    I look at it as mostly budget and gamers perception. But you and I are on the same page with Spark. It just looks like a niche title to me. I almost never consider those AAA. I am glad that MS is doing something out of the norm of their usual game lineup with that title though.

    Lmao! Project Spark? Seriously? And what have we even seen or know about Sunset Overdrive? And when was the last time Insomniac even made a good game? Talk about redefining the term AAA. That list is hillarious.

    What are the others?
    Depends how you define AAA is...

    If you define it by two level higher than "A", then none of those games meet the criteria.

    Halo 5- COD: World at War equivalent of COD: MW2. 343 vs Bungie. Still good, but two level higher than A? only if you use that generously.
    Gears- worse than above condition. Black Tusk is rumored to have scrapped/trashed all their previous projects and was only a Kinect studio previously. Not a very good track record.
    Fable- look at recent history. Nope. The studio lost AAA loong time ago.
    Project Spark- Not enough info.
    Quantum Break- Based on studios skill level with Alan Wake, it isnt that far off, but bit of stretch given its metascores.
    Sunset Overdrive- Insomniac's overall down trending is worse than Fable.
    D4- nope.

    Exactly, putting those games name and AAA just makes it sound like Xbox One is just desperate for real AAA.

    to be fair, it's a new generation and while Gears/Halo may not be what the old games were, it's still very possible that they might be great games.

    notice when i say different games, i'm saying that they only need the IP and reboot the series...it will sell. but yes, it's different when the creator is working on the game...it's like if a MGS game came out and it wasn't made by Kojima's team.

    Fable looks promising actually. it's supposed to be an MMO game. microtransactions and all that, we'll see but it might be a wild card.

    Quantum Break is another title that might actually be really good. I liked the teaser. seemed interesting.

    Sunset Overdrive will also likely be at least a 85 title. It's a new generation, anything is possible. i wouldn't discredit Insomniac just yet. the teaser was top notch. yes, they still need to prove their worth but i think they have a great shot at it. though IIRC, it's a kinect game...which is what scares me.

    I don't know what D4 is lol. Project Spark has enough info out there, it's sort of like LBP but has a little next-gen touch to it...which is my problem with the game...it should be doing more than it is at the moment as it's a next-gen game, it just seems very rough to me. but if they presented it better, it would be more interesting.

    So not too bad but yeah, a lot of proving to do except a couple of titles which i think are already in the bag.

    Jesus, you guys are to funny

    "they haven't announced any titles"

    -> points to announced titles.

    "they might not be any good"

    <shrugs> Every game is like that.

    I forgot you guys can instantly tell the quality of titles upon title announcement..

    And what the hell, you guys are redefining AAA?
    Its a production value term, not a ****ing gamer-score term.

    there's no official definition for it.

    and you're right, our bad, we did mean that they haven't announced much that is worth it. not that i care, i'll never get an X1 but i still found it funny that they are announcing "more" TV shows than games at this point lol.

    I'd agree. I would say sunset is borderline. Have to wait and see one we get some actually gameplay or in game teaser.

    I agree with that. Insomniac has been hit or miss with me.

    None of the titles seem to give off the feeling that it had a big budget to work with. I can't shake how they lost their way with the resistance series and how horrible Fuse turned out. There's still a chance that they make a good game but I think it's going to get overshadowed this fall/winter.

    but they are very talented. I thought Resistance 3 looked awesome. i still have to play the game but i don't because i don't have time. otherwise, i thought the beta was pretty cool. i wish they had stayed with Sony, especially now. or at least work on more Resistance games. I really liked the first Resistance, second was like bleh though.

    I had fun with resistance 3 but the replay value isn't there. It was just grab whatever weapon and shoot. No kind of strategy that I can recall. The story was also screwed up. It answered nothing from the previous titles.

    none of their games were ever perfect but they are definitely a B+ developer. sometimes they throw in an A game and that's cool. i think sunset drive might be an A game...but i also heard it was going to be a kinect game...which kind of kills it. then again, they are talented, maybe they will use Kinect to its fullest.

    Project spark is definitely AAA. there is so much you will be able to do with the tools they give you. The beta is great. Some of the user created stuff is pretty good.

    Your definition of AAA seems to be very different from most. Sounds like if the game is good it's AAA. lol

    Project Spark looks like a fun PC game, but not for console, imo.

    AAA means huuuge budget, a bit like your summer blockbuster type movies

    I don't really think there are that many games that deserve the AAA title, outside of your GTA's and COD's.

    AAA doesn't mean they have to be good either

    A lot of gamers are confused as to what a AAA game is. Clever marketing and help from the gaming press leads gamers to think AAA means quality, but the truth is that it has more to do with production values, the budget, the manpower that went into it, and its market values.

    It's not a new definition. If I'm not mistaken it's been that way. It's not about what we think it is or should be. We don't determine what's AAA. It's sure isn't just about quality, that's for sure.
