    Now that the crazy out-of-left-field rumor has proven true, I'm curious to know just how many people have a history with Phantom Dust, that obscure combat arena deck building Japanese post-apocalyptic action game that came out for the original Xbox like a billion years ago. Actually, I'm pretty sure it's the reason I bought the Xbox and, now that it's been announced for the XBOne, I am actually considering buying a One just for this game. We'll have to wait and see just how much of an HD remake it is and whether they decide to muck it all up with poorly implemented F2P nonsense, but man, I fucking LOVED that game. And I don't think anyone else I know has even heard of it.

    Can't wait to see a new one. It's such an obscure thing to announce at such a big event, let alone even revive. I want to know the story behind all that.

    Totally caught my by surprise man, to have an idea like that go all the way up the Microsoft chain and lead to funding?? Whoever spearheaded that is my hero.

    My guess goes entirely to Phil Spencer. Or a mix of him and Ken Lobb, since he presented it.

    One of my most favorite games of all time. I still play OG PD to this day.

    I'm kinda actually shocked most people here don't even know of the game. Its a cult-hit and I think it was featured back in the day on a Game Informer magazine. I think that's where I heard of it first then researched online. Great decision on my part. It has absolutely shaped the way I think of video games.

    I've never heard of it but it seems alright from what Patrick was saying about it.

    Kind of a surprising get for MS. Although kind of awesome. Its a testament to how many people largely ignored the Xbox though. A bunch of hidden gems on that system that alot of people have never played.

    Played it, loved it, got obsessed with it. There is and has been nothing like it. The game could be huge if done right and supported this time. I am more excited about this game than anything else announced by a country mile.

    My heroes!! You could kinda tell that Ken was super excited to reveal the trailer (or maybe that was just good acting). He said "good design" was how they choose which game to remake, that made me giddy.

    So happy to see all the superfans in here - this game really was such a huge impact in my life and in video game culture in general, just given the context:

    • One of the first original XBox games to have some serious environment destruction (model swaps before model swaps were cool)
    • Came out right around the time of Magic the Gathering: Battlegrounds, which is a game that began with the same idea but executed poorly. Phantom Dust came around and totally reenergized me on the card-game-as-action concept.
    • 20$ at launch! I wanted to buy it simply because it was one of the cheapest used games at my local store

    Somehow I like to think these two guys knew our love and how bottled it was. I'm so happy ;_;

    Moonlight Sonata in the lobby room, please bring that back again!
