It’s not a big year from MS. But I will find enough to play. It helps that 27 of these are coming to gamepass. Hopefully next E3 we start seeing the fruits of their acquisitions a bit more.
Yeah, most likely, but they haven't explicitly said it, of course. Any title that started with "Console Launch Exclusive" is timed exclusive that would likely come on other platforms after that period. For instance, we know from leaked documents that Stalker 2 is a three-month timed exclusive for Xbox. After that, it may come on other platforms.Timed ... in what sense? Coming to PS5 later? I don't see anything on the site mentioning anything about it being timed. Do not care in the slightest about GP. I would buy it.
What's even worse on the PS Store is the default advert for each new game is invariably the premium edition at £80 plus.
Maybe we're just stung by exchange rates at the moment, but PS5 prices are off the charts in the UK. It's just too much money.
Halo Infinite has a huge single player campaign, Forza Horizon has a campaign, Red fall has a single player campaign, Starfield has a single player campaign. I know you have a history of being pro PS but at least get your facts right before posting.Welcome to the MS conceptions of videogames. Hope to be wrong but I have the bad feeling most of their exclusives will be like this.
Considering everything that happened this year in the year previous I think they did a pretty good job.
Definitely getting Starfield day 1, I love the Sci-Fi look of the spaceship, Battlefield 2142 gameplay was looking awesome as fuck but I thought they were going to do something much deeper considering they made a big deal about being at the show....day 1
Stalker 2 and Far Cry 6 are also games I'm definitely going to pick up.
The rest......meh lol
Somerville and Replaced is easily the best surprise out of the obvious blockcusters.
After playing Inside I can't wait to play them.
Replaced looks EXACTLY like The Last Night.
I meant Inside like experience. Don't think playdead are the devs for those two.Oh I didn't know that was done by that team.
I'm more interested in it now with that context lol
Halo Infinite has a huge single player campaign, Forza Horizon has a campaign, Red fall has a single player campaign, Starfield has a single player campaign. I know you have a history of being pro PS but at least get your facts right before posting.
A racing game is primarily MP really so having a campaign I think is a huge positive. Halo Infinite is a game of two halves, a massive story driven campaign continuing Chief's story and is definitely not tacked on. Starfield is obviously single player and Red Fall just going by its introduction from Phil is playable alone, presumably with exactly the same content if you played it in cooperation. The fact all these games can be played by yourself or with friends is a positive.Well.....maybe. I see where they are going here.
Let me play devil's advocate here I want you to consider people have the same exact criticism against Electronic Arts so telling me something like Halo in Forza have single-player campaigns is like me telling you Electronic Arts cares about single player did you know Battlefield have single player Need for Speed and I proceeded to tell you a bunch of games that have questionable single-player modes?
It's not to say the thing you're saying is not a single player mode it is to say that the community feels they are forced, cheap, tacked on and not considered the same thing as a genuine focused single player game and more so some sort of multiplayer game with a tacked on single player type thing.
It's not even to say that's what we're talkin about regarding ALL the games that you mentioned cuz I'm pretty fucking positive Starfield is going to be an absolutely amazing single-player experience coming from that team but the rest of the games that you listed are not necessarily from developers that I think people even trust regarding single-player titles any longer and in red Falls situation everything that we're seeing screams it's some Co-op multiplayer loot box type game. So maybe I'm wrong on this and to be honest with you I would love to be wrong because I really do hope redfall is a deep single player only game that is focused on some big RPG mechanics or something like that but I'm simply saying this based on how the perception of such modes can be seen by other gamers based on the publisher or development team.
So i've stated this many times to people funny enough in EA's defense. During 2018 when Activision released a Call Of Duty with no single player, EA puts out a Battlefield with a single player.....as they have for a long time, yet it was EA that was being told "didn't like single player games"
Never mind that shit with Need For Speed, never mind anything done with Battlefield, Battlefront, Mirrors Edge, Star Wars Fallen Order, Titanfall 2 etc. The public perception was simple. EA doesn't like single player games and the games talked about are MULTIPLAYER GAMES with questionable single player modes (keep in mind, they are not that far off as no one is really playing a Battlefield and Need For Speed like they'd play Demon Souls or Bioshock or Dead Space etc)
At the least, see it from that perspective. I think Forza Horizon is a great series, same with Need For Speed, but that shit doesn't need a single player mode. Let it be what it is as solely a racing thing vs "here is da new storyz". It just seems like the main focus on many of those games revealed are as multiplayer experiences with SP tacked on.
A racing game is primarily MP really so having a campaign I think is a huge positive. Halo Infinite is a game of two halves, a massive story driven campaign continuing Chief's story and is definitely not tacked on.

Many games these days are just single player games with no longevity after playing through once or twice. Nothing to keep you coming back, even the best games TLOU2 for instance is now gathering dust and has been for over 6 months. Battlefield is now just MP which is again a step back not forward. Halo Infinite has everything from the start and that's the direction Microsoft is continuing when others are only doing one or the other
UK dollars here.
£659.40 at RRP for 5 years of Game Pass Ultimate (Gold, Game Pass, Game Pass for PC, EA Play and xCloud included)
£699.90 for 10 games at RRP on PS5, plus £249.95 if you want to play online for those 5 years. Total cost £949.85.
Regarding Xbox, I’d pay for Gold anyway for Halo and Gears, so the question becomes do I spend £249.95 just for 5 years of online play and buy the games separately, or pay an extra £400 for the 5 years worth of first and third party games.
Surprised that some were negative about this show. I thought it was terrific, especially considering Covid.
Getting Flight Sim, Forza Horizon 5, Age of Empires 4, Halo Infinite and Psychonauts 2 all in 2021 is just absolute dynamite to me. Flight Sim and FH5 were the games I bought an XSX for so getting one in July with a fighter plane ugrade and the other for the holiday is huge. Halo SP not being shown was a little worrying, but that's the game I'm least interested in and the multiplayer looked good so whatever.
Totally, but I think there's some professional respect in there too. You see the same when Sony smashes it with sales or critical acclaim for GoW or the like.Eh, you honestly think what he posts on twitter is what he really thinks? This is just good guy marketing.
People often only play a game or 2 a year, because..
Do you have data on those numbers? Anecdotal evidence and all that but people I know who play videogames don't buy less than 5 a yearPeople generally don't play dozens of different games a year... they play a few
Attach ratios.Do you have data on those numbers? Anecdotal evidence and all that but people I know who play videogames don't buy less than 5 a year
Switch game to console ratio is 6:1 and think the PS4 ratio was something similar or closer to 4( or 5) :1.Do you have data on those numbers? Anecdotal evidence and all that but people I know who play videogames don't buy less than 5 a year
Last thing we know about crossfireX is that it was pushed to 2021.Switch game to console ratio is 6:1 and think the PS4 ratio was something similar or closer to 4( or 5) :1.
Now onto something else, where is the two korean games that we saw last year; the kart one and crossfireX?
Maybe they are using Xbox Exclusive for first party games, Xbox Console Exclusive for second party?, and yeah launch exclusive pretty straightforward.Guys, I am a little confused about the exclusivity phrases Xbox used in the E3. Does anybody more familiar with this have any insight or information on this?
They used the following terms:
Xbox Console Launch Exclusive seems pretty straightforward; it's timed. But what about the other two? I can't seem to find any difference b/w the two terms.
- Xbox Exclusive (for games like Starfield and Redfall)
- Xbox Console Exclusive (for game like the Avalanche game)
- Xbox Console Launch Exclusive (for games like Stalker 2)
Also, I don't believe that the Avalanche game (an XGS published title) would be anything less than a full, permanent exclusive. But they once used the same term for The Medium (which should have been Xbox Console Launch Exclusive, right?).
Were the two separate terms, Xbox Exclusive and Xbox Console Exclusive, just marketing errors? And there should have been only one? Or are they really different?
I don't know how to contact @mods to see if they want to pin it as a live event. 5 minutes until start.This special showcase, hosted by Gamertag Radio's, Parris Lilly, will feature behind the scenes details and up close and personal conversations with developers to dive deeper into their recent announcements.
