Neat. (posting so I'm able to easily see this thread later)
So Gamescom 2014 starts tomorrow and the media briefings are starting up today.
Xbox is up first at 8AM Eastern (5AM on the left coast) : Twitch
Neat. (posting so I'm able to easily see this thread later)
Quantum Break is looking fun, fairly traditional 3rd person action game with funky powers...but I'm a fan of such story driven content so I'm okay with that.
I was surprised to see the next Tomb Raider as an XB1 exclusive. Something tells me that will change.
Yeah this was rather shocking. Timed exclusive I have to assume.
Its hard to take any exclusivity from M$ seriously these days when theyre all actually timed exclusives. I feel bad for them. Hopefully they wont go full retard in the next generation of consoles so they can gain back some respect. At this point they should just wave the white flag and stop trying to fight sony.
Not feeling Sunset Overdrive.... Maybe my gaming tastes have changed lately but I want to play platformers like Ori more. I am noticing a trend of time manipulation games too, nothing says next gen like PAUSE.
I just see MS as being under a big net to include XB1 and PC so when an exclusive goes from XB1 to PC its like "and?". PC is stronger but i still prefer to game on my console so in the end it doesnt matter. I am a bit surprised they grabbed the next Tomb Raider of all things and not something else. They must have had to up the ante quite a bit considering CD had initial questionable sales on the first TR remake.
Well at least we know this is where the Tomb Raider franchise reboot dies. Abysmal sales inc
Also, ign lol

Its ok, its ok. Aint even mad about tomb raider. We get Bloodborne, and just like NEedless, its god-tier. Tomb Raider? More like Pleb Raider: Rise of the Pleb
This Ori game just screams Rayman legends to me for some reason
I actually quite enjoyed the revamped TR game, I would have never played it but a buddy gifted it to me on steam. I was satisfied by it lol
Pretty shitty that it's exclusive but whatevs, i own an xboner anyway
Is there a schedule? I'm curious about when sony starts
What id love to see is sony buying halo under microsoft feet. Hell i never played a halo game before but the outcry of MS cocksuckers would be so so sweet. Ooooh the nerd rage.
Sony goes on in 3 hours it looks like (I googled the schedule)
Quantum Break looks amazing, tho i hope your powers can be tweaked and altered some but it still looks dam good.
Full event up at
Xbox E3 Media Briefing
Seems like its going to be a battle of the wallets with MS and Sony grabbing as much timed exclusivity content and beta's from each other as possible. I didnt see the Evolve XB1 only beta thing coming, but id be curious to see what else MS does similar.
"This doesn’t mean that we’re walking away from our fans who only play on PlayStation or on PC. Those are great systems, with great partners, and amazing communities. We have Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris coming to those platforms this December, and Tomb Raider: The Definitive Edition is available on PS4."
Does that mean timed exclusive, or is Osiris a different game all together?
Osiris is like...a top down action rpg if I remember correctly.
So no not a timed exclusive which is dumb, its just going to be on XB1. Its good for Xbox but bad for sales unless MS already fronted them a good bit of cash to do this.
SE even said that Tomb Raider undersold their expectations. So M$ must have fronted a ton of cash to give it to the console with lesser sales (Lesser at this point...who knows what will change in a year)
Draegan is a faggoty piece of shit who sold the forum to mmorpg.com just to spite us. Register at the new site.

I've read rumors about SE trying to get MS to allow cross-platform play on FFXIV which I think would help XB1 sales. FFXIV is a year old and with no mention at this years gamescon I'm not sure MS will get on board; perhaps they still think TESO will be good.
xbone TR is dumb as shit, its a good game but its not a game anymore that sells consoles. Microsoft should have made a timed exclusive on GTA5, 2014 on xbox one only and 2015 on PC/PS4. That woulda been impressive.
Everyone is saying the wording on the SE announcements all stress 2015 and exclusive, so the assumption is that it'll get PC/PS4 release in 2016. a few insiders have obliquely confirmed this.
MS already had cross-platform with FFXI for the 360, I have no idea why SE is so fucking retarded to not allow that again. I'm not sure if it's SE, MS, or Sony making that call but they are fucking dumb.
XI on the 360 with 5 fps during combat wasnt that great. Altho I can probably sell my used seekers disc for more than i paid for it
Pretty sure its MS wanting FFXIV to be on their servers, not shared ones. I think it was a symptom of them not having the XB1 released yet and them somehow thinking gamers around the world would hold hands through Kinect and MS DVRs. They bet wrong and as a result not even the 360 can play FFXIV. Now that they are #2 they have made a deal with EA which somewhat overlaps with their cash cow Gold subscription; why not make a deal with SE? If they want the XB1 to be the "best" place to play games, gamers should have access to games.
There is literally no point in releasing an MMO on your console if its console exclusive, yet open to PC/everything else on every other platform it's available on.
Microsoft is stupid if they don't find a way to integrate it into what already exists.
Editted after reading the article lol
I agree, I played it heavily on the PC with friends on the PS3. It was fun and it connected a lot of players due to being cross-platform.
Activision owns Sierra now? Blah. I spent so much damn money on The Sierra Network back in the day. Online shit was expensive pre-internets.

Hollowpoint looks cool.
Day Z to the PS4. That's why the PC version stopped getting love?
I preferred Rime when it was called ICO, but again with The Last Guardian turning into vaporware, I'll take Rime.
And what is QUBE? Antichamber 2? (EDIT: apparently QUBE is QUBE and was available on PC a year before Antichamber).

That Bloodborne trailer looks pretty amazing. I think I read somewhere that there's also supposed to be a lengthy gameplay thing at Gamescom itself.
For some strange reason Wild has me really intrigued.
Not sure how it will play out and some of the animations looked a bit rough, but I am curious to see more of it.
EDIT: It's like the celtic fantasy version of No Man's Sky!
I am so ready for Bloodborne. The game looks like its running so much better compared to whatever we saw a few months ago.
BB looks amazing.
Lots of indies for PS4, but Rime looked good.
FFXIV: Xanthala Kurenai - Excalibur
NNID: Man0warr, FC: 3480-2650-2736
Wild and Alienation both look cool as fuck.
Still amused no one called out Sony on that BS saying all those games in the clips at the start will be available in 6 months.
Note not one mention of Kinect by Microsoft or Vita by Sony. The new bundles were Kinectless and the media molecule papercraft game is now coming for the ps4 as well.
Thats M$ one good move atm. Forget and bury kinect. Ki-what? Nope, dun know bout that.
If you drop the thing from the basic SKU is not to try and sell it by itself, it's because it's mere existence hurts your sales, so the best course of action is indeed pretend it does not exist (which is pretty easy as it's not like there was some big Kinect game that everyone was eager to hear more news about).
In chase you guys missed it in the Sony press brief P.T. is a playable demo right now on the station store... ya I know "What the hell is P.T." ???
Oh nothing much just the playable demo for The New SILENT HILL by Hideo Kojima & Guilleromo Del Toro starring Norman Reedus!!!!!

This game comes out on my birthday. Holy shit
I like Kojima's antics like the next guy and I am glad he is doing something that is not an MGS, but Silent Hill without Keiichiro Toyama nor Akira Yamaoka is a bit strange for me.
Not sure if it was posted but there was 10 minutes of Far Cry 4 footage.

Nice to see the AI is sill retarded. Guy shoots exploding barrel and blows up enemy and they all sit there.
The thing about TR was that it was a multi-platform release. The order is a totally new IP.
i was using it as example of just how xbone sucks. even bungie, who SHOULD have the most loyalty to MS has all these ps exclusives for destiny.
edit: I hadn't heard much uproar about bloodborne but I wasn't paying much attention, so, touche
Ya, kinda silly to compare a Sony owned studio to a third part studio like SE. I'm sure it was a good move for SE in the short term because M$ probably threw loads of money at them. And if they don't take care of their short term they might not have a long term.
Interview with Phil Spencer related to the Tomb Raider exclusivity announcement at Gamescon 2014. The comparison between Uncharted and TR is made and SPencer admits to Xbox having a gap in the action adventure genre which seems to have played a role in securing this deal.
Totally. I'm a big fan of Uncharted and I wish we had an action adventure game of that ilk. We've started some, and we've looked at them. But we don't have one today of that quality. This is an opportunity.Xbox boss Phil Spencer makes case for Tomb Raider exclusivity dealI wouldn't be a good partner to Crystal and Square if I had a game I thought was directly competitive with this in the timeframe, and I didn't.
Every time some asshole at MS (usually Phil Spencer, but Larry Hryb isn't much better) opens his mouth, the likelihood of me ever buying their console declines even further. It's all spin-doctoring their shitty hardware and justifying dick moves like this latest one.
