Hall: 'DayZ' can run on PS4 and Xbox 720 but publisher requirements are annoying

XMNR: Bohemia Interactive's Dean Hall gave a status update on the "DayZ" standalone project Friday and also answered some community questions where he addressed the possibility of the PC mod conversion appearing on next-gen consoles like the Playstation 4 and Xbox 720. (DayZ, PC, PS4, Xbox One)

lmao, how does this person get through the day.
fluffydelusions  +   807d ago
Czech based company so maybe it doesn't translate over to what we see it as but yeah I see what you mean lol.

The article says it is a he.
ApolloTheBoss  +   807d ago
Please bare with it and release this game on consoles, please!
Tr10wn  +   807d ago
Focus on the PC version first but yeah console version would be cool.
NastyLeftHook0  +   807d ago
3 disagrees? why?
omi25p  +   807d ago
its n4g. Duh.

PC fanboys upset about losing an exclusive.

But since the Xbox is getting a clone of the game with only more on the way, not seeing why the the DayZ guys don't make it themselves.

Magical N4G disagree fairies. They roam the articles invisibly, but if you look closely enough, their droppings can be found everywhere.
Blackdeath_663  +   807d ago
there is huge support for this game, it is only natural that they would be upset if the developer shafts them and delays the game to release it on console in the same way that all the wiiU fans went apeshit when ubisoft delayed the next rayman game that was supposed to be a wiiU launch title exclusive to release it on ps3 and xbox. i'm sure the developer can bare with it and release it on consoles if it gets them more money but it wouldn't be worth it since they will lose a ton of fans and the internet will mindlessly rage over the matter
Lockon  +   807d ago
Hell yeah release this on consoles! I've always wanted to play DayZ but my computer isn't made for gaming :(
Rivitur  +   807d ago
Go get state of decay when it comes out then or Class 4 if you want zombie MP on console.
WeskerChildReborned  +   807d ago
I'm gonna be getting a PC soon anyway but i agree, this game looks simple yet very fun and it would be cool if everyone can enjoy the experience.
Allsystemgamer  +   807d ago
It's actually far from simple. There's so many mechanics needed to survive. Food. Temperature. Wounds. The zombies. Other players.
Gamer1982  +   807d ago
Who cares about a console version? It's only big as a mod once they start to charge people for this it will lose its cult status and people won't play. People will disagree but it's a fact. Look at counterstrike for consoles for proof. The biggest FPS mod of all time. FAILED on consoles..
creatchee  +   807d ago
Even though it began as a mod, Counterstrike was and is still sold on PC. Millions of copies, both box and digital.

Counterstrike on the original XBOX was in the top ten most played games on LIVE until support was dropped.

How did it fail? Global Offensive? That doesn't really count, as it's technically a sequel.
sourav93  +   807d ago
So wait, you're saying people only like it because it's a free mod? So the countless of people who are waiting for DayZ standalone are crazy?
Blacktric  +   807d ago
"It's only big as a mod once they start to charge people for this it will lose its cult status and people won't play"

Meanwhile, they are implementing sh*t ton of features like possibility of contracting diseases and possibility of those diseases creating an epidemic at towns with the most infected player (with sickness, not zombie virus) gatherings. Mod-able guns, being able to create your own underground bases, full ragdoll animations, homemade weapons like bow and arrows and so on to ensure that this will truly be a full fledged game. Oh and, they'll follow Minecraft's pricing model and the game's very first developer diary video managed to get close to 1 million views in about 3 days.

But you can keep claiming that it won't sell and will lose its cult status while blatantly forgetting that CS: GO was made by a horrible third party developer that was hired by Valve.
Allsystemgamer  +   807d ago
I don't know if u noticed but the MOD SOLD 2 million copies of ARMA2. So ur logic is flawed.

Sony and MS seriously need to look into their policies when it comes to making games for their system. Indie games are the future and sony needs to realize that.
fluffydelusions  +   807d ago
I _hear_ Sony is way better with indie devs than MS. I do believe both have some ridiculous sum of money however to get your game in their particular store and also to push updates.

They still need restriction, otherwise every shitty game gets published

Blacktric  +   807d ago
"Indie games are the future..."


No. You know what's future? Games made by "independent studios" with a decent budget. Games like Braid, FEZ (jesus christ) and Limbo can't and will never ever be the future of gaming. You want to invest your high hopes? Do it to studios like Bohemia or CD Projekt RED, both of which loves and respect their fans. Unlike EA, Activision and Valve, all of which have zero comunication with their fans.
kevnb  +   807d ago
this is the kind of thing you miss out on consoles. There are things you miss on pc too, its the nature of different platforms.
Unless state of decay is good.
NaiNaiNai  +   807d ago
The only things I miss out on consoles are half-ass unsupported games and costly DLC.

Neither of which I would ever miss.
Norrison  +   807d ago
I think you get that, games are shutdown after 2 years on consoles, there's PC games that are still 10 years old with an online community.
What costly DLC? Most PC exclusives have free DLC
superterabyte  +   807d ago
Nope i'm afraid you miss out on exclusives. Good one's an all. Uncharted, killzone gran turismo forza etc.

Your platform is not perfect; no platform is remember that. Why the constant need to justify playing on a PC by rubbishing consoles? Consoles are good as well.

And im not bias I know the advantages of Pc i've wanted day z for a while now so if it came out on console i'd be chuffed to bits.

Also popular PC games are not always perfect. Minecraft uses Java.

You will be missing out The Last Of Us, the most anticipated game of this year. And the funny thing is you will be spending 1000$ to run the high-end PC game, but The Last Of Us is actually, technically superior than any PC game ever created in some ways.
PC is obviously the best system on this planet, no doubt about that, but you don't get what you pay for. Most of the best games are exclusively on consoles.
Allsystemgamer  +   807d ago
And the 50+ exclusives releasing this year alone on pc
Bladesfist  +   807d ago
@plaZeHD So the PS3 has a handful of exclusives. The PC has a whole load more. While you enjoy the last of us I will be playing Company of heroes 2, Starcraft HoTS, Arma 3, DayZ ect.
maniacmayhem  +   807d ago
This is a huge brick wall for a lot of developers that Sony/MS need to address and quickly. I understand that both companies want to make sure that product on their systems are of a high quality and are up to their standards but it is really bothersome and a huge obstacle for smaller devs who want their games out on a console to start generating a profit.

Which is why we see a lot of the more innovative, riskier titles going to PC or mobile.

"...required that force some weird design changes in games (I don’t like tutorials!)."

Hahaha, that is all I have to say to that. I know exactly what he is referring too. Also you send your game off for review and sometimes the game doesn't come back for TWO to THREE weeks after submission. And then when it does they fail you for some BS standard violations. Time and even more money! There has to be a better way.
fluffydelusions  +   807d ago
Yes pretty much. $99 buys you into iOS/Amazon app store yearly. $25 is lifetime on Android. Steam not sure. That said, you can publish whatever you want for PC on your own website if you choose e.g. minecraft
koston3647  +   807d ago
I would pay large sums of money to play DayZ on my next gen console...
I think there are a lot of gamers out there that would agree with me...

The game is stunning
NYC_Gamer  +   807d ago
I hope if the console is made it allows cross platform play with PC
mynameisEvil  +   807d ago
Noooooo, that would never work. Remember Shadowrun? Cross-play between PC and 360? Console gamers were getting completely messed up.

Then there's the problem with community. Let's just say that there's a reason I cancelled my Xbox LIVE subscription several years ago. The words "fag," (and its variants) "s**t," "f**k," (and its variants" and the intense amount of whining may or may not have contributed to my cancelling it. From what I can tell, PS3 players are typically older and more reserved, though a lot of them just don't have headsets, so that may just be why.
Ultr  +   807d ago
Portal already does it :)
superterabyte  +   807d ago
I honestly don't see why PC games might not actually be playable on the PS4 I mean yes there are issues that need to be dealt with but the ps3 supports a keyboard and mouse and with ram upgrades and the altering of the console parts to be more developer friendly as well as an improved OS I feel there will be more good ports next gen
mynameisEvil  +   806d ago
Portal's also a puzzle game where cooperation is key. DayZ isn't that.
bronxsta  +   807d ago
Publishers force tutorials? Interesting and disturbing
wenaldy  +   807d ago
For a second my heart stopped beating, i thought it was WarZ.. pheww..
Dlacy13g  +   807d ago
I am sure many on the pc side see these policies as old school or prohibitive...but they also are there for a reason and this is to try and prevent games like WarZ from being released on the platform and rip off un-knowing gamers like WarZ did on Steam.
aliengmr  +   807d ago
It also holds up patches and updates, so its a double edge sword.

Then there's the problem of a great idea not passing certification.

I gladly accept occasional turds like WarZ in an open platform.
Dlacy13g  +   807d ago
I do agree on the double edged sword with regards to patches and updates. That element needs to change for next gen for sure.
Bladesfist  +   807d ago
I can filter what games I want myself, I do not need a company to tell me what I can and can't play because they don't like it.
Skate-AK  +   807d ago
The game looks looks cool and I like the idea. I just think its a lil too much for me to get into.
kostchtchie_  +   806d ago
so long as the PC version does not suffer, it would be great for console gamers to experience this great game, have been playing it since release on legit and private servers
PunkXIV  +   806d ago
Judging by how shi**y that game looks, I'd say it could run on PS3 and 360.
