There were rumors that Microsoft paid developers like Square Enix and Capcom to bring games like FFXIII and Devil May Cry 4 to the Xbox 360. I don't know even today if those rumors were true or not. That rumor is LITTLE compared to this.

This is just wrong. First Spike cannot show Sony's E3 conference and now this.

:(

Give me a sec and I'll get you a link or post a link to the thread.

Edit:
It's just what F3AR said.

Given the veritable shitstorm that MS has had over the past week from both mainstream/gaming press and consumers, such a practice dosn't seem that far removed from reputation management. However...this is pretty extreme and I don't really put any stock in it.

I'm sure you'll say the something if Sony is the one doing it dirty.

If they had a strong e3 would they even need to do this? If this is true, honestly a sad attempt to change perception. Honestly if this did happen they didn't think people would notice? I guess we will find out on Monday. Wouldn't surprise me one bit with the state of things.

I hope the press have the balls approach these publishers and ask the hard question "Why aren't you showing your bloody games on the PS4?", and livestream it.

This happens EVERY YEAR, Sony puts theirs in prime time. This shouldn't come as surprise to anyone. But still they all run around here like headless choocks..

Every god dam year.

What? Shaddy bullshit acted out of desperation from MS? No one here is "bothered" by it, most of us just find it laughable and wrong.

Only stupid people don't find it laughable and wrong.

Just want to point the hypocrisy of this all....


For a while there it looked like Diablo 3 may have managed to somehow become a Sony exclusive, with the game so far only being announced by Activision-Blizzard for the PS3 and PS4. But that isn’t going to the case it seems, as now it’s been revealed that the game will be ported to the Xbox 360 as well.
This shit happens all the time.

It's just business and advertising. Both of them do it and it's not wrong. At least I don't see it that way....lol When Blizzard and Activision showed up at sony's reveal you think there was no money behind that? This is no different, if it's even true.

Well i guess "wrong" is subjective.

However, paying devs to show-up at one's own reveal is different than paying devs to not show-up at a competitor's reveal. I hope you at least see that there's a difference. lol

The paid them to shut up....

Blizzard's Lead Designer, Joshua Mosqueira, said that, while he can't confirm anything, Diablo 3 isn't "necessarily a Sony exclusive."
Why couldn't he confirm anything I wonder?

I wasn't aware D3 was marketed as exclusive during the reveal? I must have missed it then. Either way, regardless of which company, this kind of strategy is laughable and wrong.

I think we are all cynical enough to see through it. Basically unless a dev says "it's exclusive" it aint.

sure you weren't aware....lol Its called a blind eye. It's all just advertising, period. E-3 is just one big advertising show. Sony uses money to advertise too. Maybe not as much but they do it.
