M$ getting desperate much?

DelbertGrady2747d ago (Edited 2747d ago )

Apart from the ones mentioned in the article Sony also did it with the Joker character for Batman. And the extra content for Red Dead Redemption. And the timed exclusivity of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. I could name more if you want to.

Why are those any different?

@Sarcasm - Your comment makes no sense. As far as I know Limbo, Hydro Thunder and Monday Night Combat(which looks great) are all exclusive to XBLA. If that's what you're getting at?

peeps2747d ago

exactly. And this is also most likely to tie in with the hole xbla of summer where lara croft is one of the featured games

Sarcasm2747d ago (Edited 2747d ago )

@Soda, how about they don't last for 4 weeks? Just like most PS3 exclusive games... *SHOCK* They're actually exclusive!!!

LOL my comment makes no sense. Of course it doesn't, you don't understand logic. The logic of lame "Timed exclusives" is a waste of money for Microsoft.

safetyUnit2747d ago (Edited 2747d ago )

It's no big deal. Not like any 360 gamers will even look twice at this game--they're too busy playing Crackdown 7.2--er, oops I forgot, IGN actually gave it a 7.5.

And your not?

On topic: I don't really see the issue. This is just business. Was anyone really looking forward to this anyway?

EDIT: I retract my earlier statement. This game looks pretty cool.

Yeah, you tell them kingdavid! You're a 360 fan girl. You told those PS3 fan girls.

Anyway, this game looks interesting... we need more info.

The exclusive content for Dead Space and MOH can only be exclusive. Dead Space Extraction will only wrk with the PS MOVE because it's a Wii game. And MOH Frontline was a PS2 exclusive. SO what exactly are you trying to prove with that link?

bjornbear2747d ago

pot meet kettle =P


still the game looks great, and I am interested in it since I did enjoy TR in the past! lets hope its better than the recent games, stop bickering and lets enjoy this game all together

if 360 owners don't want MS to get more 1st party studios, then, PS3 only owners, stop sh!tting their mind.

Inside_out2747d ago

It's a waste of time trying to explain to PS3 kids. They don't get it and never will.

@sarcASSm...If it's a waste of money for M$, why do you

@SafetyunFIT...really, and what is left to play on PS3 THIS Reach in 7 wks:

Here's what Sony has in September...

Timed exclusivity is here to stay. M$ stomping Sony this year.

Rainstorm812747d ago (Edited 2747d ago )

you gotta be kidding me?

LBP2, GT5, Socom 4 = Great holiday for PS3 owners

Halo Reach, Fable 3 = Great Holiday for 360 but then what......i guess Kinect but then you can add MOve in there for PS3.....

See how dumb you make yourself look?

Neither MS or Sony has a ton of exclusives this holiday because both companies are launching thier motion periphials. You said sony has kung fu whatevers in shyt Move launches that month. But to compare MS to Sony as if they can compete in exclusive quantity is just crazy.

Not to mention a ton of great multiplats this holiday season.

What's so desperate about giving consumers content before its rivals?

P1NKY2747d ago

Its doesn't make the game any better so why make timed exclusives? Just make it exclusive or not.

OSU_Gamer2747d ago (Edited 2747d ago )

Because its happening on the 360.... lets be honest. MS can't do anything without getting criticized.

The hypocrisy is so mind boggling here.

DigitalAnalog2747d ago

That's another month of me appreciating another game.... they should do this more often.

-End statement

nycredude2747d ago

Everyone one fighting over a top down too human style lara croft dlc game now. WOW!

Diablo 2 with guns?

Actually just watched a few trailers of it for the first time, looks really awesome, but does give me a Diablo 2 feeling (which is a good thing)

peeps2747d ago

i think it's just the top down perspective. By the sounds of it its pretty much a tomb raider style game with shooting and puzzles but can be played co-op and from this viewpoint. Imo it looks a good idea and deffo gonna try it out

Troll_Police2747d ago

There are much better ways to spend your money, MS. Like 1st party studios.

TheColbertinator2747d ago

1st Party Studios? Huh? What are those? :S

dizzleK2747d ago

keep it, i'm sure nobody will be missing much. if i'm gonna spend $15 on an xbla game i'll certainly choose Limbo over this.
