I think you might want to rethink the JRPG comment at this point in the generation.

This is just a trainwreck waiting to happen, I really hope all these rumours are false because its all Sony needs to start being complacent again.

Typical Microsoft though throwing money about to try and save themselves, its what they get for shutting a lot of their internal dev teams.


A die hard Playstation fan posting negative news about (without sources) the upcoming Xbox while saying that the playstation is in a better position just doesn't seem like a shock to me.

Gaah...3 more weeks! This rumor sounds unlikely because how tight the Xbox train runs but we will see soon I guess.

So sony buying studios/games to make PS3/4 exclusives is "good for gamers" whereas Microsoft buying games for Xbox exclusives is "typical money throwing Microsoft". You are not biased I say, not at all.

May be because he changed the article title: "The Next-Gen Xbox Is Getting a Hell of an Exclusive, Sources Say" to what we have now. (skimming article makes me think he also took 1 small part of it and turned into this thread).

Edit: Wow. Now I know why stopped reading Kotaku. Not only they speculate rumors like facts but the author somehow implies that Durango is bad because it will require online connection for playing a multiplayer only game.

I like it when people try to pigeonhole you into certain camps.

I got both 360 and PS3 at launch and for most of this generation I have been pro-Xbox. PS2 was popular and Sony got arrogant, it was only by sheer luck that Blu-ray won the format war and saved the PS3.

PS4 seems to be turning it around with its developer/consumer focus, I have already stated I am open to getting both, either or neither of the consoles depending on how the services and requirements play out.

At this point there are more negative rumours than there are positive for the Xbox, I don't see how I'm a die hard Playstation fan for posting negative news. I go where the games are, at the moment I like Playstation first party games more than I do Xbox.

Three days ago I turned my PS3 on for the first time in over a month, if that's a die hard Playstation fan then somethings gone wrong.

Not that I have to justify myself to you.

Unlikely but a lot of posters on NeoGAF who are actual developers are corroborating the information.

Never said it was "good for gamers", sick of people putting words into my mouth, I HATE exclusive games for any platform it doesn't benefit the gamer one iota.

My point was if all this turns out to be true all Microsoft has to do is throw its money about, they have more than Sony, to save itself just look at the RROD fiasco.

First off you should stop lying. Since when do you have both Xbox and ps3? I remember you saying you will never buy an Xbox so how come now out the blue you have both consoles and to top it off you even claim to be "mostly" pro-Xbox?? We must be living in two different worlds up to this point.

And no you don't need to justify yourself to me. But you should know that the Internet has a way of keeping track of certain things.

Well after all the exclusives the majority of JRPGs where multiplatform. the few that weren't didn't really skew the platform much, at most they balanced it.

You missed the point of course, though.

Why would I keep a console I don't play on?

I got both at launch, PS3 sat collecting dust and Xbox was my main console, then I switched to PS3 and sold my Xbox. Where have I ever said that I'd never get an xbox????

For some reason its not tracking all the way back to 2006 but this is my gamertag, so whos lying?

Even if Microsoft is behind it will simply throw money at the situation and convince publishers to make some of their titles X720 exclusive. There will be a lot of publishers that want to get in on the next generation consoles but don't have the budget to do so - Microsoft could easily solve that problem.

No they weren't...

There's a small comparison. At this point in the generation the PS3 has a lot more exlusive JRPGs than the 360. It's simply mind boggling you're trying to argue otherwise in the face of fact, since 2010 especially pretty much none of the JRPGs released outside of Final Fantasy have released on the 360.

The only 360 JRPGs that are exclusive that I can think of are Blue Dragon, Infinite Undiscovery, Lost Odyssey, MagnaCarta II and The Last Remnant. All early gen titles. Tales of Vesperia was ported to PS3, as was Eternal Sonata and Star Ocean 4.

I've gone through about 500 of the last 1000 posts I made and I can't see anywhere where I said I'd never get an Xbox, you are confusing me with someone else.
