I'll retain my excitement until they say what it actually is

slimeybrainboy1072d ago

These things are never interesting. I never even finsihed the AC exclusive hours they were lame. The only do this to try and make you choose to buy it on one conosole over another, there pretty much always just guff.

SolidStoner1072d ago

MS exclusive content works for a limited time mostly..

and If they really get some exclusive stuff, it mostly sucks... who would want to release something good on a failed, people rejected platform..

HammadTheBeast1072d ago

So.. so far it's PS4 with AC and Destiny content, and MS with Division/some EA titles.

Makes a big difference with COD. I think it makes more sennse on these types of games. Me and many of our clan members are excited for this one. We will run through it quick so any add ons they throw at us will be much appreciated.

@torchic

So if I have an X1 and I have the division. I am a fool for buying the extra content it has? That is flawed thinking brother.

Opposite platforms need to start a petition. Thats how you get it done.

Don't like exclusive deals - on either side. It is lazy and disrespectful to the fans who buy your game on another platform.

It is great for game developers who need the cash.

torchic1072d ago

I agree and it needs to end.

vigilante_man1072d ago

It will only end when gamers refuse to buy a game because developers chose exclusivity to another console.

Only when we stick together can we change things. Look at DRM..

torchic1072d ago

I wish it were that easy

many of the less hardcore gamers who don't visit forums are the ones who are somewhat fooled by these schemes and so it will never end.

I just really, really want this shit to end.

Underworld1072d ago

I don't really have a problem with it. If Sony, Microsoft or Nintendo want to try and secure their fans extra content for third party games, what's wrong with that? And I think it helps sway some people to their console. Especially if a lot of games have exclusive content on that system. I'm interested to see the exclusive content in Assassin's Creed on PS4 with Aveline.

niaboc1072d ago

You guys are only complaining because sony didnt get the exclusive sh*t. You didnt care when they got watchdogs, destiny, and ac 4 content. People like you guys make me sick. When ms does it, its blasphemy.

Death1072d ago

Look at DRM? DRM still exists, we simply lost the ability to rip our gsmes to the HDD so we can access them anytime and from anywhere. No ripping, no access, no need for the data rights management needed to make this possible.

Thanks.

pixelsword1072d ago

Exclusive DLC only works for me if I think the game is actually worth playing. Getting Darth Vader or Yoda in Soul Caliber would have been great...

...if I actually cared about the game, for example.

All because these games are getting exclusive DLC and they look great now doesn't mean that any of these games are worth playing in the long run.

spicelicka1072d ago

I rarely buy DLC anyway. I think it's a bunch of bullshit for most games. Worse is paying real money for armor, skins, and cosmetic crapp, whoever exploits that and whoever supports that are both pathetic.

Exclusive content that customers will have to pay for. Also Exclusive Lower Res textures exclusive to the platform.

PFFT1072d ago (Edited 1072d ago )

LMFAO!!!!!!!!! Not really but keep dreaming all you want. BUT make sure not too mistake reality for your wishful dream like thinking cause the reality of things will be much more different and you will be in for a rude awakening. In other words the reality of things to you will be like a kick to the nuts.

niaboc1072d ago

Umm no.. Maybe a few framerates. Has nothing to do with textures

Death1072d ago

@PFFT,

You say that now, but look at Last of Us. In 2021 Playstation will dominate. Again...

Salooh1072d ago

I even hate the concept of DLC , they used it in the wrong way. I wish if they remove it but i guess that won't happen..

Godz Kastro1072d ago

This I agree with, its much more sensible. Some DLC is decent like Borderlands 2 but other stuff seems like it shouldve been put in game.

blackmanone1072d ago

A shed a tear when Expansion Pack turned into DLC. Since then we've had a flood of pointless add-ons all designed for a quick buck...and very few true expansion packs.

spicelicka1072d ago

Exactly. What happened to those days where even if there was DLC, it was made free after 8-12 months. I boggles me how 6 year old games still have full price DLC, when barely anyone plays them and you can buy the actual games cheaper used then the DLC.

It seems counterproductive to further detract gamers in an already low populated game, rather than attracting more players with free DLC.

TheLyonKing1072d ago

Kyle Bosman shows a video laughing at the word exuding content, I agree with him cause that content could be anything from a weapon to a map to just another player skin.

MysticStrummer1072d ago

I've never understood the appeal of announcements like this, from either side. The same goes for the exclusive Destiny content for PS4. We all know it will show up on the other console sooner or later.

StoutBEER1072d ago

I like how you're comment got barely any likes. Why? Because people want you to talk up one console and downplay the other. Come on on man, give the idiot... uhhh errr uhhh people what they want!

Mounce1072d ago

"Exclusive Multiplayer map", lol

StoutBEER1072d ago

Hammad... some EA content. 0_0 Battlefield 4 ya twat! Thats all the convincing I need!

xtremeimport1072d ago

They're really gunning for the whole "exclusive content" thing this gen.

I dont really love the idea of exclusive content that effects the actual game experience, because if you own a Ps4(in this instance) you will lose out on a experience. In launch titles I get it a bit more cause it can sway the buyers, but once the cycle has started it kinda sucks.

Consoldtobots1072d ago (Edited 1072d ago )

exclusive content/dlc/pink ponies

have done nothing to make ANY title significantly better than it's rival platform counterpart this generation so I for one couldn't care less about MSs nyah nyah neener neener exclusivity deals.

Pope_Kaz_Hirai_II1072d ago

Its probably a mission or something not bothered.

I was a bit surprised by this as Ubisoft is usually Sonys area of exclusive deals, While Microsoft has other Publishers(Activision, Bethesda) for their exclusives deals. With a new gen looks like all the cards on the table do get shuffled.

slimeybrainboy1072d ago

I wish both Sony and MS would just focus on making their own great excluives rather than getting into deals with thrid parties.

BOTH Sony and Microsoft are guilty of this. With MS the DLC thing is really petty, and with Sony getting one hour of exclusive gameplay is anticonsumer. I want them to invest in one more hour of The Last of Us, not some third party game that don't give a crap about giving good exclusive content.

KrisButtar1072d ago

I agree, I would much rather an exclusive game then just a bit added to a game. 3rd parties get enough money from sales, they shouldn't have Microsoft or Sony paying them as well

ZodTheRipper1072d ago

Tell that Microsoft, they started it with GTA4, CoD and Skyrim if I remember correctly. Instead of investing money into game development they rather invest into this kind of stuff.

NateCole1072d ago

Yeah that has been my biggest problem with MS this gen. The money they spend on these deals could have gone to buy new and upcomming devs to create new and exclusive and exciting content for gamers.

It will result in
1. New and better exclusives that takes advantage of their hardware.
2. Grow the gaming business.
3. New franchises that pushes competition and provide variety.

These deals not only screws other gamers on other platforms but also gives established publishers more leverage/power.

Even on their platform i am sure most xbox fans would rather get new exclusive games than getting some stupid time exclusive deals, DLC.

The same goes with Sony when they pull this crap. I rather they give the money to NS to create a new IP instead of paying off say Rockstar for a couple of GTA DLC's.

Death1072d ago

Buying developers doesn't translate into more profits. Look at all the developers that are shut down in both camps. Kicking a few bucks at a third party with a high profile IP is a great marketing move to gain exposure for the platform. I'm not a fan of the practice, but from a business perspective it's a good investment of marketing dollars.

MS has exclusive content from EA, UbiSoft, Activision so far. Bethesda, as you said, will most likely join them.

KrisButtar1072d ago

Its early in the morning here but shivers went down my spine as when I was thinking "exclusive content" and all it could mean for XB1 is added Kinect functions. Then all the publishers should have exclusive content since its packaged with the system.

I think this gen though that the 3rd parties are just going to bounce between each of their game releases to get coin from both Sony and Microsoft as that would be a win-win in their eyes.

christocolus1072d ago

rumored partnerships also include platinum, epic, konami prod,namco and ninja theory

B-radical1072d ago

Good win for me i guess im so excited for this game

devwan1072d ago

It's only a win for you if you work for Microsoft.

As a consumer, paid for exclusive or timed content is not something to rejoice over, for any game, for any system. What the company paying is doing is offering money to withhold game content from other platforms 99% of the time, not pay for its creation as exclusive.

The only time this practise a good thing is when a platform holder throws money at a dev who would otherwise not have created the game in the first place, then it's entirely positive.

B-radical1072d ago

Hhaha i ain't complaining mate

HolyDuck1072d ago (Edited 1072d ago )

Both systems lose out but whatever.

HolyDuck1072d ago (Edited 1072d ago )

@DeadPoolio, actually, finished my fourth year of college passing all my exams & standard tests.

I'm a fully qualified Electrician, and at the moment I work with a company installing Security systems.

I don't see why you have to get all defensive like you're too poor to own either console, get a grip, I wasn't boasting, just stating things, don't take it too personal. Such a child.
