News Comments > The Division Open Beta Next Week

Well, I think that entirely as a response to your videos that they need another beta to regain the trust necessary for a good launch.

It sucks, but some PC games are just dead on arrival, and fade after 1-2 weeks. Kinda makes me wish I was alright with playing on a console, they have the numbers to keep games alive.

i can't think of any games that bombed on PC but flourished on consoles.

also, ubisoft's sales are currently 20% pc, making it their second most significant platform with xbone rounding out the bottom of the next gen pack at 12% and ps4 at 27%. i don't think the difference is as big as people think.

though certain kinds of games certainly have their pet platforms. if i wanted to play call of duty multi for the rest of my days i'd buy an xbox one.

Consoles are where the money is at. Sorry, but it's the truth.

if you break it down as "pc versus all the consoles", sure. but PCs account for 20% of ubisoft's sales, their second most important platform. it's pushing almost double the numbers of the xbox one, ps4 is at 27% and the rest distributed among old systems.

the division being a next gen only title we can extrapolate that pc will account for about 1/3 of the sales with xbone rounding out the bottom of the pack. same thing that's happened for other major titles like the witcher 3.

brushing off the pc as irrelevant is misinformed.

i always bought IW's games for the campaign first and multiplayer second. the guys at respawn probably have the pedigree to put together something really solid.

halo: nightfall was produced by ridley scott and defiance had a 100 million dollar show budget and fizzled. keep chasing that transmedia empire dream boyos.

I don't buy for a second that Halo Nightfall had a 100 Million dollar budget.

i don't know, defiance is what had the 100 million dollar budget. they were different examples.

I'll say that I'm interested in a single player campaign for this game. That said, I can't help but feel they are adding it because they (executives) didn't understand why it wasn't the success they were hoping it would be. I have no problem with devs dropping single player (or multiplayer for that matter) so they can focus on one aspect of the game. The problem with Titan Fall (imo) is it still felt like the multiplayer that gets tacked on to a single player game.

i agree with this in theory but look at the practice: you've got a developer with experience saying the campaign is 75% of the budget (granted, probably just to justify shitting out the f2p game he's working on), so sure, cut it out of the picture.. but then we end up with relatively empty online experiences like star wars battlefront (or to an extent the original titanfall), and they're still charging 60 dollars for the title and 40 for the "season pass".

Talk about shoddy journalism. At the BOTTOM of the article, there's a thing that says "Update:" and lists out that the GAME isn't cancelled, the YouTube video tutorial "Ultimate Game Dev" thing is. The story has (half-heartedly) been updated to reflect this, but the headline is still sloppy, and the clarification work is slipshod, at best, because, hey, click bait!

And people wonder why I no longer want to do anything with my Bachelor's of Journalism.

"UPDATE: Develop has been informed that the Kickstarter money referenced by Tereshinski in the above video refers to his crowdfunding campaign for the Ultimate Game Dev video series, which raised $4,459 rather than a Kickstarter campaign for Ant Simulator specifically. The game was instead funded by pre-orders offered directly throught the Ant Simulator website. The body of the text has been changed to clarify this."

their mistake was saying all the money wasted was entirely from kickstarter. the money wasted was from both kickstarter and pre-orders. ant simulator is still certainly canceled. the title of the resignation video eteeski posted is literally "Ant Simulator is canceled".

Something doesn't add up there. They blow all the money, but HE is not allowed to talk about anything or HE will get sued, and HE is offering refunds (from what money?)

Seems fishy all around.

he posts on some gamedev forums and from what i've gathered, he is a colossal fucking retard and signed a contract that rescinds control of the IP and made his two friends (seen here on the website splash page playing dress-up like adults)"consultants" which gave them carte blanche to spend money as "business meetings", etc. he can't release the project without them due to the contract so he's fucked.

classic mistake. newbie developers and programmers never seem to know how to spot "ideas guys" (aka fucking useless parasites) when they're starting out and do dumb shit like this all the time.

Barring (again) the ridiculous idea that North Korea could invade the US, it really doesn't look half bad. I got kind of a Watch Dogs vibe from it, though this is just a straight up shooter, right?

Might be interesting.

apparently it was going to be china originally but they ended up hiring a CIA analyst/field officer who explained that economic interdependence made that retarded.

i remember thinking it was really stupid until i played it, but the game does like a 2 minute what-if intro that made sense.

i actually really liked the game but i played it through three full times and according to steam only racked up 10 hours.. not a lot of meat on those bones.

stories like that ISP one make me think "libertarians" live in some fantasy world. no government! privatize! think how great it will be! corporations can just increase profits by charging more year over year without wasting money on infrastructure!
it's capitalism! someone else will surely rise up to challenge them! look, it happens with ISPs and telecoms all the time! right?

I never finished it, found about 40 hours in that I really wasn't enjoying the story because it was still a big mystery. I liked the idea of souls being recycled and stored and split personalities being two souls trapped into a body but other than that.. no explanation why you SHOULD care that you're a "watcher" and why you should go after that guy at the device.

that was the biggest problem. the game's writing is so overwrought, so dense. i had the same problem, i literally had to go read somewhere about why i was doing anything online at one point during the game because i forgot.

it just feels unfocused and meandering. the writing is just too much self-important fantastic metaphysical bullshit.

Well that's interesting!


that jumped out at me also, but more because i'm not sure i understand what he's implying. that he found out after leaving that the powers that be considered another old republic title but wrote off obsidian for it?

it could just be me but i'm getting a lot of subtext from that interview that he's sick of obsidian's bullshit and failure.

it seems you and i ultimately agree then. the "tough on drunk driving" zero tolerance bullshit has led to a lot of people getting DUIs who shouldn't be, which ultimately dilutes the significance of the charge. drunk driving resulting in accidents or fatalities should result in felony jail time. there are just few crimes i'm willing to write off a person's entire life for, at the burden of tax payers.

Oh you, with your pedestrian personal attacks. I yawn. And yes, clearly I meant for them to actually be beaten as we all know that people will ACTUALLY physically vomit up their genitals if you strike them hard enough.

where are the personal attacks you imagine yourself beating away? you said those things. you randomly brought up obama and gun control of all things; you advocated for police brutality. you are mediocre.

Games are better and cheaper today,

You're delusional if you believe this, graphics are better no doubt, but that is technologically inevitable. There are plenty of things that were better from that era. When's the last time a modern AAA game released its source code? When's the last time we got dedicated servers that weren't walled garden/steam controlled?

I'm sorry to tell you but things have gone in a much more locked down direction, anyone who denies it is just incapable of accepting that truth.

i don't really see how source code availability and dedicated servers equated to better games.
