Those waiting for a PS4 port of Access Game's D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die are out of luck, but don't rule out other consoles.
Maybe they'll pull a Mass Effect?
D4 wouldn't even work properly on PS4 due to it being a Kinect game.
The playstation camera is pretty good. Why can't that one be used?
Oh, ok, I know nothing about the game, I'm just saying that it's not the first time that an exclusive game would make it into the rival console. By the way I just checked some gameplay videos and stuff, it's not a "Kinect game", as you can play it without it
@MrSwankSinatra you can also play it with a controller.
Pretty obvious it won't come to PS4, Microsoft funded the game. Whether Swery or MS owns the IP determines if we'll get a PC port. It looks like a fun, quirky game.
The sales for D4 are rumored to be terrible http://m.neogaf.com/showthr... which is a shamesince the game is getting allot love from the people who played it.
Wasn't it discovered that only 6000 copies were sold?
The game was sent to die, there was no real media build up for it until release, no marketing for it, and it hasn't had reviews on a mass scale that I've seen.
After playing D4 it's overated. I rather play Beyond or Heavy Rain or Indigo Prophecy. You can't even more your character in real time. PS4 only owners aren't missing anything!
@mikeslemonade Yeah lol, this game is actually great. Your just a angry PlayStation fanboy who didn't actually get the game. Great plot, great characters, and fun gameplay. I played through the whole game and had a blast. That being said however, I do wish this game was releasing on ps4 and pc. The game is great and I hope as many people as possible can play it.
@Abizzel1 To be fair Swery said he wanted to pull an Apple and release the Game unannounced after he showed it to everyone at TGS though
That, and sales for D4 are so low right now, it's unclear if it's too unpopular to port or if porting it might be worth the gamble to potentially earn back dev costs... Either way it looks intriguing, too bad it's gotten so little marketing.
Swery should give himself a chance.....but thats just too bad, D4 will be a flop 'Forever' then. will keep my finger crossed to see a special edition on ps4, deadly premonition did end up on the ps3 after all.
"The playstation camera is pretty good. Why can't that one be used? " get a copy of just dance 2014 and find out yourself.. Its a decent cam but its not got full motion controls built in like Kinect. Saying that Sony dont try to push crappy Kinect features down your throat or Kinect games. you just get the cool voice commands with Sonys cam.
@Transporter47 the PS camera is no where near the ability of the Kinect 2.0.
No loss at all, big yawn. I liked the original D & D2 though.
I was always under the impression that this was a XB1 exclusive game... I also knew it wouldn't get great sales as it's not the type of game a lot of people would be interested in... It will probably free with games with gold in the next year
@transporter47: The kinect actually builds a 3 dimensional space and tracks depth and movement along with hand/finger movement, spatial relationships, facial tracking and a floor plane as well as creates simple rigged skeletons of tracked players (it can see where your joints bend etc). The playstation camera simply just does optical tracking and facial recognition (hence those big lights on the ds4) so its not nearly as sophisticated - i believe it can detect a floor plane though (which is good). (disclaimer) before anybody accuses me and burns me at the stake for trolling, I'm not saying its better or taking sides - just simply stating facts about differences in technology. theres a reason one costs $200 and one costs $60.
@MrSwankSinatra: Kinect 2.0 = 1920x1080 single lens @ 30fps, FOV 70 PS4 Eye = 1280x720 dual 3D lenses @ 60fps, FOV 85. Kinect 2.0 is nothing special hardware wise, it is comparable to a $40-50 logitech webcam. It is all in the software which Sony could easily replicate if they wanted to. @system22: Everything you described there besides the depth sensor, is handled on the software side. The PS4 Eyes 3D lenses are capable of superior depth detection.
@MrSwankSinatra you have the option of either Kinect or controller, though for those that choose controller, you loose a lot of the immersion playing this way. Despite youtube dougnuts like NukemDukem etc trying to say it is another Kinect fail, - Go FN calibrate your friggen Kinect, which you are supposed to do anytime you unplug or move the Kinect. The game is friggen amazing, and for the person who states that you can't move your character in real time ummm ever heard of games from Telltale studios Walking Dead etc. D4 follows the same format as it is an episodic who done it adventure game. So far D4 is only a prologue and episodes 1 and 2. Despite slow sales the game is getting reasonably good to great reviews, it has a current metacritic score of 77 based on 26 gaming media site reviews. Swery from Access Games has stated many times on Twitter that this game will not come to D4 in fact in 1 of his tweets he said he would be happy for D4 to come to the PS4 after Unchartered comes to the XB1. So from the horses mouth it is a definite no. The game for me personally is amazing and really believe over time this games will grow some mighty big legs and move on up from obscurity, here's hoping at least. I am more than happy to stream/broadcast D4 for anyone who disbeleives that D4 is the best game released so far when using Kinect. It is the most responsive and most fluid game to utilize the Kinect. You don't have to stand, you can sit. The gesture's are very subtle and not the complete waving your arms wildly in the air like a crazy person. There are parts that also use voice commands and voice interaction. I have played the game with both controller and Kinect and woould choose Kinect over controller everytime in respect of this game. When using a controller the experience somehow feels diluted and uses a lot of its charm, just saying
@ myself opps this comment "Swery from Access Games has stated many times on Twitter that this game will not come to D4 (correction should read PS4 not D4)
Yet again PS fanboys starting petitions or bombarding twitter/facebook to get exclusive games on XBOX onto PS4. You don't see that happening the other way around.
I got an Xbone at launch, so I have kinect. But I'll never buy anything for that system that uses it. Ever. Gimmicks make games suck.
@mrswank: right. because the PS camera couldn't possibly do motion controls or voice comma... oh, wait... it can.
@legionsoup i purchased the kinect ONLY for Child Of Eden last gen, if i see something i like with the kinect 2.0 i will buy it gimmick or not. @legionsoup are you lost little fanboy?
Wasn't the only reason mass effect came to ps was because EA bought bioware and ms sold the rights of the first game to them?
Damn, and I was so looking forward to it ...
You could get a Xbox One? ;)
keep repeating these imaginary scenarios.. Bioware owned Mass Efeect IP. EA BOUGHT Bioware and got the IP then it went multiplatform.
4-5 years later no one will care.
I actually don't care right now, just came here for the flame war.
This is the first time hearing about this game and my thoughts are? so. Doubt I would have bought it anyway.
I feel the same way about Octodad. That can stay exclusive on the PS4. I'll never buy that crap.
Game looks interesting. Likely get this game when I purchase a X1.
It's crazy fun, and the Kinect integration is excellent IMO.
Very awesome game, love the absolute zaniness of the game. Xbox needs more of these types of titles.
I know nothing about the game. I remember them announcing it last year and that's the last i heard about it.
Don't see why not. It would sell decent on the PS4.
Ah, ok. Thats why lol. Sad because i would play it if it did come to ps4. It looks so fun and whacky.
The main reason is that Swery's passion was getting this working as a Kinect title, and even though it has a controller option, I think he appreciates that Microsoft let the game happen for him with the new Kinect. They published it, although let's face it. This game has bombed BECAUSE of Microsoft. They just dumped it on the store with no promotion, no warning of a release date and you'd expect them to be pushing their Kinect software. It's terrible of them and Swery knows it. There's no guarantee that he's even going to be making any more episodes of this due to the poor sales. And so if there aren't going to be any more episodes of Xbone, Swery sure as hell isn't going to use his own money to bring it to PS4 where it will sell slightly better, but not by much.
When did this game bomb? Is it official already? I mean the game just released! I remember people said to we had to wait a year to celebrate LBP and Infamous hitting a million sales. But I guess expectations are higher for a MS game that just released. MS did promote this game, during E3 and through media outlets. And on Xbox One it's one of the main games featured. You think because it didn't have a crazy Sony/Destiny promotion that MS didn't push the game? When has Sony done a crazy promotional push for a digital only niche game? Just stop, I love how your camp will rush to claim Xbox doesn't have any variety and desperately needs it and when it does show up, the very same day you claim it bombed and it should have been on PlayStation. Another example of MS being unable to please the other camp no matter how many excuses they make.
Pretty good game
Its a crap game with crap dialogue and graphics. The narrative part of the game sounded like a capcom game like dead rising.
nobody wants it either
definitely would have been a game i would enjoy. shame its not going to be on the ps4 or even get any more chapters. i played a little of deadly premonition and the action parts sucked, felt very tacked on.
Cool, sweet , man has his reason and that's all that matters.
Ps4 is the only thing that can #SaveD4 I remember saying its too bad the game would flop a couple weeks ago. and got slapped with a comment restriction. I wasnt trolling. Just sharing my thoughts based on the horrible circumstances the game was in, from a commercial standpoint. - Japanese Centric Game released on Xbox One Exclusively - No Marketing Push - Random Stealth Launch - Already Niche - Kinect focused even tho MS damn near abandoned Kinect (Tho playable without it) It was a match made in hell
It's hardly Japanese eccentric it's a point and click adventure game
Agreed on all fronts
I have no idea why any Japanese developer would choose Xbone exclusively unless it's one that Microsoft is directly funding that wouldn't be made otherwise like Dead Rising 3, or unless the developer is absolutely die hard towards Kinect, like Swery obvious was in this situation. The Xbone is selling like 3x worse as the 360 did in Japan, and at a slower rate. These guys might as well be sending their game out to die, and refusing an audience that would show a much greater appreciation of the end product. I really wonder if Swery will trust Microsoft with his game again.
It's either a Bayonetta 2 situation (Where the game wouldn't exist otherwise Which I would understand it being an exclusive in that case or They just let the money cloud their judgement. With all the examples of the 360 japan exclusive games failing miserably. Idk why they would shoot themselves in the foot like this.
I will buy it when its actually a complete game!Never understood why people buy episodic games at release when its not the complete story;better wait a buy the complete pack!
cuz not every gamer is the same. some need a new game then and there and will drop w.e the cash for their fix. I bought it but haven't started it yet. cheap too. low risk, high reward
Well that's fine its a good game but I can live without it so that's fine by me.
If this is the case Swery better stfu about its poor sales.
Ah, that's a shame. They must not like money. Well, other than Microsoft's money.
This game can work for Xbox One which now has a optional camera but not a PS4 with a optional camera? Both systems do the same voice commands to a T... & ps4s camera is actually more responsive/capable!
Ok... you had your opinion right up to the end when you went full fanboy ignorance... No... the PS4 camera is just 2 720p cameras where as the Kinect 2 has not only a 1080p camera, but can see you in the dark and track not only your individual fingers, but can track heart rate and tiny facial changes.... they aren't even in the same solar system.
Do any of the motion demos on ps4 & compare to motion offerings for kinect... I assure you what motion does for PS4 is miles ahead of Kinect for the One!
There is nothing the PS4's motion capture can do that the Kinect 2 can't and there is tons the Kinect can do that the PS4's eyetoy can't... like I said they aren't even in the same solar system. Brining up demo as if two web cams > a 3D infrared camera and a 1080p camera.
They also said Dead Rising 3 was 100% exclusive to Xbox One. http://n4g.com/news/1337566...
But that was funded by microsoft, this is funded & published by microsoft.
Lol? Micrososft also published Dead Rising 3.
Well let me apologize then, that means it won't hit ps4 then & all revenue from steam goes to both capcom & microsoft. Unless micro releases publishing rights like with mass effect once EA bought bioware along with mass effect. Actually that was sold to EA but you get my point.
amazing how Microsoft would bring out their published games on their other platform... Sony never does anything like that right?
And it hasn't come to PS4 and neither have plans been announced yet. Meaning likely reason is because they published the console version and got exclusive rights on console. So if it does jump platforms then it would come to more likely go to PC not PS4.
Article is D4 not coming to ps4, nothing about pc
Try reading the article I posted, it says Dead Rising 3 was not going to come to PS4 or PC, yet it came to PC.
