Long live single player games

DarkOcelet974d ago

You can never underestimate the power of Single Player games. They are just amazing!

TwoForce974d ago (Edited 974d ago )

Single Player games are always a strong point. Don't you agree, my friend ?

christocolus974d ago

@Dark

Agreed.Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver remains one of the best single player games i've ever experienced.

Livecustoms974d ago

The power of the UK market as well ;)

jb227973d ago

No doubt. SP is literally all I play, and it's been a little disconcerting seeing so many games move over to a mp only release, but hopefully high sales of this year's sp releases will make devs think twice about putting all of their eggs into the mp basket. Also really hoping we see fewer open worlds & a few more focused linear type titles. Open worlds can be great fun coming from the right devs, but they are way too pervasive now so we end up w/ a smaller percentage of open world games done right. Seems like 2016 will be a great year for more narrative focused sp games, possibly even besting 2015 w/ games like QB, UC4, R&C, & TLG.

Good games are "amazing". Period. Regardless of genre ,amazing game will get notice regardless of genre. Great games come in all shapes and forms.

_-EDMIX-_973d ago

Stop trolling this single player thing bud. Its been a great year for all game genres. I don't even know if I can define single player as even a genre as playing by yourself can be done on many, many different games.

All game types did well this year, no need to keep trying to single out single player (no pun intended)

I absolutely love single player games but prefer X1 because I get the best of both worlds.

Edit below: Sure you can but one will always offer a better experience.

MRMagoo123974d ago

What's that even mean ? I can say the same thing about ps4.

slappy508974d ago

Lol contrary to popular belief, you can run multiplayer games on PSN

SniperControl974d ago

@candy

"Sure you can but one will always offer a better experience"

Urmmm, no, i can definitely tell you, that it's not my experience.

Ocsta974d ago

Yes, Ps4 sure will. Thanks for clearing that up ;)

killer_goat974d ago

Yeah ps4 will give the better experience. Thanks for clearing that up.

showtimefolks973d ago

candystop

ok while that's your preference, i hope you do know that PlayStation brand is known for it's single players games. on xbox360 the 3 main games were all MP focused

halo
gears
forza

fable was single player but it was never treated by ms as a true AAA ip

so far this gen sony has more single player exclusives than anyone

Bigpappy974d ago

That is really impressive for Tomb Raider to Debut at #4 in the all formats chart. Competing for cash with games like FO4, COD, Halo and FIFA I thought it would do OK, but it seems to be doing much better than ok.

DarkOcelet974d ago

Honestly, i didn't expect ROTR that high on the list among those other games.

Also i didn't expect Halo 5 to drop to NO.10 so quickly.

PistolsAtDawn974d ago

What's crazy to me is that UC Collection dropped WAYYYY down even though it's been less than a month, and Gear of War and COD GHOSTS!!!! Sold more than it by a lot. It's like that game came and went and nobody knew, despite a console price drop. As far as Halo...for last week dropping to 10 isn't a huge surprise...actually still being in the top 10 is a surprise...it's a console exclusive, came out 3 weeks ago...and is probably gonna get another bump on black Friday. I'm happy about RotTR getting some love though...AMAZING game.

jon_snow974d ago

63,000 is very less for ROTR compared to 650,000 for TR in U.K week 1 and 250,000 for TR remaster U.K week 1.

It sold less than 10% of 1st sale of original in U.K sale which is very bad.

sullynathan974d ago

Tomb Raider is one of the best selling and most iconic series in video game history. I expected it to be that high.

butchertroll974d ago (Edited 974d ago )

Rise Of The Tomb Raider BOMBED! All because MS and SE deal. Congrats, you killed Lara!

Upper number is 56 700 copies :

@jon_snow

It's worse

Ezz2013973d ago (Edited 973d ago )

@PistolsAtDawn

So let me understand that logic of yours
You are saying
it's crazy to you that Uncharted collection (Console exclusive/remaster that already most people played on ps3) dropped in the UK charts after a MONTH

But it's OK for Halo 5(a console exclusive/new game) to drop even faster after 2 weeks because it's (console exclusive) ?! 0_o

CD are not happy with ROTR numbers and
Microsoft are not happy with Halo 5 numbers that's why they never post them and only post *revenue*
which is not the same thing as *profit* just to act like everything is good.

It sold 56,000-63,000 (360 & XB1 combined) units, it's far from impressive, if anything it flopped hard.

DarkOcelet973d ago

I thought 63k from XB1 only.

Damn! That is not good at all.

jon_snow973d ago

Square Enix was complaining original TR didn't sell well even though it had overall sell of 5 million both TR and TR remaster. Can't wait to hear their statement now. With less than 10% of week one sale in U.K this game would be lucky to reach half a million.
For Comparison sake
Original tomb raider world wide sale week 1 crossed 1.5 million. Let see how ROTR does i predict worldwide week 1 of just 150 thousand(10% of original).

MasterCornholio973d ago

I thought it was good until I saw the sales for the previous game

That's pretty bad then.

NovaCorps972d ago

good for them
next time they should think before making it exclusive

glad that ms and CD are now hitting their head through a wall

FallenAngel1984974d ago

I'm certain that globally Fallout 4 will sell better on PS4 than on XO.

ChronicPsycho974d ago

Selling better? You kidding? Ps4 version is going to murder XO version globally, and bethesda is more associated with xbox. Hilarious really. Same was the case with witcher 3, there was no witcher game on playstation platforms prior to witcher 3, and ps4 version of W3 ended up killing xbone version by a huge margin every where.

demonddel974d ago

Where did you read that I'm just curious

Uglyday974d ago

The install base of ps4 vs. X1 would say so but that also makes your prediction bland.

NotAFanboyyy973d ago

You are really going out on a limb there...
