"We're not currently talking about an Xbox One version of No Man's Sky, only that No Man's Sky will make its console debut on PS4."
It's timed exclusive, after few months from release date will be coming to Xbox ONE. Like Outlast.
I don't think it's guaranteed but it does seem like a likely possibility.
I bet money no man sky will come to xbox, after ps4 1 year of time exclusive...
I think it will be six month window of exclusivity.
I know some people will bring up the parity clause but the truth is that Microsoft will make an exception for this game especially after all the attention it received. @god I agree it will probably be exclusive for 6 months.
I'm still trying to figure out why so many xbox fans care. This is an indie game. As far as I have been told on many many occasions in many many different forums xbox fans don't buy consoles to play indie games. That's for the sony fans and their indiestation. As far as I have been told and have seen, microsoft fans really don't care for or want this game so I really don't see a problem with it remaining a ps4 exclusive.
If it comes to X1 at all, it will be a year unless MS steps in. The reason being is they are a very small team relegated to one platform at a time. After PS4 they will go after PC next. Then maybe you will see X1.
@johndoe11211 "I'm still trying to figure out why so many xbox fans care. This is an indie game." Its shaping up to be a great game...what do you care, what xbox owners like? And that is a great myth that PS fanboys keep spreading. I have 136 XBLA games at least 80 of those are indie games. So where does this crap about xbox owners not liking indies come from?
@GodGinrai Many Xbox One owners on this site argue that the PS4 has an abundance of indie titles and this is supposedly a negative thing - hence the term 'indiestation'. Obviously if they make such a point, the logical conclusion is that these particular owners don't like indies. Both of you are partially wrong though; him for suggesting all Xbox owners hate indies, and yourself for thinking just because you like indie titles means every other Xbox owner does as well.
@dodgemoose And at what point did I assume to speak for all Xbox owners? quote the part where I said that...Yet johndoe11211 paints ALL xbox owners with the same brush, based on his N4G interactions... EDIT:I would NEVER associate the average PS4 owner with the kind I encounter on N4G...for a start...they are likeable..
@GodGinrai Here is your quote: "I have 136 XBLA games at least 80 of those are indie games. So where does this crap about xbox owners not liking indies come from?"
@godginrai And if you could actually read you would have noticed that I said in many different forums hence not just n4g. If you are claiming to have never seen such comments made by xbox fanboys littered all over the Internet then you either have selective observance syndrome or are a passive liar.
@Liqvid That was in response to joedoes comment...No part of that says I speak for all xbox owners...I am speaking as one that DOES by indies on xbox. I have a right to counter his conjecture. @jhondoe "As far as I have been told and have seen, microsoft fans really don't care for or want this game" "I'm still trying to figure out why so many xbox fans care. This is an indie game. " Are you honestly going to tell me you are generalizing Xbox users with THOSE comments?
it usually takes a few months for games to come out to other console. But this is a team of 4 guys so im not expecting a port any team soon, cause the esram takes time to work with
It's actually ten now, but that's still not enough people to work on multiple platforms simultaneously.
Lol at the way devs word those questions. I think in the end devs just want to share there game with as many people as possible.
Such a short turnaround would be unlikely. The team has said they would like to develop for PC as well, but they probably lack the numbers to work on a Xbox port while developing for PS4 and PC. Six months is more likely, unless MS helps them out (which they should) and contracts allow it.
It's nothing like Outlast. Outlast was on PS4 first because of Sony's openness with indie devs, PlayStation Plus and Microsoft's own policies holding things back. No Man's Sky has been signed by Shahid Ahmad (as in contractually) as a console exclusive, with the developer really only mentioning PC as a console that they are super excited to support as well as PlayStation. This article is COMPLETELY redundant. It's just an Xbox guy repeating what we already know about the game. What matters though, is that this gorgeous, ground-breaking procedural adventure game will make its name on PS4 before anything else since Sony had the gall to pick it up promote and support the concept. It's a game about the joy of pure discovery, and looks like PS4 guys will be "discovering" things before anyone else. But I thought indies were "trash", so not worth talking about? Seems that they are worth talking about, when they "might" be coming to the Xbone.
The only ones who said indies are all trash were disgruntled Xbox fanboys. But plenty are coming around now that Microsoft is pushing some indie initiative, which is good because more exposure for indies means they can gain more success.
It will come to XB1, but I'm trying to understand what all the hype is with this game. It looked ok, but people are talking like its the second coming. I mean from what I saw you roam around and eventually have air combat. Looks good, but I haven't seen enough to see why this game is being hyped the way it is.
You know I'm about to light you up for your hypocrisy, right? Be right back. Update: And I'm back. Hey truefan1, maybe you are having a difficult time understanding the hype for this game, but remember when those programmers from Naughty Dog tried to explain to you why you shouldn't get too hyped for DX12 on XB1? Remember how you responded? "ND must be threatened to issue this statement, especially saying pure marketing hyperbole. He sounds like all of you, this must be pre June 2nd damage control. Also sony execs sure worry alot about what MSFT is doing, saying DX12 will do nothing and planning a reactionary E3. "This guy must be privileged to get access to DX12 this early lol. This damage control excites me, because if it was nothing the ICE TEAM wouldn't care." http://n4g.com/comments/red... So a game we've actually seen something of you're trying to understand the hype for, but DX12 which you've never seen on XB1 was something you went on the attack defending? Hmmm. You must be "threatened" to masquerade such "damage control" as a legit comment.
Truefan on hype for a PS4 exclusive: "It will come to XB1, but I'm trying to understand what all the hype is with this game. It looked ok, but people are talking like its the second coming." Truefan hyping XB1: "Maybe I'm missing something, but what was the point of your reply. At least there are some XB1 exclusives to actually play. I would say in 2014 xb1 has the better lineup of games as well. I can't say for certain, but quantum break looks fantastic, titanfall=gamechanger, Halo, project spark, sunset overdrive....Also isn't that spectacular game the Divison supposed to be more dynamic on XB1." http://n4g.com/comments/red...
" but I haven't seen enough to see why this game is being hyped the way it is." For me, it looks like the perfect game to just lay down and relax too and get immersed. I can understand why some people are saying they don't really see the point in it though, definitely. I know that abstract kinda games like these aren't for everyone. Exploring space in your personal ship, with seamless transitions to and from planet surfaces and procedurally generated space is just amazing to me, but then again, ive always been a huge Sci-Fi nerd, and i don't really mind if there isn't really a 'point' to the game. The art style is a big plus for me too. But different strokes for different folks i guess. It's reasons like this that im glad i own both consoles, i would have been livid if i only owned an X1 and found out it was exclusive to PS4 first.
Haha! Love the smack down generated by your delusions.
@truefan Is a type of person every one should ignor, not sure if truefan and georgenoob are the same person but at least georgenoob claim to own a ps3. Making him more open minded. Anyways truefan was one of the xboxers who claimed titanfall was a game changer and that it will result in system seller, even outselling the ps4 on its release. We all know what happened.
Truefan: Didn't you complain not that long ago about people going into xbone articles, and downplaying games? Yet, here you are.... In an article about a game that is likely going to only be on PC/PS4... Downplaying it because it's probably not coming out for xbone. I'm pretty sure that if it happens to be confirmed for xbone, we won't hear the end how awesome the game is from you. Stop being a hypocrite, it makes you look really foolish.
So, this article is all the XBox's indie divisions head talking about the game, and confirming that there are still no plans for it coming to X1. Microsoft employees shouldn't be trying to lead developers into decisions over public statements. They are just trying to get Hello Games attention, because they're being ignored by them. If it were a timed exclusive then Sony would have put "Coming first to PlayStation" like they always have. They put "exclusive console debut". Meaning it's a console exclusive, but will be on PC as well, like it's already confirmed to be. This is a misleading title. The title makes it sound like Hello Games said this could happen. But, the actual article talks about how it's still only coming for PS4 and PC like previously announced and that there are no plans for a X1 version.
@danzosama The developer clearly stated it would come to ps4 first, then they would like to do a pc version at some point, and wouldn't even mention the xbox by name. That is not a good sign. And when you're talking about small dev teams, things never move that quickly. Sony may have offered them assistance or may be moving to lock them in as a first party studio altogether, who knows? I don't, and neither do you. Maybe they appreciate the way Sony does business with them and will be another Quantic Dream or Ready at Dawn, who while not first parties only release games for Sony systems. Xbox only gamers better pray this isn't the case, but I feel Sony would be very wise to make it so. If this doesn't turn out to be the case, will Microsoft make an exception for the game to their foolish [email protected] policies that has already cost them with indie devs? And if they do it for this game, won't that affect them going forward with other indie devs who would not appreciate the rules being broken for one developer but not for them?
and wont do even half as good.
I don't know, there is a possibility for this game on Xbox One. Indies from another studios, not the exclusives studios, come to all platforms.
Joe Danger (the first game from them that also was at first exclusive to ps3) Took a year and a half to get to xbox 360...maybe the same will happen here. Come to think of it, I bet you Sony's support the first time is why they chose this route this time as well.
While the game will most likely come to the xbone, Joe Danger took so long because of the parity clause. They could put their original game on the 360 because of it. They had to add stuff to it so it could go over. Also, : http://www.edge-online.com/...
Wow! I knew they had been a pub fund dev, but I had always wondered how sony felt about losing exclusivity for funding it. When you treat devs well, good things happen in the future for you.
*They couldn't And yah, when you treat devs good, they'll be good to you as well. Not a real surprise (No Mans Sky timed) when you figured Sony helped them fund their first game and then said it was OK to bring it to the competition.
Console début is just that expect it on Xbox one a few months down the line with a directors cut.
Where in the article does it state that? In the article it says they're not talking about a Xbox version.
Where in the article does it say that they won't bring it to Xbox one a few months down the line, or a year or more later? It doesn't, everyone is just grasping hoping they get another "exclusive" instead of wanting everyone to get to enjoy the game.
they're not allowed to talk about it that's why they're not saying it. Respawn were saying the exact same things about Titanfall til Microsoft secured it as a "lifetime exclusive" (still doubt it) and Zampella later basically confirmed that they were working on a PS4 version No Man's Sky will be on Xbox One
@Stapleface So, the lack of talking about a XBox version makes you think they are going to make one? Okay. Hello Games has said only PS4 and PC. Sony said "exclusive console debut", which means console exclusive, as in only on their console, but also on PC. If it were a timed exclusive then they would have put "coming first to PlayStation" like they have before. @torchic Titanfall was always an exclusive when the public knew about it. They didn't even know that EA had gone behind their backs and took an exclusive deal with Microsoft until about the same time that we did, so they were planning on porting it to PS4 and had mentioned it before realizing that they were only working on Microsoft platforms for the title. Titanfall is an exclusive. Any spinoff or sequel is not and can go on any platforms they wish.
'with a directors cut.' Yea-h… Nope.
I fully expect for it to come to the xbone, but definitely not as soon as a few months. I'm thinking at least 1 year, maybe 2 considering the scope of the game and the fact they want to port it to the PC as well.
Whether it comes in a couple months or a year this is sad. I don't really get too hype for many indie games but this one blew my mind and now I probably won't get to play it for awhile. :(
You could always get a PS4. Then you wouldn't out on a whole bunch of exclusives and can enjoy better performing multiplats.
Obviously it's comin to Xbox One eventually. 6 months? A year? They would have said console exclusive otherwise their words are very specific. Outlast took awhile I'm sure it's a similar deal
Exclusives from 3rd parties are non existent in this generation. The only way for a game to remain exclusive is for manufactures to pay an insane amount of money like Microsoft did for Titan Fall, but even then it was also on PC and who's to say the sequel won't end up on PS4? What it all boils down to is some of these games are expensive to make and everyone is just trying to get paid. You can't really blame the developers and even Microsoft and Sony are just doing what they deem best to bring more customers to their consoles. While at the heart of it video games are meant to be a fun source of entertainment, there's also a business aspect that doesn't resonate too well with the gaming community and that's understandable too. The only games that are truly exclusive is what comes from 1st parties and even those aren't guaranteed to last forever. People have to accept the fact that as technology improves so does the development cost to create new and compelling games. You can almost tell if this were the 90's Destiny and MGS5 would be exclusive to PS4 and Titan Fall and Division would be exclusive to Xbox One. But times have changed.
I thought indies don't count as games so why care? /s
Anyone with a genuine joy for video games care about at least a few indie titles, I think.
I agree. Games should be considered despite if it comes from a big studio or an independent. More games is what we should welcome.
Hey at least you're not letting a few belligerent fanboys speak for an entire fanbas.... oh. Sorry, that's literally exactly what you did.
Relax you're taking my comment too serious. I literally only made fun of the people who claim indies don't matter. The "indiestation" guys. I put sarcasm for a reason.
Not talking about does not equal not making. They have an advertising deal with Sony, of course they aren't talking about it.
Considering how well Joe Danger did on ps3 vs the 360 port it isn't that hard to see why they would go for a deal with Sony first... Made their money back the first day on ps3. Look at the first week alone 50,000 ps3 to 8,300 on 360 copies sold. extremly conservative estimates put ps3 sales after 3 months 108,000 vs 360's 37,500 in 4 months. They know what they are doing. They know where their market on consoles is.
I think the main reason for Joe Danger's lack of support of support by Xbox fans, and this is from someone who bought it on xbox, was that there was a similar and superior product in Trials HD and Trials Evolution. This one is a bit different because we all know going in that this is a completely unique and astonishing gameplay experience that gamers universally seem to be clamoring for. My guess, 9 month difference.
Perhaps Sony offered better terms, more advanced tools, and maybe the install base was a factor as well.
Sony first, Xbox later.
Ha, misleading title.
Who cares, another shitty indie that wont be mossed,
This is why many people think Xbox fans hate indies. I'm sorry but I know many Xbox One owners who really want to play this game. And you know what? It's coming to the Xbox One. When it does plenty of Xbox fans will buy it and enjoy it. There's nothing that you can say or do that will prevent this game from coming to the Xbox One.
Writing off a game because it's not on my console would just make me a fanboy. It's a silly fanboy argument and a cheap way to dance around not being able to get the game on my console of choice. No Man's Sky looked brilliant even before I knew it was a Sony exclusive and even then I hope this is true and Xbox gamers get to experience it as well.
it may not. you have no idea right now. hello games it tiny. who knows what could happen.
Im sure Xbox fans won't "moss" it at all.
Is there any reason to buy a PS4?? Inferior controller with 8 hours battery life. Inferior online experience due to p2p connection. Only 3 exclusives right now in 2 years with a name: The Order, Uncharted and Bloodborne Come one, do Sony fans really have to wait 2 years after launch for some exclusive games? I dont count LBP since it looks like a PS3 game and DriveClub looks nice but racing games had never have much attention especially if a console cant reach 60 FPS.
When I read this comment, it automatically sounded like a voice-cracking tween in my head. How does that happen?
Common occurrence? I imagined this was in Francis' voice. :P https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Not playing with someone like you is reason enough to get a PS4 over an XB1.
Haha damn, now thats what I call a response. Bubble!
"BUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRRRR RRRNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!" sorry I love that show...
Regardless of reasons to get one, all the online retailers that i know of, don't ship video game consoles to under bridges.
"Only 3 exclusives right now in 2 years with a name: The Order, Uncharted and Bloodborne." ^?
