Why Smite On Xbox One Is A Big Deal

Pixel Gate writes:

''If there’s one announcement that shocked me the most at Microsoft’s Gamescom conference, it was the reveal of Smite on Xbox One. It’s a reveal that has seemingly made barely any impact, no reaction from the Xbox faithful… and that’s a real shame. Perhaps it’s the fact the game has no hype behind it in terms of console users, maybe it’s the alien concept, or maybe people just have no clue what Smite is.''

Or maybe people are so caught up in the tomb raider announcement. that no one can focus on anything else that was shown.

Looks solid. But considering the hate that PS4 gets for Indies why would the xbox faithful care?

"But considering the hate ps4 get for indie why would the xbox faithful care?"

Maybe you should ask some of your ps4 faithfuls that same thing since its not just xbox fans saying something about ps4 becoming a indie console.

TFJWM1585d ago

@vega275 are you trying to tell me that PS fans are always saying INDIEstation4 and ripping on their gamerscom because it had too many indies...

vega2751585d ago

No im telling you that x1 owners aren't the only one complaining about indie on the ps4. Not every one who says something about it is a x1 owner.

It's the 1st console MOBA. Could be bigger than Tomb Raider. Tomb raider is good and all but it's another pretty 8-10 hr experience, not the possibility of 100s and 100s of hrs of gameplay.

Not really since it Free on PC. I have had since it Close Beta.

Well I really dont think most console gamers are PC gamers, something console gamers only care to highlight when it benefits them in the fanboy wars. They are at the end of the day for the most part different markets, so it actually is more of a big deal than you think. If they were the same market Minecraft would not be so successful on consoles alone.

I thought it looked good and will pre order soon.

Volkama1585d ago

Looks pretty smooth and I'd rather play a MOBA on a console than a PC. Click-to-move is just a poor control scheme imo.

But I would rather have one that I can just buy, rather than a free or cheap game augmented with micro-transactions.

I will definitely give Smite a look.

Slothnut1585d ago

I actually got really excited when I heard this news today i always thought it would make for an awesome console game. I'm gonna be hooked.

redwin1584d ago (Edited 1584d ago )

I totally agree, my fiends and I are already talking about it. We are definitely getting it.

Now I'm waiting on this and Warframe to come.
