Now that Microsoft has secured timed exclusivity for the new Tomb Raider, one wonders: If Sony was so inclined, which franchise should THEY grab?
For realistic shooter platformers? Uncharted 4. :P For third party exclusives I think we have plenty of indie stuff. Dreamfall is now a Playstation exclusive and No Man's Sky is still console exclusive on PS4. Plus many third party games will still perform better on PS4 than XB1 unless developer choose to create console parity.
should be noted Dreamfall is also coming to PC also has No Man's Sky officially been ruled out for the X1 yet?
Sorry! Should have said console exclusive for both. So far I've heard no announcements for No Man's Sky on Xbox One but I think that has to do with the devs wanting to focus on what platform at a time. It could also be XB1 not having acting VR support.
There was a rumor that Sony tried to buy Hello Games before the reveal of No Man's Sky and try to make it a PS4 exclusive but they wanted to do the PC version so I'm sure the deal they made with Hello Games is console exclusivity. http://n4g.com/news/1565347...
Sony should just spend money in bringing games to PlayStation like it's doing now, taking a game away from another platform dose nothing for the PS4 owner.
It's late Summer 2014... RoaTR releases Fall 2015... I'm sure Sony will have lots of limited time exclusives between now and then.
sony should not moneyhat multiplat games they should keep making their own exclusives they are good at that
How many copies of Tomb Raider were they going to sell on PS4 next holiday season with everyone playing Uncharted? They were probably better off waiting until 2016.
True. TR will probably come out in September or October with a huge PR push by MS. That way they can then do the same for Halo5. Square Enix can then turn around and release TR in 2016 on PS4 and PC. Really kinda smart business for 5 hem although they are catching grief. Too many people get too emotionally attached to a specific Console that when something gets taken away they feel like it's a personal attack and freak. This business is getting more expensive each year for AAA blockbuster devs. They have to be more precise than ever in their business tactics. That's why we are having less game launches each year that are AAA. Expect to see stuff like this to increase in time so the big companies can ensure profits. Side note : mass effect? Haha good joke author. Sony isn't gonna get anything special from EA for a long time after their recent slights towards them
Hehe Dreamfall was funded by PC gamers on kickstarter. It was only at Gamescom that PS4 version was announced. Dreamfall Chapters is part of a series of adventure games which started with The Longest Journey on PC followed by Dreamfall: The Longest Journey. Dreamfall Chapters is the end of the trilogy which is broken up into 2 parts.
Lmfao this articles title sounds childish as hell. You got one i want one too. Lmfao Boy you guys look like a fish out of water right now. It was wrong when xone done it, now you want to do it. By all means sony. Feel free. I wont be mad. Show me something. Follow in ms footsteps. Or, you could make your own trail.
We talking about AAA exclusives no indie games
What ps4 and ps3 misses is a game that you can play for years to come and keep on getting better at it. I mean something on a scale of Halo where you have all the championships, tournaments every month and massive community that supports and plays the game 8 years after release. A game that actually feels as epic. A game where skill actually matters (If you're really good at halo, you can have 3 people shooting you in the back, and still can turn around and kill them) Don't get me wrong, there are some amazing franchises on PS but when playing them, I have never felt like I'm a part of something as huge as Halo or even Gears of War. I usually play the game for 2 weeks and then just leave it. Killzone tried to get there, but never reached even the level of GoW. I do remember awesome nights when playing socom...too bad it died. Yep, a lot of HALO love in my post, but it's well deserved. I'd love a game of same epicness on ps4. No, Destiny doesn't even compare (great game but totally different, even in pvp).
Get GTA Back.
PS4 is getting GTA
If Sony wanted exclusive GTA for the PS4, they would have to sell the whole company to get it.
'... go get'? Jesus.
Talk about making the problem worse.
I don't get it either... People are complaining about MS getting TR not because it's MS, but for the move itself, that had been pretty clear! Sony "taking revenge" would make no sense and hurt their newfound massive popularity more than anything else... Sure some push-over fanboys would cheer about it, but not most gamers, it seens people are getting fed up with all the crap the gaming industry had been rolling on this last gen. After people had been more outspeaking against flaws within their favorite companies consoles and games, I'm here hoping the DLC/season pass and multiplayer paywalls trends hidden within full priced 60 bucks games take the heat next and some idiot want companies to do more shaddy business instead of just selling us the games square? Man... Sometimes I just wish those people would get cast out of the gene pool for good.
I mean, what's the big deal? PS4 will be getting Tomb Raider. We don't need to 'get' anything.
"We"? You're Sony?!
No. He's Playstation.
@Oreo - Well, when the recent NPD numbers came out, one bitter XB fan did congratulate all the Sony fans here and said we were amazing, so apparently we are in fact part of a collective called Sony Playstation. OT - Sony doesn't have to do anything in response to a timed exclusive. They're already bringing more games than the competition anyway.
Sony's first party's are pretty talented they don't need to "go get " anything. (I realized the title said go get)
They don't need to get anything their first party studios are good enough, third party exclusives are just an annoyance for all gamers
The Last Guardian.
they shouldn't get anything i hate when Sony and Microsoft buy third party exclusives
Xbox1 is all third party. MS didnt make 1 game except for what rare does. Ms buys the rights to publish. Sony has many 1st party and Nintendo is the king of them all
Sony doesn't have to go get anything Number 1 in sales third party developers should be kissing Sonys feet begging to be on their platform.
and that attitude is why Sony lost how much of the market last generation.
Sure, price point and hitting the market a year late had nothing to do with it.
MS spent tons of money on timed exclusive games and content last generation and fell from 1st to 3rd.
How did they lose the market last gen since they outsold the 360 .
@wolfcreek, the amazing part is anyone with simple knowledge knows they lost a huge market share last generation. The worst part is their are art actually posters stupid enough to agree with your post.
Tomb raider is just the beginning, there are more coming exclusively for the Xbox One. Microsoft is finally using their most aggressive strategy yet, even though they and the other companies are making millions of fans upset . I think 2015 will be a great year for the Xbox team.
the only thing money hatting shows is a lack of confidence in their own 1st party studios. the money they've spent on excluding other gamers could have been put towards the development of their own new IPs.
Especially that 400 mil. $ spend on NFL deal. Imagine that money MS really invested in 1st party. Damn, even development for GTA V didn't cost like NFL deal.
I was never the biggest Xbox fan but I don't want to see Sony buy up games just so Xbox gamers can't play them. I want them to win on their own dedication and talent.
Sony won't and doesn't need to. The more the gap increases the more likely exclusives will just come to Sony.
@passiveattack Sony already does. Bloodbourne, no mans sky, deep down, journey, destiny content I could keep going if you'd like
You hypocrite... or completely blind. Sony IS and has been buying 3rd party exclusives since the PS1 console. Fanboys! * shakes head and facepalm * EDIT: Sometimes I think to my self. Why do I even bother responding to blind fanboys. I need to stop doing so.
@kribwalker the only game you mentioned i agree with is no mans sky. By the sounds of it they may have bought the studio which if true is completely different then what MS is doing. So you dont really have a point. @come_born Your butt hurt is showing. Yes in the ps1 and ps2 era yes. Your right and i can see sony helping fund games like destiny for exclusive content, but thats not the same as dropping huge amount of cash to get a game as timed exclusive.
@PassiveAttack Actually the timed added content that Sony has paid for Destiny is exactly the same. With the exception of consumers currently knowing of the year head start compared to a non disclosed length.
So more times exclusives that will just make there way to ps4 and other systems? Fine by me
yeah, 2015, great year for timed exclusives... Microsoft making this practice popular was a pretty annoying thing.
Im glad Sony doesn't have to depend on 3rd parties for exclusives to be successful. I want them to spend money on bringing PS4 owners new IPs. My 2 cents. Mr. PS
I agree with you, I also want to add Microsoft has just as many 1st party games as Sony starting with sunset drive for xbox one owners,then in 2015 you have at a few first party games coming from Sony and ms.I don't mind Ms or Sony buying third party game I dont see why folks are upset.Im a pc gamer and I didnt get upset when I heard the news about ms and Tomb Raider deal.Reason why because when it comes to console games being ported to pc, ms are ways ahead of Sony in that department.Sony is selfish when it comes to releasing some of their games on pc
Have you seen Microsoft's 2015 exclusive lineup compared to Sony? No wonder they're spending millions desperately signing timed-exclusive deals. Sony still has loads more ACTUAL exclusives.
Nothing, we have Uncharted. Uncharted >>>>>>> Tomb Raider PERIOD. Playstation owners have nothing to worry about. Tomb Raider FANS are the ones upset about it. From what I've read Time Exclusive, PS4 version will be out, probably better with more content as well.
More content as well.... Were you serious, could you elaborate please?
Generally after a yearly release of a timed exclusive, it would include all the DLC and whatever else repackaged for the 60 dollar Retail price, sometimes even less than that. Do I need to Elaborate more ?
They already have UC.
These Rise of Tomb Raider articles have gotten out of hand. Gamescom is still not over; there are still other things(games)to write about.
I am sure they can dig up some indie exclusive off the dollar menu. If not, there is always the bottle.
Fallout 4 for 6 months or something like this. Skyrim was completely broken on PS3 so Bethesda owes Sony a game
After FO3 i stopped buying Bethesda games untill I knew they worked. When I finally got Skyrim it worked fine waited a whole year and bought it used I say F* Bethesda.
Xbox has Tomb Raider, how many Japanese based studios do Sony have who don't develop for Xbox? They might be niche titles but for many gamers, more than justify a PS4 purchase. Nobody talks about it but PS has the new Guilty Gear coming out, I'm sure that doesn't interest 98% of people here but for fans, that's a pretty big exclusive.
I like Sony to get Crash Bandicoot back.
This is the only possible correct answer!
Sony doesn't have to throw a money at 3rd party for exclusive. That's what happens when you lack a lot of talented 1st party studios you have to resort to buying shut that will eventually release on other platforms anyways. BioShock, Mass Effect, Ryse, Plants V Zombies, DR3, Titanfall, Tomb Raider. But Sony does have Hellblade and Ninja Theory has said that they're only working on a PS4 version right now. Same with No Man's Sky they're also only working on a PS4 version right now.
Uh mom. SONY IS BROKE. Not saying they will go bankrupt, but if they spent $$ like that bond holders would repossess the company. The Ps4s success has thankfully saved them from ruin, but they need to sit on as much profit as possible and pay down debt..
Sony is a bank and insurance company: they operate on debt. Seriously sick of this stupidity.
You're an idiot.
Hey guys, some random dude on the interweb said it, so it must be true /s
Nothing hopefully doing this makes companies look desperate and it hurts the community I have all consoles so I don't mind but my friend who has a ps4 will have to wait for the sequel to a game he really enjoyed and we enjoyed discussing now ill either have to wait or just miss out on talking about a great game with my friend :(
They can have Uncharted 4
I really don't want Sony to go buy any multiplats. We get to play it either way. Waste of money.
Microsoft's tactic of buying 3rd party timed exclusives/DLC didn't work last generation, in fact, it was the reason they lost last generation so I have no idea why they would do it again. The money would be better spent on their 1st party studios.
