Street Fighter V

Massive exclusive for Playstation. I didn't think we'd see exclusivity deals like this anymore. Surely the X1 will get some 'Championship Edition' down the line??

I am 99.9% sure this will be a timed exclusive, i.e. not exclusive.

Agreed. Can't see Cashcom missing out the opportunity to release at least a dozen versions on every platform going.

This is awesome

Yeah. Even so, a year exclusive on such a big franchise is surprising. I think most of the high level play is Playstation anyway so it won't really hurt SF aficionados but normal gamers might feel a bit put out.

The rumour swirling now is that the Arcade version is running on modified PS4 hardware. Capcom being against the ropes financially has meant they've shied from going with a custom set up like they did with SF4 and instead partnered with Sony. This might be an exclusive exclusive.

Typical the xbox one finally has a d-pad decent enough to play Street Fighter and this happens.

Apparently, Capcom have said that the ONLY console it will ever be on is the PS4, I'll try and find a source.
Rumor is, Sony funded the production for next gen, but Microsoft did not, and that's why it will never be on XBOX, but this isn't 100% confirmed so anything can still happen.

Source for you.

Personally I think it's ridiculous, console only exclusive games where previous versions have been on other consoles are a bad thing for gamers.

That's alright, we got killer instinct...

The cab rumour looks to be true then.

To my mind, even if Sony handle the manufacture of the arcade cabinets would that be financially lucrative enough for Capcom to keep the inevitable "Super" and "Ultra" versions exclusive to PS4? It's only really central Asia that would see these cabs anyway. How big is the arcade user base?? Would be cool if this PC/PS4 cross-play included the arcade players too...

"Time Crisis: Razing Storm" was a Playstation 3 exclusive (due to the original arcade version being PS3 console-based):

Namco used that system for a few games though didn't they? Tekken 5 and a Soul Caliber? No?? Alright, it secured them one exclusive, but going on what happened with SFIV it seems possible that Super and Ultra could be classed as different games.

Exclusive exclusivity seems hard to believe for such a big game in this day and age.

Spent most of last night playing Killer Instinct on the SNES.
Back to the subject at hand, I reckon we might see a "Super" or "Champion Edition" of SF5 in the coming years if sales of SF5 do well.

heard CE version coming out on the Mega Drive.

Anyone know when this game will be released? I sold my PS4 in October but I'm gonna get another one next year when there's plenty more games out such as Uncharted 4, Street Fighter V, Until Dawn...I've still not had the chance to play The Last of Us yet or Destiny so I'll get them too...Oh and GTA 5, I've played this on PS3 but it will be better on PS4.

It'll be 2016, the gameplay demo was heavily edited, it was pretty much just special moves in engine. USF4 next year on PS4 so I can't see it being any sooner.

Yessss!!

was over streetfighter years ago.

Never played SF since SF2. I have no intention of picking this up, but kudos to the ps4/pc cross play. Quality!

it's not exclusive if its on PC is it?

Why huge news ? Don't see anyone being to fussed about it unlike the outcry from the whiners when MS done the same thing with Tomb raider, Sony doing this has just confirmed buying up multi format games is now acceptable and fair game by both company's.

To be fair Tomb Raider had been announced as multiplatform prior to MS saying it was an exclusive. It isn't an exclusive and if they'd just been a bit clearer about what the deal meant in real terms people wouldn't have been half as annoyed. They've still no come out and talked about the time frame for the exclusivity.

I can see why SquareEnix wouldn't want to launch on PS4 at Christmas next to Uncharted 4 but I'd be surprised if Tomb Raider wasn't out on both platforms by the end of the financial year.

Tomb Raider IS a timed exclusive, SFV is not, thousands of fight game fans across the US and UK who predominantly buy an XBOX are now stranded if they are regular SF buyers, big win for PS4 in my opinion, they're already 2:1 in sales worldwide and this is a huge shift in the race. I'm just glad it's coming to PC so I can purchase a copy.

Exclusivity should be on games where if it were not for the contribution by the platform owner then the game would not see the light of day.
Not in the case of Tomb raider, where it was announced to be multiplatform, then someone received a bung (probably didn't happen like that but who knows) and suddenly it is exclusive.
That sort of thing simply alienates consumers on both sides; if I were an xbox owner then I wouldn't want MS wasting money on timed exclusives, just as I don't want Sony wasting money on items such as timed Destiny DLC.

I also notice today that they've revealed that they are publishing the new Tomb Raider and hundreds of xbox fanboys are claiming that means it's now fully exclusive to X1. Pretty certain Microsoft published Mass Effect and we all know what happened there
I'm honestly not bothered about either game.

I wouldn't be confident that it means anything at all. Just Microsoft muddying the waters again. They should try a bit of transparency.

I still remember the cheat on the Street fighter IV on SNES to play same character and in turbo mode - Down, R, Up, L, Y, B, X, A. It's burned in to my brain.

damn thats a blow to xbone fans, are the street fighter competitions still happening these days?

It's bigger than it's ever been at the minute with EVO etc. High level and tournament play was all Playstation anyway, so to those diehard players it's not going to really matter.

Latest on that news-

A Square Enix representative has now released a statement to GameSpot confirming the news. Microsoft is providing help to develop and market the game.

"Yes, Microsoft will be publishing Rise of the Tomb Raider on Xbox," said the Square Enix representative. "Microsoft has always seen huge potential in Tomb Raider and they will get behind this game with more support across development, marketing and retail than ever before, which we believe will be a step in continuing to build the Tomb Raider franchise as one of the biggest in gaming."

That's the point we're making. They've already confirmed it's a timed exclusive. Crystal Dynamics has confirmed that the game is in development for PS4. It's just more creative language hiding the facts. And when we get down to it who are they lying to? Your average gamer doesn't know anything about dev/publisher ties or timed exclusivity agreements, they're not sitting about reading trades and gaming news sites. Microsoft are blowing smoke up the **** of gamers, people who'll probably end up with both machines anyway. They just keep making themselves look more and more unattractive.
