  • マリオ

    Got so excited when I saw this in the Xbox Games Store.

  • Jonathan Lee Kort

    What about Xbox One?

    • mcmax3000

      That would be a question for the developers, not anyone at Microsoft.

    • Death Dealer

      It’s coming soon later this summer apparently. I still have to finish the one we got for free some time ago…

      • Not_true

        Stop spamming disqus comments with “sony pauper” fanboy hate, lies, and FUD. You are evil.

    • ElektroDragon

      Agreed, can’t wait to play a Magic game with 1000GS. :D

  • Beano

    I’m still waiting for the 2014 expansions to go on sale. I can wait a long time.

  • Some guy

    I wonder if that will also turn out to be a GWG.

  • CrypticSpoon

    Why are there still 2 different arcade boxart headers? (ie Abyss Odyssey earlier today)

  • 13zayden

    WARNING! – the game changed this year to a “Pay-to-Win” type model. Your $10 base purchase does not grant you (eventual) access to all cards. If it works the same as the ios version, then you have to pay another $20-$30 for booster packs to be competitive.

    • ImTheMetalLord

      And how is that different then any other years?

      • 13zayden

        In past years, the $10 purchase would let you play until you unlocked EVERY launch day card. Now it will cost you $30-$40 to get access to every card available today.

        This is all just for the base set. Both past games and this game will include expansions with more to buy and unlock later.

    • マリオ

      You’re such a liar or a bad reader. You can purchase the full unlocked deck or you can unlock the decks card by card (the slow way) in-game. It’s basically like a $5 cheat code.

      • oldino

        Premium cards can’t be unlocked through normal matches, you can only buy premum booster, about 2$ each. And 14 packs are required to collect all premium cards.

      • Listen_carefully

        no 2HG thats all we need to know for 90% of the xbox magic player not to buy this fail magic game this year .

  • Blue

    Yu-Gi-Oh! >

    • Does Not Equal

      YGO arrived six years after MtG.

      • Ross Kemp

        That’s wonderful .

  • Bennijin

    £7.99 lol no. Costs more than the others and contains even less which is amazing considering they’re all the same.

    • Jeff Shoup

      all of them are not the same. man you must not even game magic, loser!

      • マリオ

        They definitely aren’t all the same. I love this series. So addicting.

      • Bennijin

        …I have to admit, I never imagined someone could ever be called a loser for NOT playing Magic. How times have changed!

        I just find them to be few and far between. They seem identical to me but then it might just be me since all CoDs and FIFAs look the same to me too.

        • Does Not Equal

          Do you even magic, bro?

          • Ross Kemp

            That’s fascinating .

  • Jeff Shoup

    I wont buy till this is out for XB1 hate how major nelson lied to all of us! Its only out for 360 and “NOT” Andriod and “NOT” tablet and “NOT” XB1! Microsoft get your lazy thumbs out of your lazy butts and do something about this. I did not spend $700 on an XB1 to game on 360! And major nelson great job for being an habitual liar!

    • Tel Prydain

      Actually, it’s on my Android right now… I’d rather play it on my XB1, but apparently MS hate my money.

      • ImTheMetalLord

        Yea they were just spouting out a lot of nonsense. Trolling if you ask me.

      • Guest

        I only do Xbox products and nothing else cause nothing else can compare to the power of the XB1!

    • Bornstellar

      You fools realize that MS doesn’t develop this game. It will arrive on XBONE later, when the developers and Wizards of the Coast decide to.


  • Vince

    Is this a sports game?

    • ImTheMetalLord

      Card Game

      • Jeff Shoup

        You should change your twitter to something that suits you more like UrTheGayLord!

        • ImTheMetalLord

          You follow me to insult me? Grow up and don’t be such a troll.

        • MURD3R HE WROTE

          thanks for the link above. that’s awesome, very helpful.

  • Winter soldier

    Bought it on steam, game sucks full of mircos it has become pay2win

    • Some guy

      You don’t understand, it’s a magic board game simulator, having to pay for every card only make the game more immersive. This game is groundbreaking, you just can’t handle how inovative this game is.

      P.S. I can’t take credit for any of that, I’m just repeating what EA said about dungeon Keeper.

      • ImTheMetalLord

        And what does EA have to do with this game?

        • Some guy

          Just in case someone took what I said seriously, guess I should also have said EA had nothing to do with the game and that it was just a joke about the current state of the industry and how games are becoming pay2win then complaining when people don’t buy and play them.


    Would love to see this come to the xbox one.

  • Listen_carefully

    No magic 2015 for me , no more 2HG and they just want money with the micros transactions. i bough all the magic games on my 360. i will never buy a game if they don’t give good multiplayer. Wizards biggest fail !

  • Jeff Shoup

    So pathetic that Major Nelson lies to us that he has to cover it up by removing are posts if you dont like it Larry pull down your blog. I am a very dedicated Xbox owner of all 3 versions and if you cant handle the back lash for when your wrong man up to it dont be child and remove postings for gosh shakes your a man aren’t you????????

    • Nick Peck

      Yup, I’m sure it’s his fault and not the creators that it happened. How about waiting for them to say something. Obviously something happened and the game isn’t ready on the other platforms.

      I could honestly care less for this game or any game like it, but hiccups happen all of the time.

  • Jeff Shoup

    I wont buy till this is out for XB1 hate how major nelson lied to all of us! Its only out for 360 and “NOT” Andriod and “NOT” tablet and “NOT” XB1! Microsoft get your lazy thumbs out of your lazy butts and do something about this. I did not spend $700 on an XB1 to game on 360! And major nelson great job for being an habitual liar!

    • Bubba Bullock Jr.

      You spent $700 on your xboxone? Yikes!

    • Nick Peck

      I’m pretty sure MS doesn’t make this game so when the dev gets around to releasing it for other platforms they will. Be patient and smart is stead of the opposite.

  • Paris Vaunter

    Don’t believe the hate! I got this on Steam and it’s not pay to win. You play the campaign, you unlock cards, and you build decks. That’s it and it’s really good. Sure you can buy booster packs and booster packs are great but they don’t guarantee a win. You’ll need smarts to win and last time I checked they ain’t selling smarts as dlc. I understand that people are upset because the 2HG, challenges, and the Revenge campaign are gone but honestly I never played those modes. I only ever played Sealed Play multiplayer so right now I’m loving Magic 2015. This is a fun game guaranteed to give you hours of magic carpet rides even if you only have hardwood floors.

    • Mariusz Gromada

      1 vs 1 games are too predictable, that’s why most people love 2HG. In
      2013’s and 2014’s editions I played only 2HG and nothing else. Other
      modes are just boring. That’s why I’ll never buy the 2015.

  • Liquidfx Xboxdude

    i have never been a fan of card games. i remember seeing dudes playing it in the bookstore while i went over to get the latest penthouse magazine or high times. they were really into it though.

    • http://www.carincress.com/ Xenmic

      I never understood it either…but everyone has their own likes/dislikes

  • Chris Walter

    Be prepared for this to happen over and over again. Their new model is to stagger the release of games so you buy it on both systems. pathetic.people only want this for the xbone but alot of people are just gonna throw down on the 360 version as well. my xbone has collected dust since titanfall became boring, this was supposed to have given me a reason to turn it on. nope. shouldve bought a ps4…

    • Winter soldier

      its even worse on the PS4 dude havent used mine since infamous and before that since I finished knack and killzone

    • Michael Burden

      Curious, isn’t this the same thing said about games being released on the Xbox One before the 360, like Halo: Spartan Assault, Max: The Curse of Brotherhood, Titanfall, Peggle 2 and Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare?

  • ImTheMetalLord

    I must say I’m really enjoying this game. Back in 2010 I picked up the first Magic game not having any clue how the card game was played and never had played any card games like this whatsoever. Back then it was all a learning experience for me and it was a fun way to get introduced to the game. Now I have not bought any other years version of this game until now and I must say it’s a blast but of course I’m comparing it to something from 5 years ago and this game is light years better than that.
