How likely is MS to match Sony in the first 3 years of this gen for exclusives?

#51billOrileyPosted 4/19/2014 12:29:07 PM
MS rarely have any first party exclusives. They spent their money and resources on getting timed exclusives for a while on the 360 then that game eventually came out to other systems. It's gonna be hard for them to buy out 3rd party support this gen since they are lagging behind in sales. Hell look at their exclusive list from 2010 to 2013 compared to sony.

Also Vita? Seriously? Xbox 360 outsold it 11:1 in the US last month. I haven't checked Vita sales in Japan but i guess they were not 100,000 last month huh


Well let's see then :)

Yep, you're reading that right ps3, ps4 and vita ratios against the Xbox 360 are in the 25:1 or 100:1 range.

You neglected to post a source. I know why you didn't but other folks deserve to know.


Oh but of course, happy to :)

So it is media create, something that gives weekly, yeah weekly, sale results.

Yep, you're reading that right ps3, ps4 and vita ratios against the Xbox 360 are in the 25:1 or 100:1 range.

Meanwhile in the US the PS4 continues to lead the Xbox One.

Sony has 17 First-Party Studios (including 4 smaller studios within a bigger studio) while Microsoft has 18 (not counting a few "non-gaming" entities)


What's insulting though, is that MS has Rare sitting with their thumbs in their butts.

PS3 had 795 (as of 08/13 games, so about 820 now) while Xbox 360 had 1,119 games (as of 03/14)


Many of those Xbox games being indies and arcade titles not exclusive to the 360. Look it up. There's hundreds and hundreds of indie/arcade titles on the Xbox that can be played on PC. PS3 actually had a big number of exclusive titles. So really, your bragging about the Xbox having games that are on your iOS or Droid device.

Sony is going bankrupt:

Okay, I know many of you kids need this drummed into your heads so I'll do my best to make this as clear as possible for you... Going bankrupt DOES NOT MEAN THEY ARE GOING OUT OF BUSINESS. It does NOT mean that the Playstation Brand will die and the consoles will be obsolete and never have any support. I know I'm crushing the dreams of many bots on this board, but that's the TRUTH. It's simple stuff that you learn in middle school or at least, it should be. Bankruptcy does not mean a company is going out of business. End of story.

What he says is the truth. You're actually not the one living in reality. The PS4 has had monster sales (I even have one), but Sony is not as big of a beast as people make it out to be. Neither is Microsoft for the matter.


Well I'm at least glad to know that you aren't like the rest of the shills on this board, but what he's saying is not truth. It's blatant misinformation. He's just using "lolol sony is bankruptedddd" to fulfill his fanboy agenda.

I will take great pleasure in using logic to eliminate every one of your points you tried to just make

*cracks knuckles*
1:Sony may have less overall 1st party studios atm, but they do have heftier 3rd party support, as well as BETTER 1st party devs.

2: Kinect games last gen were almost universally panned by critics and consumers. It was so bad that it went from "fastest selling electronics accessory" to nearly unwanted for the Xbone.

3: Sony is going through restructuring, that much is a given. So what happens when a company restructures itself? It cuts off sections that are too costly or risky to hold onto in order to lower expenses.

4: Ms has also had several of it's high ranking staff fired or quit recently, these things happen all the time.

5: MS also has many of its games on Non-Microsoft devices. a PC is not specifically a MS device, even if Windows is. Also considering that PS Now will likely be a subscription service like Netflix, Sony will still get the money from that. MS gets no money from PC game sales, unless the game on the platform was published directly by them.

6: The link itself stats "former tokyo headquarters" As in they're not using it anymore. If i had two houses, one of which i never used anymore, and had some financial trouble, of course i would sell it.

7: Sony's PC market was a big money sink and hadnt been profitable for YEARS. It's good of them to pull out of there to avoid bleeding more money from the sector. Part of "restructuring" you know?

8: When was the last time SE had a Sony exclusive game? It was Theatrhythm wasn't it? That came out years ago. It makes sense for Sony to sell off its shares of S-E when SE's shares have been slipping downward, over the last year SE stock has fallen 50% to what it is today, and that's not even the lowest point of the past year.

9: *sighs* Ok, beating a dead horse... restructuring comes with layoffs. Considering the article you linked was tied to them leaving the PC market, all the people in the PC section of Sony are no longer Sony employees, but it's likely that whoever bought their PC market will keep a large number of them for themselves.

10: That PCPro article you linked is over 2 years old now, and also from before Kaz Hirai became CEO, so that article is completely irrelevant to what is happening now.

11: The loss stated in the last article you posted is mainly from the flagging TV sector, which is going to be spun off into it's own company, as well as the PC sector which, as I've mentioned, has already been sold off. Also to note is the stock ticker for Sony has risen from 1530 yen to 1923 today, a gain of nearly 400 yen, or almost 25%.

Also to add my own note. That 79% chance of bankruptcy that Xbots and other fanboys like to throw around... Well that's no longer true, or even close. The same site now lists the chance at 46%, a drop of 33% in 4 months. Oh BTW, using the same source as that so-oft reported 79% chance of bankruptcy in 2 years... well right now Nintendo is at 75%

http://www.macroaxis.com/invest/ratio/NTDOY.PK--Probability_Of_Bankruptcy

So right now Sony's game division is probably the LEAST likely to go away. Considering members of MS's board of directors wants to sell off Xbox, and Nintendo has a much higher bankruptcy chance, it seems the PS4 is the best bet for gaming right now, aside from PC.

I hope you enjoy this touch of intelligence today, and consider this post the next time you want to link out-dated or click-bait articles trying to look like you did research.


Xbots defeated.

By the way Hentai, drop the animated porn for a second and consider this...

By your logic, the Xbox 360 was abandoned by Microsoft shortly after Gears of War Judgement. I mean really, what did you have since then?

Actually, the better question is, what did you have other than a slew of indies and arcade titles since 2010? Halo Gears Forza. That's it. Fact.

You say Sony abandoned the PS3? LMFAO, they just released an HD remaster of Final Fantasy X-X2 and are still giving free games away for Plus users.

Dope.
