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. (Divekick, Xbox One)

Neonridr  +   796d ago | Well said
The title makes it seem like there is multiple games to be mentioned. But really it's just one, Divekick.
dirigiblebill  +   796d ago
And Cosmic Star Heroine, down the page.
Neonridr  +   796d 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.

Apparently you've never heard about Divekick before. It's kind of a big deal in the fighting game community.
cleft5  +   796d 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 Divekick should have been on the xbox 360 but it wasn't because of their outdated policies.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.

Games of which I never heard so I guess it's not a big deal?
Unreal01  +   796d 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.
morganfell  +   796d ago
"Timed exclusives confirmed."

If it's timed isn't that already...nevermind.
dedicatedtogamers  +   796d ago
Then shouldn't the title be "DiveKick and Cosmic Star Heroine announced for Xbox One" instead of the current flamebait title?
dirigiblebill  +   796d ago

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.
0ut1awed  +   796d 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.

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

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.

All games that aren't being 100% funded by one of the big 3 have a strong chance of jumping to more platforms
Wintersun616  +   796d 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.
Cueil  +   796d ago
Mass Effect started out being 100 percent MS funded
Ohohoho  +   796d ago
NYC_Gamer  +   796d 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.
#2.2.1 (Edited 796d ago ) | Agree(5) | Disagree(1) | Report
Ohohoho  +   796d 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?

"why would MS pay for only one game"

MS is pinching pennies.
moparful99  +   796d 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..
Cueil  +   796d ago
"It's on PC" ... yes on Windows... a Microsoft OS
Convas  +   796d 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-akaB  +   796d ago
Wow way to overhype the release of something like Divekick ...
FANTA1180  +   796d ago
divekick looks like complete trash ....
ground_beef  +   796d 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.
FANTA1180  +   796d ago
they need to make a sequel to limbo

that was a gem
ground_beef  +   796d ago
Yeah limbo was amazing, a sequel is a great idea.
SaffronCurse  +   796d ago
Limbo isn't worth 15.00
ground_beef  +   796d 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.

Veneno  +   796d 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-akaB  +   796d 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 ...
Veneno  +   796d 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-akaB  +   796d ago
Yeah sure , i was just nitpicking the whole "1000 men scene" part of the argument
jackanderson1985  +   796d ago
i'm glad this is happening, not that i'll likely get those indie titles, but for other ones that may eventually come to xbox one... then again i'll be getting a PS4 for infamous so i'll have the option either way but for those that are loyal to one brand it gives them a chance to help the indie scene out
xboned_you  +   796d ago
So wait with this new all Sony has left is what it announced for 1st party that are exclusives! No wonder they say PS4 has no games. At least Microsoft has AAA executives from 3rd parties! Lets see that list again

You uh... You should read the article. Deep Down is a 3rd party exclusive, by the way.
xboned_you  +   796d ago
Once again NO GAMES!! you call out Deep Down as a 3rd party exclusive I call out Titan Fall! There is no comparison! Which would u prefer?
asyouburn  +   796d ago
I personally prefer deep down.
WeAreLegion  +   796d ago
Deep Down. I'm definitely getting Titanfall for PC though.
Ohohoho  +   796d ago
They said the PS3 had no games... they were wrong.
Hicken  +   796d ago
You call out Titanfall.

Well, I'll call out Guilty Gear, and the next BlazBlue. I'll call out ArNosurge, and whatever Level 5 is working on(makers of Ni no Kuni). I call out whatever Quantic Dream's working on, and GUST, and NIS. I call out Dynasty Warriors, possibly including Gundam.

I think my third party exclusive list trumps yours.
IcicleTrepan  +   796d ago
guilty gear games, blazblue games and dynasty warrior games were available on both 360 and PS3.
ShoryuSwordsman  +   796d ago
yea, thats apparently not going to be the case anymore, hence why they were mentioned. guilty gear xrd has been announced for ps4 and ps3, no xbox announcement, and a good chance there wont be one since the new blazblue coming out in march is ps3 exclusive as well.
GirlOnFire  +   796d ago
Xbox fans love saying that TitanFall is awesome when you never played it.. I played it at Comic Con its boring after a few matches on PC. That's just me but I'm sure you will totally enjoy it.
hellzsupernova  +   796d ago
It is made for the dude bro fans the kind of people who buy xbone
IcicleTrepan  +   796d ago

If this is true, what's up with all the so called dudebros on PS4 playing COD:Ghosts?

Remember all those 360 people that you're grouping together and bashing with your comment? A lot of them own a PS4 this time. So you might as well bash yourself.
Ohohoho  +   796d ago
@hellzsupernova: Actually, this is made for the Dudebro fans.
YodaCracker  +   796d ago
That probably has something to do with the critical acclaim it receives every time it's shown.
ipconflict  +   796d ago
Here you go:

There are about 50 console exclusives, 15 Sony exclusives, 20 odd true exclusive games and 12 free to play games announced thus far.

But since Sony's strength lies with its first-party studies shouldn't their focus be there?
SoulSercher620  +   796d ago
Titanfall is on PC. Or are your fanboy glasses too thick to see that?
buynit  +   796d ago
Yes its on windows os, isnt it? So whats your point
SoulSercher620  +   795d ago

Oh you xbox fanboys. Always using that excuse to convince yourself that the Windows OS is a platform. Newflash it's not. Stop using that excuse.

Look why would third party developers not want to sell their games to more people? Pretty much they would have to be paid by a console maker to make a game exclusive . There are already few third party exclusives last gen.
Soldierone  +   796d ago
This is no surprise. Sony made it clear that they said "coming FIRST to PlayStation." EVERY single announcement for these indie games they said that, very few did they say were actually exclusive. This isn't MS, its Sony. They know what is exclusive and what was timed, and they don't pretend both mean exclusive.

Adolph Fitler  +   796d ago
I'm a PS gamer predominantly, & Divekick just never piqued my interest... It really looks like one of those games that provides a few hours of fun, but then, like a extra heavy drinking session, you instantly regret the fact it stole your money, & HDD space.

@Hakoom....Dude, there's a lot more games on PS that should remain exclusive....& the same applies to Xbox & Nintendo. God Of War, Halo, Mario, to mention 3 biggies. But, with a company like ND, they are like Insomniac, & if Sony doesn't treat them like the royalty they are for PS consoles, then like Insomniac did after Sony assisted Resistance 3 sales failures, then ND could easily jump ship & go multiplat or elsewhere exclusive. Hope not...but who knows, I never expected Insomniac would jump ship, like they did, as they have been Sony/PS exclusive since PS1.
ShoryuSwordsman  +   796d ago
but ND is OWNED by Sony. meaning ND is on Sony's payroll. Meaning there's no jumping ship to be had. except the people working there leaving ND altogether.
Godmars290  +   796d ago

i love indie games but divekick looks terrible. i'm not a graphics person too much, but it looks like those cheap advertisements that pop-up when you're surfing the net. i can appreciate good art style, throwbacks to 8-bit, and all that good stuff, but divekick just flat-out looks like lack of talent.
spoonard  +   796d ago
Divekick and another not-that-interesting indie game. How is that news?
Adolph Fitler  +   796d ago
@Shoryu...Oh, OK, I must have missed the memo that Sony had bought ND.. Not sure how I missed that bit of info, so your right in that aspect...But as you said, the developers can leave, just like whay happened with RARE when they left Nintendo for MS, half the staff left & opened Free Radical & they released THE BEST, MOST FUN console shooter off all time with the Timesplitters series, while Rare went down the sh1tter quality wise & released that turd PDZ.

So, I guess in reality it doesn't matter about a developers name & logo, it is the staff that make the sh!t hot games, & just like Zampella & co of former Actitivision fame, if you don't give the guys the props & rewards they deserve....they'll just bugger off in numbers & start up a new studio. The difference with Sony as opposed to Activision, MS is that Sony give a MASSIVE amount of creative freedom to there developers....I just really hope Sony try bringing back some of the 1st parties that money woes forced them to shutdown, teams like Zipper, Team Soho, London Studios, Cambridge Studios, Lightbox Interactive, 989 Studios, 989 Sports...I want to see the PS1 glory days return, where nobody could compete with the amount of 1st party developed quantity & quality of games, & 3rd party as well....That also includes the PS2 era to a degree, but PS1 just seemed to have more diversity, more innovation & just more of everything in general, whereas PS2 had already started to delve into the FPS heavy focus, due to Halo's success. Why can't we have games like Medievil, Primal, The Getaway, Wipeout, Twisted Metal, The Mark Of Kri, Crash Bandicoot, Jak & Daxter, Blasto, Destruction Derby, etc, etc, along with the usual boatloads of COD's & COD wannabe's? The sad part is, I just asked that question, knowing full well the answer, the even sadder part is the actual answer, being that only a minority of us will buy a game of Ico's quality & uniqueness over a new COD, Fifa or Madden, & saddest part is that console gamers have become gaming retards, only able to keep the attention span going for a soccer, football or me-too shooter storyline... Anything deeper than that, or that strays from those gameplay formulas has modern console gamers scratching there heads with stunned faces, tongues hanging from agape mouth, looking like primates in a zoo enclosure.
