PS4 and PS3 timed exclusives confirmed for Xbox One

"All developers care about is being able to make the games they want and get them into the hands of as many people as possible," says Iron Galaxy's David Lang.

Neonridr877d ago

The title makes it seem like there is multiple games to be mentioned. But really it's just one, Divekick.

dirigiblebill877d ago

And Cosmic Star Heroine, down the page.

Neonridr877d ago

ah, missed that one, thanks.

"We've been working on Xbox One games for a while now, and because of that you can bet Divekick will take advantage of all the platform's unique capabilities."

That's cool, but I don't care much for every little indie game on a next gen console unless its a really superb game.

creatchee877d ago

@4Sh0w

Apparently you've never heard about Divekick before. It's kind of a big deal in the fighting game community.

cleft5877d ago

The sad thing is that they didn't have these indie games day 1. Divekick should have been on the xbox 360 but it wasn't because of their outdated policies. The reality is that all of these indie games that Sony is getting for the PS4/PS3/Vita should just be on the Xbox platform. It's not like they are really pushing the boundaries that far graphically, yet they aren't their because of antiquated policies on Microsoft part that they are only reversing because of Sony's stance.

While I am glad to see that Xbox One users will be able to enjoy these games on that platform, they should have just been their day 1. The fact that they weren't is a failure on Microsoft part, but I am glad to see they are correcting their mistakes.

saber00005877d ago

Games of which I never heard so I guess it's not a big deal?

Unreal01877d ago

Am I missing something here? Divekick looks terrible! I genuinely felt embarrassed just watching the trailer for it, and here's people trying to make it sound like it's amazing.

morganfell877d ago

"Timed exclusives confirmed."

If it's timed isn't that already...nevermind.

dedicatedtogamers877d ago

Then shouldn't the title be "DiveKick and Cosmic Star Heroine announced for Xbox One" instead of the current flamebait title?

dirigiblebill877d ago

@Neonridr

No offence, but I find it fairly hilarious that the N4G community considers your factually inaccurate comment to be "well said". Pretty solid show of this site's politics, there.

0ut1awed877d ago (Edited 877d ago )

It's funny because the DiveKick dev said just a few weeks back....

"Most people can't see the difference between 720p and 1080p."

Now I know why. I almost picked up the game when it was on sale a few weeks back for my Vita. I'm glad I didn't.

Neonridr877d ago

@dirigiblebill - maybe it's because I was polite and thanked you for pointing out the title I missed, lol.

SilentNegotiator877d ago

Looks like MS no longer has the leverage to demand simultaneous releases. Good.

dirigiblebill877d ago

@Neonridr

I suppose that's possible ;)

UltimateMaster876d ago

I'm guessing they are jumping high in the air in glory.
But who really liked divekick?

user5575708876d ago

ugh what a waste i just gave that website another hit

abzdine876d ago

this is ONE desperate call from an xbox website.

majiebeast877d ago

The port begging in the article comment section is hilarious.

jackanderson1985877d ago

ha yeah some clearly don't understand what an indie is... uncharted and TLOU yeah only way that's happening is if MS buy out sony and dissolve the PS4

GrandTheftZamboni877d ago

I thought the guy mentioning Uncharted and Last of Us was being sarcastic.

sonarus877d ago

Even if there are multiple games, who cares.

Gorilla_Killa_X877d ago

@creatchee I've played divekick and it is not that great and I haven't heard anybody in the fighting community talking about it.

Omegasyde877d ago

He's full of BS.

The game was fun for about 5 minutes - Best played with someone next to you with Beer.

Ohohoho877d ago

I once got a world of fanboy hate for saying DiveKick requires no skill on a DiveKick tournament video, so there are definitely people talking about it.

kenshiro100876d ago

It's more of a joke game, lol.

StoutBEER877d ago

Sweet! This and Primal Carnage Genesis are all that i'm jealous of PS4 owners of. Come on Primal Carnage! Want Primal Carnage more than this though! XD

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney876d ago (Edited 876d ago )

All games that aren't being 100% funded by one of the big 3 have a strong chance of jumping to more platforms

Wintersun616877d ago

That is so true. So many examples of that happening like Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy, Mass Effect, Bioshock, Grand Theft Auto, Dead Rising 2, Lost Planet and those are just a handful of the big ones.

Cueil876d ago

Mass Effect started out being 100 percent MS funded

NYC_Gamer877d ago (Edited 877d ago )

MS came out of their pocket and put up funds to have Titanfall..Why are people making it seem like EA just gave the game to MS for nothing?3rd party software won't be exclusive unless one of the big 3 opens up their check books and cough up the funds.

Ohohoho877d ago (Edited 877d ago )

But it's on PC as well.

Plus, why would MS pay for only one game in what's going to be a series?

GrandTheftZamboni877d ago

@Ohohoho

"why would MS pay for only one game"

MS is pinching pennies.

moparful99877d ago

@ohohoho Considering that Microsoft is getting all kinds of preferential treatment in the form first access to BF4 dlc, exclusive content for Fifa and Madden and the timed exclusivity of Plants vs Zombies garden warfare its safe to say Microsoft gave them a lot of money..

Cueil876d ago

"It's on PC" ... yes on Windows... a Microsoft OS

Convas877d ago

Indie games will be on every platform they can get on to. That is the very definition of indie games.

Expect indie games to only remain exclusive if they've been funded by Sony/MS/Ninty.

Baka-akaB877d ago

Wow way to overhype the release of something like Divekick ...

FANTA1180877d ago

divekick looks like complete trash ....

ground_beef877d ago

Well it did get low scores from most critics out there. Check out its meta and game rankings scores, I think it's somewhere around the 60's mark. Anyways I was so hyped for this game, I thought it would be an indie gem.

FANTA1180877d ago

they need to make a sequel to limbo

that was a gem

ground_beef877d ago

Yeah limbo was amazing, a sequel is a great idea.

ground_beef876d ago (Edited 876d ago )

Actually I agree it ain't worth 15, but I got it for free as part of ps+, I think a good price for limbo would be 8 dollars or "7.99", but all in all it's a good game.

Veneno877d ago

See, Divekick could have been a cool, even virally popular game. Where they went wrong was they made the game's story and characters a satire of not the fighting game scene, but of the fighting game TOURNAMENT scene, which is a tiny tiny subculture in and of itself. which means, no one outside of that scene is going to understand the "jokes" and parodies of the game outside of about 1,000 people.

The humor is very obnoxious as well. It's mostly jokes about Capcom and people you've never heard about and won't bother to look up.

Had they just created an original story and characters this game would have appealed to a wider audience. but instead they chose to feed their own ego, which i guess comes with the Indie game territory.

Baka-akaB877d ago

Come on ... the scene is niche , but you exagerate the size of it . The "stream monsters" , wich are already a tiny offshoot and niche within the FGC , are easily at least 100K strong ...

Veneno877d ago

If you know that crowd than you know perfectly well how opinionated it is and it is a love it or hate crowd which mAKEes it even more difficult for Divekick to be likeable within its own niche.

Baka-akaB876d ago

Yeah sure , i was just nitpicking the whole "1000 men scene" part of the argument
