Wonder how that will go in terms of updates. And it will end up competing with Sony's F2P H1Z1 depending when that comes out

cant wait to see the slide show

#4 Posted by UnbiasedPoster (1105 posts) -

Great, we'll get to play the game without all the bugs, glitches, and cheaters.

I have zero faith in this.

ugh, why did i scroll to the ign comments....all the peasantry

This is good for PC players as well, it means they're going to switch to DX11 and proper multithreading (If they give a damn about the console version)

There's still a ton of fixing needed before this game is done though. It's just a broken mess in its current form

It's not really good on the PC. Apparently Dean has been talking that the PS4 version has forced them to update their tech on the PC and the PC version should be getting better soon because of a result of it. I'm skeptical.

That said the whole DayZ like games are a fad and they don't have much longevity.

I would imagine console players would get bored of it very fast.

#9 Posted by FoxbatAlpha (8641 posts) -

Multiplat will come to Xbox too.

#10 Posted by BldgIrsh (2989 posts) -

Enjoy the buggy mess.

Damn it hermits can't you keep your crappy exclusives on your own failure of a system or systems? Stop muddying our great system with your stench, the PS isn't used to such lack luster games like you find on the PC. Seriously is your shovelware Box that full?:

Well it's not CoD or Mario so of course they'll get bored :P

#13 Edited by lawlessx (47071 posts) -

does this mean they will speed up on the updates? game is still very bare bones

#14 Posted by uninspiredcup (11876 posts) -

Pretty much the end for pc gaming. All it had left was indie games, now PS4 is taking.

Dayz recommended reqs for pc are similar to the PS 4.

Well, competition is always good.

I think Day Z is the most compelling multiplayer game I have ever played, personally. It's got problems, but I think - like it or not - we've got a new genre on our hands.

Sarcasm isn't easy to detect on the net Shielder. Just saying.

The pc community just went Hulk Smash, collectively.

Not that we wanted this junk game. I remember watching my brother in law play this, and hed get glitched by someone that would toss him up in the air, hed die, then start all over again.

I laughed.

Yeah, quit bringing Steams steamy pile over to consoles. Let is fester on pc where it belongs.

Day Z died a couple of years ago, Unturned is better & free, enjoy beta testing our scraps

Survive the nights for me https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEQTAXzZ59U playable Alpha version should be out by the end of the year

H1z1 is looking pretty good aswell.

I am ignoring DayZ until it actually gets somewhere the standalone progress has been way too slow.

Was gonna say the same, the game runs like shit on my PC fuck knows how bad they'll have to make the console version look to make it run as shitty as it does on my PC.

#25 Posted by uninspiredcup (11876 posts) -

Wait, wait, wait wait wait Wait, wait, wait wait wait Wait, wait, wait wait wait Wait, wait, wait wait wait.

Crossplay?

Either this game is being dumbed down to the point it has a cross-hair that takes up 1/4 of the screen with auto-aim, or the game will have people console people running around helplessly with a target on there head.

#26 Posted by Motokid6 (6138 posts) -

Crossplay would be cool.

Ouch? Are you clueless mate? More like: fucking great. Any true hermit would be happy that console gamers get to partake in one of the greatest games of all time. Also - because of their decision to expand to the PS4, they are upping the game's budget and scope. It's a good thing all around.

Wrong. DayZ has made most of its money in the last 6-8 months. Unturned makes no money and it's an ugly crap Minecraft-inspired clone. DayZ's playerbase is much more massive than Unturned and it's not even free.

This whole "exclusive" is a good thing is a joke. More consoles = more funding = more development. But, this is SW's.

Fad my ass. DayZ has been around and popular for years now...do you know what a fad is?

You're evidently just mad that it sits atop Steam's top seller list instead of your favorite games ;)

Wasn't this announced a while ago? hmmm i might be going crazy.

EDIT:

Good news! I'm not going crazy!
"Almost Certain" April 2013, but i guess that's technically not confirmed.

720p 30fps crappy controls who gives a shit?

#34 Posted by Puckhog04 (22689 posts) -

Can't wait to get the final version of the game. ;)

#36 Posted by AcidTango (726 posts) -

Never cared for DayZ

#37 Posted by xhawk27 (7456 posts) -

Space Engineers isn't PC exclusive any longer either.

#38 Posted by jg4xchamp (49484 posts) -

DayZ on a gamepad? no thank you.

#39 Posted by Heil68 (46421 posts) -

Not much of a fan for the PC version, so I doubt I would get any console version.

#40 Posted by Masculus (2877 posts) -

Hopefully they'll finish the game some time in 2035. Seens to me that the development is quickly going nowhere.

#41 Posted by nutcrackr (12805 posts) -

The number of half-finished survival games is too damn high.

#44 Posted by -Unreal- (24548 posts) -

Why do people care if it is on another system? It's still on PC. You can continue enjoying it in all its mediocrity.

#45 Posted by hehe101 (624 posts) -

way to boring

#46 Posted by SkootlesMcGee (13 posts) -

Can't actually picture it translating all that well to a controller but eh, guess we'll see.

That said making it actually somewhat finished first would be nice.

@KHAndAnime: http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2014/04/introducing-steam-gauge-ars-reveals-steams-most-popular-games/

Actually, Day Z is nowhere to be found in both owned and played Steam data, so you can stop lying.

Hey scrub, update your sig! There's 728,188 signatures now.

LOL at playing any form of Day Z with a controller. Sounds like a nightmare.

PS4 is way too behind for this shitty trolling to matter.
