During a livestream on TwitCasting, 5pb. President Chiyomaru Shikura announced that the former Xbox One exclusive visual novel Chaos;Child will be released for PS4, PS3 and PS Vita
'bout time 5pb came to their senses.
Xbox fans reaction: Shrugging their shoulders If it were a ps4 exclusive making its way onto a competitors console PS fans reaction: Eat dung and burn in hell!!!!
Actually, the Xbox fans would be mocking PlayStation fans if they gained an exclusive....
are you new here? or??
This is so non-news worthy. This is a Japanese indie animie game. A game that can be played on 3DS or smart phones. I might have seen some screen shots earlier, but had no idea it was X1 exclusive. I am not bashing the game, as it may turn out to be a fun game, but there is really zero hype behind it, and I have never heard anyone mention this a game to look forward to. I think the developer would be doing themselves a huge disservice releasing this as an X1 exclusive. Should focus on portables with this one. it would fine a much more welcoming audience there. No one owns X1 in Japan.
@Bigpappy: Indie? 5bp./Mages. is a rather big company that works on games, anime and manga. They're very popular and they're definitely not indies. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Not that being indie is bad, but you're really off here.
^ Dude I know you just want to get into the skin of Sony fans in this site but as it has already been explained. The company who is making this game is not an indie. At least lets get that right. So when you do your console war stuff. You won't look like you don't know what your talking about. ;) Just a friendly reminder. Carry on, Forum warrior! Edit: Umm... sorry no, now you are just trying to make a spin of things. Its not an indie we all know what an indie is and why they are called an indie. This is not one of them. Yes, it is Japanese only and if you know Japanese games. This ain't a one you can call an indie.
@praxx you get very upset easily; don't you? would you like a warm blanket and a plate of cookies?
Xbox fans just so used to losing their "exclusives". or having their exclusive be on PC or being timed.
Your biases are showing.
Way a troll... I don't get these kinds of comments. Why does everything have to be an arguement? Can't you just talk about the subject instead of making everything a fight for dominance? All it does is point out your fanboy loyalty, and get you less bubbles... OT this was probably a business decision, and one that to me makes sense. Glad I have something else to keep my eyes on now.
A quick look at any article proves your post wrong so why bother?
The reason they're shrugging is because this isn't most Xbox gamer's type of game...
So what nameshamegame? You got nothing better in life to do than be bitter in every xbox story?
I am honestly shruggin my shoulders as this is the first time i've even heard of this game but who cares.
You're right. They were freaking out about the trademark of BB yesterday.
What the heck is this?
@Abrial Kinda shows what a lot of Xbox fans think of these niche anime games on their system when one says 5pb is an indie company, and others not caring one bit because they never once heard of it. For those that don't know, 5pb is one of the bigger Japanese publishers, but their games don't get localized a lot, and it's usually Atlus or NISA that picks them up for NA/EU release. They have a ton of popular anime franchises that they regularly make games for. I personally found it facepalm material that 5pb would go exclusive with a few of their games on the X1. They had to know their fan base was going to be elsewhere. That's why MS has such a hard time in Japan. People know that the games that appeal to the majority of Japanese gamers are eventually going to make it onto another system, and be pretty sparse on the X1 itself.
Xbox fans don't care about this!!! This isn't even big news. Who even knew what that crap was? Any PS fan thinking this is big news must still believe in the Easter bunny and wears a onesy
WCxAchlemist.....bro I read your post and vomited, that was some YouTube level trolling right there.
@gamenamefame You guys always talk about FF14, street fighter 5, black light, ect ect when you talk about exclusives. last I checked they are all out on PC right now
Lol you must be neq here lol you'll learn the hard wsy the legions ate going to have you for lunch You going learn today
There should be a bub down button for, 'Butthurt'.
You should get a ban for your comment PraxxtorCruel as it was obvious blatant trolling, but as you are clearly pro xbone and this is N4G Im sure you'll be just fine, they dont mind that kind of trolling here at all, do carry on.
"This is so non-news worthy. This is a Japanese indie animie game" Really, BigPappy? THAT desperate to downplay this, eh?
oh look, another fanboy trying so desperate to explain why this side's fanboy is better than the other side.
Sorry but April Fools day isn't for a few more days.
First time I even heard about the game or the Company
oh this the game i was looking for.. impressive
the thing these days with the sales of PS4 most devs cant afford not to be on Sonys platform.
There was really no hype for this anime novel when it was announced for the XB1. It's still not a big deal coming to the PS4. I think more gamers were surprised to find out OlliOlli and Shovel Knight were both coming to the XBox One, as those games were pretty well received. Most Indie type games will end up on all the platforms anyways. Just enjoy them when they are released to you platform.
It's not an indie game, so why are you talking about indie games?
@MRMagoo. I don't really consider an anime novel as a full retail game. Will this even be released in retail stores? There are other Indie games like No Man's Sky and Mighty #9 that could be considered more a retail game then this Chaos;Child crap. If they really wanted to sell copies of this game "book" they should have just released it on the PS3 and Xbox 360 in Japan.
Now if Mages actually brought any of their games to North America this would be great.
That would be awesome news. I love their games, but I know they are pretty niche. They stand a better chance on the PS platform, or even on the DS here in the states. I don't think any of these niche anime games have done well on the Xbox brand anywhere. I think those initial JRPG's did decent on the 360, but they would have done much better on the PS3, particularly since there weren't many JRPG's on the PS3 early on.
It makes sense. Every developer will want to bring there game to the very best platform that is PS4. The PS4 sales speak for themselves. There isn't much point in releasing an exclusive on a system that can't sell even with a discount. Crystal dynamics and square enix must be ruing the day they signed that deal. PS4 will probably have a 30m install base by the time it comes out.
Selling minimum 5 million of Xboxes in the first year is FAR from not selling, wtf are you talking about? You Sony fanboys can try saying that all you want but your flat ass wrong when the Xbox one sold more then the 360 did in the same time span, and that was more then the ps3 at the time too. So stop talking about things you clearly know nothing about
Kind of seen this coming with a pure exclusive Japanese game, the low number of install base for the X1 in japan = less people to buy your game Not good business as literally either going into a loss or not making pofit
Ow noes lets start a petition. ChaosChild should stay exclusive boohoo.
Game never interested me, not sure what you mean by coming to there sense. Sounds like the PS4 brigade trying to claim victory over small titles not many people were going to buy anyway.
This is no doubt thanks to Xbox failing in Japan. We may see more of this is MS cannot find a way to sell more consoles in Japan as this is very Japan niche.
Let the port begging begins!
5pb is now driving in smart mode
I think this will do well mainly in Japan
It failed to reach top 50 upon launch in Japan. So porting game to PS3 and PS3 makes sense from a financial point of view.
PS Vita, PS3 and PS4 Fixed. You are welcome.
Is this a visual novel?
What's the point of all these comments? It won't be released outside of Japan anyway.
And what does that matter? I can just make a Japanese PSN account and download it.
Actually JAST USA published Steins;Gate in the west. Who is to say other 5pb games won't come either?
Actually Steinsgate is coming to NA on PS3 and Vita in 2015. http://www.hardcoregamer.co... PQube will be releasing it.
And you know how? It wouldn't be the first time a 5pb game is released out of Japan.
I accept your correction on non-indie title and I guess it is a change that should be reported, since the game was initially exclusive. The rest of the comment stands though.
good maybe now it can sell more then 5 copies
It'll sell 10 more copies.
LOL I don't think the Xbox One sold over 100,000 units in Japan yet. Is anyone expecting any game for that console to sell well in Japan? Bwahahahahahaaaa
We're at 49,000 now.
with under 500 console a week reaching 100k is somewhat waiting till new xbox console
Releasing a game as exclusive to xbone in japan is pretty much commercial suicide.
The console which has the largest fanbase will have these things happen more and more often. It so happens that Ps4 is running away with the fanbase size. So this is gonna become alot more common and Xbox will have to spend a lot more money to try and keep their games exclusive. Sony can just sit back and pay nothing while developers flock to their huge fanbase for the sake of sheer exposure.
Xbox exclusive means on Xbox first clearly.
First wins usually. Not in this case though.
Having this on Vita and PS3 should gain them some sales at the very least.
LOL at this comment getting disagrees. It like literally saying "The Sky is blue, and the grass is green" and getting disagrees.
Hopefully it comes out by Christmas so they have something to play.
thats cool we got a shitty game called octodad was that suppose to be ps exclusive?
Well, who can blame them??? The xbone is deep in a hole somewhere in Japan, so exclusivity was a bad move...in the first place. They are trying to fix that, why not?
Awesome, cool-looking game.
Well judging by the reaction to their past X1 exclusives, nobody is going to miss them. When I first saw their games being announced I thought "Really , MS?". They should have spent that money on more worthwhile japanese exclusives...like some actual games instead of these "visual novels". Oh well, you live and you learn, MS. No more japanese visual novels. Xbox owners dont want them. unless its by telltale games, of course :)
So its possible that Psycho Pass may get the same treatment as Chaos Child? Enjoyed the Anime series.
