Xbox One and Xbox 360 to get original TV shows early 2014

How economically feasible is it to launch tv shows that are exclusive to two video game consoles? It doesn't make any sense.

EA bullish on PS4 and Xbox One launch sales

wattsn26

5 years ago

Correction: "Our friends at Microsoft..."

I'm almost certain these exclusivity deals with EA/Microsoft will bring about the return of DRM and used games restrictions so I'm gonna stick with 360/PS3/PS4/Wii U and PC and stay away from the XB1

PC makes sense. Xbox 360 does not if the servers don't link up with EVE Online.

CCP needs to seriously consider moving it to PC if they want it to remain relevant once Planetside 2 gets released on PS4

How Uncharted influenced PS4 exclusive The Order: 1886

wattsn26

5 years ago

he wants to rekindle that feeling, that "wow!", we all had upon completing them.
Please do this. I loved Uncharted 2 and thought Uncharted 3 was great but it never really recaptured how I felt about UC2.

Ready At Dawn are very underrated and they have tons of talent. "Daxter" and GoW Ghost of Sparta are some of my favorite games ever. I do believe they could be the next Naughty Dog if this game turns out as good as I hope it will

EA insists it's not favouring Microsoft over Sony

wattsn26

5 years ago

Titanfall console exclusivity pretty much makes his statement irrelevant. Microsoft was about to implement piracy killing DRM and have a stranglehold on the used game market. And mere days before the Xbox One was announced they decided to kill online passes...that and pure moneyhatting is why EA is giving Microsoft a ton of Xbox console exclusive stuff in the launch window.

I'm actually worried about Microsoft re-adding the DRM and used game policy in the future for this very reason.

I've decided which console I'm buying this year...

wattsn26

5 years ago

There are many people that will buy a launch PS4 just for that "I need to have it" mentality, I pretty much have that mentality since I've never really bought a launch console Day 1, it's always been a few months afterwards or a long time afterwards.

It's true that a good library is needed but I'm also familiar with how the Vita launched with its big launch lineup and how that backfired.

I wholly expect Sony to have new IPs, established IPs, and a ton of indie games on PS4 so I (hopefully) won't regret my purchase, but my PS3 will continue to be played for Beyond Two Souls, PS+ games, a backlog, and GTA V.

Won't publishers shut this down as fast as they did gamesharing on PS3? It pretty much was the reason most early Capcom PSN games had online-only DRM. With the 24-hour check they could implement the family sharing plan much easier than without it.

Either way, it's a neat feature for everyone with an XB1 and a good internet connection

If you're blaming it on transition to next gen...what sense does it make to have "Dead Rising 3" exclusive to one platform?...Why make "Monster Hunter 4" a Japan exclusive for the 3DS? Why put 1000 people to develop a Resident Evil game (a game that would most likely sell 2 million on each platform)?

Capcom has been making stupid decisions ever since the start of this generation. And I blame them and only them for their problems

@Alcifer I love linear games that aren't corridor shooters or hand-holdy.

If anything they should take note of "The Witcher 2" "Arkham Asylum" and "The Last of Us" on how to give the player's freedom but also lets the developer tell the story they want to tell.

If they truly get the gameplay to look as good as the cinematic then I will be very happy. The setting and the developer is what makes me interested in this game.
