Destiny's Playstation exclusives are only timed?

searched and I couldn't find anything.

Under the box for the Playstation exclusives it has a asterisk saying "Timed Exclusivity".

Like people have always said this is most likely the same basic deal MS has with CoD.

Wow, thanks for this, really didn't expect to see this content on xbox. Sony are really getting good at wording their exclusivity deals or as the recent Idle Thumbs podcast called it, excluding the other console deals ;)

So Sony basically flat out lied at their press conference if that is the case. I don't understand with all the rage about this (especially on bungie.net) that no one from bungie ever clarified this. Its just as ridiculous as the Diablo 3 expansion being hidden for the past year on Xbox consoles until a month ago.

Good. I loathe exclusive content. I can tolerate the timed stuff sort of, but the permanent stuff needs to remain stuff like the Last of Us Diablo stuff or Bayonett's Nintendo costumes.

At least Microsoft puts "Exclusive DLC available for 1 month" or whatever during their trailers, Sony kept acting like the DLC was exclusive forever during their conferences.

One day we'll finally reach the breaking point like with f2p where they can't call anything exclusive unless it is a complete non-timed one.

Didn't it say something similar under artwork for Watch Dogs content but it still turned out to be full exclusive to PS4?

That's normally how it works. Off topic but, the X1 subreddit is a scary place. I've ventured there before and it's full of so many irrational posters

I don't even get why. There are loads of Xbox fans over here. They are basically hating their brethren.
Because, and I'm not kidding here, they feel persecuted. They think GAF is out to get MS and that it's just of full of Sony fanboys with an agenda, that agenda being the destruction if MS.

I've seen posts of people claiming that the backlash to the DRM fiasco was all orchestrated in order to bring down Xbox. Thr posters on there don't take kindly to any negative Xbox news, and they'll shut down any such discussion (any talk of sales numbers, resolution or anything like that is either deleted or downvited immedietely).

It's a scary place, to say the least

I'll give 50/50 odds that it's a photoshop. /r/xboxone is a place of shills and console warriors, photoshopping in a timed exclusive disclaimer and claiming hypocrisy would be something that they would do. Further proof required.
Glad I'm not the only one noticing this, it's misterxmedia city over there.

That said, I do believe the exclusivity is only timed.

technically it can still come out. could be anywhere between 30 to 90 days imo at which point Sony doesn't care where it goes since it is the initial period that is important to companies.

Seems typical for DLC. I don't recall Sony explicitly stating it was exclusive for all time.

It's a pretty good source of news for X1 owners. Gotta ignore the console warriors, they're everywhere.

Isn't there usually an asterisk next to the items relating to the asterisk in the foot notes?

I see no asterisk after the items listed. I'd have expected like 'Exclusive* super bonus item' or 'get all of this exclusive* content on da PS'.

It was actually confirmed a while back that it is timed exclusive. It was an interview with a Sony guy who said they were getting it for a window of time. I'll see if I can find the article.

Probably. I've never heard of a company using *Timed Exclusivity on an advertisement.

However, I hope it's true because timed exclusivity is bullshit.

Sony was extremely loose over the wording of a bunch of their announcements during the conference.
 
R/xboxone hates gaf so much they changed their whole page to reflect gaf

it was pretty gdlk
You obviously haven't been over there lol, the reason it's such a popular hub for xbox one fans is because GAF shits on xbox no matter the news and is genuinely hostile to anyone who's a supporter. These forums are an abusive place to be if you like the xbox one(either that or you have balls like me and don't gaf about the drama).



Well, this isn't really a surprise to me.

I think the arenas/multiplayer junk will be timed-exclusive but SOME of the skins and a mission will be exclusive.

What's the source on that image? I took a quick look through the store and didn't see anything that matched it.

EDIT: ^ Guess I just didn't look hard enough.

This should be unsurprising, this is Activision we are talking about here. They will want to milk as much money as they can. Timed exclusives give them that ability to get money from the first party, their platforms customer and then everyone else

I think Xbox got bashed because it deserved it last year.

But I don't care if you have an Xbox. I'm glad you like it and I most people seem fine with it here.

Don't worry, I'll vouch for them.
