Thankfully it won't be a long guessing game...



IGN to exclusively announce ‘unexpected X360 game’
Posted in Xbox 360, Games, Rumors by Curry on March 3rd, 2006 at 12:38

Douglas Perry, editor at IGN, announced on the IGN boards that he is going to be doing a very special announcement today about a game we “would never, ever have expected.”

In his first post he writes:

Check back in the early afternoon PST for an exclusive story on a game you would never, ever have expected. IGN Xbox 360 will have the first details, news, screens, and an interview with the company’s president. Can you guess who it’s with?

No Doug, we’re no psychics so we cannot guess who it’s with. Please tell us more! Which he does:

OK, so… just for clarification, we’re hoping to post a story around noon tomorrow, maybe earlier — that’s PST time (California time) that nobody has heard about. It will be on the Xbox 360 site. It’s an exclusive Xbox 360 game. None of your guesses are correct so far. I was totally unable to guess what it was until I heard about it two days ago, and I’m still amazed by the subject matter and the people putting it out. Sorry to be such a tease about it, but I haven’t even told my team about it yet. I can’t say a word.

Anyway, I expect the range of reactions to be wide in range and long in wind. Heh. And, in order to avoid the mess that happened last fall with a certain midnight review that never happened ( ), let me put it this way: Don’t stay up all night. Please do not. The story won’t be up until tomorrow — Friday, March 3, around noon PST at the earliest. Go to sleep, do whatever, beat people up in Fight Night Round and then gather round here about noon-ish. I should have an update on the exact timing earlier than that, but not everything is tied up tight. There are still a few loose ends before I can concretely give an exact time.

Until then I look forward to your guesses. This should be fun.

Damn, more empty blahblah and no information. Well, speculation and rumors galore: what exclusive game we would never have expected is Doug going to be showing, and what company will be releasing it? Will he be interviewing Bungie’s CEO about Halo 3’s impending release? Or will it be something far more realistic? Feel free to come speculate with us in the comments below or on our forums.

Um ... Halo 3 , Mario, Final Fantasy 12, am i close.. ?

I doubt it's going to be anything big probably a XLBA game, i can't see how IGN would have this news though..

Seems odd.

and XBLA is a very good guess IMO. Sounds about right, for IGN to announce something of that scope.

I'd venture to guess it is something that hasn't been on the original Xbox. Maybe Killer Intinct. Or something that has been exclusive to another platform like Kingdom Hearts. People over on Xboxic.com where I read this, were guessing Spore and Duke Nukem Forever.

Can't be Spore or KH because it says it will be exclusive.

Oh and is there a link to this ? or was it from IGN forum?

Well, I would not expect it to be too big. Why? E3 is only 2 months away and MS will be keeping all the big surprises until then.

Although I would love to be proven wrong, especially if the game is to be launched soon.

I am too poor to own a 360... therefor I play with paper statistics. The results of my indepth scientific anaylisis determined the most important benchmark is Pi. As in The Ring of Light.

Why would IGN have it? Well in case you haven't noticed there's IGN content on XBL so they seem to be quite cuddly with Microsoft.

As for the game I presume it's something we DO expect since we're not expected to expect it which points to the game being something we know about, hence expect.

Hmm. Yeah.

Maybe Banjo?

Subject matter AND people putting it out are unexpected, so that would kinda rule out a sequel.

It will be something like a cutesy platformer by Rockstar North or a snuff version of The Movies by Lionhead.

Thats what I think too grifter, but again isn't that expected as well?

It has to be something HUUUUGE and unexpected (don't get me wrong i know wow is huge), but it has to be donald trump being mimicked by conan obrian huge...

It has to be something totally random like Zelda 360, ff7 360, shenmue 360, super mario 360 (lol), God of War 360 (Oh man) Chrono 360, Carebears 360 (surefire killer app right there)
