Before the launch of PlayStation 4, there was a lot of hype regarding its technical prowess. Some developers claimed it would outperform most PCs out there.
Couldn't agree more, still having a blast though. Off topic my black Friday sony gold playstation headset came today, wow just wow, £53 just watched dawn of the apes, played driveclub and p.t, watched fury trailer and listened to new endless river pink Floyd album, best purchase audio wise ever.
ABsolutely stunning album. From the retro vibe of "It's what we do" to the haunting "Talkin Hawkin" it's crazy to think this was largely outtake material from the Division Bell. I hope more fans recognize the colossal contributions of Richard Wright and Nick Mason after listening to it. Just sublime.
Apparently it's not so obvious to a good amount of gamers who have short term memory loss every new generation...
Yo Rashid. Small typo that I noticed: "Some of the BEEST games on the PlayStation console were released couple of years after launch" Well Uncharted 4 should be this gen's Uncharted 2, as weird as that sounds. I'm quite confident in ND delivering. I'm cautiously optimistic about The Order. A new IP most likely would have the impact like Uncharted 2 and TLOU if UC4 doesn't do it for others.
One good reason about porting the Last of Us on the PS4. Some members have experience on the ps4 while helping on Uncharted 4.
I agree, but sheesh, something about that title is off.
"Been nearly around long enough" is wrong. "Been around nearly long enough" is what it should say.
I'm not a grammar nazi but that title just annoyed me it just sounds so wrong.
I have to agree. Something is wrong with the title of this article. It's a correct sentence, but for some reason it's a very confusing sentence.
I don't understand, why is it ever too early to get an experience like Last of us? I am expecting to have these types of experiences with Uncharted 4. It's never too early for a fantastic experience.
Takes time for developers to really get the most out of a system. Uncharted 1 was great but Uncharted 2 was light years better.
And yet, i preferred the first one
Simply put this is an excuse and an opinion not a fact. The fact is this hardware is well understood in general. With the PS3, there was an issue learning how to maximize the PS3 cell architecture and wrestling with blu-ray, but in this generation, all the consoles are essentially PCs based on the same overall architecture. And the manufacturers both use very well understood API sets that are tried and tested so in reality this generation will probably peak much earlier than the previous one. To date, Sony has not brought a single new gameplay element to its games this generation... Killzone, infamous SS, TLOU, and LBP3 are iterations and improvements on previous versions of those games... (Unless you consider more pixels and framerate on the screen innovation). Sony hasn't gone anywhere new this generation yet, and The Order is doing nothing new. It is simply a cover 3rd person shooter along the lines of Resident Evil crossed with TLOU. And Bloodbourne is simple going to be Dark Souls for the next generation. It is not that these are bad, they just lack innovation... That's really what Sony hasn't and doesn't seem interested in doing this generation. Innovation. They are known for it but it hasn't appeared yet. I really want Sony to come out with an innovative game like TLOU and Unchartered were last generation. Unchartered was one year after Sony launched last generation. Here we are one year later and Sony has yet to show us what they are great at!
Not so much that it's too early got such experiences to happen, but more that it's a bit unreasonable for us to expect that so early. HOPE for it, sure. But too many people are EXPECTING such a masterpiece, and downing the games that are available because they're not UC2 caliber.
Because the Uncharted 2 team are why The Last Of Us is great - and why, hopefully, Uncharted 4 with its beautiful sunken city look (reminiscent of Drake's Fortune's river scene) will be great. If it's too early for the Uncharted 2 team with their experience it's too early in general. Any big fan surely wants Uncharted 4 to have a long time spent on it.
I guess Mario 64 was pretty bad as a launch title compared to its later titles.... oh.. wait.. lol This gen is just starring slow with epic games, no big deal... when they come... it will be amazing. Witcher 3, uncharted, the order, fallout 4, mass effect... can't wait!
Thats one example. In fact, aside from Mario 64, the ONLY other launch title I can think of being on that same level is Halo on the original Xbox. What launch titles were there for PS1, 360, PS2, PS3, or the Wii? Nothing that I can really think of. Sure there were some good games, but games of the same caliber as TLoU or Uncharted? No way.
“I don’t see how any home console could ‘outperform most gaming PCs’ as PCs are constantly evolving,” Sam Gross, Designer at Secret Lunch said to GamingBolt. “We haven’t seen either Sony or Microsoft’s boxes pushed to their limits though, so there’s obviously more to be gotten out of them. I often prefer late-generation console games to their contemporaries on PC – the stage of a console’s life cycle where they really start wringing out all the power they can.” - That is why I've held out on buying a PS4 until 2015. TPP, baby!
True, but it doesn't even have it's uncharted 1 or Resistance 1. I'm confident the best exclusives are still to come though. Playstation has always been about long term.
