Sony’s kicking themselves for not making the sequel exclusive

At least they rectified that with Bloodborne

Tankbusta40307d ago

You'd think everyone on this site owned a large swath of Sony stock with all these biased statements....its kinda getting old.

generic-user-name307d ago

Hows that biased? It's true.

They probably also kicked themselves for not buying Rockstar Games back when they had the chance to do so.

Is there something wrong with analyzing companies decisions and evaluating what they should and shouldn't do?

You dont need to own stock in a company to have an interest in their business decisions.

I don't understand your comment. Why are you moaning about PS4 fans being here? Should their be a limit or something? Also why are you complaining about it on a Demon's Souls topic? You know the game that was exclusive to the PS3!

starchild306d ago

I think that what he is referring to is the attitude that it would be a good thing if it was exclusive. From Software has fans on multiple platforms and making it exclusive to only one of those platforms isn't really the best thing for gamers.

Silly gameAr306d ago (Edited 306d ago )

You guys are so sensitive when it comes to Sony. Anybody that comments or says something positive is a Sony fanboy that owns Sony stock. What does that make people in MS and Nintendo articles that do the same, I wonder?

drunkenspy007306d ago

wow, I didn't really get that from the statement. people get really butthurt so easy these days.

PlayStation will always be groundbreaking when it comes to new game ideas.

They own the Demon Souls IP so if a sequel ever gets made it will be on Playstation only. Dark Souls is not a Demon Souls sequel ( we all know it is but this allowed From to make Dark Souls and own the IP ) This leaves the door open for Demon Souls 2. If so it will be PS exclusive. I'm guessing that if it or a remaster are going to happen it will be next year (10th Anniversary)

sinspirit307d ago

I think that Sony has been so faithful to trying to create new IP's and fresh experiences the past few years that they put even Demons Souls on the back burner til Dark Souls stopped happening. Would be awesome if From Software ended up making a sequel to it. But, I wonder how it could set itself apart from the lengthier series.

PS has gotten Bloodborn and Nioh in the meantime and they are no slouches.

Nioh is da bomb!

Shiken307d ago

I would rather see Bloodborne 2 over Demom Souls 2. I really liked the atmosphere im Bloodborne, far more than any Souls game. Also I really like the lovecraftian lore it follows.

My only real critisism is that they should have made the three factions more relevant than they did. So much wasted potential there IMO.

HeisenbergX307d ago

@Shiken Me too man i am really hoping for a sequel casue Bloodborne was such a masterpiece..

IMO Dark Souls ain't got shit on Bloodborne

4U2NV307d ago

I liked the dungeons and dragons feeling of demons souls over bloodbourne personally but both were amazing games.
Id love a demons souls ps4 remake though, and a bloodbourne sequel over demons souls sequel

Ciporta1980307d ago

Why would they? What's wrong with more people being able to play dark souls? It's not like it affected it on ps3 + 4 because it was on other formats.

Bleucrunch306d ago

You are sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo correct. Who ever made that decision should be fired. But Bloodborne is definitely a WONDERFUL substitute. That is one SEXY ass game.

Uken12306d ago

Dark Souls 3 is more of a Sequel to Demon's Souls than Dark Souls 1.

LgbtWarrior306d ago (Edited 306d ago )

I know. Even the bosses didn’t understand it at first. They kept dying and didn’t get it. Miscommunication on both parts. Glad more people experienced the game, but if it was exclusive, the game could have really shined on Sony’s console taking full advantage of the cell processor in PS3.

Nostalgia is a strong thing.

frostypants306d ago (Edited 306d ago )

Acknowledging the influence of Demon's Souls isn't nostalgia. It's an objective fact.

iofhua307d ago

What's up with the servers? They say they're shutting them down on the 28th but I was on yesterday and couldn't see any messages or ghosts.

I wanted to play it one last time before it shuts down, so I was disappointed.

PhantomS42307d ago

Demon's Souls easily made its way into my top 5 favorite games of all time. Really hoping for a remaster of it for PS4 this year, not going to hold my breath though.

ocelot07307d ago

It's an IP I would like Sony to continue with. As well as Bloodborne.
