Remember when a platform exclusive game really was exclusive? When 'Only for N64' in the corner was a promise and the little Saturn 'S' with a thumbs-up meant you were likely in for something special? Well, those days are long gone.
I'm sad that not even Games Radar can take a quote from a dev saying it's exclusive and treat it like nothing :(
could be ran properly on the PS3. The PS3's lopsided architecture and lack of video ram would surely lead to subpar framerates.
And also it was already stated by Ubisoft that Conviction was heavy in the AI which they stated that the 360 excels at. The PS3, not so much.
The inredibly slow BD2x drive would also possibly lead to horrendous load times.
I feel that both developers wouldn't want to sacrifice the integrity of their masterpieces by downgrading to the PS3.
translation: I'm feeling insecure about my 360 approaching obsolescence already and need to make up stuff to feel better.
let your ingores grooow...
Wow you really hurt my feelings. You, a devout Microsoft hater. And a PS3 fanboy will ignore me. You are just the kind of people I like to ignore me then I don't have so many disagrees.
The funny thing is even if you did you will still click the show button to see what my response was.
The funny thing is that you are one of the exact same people who would say the same thing I have only about MGS4 or KZ2 for PS3. You see how that works?? I have a vendetta against Sony kids like you. Note....not Sony fans who have the ability to think..but Sony kids.
The worst type are actually like you bc your hatred of all other consoles is so apparent. Yet you adamantly claim you are unbiased. And by the way I have nothing against the PS3 just people like you.
I only post in this manner bc Sony kids deserve it.
MS paid for SC: Conviction for sure, just to have a 'spy' game as competition for MGS4. That one won't go multi platform.
Bioshock, could be. I think MS will pay so much money, to get Bioshock 2 exclusive also. THe guys that made it even just recently said there is no code available for the PS3, they didn't took it any further in that process.
Why are MGS4 and FFXIII not added? 3rd party, not paid exclusive by Sony. Strange those are missing. Biggest chance of going to the 360 because of the installed base and average attach rate of games per unit
LMAO!!!!!!! oh god!, i'm not being a fanboy but come on TheMart you gotta admit that image that genericname put up is pretty funny lol :)
I agree with TheMart on SC:Conviction, i'll be VERY surprised to see that come to the PS3 because MS must've paid for that. In regards to FFXIII, I think that all hinges on whether the JRPG's already on the Xbox360 sell well, we'll have to see. No point in having a large install base if not many people is buying your game.
EDIT: Damn, just noticed I said something very similar to what PS360Wii just said below me.....DAMN YOU PS360WII lol
TheMart for FFXIII to end it's exclusivity the 360 would need to show that it can sell j-RPG's which it shows that it really can't. Install base is one thing but when the install base just laughs at the genre then I'm not sure it's a good thing.
MGS4 no one can ever be sure but I think it's been stated and confirmed so many times that I think one can drop it.
And that's why those 2 weren't on the list cuz for now those 2 are pretty decidedly exclusive
Bioshock is 360 exclusive for the console market. PCs are a separate market.
Microsoft Platforms = PC & Xbox 360
Microsoft Platform = Exclusive
Exclusive = Bioshock
Bioshock = Microsoft Windows and Xbox 360 exclusive.
I'm saying your names backwards because its obvious you also think that way.
so MartThe, you said "MS paid for SC: Conviction for sure, just to have a 'spy' game as competition for MGS4."
maskBlood, you said "And also it was already stated by Ubisoft that Conviction was heavy in the AI which they stated that the 360 excels at."
... and you guys are believing this marketing bull$sh!t? Think about it. I paid you top dollar to keep the title exclusive. Why would I even entertain the idea of 'possible' on another platform? The point of buying exclusivity is to sell hardware. In this case, its to sell 360 hardware. Come on guys, be a little forward thinking here!
You guys have time and time complained about the marketing and hype of Sony yet you get suckered into marketing and hype by Ubi. Because of your bias nature, you will believe anything pro 360.
so .. maskBlood, any architecture non-PC based is lopsided?
any chances of them being paid as well to troll?
Hmmm... Of all of these mentioned there is only one that is a flat denial -- Bioshock. If they do indeed bring it to the PS3 at some point, they will apparently have to begin the process -- putting it at least many months away. The other "exclusive" statements include a very obvious qualifier like "this holiday" or "in 2007". It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that they are only timed exclusives.
Stop all the damn fights over exclusives. It's just forcing developers to have to make more profits on one console and artificially limits sales. If the developers could easily make it for more than one platform, go for it. AND THEN DROP THE FREAKING PRICE as $60 for some of the more recent titles that are 10 hours or less is ridiculous.
Lol Crysis probably, who cares about endwar, Bioshock is a maybe, and Unreal Tournament I thought was already slated as 2008? and SC:Conviction is a 360 exclusive, Microsoft payed for it, it's why they made such a big deal about it last E3. But even if Bioshock or Splinter Cell went multi, it's still yesterday's news for PS3 fans...
Crysis looks like a pretty sick game.. and has amazing graphics id luv to see that go to systems
so let me get this straight if MGS4 comes out for the 360, who cares because it's yesterdays news for ps3 owners, right? Wrong!
all xbots, yourself included would be jumping for joy because you get MGS4. Same with UTIII, why bother putting out for 360 altogether, since it will be old by the time 360 owners get their hands on it.
You guys are foolish beyond belief.
Why put it on the Xbox 360 all together, you ask? Because it's the cheaper ($$$) console. Also note, there ARE people out there who seek to play those games at the cheaper alternative.
In case you're wondering, Unreal Tournament III for the Xbox 360 will hit store shelves early 2008. So I wouldn't consider it to be "old" by that time.
Hey Bloody... UT3 will be on 360. But seriously. In your honest opinion. Which platform will it be better on?
PS3 you can DL mods from the net and play them online against PC players. 360 is only on XBL. You can hook up the Keyboard and mouse, you already own, to the PS3 and play that way or use the sixaxis to control you Hoverboard and other things... Dude even being a non biased fanboy I would have to admit the PS3 versions seems a lot cooler... Even if MS makes you guys some mods you can DL... you can bet your ass they will nickle and dime the crap out of you. I own a 360 and I would much rather have this on my PS3... PC would be best but mine is too crappy =P There are much better features on the PS3 version and I have friends. I swear to you 2 guys I know are buying PS3's simply due to the fact that they are huge UT fans and want the best version... PS3 is still cheaper then upgrading PC's + more options for controls...
You're an idiot. Of course MGS4 would be yesterday's news if it came out on the 360 like a year later...games don't keep hype over an entire year, duh. Plus I could care less I'll play it day one on the PS3.
Cause MGS4 and FFXIII can't be done on the 360...and because the "rumour" of those games going multiplat is starting to get boring ;)
jus like VF5 was supposed to hit how long ago? the game will be at least 6 months old by the time it hits 360, try again.
you see how an xbot mind operates? if bioshock comes out for ps3, 6 months after release, it's old news(i'm not saying it will and i could care less since i already own it for 360) but if UTIII comes out for 360 6 months after release, it's perfectly ok. read your xbot buddies' comments and you'll realise you totally missed the point i was trying to make.
Missed what point? You claimed certain titles will be "old" news on the other console. So what if it hits the Xbox 360 months later? The game is certainly better than the PS3 version especially with the online option.
As for the term "Xbot", it's getting old. Really fast. Try coming up with something new, just to amuse me.
I hear alot of 360 fans say that Ps3 cant handle a Strong Ai, Once metal gear solid comes out they will all have to eat there words. Ps3 is more than capable of handling the Ai of spilntercell.
to be quite honest, i've just about played VF5 to the max. I also don't like the d-pad on the 360, it's extremely lame, in order to enjoy the game i would have to buy an arcade stick. I'd rather enjoy Tekken 5 online.
i'll probably still rent VF5 for 360 just to compare the graphics, but thats about it, unless it controls well then i might sell my ps3 copy.
Just thought I'd say something about FFXIII. Obviously no-one knows whether this will become multi-platform, but one thing to think about: I've got a gut feeling that FFXIII is going to be massive in terms of data, I'd wager even more so than Blue Dragon which was on 3 dvd's. So if they decide to port it, I wonder how many disks it'll be? Now of course, people may say swapping dvd's isn't that bad which is fair enough, but how many are we talking about? I'm just wondering because the devs at Heavenly Sword said that they practically filled up a Blu-Ray disks with all the sound and production shenanigans. Now we all know that SquareEnix's production values always go through the roof, so imagine what they have planned!
Two Blu-ray disks maybe? Surely not.....
Oh, yeah any idea when this is meant to come out? I'm hearing that it's not due out until late '09.......IN JAPAN!!! I hope this isn't true. What on earth are those SquareEnix devs cooking up?
Is that it's often than not exclusive to the Microsoft platforms and not specifically the Xbox 360. In a few years when people will have more sophisticated PC's, and they feel like going to a game store - they could just pick up Gears of War on PC instead of buying another platform that would cost more than the actual game. This isn't really feasible currently because most don't have the machines to take advantage of Gears of War on PC, however a similar scenario won't behold Sony's games as they're specifically exclusive to one platform only.
This is one of the reasons why the PlayStation 2 is still selling strongly. What will the sales figures of the Xbox360 be like when Microsoft introduces its latest next-gen console in a few years?
It's really sad when members here start to just remove Bubbles from you whenever they see you post something. Really sad. I pity how they were raised. When someone says something, even if I disagree with it, I rarely vote on their posts let alone take their bubbles. Pretty childish tool if you ask me, didn't expect some would randomly use it. If you don't like my comments, then that's what the IGNORE feature is for.
My comment was regarding Microsoft so no prizes in guessing who the guilty party are.
I think in order for FFXIII to come to the 360 they would have to make a whole different game, because you can't just port a game from the PS3 and put it on the 360. FFXIII is going to be a huge game in terms of space, now how many discs would it take to fit a game like it on the 360.
I know people at SQUIRE ENIX are not going to take shortcut and risk making a bad game, and I know 360 owners are not going to want a game that is great on the PS3 but lacks on the 360 just so they can say they have the game on their system(if they did then that would be very sad).
As far as MGS4 gos it could be done on the 360 but they would need more time, so I'm guess they would need 6 to 8 months to port it on the 360 on 2 discs. And by that time people would have bought a PS3 just for this game(which many plain on doing), so just like what happen on the XBOX it wouldn't be that big of a hit for MS.
Exclusive these days, means more like timed exclusives.
MGS4 will go to XBOX 360 but not till a good while after is splashes on PS3.
Bioshock will go to PS3 next year.
Final Fantasy XIII, I'm not sure. That could stay PS3 exclusive forever.
It's not hard to see why developers would want to bring their software over to Xbox 360. Most good software is rewarded with good sales (often selling 500k to a million units). On the other hand, Playstation 3 hasn't had a single game sell a million units here in the United States.
I knew sony trolls would say bioshock was going to the ps3. LOOk the dev even said it wasn't get over it
