It looks fun, but I mean more that if it's only available on one platform that increases the strength of that platform. If true then I would be thinking it more likely that most ms exclusives will hit pc at some point, lowering the incentive to get an x1
To a lot of people, a PC releases means nothing. The type of person that has a powerful gaming rig and is also considering an xbox one is not a huge market. They might lose a handful of sales but some guy going into Gamestop will mostly consider it an Xbox exclusive still. Especially since it'd likely be months later.

Its a mistake, but dont be surprised if a PC version pops up out the blue next summer.

At this point, every microsoft "exclusive" that they havent outright bought the IP is suspect.

To Microsoft, it matters little of there is a PC version down the line. Long as its exclusive for at least 6 months, thats good enough.

For the record, I feel the same for any third party Sony exclusive that isnt coming from japan.

The PC is just too lucative a market and the traditional barriers to porting dont really exist anymore.

I don't think I'll ever quite grasp these comments. Why would it be bad for you if this happens eventually?

The only reason for such complaints for me, is if the game itself is effected negatively in some way - poorer scope / scale, compromises, rushed out etc. I don't think any of these would be the case if it were true anyway.
Cause then you can't use it in arguments on the internet anymore. Or at least not quite as effective.
Terrible, I know

It's not an exclusive though, it's an "Xbox One exclusive" which means it probably will end up on the PC at some point.

So, basically "List Warz(tm)"?

Other people shouldn't have to suffer just because you wasted money on an xbone dude :/
What does list wars have to do with not wanting to buy the game Tuesday just to find out I could have got it for cheaper and at 1080/60 on PC if I wait a few months.

Bingo.

Gears 1, Halo CE, and Halo 2 all received PC ports, and if anything, both franchises were strengthened as far as popularity goes. If someone buys the PC port for the first game, and the sequel is then announced as Xbox exclusive, then that person could buy a console just to play more games in the series.

I won't buy it for my Xbox One, but if it comes to PC maybe....Maybe.

I don't see that coming to PC soon, if at all. Not to mention Insomniac don't have a PC history at all.

We can't have it all.

"List Warz" is important, why buy an xbox if all of its exclusives go to PC eventually?

and nobody is suffering. if you really think you'll suffer for not playing a certain game, then just buy the damn console + game

I don't get this. PC and consoles have two different audiences. Who was planning on spending $400 on an Xbox One just to play SO but won't now because the game might come out PC this holiday?

The people who own a high end PC are niche. The people who plan on owning a high end PC and an Xbox One are the niche of the niche.
.

I completely agree with you, I do think they are mostly different audiences as well but I can see MS thinking differently. Same reason I think we'll see a Halo MCC on PC a year or so after an xbox one release as well.

If you bought the console because you were put under the impression that it was an exclusive, I think it's understandable for someone to get pissed off about it.

Although that's more about being withheld information than the port existing in and of itself.

May I ask for a link to your local paper website? That " Xbox one and PC" is seems strange.
It was on Hull Daily Mail (I can't link because GAF is censoring it, possibly because it has the word Daily Mail in the URL?), but some of the ads seem to be through adchoices so it could possibly be based on cookies of what I've browsed for previously. I'm not having any luck getting it to show up again right now. Give it a shot!

I have to agree with Hindle(wat) if they get it out for PC 6+ months after XB1 it could(!) lead to more XB1 sales in the long run.

Playing the game at a better resolution and framerate and at a cheaper price all sound like the right kind of problems to have to me.

Edit: Read Seanspeed's post wrong.

If this is true, what Xbox exclusives aren't on PC? Forza?
Forza 5 has an unreleased PC version they show off at events, but yeah. Forza (Motorsport and horizon), Halo, Gears, possibly Quantum Break, Scalebound, Phantom Dust, Crackdown 3.

And Sunset Overdrive seems unlikely given the devs said they weren't working on a PC version, so this is probably a typo.

Whatever money I was putting toward getting a next-gen console I'm gonna put towards getting another R9 280X. I need a pristine 1080p, GeDoSato, 60 FPS version with every single minutia maxed.

Why do you turn everything I say into a personal feud between me and you? Please, don't respond to anything I post in the future, I've no interest in having a debate with someone so petty and juvenile.

There is literally no xbox news you wont spin into being good haha. I think its bad it shows xbox one hasnt got many excluisve games if they keep coming out on pc.

Windows 10 exclusive.

Gotta sell them Operating Systems
I really wouldn't be surprised. Games for Windows 10 or even an Xbox for Windows 10 service could be a part of Satya's "strengthening gaming experiences on PCs and consoles as well as cross platform monetisation" along with having a singular OS. Who knows with what they are up to these days

LOL.

I do think there is a big chance it will come to the PC though. Didn't Insomniac say that it was crucial for them to own the rights to the IP when they make "exclusive" deals? I think this will be something like Ryse and Dead Rising 3.
I would imagine they'd release it on every viable platform under the sun if they could and thought it would be profitable.

I think it's safe to say it would be on PS4 day one if they didn't have an agreement with Microsoft.

As far as the game itself goes it looks like it has potential but I'll have to try it hands on as the developer doesn't have that good of a track record at this point. If it lived up to the hype it's been getting it could be a good pick up if it drops on PC or when I eventually but an Xbone.

Then why keep it just on the Xbox One in the first place if it isn't convincing anyone to get one?

really ?
So I'm sat on a local newspaper website when I get a full screen ad for Sunset Overdrive. I was about to hit close when I noticed the ad said exclusively on "Xbox One & PC".



Did someone at MS screw up? Surely these ads are pre-approved.
soo , what was that website ?
any link ?

Not too surprising, I expected it to be releasing on Steam/PC eventually for some time now.

9-12 months after release doesn't mean much really. As said, it never harmed Halo or Gears.

So what you're telling me is that you don't want it to come to pc because you're incredibly impatient and self-absorbed to the point you think other people deserve to suffer because you needlessly wasted money on an xbone?

Wow, I looks like I was just being kind by implying you were just an angry console warrior...

It's probably a mistake. Apart from some facebook game, when was the last time Insomniac put anything on PC?

Like, never ever! There has to be a first for everything though! Insomniac at a time openly talked about putting Fuse on Steam.

Who the fuck is suffering if Sunset Overdrive never comes to PC?

Has Insomniac ever released a PC game?
I'm not putting much hope for it to come out on PC, though that would be awesome.

This has to be an error. Sunset Overdrive surely will attract new console owners and putting it on pc will just stop that won't it?
It just stopped me from picking up the bundle, if there is a chance this is coming to PC I see no reason yet again to get an Xbox One (btw I just joined PC master race)

Or if Sony hadn't demanding the IP in exchange for funding the game.

Slow Down Bull.
