Phil Harrison on Xbox One's upcoming Exclusives

OXM UK - From the earliest moments of its conception, Xbox has been an American console. It was invented in America, designed in America, and continues to enjoy its greatest successes in America. Its signature game, Halo, is about as Yankee-doodle as they come. But it's always had a strong UK showing thanks to Rare and Lionhead - internal studios that have flourished even while others like Ensemble, FASA and Aces were closed. Now, with ex-Sony man Phil Harrison in charge and a new console to support, more have joined the strength, and they've been charged with changing the way we play games. (Phil Harison, Xbox One)

Give me more 1st party games then I'll buy X1.
JasonKCK  +   699d ago
Why does it even matter? Are first party exclusives somehow magically better? An exclusive is an exclusive, doesn't matter who makes it or how.

Exclusives are starting to lose all meaning to me because they are talked up by company men so much.

Look, Im not going to be excited or sold on a game just because it's "exclusive", if it's a good game and ends up delivering then I'll get it.

If Electronic Arts is involved there are immediate red flags of quality issues.
Bigpappy  +   698d ago
@Abash: That was a PS3 fanboy argument last gen, because they had a few more exclusives. The fact is no one buys a game simply because it is exclusive. Only good exclusive sell. Some of the good ones don't even sell either actually.
Why o why  +   698d ago
Exclusives are HOT again.... who would of guessed they would be so revered after the past few years on n4g hearing the exact opposite. Irony aside, this is good news. It was always about exclusives and reasons to own a particular console over the other especially when many are only going to own 1 console for a large part of the gen. With ms currently technically behind on the multiplat battle they actually need to excel on the exclusives front to garner gamers they may not of attracted without them.

Ms are also sitting on a few dormant ips from crimson skies, panza to cameo and the likes. Ms cannot afford for all of those to sleep for a whole gen again.

Bigpappy.....a few more....lmao. lets all forget that many of the exclusives were game of the year contenders and winners. Pound for pound they were better if you compare them to the amount of multiplats. Fact is having the choice of great multies and great exclusives is better than less of either. Their sales shouldn't be the deciding factor on tneir importance or impact on the industry.

"An exclusive is an exclusive, *doesn't matter who makes it or how*."

Then its not an exclusive. Chances are that it wont benefit by exploiting the hardware its on and as ME and Bioshock, there's no actual guarantee that it will remain an exclusive.

Also, exclusive what? SP or MP?
JokesOnYou  +   698d ago
Nah, I like to have exclusives on my console but generally I just like ANY great game that's on my platform of choice. 1st party or not or "forever exclusive" or not really is just about fanboys waving their flags because as long as a game is exclusive to one console for a year or more then its basicly served its purpose. Seriously think about it, what is "exclusive" designed to do= from the platform manufacturer perspective its purpose is #1 Generate a profit from high sales, #2 Sell more consoles to gamers who are excited about the game itself so the decide to buy a console #3 Add excitement about the console overall= If its a great exclusive that all happens whether its 1st or 3rd party, whether its timed or "forever exclusive" and MOST IMPORTANT from the customer/gamer perspective= me/you we benefit by playing the game regardless of what happens years later.

I mean ps3 getting Bioshock so late is inconsequential because anyone at the time who's sold on Bioshock would get a 360, those who end up playing it on ps3 so late lets be honest are those who likely already owned a ps3 and don't want a 360, I mean almost nothing really is going to sway someone who hates/not interested/budget strapped into buyng a 360, it would be no different than MGS4 releasing years later on 360, unlikely any 360 fan who doesn't own a ps3 is holding out for it to come to 360, and IF they are I mean how much are they paying for it retail???, or worst used??? lol gamers realize that shipped has sailed and for any once exclusive arriving years later on another platform is just a minute plus but not really something you buy a console waiting for. I mean day and date exclusives and console features sell consoles, and make the lions share of profits, the old Gears of War games on a ps3 now would be great for ps3 only owners/late adopters who never owned either console and there would be a lot of fanboy talk but we all know that's not where the money is at, lol like my cousin buying his first console which is a refurb 360 for $60 and a few used games like Crackdown for $2 each fact is after the first couple years a timed exclusive has already benefited either platform as much as any "forever exclusive" could.

"What I'm passionate about is creating those brand new game experiences. The Holy Grail, the perfect alignment, is when you get a brand new IP, on a new platform, that causes people to rush out and go and buy your console. And that's the kind of the trinity that you want to aim for. And we will achieve that goal as often as we can - creating those brand new game experiences."

Phil Harrison-

That's all I wanted to hear. In fact at this point it seems like hes stressing or constantly reminding us that there will be new Ip's not just the ones we know this year but beyond, way beyond.

All last summer long in his interviews hes talked about new Ip's. I'm really excited to see what they bring in the upcoming years. But Phil and the Xbox team need to stick to there word.
Why o why  +   698d ago

Timed exclusives definitely serve their purpose but real exclusives serve a legacy. If gears goes multi it will have the same affect dmc and all the other ex- exclusives that went multi the following gen did. Titanfall will leave its mark whether its timed or not but it leaves less and benefits ms less IF in a years time its multi and somebody who is undecided at that point in time see's it on another platform.. Its past exclusivity means nothing to those next year.


Its good news ms are investing more heavily in new ip's. The rehash of the magnificent 4 was papering over the cracks. I'm glad a 360 supporter can say that. Problem with new ip's was that they are riskier than tried and tested ones. Not all of ms's attempts will be successful but I'm glad they will at least try. Just imagine if ms and Sony spat out a comparable amount of games and new ips...madness wallet rape if you've got both and more reason to get both if you haven't.

As of now, ms has more to prove in this regards especially if you look at their output over the past 3 years. Let's see what they can do.

Nothing wrong with liking the Xbox, just an issue of trying to defend it with inaccurate or made up facts. Accusing Sony or even Nintendo of doing something MS has done when they haven't.

I mean we've have the argument about XBL being better than PSN then PS+ with the Xbox fan camp repeatedly being unable to tell the difference between PSN and PS+. With many further unwilling to admit when PS+ improved in terms of value over time. They just crowed when Games for Gold was announced, continuing to defend as they five year titles many had already bought - and sold.
Skip_Bayless  +   698d ago
No he's right. If you own a X1 only then you're either just uninformed or your a core Xbox fan.
JokesOnYou  +   698d ago
@GreatandPowerful, I know my post was long but nothing about it says exclusives don't matter, actually they matter very much, where they come from and how long their exclusive not so much.

@Why o Why legacy is made and broken every gen, ps2 dominated the gen prior to ps3/360 yet the ps3 fought tooth n nail with a the xbox predecessor, hell ask anybody back then and the only question seemed to be how could micro compete, the original xbox had a short life cycle, the expectation for the 360 was the same, 360 was already experiencing RROD before ps3 launched, 3rd party support was supposedly going to be a major factor in favor of sony and of course their experience in gaming/studio's along with the "sony brand" was suppose to seal the deal, it didn't and nobody can say with a straight face right now that prior to ps3 release they thought it was going to end in basicly a virtual tie in market share....why because legacy is history and if gamers wanted to play history they'd buy a ps2, some once great studio's fell off, some once underated/not well known studio's have become very successful= things CHANGE. No doubt sonys reputation means alot but it's always about what you do now and in the future so, so many company's have found this out the hard way, especially in the gaming industry where beyond that 10% hardcore fanbase lies gamers who are very fickle= No brand loyalty, deliver the goods and they go all in until there's something better. XBL imo was a major factor in 360 favor and it used to the dominant choice for online, although I still think it's a bit better and more reliable sony has closed the gap, but also now charges= again things CHANGE, and micro is going to have to be aggressive to keep that status.

Also just as micro is rightfully criticized for lacking exclusive IP'S in Id say the last 2 years, why o Why was it OK for sony to take so long to deliver them when 360 started with great exclusives? I say it's a myth that ps3 had the best games year after year, I think UC2 a few others were amazing games mid gen and ps3 finished very strong with the TLOU, still given the overall my 360 served me well and now that Kinect only full motion controlled gaming focus has passed hopefully micro will keep listening and continue on their current path back to original xbox years of great new games and the early years of the 360 focus which focused on core gaming, so far that's what they are saying and doing, but I take nothing for granted, except that one day things will CHANGE.

Why o why  +   698d ago
Its not ok for gaps jokes, no... I wanted more quality launch exclusives...its not blasphemous for a ps fan to be critical and want more than whats being provided.

The slowdown this, sorry, last gen was when natal became real. The focus shifted to casual games with the promise of core kinect games pkus the same commitment to true core games. That never happened and the naysayers who predicted the shift were ultimately proven right...I mean even you've admitted 2 years... it was longer to those who owned a 360 as a secondary console as there would be no need to purchase multies on it to fill tge gaps so it was very apparent.

Now you're saying sony had a comparable gap in releasing games. What you saying, for 2 years there was nothing.. no heavenly sword, resistance, warhawk, wipeout.... Not only are you saying that but your kinda using the start of a gen drought as some kind of barometer against the end of a gen drought when all devs are very familiar with the hardwares. Cmon now. Ms dropped its support and over relied on 3rd party titles when both sony and nintendo were still releasing, not only new games but new ips in sonys case. What excuse did ms have from a gamers point of view...please let me know.

Credit where its due, the 360's headstart meant devs peaked a year quicker and the game that showed me, on any platform, next gen had truly arrived was the first gears of war..... heres the thing though. Ms rested on their laurels and spent more time and money making old games timed or multi than in creating. Sony was clear from the offset that 3rd party exclusives would be hard to hold so they created more 'legacy makers'. Ms may just of worked out that, that may be the best model to compete... create true exclusives that stay with the brand because all ive witnessed since ms announced any exclusive is the lauding of them and the yearning for the established exclusives to return.

Sony also had the most exclusive goty's...its by design not accident that they managed this.

Last gen was obvious. Microsoft had the lead for more than half of last gen's existence, while Sony were struggling just to catch up. Right at it's end is when we noticed the PS3's significant sells a bit over Xbox 360's when it was all too late. Microsoft didn't have the incentive to produce exclusive titles when they already achieved console dominance.

The drive of what made PS3's comeback were due to consistently great exclusives and blu ray. But Sony HAD to deliver on great console exclusives because it lacked in game sells for consoles. Nearly everyone in the US had Xbox 360's and why multiplatform games thrived on Xbox 360.

This time around is a whole different and unique situation in the gaming industry. We have two giants in the gaming industry releasing their console at the same time and going head to head. Microsoft will be forced to pump out great exclusive titles and have stated time and again that they are investing more into their first party studios.

We can argue Sony domination in first party development, but IMO I believe Microsoft will do a better job than Sony. They have the resources to lead the gaming industry down a better path for gaming and entertainment overall and it's early titles prove that.

What's surprising about Microsoft with their usual PR gimmicks is that it doesn't last as long. Just as any corporation PR gimmick. But Microsoft are really touting for Cloud Computing as being the defining factor for next gen and it seems they aren't joking. Time will tell.

Since when is Titanfall a exclusive? Cut the "MS exclusive" crap, you don't need to buy a Xbox One to enjoy this game. Sure, it's good for XB1 library as a whole, but as an exclusive, a selling point? There are way more people out there with Xbox 360 and gaming PCs than Xbox One (which is obvious, XB1 just released).

@Why o Why
"What you saying, for 2 years there was nothing.. no heavenly sword, resistance, warhawk, wipeout.... Not only are you saying that but your kinda using the start of a gen drought as some kind of barometer against the end of a gen"

No I'm not saying there was nothing just like in 360's drought there were some games since 2011 there was Gears3, Forza4, Witcher2, Forza Horizon, with the main highlight of course being Halo4, good-great games and not counting low budget games nobody cared about like Dark, or some great XBL titles, but the point is there should have been more core games and new IP's besides Kinect only games, which brings us back to why 3rd party games are so important, especially since there are plenty of them with games that are on par or better than a lot of exclusives.....also of course its a fair point to compare a beginning drought to an drought in the end, unless you are buying a console late in its life cycle it matters because a lack of games is a lack of game no matter when it happens and if you are the type that doesn't mind waiting for years before you purchase either console then exclusive game droughts are a non-topic anyway since there will be a back log of exclusives and multiplats to catch up on when you buy years later. -Which is why it always amazes me why some think 1 company deserves a pass, NO -I don't see either micro or sony to be above criticism, nor do I think either of them are evil, I just think they are human and have made mistakes when it comes to HOW they've handled their game lineup over the entire lifecycle of both platforms.

For the most part I agree with everything else you said.

Why exclusives?

Because exclusive games = games...
Games are those things gamers like, you know? @_@ Exclusives define a console. For gamers on a budget who can only afford 1 console, the one with the most appealing exclusives can sway an opinions.

Or correct me if i'm wrong, what should define a console? Apps? Which console has the most multi-plats? c'mon man...
ALLWRONG  +   698d ago
It's not MS's fault Sony is so broke they can't afford to pay 3rd party to make exclusive games and content.
thunderbear  +   698d ago
Exlusive games do matter because more often than not, putting all your effort into one single hardware specification allows you to maximize its potential; graphically, physics, AI, controls. Just like if a game was made exclusively for a PC with a 780GTX 3GB video ram, 8-16GB Ram, i7-3930k processor, it would open up doors for designers that aren't possible on any other platform. Problem is you can't design a game exclusively for a high end PC because you loose sales so it won't happen.

That's why when Sony/MS exclusive do happen, they will be better for gamers most of the time.

Sony is also known for being very developer friendly, and have arguably been as innovative if not more innovative than Nintendo (they are stuck in their kids phase games that are great but they don't branch out enough) by allowing developers to come up with Last of Us, Journey, Puppeteer, Little Big Planet and so on.

I want exclusive games because yes, they do allow good developers to design games that take full advantage of the given platform. 90% of gamers don't seem to realize that more power isn't just better graphics.

Why o why  +   698d ago
My good friend...Do you remember the cry against the ps3.... it went something like this......"No Games" and a faction sung it loud, vps even got involved but that makes zero sense from what you're saying because there was always the same 3rd party games to play at the beginning and the end so people could only ever be refering to exclusives. As you may or may not know, I jumped onto the 360 mid gen so I was waaaay more than happy with the backlog offerings... I hit the games I'd envied and admired and played the gems that weren't publicised as well as the magnificent 4 like the jrpgs and oneaways. All I was looking for was more output and variety come 2010 and beyond.

If I'm not a halo, gears, forza or fable or just tired of said titles, what was left to warrant my 360 plus live.... same thing happened with me for the last god of war...franchise burnout so I yearned for something different, something new. I just need more choice. Its like I like carbs, protein, veg, condiments...... just a greedy fcuk who believes variety truly is the spice of life. Just so you know I enjoyed the gears, kinda prefered the second one over the rest and even got into the halo...I got it earlier than most here on n4g and I didn't get banned so yeah I enjoyed it but I couldn't get into fable or forza so my pool was less than those who enjoy all.

Merry xmas anyhow

Plants vs zombies, I dont really see myself buying this one. I wasn't aware of D4 and below tbh. What has black tusk created? Forza 5 just came out. Crackdown fun game, ala DR3 but nohting special.

@ic3fir3 Well said. I got my Xbox One and it works great. Really impressed with how good the Kinect works and the voice recognition is nearly flawless once I got the commands down. But in reality the games are the main show.

I had a choice this gen on which console to get. I always eventually have all consoles and already have the WiiU. So I had to pick which of the two new consoles to get first.

Now I just had to decide on which console was going to provide me with the games that I wanted to play and in this area it is no contest. Your list says it all @ic3fir3.

I guess the PS4 is more of the same hype that the PS3 I bought was. Last time Sony screamed better hardware and better games. What they really meant was better hardware that plays like shit and better games that you need to wait for 4 years to get.

This time they are screaming we are all about the games. What f#@king games? Infamous and The Order are great looking games but a really poor showing for a console and company that is supposed to be all about games and have the best in first party exclusives.

At least their slogan, "Greatness Awaits" is semi accurate. I don't know about greatness but we sure as hell are waiting, again.

Sony's PR guys must take lessons from Apple. They seem to be able to sell the same BS and hype over and over again. Not fooling me Sony. I am not getting a PS4 until you actually bring the games not the hype.

The new Xbox fanboy tact is listing games they THINK are coming out in 2014, and neglecting to list the fact that PS4 not only has far more games than they bother acknowledging, but fail to share the fact that PS4 has more games in development and more unannounced games PERIOD.

Hey Jack... you missed DriveClub, Uncharted "4", Deep Down, Planetside 2, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, Rime, Lily Bergamo, Shadow of the Beast, Yakuza Ishin, MLB 14: The Show... and the rest: http://i.imgur.com/KVX6jb4....

That's okay though, I'll pin it on ignorance.

And as pyramidshead mentioned, several of Sony's studios (Japan Studio, Guerrilla, Santa Monica, Naughty Dog, Media Molecule) have multiple teams creating multiple projects - a tactic Microsoft doesn't seem to be sharing just yet. They also have a lot more second party ties with studios making games exclusively for PlayStation, and a good, keen eye for fostering independent talent. So let's not pretend that having "more studios" means they are creating more games. Sony has more experience in this field and more proven talent.

Most of the games that are listed for the PS4 are games the average hardcore game hasnt even heard of or arent even interesting. I've got to hand it to Sony, somehow doubling what Microsoft has yet Microsoft seems to be the one dominating the games. I'll take what Microsoft has over what Sony has anyday, even tho thats not a factor because I'm getting both systems.

MS is simply applying a different business model then Sony...

Was Gears of War any less exclusive on 360 then Resistance? Both were shooters... Both were AAA titles... Arguably Gears did much better though. And got better ratings.

It will be hard for me to hold out on an X1 once Halo releases. That series has grabbed on to me and it'll be hard for me to sit back and let it continue without playing.

Next to Mario, its probably the best system seller ever.

djplonker  +   698d ago
I had an original xbox and a 360 halo and fable are dead to me apart from halo 3 they get worse as they go on and alan wake was ok but absolutely nothing special!

The best game on the 360 was tales of vesperia and no one bought it so every tales game since has been on ps3 because it isnt just halo forza and cod that ps players like!

As pyramidshead said, you don't need an Xbone or a 360 to play Titanfall. If you're bringing in MS Windows into this, it's not required that you support Microsoft to play it either.

Additionally, Titanfall runs on Source engine. It's not graphically intensive, so any mid-range PC could run it, and I think most people out there with a PC have a mid-range one. If you want the definitive Titanfall experience, you need not consider Xbox at all.


@ u got owned

It depends what you consider to be the "best version". Mods, free updates, community and pricing might be that killer version for most PC gamers. It's still the best version regardless, and you still don't need to invest in Xbox to play it.

I have both consoles, I buy games that are interesting to me, and I could not care less whether or not its on PC. As far as I'm concerned, its a good thing. Preorders show that people are disproportionately buying the game for x1 anyways, so whatever! I was simply saying that the game is third party and will still be great. 1st party is just words. Whether or not a game delivers is up to the devs and publishers.

silly pointless arguing for the sake of arguing. Who are you to say where the best experience will be? Fr me, the beat experience will be on my couch, through my x1, with my x1 controller in hand, after I say "Xbox, go to Titanfall". Nothing you say can change that.

great job both phils you did great job of creating xb1 a pleace for gamers as it a great place for multimedia lovers it is a more better place for gaming witha great games and bring looking future ,sony always did a great job but these people made MS sudio devision a better for making games with 24 studios most of them opened when both phils joined the MS ,people must know that phil harision did agreat job of esteblishing SONY STUDIOS and now is doing great job of making studios ,when xb360 released MS STUDIOS were having 6 studios then MS realised they need more people for making games and then phil harrison joined MS after leaving sony and now both have been sucessful to make 24 studios where sony is having 14 studios and peiople they hired are talented ,tey are doing it right from 2008 when harisson joined MS ,first were 343,big park,MS oake,victoria,vencover ,black tusk and many more.
yeah all of them are to be proved but they are having talented teams and believe them and now for sure MS biggest problem of lack of exclusives will be solved and we can see it already and no body can deny it.also appreciatiung work of santa monke ,naughty dog,sucker punch and media molecuale ,did people know these all studios were esteblised when phil harrison was woking as sony studios president and did great job of making them strong and now making MS also strong.

I just want another gears of war for the xbox one, The only reason i would buy the console is for this game and the fact that my profile and friends have been on live for years. I already understand people want new IP's and i would buy them if they tickled my fancy but gears of war is my go to franchise not because i am loved up with EPIC games but because it is the game i like to play story/hoarde or multiplayer is unbeatable in my eyes.
Lukebb91  +   698d ago
Also xbox is designed to benefit americans an example gears of war 3 xbox weapon skin i believe you could buy a drink in america that came with a code for the skin everyone else had to wait a few weeks/month until they could actually buy it on live. Gears of war judgment jungle tai character code was free if you bought a certain brand of beef jerky in america, we had to wait for the game to be a flop and epic to release him as a paid dlc to make more of a profit.
halfblackcanadian  +   698d ago
Just to stir shit up; How many "on the Sony side" would believe every word out of Phil's mouth had he still been at Sony? For a while he was their guy. He didn't leave in a negative fashion, but I largely see people discounting what he says based on who he works for. Same guy people. I believe him if he says there's some interesting stuff coming up for Xbox. I'm pretty sure he said the same kinds of things leading up to LBP, and that turned out well.
rainslacker  +   698d ago
I never liked Phil much when he was with Sony either. He always seemed full of it.

He's better than some, I'll admit, but he still comes off as kind of a tool. He doesn't seem like a bad guy though, and for the most part stayed out of much of the X1 reveal debacle.

Generally though, when an executive says something like this, I look at the track record of the company. Phil may very well be interested and pushing for new innovative games, and lots of new 1st party IP's., but if the company he works for does not have that reputation, then it's hard to take seriously.

I'm sure MS will come out with some new stuff, they've even shown some of it. But whether they do that for the long term is the doubt that many have in their mind.

In this case, Sony has earned it's respect by always supporting it's systems well into the generation, and pushing for new exclusives and IP's, both with 1st and 3rd party.

X1 has stepped it up with the games, say as you wish but its true. X1 has some of the most intriguing titles coming soon, Quantum Break, Halo, Sunset Overdrive, Black Tusk, Remedy will probably bring another Alan Wake, TitanFall, Project Spark, GOW if they make it. Like i said say as you wish but X1 is gonna have some fanastic exclusive titles. Microsoft is putting in TONS of money into Black Tusk cant wait to see what they are working on.

Its weird seeing Phil rolling with the xbx crew. I remember him showing off the getaway and media molecules lil big planet on sonys stage at events.

One thing is for sure though.the guy has a good eye for talent, he helped sony get some really talented studios i.e london studio, media molecule ,evolution etc. I believe he is the reason ms opened up new studios in the uk and also the reason why rare and lionhead are now under better management with ken lobb and chris duncan.

Hope his presence brings the xbxone some unique exclusives.

Microsoft confirm 15x Exclusiv Games(see E3) for 2013/2014, Sony confirm 20x exclusiv Games(E3) for 2013/2014 (from WWS = so no Indies without SCE puplishing!).

PlayStation Plattform / PC-PlayStation Exclusivs:
Planetside2, DCuniverse, BLacklight, Warframe, WarThunder, YakuzaIshin, MLB14, TheWitness, DynastieWarriors8, Outlast, DayLight, STARBOUND, Octodad, FinalFantasy14, DontStarve, Flower, Flow, N++, ShadwoftheBeast and much more, here is a list:

Sorry guys but the XboxOne LineUp is a joke.

You basically just said an Indie game (resogun) is better than all the AAA titles on PS4 lmao.

WhaT would be the point of owning one console over another if there wasn't any " exclusive " games to set them apart? The argument of COD Ghosts or any other multiplatform games looking better on one system than another is an argument that goes back so long ago half the people that post on here weren't even born.

Compare the games that set Sony, MS and Nintendo apart from each other and stop bringing up PC games because that argument is pointless as well.

Teh "Exclusives"

Exclusives are important because they are the games that make the platforms stand out. Exclusives are made to push that platform and take advantage of all it's features.

The whole process the Devs are focused on one platform and don't have to worry about multiple platform codes so Exclusives tend to have better quality.

Sure some of the best games are multiplats, Skyrim, Mass Effect, AC4, FarCry3, Boishock Infinite, GTAV

But..... People will buy a XB1 for the Glory that is Halo (ewww yuck can't believe I used Glory and Halo in the same sentence lol)

People will buy a WiiU for the heart felt inspiration that is Legend of Zelda WiiU

People will buy a PS4 for Captivating games from Naughty Dog Studios

So yeh Exclusives are still important because they are the games that sell consoles.
Cid33  +   698d ago

H0RSE  +   698d ago
Exclusives mean little to me, regardless of platform. The vast majority of games my friends and I play, have always been multiplat. Yes, I have played or even looked forward to exclusive games, but it had nothing to do with their exclusivity. If a game is good, it's good, it being exclusive is more of a coincidence.

That being said, in the war against which platform has better exclusives, I will always chose PC. Not only do they have far more exclusives than either console, they also have much more exclsuivies I look forward to and play.

Also all u guys talk about games, if ms didnt enter the gaming world there wont be no online gaming period. psn ps+ will never be better then xboxlive so please stop playing . ms was doing online gaming on pc dreamcast and xbox sony is on its 4 console that finally got chat feathers . And at every stop that had an xbox playable walmart ect . no one touched the ps4 crowds were around ryse in jersey, new york , and philadlephia for Christmas . i dont know noone with a ps4 in those 3 states so i know like with the ps3 sony is reporting shipped numbers not sold.

I Really think games that have a lot of user generated content, will be big this time round. LBP set the bar, Minecraft, took the cake, and Project Spark could be epic, if its cross platform with PC and X1.

Also if Elite Dangerous where to come to consoles, it would take me away from re-hashed FPS for a very long time.

robleroy  +   698d ago
For all the fanboys out there:

YES the SONY platform has more potential en credibility (looking at ps3 and 360 quality and support)
YES the xbox one launch titles looked more attractive

But you need to ask yourself these questions?

Why did Sony blatantly postpone 2 major exclusive titles?
Would they be able to sell more consoles if they did not postpone the titles?
Would they sell more exclusive games at launch or would they sell more if for example the drive game was more optimised and also supported upcoming VR sony headsets. And there were a lot more ps4's sold (10 million instead of 2)

The bad news for SONY fans:

SONY is doing awesome at sales (demand is skyhigh)
They do not need release more exlusives to showoff the ps4 to increase the demand .

the 1080p/720p issue ,the price (incl
PSN/plus) and MS screwup issue was good enough to sell the ps4 without exclusive titles.

We just will have to wait till enough ps4's are in the market before sony will pull out the big guns.
SONY allways will be better at exclusives.
sony is about selling the best hardware for the best price to gamers concerning ps4.

MS has other plans concerning the xbone ..(all in one)
Why force selling the KINECT device if you could easliy create bundles??...NSA deal??...Why would MS want the DRM and no second hand games policy in the first place??? EA?...no!!!?? MS is not convincing me that they are about selling hardware to gamers..
imo MS is about making managers very rich (especially compared to sony managers) by selling poor services and poor quality products against high prices. BUT MS do need to step up their game. They are making it way to easy for SONY to have the front seat row. YES MS is doing their best right now (just look at the spending of commercials of Titanfall) I do hope TITANFALL will be a much bigger blast then anyone could expect, so in return SONY will have to wake up and hopefully also step up their game concerning their first party games launch dates...

BTW SONY did mention a sony VR headset which betters the oculus rift...

DAMN!!!! Why did the ps4 platform have to be this good !!!

Please MS !! DO BETTER!!!!!!!!

From an objective viewpoint, Sony's software lineup and overall software catalogue (both PS3 and PS4) is literally light-years ahead of microsoft. Look at the last 3.5yrs on PS3, and then compare that to xbox.... there is no comparison. It looks to be the same way this generation.

You have to hand it to Sony. They know games. Meanwhile you have microsoft talking about... "tv-tuners?" "kinect?" "DVR functionality and cable boxes?" ..Really?

Microsoft is struggling in the software department. TV isn't going to help, neither is kinect, neither is a more expensive box with horrible PR lol.
