How about something revolving around movie games and ways you would improve them.

Over the weekend a lot of stores (Gamestop, Best Buy, Walmart, Amazon) cut the price of Xbox 360 4GB w/ Kinect, 250GB standalone, 250GB w/ Kinect, 2012 Holiday Bundle and Halo 4 Special Edition Bundle

I think the Holiday Bundle is a good price. You get 250GB, no Kinect, download code for Skyrm and Forza 4 for $250.

I don't know if the price cut is permanent though.

We know about 343 and the amazing talent that works their but it seems Microsoft is also picking up talents for their first party games.

Sten Huebler (lead game designer of Crysis 2) is currently working at Microsoft Vancouver. Rumors are the game he is working on is a Space Horror FPS.

Alex Liu (Game Designer at Naughty Dog and worked on Uncharted 3 and The Last of Us. He did the Rough Seas and Caravan mission in UC3) left for Microsoft in May

Also news has come out that Bioshock Infinite Combat Design Director and A.I. Lead has left Irrational for Microsoft this month

Seems like Microsoft is gearing up to launch their next gen consoles with first party support.

i love xbox live and i gladly pay for it but i really wish they would have real sales. thier games are too expensive and when they do have sales it's only for older games and never the good ones.while i think microsoft offers a incredibly better online expierence than sony, sony has the right idea with PS plus.

on topic,thanks for the heads up,i might pick up street fighter.

Have you tried playstation plus? I was a bit skeptical at first but their discounts are pretty good for new games and I got Just Cause 2, Warhammer and that Pacman game for free. Xbox live stuff still feels pretty shitty to me. They are still selling 50 cent Blood on the Sand for 60 bucks on games on demand. That game is how old and average at best. Giantbomb got me hyped to play that game too.

Games on Demand got a little better lately on games prices (Rayman Origins for $20, Gears of War 3 was for $15). There are still games with crazy prices.

I noticed at the end of the trailer when they listed consoles Kinect is also listed with the rest of the Microsoft copywrite. Is it usually required to list Kinect?

Thanks to Vyse The Legend on Gaf. This is the secret ending you get in the iOS version of the game. Could be a possible sequel the game. The Square Enix countdown made a lot of people upset once they found out it was an iOS version of the game but this could be their redemption to the fans.
