Tuesday Chat, May 21 - Xbox reveal day


Things are really heating up ahead of tonight's Xbox reveal. EA are confirmed as attending, as are Activision with Call of Duty: Ghosts. Who knows what else Microsoft have to show and will any of these titles be exclusive?

Are Microsoft covering up for the fact that their console isn't as powerful as Sony's by bagging up exclusives?

So many questions. Let's Chat!

I care less about exclusives and more about new IP. Call of Duty, FIFA, etc etc, all these games are just going to be more of the same with timed exclusivity on DLC. I want to see something new. if the only new thing you can roll out is your deal with Peter Moore, I'm not interested.

It would take a lot more than timed exclusivity for games like Call of Duty and Fifa for me to be swayed to next Xbox. I agree with TM, I'd be more interested to see a new IP.

Microsoft aren't stupid. Whilst people on here might not be that bothered about COD or FIFA, they're two of, if not the best selling games. The majority of people will care more about these than any new IP, as sad as that may be, and as a business they have to cater for the majority.

EA would be stupid to give exclusivity rights to MS, timed exclusives work but people will still get them on their preferred console and wait the 2 weeks for the cross patch.

Very very true. and those kind of announcements get all gamers watching, not just the guys that want another xbox. But from my point of view, it's a sad day for the industry when the latest FIFA and Call of Duty take priority over something new and exciting for a new and exciting console. The closest to exclusive IP we'll see tonight, will be Ryse, I would bet money on it!

Don't give a crap about multiplatform dross from EA and Activision, or tired old franchises like Halo, Gears and Forza, it's going to be exclusive new IPs that sell it to me, if they have any worth talking about, or possibly some sequels to franchises that haven't been done to death, someone said Alan Wake 2 on another post, that would be good, if they got a decent team together to resurrect some old Rare IPs that would be nice. Don't think it's going to happen though and I'm prepared for the worst, kinect crap, tired sequels and stupid CoD map packs.

I am with a lot of people FIFA and COD isnt gonna make me buy a console as I know it will be on both consoles. Microsoft PR department needs shooting last few months all we had is negative stories coming out about the console like the always online and blocking used games. Also the last week or so the main little teasers about tonight is for 3rd party games.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 4 years ago
The third party games drag the viewers in though, and then they can show the first party games first, and keep FIFA/COD till further on in the announcement so people don't just turn off straight away. I can see them having a few unique games, but they'll most probably just be kinnect games, or GOW/Halo/Forza.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 4 years ago
@ Gloria - If they followed every 'what games do you want as console release games', they'd have Alan Wake 2 sitting right there, or atleast in production. It seems to top every single one of the lists that people put out.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 4 years ago
TBH if EA turned around and came out with ' FIFA is going to be an xbox exclusive' that would make me buy an xbox over a PS4
DynamiteWhyte's avatar

Agreed there Tootell, only game that lasts an entire year for me.

I've never cared about console power. As long as the next xbox has good games and a better dashboard than the PS4, then I am happy! Oh also as long as they keep a similar controller design. One of the reasons I play my xbox more than PS3 this gen is the controller. Hopefully it won't be boring like the PS4 reveal was. That show had people talking for far too long about each thing.

should see the new halo according to a friend of mine who thinks they are shipping the game with the console in a bundle package
Bindiana's avatar

Tootel thats not gonna happen EA like money so they are never gonna agree to that FIFA 13 was on PS2,PS3, Vita Wii U, Xbox 360, Wii, PC and PSP so cant see them giving up those other 7 platforms just for microsoft.
JoeToots's avatar
JoeToots 4 years ago
if EA could agree a fee with microsoft to have fifa as an exclusive which represented the same value of the profit ea made of the other consoles it could benefit both companys, with fifa being a big game it would benefit microsoft by selling more consoles which will also entice people to try other games which are on the xbox thus for selling more games, and it would save EA money because they would only have to publish the game on one console. but that's just my theory.
DynamiteWhyte's avatar
DynamiteWhyte 4 years ago
But then you'd have people who hate Microsoft, hate the controller and won't purchase a console for the one game that EA would miss out on, and Microsoft wouldn't get in, so it wouldn't be good for either company.
Bindiana's avatar
Bindiana 4 years ago
But it would lose EA money on other franchises as some PC and Playstion owners would boycott there other franchises. Also FIFA 14 has already been announced for PS3

We also have to see something from the new team that microsoft has that is ment to be working on three new games.

You can't make an annual title exclusive you cut 2 thirds of the market out and some people don't buy annual games every year they wait 2-3 years between so it feels properly new, so there goes another portion of purchases. Potential of no second hand games and BAM another chunk of purchases gone. There is no Longevity in exclusives not any more.

New question. With the exclusives, how many of them will be using Surface for additional features?

If you ever have visited hotukdeals.com, all the deals that go up for Morrisons, you have about 100 people visiting their local shop informing people if they have any or not. Then it all turns out the staff have taken them all anyway.

Xbox 360 didn't really have as weight a selection of Exclusive as Sony (Excluding Kinect Games), so unless Microsoft get some deal home with Japanese RPG Devs or something other than Shooter. :wave: Microsoft your next system will be fail in Japan and in the end the world.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
