H.A.W.X 2 has been delayed on the PS3, PC and Wii - meaning that lucky Xbox 360 gamers will get to buy the game before anyone else.
LOL whos gonna buy this game anyway
Well somebody has to cause MS probably paid 5 mil $ lol EDIT: OH Nosy.. Who took my bubble away? HUH, who!?
I'm going to get the game. I liked the previous one :/
This game would be badass to have if it were coming out in 3D! Imagine all the clouds coming out at you, it could really make this game.
@InfectedDK Someone took your bubble cause you were being a snarky little bitch, and you know it.
no offence i like hawx but its never been the top of my list of "1st day buy" games :/ i think they could have gone with a few 'better' games for a 1 week exclusive :s lol.. or maybe pumped the money they spent on this timed exclusive into a game thats currently being developed's budget :s
whats the point?this company just never learns..
The only people that really gain anything from timed exclusivity is Microsoft and the Devs that they paid off. If Microsoft wants to keep dishing out extra money to developers, I really dont mind the wait to get a game later on. They'll use the money to make more multiplatform games.
This has gone too far now. A week for a retail title? That's just ridiculous.
this really works MS! I'm gonna go buy myself a 360 and the game for xbox instead. I will also buy that nifty camera i've been hearing so much about. i just love commercials with a lot of happy people of all generations and races playing together as one big happy family. and i can work out in front of my tv. instead of taking a walk or actually working out on my way to the gym... yay. gaming for the win! go halo! more space marines, more steroids, more sequels, more gray & brown games ftw! btw. the first game sucked anyway.
They coukd of invested that money in a new game or some sh1t. Lame ass MS.Im done
microsoft's politics really sucks.. it is stupid, 7 days long exclusive can't help console sales imo as natsu said, they should invest in new games, not this stupidity , because lack of exclusive games on xbox 360 is bigger and bigger
So where's the part in the article that says Microsoft is to blame? Do you honestly think MS would pay Ubisoft to release a flight game a week earlier than other versions? Really? Does that even fit the 360 demographic? Use your heads people. PS3 probably suffers in comparison to the 360 version so they don't want comparison videos/articles screwing up their first week sales. PC probably is still trying to get some new crappy Ubi DRM system. Wii....yeah that's unexplainable. But really, jumping to MS and money as the conclusion with no bases for judgment of proof just makes you look really dumb.
Aren't you jumping to a conclusion by saying that the PS3 version is inferior and using DRM as an excuse for the PC delay?
lol crying about assumptions then fighting them with more assumptions. the fanboy logic is outstanding.
Kinda...yes, pretty much.
Did microsoft claim it a timed exclusive? No. There's just a delay.Talk about beating a dead horse.
They even go as far to express the opposite http://gamer123.com/images/... http://www.xbox360rally.com... Maybe it is just a delay for the other 3 formats which is kinda unheard of but you wouldnt put it past em. I think thats the general consensus
No it's just you gaming on a dead horse.
Why does Ubisoft think it's a good idea to potentially marginalize their game(s). Why does Microsoft continually think its a good idea to keep doing PRETEND EXCLUSIVES, continuing to SHORTCUT. Their whole philosophy this gen. has been predicated on SHORTCUTTING, from fabrication to game development. Its sickening....it really is.
Timed exclusive really is one of the strangest things ever, especially for games like this. Are hordes of people going to be up in arms angered by waiting 7 days? Same thing with Call of duty map packs, hey look waiting a month for maps that were in the previous game, take my money. What a sad state of affairs.
i will not buy this game! i will boycott the makers of the video game called hawx becuz it has glitches. i played the first one of these and i played for 4 hours before realizing that there were no hawx to be seen anywhere really. its just a bunch of stupid planes. there was one party where i was flying in this plane and i think i seen a hawx off in the distance in the sky. hawx are gods most prettiest creatures and this is false advertizing. no more hawx for me!
hes talking about birds? http://www.sculptures-by-bj... like that guY?
MS acts like professional trolls with these small delays for the competition. I feel like we all got trolled hard by MS.
The MS Empire strikes back? how willz da ps3 crowdz be savedz nowz?
I doubt it very much MS paid a single dime for this, it's simply a Tom Clancy franchise which the Xbox always has first dibs. Trolls should ignore this comment and stick to your "conspiracy theory's" as usual.
MS is constantly paying off developers for times exclusives. They admit it themselves Remember the 50 MILLION they paid to get DLC as a times exclusive for GTA4? 50 millions for DLC...
The $50 million figure was speculation by Michael Patcher, it could be more or less. And the money itself acted as a loan of sorts IIRC. Ubisoft has done this before, I believe they did it with a few Splinter Cell games as well where each platforms release would be weeks or months apart. I highly doubt anyone paid anyone, it's simply Ubisoft being Ubisoft. Think of it like this, if Microsoft paid Ubisoft for exclusivity wouldn't they have picked a better, more anticipated title?
Sorry to burst your bubble but here is a list of Tom Clancy games that hit the Xbox first. Splinter Cell Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow Splinter Cell Double Agent Splinter Cell Conviction (console exclusive) Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon 2 GRAW GRAW 2 The only reason for this is the fanbase is mostly made up of PC and Xbox owners. Shooters do better on those systems, PC more than anything.
I really don't understand why I got disagrees, Ubisoft's Tom Clancy stuff has always had weird release dates. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... (I guess Nokia paid for 5 day exclusivity, hunh? :P) http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Plenty more too,
They disagreed with you because your comment doesn't fit their conspiracy theory agenda. You can link it or even take the proof to their home and slap them in the face with it and they will still deny and disagree.
OMG i'm freaking out!! An entire week?!! Can somebody give me advice on how to control my emotions?
// emotional control program// 1 Give me moneyz. 2 slap yourself repeatedly 3 let me slap you repeatedly 4 goto 1. 5 is Wane Brady gonna have to choke a B!... I said goto 1 6 end cash only plz. =)
Pack it in sony. MS got HAWX exclusive for a whole 7 days, might as well declare them the new industry leaders
Do I really have to put a /sarcasm tag at the end for people to get that I'm not serious?
Apparently so, i dont think the 360 fanboys get sarcasm lol. No ones honestly being serious about the timed exclusive stuff, just having a little fun, but they just think we are talking real...?
Its not timed exclusive, the other games are just being delayed, thats it. Why would MS buy 7 day exclusivity? You people enjoy being this retarded? Gees. Thats like saying Ubisoft are worried that the game won't sell on ps3, it will only get rented and copied on to the HDD
It's called SARCASM... Look it up, it might suprise you ;)
He just proved his fanboy eyes.
Ubiport did another crap job on the PS3 demo as it looks horrible compared to the 360 version. The sound level was lower on the PS3 version also for some reason.
Here's the thing, if it's a week, it means when you go to buy HAWX 2 for 360, the stores will, likely, already have PS3, Wii and PC versions sitting out back. What an odd process.
only 1 week? ms timed exclusivity gets shorter and shorter
but that doesn't explain the white stuff that came out my nose from laughing so hard. 0.o
Played the demo, horrible feel to it, combat is boring. Need i say more. A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?
"Global Thermonuclear War"
After playing the demo, I'm not too fussed. I'll simply wait for Ace Combat next year.
....That money could have been used for an exclusive game, an exclusive game! ...Microsoft has lost it.
Should save PS3, wii and PC owners some money then...
Since everybody claims that 360 owners only buy shooters, I guess 360 owners will be saving their money too.
Only person that said that right on...it could be a bug that they need to fix on the PS3 and PC LOL...
H.A.W.X. is basically a shooter. That is pretty much what you are doing the entire game. The only difference is that you fly instead of walk.
Did you guys even read the article?The ps3 version was delayed one week bute the pc version was delayed almost a month and the wii version was delayed indefinitely.This has nothing to do with ms paying for a timed exclusive.
I am totally scratching my head on some of the comments here. So now if a game is delayed on any platform it is a Microsoft payoff? Sorry folks, follow barinho's advice and read the article. My tinfoil hat is in the wash right now.
Good news ps3 fans! Ace combat is back on PS3!! Of course it's not exclusive but good thing it's coming to PS3
