well, as of right now, it's literally impossible for Sony to get a Sega exclsuive due to this parity clause.
until it runs out or is abolished, every game sega makes for PS5 has to come out on xbox as well.
The only hope is that Nintendo starts to sign deals with sega that exclude both PS and...
I'm hopeful the deal expires and this happens.
Deals are usually 3-5 years. We're approaching year 4.
Let's hope there's a future where this deal can be renegged and Yakuza and Persona stop coming to Xbox.
Yeah imagine that, you earn millions of dollars a year and have infinite access to corporate training resources, you couldn't even be bothered to take one Japanese lesson when you're apparently trying to do deals worth hundreds of millions in the region.
It's called respect and it's quite...
Also, I just wished Sony fought harder to keep these games off of Xbox. They were two very important up and coming franchises for PlayStation and their entire 20+ year history was there.
How they let MS walk away with this parity clause, I have no idea...
it is exactly the situation peter moore outlined in the 360 days, they pay 100's of millions upfront to prevent PS exclusivity.
There is no natural home or audience for these games on Xbox, so this is what they have to do.
It sucks seeing two of my favourite franchises devalued into gamepass...
I did a live roast of the show on twitter, my god it was awful.
No japanese games, TSO and FO76, and my GOD Sarah and Phil's Japanese is so awful, they couldn't even say hello or thank you properly. No respect for the market at all.
These are the American tourists who will buy the Jaapanese...
Microsoft signed a 'parity' clause with RGG studio, which states that if RGG studio (or likely Sega entirely?) release a game for PlayStation, they must also release it for Xbox. I'm unsure if this extends beyond Yakuza games, (The documents were about RGG studio/ Yakuza Like a Dragon...
Now we see why Phil's been cozying up to Nintendo all this time. He's been working behind the scenes to get his lackeys to buy up shares.
There's always a devious plan with this fucker. Never trust anything he does.
what's most alarming is that the email lays bare that this evil fat old conman has placed bad faith actors and malicious investors to buy up Nintendo's shares in hopes that one day, maybe even decades down the line, they can devalue Nintendo to the point where they can 'force collaboration'...
A new vanillaware game, Paper Mario the thousand year door, Another code 1 and 2, new SaGa and about a dozen japanese games... this direct was a solid 8/10. they're usually always 9 or 10's but this one had too many mario games and the western slop like prince of persia and the indies held it...
selling consoles is a pretty good reason.
no one wants to see PlayStation games on PC day 1 besides jealous PC port beggars and Xbox owners who want to see PS5 devalued to the same extent as their xbox series.
PC gamers deserve nothing.
if they're sooooo not a big deal, why are we labelled as terrorists if we don't want to use or see them?
Ahahaha the Western gaming industry is such trash. It's so easy to skip Western made games these days, they pretty much all suck.
