The head of PlayStation UK said Sony plans to treat No Man's Sky like it isn't an "indie game" at all.
Smart, considering the reception this game has gotten when shown.
Where the hell are the games from all the 1st party studios Sony has? Most PS4 exclusives are from 3rd party.
Lol, isnt Bloodborne and The Order 1886 considered 1st party? And there is more to come. We have yet to see a AAA from the competition.
And MLB:TS. But let's not deal with reality, let's pretend the year is only 2 months long.
sony does not want this game to come to the xbox one or wii u, that is essentially what they are saying. i hope they don't prevent a pc release.
"sony does not want this game to come to the xbox one or wii u, that is essentially what they are saying. i hope they don't prevent a pc release." Unless they pay them a shit tonne of money for a lifetime exclusive or buy the studio, it will come to xbox one eventually soon after the PC release. I am sure that statement will attract buzzing disagrees, but, hey money talks.
Patients my dear son. Patients! Thy games are in the distance. On the Horizon.
^^^^ to the prophet up there... it's spelled 'patience'.
Sony is essentially trying to spin No Man's Sky as if it is a first party AAA because they're lacking AAAs in the second half of the year. Sony's failure to deliver this holiday causes they need to promote an indie as AAA (that will then make Sony fans look like hypocrites from all the slighting they've done about Ori being "just an indie"). @DarkOcelet, Ori is considered a better game than The Order and less niche than Bloodborne... you're implying it matters about the title of "AAA" rather than what's important. We also haven't seen all the Sony list makers actually show they were right about how Sony will dominate 2015. Even though I disagree with the logic of judging a game by the label "AAA", I think it is only fair that XO fans slight the PS4 this holiday for its "just an indie" exclusive. Watch how true it is later this year when Sony fans take all they can get while crediting Microsoft with nothing (probably insulting Microsoft's AAAs as worthless "dudebro" games)... Sony fans will then credit No Man's Sky as AAA quality while they didn't credit Ori similarly (or give Microsoft credit for that Ori wasn't a "dudebro" game and it is one of the best platformers ever made for a console), even though there has not been a Sony indie with such AAA quality since the 2012 PS3 game, Journey, that was ported to PS4. @shysun, yes, one of the best AAA quality indies ever made that is also one of the best platformers ever made is OK. Ori isn't really in the same class as practically every other indie made, yet Sony fans pretend it is when they make their defensive "indie" arguments.
@Del Sony was all over this game from day one! It has nothing to do with AAA games this Christmas. They secured the exclusivity very early. Lol Xbox fan have bone nothing but talk cap about Sony because they have pushed indie games even before the PS4 was on sale! But now indie games are cool to you guys? Smh
I'm pretty sure ms have been pushing indies way before Sony with xb360. They was the first to do it on consoles. Sony just followed their leed just like online feature. Sony just have better relations with devs and companies. Ms always half @$$ everything they touch that why they never last in a lot of markets. MS had the potential to dominant in every market but fail to execute and react to a lot of things. Zune and smart phone. They could have been bigger than apple in the smart phone market. Remember palm pilots PDAs , but now they want to try that had the infrastructure. Bloodborne is not 1st party
i dont know why, but i kinda have a felling that this game will be forever PS4 exclusive, and i mean console exclusive.
Yeah I get that feeling too. They would never try to prevent it from coming to PC, but with the 2:1 (As of now) install base and ease of programming I wouldn't be surprised if Sony could convince Hello Games that they should stay away from Xbox in return for tons of Sony advertising and support. Actually I wouldn't be at all surprised if Sony just straight up bought them if they release another hit game after NMS.
If You guys remember, Sony also said that they will treat Destiny as 1st-party game. Glad to know of course. They should treat all system sellers as 1st-party.
Hope it does well and is more than(creator ) Murray hype
Agree, but who is 'Murray'?
Ah, Sean Murray. I totally forgot. Ain't no party like a Sony first-party.
They did the same with Destiny to a degree and that paid off massively. NMS has the potential to be something truly special and I would back that horse in a flash.
This is a perfect game for Project Morpheus and I have a strong feeling VR support for it will be announced at E3.
Destiny sold more on xbox 360 and over the course of holiday 2014 it sold more on xbox one. I wouldnt really consider that a marketing success. Also it's funny to see how people in this thread hope sony buys the company to prevent it from coming to xbox one. Sony isn't buying anything but marketing deals lol. If or when this game is ported to PC it will make it's way to xbox one. It will be one of those games that devs will say it took only 1-2 days to port and that is microsofts plan all along in the meantime elite dangerous will do just space shooter people just fine. Microsoft are like the yankees of the console war,lets be happy they dont buy up everyone,there's no fun in that. @Insomnia_84 , you would actually consider buying morpheous?? Im sure the e3 will be packed with games that support it but unless a mandtory pack in expect few to use it. As much as kinect sold and became a pack in,look at the game support...deff a moutain for to sony climb with that one. Morpheous will be $199 just for the headset,$249 with just the wands $299 for headset wands camera. The pricing set up will have to be a mess. What if you have move but no pseye,pseye but no move. It's going to flop hard.
You're comparing No Man's Sky to Elite Dangerous? Fail. Idk what kind of pizza you like, but I don't think it's helping your brain cell count. And knock Sony all you want for buying marketing deals and/or trying to buy studios; Microsoft are the ones throwing cash at third party devs to land bs deals like Tomb Raider. Lord forbid they actually try to make a first-party new IP, but no; they'd rather pump Halo and Forza down your throat every year. Microsoft - forever playing in the short-term.
Not surprised, I feel like they've been doing that already
Yep, they are already doing that and definitely will bet big on it. E3 trailer with release date is 100% confirmed by now.
this mass effect 4 and especially Star Citizen makes this a good year for me. I love space! I know sony promoted destiny for PlayStation but... Destiny was meh imo..
This game would be perfect for Morpheus, looking forward to it.
lol. Another baldurs gate fan, guess I will have to change it ;)
With the recent chatter, I hope there's a big release date announcement soon...
Now treat Vita like a 1st party system.
This made me shed a manly tear...
Random generated planets with no building system, raiding system, mining system, or real purpose other than to explore? Boring.
Not sure about building but their is crafting. There is a mining system which is needed to gain items for crafting, and raiding is also likely included.
Try harder when you are going to troll, because it minecraft in space. An this game- https://www.youtube.com/wat... Looks like its going to be awesome gen of games.
so shiny :D, but now im interested
I'll be playing ARK in just over 2 weeks :D Can't wait.
Wtf is this game? and how did i miss this announcement. That trailer was amazing!
@NatureOfLogic I know right? I just came across it by looking at YouTube videos on the PS4.
Perhaps you could use Google to do some research?
Randomly vomited comment with no logic, showing a lack of research and knowledge of the game and the writer's sole purpose is to show their ignorance on the topic? Trash.
I really do hope there is building to some extent.
Well it does have a lot of potential. With wish them the best
Fanboys have ramped the price up. They're also stupid enough to be happy about it.
Can't wait to play it.
but its not 1st party. i hope this game is good tho....
"We have been working very closely with the developers and bringing it into our release program as if we had made it." But you didn't make it and it is an indie title. So what? should I be impressed that you are going to spend tons of money to promote this 'indie game', it wont miraculously make it a AAA you know. I am impressed with the small team who came up with no mans sky and developed this idea. I am not impressed with sony trying to muscle in on their magic. "as if we had made it" smh.
Um I highly doubt they are mad at sony for "muscling in on their magic", they're getting free advertising and such. Also its great that Sony promotes this game, it looks unique.
My comment is about arrogance. Nothing more. I'm not impressed with the comment. I don't know if Hello games mind Sony saying that they basically made the game, that is their choice to make on how they feel about it. Of course its a great thing that they are getting free advertising, and it is a very good thing to be getting behind and supporting a small team in this way... But still, I don't like that comment. My comment, my opinion, My bubble, I don't like the comment. End of.
They didn't say they made the game. What is wrong with your reading comprehension? He said back it as if we made it. Where is the arrogance in that? It just shows dedication.
Your comment isn't about arrogance; it IS ignorance. AAA refers to budget. Do we know how much is being spent to develop this game? It being indie doesn't mean it's not AAA. Star Citizen is a perfect example of that. "As if we had made it" refers to the support they're giving the developers. It's not that they're trying to own the damn thing. They are, in no way, saying they "basically" made it. That's ridiculous.
Coolest looking game for PS4 in my opinion. My only gripe. Is the walking speed always that super slow or can you run. I know, why run when you can fly? But I'm the guy that will try running around my first planet and explore it all.
And so they should, this will be a massive game when they finally release it!
Well didn't they say its was coming to the ps4 first? So treating it like a first party makes since in some ways.
LoooooooL. Sad this is what it has come too for sony LoL
It is interesting to see Sony doing so many things this gen that MS did last gen except MS was put to the stake for doing. Throwing money at third party devs, spending money on timed exclusive content and DLC, spending money on 3rd party multiplat games, spending money on times exclusive games and trying to make it seem it's their own. All these business practices were frowned on by a lot of gamers last gen, but it appears that it's ok now that Sony is doing it. I expect I'll read spin like, "Sony is getting back at MS" or the popular excuse of "sales". But I just find it puzzling how a lot of people are not fighting mad when they see their favorite company of choice doing the same things they always complained the competition was doing to undermine Sony and the video game consumers.
Times have change I do remember ms use to get bashed for promoting indies too. What was the program called that they release on xb360? I know it wasn't called xblive arcade it was a program to get indies to develop games on Xbox or port PC indie games over. They use to get burned for this even was called indiebox until Sony caught up and started releasing games under their studios like it and getting indie devs to release on their platforms. PS fanboys still make excuse that Sony don't pay for exclusives, timed, and content tho. This will never go away Sony is too perfect in their eyes. Every time they get a 3rd party exclusive or content their excuse is because Sony are just a better company and they are cool. Its deeper than money
Ironic isn't it??
The scale of the game doesn't even seem "indie" at all. Can't wait for this game to release, it'll be my replacement for Journey.
