Hardcore Gamer: Sony have got themselves one hell of an investment.
The question then becomes, is the Street Fighter fanbase loyal enough to sway the console war?
Sway the console war, as in make the PS4 even further ahead of Xbox One's sales? I think the gap is too big at this point for it to matter at this point, even without SF5 exclusivity there wouldn't be much change
That gap is not too big for what is only the second year of the console generation. That being said. . .For street Fighter fans this is good. Personally, I am not a fighting game fan. If this will move Ps4s more than usual remains to be seen, though it should help sales, regardless.
SF is a big series for serious fighting fans but I wouldnt say its the biggest 3rd party exclusive for PS4. There are several more years left in this console cycle to see other megaton announcements. For now its a big announcement that is...until Capcom decides to announce SSFV.
It is good to see Sony are fighting fire with fire. Last gen Sony lost a ton of 3rd party exclusives (Final Fantasy Hitler vid anyone?), not to mention MS setup a ton of timed exclusive games and DLC. Now Sony are hitting back on all fronts they have had a ton of advertising and DLC deals already in the first year and now for the first time in years have secured a large 3rd party franchise.
But what game can give an advantage to Xbox. Halo looks meh right now.
Tomb Raider exclusive is far better than this.
Street Fighter fans will probably buy a PS4 for this, if they don't already have one
Dont forget they will also get the super edition of SF4
Or a pc
Personally Id like to see capcom do something different with the SF series. Make another 'vs' game but go with something they can control. They no longer have the marvel license so they would have to go more internal to their own stable of hits. Perhaps a RE vs SF or some sort of Capcom Battle Arena with characters from ALL walks of Capcom games. Similar to what SNK did with NeoGeo Battle Colosseum.
Docknoss tomb raider is Timed exclusive street fighter is full exclysive so sry to break it to ya but like it or not it is coming to ps4 Also ps4 has uncharted so yeah...dont care about tomb raider
I think Capcom made this decision to make the SF franchise get the attention it needs nowadays. Update: "Yoshinori Ono hopes to "reignite that fervor" of Street Fighter." Read more at http://gematsu.com/2014/12/... Guess I was right.
When it comes to console fighting games, who has historically bought an XBOX for fighters? I play a fair share of fighters and the D-Pad has always worked against me on XBOX 360. It's better now, but I think the general consensus has always been that if fighting games are a priority and you choose either PlayStation or XBOX, you go with PlayStation.
Not when the playstation version of street fighter 4 had a 2 frame lag over Xbox. There's a reason the Xbox version of SF was used in competitive events.
That is why serious fighting fans use sticks. They make adapters to let you use sticks from various mfg and even platforms on practically any system. Hell...I use a tekken stick from the PS2 on my 360 and PS3. I've even used the dreamcast stick on the 360 and PS3. The 360 version of SF4 has a quicker response than when I play it on the PS3 using the same stick.
I hated the four way pad on the PS, made it just as hard to pull off moves for SF4. 360 was bad too but I got used to it, but sticks are always the way to go.
It's not exclusive, it's coming out on PC too...
with free online multiplayer to boot.
go tell the same people that rant and rave about Titanfall...
Listen, whether or not you have or haven't defended games like Titanfall or Dead Rising 3 or Ryse as "exclusives", it just so happens that the industry treats them as such. We all know it's coming to PC. They were courteous enough not to lie about that, but when people refer to "exclusive" in this fashion, they mean it's not coming to the other consoles. It's fine if you feel uncomfortable enough to downplay the significance, but it's still a MASSIVE gain for PS4.
How super convenient! All through the Titanfall, Ryse and Deadrising 3 all Xbox fans heard was they weren't true exclusives because they were also on PC. Now it's ok to say "Console Exclusive" because now Sony is money hatting IP's that are also coming to PC also.
@gangsta_red: moneyhatting refers to buying exclusivity only. When the game in question is being funded or co-developed by the console maker, that word doesn't apply. Bayonetta 2 was not moneyhatted, as Nintendo paid for development of the game. Deep Down isn't moneyhatted, because Sony is helping with development. Titanfall is moneyhatted. Tomb Raider is moneyhatted. These games were well on their way to being multiplats before they were made exclusive. Console exclusive, by the way, has been a thing for a while, due in large part to Microsoft's lack of true exclusives over the past generation. Microsoft fans like yourself have been shifting the definition of exclusive for a while. Don't act like now it's Sony fans that are flip-flopping.
Now they only need to pay Capcom enough to develope a Monster Hunter for the Vita and PS4 with Cross-Play,
I wonder if tekken 7 will be exclusive to ps4 as we'll...I mean tekken use to be ps exclusive.
i dont think so
There's a possibillity for that. Example like Guilty Gear. The 1st Guilty Gear is exclusive for PS1. After that ArcSys made it multiplat. But now Guilty Gear Xrd is exclusive for Playstation again. Not to mention Harada making exclusive VR games for Morpheus. So i will not surprise if Namdai make Tekken 7 as PS4 exclusive.
love this game, day one 4me
It's not a exclusive.
Well, it's exclusive in the only way that really matters: you'll never see it on the competition's console. It will stay PS4 only forever, so if you bought an Xbox or Wii to play it, you made a huge mistake. Truth is, the inconvenience of building a Windows PC that could run this is going to turn a lot of people away from the PC version, unless you already have a PC that can run it. You think most people aren't gonna just say screw it and simply buy a PS4?
It doesnt look like it would be too demanding on a good PC. No doubt a system capable of running Titanfall would be able to handle SFV. THIS game may be console exclusive but where does that leave the Super or Ultra editions that are likely to follow? Capcom wont say and Sony already specifically said THIS version is console exclusive for life.
You're gonna be really disappointed when you find out the truth soon enough. Super or Ultra, doesn't matter, it's the same IP. And it's gonna be Sony's.
Fighting games are not exactly demanding.
All I have to say is having a PS4, a WiiU, and PC that runs circles around the PS4 and XboxOne is the bomb. Multiplats, I play on PC with my PS4 controller, and exclusives I play on PS4 and WiiU. So I don't care about the politics of who plays what. I play games. For SFV though, it's just so friggin sweet that there's cross platform play. I dunno which I'll get it for. When it comes to fighting games, there isn't usually much parity between the PC and console versions anyway. That being said, great move capcom and sony. This completely unifies the player base. Everyone who has SFV will play together. If the next iterations come to Xbox One, who cares. Xbox One owners can play in their little corner and PC/PS4 will have more than double the players in the pool. Nuff said.
Wow. . .I thought that term didn't exist.
Console exclusive. I wish people would just use the correct terms for this.
Loved sf4 last gen even made the vewlix cabinet. Not a chance i would buy a ps4 to play this, sucks its not on xb1 but sony helped fund. It wont shatter any records, sales werent fantastic for 4 on all platforms.
Would you rather see Street Fighter dead? They clearly didn't have the necessary funds to cover the game themselves for Ono.
No matter how hard people try to downplay the significance of this deal, this is explosive!! SF V PS4 will be bundled and marketed well by Sony. I can just imagine the TV spots/commercials. SF console-wise is in good hands ;)
No more or less explosive than Tomb Raider on the Xbox One at this point. I do not have either of the current gen consoles yet, and with this coming to PC, it is not a motivator for me to get a PS4, if I was a fighting game fan. What Capcom needs to do is make another Dino Crisis.
Tomb raider is timed, not only that it's not even the best TPS.on the market. Street fighter however is the definitive fighting series, the best in it's genre.
Maybe 20 years ago but definitely not today. Every iteration it sells less and less.
Did they say if the pc and ps4 version will be released at the same time? I'm not so sure the cross platform play will work that smoothly. I can hear the complaints already, can't connect, pc gamers are modding the game glitching the ps4 connection, etc.... Gamers (especially the younger crowd) are a fickle bunch. They praise you before a game releases and then condemn you to hell when they find the slightest glitch or isn't as great as it was made out to be. (i.e. Almost every game released this year)
Everyone and their mother has a PC. I'm pretty sure many Xbox One owners will not miss out on this one way or another... I'm pretty sure that many PC's will be able to run this o the minimum settings mostly fine as well.
If you have a decent PC, what's even the point of owning an Xbox? Ryse, titanfall, dead rising etc... There's only like 4 Xbox games that aren't on PC.
Just because people have a pc doesn't mean they use it for gaming
This is true. I have a pentium 3 pc that i converted to linux and i haven't turned it on ever since i got my tablet 2 yrs ago... For me to upgrade it to run even simple games would cost me well over $400 so i may as well buy a next gen console...but i'm not, at least not anytime soon anyway.
Doesn't matter that it's on PC, console ps4 version is where all the hype is and where the vast majority of gamers will play this. I predict this will move consoles and will be used in competitions.
The same people hyping this are the same people who bitched about Tomb Raider being exclusive to one console. Hypocrites. Hypocrites everywhere!
They obviously are not going to complain about not getting the game because they are. But I agree with the general opinion that it sucks for Street Fighter fans who game on Xbox. I really wished this game was on all platforms but Capcom really needed the funding. Just like with Dead Rising 3. :) I'm glad that Sony saved the franchise and allowed Capcom to produce it for PC.
Well according to ono on the PlayStation blog today, he said the new partnership is just beginning so it sounds like we might have even more bombshells to look forward to soon. I heard in two weeks around jump festa to expect more news from capcom.
But it's not an exclusive.
It's console-exclusive, meaning you won't get it on XBox One or Wii U, at least that specific version, like Final Fantasy 7 and MGS1, those have being on PC, but weren't available on Saturn and N64, you get it now? Smh.
In 6 months after release, Super SFV Championship edition will no doubt be on XB1 ar a reduced $39.99 price with better gameplay balance and an expanded roster (judging from past history on this series) while XB1 gamers still have Killer instinct season 3 and MKX to satisfy their fighting craving in the meantime...so I do not see this as an issue for them. Lets be honest, fighting gamea are really in a niche category in comparison to other genres like FPS, Open World games and RPGs so it is nothing to worry about.
So this means Dead Rising 3 will be on Ps4 sometime soon?
No...just like dead rising case zero was never on PS3 and stayed exclusive on X360 so I see little chance of that happening. SF is a different story as SFV will indeed stay exclusive but A Super SFV will be on other consoles as well just like SF2 that was exclusive to SNES..thw the SF2 Championship Edition was made on Genesis and every literations of the game since made its way to as many systems as possible. I see the same happening here.
Everything you just said supports the case that DR3 can make it to PS4. If you really believe future versions of SF5 will go to Xbone then why would Capcom say to sony, thanks for the cash, but we are porting to Xbone and u don't get DR3. So if Xbone gets SF5 then PS4 gets DR3. It's only logical.
This gen is getting really arrogant with these "exclusive" deals.
"Tomb Raider exclusive is far better than this" Unchartered 4 says hi, & please try again next gen Lara. Sorry, PS4 has THE ONLY adventure game in ND's effort, worth getting worked up over. I'm sure Tomb Raider will be great, BUT, as said, it will be coming to PS4, & seeing as ND are the masters of action adventure gaming, then SF5 is a MUCH, MUCH, more important exclusive. I just hope Sony locks a couple more BIG 3rd party IP's in, so XBots can see that no matter the side you worship (like a fool), that it is not a great thing when games/ip's previously available on other consoles are taken away.....especially IP's as huge as Streetfighter & such.. But with MS & Activision's antics, this is a nice return blow. Now The Agent from Rockstar would be another nice, unexpected announcement that many Sony fans feel are owed to them by Rockstar & there sellout antics to MS last gen...
