Microsoft Registers New Phantom Dust Trademark, New Game For Xbox One?

Just what might this be?

Microsoft Games Studios

Ahead of E3, Microsoft has registered a trademark for something called ‘Phantom Dust.’ It was filed yesterday in Europe, and to some extremely die hard Xbox fans, the name might be familiar, as it is apparently the name of a game directed by Yukio Futatsugi for the original Xbox, and published by Microsoft.

This filing of the trademark could mean anything, really. It could indicate something as banal and trite as the re-release of the game online on Xbox Live, or it could mean a revival of the IP, which would make sense given Microsoft’s (yet again) stated intent to try and break into the Japanese market. A game such as Phantom Dust would certainly help the system’s appeal in the market over there, particularly with the hardcore fanbase.

If this is right, then we might expect to see more on this game come E3 in just over two weeks. Or it might just be a standard trademark filing and therefore, a false alarm. We’ll see soon either way. In the mean time check out our Microsoft E3 2014 preview here.

      You sound upset that PS4 has more powerful hardware, more developer support, and is outselling Xbox by ~3 million. Keep shilling and spinning while everyone else ignores you and buys more PS4s.

      PS4 will have the graphics advantage the entire gen. PS4 hardware and software will outsell Xbox globally the entire gen. PS4 will have more dev support and more 1st party games the entire gen. Sony still has a large number of 1st party studios and they’re all working on PS4 games. PS4 will make a net profit, Sony won’t go bankrupt. I’m constantly right, as usual.

      PS4 has the superior version of all console AAA multiplats, The Order, Driveclub, MLB 14: The Show, Deep Down, Uncharted 4, TLOU Remake, more dev support including indies, free to play games and MMOs like FFXIV and Warframe, and unannounced 1st party games (Gran Turismo, God of War, Media Molecule, Quantic Dream, etc.) Titanfall 2 and future 3rd party games will almost certainly be on PS4. All of Sony’s 1st parties during the PS3 years are still active and working on PS4 games.

      Recently Sony has filed trademarks or had leaks for no less than 6 games. Entwined, Kill Strain, Blood Borne, Dark Chronicles, Project Beast and Guns Up. Expect a big E3 reveal of new games.

      PS4 games not on Xbox One: Killzone, inFamous Second Son, Dynasty Warriors 8, Final Fantasy XIV, Warframe, DC Universe, Yakuza Isshin, MLB 14 The Show, Bound by Flame, Injustice Gods Among Us, Knack, Natural Doctorine, and a ton of indies including Resogun

      Sony has more 1st party studios actually working on PS4 games (not mobile or cloud or whatever) and 1st party franchises.

      If you’re that obsessed with minute graphical differences you should be a PC gamer. No console, including the overrated PS4, can compare graphically to a PC.

      Given that, there really is no good reason to get a PS4. The Xbox One has way more features, a better controller, better online network, better operating system, better games, better apps, and so forth. The PS4 is comparably boring and unambitious.

      Multiplatforms games don’t matter because they’re on both consoles and look almost the same (again, if you care about looks, ditch your underpowered PS4 for a PC), but the better features of the X1 make playing multiplatform games better. Furthermore, the list of games on Xbox One that aren’t on PS4 is much more impressive. Better AAA exclusives (Dead Rising 3, Forza 5, Killer Instinct, Ryse, PowerStar Golf, Crimson Dragon, Zoo Tycoon, Peggle 2, Plants vs Zombies GW, Titanfall, Project Spark, Kinect Sports Rivals, etc. All of that vs. Killzone, Knack, and Infamous. What a joke.

      LOL!!! Every time another article arrives where PS4 runs better than Xbox One, all the microsoft xbox shills come crawling out hiding behind high end PCs to attack it. Transparently sad and pathetic damage control. Sorry, it’s still underpowered and overpriced and most people don’t want it.
