This guy should be called "The Common Sense Guru," Since he predicts nothing that isn't common sense.

"PS4 and Xbox One will sell at least one unit on launch" IM AN ANALYST! YES!

Actually no, he is supposed to predict the atmosphere around the industry and provide details that we wouldn't otherwise think of.

If his job is to constantly tell us common sense, then what purpose is does he serve? None. Thanks for the insult though, come again.

Edit: It just bugs me, its "SUPPOSED" not .... "sopost" lmao

Have you ever watched the show?
He is an analyst by proffesion, but on the show he just answers question from users...so when a user asks "will publishers just keep releasing sequel after sequel..." what answer do you want???.
Muffins1223  +   351d ago
So his job is not to predict future even though its certainly going to happen.And what determines what is "common sense"...you?The thing with you is that you think common sense is universal and is the same for every human being.Its not and he helps many people and theirs a reason why investors pay him from private advice because he knows the gaming industry to a certain degree where he can found out "common sense" information that's common sense to you and me but not for others that do not spend their lives with games. Btw he was ASKED to answer this,so someone out their dose not have this common sense you seem to think everyone has.

Whats up with the insults? Honestly, what did I do to you? Are you pachter and got butt hurt by my comments?

He predicts the atmosphere around games. If someone asks "what sequels might we see" he could very easily dig A TINY BIT and talk about Halo, Gears, MGS6.... no instead he basically says COD will get a sequel.

And what is defined as common sense? Hmm how about two of the games he listed already have sequels announced? der? If you are investing in something and don't know that, perhaps you shouldn't be investing in that product?

Damn son let the game come out first before talking about a sequel. I'm 99.9% sure all three will get sequels but it's a little early to even discuss that lol.

All three are already confirmed sequels.
bungie has an contract over an 10 year lifespan for destiny, with 3 games and 3 DLC.

EA: said titanfall is exclusive to xbox over its entire lifespan, but possible sequels are multiplatform, knowing EA they will probably milk the shit out of it.

Ubisoft: confirmed there will be a sequel, they said they are not making an new IP without it having a future.

So yeah what you say is correct and all are 100% confirmed. And actually leaves the article pointless.

Titanfall sequel is already confirmed.
JackieCruise69  +   352d ago
Successful games having a chance at getting a sequel?! No way!
Sarcasm by the way.
Way to point out obvious things, Patchy.

But on a serious note.. If Watch Dogs is as good as it looks I'd love a sequel for that.
lets_go_gunners  +   352d ago
Ativision said they would support destiny for 10years. Thats like 3, 4 games maybe.
Skate-AK  +   352d ago
Lol. That is one of the dumbest question I have heard asked. Of course they will. Can I have a check please?
SlapHappyJesus  +   351d ago
Popular games may become series/franchise.

dcj0524  +   351d ago
NO WAY. If something is in popular demand then you NEVER release more of it. That's crazy.

This just in - he predicts another Madden somewhere down the line. Possibly next year - but yeah right, it can't possibly be done in a year, they always build that from the ground up!

Seriously, that's as obvious as God of War 4, a new Mario title, or Half-Life 3... *sobs*

I can't see Destiny getting a sequel, it's essentially a MMO, I see them working on it, adding, for years to come.
Muffins1223  +   351d ago
well destiny 2 and 3 have already been confirmed by contract....its not a mmo,just has some mmo traits.Its really the first of its kind. Imagine bordelands but with online and single player together. You can actually disable the online features if you want too but your basically disabling the whole game.

This is why I said essentially, sequels sometimes don't always happen even signed, dependant on reception. It's just a thought considering the cost and sheer size of this project being above anything seemingly in gaming history.

Time will tell.
