Below, Minecraft, Titanfall and PvZ.

Companies go after timed exclusive, because it works. Titanfall on PS4 in spring 2015 won't make a difference for example.

Except it will give PS4 owners the game...

You see, PS4 doesn't need those games but some PS4 owners might want them.

Meanwhile, I'll just get most of them on PC since I'm hardcore like that.


It gives them something to brag about on list-wars for exclusives. That is all.



There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.

A moment of silence would be appreciated.

List wars...you mean the same thing Xbox fanatics were pulling off...thinking the measly amount of exclusives they showed at E3 was all they had to offer? 



Titanfall might with no cloud support which wont be as good as the xbox one version

Everyone does list wars but specificially at E3 Xbone fanatics were doing them, so no one is innocent.

Probably Titanfall and Dead Rising 3, wouldn't hurt if I can get those games eventually.

Titanfall, very likely.

Dead Rising 3 though, not likely.  DR3 is actually being published by MS.  DR 1 was also published by MS and never made it to PS3, while DR 2 was not published by them and made it to PS3.


DR1 did make it to Wii though!

MS publishing doesn't take away Capcom's rights, though in turn for publishing and doing an official bundle MS probaly wanted a few things, like a timed exclusive.

I already said this before, there's always a chance of the game being release (a lot of them were released under a different name).

Dead Rising 1, apparently was released but under a different name.  Ninja Gaiden II and Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 was the example I used.  Ninja Gaiden II was published by MS, then the game was released under a different name for PS3.

Of course, I'm completely guessing.  Mass Effect 1 was released on PS3 w/o name change as far as I'm aware.  Perhaps there was something that allowed them to do that, while other publishers weren't able to.  

I did say it was "not likely", not impossible though.

lol Microsoft put their hands in everyones back pocket this time around. Quantum Break and Titan Fall will be on PC....those are the only ones that really matter that are outside of first party.

just like sony, right?

i just wonder why you never say "lol sony and microsoft put their hands in everyones pocket this time around". ok, i don't really wonder.


OK...lets wager. Lets see how many of how many of Sony or Microsofts "exclusives" go to another console.

well, i don't really care how many of them are real exclusives or not but the thing is, sony pays ubisoft for excluisve content i asscreed, watch_dogs and maybe more games. sony probably paid all the indie devs who were on the ps4 stage so that these games are "first on ps4" and not a similar release on pc (or as example on wii u like oddworld). sony paid activision for exclusive stuff in destiny  and so on..

so please, if you have to say something about manufacturers paying developers for something complain about microsoft and sony because they are both horrible if it comes to this and if sony would have more money they would probably do it much more as they do right now.

"member of loyality free gaming movement" - did you read your last 5000 posts? 



Timed exclusives are good for short terms boosts, but do nothing in the long run as the games appear on competing platforms. Also, the sequel titles are usually day 1 on the competing platform.

The Xbox One is gonna need these short bursts, so it isnt surprising to see. Its also unsurprising when you look at the 1st party strength. They need to compete somehow, so paying off 3rd parties is a good way to compete.

Considering that Titanfall is a technically unimpressive game with more impressive titles being run on the PS4 just fine without the almighty cloud, I think it will be just the same. The cloud does physics calculations for Titanfall? Yes, none of which would be anything needed on a frame-to-frame basis and nowhere near as impressive as the physics necessary to pull off the environments of Battlefield 4 while running at 60fps on the PS4 using only the power that console has under the hood. That's also assuming that dedicated servers would not be made for Titanfall on the PS4, which is all that is necessary to make cloud computations possible. Contrary to popular belief, Microsoft does not have some magic box which makes cloud computing possible that only they possess. Either Sony would have to make dedicated servers for the game or EA could do it. So if the cloud is somehow actually necessary to run the game, which I seriously doubt with all things considered, Sony isn't out of luck as most Microsoft fans would like to believe.



6 months is kinda weak, MS should have locked these up for twoish years.

Though honestly I think in the long run we are only going to see more and more first party exclusives and everything go multiplatform.

The lists have been shrinking every gen

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_video_game_exclusives_(seventh_generation)

This list is missing some games like console exclusive Splinter Cell Conviction, etc.



It's just that simple.
