Seems like it's PS4 exclusive

Abriael3973d ago

It's not been confirmed as an exclusive at the presentation. They just mentioned it'll be on PS4.

Possibly they're waiting to announce excliusivity (or lack of thereof) it at TGS.

Or maybe they're just waiting to see if Microsoft will moneybag them lol.

sobotz3973d ago

Or maybe it's exclusive in Japan. Xbox One got delayed there. maybe.

ShugaCane3973d ago

Right now it don't care about the exclusivity thing, I just want to know what kind of online it is. If it's like Demon's Souls, I'm super fine. If it's an always Online, MMORPG kind of game, I'll be highly disappointed.

sobotz3973d ago

It's COG, I'm pretty sure it's a MMORPG, the games had a graphics downgrade too. Really disappointed

Abriael3973d ago (Edited 3973d ago )

@ShugaCane: it could very probably be what the Japanese call an "Online RPG", like Phantasy Star Online 2, basically an heavily instanced MMORPG with a lobby location and instanced dungeons.

Japanese developers seem to love that genre.

ShugaCane3973d ago


Oh I love PSO. But I was still expecting something completely different for Deep Down. The first demo impressed me so much. And I hate it when my expectations are crushed down lol. Anyway, I'm still eager to see more. As you said, TGS will most probably bring light upon this mysterious project.

Abriael3973d ago (Edited 3973d ago )

@ShugaCane: I just found and translated some more info. It's identified as a "Raiding" RPG (whatever it means, capcom loves to make up genres), and a network connection is required.

MWH3973d ago

I thought it would be on par with Dark Souls, it will be disappointing if i's an online only game.

nveenio3973d ago

"Reading RPG"? So probably something a little like what Quantic Dream does? Minimal interaction? A choose-you-own-adventure book meets PS4?

Interesting idea...though I would be disappointed if we don't get to explore that beautiful engine at our own pace.

ABizzel13973d ago

I think Capcom's waiting to see if PS4 is really going to blow the competition away like the pre-orders and publicity make it seem. If PS4 is neck and neck with X1 it's going to be multiplat, if PS4 has a solid lead (around 3 - 5+ million by holiday 2014) then it's exclusive.

thechosenone3973d ago (Edited 3973d ago )

a bunch of videos showing off the tech from the Panta Rhei engine. looks f**king fantastic!

gaffyh3973d ago

Will probably be like Dark Souls/Demon's Souls online by the looks of it. However, if you pause the video at the right times, you can see in game footage, and it looks nowhere near as good as the demo they showed on stage at the PS4 reveal :(

fr0sty3972d ago (Edited 3972d ago )

The game is likely far too early in development for Capcom to be able to present it to companies that may be interested in exclusivity/making it go multiplatform. As of now, PS4 is the lead platform, and if Capcom can show Sony a good enough looking game as it progresses, Sony might just cut that check to make it exclusive. However, I doubt it's at a point where either Sony or MS would be willing to pay for it yet. So, time will tell. I damn sure wouldn't pay millions of dollars for a tech demo, I'd want to know exactly how the game will play.

DonFreezer3972d ago

Lol.Maybe they're just waiting to see if Sony will moneybag them to keep it exclusive.

EXVirtual3972d ago

Just like MS moneybagged KH3 and FFXV.

Rimeskeem3972d ago

By sony standards it will take ages for them to release info if its exclusive or not

ZBlacktt3972d ago

If that were the case then they would not be solely letting Sony take all the credit.

evilhasitsway3972d ago


No offline mode seems to be present as an internet connection is explicitly required, and “Online Only” is mentioned as well.

did you even read the article?

mikeslemonade3972d ago

I hope i'm wrong but this game is probably going to be a let down in terms of graphics. It's 95% chance going to be multiplatform and might even be multi-generational too. And also where my biggest doubt comes from is since when has capcom made a threshold on graphics. It hasn't been since RE4 when Capcom pushed the boundary in the visual fidelity.

They have made some amazing trailers but the game will probably not look like "that". Because if it did it will be the best looking games for next-gen when it comes out.

Keregan3972d ago

Abriael you shouldn't be allow to answer people at will. The father will be really disappointed

DragonKnight3972d ago

Anyone know what a "Reading RPG" is? If it means primarily text based with cutscenes, then I'm happy to pass this online only game up.

PlayStation is the land of RPG's.

black0o3973d ago


is it me or the 1st revel looked way better :S

torchic3973d ago

all PS4 is missing is an in-house RPG (preferably from Sony Santa Monica) and a Mistwalker game. Sakaguchi & Uematsu's return to PlayStation is only inevitable now with the poplularity and ease-of-development of PS4

DonFreezer3972d ago

We do we laugh? The ps3 had almost half the rpgs of the Xbox 360.

HammadTheBeast3973d ago (Edited 3973d ago )

Looks like Skyrim. I'm hoping there are more environments than just dark caves with torches...

Christopher3973d ago

Probably just timed exclusive if it is.
