I can think of many other games I'd port before this.

MrMagz245d ago

For the record, Overkill Software doesn't really have that many games that they could port. PayDay is the biggest franchise they have, so I don't think it's that we are getting PayDay 2 over say a Tom Clancy or Battlefront or something like that.

I think a lot of people are under the impression that Nintendo controls which games are and aren't ported to their system. Yes, they are the gatekeepers, but they don't have control on other companies plans.

Glade I wasn't the only one that saw the flawed logic in that one.

i went back to this game on PS4 when i bought it on sale for $4 and it has not aged well imo

PFFT245d ago

Well at least its something.

Prepare for an unoptimized, low frame-rate mess full of microtransactions (developers fault actually, the PC version is highly unoptimized). Plus, lagging teammates because there's no Ethernet port.

Testfire245d ago

In console mode there are ethernet adapters.

AcidDvl245d ago

Yeah, that you need to purchase aside, because there's no Ethernet port build in the dock.

Testfire245d ago

Whether included or not, it doesn't change the facts, so don't try and move goalposts.

Erik7357245d ago

Well....dont play pc gaming franchises on console then I guess is the solution

AcidDvl245d ago

That's not the point. Even on PC the game is poorly optimized.

Yay a game from august 2013! Let me run out and buy a switch for this gem /s

On the flip side, its a newer 3rd party release than skyrim (nov 2011).

When nintendo said 3rd party support these are the types of games we were all thinking of 😂

Whos willing to bet it will have a +50$ pricetag.

Erik7357245d ago

But but I can play it on the go, something that no other version of this game can do!

Goldby245d ago

let me know how that internet connection works while you are playing pay day 2 on the go in a subway

_-EDMIX-_245d ago

smh, so laptops just don't exist in your world huh?

someone72244d ago

Im excited to have an fps on the go. Where I live(Hong Kong), our subways, buses, trains, etc... all have 4g lte 55mb or faster connections with unlimited data and low latency.

So the go aspect is huge. Not a single proper alternative.(vita fps games suck)

AcidDvl245d ago

They also have World of Goo from 2008! It's clearly worth 399 bucks! /s

R00bot244d ago

What. Who ever even implied World of Goo was worth getting the console for? That's Zelda's job.

R00bot244d ago

Payday 2 came out on the PS4 recently too, but nobody batted an eyelid then. A system getting a game should never be twisted into a negative thing imo.

TekoIie244d ago (Edited 244d ago )

Well, that's cuz it's on "their console" buddy.

In all seriousness though I never saw people point out similar when diablo 3 was announced for PS4/Xbone 2 years late but w/e. I guess there's a little hypocrisy there.

As for the release of Payday 2, i dont mind it. I enjoyed it on PC but dunno if I wanna double dip. I have 2 friends with Nintendo Switches so if it has local Co-op I think I'll pick it up. Otherwise ill pass.
