  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:37:53 PM
    he says he wanted to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the studio with this collection
  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:37:56 PM
    Sometimes "classic" games are pay per download from the Xbox store, sometimes in packaged discs, sometimes ported to there platforms, such as iOS.
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:38:04 PM
    This is a pretty fantastic set of games. And it goes so far back.
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:38:10 PM
    Now, he's announcing a new exclusive game from Rare as well
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:38:18 PM
    A Shared-world adventure game (another trend in the industry)
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:38:24 PM
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:38:45 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:39:21 PM
    This is not Viva Piñata 3
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:39:37 PM
    The game seems pirate themed -- it has pirate music, that's for sure.
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:39:48 PM
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:40:11 PM
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:40:13 PM
    Nice surprise...less cutesy than expected. Pirates, a multiplayer adventure...
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:40:23 PM
    Yup, pirates. You can pilot a boat, walk around islands, deal with zombified skeletons and, of course, battle other players.
  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:40:28 PM
    Is this an MMO? I can't really tell.
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:40:30 PM
    Sea of Thieves.
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:40:39 PM
    It's called Sea of Thieves.
  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:40:52 PM
    World of PirateCraft.
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:41:11 PM
  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:41:24 PM
    Ok, now here's where we get into the "beating a dead horse" category. Another Fable game.
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:41:45 PM
  • Jeff Bakalar 6/15/2015 5:41:53 PM
    Bring back Cuphead!
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:41:54 PM
    Remember Ubisoft's "Assassin's Creed Blak Flag"? It came out in 2013 and was a really popular pirate game. Anyway, some reviewers said it should have just been its own pirate game. Seems Real listened.
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:42:01 PM
  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:42:12 PM
    The IP here has been so kicked around over the years, I'm curious as to why MS keeps pushing new Fable games. Does anyone remember the awful Kinect on-rails Fable game?
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:42:27 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:42:35 PM
    Now we're seeing a preview for Microsoft's Fable: Legends, which was announced last year (or the year before?)
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:42:40 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:42:53 PM
    Fable Legends will be free, Microsoft says, and playable on Windows 10 and Xbox One
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:43:06 PM
    "if you love gaming"
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:43:06 PM
    Everything you earn or buy on one version will play on the other, he says
  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:43:14 PM
    Fable plus "freemium" model? Oy.
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:43:19 PM
    (The guy on stage is a man named Kudo)
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:43:24 PM
    Oooh....Valve VR.
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:43:27 PM
    huh.
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:43:32 PM
    Microsoft is announcing a new relationship with Valve VR
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:43:44 PM
    Xbox now working with Valve VR, Oculus, and has HoloLens...somewhere.
  • Josh Miller 6/15/2015 5:43:49 PM
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:43:53 PM
    "we're working closely with Valve," probably the sentence that many gamers are really excited about
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:44:11 PM
    He's repeating last week's announcement that the Oculus Rift will play Xbox One games.
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:44:16 PM
    Right now, Xbox One only plays games with Oculus by game-streaming to a PC, non-3D or VR.
  • dan.ackerman 6/15/2015 5:44:19 PM
    Now, Scott, maybe you can explain this to me -- the Xbox games on Oculus is basically just using the headset as a wearable 2D screen, right?
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:44:23 PM
    At last, HoloLens.
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:44:34 PM
    yes, Dan: so far
  • Ian Sherr 6/15/2015 5:44:39 PM
    Now he's talking about Hololens, Microsoft's own headset (are you keeping track? It's supporting three different ones now)
  • Scott Stein 6/15/2015 5:44:53 PM
    Much more excited about HoloLens and how this works with....Xbox?
