Microsoft has just announced at their Gamescom conference that Tom Clancy’s The Division Xbox One version would contain some exclusive content.
I'll retain my excitement until they say what it actually is
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.
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..
So.. so far it's PS4 with AC and Destiny content, and MS with Division/some EA titles.
^^^ watch dogs too
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.
I agree and it needs to end.
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..
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.
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.
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.
Well said Vman
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.
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.
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.
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.
Umm no.. Maybe a few framerates. Has nothing to do with textures
You say that now, but look at Last of Us. In 2021 Playstation will dominate. Again...
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..
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
"Exclusive Multiplayer map", lol
Hammad... some EA content. 0_0 Battlefield 4 ya twat! Thats all the convincing I need!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
rumored partnerships also include platinum, epic, konami prod,namco and ninja theory
Good win for me i guess im so excited for this game
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.
Hhaha i ain't complaining mate
Both systems lose out but whatever.
@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.
That's Funny you would think sties like Joystiq and IGN would also post a story about this but havent.......makes me question its credibility.
Gamestop live blogged it. So it's definitely true.
just read the Live blog from Gamespot, not gamestop :P, no mention of exclusive content.
now they are posting, it. eh no biggy not going to take away from the main story, still get it for my PS.
hmmm if this trend continues, i may have xbox one as my main system like the 360 was
LOL Micro$haft needed something from them considering that Assassins creed 4 has exclusive content on PS and so does Watch Dogs....So how exactly is 1 out of 3 a trend lol someone is a delusional Xbot
Don't forget Destiny!
actually... Division looks much better than the other two. But I agree with some of these posters that MS could use that money to further enhance 1st part studios and games rather than extra content on 3rd party games. There isn't a lot of value there as far as I'm concerned unless it impact the entire game like cloud powered dedicated servers for COD Ghost for instance.
Lol ms will never understands whats important wbout a game console... and neither will the peoble who buy it
"hmmm if this trend continues, i may have xbox one as my main system like the 360 was" Timed exclusive content is that big a deal to you? Announcements like this from either side mean nothing to me.
I hate this exclusive content BS, it does nothing but hurts all gamers especially seeing how Sony have started doing it too now. Just make all content for every console on multiplatform games, that way every gamer wins.
yeah i agree but it's a fierce competition
Looks like M$ have pulled out their Chubby.........Wallet!
Like Sony did for AC4 and the other titles ;-)
It's just each company having a pop at each other and normally Microsoft wins these timed exclusives because they have deeper pockets I can remember when they did it with gta4 they paid $50m for that.
Exclusive new ip > exclusive dlc
lol you mad.
Yeah he's mad over exclusive content for a multiplat third party game. Please get over yourself.
Why be mad? Who the hell would anyone be mad when they get new whole games instead of a few skins/maps? Shouldn't you be mad, cuz you're getting crap like this and 30 days of Peggle 2, instead of a whole new freaking game?
Lmao at me being flagged for trolling... So "money talk" is considered trolling? Tell me when does money not talk in life.
