Capcom have released a teaser trailer for Street Fighter V, which will be released “exclusively on PS4 and PC”.
I knew it!!!!
Holy Balls, This is Megaton.
this is a hardcore hit on MS and being promoted so heavily as exclusive i dont see it to be timed ...if Sony secures another AAA Japanese exclusive the fight is over
These kind of deals are ok with me. I only have a XOne so I guess I'll be missing out unless a I have a PS4 by then. The only thing though .... where are all the comments screaming in outrage of how terrible money hatting is and how this kind of stuff is outrageous etc ?? The very same people seem to be more than fine with this.
Said before PS4 will start getting AAA 3rd party exclusives like the PS2 , X1 dosnt have enough market share for non shooter games
"Said before PS4 will start getting AAA 3rd party exclusives like the PS2 , X1 dosnt have enough market share for non shooter games" Unbelievable. The spin...the hypocrisy...its actually palpable lol. I'm not surprised by any means but its really interesting to note the difference in tone regarding this. Brilliant xD But yes, this is huge. But third party exclusivity is going to be worrisome trend now started by MS.
@Septic Since Microsoft continues to make shady 3rd party deals, then why can't Sony then beat them at their own game? Not only that, but Sony has 1st and 2nd party on lock over MS too. PS2 era is back baby.
If it's real, then it's a big boost to PlayStation, since SF has a strong following, and now all those fans have to get a PS4 or capable PC to play it. But I don't see it being a huge loss for Xbox, MS has never really been a huge platform for SF until the 360 came, and IMO it was mainly bought out of connivence and US 360 numbers made it remotely comparable to PS3 number which were 2:1 and more across the world in favor of the PS3. And now with the PS4 in the lead nearly 2:1 WW and even more in those other regions it's not a huge surprise this happened. It's a sting to MS US Xbox SF fans, who have to make a choice on which console to buy first. The PS3 generally outsold the 360 in fighting game sales last-gen even with the smaller install base for most of the generation. The PS4 has the higher install base this time, so I see this becoming a trend for fighting games. I see this being the first of many former multiplats of games that have a good sales spread across the globe going PS4 exclusive if Sony wants, meanwhile MS will only be securing exclusives that appeal to NA / UK all because of sales. This is why sales matter.
Considering pro SF players and their followers went often to the 360 when not playing on arcade , because the game had a tiny extra input delay on ps3 , and because of the XBl network's reputation , i'd say that it's quite a big deal . And there was still a sizeable 360 community for the game Also It doesnt really matter that SF wasnt big on xbox till SF4 .... street fighter was literally dead in the mainstream eye for years before sf4 , and most sf came out before the first xbox .
@Septic Sony can't afford to moneyhat , publishers are skipping the x1 because it's more expensive and time consuming to port because of ESRAM and not enough sales in return for it , you can't blame them when even exclusives Forza and SSO failed to chart on NPD
http://www.dailymotion.com/... This is the trailer in case you've missed it guys :)
@q8kik bubble for you
@newmonday: "publishers are skipping the x1 because it's more expensive and time consuming to port because of ESRAM..." You do realize this is a fighting game and not something that would take advantage of ESRAM. And as far as expense and time consumption...how different do you think these two platforms are? you make it seem like it going from PS4 to the 2600. And yes...sony cant afford to moneyhat but in this case they did. If capcom was financially strapped enough to say they couldnt make a next gen SF game then where did they get the sudden urge (and $$$) to make one????? no worries though. Im sure there is a wii-u version as well as xb1 version of the "Super" edition in the works for a 6 month release after this one. It is capcom and that's how they roll.
Cross Platform fighting would be sweet. PC V PS4 = Win
So now it's Guilty Gear Xrd and Street Fighter 5. Sony have always been working on bettering the gaming industry. The have been involved in sponsoring fighting game events for a while and with the resurgence of the smash community to the spotlight since EVO Nintendo is also doing there part. Glad to see that this companies are paying attention to the FGC.
This is HUGE. HUGE.
You can easily call it a PS4 exclusive, fighting games have no influence on PC. P.S. Guilty Gear is also not coming to xbox.
Ugh. I hope it's at least only a timed exclusive. Stupid stuff.
While this is great news for PlayStation and I'm very happy I'll get to play it, I still don't like this. Multi-platorm games becoming exclusive isn't very cool for those who miss out. On the other hand...I can just see the text Phil woke up to this morning from Shuhei: "Remember. This is what you wanted."
Well Microsoft started it...
Wasn't the hadoukon cab thing teased before the TR announcement?
Metal Gear Solid, Silent Hill, Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy. Sony have a good track record of keeping exclusives, easy to see if you aren't a blind fanboy
Wait... Sony was doing this crap before Xbox was a thing... how exactly have you fabricated this tale in your head?
bloodborn, microsoft started it? i guess your not old enough to remember gta timed exclusive deals on the ps2. or all the software deals dating back to the snes and sega genenis days. this sort of thing has been going on for decades and another thing that hasn't changed are the console warriors who get upset every time this happens when their system is on the wrong end. this is a smart move for sony and their systems always sell better in japan which is where a lot of fighting fans come from. what id like to see one day but probably will never happen is the xbox one, ps4 and pc fans being able to compete online with one another. maybe not this game but some other game. because unlike you i dont really care about promoting my system since it doesnt reflect on me from a financial standpoint since it isnt my system because i didnt create it or design it. i only buy products so why would i act immature to the point of needing to downplay the competition? sounds rather immature but each to their own. i guess a few hundred dollars is a major investment for some.
That doesn't justify it Bloodborn. I'd rather get a new exclusive rather than stealing away multiplatform games from other Platforms.
This business was started before Microsoft even got into the console game... WoW you fanboys really see what you want to see. And the rest of the blind ones support it on N4G.
Not exactly back then Developing games the budget wasn't as crazy and the PS1 and PS2 LARGELY Dominated the market, so releasing games exclusively on PS wasn't a financial gamble in the early days especially during the PSone and PS2 era. With the shift to PowerPC and multicore Programming the rise in development cost ballooned and then of course Sony's blunders and MS making some strong moves last gen it was much better financially to sell games for the 2 platforms instead of developing solely for one if you were third party, MS had launched first and had a friendlier platform to Dev on. In the PS2 days Sony's stable of First party developers were few but they had largely saturated the market with PS2s by 72 percent and had launched before Both Nintendo and The late comer Xbox. Third parties didn't need to be money hatted to make games exclusively on the PS2 they just did because it made financial sense, Nintendo and MS had to money hat on the GameCube and the Original Xbox because they had the least market share and and guarantees for profitably weren't there. Their were expections to this rule as Sony secured deals for MGS and GTA as the previous appeared on GameCube and the latter often appeared on Xbox 9 months later. But square, Konami and Capcom All made bank on PS2 without Sony tossing cash. The Xb360 launching before PS3 and being development friendly and MS's aggressive courting of the third parties along with the balloon development cost of Development on both PS3 and XB360 made taking such risks without guaranteed returns or at least breaking even a silly thing... Look how many game studios and franchises died last gen... Money Hatting really took center stage in the Xb360/PS3 generation with MS boldly leading the charge, Games like Dead Rising, Lost Planet, Mass Effect, BioShock were all on Xb before PS and franchises that were too big to be exclusive got exclusive partnerships and dlc deals on XB... So with this shift in business its no surprise to see other platform holders take the same approach and diversafy their platforms. MS continued it into the PS4/XBO gen, but the tables have turned. Sony has learnt a lot and employed pound for pound the same tactics MS really popularized last cycle and Sony is doing it and getting results... Its business... I certainly wasn't happy with TF and TR being announced as exclusives on XBO since I certainly don't own one, but its business. PS fans cried the house down. MS fans will do the same or get it on PC. Its business Sucks for XB fans but it is what it is
How do you think PC gamers feel about Halo? and what about the Xbox One Tomb Raider deal. People should never be forced to buy specific hardware to play a game, but sadly that's just how these companies operate now.
Of course people should have to buy certain consoles for certain games, otherwise certain games wouldn't exist in the first place. Most 1st party developers wouldn't exist without the 1st party publishers, and they certainly won't be making the games they're making if it weren't for the 1st party funding. They could become an indie or 3rd party developer, but there's not a guarantee it'll work out for them. Nobody should be forced to do anything, though, and nobody is.
http://www.siliconera.com/2... It was likely never going to be made without outside help due to low sales of fighters and how much it would cost to develop. This is like a Titanfall or Bayonetta 2 situation where it likely needed another company to fund the game's development. Tomb Raider 2013 along with the DE versions were extremely successful and the sequel was already being made for the PS4, MS just paid for it to be timed.
Tomb Raider was not extremely successful. It was in fact a 'disappointment' in sales early on. gamerant.com/square-enix-tomb -raider-sales-loss/ It did finally managed to turn out a profit but it took a relatively longer time. And it was naver confirmed that Rise of the Tomb Raider was in development for PS4. Square Enix has never made official comment about that. The only thing I can find is them saying in late 2013 that a Tomb Raider sequel was in work for 'next-generation consoles'. You may think that this means PS4 too, but no, it doesn't. This just mean that work has begun and the publisher is not ready to announce the platforms. Remedy Entertainment said they were working on a 'cinematic experience for next-gen consoles' and that game turned out to be the exclusive Quantum Break.
Well for awhile i agreed and had your opinion but business-wise it gets ppl to buy more consoles.. The problem with ps4 and x1 is their (3rd party) libraries are too simular. But with all these recent deals it gives each platform a unique identity. But i must say it sucks for any one platform guy. I remember when most team ninja games were only on xbox and it helped xbox compete with sony's exclusive action games(devil may cry, GoW, tekken etc) having the same library is good for us(consumer) but bad for platform holders (ppl only need to get one). These guys arent in business to benefit us , but to get us to spend money.
Damn I laughed to hard at this, legion you kill me dude. Funny bubz
the same people angry because the Tomb Raider Exclusivity on One, is the one more happy now... i think. Lol. I dont get this 3rd party exclusives. Thats bad for all of us, gamers.
WHAT'S YOUR POINT!!! This is the same situation just like Bayonetta 2. Capcom need money for making new SF. So, probably Sony jumped in. http://www.gamespot.com/art... Anyway, SF was teased for PS4 way before that MS Tomb Raider thing! TR was in production for Xbone/PS4/PC, but MS blocked development for PC and PS4. http://www.el33tonline.com/... https://www.youtube.com/wat... https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Tomb Raider was NEVER announced for PS4 and PC. The only statement they ever gave was in late 2013 when they said that a Tomb Raider sequel was in work for 'next-generation consoles'. And before you think that this means PS4/PC too, it doesn't necessarily. This just means that work has begun and the publisher is not ready to announce the platforms. Remedy Entertainment said they were working on a 'cinematic experience for next-gen consoles' and that game turned out to be the exclusive Quantum Break.
Lol heck yeah!!
That's what i was expecting... but apparently it was supposed to be "unexpected". I'm not a fan of street fighter and i must say i'm disappointed. I suppose the ps4 needs something to counter killer instinct.
I'm also disappointed, I was hoping they'd announce Devil May Cry 5 as an exclusive again, or Dragons dogma 2
Street Fighter is way bigger than Killer Instinct
Finally. This is the first AAA PS4 game going to be released that I care about 100%. Looking foward to a few others like Uncharted but this is the biggie for me. And it's PS4 exclusive! I am usually against that but I hate going to tournaments and needing to play on Xbox's shit controllers. Guess that's a problem no longer! Can't wait...
video is set to private, but you can still see it here: http://www.eventhubs.com/ne...
Is good to see how SONY invest money in exclusivity but not in new IP. For me is ok, but is incredible how fans forget how they condemned MS for tomb raider exclusive. Now the same people are happy with this and price SONY for this purchase. The message here is that if is your console of preference who do the bad thing....it is ok! WAO! For me this is good because it will make MS respond and they are no playing.......gamers will win this gen that is for sure.
> Don't invest in new ip: The last of us The tomorrow children RIME WILD Bloodborne Driveclub What the hell are you talking about?
@alb1899 Wow, Just wow...really? Sony have no new IPs? Haven't those Xbots boys grown up already? How on earth this guy getting agrees, Trolling became boring lately....
I said that because that's what sony's fan boys said with the tomb raide not because I believe in it. I think both consoles has good new IPs and I really don't care about exclusives because I own both. I recommend that if you have the money and the time do the same.
Welp the check writing war has begun. Expect MS to sign a bigger check to make sure Tomb Raider sequel doesn't come to ps4.
Really excited for this one! I've been waiting for a AAA fighter to hit PS4 since release
I guessed this when ps4 first launched does nobody remember the live action ps4 commercial with all playstation characters it had Ryu driving the taxi I think this deals been done for over a year
Tomb Raider payback
Can't watch vid. What's the detailed analysis of its contents?
Remember when people said if TB was exclusive to PS4 it would have been great news and people were like no not really... This pretty much proves the double standard lol I guess paying publishers to give your system exclusives is okay now?
i think some people are more in a "serves you right" mindset , especially after being told that it was ok . And double standards worksboth ways with trolls . Look at some of the same people complaining about missing out SF5 , when they defended he Tomb raider purchase , on gaf or here . All of those are always advancing that it's ok , till their console is hit , and they miss something they care about
Remember when people said that it's just business and MS is looking out for their gamers? I guess paying publishers to take away your system games is not okay now?
the funny thing about this is that MS really did moneyhat for TR to be exclusive(since it was announced as multi), while this could be related to ps4 sales
The funny thing is you are probably wrong, you know why... A publisher does not simply ignore about half of NA current gen owners. And seriously do you think the PC version did much better than the 360 version when it comes to sales (SF4 on PC and fighters on PC are far from huge, I doubt it sold near as well) and that it would be so costly to port a PS4/PC game to Xbone they decided not to? Hell Capcom ports everything, clearly it is not to costly.
less than half *fixed And Street Fighter sells better on the Playstation brand anyway.
You can fix it all you want it is about half. Before black Friday it was 6M to 5M. If anything the only other thing would be a little less than half.
Yeah, no. They stated they didn't have funding for SFV a few months back. There is definitely money involved to make this happen. @below: If they're providing funding, there's going to be some benefits to Sony in it. And that benefit is definitely at least some form of exclusivity. Call it what you want, but Sony's money make it what it is.
by funding yes, but moneyhating to make from multi(as announced) to exclusive which what microsoft did
money is always involved in partnerships like these. you either accept exclusives or you don't. you can't have it both ways while trying to justify it.
The funny thing is that TR was NEVER announced as multi. They NEVER said this game was Ps4, x1 and Pc, only the fans supposed it would be. The only statement they ever gave was in late 2013 when they said that a Tomb Raider sequel was in work for 'next-generation consoles'. And before you think that this means PS4/PC too, it doesn't necessarily. This just means that work had begun, but the publisher is not ready to announce the platforms. It happens all the time. E.g Remedy Entertainment said they were working on a 'cinematic experience for next-gen consoles' and that game turned out to be the exclusive Quantum Break. They also said the same for Alan Wake, but it turned out to be only Xbox/PC.
You can find the Street Fighter V screens and video here https://www.youtube.com/wat...
We'll since everyone on n4g has a gaming PC no big deal right. So why did they remove the video if true? My guess another destiny type of deal .yes they are gonna start fighting for 3rd party exclusive deals. Which wouldnt be a good thing for sony xbox has deep pockets and could bleed them out if it comes to it
Errrr you ever play a fighter on a PC.... I rather eat nails.
It aint bad. Just get a fight pad (360one) it will work just like a console as long as its not GFWL. Plus free online play and sometimes mods
Yeah, why would you want higher resolutions, higher frame rate and just about any controller or fight stick available? That's just madness!
I thought if it was on PC it's not exclusive according to n4g... The hypocrisy... I'm more into soul calibur, so I'll skip this one.
PC isn't a console, so they can say it's exclusive console-wise, like Titanfall, XBox console exclusive, meaning you can't get it on any other console that isn't XBox, but if you have the choice, you can play it on PC as well.
