    I wasn't bothered about getting a One. Then I saw Divekick.

    Crytek currently has Homefront 2 and Warface in development

    Do I need to remind everyone that the sequel that NOBODY ASKED FOR is the reason Timesplitters 4 will never be made?

    And if you don't know what Timesplitters is

    I have asked for it! Even if they don't want to do a new game I would be happy with an HD remake pack of all the old ones. Timesplitters was one of the best shooters of the PS2 era and I wonder what caused it to just disappear.

    I still hook up My PS2 with my Multitap to play splitscreen on Timesplitters with my friends, Nothing beats a monkey brick fight.

    I really just don't get why they don't do an HD remake. It doesn't cost that much for them to do and it is a popular game with money just sitting and waiting to be made. I never thought I would see the day there was a Zone of Enders and Dragon Ball Z HD remake before Timesplitters. Not that I don't like those games but I think Timesplitters is way more popular. What facebook do I need to get some people to blow up to get this done?

    I liked Homefront. The campaign was awful but the MP was actually very well balanced and good fun. Getting 1000G was a lot of fun despite how grindy it was...!

    I liked it too. Shame the shut the servers down on me as I was about to finish and now I can't ever perfect the game. Sigh. But, yeah, I'd love a sequel. So, I'm glad they are doing it.

    Ugh, was kinda hoping for more xbla style quality. All these vids just looked like sub par arcade games... the ones that don't sell very well.

    That is only judging these games by the videos posted of course... im sure there will be many high quality ones... like Peggle 2!

    At least im confident Team 17 wont let me down... assuming its a Worms game and not something terrible like Alien Breed.

    Yeah, I liked the XBLA setup too. I was disappointed they decided not to keep them separate from the big budget Xbox One games.

    That said, this ID@Xbox program is a good idea. They badly need to extend it to Xbox games on Windows Phone

    HD remakes actually cost quiet a lot. Unless it's just a port, in which case it's not a remake nor HD, then they have to go through and remake most if not all the assets used in the game which is fairly expensive.

    My god if they come out with iron brigade 2 for the one.....I'm buying a xbox one....

    At this point, I'll buy a ONE when there is a game I MUST play....and its not on 360

    Examples are

    Iron brigade 2
    Any command and conquer
    Mass effect
    A new naughty bear
    Any new fallout or red dead game

    And that's pretty much it.
