Wait!

 

Sony money hatted Rockstar? Now they cant say that they dont pay for 3rd party exclusivity.

 

But im predicting that LA Nore will come to 360 eventually, maybe a year after release with free DLC.


LA Noire is already coming to 360, this is about Agent.

>_<

 

Right, typo.. Stupid typos :P

 

I expect Agent to come to 360 then, a year or two after release with free DLC.

Only thing that makes this rumor less likely though is that it will probably require a breach of contract, which will undoubtedly require the 1-2 year exclusivity window and most likely some monetary compensation, which would probably be the ~$20M Sony funded Rockstar with for LA Noire that ultimately landed them Agent.

I doubt it will be as easy as R* just wanting to tap into the 360 userbase.

Rockstar promised Agent to be exclusive for PS3, so that way the fans wouldnt complain about GTA4 being mulitplatform.

 

Now the two consoles have equal fanbases and its hard to ignore 40 million potential customers, and they know this.

 


They said it just last year. I doubt the fanbases now would do much if Sony is funding it.



                                                                                     

Nah I don't think so Selnor. I think it will stay exclusive, but then again, anything can happen.

Find it interesting that apparently the $20 million that Sony paid Team Bondi for LA Noire is inherently more valuable than the $50 million that MS paid RockStar for the GTA IV expansions exclusivity.

Why does $20 million = exclusive forever and $50 million = exclusive for 1 year only?

 


Wasn't MS's money more of a loan or an advance though? I remember reading that before. So maybe MS got exclusivity until they got that money back or just assumed a year would be enough

Whereas Sony were just giving Team Bondi money to make the game in return for it being exclusive. Could go some way to explaining it

Either way Agent will be at least a timed exclusive



Fumanchu said:

Yeah that's true - though I can only speculate the details of this contract are like many others in which, have many clauses and options to either continue paying for exclusivity based on the investor's projected sales margins or the publisher is free to release it on rival platforms.  I think $20 million for a Rockstar exclusive for life is very generous. 


Well, not only is it New IP vs Assured 10M series, but also this deal was made as long ago as 2002 or even earlier. Time is Money in business so no doubt SONY would use that to increase the value of their investment in an argument. No doubt there's some inflation involved.

This gen has turned changed from "ps3 has no games" to "which ps3 exclusive can we get next". If you really have to ask a question like that, then you should already know which console you need to get.

This my friend is not the case and you know it. It's in a latest 360 mag. So I asked who thinks it's true? No harm done.

And you know that loads of PS3 fans want 360 exclusives to in forums. So dont act like that. There was no need. Your final warning.

Only reason PS3 fans started saying "we want this and that 360 exclusive"....is because 360 fans have been doing it this entire gen so far! You want to know why "PS3 has no games" started? It's because 360 kept getting PS3 exclusives. 

This may very well be something for a 360 mag, but don't act like what he said isn't true. Everytime the mere thought of a PS3 exclusive comes up..."you cant ignore (insert amount) 360 userbase, you're passing on free $$$". PS3 fans wanting 360 exclusives is only something I like to call retalitorial irony. Check any forum and you won't see any PS3 fans asking for Gears of War back in 2007...but when Capcom made DMC4 exclusive, the only games targeted were Dead Rising and Lost Planet. When Assassin's Creed went multiplat, PS3 fans asked for Splinter Cell. Etc. Now it's become customary for PS3 exclusives to go multiplatform, so now it's only a matter of: where's the equal treatment, developers?

Sad part is, 360 owners do it for every game that isn't 100% clearly tied to SONY. Just look at Demon's Souls after it launched. Half the staff behind development was from SCEJ yet there were still a load of 360 fans asking if it would come to 360...


Proof?? As far as I know From Software developed Demons Souls internally.



 How our favorite systems are just like humans and sometimes have issues finding their special someone...

Xbox 360 wants to KinectPS3 wants to Move!  Why are both systems having such relationship problems?  The reason is they both become so infactuated with desire while watching the Wii as it waggles on by. They simply want what they can't have.

Furthermore, Sony would never took the risk to anounce themselves a title as an exclusive during their own conference last year if there wasn't a true deal going on


I believe they announced FF XIV as exclusive last year, and that may well come to the 360.

It wouldn't surprise me if Agent came to the 360, simply for the fact that Rockstar have left nothing exclusive to the HD consoles this gen. Due to the complicated nature of the agreement Sony may have more rights to the game then a simple timed exclusive agreement so it could end up like another MGS4 scenario. But I'm inclined to believe it will come to the 360.

He worded that VERY carefully

"PS3 will be the ONLY console that will be able to play FF14 in 2010"

Implying timed exclusivity & by saying console he didn't have to take PC's name anywhere

So basically FF14 will come out in December for the PS3 and January for the 360?

I dont think I said anything wrong, i just stated an opinion about things have changed over the last couple of years concerning the ps3 and its library of games. And you can keep your "Warning" because i didn't mean any ill wll in my comment .

 

But after reading my earlier comment it does seem kind of fanboyish so i will give you that

People acting like PS3 "exclusives" never made their way on the Xbox 360...

Hi @ Tekken
Hi @ Final Fantasy XIII
Hi @ Assassin's Creed
Hi @ GTA IV
Hi @ Devil May Cry IV
Hi @ LA Noire

Look at the sales of Rockstar / Take Two games on 360... 800k for RDR in one week, outselling the PS3 version by more than 50%. GTA IV on 360 outselling the PS3 version by a decent margin as well.

3rd party exclusives doesn't make sense for any publisher with a userbase of 40 million on the rival platform. (excluding the Wii, it couldn't handle this game anyway)

Ohhh ok so you agree that Gears of war, Mass effect and All 3rd party 360 exclusives games should be on PS3 too right? they can't ignore 35m install base right?


If those games would come out for ps3... than Heavy Rain, Ratchet & Clank, Resistance would some day come out on 360 too since there not made by a first party developer also right??

 

Anyways.....As I said before 3rd party games are becoming extinct and this game will most likely be multi also


Heavy rain can if Quantic dreams wants it to but Resistance and Ratchet? you clearly dont know much about gaming do you? since pretty much every1 know Resistance and Ratchet is owned by SONY......you want Insomniac to get sued?

Gears, Mass effect and all valve games on the other hand is OWNED by their respective companies(Epic,EA,Valve) MS don't own those games you want proof here it is...

EA owns Mass Effect ... so, what now?
