    Microsoft Confirms Scalebound is Cancelled - IGN

    Well, looks like Scalebound was cancelled today. What a shame because I was looking forward to this game. I'm sure the "Blue Side" is having a field day with this news.

    Funny but this one never came near my radar. I watched the presentation last year or the year before and thought Nah.

    Scalebound Cancelled.

    DAMNIT! I was looking forward to this for so long. I even had a CE pictured. Either the dude's headphones that the dude last E3 (I think?) wore during the on stage demo at which I said to tekno 'he's wearing the character's headphones. That's probs gonna be in the CE' or a dragon statue

    Needless to say I'm bumped. Scalebound, crackdown 3 and another were 3 MSXclusives that I was looking forward to...

    Well now's horizon zero dawn gonna be my scalebound 😜
    @1xbox , nahh, I need to find something good 😈 :P

    The reaction to the news of Scalebound is a bit too much.

    People being pissed at Microsoft, people being pissed at Platinum Games. As much as I wanted this game too, people need to get over it. Games, movies, shows, and every type of media gets cancelled. What can one as a consumer do really? Nothing, you get over it and move on.

    There's plenty of games releases this year for the Xbox, whether they're third party, first party, or sequels to existing IPs, these are great games coming out. It's very rare for one game to define or be the death of a console. I'm sure Xbox will do just fine without Scalebound. Scalebound was not going to redefine the Xbox brand in any way. Probably give it a small boost, but nothing to the measure of say Halo or Gears.

    Then you have the incompetent Sony-pony group at NeoGaf who's having a field day with this news and chanting, "hurrah, this is the end of Xbox!" How much more of an idiot can one be over there?

    I'm a big Xbox fan and everyone knows it. Yes, I'll laugh when something bad happens on the Sony side, but at the same time, I'm not dumb enough wishing that the PS4 just completely goes away. Both companies and brands need each other. You dont want one brand and that's it.

    So for those Neogaf people, this is what I think about you....

    So what do you guys think? Are you that brokenhearted that Scalebound is cancelled that you're just pissed at Microsoft or Platinum? Are you at the point of saying "nooo, I have nothing to play!"

    Comment and be open. We're all adults and we can take it.

    @TeknoBlast , I can understand why gamers are getting angry. It's not just necessarily about the game being cancelled at the time that it did.

    Yes it's unfortunate that the game's being cancelled after seeing/hearing so much. So ppl obviously got attached. But the main factor that ppl are getting worked up, in my opinion, can be described as emotional jab.

    The reason isn't because it named the studios Microsoft or Platinum Games, but because Hideki Kamiya was involved. It was a familiarity thing. A lot of ppl know him and if not by name, almost every article names why ppl should know him, he's worked on Resident Evil series and Bayonetta.

    People know these games and love them, so every time they see his name, they hold him up like he's on a pedestal. They want to see 'his work' and grow emotionally attached when his name pops up.

    Couple that with the fact that he's vocal on Twitter and the uncertainty for why the game's actually cancelled and you get ppl who grew emotionally attached to something they'll never get. Kinda like the highschool girl you want, but never got and you start resenting her... Like a bad horror movie.

    This is my reason why ppl are upset/angry about cancellation. Same thing happend when first the new Silent Hill was cancelled. Cause Hideki was involved, lots of backlash.
