Ubisoft-PS4

EA- Starting to Slide to the Xbox 

Activision-Starting to Slide to the Playstaion side

Square Enix- PS4

Capcom- Neither

WB Games- PS4

T2 and Rockstar- PS4 ( i know no games were made by them for ps4, i mean playstaion side)

It's got noting to do with favoritism. It's all about who is offering them the most money.

The PlayStation 4 has better specs, develipers wanted a system with the best specs. Has nothing to do with money unless its a game going elcussive. Example, TitanFall, was being developed for 360 and ps3 1st before xb1 or ps4. Microsoft came in, knew they didn't have anything to offer, threw money around and now its a XB1 exclussive. Doesn't matter the last 3 decades of games were better quality on PlayStation Systems.

Seriously? Sounds like a rant of a PS fanboy to me....

 

Ubisoft - please name me one Ubi game coming to PS4 (or PS3) that's not also coming to XBO (or 360). Good luck with that.

EA - PvZ:GW and Titanfall are the only EA games not scheduled for PS4 or PS3. It's simply about money for those two, but it won't affect future titles

Activision - same question as Ubi

Square Enix - the only Squenix games PS gets that MS doesn't are FF and KH remakes. Every "new" title has come or is coming to both sides, which means Sony either paid for the remakes and/or MS didn't want them.

WB Games - same question as Ubi

T2 and Rockstar - same question as Ubi...unless you think "Agent" is still happening.

I agree with Setzaroth, it seems to be a publisher thing and as such they go with what can make the most money. Large consumer base, exclusive contracts, preferences for game types, etc could sway a decision.

Take Two even gave Microsoft timed exclusive DLC for The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. As you and others have said, it's all about who's paying the most.

I wouldn't say it's always about the money. Sometimes it's about which company developers / publishers have a better relationship with --- then money.

Oh yeah for sure. There's a reason games like Volume are coming to PlayStation platforms first and that's because of the dev's relationship with Sony. But when we're talking stuff like exclusive CoD DLC and Titanfall exclusivity, I think it's pretty safe to say we're talking about money Smiley Tongue.

Last gen every developer loved the 360, but apparently programing on the PS3 was a pain. Now is the other way around, thats why you see developers favoring one. Remember the poor job Bethesda did to get Skyrim on the PS3? It's all about the programming, of course money has something to do with it too.

 

But we can all agree that all developers hate the Wii U.
