          exclusives are important to a console's identity

          • 3 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            Exclusives that create competition where companies are putting their best games out on their consoles is both good and bad. It's good when it makes a "console seller" that is worth buying, but it's bad in that you have to pay more money to use the console of that console-seller. But the latter isn't that big of a deal when you are an adult with a job. Paying $500 on a hobby you enjoy that will last years when people will spend that much on alchohol in a week isn't that bad if you make grownup money.

            Exclusives are an outdated concept from an era where all consoles had massively different hardware and porting a game meant essentially remaking it. Modern consoles are made of practically off-the-shelf hardware with minor customizations, modern game engines let you directly export to any platform with the click of a button, and the only two reasons for exclusives to exist are that the the game is made by a first party studio, or that it's made by a third party studio that's been paid to not release the game on other platforms.

          He just seems out of touch even now. The "cloud" is just a way for companies/organizations to itemization their infrastructure costs without having to either build their own infrastructure or co-locate in someone else's. It's absolutely useful to a small team that doesn't want to have worry about that physical stuff or large teams that need to rapidly scale out and down. But the thing is I have all the computation and infrastructure I need to play a game at my house. And everyone who already has power and internet already has the needed infrastructure, as well. You don't need redundant circuits and geoloadbalanced instances to play a game in your own house.

              See, this is an AI. It can't disassociate that to run enterprise infrastructure you need a data center, redundant internet, redundant power, redundant air and heating, disaster recovery and continuity. That is what cloud is about--taking that away and let people focus on their business. And you don't need any of that for playing a game, which is what Stadia literally proved and what Phil was talking about.;Maybe reply will train this AI to be a little more smart.

        All current cloud gaming on consoles, even playstation, runs through Microsoft azure. Sony can't afford their own, MS owns the network that gaming will inevitably be run from.

      Gamepass is already making MS a pretty big profit, which took other services a decade or more.
      Look at rising hardware costs. What if MS can give you next gen for free with just the gamepass sub, whilst sony has to ask maybe 700,- for new hardware and 80 bucks for a game.
      Where do you think 90% of the consumers will go?
      People on gaming forums are less then 10% of the total gaming market, our consensus doesnt mean shit. Do you think people care for latency, or "owning vidya"

        Nintendo relies on its exclusives which is a blessing and a curse. As long as Nintendo has great exclusive IPs, no amount of technology on Microsoft's side will substitute for it - not to mention Nintendo has good technology on its own. But Nintendo happens to be in a high period right now with their flagship franchises selling quite well. The flipside is that if their is a draught of good Nintendo games for any extended period of time, or if they make another Wii U blunder, the company takes a huge hit. Essentially Nintendo is rolling the dice every generation. If Microsoft manages to corner the rest of the non-exclusive market the risk Nintendo takes is even higher.

Sony IS dying, but because of totally unforced errors and getting their ass whopped in the consumer electronics sector, not competition from microsoft.

              They've owned it since literally last year. And while it's obviously still a profitable brand (for now, Microsoft is poison), it's not been culturally relevant or industrially influential for a decade.

            >50m PS5 sales
            >20m Xbox sales
            >60m daily steam users
            If there was 100% overlap, ie every non PS sale was to someone who so desperately wanted to play Sony exclusives that they bought a PS5, that's 160m people that don't want to play them vs 50m that do.

            Except Spider Man 2 got 5m sales so 90% of PS5 owners don't even want to play the exclusives, so at bare minimum 205m gamers who don't want to play Sony exclusives vs 5m who do.

      Opportunity Cost.
      Basically, if your box loses an exclusive to a competing box, then it increases the opportunity cost you incurred when picking your current box.
      If you're presented with two horses to buy, and then it's revealed the one you passed over literally shits gold, you're going to feel pretty bad about your purchase even if you're not literally losing out on anything.
      It's a very normal feeling to have. It's called buyer's remorse.
      The BIGGEST issue here with consoles is that it's not just the $500 you spend on the box. It's every additional cent you sunk into your library because it means that if you want to switch to another platform, you'll have to re-buy any games you want to play again on that new platform (provided you don't want to keep your old box hooked up)

      It's because if they prefer their system, it is better for them if more people buy it, as this leads to more benefits such as being able to join parties with others, more dev attention to that system because of more customers, etc. Also, this success allows them to keep whatever they liked about the system originally (eg the controller layout)
      This means customers of a system get better use of it if it is successful. Therefore, customers have a vested interest in wanting the company to be successful, as their system of choice will then become more useful in turn. As such, if the company makes a bad decision, this reduces the value of their console and forces them to either jump ship to their less preferred option (that has for example a worse controller layout) or play with less games made for it and less people to party with.

      People will say Sony does this as well but MS has been buying up established studios that made games for other manufacturers ever since they got into the business, the first one I can think of is Rare which was a Nintendo mainstay so they've been doing it ever since their first console came out.
      Sony at least has the good manners of buying studios that were mostly creating games for their systems but MS just robbing people of their favorite studio unless they migrate to their ecosystem makes them pretty hard to root for

      I don't want a fricking console industry at all. In the past when pc hardware and software wasn't quite up to snuff to cover the entire gaming industry easily, playstations and nintendo consoles made sense. Hell, two years before I built my first PC in 2016 I played kotor for the first time on xbox. But now? FRICK THAT. Consoles have done nothing for games other than give greedy companies more ways to frick their customers. They NEED to go the way of the dodo.
      And as much as you fricking fanboys hate the hear it, you need to grow up. Imagine having this much loyalty to companies that make gaming worse. Do you think I'd be using steam if it wasn't the best thing of it's kind to use on PC? The moment GoG or something else out does steam (somehow some way), I'll simply use that instead and hope steam catches up. This console shit is unhealthy for both gamers and the industry at large. Game do not have to be made with the express intent on making million dollar companies more millions. They can make millions from simply making good games. Consoles make that almost impossible nowadays.

      Xbox Series consoles went into this gen with GamePass renting, anti-physical game initiative, lack of language, even localization, and official customer support beyond English countries. Xbox has the biggest anti-consumer practice of purposely releasing discs without all the content making digital their quasi-state of playing. Xbox has an unmitigated disaster of UI when it comes to advertising on a $500 product. You are right about one thing, the consumer rejected Xbox Series.

      Officially the Xbox One sold better than Series S and X. The PS5 is over 50 million units and Xbox Series is at 21 million units. You have the Xbox brand so hated by consumers that even with a $350 X and $250 S model in December it was outsold by the 7 year old Nintendo Switch. A console that hasn't had a price drop. Everything about Xbox marketing is bizarre, they don't want to have physical games so retailers remove their presence and it is repeatedly the Xbox retail brand that is downsizing. This is a brand so unfathomably disliked that Xbox sales in Europe are at the point of 9 to 1 outsold on the continent and 3 to 1 in North America.

      And that's with the 7 year old Switch and PS5 without any games as competition. What will happen to Microsoft when Switch 2 and Sony releases games on the PS5? Are we going to blame Don Mattrick again? Ouya and Google Stadia were digital only saviors, were they not? I don't feel bad for Xbox becoming a 3rd party publisher. They killed themselves.

          Actual oldgay here, Everquest was not the first MMO nor was it the first one with a paid sub. The earlier MMOs like Neverwinter Nights(not the one by Bioware) required you to pay BY THE HOUR. $6 an hour in 1991, so with inflation that's about $13.51 today. That's more than FF14's monthly fee every hour.

            Holy shit anon, I didn't know they charged by the hour for that one. I know that early adopters generally don't have a problem blowing money, though, so I don't doubt it was still decently populated.

              NWN was cheaper than the really early ones like Island of Kesmai too which was $12 an hour in 1985 and the graphics looked like Nethack for the first iterations. That's $34.21 per hour today to play a game with ASCII graphics.

              Meridian 59 in 1996 was the first game to swap to a flat monthly fee, so it was over a decade of MMOgays paying by the hour. Imagine how much debt every WoWgay would have if WoW used the hourly sub model.

                Neat news clip about the game.

                sounds like that could've been more of a server costs thing around that time but that pricing is atrocious
                i doubt a big company like sony needed to charge what they did for access

                If you weren't around at the time it might not make sense but EQ was such a massive step forward for the MMO genre it's not even funny(but it also arguably ruined them forever if you preferred the Ultima Online style of games). The contemporary games were mostly 2D so it was probably to recoup dev costs on top of the server costs because they had no idea how many players it would even have initially. But it was the equivalent of if someone were to release a good VR MMO today, it was that much of a step forward graphically.

        Embrace, Extend, Extinguish means Microsoft taking over the platform by flooding it with software and taking eyes away from Sony's own middling AAA slop. Especially as Sony's already failing live service pivot is a billion dollar disaster. MS putting their live service games on PS5 extinguish anything Sony is doing and is forcing Sony to push even their single player games to PC day and date and soon they'll have to port to Xbox too because regulators will threaten to sue and break up Sony if they don't.

        It's an absolute disaster for video games and Snoys need to complain to Sony instead of jerking off over getting Xbox exclusives.

      Wii U, Gamecube, PS3 are the ultimate proof that exclusives don't really matter because you have to wait until the next generation before people start to consider buying your consoles. Then when console owners are locked in due to their digital libraries, they no longer need to consider anyone else because that means losing all their games. It's like convincing someone on steam to buy games on the epic game store despite having good exclusive PC games that matter and yet they barely get anyone.

            I mean Microsoft has completely lost the PC market. Everyone is buying games like Palword or P3R on Steam for full price rather than paying $1 for GP. There's no hope for Microsoft on PC because consumers will gravitate even more towards steam as they keep spending more and more money on it. Microsoft focused too hard on Sony and in the process ruined any chance of GP or the Windows Store being successful on PC. When people would rather spend $70 than give you $1, you know shit is fricked. GP could be free like EGS and people would still spend $70 for Steam achievements and to show off they're playing it to their friends list and to actually own the game.

Right now when devs are optimizing for the Deck, more and more games just work on Linux. Valve could always require companies to make sure Linux versions work and the devs would have to comply or else their game might as well not release on PC. Look at how dead every game on EGS is.

                1) Those were not first party

It needs to be easily searchable and in your face. If Steam itself could download and install SteamOS for morons, that would be huge.

                PC is full of console morons that can't even click an .exe right now to use a Dualsense without it feeling like too much work and that refuse to use anything other than the Steam release of retroarch for emulation because Steam handles all their controller drives for them. Your average PC gamer now needs their hand held to even install an OS, the only reason people upgrade Windows is because a little popup happens to remind them and then Microsof takes care of the rest for them. They don't have to search it out or install it themselves by putting it on a USB or CD, all they need to do is hit install on a window that was already opened for them and wait.

      I bought an xbox because it's a dirt cheap entry into modern games, again with dirt cheap games and I don't have a want for a gaming PC anymore, to play shit ports of the exact same games, set up in space imI dont really have now that I own a house and have a family. The PC series I liked are dead. The mods I liked are dead.

      I didn't buy a PS because Sony's exclusives are awful now, you still have to play online, the control pad got worse gen after gen and the xbox has good backward compatability, as well as a library of games that I've never tried before, having always had PlayStation and PC.

      I really like it as a console and wouldn't go back to PS. If I absolutely couldn't get an Xbox again, I'd get a very cheap "gaming" laptop and just play the 2008 games I already play on my wife's old mac from her uni days

      What's worth more? Some console sales now or being able to buy out even more third party publishers and becoming the largest publisher in gaming with GamePass having unbeatable value forever because it has most non Nintendo games on it?

      The smart thing to do IS to pull out of the console market entirely and buy out every third party publisher they can just for the IPs and back catalog. That's how GP succeeds and how Sony never ever catches up. GP with all the games and on every device. Go from third place to a borderline monopoly.

        >buying third parties
        This really botherscme with Xbox. They had the opportunity to invest in good games. They rebooted Forza. They could have made the perfect Simcade, but just made it worse for the 4th time in a row.

        Now they've bought Activision so I can play Call of Duty on the xbox? I already could and already didn't. I could already play Crash. As a consumer there's zero benefit.

          I've become convinced that Phil and his ilk have literally no taste. It's like Steve Jobs used to say, Microsoft just has no taste.
          Fricking Pestered Pedro or any other normie vidya youtuber could have made better investments with Xbox's blank check than Phil did.

          The only way buying Activision truly makes sense is if they now go fully third party. Otherwise they fricked up, people like to think that CoD would move the needle but let's say CoD was a Steam exclusive and then Epic bought out ActiBlizz and only put on EGS. That would not help EGS, it'd just kill CoD over time and that's with EGS being free instead of having a $300-$500 buy in.

          The same thing would happen if CoD was an Xbox exclusive, too many people are entrenched in the Playstation ecosystem. They and their friends(that might even be on PC or Xbox) would crossplay other games instead. That doesn't kill Playstation, it kills CoD. But CoD on every device? Now it's the game that everyone is playing instead. You want your GaaS games on every system now, even Sony realizes that and wants to put them on PC day 1.

          But in general, I agree. It was a dumb purchase for a console owner point of view. It brings nothing new to the table, it only works if Microsoft wants to go full GP and full third party.

                Anon's right though. Look at Halo, Gears, Forza, Fable. Microsoft cannot maintain quality game series because of their insistence on using 18 month term contract workers. This is also the reason why windows is so shitty, and bing, and azure, and why they keep pushing AI. You don't get to a $3 trillion market cap by paying your workers well.

      You're actually fricking insane if you think Steam ports go anywhere near touching their console revenue. Sony porting to PC is a MASSIVE fricking risk, and it's actually mind boggling they ever considered it, since it's the absolute definition of short term profit for long term net loss.

        Yeah, but you're assuming that people who primarily play on PC would be willing and/or able to buy a console in the first place.

        Sony porting their games over to PC after a certain period of exclusivity gives them a chance at reaching a market filled with people who would never bother with a console in the first place. They can effectively get people to buy their consoles and the game at launch, or the interim period of exclusivity, and then afterwards re-release on steam for a bit more profit.
