#1SeromontisPosted 9/10/2013 6:48:27 AM
Can anyone provide a list of Microsoft's main IPs? (Franchises only)

I know the following:

Halo
Forza
Gears Of War
Fable
Mass Effect
Banjo Kazooie
Perfect Dark
Killer Instinct

What else am I missing?

This. Microsoft never owned Mass Effect. I believe they just published the first one, initially.

Shouldn't they own more Rare IP's like Cobra Triangle, Snake Rattle n Roll and RC Pro Am?

I would guess Nintendo owns those IPs.

How?
They ported Snake Rattle n Roll to Genesis,
And they made a remake of RC Pro Am called Championship Pro-Am for the Genesis as well.

A lot of those have potential, shame MS just sits on them.

I would love to see another Blinx game.

Fingers crossed for Sony to enable PSN name change!!

I believe the topic is less "what IPs does microsoft own?", and more "what IPs are exclusive to xbox consoles?" which would include IPs owned by other companies. That would make TCs original list correct, except for Mass Effect.
