...and where is that support?

Microsoft already pulled several games OFF the Xbox 360 (Dead Rising 3, Ryse, Killer Instinct more than likely) to pad out the Xbox One's launch lineup. And that's what they call "support"? Yeah, count me out.

pedrof931779d ago (Edited 1779d ago )

Indeed. They have announced tones of exclusives to the current gen.

Oh wait thats Sony.

I'm sure they will support it like they have been doing for the last 3 years. I wonder what they are going to to with Kinect 1.0 now.

Microsoft you don't deserve your fanbase. They are blind to follow you.

But I'm sure that georgenoob will find a good side to this story.

darthv721779d ago

You make it sound like providing a platform for those who cant afford to buy a next gen console is a bad thing.

WrAiTh Sp3cTr31779d ago

Hopefully I'll be plugging mine into my XB1 and playing it...with less steps of course. I have a lot of games to catch up on, lol.

HammadTheBeast1779d ago

@Wraith

I'll just plug my PS4 HDMI into the other 4 HDMI ports on my TV, as every TV has more than 1 port.

Easy steps, all I need to do is press a button on my remote.

FITgamer1779d ago

@HammadTheBeast Make sure you do a thorough stretch before you pick up that remote. You wouldn't want to pull a muscle. ;)

Hicken1779d ago

@darth: "Providing a platform?" So just continuing to produce the system, then?

Where the hell are the games? Nothing announced, and one exclusive so far this year. What type of commitment is that?

Honestly, I really hate your comments. You always try to straddle some middle ground, when there's no reason to do so. I assume it's an attempt to keep your bubbles, but it's just resulting in a lot of wishy-washy comments

WrAiTh Sp3cTr31779d ago

Hammad, who cares? This is an Xbox article, lol.

gamer20131779d ago (Edited 1779d ago )

I know that this may be hard for you're fanboy head to fathom but, the 360 has a much larger overall library of games than the PS3 due to being released a full year earlier. So people who own a 360 aren't exactly hurting for games and never have, contrary to the garbage that gets said around here.

darthv721779d ago

@hicken. no offense taken I get allot of people who view my middle ground stance as questionable. but its genuine none the less. I been in this game for so long that its pointless to bicker over things.

when you're young, its easy to do but as you get older you just appreciate the overall things from a more neutral position.

oh and as far as support goes. it is not uncommon for a platform holder to shift focus to their newest project because the report they build with 3rd parties is generally strong enough to keep content flowing. its no surprise that the 3rd parties are the biggest group of devs to maintain support for an outgoing platform.

that has been the norm since even back in the nes to snes days.

It's easier said than done. But I guess they don't know that.

Mr_Pinky1779d ago

Oh like how they supported the original Xbox

Ezz20131779d ago (Edited 1779d ago )

really don't know why you have disagrees
your pic say's it all
http://n4g.com/comments/rel...

sony still offer quality and quantity with ps3 and won't stop any time soon even though ps4 will launch in very few months
they launched TLOU month ago and it's already Game Of The Gen contender for pretty much most sites and gamers and the highest rated game in 2013

MS, where is your exclusives support for xbox360 ?!

AngelicIceDiamond1779d ago (Edited 1779d ago )

@EZ That chart is means absolutely nothing. For the past 2 years Sony outmatched MS in exclusives and guess what the result was.

Big holiday sales every year outdoing itself. You know where all the exclusives games are. If they were all on 360 you would say "where is your exclusives support for xbox One ?!"

Sony has been very impressive the past couple of years with the exclusives and yeah they will deliver years to come (thats's what Sony does). But to knock off MS is plain fanboy talk.

EDIT: BTW you can throw that chart away and quit waving it, all it means Sony released more core games than MS.

Cool, I'm glad, but doesn't mean much.
That's great

Ezz20131779d ago (Edited 1779d ago )

@angelicicediamond

"""That chart is means absolutely nothing. For the past 2 years Sony outmatched MS in exclusives and guess what the result was."""

the result
ps3 passing xbox in worldwide sales even with the year headstart for xbox360
because they keep showing gamers the support with exclusives since 2008

"""Big holiday sales every year outdoing itself. You know where all the exclusives games are. If they were all on 360 you would say "where is your exclusives support for xbox One ?!" """

strange
because sony is still supporting ps3 with exclusives and more to come like beyond and GT6 etc
and will bring exclusives on ps4 like what they always do with their consoles
why MS can't do the same ?!
why should they stop making exclusives on 360 because xboxone is about to come out
why not bring exclusives to both like sony ...they have the money so why not ?!

""" Sony has been very impressive the past couple of years with the exclusives and yeah they will deliver years to come (thats's what Sony does). But to knock off MS is plain fanboy talk. """

i'm not trying to act like a fanboy
but you just admit yourself that sony is showing no stop in supporting ps3 with exclusives even when ps4 is about to launch
that what i call real "Support"
and MS clearly not doing the same
and also since ps3/pc get the same 3rd party games

"""BTW you can throw that chart away and quit waving it, all it means Sony released more core games than MS.
Cool, I'm glad, but doesn't mean much.
That's great """

how it doesn't mean much when you just said yourself that Sony released more core games than MS
isn't that the whole point of "Support" ?!

TheGrimReaper00111779d ago

Funny thing is
Sony's side is gonna have to be edited by the end of the year again
Becaus we still are waiting for :
Beyond : Two Souls
the Puppeteer
Gran Turismo 6
Tales of Xillia
Kingdom Hearts 1.5 HD Remix
Dragon's crown ( not out here yet =( )
Guided Fate Paradox
Ratchet and Clank : into the nexus
Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD
Tales of symphonia chronicles
........
Fuck, there is still alot coming out

NihonNoAkushongema1779d ago

I like how they just threw hardcore gamers to the side and made mostly kinect games.

They call that support?

Salooh1779d ago (Edited 1779d ago )

You just figured/acknowledged the future of X1 :) lol

karl1779d ago

i wonder how long till whats left of its fanbase realize this..

AngelicIceDiamond1779d ago (Edited 1779d ago )

World Of Tanks
New Slim
Still has third part support
Free 2 Play (project Spark)

As usual I'm not sure what your talkin about. Your just making excuses. @Dedicated.

EDIT: yeah I saw the link and? That's hasn't slowed down the 360 so far.

They're not pulling the plug on the 360 just yet for a good while, get over it. No matter the spins, complaints, whines whatever. You all just bashin cuzz its MS.

What I'm wonder is what are PlayStation fans doing in here talking trash talking. You guys act like this is your article.

You people are selfish and are always negative.

NihonNoAkushongema1779d ago

Look at the link he put up. You will see what he is talking about.

Mr_Pinky1779d ago

They are not excuses, it's facts.

I mean he's linked us a picture relating to what he's said and which also backs up his point

pedrof931779d ago

New Slim - You think that this is a good supportive way ?

"Still has third part support" - But it's not up to m$

Tell a exclusive First party that microsoft announced ?

HammadTheBeast1779d ago

New slim? 0 f***s given.

World of Tanks? Pretty much only game to come out this year and it's also on PC and has been for more than half a decade.

Third Party Support? That's not MS and I guarantee this is the last year of TPS coming to Xbox.

Project Spark is also on PC, not sure where you got the 360 release from.

Either way, those excuses are weak.

And when did they say this? 5 years ago, because they sure as hell have a funny way of showing it these past couple of years. Should this be marked as old?

etownone1779d ago

That pic is bullcrap done by a Sony fan boy.

There are a lot more Xbox 360 exclusives of full games and Xbox Live Arcade games.

HammadTheBeast1779d ago

Xbox Live arcade doesn't really count, but sure, list me some amazing games only on Xbox this year.

Mikeyy1778d ago

Feel free to list them?

XboxFun1779d ago

Where is the support...

MGSV
GTA V
Dark Souls II
Lord of Shadows
Ultra Street Fighter 4
Off the top of my head which I am looking forward to. Not to mention a bunch more games coming to the 360.

Oh but a console has no games unless they are specifically exclusive right? I guess you would fit right in with the xbox fanboys of 2006 right?

Remember last time you flew off the handle and posted first for an Xbox article and then had to eat crow later...yea.

davidj881779d ago

The point is XboxFun none of those games (i believe) are made by first party studios owned by MS...therefore they aren't spending the money to develop for 360 and thus not supporting their own console.

If all those outside publishers stopped using 360 as a platform to release games for then where would the new games for the system come from? MS is currently only thinking of the Xbox one which is why they ported games supposed to be on the 360 to the One rather than spend additional money creating more games so that both consoles had exclusives being released.

ABeastNamedTariq1779d ago (Edited 1779d ago )

Oh I'm stupid. I completely misread your comment at first. Disregard me.

dedicatedtogamers1779d ago

"Oh but a console has no games unless they are specifically exclusive right?"

Where did I say that? I said Micrsoft doesnt support the 360. In fact, Microsoft is taking away games from 360 to pad out the Xbox One's launch library. I never once said "Hurr CAPCOM doesn't support the 360" or "hurr Konami and Namco Bandai don't support the 360! Failz!"

I said (and guess what? You can scroll up and read it for yourself)

Microsoft does not support the 360.

Pretty easy to figure out.

kayoss1779d ago (Edited 1779d ago )

Did this guy just list a bunch of multiplatform games? How is Microsoft supporting their console when none of those games belong to their own studio.

Mikeyy1778d ago

@Xboxfun

HUR DUURRR, you just listed a list of 3rd party games, lmao..

Any 360 people here, or just miserable PS fanboys?

HammadTheBeast1779d ago

Ex-360 person. Not miserable at all actually, just got my Dragons Crown. I might make a user review, check it out when it's up.

YNWA961779d ago

Nah, fair enough, but no need for the negative stuff.... Just enjoy the games.... Too many idiots following bad examples on this site....Dragons crown....something about that game hypnotizes me....

SilentNegotiator1779d ago (Edited 1779d ago )

The same support that we saw with Xbox Classic post-360 launch, it seems.

XboxFun1779d ago (Edited 1779d ago )

"You'd fit right it with the "Sony fanboys" from 2006."

My whole comment was in regards to that very same statement above you left for me not to long ago.

Read through the comments under yours that YOU started. Notice how all the Sony trolls are saying "360 has no games", "where are the games", see how YOU derailed what the article was about and turned it into a console war.

But instead of a trolling mark you get rewarded with a "Well Said".

If you want to be counted out then stop going into Xbox related articles and posting such nonsense.

deadie1779d ago

"Nonsense is a communication, via speech, writing, or any other symbolic system, that lacks any coherent meaning." - Wikipedia.

So it can't be nonsense can it?

kenshiro1001778d ago (Edited 1778d ago )

But you say NOTHING about the XBox trolls who do the same exact thing to Sony articles, right?

Only Sony can do wrong, right? Heaven forbid someone criticizes Microsoft. It's perfectly okay to criticize Sony and talk about their financials and how they're sinking...blah, blah, blah but the minute Microsoft is mentioned, people like you go nuts.

Microsoft has done NOTHING to impress gamers, other than buying DLC and bragging about third party games.

That's why I never bought a 360 in the first place.

I hope they do a better job with the XBox One because they're need all the support they can get.

Jaces1779d ago

Yea....so that's why they moved Ryse, DR3, etc over to the bone exclusively and totally forgot about the 360 during the conference.

Nice M$

I've stopped taking ms seriously long time ago.

OlgerO1779d ago

I actually find this an incredible insult to all gamers. they talk a big game but they havent brought much in the last few years. I hate you microsoft

cyberninja1779d ago

Majority of their fan base is so gullible that they believe everything ms says

PrimeGrime1779d ago

I'll believe it when I see it because if actions are any proof of anything what actions I see now are definitely not backing up what you are saying.

fattyuk1779d ago

Well the Xbox has been dead for a few years now when it comes to exclusives games!

What they mean is

"Commited to dishing out gold subscriptions to 360 members for as long as we can "
