Following a video from Eurogamer Portugal, rumors erupted that PS4 Exclusive 'Rime' would be heading towards the XBox One as well. In recent tweets developer Tequila Works denies this rumor.
Rime is an amazing looking title. Will definitely be a strong addition to the PlayStation library
The music, visual style and setting amazes me. Can't wait for this beauty. Reminds me a lot of The Windwaker and Ico.
There are two composers for the game and one of them happens to be the legendary Akira Yamaoka. Yea wrap your head around that one. Very different kind of project for him.
All I need is a release date
Rime is published by Sony Computer Entertainment. It won't be on anything except Playstation.
Yeah, just like Mass Effect 1 that was published by MS... Oh, wait...
@ xHEAVYx name the last Playstation exclusive to end up on xbox.... I'll wait.
@PSIN4MANT He wasn't being serious, just taking a jab at Microsoft.
He was taking a jab at Microsoft? But is he implying that this could come to Xbox?
@Sep- "He was taking a jab at Microsoft? But is he implying that this could come to Xbox?" what if its dat duel troll?
@PS4IN4- GTA, Silent Hill, Metal Gear, Tomb Raider, Final Fantasy... some of those franchises originated on platforms other than PlayStation, but they all were at one time exclusive to the PlayStation platform before coming to Xbox.Now if you were to ask when was the last time that a Sony owned intellectual property made it's way to Xbox the answer I'm sure would be never. So Rime coming over is rather unlikely. OT: I find myself gravitating more towards unique games like this as of late, and I can't wait for this and Wild. I just want release dates.
Outlast and others
I know that a bunch of pixeljunk games made it to windows.
@ xHeavYx You seem to ignore the difference between style of exclusives between Microsoft and Sony. Name 1 game published by Sony Computer Entertainment, just 1, that then appeared in an Xbox console. Good luck, you won't find any. Meanwhile, Microsoft Game Studios published games seem to easily transition to Playstation like: Mass Effect (like you mentioned) Minecraft Dust an Elysian Tale Fez etc...
He's implying that it's POSSIBLE. But we all know it's not likely.
People in the industry thinks it's indie. But it's a full retail game that is 100% owned by Sony...
fair enough... i dont follow this game..(looks great! but wasnt coming to my platform" but why answer the question with "as far as we know"? kinda raises more questions then i had before they "denied" it... lol... never thought it was coming to xbox/pc but now i wonder
It could be because Tequila Works doesn't control what happens with the game. It may be that Sony now owns it and they choose where it goes. If this is the case then Sony won't put it on anything else if it was always meant to be a PS4 exclusive. Sony aren't in a position where they have to put a game on anything besides their platform, because PS4 is going to sell more copies than pretty much any other platform.
Sarcasm. The IP is owned by Sony.
I don't know about it becoming a full retail release, although I think it's been said that Sony are considering it. As for "indie" status, part of being indie is about how you fund the game, if a major publisher puts up the cash to develop and publish the game then it's no longer an indie, this applies to Rime, WiLD, The Tomorrow Children and a few others (possibly No Man's Sky). I think the reason there hasn't been much in the way of details about these games is because they've gone into a bigger level of production, with more hands help from SCE, so that means greater developer support from 1st party studios. We'll see what happens, but Rime is definitely one of my most anticipated games for PS4.
do they actually own it? cant find anything on that.. just been wondering (hopefully i might add lol) if this is hinting at a possible timed release its being published by sony, that i can see... but rise of the tomb raider is as well edit... well.. way to kill my hopes of playing this game lol
It's first party. Sony owns the IP. They confirmed this at Gamescon 2014 last year when they showed off the game.
Well Sony doesn't publish titles they don't own anymore ie PS1 days with Crash and Spyro. After that gen, they only publish IPs they own. As to why even one of the best teams Insomniac couldn't even get a Sony deal when they didn't give them the IP with Sunset. Sony is not paying to publish a game for a period and time. They are seeking to own it, they still have a reputation uphold on publishing content they own to sell PS systems. Rime is very, very likely owned by Sony, they again don't publish content they don't own, no matter how much they are funding or helping out etc. Sony is literally paying for SFIV on PS4 and it was still published under Capcom vs MS publishing Dead Rising 3. I assure you SFV is published by Capcom on both platforms it will release on. Sony is not known for something like that and I don't think they want to start being known for that.
Sony owns the game. It even says it on the Sony Computer Entertainment wikipedia page. Go to the SCE wikipedia page and scroll down and you can see all the IP's Sony owns https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...
Cool.. Don't follow their business practises that closely, just used the tomb raider deal as a reference as its published by them but will go multiplat later on.. Either way.. Was hopeful I'd get this game on PC or Xbox and now I'm disappointed lol
@sevir I like your style.
Me too.. Its refreshing when people can answer a simple question without assuming I have some agenda.. Why I gave him a helpful bub up and hit agree
It looks like indie game.
Guess Zelda Windwaker does too then lol
That is because it looks like one of those typical indie games that pretends to be something, but looks boring as hell. After seeing it the third time, I still don't know what kind of game it is.
Comprehension is something you must lack then.
Sure... you cannot noscope 360 enemies and it's without any explosion. This game may be not your type anyway, so just don't mind it. :)
Good to hear. Can't wait to hear more details in Tokyo and Paris about this game.
Just like Ori isn't coming to a Sony Console, Rine isn't coming to an Xbox Console.
That's Good cause I like Ori.
That's good because I like Rime. :) Oh and Ori is great as well. But I really wonder if my PC could handle it with its integrated GPU.
And you'd like it less if it was also on another system? I...I just don't get the console fanboy mentality.
@JWiLL552 Yes I would it less cause am not of that BS of everyone should Play a good game Am more you want to play buy the console or do without.
Ori isn't a xbox exclusive it's also avalabil on pc
Every time....Every single time I read Xbox "Exclusive"....but also coming to PC Me : http://www.imagesbuddy.com/... It's like they don't know what "Exclusive" means ...at all.
Yeah, Ori is also on PC. So stop being so intelligent.
No, he should be MORE intelligent Because if he was ....he wouldn't make that comment in first place.
But Below is coming to ps4, that's the one I'm looking at...Inside also looks interesting as does Cuphead.
But I played it on pc so who cares?
Tell you the truth don't remember this game at all and by the article + story guess I won't have to . On to other pressing matters .
Thanks for coming into the article to tell us all this wonderful news. Hope to see more of Rime soon, looks very promising.
By "other pressing matters" he means calling Phil Spencer's cellphone and breathing heavily into the receiver.
Castillo are the type of ppl who'll make stupid comment on games like this n go out n shout about how PS4 doesn't have games. Their memories are as good as goldfishes'.
cant wait for the game, hope we hear more about 'Wild'
Wild = French People making it ... Aah Paris, je t´aime...
I Just wanna know when this is coming out. :( Someone mentioned Wild also. That too.
This is on my "most wanted games" list. Looks absolutely gorgeous and unique!
Rime = WE WANT A RELEASE DATE XD
I can not wait or this amd TLG. Most games I play I have to wait for my youngest to be asleep or away. She really enjoys playing with me and this would be perfect for us. We spent 300 hours over 2.5 years playing Ni No Kuni during winters (Minnesota is too cold to go outside most of the time) and we have been waiting for a quality game to play together.Hopefully it is out before winter!
From what I have seen, Rime is a beautiful adventure game.
This and No Mans Sky are perfect for Paris week. Can't wait!
Hopefully some new announcements as well!!
Hahaha, what the heck was going on at 1:19?
Eurogamer is a big joke, of course this game is exclusive.
no xbox version ? good to know...gems like this should remain on sony side
LOL isn't this the developer who went to Microsoft first with RIME and M$ said no? God I'm glad Sony snagged this title. One of my most anticipated
Rime looks promising. I hope it is coming out soon!
glad it's on the most powerful console
All I know is that I have never heard of giant sparrow and it looks like it could be cool as hell. That rabbit never stood a chance.
Slightly OT, but damn MS loves Unreal! I didn't even know Fable or Sea Of Thieves was running on Unreal! Sea Of Thieves looks really, really good too! Didn't know Summer Lessons was also on Unreal 4 either, well it could be 3 as this showcase is just about Unreal in general, I don't think that whole vid was about Unreal 4 as Batman was running on Unreal 3 I believe.
I guess there's no Rime or Reason for it. See what I did there? lol
You notice how Xbox fans always downplay every Playstation exclusive because they don't like it.....if your not aiming down your sight/ reloading your rifle/ calling for a care package......its not a real game to them. Thats really sad.
