Cross-gen development hinders the current gen version because it has to be made scaleable. Without this anchor, they can achieve more. Plus, Sony wants to sell PS4s.
And without incentive to get a new one, this will remain the case. Which is my entire point.
There will always be tons of people that can't afford to make the jump. That's what exclusives are supposed to entice them to do. If they can't afford it yet, they don't get it yet. I get why EA wants it, and I get why MS conceded. Still think it was a mistake when you consider that they want it to be system seller.
So why should this be called out? Why are video games exempt from pushing these boundaries and envelopes when other artforms have been doing this since the beginning of time? Why does games media think one is OK but not the other?
They ask. Can't be helped if people don't answer.
Wow, a LOT of ridiculous reactions in this thread.
That's what early adopters do. They buy in on the promise of what's coming.
There are 4 top 5 lists here. Lol. All of the editors at the site posted a list.
Very. I've played all the Hitman games save for the first one and it's a really good entry. Contracts mode is awesome.
@rdgneoz Who said "right" after the fact?
They didn't push it back TO downgrade. They wanted to make sure the game was fun. I'm sure trying to get everything to work well on both generations made the visuals suffer in the process.
Uhm, an apology can only be given after the fact and it pretty much is exactly owning up to a mistake. Not arguing any of your other points though.
Ubisoft is pushing back against WiiU owners. Ooooh! I'll show myself out.
Very cool. Keep your eyes peeled. I am gestating on one regarding the supposed "all-digital" future. Like us on Facebook and you'll get all of our updates!
Thanks for for reading. It's not just Titanfall that is making me buy the system. But rather it's the first game that is making me pull the trigger on it. As I said in the article, I do love the Xbox brand and has they not reversed their policies, I would be owning only a PS4 this generation. So technically, I'm putting out on the second date;)
The "Them" in the title are fans of the policy before the reversal. The "us" are people like me, who are fans of the way things are now.
Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment! I like the way you think! ;)
Wow, thanks everyone for reading and commenting!
I absolutely believe Titanfall 2 will be on PS4. MS is investing in this one game. EA probably didn't go for franchise exclusivity because they wanted to see how this plays out. With the PS4 outselling the Xbox One, in 2 - 3 years you are looking at what could be triple or quadruple the current install base, if not more. That's a lot of money to leave on the table and would require a LOT of money for MS to pony up to keep it off of PS4. That said, I think MS even kno...
