Cool but isn't Xbox 1 risky profits?

trumpwonstopcrying26d ago

I'm willing to bet that mircosoft is going to help fund an xbox port of this game. Otherwise it makes no sense to have it on the console because sales will be minimal. I would say it's definitely low risk if this is the case for Sega/Sammy and Microsoft probably isn't losing much.

rdgneoz325d ago

The architecture for the PS4 and xbone are both x86, so it's not much really to port from one to the other compared to previously with the PS3 and 360 (with the PS3 using the cell processor) or with the Switch using ARM. It's more a question is a JRPG going to really sell on the xbone and be worth the time.

I'm going to buy it for Switch, but if I didn't I'd be buying it for XB1.

Not at all, especially considering this new entry on a console is risky which is why the past sequels have been on portables and not actual consoles.

XiNatsuDragnel25d ago

Sales wise Xbox is bad when it comes Japanese supported games

NoPeace_Walker25d ago (Edited 25d ago )

Maybe Sega wanted a version for 4K TV owners? Whar better console to do that than the X.

Last_Boss25d ago

That is not going to factor into these games overall enjoyment.

gangsta_red25d ago

Sales wise, the original game didn't do well on PS3 either despite being praised by critics.

This is why production was switched to handhelds. Hopefully now though it will get the attention this game deserves.

XiNatsuDragnel25d ago

Last gen but PS4 and Switch have higher sales than Xbox sorry to say, but I'm happy than Microsoft have to pay these companies ports like Trump said

gangsta_red25d ago

"Last gen but PS4 and Switch have higher sales than Xbox..."

I don't see what that has to do with games succeeding, especially with a lot of Japanese games failing on PS4 despite these higher sales the console has.

Valkyria Chronicles is still a risk for Sega on any console, but I am glad they are taking it.

guyman25d ago (Edited 25d ago )

"I don't see what that has to do with games succeeding, especially with a lot of Japanese games failing on PS4 despite these higher sales the console has"

Quickly give me a cost breakdown and example of a ps4 exclusive Japanese developed game where the developer went over their allowable budget, cost exceeded sales and as a result, the studio closing down/down sizing.

STFU with the bullshit.

gangsta_red25d ago

Evidence of what exactly? Gravity Rush, Last Gaurdian, Star Ocean and many other Japanese games failed on the PS4. Is that what you're asking?

I'm not really entirely sure what point you're trying to make? That a console with higher sales automatically means the game will do great? Especially a game like VC that failed on the PS3.

Sega is taking a risk regardless on what platform it's on. They are actually upping their chances of success by releasing it on as many platforms as possible

XiNatsuDragnel25d ago

Actually those sell good on PS4 what are you smoking any weed? Over 1 m is garbage? Any tangible evidence with that claim.

mockzer025d ago

Whatever makes this game more profitable, I'm all for! I want as many Valkyria chronicle games as possible!!! The first game is one of my favorite games of all time... So happy right now! 😁

gangsta_red25d ago

I really don't want this to be about sales of other games since this isn't the topic.

http://wegotthiscovered.com...

A small sample, I'm sure you can google the rest and see for yourself that the others i mentioned didn't burn up the charts.

Again, this has nothing to do with a console, the game itself wasn't a huge success which is why the sequels went to mobile and not consoles. So it's a risk for Sega to bring this to any new console regardless...for the 80,000th time....

XabiDaChosenOne25d ago

Your not really disproving his point, these are niche titles and they don't move millions of copies nor are Sony expecting them too. Yet Sony still green lights these kinds of games. Its called fan service.

gangsta_red25d ago

@Xabi

"Your not really disproving his point,"

I really wish I knew his point.

"these are niche titles and they don't move millions of copies nor are Sony expecting them too"

Except we're not talking about Sony, we're talking about Japanese games, and a game from Sega called Valkyria Chronicles that did not do well when it was released years ago on PS3 despite the 'niche' label and the console being very popular in Japan.

"Yet Sony still green lights these kinds of games. Its called fan service."

Lol, Okay, let's play.... so if these are niche titles and they aren't suppose to move millions...then what's the problem with Sega releasing this game for Xbox? Why is sales all of a sudden called in to question when Xbox is concerned but then all is forgiven as 'niche' when Sony is involved?

XiNatsuDragnel25d ago

Sigh my point is that Sony sells more Japanese games than Xbox. And xbox doesn't sell Japanese games at all

Kribwalker25d ago

gravity rush 2 was rumoured to have only sold 145,000, and now, they are shutting down the online services, not even a year later. hardly selling million or more

Well more reason for my to hurry up and finish it on Steam.

Movefasta199325d ago (Edited 25d ago )

unlocking characters like welkin and Alicia should have been free after completing the base game ...I like my games releasing complete and if t weren’t for the fans on steam and PS3/PS4 they wouldn’t have made this.but anyways ...

Abriael25d ago

How exactly does the lack of characters from *another game* that have no active part in *this game* make it incomplete again?

Movefasta199325d ago

It doesn’t make it incomplete,but they are announcing dlc so early featuring characters from old games .anyways I am not going to bother arguing with you,I seem to remember you damage controlling for the their last game which ended up trash anyways

Rangerman120825d ago

DLCs already planned? Well, I guess now I have to tone down my expectations. I'm still excited for this game but I hope they don't ruing the game by rushing it or by adding microtransaction or whatnot.

gangsta_red25d ago

It's pretty much a given now to expect planned DLC. It shouldn't come as a surprise

fenome25d ago

It's not a surprise, it's just not very tactful to announce DLC the same time as you announce the game. Hopefully it's free DLC that they're worried they didn't have time to include into the base game, especially since it just appears to be fanservice characters.

I really enjoyed Valkyria Chronicles (never played the portables or spinoffs) though, so I am looking forward to seeing more on this.

BradsGamingPlace25d ago

Why is there DLC planned before the game is released? That seems like a mighty disservice to the players.

Abriael25d ago (Edited 25d ago )

Because they're bonuses for the collector's edition and first print, which are a standard in Japan, and have been for years.
