"Now the topic we was on was Exclusives and this went both ways on the subject saying they was both "Important" and "Nothing new", Our buddy cleared things up by saying..."
thats why sony owns 21 game studios...
All these damn studios and they still don't have one that does RPGs. Now that I think about it I'd low to see a Media Molecule RPG. That would be epic.
Mm on a RPG would probably do very well, to bad we'll never see that
Hey you never know, they just may!..some day
just make your own RPG with LBP2. ;-) :-P
low = Love*
Isn't SOE responsible for Everquest?
It's OK 357, we still "low" you anyway ;) Actually the more I think about it the more you are right, Mm would make an awesome RPG. They are just so creative and would add so much personality. I am very disappointed with the lack of RPGs in general this generation. I'm especially disappointed in Level 5 not making Dark Cloud 3. Here's to hoping Sony reveals some RPGs at E3. Hopefully one of their multiple studios makes one.
Not developing Dark Cloud #3 is an epic fail. I loved those games. White night chronicles sucked, unfortunately. So what do they do? get right to work on Wnc 2. Give us what we want. We want DC3!
have u try demons souls?
I adore Demon's Souls, it's my 2009 GOTY. But I need more RPGs, and ones with a bigger focus on story and character. I'm so dying for RPGs.
good idea. a lot people don't do their homework but the MM guys were part of the original Fable team. Would love to see what they could do with an RPG using the LBP engine.
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE don't take this as a fanboy comment...I'm an avid RPG'r and I own both systems. Demons Souls and Valkyria Chronicles were both masterpieces...but the 360 has the PS3 beat far and wide with RPG's this gen. If you really love games, and not just systems, get a 360. Mass Effect 2, Fable 2, Lost Odyssey (SPANKS FF13 imo) and Blue Dragon are all fantastic titles and shouldn't be missed if you love RPG's. PEACE GAMERS!!!
Legend of Dragoon 2??
We can always count on you for the moral support.
Sony has several studios that develop RPGs...Currently they are working on several and should be out sometime soon...they have been working on them since sometime last year...their was a report that listed Sony has 5 or more in development...
Wow Alpha and remember357 are u in love or something?? LOL I'm kidding, I,m kidding! The bad thing is that LBP will suck the life out of them. It takes them 2 years to make the game and they spent another supporting it. LBP3 is as sure as rain so dont expect an RPG anytime soon from them, not this gen at least.
OOOps!!! I meant to agree Level 5 has done exclusive RPGS for PS2 and PS3 but they are third party due they also have made rpgs for nintendo ds. My bad.
It would be particularly interesting as MM was founded by former lionhead employees.
Sony should steal Nomura and give him his own studio (first party of course). This gen sony have turned from the RPG metropolis to the RPG wastelands, there has been a few great RPGs but you could count those on one hand and let's not forget that none of them are first party.
Bubbles! Great Idea!
what are you talking about Demons Souls was first party
Nope demon souls was third party but had assistance from sony.
Ummm. No. Demon's Souls was published by Sony Computer Entertainment Japan, which means that Sony owns Demon's Souls. They hired FromSoftware to do the major developing but sent in their own men to direct the game's development.
....look at it this way, think how expensive it would be to make a last gen RPG right now. See where I'm going? Imagine taking an RPG like FF7 and making every aspect of it modern and in HD, it would cost way too much and even big dev's and publishers wont take the risk.
Demon souls was published by Sony. FromSoftware owns the rights to Demon souls. Think of it this way. You want to make a game but you don't have any money or not enough and you have no way to actually sell it. You come to me. I lend you the rest of the money you need for the game and I take care of selling the game for you. We agree that I get what I put into the deal plus 15% of whatever the game makes. Do I then own that game? Not unless that was part of the agreement, which wasn't the case with Demon Souls.
Doesn't that make Demon Souls second party or something...?
2nd party is a company that isn't owned by Sony but has agreed through contract to be published/ only make games for Sony. First party is actualy a company owned by Sony. Just using Sony as example. Because from software makes other games for other consoles it is third party.
bubbles yes i think nomura would happily except that offer, and you just never know what he will do now that wad has stabbed us all in the back
Demon's Souls was co-developed by FromSoftware and Sony Japan. Sony owns the IP. That is why the back of the box states Copyright 2009 Sony Computer Entertainment Inc, licensed to and published by Atlus, U.S.A Inc. for distribution in North America and Mexico on the PlayStation 3 Computer Entertainment System.
they have the money to do it too. i would tell him like this lol say we at Sony want u to be over our RPG development u can hand pick your team and come up with a name we will also fund whatever u need Nomura and he be yeah sure lol but one can only dream
is why Sony are in a league of their own...
Talk with your money and just buy exclusives from now on. Stop buying the shovelware unless they are really good.
Let me rephrase that sentence again: "Sony exec: [Third Party Exclusives] are a thing of the past" Now that sounds Better and it's totally true since Sony got Everything Cover if we talk about Exclusive Titles: http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
WTF? Nearly every game i own is a PS3 exclusive. The best games are always exclusves! Look at MGS4, GOW3, Uncharted 2, Gears of War 2, Heavy Rain, Killzone 2, Halo, Alan Wake, LBP, and so on.. Which multiplatform games can deliver such a quality??? There are not many.. ok AC2, Batman AA or RDR.. I'm not really interested in all the upcoming multiplatform games.. Everybody want to see the big Mega-Blockbusters at the E3! GT5, Killzone 3, Gears of War 3, Agent, Halo Reach, Resistance 3, LBP2, Last Guardian ... Multiplats? There may be some cool games but i don't care at the moment. I would die for footage of all the exclusives ;-)
the article refers to 3rd party exclusives i believe.
I see you said Halo in there.. that is not a good game.. ./sigh all others are good though :) well apart from Halo Reach as well XD
I hope that excerpt is not indicative of the writers level of education and someone just trying to be cute. "the topic we was on" what is this the reconstruction era?
Time and time again we all learned that, microsoft knows how to make their money say the right things LOL
You can bet your bottom dollar on that!
Are you Tiger Woods? On Topic: I'm still seeing a lot of exclusives for every platform nowadays... So, they're not a thing from the past.
Are you mistress #874?
I thought you said I was special... How could you forget? I'm #9,001, and I'm a guy!
"If you've got the money then that word fades away, to be honest exclusives are a thing of the past and sooner or later games will just be playable on anything that can handle it, you can disagree and say different but business is money and money talks for it self" - Sony Ha...pretty much .
I don't believe it for a second, actually, since Sony owns more 1st party studios than MS and Nintendo combined. I'm calling BS on this article.
I agree. And regardless if he really does work for Sony, you can hardly attribute the statement to the whole company. It's just some guy's opinion.
this isn't news
then why are you here man! lol :p
Sony is smart, why do you think it have a lot of 1st Party Developers. Sony is thinking about the future, not the past and present.
Hold on... If I'm reading this correctly.. No more PS3 exclusives?? Ah man.. This ain't good .. *starts to shake head left & right coupled with a facepalm*, This really isn't good guys. PS3 only shows it's true power with exclusives because developers are able to work with the PS3 more efficiently.. Multi-platform games made for the 360 & ported over to the PS3 are just holding it back.
3rd parties...i believe
Games are usually made on the PC then ported to consoles.
OK kid, but you still forget that Sony owns developer studios all around the world and most of these games from Japan/euro goes world wide too, so there always going to be exclusives for Sony.
makes sense if you look at third party devs making exclusives, they will eventually be brought over to 360/wii,
I think the 3rd party ones. lol. I still hope to see mgs5 on ps3 though.
3rd party exclusives are a thing of the past, so not many people can argue with that
Kojima said MGS Peace Walker it is MGS5, just for PSP. But Konami wants MGS PW for PS3 too. MGS Peace Walker = MGS5 with another name.
Sony should buy From Software or Atlus or both, that way Demon's Soul's 2 will be only ps3 in the future.
I believe Sonys Japan Studio helped develop it so they may have some rights to it, but im not sure.
yeah they could have, well i hope they dont let this awesome game slip, this game has the potential to become a great franchise the first one was epic.
They should definitely acquire Atlus. The Persona series is becoming insanely popular. Who wouldn't want that in their bag of tricks? Unfortunately, I don't think Atlus would even accept the offer. They love their niche titles.
Who the hell gave the green light on this "news"? Anyways, my exec pal from MS told me that folks over at Lucas Farts are still bitchin about the stolen lightsaber that got turned into a motion stick. No lawsuits will be made cuz the carebears still don't care enough. More news on the way.
Where is my Legend of Dragoon prequel then Sony? Did you just decide to kill one of the best underrated RPGs of all time for no reason or what?
This is pretty much regarding Third Party Exclusives,
the day there are no more exclusive, is they day I stop gaming. despite the fanboys bickering, exclusives have always been the joy of gaming and a reason to buy a console. if there are no exclusives, every console has to be the same price or people will just buy the cheaper one. I also dont understand how exclusives will be no more when Sony owns so many studios, they are gonna start making games for both consoles? i dont think so.
They are referring to 3rd party developed games. Sony owns many 1st party developers that make games just for Sony and do not plan to go multiplat any time soon.
yeah i know...but that would mean there are still exclusive titles. aslong as first parties are making exclusives, why wouldnt a third party here and there? you know?
if there were no exclusives there would be no use for comments since there would be no bitching.
MS...buy some 1st parties, small ones and work them ups quit the time exclusive crap its lame and it doesn't help the industry
CLEARLY this is talking about 3rd party exclusives. So you shouldn't be surprised. I've actually let go of the thought of having 3rd party exclusives. For the simple fact that It'll have to be a 3rd parties decision to make it exclusive. The days of paying simply isn't financially sound especially when you cannot guarantee the success of it. So investing into first and second party games is the way to go. Buy up a few studios and start pouring money in to them. You get More money and more exclusives. The acquisition of Mm is sure to pay off with the success of LBP 2. I think 3rd party partnerships for exclusives should be done on a platform need and cases by case basis. and thats why Agent is exclusive.
