I didn't think MS was going to be able to moneyhat it....apparently I was wrong.
well, depends on how you see it. those 10 million dollars (or however much they paid for this time-exclusive deal) will undoubtedly go to the development of FFXIII series (or partially at least)
so... I, for one, am willing to overlook this and applaud Microsoft's money throwing..
Screw FF...Star Ocean is my favorite RPG...not that I purchased my PS3 for it...but this really is forcing me to save up for a 360 earlier than I wanted to. MS disgusts me...but if it buys out all my favorite games, I have no choice but to give in.
It's a clear case that Microsoft is throwing their money/weight around, and Sony is obviously unwilling to match it. (they didn't when Microsoft gave 50million for DLC), Heck, do you really expect Sony to?
As much as it might suck for fans of the series, just wait for a year max until it comes to PS3
or just buy a 360, if you want to.
Because Sony isn't the big arrogant company everybody thinks they are...it's MS. But, they're the one that gets praised anyway. I'll admit it, I'm a PS fanboy, and I'm pissed. I see a huge down spiral for the PS brand...and MS is holding the knife as well as Sony aiming the gun at their own foot. It's time to move on, 360 and the Wii are the future...PS is pretty much dead to me now.
Remember Microsoft has been doing this FOR YEARS in PC market, so I'm not surprised.
I don't see any downgrade for PS brands, you are just pissed because your game is delayed. Although comments like 360 and Wii are the future is just immature. You are just sounding like a 4 yr old who just lost her lollipop.
Come on, we are all adults here. You lose battles, you win the war, the console war is far from over.
Delayed? They said it might or might not go to the PS3. It's not just one lollipop either, this one has made it hit me. Most of the game the PS brand once held are now either being shared or completely lost to other consoles. People have been saying this from the start. The PS3 is losing all of it's exclusives. This isn't just the PS3 for me...it's not even about the console war...it's the whole PS brand itself.
In my eyes, I honestly think the PS3 is going to be the last PS. I'm all for new IPs...but when all the games I love are going to the 360 or Wii as well, it really makes me think. Oh, I'm 15 by the way, not an adult. ;)
PS3 is losing all of its games?? REALLY??? Top games are still on PS3, RE5, MGS4, GTAIV, FFXIII. PS brand has always been good third party support, and yes, it has been weaken, but is it being a 'down spiral' because of one title? Absolutely not.
In case you are wondering, I've been stating this for years, Exclusivity is a term only cared about for fanboys to gain some kind of pride. Why would I care if my next door neighbour who owns a 360 can also play the game? As long as this game comes out to my system and is good.
15 yr old is considered in my culture as a capable adult. If you feel like acting more like 4 yr old, then go ahead. You are making way too big a deal on one IP that is (and most likely is) a time exclusive. Leave those kind of times for Microsoft fans. It's their night of 'joy', let them have their moments.
