Another Xbox exclusive gone. Good news for PC gamers though.

Switch4One72d ago

Gone? Where did it go? Is it no longer playable on Xbox One? Oh noes!

gangsta_red71d ago

You didn't know? When a game goes to another platform it means you can never play it again on the console it first appeared on.

This is only applies to Xbox though. Games like Neir, Nioh and similar are exempt from this way of thinking.

FilthyWeeb71d ago

@gangsta_red OP meant in the context that it's no longer an exclusive game, not that it's unplayable on its original system. Gone from the list of Xbox exclusives.

Team_Litt71d ago

And how does that take away from the experiences of Xbox One owners?

AlexMuncatchy71d ago

@Team_Litt

No one is implying that it affects their experience in any way shape or form.

@Gangsta_red

Nice deflection. But Playstation simply has far more exclusives, so if one or five go multiplatform, it's not a huge deal.

But because this was a launch xbox one exclusive, plastered across every major publication, AND Insomniac's first game as an exclusive on a system other than Sony, it was a huge deal. So, logically, because the OP platform didn't do it any favors, it now wants to find a larger audience. It's a win for gamers as a whole. But it's no longer an "exclusive", which is exactly what DarkVoyager was saying.

I don't quite understand why/how his opinion could be construed as something negative. It's a damned fact. And yes, we still live in an age where exclusives matter, and content widely available, while great for the larger gaming community, is at the detriment of people who purchased a console just to be in "the club."

So... To put it another way, Xbox One is sort of like that one museum that couldn't get people in their doors, so they drop the price or make it free in order to spur traffic. Some may be irked by the idea that the "everyman" can get in the door, but the community at large enjoy the benefits provided by the change.

@Team_Litt It doesn't detract the value of the system for existing owners, it detracts the value of the system for potential buyers.

As someone who owns pretty much everything, Sunset was one of the few arguments to justify purchasing an Xbox. With its release on PC I now have one less reason to buy a system that I already had very little reason to buy.

Although this saves me money, I think it would be in Microsoft's best interest to secure games that are for now and forever, only available on their system.

FilthyWeeb - I think the sarcasm bypassed you.

Switch4One71d ago

What new/potential Xbox One buyer would base their purchase on a launch title 5 years after it released? That's dumb!

Why should Microsoft care, you still have to buy it from the Windows store, so either way, they still get some of your money.

Please make Sunset Overdrive 2!!!

It was on Xbox since 2014. For the past 4 years this game didn't help Xbox. Porting it to pc won't make an already sinking ship sink more. In fact this might help the game itself in creating larger fanbase. So overall it's good for the game and hey the extra sales might convince Microsoft to make a sequel so who knows..

King_Noctis71d ago

Sinking ship? 40mils userbase and counting and you call that sinking ship? How do you describe the Vita and the Wii U then?

riibhu71d ago (Edited 71d ago )

@kingnoctis
40 mil and counting...and where did you get that because as far as I know Microsoft has been mum about sales for a very long time.
As for how do I call wiiu and vita...well..already sunk?

mark_parch71d ago

@riibhu

Xbox had 57 million active Live subscribers 4 months ago. Whilst they are across multiple devices I think we can safely assume that the xbox is not a sinking ship lol.

Unreal0171d ago

To be fair, that is true.

cha0sknightmare72d ago

It was a pretty good game... could have been better.

Felix_Argyle_Catbro71d ago

Finally. Day 1 for me. Been wanting to play this since it came out.

Axecution71d ago

It was really really good. I just rented it, sadly, but I'll pick it up again on PC
