Possible new info on Star Wars Battlefront.
Now thats funny. :)
"As you can see from the image below (pointed out by bravoIntel), the trailer that was posted at Major Nelson a.k.a. Larry Hryb has the Sony branding. But if you look at post now, it has been replaced. It could have been a mistake, but who knows." Thats what i meant by funny.
I noticed that too on the xbox youtube channel, must have been a mistake, although I didn't really think it was funny, perhaps a little silly...
Honest mistake and nowhere near as bad as the photo shopped Watch Dogs trailer where the PlayStation buttons were blurred out.
Microsoft the one guy that never gets the invite... DICE: Hey Sony I want you do come to my party Sony: Yea man, let's do this! M$: Well DICE, heh it's the weekened, you doing anything? DICE: Nah I'm just with relatives helping out.. M$: Hey Sony what's up pal? You doing anything over the weekened? Sony: Uh I gotta uh take it easy, docs orders...see ya next week tho buddy! M$: :(
Sony has exclusive marketing for this title, don't expect to see much tied to Xbox One in terms of advertising. They will pushing Halo 5, very hard. SWBF along with Black Ops 3 and an unannounced PS4 exclusive is going to be huge for PS4 this holiday season.
Black Ops 3?? What are you talking about?
PS4 has advertising rights for Black Ops 3. Commercials, bundles, etc.
I'm not so sure about black ops 3... Sony has never particularly been able to land partnerships with Activision for COD. And I don't see that changing.
If I was Sony I'd let COD warm the bench this go round. Actually I'd let MS have it back. Game's more stale than a six month old fart.
I think you're mistaken about the BO3
Third parties in general aren't as eager to work with Microsoft as they once were. This goes for exclusives and marketing.
All Microsoft has to say is "Play it first on Xbox One" since Sony idiotically refused to have EA Access on the PS4, now that they have nothing to release in the holiday season they're latching onto EA to carry them through it, and anything Sony announces at E3 won't be out for at least another year, it's always been that way, you can disagree all you want N4G but this is exactly what's happening, I wouldn't expect people to agree with what I said on a site as biased as this one anyway, doesn't make my comment any less valid though.
Technically, the marketing budget for Bloodborne and The Order was just pushed from the holidays to this Spring as the games were delayed into this year. The next Uncharted also got pushed until next year, so that leaves MGS and Battlefront. Ironically, you can play Battlefront first on Xbox One. I think MS strategically figured they can allocate that money other places, and Sony thought it was worth it. They are probably all right, and what does it matter anyways for readers here whom the vast majority already have the console of their preference. This is just childish bickering.
@Jalva you have a point. But it is not like Sony cant change there mind about EA access. Or if it is anything like Battlefield Hardline at last E3. PS4 and PC players where able to try the Alpha while the XB1 could not. Similer thing could happen and PS4 players could get into the Battlefront Alpha while XB1 owners can't.
@Jalva Clutching at them mighty straws again are we. a few things to note: -Microsoft can't legally make a statement of service on behalf of EA -Sony does not require EA advertising partnership to sell more Units than an Xbox one -Sony has exclusive games planned for holiday 2015 You're wrong about everything. I don't know whether to take you seriously or laugh at you.
@Jalva "anything Sony announces at E3 won't be out for at least another year, it's always been that way" Is that so? Bloodborne, released nine months after being announced at E3. LittleBigPlanet 3, released five months after being announced at E3. Never mind other games like Gran Turismo 6 that were announced with well under a year to go before release. Facts can be such a pain in the ass.
Personally expecting a proper Ratchet reveal and release this year so that will be great news. Definitely interested to see if something else comes up from Guerilla or Santa Monica though. Also, everyone should buy Persona 5. That series deserves success more than any of the shooters we've already played in a new skin.
The fact that a mutiplat game sells more on one console vs the other because of marketing shows how lame and unaware console gamers are lol Even though we have internet. Anything usually supported by the masses is usually lame anyway.
hardly, considering ms has the marketing deal for witcher 3 and a month from release , were yet to see a single ps4 screenshot its all fair, shitty , but fair. im still surprised ms let sony bag the marketing for fall's biggest multiplats twice in a row now. especially since its EA this time. sony didnt even take their ea access service didnt ea give 3 free games on playstation as well for no apparent reason? also isnt tf2 multiplat now? wonder what happened
It's pretty simple really. Sony offered a better deal for the marketing rights or MS didn't throw their hat in the ring. Not much more than that. MS has a full plate this holiday and has a marketing budget each quarter. Buying the rights for battlefront would have meant less money for halo, tomb raider and forza.
It probably also has to do with the fact that Microsoft's flagship game (Halo 5) is releasing this fall, and they're probably already planning to spend a tonne of money promoting that title. I'm sure that if they didn't have Halo 5 coming out in the fall, then they would have fought for marketing rights.
@tinynuggins - MS may have a "full plate" this holiday season with Halo, Tomb Raider and Forza...but lets be honest. The only other AAA retail game I think they have to market this entire year is Witcher 3. Marketing budget is not a factor. As of right now, Sony will be marketing Bloodborne, The Order 1886, MLB15 The Show, Batman Arkham Knight, Metal Gear Solid V and now even Star Wars Battlefront. Sonys plate has been just as full as MS, but that didnt stop them from going out and getting another marketing deal.
PS4 sold 20 million consoles. thats what happened.
It's funny that even without advertising PS4 version will outsell Xbone version.
It was probably a mistake, but a small chuckle nonetheless lol It's not that big of a deal really. My brother said he didn't even notice the Playstation logo sequence at the end since he left the video page before that. I'm sure that was probably the case for whoever updated the site with the video.
"The insider also spoke to a number of journalists who saw the gameplay footage and he was able to confirm that the level of graphical quality seen in the trailer are one and the same." I find this hard to believe. That and being 60fps just seems impossible. I'd love to be wrong though.
take a look at bf4 on ps4 with less players no cross gen less destruction infinite budget and more importantly , seemingly high level of optimizations specifically for ps4(considering thats what they chose to show the game on , in its first showing) its not exactly impossible. were barely into current gen exclusive development, witcher 3 and batman ak should set a much better precedent .
I just hope they chose PS4 as the leading platform so we don't have to deal with weird resolution and frame dips
Reminds me of PSN using a font designed by Insomniac for XO's Sunset Overdrive. http://n4g.com/news/1608007...
Or MS using KZ:SF to promote the X1 http://www.sonyrumors.net/2... Think that's a much more direct comparison to use...but I'm not a troll so what would I really know?
It doesn't remind you of that at all. That's just you doing a really poor job at reaching.
