"A console port to PC, a Yay or a Nay ? My personal opinion remains that Ryse Son of Rome should not have come to PC, instead it should have remained a Xbox One exclusive."
This article is duuuumb
It was supposed to be a last gen multiplat game. Until Microsoft paid for exclusivity.
No it was supposed to be a kinect game for X360 until it was retooled. http://kotaku.com/5809005/c...
Xbox One and a Windows PC are the same in my book, don't really care. Microsoft platforms continue to be the best place to play. I'll take my multiplatforms on one of those platforms. I own a PS4 for exclusives only. Owning all of them is the only way to go as a gamer though , best of everything. Best network in XBL, best graphics on PC, and the best games on all 3. No Wii U needed.
The costs associated with creating this game need to be recouped. It was not supposed to drive the company to the brink of bankruptcy. Lest we forget that Crytek only still exists because of a cash infusion secured by the ownership. Doesn't really matter if it was supposed to be a 360 or Xbox One game at this point. @XBLSkull A bit of a logical fallacy to say that real gamers own all, except for Wii U because its not needed. Sounds like an oponion... not a fact.
XBskull is telling a bunch of lies there. It's a known fact PS4 is the Multiplatform player. The network for XBL is slower. I own both as well. Taking me almost all day to download games on XBL and slower to install those games by a big margin.
@XBLSkull No Wii U needed? As a PC gamer, I can say that without a doubt, if you have a PC, then a Wii U is the only one that is truly necessary. Sony has some nice exclusives, so it makes a good second console, but Wii U has hands down the most console exclusives and has the kind of games that just are not available on PC or other consoles. So..... yeah.
@ AlexKoepp Sure, bring Windows PC into the equation to downplay PS4 if you can't manage to get Xbone to fight its own losing battles. And the fact that you say Wii U is not needed proves that none of your points are anything but warped opinion. Owning all of them is the only way to go as a gamer though, except the "unnecessary" console that has more and better rated exclusives than the Xbone. That makes perfect sense. /s
Crytek wasnt happy with there sales every company makes bad choices there bad choice given there financial stance was to listen to MS get suckered into a exclusive deal no offence to MS owners but company one my most liked devs had issues doing this was never good. If there still tied to MS then hitting Pc with ms holding the cards on there OS is another way for crytek increase sales. Im Defo pumped this game on my Rig but im saddened that CEO made bad choice not multi platform this would sold hugely. BTW Ryse should not be on PC well witcher 2 should stayed PC exclusive too huh. It happens get over it.
XBLSkull doesn't own a Playstation. Don't listen to the madness and deception.
@NukaCola I've been saying that for months about the 1 bubble brigade.. but in my opinion they must think saying that they own one gives them justification to come to sony articles to troll.. I'm not saying that some of them don't own both consoles or even all 3 but c'mon for as much as some of these people seemingly hate sony just sell it then.. furthermore I'd love to get some psn ids for validation tho..
Seriously. It bombed on Xbox. Least they could do is at least try and make up for their loss, which resulted in Crytek layoffs and bankruptcy rumors.
I seriously doubt before any god that this game was the issue for crytek loss , mismanagement or stupidity at excutive levels .
Not withstanding the fact that companies like to make money, he has a point in saying that if exclusives are supposed to be a reason to purchase an Xbox, porting them to PC kind of effects that prospective.
That's what makes it dumb Crytek should be worried about making their IP available to as much ppl as possible, which makes them money. Not worried about adding value to Xbox One and making MS money but does nothing for Crytek
This is why 3rd party exclusivity is shaky though and why 1st party or 1st party collabs with 3rd party are so important. If you want more appeal to your console, collab more 1st-3rd party projects or create more 1st party titles.
Funding the industry is creating a market with more developers, more games and happier gamers. That's why they should stop buying exclusivity, their money could be spent making something new and ambitious, instead of an albeit beautiful game, one where mashing buttons is the norm.
It shouldn't have come out for fucking anything. It's spunk gargle weewee shit.
Pfft more exaggerated nonsense. Lots of people enjoyed the game on Xbox One. There's no reason to think that many people on PC won't enjoy it as well. http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.amazon.com/Ryse-... But among the mindless gamer sheep, anything that isn't amazing is pure shit. You guys are ridiculous.
Yeah, very very dumb. Crytek is not a first party developer. They obviously had some deal with Microsoft that allowed them to release a PC version after an exclusivity window. This will allow Crytek to make some more much needed money off the game and allow those on PC that the game interests to enjoy the game as well.
The author is clearly a butthurt Xbox One fanboy.
why is it dumb?. Look dead Rising 3. It was poorly optimized. Next gen port games is harder to optimize than multi platform games. So meaby this game have some issues too. Who knows. Im going to try it out
Everyone deserves to play a beautiful looking game. Silly article. Wish it was on PS4 as well.
I agree with you and I am equally excited for its release on PC. You probably didn't read my whole opinion :)
Just plain and simple No.
I agree I love this game on the Xbox One. I wish it was available on all platforms., I think it was just given bad press and bad comments by people who never actually played it. It was a very enjoyable game with incredible graphics,a great story, great voice acting and all around awesome experience.
Lol need to put it on more then just the pc to make some cash.
Crytek needs the money, unless you want them to go under...
people are just gonna pirate it!
Way to just assume based on...what?
Poor mans argument. Way to go
Hmm, movies get pirated all the time, music does as well, so do books, and TV shows, etc. Doesn't stop people from going out and buying them.
Bomb on the xbox one, best looking game todate!!! If you don't think so then your just a dumbass....
"best looking game todate" - No. OT: Article is poorly written and the sentiments are nearly as bad.
"Game producers keeping exclusives to their respective consoles and not porting them later for PC keeps the competition high. Greater competetion among developers means better quality of games for multi-platforms. " .. So.. The.. Wait what? Keeping things exclusives results in great games like.. Ryse? Ryse isn't actually widely considered to be a particularly great game.. Nobody is competing with Ryse when they develop anything, it's just not a consideration. I am going to buy Ryse in a Steam sale, as it does look like fun. (If historically troublesome.)
Crytek need to make money dumbass
I am glad it is comming to PC... stupid console trolls GTFO the almost redone the port for pc to make it run and look better i think the game looks AMAZING and will be happy to support CRYTEK any day..
I don't want the game, but I wholly disagree with this article. Many PC gamers would gladly play it.
I'll gladly play it when it costs around $5-10 on steam. I can't see paying $40 for a 6 hour game.
Kind of the same. I'll get it for under $10 or $14.99 max. Too many other games I've got to get too first so I can probably hold of till it's 4.99
MS gets paid either way and also this will help Crytek get some much needed cash. I played the xb1 verbut will be getting the pc versions so i can enjoy Ryse in all its 4k glory
lol pc fanboys excited about a game console gamers didnt even care about outside xbox fans nearly a year later,crytek makes mediocre games, crysis series sucked lol and so does this crytek going under cause they only make tech demo games instead of good games
You mean like you were with Planetside 2? Until I told you it was a PC game. *sigh* Once a troll..always a troll I guess.
Wow.. this guy is the biggest PC troll. hahaha what's wrong with PC troll? Don't like 4k 60fps or something?
Doesn't help the fact that this game is boring
Who needs a stupid QTE game ? NOT ME .
Enjoyed the game on xb1 may get the pc version for max pretty one steam sale.
Was this game even moving X1s and would it even continue to do so? I mean, I understand it fell in the "good-not-great" area of general opinion, is that a "system seller" area? I personally don't have much interest in the game but I can't see it as a lifetime system seller. Maybe if was going to be the start of a franchise, but I don't see that happening.
Some butt-hurt console peasant?
