Is it slimy? No doubt, but Square knows very well how much passion and loyalty comes with VII and they're going to capitalize off of that.
They're charging people to play old games on their console, so... Not backward compatibility. Don't give them too much credit
Believable. Gears 4, Quantum Break, Scalebound, Halo Wars 2, ReCore, Crackdown 3, and Sea of Thieves are not only double to triple A, but are first party so they'll never release for PS4.
Also was it Aaron Greenberg who said they're planning EVER MORE Xbox One game announcements for 2016? The best is indeed yet to come either way... Here are some predictions:
March- Killer Instinct
April- Quantum Break
After the Call of Duty marketing deal and how much they're putting into VR, Sony only has so much to work with and probably can't keep making exclusive third party deals like this.
Reasons already listed for PS4
Quantum Break, Gears 4, Scalebound, ReCore, Crackdown 3, and Halo Wars 2
Two Zelda games, Star Fox Zero, Pokken Tournament, and the possibility of a new console which of course would bring it's own software
Scalebound. That is all.
"A lot of people thought 'Why are they charging for guns?' We did the research and noticed that a lot of players were having trouble jumping into the game for the first time, so we wanted to give people a weapon that was easily accessible and would give them a bit of a leg-up."
What ever happened to letting those players get better in skill the more they played?
That's a pretty bad excuse. To succeed later on, you must fail at the start.
No dedicated servers/ 5v5.Thankfully it's still a ways off (around six months).
Where did Phil allude to not having the games to satisfy Xbox One players?
Imagine how much of an uproar there would be if Microsoft didn't have backwards compatibility and announced more remasters are on the way.
I thought Sacred 2 and 3 were suppose to be on there?
Good thing first party is what Phil Spencer and crew will be focussing on.
They're dropping the 500GB?
Is the Remedy announcement tomorrow?
You'll be 75 years old by then brother.
How does Turn 10 do it? xD
Everyone's always hoping for Xbox One exclusives.
They're taking the criticism from last year of showing CGi trailers (Scalebound, Crackdown, and Phantom Dust) and turning this year's conference into a gameplay based showing, which is awesome.
Also strong first party presences for both conferences? We should see the new IP projects Twisted Pixel and Press Play have been working on, along with what I'd imagine to be a classic franchise comeback from Rare.
