Xbox One: Quantum Break will ‘push boundaries’ of how we view games and live-action

Thursday, 30 May 2013 11:21 GMT By Dave Cook

Xbox One title Quantum Break has been discussed by Microsoft’s Phil Spencer, who feels Remedy’s shooter will push boundaries in how we perceive games and live-action content. The game will run alongside a TV show, similarly to Defiance.

Speaking with Polygon, Spencer said that together, Microsoft and Remedy are, “trying to push the boundaries of how people think of live action and gaming today.

He added, “The unique capability of Remedy, I think is around storytelling, and television’s always been a great place to tell strong stories. We’ve got this interactive component … where actions in one and viewing in one, impact what people are doing in the other. That’s our creative idea.”

“The team has enough momentum in that space, I thought, so it was a great opportunity to put them on stage and show something. We’ll talk more as the game evolves.”

We just posted the game’s pack-art here. Check it out.

Thanks OXM.

  10. Moonwalker1982

    So it’s like Defiance in that regard? Doesn’t that mean it will be just a seperate show and that the game will have it’s own in-engine cutscenes? I’m trying to paint a picture here.


    It doesn’t sound like that to me at all. Alongside a tv show, sounds to me like the game won’t have of that.

    I did a wiki for Defiance and it’s a seperate tv show and game.

I mean, if they’re not constantly getting a stream of new video game content for the X1 then it’s obviously a day one PS4 purchase. Just think about all the game info that has been spilling forth since the initial PS4 reveal… OBVIOUSLY, a no brainer!

    #23 2 years ago
  24. OlderGamer

    You might have a hard time convincing me of that too. WiiU might just be the last console as we have come to know them. In todays world a Generation cycle means a lot less then it did 20 years ago. When most people talk about a generational cycle, they are still refering to graphical leaps forward. But intodays world we are moving, for the most part, past that.

    The truth is a PS3 game looks good enough for most people. And most people won’t complain about a WiiU game. It is a world where more people buy and play on mobile devices then traditional living room consoles. And in the coming years those traditional living room consoles will change the way we consume games.

    What they won’t dramaticly change is the graphics of said games. Slightly better, how is that for a generational leap? And that is what most core gamers have been basing their opinions off of. Graphics. And their expectations that this coming “Next gen” will be a major revolution graphicaly. We saw the WiiU and laughed, it wasn’t what we were expecting. It was like going from a NES to a TG16. Improved, but not much.

    I don’t think you can hang your hat on next gen having mind blowing graphics. That isn’t the focus of the systems. The intent is to change the way you purchase and consume. And that covers the gamet of games and video and music entertainment. Throw in social media. Throw in sharing features. A heavy dose of services… what were we talking about again?

    Oh yes, graphics. Ok sure they will be nice. Amazing? Mind blowing? I doubt it. Nothing we have seen is mind blowing.

    And we get all of that wraped up in mega corperational fantasy dream paper. Full of pay walls, always on, DRM, used game fees, different level of viewing liscing fees, marketing info being gathered from mandatory cameras. etc.

    Graphics aside, what most people seem to want is a console. Something like the WiiU. Ironic isn’t it?

    I can defently understand that. I really have been wanting to get a handheld. I am a bit torn as to which to buy. I think Vita is the better hardware, but I tend to think the 3DS has the better games line up. The real problem is my eyes, those handhelds can be tough to play for any length of time for me.

    But I do like the simple straight forward, game focused feel of the handhelds. That is something it seems we will be giving up to move into the “next gen” of consoles.

    #27 2 years ago
  28. Lengendaryboss

    Most of what your saying about Xbone is either not finalised, never been mentioned, generalisations and judging just on the basis on Xbox360: who said 60? for all you know it could be free, paid for in various tiers and other alternatives, no-one cares about what Nintendo games your playing on your favourite Nintendo platforms.

    #28 2 years ago
  29. OlderGamer

    “no-one cares about what Nintendo games your playing on your favourite Nintendo platforms.”

    But isn’t that also a fanboy slant? The Wii sold Millions. Several of the best selling games this gen were on the Wii. And the last Gameboy that didn’t just about print money was….VirtualBoy? What I mean to say is that first, second or third place…Nintendo games sell fantasticly well. And that would ofc indicate that someone does indeed care.

    @OG tough decision. If you go for ninty you must go with the 3DSXL. I can also play all my old DS games on it and while the pixels are blurry (if upscaled), I find that its okay for a session. So if you have had a DS, its a nobrainer.

    The Vita. I was an early adopter but Uncharted was a huge disappointment (imo) and WipeOut2048 was great but after a while the handheld was just laying around (confronted to my other handhelds) so I sold it for a good price.

    Now though, would be the time reconsidering buying a Vita, since there are more interesting games on the way, plus the perspective to use it with the PS4. The rediculous prices for memory cards dropped also a bit. And the is a good chance to make a bargain getting one second hand. Wait for E3 where Sony will definetely show some Vita stuff in combination to the PS4 …

    I think in all fairness OG it,s the way some things are said by certain posters that get a reaction rather than fanboyism.

    I dont have the wii or u and most likely wont be getting it but I wont go round knocking it for the most part.

    The knives appear to be out for the 1 much like they were out for the 3 last gen.

    I think the old xbot is coming back to me this time although if I,m been honest I will most likely get the 4 first and then the 1.

    “But isn’t that also a fanboy slant?” No its not no-one cares, no-one asked what he is playing in fact what relevance does it have here? He is just here to preach Nintendo’s good graces while dissing Xbone which to be fair nearly everyone is doing but hes doing it based on his view on Xbone when in actuality it is either “not finalised, never been mentioned, generalisations and judging just on the basis on Xbox360″

    Microsoft said themselves there will be DRM ever 24 hours! MS also said their will be a fee for used games! MS will also charge for Xbox Live! There is a huge focus on TV. There is 8 GB of RAM and 3 operating systems.

    Nothing I said was false. MS confirmed all of this. You can say it’s not finalized all you want, but when MS’ own employees are saying this….how can it not be taken as true?

    And me discussing what games I’ll be playing was in response to this comment:

  43. laughing-gravy

    One question I have regarding this project, what is the production budget for a game & TV show side by side? It’s probably astronomical. Especially considering how much money is needed to produce a TV show on it’s own. What if it fails? Not even a company as wealthy as MSoft can afford to keep writing off large sums of money like that.

    #43 2 years ago
  44. viralshag

    @43, It depends who will be working on the TV show. Defiance the game I imagine is backed and funded by Trion and the show is mostly likely backed and funded by SyFy.

    I don’t know for certain but it’s not impossible using Defiance as the example. I’m hoping that will get a second season as I’m really enjoying it. On the game front I stopped playing it a long time ago.

    The fee has nothing do with gamers, retailers pay whatever price MS sets and they charge you whatever they want. I don’t recall MS saying they will charge for XBL on the One, please link it. You said XBone will have shooter games sure but your forgetting NFS, Sports games like FIFA 14, Forza 5, AC and much more those aren’t shooters just because we are overflooded with shooters doesn’t mean everything else disappears into the sunset. MS employees aren’t even sure themselves one minute its we pay a fee the next its retailers, thats how i think its not finalized thus not completely factual. I am very certain @19 meant in terms of a combination of first and third party support/games like Battlefield, GTA, NFS, FIFA, COD, Wolfenstein, Theif and a variety of other games which hasn’t been announced for Wii or Wii U. The point remains he never asked you what Nintendo games do you play, he said the other two have more support going for them.
