Series creator, Katsuhiro Harada, tells fans to "ask Microsoft" about a 360 version of the newly announced free-to-play Tekken Revolution.
great answer from Harada san. Microsoft are shooting themselves in the foot!
Not surprising really. It seems like Microsoft expect AAA games to carry their systems forever. They claim to want to compete in other areas of games yet their online policies for indies and companies adopting free to play games is angering developers.
Xbox is for shoota. Joke
From what I've seen, ms don't really like to do free. From map packs to ugc, there's been instances where ms has turned down the chance to gift their customers.
what saddens me is that Microsoft owes a lot to their fans. I know friends who are very happy with their 360 console and have been supporting it for a long time, but see how microsoft treats them back? Lies.
PS3 versions sometimes sell twice as much. Oh and Microsoft doesn't like free stuff, I guess.
Sales... maybe... but ShinMaster, as far as the FGC is concerned. That is not true. The one console that you wanted to play fighting games on this gen unfortunately was the Xbox 360. That is, if you are playing the fighting games worth playing, and by worth, I mean the ones with the biggest cash prizes for 1st place. Marvel3 can't even run at a steady pace on PS3 and SF4 on PS3 has 1 extra frame of input delay. How fitting that the only real exception to this is Tekken. Tekken naturally runs better on the PS3.
The FACT is, more people are playing SSFIV, Tekken, BlazBlue, UMvC3, etc on PlayStation platforms than Xbox. No question about it. That was my point. You got off-topic.
yes and PS3 controller is much better for fighting games.
Microsoft can't accept their customers actually enjoying something for free.
The frame delay issue is well known on SF4 and a reason why some pros when playing the game online do it on xbox instead and indeed ps3 Marvel does lag , but in rather specific occurrences . It still doesnt change the fact that the communities are mostly on ps3 , the big tourneys were still mostly held on ps3 and well those games are pretty much the only two ones with such issues . SFTX was better on ps3 , along with every other fighting games franchise that ran better or equal .
Basically, it bombed on the 360 because DoA is the 360's choice, from what I understand.
But dead or Alive 5 sold better on ps3 and TTT2 360 sold more than DOA5 on 360 . The market just isnt usually as big on 360 for fighting games than on PS3 . Almost all fighting games sell better on ps3 in comparison
i want our tekken back exclusively to us, playstation fans.
lol if anyone thinks Microsoft executives sit around all day wondering how they can repay their loyal customers, you're one seriously optimistic idealist. Microsoft executives sit around all day wondering one thing - how can I get a bigger bonus this year? You don't grow revenue and profits by giving things away for free. You just don't. They know damn well they have their fans by the balls, and Msoft fans are as rabid as it gets, and will choke down whatever it is Microsoft shoves in their face.
Moneysucker-MS never liked free stuff, that's why.
Yeah... then where is the PC version or the Wii U version... BS answer
@ Cueil The guy asked about 360 didnt he? So dont get mad! Greatness awaits 4>1
MS didn't allow him because they are still looking the word "FREE" at the dictionary!
I heard that if you stand in front of a mirror at night and say "Free" five times, Steve Ballmer appears! "Nothing's for FREE!! RAghhh!!!" And he steals your soul! Go on, I dare any of you to say it. I triple-dog dare you! <.< >.> -.-,
This guy looks like a lame fatter version of Adam Jensen
he looks like a ESE-holmes-vatoloco straight from LA.
I like his comment here: https://twitter.com/Harada_...
Given how stupidly restrictive the One will be. I definitely don't see many F2P games on it. Are any of the F2P games announced for the PS4 coming to the Xbox One?
@sonic not that i know of, there pc and ps4 warframe,dc universe,planetside2, war machine. maybe this tekken game? idk i assure you there will be more.
Everquest 2. Wouldn't Guild Wars 2 (you have to buy the game but the sub is free) on PS4 be great?
Looks like PS4 is gonna rule the console F2P market. lol
Wait wait wait... I have seen rumors about Everquest Next maybe coming for PS4, where did you get Everquest 2 is coming to any console? If indeed true, that great news considering we have no idea if Everquest Next is going to still release this year. A 2013 release for EverQuest Next was implied in January by John Smedley but back at PAX they said their future plans for EverQuest franchise will only be fully revealed in August 1, a unusually narrow window for reveal and release.
There will be f2p play games on the x1but none has been announced yet. It was already confirmed by MS that they will start providing f2p games. You can Google or Bing it
Haha "Bing it?" No.
they are not really free to play when you have to pay for live service lol
>bing it What an obvious shill, joined before the reveal as well, how convenient
How can you have F2P games on the Xbox when you have to pay to play on Xbox live?
@Qrphe just because I use different engines doesn't mean I'm a shill. I've been becoming coming to this site for years. Obviously you're the ultimate shill you like to spread negatives. I lost my password to my original and opened this account months ago back in April I believe so yea get off these nuts hoe
hello Mr microsoft pr
LMAO Bing, that's the first time anyone here actually heard someone say "Bing it" without it being a joke. You could literally talk to a 1000 people all telling you do an internet search and never hear that, about as ridiculous as suggesting ask jeeves lol.
PS4 F2P games - PlanetSide 2, DC Universe Online, War Thunder: Ground Forces, Blacklight: Retribution, Warframe hmm Xbox One F2P Games - Zero!
Well they do have this pay to win Happy Wars on xblive currently.
True, Microsoft does have Happy Wars and is free to play on Live. But it's not free if you have to Pay for the right to play it beforehand (xbox live gold) It's in the same vein that Playstation Plus "free" games are actually game rentals you keep for as long as you subscribe to plus. So if Happy Wars was TRULY F2P, it would be like Sony's F2P MMO games, as in not having to pay a cover charge to play them.
lodossrage You need to calm down, bud. He clearly made a joke, calling it "pay to win." Defense force doesn't need to be in full-swing all the time, you know-- casualties ensue, like poor Hammad.
What the hell are you talking about with "calm down" nonsense? Nobody is even mad. All I was doing is explaining a point. No "defense force" BS necessary. You'd be better off telling me to "calm down" for this comment I'm replying to you with
I have played 4 of those games already and stopped for a reason. I have 8 free games on my Xbox right now, two of which I got this year... Just sayin.
DC universe and Planetside 2 are developed by SOE sony online entertainment so I highly doubt they would be announced on any xbox console and the rest of the F2P nothing were announced about the xbox version
Short answer... No. Not even Planetside 2.
http://www.joystiq.com/2013... They have also tested it on the Xbox 360 but for only XBLA games http://www.geek.com/games/m... Perhaps he wanted Silver Live members to have access and MS said no?
Keep in mind that there is a free version of DOA 5 Ultimate coming out for free on the PS3 exclusively as well: http://electronictheatre.co...
actually they just announce F2P game called Blacklight Retribution for the PS4 exclusively. Some kind of shooter I believe.
Coz sony can provide free stuff
Am glad Sony is Doing everything possible to bring us as many games as they can to the playstation family.
because the playstation is about gaming not an expensive unwanted DVR
Tekken belongs with Playstation
F2P games = low quality or a catch that will involve paying to complete. Not interested in this.
Like League of Legends, Dota2, Shootmania, Planetside 2, and many others which are currently featured in all kind of tournaments with thousand of dollars in winnings? Cmon.
Xbox One = low quality or a catch that will involve paying to complete. Not interested in this. Fixed it for you
Don't worry about Thomper. He joined 8hrs ago and despite "owning both systems" and being "all about the games", has not only praised Microsoft in every one of his 22 posts, but managed to get jabs in at Sony most of the time. Does that sound like somebody who thinks "I'm into games, not brand loyalty"-quote, or are alarm bells ringing for you too?
No one is asking if you are interested , fact of the matter is , even if you were interested , you wouldnt access it without a ps3 then . Now that being said , i'm not a big fan of f2p games , but it's too convenient for fanboys to suddenly say "meh i didnt like them anyway" . It's a sulky and sore loser's attitude
Tekken and DoA 5 (who also got F2P) are NOT low quality games. And this will give Tekken and DoA 5 a good promotion for people who never play fighting games or unsure to buy the full game. They can play the F2P ver and if they like it, they can buy the full game. But if they don't like it, they still can play it for free, maybe buy some characters, and someday they decided to buy the full game. It's a win-win solution, right? :)
I've been playing Tera Online and Path of Exile... both completely free games and better than most games I paid $60.
ahhhh just like the good ol days.. ps exclusive.
This man needs to grow up for once ...
Never ever insult a man who praises playstation on N4G.
Yes, never insult smart people
More like "never go full retard." (referring to Arietos)
Also it helps that the Playstation launched the title as a popular fighter. And the fact Sony is giving game developers the rom they want and need with their games.
Nice move by SONY for going F2P. They knew XBOX LIVE can't never be free. So by doing this, makes SONY a much better secure position to wins the hearts of many people.
can't never be free = can be free!
That's something i've been wondering myself, wile sony is taking on F2P games like crazy, MS seems to be shooting down the idea. A couple years ago i would have said "F2P games suck anyways, so it's not like it's going to be a selling point" but after experiencing DCUO, Planteside 2, Warframe, and being able to get U3 aand KZ3 MP free. I can't say that anymore. These games have proven they can be a main attraction IMO, and one hell of a selling point for anyone who can't get many games after buying the PS4, and if MS doesn't change their stubborn greed centric ways, they are going to feel the hot shit when it hits the fan, and MS has never been the kind to change their ways for the consumers sake, so i hope they got goggles cause it's coming
Thank you based Harada-san.
FREE is not in Microsoft's vocabulary.
