Of course the Microsoft Executives are going to say how good their exclusives are, just like how Sony will say how good The Order and Bloodborne are lol

scark923095d ago

They would be doing a terrible job otherwise xD

amiga-man3095d ago (Edited 3095d ago )

Yes I'm sure I would trust the guys in suits who have probably never played a game in their lives to tell me how fun it is.

Still as has been pointed out they are just doing their job, but seriously what else are they going to say?

dcbronco3095d ago

Amiga actually guys in suits doesn't really apply to tech companies. More than likely most Microsoft executives are probably gamers. And that goes for most tech companies. See Apple's history for what happens when you bring in non tech people. They may not know the x's and o's. But more than likely they like gaming. I mean be realistic. Most of the people on these forums are or wish they were in the industry. Most of those executives started out in similar circumstances to us.

AngelicIceDiamond3095d ago

I think its more due to the fact of the status of the games.

Crackdown is shaping up ok which indicates its probably further along than we initially thought.

amiga-man3095d ago (Edited 3095d ago )

Sorry dcbronco this is MS we are talking about their roots are not in gaming but spreadsheets and operating systems, you only have to look at the people they have put in charge and the stupid decisions they have made to see that, Spencer is probably one of the few gamers they have Arron Greenberg certainly isn't

I'm sorry but they are not people I would listen to about gaming.

DLConspiracy3095d ago


Jeeesh way to take the piss out of the fun... Nothing like a low blow in an up beat comment.

Haki11123095d ago

idk why anyone would disagree with this it's 120% true lol

greenlantern28143095d ago

Wouldn't it be hilarious if sony executives came out and where like man The Order looks boring. Or MS executives said boy that Crackdown looks like crap.
Oh I am fired, but why?
What do people really expect them to do.

Azzanation3094d ago

Mark Cerny said Knack was fantastic so this is no surprise for any executives to praise there own products.

Yes it shows, like when you go to the movies like Guardians of the Galaxy and people boo at the Xbox One commercials. Real progress.

whoyouwit043095d ago

if you are at a movie and you boo because of a game commercial for the competition of your preferred system then you are taking this game thing to serious. when you are at the theater you are normally with your girl, so why the hell are you even thinking about a console war at that point and time. I mean seriously, some people just need to get a life.

Sayai jin3095d ago

@Whoyou...shush. You are making to much sense. It's sad really. I took the little league team I coach to a see Transformers. There were other little league baseball teams in the theater at the same time. I did not hear any of the 7 - 12 year olds booing during these commercial. They must be more mature than the people the OP was talking about.

Mega243095d ago

Some people are taking it to serious, this fanboys are acting like sports fans, the ones who beat each other at the games. Messed up.

CloudRap3095d ago (Edited 3095d ago )

Xbox One hate seems to be at an all time high this week not sure what is maybe EA access stirred some jealousy Im not sure but I only come here for a laugh anyways IGN is where I get my news at least they dont make their biases as obvious, you say anything proMS around here and they will literally silence you thats why the bubble system's flawed and this website sucks. It really says something when the top stories are no longer actual news and just become fanboys writing articles to incite other fanboys.

700p3095d ago

They were probably social degens who have no friends. Kinda sad really.

Really shows to what length Sony Fanboys go. Sony Fanboys, they don't love their own console.. they just hate yours.

Infamous2983095d ago (Edited 3095d ago )

Once again, a typical xbox fanboy judging a fanbase because of the acts of few.

marlinfan103095d ago

He said sony fanboys not sony fans. Just like you said xbox fanboy, are you clumping all xbox owners together when you say that?

christocolus3095d ago


Lol.. Who would do that?.. A bunch of kids with a complex i guess.

DJustinUNCHAIND3095d ago

So you were the frumpy kid in the DBZ virgin armor yelling at the screen!

greenlantern28143095d ago

I have been to numerous movies where people cheered the TF, XB1 ads. Neither statement really proves anything

HollywoodLA3094d ago

Wait, did that really happen? I know you have one bubble, can you actually expound on that? Did that happen, or are you making that up?

People booed an xbox ad in the theatre? Send me a private message.

Get those exclusives out there MS.

The first Crackdown was really cool,hope they can capture the feel of that game again.m Fable legends is something new. The heroes vs villain gameplay seems intuitive.. Hope i can afford all these games when they finally come out.

Glad to see MS pushing exclusive ips. Hopefully we will see something amazing from Remedy and Rare at Gamescom.

AnteCash3095d ago (Edited 3095d ago )

Just buy them from STEAM when they port them to PC.
It really cheap.
yep ,you mad becuz they ARE going to PC.


@kavorkien LOOL a sony exclusive going to pc , you got wild imagination.
Let me check steam for , killzone, god of war , gran turismo, Last of us,resistance,infamous, ect.

marlinfan103095d ago (Edited 3095d ago )

Is this the new thing were gonna have to hear about every time a xbox games mentioned?


why would i care where they end up? thats more money for the devs which then means more games for us. you guys are the ones trying to make it into a big deal. so far ryse and dr3 have been announced to be going over to pc. both of which are developed by struggling devs that are rumored to have money problems. it'd only make sense for them to try and get some more money by releasing on another platform.

Kavorklestein3095d ago

Good Idea! I'll just go ahead and do that with bloodbourne! /s

Although Fromsoftware did hide their PC version of Dark Souls 2 from PC for a while, so who knows?

I don't really care, but I just felt like poking a hole in your bubble lol

christocolus3095d ago (Edited 3095d ago )


Dude are you ok? Or is that a joke? I'm happy with my xbox one and really looking forward to playing some great exclusives on it but how is that any business of yours? I'm a big console gamer and i don't game much on pc.

You guys are hilarious,you keep looking for the most pathetic ways to take jabs at the definitly have to be insecure about something to act so naïve,also releasing them on pc brings more income to the devs but I honestly didn't know scalebound, fable legends,quantum break,halo5, gears,crackdown,d4 would all be coming to pc.when did MS make the announcement? Oh they didn't..its just one of the many delusions in your heads..smh

now kindly run along kid or go play with your pals on the other side.

MasterCornholio3095d ago


Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't Sony Japan Studios helping From Software develop the game and isn't it being published by Sony as well?

So how is it going to come out for PC?

I'm just wondering since your suggesting that which means you have some information to share or your lying about it.

Kavorklestein3095d ago

@ Master cornholio-
It was sarcasm. It was basically a 'turn the tables' and say x game is coming to pc so why buy it on PS4 comment to show how stupid it is to think that every single game is gonna be on pc or ps4, when they aren't, except special situations.

Lenrulesdaworld3095d ago

Actually crackdown & quantum break are ms owned ip's dont those games will come to pc. But those 3rd party ip's like ryse and dr3, they gotta stop with that bs. More than likely a mattrick move being these were lauch titles, hopefully future games will be owned ip's or lifetime exclusives. Being phil is the head of xbox now, looking forward to gamescom bring on battletoads. Rumor by the way from some UK friends.

Knucklez5043095d ago

lmfao ummmm where are these FACTS you claim here?

BallsEye3094d ago (Edited 3094d ago )

Do you, MS hater realize that Windows is a MICROSOFT PLATFORM just like XBOX ONE? By loving your windows pc with games on it, you love MS. Hypocricy of sony fanboys.

Cmon , you know that they will come to PC, stop lying to your self.
Good Day Sir!

Volkama3095d ago

As an xbox owner I will be happy to see all the exclusives go PC. Every single one. Well, I guess not kinect games.

If a game isn't taking advantage of a unique feature of the console, why should I want it to stay exclusive? I would be happy to hear Sony doing the same thing, or MS also publishing the PS4.

Exclusivity doesn't benefit me in the slightest. Just makes the hobby more expensive.

Concertoine3095d ago (Edited 3095d ago )

I feel like it takes away from the identity of the console. You shouldve been there when KH1.5 had a petition for 360, this website was on its head.

Spotie3095d ago

That's stupid. If they all go to PC, what the hell is the point in buying the console?

Sony and Nintendo's exclusives- especially the first party ones- will never be on PC. So if you wanna play them, you need the appropriate hardware. Right now, there's one exclusive that isn't on PC for the XB1 in Forza; how is Microsoft gonna convince people on the fence with ONE actual exclusive? To say nothing of inferior multiplats or anything else.

This is something Microsoft cannot allow.

Volkama3095d ago (Edited 3095d ago )

Scenario a- I have to pay £350 for a console to play some particular games.

Scenario b- I can play those games without spending £350.

Can you see how that might be a good thing from my perspective? Even before considering how much better the games can run on my PC?

Yes, I understand it does not help Microsoft control the industry. That isn't really any concern of mine.

greenlantern28143095d ago (Edited 3095d ago )

I agree people shouldn't bring up xb1 exclusives going to PC as a bad thing.
1) the games that are currently going over Ryse and DR3 have been out since the systems launch and have probably gotten all the sales they can or feel they can.
2) if your gonna buy an xb1 it is most likely this won't stop you.
3) games on PC benefit MS, pc generally fun MS operating systems an use other MS software. So as far as MS is concerned hoary for us.

Lenrulesdaworld3095d ago

Then there would be no point for separate consoles brotha, should just be one console with a monopoly on all games & pricing would be bananas.

Volkama3095d ago

Pricing wouldn't be bananas. You'd still have publishers competing against each other for the same pot of consumer money they fight over today.

It's wrestle some control from the platform holders, and in turn knock down royalties so in theory it could make games cheaper.
