If you’re excited for Tom Clancy’s The Division, we might get to catch a glimpse on it soon enough according to industry insider Shinobi602, who is quite consistent in the credibility of the information provided by his sources.
God dang it
I am looking forward to this game. I always liked the Tom Clancy series, from Ghost Recon to Rainbow Six. However, their game mechanic is getting stale, so I hope for something really fresh. vishma: We already know MS cut a deal with Ubisoft about The Division. There is no reason why you cannot enjoy it on the PS4 still.
This is like Destiny allll over again.
First Halo Guardians, then Evolve now the Division keep up the good work MS love what you doing with X1.
Does anything this guy just said make sense...to anyone? I can't make heads nor tails of it. Is it worth getting hyped up over timed demos/alphas/betas for Evolve and The Division?? Does timed exclusive content really get your juices flowing?? If so, I feel for you. Is that what we've come to? Good gawd man, good gawd.
Or maybe he's happy Microsoft is making his Xbox One over PS4 purchase mean something to him? So yes, "Does anything this guy just said make sense...to anyone?" it does.
If you didnt know by now the division was going with xbone for exclusive content first you have been paying attention. Ps4 got the Destiny beta first xbone gets the division it balances out.
Why? Its probably going to be like only a few days before PS4 get it. For a proper beta they need PS4 users stressing the servers IMO
I was saying the same thing when I read the title. It's a bit funny how I spotted this after reading the article about a Division dev in an interview talking about parity. It doesn't bother me when a beta is being exclusive to one console but I honestly think this parity crap as to stop. No one in their right mind will intentionally downgrade their game just to make everybody feel happy without having some huge benefit from doing so. This gen has been slightly disappointing when it comes to things like this especially when it's obvious they are doing it to just make quick profit for doing less work. I just hope parity doesn't become a norm with multiplat games. I hope I'm not the only one who feels like this. I don't comment much because there are some unreasonable people on here and to read what they say can be mind numbing.
Thanks Shinobi, for stealing their thunder and claiming it as your own. Did you get the ego boost you needed? At least you are now successful for planting the seed of annoyance but infecting this already torrid landscape. True or not, It should be left for Ubisoft to announce. after all, they are the ones making it aren't they?
This game looks amazing :)
Booo! Oh wait, I have an Xbox One! Yaay!
Haha, made me lol !
then they were like ohhhh crap everyone buying ps4s. quick make it for everyone @Ciporta1980 how do you know? microsoft and sony have access to lot more data then we do, and they obviously see its effect and clearly it works or else they wouldn't keep doing it.
Why do sony and Microsoft keep doing this? Unless it's by a first party studio then just let it be multiplatform. It's just wasted money on both sides.
I agree, for instance the fact that the next TR is exclusive to the X1 (for whatever time period) doesn't make it any more enjoyable for me even though it's my system of choice. Keep third party games multiplat.
Its all for marketing purposes mainly. I've warned people this is only gonna get worse. If anyone thought this was gonna end with Sony and Bungie. Sadly you guys are mistaken. And since MS got caught off guard for the very first time with the whole Sony and Bungie collaboration, MS is gonna be doing more than ever now. And next the next big game Sony will make a deal its a vicious cycle. @Ciporta I'm afraid making deals will be much stronger this gen. Considering publishers LOVE Sony and MS $$$.
You mean Activision and Sony... Bungie and Sony have no deals. And MS has first dibs on Bungie games if they want. Also its ok if Bungie decides to work with Sony. MS still has a stake in them...so cha ching.....
This is exactly why I own both consoles.
You bought 2 consoles just so you can play this beta?
Lol. This made me laugh. I think you know what he meant, though. The environments in this game are staggering. The detail in everything is incredible. I've read that they're trying to do unique things with the Snowdrop engine, and it's built from the ground up for current-gen only. Now here's to having great gameplay as well hopefully.
You win the Internet.
No he bought 2 consoles so that way he won't get screwed out this gen.
---------->Joke AngelicIceDiamond's head lol OT: This game looks great but i can't see these timed betas being worth the probably hefty investment from MS.
The misguided pride of multi-console owners has always cracked me up.
Yes. Someone told multi-console owners that they are superior and they act that way. =)
Every time I see a quote attributed to an "insider", I mentally substitute the phrase "said some random guy, who made some crap up that I printed because I like hits on my website more than I like journalistic integrity."
Damn I already have a pc and a ps4 no need for a xbone just yet.
Yessssss! Come to me my pretty
Who cares? nothing but bullshotting and downgrading anyway from Ubisoft. Zero interest in this game. Hope Ubisoft flops.
Hey let me run out and buy an Xbox One for this beta........ Yeah, maybe not.
Just bought an Xbox One, but screw time exclusive betas.
It is about time you Jump In. I was seriously thinking the Cubs would win a WS before you even touch a MS console but congrat..you will love it and will surprise you.
Really? Haha. I had a 360 for awhile, man.
I thought the game was releasing in march ??
Sick of 'betas' having exclusivity periods.. If it was a proper beta you'd want as much testing as possible on all platforms! Just call it a sneak preview demo and be done with it!
im sorry, this console exclusive crap for betas is getting ridiculous. I guess devs will never understand if you piss off the other side, it has a impact on sales on launch day.
Does it really have an impact on sales? Has this been proven? Seems to me that everyone buys the game anyway and devs get more money on the side through these deals.
Phil better get Legal to send Ubisoft a nice reminder of contract legality , so as to be clear.( Love the negative this beta is getting when not on all plats ,but yet it's okay the other way around . Just rock kicking sad.
No one should believe the bullshot or the pc ultra shots Ubisoft tries to pull off as console screens lol the word is in we already know the deal Hopefully they prove me wrong.
Is it like an open beta, can anyone join it
What happened to the PS4 exclusive stuff and timing?
What PS4 exclusive stuff? Xbox gets exclusive content. Anyway I never understood the point of having platform exclusive alphas or betas. I would think the developer would want that kind of thing to be tested as widely as possible. But the whole industry is different these days.
I read through the article first then through the comments....1st only a couple people comment on the fact that this info is from a "insider" and it's a "rumor". 2nd this is a Delay'Bisoft game that could be and prolly is still 3 plus yrs away. On another note this game is the very reason why I went next gen ummmm last year before the the first of many, many delay. Of all the games that get delay after delay this is the one that may never goto market and I see no reason to believe it will and "IF" it does well, we already know to expect far less than what we seen from the first clips that were shown at E3 last century.
Man March is so far away....so much awesomeness for 2015
Welcome to capitalism and competition, people. If you don't like it, prove it with your wallets. That's the only way anybody will listen. Until then: competition is overall better for all of us even despite these ugly little bumps.
What is this a response to?
The oft-mentioned notion in this thread that Sony or Microsoft are wrong for doing this. They might be wrong but this is part of the competition that is good for us in the end.
@TheTwelve: It probably would work better if someone actually made any comment of the sort. You mentioning it like this only incites others to make it the topic rather than just leaving it alone.

I was replying to comments such as these, shown right above. I don't understand your grievance.
calm down guys. it's just a beta
If destinys ps4 exclusive content has taught me anything its not to get upset over this shit. Enjoy the beta test and continuing to do so after release. I have high hopes for division, but with recent disappointments and stupid amounts of hype I will likely ignore this game until a few months down the road. Buying new isn't worth the disappointment.
Would you rather have the beta first or a better version of the final game ?
Maybe I'm searching too far, but parity arguments from the past weeks comes from this type of deals?
No that's another topic, or at least I haven't seen anyone else connect the two.
I don't care if they have the beta first. Game will be released at the same time. Just don't dumb it down because of the xbone.
Ughh another timed exclusive beta? Don't know why MS keep wasting money on timed exclusives. They only get what, a few weeks to a month to brag before it comes to PS4? Might as well just throw money in a fire too while you're at it.
So FF XV and The Division in March... I'm down.
I smell another downgrade.
what a coincidence im buying one in march
