2K Games confirmed that "BioShock," a revolution in the genre that will forever change the expectations for first-person shooters, will be released exclusively on Xbox 360 and Microsoft Windows next spring.
Nooo! Please stop... Microsoft should stop being so cruel with Sony and their fans. That's just plain wrong! Shame on your Microsoft!
This was already posted on the main page
i aggree bro, MS is killin sh*t left, right and center right now!!!
Bio shock looks CRAZY-BAD!!!!
I was gonna pick up Bioshock for pc anyways, but MS is going crazy with this exclusive stuff. This is getting real excessive.
I have been waiting years since sony killed sega by buying there way into exclusives from third party develpoers, for a company with enough clout to play sony at thier own game.. good on ya microsoft, with you all the way!!
and if things turn out like it has been rumored. sega games are to appear on xbox live arcade.
thats not cruel thats whats sony get for forcing blue ray down your throats.jump ship now or get stuck with a big paper weigth.
Sony has plenty of money. They are a bigger company and their video games division actually turns a profit. I'm saying it seems excessive because these aren't even franchised games. It's one thing when a company acquires a franchise, like Halo, but it's another when they just go out buying exclusive contracts with games that would otherwise be multiplatform like they SC.
Are you saying Sony is a bigger company than MSFT?
Sony doens't have money.
They make loss every quarter for years now. They just took a multimillion dollar bank loan.
Go check up the facts man.
Sony could even go bankrupt over the PS3 story. And their TV department isn't doing great either, losing a lot of market share to Samsung
Yes I'm saying Sony is bigger than Microsoft. Sony has holdings in electronics, video games, music, and movies. The company is larger, and that is a fact.
sony did the exclusive thing like it was going out of style with the PS2...so what is your point?
Sony LCD tv's are manufactured by samsung so i am not sure if your comment makes sense.
MSFT 10x bigger than Sony. Market Cap. They can make anything they want but never will be bigger than MSFT.
Yeah, but who makes the OS that runs the software they use to make those movies and games and edit that music ? Microsoft does. So Either way, Microsoft is still making money.
exclusive fully or is it just a timed exclusive?
would you wait 1-2 years to play a game you really want when the same game it's available now?
no its exclusive for sure it was this drop at 360 press con. thats it exclusive for the 360 and pc so i am sorry ps fan buy a 360 if you want them gems thats not comming over
i am not a ps3 fanboy, i am not even a ps3 fan. I have a 360 and i dont even plan on buying a ps3 so dont start callin me a ps3 fan
After all the time Bioshock has been around not once have they mentioned the PS3, I am very glad we have this exclusive. 1, 2, KO
Biatchhhhhhhh there it is
MS owns this gen!
"MS owns this gen!"
hehe you are funny
microsoft are taking it to sony big time,sonys not gonna have it all its own way this time... welcome to the future JUMP RIGHT IN
360 exclusive means you don't need to own a 360 to play that game. you can still get it for the PC.
PS3 exclusive means you can not play it unless you own a PS3.
i rest my case...
I meant the only console to get it on is the 360, man sony fanboys sure are jumpy after the Microsoft Smackdown.
and MS fanboys love to say " HA! in your face PS3 fanboys! etc. etc." making a big deal out of nothing. it's nothing because we can still play it on the PC.
don't be offended by my first statement about exclusivity just because it's true for the most part.
the hilarious thing is this is all specialguest can find wrong about the 360's bioshock.
Your fanboyism is quite amusing. How many people are going to spend over 1000 bucks on a PC with dual sli crap that'll be outfased in 3 months then have to upgrade again. In order to get equivalent graphics to the 360.
i never said the 360 version was bad. i actually find the game interesting to begin with.
why are you guys defensive over the exclusivity explaination anyway? it's so easy to bash away about the PS3 not getting this game, yet you guys can't take the heat of a feedback? lol ...hilarious.
Dont be ludicrous! A duel gfx rig be it X1950`s crossfire or 7900/7950`s sli beats both 360 and ps3 hands down, even a single slot solution with either of these cards would offer more gfx power, though not that much more of course. Pc`s by nature will always have the advantage due to the upgradability. But as i said in another post, bang for buck/pounds/rupees or even Lek, the 360 and PS3 offer far and away the best value.
For people like me who don't have a super computer that can play the game at a perfect framerate and with maxed out details (and that is alot of people) and instead of spending thousands on upgrading your computer to get it to play that way and not look ugly and play choppy, we can just buy a 360 for $300 - $400 and the game for $60 and it will look and play almost exactly like it would on one of those $1500 - $2000 plus computers for FAR less. Thats how I see it.
Specialguest is a funny guy.
THis is just a blow to PS3. If it's on PC it doesn't matter. Actually it's a strenght. Real console gamers don't play on their PC's. They don't want to upgrade their GPU's.
The Live anywhere is working. You'll game on your PC. Others will on 360. The combination is God like.
Still. PS3 won't get it. 360 will be having Bioshock on console. For those that don't want to buy a 2000+ dollar/euro PC. For those that only want to invest 300 dollars/euro for a Core or 400 max for a premium console.
If they would make a next gen Jade Empire I would seriously consider picking up a 360 today. I just hope the wii starts getting some killer games like this.
I'm upgrading my pc next year it'll cost about £500. I use my pc every day so i want to upgrade to something which is future proof for the next 2-3 years.
U dont need to pay thousands for a new pc to look as good as the x360.
I'm happy that bioshock is on pc but not too happy about exclusivity deal with M$.
If sony does go bankrupt sometime in the near future its gonna be very bad for console gamers. Competition forces innovation and top quality games and consoles.
If there is no competition M$ wont need to try very hard and will develop sloppy games and consoles at higher prices.
So think about what u want to happen to sony before u shout your mouth off.
Quality games or crappy games? High prices or competitive pricing?
Well that's 500 pounds if you already have the right PC. If you've got an old one it's much much more.
SOny just did it to themselves man if they go bankrupt. Overpromissing & underdelivering
I am glad MS got this exclusive. They're paying Sony back for what they did to the Dreamcast. Wasn't that sh!tty also?
Competition is good. When it's fair. Sony is playing cheap. Promisses, promisses. When do they start to deliver?
i guess you haven't noticed all of the microsoft is doomed posts from all the sony diehards that want no competetion.
Did you read the post right above you. Microsoft fanboys say that stuff too. Fanboys on both sides are too single minded and vitriolic to realize that a lack of competition is bad for the industry.
anyways, that's my point. all of this crap goes both ways. tired of everybody acting like only 1 side has jerks.
Now who were the ignorant uninformed wishful thinking sony fanboys who said that Bioshock was coming to the ps3? Hmm as much as I would like to put the names out there I wont cuz yall know who you are. So its like this:
Fifa 07 and WE 11 are next gen exclusives
Bioshock is an exclusive
Assasins Creed will be on 360
360 can output 1080p
PS3 wont launch in Europe till 2007
And lets not forget Guitar Hero coming to 360.
Has anybody noticed that 360 fans have been
saying this for the longest. It seems like everyday the ps3 fanboys are eating there words.
O and the next thing to be confirmed is microsoft selling 10 million consoles plus by the end of the year.
But man I cant believe they secured a splinter cell exclusive. Unbelievable. Nor can I believe that Kingdom Hearts might come to 360 or the fact that the MArvel MMO is exclusive to the 360.
Can somebody please explain to me how did I lose a bubble?
Remember when sony destroyed dreamcast,that was a awesome console for its time,pay back is a [email protected]
just gose to show that we cant even trust PSM for reliable news sorce because they said "trust us its coming to PS3" wich was false.but anyway what a good day for 360 fans because its only the first day and we got this much great news theres still 2 days left wow.
Another one bites the DUST! XBOX 360 all the way!
it could be 10 great pieces for PS3 and one for Xbox 360 and they would be saying crap like Xbox wins, wins what PS3 ain't even out yet, i asure you PS3 will wipe the floor with the 360, 1 game, 1 stinking game and you people think Xbox 360 has somehow one the olympics of gamming, please i love it when i here the game's that are going exclusive to the 360 and there fans bragging about them, they should have a look at what some of these games are, because there not system sellers, lol someone above mentioned a Marvel game, good luck on that game shifting your Xbox 360's!
Look butt sucker! Did your butt sucking azz happen to see the Alan Wake trailer or did you even bother reading all the great news today announced for 360? I know it's all about the games and let's all be civil but come I mean the proof is right here today that Sony is doomed unless they apologize to MS and start keeping there word! I mean why did you even post on this topic in the 1st place when your obviously a butt sucker or in other words a Sony fan only! I know why and thats because your jealous and afraid that things are about to change! 360 is without a doubt ripping a new hole in the ps3's big bulky shiny Azz! Look at all the trailers and drool you freakin after sex drop!
to the sony fans saying that the PC/360 is not an real exclusive...in away you are wrong.
at the end of the year if you are a PC gamer, and only do P/S console...get your gamertag ready because you will be apart of "LIVE" on the PC...360/PC is M$ and therefore is really one enity. LIVE ANYWHERE
So in away if you are a PC gamer you are part of the 360 world...more and more games will be cross platform. even the 360 controller works on both platforms.
on another note...are you guys seeing the bubbles...i can't see my bubbles or anyone elses?
first of all, i never once stated that the 360 was a bad console and that Live anywhere was bad throughout my entire News4gamer history. i never bash the console itself, just the idiotic fanantics that's all.
ok, so what if i happened to be apart of LIVE anywhere? im not complaining, because i was never anti-MS to begin with silly. i just like to defend the PS3 which get's unfairly bashed to smithereens often.
Where did you get one game????? Ps3 is losing exclusive games left and right lately...With all the news pooring in about the 360 we will all be buying the ps3. because with the way things are going for them the ps3 should cost about $49.99 when it finaly comes out
As a gamer who favors the 360 this news is very good because this is now 1 more exclusive game on a long list of games that I like on the 360.....but as a gamer who also likes the PS3 and some of their exclusive games too; I really don't want to see M$ snag too many great 3rd party exclusives because I think it would be really bad for Sony/Industry. Now by no means am I saying Sony's even close to failing, not at all, but I think there should always be a healthy balance between at least 2 consoles because it makes healthy competition as we can see by both company's trying to out do each other. Anyway, I'm not crying for Sony, they deserve a few gut shots, but they are big boys....360 fans are fooling themselve's if they think this means "its over!" Sony better be careful though 'cause it seems as if M$ is starting to throw "haymakers"....1 or 2 more of those to the dome and it COULD be "lights out." CAUTION: Sony don't help M$ out by making anymore of your OWN MISTAKES, or this could get really ugly. Damm, I love BOXING!
where are all the sony fans. good they have stayed in their ps3 fourms. lol this game looks amazing
Many people were banned remember, ever since then the site has been quiet, it's almost as if a war has happened on this site, guess what PS3 is gonna kick some 360 butt!
Your not the sharpest tool in the shed are you? Everyone knows the two machines are equal in power and graphical might with slightly different methods of producing virtually identical graphics. It all comes down to the games and so far PS3 hasnt got a single exclusive game announced that I would buy if it came to 360 (maybe Resistance Fall of B1tches). PS3 is a Japaneese console and the list of games for the rest of the non pokemon keychain loving world is weak at best. I Buy whatever game rocks and whatever console I need to play it on. So far it looks like I am gonna save 600 bucks for a new surfboard.
he is the most immature and annoying terd on this site (hes probly gametime, hes immature enuff)
if you can't say the 360 is better than the ps3 because the ps3 isn't out yet, wouldn't that be the EXACT same reason why you can't say the ps3 is better than the 360? because it's not out yet, you haven't played it, or any of these great games that we've only seen video for. let me break it down for everyone again. EVERYBODY has DIFFERENT tastes. what i like, you may not, and vice versa. personal preference in games is the only difference between the 2 that matters.
At this point, to say the 360 does not have any good games is flat out stupid. It doesn't do anything to promote the PS3 and doesn't leave you any ground to stand on.
Quality 360 games:
COD2, GRAW, Oblivion, PGR3, Condemned, Saint's Row, Dead Rising, Splinter Cell:DA, Mass Effect, Gears of War, Tiger 07, NCAA 07, Madden 07, NBA 2K7, COD3, BIA: Hell's Highway, Asassins Creed, Halo 3, Crackdown, Too Human, Forza 2, Fable 2, Lost Planet, Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Rainbow 6: Vegas, PGR4, LOTR, GTA IV, Resident Evil 5, Bioshock, Unreal Tournament 2007, Ninja Gaiden 2, The Darkness, Alan Wake, Shadowrun, FEAR, Half Life 2, Halo Wars, Kane & Lynch, etc.
You know, I could keep going on but I'm getting sick of typing. The PS3 will have its share as well, but to say the 360 has nothing is just a really bad argument that does nothing to promote your cause. You are going to have to except that the 360 is a strong competitor. Even though the PS3 is faltering, it will hold up its end eventually. What it will come down to is price, PC connectivity, bluray/HD-DVD, and exclusive games. This is what will convince people of what to purchase. To say the 360 isn't coming strong with quality games is just ridiculus. To say you prefer the PS3's games is a matter of opinion and one you are right to have. Personally, I'm happy with what the 360 offers, but that's just me.
idk my 360 has just been sitting around. I havent used it since oblivion came out and just recently with madden but i didnt play it long because it isnt any different then 06 and i am tired of EA's half@$$ed games but i cannot wait for gears of war thats gonna be awesome
i love shooters on the xbox console but if it is as bad as prey on the 360 compared to playing it on my computer ill just get it for my computer
"its a matter of taste said the ape and swallowed his piece of soap"
i dont think that i'm happy with the general idea of an "exclusive game" at all. For every game that is exclusive there are hundreds of gamers that cant play this game because they had a different taste in their hardware purchase.
But if we must live with exclusives then i must say that i'm pretty happy here in 360 land. Maybe someday buying a ps3 when they are cheaper (available) here in europe.
System Shock 2 is in my Top 10 all time favorite list so i expect great things from Bioshock
I love my 360. Bioshock as an exclusive isn't any shock to me. I had a gut feeling all along. There are some awesome looking exclusives coming for the PS3 as well, however I will wait for a price drop. I think exclusives are an important part of gaming, without them, there wouldn't be much competition. Competition leads to price drops and better games because everyone tries to out-do the other system.
But it says that Bioshock is a 360 console exclusive when it releases this spring. This could be like an Oblivion type exclusivity. We could see ps3 Bioshock in summer '07 according to this wording. Maybe its like with the ps3 versions of fifa and pes and Irrational isn't as far along with the ps3 version as they are with the 360 and pc versions, causing a delayed ps3 release.
Of course my speculation could be entirely wrong. I'll be getting it in the spring for my pc anyways.
