If the PS4 is stronger and easier to develop for, why would they *not* prefer it?
Hatsune-Miku  +   500d ago | Well said
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

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.

They're simply making their game better and more feature complete. The delay has nothing to do with PS4's hardware.

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.

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.

@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.
Copen  +   500d ago | Well said
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.

_FantasmA_  +   500d 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.
kickerz  +   500d 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.

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???

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.
morganfell  +   500d 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.

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.
morganfell  +   500d ago
The bad thing for 360 owners regarding Heavenly Sword is that it started out as a Microsoft exclusive.

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.

I think it matters what devs think of a system you own. Look at how much valve hated the PS3 and were very vocal about it. It took them years to be swayed to support it, and they weren't the only ones. PS3 fans suffered with no release of some third party games and horrible ports because of it.

I totally understand what your saying but this isnt like the issue valve had with the ps3 earlier on,where Gabe came out and openly stated his dislike for the system and where devs like cdprojekt made their games only on xbx 360. This aint like that. All these devs including vc and iw are developing on both platforms and they have never come out to state their dislike or unwillingless to develop for the xbox one...its insiders like thuway and pete that keep trying to make gamers think its all downhill for the xbx one..its obvious vc and iw will keep making games for the console and so will other devs (big and small)..it doesnt matter what console most of them like to play at home at thier spare time cos even phil and larry play ps4 too and as long as ms keeps working on the sdks and the games keep coming in there will be no issues..some devs might find coding for the esram a burden right now but it will definitly improve and even now some devs like cd projekt find it quite useful, you dont take the opinion of some individuals in certain studios and then generalise on behalf of the entire studios and thats the reason why i find this article uneccessary and fanboyish.

Haven't we stopped listening to retards like this guy, misterx, Cboat, etc....they are wrong 99 times out of 100..I'm right about insider stuff more often than that. That being said, even IF Infinity Ward is not a fan of XB1...who cares? Clearly they are a broken company right now. They took a tried and true game, tried to put it on next gen consoles, and failed to do a good job. On PS4 it has framerate issues, and on XB1 it has a lower resolution (and after a patch, now it has framerate issues on Stonehaven). I understand it was a launch title, but of the launch titles it was probably the least demanding one, and it failed the most. IF they said they aren't fans of XB1, that sounds more like a kid that isn't good at something..blaming the something he isn't good at for his short comings. I've long thought that IW needs to be taken off the COD rotation...their dreams were just crushed by a Titan.

Too bad this means nothing because MLG is with Microsoft and Cod on Xbox won't go anywhere not matter what IW prefers. It will never be an exclusive so why does this matter anyway? Money talks and we know that Microsoft will give whatever cod developer it is all the money they need to do whatever it is that they want.

Also I would put money on Xbox overall selling more than the PS4 for atleast another year with the X1 and 360 combined
