Hello Games's procedurally generated space exploration game No Man Sky has yet to be announced for a console. Microsoft's [email protected] program director Chris Charla would very much like this to stop being the case, pretty please.
So this game is probably going to be multi-plat, which is a good thing. However, Sony has already gotten into contact with the dev, so it remains to be seen.
for such a small studio I hope this ambitious game goes multi so we as gamers can all enjoy, and this four man team get the kudos they deserve
It being a small man team makes it releasing on multiple console (simultaneously at least) unlikely.
It would behoove them to put it on as many systems as they financially can and with PC and Xbox One sharing so much both physicly and software wise that's probably not a bad starting point and porting it over to PS4 shouldn't be an issue and eventually other platforms should be in the books asap
Where Sony go, Microsoft follow. 2013 has been defined by this. I wish Microsoft could get their mojo back and lead rather then this constant me-too behaviour. :(
I hope they do not get there mojo back either, even though why that would bother me, I do not know. I have a million other things in life more important.
Do you really think they want this game because they saw that Sony wanted it?
their previous games went to all platforms so it wouldn't surprise me to see this do the same.
Hoping this comes to PS4, if not I'll get on PC.
Awesome news....hope chris charla is able to get the game over.
This is not "news"... the actual quote is: "I would be super-psyched IF they want to bring that game to Xbox," It is an MS employee just saying he would like it to be on XB1. The article also says that the guy wants Hello Games to "get in touch"... The title is completely misleading and should not have been approved the way it is phrased.
"I would be super-psyched IF they want to bring that game to Xbox," And i said i "hope" chris charla is able to bring it over. I see nothing wrong with my statement... there is a posibility and im hoping. Chris has stated his interest .most likely the guy sees this and they get talking.
Love how as soon as the MS guy opened his mouth to try to compliment and talk about the INDIE game, he immediately started tooting their own horn and evangelizing Kinect and smartglass. Jesus, can you just praise a game for a moment without talking about yourself? It's like they're brainwashed.
When bringing a game to your console, why wouldn't you want to talk about the features of your console? The face tracking and voice commands for this game could be excellent. Like being able to track your head movement in BF4 to look out the cockpit, same thing could happen here.
i dont know but it is getting realy strange,sorry to say but lot of times i have got your bubble down ,because month are may be some week's back when i use to read your comments they use to be fanboy tipe like most of these stupid yo mama and majin vajeta etc. but i dont know you have changed or not but now your comment's looks nuetral it may be wether you were having lot of hate for ms becasue you were unhappy with their policies but now you've changed ,now a day your comment have realy like gamer and i realy like it ,its good to see people are forgeting their hate and are playing games not companies ,i hope every buddy here disscuss as a gamer they have to be and leave working as a pr for the companies ,i'am realy sick of this fanboy wars .a bubble up and agree for you and it is realy bad to see this stupid yo mama is still writing shit and people are agrreing him.
Joe danger was first released on the PS3 so most likely this will go first to the PS4 and some months later to the X1.
Due to the Xbox Ones parity clause that isn't possible. It will have to come out on all platforms at the same time. P.S This is with games for their id indie program.
Unless Sony has an exclusivity deal with HelloGames.. There's a clause in that parity agreenent for this scenario and Sony has gone on record courting this developer...
Well noone gives a s**t about that parity clause if they don't want to release on Xbox. It's the developers choice and I'm sure they have a plan already.
Don't forget the [email protected] clause that states that a developer HAS to release on xbox before or at the same time as other plats. So, in order to bring it to xbox they have to delay their game on pc (basically any platform other than xbox) or move solely to xbox. Just a friendly reminder.
yeah you are right ,if devs want to be the part of the policy and are benifited from it.then nothing is wrong in it and it is all up to devs to support this policy or not and we all know it is not the devs priority to release the game on ps4 first,what they want is to deliver their game on all platforms.
first it is an multiplat and an indie so its not gona come on the same date on ps4 as it come on xb1 and if devs want to be the part of the m$ policy about indies so it gona come on xb1 first ,i'am not a fanboy and like this game to land on all platforms on day 1 ,but it is not possible ,according to this policy games will land on xb1 first but now your question will be why on xb1 first? this is because m$ provide devs tolls and help for the indie devs and what they require is only just to release it on xb1 first and then you can work on ps4 and nitendo or what ever with M$ provided tools and one thing is obvious this game is gona land on ps4 first or xb1 first because indie devs can release all versions on same day they dont have the resources.
Whoop! Can't wait to play this on the PS4 - good on Shahid for working with them!
It'll be a simultaneous release for consoles, most likely release first on PC then onto the consoles later.
Can't release first on pc and then come to xbox. Just saying: http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... Some gamers on n4g didn't get that until now, I bet.
So the link you posted pretty much contradicts your comment. It quite clearly says they don't require exclusivity or timed exclusivity all they ask for is at least parity on CONSOLE release dates and will work case by case for games that have come out on other platforms first. So yeah it could come to PC first no problem.
As Skywalker said. Unless a dev can't physically make them release at the same time they just want to make sure they aren't doing a "timed exclusivity" thing with the releases.
"all they ask for is at least parity on CONSOLE release dates and will work case by case for games that have come out on other platforms first." What is funny is that I picked a relatively neutral article to explain the problem - my bad. I'm not sure why you think that this is a good thing. The way I read it is that they will make exceptions for studios on other platforms prior [email protected] being written (aka, not the studios who do it in the future). Making exceptions to their own rules just suggests a discontinuity in thinking, anyway, especially later on in time. Just re read the second to last paragraph, or did you not make it that far before responding to me? It's a punishing clause to those who have already committed... Oh. But m$ can make an exception if they deem the game worthy. What about developers that only have the budget for only one platform at a time? What about the games now that [email protected] has been implemented? Pc should almost always be the first choice (especially right now with each console only having <3 million on the market), except this rule strong arms people into thinking xbox to be their first choice. Look, I'm not saying that everything else is bad, in fact the unity and dev kit thing it'd great... But that one clause shows true intent.
First they hit devs with the indie holocaust last gen (with all the clauses and no self publishing). Now, after fully intending to stuff Indies in concentration camps again, they've had a change of heart and their indie support is the best? Its always "our stuff is the best" b4 they even prove themselves... For example: Bing
And let's not forget about some of the the fans.... "Haha all you have is stupid Indies Sony" Now "Yay [email protected]"
Hypocrites, i tell you!
Yea I remember Sony fans never counting any of the games on 360's indie channel and saying they were all crap and would rather have AAA exclusives as they name dropped Uncharted in the same breath. Now you Sony fanboys are all "YaaaaY we love Indies" Let's not forget that either.
Xbox been doing indies for yrs. The ps camp was all about the AAA games. NOW it's all about indies? Y'all make me sick
You Sony loyalist just jump in and become experts on everything M$ without having a clue about the topic. Let me just leave you with this: M$ is the sole creator of indies on console. They are the ones who provided an entry to the console world for indie, who ended up flocking to Xbox. M$ had to play this cautiously as not to upset big publishers and to try to get indies to not just flood the system with junk (which they still did anyway). Now Sony decides to get in the game by offering a more liberal policies to try and lower some over to PS4, you guys try to paint M$ as anti indie. I wish you had a clue what you were talking about. You stand out because you are using sensational terms (indie holocaust), but they are other just as ignorant as you. So yeah that kind of crap plays well here.
"Try to paint Ms as anti indie" That statement proves your ignorance... Why were most indie dev complaining about MS indie policies? They even went as far as to reveal the unfair treatment they got when releasing games on Xbox. Please tell me I made that up. Your inbox will ve full of links articles proving that point. So you're saying indie devs that made all this news public has no clue. Because thats where I get it from. And what exactly do you know? Youre an insider with the key to behind the scenes info. Id say you have no clue about the situation buddy
Sony had their simple series of games in Japan for indie companies to produce games on the PS1 way back when. Sega had a similar program with their dreamcast in Japan. Indie devs have been around for a very long time. MS isn't the sole creator of indies on console. They were just first to provide an open channel for indies to publish their wares on console. That was a model pioneered by several companies on PC, most notably Steam, and later expanded on by other devices by Apple and Google. MS took a working model and put it on consoles. That's a good thing. However, their initial indie policies with the X1 weren't keeping up with the times. It failed to address the rather drastic changes that occurred in the indie scene over the course of last gen, with the last 3-4 years being particularly drastic due to indies becoming more mainstream. The [email protected] seems more like a reaction to the negative criticisms it received over those policies, and not because of any forward thinking on how to be pioneers on bringing indies to the console more. The changes are a good thing for indies though, and in the long run, it will benefit MS, the indies, and the players more because of it. MS isn't ignoring indie devs. They showed a few at E3 I believe. Ones that likely wouldn't have made an E3 because they look simple. Sony did the same thing with 6 devs on stage. I applaud both for doing so. But, there is an apparent drastic difference in the way that MS feels about getting indies on their console, and the way that Sony feels about getting indies on their console.
Wow another article that gets under peoples skin,please please now that both consoles are released can we move on from all the bs and concentrate on gaming.
Sony should just add them as another 1st party studio. If I was a small indie team of 4 & Sony asked if my team wanted to be a part of their 1st party teams, id be so honored just thinking of working with all the great crews like Naughty Dog, Sony Santa Monica, Media Molecule, Sucker Punch, Guerilla Games etc. etc. Plus Sony would give them way more freedom then microsoft to get creative which is what indie devs do best anyways. Win/Win situation.
Hmm i told u this can turn the tide of the console wars, but i forgoten to say that Sony might of contacted them as well so. Obivously No man Sky is coming to PS4 too
Umm , Sony already did contact them, hell even before this Was posted, sony already talked to the dev's about bringing this game to the ps4. The higher ups already talked to get this game Sony reached out. We already had a post about this game, and Sony was really excited about this game.
While PS4 still barely has anything to show, just speculatory insinuations. "We've got some good stuff, Wooh!" Where?
Couldn't agree more. If this game is as good and fresh as it looks it could be a console mover. Imagine that. An indie game that sells consoles! Could be big for Sony.
Oh man I love this site. Even news as small as this gets hated on by the community. I was always under the impression this game was a multiplat but when I came here everyone was acting like the guy announced it exclusively for play station. When sonys guy gets excited for this game everyone is happy when xbox guy is excited people have their pitch forks ready. So typical
given the devs limited funds and microsoft's terms to get a game on xbox, i see it skipping the platform
Why would limited funds make them skip the Xbox One? Both architecture's are nearly identical. Smart coders like these guys have already more than likely created an engine that is easy for them to port to anything setting the game up for a simultaneous release.
Not worried. This game will end up on xb1. Until then, there will still be plenty to play next year on xb1. It has the games that gamers actually want to play.
Why can't it be on both ? Surely it means more money for them and a better sequel ?
I hope there will be a Wii U or Steam Machine version. If it goes on those I'd by it in a heart beat. otherwise I'd probably get it for PC
