From the makers of Joy Ride and Kinect Sports Season 2…
Microsoft has been teasing a pretty big E3 for a while now (at least ever since Phil Spencer took over), but this does beg the question (naturally)- how and why? Are Microsoft counting on third party multiplat games making an impression? Because those are also available on the PS4 (and almost always better). Are they counting on third party exclusives? In spite of Microsoft’s historic competence in this area, that seems increasingly unlikely as well.
It seems Microsoft is actually relying on its own internal studios for a change to shore up exclusive content for its system. For instance, their Big Park Studios have confirmed that they they will be showing something off at E3 this year.
For those of you who are asking who Big Park Studios are, well, they’re a rather small team who have so far only worked on Joy Ride, and on Kinect Sports Season 2… so only Kinect games so far. However, there may yet be hope that they have graduated from Kinect (maybe to the Xbox Live Arcade), especially since Microsoft has decoupled Kinect from the Xbox One.
We don’t know yet- it remains to be seen.
