Initial Thoughts on the XBOX One Games List 

There’s little surprise to see shooters representing the main body of video game design on XBOX One, the system being the home of FPSs and the genre itself being the most popular. The same can be said of racing games, which have long been popular on XBOX systems.  Considerably more surprising is the fact that there is so far only 1 RPG game confirmed for XBOX One. With RPGs being one of the largest genres in gaming, there can be little doubt that many RPGs are going to come out on the XBOX One. Most likely at least one or two RPGs will be confirmed at E3 (probably including Fable).

 

Another big surprise with the XBOX One games list is the lack of Kinect games. Microsoft placed a lot of focus on Kinect during the XBOX One press conference, but so far there are no games designed specifically for Kinect. Obviously, this is a huge problem, as Kinect’s success is heavily reliant on third party support. Microsoft are going to need a massive success on Kinect in order to convince video game developers to develop for the system.  Financial investors simply won’t gamble money on a system that at the moment appears to lack commercial viability. Where that huge success is going to come from, however, remains to be seen.
