Will a Timed Exclusive Make You Purchase an Xbox One?

Microsoft dealt a huge blow to Sony, taking away rights to release Rise of the Tomb Raider in 2015. But more important than that is the blow dealt to actual gamers who don’t currently own an Xbox One. True, there are plenty of great games slated for 2015 holiday release, but could this Microsoft tactic actually turn into substantially units moving off the shelves? While the release of SquareEnix’s Tomb Raider may not have hit the numbers the company had hoped for, critics and players alike generally loved the game for it’s fresh take on the franchise.But did they love it enough to purchase a new console in order to play the sequel in 2015? (gamescom, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Xbox One)

I plan on buying a X1 but came away less enthusiastic from the briefing. TR doesn't matter for me because I did not like the most recent TR. Sunset OD, the more I see it the less interesting it is. Quantam Break, looks like spectacle but questionable gameplay.

I like the Sunset OD white X1 bundle though.

@dudebro:

They're not timed because Sony paid for them, they're timed because indie dev studios are small and can only work on one platform at a time. One reason a lot of indies are going to choose Sony is because the installbase is twice as big, meaning they can make bigger immediate returns before they start working on the other versions.

Sony's also helping them with publicity since lots of indies go unnoticed but Sony's putting them front stage and this is very desirable for small teams that can't afford to advertise their games themselves, so another reason to go to Sony first.

There's also a lot of games that are made by indie devs but are being fully funded by Sony and some are even being co-developed by Sony's studios, namely Sony Santa Monica which has helped tons of studios make games.

@Askanson:

I realize they're a business, but so are Nintendo, I don't see them moneyhatting anyone. Even Bayonetta 2, which is 3rd party isn't moneyhatted, it wouldn't have been made without Nintendo's help since it wasn't getting any funding and Nintendo stepped in to fund it. MS did the same thing for Titanfall, Dead Rising 3, and Sunset Overdrive and it's a good thing since in the end, the games were made. There's consumer friendly ways to run a business and obviously there's non-consumer friendly ways of running a business. One company tried to screw everyone last year, one company didn't, but they're both companies.

And I didn't say Sony doesn't pay for exclusive things, but what Sony pays for tends to be content and not entire games. MS was the one to start the exclusive content stuff last-gen and if Sony didn't follow, then MS would have had an advantage that Sony didn't have. If we want exclusive content in games to end, then both have to stop. It'll actually be better for everyone (except the devs who want the money), including themselves since they don't have to pay for exclusive content and we don't get gimped games, but having this happen is tough since they both believe that the other side is gonna keep buying exclusive content.

The games Sony do pay for are games that need help, either with funding or with manpower and Sony can provide both as well as a platform with lots of users. Without Sony, tons of indie games wouldn't have been made.

Hello Games' game before No Man's Sky was Joe Danger, and they wouldn't have made it without Sony helping them since nobody else would, same with plenty of other games.

Crystal Dynamics should have the manpower and funding to work on more than just the Xbox One for Tomb Raider, but MS paid to keep it off of other platforms for a while. People were even able to preorder the game on other systems prior to it being announced as an "exclusive". That's different from funding a game so it'll be made since TR was already going to be made for other platforms and probably already is being made for other platforms as we speak, they just have to wait to release those versions. It helps nobody and it brings no new games to the table, it just limits what platforms a game initially releases on.

Edit: I believe the only moneyhatted game from Sony was Haze which was supposed to go to other platforms but became exclusive. That was 6 years ago. There might be more but that's the only one that comes to mind. Everything else is either funded by Sony so it'll be made in the first place or devs just don't want to bother with other consoles, like plenty of Japanese games which don't go to Xbox consoles for obvious reasons.

@ Dudebro90

Why, you ask?

They're all creative new IPs from smaller studios that Sony employees believe in, and the developers involved also believe strongly in the platform they are focusing their resources on.

That is REALLY how you procure good relationships and get developers to want to work on your console.

And from these deals comes direct support in a first party sense, not just "having that on your system cause you don't have enough big exclusives of your own".

Plus... Sony doesn't have a stupid parity clause, and it's the console with the largest install base by millions. If these devs can agree to only work on one platform, because of the size of their team, it's going to be PS4.

Shouldn't be at all surprising.

"Then why does Sony spend so much time getting timed indie exclusives? " The fact is they dont.
People really think Sony pay for indies?? Sony for all there changes still have a little bit of big headedness about them and wont pay for games outside there 1st parties. They may do the dlc content bit but that's about it as that gets enough sales to make up for initial outlay.

The reason devs come to Sony first is they can only afford one console at a time as there indie devs and don't have big publishers behind them to do multi-platform releases. So they choose Sony as its easier and better for them in most cases especialyl as a lot of them have been burn't in the past by MS on the 360 with stuff like charging for every patch (FEZ still broke on 360 as dev refuses to pay for patch and spent all his 360 profits on patches so made no money).

edonus  +   67d ago
Well.... first thing wrong is it is not timed exclusive. There is no version of it being developed for any other platform currently or plans. After a certain point of time it "could" be reviewed and a version made.
Calling it timed right now sends a very misleading message. But this is just the media coddling the sony fan base.

If it is time exclusive when is it coming out for other consoles? Don't know do ya.... because as of right now.... it is not.

Now you can spin.

No... he never said "timed exclusive" he said exclusivity with the title has a duration. He also said its like what they did with Ryse and DR3. Meaning they may have a chance of putting it on PC but who cares about it going to PC?

Fact is there is no guarantee that the game will be made for the Ps4 or PC. Anything else is just wishful thinking. At this time calling it a time exclusive would be a lie. Saying it "could" come out on other platforms would be more accurate. But currently exclusive is the right term.

If it were a permanent exclusive they would outright say it. Look at Titanfall for example they went out of their way to say it is exclusive.

For Tomb Raider they all just say holiday 2015 or skirt around the answer. Spencer said for a duration as well. If that was also misinterpted he would have corrected it by now.

"He also said its like what they did with Ryse and DR3. Meaning they may have a chance of putting it on PC but who cares about it going to PC?"

These games got a third party publishers to publish their games on PC. Maybe he was saying SE will be publishing the games themselves on PC and PS4.

I think u guys are missing the point..he is correct he is not saying the game is an exclusive forever....he saying right now it would be an exclusive until it is actually announced for other platforms

Phil spencer simply said that there is a duration on the contract before CD is allowed to release the game on any other platform outside of the ones named in the contract

Most ppl automatically assume the game will come to ps4 because of the amount of money CD would loose out on if they do not release it on ps4 and they are right

No thinking it is an exclusive forever is make believe. Because even MS said it wasn't . MS is not publishing this game SE is. And you don't here them talk about other platforms that it is coming to or when, because the MS deal most likely says they can't. In less than 6 months after it release you will see it announced for or out on PS4.
Although the deal could have a sales clause that can make it stay exclusive like it has to sell 3.5 mil. Or something just speculation really.

"Phil Spencer compared the deal to Ryse and DR3 tho"

1. He compares them but definitely DOES NOT say they are the same deal. (Some fanboys are seriously reaching when they pull this lol).

2. Phil also said MS had absolutely no control whatsoever after the duration ends as to where Square Enix wants to put the game. Phil Spencer - "Yes, the deal has a duration. I didn't buy it. I don't know where else Tomb Raider goes." <--- Seriously don't know how it could get any clearer than that. LMFAO!!!! XD

3. Microsft published BOTH Ryse and Dead Rising 3. Square Enix is publishing ROTTR.

4. Since Square is publishing the game and Phil himself said they have no control where they want to put the game after the duration ends. Why on Earth would Square miss out the console whose last game outsold the Xbone version by more than 2:1. XD

5. PS4 is massively curbstomping the Xbone into the ground and is on track to selling over double while still widening the gap. Why on Earth would Square want to miss out on that market share in general. XD

No one game should make you get ANY console (though I did buy a PS3 for Metal gear, but played all the exclusives).

If you get an X1 it should be for ALL the amazing exclusives, same as the PS4. And for those that say the X1 has no great exclusives. Delete your account, shut off your computer, and throw it off your roof, because you bring nothing to the table.

"Will a Timed Exclusive Make You Purchase an Xbox One?"

I don't think so. But if you were leaning towards that platform for some time on other reasons, then it may be one more reason. Also, timed exclusives don't always land on a 6 month waiting period, some games have taken much longer.

Most people don't have such a ridicules overreaction like you. In fact most don't care. You should buy an X1 not for one game, but for all the amazing exclusives. And a controller you don't have to plug in every other play session.

No I know you don't like the exclusives MS is coming out with cause their junk. And only Sony knows how to release good games. I hope you feel that way so you and those like you NEVER get to play the awesome X1 exclusives.

@ThePope

Fewer than many may assume, but look at the anger. 12.5K signatures on the petition to get it multiplat(5000 in less than 8 hours). 8500 mostly angry comments of people swearing off CD and some SE and MS on the tombraider blog...and still counting, it was trending negatively on twitter for a couple days, and it made the rounds on some facebook pages. It also got the attention of some popular youtube hosts, and has been the most talked about subject so far from Gamescon(again, mostly negative).

So no, I don't think the number of people turned off from the Xbox brand is minuscule. I also don't think it's massive. But it's enough where this move by MS backfired on them. Between the DRM fiasco and this(and only God can imagine what's next), people are starting to see MS in a new light, and it's not a flattering light. Funny thing is, this is how MS has always been, but no one listened when people said it when they first stepped into the console market.

Who would? It makes no sense to choose a console due to timed exclusivity, if you're already aware that it's timed.

OK, ok, maybe I would *for the right game*.

I'm one of those crazy Demon's / Dark Souls obsessed people (my favorite games of last gen, easily, and right up there with Symphony of the Night in my top 5 all-time games), and if Bloodborne was coming to Xbox One, even if it was a known timed exclusive, I'd probably buy an Xone to play it without waiting the six months or a year or whatever for a PS4 port, because I love the game that much I need to play it ASAP. But Tomb Raider? Somehow I don't think that's the kind of experience that would give anyone that kind of rabid need to play it ASAP.

I don't even understand why they made it available for Xbox 360 but not the PC. The purpose of the exclusivity is to hurt Sony but they took the game away from PC owners also.
rainslacker  +   67d ago
So Sony fans wouldn't just say, "Whatever, I'll just play it on PC", like they did with TitanFall.

Keeping it on the 360 and X1, makes it a true console exclusive(for now), whereas the definition of what exclusive meant was debated for TitanFall.

Honestly though, MS would have been better off getting it full X1 exclusive instead, as if it's cross-gen, it isn't a big thing to upgrade for...particularly since the last one looked and played pretty good on last gen, and the definitive edition didn't improve on that a whole lot to make the difference worth a $400 console.

OTOH, by fall 2015, MS will likely have dropped the 360 off into the abyss when it comes to support.

Gamer1982  +   66d ago
They took away from PC because that was part of the deal. Its all about how you value the market and what you think will get you sales. PC is a big player in the market these days and although people look at PC sales of games and think differn't they don't realise sites like VGchartz etc only get retail copies sales not digital and 90% of PC gamers buy digital nowadays. So PC copies sell just as well as MS found out with titanfall and PC version hurting sales.

Putting on 360 makes no sense though as I feel they don't knwo there own identity. On one hand they want those 360 sales to keep going so they release it on the 360 like with titanfall but on the other they must realise its partly the reason its falling so far behind the ps4 who are doing true next generation exclusives, I mean we didn't see the new infamous on ps3 etc.. That's what's holding MS back and until they let the 360 leash go and do some xbox one ONLY exclusives not 360 they will never start to claw up the sales ladder.

I suspect the disagrees are because its kinda off topic, they arent asking whether you love tomb raider they are asking whether you would buy a console for just one exclusive game, I can imagine if you said "yes because I love the TR franchise" or "no, even tho I love the TR franchise" you would have gotten a different amount of likes.

No seeing as I had a Xbox One but not anymore. And I don't really mind waiting for Rise of Time Raider DE to hit PC/PS4 in early 2016 (Hopefully I have a gaming PC by then). Tomb Raider isn't a must have at all. And if I do buy another console to go next to my PS4 it is most likely going to be a WiiU.

Not likely. I'm still waiting for that Uncharted/TLOU quality generation defining title before I purchase a X1. Hope they pony up one soon.

I have both but I am the type of person that like to play the game exactly when is out.....so yes!

Never.

It is the same tactics MS used in X360 generation, and look what happened towards the end of that generation. X360 became all about Forza, Call of Doody, Halo and Madden - Nothing else.

Not really

I've always played Tomb Raider on the PS and I will continue to do so.

It's the controller to be honest like GTA, Resident Evil and Final Fantasy for example...it just doesn't feel right on other consoles.

I know what you mean about the controllers, I recently tried playing the PC version of FF7 and I just couldnt get used to it, it felt strange enough just because my PC is at a desk and on a monitor but using the keyboard took it over the edge and I just played my original one on the ps1 instead lol.

If had not bought a console yet it could but I have so no.

System seller ? NO. But looks like a good game
Zenith4k  +   67d ago
Defiantly not I stick to what I got, never had a ps3 and was an Xbox gamer but E3 2013 changed that for me I became a sony believer and microfarad policies and price pushed me away, but not only did I not buy a ps3 got the last of us ( though it is no time exclusive!!) I would not buy a Xbox got a timed exclusive and by the time it comes to ps4 I'll have a finished game with better everythin

Periods........please.

It's releasing in holiday 2015. There is gonna be so many better games on PS4, X1 and WiiU out by then or about to come out that I bet this is barely gonna be on anyone's radar by then.

Always look at the big picture. No point in buying a console just to play it a little sooner
Software_Lover  +   67d ago
It's not always about console sales. These manufacturers do make money off of software also, whether its exclusive or not.
Imalwaysright  +   67d ago
No Quantum Break and Scalebound will. Multiplatform games will be played on my PC.
elda  +   67d ago
LOL!...really?...hell to the no!
lemoncake  +   67d ago
Among the less hardcore fans it will sway some people, especially over a holiday season as it is the time of giving and there will be those parents and grandparents etc making the purchases that could easily be swayed by a big name exclusive at time of purchase. Marketing is a powerful tool also, any fanboy is testimony to that.

Bought one a long time ago for Forza 5. Awesome system, highly recommended.
Prince-Ali  +   67d ago
WHY are people even stressed about TR at this time! lool.. it will be going DIRECTLY against Uncharted 4! and we KNOW how that match up is going to go lool!!!
CramShaft  +   67d ago
Because it has nothing to do with Uncharted 4 and everything to do with a multiplat game that has been on the playstation platform for ages being taken away from a large fan base.
darthmaul  +   66d ago
Sure Uncharted will destroy Tomb Raider, but I think Tomb Raider will be worth playing. I hate the fact that its a timed exclusive even though I will have a Xbox One by then. I think some good games are coming out for the One..Sunset Overdrive, Halo, Quantum Break. So I think the games justify owning both systems...
