Microsoft and Bluehole, Inc., developer of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG), have announced an “extended” partnership for the Xbox One version of the battle royale game.
eh? Interesting . . does this mean it won't appear on the other console?
Its on pc anyone can play
With a good enough PC
A GTX 660 will actually do the trick.
I dont think that answers the question slavish.
The correct answer is no, PUBG won't appear on another console for some time. Seems like it was popular enough for an extension.
He said "other console"
1) That didn't answer Woolly_'s question at all. He never asked about PC, he asked about consoles. 2) Not anyone can play it. The game is awesome, but the optimization is horrendous. I just rebuilt my rig, and I'm running a liquid cooled Ryzen 5 1600x, and a liquid cooled 1080 Ti Sea Hawk. Even with the settings down, and very high fps, the game still stutters and chugs randomly. My friends, who all have more average specs, have had a far worse experience than me.
It'll run great on a 750ti even, the requirements aren't very high. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
anyone with a PC can play* By that logic, I expect this to have zero sales when it inevitably comes to PS4, because "it's on PC anyone can play". Do you agree?
Probably timed exclusive for a year
PUBG isn't fully Xbox exclusive, just being published on Xbox by MS like Rise of the Tomb Raider. https://mobile.twitter.com/... Pretty sure it's exclusive the same way Ark was. Early access is exclusive. Later at retail in both consoles For how long PUBG will be in preview program on Xbone, don't know.
Link doesn't guarantee a better deal can't be brokered during said window .
Ding ding. Yup
I am glad so I don't have to be forced to buy it on Xbone.
Publisher ''For Xbox One.'' Probably timed exclusive
For those who gave me disaggree votes ( i presume Xbone fans who thinks that PUBG is Xbone exclusive only )... Bluehole's statement few months ago : Battlegrounds producer Chang-han Kim reportedly told Inven, “There is something called ‘Game Preview’ on Xbox One. It’s like Early Access for Xbox. We have the game running on that and are in process of polishing it. For the release, we’ll both release it on PlayStation and Xbox.” https://www.thetechgame.com... As i said in my previous post, game will be exclusive to Xbox probably in Early Access program like Ark. Later when games will be finished, it will launch on both PS4 and Xbone. As Jez Corden said in twitter, game will be published by MS on Xbone EDIT : And this one ( and it's new article ) https://news.xbox.com/2017/... "By partnering with Microsoft, our team believes that we will be able to accelerate console development, while maintaining quality across all platforms, as well as giving us access to vast sales, marketing and publishing resources that will help us reach new fans to welcome to the PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds universe." IT'S PRETTY CLEAR THAT GAME WILL COME TO PS4
It will come at some point to PS4. By the time it will launch and the Community on PlayStation, the game probably wont be that big. Right now its the biggest game of the year, a HUGE game to launch only on xbox this year.
We will be launching exclusively on Xbox One in the Xbox Game Preview program later this year and we can’t wait to see all the Xbox fans on the battlefield. The key word here is "launching". After early access it will be on PS4.
Right now it’s pc/Xbox with crossplay. MS has a deal to showcase PUBG enhancements on the one X and crossplay thru win10.
It's on PC. XBone is just getting console early access because of a feeble deal with Microsoft. It's coming to PS4 at a later point.
If that were the case, wouldn't they call it an exclusive with all its letters?
The game will come to ps4... Many compnay like sony and DEEPSILVER publish games on behalf of smash dev teams to give feedback and help the company work on the game to run best on the console. Thats why it is a CONSOLE LAUNCH EXCLUSIVE. It will come to ps4 after xbox one in 6months- 1 year
Most likely. Although Sony's move to deny cross play might discourage some developers from wanting to work with them.
Not really I don't see any developer caring. They make games to sell. They could care less about cross play bud. I don't know 1 developer that feels the feature is more important then the damn game or making money. Sony has also done cross play the most, the longest and on more systems.
LoL you wont see xbox and pc crossplay on this. PC people would rekt xbox kids
Yeah that will never happen
For those saying Cross Play isn't possible doesn't understand how matchmaking works. If they add controller support to the PC version there is no reason they can match make based on the play type. Cross play is the future of MP.
@EDMIX "I don't see any developer caring" Developers also make their games to be played for as long as possible, especially when it comes to multiplayer titles. Cross play would very easily extend the lifespan of any game simply by bolstering the number of players that can play together. Take Titanfall 2 for example - great game, but it released in a terrible window, and doesn't have as many players as it could/should. If there are 700 players on Xbox One and 700 on PS4, would you rather play with just the 700, or with 1400? Doubling the player base would make for quicker loading times and more populated playlists. It's a no-brainer. Developers absolutely want games to sell. But they also want games to be played. Games are an interactive medium - you want people actively interacting with your product almost as much as you want them purchasing it. Also: "I don't see any developer caring" "Sony has also done cross play the most, the longest and on more systems" If no developers care, then why is it being done at all?
You guys actually think devs are stupid enough to say they will not bring their games to a platform with 60 million people, just because Sony says no to cross play with MS? Really, no honestly really? Yes am sure some devs stopped bringing their games to Xbox 360 when MS rejected cross play with Sony last gen? Right? A game company is in business to make money and they are not going to leave out the platform with the most people.
Timed boys chill
Hasn't really gone well for most companies that align themselves with Microsoft so best of luck Bluehole.
I think they picked the wrong horse.
I can't stand these play on words. Hopefully i live to see the day where companies can just speak the true true.. Otherwise why even listen anymore or care about anything they say?
That's kind of like saying "I'm waiting for hell to freeze over".
NICE. Smart decision to get behind this game, Microsoft.
who.. cares. if u have a decent pc or laptop ur good to go.
do you have decent PC and no laptop will run this unless it's a high-end one I have no problem running http://imgur.com/yr1S2fe do you?
If you ever play this game you would know it is a very demanding title, your average pc wouldn't able to run it at 60fps which is vital for these kind of games. But yeah who cares right.
And if you don't? Are you still not allowed to care?
Good move by MS, it is definitely the game of the moment and looks to have legs.
It's not a console seller anyway. You definitely won't be hearing someone say: Oh PUBG is out, time to buy a xbox one. The only reason it's not on PS4 yet is because Sony doesn't really like early access games. Pretty sure the developers probably went to Sony first and were shutdown because of that.
smh. Its already on PC. MS should have spent their money on something else, like a new team, new IP, something that will actually move units..
The biggest selling new ip of the year (8 million plus) and it's a waste to spend money to secure it? Lol ed, I thought I heard it all, and then you come along and say something like this
"The biggest selling new ip of the year (8 million plus) and it's a waste to spend money to secure it?" MS bought the IP? MS bought the team? Unless they can say the 100% own this game, this isn't a good deal. This sounds like timed junk, money would have been better spent on something THEY OWN! You can spin it any way you feel, but do they own the IP? I don't see anything about them buying the team, I'm reading "partnership" NOTHING about OWNERSHIP OF THE IP OR TEAM! Sooooo I'd see that as money wasted. Its a IP that clearly is selling on PC...soooooo I Don't see how that will move XONE units already selling MILLIONS on PC Me playing this on PC isn't going to sell a XBONE, just the opposite.
EDMIX if you do not like it, don't by it troll and keep playing it on pc
It's true tho. No one will buy a 500 dollar console for PUBG
Yeah but they will buy it for other games. Its not like Xbox has only one game coming out. Oh and Edmix hate everything that isn't on PlayStation. It isn't new.
well, i did buy a 400$ one just for persona so tell how do you know that no one is going to buy a 500$ console just for this game are you assuming everyone has your low financial status?
@Kun- Nope. you simply assume so. I own a 3DS, plan to buy a Switch, own a gaming PC, own a PS4. I have no reason to buy a XONE for a game I can already buy on PC...sooo yea. It makes very little sense for me to spend that money on such a game. This simply sounds like a bad business move on MS part. They'd do better buying the team and the IP to fully secure the IP, all this looks like to most of us is timed deal.... You simply assume anyone that disagrees with this MUST be a fanboy. I can play this game right now on PC and choose not to. I mean...I can play most of MS titles since they put them on PC =) Don't know what that has to do with Playstation.
lol, who said I didn't like it? I can just play it on PC... What I'm saying is the deal is a dud. This is moving units for MS? A multipatform game? Did they buy the IP? Did they buy the team? MS doesn't need timed deals, they need teams they own and IP they own to move real units. I don't see anyone spending real money to buy a XONE to actually play this.
So it's Published by Microsoft much like Rise of the Tomb Raider was published like Microsoft....BUT also like Dead Rising 1 & 3 were published by Microsoft. Let's be honest, this is a great business decision by Microsoft but I don't think any amount of money can stop devs putting their games on PS4. As always, deals won't be fully explained because they don't want people to say "hey if you just wait a year you'll be able to play the game on the console you already own, and not have to buy another one" that won't get them the sales they want.
Bingo. They should have just spent that money on a owning a new IP or buying a new team like IO Interactive.
YES! MORE MICROTRANSACTIONS!
Here's to a better deal being brokered
Somehow they are carefully circling around the word "exclusive". I wonder why that is?
The dev already said on Twitter that it will be on PS4 when it comes out of early access. Not a bad thing for PS4 owners. Let the PC and Xbox community test it for you :) It'll be less buggy and more complete by the time you get it.
Game kinda sucks anyways.
