Xbox One lost a lot of its exclusive titles, and the reason for anyone to buy it

"Xbox One started slowly losing its exclusive titles, beginning with Dead Rising 3 and continuing with Ryse: Son of Rome. Those games, are two of the most important titles from the console’s current library, being the main reason why many people bought the console (including myself). Actually, “were” is the appropriate time since the two games are now announced for PC/Steam release. And while a lot of people were happy to hear this, it’s more of a sad day for Xbox One rather than a good one." (Dead Rising 3, Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

People are really calling a game which didn't sell well a "loss" now that its gone to PC or that its sequel may be fully multiplatform?
MightyNoX  +   549d ago
The loss comes not from losing THIS game but that it is the second game in such a short span that went multiplatform. Also, both games touted that they were 'only possible with the power of Xbox one'.

It's a wake up call for those who hate the install times, etc, that they do not have fork over $400+ if its exclusives arent really exclusive.

"that they do not have fork over $400+ if its exclusives arent really exclusive."

What you just said made no sense.

According to your logic people wasted 400+ dollars on a console with games that would eventually hit PC as well.

Right because Everyone is always waiting on the PC version. Millions and millions of PC gamers.

Titanfall is on PC but yet the game was most bought on X1.

So much for your conjectured logic.

Unless you can somehow get the PS4 to play the PC versions, they are still console exclusive. Dead Rising will probably go PS4 in the future too, typically Microsoft makes timed exclusive deals with their third party partners. If memory serves me, Dead Rising was available on the PS3. Anyway you look at it, PS4 owners haven't been able to play either game on their console which makes the last year pretty exclusive.
uptownsoul  +   549d ago
@AngelicIceDiamond -- Why did the PS4 beat the Xbox One in the NPD's for March? Didn't Titanfall sell better on the XBox One than Infamous sold on the PS4? Now imagine if the Xbox One was the only place on the planet you could play Titanfall…Xbox One would have been on top of the March NPD's, EASILY…Fact is not only is every Xbox One "exclusive" going to PC 1 less reason to buy and Xbox One, it also creates uncertainty on future Xbox One "exclusives" (Sunset Overdrive, Quantum Break)

At this point, count me in as one of those waiting for Quantum Break on PC.

And Titanfall being mostly purchased on Xbone is really quite understandable. Those console owners needed something new to play. The PC and 360 aren't short on games. Even my brother, who does 90% of his gaming on his GTX 770 almost bought TF for Xbone. His exact words were "I need something to play on my Xbox One".

It's really not going to affect Xbox One much. people who will buy these games on Steam would most likely never have bought an Xbox One or even a PS4 for that matter.

PC gamers are a different consumer, and although some PC gamers do own the odd last generation console, I don't think that most PC gamers see much of a benefit to buying an Xbox One or PS4 this time around. This is mainly because the vast majority of games get released on PC anyway, and usually at a cheaper price with better graphics options.

lmao titanfall is the worst example to use. the PC version is 50GB to download.50GB which would be fine if there was a good reason for it like super high quality HD textures or smething that made a difference. but no its 50GB cause the devs were lazy and did a pisspoor job on the audio iles and they are like 10x larger than needed. i know tons of ppl that would like to play it but arent going to go thru the time to make room on their hard drives for 1 single game like this when its just pointless. yes there are games that are near this size but they have a reason to be so huge, titanfall just doesnt.

DLConspiracy  +   548d ago
I can't wait to see the sales of the PC vs Xbox one. I bet xbox one still sells more of either game. People are silly. I love PC but until these games go into the bargain steam bin they won't be sought after. DR3 will probably sell better but Ryse just isn't the game to sell even if it looks better on PC.

Actually, it's not cancelled, but delayed. The main issue is that Crytek is not happy with Xbox One sales and will put off a sequel until they can expect to get a decent amount of sales. See this story for details.

"The main issue is that Crytek is not happy with Xbox One sales and will put off a sequel until they can expect to get a decent amount of sales."

I think it got delayed to buy them time to work around MS and release Ryse 2 on all 3 platforms(xb1, ps4, pc) from the get go, ensuring maximum potential sales.
Volkama  +   548d ago
They won't start work on a Ryse 2 unless they can fit it into a free to play model. And cinematic games are not a good fit, so if they do make it... Well it will be a very different kind if game.

More likely they will sell the IP at some point.

Or (if we're lucky) ditch the emphasis on free to play.

"Xbox One lost a lot of its exclusive titles, AND THE REASON FOR ANYONE TO BUY IT."

not really, the specs for dead rising 3 i think are absurd. and depending on the necessary specs to run Ryse to consider the upgrade, the XB1 version may be the simpler way to enjoy those games.

PC will always be master race and the games can be cheaper, but specs should also be taken into account as well. I say there's pros and cons, it's up to you.

Meanwhile Sonys second biggest exclusive franchise MGS is headed to Xbox. Where is are the Sony is gonna fail articles? How about sunset overdrive? That should've nvr even made it to x1, let alone as an exclusive... Everyone loses and gains exclusives. Ppl just wanna see x1 die so bad...
tiffac008  +   549d ago
If you mean Metal Gear Solid, that lost its exclusivity during the PS2/GC/Xbox era. MGS2 was on the Original Xbox and the series originally came out on a Ninty console.

The only MGS game that never made it to another platform was MGS4.
Notramagama  +   549d ago
And? It was hyped as a huge exclusive. It got a 10/10. You act like crytek is an MS exclusive company... It's literally no different, expect everyone w/o an x1 says ryse is shit and msg is widely acclaimed. If losing ryse is the death of x1, losing msg is costing Sony the first born son of every employee...

And where's you explanation for Sony missing out on an insomniac game.

One reviewed and sold well, while the other not so much.

And like tiffac said; MGS2 was already on the Xbox. When MGS4 came around Xbox fanboys went rabid over every rumor of a port. Oppositely, if Titanfall or Ryse come to the PS4, any added sales are going to be more a favor to Crytek and Respawn than anything to shut up Sony fanboys.

"Gamers" don't want to see XB1 die. What they want is for MS to stop messing up to the degrees they have. To actually show some interest in a market they only seem to have come into to make a profit. Put a box with their brand on it in every living room regardless of what's actually in it.
x_RadicalAura_x  +   549d ago
The difference is, Sony has a continuous pipeline of upcoming exclusives from all of their 1st party studios that THEY OWN (Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, Guerilla, Quantic Dream, Thatgamecompany, etc.). Whereas Microsoft basically threw some money at some privately own AAA studios to essentially get timed exclusives that can be taken elsewhere (e.g. PvZ Garden Warfare, Ryse 2, etc.) other than the Xbox platform. Most of the previously iconic 1st party Microsoft studios (Rare, Lionhead, etc.) have been on the decline for years. Kinect Sports Rivals, Rare? No thanks. Fable Legends looks passable to me as well up against DA: Inquisition, The Witcher 3, and inevitably Fallout 4. I won't have time for any other RPGs than those, they're my priority.

MGS Ground Zeroes on PS4 outsold the X1 version 3:1, so it might as well still be an exclusive. lol

MGS is as much an exclusive to PS as COD is to XBox!
Notramagama  +   548d ago
It's as much an exclusive as any crytek game is. And if you think ms isn't bringing exclusives you're blind as a bat. Phil spencer is all about content. Exclusive games and features are all Xbox 1 is about under him. Everyone gives Sony the go ahead because of their past and that leads to the same mistakes everytime. Companies get comfortable... You can't tell me Sonys exclusives are to their standard this fall. Good? Sure. Above average? No.

And like I've said msg is not a ps brand, but it was touted as a heavy exclusive hitter on ps3. I'll take MGS coming back as a wayyy bigger loss than a decent crytek game losing exclusivity. Just my opinion. But my opinion a backed up by respective sales. (And still no one mentioning how Sunset O was swooped by ms)

And sn: everyone knows msg wasn't originally Sony. But it's comical and hypocritical how someone brought up pvz being touted as anything but a timed exclusive lol. It's a mobile franchise ffs. Of course it'd become multiplat. If MS is fucking up there, what's Sony doing with no mans sky? Exclusives come and go and both companies are bring fire. I suggest no one really give excuses for their main console. I want them to keep improving faster. And ms is doing as well as any console has ever done putting their ship back on course, and yes they have more work to do still. But this article is complete nonsense.

All that Xbox has left right now is Forza in the AAA exclusives.
geddesmond  +   548d ago
I own a PS4 and will only own a PS4 this gen, just like I only owned a PS3 last gen but honestly the loss of 2 exclusives that barely make any sales on the Xbox1 is not a loss to MS. Yeah their sequels might come to PS4 but honestly box1 will still have exclusives the PS4 won't have.

I mean what do people expect. Publishers have always been about the money. It's what keeps them alive. Of course a publisher is going to look at the install base of a consol and take those facts into consideration when developing games.

We can spend 40 mil on this game and release it multiplat on next gen with a 13 mil install base or we can release this 40 mil game on a consol with a 5 mil install base.

If you were a business which one would you choose. After the ass wooping Sony has gave to MS no third party developer is going to make exclusives for MS unless they get paid very well and as that gap gets larger and larger because come on lets be honest it isn't getting small. More and more developers will not go MS eclusive.

MS only chance is to get their first party studios up. But nearly one year in already I think it's gonna be way too late for them to make any sort of ground.
GiantEnemyCrab  +   549d ago | Well said
MS just can't help themselves. I think they fear commitment. Years and years of the customers telling them to have true exclusives and they just keep going with the fake ones that come out better on another platform. Ryse looks to be another and it's not even been a year.

Then they wonder why no one has brand loyalty. They know you can play everything on something else. There is no specific reason to own an Xbox which should be the games you can't play any where else.

I understand MS has commitments to the PC but they are a big company who should be able to have exclusive titles for both.

DigitalRaptor  +   549d ago
Microsoft played out the "third party exclusive" stuff last-gen and they saw exactly how that worked out when PS3 came on the scene and took them, because let's be honest - there's no way a publisher is not going to support a more popular console.

YET… they did exactly the same thing this gen. Practically ALL of Xbone's exclusives are third-party from launch until now and were bound to go to PS4 and/or PC. They should be smart enough to know that this strategy doesn't hold favours for their brand, but they went ahead with it anyway. And now that the smoke has cleared, these publishers are seeing that they should have never signed these exclusivity contracts with MS to begin with and rode out as multiplats.

I think it's quite profound that you say they "fear commitment". They've proven to have pumped billions into this industry, yet they cannot hold onto exclusives to save their console. By save, of course I am being dramatic, but losing exclusives doesn't instil confidence and cannot imply anything but bad news for the Xbone, especially when they're being lost so early.

I agree with your assessment. There is too much shifting, and uncertainty to rely upon 3'rd party games as your meal ticket. I think Phil Spencer recognizes this, and is working towards first party, in house ip development. A wealth of first party studios with a diverse library, is paramount to a console manufacturers longevity.

MS usually has a pretty strong start with exclusives and great content but then you see hardly anything from them in the later years. Just look at the last two years of the 360.

That's very true. It's like their console begins to lose its identity little by little.

Thats also one of the reasons the main xbox founding father's all left microsoft, ozzy, robbie, ed..what good is it to create a game console biz, for your company if its not ever going to be a core part of your company!

Building the part of that section for your company to gain a revenue stream is one thing, but doing so to really build it to gain a viable brand name in "Gaming" where "Gamers can get into backing your companies business to be staying return customers is another and not just fair weather customers"

Question is has microsoft really shown interest in building the xbox platform as a core part of its company?

No, as a matter of fact the current CEO even stated as such.

The reason is simple. Both Nintendo and Sony are core Game companies, Nintendo has always been, and Now kaz has directed Sony as playstation is a core part of Sonys company.

Microsoft has not.
Sony and Nintendo = Game companies
Microsoft = not a game company

Asking Gamers to support a non game company over core Game Companies in the Game console market! Is it any wonder Microsoft's xbox brand has suffered perception on the game console market. Even when all 11+ Xbox platform founders who pitched xbox to be a platform in under 10 years have all left Microsoft.

The heart and Soul of the xbox as a platform left with them, is what many gamers has seen.

It's not about PC commitment for them exactly when it comes to most titles its about how much they are willing to pay for 3rd party exclusive rights. It costs a LOT more to keep it exclusive forever than it being a timed exclusive. Most just do a timed exclusive and hope that it being later on another conosle doesn't effect sales as it came out on there console first. In fact though games are so used to it now and thanks to being used to game delays etc.. Gamers don't care and are willing to wait for the game to come to there choice of console/pc.

These are third party games that still won't see a release on the PS4. Not everyone has a gaming rig or even a PC to play these games on, especially kids.

And there has been many articles that MS is working on a lot of 1st party exclusives. So to base your comment off of third party games that were seen and played on Xbox first is false as you can't play everything on Xbox has on PC.

I know a lot of Sony fanboys always pretend to have a gaming PC when a Xbox game is suddenly announced later on to be coming to PC. I find it hilarious that most complain PC gaming is to expensive until a Xbox game comes to PC. Then Alienware, super computers are suddenly in every household.

Windows typically comes pre-installed with the computer, man. You can also go Linux, but either way, they don't get a penny when you buy or play a game on Windows. They already got their one-time payment.

Unless Microsoft makes money from PC games, you are wrong.

They don't, so nope. Not a win for Microsoft, as much as it might hurt to find that out. Every game that was touted as Xbox exclusive and hyped by the fanbase for so long, only to go to PC not long after, doesn't inspire confidence in the platform or Microsoft's ability to hold down exclusives.

More importantly, it's simply not good for the Xbone to lose games that were considered system sellers and a significant part of its overall exclusive lineup. An Xbox exclusive game going to PC doesn't further validate the brand, it's helps to INvalidate it.

Yours is one of the most ridiculous, fanboy-biased arguments I've ever heard.

If someone buys a PC to play Microsoft exclusives, that helps MS just as it helps Sony when someone buys a PS4 to play Sony exclusives. MS gets money from every PC sale that includes Windows. Making MS exclusives available to more gamers VALIDATES the brand, and makes more money for MS.

It's absolutely delusional thinking to believe that MS gets NOTHING when someone buys a PC game with the "Requires Windows" logo on the box.

Microsoft exclusives may not help MS in the exact same way that Sony exclusives help Sony, but to imply that MS gets NOTHING from PC games is just wishful thinking and damage control lies.

I can see it being a problem for Microsoft, franchises like; Titanfall, Sunset Overdrive, Ryse and Dead Rising may get sequels on the PS4 however when reading up about the production of these games, it always seems like without Microsoft they wouldn't have got a first game at all.

It's not like they don't have any IPs at all; Halo, Gears, Forza, Crackdown and Fable are decent franchises. But once these third party franchises go Multiplatform, Microsoft will a bit of work of funding more games that could end up multiplatform in the future again.

Titanfall was never exclusive, it was said from the start that it would go to PC as well. PvZ is the same, it was only a timed exclusive.

Do you believe that putting "LOL" after something ridiculous lends it some credibility or were you trying to be funny…?

I am confuse.

XB1 hype?

You're talking about the "hype" that Microsoft are providing you from their PR handbooks, just like they did for E3? Look what happened when you and your buddies overhyped Phil's words. The only game I'm expecting great things from Microsoft at Gamescom is Quantum Break. That is one to watch.

As far as PS4 exclusives go…

Killzone: Shadow Fall - EXCLUSIVE.
InFamous: Second Son - EXCLUSIVE.
MLB 14: The Show - EXCLUSIVE.
Yakuza Ishin - EXCLUSIVE.
The Last of Us Remastered - EXCLUSIVE.
DriveClub - EXCLUSIVE.
LittleBigPlanet 3 - EXCLUSIVE.
InFamous: First Light - EXCLUSIVE.
The Order: 1886 - EXCLUSIVE.
Ratchet & Clank Redux - EXCLUSIVE.
Bloodborne - EXCLUSIVE.
Until Dawn - EXCLUSIVE.
MLB 15: The Show - EXCLUSIVE.
Shadow of the Beast - EXCLUSIVE.
Guilty Gear Xrd - EXCLUSIVE.
Without Memory - EXCLUSIVE.
Everybody's Gone to the Rapture - EXCLUSIVE.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End - EXCLUSIVE.

PS4 has more "exclusives" that aren't also on PC than Xbone, so stop spreading your vile insecurities about the PS4 as lies. They do not hold water, and never will. None of Sony's top tier exclusives are on PC. They are all exclusive to PlayStation and help the PlayStation brand. So as well as all those exclusives, the PS4 also have the old PC games to enhance the already unrivalled diversity.

Meanwhile on Xbone…

Ryse: Son of Rome - PC
Titanfall - PC
Dead Rising 3 - PC
Project Spark - PC
Ori and the Blind Forest - PC
Quantum Break - you can bet your bottom dollar this will be on PC a year or two after the Xbone version, especially after Alan Wake. ;)

After that, are you really confident about Microsoft keeping exclusives from leaving the platform they NEED more exclusives on? Don't count on any of that. These games going to PC do not help the Xbox brand, and calling out "Microsoft exclusive" doesn't work either cause they don't get money from PC games. This doesn't instil confidence in an exclusive lineup or Microsoft's ability to maintain them as such.

"Damage control" - what damage is there to control as far as PlayStation and gaming related press events go? Europe is Sony land and Gamescom is going to reflect absolutely that.

The only damage control going on here is from you and your lies.

Did you really list MLB The Show TWICE as a PS4 exclusive? Did the PS3 and Vita versions of those games recently disappear? ...waits for someone to call out "Sony exclusive" after telling others not to call out "Microsoft exclusive....

People who buy PC's to play Microsoft exclusives help MS just like people who buy PS4's to play Sony exclusives help Sony. MS makes money on every PC sold with windows. Claiming that MS gets nothing from PC games is absolutely ridiculous.

Not to mention you list only the Xbox games that are also on PC instead of listing the true exclusives like you did for PS4. That way the PS4 list looks better in your mind. Plus, you're just assuming Quantum Break will come to PC. I guess delusional fanboy guessing now qualifies as fact.

I can't believe you have the nerve to accuse anyone else of damage control and lies. You're even worse.

Someone sounds mad that most of the X1's exclusives that Xbox fanboys like to brag about, aren't even exclusive at all. There's less and less reason for anyone to buy an X1. The sales are reflecting this. The PS4 is still selling twice the amount of the X1, despite the $100 price drop. The X1 is literally competing with the WiiU.


Edit: Oh DAMN! I just saw Digital Raptor's comment. Haha, what an epic post. Feels good to know that when I buy exclusives for my PS4, they're gonna stay on my PS4.

Stay bitter, MPOG!

Exclusivity means nothing anymore...

What is important is new content and where you can play that new content first...

Sony themselves are selling up Destiny as driving console sales for PS4 this year. Why? The game ships on 3 other consoles as well... Well, that's because Destiny gets its DLC on PS4 first... Same with Battlefield Hardline...

Same with Dragon Age on Xbox One. And Evolve and Call of Duty... Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare and Peggle 2 as well.

Third parties don't do many full exclusives anymore. Instead they do deals for timed exclusivity and timed DLC.

As for Sony Studio exclusives this is all about where the revenue is. When Sony sells a game on PS Sony sees all the revenue. The console and the game... If they sold on Windows MS would see the revenue from the OS and Sony from the game.

Whereas MS sees all the revenue whether they ship games on PC (Game + Windows License) or XB1 (Game + Console)... So, that is why MS is fine with it...

People talk about exclusives. But what really matters is where you can play new content first. With Destiny Sony themselves are saying that.

It is just dumb-ass Sony fanboys that worry about exclusivity now... Because under their definition, Sony (by definition) will always win because Sony will never ship a Sony game on Windows and MS is more than willing to ship games on Windows.
ShadowWolf712  +   549d ago
Hi there. As I stated above, Windows doesn't get money every time someone buys a game that plays on their OS. The money for their OS was included in the computer's cost when purchased. The only way MS would get OS money is if someone upgraded their Windows, and since they don't make games exclusive to a single version of Windows... MS sees no gain from that.

Nor does it help the Xbox Division, which is the entire point of contention here.
NeoGamer232  +   549d ago
That is not true. Games drive some pc sales. Every time a gamer buys a gaming pc with windows MS benefits financially. Arguably even more than from a console sale.

That's why MS supports the pc gaming world.

Also, gaming pcs are typically higher margin and more profitable for the pc ecosystem. So not only does ms benefit, but the brands like alienware, msi, etc benefit as well.

And when people own pcs their pc comes with another profitable business MS has called MS office that is included in the price as well.

Bottom line. Games on windows add money to ms windows and ms office profits.

And it does help the xb division. Because as sataya said xb is not a core business but the xb division innovates windows by furthering their DirectX, ui, and motion control capabilities for windows. It may not be directly financial benefit but it does give the division credibility and reason in ms. Also, sataya talked about in the cloud/mobile world games are the number one selling apps. Again, adding credibility for the ms gaming division to exist.

But isn't there licensing for Games for Windows. I don't game on PC but I may be wrong, but I thought there were some licensing like for consoles. Not every game maybe, but maybe some?
PockyKing  +   549d ago
Good lord. Websites will do anything for hits nowadays. There's plenty of reason to buy an X1, PS4 or PC, even Wii U. Sorry, but this article is just ludicrous.

No (PC) = Personal Computer and there are more OS Pc's than just only a Microsoft Windows powered Based PC.
There is Linux, Sparc, Unix,Mac. Yes Mac is a PC!

So just because a game goes to PC does not mean only a Windows Based Os is only the PC that will be able to play such a game. As valve has the Steam Os thats a Linux Gamer OS that has access to steam powered games.

Microsoft isn't losing any exclusives... All pcs are powered by Microsoft. Only makes sense to release on both platforms
Predaking77  +   549d ago
They don't get any money from games being released in PC. If what you said is true, then there is no reason at all for Microsoft to be on a console business.

So nope, it doesn't make sense.

To be more logical here , any game that fails to meet Microsoft expectations (money wise) won't be persuaded by Microsoft , if Sunset Overdrive sells over 2m units , I expect Microsoft spending a fortune to secure a franchise , that also goes for Quantum Break. One of those examples are Alan Wake , released on the same day of RDR meaning it was hard to be successful , what happened next ? Microsoft sold the franchise to Remedy.

Well , you're clearly talking about another subject that isn't related to my post...
doolin_dalton  +   549d ago
"Sony would rather die than port TLOU to PC, that's why I support Sony"

So, more people having access to a game with a 94 rating would somehow be a BAD thing for you? Would porting it to PC make your PS4 copy worse? Would you enjoy it less knowing that PC games can also play it?
Sheikh Yerbouti  +   548d ago

No but there is value for MS being console only...! It drives console sales. Maybe not effetive for all games, but surely for Halo, TLOU and Uncharted.

Maybe the same with Titanfall, but who knows...? It was on 360 and PC, maybe why it didn't drive XBOne sales. Ryse never had a chance, so no biggie, but SSO may need to be XBOne only to be any lasting value to the XBOne brand.

Of course there will be XBOne exclusives still, but if I can buy them on PC, why should I get one, especially if the games are third party and likely to be on the PS4 anyway due to better console sales? We can cry about fanboys and BS doom and gloom, but it is a legit question if you are PC gamer!

I thought that the last few weeks had just been really scarce when it came to new gaining announcements but it turns out there's actual news about gaming on most other journalist sites.
for some reason N4G has just been collecting all the rehashed click bait "Bash Xbox One For Easy Hits" opinion piece garbage articles instead of being a decent aggregate news site.

i have no reason to pick it over a ps4, all ps4 games suck except for uncharted & lou & the campaign lasts a few hours, who would pay for a console to play nothing but indies? i only own a ps4 because all my friends have it because it was the cheapest at launch. if they were same price xbone wins for features & online, gears of war & halo.

@DigitalRaptor the list of games you posted... ALL SUCK except Uc & Lou aka ND titles, the only studio you fangirls have left and all their devs are already leaving.

And the One has what exactly? Halo? Ha, 343 are nothing compared to Bungie. Halo will never be as good as it once was. And destiny will destroy it in sales...and will run better on PS4.
Revengeance  +   549d ago
They sure did. But people are so butthurt they will deny this and spin it into a false positive. They will use phrases such as "Well it's still MS exclusive" or "It still plays through Windows which is owned by MS", as if to avoid the point.

The fact of the matter is it's no longer JUST on XB1 and there ARE PS4 gamers that also have access to gaming PCs. Yet not a single PS4 exclusive has hit PC or better yet a single PLAYSTATION exclusive has hit PC because they want games only on their console so it can sell. That's the meaning of having an exclusive, something MS has forgotten.

Dead Rising and Ryse went to PC a year after release on Xbone. That's it. MS published both and probably allowed this to happen to expand the audience and sales.

I own a PS4, but I still find it amusing how anyone thinks this is a 'loss'. Until now, games like Ryse and Dead Rising were disparaged as being terrible, but now that they are coming to other platforms, people are cheering and talking about how the X1 'lost' some of it's most 'important' titles.

Right when this game launched Sony fans called it junk and would never play it. Now that all of a sudden it's getting ported to the PC it's a huge loss? Kind of confusing. With everything in the pipeline:
Quantum Break
Halo 5
Halo Collection
Forza Horizon 2
Sunset Overdrive
Gears of War
New Rare IP (that isn't another Kinect focused game)

yeah... but OMG Ryse gets ported to PC and it's a HUGE loss. Crytech sells Homefront IP to try and keep the company in the black... But, wont part with Ryse IP? MS can buy it when they go bankrupt in a couple years...

Im sure XB1 games are great to XB1 fans. My excitement level is 0 however. Ill buy a XB1 just to make my friend jealous - doesn't meam I care to play it. I sold my PS4. I want better games, its as simple as that.

Tire of hearing about the Last of Us , The Order 1886 & Halo & Gears. Im 29
I need substance in my entertainment - teenager games don't do it for me.

Think of a plot with depth that reach out to you emotionally & that's interactive. Pow pow cut scene action - I want more. Do u understand?
chuckyj1  +   546d ago
I perfectly understand.. and surprisingly don't care. So because you're 29 you need to play much more sophisticated videogames? Okay have fun with that.

I am older than 29? When playing videogames I don't really care about age. Especially when I play with my younger daughters--Duh? do you Understand?
