"It is said that third party exclusives are on a one way road to no return, but judging on what we have seen, it has just halted for the time being and is actually on its way back again." -TheGamerAccess.com
are easier to justify if the particular userbase is big enough. So as times goes by it dose make a strong case for a 3rd party exclsuive on a particular console but i think that as long as all console holders have similar userbase. Its really hard for 3rd parties to ignore one console over the other.
I dont think 3rd party exclusives are on the rise...they are still on the decline side..most games are still multi-plat well the games that ppl care about..and most 3rd party games that are exclusives are published by either M$ OR Sony so some sorta contract was put in place...it wasn't really done outta pure kindness by the devs
Third party exclusives are on the decline, and next gen should be all but nonexistent outside of special deal scenarios.
"And on top of all this, Capcom is about to announce an exclusive game for the Xbox 360." Since when did Capcom ever say it was an exclusive game for 360 that they were announcing? Last I heard, Capcom doesn't make exclusive games anymore (or good ones lol).
http://n4g.com/xbox360/News... actually... the theory comes from the exclusive third party games that were announced recently. if you read the article you would understand that. titles such as stoked and quantom theory are third party and are exclusive, capcom is a third party dev and is developing a game for the 360, MGS4 was third party so was haze, star ocean4 is third party so is ninja blade etc. etc.
yup written by some xbox fanboy that came up with his own theory with "returning 3rd party exclusives" based of his misunderstanding of this certain multiplatform from Capcom. It doesn't say any where that game is exclusive to 360, if it was, than for sure you would know it, because they would like to hype it more. Idiots. ut on other hand i understand them, 360 owners are depserate for exclusive games. All they get is exclusive DLC lol
as far as I can see it's exclusive until Capcom says otherwise. if you want to hold your breath and believe that there was some other mysterious reason Capcom announced a "new game for the Xbox 360 that they will be showing trailer for on XBL" without any mention of the PS3 or PSN then have at it.
bungie,bioware,R*,crapcom,Squa re now epic Hahahahahahaha Shamesoft has nothing left Hahahahahahahaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa no wonder the Xflop 3rd60 has no games for 2009.. LMAO!
yo man lol. you need to stop sniffing that crazy glue.
throughout this generation, I've seen EXACTLY the opposite since both the PS3, Wii, and 360 all have a significant number of consoles sold, multiplats are very profitable.
the article isnt there for nothing... it says about the recent games going multiplatform but it also says that their have been alot of games that were announced exclusive from third party devs and it even lists some of them for example, of course not all of them though.
we really can't explain why 3rd party devs choose to have exclusives. could be for any reason. money. audience. etc..
but they still are doing it.
...have ALL FLOPPED. Boom Blox Red Steel .... hell, pretty much EVERY 3rd party exclusive on the Wii, actually Blue Dragon Lost Odyssey Too Human Haze Lair Heavenly Sword Folklore I really don't see many devs/publishers taking that chance, unless they have an established loyalty/relationship already, i.e. Sucker Punch and Insomniac.
"Heavenly Sword" <--- woah man... that game was epic yo from start to finish, short, but EPIC.
Heavenly Sword and Lair are 1st party games...since Sony own those IP's Lost Odyssey wasn't really a complete flop...besides I love this game
That these 3rd party developers WANT multi-platforms. This logic might boggle some fanboy minds but... If the game developers had it their way there would one console to develop games for. It costs them a ton of money to have to develop for multiple platforms so what happens is typically at the beginning of a console generation there a bunch of different consoles and after the console generation is a few years old it becomes clear which console is the weakest link so the third party developers begin to ignore it more and more until the console is basically obsolete or a niche market with first parties pouring money into it. It's gaming Darwinism. It's how the PS2 killed the Dreamcast (which had quite a few great games but Sega didn't have the resources to keep alive) and it's how the 360 will kill the PS3. This has happened every console generation since the Atari 2600. Don't believe me then show me a console generation that didn't have it's big time losers that ended up with minimal 3rd party support or without any support at all.
3 partys right now want multiplatform since their is no clear victor yet casue sales r close. it cost more to develop but will benefit in the end. your logic is right but at this point in time your logic doesnt come into play. third party is going "the way of the dinosaur" supposedly because the recessions hurting and to make a game on both console will make you more money in the end right now. you think the devs of bioshock would have made a ps3 port if they weren't to benefit from it?
Third Party Timed* Exclusives On The Rise. Unless it's 1st/2nd party, it's not going to be exclusive for too long unless you throw a lot of money at it.
