i was gonna read it but as soon as i saw the link to hip hop gamer i just said meh no thanks
You didn't miss much. He's just guessing as usual...
@ qface64 This article covers a topic that I think you would find very interesting. The argument presented is backed up with some good points. I doubt you would be disappointed. Lastly, your feedback is very important to us to help improve the quality of our articles. God Bless You Master Samo
No, the article is terrible.
I was. Here it is in a nutshell: "Microsoft is doing better in Japan now thanks to all of Square Enix's help. They will not need the ps3 anymore!!! Give us MOAR ps3 games, we WANT THEM!!! XBOX360 FTW!!!!" That is all that the article contains.
http://www.hiphopgamershow.... This article centered around the same idea was N4Ged before. The new one is the exact same thing but elaborated upon more. Doesn't that make this a duplicate? Why make a completely when you could just go back and add updates to the old one?
Okay so let me get this straight. This article is bad because it's fishing for hits. But "Uncharted 2 Multiplayer better than Gears of War 3" Is alright because well.. The only difference I see is one paints an MS title in a negative light and this article paints the 360 in a positive light. Am I wrong here? Please I am just trying to understand what makes this garbage and this article not. http://www.n4g.com/events_e... or how about this one: "3 Good Reasons why Gay Tony will Flop" http://www.n4g.com/events_e... ^^ This is a game that basically has little to no info beyond a title and rough outline of what the story might involve. Please someone explain to me what makes these newsworthy and this one not?
@ GiantEnemyCrab I thank you for your comment and I would like to state that you just brought up a very intersting point that I would love to see answered with some logic if that was actually possible. God Bless You Master Samo
No you are right its all crap, however there are more Sony fans than Microsoft fans. Promoting more crap won't make it better. I do agree with you though if we are going to stop these articles designed to get hits and start flame wars we also have to attack it when it favors Sony. Now onto the article I do not really understand where this article is going. We all know Square has taken a new found interest in Microsoft. We know the possibility of FF13 going multi platform in Japan and Versus13 going multi platform everywhere. Saying you think it is going to happen doesnt warrant an article especially when we know the explanation already. KH3 going 360 exclusive is just a random guess meant to get hits , I think most of us understand its possible but doubt Square would alienate a good portion of its fans especially on such a big game.
No, its as stupid as. Actually, coming from a Sony rep, the Uncharted 2 vs Gears 3 is even more stupid. Not that such excuses this article.
But they always seem to be the biggest "news" stories with hundreds of comments... It should be obvious to anyone when it is flamebait, but seeing something good for their system and bad for the other makes them feel like they are winning. Anyway this will get approved because they have enough accounts at hiphopgamershow to get it approved. And also because you approved it... Hypocritical much?
One comes from someone in the industry, so no matter how stupid it is, is news to some degree. The other, this article, is baseless speculation gleamed from any number of other sources from some who's hardly one step above most of us because he has a website. Qualifies as news only on his website.
this site is full of hate, its 09 people cut it out
this really is twisted because sony profits when square profits that means the money they earn go into sony pocket even if the gtame is on 360. i'm glad none of those games were on ps3 they are all crap titles. it would damage the ps3 rep putting prg's of that caliber on the system. think those would have been the lowest ranked exclusives if they were on the the ps3 think about that
Why do people continue to assume that just because it's HHG means it's automatically bad. I mean look at the top 3 articles on N4G right now, they are opinion pieces but people give them the time of day. When they see the HHG name they assume it's bad. Attack the article but not the site, and give it the time of day
Kingdom Hearts 3 a 360 exclusive? No way! It can be a Multiplatform though. Or... only on PS3.
This makes no sense. You can "test the water" by releasing a game on both systems... releasing games exclusively on a new platform is the opposite of "testing the water". Square skipped the water testing and dove straight in and it was a terrible decision.. nothing against MS, but releasing JRPGs exclusively for MS instead of both consoles is going to cut over half of your profits.
I still think that N4g needs to put in a system to prevent a writer from submitting his own works. That way people can tell who is actually news instead of websites desperate for hits like HHG. Sadly N4g just cares for traffic. HHguesser just pages threw N4G and makes stuff up to cause flame wars. It is people like him that Bring out the worst in Fanboys. A true Gamer Wouldn't approve this lame article.
love your shows, love how you brings news..... BUT DO NOT Talk about squares games for example kingdome hearts 3 for xbox it will never happen also fina fantasy 13 versus?? multplatform NEVER beacise nomura will never do it ..im fan nomura i admits lol so yeah ..you have gone loco means Crazy...
keep on dreaming. after the way the last remnant, star ocean and all the other sold I doubt Square Enix is going through the trouble. I would love to see how badly Kingdom Hearts would bomb on the Xbox. This is just a desperate fanboy article.
WoW Samo got one though after the PS3 fans were failing them.
From what I have read the reason VS and Kingdom Hearts are not going to the 360 is not because Nomura does not have experience with the 360, it is because he does not like the 360. I'm betting the reason is for the same reason you will not see a metal gear game on the 360, they can not fulfill their full vision on an inferior product. For the 360 fanboys that want to argue that the 360 can do what the ps3 can do, name one game that has the scale of the God of War III trailer, looks as good as uncharted 2(videos not screen shots), ratchet and clank, gran trismo and killzone 2. Any person creating a game that sacrifices their vision of what their game could be to make a few extra bucks needs to be shot in the head.
Just ignore the fanboys and trolls. This is a great article.
It's a bad, flame bait article because - like many have said before me - it's based off nothing and makes absolutely no sense whatsoever beyond a very uneducated guess. Kingdom Hearts 3 going 360 exclusive? Um, what are you smoking over there with HHG... must be good because that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Despite the fact that Square has an interest in MS and the 360, when is the last time ANY game went from being a platform exclusive on one machine to a platform exclusive on the other. Go ahead and think of it, I'll wait. Exactly. None. At the MOST, the game goes multiplatform. Square isn't retarded and they aren't going to take a brand that was made entirely successful on PlayStation and give it to the other side. But, they will SHARE it with the other side to reap the benefits of both. Like much of the dribble on HHG, it's a bunch of misguided teenager opinions of nonsense and despite your sites' desperate attempts to try to assign validity to your statements, it's still nonsense and that's why no one takes the site seriously besides ill mannered retarded people who find a black guy who raps horribly about games amusing. Amusing site? Possibly... to some people. Professional? Not in the slightest. Be true to yourselves and just admit that the site is there for entertainment and entertainment alone and stop trying to convince the world to take you serious when you're not. You only make yourself look more foolish trying to convince us when you could actually be doing even better (in terms of traffic and respect) by just having fun and admitting that the sole purpose of the site is to be ghetto and have fun. There's nothing wrong with just having fun.
@ DailyAddict Why would you state that the title is flame bait? It was not directed towards offending Sony fanboys. As for the article, if it is well written, entertaining, and makes good points to support the argument, then you shouldn't be so furious. In fact, taking things so personal and reacting so emotionally brings out a scent that can only mean one thing,.....Fanboyism. As for your statement: "when is the last time ANY game went from being a platform exclusive on one machine to a platform exclusive on the other. Go ahead and think of it, I'll wait.", you don't need to wait because my answer is quite simple;.....Star Ocean 4. My question to you is: would you be upset if Kingdom Hearts 3 became a 360-exclusive? and why? My reason for asking you is that if you own both consoles, you shouldn't care, and if you don't, you should buy the console you are ignoring because you are missing out on great games on the other console that you don't own. Lastly, HipHopGamer is one of the hardest working individuals that you will never have the pleasure of meeting due to your obvious ignorance and immature perception of the world around you. God Bless You Master Samo
To answer you in order: 1) Your article is flamebait because it incites fanboyism by suggesting that games are either going multiplatform, compromising their quality on one system (PS3 version of FFXIII not getting JP voice tracks), or exclusive excluding what could be their established fanbase for a new and untried one. 2) Tale of Vesperia *was* 360 exclusive, now its not. Considering that one of the main goals of making it and SO4 exclusive to the 360 was to open the Japanese market to the console, given that such didn't happen, its only makes sense to put it out on the PS3 to recoup profits. Just as it would make sense to put MGS4 on the 360, if not for the technical issues which cause Kojima to put the game on a single 50GB BR disc. 3) That you're asking why someone else would be upset about KH3 going 360 exclusive proves the inflammatory value of your article. If its a question between the 360 and PS3, then anything KH3 will be multiplatform. Just like FFXIII is PS3 exclusive in Japan, even MS doesn't have enough money to buy exclusivity for a class A title. They can get DLC like with GTA4, but R* had more sense than to turn the whole game exclusive. If anything, based on install base, KH3 will be on the Wii. 4) Yes, BS artist work as hard, if not harder, slinging their wears...
I was going to read the article actually, good thing I caught the source. Based on the source, I think it would be fair to assume the article was terribly written, isn't based on any facts, composed of a bunch of guesses (predictions are too professional for this site)-used so that a controversial/flamebait headline can be made (its the only way they can get hits, as the site doesn't have a fan base and needs n4g to survive), and that overall its just a pile of sh!t. Actually, I think its safe to assume that my assumption is a fact. Ban HHG.
It was well written. I didn't agree with it, but HHG's new writer "MASTER SAMO" writes pretty well. Still don't agree with what he's sellin in it though, but if nothing else, I had fun reading it......fairly entertaining read imo.
@ HDgamer @ Persistantthug I thank you for your positive feedback and kind words. All it takes is one positive comment to obliterate all the negative ones. It's comments like the ones you posted that keep me writing, and I thank you for that. I would like to state that it does not matter to me if gamers agree with me. However, what does matter to me is that you enjoy the article regardless of the content; that is the bottom line, and that is why I tried to make it as entertaining as possible. Unfortunately, many ignorant gamers keep attacking the article due to the content without taking a step back to look at the big picture and appreciate the article for what it really is. God Bless You Both Master Samo
If we don't agree with an article, does it mean we also enjoyed it? You are a hypocrite. And no, some of us cannot simply appreciate a retarded article.
You mean Star Ocean 4, a game that not only is quite lame (yes, I have all machines), but is also planned to be ported to PS3? Not hardly an exclusive. I like how you assume though that just because I disagree that I'm a fanboy. If you browse through my comments history you'll see that I have all machines and play everything. I simply do not agree with your points because they aren't valid and it's far stretched guessing more than anything that doesn't warrant an article.
Now that's a mature comment that I would like to read. As for Star Ocean 4, which was a great game, until they announce a PS3 port, it will remain an Xbox 360 exclusive that is also the answer to your question. In addition, it is your exaggerated reaction that gave me the impression that you are a fanboy. In fact, having all consoles does not eliminate the possibility of someone being fanboyish. Regardless, I'm glad to know that you own all systems. God Bless You Master Samo
