Gamescom award winning The Elder Scrolls Online is set to come out next year on PS4, Xbox One, PC and Mac, but if it wasn’t for the efforts of Sony’s third party relations team, it would have been a PC/Mac exclusive. - PSLS
Good job Sony!
sony got this on consoles sony forced MS to take back their bad policies sony stands for gamers and what gamers want
Would be great if Sony works a deal where, if you have PS+, you don't have to pay a monthly fee
You're welcome, Xbox gamers.
It's funny people are actually getting disagrees for saying kudos Sony. Bethesda admits that Sony convinced them to bring their MMO to consoles. Way to go Sony, shocked Bethesda actually listened to them. I just wish it was a F2P MMO like DCUO. Let me buy the expansions and additional content, but like the article said at least I have an option now.
are people that big of fanboys that they disagree when sony helps them???? grow up
and the stupid part is that a lot of people keep supporting MS , they should thanks Sony and buy PS4 instead of Xcrap
Do console gamers really want Elder scrolls? I mean considering all the issues on consoles with Skyrim, I don't know why they would bother.
I agree with everything except ''Sony forced MS to take back their bad policies'', i'm pretty sure it was angry fans.
Twinspectre, very mature, I will have both play all the great games, you limit yourself....
They all want our money. However I personally feel that Sony is utilizing the "You catch more flies with honey" strategy. Which I feel is more respectful *to the people who pay the bills, I.e. us. *typographical error
This is kind of like Microsoft did with dead rising. If it wasn't for Microsoft there wouldn't have been a dead rising 3.
"sony stands for gamers and what gamers want" And gamers don't want Elder Scrolls '14.99 a month' Online
Except with the ps3 where they nerfed the console for DRM reasons what ever happened to the OS install for ps3 yeah they took it away.
Calm down everyone, there is a rumour going around that Bethesda is having problems with Microsoft AND Sony about double subscriptions for this game. Sony may have convinced Bethesda to bring the game to consoles, but they may also be trying to get it behind the PS+ paywall. Mind you, it's just a rumour at this point, at least where Sony is concerned. Pete Hines confirmed that it's a problem they're facing with Microsoft in an OXM article, but only a spokesperson for Bethesda (not Pete Hines, who is VP of PR and Marketing) said they were facing a similar situation with Sony. **EDIT** "Except with the ps3 where they nerfed the console for DRM reasons what ever happened to the OS install for ps3 yeah they took it away." Yes, because removing a security risk is the same thing as nerfing a console for DRM reasons. It had nothing to do with a hacker admitting to cracking Sony's security and willing to release the information on how to do so to the entire internet. No, it was for DRM. GTFOH with that FUD.
This is how you get third party support and ultimately games on your platform by reaching out to developers and working out some sort of deal. ;)
The only issue I can see is it could hurt their working relationship if the console version fails to make a profit, but other than that, great news.
Now every time Xbox gamers are playing Elder Scrolls Online, they'll have Sony in mind.
Alright, that's a bit of an overstatement, mate. Just a bit; a smidgen; a dash, even.
Well said. Just got my sony pulse headphones...man sony always amaze me!
Now about the monthly fee
lol really though, that's the one [big] thing that could make it all null and void. Most console-only gamers just aren't into that type of game model.
Yeah how dare they wanna give gamers the full game and ensure regular server repairs. Sub > p2w (f2p) anyday of the week.
@Summons75- Guild Wars 2 says hello. They do all of that and more without charging monthly. But lets not kid ourselves. TESO will end up free to play eventually as well.
i think that you dont need the ps+ subscription to play it because of the monthly fee but xbox are not going back with XBLG you must have xblg to play it and yu must play a monthly fee on the xbox their is a monthly fee on the ps4 but you dont need ps+ unike xbox
It's the POWA of persuasion
Which is more powerful than the imaginary power of the cloud.
Yup, the powa of persuasion has been strong with the Sony fangirls!
you know these xbox fanboys should bow down and thank Sony this generation cuz if its wasn't for Sony they would have a 50" dildo up there @ss from microsoft DRM no used games always online if sony didnt stood up they all would be Microsoft little B$tches
50" dildo? Don't knock it 'till you've tried it. (limps slowly away in the opposite direction)
@nosferatuzodd Its comments like yours that make me feel sad for everyone who buys a ps4, bc they will mistake the people that can form real logical thoughts with people like you
nosferatuzodd Its comments like yours that make me feel sad for everyone who buys a ps4, bc they will mistake the people that can form real logical thoughts with people like you do you I'm not stopping you from doing you i was in japan and i saw a lot of American people acting while i don't hear anyone stereo typing them but here you come, on you're high horse trying to be elegant get a grip man
And now we don't want this game. You have to pay a subscription fee and there is a cash shop.
This isn't the same as the Dead Rising situation. Dead Rising sucks. How did they manage to f&&k up a zombie game? Zombies are impossible to get wrong. Everybody loves zombies. Dead Rising has the worst shooting mechanics, story, and mission structure I've ever played. Not to mention it lacks originality.
Uhh Fantasma... Really?! http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... Easily. And Dead Rising is fun. Not much replay value, but the same could be said for Indie titles. Minecraft withstanding.
Actually that would have been fine for me. I was REALLY looking forward to this then it came out it will have a 14/ 15 dollar a month fee. I already pay 60 dollars a month for XBL, don't think i can afford this. Unless the reviews for this are amazing like a can't miss for Elder Scroll fans. I'll probably skip i'm sorry to say.
You pay 60 dollars a month for xbl? Then MS is worse than i thought :p
@StoutBEER: There have been plenty of deals for $30-40 XBL Gold subscriptions. I just bought two years worth a month ago at newegg for $70. I personally don't see myself spending $15/month for a game, but who knows, if StarCraft MMO did, I would probably be all over it especially if that is all I played. That is far less than I spend on games annually.
Ya great now we get a game that charges $15/month. No ty, pass.
That and there wasn't a multimillion dollar deal done too either. Magic.
Not really, console mmos tend to do poorly. Hell just look at DC universe. Sony kills any mmo it touches, or did all you fanboys forget about when Sony thought it was a good idea to revamp Star Wars Galaxies to compete with WoW and completely ruined the game.
Yes Sony for gamers
I'm guessing Skyrim is the only Bethesda game PS3 fans here have a problem with then, cause Bethesda seems to get a lot of hate here. Didn't expect people to be excited for a PlayStation release.
I loved Skyrim on PS3, I know it had issues, but it's still one of my favourite games this gen. But then I was gaming in the late seventies, early eighties, when ALL games were buggy as hell and people just got on with it.
Didn't even know this was coming to consoles haha....god I gotta keep up. Good play sony
Sony always looking out for the gamers.
Lol come on guys! They are looking out for their pockets, it's business. You really think if there wasn't any money to be made they'd have bothered? Charging me a fee for inserting the disc into my console?? I think you should return your Xbox, GameStop ripped you off Heavy
They can make money while making the customer happy, or they can go the M$ way and charge you a fee even for inserting the disk into the console
Obviously it's business. But like I've said before, there's different ways to do business. There's out-of-touch, let's see how far we can get away with business, and there's consumer option business. Sony bringing this to consoles earns them a +1. It provides an option for gamers, I'm not sure why you're not ok with it.
Haha, its interesting the different outlook on this site when it comes to MS and Sony. If MS did this all you would hear is that they paid them off somehow and being greedy, and thats all they can do. When Sony does it they are looking out for gamers and it doesn't have anything to do with profit (bc profit is a dirty word). I can promise you the first thought processes wasn't "Lets see what we can do for gamers", it was "Will this make us a profit". Open your eyes guys and gals.
Good job, Sony. Still not buying it tho.
.............. uh huh. If they were the "MAIN" reason, why not make it exclusive to the ps4? I'm sure there were other reasons that factored into the process of bringing it to the consoles. This was one of many. Good job Sony?
I don't believe this for one minute. Especially since this is coming to all consoles.
Not everything has to be tied down to a financial deal. Getting it off PC and on to consoles is stiff big in itself as there is another reason to get more people buying a console (and there isn't a lot of them so high chance it being their console). Remember these console manufacturers want these PC games to come to consoles. If Bethesda refused an exclusive deal, Sony had to settle with it being on all platforms (which is still better, for them, than just on PC)
Don't waste your time feeding that troll.
I refuse to believe that Bethesda never had plans to bring this to consoles especially considering how successful their franchises have been on consoles.
Not to mention with both consoles now having closer than ever PC like architecture and ease of development.
If Sony did ask them it's only because they probably weren't aware that it was coming anyways.
Such insightful and poetic bile flows through your fingertips and on to your keyboard. Lord forbid anyone have just a slightly different perspective or take on a situation than yours. Instant name calling and hate. Reminds me of so many on this site.
Such intelligence and tolerance from sony fanboys.
@Xboxnotfun Funny, you say I talk bull, yet you come to a Sony article to say that Sony lies. I will tell you what I tell every Xbox fan,I may be a Sony fanboy, but at least I talk facts,I have yet to find an Xbox fan who talks facts to my comments, you people use the logic "I think Xbox is better, therefore everything Xbox wins" Prove me wrong and tell, in a coherent message, why you think this guy is lying... oh wait, you already used your 2 bubbles
@xHeavyx Ummmm, didn't he just do that in his previous post? There are way too many idiotic fanboy posts on each side to go up in arms about one that is just expressing a coherent opinion
Of course you dont believe it because you probably think like MS does and if you cant have it all to yourself you dont want it. A thief thinks everyone is a thief son in turn a greedy man thinks everyone is greedy. But as Jack Trenton once said a rising tide lifts all boats, meaning iamsuperman is right, just getting it on console benefits all gamers, which yknow, is who Sony are all about.
Maybe MS review the trend on N4g console gamers and they found that people are already complaining about $5/month for xlive or psn+ multiplayer, do you really think those same gamers (which are the majority on this site) would fork out $15/month to play it? @bath, let me ask you this: it is true that when Sony buy exclusive from 3rd partyy or indie games, they stay exclusive right ( cause that what Sony fan always boast about)? doesn't that mean that Sony restricted other from getting the contents unless they buy Sony console? so according to you, Sony doesn't want it all for themselves even though that isnt the case? On the other hand, Sony fan always say MS exclusive are just time exclusive (titanfall, NG, ME, and indie games), beta tester or also available on other medium like a PC for example; it is true in most case it is not? So if MS allow you to access their contents (even their blockbuster games like halo, gears or fable)without buying their console, or they allow developers to also bring those same contents to others (some at a later date), how can u say MS wanted all for themselves or nothing? Remember MS have much more money than Sony, and they could keep contents exclusive much easier than Sony, but why they didnt while Sony buying up IPs' right left and right?
Oh I'm sure they had to twist bethesdas arm considering how poorly the title is polling.
Does it even matter? I doubt many players will pick this up for consoles and because the servers are segregated (PC/PS4/Xbox all play by themselves) I can see the console population being pretty vacant. If you're really hyped about MMO's PC is the where you want to play them - unless they unify all platforms to play on the same servers.
Gratz Sony :) But to Bethesda... I'm not paying THAT MUCH for online, Its the same reason why I quit WoW!
I agree. I like Sony more than your kids too. ;)
@dirt And this is the start of a brainwasheing cult. When u pick a company (or cause, religion, w/e) over your own family. Very sad.
Cos he was totaly serious right? Given the choice over buying food for his kids or buying Killzone, you know his kids are going hungry til next payday.
Finally a Sony decision I can get behind!
