MS: Crackdown tease at XBOne reveal just a tease
A Crackdown icon shown during the event at which Microsoft unveiled the Xbox One wasnt accidental, Microsofts Phil Spencer told IGN.
While Spencer didnt clarify the exact significance of the Xbox One tile, he did say that it was deliberate.
"Oh ... Crackdown is one of my favorite games, and not just because its a Microsoft first-party game," Spencer said. "I have a lot of love for that franchise. The homage to Crackdown in the reveal screenshots was... I know there was some, like, Did we accidentally sneak that? It wasnt accidental. Definitely."
You can see the allusion to the open-world third-person action franchise highlighted in the picture above. Its behind Yusuf Mehdi, senior vice president for Microsofts interactive entertainment business, at the bottom left corner of the center screen.
The series stands at two installments: Crackdown (Realtime Worlds, 2007) andCrackdown 2 (Ruffian Games, 2010), both of which were published by Microsoft Studios.
