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

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

I have zero faith in this.

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.

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?:

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

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.

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.

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 **** knows how bad they'll have to make the console version look to make it run as shitty as it does on my PC.

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.

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 ;)

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

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

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

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.

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