I really hope console users get to experience day z, but it would be hard to have these encounters on the consoles though https://www.youtube.com/wat...
i prefer Rust, but i still got DayZ and played a lot, btw the game is barely at 20% so expect it to land on consoles in like...15years.
Yeah, its got a long way to go. Check out 7 days to Die too if you like rust.
Microsoft: Hey would like to port DayZ to Xbox? Developer: Yes I wanted to make it multiplatform someday. Microsoff: Forget multiplatform here have [considerable amount of cash]. Next day: "I have talked extensively with Microsoft!"
he will not be limited with policy with sony.
He knows that. I'm sure he's trying to barter a better deal from MS. I personally believe Sony would be more accommodating for his vision
Ms could fund the rest of the project and convince them to make it exclusive to PC and xbox one.
@ dead monkey That's a possibility, but I think that would be a real cop-out for Rocket. The project is ticking over the way he wants. I don't think he will open his doors to MS. If that was the case, they would be there already.
Deadmonkey is correct. This news kind of sounds like MS is going to buy Day exclusivity. He would be dumb to refuse them really.
I thought this was already in development for the PS4. It looks incredible. I love the openness of the world and the realistic landscape. Not to mention, the crazy random encounters like the one in the video posted above. LoL. Hopefully, we will hear something soon, as I would love to play it.
naw it's PC first and foremost with an afterthought for the consoles if they're willing
People are jackasses in this game and will screw you over constantly or maybe i've just had bad luck lol
constantly do yeah... worst bunch are those that camp at the spawn points with rifles and stuff... they should at least give u a chance to move before gunning you down
@jackanderson1985 That drives me crazy, even when they can see you have no gear to loot they gun you down.
Console gamers sure do love PC exclusives that they say PC gamers Dont have.
I'm disappointed with Dayz so far, it feels like stepping back 18 months so I hope Rocket will be doing less talking and mountain climbing and getting on with finishing this already late standalone. Too much missing so the group I play with have gone back to Dayz Epoch while we wait for Dayz to mature a little more
Yeah we moved on as well. And rust seems to be popular?
I see it coming to both next gen/current gen what ever people like to call it haha as last year there was a interview with Dean saying he had been in talks with Sony and now he is in talks with MS it will come but not until the pc version is completed so probably late 2015 early 2016
Lot of respect for Dean. Hes dealt with a very hostile community over the past year, but has put out a very impressive product so far. I reaaaaaaaallly hope it comes to consoles, but if it does, its probably going to change many parts of the game(but I would still buy it)
"I think if the role of Kinect/voice expands to where it is desired it could do some awesome things" Because MS bundled it with all xboxs they have given it every chance to reach its potential. Its great that developers are talking positively about it. I've seen some cool indie projects on it too. It really could add an extra dimension to this gen (but it does have to be improved slightly). Anyway, on topic. Nice to see a developer talk about bringing this to xbox. Don't know if I'd buy it, but choice is a fine thing
It's taken them several years to get to the point modders where when they announced the stand alone. Yeah they've added loot but at the cost of the zombies. They're kind of an important feature. Worry about getting the PC build up before you consider a console port please Dean.
I played dayz like a mad man on PC and I hope the game releases on both consoles but something is telling me that microshaft will try to make an exclusive deal with Dean... if that happens shame on you rocket, shame on you
Yes, shame on him for trying to make more money, yes, shame on him. Fanboys!!! * shakes head *
Read my comment again fail
Yeah. Really. Shame on him. Taking his game exclusive with MS for a lump sum fee is less money than releasing multiplatform and making more money over time and overall. It also alienates his fanbase and prevents it from creating new fans on a platform that has more customers. By the time it reaches PS4, nobody will care and gamers will be buying other games.
This one I might be jealous of if the PS4 didn't get it. :)
He definitely going to talk extensively with Sony He definitely going to talk extensively with MS To find his decision Next time on N4G (DBZ refernces)
I would not play this game on console, it won't be the same experience at all.
Yeah if it happen they gonna have to dumb it down
I want this game too! If this would be exclusive to PC and X1 it would sell lot of systems. That's why MS will want it. Let's hope it gets to all platforms after they get the PC version finished (PS4 along with PC and X1)
MS is actively seeking out games real gamers want to play. And this is why xbox one is the best platform to have. I once read from someone here that MS isnt talking to devs like sony is. And yet we get articles like this. go figure
Lol in what universe? Sorry but ms is dead for me since 2008 No variety in first party output, kinect focus and pretty much The only games were halo forza gears releases :/
No one understands that ps4 is better for having pc titles on it, for example: blacklight, warframe and warthunder, dean hall said before that ps4 is the betternchoice becuase on xbox 1 they will have to pay to update the game everytime but on ps4 u dont have to and he said ps4 is better for indie games aswell so it ideal, in my opinion he would get more money putting it on ps4 but we will seen what happens in the near future
