Which title would result in more PlayStation 4 sales? Should Sony first focus on a fresh God of War adventure, or will a new Gran Turismo hit huge?
Both would be better for the PS4. Many will buy both and others will be one or the other.
Of course both! I think GT7 would be the bigger draw of the 2. Personally I would like a port of GT6 to PSV before GT7 on PS4, and getting GoW out asap for PS4. though I don't think either will be announced in December (which is most likely in relation to Spike TV awards), or maybe GoW will. I would rally like to see what Sony Bend has been working on, and if Sony London is doing anything else besides the new Singstar.
With Driveclub shaping up very good I think God Of War would have a bigger impact right now. I would wish for both next year though, we need those games in any case :)
It has to be Gran Turismo 7. That has a major following.
Totally off topic but I'd love to see some major support to ps4 eye camera. So much potential there!
i'll take both, thank you.
GT7 easily would be the true Next Gen Driving Experience. Besides God War 3 was suppose to be final Chapter in the series. God Of war 4 while of-course fun. It's main focus would probably be the graphics.
They could transfer to Norse mythology
GOW3 wasn't meant to be the last chapter. If you remember, at the end of the game after Kratos dies, something or someone took his body. In GOW4 for we could see who or what took him and with all the Gods dead, the world was left in chaos and out of control. That ending was clearly an opening to more games. Kratos could even fight all sorts of demons in hell ala Dante's Inferno(awesome game btw) or something to then come back and restore peace to the world. That right there is two more games. I'm 100% sure we will see more GOW with its fun multiplayer again.
I would like to see a similar game to god of war ,but with a different setting and character and lore.
There's hellblade coming out by ninja theory that'll be based on Celtic mythology. I know some people aren't incredibly fond of ninja theory after DmC. But not me I liked that game lol
I agree, I think God of War needs to move out of Greek mythos. I think the perfect setting would be with Viking lore.....settings in Valhalla, Asgaard, fighting Tyr, Odin....awesome. Maybe one in Mayan/Aztec lore....
It would be funny if it was still the same God of War character, but he was still so pissed after killing all of the Greek gods that he went out searching for other gods to kill.
Kratos vs the Vatican. Imagine the Blades of Chaos in the Sistine Chapel. That would literally be like the elephant in the porcelain shop..
@TheRacingX: why does God of War need to move from Greek mythology as long as the series delivers the way it does? another series with other mythologies is more than fine with me but by no means they should move GOW from its context.
I'd buy both no question! If I were to choose one though I'd probably pick GT7 just because I really enjoy the beauty of the games, along with all the cars. I can't even begin to imagine how awesome the game will look on PS4. God of War will no doubt look a awesome too
It's not as if they are made by the same studio. In fact they are probably both already in production. GT7 is for sure, God of War, not so sure but a new IP from Santa Monica would be quite nice. Especially as GoW ascension wasn't fantastic, and I think they've sort of exhausted the God of War franchise anyway.
Yeah how hard would it be to get the 2 games made simultaneously, especially when you consider God of war is Santa monica and SCEA, yet gran Turismo is polyphony over in Japan, would have thought GT7 is on the cards already let's face it they take a good 2-3 years to make (thanks Kaz haha) but yeah God of war as well would be epic that along with last of us just released and GTA5 and uncharted 4 to come amongst others ps4 is looking like even more of a beast ;) just need Shenmue 3 now please and a re release of 1 and 2 ;)
Gran Turismo will push 10m. GOW will push 4-5m. Clearly GT is a tad more important right now.
I'll take an order of both.
GT is still Sony's flagship, GT7 is coming to PS4 regardless, as it was ALREADY announced. GoW probably won't be for a while as of Ascension still being fresh.
Yeah Kaz Yamauchi said last September that GT7 would be coming in 1-2 years, with this year being ruled out already it's all but confirmed to be a 2015 release at this point. 2015 is pretty packed out already. 2016 seems like a likely time slot, 3 years after the last GOW, just like the last 2 games from the series. Whatever happens I can't wait to see what Santa Monica have been working on.
We will have a new Gran Turismo for sure. I love God of War, but i can't imagine how a sequel could be, let's hope for a great game by Santa Monica, they are talented.
For PS4? GT7 would undoubtedly be better. It's Sony's best selling franchise and one of the few to repeatedly top 10 million in sales in video game history (Pokemon and Mario are the only other 2 exclusives really). For a man however God of War 4 (or rather GoW Norse with a new protagonist to be exact) would be better. A man just isn't into racers. Both will be coming in 2016 though a man thinks
A different man agrees
That would be good but what about GOW: Egyptian Mythos.
That is also acceptable but a man is just more into the Norse Gods than the Egyptian ones. The idea of a thunder battle with Thor or a battle with the Midgard Serpent just seems epic. A man pictures thor being sort of like Hercules in that it would be evenly matched with your weapons clashing but of course with epic scale of the devastation of your attacks. The Serpent could be like Cronos in that you're trying to rip apart a much larger opponent. Odin could be the Zeus obviously with his famous staff. Baldur, Heimdel, and of course the trickster Loki could all make excellent and varied boss battles. A man doesn't know egyptian as well but their battle capabilities aren't really gone over as much it's more of just them being really powerful. The Asgardian Gods are very defined in their traits and have specific weapons and abilities which lend themselves well to epic gaming in a man's opinion.
Well if they did make an Egyptian style game I hope they make it authentic, instant fail if they use jackal headed people because the heads where actually of wolves which where the only dogs any where near the Egyptians.
another man disagrees. well disagrees with your logic on what "a man" likes.
GOW it has to end for real not cliffhangers like 3 and gran turismo can wait a little bit let driveclub do his job.
As a system seller? GT7...if only Yamauchi doesn't take 11 years to finish it.
Why not both. Its not like PD and SSM are in each others way.
A man thinks both are coming in 2016 anyway (GoW in March and GT7 holiday)
Gran Turismo for sure. I think God of War has run its course, tbh.
Both and a new IP. Next.
Legend of Dragoon Chrono Trigger/Cross 2 I could go on with game franchise that cannot be found on PS2 and PS3 but people love.
[email protected]^& ps4 console sales. I just want a PS4 God of War game.
I think God of War should have ended at 3. If they want to continue that series then do a new character in a new mythology other than greek. GT7 or GT6: Definitive Edition need to happen soon.
God of war all the way!!! I gotta have one on PS4!
GT7 would make me buy a PS4, GOW wouldn't.
neither for me. I'd rather have a new syphon filter and (following bloodborne) a demon souls 2
Gran Turismo is the bigger worldwide brand. It's the bigger franchise. Heck, it's Sony's biggest franchise.
I rather see a new God of War, we've got Driveclub and a host of other racing games right now.
Damn I still need to finish Ascension and you guys are already debating over a next gen sequel or prequel!
God of War would be a better show of what the PS4 can do. GoW games are known for their over the top scenes and setpieces. Racing games all start to look the same after a while.
god of war we already have driveclub
both but i wouldnt buy gt 7 but we need more bew ips
gow will be amazing, but i think the gameplay needs to be changed. gow3 had one of the most amazing graphics for ps3 but gameplay wise feltlike a ps2 game. i actually like gow2 better. gt7 would be great, but polyphony normally takes its time and i really dont want to see ps2 models being used. i rather have less cars.
I'll grab GT7 if it's the finished game unlike GT6 which had a list of content promises that didn't get delivered.
Strictly from a sales & console moving standpoint, there is no doubt in me, that GT7 is the bigger killer app...that's easy & a no brainer when you look up the MASSIVE, incredible, sales that the series has racked up over 3 consoles.... That being said, GT7 will take over half PS4's lifecycle to develop, as these developers just take time to get it right, that is why GT is labeled THE REAL DRIVING SIMULATOR, rather than a hybrid biatch, that can't decide which way it swings...I just prefer my racers to either be more sim or more arcade, rather than that NOTHING FEELING in-between, limbo, type thing...coughforzaarghchoo. Now, in the time it takes them to nearly finish one GT game, SSMS will have released 2 or 3 God Of War games. So, as a gamer, I would prefer to hear GOW4 is on it's way, as I know that I will get it, sometime before the zombie apocalypse. Plus, I just love my Kratos action, over GT... Now, if this was a GOW or Motorstorm for PS4 question, or a new "TRADITIONAL" non-open world Burnout, then it would be a far more difficult choice.
In the real world God of War is more popular than Gran Turismo Biggest God of War fan page on Facebook has over 5 million fans, biggest Gran Turismo page has less than 2.4 million. Look at Google Trends https://www.google.co.uk/tr... The only reason GT has been a 10+ million seller is because of mass bundling & xmas releases. God of War 3 sold somewhere around 6.5 million without bundling and released Q1. I bet taking away bundled sales GT is hardly bigger at all. Hell look at GT6, the game is AT LEAST as good as GT5, obviously better, but look at how horribly it sold comparatively. Without bundling, GT just isn't that popular. God of War IV would not only be significantly more exciting, it would get a lot more attention from gamers and would sell more PS4's.
