MS will just splurge on whatever weak willed 3rd party studios they can find. It's worked for them in the past although it's more of a temporary fix, here's hoping their 1st party get to grips with the new hardware asap.
Belking  +   1015d ago
Dude, you shouldn't be that naive. These people don't know jack about MS or the industry itself. They just look for articles on the net(whether true or not) and gossip.

How can you be behind 6 months if you don't have much to show before that? It's not like Microsoft has been pumping out 1st party games for the past few years. Nintendo and Sony seem to be able to handle both handheld and console game supplies, especially Sony.

I'd like to see Microsoft invest more into new studios and not just with the same ip's or XBLA and Kinect games.

The Kotaku rumor isn't going to hurt a fly.

MS just simply needs to show off the goods over the course of these 3 months and all the fake speculation is going to cease.

All they need to do is show off the vision, show off the box, and denounce the rumors, save the megatons for E3 and it's going to be a whole new ball game.

Popcorn will be popped.

Microsoft aren't Sony they don't have the same business model. They aren't a first party focused firm, they don't own 20 games development Studios.

I wish everyone would stop using that tired fantard argument, and stop telling MS in their infinite knowledge that they need to be more like a company that hasn't made a profit in over 4 years.
Chaostar  +   1014d ago
Actually, I think it's much more naive to completely dismiss a rumour than to mildly speculate on the possibility that it's true. Nowhere did I make the assertion that this rumour is 100% fact.

You people just don't get it...
Those who really want this to be really don't understand that IF true, MS will buy Third Party Exlclusives left and right... so, yeah, can't beat them, unless you don't wanna play those amazing third party games, I don't see why anyone will want this to happen, it's a win-win situation for Xbox owners, not so much for everyone else ;)
nypifisel  +   1014d ago

That's just stupid. Do you think anyone would consider it financially feasible for Microsoft to buy third party titles like that. It isn't. Third parties are even more reluctant than ever to do exclusive deals. Especially on a new console launch when the install base are so small.
EVILDEAD360  +   1014d ago
Unless you are oblivious to standard gaming practices in console gaming, you would clearly know that ALL consoles use Third Party exclusives.

Both Sony and MS had Third Party exclusives THIS gen and both Sony and MS will have them Next gen.

If you find fault with MS then you also should find fault with Sony as well.

pixelsword  +   1014d ago

A. The 6mo. rumor is true and Kotaku knows enough to kiss buns early to keep their website afloat. This would be wise for Kotaku, because six months is a long time to be left in the cold because they dissed Sony. Kotaku might reason that someone inside Sony's executive enclave may decide that supporting a website that tends to give them the finger first chance they get is a bad idea, because doing such won't help with putting Sony back in the black


B. They posted total bull to get people riled-up just to get "slammed" with good news and make aspects of the Microsoft announcement appear better than what it actually is (it's reverse-psychology, of sorts). Whether Kotaku is being played for suckers or not is not relevant because people have been trying to kick them off of this site longer than HHG, but for some reason they persist; so in that regard Kotaku can make up the dumbest Shinola they want, because pretty much no other gaming site is/was held responsible for what they say except HHG. I still remember when GameTrailers were caught fudging the appearance for graphics on more than one occasion on videos (for Sony, I think) but yet they were never kicked off of any site or their status lowered by anyone.

Either way, it's useless to speculate at this point until MICROSOFT actually says something, not Kotaku or anyone else acting upon a rumor.

More rumors lets wait for MS to actually confirm something

Also it's not like MS depend on its 1st party studios

Most rumors that leaked for ps4 happened to have a lot of actual info so sme rumors maybe true but still we will not see the complete picture till E3
_-EDMIX-_  +   1014d ago
Agreed, but Kotaku is one of the sites that leaked out those correct PS4 specs including the controller. I see this as being 80% true.

MS first party is pretty much Kinect Focused and they have leaned on 3rd parties to get timed exclusives for them MANY times before. This rumor just has oh too much truth in it based on what MS has done in the past. We'll see at E3, but if EA shows there game at E3 as a Xbox Fusion exclusive.......then clearly MS really has nothing in store for the core but timed games and Kinect.

Syntax-Error  +   1014d ago
Not only is this story old, but the original author wrote a reprise to it. Said it before and i'll say it again...MICROSOFT SHOULD NOT RELEASE CONSOLE FOR THE HOLIDAY SEASON. They should release the console in the 1st quarter of 2014. There's no rush considering not many people will buy the PS4 at launch anyway. With PS3 still having legs and an imminent price drop of the PS3, I am sure that PS4 might come out the gate slowly. You're looking at an end of year onslaught of games for current gen. No one is really ready to plop down $500 on a console when current consoles have so many good games getting released. People have to remember that Watch Dogs, Black Flag, and Battlefield 4 are also going to be on current gen as well as next gen. THE LAST GUARDIAN HAS GONE A WHOLE GENERATION AND STILL NOT READY. People always want to throw stones, but never in the right direction.

What lets you down there is $500. But for that, you have a decent argument. That shows quite clearly that you want to stack your argument by choosing the highest 'suggested' price so far $500 and not the widely accepted price of $399.

Other than that I see no problem with the logic here and it is definitely ONE possibility.

Well said dude.

Some people want the Xbox to fail so bad and it hurts them that MS managed to triple its fanbase this gen.

I remember before the 360 launched a certain faction was screaming victory and saying that Sony will kill the 360 like they did the Dream Cast (R.I.P). - see 2007 N4G 360 article.

Here is hoping MS delivers with the 720 with games and gives us an all in one beast of a machine and provides more countless memories like they did with the 360 :)

Edit: Am I the only one who is super hype for Alan Wake 2 and cannot wait to see what Remedy does with next a next gen console.

Also I would love a Lost Odyssey 2 but dont think Mist Walker has time to make it and I dont want anybody but Mist Walker to make it.

you need to ask yourself why they want ms to fail then compare that why the other people want the ps4 to fail. in the end the side that wants the x720 to fail actually have good thought out reasons. the people who want the ps4 to fail have no reason at all just fanboyism.

1. pay to play online yearly money subscription that can go up in price

2. not as many 1st party titles compared to nintendo and sony.

3 little variety in exclusives

4 kinect no one likes the focus on that

5. with all the being behind crap no one wants a rrod again.

these are only 5 reasons i could do more but whats the reason to hate ps4?

1.the console will not be high price sony even said it wouldnt be.

2 mic in every box and you can plug it into your control

3. increased features and cross chat and video and even more stuff then xbl in this area

4 improved controller

5. most powerful system with tons of 1st party devs and exclusives in different generes.

why do you guys hate the ps4? please tell me?

is it because you want to carry over your achievements? is it because you think your friends are all gonna go xbox again which they are not. sometimes you have to let go of the past things like many let go of myspace and embraced facebook. times have changed.

@Kratos_Kills no they will show fake milo vids and trick everyone once again and the xbox fanboys will eat it all up like peasents.

"the people who want the ps4 to fail have no reason at all just fanboyism."

So people can be critical of MS but not of Sony....your comment wreaks of fanboy (as does your name)

Before this gen i was complete Sony fanboy....i eventually bought a 360 after seeing gears of war and xbox live.....having both has certainly made me realize how narrow minded fanboys are.....

What do i want this gen? Both sony and MS to remain competitive....why? because that is better for the consumer as companies are forced to spend more money on games, services etc.

This Gen MS are the clear winner from a business point of view.....

Although PS+ is great value, MS still have what i consider the better online service. Party chat, cross game chat and including a headset were huge wins for MS this gen.....So much so that Sony even mentioned it in their PS4 announcement.

MS triple their market share in one generation.....after how huge the PS2 was, Sony were foolish and complacent at the beginning of this their credit they threw everything they had at it after the disappointing launch but from a business point of view they failed in comparison to last gen. Before you disagree, do you think that prior to PS3 launching, that Sony execs sat around the board table going "ok, well we'll lose 50% of our market share, whilst MS triple their hardware sales and then we'll have to work the entire generation to sell as many consoles as MS" Of course they didn't?!

I give credit to Sony for using MS plan from this gen.....announce first, better controller, headset,sharing features, cross chat.....They have looked at this gen and basically admitted where they fell short and seem to be fixing the issues which i think is fantastic.....

Kinect...... (which doesn't really appeal to me) has been huge for the core gamers really care for it, probably not, but from a business point of view it was a great win for MS. Around 20 million sold i think.....Sony didn't show their console in Feb but did show their version of kinect / ps eye which certainly shows their respect for the device.

i may sound like i side with MS here , but i don't ( i will buy both next gen consoles)..... Just trying to make you who is obviously a PS fanboy open your eyes a little.....

I also don't understand why in a MS story you ask why people hate PS4....i don't?

and why would people hate PS4 for adding a headset, cross chat and for being a powerful system?

As matrixman92 said.

"i cant wait till the 21st so people can get information from official facts."

I'm hyped for Alan Wake 2 also except I'll be playing it on the PC.

Alan Wake was a good game and Remedy did a Good job porting it to PC.

Alan Wake sold very well on the PC so a Day 1 release for Alan Wake 2 is expected instead of a year 2 release like AW1

MS looks to be pushing for a Machine to be the center piece of the Living room and NOT just a gaming machine. Expect way more kinect stuff along side MS usual plans for Timed Exclusives.

I'm Positive MS has been lurking around looking for just the right Dev and game to lock into a Exclusive deal for their new machine

But I expect 343 to pump out another Halo to solidify the X720.

May 21st. will be a Good day!

nukeitall  +   1014d ago

I completely agree with you. The thing here is that Sony's playbook so far is to basically copy MS Xbox 360 strategy and is now getting praise for it. I find that ironic.

Cross game/party chat, included microphone, easier architecture, developer friendly, eye toy with depth tracking, and so on.

Essentially it seems Sony looked at MS this generation and planned the PS4. So far little new and innovative ideas has been shown and maybe it is too early.
condemmedman   1014d ago | Immature | show
DigitalRaptor  +   1014d ago
@ nukeitall

"EyeToy" with depth tracking features were going to happen regardless of Kinect's success as Sony have been working on camera based gaming for years prior to MS buying and utilizing PrimeSense tech - but you'll obviously negate that fact.

It's a shame that Sony aren't copying Microsoft in the one area that truly matters on a gaming console then isn't it, and instead, are pushing ahead and have been for many years in that regard?

And I imagine Sony also copied Microsoft's badass Gaikai digital distribution model? I guess Sony copied the Xbox's instant-play features too. I guess they copied the Xbox's "jump into your friend's game" feature. I guess they copied Xbox's dedicated chip to play games whilst they download feature.

I guess they copied the light bar sensor from the Xbox controller to allow's split screen games to adjust based on where people are sitting. That is just one feature of many.

coolvibu93  +   1014d ago

All your ''reasons'' for hating the X720 are bull and made up because we know nothing about it. You just assume that all the negatives and only the negatives about the 360 automatically translate into the 720 and yet none of the PS3 negatives translate in the PS4, only the PS3 positives: this is clear fanboyism. For example, you still assume Ms will not change their business model about chargec online. Need I remind you MS and Sony once said Wii used motion controls would never be implemented on their consoles? Yet we all know how that ended. As you said times have changed, and companies change business models all the time. Maybe they'll change it, maybe they won't. But don't go stating things you know nothing about as if they are facts. Oh and that ''which can go up in price'' is total Bs you added to make your point more compelling when no signs remotedly point toweards it.
Point 2 and 3 are the same, which you had to separate to reach 5 reasons. Ms has made/acquired 11 new studios in the last 3 years (don't believe me, check their wiki), with 8 of them working on nextgen content as of now, so (hopefully) they should be in a better position than this gen. Remember, Sony didn't start up with all their studios already, it took them time to build up those studios.
5. with all the being behind crap no one wants a rrod again. Did you read? They are late behind 1st party game dev not the console.

All in all, your post reaks of unsubstantiated fanboy crap. At least wait until the 21st.
4Sh0w  +   1014d ago
@ps3 pwns uhm that is the biggest load of crap Ive read in awhile, none of those are logical reasons for wanting a gaming device to fail unless of course you are a dictator and YOU want a world in which there is only one type of home console platform that should exist, ahh exactly modeled like sonys, right? I mean because god knows thats the only way to do business and nobody likes what micro has done with the xbox brand this gen anyway. Im sure the great sales are due to micro buying up their own supply.

""EyeToy" with depth tracking features were going to happen regardless of Kinect's success as Sony have been working on camera based gaming for years prior to MS buying and utilizing PrimeSense tech - but you'll obviously negate that fact."

I don't need to, facts speak for itself. Sony turned away the technology and so did Nintendo. Upon Kinect release, Sony official commented they didn't they the market will accept it.

Sony later back tracked, and essentially said they were surprised it sold so well.

Even after MS success, nobody has really tried to copy them. Still think it would have released?

Sony instead copied Wii with PS Move!

"And I imagine Sony also copied Microsoft's badass Gaikai digital distribution model? I guess Sony copied the Xbox's instant-play features too. I guess they copied the Xbox's "jump into your friend's game" feature. I guess they copied Xbox's dedicated chip to play games whilst they download feature."

Those things you are mentioning is expected to apper on the next Xbox too. There is nothing revolutionary about it, and even if MS released ahead and Sony revealed later wouldn't still be considered copied, because these things for the most part exist on PC. They have just now moved to console so you can say it is copied from PC?

"I guess they copied the light bar sensor from the Xbox controller to allow's split screen games to adjust based on where people are sitting. That is just one feature of many."

What you are mentioning is just a single niche feature, not a strategy.

The sort of thing I'm talking about is a strategy to change how you use your console. For instance, PS Move was that and it was an attempt to get hardcore and casual gamers.

Co-op split screen on a controller is a niche feature. In fact, co-op in general is pretty niche.

Gakai is more the type of thing I'm talking about, or including a headset in the box to get a better online community. Now a share button can be such a strategy.

Getting an easier platform to develop for is another.

So don't list small niche features, that doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things, but business strategies to get consumers to prefer one platform over another.

Fact is, the general strategy of the PS4 is basically a copy of the Xbox 360. MS is furthering their strategy with TV and all around entertainment for the family instead. Sony might have something major up their sleeve, but they haven't shown it....

Now if you just want to respond by arguing semantics, don't bother. If you have other major featurse like "share button" (that I mentioned) or Gakai to show me that Sony really has a different strategy then please share.

Just because I don't plan on buying one doesn't mean they can't blow me away with a feature that might change my mind and convince me to buy one. If it's not ready, fine.

In before disagree votes and "no u" replies I won't read.
Jek_Porkins  +   1015d ago
I find this hard to believe, mostly because Microsoft's first party studios have probably had dev kits for 3 years by now. There might be a delay or two, but I seriously doubt all of their studios across the board are six months behind, that would be one hell of a coincidence.

If a few are behind, Microsoft will most likely just open their wallet and get some games to fill the gap, which works well for people who'll want the next Xbox, it also shows they still have a focus on games if they are willing to spend big money to get games while some of their studios finish up theirs.

I'll be happy when May 21st rolls around so some of these stories can stop, they are beyond old.

No way all of them. Makes no sense. Could all be just a single studio. Things could just be getting blown out of proportion.

SDF Repellent  +   1015d ago
People are idiots to believe they are 6 months behind. Here are the facts.

-Turn 10 last game was Forza 4 and that is completed sometime in the summer of 2011.

-Rare has 4 teams and the only thing they have worked on for the past couple of years was Kinect sports - so that leaves 3 teams working on X720 projects for a while now.

-Lionhead studio is currently working on a project since Fable 3 (note, Fable Journey is a side-project by the B team)

-Epic games, even though second party, is no doubt developing the next Gears of War Trilogy for the Nextbox since Gears of War 3. Note Gears of War 3 was originally going to be released in April 2011 but was pushed back for a Fall released and Judgement was developed by People Can Fly and not Epic,

-Rememedy, another second party, last major released was of course Alan Wake back in May 2010 and no doubt Alan Wake 2 is in the pipeline, possibly a launch title.

-343 industry of course has been working on Halo 5 since the end of Halo 4 and it is expected that Halo 5 will be launch in Fall 2014.

_Newly formed Black Tusk studio (formerly named Vancouver studio) was established in 2010 and they been working on a new AAA core title for a few years now.

May 21 can't come fast enough to prove the haters wrong.

You sound ridiculous dude. That's like some 4th grade trash talking on the bus about video games nonsense. You should make these companies work for your dollar.

In all honesty, we don't know one way or another. It's possible, though. And if, for some odd reason, most of Microsoft's first party developers were skipping the 360 to work on the 720, it would explain why they've all been silent for so long.

It wont help them.. Paying for exclusive content again will only get them so far.. They better get a move on with their games.. Nintendo was slackin & look what happened to wii u.. Unless they literally pay off pubs for complete exclusivity with games, its not going to slow sony down at all.. I mean what are they gonna do? Buy watchdogs, COD, & BF4? No, no, & no... Maybe some maps or something & thats it

Yep i agree.

Exclusive games > Timed DLC

By the way do you have any troll repellent on you because theres a pest called SDF Repellent thats been plaguing the comments section. It doesnt seem to go away even with the bubble treatment.

I know why MS first party studios are behind is because Microsoft is forcing them to utilize the kinect and probably other bs features.

Nintendo Fan Here.

I just want to say- that if you think a MultiBillion Dollar Company like Microsoft that has 6 Months to right a wrong is not going to do anything to save its Launch...

...well you might be right, stranger things have happened-
I doubt that Microsoft will allow this to happen.

(I expect they may have problems but not in a major way).
KontryBoy706  +   1014d ago
This shows defeat. It makes no sense for them to be behind given they have been pretty much lame for the past 3-4 years with weak exclusive offerings. you'd think they have been spending the time getting ready for next gen... offering at least more than 3 franchises like they did this year. Microsoft only rode on the backs of 3rd party devs for most of this gen... smh.

Could it only be Sony not to suffer a game draught when it launches? Sounds like a Wii u problem and games should be pumping out by next month. Thank fcuk

wiiu didn't have a launch day drought. after that yes but the system launched with 40 games. around 30 retail. and before you say all ports, cod,zombiu,mario,nintendoland, scribblenauts,007,cabelas,sonic racing and more were not ports.
ACEMANWISE  +   1014d ago
Sony and Nintendo were a year behind the 360. Doesn't seem to be a defining problem. Nintendo went to first place and Sony is near tied to 2nd.

It only means the next Xbox may release 6 months later.
yugovega  +   1014d ago
if it does that then it'll release with ports. oh no doomed. /s
