Ones a 3rd party games being kept off another console for 2 years, the other will soon be first party and still release the same time on both.


They will still be bitching about MS owning COD in 2025

I'm not sure there's a relevant argument to be made over that distinction though. An exclusive by definition means its availability will be limited to a platform and not be available elsewhere like Xbox.

Sony has b!tched and moaned to high heaven about CoD possibly going exclusive or being available on Gamepass while still having access....again possible Sony availability of CoD because if I were MSFT I'd remember how Sony has acted in all this and cut them right the fck off from access to CoD. But in business its always a good idea to not let things get personal.

Anyway, the point I wanted to make is. Sony continues to secure exclusive IP from third-parties. But when MSFT tries to do it there are excuses like........But CoD is too big, we needs the precious on our platform. Its total hypocrisy and it confuses me how anyone can support Sony's double standard. I mean, I do the majority of my gaming on PS5, most of my gaming spending is done on PSN. So its fair to say at this point I'm more of a fan of Sony's platform over MSFT's. Or at the very least I'm more financially supportive of Sony's platform, but I can't get behind their BS complaining about something they still actively participate in.

As for this game itself, its starting to look a little better to me. I really like the last video they put out that showed a lot of great looking animations and flashy powers. The game world still looks a little too empty and lifeless but that could mean that the devs have more to show us as we get closer to release.
Sony doesn't own Forspoken.
Talk to SE who chose Sony(keeps choosing them)as surely Sony couldn't win them over with money as MS has way more

The desperation is hilarious from some of you.

One is the biggest MP franchise on console that makes Sony hundreds of millions of dollars, the other is a new game that doesn't seem to be garnering a lot of interest and Sony likely helped fund to get made. Let's not forget that xbox/MS makes deals like this as well, they don't do the two year thing though now they just go out and buy the studio lol. There is no honest comparison to be made here and you know that.

It being a new “risky” ip and probably a big investment, on their part it makes sense to take the safer bet with PlayStation, in the west, for it would have a large owner base and recoup said invest with money from a time exclusivity, as well.

My guess it’ll be a slow seller, if it had FF as a subtitle it would probably hit harder.
