What Uncharted 4’s delay means for PS4 and Xbox One

GameZone's Matt Liebl: "Sony is going to be just fine, even if they don’t find a blockbuster replacement for Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End this holiday season. With over 20 million PS4s sold already, it’s not like Sony is pressed to make up for a slow start. And with a promising lineup already slated for 2016, it’s not like the PS4 won’t ever get blockbuster games again. Microsoft’s Xbox One may claim the holiday season once again due to attractive sales and blockbuster releases, I appreciate Sony’s willingness to give Naughty Dog the time it takes to ensure a polished gameplay experience."

I think what it means is people will have to wait longer for the game and that's it.

maybe everyone felt the need to polish their linear tps games after the order's critical reception.
what i find funny is how quickly people have forgotten about quantum break being delayed the same way .

If Uncharted 4 was a 2015 game it would made 2015 the best year in gaming ever.

Maybe UC4 being delayed to have more competition for GOTY in 2016.

Kiwi661167d ago

No whats funny is how you forget that the thing about Quantem Break being delayed was fake as there was even an article on here about it a few days ago as it turns out the guy who said it doesn't even work for or is known by any company involed with the game

"What Uncharted 4’s delay means..."

What it means is that Square Enix missed out on the 21 million (probably 30 by Christmas) userbase of PS4 owners who would have jumped at the chance to play Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Greatness Delayed, will be Greater than Greatness Rushed.

Bathyj1167d ago

Good point Mr Pumblechook.

Square likely thought PS4 owners would all get Uncharted over Tombraider anyway so they didnt mind taking a bag of money to delay it on PS4. How funny would it be if the PS4 version came out around the same time as Uncharted in 2016?

Quantum Break hasn't officially been delayed. The guy who originally said it was has now changed his twitter and everything. He was probably a troll.

Ezz20131167d ago (Edited 1167d ago )

I do't get it !!
Do people want a rushed game like most of Ubisoft games or others rushed games that full of glitches or a a very highly polished game like what ND alaways deliver ?!

no one said any thing when CD project and Rocksteady delay their games to make them as good as possible fact everyone was saying that this was for the best

i respect developers who delay their games to make them the best instead of releasing them broken
do not forget that The Last Of Us was delayed and look how it turn out to be at the end

Foehammer1167d ago

I'm guessing MS will release a Tomb Rider bundle to satisfy everyones 3rd person adventure needs.

Probably resulting in something similar to Holiday 2014, where we saw big NPD sales.

This way MS and Square Enix will see huge sales.

The only thing it means for xbox is that the competition they were looking for with Uncharted is over.

Unless ofcource they delay tomb raider to 2016 as well.

bahabeast1167d ago

I dnt mind uncharted 4 being delayed. It's still early in the lifecycle, I would like uncharted 4 to be the best it could. GAMEPLAY, GRAPHICS, MULTIPLAYER, ext.

Joda1167d ago

yeah 6 years should be enough. ehh lets just push it back a decade just to be safe. Better make it 20 years for all the other spineless fanboys. We got indies lots and lots of indies! I'll play you in mercenary kings!
