Playdar takes a look at the reaction to recent PS4 game delay news in the only way she knows how.
It seems that the only people "reacting" are fans of the competition who would rather play an unfinished game
Yep. Think about it, they KNEW it would make the PS4 launch line up even weaker than it is but they still chose to delay it rather than release an unfinished game, i can respect that.
I'm ok with the delay. It save me money. I'm too busy with gta5, ghost, battlefield, killzone, Each game would take at least a month out of my life
Delays happen. to think reaction is coming from the competition is stupid. If you are a fan of gaming in general you understand that delays suck ass but they happen. the nature of the delay is what should be the focus. If the game is delayed because it is getting much needed polish then let it take its time to be ready. if the game is delayed due to porting issues (not that would be the case here for DC) then it makes people pissed because it could be ready for their platform but they have to wait for it to be ready across the board (cough.. rayman legends..cough)
I think this is healthy for the xbone fanboys/gals they have been spinning all summer with M$ 180s then dGPU, hidden power, xbone being incapable of 1080p .....etc and calling cute-s an actual gameply .. pathetic! they even made Gifs just like the deep down once except one is an actual Gameply so they finally got a chance to downply the ps4 so let them let all the stress out they may feel better and stop spinning fact for change
The way people reacted as if it had been cancelled altogether. It's a delay, it happens. It's getting stupid because it's a constant back and forth between the fanboys. One set of fanboys say they do it to get their own back but dont realise that it's been going back and forth for a log time. Not since the MS DRM, not since Move and Kinect, not since the PS3 launnch but from the start. Why cant people stop trying to one up each other because it's not going to end. You might feel like you're doing something but youre not. Theres always something new to find but its getting silly. Game delays, PS4 not support external DVR at launch, cloud will never work (it will), PS4 freezing (it didnt), my console will have better games (first round it even and it's very subjective, how indies all of a sudden mean jack shit (Theyre the soul of the industry). The only thing that deserved to be made a fuss over was the MS DRM but they fixed it. Even if the X1 is weaker it doesn't matter to the scale people argue blindly over it every day, kept it in theyre back pocket and troll ready. This goes to both sets of fanboys. I just even seen MS trolls in the RYSE articles derailing their own comments section goading Sony fanboys. Nice One!
I was really looking forward to DriveClub, the game looked great to me already, didn't care much about its ailising or it being 30fps. The only concern I DID have was that none of the demos showed multi car races, only racing against ghost cars. I'm not against the delay, there had to be a good reason to delay a launch title so I fully support it but I'm still bummed out. Still plenty of other games to play on PS4 and GT6 on PS3 will be great anyway.
PS4 delays They mean DriveClub...the others being multiplatform games which are on both consoles.
Some fans are so fickle was it not just recently everyone was up in arms about gtaV crashing and losing character etc. the game developers are trying to take time and polish the game rather than release a buggy mess and they complain. no wonder the industry sometimes don't take gamers seriously
In reference to Driveclub, We can only blame ourselves fort he delay because of our constant expectations of 1080p 60fps. For Watchdogs it was more of a decision to delay because of all of the other games being released in that time frame. Ubi wants it to be released with little competition so they can continue the franchise.
That maybe the case, but watchdogs was doing pretty well in preorders, and really pushing it to next year doesn't stop it from going up against other big games. Infamous, TitanFall, dying light, evil within, and destiny are all out next year in the same time frame as watchdogs. Hopefully they are taking time to make the game a lot better
Indeed, but in terms of Ubi competing with themselves with the likes of AC IV and the after effects of GTA V which is still a factor going into the holidays they feel much safer next year in terms of sales.
yeah it seams that the people whose quotes were written were from people who was going to buy a xbone or just didnt like ps4
@xHeavYx Exactly, i don't even know why they care since they're not going to get a PS4 (and they don't even care about the game). I admit it was a sad news for me, i was really waiting to play it with my PS+ but... well, if it gets better, it's ok. BUT i want to see it on PS+ when it's out ;P
Not very happy about it. Watchdogs was the only game I was going to buy. None of the others really appealed to me. Driveclub was cool because it was free, not a racer fan but at launch am more open to things. I likely won't even download it in the spring because by then games I ACTUALLY want will be out like Infamous. I wonder if they will add a new free game now though
they are... Contrast and Resogun free on day 1 :) then plus the 7 other free games on day 1 :P
Contrast is free now?! That was the one downloadable game that really looked good.
lets face it, we're all going to have plenty to play as it is, i for one am glad they're spacing it out a bit. I may have otherwise completely skipped over some of these titles.
Watchdogs was delayed because the ps4 version isnt ready, its ready on xbox. Ps4 in general is having red line of death issues, you can watch it on youtube.
Lol that just happens when it gets to hot.Once they pulled it out it went back to normal.
lol this guy.....lol im not gunna bite. rrod= the actual DEATH of you console red line of "death"= hey idiot, your overheating me by locking me in a closed box. (console dosent die) so sick of xb fanny boys trying to lable the ps4 w the same hell the 360 had. ot i hate the delays...but better games happen..they seen the problems and want to fix them rather than let it release broken.
Your name should be comments4kids because that was the stupidest pile of shit that just came out of your tiny brain.
You made me laugh. That was funny.
Watchdogs was ready on xbox? where did you read this? the PS4 is holding development back? where did you read all of this, point me out please
Perhaps devs realized they shouldn't holds back one console bc of another consoles limitations. And in general I used to put my xbox in a plastic bag to see If it wouldn't over heat
Doesn't bother me, I'm not buying a PS4 until next year anyway...
is it now confirmed driveclub is delayed?
@ saggy official confirmation about drive club situation http://blog.eu.playstation....
Watch Dogs delay is a more serious delay when compared to Drive Club, as I knew a lot of people who planned to get it for the PS4 but now they're unsure as to what to do. The Drive Club delay is rather disappointing and I planned it to be my subtle alternative to GT6 or Forza 5 and I hope they keep the free version for PS+
if killzone SF gets delayed im gonna beat their dicks off!
I'm using this in the follow up article
I hope your a woman
oh so i gotta be a girl to beat a man dick off!? #hater #SWAG
That is without a doubt the strangest "threat" I've ever seen.
You not seen 21 Jump Street? :P
No I have not.
Interesting choice of words.
KILLZONE SHADOW FALL will be epic!! I'm just playing kz2 online and I had to go to my old japon account because there is some kind off error network today for my american account and I have been playing from rank 1 and wow the tension yhis game has my heart is bumping like crazy its amazing! No bot no spexial abilities .. juat pure raw gun and custom rules in kzsf will allow me to create this experience! I can't wait.. I actually can kz2 is still amazing
dont make this into a normal conversation or ill beat your dick off too!
How did this go from a couple of games being delayed to a ps4 red line of death rah rah just asking I know Sony and Microsoft will work out the kinks before launch.
Less stress on my wallet atleast KZ isn't delayed then i would really throw a fit
Not gutted, but a little disappointed. Although in saying that for me it was more a 'download, and if i like it.. possibly buy'. It was never a sure thing. I'm actually probably more likely to buy it if the delay benefits it enough to peek my interest (not a huge racing fan), but admittedly in terms of pushing for Christmas mind share (for the console) the delay isn't ideal.
playdar... CO UK. Says it all.
When a developer delays a game 10 years on the making........ On the supposed easiest platform, where games would take3 Weeks to be finnished. LLLLLLLOOOOOOOOLLLLLLLL
I prefer a delayed game , with full HD 1080p and 60 FPS than an incomplete game at 720p ( Killing Instinctive), 900p ( Ryse) or a simulator without climatic change o day-night cycle ( Forza 5). XD
If you prefer full hd/60 fps buy a pc. Less than 1% of ps4 games will perform it. Soon even a wrist watch will play better games than ps4. Classic game business model is doomed. And to avoid suicide they went all cheappo.
There is no question now that the Xbox One lineup is better right now. But thats because M$ abandoned the 360 all this year. Sony is still supporting the PS3. I have no doubt that in the long run, PS4 will have the better console exclusives. I really wanted to play Watch Dogs, but now i will focus on Assasins Creed 4 and KZ4. And wait for the amazing exclusives that are yet to come.
To be honest, non of them are that great. There are 1 really awesome game on each platform, one being Forza and the other being KZ:SF. Ryze has mostly gotten negative feedback so far, you can't deny that. So if anything they are on par. The good thing with PS4 is though, that you'll have tons of free games to play until things will be serious.
Anyone thinking about jumping ships is making a huge mistake inFAMOUS:SS The Order 1886 Deep Down Driveclub Naughtydog has 2 teams making games SSM has 2 teams making games Media Molecule: Unnanounced PS4 game QD: Unnanouced PS4 game GG: Making a new PS4 IP Japan Studio: Last guardian PS4 Polyphony Digital: GT7
Lol easy, people wont cancel their preorders just because DriveClub got delayed :).
How do you figure. SS is, if i recall correctly, the only one of those games with a release window. Everything else, you're probably looking well into 2014 and for the stuff not even announced, 2015 and beyond. Personally i'm not a Micro fan and won't be getting a Bone, but I dont see how some one delaying their purchase of a ps4 to buy a bone is making a huge mistake. It has more games at launch and in the launch window. I mean unless you just want a pretty console under your television.
Eh. Im most likely cancelling my preorder. I was looking forward to watchdogs, drive club and Shadow fall. Now its just shadow fall. And im not spending $550 on a console, $100 on a game, $80 on ps+ for a console with one major game and a few indy titles. I'll wait until some other games come out first.
I'm a big fan of PS4 but.... not Watchdogs + Not Driveclub + Not Battlefield 4 + Not Helghast campaign in Killzone :( I'm not sure to buy PS4 first day, maybe I'll wait until Infamous.
Battlefield 4 isn't coming to the PS4? What? How do you know you can't play as a Helghast in KZ SF?
The Helghast are amazing, but GG is so stubborn to make a game with them, they prefer a boring ISA campaign,with bland story and nasty characters ( Templar, narville, rico). Maybe Echo could be a good opportunity to play for the Helghast side, but this is very unlikely. Shadow Fall looks incredible, but I give up,I don't have any hope for the long awaited Helghast campaign.
It was almost delayed for PS4 and Xbox 1 but it's still coming to both consoles. http://www.neogaf.com/forum...
History repeats itself, oh man....
Honestly who cares if it was delayed only people complaining about this never intended to buy a PS4. I mean for crying out loud there giving you a free version of this game for PS plus members. Killzone and Knack still look good and I garantee the a majority or next gen sales will be 3rd party games anyway. Delay doesn't mean it's bad means there trying to make a good game regardless of console. I mean we spend months anticipating games we constantly get teased for its part of being a gamer so if its as a good as some people say I'll wait.
Dafuq did I just read?
