Why would it be? especially with PS4 dominating sales.

TheWatercooler3441d ago

Exactly. There's no way they would cut out the major audience of the PS4 even for just a little time.

Besides when Mass effect 4 finally releases. Xbone will probably just be a distant memory. PS4 will be dominating that much

Or Sony bankrupt. Let's hope neither happen.

@ryan

I don't see Sony going bankrupt anytime soon considering they have $14-18 billion in cash and short term marketable securities (see link below).

Also Sony has assets worth around $150 billion. They are loosing money but it would take many decades for Sony to truly exhaust all resources even if they were to loose $ every single quarter.

Compared to Nintendo who has $7 billion in cash and short term with $15 billion in asset for comparison. For reference Apple has $25 billion in cash and securities.

On the other hand Microsoft exiting the console biz might bring about another - what many called the "golden age of video gaming" during the PS2 era where small to mid sized dev could make risky games with smaller upfront investment on a single console. Currently the entire middle class has dropped out with only indie and AAA dev shops.

I think I will get this on PS4 assuming it performs better in the console. It will be weird to play my first Mass Effect on PS4 since I played the last trilogy on Xbox. Can't wait for tis game, one of my favorite franchises.

@ugot

Still playing on Xbox One with the awesome voice commands.

@tctczach
You mean the Tomb Raider that is also being developed to perform on last gen hardware? Even though it's launching late 2015? Uncharted 4 says "Hi!". Now that's a hello we can believe in!!

Tctczach3441d ago

@the_dark_one Haha. I'm not denying the money.

joab7773441d ago

Really? They have Tomb Raider, got Ubisoft to dumb down AC:Unity, still have a deal w/ CoD, and who knows what else.

It just means that MS didn't try this time.

DOMination-3441d ago

Yeah because Unity runs so well on ps4. I think thats one conspiracy you can put to bed. If Unity ran at 1080p it would not be able to handle 10 fps

joab7773439d ago

I don't think so. I don't think it was optimized very well. I could be wrong but I honestly think it could.

I havnt had any issues with lag at all, except the occasiona instance, so I'm lucky, cuz i guess others have, but if Ubisoft is guaranteeing A divi on game like what's been shown, I dunno.

who said it will be exclusive

joab7773441d ago

Many thought maybe b/c it used to be an Xbox exclusive that they may have paid to get it early.

And we can't take anyone's word as gospel this early.

Omran3441d ago

I trust shinobi, but maybe there is something happening behind closed doors who knows ! money talks but I hope it will be multiplatform

DOMination-3441d ago

It will be exclusive for five days through EA Access

Regis3440d ago

I don't like that you still have to pay for the full game or have it when its in the vault which will be a long time.

Baka-akaB3441d ago

That would be stupid . it will probably get some exclusive dlc and anticipated EA access however ... wich i dont mind anyway

xX_Altair_Xx3441d ago

This may be the PS4 exclusive that will make everyone 'rage'? You never know...

LaChance3441d ago

EA & MS are best friends. Don't think so.

DOMination-3441d ago

Rage 2

Its kinda in the clue.

Mikey Mike3441d ago

Red Dead II will make everyone rage... LOL
