New third-party deal primed for Gamescom announcement
So FIFA 14 then. A lot of people in Europe like FIFA (big)
I'm guessing more like Killer Instinct. I think there was a rumor saying it would be F2P They also mention this : "This major game, the source said, is the "unique Xbox One exclusive" deal that Microsoft executive Phil Spencer said was being saved for a Gamescom announcement." Not sure if they're saying the game is exclusive or the deal is exclusive, though. Edit: nevermind, KI isn't third-party
Even if its FIFA the average person will still work out that they can buy a PS4 and FIFA for a cheaper price than the Xbox and a free FIFA. I don't see how MS think this is a good plan.
Article says the Ps4 is priced at 499$, 100$ less than Xbox One, wtf? Did someone just smoked a 100$ bill?
KI already was confirmed as free to play. It must be as a new game from MS, can't be FIFA, would be too expensive for MS, think of FIFA as giving COD away for free.
@gaffyh yeah, I think if they reached an agreement to give the game for free, then the game must also benefit from this agreement. So I think it's gonna be a game that has a lot of paid downloadable content or something like that. For instance, a game with DLC that planned on selling 500,000 units normally, would now be given freely to the 4,000,000 X1 launch window owners. And the DLC alone for the user-base that is now 8x larger would make this profitable. (I used random numbers here. I don't really now how many units consoles usually sell at launch)
I don't understand why I would want a PS4 if I want an XB0 with the games and features I desire. I'm looking forward to this news and hopefully MS keeps on impressing after this complete change of character.
Will probably be Dead Rising 3.
well let's see. Among the major third-party launch titles, we have : - BF4 - AC4 - COD - FIFA - Just Dance 2014 - Lego marvel - Watchdogs If we eliminate the mature titles, we are left with FIFA, Just Dance, and Lego Marvel. Personally, I'm betting it's Just Dance since it'll make use of Kinect and it a family-friendly title whose popularity is not limited to European audiences. And it relies heavily on DLC. Perfect candidate right there
It's NOT killer instinct.
Its great ms are giving fifa away fo4 no extra cost, but surely sony can just bundle fifa and then also claim they are giving DC universe online, planetside 2 and warframe away? so Xbox one, fifa and killer instinct = £429.00 + gold Ps4, fifa, dc universe, warframe, planet side and drive club = £389.00 + ps plus? Average mum walks into game and sees fifa on both boxes, but one has more games and a picture of batman and superman on and its cheaper? still, good move by MS.
You're already paying $100 more vs a PS4. Including a game isn't a big deal, regardless of what that game is. The kinect isn't $100, as that was already revealed by MS execs. so if you get a ps4, a game, and the pseye, that covers $500 right there. same as an xb1, kinect, + free game.
It won't be battlefield, COD, assassins creed, Deadrising, watchdog or ryse as they are not playable by all the family so unless they do multiple SKU it cant be any of those.
Killer Instinct is confirmed to be F2P However, you only get one character The rest you have to buy for 5 - 10 dollars each Prices are not confirmed, but there was a leak They responded to this by saying "Well usually, people only fight with 5 characters." Price might change though
@Timesplitter14 "4,000,000 X1 launch window owners" In microsoft's wildest dreams. OT: It looks like it's FIFA14 from reports of stuff seen at EA's booth at Gamescom, but will the free game be a retail copy or a download for live members?
It is customary for consoles to give away games that are equally accepted everywhere. It's cant be FIFA, it can't be Madden Football , that leaves forza. That's what'll make cense but I wish it was COD. That'll be awesome .
they should just include a code which lets you choose which launch title you want to download or walk out of the shop with. that would please more than this is already pleasing me
definitely gonna be killer instinct.
wasn't the free game for the areas of europe they pushed back the release date on?
Maybe it's an unannounced game? If not then I expect it's Just Dance, though that game probably sells too well. It's the only game I ever see people really using the Kinect for.
Desperate times require desperate measures!
We already have two free games. Drive club ps+ edition and what ever amounts to 30 bux in ps store games. Besides day by day the Xbox one is looking more like the GameCube... Only it is prematurely executing its final options.....
It's FIFA. Megaton.
a blight on a burgeoning urban landscape.
You guys are high if you think EA will just give away their highest selling franchise away with every console.
@hammad... depends if MS offered 300 mil that would cover the cost of Fifa sales (last years one) on the 360 and that's assuming a retail price of 50 euro a pop plus add ons of 10/15 euro a game... and EA gets what say 30/35 + the DLC euro out of it? this way they'd get the full price if they offered enough money any company would take it and MS could see it as a justifiable expense seeing as they're (rumored) making $120 a console so if they sold 2.5 mil consoles they'd break even on that particular deal. although i seriously doubt it is Fifa
if they can afford a contract to receive a free copy of fifa for eveyone youd think they would be able to knock a $100 off the launch consoles at least. highly doubt it's fifa probably some dlc riddled game
If this true, doesn't this give credence to where and how Microsoft is spending the 1 billion dollars on games!? And if so what really has changed about Microsoft? Seem to me it's a repeat performance from this generation. It really doesn't matter what game it is! Microsoft has probably dropped some exorbitant cash, but theres still no guarantee the fish are going to take the bait.
25 disagrees. LMAO... Some butthurt people out there.
Midnighter, Chief Exec of the MDF. Why would you defend a crappy Xbox so much?
The Harry, one of the many sheep of SAD.. the Sony Attack Dogs.... Why can't you just admit that I was right? I have 29 disagrees that I called it right.. it was FIFA... and you completely go off topic with your fun hit on me and don't even mention the topic at hand. The pack in game was FIFA... JUST LIKE I SAID. Take your crow and share with the rest of your buddies. :)
You know Midnight, you should just get a bubble just on calling it correctly. Of course on this site that will never happen, even though it was true.
really ?! they said an exclusive that never been shown and hidden tell gamescon , and then comes the smartest guy in industry and said FIFA14 good point idiot good point
Just because they said exclusive, doesn't mean they are referring to the game. Could be the exclusive bundle they were talking about.
