the confirmation came from his twitter that fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us is coming to PlayStation 4 - but not Xbox One.
PezDOY© @PezDOY 48m @noobde when is the release date for the 360 version? WTF is this guy for reals??xD
I can't imagine it not coming to the Xbox One at some point. But this could be one of the first signs that it isn't easy to develop games for the Xbox One or at least port them. I have to imagine that the PS4 version is just the PC port with touchpad functionality. Maybe Sony worked some sort of deal with them, but that doesn't really make a lot of sense. Either way this is just interesting and I do wonder if it is an indicator of things to come.
the real reason is chaching.
No Xbox One version at launch ? That means its a Ps4 timed exclusive.
Sounds daft to me. If its coming out on 360 then it should come out on XB1 since its coming out for PS3, Vita, PS4 and PC. Just an aside: Anyone noticed over the past month the amount of games earmarked for Vita? Its PS3 & Vita or PS4 and Vita or all 3. No surprise to anyone who has a Vita. We need to get the hose pipe 'cause Sony is on Fire at the minute!
PC version = fast PS4 port, X! = not so fast PC port. They're most likely just going to have to wait a little longer. Or they want to see how well X1s sell before spending time on a port. Or MS told them no (unlikely) because they want Killer Instinct to be the focused on fighting game at launch.
dude....it's a port. SMH!
Or just maybe they dont want other fighter competing with killer instincts.
Of course it's a Sony/DC thing. It's the only reason why you get to play as the Joker for Asylum, DC Universe Online is available for PS3 & PS4, and DC Comics distributed Infamous comics.
Actually i m sick of Injustice. Yes it s a good game. But it's enough already. Don't you think it's a time for new Mortal Kombat or another game. So yeah WTF with this man..
The people who disagres with me doesn't want new Mortal Kombat !!!! Are you insane ?
give m 2 v 2 and kratos for the ultimate edition please
and here it starts.. PS4 is definitely the console to own if it already starting like this
Oh yeah thats for sure
Dude, sony pays for that. It might be a timed next gen exclusive.
paying for injustice makes no sense.
While I think your comment has reason to it, by that logic, PS4 fans can assume that Titanfall is a timed exclusive for the XBO. I personally don't care, I'm just making a point. Also, it really doesn't make sense to pay for a fighting game as a timed exclusives.
@Abzine They paid for it, Sony has a partnership with Warner Bros Interactive as a publisher, and Exclusive content to Sony is covered on an IP by IP basis, Batman Ip gets special treatment with DLC and Marketing for PS3 along with a stand alone Vita game, While Madmax gets marketing exclusively for PS3&4. This news of Injustice coming exclusively as a PS4 title further cements that partnership with Warner Bros Interactive publishing... Vita and PS4. And it'll continue with more games as they work with Sony. This partnership deals aren't free, Sony probably helped fund the game's development on PS4 and Vita to solidify that the games release on their platforms.
Like you said , it's Ip by IP basis . Makes no sense paying for it now , with the dust settled on new consoles with a limited audience , from with there will be even fewer prospect for now . If they wanna anything exclusive from Injustice , they've gotten some dlc or something at its original release on ps3 and 360 .
lolz Sony dont bother wasting dollars on timed exclusives..they put their dollars on real exclusives...
that's actually true... I'm a PS fanboy to death! but I'm pretty sure Sony must have paid for this, whether is't a time exclusive or not, it's all because of Sony and has nothing to do with porting the game as an issue.
Paying for timed exclusivity of a port of a last gen game? Any proof?
If this was gtaV I'd completely agree but with it being a game like injustice that's already on 360 it might just be a day one exclusive that will come to x1 down the line now if the same thing happens with gta it's a done deal.
Exclusivity. Heard of that?
I said this for ages. You shouldn't assume XBO will get third party support just because 360 did. MS screwed up on the whole handling of it and when games are getting pre-orders that low would you risk making a game on it? To give you an idea, in August Killzone had more pre-orders then Dead Rising 3, Forza 5, Titan Fall and Ryse combined.
then again part of the reason KZ got more preorders than those other games, is because the game looks really good, like really really good
Yeah this is pretty much like what started happening with the 360 when it first came out. We saw ports of games that just came to the 360 before the PS3 because of how everything on the 360 was setup. Looks like the same situation, only now the PS4 is the console of choice.
Aah damn... who cares about this
I really doubt a current gen title coming to next gen is noteworthy, unless of course you want to play current gen games on next gen consoles
Day 1 purchase for me. Now all Boon has to do is announce a new or remastered Mortal Kombat. Hell yeah!
Definitely noteworthy especially to me bc I kinda missed out on picking this game up. Now I can enjoy it on my ps4 with all the dlc. I'm pretty excited.
I do, now my initial PS4 lineup will be cemplete, a fighter, an FPS, a racing game, and a 3rd person when Infamous comes out
These comments are laughable, only thejigisup's comment makes sense.
Believe it or not people do enjoy fighting games. With the live streaming features on ps4, people are going to get a lot more from this game. The real question is who comments on articles they don't care about???? Get a life dude
Valid reason... followed by immaturity
@destiny You mean valid reason followed by valid reason I dont care about this game in the least i dont really play fighting games much but it fills a hole that the ps4 line up had and thats a good thing. I could bring up another fighting game that the other side seem to be in awe over but i am not here to start a fanboy war.
i'd rather have this with next gen graphics than shit killer instinks.
I'll take this game over KI anyday anytime
You mean you'll pay for it. They are 2 very different offers
You'll still have to pay for Killer Instinct if you want to compair the two. With your argument, you are saying that you are only going to play the free version with only one playable character.
@Infected Unless you are planning to use only Jago, you'll have to give MS some $ too
what exactly do you get for the free version of KI??
off topic, Microsoft offers a "free to play" like KI at launch for those that initially cant afford many games. Sony on the other hand offers Driveclub PS+ edition, PLanetside 2 and others I cant recall at the moment. To me this reflects the perspective, attitude, and vision of the 2 companies.
i always wanted to see this game with next gen graphics hope it looks good.
I rather get KI is new and fresh. injustice is a alright game.
How is Killer Instinct "new and fresh"?? I'm not attacking you, I'm honestly wondering why you think that. Back in the mid 90's when the original came out, it was new and fresh. I'd say now it's just Double Helix trying their best to ride nostalgia.
please nostalgia is a trash company how long we haven't play kI since snes era a long years. i willing to give double h a chance. injustice for ps4 is all hype, play the game on ps3 and it was alright. it was fun at first then got boring with the spam.
Lol, Nostalgia isn't a company!... Lol His usage of Nostalgia meant that Double Helix is trying to ride the affinity gamers had with killer instinct on the SNES. The company that made The Original KI was Rare, and they are also on the project as well. Definition of Nostalgia: a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.
@kratos_TheGoat Dude get your facts straight! Nihilistic made Call of duty declassified...
@Kratos... Again... Nostalgia isn't a company, and his usage of the word went over your head... Completely! As for COD:Declassified that was made by Nihilistic Software, not "Nostalgia" lol.
LOL KI will always be the poor mans MK
Thats pretty much exactly what everyone used to all it lol anyone i knew back in those days with a megadrive (genesis in the US) or a snes would pick MK over KI any day of the week lol now that its exclusive to the xbone the xboners are getting all wet about it, i can bet you if it was on another console they would not care at all about the game, the same as everyone else. I might add tho i am sure there will be a few ppl that get nostalgic over it but the amount of ppl pretending its something special is funny, especially considering they had to remove things from the game to keep it at 60fps tho the game is only 720p
I really don't know of KI will be a good game judging by Double Helix's history. Seriously I'm mad at them for screwing up Silent Hill. Nexus 7 2013
KI is going to be garbage... the DLC edition. The rare that made KI1+2 is LONG dead. Keep dreamin
i was talking about slant six who made socom ps3
Nobody really cares....Its an old game now.
I absolutely agree. Look, I love what Sony has set out to do with the PS4, but the amount of feedback this is getting is ridiculous. Are people really that excited for a current gen game to be re-released on next-gen hardware? Sony fanboys will thumbs up anything that is adding to the PS4 even if it is a remotely small touch to next gen gaming
"Are people really that excited for a current gen game to be re-released on next-gen hardware?" Just wondering if you knew that almost all of the XBox One launch games were suposed to be on the 360?
The only launch title that was supposed to be on 360 was ryse...so try again, besides that doesnt have anything to do with the point. Injustice is an old game, and it sounds like Sony wanted a fighter on their platform at launch so they picked the most recent one, and said hey make it for ps4. If this was the other way around, and coming to Xbox One and not pS4, people would be calling it an idiotic move.
"Sony fanboys will thumbs up anything that is adding to the PS4 even if it is a remotely small touch to next gen gaming" Are you that dense? Any game coming to the PS4 at launch is a GREAT THING. Port or not, it gives PS4 buyers another potential game to buy, especially for those who've never played Injustice on current-gen (like me), or for those who liked the game so much, they'll want to double-dip and play the game with better graphics, framerate, and even netcode. Plus, this is a good game. If it was a horrible current gen game re-releasing on the PS4/Xbone, like say that horrible Ride to Hell: Retribution, THEN I would complain and question why it's coming to next-gen.
False... It wasn't just Ryse, Dead Rising 3 was also really deep in development for both 360 and PS3. MS approached Capcom and had them repurposed the game to launch as an Xbone Exclusive since the franchise started as an Xbox 360 Exclusive, they inked a deal to fund the game and keep the 3rd entry as a game to follow in the the trend they started 7 years ago with the Original DR..
Give us MK 10 instead! ;)
Well that killed it. Dang and I thought there would be an Xbox One version. Nexus 7 2013
Nice! a very excellent fighter.
For you exclusive guys, you have to understand his game is already out for the 360. So no, it's not exclusive to Sony just because it's headed to the PS4. There might be some kind of timed exclusive deal with Sony, as WB always has exclusive deals with Sony, as the Batman games, Injustice and Mortal Kombat games have already shown since exclusive content is released for the Playstation. Maybe people should do a little research on that and see how WB studios always had exclusive content for Sony's brand.
