Dtoid: "Producer of all things Tekken, Katsuhiro Harada, suggested in our recent interview that all developers should be making their games available for Microsoft's Xbox 360."
Probably a translation error.
Actually a flamebait article. He was asked about why they moved Tekken from PS only to Xbox 360 and PS3, he stated that any third party developer should develop for 360 too, he even compared PC and Xbox360 user base in that they are likely to stick to their platforms (not going to buy a PS3 for Tekken) so it was natural progression for a third party developer to broaden the appeal. http://www.destructoid.com/... The title makes it sound like if he's talking about developing for 360 only. The article only links the interview Harada gave to destructoid, it's not the interview itself. They made this "whole article " (7 lines...) about the one quote took out of context: "If you are not making games on the 360, then you are doing something wrong". That's just Destructoid being Destructoid, they even refer to Namco Bandai following those lines and some games from the publisher not even releasing on PS3 in North America, despite the fact it has nothing to do with Harada, the quote or the interview... Anything for hits! And just as you would expect from N4G, instead of someone posting the whole interview, the flamebait is quickly approved.
wow, that makes it a POS title in my opinion. Flambait FTL!
Preach it brother!
Sorry man. Maybe one day MS will invest in more first party studios and you'll get some of those elusive first party exclusive games. Sony is actually VERY smart by buying up all the studios it has. That guarantees that they'll have games that will help to differentiate the PS3 (and PS4) from other consoles. MS's approach is to make an online platform to differentiate itself, which is fine, but when Sony does catch up and brings all of Live's features to the PS3/PS4, it'll have the games AND the network features that people want. Believe it or not, exclusive games are important. They give a platform identity. What would be the point of buying both the PS3 and the 360 if they didn't each have their own exclusive games?
Yeah, but at the end of the day Sony is holding back the advancement of games by forcing a buttload of talented developers into working with limited hardware for at least 6 years. Microsoft makes it so that the 360 is very easy to port to, which means that third party developers like CD Projekt can take full advantage of PC technology and make a gorgeous game like The Witcher 2 and then port that game onto 360. Consoles are machines that are and should always be marketed for the masses of people who are either too ignorant or too lazy to purchase or build a computer to play games at much higher settings. Therefore, I think it is unfair that Sony should buy up the cream-of-the-crop studios and have them work exclusively on a console. It's almost laughable when a developer like Guerrilla Games makes statements attesting to the "power of the PS3" and the "capability of the "SPUs" but ultimately they make a game that runs in 720p with low res textures, they run that game at 30 frames per second, they don't allow modding, they don't allow players to create and share their own maps and they charge money for official DLC maps. And people say that Microsoft is holding back the gaming industry. How can MS be holding back gaming when they're barely involved in it? You said it yourself, they don't have that many studios and they don't have that many exclusives. Sony is smart for having a lot of studios, but they are also dumb for spending billions of dollars to produce a console when they can just publish the games on an open platform and directly reap the profit without waiting 3 years to offset the costs of R&D for the PS3.
"If you are not making games on the 360, then you are doing something wrong" Harrada said. Obviously first party studios who are not owned by Microsoft have a good enough reason not to work with the 360. But yeah, unless there are limited funds or a deal was struck to keep the developer away from the 360, all third party devs should be on the 360 as well as any other platform worth noting.
fix the title. He said developers should make games for the 360 as well. Title sounds like developers should only make games for the 360.
yeah they tried that already in japan see how that ended up lol
Really?, I'm sad everyday I go outside cause' all I see is a bunch of Bullshi*
The owner of N4G should change the name of the site to "Misleading News Gamers".
The same goes for PS3 too. PS3 leads everywhere except USA.
they are in last place still...
1st place in games imo :)
That gold Ps3 has blinded you.
So games such as Tekken 6 can dumbed down due the 360s limitations? But than again it is a business, so I don't blame them. They have to make their money.
How was tekken 6 dumbed down?
Every Japanese dev that supported the Playstation mostly and decided to jump into bed with Xbox as well has been giving us the biggest disappointments this Gen...Yes Namco and Square I'm fucking pointing straight at u....[flushes Tekken 6 and FFXIII down the toilet]
You forgot Crapcom.
thats why tekken 6 flopped sold like 3 million copys by going mulitplatform
I'm a big fan of the tekken series, and I've got no problem with pretty much any gaming franchise going multiplatform, including tekken. What I DO have a problem with, is when one version is ported from the other platform version. As was the case with the PS3 version of Tekken 6...
but Tekken 6 did pretty mediocre in sales compared to the PS3. I can understand putting games out on both systems to make money but developers don't have to put anything on the 360 just to make money.
to bad the best players are on ps3
yea with bland ui,poor online and forced installs upon you.
microsoft isnt really known well in japan. also they hav a bad rep for restricting xbox live stuff. thats why steam isnt on it. i dont get wat happened 2 tekken. used to be awesome back when it was only on playstation. now its really bad.
it's starting to become pathetic what these developers would say for cash; and then contradict their statement and actions down-the-line . in this case. i would, understand saying this, if your game sold more on a specific console, but 'ALL' namco games sell 2-3 times more on the ps3 especially in Japan. he should be pushing for the ps3, but like i stated earlier, he's speaking off persuasion of cash. i mean. it was clearly said to get the japanese developers more on the 360. hm. i wonder why and who it will benefit.
Erm, no. You're losing around 40GB of space to make you games you idiot.
