Tropico 5 gets first PS4 gameplay video; Current gen exclusive to PS4


Tropico 5 is heading to PS4 later this year as a current gen exclusive and you can see the first gameplay footage below.

This is the first time a Tropico game has ever come to a PlayStation platform, bringing its city-building and political sim-like fun along with it. In Tropico 5 you take on the role of the infamous bearded despot El Presidente and rule over the small banana republic of Tropico located in the Caribbean.

All management controls have been designed to be carefully mapped to the DualShock 4 controller, while it'll also come with full 1080p and a solid 30 FPS frame-rate. It'll also be compatible with Remote Play on PlayStation TV and PlayStation Vita.

There will be more information soon, but in the meantime here is a video.

It is not exclusive to PS4 as the game is also on Xbox 360 which is still current gen.

No, 360 is last gen.

Xbox 360 and PS3 are still current gen until games stop getting released on them and MS/Sony stop supporting them, then they will be last gen. Xbox 360 and PS3 are current/last gen and Xbox ONE and PS4 are current/next gen, but all 4 consoles are current gen.

That's not how things work, that's like saying a child is the same generation as his parents because they're both still alive, makes no sense whatsoever.

Also would mean that the PS2 is current gen as it had PES released on it last year.

The differnce between the PS2 and Xbox 360 is that the Xbox 30 (and PS3) are both still being FULLY supported. There are still loads of games coming soon on Xbox 360 including Scream Ride, Ris of the Tomb Raider and even Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate edition, which is pointless if it is last gen as it was already released on Xbox 360 so people can still buy the game on Xbox 360 if they wanted too.

You just don't get it, do you. Generations are defined by their creation date, not whether or not they are supported. You are either really thick (most likely) or just a pathetic troll.

Situation is unique this time, as the PS3 and Xbox 360 have had a longer life and with the digital stores, people have purchased stuff that will likely get void when it loses support, which has never been the case in previous consoles. The PS3 and even more so Xbox 360 will still probably be ticking in full force for at least another 2 years. All previous consoles have migrated to the next gen a lot faster. I regard the current gen as the consoles that are currently in FULL force, and currently that is PS3, Xbox 360, Xbox ONE and PS4. PS4 and Xbox ONE are pretty much next gen consoles in a beta state, while we wait for them to include features and stuff that Xbox 360 and PS3 have had all along. Tropico 5 never got released on PS3 nor did the Crew, Bound By Flame / Moto GP 14 / Motorcycle Cub / Tropico 5 are games that got released on PS4 and xbox 360 but not Xbox ONE. Developers are still regarding Xbox 360 as current gen due to its huge userbase, and slow Xbox ONE sales. More games should now come to xbox ONE as sales have picked up since December, and for starters SOE have left Sony so they can bring their games to Xbox ONE too.

Also previous consoles have not had so many remasters as the PS4 and Xbox ONE, which makes the transition even slower

The 8th generation started when the Wii U was released. The X360 & PS3 are 7 generation consoles, just cos they have a large install base doesn't mean they can be moved up a generation. Another phrase for"Console Generation would be "Console Cycle"

I dunno if it is hilarious reading these posts from Anthony here, or if its just a repeat of the stupid things been said by Anthony for years...
superniceguy's avatar

I am not saying that the Xbox 360 and PS3 have moved up a generation. Definition of current is "a. Belonging to the present time: current events; current leaders. b. Being in progress now: current negotiations." This certainly also defines Xbox 360 and PS3. It does not define the original Xbox and PS2 and older consoles where they are not being fully supported. Xbox 360 and PS3 is the previous / last / older generation, but they are also still CURRENT and FULLY ACTIVE. Mircosoft and Sony have not dropped support on them yet.

Erm sorry to burst your bubble but the ps4,wii-u & xbone are all current gen. And the last gen are ps3,wii & xbox 360.

I do not think it is pc (politically correct, not the master race) to associate only the ps4, xb1 and wii u as current gen, as I am still getting more playtime out of my 360 than my ps4. The 360 is far from dead / past it yet. There are currently 2 generations active. It is also not pc to refer to the ps4 and xb1 as next gen. I think the best solution is to call the ps3, 360 and wii the current old gen, and the ps4, xb1 and wii u as the current new gen or the new gen. When the ps3, 360 and wii start to get shut down then the ps4, xb1 and wii u will be the current gen.
Bindiana's avatar

Politically correct never thought that would come up in this ridiculous argument, but as it has the 7th generation of consoles was Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3. The 8th generation of consoles is PS4, Wii U and Xbox one so to be "politically correct" the Xbox 360 is a last gen console.

Technically the 360 is last gen, but to say that the 360 is not current is so wrong, when it is currently my main console even when got the ps4. Besides console exclusives, there has only been 2 next gen games so far, multi-platform games that have not been on the current old gen:- lords of the fallen and dying light (and still yet to release at retail). I am so tired of these re-releases. I bought tropico 5 for the 360 and I am not buying it again on the ps4, no matter what the enhancements are. Give us sleeping dogs 2, saints row 5, borderlands 3 etc etc then the new gen can finally take off, as the way it is going if the 360 is last gen, then so is the new gen but with prettier graphics. The same was thought of the 360 vs the original xbox at first but at least it got proper new different games, than re-releases / remasters from the previous gen.. I might even call the new gen the lazy gen!

What is so difficult to understand about the concept of generations? Bloody morons.
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 2 years ago
I understand the concept of generations perfectly, I also understand the word "current", which you obviously do not http://www.thefreedictionary.com/current. If you are talking about the current generation as in people, which generation are you referring to? Kids, Parents or Grand-parents generation? It is not specific. I assume it would mean the kids, parents and grand parents and maybe great grandparents. Usually when my parents talk about their generation they say "our generation" or if they are referring to me, they say "my generation" or the kids generation "their generation". Xbox 360 and PS3 are CURRENTLY officially active and supported by Sony and MS, so CURRENT generation = PS3, Xbox 360, PS4, Xbox ONE, Wii U and Wii (especially as it is in the Wii U). Usually the next generation of consoles takes over within a year or maybe even 9 months, but this time it is like 3-5 years. Imagine a pregnancy that lasts 5 years?!!

yeah, if you look everywhere, everyone (bar a few) refer to the 360 and ps3 as last gen and the ps4 and xbone as current gen. Just because YOU still actively use the 360 more doesn't mean the terms revolve around your usage. Thats like saying if you only had a ps2 then the ps2 is 'current gen' in relation to that person - ignoring the fact the PS3 and PS4 are both out there. so yeah, Current Gen = Wii U, PS4 and Xbone, Last Gen = 360, Ps3 and Wii - the term 'Gen' relates to the generation the consoles fall in, we are now in the 8th - older consoles were in the 7th Gen. -------- On topic though - I hope the PS4 version of the game has all th DLC included - I love Tropico but it has too many DLC packs that, imo, are too expensive for what you get.

There is no mention of there being a current generation in that wiki page, and they do not refer to the 8th gen as the current gen. The Xbox ONE and PS4 are the 8th generation and the Xbox 360 and the PS3 are the 7th generation. Why do YOU refer to them as the "current" gen? It makes no sense really. I assume it is because the new generation comes in and takes over, unlike people generations where there are at least 3 generations alive, but in this instance with console generations it has not. The definition of the word current means "Belonging to the present time" and "Being in progress" which the Xbox 360 and PS3 are. They are still getting updated, they are still getting new games coming in, at retail and through their marketplaces. Referring to the PS4 and Xbox ONE as the "current" generation is not appropriate, when MS and Sony are still fully supporting the Xbox 360 and PS3 so the 7th generation is also current. In a unique occasion in history there are 2 current generations. It is not just down to how much I use the Xbox 360, it is MAINLY because of the fact that MS and Sony are still officially supporting their 7th gen console, they are not officially supporting the PS2 and original Xbox, so the PS2 will never be current, even if I would be using the PS2 as the main console. Also Star Trek The Next Generation kept the title all the way through the series, as you would think that there would be a new generation with each series! So calling PS4 and xbox ONE Next Gen should still be OK too. It would have been more accurate to title this topic "8th gen exclusive to PS4 " or "Next gen exclusive to PS4 " or "New gen exclusive to PS4" It seems to be that it is down to perception that the Xbox ONE and PS4 are only the current gen than reality.

Article title is 100% accurate though, sorry Tony. It is very surprising to see multiplatform games still skipping Xbox One at this point, especially in light of the multiple occasions last year where MS were hyping up the improvements made to their dev kits. It paints a picture of a system that is still, in some ways at least, a mess.
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 2 years ago
The article title is not 100% accurate as the wiki page proves me right. If I was saying current generation in regards to people, which generation would that be? the kids, the adults or the elderly generation?
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 2 years ago
The Xbox ONE is not a mess, not any longer, since Dec sales have surpassed the PS4. Future games will more likely be on Xbox ONE now and not be skipped. Even SOE has broken away from Sony so they can bring their games to the Xbox ONE.

You can't be serious? Next gen consoles become current gen when they are released. The LAST generation of consoles where ps3, wii, 360, so they are now LAST gen consoles, no matter what games release on them, who plays them, or whatever. And to make another correction, xbox 1 sales have not surpassed PS4 anywhere. Weekly sales where higher for a few weeks in November/December in the US only. Global sales where still lower than the PS4, and I bet January NPD data will say PS4 sold more in the US again. And SOE were making massive losses so were sold off/booted out, not "Broken away from Sony so theyy can make xbox games" as you casually state as fact. Rant over
PrometheusFan's avatar
PrometheusFan 2 years ago
Yeah, you are definitely taking the piss at this point. Console hardware generations are clearly defined no matter how many mental gymnastics you do. PS4 worldwide sales are set to hit 20 million sold to consumers in the next few weeks while Xbox One worldwide sales have yet to have been confirmed to have crossed 10 million on that score. SOE didn't "break away" from Sony, they were sold by Sony. It had exactly nothing to do with Xbox in any way, shape or form.

On topic, it is odd that they are only bringing it to PS4 and not X1 as they are similar to develop for. I guess they have limited time and resources so PC/360/PS4 is probably the best 3 in terms of coverage that they can make.
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 2 years ago
It is still on topic due to the article title. Until someone can answer my question about current generation in relation to people, then I am serious. No one has answered it because there are at least 3 generations mostly alive. When kids are born parents do not die.It may be the case in the past, as once the next gen has been released then it does take over, but the 7th gen has a lot going for it, and so MS/Sony are still keeping them active and dropping them. This is the first in console history. I did a search for "current generation" and the first video game results in bing and yahoo gave me http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_video_game_consoles_(seventh_generation) and in google it was http://whatculture.com/gaming/10-greatest-video-games-of-the-current-generation.php. Both referring to the 7th generation. This plus the definition of "current" and the wiki page linked to by Turniplord proves that I am right,. Sorry. As for SOE, there is no evidence that there failing but there is evidence they wanted to bring games to the Xbox ONE John Smedley the president, who will also be president in the company daybreak, states "Yes, we want to bring our games to Xbox One in addition to PS4." which was said on twitter (https://twitter.com/j_smedley/status/562352643981332480), and reported here: http://www.entweak.com/gaming/john-smedley-further-clarifies-soe-acquisition-and-it-will-affect-their-gaming-ips/

7th gen tp 2010? 8th gen to 2011? That is false as 8th gen did not get released until 2013, and contradicts beeje13s comment "Next gen consoles become current gen when they are released" This has gone on long enough we will have to agree to disagree, I have put a lot of time in finding out the truth and see if there is any clear official statements that 7th gen is no longer a current generation, and I have come back blank, and the more I search still says that the 7th gen is still current. No where states that the 7th gen or 8th gen is current, it is just down to personal opinion, perception or an unwritten rule, as opposed to facts and reality.

It's a fact, 8 supersedes 7, no announcement needed, you can't understand that you are a complete imbecile.
superniceguy's avatar
superniceguy 2 years ago
8 will supersede 7, but it has not yet. Even yourself have said and enjoyed Wolfenstein and Alien isolation without the need to upgrade. 7th generation is still current. It is the last generation but it is still current. MS only just recently launched a 500GB Xbox 360. When the Xbox 360 launched, MS stopped supporting the original Xbox virtually straight away, but has not been the case with the Xbox ONE, MS are still doing Scream Ride and Rise of the Tomb Raider. That is why no one has been able to answer which generation is a current generation in regards to people.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
