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?
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.
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.
"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
"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.
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 lost an exclusive AND YOU KNOW THAT. You all still sore over Assassins Creed. GET A LIFE PEOPLE!!!
YOU FAIL...YOU FAIL... YOU FAIL... GAME OVER.
The 'article' was and is never meant to be "NEWS" . . . but a take on "Exclusiveness" within the gaming market today. If people bother to read the entire thing,check outthe links to support the comments, and also see that the Xbox360 camp gets a bash as well, they'll see it's in no way a Sony Bashing event . . . it's meant to have people think about how there's a change in the developers and publishers way of thinking regarding "Exclusiveness" in games.
Of course, if you quote things out of context, and miss quoting the next few lines where xbox fans get a jab, then of course it will 'look' one sided.
Many a 360, PC or PS3 game will become a port at one stage or another (note I said many, not all), if the developer, via the publisher naturally, decided it's time to go mutliplatform. Bizarre will do so now that it's an "independent" developer, as will others, once more MS only base development studios take to the "other side" (all platforms)
The website is about disseminating information . . . not JUST news . . . and for the most part, most of the news is regurgitated stuff from different websites, just dished up in another form. The article in question here, as well as others, aren't listed as NEWS, but simply of Items Of Interest for those following gaming in general. To have them mull over some of the comments and contents and perhaps do some 'thinking' about their hobby (in some case it's obviously an obsession for some - too much so unfortunately)
If Blogs were ruled out of this website, close to 50 - 70 % of the "news" would not be available for YOU to read, as a great deal of it comes from well known bloggers such as Surfergirl, Dean Takahashi and other leading industry insiders, via their blogs.
If this sites suffers from anything, it suffers from extreme fanboy flame wars, which are fueled mostly over very little other than small indifference . . . and a blind faith to one platform or another, which often makes one unable to simple read something for what it is . . . . with the unwillingness to even read items for whatever reasons, simply because it has "the other" platform mentioned in it. Plus it's amazing how someone can comment on something someone has NOT read, and do so in such an authoritative manner as well . . . scratches head.
Thanks to the poster who could see past the blinkered view of some members in here. The item was meant to have one think, not create a platform war.
ANd for those that think I work for or am associated with N4G.com, I'm no more associated with it than you are . . . and, like you, I also have a right to voice my thoughts, and I do so, as do my other writes, via our blog . . .
this "article" is nothing more than b1tch crying over exclusives not coming to the 360. the author is trying to justify why these games should be on xbox, but does not make any statement as to why 360 exclusives aren't on the ps3 (halo 3, gears, etc...)
this along with the article "metal gear for 360" just goes to show that 360 rtards have to constantly justify being who they are, overhyping every single 360 game like its GOTY and then whining when other platforms get AAA games. They will say things like "Uncharted wouldn't be in the top 5 if it were a 360 game" yet cry like babies when it wins runner up for GOTY at kotaku.
When the ps3 beats the 360 in WW sales, they say "its all about the software", even though every single 360 game is hyped to death and everyone gets dissapointed when they actually play them. 360 rtards cannot accept that the Wii has already taken the #1 spot in the console race, and now their only hope is that the ps3 doesn't catch fire and start selling like crazy.
They call for price cuts on the 360 to "destroy the ps3 even further" because they are now afraid. They see the sales numbers, they see the 08 lineup, they see the worldwide demand for ps3, they see the ps3 almost at 9 million in 1 year, and they are afraid, very, very, afraid.
It is not that the point you are making about the PC ports is wrong it is just that that fact takes nothing away from the credibliity of the 360 platform.
actually from a PC gamers point of view every xbox game that goes pc "which is 90% of the AAA titles for the xbox" is one less reason for me to ever considering making the purchase. the pc ports are usually superior in every aspect including online support.
this alone is why i will never purchase a xbox 360 it simply doesnt offer anything exclusive i can't get on a PC in a Superior form
For most gamers upgrading your PC to handel those games would cost the amount of a PS3 or 360. I like to game on a console personally so a games exclusive status means nothing to me.
This type of crap is only coming from SONY fans who are used to saying this games is only on PS. XBOT's are the problem here right..? I think not. Blame it on the engineers of the consoles and the publishers and developers.
Most XBOX haters do not have a valid reason to hate they just choose to do so because for the FUD and envy the games line up.
Most of the games are not exclusive, they can be found on pc or ps3.
sorry xbots its true.... thats why I always refer to the xbox as a poor mans pc.
The only for sure exclusives are first party games, anything is fair game for any console now with dev budgets rising out of control.
Well for starters we can probably tell which games are exclsuives and which are not.
HAze is going on the 360, MGS4 is not, A couple of the 360's games thatare on the pc aswell are going to the ps3. ex. left 4 dead,age of conan, etc.
Still, I wish we could all have halo3 or mgs4.
Short answer yes there will still be exclusive games
The consoles are too widespread for having all multiplatform games. It wouldnt be fair. Every PS3 game will have to be 5 hours with online play and development time will have to be split 3 ways.
is a little dated. Since October things have changed.
