I don't think even Microsoft consider it one of their big games. Closest comparison I guess is Crash Remastered but whereas Sony are going to make a big deal out of that I can see Vince getting quietly released (digital only as well via ID@Xbox). It seems like the kind of game that would be perfect as a freebie for gold subscribers the month of release.

Not that surprised as it never looked that impressive in any of the videos I watched.

I'm much more worried about the lack of any Crackdown 3 news for ages...

As of last year console exclusive is as good as you're going to get with Xbox.

MS need to up their game ahead of the Scorpio launch otherwise there just won't be enough pull with the Xbox brand regardless of how good the console actually is.

Yeah, Scorpio is going to need Forza 7, Crackdown 3 & an exclusive FPS shooter at least to make it a day-one purchase...

Guessing with scalebound, MS saw it took 4 years to get this far and didn't want to spend any more money on it.

I imagine the performance wasn't up to par. They could have shunted it to be Scorpio exclusive to address performance issues but that isn't an option due to their previous commitment to backwards/forwards compatibility

It could of been just a broken mess, Re-core was a mess for a while but they couldn't fix the repetitive nature of the final section of the game (also one of the robots was cut but they left all the upgrades for it)

Scalebound looked like garbage ever since it was revealed but at least it was something new.

That 2017 slate is looking rather stale for Microsoft now and unless they have some hidden first party studios ready to unveil a slew of games, then Scorpio is looking less and less like a day one purchase for me.

Not arsed about 4K and the half-arsed games that we got during the generational handover show that their commitment to supporting Xbone and Scorpio is going to give us moderately polished up versions of the same *****.
