Why would anyone applaud an announcement where a game is being taken away from a sizeable portion of gamers.
Microsoft have secured titles -all- the time, but when Sony does it, the world explodes lol. Titanfall Sunset Overdrive (which is mildly frustrating considering it's made by Insomniac) Ryse Tomb Raider + DLC for various games It's a bad business thing, and i lose respect for Microsoft, because it just shows that they can't create their own IPs.
Do you realise that Sony has being purchasing 3rd party exclusives since the PS1. So tell me, how was it that Microsoft started it (Xbox didn't exist at the time)? So... are you going to hate Sony now that you know they have been purchasing exclusives way before Microsoft? Will Sony loose your respect?
Of course Sony purchased 3rd party exclusives in PS1 era. How else can they get their foot in the industry. Microsoft is purchasing exclusives because they didn't invest in 1st party studios like Sony has.
Sony didn't purchase 3rd party exclusives in the ps1 and ps2 era. They dominated to such an embarrassing degree that companies had no need to port their games to other consoles. That, and many of the games had to migrate to the playstation platform because of Nintendo's poor format choice (ie: ff7). Dev's games couldn't fit on Nintendo systems. So it wasn't a matter of paying devs off. It was a matter of being all that was relevant, with the hardware devs needed to fully realize their games. Now Sony has much more competition, and games cost much more to make, so incentives will be obligatory for any favoritism.
How has the world exploded ...these are articles from websites not gamers....not to mention that all the articles that keep getting posted are filled with comments with ppl complaining about the article and why microsoft does it all the time Have we even had a death threat yet....because when that happens we know there is all out rage over the internet
"Capcom doesn't have the resources for next-generation fighting game currently, Ono responds to Kickstarter suggestion" http://www.eventhubs.com/ne... Like Capcom is swimming in money right now ...... or swimming in debt? Its not exclusive to PS4. Its also coming to Windows PC - a platform that has multi-million times the install base of the PS4 and Xbox One combined. Maybe one should ask: "Why did Capcom went to another cash strapped company like Sony instead of multi billion money giant like Microsoft to fund their next SF knowing they have more money and this will also come out on Windows PC?" That is the real question right there. If you find the answer to that then you will know the real reason why it is a wise move for Capcom.

Its just not a smart business decision for both Capcom or Microsoft to make an exclusive deal even if Microsoft had more money or didn't have the non-crossplay policy. Xbox One is not selling well in Japan let alone worldwide. Japan is the second biggest market for Street Fighter. PS4 is pretty much even with Xbox in U.S. but PS4 will always have Japan. Plus, PS4 has a larger userbase. Why would Microsoft spend money for an exclusive they know won't sell much. Which is why Capcom chose not to spend the little money they had to develop a Xbox version.
More ps4 sales duh!..
This has been going on long before Microsoft even thought of making consoles. Either you're young or you just conveniently forgot about the PSX-era Sony and NES/SNES-era Nintendo.
Third party exclusives are certainly nothing new. But I think the trend of buying previously multiplatform titles is something popularized if not propagated by Microsoft. That said, Street Fighter is the same situation as Bayonetta 2, or very close to it: a multiplat gone exclusive for financial reasons. It's different than buying exclusivity for a game that would have been multiplat, anyway, like Tomb Raider. (No offense, but anyone who thinks Tomb Raider wouldn't have been made without Microsoft buying its TIMED exclusivity is a fool.) I think, in the case of most third party exclusives on PS2, it was a matter of the larger userbase that enticed developers and publishers. There might have been contracts, but I don't think it was needed for money to change hands; it just made sense.
Ever heard of the console wars. It's where fanboys get to brag about what they get and others don't. Very important for generating favorable chatter on the web. SF itself may not directly sell consoles, but the chatter may convince many to buy the console based on the attention it gets for this deal. Many people know and have found memories of SF, even if they never have interest in playing it anymore.
Why is it a bad business model? Makes no sense to me why it is?? These companies do what they can to make their systems more appealing to the masses. The better the competition the better for us, buy all systems and play all games. Sometimes i play ps4 for a long time then switch the xb1 for awhile, just so many games when you have it all
I agree I never understood why it matters...an exclusive is an exclusive which is why I have both consoles...SO I DONT GET EXCLUDED from these awesome games
Im still thinking, what exclusive ms is going get, cause they have deep pocket. I just hope ms does not start a war
Yeah what if MS responds by making Fallout 4 or the next Elder Scrolls game a permanent PC/Xbone exclusive? MS and Bethesda DO have a good partnership so that is not impossible. MS also basically has infinite money (they could throw 2.5 billion at Minecraft dev on a lark so...) they could almost do anything, Sony can't. A third party bidding war wouldn't end well for anyone not gaming on MS OSs.
Gamers have turn into whiny bitches after the 90's because this shit been happening years ago between Sony, Nintendo, and Sega but nobody was complaining and was too busy gaming TF! happened?!?
"Why would anyone applaud an announcement where a game is being taken away from a sizeable portion of gamers." These publishers lack the funds they used to, thus they require assistance. RotTR, MH, SF, DR, TF, Bayo, Dvl's 3rd and others are the results of these changing times causing changing revenues.
This is something that will happen as long as gaming is around. PC's have thousands of games that haven't nor ever will appear on consoles, and it's not because the developers can't make them work on consoles. I think some gamers in general have become too self-entitled. If people want something bad enough generally they make a way to get it! Or has this illogical fantasy console war permeated the very fabric of what gaming really is? If so, the true meaning and reward that comes along with enjoyment from gaming really is dead! And all everyone is doing is going through the motions.
This is obviously a issue about the shoe being on the other foot! This same practice was prevalent all last generation, and for the side that felt that they were winning something it was perfectly fine. Fast-foward to now, it has all of a sudden become the worst thing in the world. If people were so distressed about a title being exclusive to a specific console or PC, save up some money and go out and buy the console or PC that it's exclusive too! If that's not an option, then you'll have to just learn to deal with it.
"Nothing to be proud of". Umm, no. Because Nintendo seems awfully proud of Bayonetta 2, and I'm proud to own it. Same will be said of Devil's Third once it comes out, far as I'm concerned. When the multiplats aren't being done right, exclusives are something to look forward to. Furthermore... I get the feeling that this issue rises and falls in importance based on the popularity of the game, and thus I cannot call it an evil practice. Anything that gets on the nerves of people that hold their own consoles higher than others, can only be called a good thing, because elitism and self-destructive console pride sucks. I get that people love Street Fighter. I get that people want it to be across multiple platforms. Same with ROTT. But if it's a game you really love, then save up for as long as you need to in order to become a multiplatform owner. And if it's not, then just show some patience and wait for the next entry that IS multiplatform. Chances are there's going to be plenty of games to keep you busy until then, no matter what platform you own, so it won't be as heart-breaking a loss as you think it is.
I bet wii u will get tatsunoko vs capcom 2! Prayers for this!
Lol! Who swayed this ridiculous argument that capcom doesnt care about gamers? Xbone doesnt have Shareplay feature and the controller is horrible. Why wouldnt people buy a ps4 for streetfighter 5? A few people bought a xbone for... I dont know what a xbone has but im sure some bought 1 for a game. PS4 is the Gamers System. Accept Reality and Move on.
Oh NOW they aren't anything to be proud of. I see how that works.
This happens all the time. 3rd parties always give games to the highest bidder. Xbox had DeadRising3 console exclusive. Was it wrong then? If you want the game bad enough then get the console it comes out on. I'm not upset that a game I wouldn't have bought, is on a console I don't own.
Crying about it like a little girl is nothing to be proud about. Blame MS for forcing Sony's hand to acquire third party exclusives. Everybody does it so deal with it or get all three consoles.
Lol yeah especially when the opposing system lacks the strong 1st party franchises except maybe one. It becomes a shame huh well ps4 is leading by no small margin developers will for sure consider exclusives on it pretty much like the ps2 days. Now you should go and ask ms to fix their 1st party issues and be as much dependent on them selves as possible , because they can't and didn't and at this rate will not catch Nintendo or sony with games quantity and quality and please don't tell me this year did you forget those two long past generations
I wonder what people would say if Level-5 announces another PS exclusive.
My guess nothing you know xbox fans only play shooters and gory games am even surprised that they didn't respond very well to sfv it shows that they don't care too much just give them shooters. Nintendo and sony fans care about jrpgs and quality ones not every jrpg Nintendo are receiving many due to 3ds success in japan sony should start acting to win the Japanese market and expand their install base there
This definitely hurts me a lot because street fighter is a game that I've been playing since I was a kid. This third party exclusively is hurting gamers. Me as an Xbox one owner, I have been expecting third party games to be in my console. Timed exclusive would have been a lot more better than what Capcom and Sony did. I thought maybe since Microsoft has more money, they were going to turn it around which they did to a certain extent but honestly I don't think its enough. There are more games on the ps4. PlayStation now is coming out. Microsoft buys Minecraft, titanfall (half game), dead rising 3 (repetitive), sunset overdrive (repetitive and childish), a broken halo game, forza 5 (pay 60 bucks and you gotta grind, repetitive), a significantly less powerful console which they tried to force people to buy the kinect with for 100 bucks more than the competitor. As sad as this sounds but I'm a Xbox one oner with over 20 digital games and I can say that now, enough is enough, time to get a PlayStation 4.
Thats why Japan is rich while the US is broke. We are the fools the support non American made products thats why we the US are broke. GJ america!
it's not exclusive to Sony it's coming the PC which is MICROSOFT other platform, and which it was probably CREATED on which is WINDOW..LOL.so technically Sony did not keep it away from Microsoft. Capcom just put it on Microsoft other system. it just not coming to Xbox...so who looks STUPID????
