No Man's Sky is one of the most anticipated indie games of 2015. Scheduled to launch on PlayStation 4 and PC sometime this year, the game will not be coming on the Xbox One.
It will come to Xbox in time. Guaranteed.
Not if Sony secures it like they did other indie titles. We don't know.
Its coming to PC that's something Sony wouldn't let happen just like Resogun. Hello games doesn't want to sell off their IP I'm sure.
coming to pc as well. sony probably wouldn't let that happen if they did.. hence no bloodborne, driveclub and the order etc not being available for pc either.
Ugh... star citizen please!!! I have a pc and don't even want no man's sky. A game that devs are scared to talk about lol I rather have a multi crew star trek cinematic experience in an open world. No man's just looks like a mindecrafty experience. No thanks if so.
To the debate above, Street fighter V is coming to the PC also but will not be on the XB1. There is no way to know if NMS will or will not be on the XB1 at this time anything we say is simply speculation.
Sony doesn't have the money to keep studios open let alone keep Microsoft from getting the game.
It'll come for sure. in the meantime we have elite dangerous! :)
Elite Dangerous has already been confirmed to be heading to PS4 according to Frontier boss David Braben's tweet: http://www.vg247.com/2015/0...
Glad to hear that MS and PS owners will get to play both on their consoles. That's great!
"We" have elite dangerous What does that even mean. People need to get a grip
@uptownsoul I already knew about that. Ps4 owners will probably waiting about as long to play elite as X1 owners, no mans sky. "ThinkThink + 1h ago Glad to hear that MS and PS owners will get to play both on their consoles. That's great!" Yeah..You're speaking my language bro! In the end we (xbox,PC or PS4) all get to enjoy these games at some point. The two titles are comparable in certain aspects. As for me. I just love my space games. Ill be playing elite AND no mans sky this year, which is cool. @Lore "What does that even mean. People need to get a grip" Talk about sensitive.lol.. You misread my comment for your own reasons. Thats your business. Im said what I said and only think think, understood it clearly, because he doesnt have some weird defense mechanism going on. Because he is not a fanboy. sinspirit "It's already confirmed a console exclusive." They said console DEBUT. That means timed exclusivity in laymen terms. There is a reason for that choice of words. "Hello Games has greatly expressed their gratitude for Sony and how they are the reason they are where they're at today." They got where they are because they have a promising game on their hands. That was the case the moment we all saw it. BEFORE they got into bed with sony. For a DEBUT. You are really having a hard time with this aint you? Sony get credit for beating MS to the deal. That is all. Those two guys put themselves on the map. "There is nothing confirmed, except the fact it's almost 100% confirmed PlayStation and PC only" Thats usually the way it works with this sort of deal. have you learned nothing from those timed X360 exclusives last gen? The game IS coming to XB1 and it will happen within weeks if not months of a PC release. And it will be a port of the PC version. Remember I said this. Bookmark this comment if you like. But mark my word...its coming to X1.
Keep praying for those great PS4 games to come to X1. May your dreams come true, while I know I will get them.
it probably will, but xb1 owners are going to be waiting years.
Probably closer to 6 months but yes, they will have to wait.
Nah.it's not going to be that long.if it is,it would be a waste of time and resources cos by then there will be far better games out and xbox one owners would have moved on. Anyways im glad to hear we will be getting many more announcements at e3.they already announced so many indie games at gdc wasnt expecting any announcements at e3.
@ThinkThink I expect 6 month for the PC version about a year for a Xone version.That is if Sony don't try to buy the studio if the game is a real hit.Which I am sure they are already in talks about doing.I know I would if I ran Sony, the game might not impress some people but it has me.
@ Christocolus "it's not going to be that long.if it is,it would be a waste of time and resources cos by then there will be far better games out and xbox one owners would have moved on" Much like with Tomb Raider and Ps4 owners.
It's already confirmed a console exclusive. Hello Games has greatly expressed their gratitude for Sony and how they are the reason they are where they're at today. Hello Games has said they haven't touched the X1 dev kit. There was an article months ago of a Microsoft representative talking about No Man's Sky but he had not gotten into contact with Hello Games whatsoever and was talking about it to get their attention, and they are doing it again here. There is nothing confirmed, except the fact it's almost 100% confirmed PlayStation and PC only. Either way, everyone needs to stop speculating things without reading. Nintendo can talk about No Man's Sky as well. It doesn't make it any likelier. It's just talk. Last time Microsoft talked about this game it was purely for attention and HG said there were no plans and they haven't talked with them.
I think it will as well. I have no problem with games being timed exclusive. There are quite a few pros for doing so. Indy games in general it tends to get them *ALOT* of media attention which is hard for them to do at times with out a publisher paying/backing them. As long as it comes out on other platforms later a lot of people win. Some will say the gamer's don't but why? Because you have to wait? In the end its the best hybrid way of doing things now days. As in the best balance between the business itself and what the consumers get.
Any logical person can understand this. Games like these or indie games in general usually end up on other platforms. They wanna get this game out to as many people as possible at the end of the day. Elite Dangerous and Space engineers are guaranteed timed games. So logically No Man's Sky will release on X1 in the future.
I agree ice, i'll try to reach out to hello games and see if they would come on to talk about the game. Chris made it seem though as if, it will be coming to xbox at some point. I asked about axiom verge as well after the recording, think they are working out something to bring that and transistor to xbox one.
I am not sure if elite dangerous makes it to consoles. and. bloody space engineers still in early access. The damn developer is making another early access title called.medieval engineers. So the chances of these games on console are rather slim; however, killing floor 2 will make it to PS4 along with Among the sleep, and distance.
What, exactly, convinces you strongly enough to guarantee that statement?
well what I can say is that, usually if a game is truly exclusive, companies and execs know. They usually keep this to themselves and let the company announce when it will release. But what from what I understand, it's not an exclusive is truly up to hello games. If they want the game on xbox one, not sony. So unless they buy the ip or the company, xbox fans may see it hit the xbox one later. But in the meantime elite dangerous will be timed exclusive, which should hold it down for fans of the space shooter genre.
There is absolutely nothing to indicate that it is coming to XB1 ever. It may, but so far there has been not even a hint of it. So, good luck with waiting.
look i am fine and hope in 3 months its on xbox one, so xbox gamers can enjoy it too. Just like i hope tomb raider is on ps4 soon after release being exclusives doesn't provide us any incentive or extra pleasure out of the game we are a gaming community so let's think and look out for each other instead of being spoiled little kids who says nananannanana
Gamingbolt?! >_< Yo no leo esa mierda
I don't give 1 s***! If No Man's Sky even released or not! I didn't buy into Next-gen for games like that. That's a $10 filler game when you're in between AAA Great 1080p 60fps games!
Not if Sony signed a publishing deal.
Yawn...been down this news road already. Gaming bolt pulling others interviews for their own news, now that's cutting edge!
Yeah man! they are so good at cutting stories up to make them in to multi click articles so we can all feel like we didn't already read the whole story 5 articles ago! /s
I like this site (n4g) because it allows me to get almost all my gaming info in one spot, but damn I hate some of the sites that flood this one with garbage articles and the sensational headlines. "Mindblowing, Earth Shattering, Fantastic!!! AND MORE!!!"...then you click on the article and its a single tweet that some clown somehow turned into half a paragraph spread out on 9 pages of speculation and "take this with a grain of salt" BS. Or the classic move of writing 20 articles a day on the same game instead of putting all that info in a single article. Really wish I had the option to block them from showing up on the feed
They feed this fan war, and we feed them and their families. I am sure they literally sit back and enjoy all the craziness their articles cause.
I wonder if Devs can get past this by releasing a game on xbox with a new character or ship then once it is on the console can they later offer that item as free dlc on PlayStation console. I guess they would have to sign something that says this item will never be released on another platform.
Sure ...I would also imagine it depends on "what" it is. Shovel Knights is including the Battle Toads as a boss...that will only be in the X1 version. I believe the Sony version has Kratos if I am not mistaken. That content would never go to either competitor.
This Clause thing is a non issue, if those making a game would just talk to those at [email protected] instead of trying to drum up sympathy . As for the NMS Game looks nice but not waiting around .
Trying to drum up sympathy is a great way to get people talking about your game though. Yeah, it's a little sleazy but when you're an independent developer anything you can do to get people talking about your game is a good thing.
I don't understand the disagrees with your post... Fact: Chara keeps telling devs to talk to MS if they have a concern. Fact: There has been PS4 games come to XB1 later. Fact: Negotiating whether as a third party or indie dev through the media is bargaining in bad faith. you have a problem, deal with who you have the problem with. Do not proxy through the media.
I just want to know more about this game. They talked tech, but not gameplay. What is the premise? Hopefully you can do something fun on all these procedurally generated planets.
What's not to get? You fly a ship and you shoot at your enemies. Bang bang. You want to change that Bang bang into more of a boom then you mine for materials and upgrade your guns. You survive long enough you journey to the center of the universe to discover... the end credits?
God sake with these timed exclusives. This will go to xbox and tomb raider will go to ps4. What is the point in making people wait for third party stuff? Ms and sony should use that money for more important stuff.
So the guy is saying that if you put a game out on PS4 first... you can bring it to X1 later, but we expect some exclusive content?
Why not? Lots of devs have exclusive content, like the exclusive missions in Assassin's Creed. It could be skins, weapons, armor, vehicles, or whatever. Nothing major is necessary.
If MS wants extra content, they should pay for it. Using it as a requirement to allow the game on X1 is just another bitch move.
Sorry, kurruptor, but it's not your business to decide. Companies, like Tecmo with the Sigma series of Ninja Gaiden, do it to garner additional sales from previous owners. What type of extra stuff is still up to the developer to decide. If MS wants to, they can change again too.
Not our business? We are consumers, we're allowed to have an opinion and call them out. Was it none of our business about all the policies they originally announced? I guess we shouldn't have said anything. Microsoft's stance on indies is that it is all about Microsoft and their money. They don't care about the gamers.
No Man's Sky could eventually end up on Xbox One at the end of the exclusivity period with Sony. Joe Danger debuted on PS3 and ended up on the 360 more than a year later with extra content. NMS may have a similar exclusivity period.
No mans sky will most likely make me want a PS4. I will need to see more. Exploring looks fun, but will there be planets with cultures, are there any story elements beyond basic side mission type stuff.
No man's sky doesn't really do anything for me. Not interested tbph.
Considering the line-up this year on XO, The absence of No Man's Sky on XO won't be noticed, let alone missed. that said, it will show up sometime on XO. Not my cup of tea though..
Considering Hello Games other game came to Xbox 360 and it was stated as a PS3 exclusive too. Not to mention it's coming to PC also. Not to mention no one has flat out aid from ether Sony or Hello Games that No Man's Sky will never appear on another console...at least nothing I have read. Sony doesn't own the IP and they didn't fund the game (I don't ink again), no doubt that it will appear on Xbox One later.
Either way, this game will only be truly enjoyable on newer, higher end PCs... Consoles simply do not have the computational power to generate the scenes procedurally, fast enough to fully eliminate object "pop-in". Just check out the trailers revealed at the Playstation experience. Pop-in is INTENSE, and kind of breaks the mood. All that being said, this looks like the single most incredible / amazing / (insert powerful adjective) project to happen to video games since the invention of the wheel :). Whatever equipment console is required to play it... I WILL BUY IT!
PC master race. trolling again. pathetic.
no man's sky we still don't know what we could do in the game... :/
Games like this don't sell on Xbox consoles. First the Xbox One has half the install base as the PS4. Second the under 12 million XboxOne install base are majority the hardcore FPS Halo and COD fans. Games like No Mans Sky are better off releasing on PS4 and PC.
"second the under 12 million xbox one install base are majority the hardcore FPS halo and COD fans". what? Look at PSN, tell me the top games played on PSN. FPS is just a popular genre across the board, especially last gen. NMS is better of releasing to as MANY platforms as possible for exposure and profit.
Why exactly is No Man's Sky one of the most anticipated games. It sounds far worse then Elite, and Elite is bad- unfortunately I own it for PC. Procedural generation has never bee well and trying to make the biggest game of all time by a factor of 1,000 with 10 people?
This game's concept seems over ambitious to the point of unbelievable, but hopefully this game will come through. Either way I want to try this out for PC or whenever it does get to Xbox One which would be more convenient for me.
Basically Charla wants it but is too much of a snob to talk to the developer first. Even for a game as prominent as this... they still have to come begging.
if the xbox1 is so powerful why does MS have the parity clause because it is not as powerful as the ps4 and they dont want any game looking better that is on there console and someone else's that is why no mans sky wont come on xbox1 straight away as a deal here and there does wonders.
I'm sure Microsoft will have lots of new games to show. Like Halo and Gears. And also Halo and Gears. Then probably Halo and Gears. After that, definitely Halo and Gears. Oh and did I mention Halo and Gears? Yeah, Halo and Gears.
Indie games will launch on what ever platform their developers want it to launch on. partnerships may be in place to secure it on a platform for a period of time, but ultimately independent developers if they own the ip, they can bring the game to what ever platform they want. In rare cases do Indie IPs big or small stay exclusive to one platform, if the platform holder declares console exclusive ie Ori or Transistor then it'll pop up on another console in the future. Im not sure if the verbiage Sony has amused suggests that No Man's Sky is console exclusive to PS4, but I'm sure they are trumpet ing that they have it first. Needless to say this is still one game I'm hugely skeptical about. It's one of those games I have to try out before I can pass a verdict.
