Phil Spencer: 2016 Will Be A Fun Year For New IPs On Xbox One; Details X360 BC Games Launch For Dec

Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer recently replied to some of his followers on Twitter giving us little tidbits and updates on their plans for the Xbox One.

First of all, Phil Spencer was asked about the announcement of new games to be added to Backwards Compatibility list for the Xbox One in December. He confirmed that they are still in working on it and it should be completed in mid-December.

He also confirmed that they don’t have any plans to Remake Otogi and that Phantom Dust Reboot is not scrapped. Spencer was also interested in doing a Remake of Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic but he said that it is an EA game so obviously it will need the support from EA.

Minecraft was recently announced for the Nintendo Wii U and Phil Spencer definitely enjoyed working with Nintendo.

As for the focus of marketing for Xbox One in 2016, Spencer was clear in saying that it will be new IPs for the Xbox One. There are a lot of games getting released for the Xbox One in 2016 and majority of them are completely new IPs, so Spencer is definitely not wrong here. Among them, Scalebound is from Platinum Games, Sea of Thieves From Rare, Recore from Armature Studio, while Quantum Break is from Remedy Studios. This doesn’t count the unannounced games, as Spencer confirmed that they haven’t revealed the full lineup for 2016 yet.

Golden Eye is considered one of the best multiplayer games on Nintendo 64 and it was developed by Rare. Spencer was approached by one of the fans asking if they plan to release a Remake on the Xbox One, and he clarified that due to some issues with the rights for the series, it is not possible to do a Remake. They have tried to look for solutions and then given up on it.

Lastly, if you were hoping to see Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One store, Spencer confirmed that they are indeed working on a solution for it.

    Hello Phil! Do you know that you can access watch Netflix and Hulu on your Xbox One? Just a suggestion though, you can use UnoTelly to access your favorite channels! đŸ™‚

  • dead fanboy

    The Xbox One is definitely the best gaming console because of new exclusive games and able to play Xbox 360 games as well.

  • dead fanboy

    Xbox One is definitely the best gaming console this generation. Thank you Phil Spencer.

  • Blue Angel

    Phil Spencer have upped the console competitiveness . With Nintendo Games in 2016. and Sony Fan boys Don’t like competition Not from Xbox or Nintendo

  • Mr Xrat

    “Company man tries to hype up his worthless product after an awful 2015”

    Wow.

    • Psionicinversion

      hahah up voting yourself again lmfao

    • Blue Angel

      Xbox one is worthless ? Because Sony Told you so ? or because you can’t afford one ?

      • Mr Xrat

        Because it’s a fact. đŸ™‚

    • Truthâ„¢

      Sounds exactly like what happened at Playstation Experience rscottycuck

      Remind me how Sony managed to make it out with Minus exclusive games that weekend again:)

  • asadachi

    So this article is about what Spencer is doing with xbox, and I think it’s great. So what are the responses to this? Fuck Sony! even though this has nothing to do with the ps4. This mentality is what hurts MS because it looks like the xbox is a home for douchebags. It’s not the case, so be adult and stick to the issue at hand before trying to bring down the competition. This goes for both sides.

    • TonyMC

      Same can be said for sony fanboys, don’t make them look like angels. This happens on both platforms.

      • asadachi

        This is what I am talking about, idiot fanboys who don’t read. I never said they were angels, but I did say this goes for both sides. It’s not really a console issue, it’s more that people are just too stupid to get past any other rationalization than their system is better than the other one.

        • TonyMC

          It’s called a insinuation, not a literal apply. That’s the problem with idiots, they don’t know how to connect the dots. They have to be spoon fed.

          • asadachi

            Wow, you’re stupid.

          • TonyMC

            That’s what a stupid person would say when they don’t understand the context.

          • asadachi

            You are extremely stupid. Just stating fact after you continue to make yourself appear this way. Your logic: you don’t understand my stupid ramblings therefore you are the stupid one. Seriously, keep down this path if you want, but you’re going to regret being this utterly unintelligent.

          • TonyMC

            Look, I understand you’re very slow. You’re not stating a fact, you’re stating a opinion. A shitty double standard if that. Here is an example of taking your opinion and flipping it the other way and guess what? It’s still a true statement.

            “So this article is about what Sony is doing with playstation, and I think it’s great. So what are the responses to this? Fuck Xbox! even though this has nothing to do with the Xbox. This mentality is what hurts Sony because it looks like the playstation is a home for douchebags. It’s not the case, so be adult and stick to the issue at hand before trying to bring down the competition. This goes for both sides.”

            Next time, logical lesson, if you’re gonna state what “my” logic supposedly is, make sure you’re not following it yourself and state it like it’s mine. You truly are a few fries short of a happy meal. Thanks for the laugh. Hopefully you get help.

          • asadachi

            Oh junior mint, you keep trying to justify your stupidity, and I can see how you’re upset because someone called you out on inability to read or comprehend., but continuing to prove how stupid you are isn’t going to improve your situation. I know life dealt you a bad lot and you can’t choose your fucked up genetics, but you have a chance to improve yourself! You don’t have to keep going down this path of mental ruin! You don’t have to be the piece of shit the world sees you as.

    • Mr Xrat

      Xbox gimps are perennially anguished their worthless console is a laughing stock.

  • Hector69

    i am truly expecting a lot from Scalebound it seems pretty damn fun

  • Aaron blanchard

    Xbox one provides the most fun while the ps4 is such a bore!!! Playing games to watching TV, Xbox one is the system for me. And to think ill have to pay to play my old games from ps2, another desperate cash grab from you know who. So this Christmas if you want to play something that’s fun, don’t get a ps4 but grab a Xbox one.

  • RA3030

    Take note Microsoft, if you had any games worth playing, worth playing at all more gamers would own a Xbox One. Get trying though it’s fun to see the hate that comes from your users thrown at Sony.

    • Aaron blanchard

      And vice versa with your comment.

    • YOUR NAME

      salty.

    • Truthâ„¢

      Why buy a PS4 when you can play them better on PC though?

  • dead fanboy

    I like the mixture of both new and established IPs for the 2016 Xbox One exclusive lineup from Quantum Break, Scalebound, Gears of War 4 and Crackdown 3.

    • AuricGoldfinger

      Also RECORE, and CUPHEAD are new ip’s

    • Satsumo

      My only criticism is that there are TOO MANY games to play on X1 – I’m having to make some hard decisions!

      • XanderZane41

        Well having choices is never a bad thing.

  • Kfal Balli

    Hoping Battletoads or conker is one of the unannounced titles. I think either sea of thieves or Recore get pushed back. Fable will probably get a february release date.

    • I just pass by to thanks for support me FFVII days ago, up vote appreciate it!

      • Kfal Balli

        No problem.

  • Truthhurts24

    Phil Spencer has totally transformed the Xbox One and the Xbox brand as a whole its incredible. Give this man a medal already!

    • Chuck Green

      Completely and honestly you are correct. The Xbox one is now an amazing software and hardware platform. I loved the xbox before but now it’s just great in every way. The only thing that irks me is that they have pretty much abandoned the Kinect.

      • Truthhurts24

        Totally agree

    • XanderZane41

      I completely agree. I can’t wait to see what new IP’s they will announce for 2016. I’m already thrilled with the new games coming like Quantum Break, Recore, Sea of Thieves, Below and Inside. The fact that they worked with Nintendo to get Minecraft on that platform shows they have no problems working with their competition.

      • Truthhurts24

        He is the reason I brought the Xbox One and I couldn’t be more damn happier. The most consumer friendly console right now.

    • Mr Xrat

      The Xbone was launched as a joke and it’s still a joke. Stay in denial, Xbox gimp.

      • Truthhurts24

        Lol look at this play slave talking like the remasterstation 4 is great lmao. How is the AAA exclusives going for you this year? Thats right you don’t have any to talk about this year because your precious Sony could care less about it or there fanbase. They would rather focus on indies and VR garbage which is going to flop big time. Continue your wait for greatness pony Im already enjoying it.

        • Mr Xrat

          Got offered Bloodborne, one of the best games of the gen, along with Until Dawn and The Order 1886 and a plethora of smaller games like Tearaway Unfolded, Uncharted Collection, Everybody’s Going To The Rapture, Helldivers, Hotline Miami 2, Rocket League, Dragon Quest Heroes and Disgaea 5. See, this is why Xbox gimps can’t understand why the PS4 does so well: it offers a wide range of games for a wide range of tastes all year round. How were those rehashes you waited ten months for?

          • Truthhurts24

            State of Decay,Gears of War, Forza Horizon 2 , Master Chief Collection,Killer Instinct, Rare Replay,Ori and the blind Forest is not what you call

          • Truthhurts24

            List of games without variety

          • Truthhurts24

            Get informed pony

          • Mr Xrat

            Stay butthurt, Xgimp.

          • Truthâ„¢

            Sounds like the only one butthurt is you rscottycuck đŸ™‚

          • Truthâ„¢

            You forgot to mention those were available on a better platform, rscottycuck đŸ™‚

  • hvd hvd

    just give us some dx12 games and show everyone you were right..lol

    • Satsumo

      Crackdown 3 (and showing they were right about cloud computing too).
      Wow – 2016 is going to be crazy!

      • hvd hvd

        ps4 fans have no clue whats about to hit time.i just hope dice does go dx12 it will make their games better on the xbox one.the ps4 is getting left behind..lol

    • Mr Xrat

      Keep hoping.

      • Truthâ„¢

        Sounds like Sonycucks after the PS Experience still searching for games.

        So cucked that the “Mic Drop” was a PC MOBA. It’s like Sony loves being cucked by a superior platform at this point đŸ™‚

  • Bill E Weaver

    take note Sony, new ips, big titles, not this indie/vr crap no one wants….psx was an embarassment! for the gamer my @$$!

    • hvd hvd

      well the indiestation is full of kiddies so they cant spell quite yet…rolf.psx was horrible even sony fans think so.

    • Barry Harden

      VR is the next big thing. Stay on XBone and you’ll stay behind the times. Not like you XBone fanboys are used to anything else.

      • Satsumo

        Sony haven’t even shown anything on their VR yet – which means it’ll be 2017/8 before they actually release anything for it.

        • Barry Harden

          It’s releasing for 2016 and various studios have full working games on the VR hardware.

      • XanderZane41

        The games they showed for VR weren’t anything special. I think only one game caught my eye. The Tron like demonstration was a disaster. So gamers will need to buy MOVE controllers to plays many of these VR games? Not sure how they plan on releasing this in 2016.

        • Barry Harden

          Like you said Tron was just a demo. The actual games from various studios had full working demos for the public and press and it was spectacular. The move controllers are optional and Sony showed you can use a variety of input controllers.

      • Truthâ„¢

        VR is the next big thing on PC. PSVR will be a 720P failure đŸ™‚

        • Barry Harden

          Shows you know nothing. PSVR will be 1080p with at LEAST 120fps to ensure 60fps for the player.

          • Truthâ„¢

            It’s not 1080P.

            960×1080 viewport is closer to 720P in pixel density. Interpolation is not a FPS boost. Your tears will be magnificent once that lump of junk launches and gets destroyed by better headsets đŸ™‚

    • oSHINSAo

      Don’t forget the FFVII episodic game that will milk every penny of the fans…

    • Phil is doing alright hope Xbox beat PS5 in the next gen!

    • XanderZane41

      Yeah, Sony’s PSX wasn’t great. They announce FFVII Remake, but decided to release it in 3 parts. They announce PS2 support for the PS4 and make gamers buy EVERY PS2 game and not let them use their existing games on the PS4. Then they show tons of Indies. Many that weren’t anything special. They didn’t even give a release date for No Man Sky or Last Guardian. Those are announcements I really wanted to hear.

      • Stephen Legerton

        Sony are not making FF7 you utter retard lol

        Please don’t breed people like you are a cancer on this world and need removing.

    • Stephen Legerton

      Uncharted
      Horizon
      The Last Guardian
      Dreams
      Detroit

      That’s off the top of my head all of those are either new IP’s or big game.

      Oh and all 100% exclusive.

      You are an embarrassment, at least do some research you troll lol

      • Truthâ„¢

        I don’t see any games there. Only movies.

    • Mr Xrat

      22 PS4 announcements from AAA to indie post-E3 versus 2 for the Xbone.

      If it’s games you want, you don’t want an Xbone.

      • Psionicinversion

        • Mr Xrat

          • Truthâ„¢

            Rscottycuck still in tears about the PSVR breaking on stage and it being 720P. The tears will never end.

            He’s completely stopped replying because he knows I make him cry every time đŸ™‚

          • Psionicinversion

            Besides that Battlezone isnt the battlezone im waiting for. Thats the 1980’s version. The real 1990’s version is in development and thats the good one

          • Truthâ„¢

            All those PC games. Thanks for showing why the PC is the platform to own next year and the only platform that wlll get true unconstrained VR

            Go back to shilling your breakout box like it’s a dGPU MisterCuckMedia đŸ™‚

      • Truthâ„¢

        You want a PC since all of those PS4 announcements are also on PC and PS4 lost even more games after PSX

        I’ll be buying Dragon Quest Heroes in the Steam Sale just for you, Rscottycuck đŸ™‚
