Xbox One to get 15 exclusive titles in its first year

Eight of those games will be brand-new IPs, says Microsoft.

Microsoft has announced that it intends to release 15 exclusive titles for the next-gen Xbox One within its first year.

Speaking during the console's unveiling at Microsoft's Redmond campus in Washington, Microsoft corporate vice president Phil Spencer added that eight of those 15 titles would be brand-new IPs.

During the unveiling, Microsoft showed off Forza Motorsport 5 and Quantum Break, a new title from Alan Wake and Max Payne creator Remedy.

The company said that some of its new titles will be shown at E3 2013.

Microsoft will release the Xbox One worldwide later in 2013.

It is funny how whiny the video game community is. One will come out and the majority of people whining on here will end up with one,

Think we know it will be Halo 5, Forza, quantum break, I would love to see a new crackdown come out maybe not ever one game but I enjoyed it, new fable (no Kinect), i think we going to see some Kinect games, but just because it not for the us hardcode gamer it does not mean it should not be sold, what so if it not for you it should not be allow, sorry the gaming industry is not here for the pleasing of moaning gaming fan or Sony fan boy who forget they have wil style games, their a market as Nintendo proved with the wil which sold well and Microsoft and Sony (the move it think) will keep getting games made for them.

I hope by "New IP" they don't mean "A brand new branch of Call of Duty".  And hopefully one of them will be a really good RPG.  Maybe whatever is next in the Mass Effect or KOTOR universe.  I'd be down with a new KOTOR RPG.

on second thought just how profitable will 15 exclusives be in a year, that one game every month and two in some months, no ways are all this goner sell enough if they AAA

I was so impressed with my self I posted this comment on GS and IGN

That's a good number, but let's see how many of them will meet that expected deadline. Delays are all too common nowadays.

Alright fifteen games that might of might not be playable due to the XboxOnes system for blocking used games.

I hope that six of those eight aren't "Unspecified Kinect Family Game," "Unspecified Kinect Party Game," "Unspecified Kinect Sports Game," etc. MS and Sony had better wow me at E3, or I'm rolling my new-console fund into my new-nVidia fund.

I have a strange feeling about these new IPs, like they'll downloadable cheap games or kinect games. This sucks :(

8 new IPs.

There's already Quantum Break and the COD clone from Respawn.

There's also definately a Kinet game in there somewhere.

Existing ones are HALO, Gears, Forza, Fable, .... Oh wow. They don't have shit.

If 8 are brand new then what are the existing ones? All I can think of is GoW, Fable, Forza, Halo and Alan Wake

i really wish for a sequel for Alan Wake. It's awesome that they will expand their exclusive titles. Microsoft really need something to fight PS4's exclusives which is pretty impressive.

What they didn't say though is in the second year 14 of them will be available on the PS4 or the PC.

Kinda like Sony not showing hardware, why say this without showing the games?

i am a big fan of Sony consoles since the beginning the time i left arcade visits behind and began Indoor gamming, I have supported sony consoles all the time, i feel Xbox is doing fine so far they have the console revealed here and if the hardware price is equal to Sony PS4, then Xbox beats Sony, if Sony hardware is cheaper then sony wins, because gzamers wants game consoles. and if xbox can do more in the same price then xbox wins. still so far i prefer sony but i will stick with Ps3 for now untill both consoles are released and thier flaws are taken care of if any, then i will buy Xbox or Ps4

@weetbix23 I wouldn't even consider Alan Wake an xbox exclusive anymore personally since I just bought the Alan wake humble bundle.  just wait a few years and the xbox one "exclusives" will be available through steam for $5. (Fable's in the same category too)

SCWoodson007

@raahsnavj agreed. even their "exclusives" like Alan Wake and Fable are on PC. I just spent $3 on Alan Wake 1 and 2 (yay humblebundle!) and although I'll up my payment if they're as good as they seem, that's a heck of a lot cheaper than getting those exclusives the year they come out on xbox one.

@eyeball2452 They did show hardware, the specs I mean. That's what matters.

XONe looks like a VHS player but considering SONY's previous desgins, which were all top notch, i'm expecting this to be just as slick. I hope it won't just look like an upgraded PS3 though.

@rIVAL_sWORD84 well, the thing here is the home entertainment.  That's going to take it over the edge and sell more than the other 2 systems.  Say parents are buying the system, the find out it can do everything all in one and not just play games! Thats the sure winner for them over sony's platform.  Or someone like me who just wished for all my things to be in one. My console, TV, Music, Browse Internet.  Now if the system holds up and runs like its suppose to I'll finally have that.

@LukeWesty You know this was all a smart move? Now it doesn't seem like but it will be.  At E3 Sony's showing off its console while MS is showing off its games.  Who's going to have the bigger media outbreak at E3, hands down MS.  Theres a reason for everything and to over shadow a competitor like they aren't even there is a key for console/game selling.

I doubt it will be Perfect Dark. Remember, the article said there will be 8 new IPs, which means they are not sequels, prequels, or offshoots of existing games. My uneducated guess is going to be that they will make at least 2 titles that are Kinect 2.0 games. Hopefully they'll bring something good to the table at E3 if not, then I'll have to see what Sony brings before I can make an informed decision on which console to get, if any.

@inthepastxx @rIVAL_sWORD84 Yeah, that is true, and i feel regular entertainment consummers will buy xbox if it is not so expensive and affordable for them eg:- Blue ray tv cable Internet usage, and dont forget Kinect is the high selling point, Switching channels with kinect will be awsome or something along those lines... I like sony only because of the exclusives and i cant stop playing the sequels that will be comming on PS4, but for pll who like xbox exclusives it is a good news since xbox can do so muxh more.. for the other stuff i have android device and My laptop will be fine for another 2 years

@rIVAL_sWORD84 @inthepastxx I completely forgot about the Kinect coming with all systems lol.  Though I do agree with you I just bought myself another ps3 because of all the sony exclusives that I love so much. And Same I have an Android phone and A gaming rig that gets updated once a year so those points as well are fine.
