Yep let the COD developers decide the fate of Xbone!

Abash1495d ago

If the PS4 is stronger and easier to develop for, why would they *not* prefer it?

Hatsune-Miku1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

Ps4 is the best console in history so they'll prefer it to the inferior xbox one.

The ps4 is over 50% more powerful than xbox one so they're able to make their games perform better and look better

tuglu_pati1495d ago

Can we stop giving this guy (Thuway) so much importance...

JP13691495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )


I'm so glad you're constantly on here continuing your unpaid PR campaign, so that I never have to hear you being a megaphone for nonsense on PSN. I agree that the PS4 is great, which is why I spend a good part of my free time playing it, rather than practicing fanboy rhetoric on N4G.

That's right. It's pretty obvious that developers prefer it.

otherZinc1494d ago


Since the PS4 is so easy to develop for, where's Drive Club?

ShinMaster1494d ago (Edited 1494d ago )


lol weak argument, dude. Driveclub devs never stated that they had any problems with the PS4 at all. Where'd you pull that out of?
They're simply making their game better and more feature complete. The delay has nothing to do with PS4's hardware.

Gekko you a bigot or racist.......who decides to buy products based on country and not quality.....SMH sad consumers indeed

@Gekk..something stupid!

What about Chinese then? Do you refuse to buy that also? And German is good? Do let us know.

solidt121494d ago

The thing I can't understand is why the Xbone graphics look so much worst than the PS4 if they use the same chip and amount of memory. I know the PS4 has faster memory but I didn't think we would be seeing this big of a difference. the MGS V GZ video Hideo put out was a big eye opener. The XBone is looking mor like Wii U Graphics which is a shame since it has so much more power than a Wii U. I just don't get it.

Sorry but those COD developers, who are a shadow of the previous outhouse that comprised the greatness that now is Respawn, are in no position to decide the fate of the Xbox.

hello121495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

They don't want to be labelled second best on the x box platform behind Titanfall. Its fairly obvious what there up to. They want to become the leading shooter on PS4 to match up against Titanfall.

They also hate the fact Vince Zapella is doing well with Titanfall. Activision and him fought a court case and by all accounts it was bitter feud.

Kingthrash3601495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

respawn didnt want a tf contract with ms to begin with it was ea...activision has to be second best on the same console regardless if respawn has anything to do with it i'm sure ea will follow the money and go multiplat with most its games too.
it's just business, follow the money.

nicksetzer11495d ago

@kingtrash except you are 100% wrong, respawn stated on multiple occasions it chose xb1 due to their willingness to provide needed assetts. (such as cloud compute) As for the first title NEVER coming to PS4 well that is a seperate discussion, but your insinuation they were forced to work with MS is a farce, much less to say they had no say in the matter.

Copen1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

Yes greatness in all its 792p glory and sub 60 fps and 6v6 with ignorant AI bot cannon fodder. Screen tearing,lag,fluxuating frames per second that drop into the teens at times.I could go on but my point has been made Respawn has NOT delivered as the hype suggested it would just because you have blinders on doesn't mean all the bad things don't exist. Respawn rushed a game out that was neither optimized or ready for the masses so you really look uneducated putting Respawn up on this throne it hasnt earned and doesn't deserve.

Kingthrash3601495d ago

thats what i ment, mabad bad wording.

Septic1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )


I look uneducated? I actually play games instead of babbling on about resolution. They delivered a brilliant game. When has the new Infinity Ward done that?? Name me one decent game that they made after MW2.

I dont have my blinders on because I know that I, along with countless others are enjoying Titanfall. You carry on hating from your sofa as the rest us actually play games. Go put your tinfoil hat on and tell me that the reviews for the game were bought by Microsoft.

scott1821495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )


Please no more cloud compute... Please. It never proved to be anything special for games, it is hyped up PR bullcrap for MS to get business for their servers. It has been done in games before Azure and will be done on servers other than Azure in the future for tiny things.

T21495d ago

and yet COD will probably outsell titanfall 2:1.... so tell me how they are not an important studio for any platform regardless of how much some of us are beginning to tire of COD

_FantasmA_1494d ago

LOL if I were one of COD developers, I wouldn't worry about Titanfall. Sure the Doritos Dudes will buy it, but COD has been declining on its own. COD shouldn't be worried about being the biggest seller. They should just worry about innovating their game and I think now that they will be more PS4 focused, they can start to make the game look and perform better. But who knows, maybe they've gotten lazy and used to not really having to do anything. But I still wouldnt worry about Titanfail. Its just COD with robots and won't sell like COD because its on less platforms, is online only, and doesn't push the shooter genre forward.

kickerz1494d ago

@ scot . Cloud compute may just be dedicated servers but hell I'm playing Titanfall in Australia on the new Microsoft Sydney servers @40ms ping which is amazing . Never had a online game with such good connection here. Awesome game with awesome connection. Couldn't be happier.

thehitman13981494d ago

Lol @"a shadow of the previous outhouse that comprised the greatness that now is respawn".

So a 6v6 only, 792 output, really bad AI, bland graphics, and no sp campaign or co-op game that can't even handle 60 fps on your new next gen system is greatness???

Seriously dude get a reality check. Oh n before you away that you like 6v6 only, well they code very well have put more people into the game and let us, the gamers, decide how big of a match. They could do that if they are the greatness that you speak of, right???

Alexious1494d ago

Maybe, but it's not like they are the only ones with this tendency.

It's widespread, and for good reason.

im sorry but only now that MS has titan fall and COD is a former shadow of what it used to be is the time they speak up about MS....... PUHLEAZE

"Yep let the COD developers decide the fate of Xbone!"

Oh, the irony!

webeblazing1495d ago

So preferring a console mean you Dont like the other? I know this logic runs rampant on n4g but I doubt that's what they meant

LexHazard791494d ago

So what exactly happens to MS with COD now leading on PS? You guys make it seem as tho COD is going PS4 exclusive! COD will still sell well enough on Xbox platforms! Also even if COD was crap on Xbox who cares theres plenty of other games besides COD! Dont get me wrong I like COD but its not a game I play everyday all day like others!

IcicleTrepan1494d ago

I doubt any company would ever say 'I am not a fan of system x', as a multiplat company you have to be a lot more diplomatic than that. One does not simply crap all over a console and then release a game for it.

... Gamers not fans of Infinity Ward

360ICE1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

That's... not entirely accurate.

Anyway, how can Thuway confirm anything? This article is even labeled (correctly) as a rumour!

Anyone ever heard the phrase/antithesis "rumors confirm that..."?

DeadlyFire1495d ago

Well the old Infinity ward was awesome. Activision stepped on them for MW2 then most left and the new guys made MW3 and Ghosts. They are not said to be the best of Call of Duty at all.

nicksetzer11495d ago

Funny not only are we back to trusting thuway after multiple lies in a row,but now he is a source so accurate his words aren't even rumor ... how does this crap keep passing?

nukeitall1495d ago Show
AtomicGerbil1495d ago

Some believe, some don't. The important thing is that we discuss it because one way or another it could affect both consoles.

@nukeitall........grow up!

LexHazard791494d ago (Edited 1494d ago )


I will agree that people with the most bubbles are Sonybots. Disagree all you want, but before you do, when your commenting on an article just observe the people with most bubbles and see for yourself that most are anti xbox!

aragon1494d ago

Anything bad against xbone is true, have fun guys greatness awaits in the form of high resolution lol Imma get a wiiu this is getting pathetic and I definitely think this website is biased just by the stupid crap that gets approved and what the mods actually moderate which is bad Sony news.

jebabcock1494d ago

When a majority of gamers purchase ps4s expect most sites to have a majority pro ps4 comments... it isn't rocket science. Quit complaining.

Now that the ps4 has a bigger install base than the xbox one developers want to go for it. Money hungry hypocrites. I know it's all about the money but most of last Gen some developers gave the middle finger to the ps3 community. As a consumer we suffered from it. At times I just wished Sony gave them the middle finger just for payback but like I said at the end of the day it's just business.

morganfell1495d ago (Edited 1495d ago )

I agree, it is business. However, a lot of 360 owners are moving to the PS4, a great many of us PS3 supporters took a beating from these nose thumbing studios and publishers with several instances of unnecessary shunning of the PS Base.. An apology and some comeuppance at a minimum are in order.

2cents1494d ago

It happened on both sides to some extent but it was definitely skewed towards the 360 being the lead platform. Even so, the ps3 always had the prettier games from the exclusives. I remember first playing heavenly sword and thinking OMG, and that was very early in the ps3 catalogue. From then on games just got prettier and prettier on playstation.
The 360 had its exclusives but they never beat the ps3 in the graphics department in like for like games. So all the xbox really had was that the multi-plats often looked better on the 360 but not by much.

Roll on this new gen and Sony will dominate the multis for the foreseeable future and have stunning exclusives. Xbox will have compatible but slightly gimped multis and stunning exclusives. So its almost a complete swap.

I just hope that the temperature drops in the fanboy wars and that people move on from this very boring way of 'enjoying' this new generation.

morganfell1494d ago

The bad thing for 360 owners regarding Heavenly Sword is that it started out as a Microsoft exclusive.

2cents1494d ago


now that, I didn't know.

Ill never forget the last battle in Heavenly Sword, one of the greatest experience I have had in gaming.

morganfell1494d ago

Yeah the multistage fight with Bohan was incredible. My favorite moment is here. She knew she was damning herself but as she said, did she ever really have a choice. You can see the horror on everyone's face as they cannot believe what she has done:

Maybe with the movie coming Sony will announce a new game:

2cents1494d ago

Right, that's it. You've done it, lol

Now I have to play through it again :)

LexHazard791494d ago

I liked Heavenly Sword but lets face it Xbox community didnt miss out on much! And if it was so great why wasnt another one made?!

morganfell1494d ago

Well bakpain attacking all Sony titles, did you ever see a great game that didn't get a sequel. If you haven't then you have been living under a rock.

Why am I bothering with you anyway. You never played the game and have no idea of the greatness in that title.

LexHazard791494d ago

Ok and now its MS consumers who will suffer so im pretty sure your excited about that!

Alexious1494d ago

PS3 was actually harder to develop for, so it made sense for developers to be more wary of it.

PS4, however, is both powerful and easy to develop for. There's no reasno not to like it.

Wth does that even mean?

Ontopic : "Thuway: Infinity Ward & Visual Concepts Not Fans of Xbox One"

Is this a studio thing or an individual thing?

Another one of them thuway and pete articles.. some of the developers like to play on ps4 so does that mean they all dont like the xbx one or will stop developing for it? I guess not.

These pete and thuway guys imo have too much time on their hands cos any info is automatically news worthy to them also how does he even know what all the staff of IW and VC like to play? Do they bring their consoles to work to play? Or do they all hold round sessions discussing their preferred console of choice with thuway?...Is he friends with them all?.. weird.

Festano1495d ago

Ps4 is a great console and easy to program, now beginning to be a lot to say.
