    I can see myself playing this when I'm done with the "AAA" release games.

    Having read your link, I actually see this as good news! Not interested personally in multiplayer or touching animals with Kinect so the 360 version will be perfect for me by just offering single player Zoo management!

    I've played this already at a press event, and it's actually pretty decent. I was first drawn to this game at the event because of the quality of the graphics on the XO..

    "We can have 55 maybe, we're still working on the exact specifics for that." So 55 animals out of the 100 confirmed.

    That does certainly sounds like something that is SP related,

    Wouldn't touch the 360 version unfortunately as a lot of stuff has been stripped from it i.e. half as many animals, no co-op and a few other features are only on next-gen.
    Still better than paying £480 for the One version laugh

    I preferred Zoo Tycoon to Zoo Tycoon 2 (same for RCT1/2 to RCT3) due to the top-down views and simplicity, but this still does look fantastic, and is an obvious step in the right direction for the series.

    It's a shame that some of the features will be removed/reduced according to other posters, as I have no intention of getting Xbox One any time soon :(

    Not sure
    Aww get it. You need a relaxing game after GTA 5.

    Xbox.com and half a dozen retailers have it listed as a 22nd launch for both one and 360.

    I believe that number refers to how many animals you can have at any one time in the zoo (due to rendering capabilities), not the types of animals that are available.

    Off Topic, but it has animals in it:
    I want Rayman Rabbids for my Xbox WAAAAAHHHH

    And, this game looks nice for kids.

    Considering the full list of animals totals 100 I am taking it that it means how many species will be available over how many can be in the one zoo. I am hoping someone will clarify that when it releases as I would be curious as the developers do not seem to know what their own game is capable of.
