Doesn't mean anything...just means that all those games that might have been exclusive only for the PlayStation 4 can and most likely will go to the Xbox One as well.

Means nothing only that the games will be coming to Xbox

It's funny how dismissive people are being towards the seriousness of the loss of SOE. Seeing as if Nintendo announced the loss of Retro then the world would see it a sign of the end times. I suppose the always wise and wonderful Sony can do no wrong. meanwhile I will enjoy playing Planetside 2 of the Xbox.

'' I suppose the always wise and wonderful Sony can do no wrong...''

Your are so stupid.

Do you know why we don't bat an eye over this? Because these guys were PC developers. Even if they were owned by sony, they put PC first. They aren't really popular in the PlayStation Ecosystem either, so why should we be concerned about their departure? Their games will still come to PS4. At least be happy those games will come to Xbox now.

''if Nintendo announced the loss of Retro then the world would see it a sign of the end times. ''

Just like if Sony sells Naughty Dog or any of their devs. Why? Because they are 1st party devs who make 1st party content. Their loss will be a sign for concern.

OH NO!!!! damnit, well I guess I'll keep my PS4 and play it on that...

I doubt anyone buys consoles purely for MMOs. This is not a big deal, most of the games they release are on Windows anyway.

SOE was never part of PlayStation.
PlayStation did receive some games but they were housed under an entirely different umbrella.

"meanwhile I will enjoy playing Planetside 2 of the Xbox."

lol

Have fun with that. 2+ years in development and 99% of PS4 owners still can't play it. Surely the Xbox version won't be far behind.

to

meh, who cares about these games anyway

Well to be honest when were they ever? SOEs free to play models are horrid and after they announced the fact that the ps4 version of the game will have to cut 800 players I was kinda turned off from it.

In truth that is what a real downgrade looks like, not lesser resolution or lower frame rate. If this is what we can expect from their games on consoles, then yes I believe it is going to qualify as a "meh".

So, if there's 800 players on the PS4, and Xbone is 50% weaker than the PS4, then that only leaves 400 players on your Xbone. Enjoy the downgrade :D
