About the exclusive content in the PS Season Pass

So as many of you know, the PS will get extra content in their Season Pass that Xbox will not get, yet we are paying the same price, and receiving the content a YEAR later. Why restrict people from accessing what they paid the same price for? It's not the other timed content that bothers me, but the fact that we don't get what we paid for and that we have to wait a year to even receive it. (I'm talking about the extra content, not the expansions) Since most of you guys like saying I am crying and to get over it,how about this, you pay 50 dollars for a new game which is supposed to include all DLC for that game but one copy gives you more just because it is for a different console and if you own the opposite console you will get it one year later, which would make everyone forget that they were even there, thus sparking no interest in it, wouldn't you want to play that content as well, without having to go to that console so you can play it sooner? It would seem like an unfair deal (which it is) and not giving people what they paid the same price for is clearly a bash to a lot of players, yet you don't want me talking about it in my opinion? Lots of people got muted for their inability to respect my opinion. And the bashing and ''get over it'' continues.

    1. That's just it...you DIDN'T pay for that content. SONY PAID FOR IT. By giving Activision MONEY to offset the cost---and risk---of making such an expensive video game. SONY paid for the right for their customers to get access to content before Xbox owners do. Just like Microsoft has (for years) paid Activision for the right for their customers to get DLC a full month before PS owners get it. Yet you don't hear PS owners endlessly whining about it. Or how they are getting cheated by not getting "what they paid for" at the same time as Xbox players. You---as an Xbox player, I assume---at just finding yourself for the first time on the short end of the stick you took for granted. Microsoft is having financial problems, and isn't willing to shell out the money to counter what Sony offered up. 2. If that content matters that much to you, then you have two choices. a. Buy a Playstation and a copy of Destiny for it...and you're good to go. (I have both consoles and made the decision to primarily play it on PS4 because of the exclusives) b. You are so offended, that you decide to vote with your wallet, and you refuse to buy the game or play. If you don't feel strongly enough to do either of those things, then you are wasting your time---and everyone elses---with this whining. This is how the console business works. You just didnt' notice it before, because Microsoft used to be the guys with the big wallet. Now they arent' anymore.

      Sony bought that content for all it's users. MS didn't. Thank MS. And I think you are muting others that do not share your opinion, respect probably has little to do with it.

        Note: I have found out that these exclusive content items are actually DLC from each pack items that will be cut out of the Xbox season pass and given to us until Activision decides to give them to us.

        • Seriously shut up. We all get the game, we all get the expansions. Playstation just gets a little extra exclusives. Who cares? You still have the full game and expansions to enjoy. And who cares if we get those expansions a year later. Besides, its not like PS will get the expansions right at launch anyways.

        • Ok first, let's be honest, 90% of exclusive content comes to xbox first and almost no one says or gives a shiz. But Playstation gets exlclusive content for one game, Destiny, and bam it's a big deal. And I know it's a much smaller time frame for most other games but sometimes it's still worse. Such as in call of duty, yes, ps players only have to wait a month to get content but it's a full month without [b]any[/b] new content at all and they watch as xbox players play it. Whereas for destiny Xbox players are only gonna be missing out on a few small items while still that won't make much of a difference to the game, while still being able to play the major portion of the expansion at the same time as Playstation players. And second, Bungie is a business, just like all other gaming companies, it's a business. Businesses want money, and Sony gave bungie money. So, in turn sony gets more support from the company. You can't expect everyone to get every thing equally for everyone. When you buy a console you should realize that certain consoles will get exclusive content and there's nothing you can do about it, so you should have thought about that before you purchased your console. It's the same concept as exclusive games, companies such as sony and Microsoft throw a bunch of money at developers, such as bungie to make their games or content come to the companies system exclusively. Another example of this is an xbox exclusive Sunset Overdrive, Microsoft threw a bunch of money at insomniac to make the game come to them exclusively. And I've been an insomniac supporter since their spyro days. And when I bought my ps4 I very we'll knew that sunset overdrive was an xbox exclusive and as much as I wanted it I still preferred Playstation over xbox. It's like a tradeoff, you may want some stuff that is on one console and not the other but at the end of the day you just have to pick what matters to you most. As much as this sucks there is nothing you can do about it, obviously it would be great if there was only one console and everything would be on it so everyone was equal. But life isn't perfect so it's not fair to complain about how one developer supports a company over the other, after all they don't owe you anything. I know this was a hell of a long rant but I've gotten tired of all the arguing and I just wanted to let this out of my system. Also please do not take this in any way negatively towards anyone, just wanted to try and explain my views on the topic. P.S. Cheers to you if you read the entire thing, also please don't mind my grammar I didn't wanna spend hours trying to right this perfectly.

          • When Destiny was first announced it was exclusive for Xbox 360 first, then a long time went by then Bungie flipped the switch to bringing exclusive content to Sony and PS3 and PS4 being lead systems . So now that a lot of gamers on one side feels upset over not having access to paid content with the purchase of the game for a year and a lot of those people are not going to buy it or are still on the fence. I am going to buy it on Xbox One because I have a few guys that want to party together on Destiny even though I have both but I can't blame X1 gamers for not wanting to buy or sitting on the fence because a lot of hot titles are coming out.

                  • Its because Bungie has been making Halo for Xbox for years so now that they are expanding they are trying to bring in a fan base that has been locked away from them. Besides this happens all the time PlayStation has always been good about securing exclusive content

                  • The content that XbOx get a year later is not an XbOx deal, it's a PS deal. So, if you want the content you have to go to the company that has it. That's business. All companies in the world do this. Your bank current account could be better than mine, giving you more money and interest. If I want that, I have to change, even if I am paying the same price. Shopping markets sell goods at different prices, are you going to go to Wall Mart and say, 'Hey dude, the corner store is giving away a free taco with some mince meat, you give me the same deal......... because'.

                  • You are failing to realize/accept the fact that PS users and Xbox users are get exactly what the same thing because they paid the same thing. PS users are getting extras/timed exclusives because Sony paid extra. Maybe instead of blaming Bungie you should be emailing Microsoft and telling them to get off their wallets

                  • Both consoles get the same for their $50, so nobody is cheated However, Sony paid to get extra stuff for [i]their[/i] users. You want that too? Talk to Microsoft then. Also, the article linked is based on a soure which has been updated. Always check the primary sources before starting a rant: [quote]Update #2 Scratch that last update, Activision has once again contacted Eurogamer to retract that statement saying it has yet to formally announce details.

                      • Honestly i am glad sony took advantage of this even though i own an xbox one, they deserve it since we tend to get the good exclusive content for fps, cod and bf series, We also have evolve and the division exclusive dlc coming this year, so missing out on one game should not phase us at all.

                      • It's a couple of guns, bro. There are better ones out there. And you shouldn't feel ripped off. It's really just insignificant things to make the PS community feel special. It's like a stick of gum in your pack of baseball / Pokemon / MtG cards. Big deal, they got a stick of gum.
