IGN's weekly PlayStation show discusses what Bethesda and Microsoft's new deal means for PS5, the Spider-Man Remastered upgrade situation, and the many lingering questions we have about Sony's next-gen system.
Hopefully it means no more alarming bugs and glitches.
And even if... U will still buy their games :)
Those bugs are fun i got houses in oblivion now full of armor and weapons and magic arrows and magic armor. If i open the door to one of those houses armor and weapons will pour out the front door it breaks the game and soo good lol.
Oblivion was a hot mess but those glitches were fun sometimes. Other times not so much. Still love oblivion, i didnt leave my room for 2 weeks
Should me a better/newer engine for all bethesda games. Now the question regarding future games so far it's been said already announced games will come to all announced platforms and future games will be looked at on case by case basis Personally speaking I know people are saying Microsoft's can still put the games on other platforms and put it on game pass where people only have to pay $15 a month compared to $70 full price but I think more games will remain exclusive or launch exclusively because it could help Ms promote/grow gamepass faster(but I hope many of the games remain on other platforms too that way Ms can make their money from their services and that $70 price tag)
I think they will be one year exclusives microsoft isnt sony they have let several of their games appear on Nintendo consoles. Hell xbox even offered to put xbox live on Nintendo because their online service has always been bad. Nintendo will be fine i think but sony with them always refusing crossplay and pulling a apple you are only allowed to pay through their store and cant take those credits elsewhere aka fortnight. IF sony buys a exclusive 3rd party game they really give Microsoft no choice but to retaliate.
anubusgold Please check your history Sony has been allowing crosss play the longest out of all three console makers. Why do you think final fantasy XIV online never came to Xbox 360 it was because Microsoft refused to allow cross play. Crossplay only became a big issue when it was Microsoft were ready to do it and Sony saw no benefit in doing so
@neutralgamer1992 Xbox 360 already had FF 11 and it didnt do too well they didnt care i guess.
"Should me a better/newer engine for all bethesda games." But ms has their precious gamepass to worry about. Why would they waste time to build a new engine when they need to rush out a new ES/FO as soon as possible?
Xbox logo at the startup and that's it. It will probably be 63.7 GB update.
Why does everyone acts like Bethesda is the only company that makes games? I get it, Microsoft made a good move but playstation, Nintendo and Microsoft themselves never only relied on Bethesda games... it doesn't change a thing for me, besides wolfenstein I could careless about Bethesda games.
Elder scrolls is one of the biggest Bethesda ip's. Would be sad if it's only on Xbox.
I think Microsoft would allow it to come out on as many platforms as possible like minecraft. Maybe new ips from Bethesda stay on xbox and PC but a long standing series like elder scrolls and fallout wouldn't make much sense.
Bethesda already said no exclsuives on xbox.
The sale is not complete and won't be for a few months. Whatever Bathesda says now won't matter when MS takes over. They're probably not lying but their also not the one who will be in charge. When the purchase goes through MS will be able to do whatever they want with Bathesda.
@Sunny12345 They can say that but who owns who look at how activision has destroyed blizzard all the heads will be forced to quit if they screw with Microsoft too much.
Still doesn't make sense from a business perspective. 110mil ps4 sold, 1st year of ps5 i am guessing 15-20 mil. Ms has to make that 7.5 billion back some how. They can't do that with xbox exclsuives.
Means nothing to me really. The only game they've released (or are going to) that I'm thinking of buying at release is death loop. I've bought wolfenstein on the cheap and I might eventually get doom infinity when it's cheap. Other thank that I'm not interested. Depending on how the hardware sales go, I'm not sure they'll stop being multi platform. Putting their Games on game pass might convince some to buy xbox, but that's not making much money.
I really see MS completely transitioning to a digital game service business within a generation or two Gamespass is a really well implemented and affordable program (I have it on the PC and Android) and I play new Xbox games on there. To me, this seems like a step towards expanding their reach and expertise to accommodate that possible vision.
I can see that, if this series of consoles fail to compete - they might just push xcloud and gamepass onto as many platforms that will allow it. But that's a BIG 'IF'.
Same here. I dont own any of their games actually.
I honestly can’t think of anything that I would care about from Bethesda to follow to exclusiveness. Maybe if Evil Within 3 was but other then that. I could care less for the rest of their games. I take it back Doom was pretty good, not a system seller for me. But I beat both of the new ones already.
It means I will not be buying their games anymore, as I will not help to fund new exclusives for Xbox. And no I will not just get an Xbox, unless those who would say such are willing to GoFundMe one. THIS IS NOT A JOKE, okay maybe it is. I mean the last part was a joke, the first part I am dead ass serious like a heart attack.
That’s why I hope next game like elder scrolls will be exclusive to pc and Xbox to avoid idiots like you
If they game would come to PS5 please explain to an idiot like me how you would have come into contact with me. Someone thats stone cold crazy can't NOT be trusted to call someone else an idiot, that's just abnormal.
You won’t need to buy them, they’ll be on gamepass 😂
I don't do the PC thing, it just seems that MS will be trying to leverage gamers to their system by buying up major third party dev teams. So if people want to play the games either buy their system or use their services. If the games remain third party the sales from PlayStation gamers will help fund other games that will become exclusive only to their ecosystem. I've said this same thing before with The Other World game and devs Obsidian, waiting to see what develops with them going forward when most of their sales seemed to have come from PS4. What I find most amusing is how people say Sony don't need to buy most theird party teams for whatever reason they come with, but they celebrate a similar sale by Microsoft. Sony doesn't need to buy From Software because their games sell well regardless but champion the sale of Bethesda whose games sell well on all platforms. Say PlayStation gamers aren't the only people in the gaming community, that there's also Xbox and PC, but forget some of those same Bethesda games also go to Nintendo consoles. For weeks moaned about Spider-Man being an exclusive character in Marvel Avengers, how he is a character that has been on every platform and it isn't fair that he is now only on PS consoles. Theses same people see nothing wrong with multiple series "potentially" being locked away from conolses that have had their games for generations. Now they have their eyes set on Sega and Ubisoft. Rant over, tantrum levels decreasing. Returning to normal.
For the first few years of this gen Bethesda were on fire; the New Order, the Old Blood, Fallout 4, Doom. For me though they’ve massively fallen off since then.
It means playstation soon won't be getting any bethesda games in their console, real sad day for Sony ponies.
lol I think we'll be ok. Must be nice having a small win after months of being the laughing stock of the internet, eh? I'll let you guys have this brief moment. But after looking at MS's past history, here's a small piece of advice... Don't count your chickens before they hatch :)
They're still self publishing all of their games though.
Hey ign can you go and watch John linnerman of DF claiming every dev he's spoken to has nothing but praise how easy it is to develop for ps5. Nobody has talked about series X I think its something to do with a new development system code Also ign can you show us 1 single game running on xbox one series X please? I've not actually seen any apart from Craig-Gate....
Technically CraigGate was running on PC, so you haven't seen anything running on xsx. What I find absolutely astonishing is that even though we having seen any proper AAA games running on the xsx, blind diehards have still pre-ordered the console in such number that they sold out in less than an hour. Is begs the question... Is that a reflection of the xbox brand? Or a testament to how low the standards are of their community? Of course, sold out pre-orders mean nothing without actual numbers. MS could have easily made the first batch of allocations low so they could say "look, we sold out too, just like sony. See? We're just as popular as sony!"
I read Microsoft have swapped to a different development platform where as Sony hasn't. Developers continue to make a game like they did on ps4 but use to tools to turbocharged it all with ps5 feature set this is why in liner man's interview he said every developer he's spoken to all said the same thing that ps5 is awesome to develop for. We have seen dirt 5 running on series S but that looks like a sharpened ps4 game
This made me TRY and order Series X. Bethesda games being released on both Series X and PS5, will be Game Pass day 1! I own an awful lot of Bethesda games, so it was an easy decision. I was leaning towards PS5, but now I will get one next year. Hell I might have to wait till next year, for either one of the new consoles.
Im a selfish person so i dont care about bethesda games except evil within, so i dont care if all of their games become exclusive. Even evil within becomes MS exclusive i have my PC for that without any problems being free upgrade unlike spiderman in ps4 and control.
I don't see any changes for the Playstation for at least another few years. After that it will depend on Bethesda's decision for the games past Elder Scrolls VI and Starfield. Either way PC is always a option to complement the Playstation platform.
It means we get another release of Skyrim,this time on Xbox sX.
