Project Spark will not require an Xbox Live Gold subscription, according to a post by the game's community manager Mike Lescault on the Xbox One Reddit forum.
well that's something not behind a paywall! still ytou need gold to share...always a catch.
Give it a few days and MS will come out and say it was a mistake or the guy was confused as to what the question was and that the game will require gold lol.
I really don't care if it requires gold or not. I will have gold anyway.
First comment is a typical sonyfanboy. Project Spark is a awesome game/game creation tool it offers a significant user friendly suite of tools that will keep xbox and pc gamers and potential new game devs engaged for years to come AND ITS BEEN WELL KNOWN ITS FREE for awhile, NOW GREEDY MICRO IS ALSO MAKING IT AVAILABLE WITHOUT GOLD. Instead of giving credit where credit is due the haters just talk trash= jealousy because this isnt some old game or budget indie game, this is actually Microsoft giving a brand new IP which honestly is a really valuable intuitive game/tool available to their fans for free.
man im no fanboy. i was just stating a opinion. free is free if project spark was on ps4 i would have said the same; to share you need online and that goes for both consoles...smh you da fanboy...always thinking like a fanboy. i never said projet spark sukks i (hinted) paywall sukks which it does...but by no means did i judge the game.
He says that it doesn't need gold to play it. Maybe because you can play it offline ? Or simply because the game its totally free.
The first domino falls
@Kingthrash360 this is a good news, don't try to turn it over to a bad news. not being behind the paywall is actually great!
thats what i said u see the exclemation point right? meaning finally something FREE ...man, im not mad..many trolls have made positive statements look sarcastic so i understand the confusion. i one of thos "wtf is a console war?" type of guys. i play games thats it.
Lol, reading the comments on there, shows that redditers don't even read. They ask the same damn questions even after the guy said its free without gold. smh
Not surprising. I bet 10% of the N4G comments come from people who actually read what they're posting on.
No you should learn to discern what you read better. Note how the questions and answers are not on the same day? The answers may have come above the questions, but make no mistake, the questions came first.
Well that's a start...MS you really need to continue this
The only xbox one game I didn't like the look of but I will give it a try.
Dafuq? Its arguably the most innovative and groundbreaking title on Xbox One so far. How could you not like a game that lets you create a game? How could you be a gamer and not like it? Its a game that lets you create a game for crying out loud!!
Just not my thing sure I mess with map builders but its all a bit cutesy for me I may try it and like its just the least interesting launch game for me.
After watching the montages of community games, I was sold.. Its cutesy stuff they build for demos... But in those clips you see some amazing and diverse games.. You can make virtually anything.. Or I'm my case, let someone with more talent make them and I'll download it =)
Waiting for the catch, MS don't do free. Will be defiantly getting this on PC though, looks great
If anyone else listens to the RoosterTeeth podcast they would laugh at the fact you said 'Defiantly' as apposed to 'Definitely'
Neither do Sony. Everything (including Spark) is an incentive to get you to use their system and give them your money long term. Its not a bad thing, just good business. Delighted to hear this game is free btw. Always thought I'd like to try it but wasn't willing to pay for it.
I'm pretty sure they gave away 12 free games the last couple of months. And even if it does require gold its still free because you're not paying for the game.
Oh this game is not an exclusive to Xbox One? Ugh. So no Xbox required once again. I guess MS doesn't understand the notion of having unique one of a kind experiences to sell its hardware. They just can't seem to commit to dedicate anything to just Xbox. This makes sense now why it's not behind a pay wall since XBL for PC is dead. They would end up charging console players while the PC get it for free. This is not about doing the customer a favor. I may just get this for PC as well then.
*Windows 8* PC. I actually don't mind W8, personally. It's stable, fast, and the interface is nice once you get used to it. Basically W7 with a new interface. But there is that hook there. MS doesn't only sell hardware, you know.
Can't believe am hearing this. But Good job MS. Will have fun with it when it comes on X360.
How is the game monetised? Do you buy items to create levels?
In the future it will have paid dlc which includes new themes for level creation.
I could see it as strictly a selling tool for their platforms.. I mean.. You can literally see this as a million free games for Xbox one Buyers..
Waiting on the ps4 A-hole squad to come here and try ruin this. Yes I'm very aware that this may cost me a bubble but I'm tired of reading comment from people like ezz2013 trolling and getting more bubbles for it. OT: I'm looking forward to Project Spark, one of those games you just can't be mad at. @Fishy, easy to say when your choice in console does not invite retarded trolling at every turn. It is annoying.
Perhaps stick to the topic and others may do the same. Lead by example.
I'm having a hard time understanding why this is news. Since the launch of xbox live in 2002, most games have come with an online and an offline mode. The online mode requires xboxlive, the offline does not. Why would this be any different?
That's good to hear. Very creative game. I hope xbox fans enjoy this title =)
If none of it behind a paywall that is great maybe hope it is step in direction were free is really free. I was looking forward to this on pc but did it mention just window 8.This is only xbox exclusive i like the look of.
Finally some goodguymicrosoft.jpg news.
awesome....already have plans for that game.
I'm getting a PS4 and this title is probably my most wanted title that is exclusive to X1. I'm sure you'll have a blast playing it! :) create play share was always something I loved about some games out there.
i do hope you get that game someday...wont mind sharing my idea with others..
It is NOT exclusive to the X1. You can get it on Xbox360 or on PC which most people already have. No Xbox required.
But yet something I really give a sh*t about like Netflix is behind a paywall. Exactly why Im going to the darkside. Helloooo Sony. :)
Annoys me how I'm reading people saying no Xbox Required, remember that the next time you go off on about how Warframe is going to be so amazing on the PS4, no PS4 required. Granted, it looks like it's coming to XB1 in the future. OT: I really hope you can share levels between PC & 360/XB1 because a lot of people especially game designers are going to find the PC a much user friendly experience when creating games via Project Spark, so it only opens the possibilities even further.
