Because money.

If a publisher taking on a game and providing funding for a project that would not exist otherwise is bad, I don't want to be right.
Mr_cheese  +   240d ago
The project already existed, he states that. The Microsoft deal came into play later on, which he states was because they could be on the next gen platform on day one. Surely they could have been on both platforms if it wasn't for the money... Not a bad thing, it's just business.

And what was stopping them from being on the PS4 on day instead? You're being naive. Its money, plain, pure and simple
Kaze88  +   240d ago
Like on Bayonetta 2? No, its the money. Also i think that in Bayonetta 2's case its impossible that no other than Nintendo wanted to publish it...like one of THE most high rated action hack and slash sequel and none wants to publish it...cmon. I believe if they had asked Sega or Sony or MS would have published it.
Mr_cheese  +   240d ago
Who is being naive? I'm under the impression that had Capcom wanted it to, then DR3 would have been a launch title for both systems, but when Microsoft intervened with what ever amount of money they offered. Capcom was sold, and went exclusive. I don't for a second doubt this.

Is money also the reason for deep down being exclusive?
KentBlake  +   240d ago
Probably. Third party exclusives are all about money. The difference is Sony has first party studios that actually matter.
DrRobotnik  +   240d ago
Ps4 will probably get Super Dead Rising 3 Ultimate Edition later.

At 1080P and 60FPS not 720P and sub 30FPS and looking current gen i have seen better textures in GTAV.

Another GS fanboy statement... Imagine that!

Dead rising has never looked that great. Even dead rising 2 looked pretty bad but the people who play dead rising don't play it because it looks amazing. They play it to have fun. And yes you could argue "well it could look amazing and still be fun." I know this but that's not the point even if a game doesn't play in 1080p and 60fps if it still looks good and plays well why does it matter?
JsonHenry  +   240d ago
@vallencer - Dead Rising 2 on the PC maxed out looked pretty good. I'm still hoping Dead Rising 3 comes to the PC or PS4 since I am still not sure if I'm going to get an X1 or not.

Well yeah cause pc has a lot more settings options and can upgrade hardware. I was just referring to consoles haha. I wish people who are buying a ps4 were able to play the game. I'm not really a big fan of exclusives honestly. I love gaming and not everyone can afford both consoles so it's kind of a bummer.

On the Ps4 version the zombies won't step on each other like they do on the x1 version of DR3...they'll simply have a brain.

@ DrRobotnik Agree.

In a way, this timed exclusivity (as it should be seen,) was the best thing that could have happened for fans of DR.

Cross-platform development, historically, has had to hamstring one version or the other with conscessions for the sake of parity.
When the ps4 version releases (under a different name with added features) the code will have been optimized (most likely with better FPS etc...) with the delay given as a valid reason. Thats something that WOULD NOT have happened (or accepted by rival console manfacturers) during a simultaneous release.

Yeah, Capcom always does this sort of thing. I remember when RE4 came out exclusively to gamecube, only to later have the superior version release on PS2 with more features and $10 cheaper.
DOMination-  +   240d ago
The ps2 version had more content but I'm fairly confident that the GC version was superior. The PS2 had a 333mhz cpu and the cube was 500mhz. It was way more powerful and although the port was good I remember there being a difference

Just like titanfall

Shame that its a launch title, could have used a few more months of polish to iron out the frame rate issue.
DARK WITNESS  +   240d ago
urmmmm... because MS paid for it?

Money talks!

We all know the rason, but I'm wondering how much Microsoft paid, because were talking about Capcom here. Capcom will never pass up on a bunch of money, i can just imagine the numbers if that game was released on both consoles.
True_Samurai  +   240d ago
Because MS can make it rain they have deep pockets
Tidybrutes  +   240d ago
Such an insightful explanation *sniggers*

Because Microsoft paid you for it to be.
KwietStorm  +   240d ago
So they had no clue what platform they were making it for, but through the powers of interpretation, they knew it was "next gen." Then all of a sudden Microsoft offers them an "opportunity." Seems legit.

People complain all the time about things we all know are completely legal!
Sony has a history for not sweetening the pot. Blame them and not Microsoft or Nintendo
For knowing how business works.
Guess you get indies instead! No real good games on ps4 for me until infamous...
GirlOnFire  +   240d ago
This game deserves better. It could of been next gen. ^~^
headblackman  +   240d ago
it kills me to watch these PlayStation fanbots talk about Microsoft paying a company for an exclusive game. that's apart of the game for all companies they don't own the studio. it just so happens that Microsoft is a 300+billion dollar company competing against a 90+billion dollar company. that's a no brainer on which can afford to thrown money into the success of their product and who can't. but it is good to know that the companies console that I'm getting has that big bank added to their arsenal to bring the things that matter to the console of my choice. consumers fight with their dollars and so do companies.

Great game that cant even run at steady 30fps on the so call new hardware,KEEP IT!Its because of people like you that buy games half produced that this industry see no reason to evolve.A crap developed game and people are going to buy it,what will the devs do the next time...well release the same crap because they know theres always stupid people that buy there crap games no matter what!

any system that's not a strong PC would bog down a little with that much going on at one time on the screen. and from the looks love current videos, its holding up very nicely, so I don't know what the hell your PlayStation fanbot ass is talking about. you stick with your lame ass knack and I'll stick with my dead rising 3. (game time come November 22nd)

It's because DR3's awesome framerate is only possible with the cloud...
