be in first-person, or how the new Infamous game will have characters with superpowers.

@krienie EU Union has 28 countries with a quite unified market... and they only reale the machine in 8 of them. It doesn't make much sense indeed.

@4quarterswhere are you getting your info? Probably off of www.sonyfanboy.com because i dont see any xbox one exclusives that are crappy kinect games? Dead Rising 3, Ryse son of rome, Forza Motorsport 5, Killer Instinct, and many more, none of these require kinect at all!!!! get your facts straight before posting on a microsoft article, if you hate microsoft so bad, then go troll on a sony page about it!!!

@4quarters None of the games mentioned in the article are "crappy kinnect games." Ryse is the only one that really falls in this category I believe, but that was already released..

@Warlord_Irochi@MegamandrewI've been frequenting this website since the 90's, so I guess it's more of a habit than anything else.  The thing is, the site wasn't always like this.  I mean, it really used to be great, but they've been continuously going downhill for years now, what with the silly videos, reviews meant to grab attention more than inform and the aforementioned laziness that's taken over the journalistic aspects of the sight, much of which is written by Eddie Makuch.

Beside the terrible fighter there's the sample of kinect rivals, and xbox fitness which is not really a game.

The only ones I know of are Zumba and Just Dance and I love Just Dance. Other than that there's no other Kinect games.

@Megamandrew Oh, I remember those times. Only 2 years ago this was a place for speaking in which trolls were getting banned all the time.
Kinds the same for me, all things said.,. :/
