Following the reveal of Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order by Respawn Entertainment, during a panel from Star Wars Celebration, Electronic Arts presented a look at performance capture.
Yes, it makes tons of sense. Make an exclusivity deal with the console who has the least amount of sales.
This likely isn't an exclusivity deal, just a marketing partnership. Xbox had the same with Battlefield 5. The only thing they might get as exclusive is likely a console bundle.
I question the value of a big marketing deal this late in the gen, especially when they aren't really helping ms to begin with. Might make sense if it were a nect gen title, and the gen was starting when this game releases, but isnt it scheduled for release at the end of this year?
40mil is a lot
Not when PS4 has nearly 100 million.
40 million over 9 years? No way Xbox has sold that few. I’m sure the number is above that.
I'm certain it was released 6 years ago. Not 9.
No matter which console has the most sales it would be ridiculous for a third party game to be exclusive. I’m tired of that. 1st party should be the only exclusives.
I'm pretty sure Disney wouldn't allow it to be exclusive. Just like fifa and NFL require they release their yearly games as multiplat. Could just be some exclusive content, because with no mt or online, there is really nothing to hold back outside full game content of some sort.
There's no reason or indication that it's a full game exclusivity. The deal, if any, would be something with DLC. I'm absolutely not a fan of these kinds of practices but usually a company knows better than you what makes them the most money.
EA has a close relationship with Xbox. I am not surprised about this.
someone is sour
I know they showed the weapons that the enemies will probably use, but with that many people performance capturing a similar movement I’d imagine we’ll get to see more than one Jedi in the game.
Makes sense EAXMS
As always by EA, show cut scenes and wow the crowd. Come launch, massive downgrade. But this is Respawn so I have some...new hope.
Who knows? The EA-mpire might finally Strike Back!
Didn't this same exact studio make the mistake of partnering with MS for the original Titanfall? I prefer PS consoles, but I think it's dumb when either company secures 3rd party exclusive content/marketing. From a business standpoint though, you really shouldn't partner with the company that has less than half the install base of the other 🤷♂️
I don't think we know whether that was a mistake and it also wasn't the studios decision. "I prefer PS consoles, but I think it's dumb when either company secures 3rd party exclusive content/marketing." Why would you give a crap about marketing? Easy money for the developers and there's no sacrifice on the consumers end so I don't see the problem with it.
Wrong it was the studio who made the decision to go with xbox you can even look up the article's where he say they bet their money on the wrong horse. Lol
@neocores8055 So explain this then: https://gamerant.com/titanf... EA made the decision; not Respawn Studios. I can't even find this "bet on the wrong horse quote" so it seems you can't just "look it up". So by the looks of things your claim is false.
More likely EA makes that decision. While they funded titanfall, it was under a different program where the dev retained a lot of control.
That sounds right. EA and Microsoft have been bed buddies for years. They can have each other.
The 2 Battlefront games were Sony marketed. Only friend of EA is money. They couldn't give a damn who the partner with.
That deal will only benefit EA. They will get extra money but the game will still sell more on PS4 so no actual benefit for Xbox.
I love seeing this from your eyes: "More copies sold on PS4 means no actual benefit for Xbox..." Since When are we defining the term "benefit" to mean and only translate into copies sold? Although you bring up a valid point that it's probably going to sell more copies on PS4, You don't know the real benefits in this deal etc.. and Neither do I. Let's just see what happens.
I highly doubt this everytime a battlefront came out people said Xbox had the rights and for both PS4 had rights to both and got a Limited Edition console
