Resogun’s De Benetti: Games Aren’t Xbox One’s Priority, PS4 More Attractive for True Gamers

Housemarque’s Tommaso De Benetti, currently working on PS4 exclusive Resogun, has a quite clear idea on the comparison between the upcoming next generation titans Xbox One and PS4. (PS4, Resogun, Tommaso De Benetti, Xbox One)

Completely agree, MS showed how little they cared for the core gamer back in 2010 when they abandoned core games and gamers for Kinect and with how little they support the 360 to this day.

Sony have a reputation spanning decades of being known to be heavily gamer/game focused, but dont take my word for it, see for yourselves:


Not trolling, or being a fanboy, just posting cold hard facts. I gamed exclusively on 360 until 2010 and once i tasted Sony's 1st party exclusives there was no way i was going to back to gaming on a single console.

To the disagree's, just click the link. That's all you need to do.

It is great that Sony keeps launching PS3 games, even if the PS4 is so close, and you get high quality game after high quality game

core gamers make up a relatively small part of the overall gaming community.... both companies would be foolish to ignore them... also hasn't that image been proven wrong on both sides with games missing?

also MS has only been in the console game for 12 years now and they've created a fantastic game in Halo (best selling exclusive i think), gears which is a fantastic series and forza which is a great racer if ur into racers.

has sony done some great games yeah no doubt TLOU alone is fantastic and i'd highly recommend anyone who hasn't to go get it now

MS is still relatively new to the gaming world compared to Sony and Nintendo... Balmer was/is a dinosaur, stuck to his old ways and with him on his way out maybe MS will change more towards a 1st party beast like Sony's currently are

Just to be fair...lets take what a developer of an exclusive game for one platform says about the development of the other platform with just a pinch of salt.

how each one handles their affairs is on them. There is no rule that they must do the same exact thing.

Ya the X box 360 was a terrible console? No Microsoft are innovating exploring new ideas. Sony just upgraded their console so its games would look nicer to its fans.

Microsoft upgraded their graphics too, but they wanted to give their customer options other then gaming. Hows that suddenly wrong?

Just look at X box live, if they didn't care about hardcore gaming. Why so they invest and getting 300,000 Azure servers?

Every developer has free access to dedicated servers on XB1. Sony has offered nothing to its customer base!

"Hows that suddenly wrong?"

If you sacrifice better hardware for stuff like TV that is wrong for a GAMING console. Playing games should be the main focus, but instead they sacrifice on the gaming to make it a TV box.

You do know that the same Azure servers are used for every other MS product as well right? Those are not servers only used for Xbox Live, they use the same cloud infrastructure for all of their products so it`s not 300 000 servers dedicated for gaming.

MS offers dedicated servers for free, but that doesn`t mean they are great servers. You can end up with free servers that are crap. If that is the case we don`t know, they could be great but they could be crap as well.

I think the term, core gamer is far too stretched. I have played games since the early 80's, but find much less time to play these days, though my 6 yr old son can school me at lego Star wars.... does this make me less core gamer??? What does it mean anymore??? Times have changed, and I think what is perceived as 'core gamer' is a tiny minority... the big market is those that go about life doing many things, but find time for games too....

@ Darth, right on... I think what is considered hardcore now, is those who check the net everyday to see who is 'winning' I wonder do they even enjoy the actual gaming side of games!! I do not care, still get more or less every console released, make some mistakes and have games bought 6 months ago, yet to play.... sorry Borderlands 2, will give you proper time... My son is up at 6:30 to play skylanders, because he was smart enough to check it out on youtube and learn how to proceed... he is 6, I consider him more 'core gamer' than 90% of those who comment here....

Sorry, but I can only disagree with you in regards to MS. Halo wasn't theirs, or rather it became theirs after they bought Bungie who'd been working on the project well before the Xbox was even conceived. Likewise Gears was an outside commissioned work, while Forza has become tarnished by trying to be used to unseat GT only to fall back on publicly made commitments towards realism.

Don't get me wrong, its a good series, but they never should have tried to be both an arcade car porn racer *and* a realistic car simulator. Those are contradictions.

When Sony came into consoles they unseated Nintendo overnight because they saw where Nintendo had left themselves vulnerable and took advantage of that on a worldwide scale. They had no experience in gaming but were willing to learn. Have been.

When MS came into consoles they had already had a few PC titles. Thought they could get by on their name and really only saw the #1 gaming market: America. Bought into anything which looked like it might sell, and sold it largely in America and almost no where else. If the public premiere of the XB1 is any example, the policy reversals they were forced to make, they haven't learned anything.

After 12 years they have no excuse.

@ps4beaver...the term 'core' has been changed to fit the context of current gaming needs. Regardless that it is derived from the original word: hardcore, which by virtue was anyone who played games to a degree that exceeded casual levels.

Now its more about the game than the simple practice of playing games. I was considered hardcore growing up because i played anything and everything from the arcade to the home.

it didnt matter if it was tetris for hours on end or blowing through quarters on arcade fighters or racers. It was about the time invested into the craft.

Now, i dont have the time like i used to so...sadly...i have been kicked to the curb and called a casual gamer. It doesnt bother me as I play on my own time...casually enjoying games like god of war or mario kart with my kids.

Regardless of how the term is used by today's standards, i know in my heart i am still hardcore and dont need to prove anything to anyone.
christocolus  +   841d ago

dude i agree sonys exclusives were more this gen,but that link isnt painitng a proper picture why werent the following games listed there for 360? fable3 , lost odysee, blue dragon, halo wars,halo odst,pgr3, pgr4, alan wake, ninety nine nights, kameo, viva pinata, viva pinata trouble in paradise, banjoe kazooie nuts and bolts, perfect dark zero, amped 3, infinite undiscovery...well ms had just 3 or 4 major studios last gen but now they have more than double that number of studios and also doubled the size of the dev teams in those studios so im guessing things will even up this time around.

Microsoft isn't innovating on anything Sony hasn't already done before in one form or another with things like the PSX, PlayTV and the EyeToy and PS Eye.

You don't know how those servers even work. You think those are all physical servers dedicated to gaming on XBL only? hahaha
FamilyGuy  +   840d ago
@ christocolus

You just named a bunch of very old games when the compiled list clearly says 2010-2013

For example: Lost Odessy came out in 2007 in japan, 2008 in the U.S. Halo Wars came out in 2009 and Blue Dragon came out in 2007.

The main purpose of that list is to show MSs swing of focus from core gamers to casual gamers. Wanting to get console sales numbers that mirrored the Wii they started focusing on making kinect games as a priority in 2010. The picture is irrefutable evidence of this trend.

A PS4 developer praising the ps4?
Stop the press!
This is unheard of!

Ok so on a less sarcastic related note, I have to ask what exactly is a 'true' gamer?
I have been gaming since the Atari 2600 and never stopped. By most people's standards I am a gamer, well and truly.

Now ironically, I am really looking forward to the implementation of Kinect 2.0 fitness. You know,that game where you jump around in front of the TV and it tracks you and helps you to be healthy while having fun. What a great Idea. Can't wait for that game.

Why does this developer get to decide that his game is a true game while other games that I like are not befitting the true gamer label?

IS there some secret society that gets to decide what makes gamers true or not?

It just makes me laugh.
I have been around for too long playing video games to pay heed to some misguided notion of gamer status. Fanboy stuff, really.

Granted, Halo sells well, but it's not the best selling exclusive, as a google search would tell you. Actually, it's quite far from it (Mario-franchise, Wii-franchise, Gran Turismo are some of the ones ahead of it).

Also, they're not THAT new to the gaming world compared to Sony. They have two generations behind them, Sony has three. Don't see why that would matter though.

Boody-Bandit  +   840d ago

You nailed it. There isn't a whole lot to add to what you already said. After 2 generations MS just doesn't get it. The path they have chosen with the X1 makes absolutely no sense to me. IMO they are 2 years late to the party with the direction they are headed with the X1.

They're building their console around and all in one box but most of the features they are offering already exist on practically everything like smart tv's, smart phones, laptops, pcs, tablets, smart receivers, etc. Some of those options already have voice and camera controls as well. My Samsung smart TV has both voice and camera controls. So what was the point of implementing these features while sacrificing power that would've been better served on gaming to do so?

I still feel they should have a sku without Kinect and lower the price at least $100 dollars or more. The only 2 games I'm interested in on the X1 hardware is Killer Instinct and Forza 5. But not enough to spend $1600 dollars to do so. At least the way I prefer to play racers and fighting games. Madcatz KI stick $200+, TX 458 wheel $750+ and the console and both games $620+.

I don't see myself not getting an X1 any time soon. Been on the fence because I'm a big Forza fan but most likely will hold out to see if Fanatec can update my CSR Elite to work on the X1 or what they might offer next. The TX 458 wheel from Thrustmaster looks decent enough but it's not compatible with my Fanatec CSP pedals and nothing on the market beats them under -$1k. Besides from everything I have seen about the TX 458 my CSR Elite is already a notch above that as well. I don't see spending nearly $800 dollars on an FFB combo to get lesser than what I already own. Another big mistake by MS. Not allowing backwards compatibility with existing peripherals.

@PS4 Beaver

I wouldn't bother with it. The label "core" has no real context. People just use it in whatever way it is convenient for making themselves look like some superior form of gamer. You can tell the terms core and casual really aren't worth much when if you ask everyone in here what they mean, you would get 100 hundred different definitions that could all have several holes poked in them to reveal no consistency. That is why I disregard what this guy says because of the fact that he thinks he has the right mandate what a "true" gamer is.

Given their rather assertive comments at E3 on their views of DRM,or more particular game ownership, I highly doubt we'll see it in the PS4 generation. They already have DRM in their digital content, but so does everyone else, and buying digital is a choice, not a mandate.
jamsam360  +   840d ago
Thats all i am saying, Maybe at some point later in the next gen or the next next gen, everyone will have to worry about DRM! Sony was going to do it and then backed out when they found out about the xbox ones drm! Every smart person knows this! Microsoft was thinking that sony was going to have DRM as well until E3! Microsoft had a plan stuck with it and found out it was not well received and then they changed there polocies!

Those links you provided prove nothing about Sony ever directly saying they were even considering DRM. The vg247 link just shows 2 tweet responses of Sony execs being tweeted at about Sony consumer outrage over MS going DRM and telling Sony not to do the same.

The PS4daily link is nothing but assumptions and speculation that Sony decided not to go DRM after the outrage of consumers over MS's decision to go full DRM.

No where has Sony ever gone on record saying they were even considering DRM and the PS4 hardware wasn't built around DRM like the X1 was. That is all mere speculation, assumptions and wishful thinking of MS only consumers that Sony was considering the same abysmal path MS try to pull with the X1.

You are MAD its pretty obvious. You quickly went to name calling and finger pointing instantly. You ended your links with i got more. But really you most likely picked the best of what you had to show case your point but your point is nothing but "What if" and "Take our word for it"

DRM is the future but not M$ model of it that's for sure. MS had the most anti consumer DRM policies to date on a mass scale.

Anyways you're out of bubbles so i won't get a response but its not really like your response are thought out and they quickly went from level headed to off the deep end right away.

I see nothing from you that would warrant someone giving you the benefit of the doubt much less the journalists.
rainslacker  +   839d ago
I think you guys broke jamsam...

Anyways, everyone said what I could possibly say.

I will bring up a point from one of those links though to help you feel better. There was some mention from a Sony exec that they considered including the camera but decided against it. They made no mention that they wanted to sell the system for $500. In fact everything said to date indicates they had their $399 in place well before E3. If they cut the camera they likely cut it to not take such a big loss at $399.

Sony saw the camera as a marginal accessory that many would not care about. I guess we can thank MS for that, since the Kinect is also a marginal accessory that not many care about.

Sony showed the camera at the reveal, but made no mention of it being included. This could have been to try and persuade MS to include Kinect, because it's very likely that MS would think Sony would release the system at $499 w/camera. MS would know about what the system would cost to make, and about what Sony would sell it for. They both have talented market analyst to determine those things. Sony could have played MS on this whole thing, and Sony could have never had any intention of including the camera. Or they just decided to not take such a loss on the console. We'll likely never know, and unlike you, I won't take some random article saying it's true as proof of anything. I can speculate on possibilities on my own, I don't need made up articles to do it for me.

I will be getting both systems however I will be getting the xb1 first and the ps4 second because it only has one true next gen game at launch. Not taking anything away from knack but imo it doesn't look like this game should be sold at average retail price.

The xb1 will be getting my money first because of its GAMES and its features to a lesser extent. No agenda, no hatred, no allegiance. A true gamer plays games not names.

I have both systems paid off and will be getting the ps4 first but only cause it releases first obviously However, I am looking forward to the xb1 the most. I'm really excited to try the "tv tv tv" feature, how can you not love that hdmi input!? I also like what kinect brings to the table too. I like it for the little things like controlling the ui or talking to it, head tracking, gestures.. I don't want it to take over the buttons but just compliment them in a good game I hoped Sony would include theirs too in order to give that technology full support but Sony chose not to so I hope ms does great things with kinect and it really takes off in the way motion did for wii and beyond that point, you blind if you can't see the great potential kinect can bring to gaming..

I would be surprised if xb1 didn't take over my living room.. I would give up a little bit of power for that hdmi port, the xb1 will be no slouch and still do much more than what the ps4 can do out the box. Also you ppl see it as paying an extra 100 for kinect I see it as paying extra for the hdmi input and it's clear I love it and trust me Im probably more of a "hardcore" gamer than most of you, it's not just about how many hours you clock into a game but how you support the industry as a whole.

^wait, you're talking about what exactly? The One's ability for HDMI switching? serious question, as i haven't read that much about it...

My H/K home theater receiver has built in Full HD switching for 4 inputs...with a button press i keep HD sound decoding, don't have to mess with any of that, between my PS3, a PC, and even my android phone (which has an mini-HDMI output)...and the TV input is never HDTV also has HDMI control, so one single remote does all stock TV remote can even turn my ps3 on and off, and pretty much do everything until i start playing a game...I'm just saying, from what i've seen so far, the advantage the xbox has over that is back to Kinect, as it can be activated via voice...

So i realize not everyone has a receiver like that...and for those the One's switching, i guess, is pretty good...but still, is just changing TV inputs that big of a deal?...i don't use that method because i'd then have to change sources on my receiver for sound (my setup lets it all be done with a single button press)...I also find real time television a complete joke any more, haven't had a TV subscription since 2007...

just pointing out...This article is mostly about the true fact that most of the xbox one's 'new' features are not related to actual gaming...I'm not sold on the Ps4's new features yet either, so not taking sides...but so far...for me personally...neither console is adding enough in any direction for me to buy one yet...that goes for non-gaming (input switching), and gaming (2013 and still no unanimous 1080/60fps)...i'm yet to be blown away by either of them...i guess i won't know until i actually get my hands on one at a store or something...which was the same case with this current generation to begin with...

Yea i def. Don't have a receiver like that i just like the complete package xb1 brings and Im prepared to take full advantage of it with great online connection and i have been a cable subscriber for a little over a decade now and enjoy the movies and shows it has to offer..

No its not that big of a deal but its one of those "why not" the console is usually in the living room and i would much rather have the ui from ms, i have optimum and theirs is complete Garbage!

Yes some features have nothing to do with gaming but in all honesty i don't play games all day every day so it makes me feel better that after spending 500 on the console its not just restricted to games i can enjoy the console for tv and internet with the ease of the snap feature that lets me go back and forth so easily..

Yes i know ps4 will have internet too... I just think xb1 does non gaming things better and smoother and i really don't feel like i or ms should be ashamed of that especially since imo ps4 will not be that much more powerful like everyone here claims, it can only help grow the video game industry and as a hardcore game that's all i want so that our entertainment can be that much more stronger against ppl like like jack Thompson.

Their is no need to hate me or bubble me down because Im not the enemy just one of the few that's all about great games no matter the console its on Im just a little more excited for xb1 because its going to deliver a new experience for me and i have been gaming on nothing but consoles since Atari so it excites me to see a console equipped to take complete control of my tv with a better ui and still give me great games that look great..

I agree with you, don't you think someone is pretty hardcore when they own all consoles with all the AAA games and the latest handhelds with all the great Games? Or is a hardcore gamer to you is a certain bunch on N4g? or someone that clocks a million hrs into a Game?

But yet X1 has more exclusive titles and content on 360 vs ps3. And for the first year between ps4 vs x1, ms also has more titles slated to drop for x1. I really don't understand the fanboy ish. I understand that some people can't afford both next gen systems but its funny when people spew OPINIONS that scream fanboy-ism then have difficulty supporting them with facts.

-Ps4 has a stronger GPU
-X1 has stronger cpu
-Sony and its previous free online experience was no match for the Xbox live paid subscription community. Its expected that X1 multiplayer experience will keep the trend by having a better online experience vs Ps4 thanks to features such as cloud, dedicated servers and more.
-If ps3 vs x360 is an indication.., then Xbox One will have more exclusive titles and content than ps4.

But in the end none of this won't really matter, because I'm a gamer with a job. So im buying both consoles. But really the fanboy ish is out of hand. Also before you cry and rant support your disagreement with list the exclusive titles for each system, bet you im right.

Games are not the focus on XB1, it just has better games and more of them on a online network designed to bring games to a whole new level. Ok, got it!

All these game shows MSFT has been going to and all the awards XB1 games have been getting, having gamers more excited is all in my head. All XB1's being devkits and the billions invested in games for this generation is all imaginary.

Devs working on PS4 exclusives are as bad as Sony fanboys buying their games.

Huge games like
Quantum Break
Halo 5

And many more like fable, Crackdown, Sunset overdrive etc are all imaginary.

Come on Sony tell your devs to have some class.

If you buy a console for it's launch titles, that won't be a very good decision for you in the long run.
DigitalRaptor  +   840d ago

Do I really need to base my decision purely on launch titles? Launch titles have NEVER been the judge of a console's fate, ever. Indies are a part of the package, and we all know more AAA is how Sony plays it. Sony are getting the indie developers with the unique, creative and original vision first. Get them early, treat them well, get them forever.

And when PS3 is still dropping exclusives from Sony, why would I be in any demand for more AAA exclusives on PS4? I would if I gamed only on Xbox consoles, but fortunately that's not the case.

They have made 4 games for xbox platform. 2 of which were also on playstation platform so really only 2 were specific to xbox.

on playstation, pretty much 7 games total (2 were on xbox). that leaves 5 that were not just developed for PS but also published by sony.

But as for exclusives, Sony always had enough of them anyway.

I think alot is going to depend on os's of each console, what's possible day 1 and works well.

Multiplats will surely play a part.

Narutone66  +   840d ago
If it's not a FPS, it won't sell well on the Xbox console. Maybe that's the reason why they made more games for the PS console than for Xbox.

So all the games at launch plus the un-announced games, not mention dedicated servers, the focus on improving the controller and Xbox One games are not a priority? Well then wow, because that could have fooled me.

But then again this is a developer releasing an exclusive PS4 indie title. And according to N4G, devs who work with a certain company HAVE to say good things about the console they're releasing on. It's what we here call PR spin right? This should be no different.

MS abandoned me? Really?

I'm actually playing playing Halo 4, the new Gears of War, Alan Wake: AN, not to mention Ascend: Hand of Kul and Happy Wars. Looking forward to Max: Brotherhood and Lococycle, Oh but Sony's 1st party drops one or two exclusives this year and that equals to them bathing you with all this content. And what does your question have to do with what I said...nothing.

So if Sony has all of that, then how come Xbox One's priority isn't games? Obviously if they included everything that Sony has to their new system then their priority must be games too right?

But of course I deserve one bubble for stating something that goes against what everyone is high fiving each other about.

How do you explain that MS has abandoned the 360 core gamer for years?
GodGinrai  +   841d ago
I normally dont agree with heavy but, c'mon dude. MS have been slacking with the x360 ever since they shifted their focus to ninetendo Wii audience.lets go into this a bit. and I want you to know before I start..I love the x360 and refuse to call its XB1 the "Xbone" now I got that out the way..

Lets start with the low number of first party devs and why NOW more than ever it would be saving their ass....It goes without saying that the 360 has been starved of exclusive stuff for the hardcore gamer for the last few years. outside of Halo 4, forza horizon and one last gears, whet else have they given us except kinect crap.

They could have bought bioware but they didnt..costing them Mass effect and any other Bioware ip as an exlusive. The old Xbox team MS would have seen the value in having mass effect AND dragon age as Xbox exclusives. There are other example. Couple that with their reluctance to accelerate the funding and developemnt of NEW internal studios and they will end up short on the games front to Sony indefinetly until they can adress that. Its been years now. maybe they never will.Maybe they dont need to any more because we are now the minority...

And then there is the fact that anytime we here the words "Xbox" and exclusive in the same sentence, we all ask ourselves the question "for how long?". Its as if They JUST DONT GET IT.

Games sell consoles. Exclusives make your console more in PROPER exclusives. They secured titan fall...that should be life time..yet we are asking how as a company that wants to sell consoles cannot grasp that True exclusives KEEP you their. It dont matter If you sold me an Xbox. If I No longer feel the need to play games on it other than the ones I bought over a year ago..and I am putting my money into sony or valves steam service because I am finding games on there that I cant find on 360..and I cant find a descent new interesting game on 360 that I cant find anywhere else..they lose my money as a consistent spender.

The DRM/180 fisaco would have been more stomachable to most pepole if they had the more powerful console. But instead we are hearing reports that both COD and titanfall are 720P. This does NOT bode well for future development on the console.

Those are a lot of games that you Sony fanboys didn't support but are quick to add them on your precious lists when you want to beat your chest about who has more of what.

I can understand if all those games where huge hits but they weren't and because of it some of those 1st party devs closed shop or moved on to being 3rd party.

@ Jetlian

If his point was that Microsoft has sold more exclusive games than Sony, it wouldn't be by much and it would only be due to Halo. A series that has seen a new release every single year since 2009. Is it any surprise that the most popular series on Xbox sold more?

So, Microsoft has sold more Halo games than Sony..... okay..... and Sony has provided an overwhelming diverse number of exclusives for its audience than Microsoft have even considered. And somehow what Microsoft did for its audience is better than what Sony did for its audience?

I thought you'd retired this "games sales for teh win" argument after it's been proven irrelevant time and time again.

@ XboxFun

Yep, every single Sony fanboy can buy every single Sony exclusive as well as every single multiplat they are interested in. And just like every single Sony fanboy on the Internet is representative of the entire gaming demographic. Man you guys keep using this argument of "not supporting those games" like it actually has substance.

The points made and the reasons those lists exist, is because of the diversity in offering, since not every gamer will like the same games, and niche games exist for a reason. Some of the best games out there are niche, but to you they are Failures... but you don't know what they are because they're not a part of the fanboy wars. They just exist in modest silence played by those that like them and appreciate that they are part of a wider selection of games.

Starhawk and Twisted Metal are both super fun multiplayer games that I'm sure would have been popular with a few thousand people if they were on PC and Xbox 360 platform, alongside PS3. But they're failures cause you didn't play them to judge things for yourself, and were never going to.

M$ ploy: On the eXBox360. Starve the owners of the console of decent games, then release another sequel of the same IP, millions of game starved console owners go in a frantic to buy the new release as they have to justify their ownership of the console as well. Records are broken again so instant pseudo perceived "Success". Microsoft throws a party with the key note "We made it we are OK for another season". The console owners carry on paying for everything live and sundry for another year with little to gain.

Lets not discuss the RROD saga. It's a travesty!!! (Yet people still trust M$)

Poor gullible American gamers. If you cannot see through that ploy then just buy your eXB0ne for the same future "rinse and repeat" experience. I do not see M$ change any time soon just because of a few 180's since the E3. They just want to ensure a huge install base then they will return to their roots and enforce their agenda with reversed 180's et al. Bookmark this post for future reference.

Then there are the new M$ version of the Nintendo fad. Jump and wave at the TV for entertainment, this time hands free. Although myself will enjoy that for short periods with the family having fun it's not a gaming trend. There is no way that you will be able to keep it up for hours on end. So half the M$ resources will be split between core gaming and family fun. Not good for console gamers.

If the current gen of the eXBox360 is taken as a example of M$'s commitment then I have to say I am sorry but I am not sold. I am not that stupid or gullible as I have seen nothing that M$ is changing their ways heading into the future. Taking Ryse etc. away from the 360 to be rehashed for the eXB0Ne proves that fact to me and shows how far Microsoft would go just to get their way whilst bluffing the gullible again. GT6 on the PS3 in an opposing few shows WHY I can trust and rely on SONY to deliver the same good as what they have done for years to come.

Peace. Enjoy the eXB0ne while I pray I am wrong about M$. In the mean time I will enjoy my PS3 and PS4 for years to come and expect many a great title's and new IP's to come my way in future!

If and a big IF M$ did change their ways I will maybe get a eXB0Ne in future.

Currently I would not be able to feel the same way as you guys about M$ yet. It's a shame but it's the factual truth!

People should buy a console for line-up of life cycle that's what.
Hicken  +   840d ago
I guess you'll still be playing JUST those launch games in five years, huh? Cuz they're all that count. Cuz Microsoft didn't do the same thing with the 360, only for its last few years to dry up utterly.
Belking  +   841d ago

I believe you meant Kinect Sports Rivalry. Anyway, both consoles have seen atleast one title delayed to a later date. It happens. The only thing that made Drive Club and Watch Dogs stand out more than Kinect Sports did is because both were being marketed heavily already as system launch titles all the way up until basically 30 days before launch.

I think a core gamer can look at either console and find plenty to be satisfied with. I can understand why someone who's project is bankrolled by Sony would make such a comment , but it isn't realistic.

Will be plenty of games available at launch, and plenty for the foreseeable future on Xbox, and there is no indication otherwise.

I still grapple with the notion that a Console needs to be 'focused' on gaming. It's a game console. It plays games, so developers will make games for it? What more focus is needed. How does the consoles abilities to do other things somehow signal that it will be less able to play core games.

My cellphone can be used for doing thing other than taking and receiving calls, but it still can take calls as well as the best of them.
ebreda  +   840d ago
Exactly. People talk like it's bad that MS is offering more than the abillity to run games on it.

On top of that, if PS4 focus is only on gaming it doesn't mean is better for everyone. People have different expectations, you know. I love both my Ps3 and my 360 equally, i run different games on them (exclusives), I choose the best version of multiplatform games.


...frequently I turn on the 360 just to navigate in the dashboard, discover new apps, new indie games, run some video apps (twitch) and participate in party chats. Fuck me, right?!

I respect the decision of those thinking that a machine focused only on gaming is better for them. I actually prefer the broader entertainment appeal of the One, and I would certainly hope people would respect that as well. And for a machine "not focused on gaming", the One seems to have the better launch lineup of the 2, IMO. People can try to bad mouth Forza 5 all they want because of "pre-baked lighting" (most don't even know what it means and even more than that could not tell it apart from real time lighting on a side by side comparison), but the fact is Forza is the best rated racing franchise for a long time. If GT was a launch game for the PS4 I bet every Sony fan would be drooling all over it, despite being the worse series of the 2 for the last 5 years or so.

Anyway, I have both preordered at Amazon since june 10th and I'm glad I'll be able to take advantage of each platform strenghts.

Games are for gamers or anyone else who may decide to play them. Why do many people feel the need to be divided over such a trivial matter. Games are designed for everyone. Not a particular group. It's for everyone to enjoy should they decide to. It's immature and stupid for people to fight over what they believe is their choice in gaming. Can't it simply be just that... Your choice.
T2  +   841d ago
Yes but some lively debate isnt a bad thing ... Its like a. Mustang vs. Camaro rivalry ... But hey if u can afford both get both and if u can afford a 2k gaming pc , aka porsche then by all means go nuts
boogie305  +   841d ago
True but it's far from lively. It gets pathetic and disgusting in a flash. Can't wait till I get both systems so I can enjoy a multitude of games. My loyalty is to myself and my wife of course. Can't play games peacefully unless I show her some attention as well Lol!

if true gamers only play indie game then im a noob
i play core games not indie games if i want indie games i have ipad and an android phone i don't need 400$ for that shit
ZHZ90  +   841d ago
Yeah sure anyone who plays indie games including Titanfall is a noob since Respawn is indie which means independent developer.
trywizardo  +   840d ago
you just went full retarded , never go full retarded
ZHZ90  +   840d ago
The retarded and ignorant is you, do you even know what does indie means?

Indie means independent developer and that is what Respawn, the creators of Titanfall, are.
destructo888  +   840d ago
Respawn is just the development studio, Titanfall is being released by EA.

by your logic Halo is an indie game because it's made by Bungie even tho it's owned by Microsoft

ZHZ90  +   840d ago
@destructo888, yes thank youfor pointing out my point. But again Respawn is an indie.

@LoveOfTheGame, I don't speak with moron trolls like you.

I have noticed a trend popping up more and more on N4G with a few sites in particular. A majority of their "news" items are merely them stripping out content from other sites and commenting on it in their site article and then posting here at N4G. This article is a prime example of that behavior. Yes they give credit to the original article but its just lazy journalism. There is no effort to get an interview themselves ...just skimming other sites to get news for their own and in really bad cases taking words out of context.

On topic... I am sure there are a number of indie devs that feel/felt the same way about the two boxes.

Xbone is an entertainment console, PS4 is a gaming console.

You buy a console for games not cable.
BobBelcher  +   840d ago
I disagree with this comment.
CJDUNCAN  +   840d ago
It's not like the PS4 is strictly a gaming machine. They will still have netflix, hulu, etc. So because X1 can actually be a pass through for your cable services it's looked at as a negative?

I agree with the premise though that MS isn't focusing like they should on games. End of the day games is what matters to me and I'm still getting an X1 on day 1. But the extra features is a plus in my book.

Recent history tells a much different story...

The PS2 sold millions of consoles because it was just as cheap as a DVD player and games machine. Personally, that is the way I justified the purchase to my significant other at the time. And I am sure many others did too.

The Wii was successful by taking game controls in a new direction. Motion gaming was its selling point. Nobody can tell me WiiSport almost 8-bit graphics sold that device well. It wasmore the concept of the controller.

The PS3 was DoA for games in the first year plus. And the major justification for its purchase was the Blu-ray player. Very few people wanted to shell out $600 for just a games machine.

X1 is just making sure there are lots of reasons to buy their console.

What gamers do not realize is that gaming is a niche market and it cannot support the entire industry on core gamers alone. Gaming needs to have the fringe gamers and casual gamers to keep up innovation in the space.

I know a lot of people talk about the games industry being $75 billion dollars worldwide... Well, the GDP of the US alone is $20 trillion dollars on a yearly basis. So gaming isn't even a blip in the overall scheme of the US nevermind the whole planet.

Gamers have to realize that these console need to be more than just game machines to survive longer term. And that is why companies like MS are trying to broaden their appeal. That is good for gaming and it is good for the consoles they are trying to sell.

Gamers - Devs - Ps4.

Easy to understand, I am at a loss of words, as to why some ignore it, refuse to believe it, & love the lie from a company, who has proven to have hood-winked it's customers, in the name of profit.

I can't wait to play Resogun, with my cousin in the mid-west. Like how we used to play R-Type, when we were kids.
