Microsoft may have secured the rights to timed exclusive DLC for Call of Duty: Ghosts, but when it comes to Destiny, Activision's other highly anticipated game from developer Bungie, PlayStation will be king.
Sounds like the exclusive stuff for PS4 will eventually come to the Xbox One. That is great news for me because I definitely want to get my hands on Destiny.
I have to admit, I am not a fan of this exclusive content bullcrap. I haven't seen the stats, but I honestly don't think it sways anyone that much into which version they buy. I definitely don't think it sways anyone into which console they buy. It's the true exclusives (not times exclusives) that matter the most.
I personally don't mind exclusive timed content. Each company needs to have some edge over its competition. With next to all 3rd parties making multiplat games there needs to be some distinction when choosing which console to play on. I think timed exclusives does just that. People always want to be the first in line or the first one to a spot or the first one to have that cool new thing. Some gamers will want to be the first to have this content.
I'm with you on this. If the game isn't exclusive, then specific content shouldn't be either. Having said that, this is one of the games I'm most excited about getting for my PS4. I'm in love with the art style and the world is just begging to be explored.
I agree, Every time I see this type of deal I think that they could have put this money on 1st party studios.
I am with you ArchangelMike. I am not a fan either. It gets even worse with retail shop exclusives.
Microsoft has sold at least 1 million more copies of CoD than Sony. Can't say for sure if this is the reason, but if I was Sony/Microsoft I would rather not find out.
Meh.. for both Destiny and COD. Meh.. for all shooters next gen because they're either just launch titles or games that started current-gen then transitioned to next-gen.
I was envious of PS4 owners getting exclusive content for Destiny, but hey now Xbox One gets the same content! So I .will buy Destiny for Xbox One instead, and there are fewer and fewer reasons to keep my PS4 pre-order these days. I'm not interested in indie games as I can play them for $1 on my smartphone.
The sad fact is that just like this generation, unless we eventually get both consoles, we're going to miss out on some great stuff. If you are only going to get one for the time being, you just have to do your research and pick out the one that you think will be the best fit for you.
I like exclusive content sometimes. Diablo I think has playstation items. And I love that!! Would make no sense to have a god of war tattoo on xbox. I like exclusive content that makes sense.
Blame MS, windows money to buy it. stated a future of it
"Sounds like the exclusive stuff for PS4 will eventually come to the Xbox One." Just like TitanFall will come to PS4. :) Just like every single bit of "exclusive DLC" that Microsoft paid for will come to PS4.
You guys beg for TitanFall like you had nothing to play on the PS4. KZ isnt exciting we know and Kanck and Driveclub aint all that but dont forget you still got the multiplats. @below: I think begging on your knees all day long hurts more.
^ It hurts knowing that EA are the publishers, don't it, Lupe? Edit: What's brown all over, multiplayer only, and looks exactly like Call of Duty with mechs? Funny thing is I'm not even gonna buy TitanFall when it comes to PS4. I just like to see you guys lie to yourselves and deny that it will come, when you know it's going to. I'll be knee deep in superior, GOTY-worthy PS4 exclusives by the time TitanFall hits PS4. Maybe I'll check it out @ bargain bin pricing when I'm finished playing my Sony-owned library exclusively on my more powerful than Xbox One PS4.
@Enemy it hurts knowing that the IP is owned by Respawn Entertainment , the development isn't even invested by EA
@Lupe You've been playing shooters on 360 for the past 6 years, kind of sad there's no exclusive shooter coming out right?
Hey guys its alright. I'll let you guys at my place when it comes out so you can try it out. Not gonna let you play the likes of Ryse or Forza 5 though otherwise you guys will never be going back home :) Cheers !
Yet Sony's exclusives seem to generally stay exclusive...Like the Joker maps that 360 never got or the Exclusive Bioshock DLC that 360 never got either. Or Dead Space Extraction with DS2, There was also MOH Frontlines with MOH
@superlupe Just let this go....
SuperLupe + 1h ago Hey guys its alright. I'll let you guys at my place when it comes out so you can try it out. Not gonna let you play the likes of Ryse or Forza 5 though otherwise you guys will never be going back home lol lupe you're acting like those games already get a perfect ten out of ten they might suck its like counting you're chicken oh I'm having five chickens oh no 2 break now I'm only having 4 whaaaaaaaaaaa
SuperLupe You can keep Forza 5 all to yourself. Seriously, enjoy. I wouldn't play it if MS and Turn 10 gave me the game, console and that abomination of a wheel Thrustmaster has designed for the X1. You won't find a bigger Forza fan on N4G than me. Maybe as big a fan but not a bigger fan. Forza 5 doesn't support triple panels, doesn't support existing 360 wheels and the wheel coming out for the X1 by Thrusmaster doesn't have a clutch pedal nor stand alone shifter. Sorry but a hardcore fan such as myself rocks Forza will all assist off, rewind disabled, and clutch and manual shifter engaged while jamming on my 46" micro bezel LED triple panels. So no matter how you, MS or Turn 10 try to hype of Forza 5 it is a step backwards until it has a complete wheel shifter combo and supports triple panels. Maybe by the time Forza 6 hits retail. MS can go kick rocks. Just more proprietary license fees greedy grubbing nonsense from MS. They need to support existing peripherals cause trust me when I tell you I am not in the minority of hardcore Forza fans that feel this way. Just go check Forza's forums. MS's X1 lineup is extremely overblown. Ryse and DR3 are rentals at best. Forza 5 was the only reason I would get the X1 but now that's gone and don't even get me started on Killer Instinct. Looks okay but lacks depth and complexity. Than again my collection of 360 fight sticks wont work on the X1 either. MEH This once hardcore MS fan has jumped ship and swimming to Sony Island.
@Brutally you don't honestly believe this trash you are spewing do you? Have you actually played these titles, have spent time with the developers to see what their vision is? Or are you going off biased media and youtube footage to show your "honest" claims. Stop.
i hate to break it to you but when sony gets exclusive content, 90% of the time it remains exclusive
Hate to break it to you but Sony said themselves its timed. http://www.pushsquare.com/n... "We are partnering with Activision on Destiny. This is a new intellectual property from Bungie, and there’s gonna be stuff that is exclusive to PlayStation for a window of time.” (2nd paragraph) "exclusive to PlayStation for a window of time" - "WINDOW OF TIME" being the key words here. So yes it will all end up the Xbox a couple of months later. @below: dont hate the player man, hate the game ! :)
@ SuperButthurtLupe TitanFall's coming to PS4 with exclusive DLC and better graphics. You gonna be ok when it's announced shortly after you buy it for Xbox One?
Wonder why people disagree with Fact... Bioshock exclusive DLC never on 360 MOH: Frontlines PS3 only 360 never got it Joker challenge maps in Arkham Asylum never on 360 DS Extraction: with Dead Space 2 Never on 360 That Assassins creed DLC I believe stayed exclusive in 2 and 3.... Assassin Creed 3 on PS3 came with Assassins Creed 1 360 got nothing with it.... Ninja Gaiden sigma 2 bonus levels stayed in Sigma 2 they never did a DLC Those are just the ones off the top of my head
How can you have exclusive DLC, that isn't exclusive? Timed DLC is not exclusive, all indications point to the DLC being only on PS4. edit: Apparently the DLC is timed exclusive, which is kinda a contradiction my bad.
"Each company needs to have some edge over its competition." It's weird to me that anyone sees that as an edge. Timed exclusive content is meaningless to me.
Did somebody pay?
No Microsoft did something that pissed off both Activision and Bungie I believe it had something to do with them trying to make it a timed exclusive on One80 or 360 something like that
i dont care about this "timed DLC wars" nonsense that microsoft started last gen. it is the cheapest and laziest way to try to give your console "exclusive content." at least we can trust that sony wont rely as heavily on it and they will provide more quality exclusive games, like they always have
The only safe games and games content these days are first party, anything else is up for grabs.
One of the three games I want to pick up at launch. Im looking forward to some Bungie gaming.
Will they reach they're 10 million sales mark? At first I thought wow that's risky... But then I realized how many platforms they're releasing on. 2.5 million on PS3, 2.5 mil on 360, a couple mil on PS4, a couple mil on X1... They'll be aight.
Can this game be played offline?
No it's online only for all consoles
The future of drm is in mmos.. Or skylanders / disney infinity
I HATE TIMED EXCLUSIVE! Sony, it makes no damn sense. MS just looks stupid doing this crap. Seriously. It makes no Freaking difference. Exclusive content, fine, whatever. But whats with Timed crap? That could go to developing games or your crappy marketing. Love you Sony.
Blame activision, they will never want to miss the chance earning more money.(cod "exclusive dlc " always reached ps3).
Couldn't care less about exclusive DLC but Destiny is more appealing than COD and Titanfall combined. Try something new , you COD zombies
no. Destiny looks like Halo with a boderlands skin.
I will give it too you that it looks more appealing that COD, but in no way does it look more appealing to Titanfall. I think more people are looking foward to Titanfall right now than they are Destiny.
True, but a lot of that has to do with the word of mouth hype surrounding it. People have actually gotten some hands-on time with it and have enjoyed it. Destiny has yet to be played and, therefore, doesn't have to same hype...yet. Not saying that Titanfall doesn't look fun. But, it SHOULD get all of the attention...because it's been played already.
This is good for both sides of the gaming empire people get what they want yay!!! Stop whining please everyone I just can't wait to play the game.
is this game 1080p 60fps?
I heard it is for both next gen-consoles
I'd much rather have 30 days sooner dlc for a mmo then a fps.
Bungie new IP vs CoD Honestly? Fish AI is dope.
Bungie any day of the week man, Im so sick of CoD BUT BF is my shit tho also Cod is for nubz
I have to wonder if MS didn't start all this timed DLC bullshit, would Sony still have done it? It's annoying as all hell. I wish they'd both stop it.
Thank you Microsoft for another stupid trend, at least them superior graphics will remain exclusive.
what's up with all the loyal idiots in this site...damn do they get paid by either sony or microsoft for being dumbass fanboys because if any of you idiots do get paid for being fanboys...tell me where i can sign up :)
I hate this exclusive content direction. The only exclusive content should be first party games. All it does it prevent gamers from having content they otherwise would have had, it only deprives and creates nothing new. MS is the worst at it, they rather spend 50 mill on timed exclusives than build a new IP but Sony is getting just as bad.
It is almost as if it is aimed at children, bragging rights and all that pointless crap. I am starting to boycott games that do this, there are plenty of other games to keep me interested, I don't need to pander to these asshats.
Even is this was a re-statement, how the fuck is this new when it was announced all the way back in Febraury? 380 degrees? N4G has become a joke I swear
