Although the game was released all the way back in June on PS4, Blue Estate will finally be coming to Xbox One.
Man this is like the third time this month the Xbox One version of another game was randomly released way after its initial release on other platforms. What's with that?
Parity, devs have to ask MS to release it after the fact before they can begin work on it. Otherwise if they say no then the devs just wasted a ton of money for nothing.
Pub fund, Sony gives advancements to indie devs in exchange for exclusivity or timed exclusive rights. After the deal is up then the game can go to which ever system these devs want.
Pub fund is to fund new games for playstaion platforms. Plus, this game was on PC first.
Uuuum, unless I'm going crazy...this game is not on the PC but is strictly on PS4.
Betterssz latessz dhan neversszz..I guess;) On a serious note..what the hell happened to you Kilmer? you used to be awesome in Heat;)
Better later than never? Right?
At the time they found it easier to release it on PS4 first. MS is still complicated when it comes to indies.
Yeah it's incredible how being given money for an 8 month exclusive deal makes things less complicated.
Wait, Blue Estate is NOT allowed to be released on XB1 due to the parity clause, someone should let the devs know! They may just be wasting their time getting it ready for the system.
With many games like contrast coming out on the X1 (Which came out console-exclusive to PS first), I think microsoft are changing this policy over time. When your in lead, it's easy to apply such restrictions, but when trailing behind, might as well take it even if it's a bit later. I think X1 owners shouldn't be limited in their indie titles because of some stupid parity clause. Let's hope all those exceptions makes Microsoft completely remove such clause.
Lol...do you honestly believe that they would make the game without getting ok from MS. Come on guys.
Meh. IGN and GameSpot each have the game a 3 out 10. Doesn't sound like Xbox is missing much
I just wish the game wasn't controlled by your controller movement. Unless they changed it. I got it found out the controller thing and quit.
Actually, its a pretty fun game with the Dualshock 4, controls well, looks great, and is an entertaining on-rails shooter. Don't believe every review you read.
I bought it for $2 or something that cheap around Christmas. Still haven't played it though. But I mean, $2.
I can't imagine it being very fun without motion control. Still hilarious, but it would be boring with regular controls.
Funny I actually considered this game one of THE ps4 exclusives... I know it reviewed poorly but I liked the subject material, and that was what most of the reviewers were offended by. If I can't have a crazy sickaz video game every once in awhile then what is the point of a video game?
Fun game although control is tricky. Time Crisis comes to mind.
13$ and 20% off is not a bad deal, 20$ was the initial price on ps4 which was way to expensive.
I have both a PS4 and XB1, and I got Blue Estate when it came out. It was a fun little game, but not worth $20. I don't have much faith in the kinect controls for it though. I do not find it precise enough, and it will probably make the game more frustrating than it should be.
Fun little game. Don't know if what Xbox owners have to pay but I got it for $2 or $3 on sale.
Well, in comparison, most indie games are on Steam a full year before they get released on PS4. Does that make them any less attractive? Not to most people.
