        Maybe down the road it will run on linux but who knows? I know it will be on Origin. For Xbone it will partly be ran on cloud through Origin. Most likely multiplayer.

        Everything is moving to cloud gaming which means you play the title on the cloud. Onlive is on Ouya Gaikai is on sony and i really dont care about Xbone cloud service. Crytek has Gface. Google is coming out with cloud gaming also. You will play games on the cloud.

        Microsoft’s cloud is a cloud compute platform. Severely different from Sony’s Gaikai service, or Onlive. Seeing as Onlive isn’t that popular, I don’t see Gaikai being that much more popular with consumers.

        EA likes money, if they think they can make more money putting it on ps4 than MS gives them to stay exclusive you can bet anything it will come to ps4, it’s only a timed exclusive, which means after X amount of time it can go on any platform. PS4 is more powerful than the x1 so it can definitely run on it.

        Well nothing for the PS3 has come out since launch that made me want to buy one. I am happy with the PC & 360 for the type of games I like to play, and the community. It also depends on the type of games people like as well. For example if you want JRPG PS is the place to go. If you want good family type games or kid games Nintendo.

        I was interested in games like The Last of Us, Infamous, Heavy Rain, and Uncharted.

        They’re still putting out great AAA exclusives, The Last of Us may be the best game of this gen (I’d consider it a tie with Bioshock).

        The last non Kinect/ Forza/Halo/Gears exclusive was the abysmal Crackdown 2.

        That’s pathetic. And I’m pissed off that they aren’t supporting the 360 at ALL.

        lol what? can tell your not a gamer and just a Xbox fan boy, Nintendo is not family or kids @.@ that is in an insult to the games they make. Yeah there is awesome Jrps on the ps3 that because the Xbox failed in japan so Microsoft stop supporting the typical Japanese games. the start of 360 had awesome jrpgs like Tales of Vesperia and blue dragon. That was the start of the decline for xbox when they started throwing away 1st party games for me, letting studios like Mist walker and Bungie go away from the, Not to hard to imagine what happen at Bungie, they demanded more Halo and Bungie refused. I think the rumors that Microsoft were dishing out hung amounts of money after they reveal to get exclusives is a sign that Titan is a timed exclusive.

        Heavy Rain, Journey, Beyond Two Souls, Infamous, Rain, LittleBigPlanet, MLB the Show.
        Not to mention, the entire independent scene is focusing the PS4 as the primary next-gen console.

        Microsoft wants the safe route, the constant sequel. It is why they lost Bungie. All they ever wanted was a new Halo game.

        Bungie didn’t want that, and Microsoft wouldn’t publish.

        Meanwhile at Naughty Dog, they can make any game they want.

        Microsoft is too reliant on established series. Halo has been around a long while, and Gears of War has been milked to mediocrity (similarly as God of War, which is now on indefinite hold).

        They almost never do something NEW.
        That’s all I want.

        Microsoft hasn’t had a new IP since Alan Wake. I loved that game.
        Yet we haven’t seen new, unique games like that in a long while, and it sucks.

        Point is, they’re still supporting the platform.
        Uncharted started on the PS3, and its still incredibly fresh.

        I hate Metal Gear, always have, lets not talk about that haha.

        Games like Demon’s Souls were successful risks, on the platform, and eventually did well enough to have multiplatform sequels like you mentioned.

    from the website “Please note the following games were not made playable to Game Critics judges and therefore disqualified from award consideration: The Division; Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain; The Witcher III; Super Smash Bros. Wii-U. In addition, the judges did not find a sufficient number of nominees to award “Best Fighting Game” and “Best Motion Simulation Game” at E3 2013.”

        i always feel that “exclusive” game is a freaking stupid concept. The only point to have exclusive is to attrack player (from a business point of you). On the player point of you, it’s just a way to divide people, reduce your freedom of choice (because if you want a game badly, youll stick with the console instead of having the choice) So personnally, i see no point in xbox 360 having exclusive game since they are already the king in term of sell and it’s good to know that games are available to more people.

    Apparently those rumors of TitanFall being a timed console exclusive could be true.

    While it may be a long while before it comes to the PS4, it seems like, it it is a success, it will.

    Respawn:
    Regarding the possibility of Titanfall on PS4, he said: “It’s definitely not out of the question, we have a huge appreciation for the fans. Coming out and showing it to everybody, we’re super nervous and wanted to make sure everybody loved it. We love all our fans, whatever console they support. So yeah. We want to make everybody happy, but this is where we’re at right now.”

    I don’t think you understand how that works.

    It isn’t about getting Microsoft’s permission, not like Mass Effect (where they published).
    It’s about when the contract is up.

    TitanFall could be on PS4, it could be on anything they want to. Even Wii U (but who would want to do that haha)

    Anyone can put up a server, PS4 has cloud computing as well.

      PS4 has a game archive. it’s a lot different than the “cloud” that Microsoft and Titanfall will be using.

        Yes, but that wasn’t my point.

        They can do it on any platform, they could even do it on the original xbox if they wanted to.

        Any console is capable of cloud computing.

        If the PS1 had an online connection, yeah it could.

        For the record, I think making it easy and cheap for developers to use, like Microsoft is apparently doing, is a great thing.

    Left 4 Dead was also on PC. Still considered an Xbox exclusive since it never showed up for any other console.
