The Force is strong in Xbox...you can play Star Wars:Battlefront before anyone else with EA Access
So I guess Sony is their enemy after all. At least there's honesty there, even though they'll play it off. Better than the old "Sony's not even our competition" times. As to the video, not a horrible way to promote EA Access. Could have been much worse, like Sony's "how to let a friend borrow a game" video.
OK so we core gamers know about this but what about the casuals like parents or grandparents who will buy something based off the advertisement star wars can not be advertised by ms, Sony has an exclusive marketing rights so all advertisements will end with ps4 logo there will also be a star wars bundle so I don't think playing early really means much for casuals. to us core gamers who visit gaming sites daily yes it's an good. I kind of understand why Sony didn't want EA access but I kind of would have liked to Atleast get the opp6to decide if I want it or not but I am not loosing any sleep over it I still see star wars selling a lot more on ps4 along with helping ps4 win the month in sales. also can not forget call of duty exclusive marketing also with soNY it's kind of funny how the roles have changed, all last gen we saw ms depend on 3rd parties and did quite well early on and now Sony is doing the same batman exclusive marketing ps4 bundle mgs 5 exclusive marketing ps4 bundle star wars exclusive marketing ps4 bundle likely call of duty exclusive marketing ps4 bundle likely I could also see Sony getting exclusive marketing for fallout 4, since ms won't be getting it. Ms has their exclusive tomb raider releasing the same day so I can not see them advertising against theor own game. but this one hasn't been confirmed so just my guess. maybe fallout 4 will just say neutral and everyone gets the dlc expanions at the same time
Someone is salty lol, I think, ms had a deal with fallout 4 and the games is coming out with fallout 3 thanksto the backwards compatibility.
carloss I said I guess because I didn't know. you guys can't even take someone's comment without calling them fanboys just smh
If by nice you mean desperate and corny and lame then you're right.
Lmao. Enough with the whining. Plzzzz. You are so sensitive, and seem so naive and you keep treating trivial things so personal. Your description of the video fits your comment as well. It's all about fanboy wars with you. Right? Why don't you try freeing up your mind and getting out for a change. Truth is it doesn't really matter what you think about that vid,some of us actually find it funny so deal with it and move on cos this actually has nothing to do with you.
Can't wait...November 19th baby!!! The force is coming back.
wait, just noticed the 19th is the AUS release date as it would be released in the US on the 17th. So 17- 5 day early for EA Access = 12. "cant't wait...November 12th baby!!!" Fixed
Be sure to tell us PlayStation fans if its any good, I'll just be here waiting..........waiting.
The other guys lol Star Wars:Battlefront looks really cool can't wait to beat darth vader !
Battlefront is #1 on my list for games that I've been looking forward to all year. (MGSV falls in a very close second). What I don't understand is why they keep saying that Xbox One players will be the first to play it? When clearly that's not true at all.
If you have EA Access, I get to play it 5 days before release. So I'll be playing it first.
@MCTJim You'll be playing it SECOND actually. PC gamers already played it. And whose to say that PS gamers won't get a beta before release? Marketing goes a long way. And saying "oh it's not the same", explain how. An alpha or beta are the same as actually getting your hands on the game in any shape or form.
Clearly, you know full well they are talking about consoles in this article..So yes, I will be playing it first before it releases to the general public. Edit and if it has a beta to stress the servers and test, I will still be playing it first. I am not bound by single platform ownership.
Is it really good PR to admit you are the evil empire? :S
I dont care what anyone says. I think Major Nelson seems like a great dude, and he can be funny if not a complete bufoon. Though I follow him on Xbox Live, and cant help but wonder if he has an intern or two gaming on his Xbox Live account. The Major racks up some serious GP.
I guess you're forgetting all the deceit and bold faced lies he told around the release of the xbone. Larry is absolutely and unequivocally NOT a great dude.
I care about that a lot. He's just a personality, an employee. Why should I hold a grudge against a man for doing his job? He's probably a perfectly normal person. Seems nice enough to me. But I guess if you curse the ground MS' walks on then I can understand why you might dislike him.
@matstring Spot on dude. Some in here are just so childish and naïve and allow bias and trivial stuff cloud their minds. MN is obviously doing his job and i don't see what the big deal is, he is just doing his job.I think the guy is great too. Well said
Yeah... Lying and misleading your customers is doing his job. This is why I can't take some of you MS fans seriously. @Christ You have no leg to stand on when talking about naivety.
lol. Get over it. I bet you aren't even one of those fans. In fact, 2 seconds of investigation reveal you to be an angry Sony fan.
I'm just replying to you. Maybe you should actually address my points instead of deflect.
Join me and we can defeat our common enemy! Nintendo?? No I love these guys, the other guys.. Ohh! I lol'd
So Sony pay to get a deal with this game and Xbox get to play it first on ea access ... Ms must be having a chuckle about that one.
Sony will have the last laugh when the star wars bundle sells like crazy this holiday.
I'm sure you're happy about that, happy about the bundle selling well while we get to play it before you guys hahahahahahaha Microsoft is having the last laugh dude they already have billions they don't even need to sell one console (unlike other companies)
Everyone knows that EA is pro microsoft and they work hand in hand, it was Sony's mistake for signing a deal with EA in the first place, Sony probably paid a ton of money to get the exclusive deal just so xbox players can get it first what a waste..
To be honest though the deal was more about getting an official bundle. And the console does look nice. I dont think MS would have done a deal for starwars anyway. They already have their own AAA sci fi MP shooter this year. Wouldnt have made any sense. But it makes perfect sense for sony to do so. They dont have a AAA FPS this holiday, so a few advertising deals hurts nobody playing on other platforms, but gives sony a few extra consoles to sell. This deal was more about selling a bundle than anything to do with current PS4 owners. same with black ops 3. Makes even more sense that these deals are happening in a winter where an all new halo will be out in full force.
So you think winning 1 battle is more important than winning the war...hmm...poor choice of words...(joker voice)
Where's the war it's a piece of plastic .... And your so called war is far from over , not everyone wants a Ps4 .... All I said was Ms were having a chuckle because that would have cost Sony a lot of cash for the rites to a starwars game just to get it second . And for all we know it could be rubbish ... It is EA and thay do not have the cleanest record when it comes to game releases
Doesn't ps4 get the beta first?
What if only PC and PS4 gets the beta... like the first one for Battlefield Hardline. That would cancel out all Major Nelson claims of first on XBox One... http://www.ign.com/articles...
Get to play it a week earlier... Or play the better performing version indefinitely. Gee, that's a hard decision. PS owners are used to MS pulling stupid petty timed exclusive deals. A week isn't enough to bat an eye lid.
Better performing version , and you know this how? And I won't buy it anyway as I already have far to many games I have to play and by the time I get around to this I will play it on EA access . You enjoy the game and I I hope it's good , regardless I will know if it first as us Poor Xbox owners get it before the PlayStation .... Maybe we will review it for you.
It's still a demo until you buy the actual game. Besides if you buy it at best buy you get 20% off plus $10 rewardzone certificate. Sounds like a good deal to me.
Yeah, first on Xbox but limited to only 10 hours. The game will have exclusive/timed DLC on PS4 though. Also, EA Access is $30 a year so do you really want to pay for demos? Because that's exactly what this is.
What ever helps you sleep at night. I'll pay $30 a year for week early 10hr trials (not demos), 10% off games and dlc, plus access to a vault of 13+ games and growing. You know a service is great when early access is considered a bonus.
That was great :D
May subscribe for that month. Play it early on XB1 then buy the full game for PS4 win win in my opinion.
Hey at least you are open to play games everywhere. I'm probably getting this on XB1 and PC. It's nice to be able to play it first.
Benefits of owning both consoles to be honest. It is clear I prefer PS4 over my Xbox. But I still like my XB1 and happy to own one.
@ocelot Absolutely nothing wrong with having a preferrence. The only time it's an issue is when people use their preference to act "superior" to other gamers. Its not cool with any platform. I just want to play games.
10% off through EA access and progress transfers over.
Ha, I did that with Dragon Age. I might do it again with this game.
It's just for a limited time anyway, like Xbox players say we can wait 1 month for COD dlc
I'm sure it was all in good fun because they deal with each other all the time but.., still felt unnecessary to poke at. I have EA Access specifically so I can play battlefront early. However, it's nice to have extra games to play. Dragon Age Inquisition is in the vault too. So its not so bad.
Is it still the case you only get limited time on the game throughout that week of early access? I am dying to play it but am happy to wait for the retail release on PS4, I suspect this will be the superior console version and that matters more to me than a few hours of early access.
Its only like 5-6 hours before release than everyone else.Not a big deal.
No, you typically get it a week before and are able to play up to 6 hours if gameplay.
I dont like it, they did the same thing with destiny, when they dont have marketing rights they find some way of rubbing that deal on them. Is he also insinuating that playstion is there enemy? really.
It's called humor.
It's just a joke, relax. It's like the "here's how you share games on ps4". It's all in good fun.
Major Nelson has even been on the Playstation Blogcast when Microsoft stole one of Sony's PR people for their own. They all had a laugh about it. Don't worry there won't be any nukes launched over this.
This video is gonna look silly when EA/DICE/SONY announce a battlefront BETA ps4 exclusive at Paris Games Week.
I honestly wouldn't be surprised lol potentially with the announcement of a console bundle.
I was just thinking the same thing. You are probably right. It is an entirely online game so.... makes sense. They have to beta test it. The only valid rebuttal I could see is 1. You will probably have to preorder it to play the beta. Which is kind of a meh obsticle really. 2. If your not sure you want to buy it and want to try it. 3. EA does want their service to make money. So who knows how they might handle it. But yeah.. you make a valid point.
Not to mention the opt in recently went up on the origin site, only to be quickly removed. Plus it'll be 20 days before launch, and DICE obviously aren't shy about putting a Beta shortly before launch. Look at Battlefield 3.
The PS4 will have the higher resolution so I'll get it on my PS4
And my PC will have a much higher resolution and framerate, so I will be getting it on that.
And the pc version will be bugged like crazy on release just like batman. Ps4 will be the best version.
*Comment about getting a game on PS4 due to higher resolution gets upvoted* *Comment about getting a game on PC due to higher resolution gets downvoted* Come on N4G, your bias is showing
"Come on N4G, your bias is showing" You're only seeing this, now?
Higher resolution, lower framerate, yeah I'll stick to the early xbox one version :)
That was wild , can't wait to play.
Technically the PC people that played the Alpha version played it first
Lol this was funny, early access will save people money if the game turns out to be trash.
Except for those who will have to buy to find out .lol
It's been a long time since I bought a bad game. I got sick of wasting money so I came up with a system and it's never failed me. Ea access helps prevent that even more. I just don't have enough time to play all the vault games so I've only subscribe during months of new ea games I plan to buy or a gaming drought. How the heck is ea making a profit from access?
