Ryse is coming to the PC!

Why would a 4/10 be ported to anything instead of being forgotten? Xbone just been released and already lost two of its launch exclusives ROFL.

That really blows for the X1....but really cool for PC gamers....hell I will see how it looks on the PC.

Why? Do you think ANYONE was looking at buying an X1 with Ryse exclusivity as an important box to check?

No but the X1 losing another exclusive isn't exactly the greatest news for the console......consoles are about exclusives. The Xbox brand has had a hard time holding on to exclusives.

I understand there are people, especially on forums who swear by games staying exclusive to a console for eternity. I am not one of them. It has sold or influenced x1 buyers all it ever would at this point. Business wise it only makes sense for the dev to be able to try and squeeze what ever else they can from it. If consoles are about exclusives, then this will be a weak gen because even Sony said there will be less AAA exclusives due to development cost.

Yeah it's months after just like DR3 but at the same time people will be like, we will just wait for these games to come to other consoles or PC instead of buying the X1. Now the rumblings are back the Halo MCC will come to the PC eventually even after yesterday MS said nope. And that collection will move consoles, unless people can get it on the PC later.

I hope the exclusives don't die because why not just play all these multiplats on the superior PC? And just imagine how boring E3 etc would be without exclusives. I think they are very important.

Kidding aside.....the 2 reasons I wanted a X1 at launch are now going to be available to me on PC.

This is such a kick to the nuts for the X1.

#104 Posted by CyberLips (1824 posts) -

So is it now a multiplat or another "Microsoft exclusive"? lol

#105 Posted by uninspiredcup (12802 posts) -

Hopefully it brings along the micro transactions as well. That way, I can give people money, for nothing.

Very Microsoft-y.

That MCC exclusivity is looking a bit fragile now.

Would save me a nice chunk of money.

The game is so linear that even if you buy this to benchmark, it'll be like benchmarking a room in crysis 3 lol. Who the f*ck benchmarks a room?!?!?!

I take it will have to be run with origin and not Steam :(

I'll get it if it's an acceptable price.

I see that as more of correlation does not equal causation. The cuts at Gamespot don't have much to do with the revenue of game devs and Nintendo's failure to market themselves has been a huge issue for sales of the WiiU.

Traditional gaming is doing great across all platforms, especially on the PC where it's experience growth thanks to a growing number of solid digital distribution options which keeps prices low and accessibility to games high.

Already the PS4 is at 9 million sold and the Xbox One is at 5 million sold, all within one year. Those numbers are much higher than the PS3/360 sales were at this time in their life spans. Game sales on those consoles have been strong too. The first year is never that profitable though as the manufacturers can't realize revenue as they are making back their R&D investment, but with PSN/XBL as well as a lot of 1st party games coming, profits should start much sooner in this generation than any before.

Worldwide gaming revenue in 2013 is somewhere around 93 billion. That's up from 79 billion in 2012. Mobile games currently make up the least amount of that and all are expected to rise except for handheld games which are expected to be replaced with more broad mobile games, something that shouldn't come as a shock to anybody.

The money is there. The consoles are going to be extremely profitable and bring in a lot of revenue each year and the predictions are that 2014 and 2015 see increasing revenue from pretty much all markets.

I think maybe some of your reasoning is too convenient. I'd be interested in seeing revenue figures for MS, Sony, and Nintendo and how much their current gen consoles have helped (or hurt) their bottom line.

I agree they have their importance. But if 90% of a games sales are in the first 30-60 days of release, I get the point of not being exclusive forever. Nobody was buying an X1 for DR3 and Ryse at this point. But if they do buy an X1 instead of say WiiU or PS4, they can still play DR3 and Ryse (lol). As for MCC, that one is owned outright by MS. Ryse was not. So I doubt it will go PC anytime soon.

Any exclusivity on a Microsoft console looks fragile.

Phil Spencer did say he was going to support the PC.

Plus Crytek needs money

#112 Posted by regnaston (289 posts) -

A couple of things

1. The game will be about a year old when it is released... anyone who wanted it for the XB1 has bought it

2. This shows MS is all about the gamer ;) (joking -- not sure of the circumstances of their agreement with Crytek)

Didn't it almost bankrupt Crytek? This is pure damage control on their part. They need to try and make their money back.

You are probably right that the people that wanted to play Ryse already played it....most people will just want to see what it will look like on the PC...it will look awesome.

#116 Posted by GrenadeLauncher (6256 posts) -

Considering Ryse's reputation, I'm wondering if it'll cost Crytek more money to port over than it would bring in.

#117 Edited by regnaston (289 posts) -

I played Ryse and it was a fun button smasher.. not much longevity in it though

According to this links the XB1 has 33 exclusives

and the PS4 has 27

Now a page or so back someone said the two games he got an X1 at launch for are available on PC and I guess he is hurt by it. I wanted to play DR3, Titanfall, Sunset Overdrive, and FH2 this year. So in Febuary I got an X1. But if I had waited I could have played the superior.......Fuck that! I have a mother that is dying in a nursing home and she is dropping pearls of wisdom these last few days. One thing she stresses is don't live with IF. It only fosters regrets.

Well at least until PS5 comes out. Then the PS4 games will be available on PSNow as many PS3 games will be shortly, and Now is going to PCs and non Sony devices if successful.

At least September is almost here and I will be on Destiny with some old army buddies, getting 4 grand in state and fed aid on top of my GI Bill, so I hope to get my PS4 next month as well as a WiiU.

'Buy' may be an optimistic term...

Lol, more and more money in PC gaming (partly thanks to steam)

More and more console games making it over to PC (Dead Rising, metal gear solid rising, Ryse, GTA V, ...)

Yet you are making statements that are the complete opposite of the truth XD

Good for Crytek. They want their game on the PC and being partnered with MS made it an easy transition.

Dead Rising 3 and now Ryse. Is Halo next?

On another note, I'm a bit excited since this is essentially Space Marine set in the ancient era. I enjoyed Space Marine and I'm sure to enjoy this game on my AMD 8350, R9 290 rig.

To play games? I don't know if PS4 games will stay exclusive with PSNow coming. A lot of PS3 games will be on it and no longer exclusive especially when they put Now on TVs, tablets, PCs. I usually play the exclusives that I want to when they come out. By the time they aren't exclusive I'm done with them so what do I care?

witness the fantastic voice acting of the guy who plays marius. marvel at what it might have been like to be a roman general being played with by the roman gods.

you will get the best version of the best looking game in consoles.

max difficulty is the way forward

The fuck? Why would anyone buy this game... and why is Microsoft dropping exclusives.

All this means now is any MS exclusive can suddenly become a multi-plat... so the Xbox One is pointless. Whats to stop this coming out on PS4 if Crytek own the IP and can do whatever the fuck they want with it?

Considering that Ryse is the most graphically intense game on the consoles at the moment... i'd fear for your indiestation.
