Since the arrival of "This-Gen" consoles, there's been one big thing that runs riot on the Internet as soon as a new game, or the mention of a new release comes up – Exclusiveness . . . will it be, won't it be, how exclusive will it be. If at all.
u know I always thought all games should be multi, but since 360 is only capable of runnings up to 8.5 G games, its going to be a nasty limit for all ps3 versions. So Ps3 exclusives make since.
Is it fine to write stories or blogs, then submit them as official published news/stories?!? Bloodmask does the same exact crap. Everyone is going to just start writing blogs and submitting their opinions as stories and rumors. More feel good non game articles for the fanboys. 08 is going to be a long one with everyone submitting their own word as gospel.
its gone beyond a joke now. I come here to find gaming news, i find enough spam in the comments section, now these comments are becoming articles? This site is going down hill fast, to much power to the users i guess.
And of course, it was. Its getting sad.
you turn every single piece of news into a flame war
thats the whole f**king problem, this isn't news it's someones blog / opinion.
News written and posted by N4G members isn't news. I guess you think it is? Which is fine.
sorry i dint realize it was written by someone here. To tell you the truth i didnt even read the article lol i just saw the description and then saw your comment.
why don't you just give it up. You bring up one story submitted by me. I notice you don't bring up Predator(the person who actually submitted this story.) You Sony fanboys hide under the guise of actually looking out for the integrity of N4G when in reality you are just throwing a temper tantrum bc this article is stating things that you don't like. Face it, you don't like this article bc it doesn't support your own personal agenda. I know it's cool to hate me bc I give Sony fanboys a hard time. But please drop the BS bravado of your intentions of "looking out" for the better intentions of N4G. Blogs are approved "all the time", it is just the one's that depict the PS3 in a negative light that constantly have multiple BS reports. Give it up, your argument is weak at best. Predator is one of the best contributors to this website. Once again I notice how you don't bring him up at all. Just me and the person who wrote this bc you know "we" are 360 fans. Notice I had nothing to do with submitting this at all. For a further point of reference look at 2 of the hottest stories on the front page. "Both blogs", why no problem with those? http://www.n4g.com/News-957... http://www.n4g.com/xbox360/... Pretty hypocritical don't you think? Now click disagree a million times like you always do.
this crap shouldnt be on here.
In my opinion, the PS3 has some great exclusives like Ratchet & Clank, Uncharted, and Resistance. I better go make a fancy looking blog then and post it as news, right? I mean, unless its wrong to be Pro- Good Games because they are on another platform! Gasp! Or how about I post a blog about how all of MS's worthwhile exclusives are on the PC in SUPERIOR form, thus negating the need to spend $400 on a Read-Ring-Of-Death Box 360? I mean hey, its FACT, it must be news! You foolish fanboys are so wrapped up in Sony vs MS, which is effing stupid, that you ignore that this is all about having FUN and enjoying the GAMES. If you're a 360 fanboy, a fanboy of hardware, I really do pity you. I'll never be so unimaginably stupid as to align myself with a CONSOLE instead of quality titles, whatever system they are on. Have gamers gotten SO bitter at one another simply because they choose one console over another? Why must one HATE a console simply because it isn't their preference? You guys waste so much time arguing over something so petty, this is supposed to be a hobby for fun, and you guys ruin it. Enjoy being fools. I'm going to enjoy titles wherever they may show up, and not knock them for the CONSOLE they are on.
I enjoy the taste of your tears. Just because all of your fellow fanboy enthusiasts do it, doesn't make it acceptable on the site. I am reporting you to the admins.
You are the one crying over this article being posted not me. I am just telling it like it is. Go ahead and report me. What have I done wrong? "Just because all of your fellow fanboy enthusiasts do it, doesn't make it acceptable on the site." Are you calling Predator a 360 fanboy enthusiast? He is the one who submitted this story you know.
*lick* if you are too daft to understand that XboxOZ360 is the one behind this story, you really are dumb as salt. just fyi.. I'm a ps360pc`er. Your silly Sony hate rolllllllssss offfa my back, and onto my quad core :)
Since people troll it's ok for bloodmask to do it as well. Thats his whole mentality. "Predator is one of the best contributors to this website. Once again I notice how you don't bring him up at all. and "I notice you don't bring up Predator" Certainly seems to be truth supported with facts unlike the sh1t you post. The more you talk the dumber your appearing. Any of this sound familiar also? it should because it came from you. "You Sony fanboys hide under the guise" "I know it's cool to hate me bc I give Sony fanboys a hard time" you need to stop looking at what other people are doing and worry about yourself and your actions not those of others. I know it's obviously a tough concept for you to grasp but im sure you will learn it before becomming a adult
How is trolling brought up? If you would notice this article is in the gaming section of this website. Not PS3. Notice how this Blademask character brings "me" up in his original post because he thinks it is fun to hate on me. "Is it fine to write stories or blogs, then submit them as official published news/stories?!? Bloodmask does the same exact crap." Why bring me up in this post?
Blogs have no place on this site and ought to be reported regardless of which platform they support. The fact you have been a great contributer to this site in the past gives you no 'divine right' to sh*t on it now, and if you can't see that writting and tipping your own blog is a blatently ridiculous thing to allow on this site, then you really don't have the kind of intellect you try to show you have. If you trully have this site and its users needs at the forefront of your priorities, then you would put your hands up and admit that approving all such blogs and BS news, is completely out of order. You won't do this, because you blatently have an agenda and simply hide behind a previously good contribution record. Give us all one good reason why a blog by someone with no industrty credentials or insight is news here?? Just one. Any reason? No.. I thought not. Pointing a finger at other bad behaviour by other morons on this site and saying 'but they did it too', is acting like a child in a play ground. If your action is defendable, then simply defend it with a good reason - not this 'most of my actions are good so I should be able to get away with it for mate' defence. If you can properly explain why a blog article of this nature is good for the site, I'll happily agree. As it is, this is absolute BS, and your approval speaks volumes about your real intentions here, despite your constant desire to link to your exceptional stats.
" Assassin’s Creed, Haze, Unreal Tournament III, LA Noir, Crysis (PC- 360), Devil May Cry, Resident Evil, Just Cause 2 (360 - PS3) etc are just me examples of so-called exclusive titles that are in fact multiplatform. Some having information dating back a few years indicating their multiplatform credentials, but now being completely ignored" by the die-hard fans of primarily the Sony Playstation brigade".
I love how the "article" is essentially PS3 bashing, then goes on in the final paragraphs to suck Halo's phallus. Real quality writing there, eh? God, this site is getting more and more pathetic everyday. I also like how he fails to mention all the Xbox 360 "exclusives" that are going to the PC (Gears, Bioshock, and if you think Halo 3 or Mass Effect are safe, you're kidding yourself) as well as all the 360 titles going to the PS3 (hello Condemned, Eternal Sonata, Saint's Row, Lost Planet...). Want to know why more devs are jumping ship from the Playstation brand to the Xbox brand with their titles? Because outside of Ninja Gaiden, the original Xbox DIDN'T HAVE ANY MAJOR FRANCHISES TO LOSE... Gasp!
Yea I don't get it. I myself as a PC gamer, the xbox360 offers nothing new or exclusive to me. I have played many FPS and as I have posted many times on here that, Halo is a Average shooter. Having played tons of FPS and then picking up halo I was severly dissapointed. On a side note To this day I say Goldeneye 007 for the N64 is the best console shooter ever.
I always laughed when i hear the sound of this "Lazer-Pew-Pew-Machine-Gu n" I ask me everytime, why does this game became famous? I mean.. its nothing against Unreal Tournament, but everyone has hyped it so high, its a bad game, with a bad story, and a average multiplayer. Unreal Tournament IS a Multiplayer Game, and when people say: UHHHHH The Singleplayer Mode is gäy! I dont understand them, its a Multiplayer game, and they are just jealous cause the pc gamer and the playstation gamer have the game, when its out for xbox they make faked comparisions about the versions and say: UHHH!! Its looking soo sh!tty on the ps3! uhhhh! I mean.. why dont they accept it, Halo is not a good game, its for gamers that are 12-16 and began to play videogames their first time.. nya just like the xbox fanbase generelly is. Nevermind, u are totally right, Halo is a dissapointment
This was my favorite part and why blogs should not be allowed in any shape or form. From the comment sections (XboxOZ360) "It’s interesting to note now that the Sony fans aren’t out in the public too much over Unreal Tournament 3 . . . as it’s supposed Nov ‘07 release for the PS3 has been delayed, and will be released in ‘08 alongside the Xbox 360 version. The PC Version gets released on or around the 18th Nov ‘07 . . ." Not only is the blog out of date, it is totally wrong (on this point) as well.
I would ban people instantly for pulling such stupid sh1t whether their name brand of choice is sony, nintendo or microsoft.
Did you people see that Mini gun in that HAZE screen? I hope there is an achievement for Mini gun kills. On topic: This article is slanted? (ONLY TO SONY GAMERS) Over all this article points out that Sony has lost allot of so-called exclusives over the past 2 years. I do not think the article was meant to bash SONY. IT was meant to point out that the titles that are being released cost allot for publishers and developers. The cost alone is forcing game to go multi platform. Could you imagine how it would feel to be a dev. or publisher who spends $10 - $20 million to put a game together and only sell 400,000 copies. Developer royalties range from $15.00 - $20.00. The 360's average cost for dev. is $5 - $10 million. The PS3 is $10 - $20 million and for some developers it has been allot higher cost than this. To recoup and stay exclusive they will need to sell at least 1 million up front. 1 million upfront just breaks even every thing else is profit. If it takes a game 1 or 2 years to sell 1 million then as a Developer or publisher you are in trouble. If porting the game to the 360 would keep your lights on then it would behoove you to make the port.
Yet the article fails to mention how all the "big" 360 exclusives are going to the PC, leaving it to a little blurb at the end. The purpose of this "article" is quite obvious, regardless of any true basis it may have. I mean, I could go on and on about how Halo 3 and Mass Effect WILL be on the PC, in superior form, just as Bioshock and Gears of War are... or how the 360 is losing exclusives like Eternal Sonata, Saints Row, Condemned, Lost Planet... but then I'd be a "Sony fanboy" wouldn't I?
any xbox 360 exclusive that goes to the pc is still a xbox 360 exclusive. The xbox 360 is in competition with ps3 not the pc so any game that the xbox 360 has that the ps3 doesnt is an exclusive as far as im concerned. And im not an "xbot" im gonna buy a ps3 really soon. : )
I know that Crazy. But for someone who has a gaming PC, like me, it negates the need to spend the $$$ on the system. You are definitely right though, it just annoys me at how bitter people are. 90% of the people who bash the PS3 do so because its the popular thing to do, and have never even played it. Once I sat my friends down to check it out, and titles like Ratchet, they stopped the hate and considered buying one. I just hate the stupidity that permeates the web. It's sad.
my friend has it i just cant get enough of it. i finally have the money to buy it now. Thank you for not being like everyone else who would just type xbot or something.
you just can't stop the trend, most of my friends still think Wii kick ass....i mean....meh and for xbox360, they are just blinded by tons of the articles flooded on the web and they just think every single game is better on 360 (even COD 4..meh) and i would say they are brainwashed to some extend...
The term is multiple platform. Not Multiple Console. If you can play a game on multiple platforms, it is NOT an exclusive.
like i said before you can call it whatever you want but in the end if the ps3 doesnt have it thats all that matters and if the dev does decide to port there game tot he ps3 good for them more money
Why would I call you an Xbot Crazy? You presented yourself with a good clear point and acted like a man... unlike most fanboys who simply piss and moan and align themselves with a console, it's sad. Though Mask has a point... people keep pushing PC gaming as having a comeback. If the title is on the PC and 360, it IS multiplatform. Does that benefit Sony? No. But is it a factor in deciding to buy a 360? I think so. Why should I spend the $ if I can just get the game on the PC? Again, it depends on your situation and where you stand as far as consoles owned and titles desired. Then there are the situations like Ninja Gaiden Sigma. Xbots would go on and on about how it isn't a PS3 exclusive, since it was on the original Xbox (in a stripped down form). Well, they need to make up their minds, and stop picking and choosing what titles and arguments benefit their POV. It's either ONLY on ONE console, or it isn't. If that makes sense... TO THAMMER - Um, I'm not trying to discredit anything. But if I can buy a game like Bioshock on my PC, that's one less reason FOR ME to buy a 360. $450 for Gears, or $50 for Gears? I have options, thus it isn't exclusive. That's all I'm saying. I think the 360 has quite a strong lineup, as do the PS3 and Wii. You need to relax a little me thinks. As for Assassin's Creed, you realize it was debuted at the X05 event in the form of Project Assassin long before it was ever "PS3 Exclusive." That whole situation is just silly, and now its repeating with Haze, so I don't know why anyone is surprised about either one frankly. But hey, if bashing me makes you feel better, more power to you.
It is time for this to stop. What you people are doing here is trying to discredit the 360's exclusive games line up. Granted by book definition a game that is on two platforms is not exclusive. Which only a fool would argue with. Look at it like this if the game is not available to you on the Wii or the PS3 but is available for you on 360 or PC then that game is exclusive to those platforms. If the game is a timed exclusive then it is temporarily exclusive. Games like Assassins Creed were originally announced as PS3 exclusives once it was announced as a 360 games then that exclusive status/title was lost. If the games were only listed a PS3/PC then it would still be exclusive because you could not get it on 360. Look a Bio Shock. This game is exclusive to Games for Windows and 360. That does not mean that the PC platform
