    Yeah my friend was very chuffed about this.

    Gears of War is also coming out this month which I might get if I'm bored.

    It's Halo I'm really waiting for. Would love to play the later ones but not enough to buy a Xbox for them

    Exclusives schmuives

    I really hate the idea of exclusives games (yeah yeah I know they drive the sales of consoles - yawn). I really like the direction MS are going. I wouldn't buy an Xbox One but if they bring their games to a platform where I invest thousands of pounds I am going to buy their games that I wanted to play. Nothing but a win win for them really

    Oh yeah I completely agree, it's just amusing when you see the fanboys rave about one consoles being better than the other and suddenly it gets put on another system it's kind of funny, especially when the likes of Crapgamer and Mooch swear it will never happen!

    Oh yeah it is. When it was announced that Quantum Dream was also heading onto PC there was a article with over 1200 comments on Eurogamer with fanboys losing their minds!!

    I sometimes wonder if fanboys only like exclusives as other people miss out on them. It's as if they take pleasure from the fact people are punished for not playing a certain platform.

    Wow....I first saw "free" and I'm thinking "free to play" crap. But this actually looks damn good. Not a full-fledged Forza, but doesn't look like it is funded by microtransactions either (or did I miss that). Just....a free game?

    Halo on PC would be huge. A lot of Xbox fans wouldn't like it one bit. I think a lot of them interpret these franchises getting PC versions as MS losing confidence in Xbox and shifting their attention to their other platform. I don't think that is the case though. Microsoft is really pushing Windows 10 and the Windows Store. It isn't like MS is taking anything away from Xbox owners so...

    It really would be. The F2P Halo 2 is already very popular and plays very well. It really whetted my appetite for a proper Halo PC game. Would love to play it but not enough to buy a console.

    I don't think MS are abandoning the Xbox platform but expanding it to other platforms which they own. I think it's a really smart idea but it's not like they are turning the Xbox into a SaaS platform.

    Cross-buy and Cross game saving has the potential to be huge. Especially for people who own both platforms.

    The games are still exclusive to the Xbox brand, so those who like list wars can still wield that as a weapon in the war

    I don't get it, why free? what's the strategic advantage?

    is it perhaps for gaining some sort of a cult following? because PC users are good at doing that. also, i reckon they won't be losing much money as it wouldn't sell much on the PC. also this could be more of a F2P title, not completely free. color me surprised if it is.

    My guess it's due to gamers feeling scorned since their last attempt to invade PC gaming. (GFWL: never forgive. Never forget)

    Plus it might tempt so people into testing out either W10 or the W10 game store. Who knows. I'll probably test it

    This is good for PC gamers, but man I think Microsoft is making a mistake by putting out console exclusives on the PC.

    How so? It's a revenue of more sales.

    There's plenty of PC only gamers who wouldn't buy a console to play their games so now they can sell to those.

    Then it's unlikeliness it will draw from the Xbox pool of potential players as lets be honest, the majority of console gamers can't be bothered with PC gaming.

    Microsoft are trying to get as much market share as possible, mainly due to the Xbox One losing market share to Sony
    Keep it simple!

    Simple. People who own a PS4 have no reason to grab an XB1. Consoles and PC are 2 different things. This is Xbox One vs Playstation 4. Microsoft could be losing console sales because people will be able to grab exclusives on their PC.

    And from what I hear they are giving this game away for free? Dumb..

    Killer Instinct on the PC is another bad move. That game is awesome and in my opinion is a great reason to own an XB1.

    Well you're assuming the people who own a PS4 own a capable PC.

    The way I see it is this. Now people who don't have the console can still be potential customers of MS. MS are still getting money they would've otherwise not had.

    Then you have console gamers, and there is plenty on this site alone, which have zero interest in gaming on PC and the pitfalls that come along with it. Are they more likely to go out and buy a 600+ PC or a 250 console?

    This isn't PS4 Vs Xbox at all. This is about MS bringing two platforms which they own together and I think they should be applauded for that as it's brilliant.

    No exclusive game would make me shell out for the Xbox so them giving me an option to play it on my preferred platform is a win for them and a win for me. If anything it saves them money. They lose money on each Xbox they sell and make it up from people buying games on that system. Now there is zero loss but all gain.

    You need to not look at this from the phoney 'console war' angle and look st the bigger picture. Microsoft want $ this will only further that

    Chopped down version. Free. Persuade someone to buy a console and buy the full game? Perhaps.


    This doesn't have anything do with the PS4.

    Sure it is a win for you. I am speaking about Microsofts home console though. I think it is a bad idea to release exclusive games on something 99% of the population already own. And min requirements allows you to play damn near any PC game on the market on damn near any type of PC built.

    Hell, my Surface Book without the Nvidia gpu runs Diablo 3.

    The whole point of exclusive games is to target consumers.

    It fits in to my argument as to why I think it is a bad idea for exclusives to be released on the PC.

    I reckon they'll keep the same thing as Quantum Dream. Buy the Xbox One version and get the PC version. At least if they started that going forwards it would be quite special.

    How on earth is it a loss for the home console? I would never buy the home console anyway so there is no loss. You're still assuming that 99% of the population owns hardware suitable for playing these games. It's unlikely that 99% of general PCs have the right hardware.

    Let's look at the requirements...
    both Forza and Quantum Break have these as recommended requirements: I5, 16GB RAM and a GTX 970

    Do they really sound like 99% of the PCs out there? Does it even sound like 50% of the PCs out there? Comparing those games to a very basic Diablo is grasping.

    I know for a fact that you can go below min requirements. My laptop can also run Fallout 4. And that is with the $#@!ty integrated gpu.

    Anyways, I already explained why I think it is bad for Microsoft. Don't give consumers reasons not to purchase your home console. Simple as that.

    Go bellow it and get an awful experience? Yeah cause that's how people want to play games.

    Well, that's your opinion but I disagree with you. i hear it all the time how people don't game on PC because they can't be bothered to deal with all the issues, then they go on to list lots of problems which keeps them console only. Now suddenly Microsoft decide to release games on another platform, which is still their own, and it's now giving people a reason to not buy their console?

    Console gamers who had no intention of getting a PC wont suddenly go out and buy a capable PC because of this. if they really wanted to play these games they are much more likely to go out and buy a cheap console.

    Lets be honest, Microsoft know more about their business than you or I so if they see this as a sensible route to go then I'll believe that this is the right thing for them and not some knee-jerk reaction.

    Oh, but I am. You seem to be of the opinion that they need to keep it on the Xbox because that will make people buy it. However I am of the opinion that just because something has something someone might want to play it doesn't mean they'll go out and buy it.

    Seriously, from MS perspective which is better, a little of something or nothing of a lot?
