Skewed and Reviewed has posted a new Opinion Piece which asks if The Last of Us 2 will follow the original and be the last major AAA exclusive for its launch system prior to the announcement of a new system.
I will wait for remaster on ps5 like how i did with first game
You got some patience if you can do that and not get any of it spoiled.
"Will The Last Of Us 2 Be The Last AAA Exclusive For The PS4?" What if it is the FIRST AAA Exclusive for the PS5?
@Venom Well the PS5 will not be out till at least 2020, so I hope it comes out before then lol. Also I have reason to believe Horizon 2 might be the first AAA exclusive on the PS5. We will surely get a TLoU2 remaster though as well.
Maybe I'll be the first AAAA exclusive ever!!! @Venom Think it'll be a cross gen game, or get a remaster like the first depending on when the PS5 releases. @Shiken I think Sony may wait with Horizon until a bit later in the gen. I wouldn't doubt they have something new for the launch pending though. Anyhow, more on topic, when is Ghosts and Death Stranding supposed to launch?
@Shiken I think PS5 will release before holiday 2019.
It wont be the last AAA exclusive if the past 3 Playstation generations are any indication. Playstations continue to churn out games well into the start of the next generation.
Yeah I waited for PS4 Remaster for the first game I’m gonna do the PS5 remeaster for the second.
Guys...Holiday 2019 for PS5 would mean 6 years the PS4 has been out. That fits perfectly in line with Sony's track record. I don't understand the disagrees. It seems clear to me that they are holding back a little bit on big new game announcements too, probably due to the PS5 being on the horizon.
I'm sure this game will be backwards compatible. No need to wait for this masterpiece.
Backwards compatible isn't the same as a remaster...
Corndog, if it is 86x, then it is nothing more than an HD patch.
Actually it will be a forward compatible game...
Day one for the PS4. I'm so looking forward to it.
Same here. Will go Digital with this one for sure..
What if the PS5 is backwards compatibility and can play PS4 games? As for me, I live only once and my life has no contract so I am getting it at release ;)
Tawk that "you only live once" shit!!! Also I'm a fan of broly. And yes I don't see a point in waiting like a year or 6 months to get a game when in reality you only save a couple dollars.
I was just going to say the same thing! You can see what Sony is doing from a (country) mile away sometimes.
considering the PS5 will more than likely be backward compatible, there will be no need for remasters etc...
The Last of Us wasn’t the last major exclusive for PS3 though. Gran Turismo, Beyond: Two Souls, Tales of Xillia, Dragon’s Crown, & Puppeteer released on the console later that year.
I would argue that all of them combined did not have the same heat and hype that Last of Us did though.
Doesn’t matter how much hype they got, fact is TLOU wasn’t the end of exclusives on PS3, and it could be the same case with PS4 after TLOU2
Actually none of those I would consider major exclusives. It's debatable and that is just my opinion. Problem is I agree with your second post calling them exclusive and disagree with your first post calling them major.
You don’t consider Gran Turismo 6, a mainline installment in Sony’s most successful franchise, a major exclusive?
Uhh maybe you got me on that one. But the rest no.
Article isn't about major exclusives though, i'ts about AAA exclusives. I would classify GT and Beyond as major, as they had significant marketing budgets and were pushed hard by Sony. The other three had varying degrees of importance.
And tales of xillia 2 the next year
GT is a major exclusive but the rest you listed aren't. The rest are niche at best.
The short answer is YES ! Sony is going to do the same thing they did with TLOU Launch it on PS3 then make the Remastered Version for PS4. Its going to be the same movie all over again. Launch on PS4 and then announce the PS 5 Rematstered Version complete with two controllers !
With the news that gt:sport will be upgradable per assets and can support up to 8k.. https://www.finder.com.au/g... We should not be looking at remasters for next gen.
Forget about sport, i want real GT7 with no online esport bs
I don't care if they keep the export stuff. Just give me a proper a spec campaign. The sp campaign in sport, while ok, feels a bit off for a gt game. It actually makes more sense to just keep the current sport online, instead of maintaining a separate service. They could make a different tier that doesn't require the same level of licenses to progress in the mp levels.
@kahina & rainslacker It means the game is forward compatible. Gt sport is going to be online focused. If they continue to support the game, cool, but it is not going to be THE game forever. My point is Sony and their developers are putting in higher assets in their games so that they stay relevant per next generation
I very much doubt it.
Naughty Dog is the developer, not Sony
Sony own Naughty dog, so they can make the choices.
Sony owns ND.
Apparently ND is owned by Sony. My mistake, I did not know that
"Apparently ND is owned by Sony. My mistake, I did not know that" They purchased them in 2001, it turned out to be their best purchase as they now own possibly the best game developer in the world (at least in my opinion). Had they not Naughty Dog would have been free to make games for any platform instead of just PlayStation.
Well....at least they didn't let the PS3 releases go dead to bolster their PS4 launch. I wish they had done the same thing for GT6 to be honest. But I guess they really wanted to push DriveClub instead.
PS3 didn't stop with The Last of Us, why PS4 would stop with TLoUII? Don't forget we still suppose to get FFVIIF part 1 or whatever and I think after TLoUII is so perfect time.
It should be, that would be the ultimate swan song for ps4
I wouldn't put this game on hold for anything. My Pro is waiting... patiently.
No it isnt
The wait is painful!!!
Exclusives is an essential part of the Playstation brand and reason why is number one in this gaming industry, so knowing that ask again that question and you will know the obvious answer.
I think it'll be the last big AAA first party exclusive for the PS4,just like the first one was the last big AAA first party exclusive for the PS3. Though I could be wrong but I don't think the game will release sometime until 2020 knowing it didn't go into full production until 2017 which would be 3 years in 2020.
GT6 was the last big AAA 1st party exclusive for the PS3. It released after the PS4 came out. I think it should have been a cross gen game, and could have been a big boon to the PS4 early in the gen. But I think Sony wanted DriveClub to come into its own.
GT6 wasn't as big as TLOU. GT6 sold close to 5 million copies,TLOU sold over 17 million.
TLOU sold that across two platforms, over many years. It also didn't release after a new gen started. GT6 had some things going against it, but for all intents and purposes it was considered a big AAA release.
We could potentially still have another two or three years left, that's enough time for other titles to fill the gap before next gen (assuming those titles are in development now).
Im playing this game the day it drops... dont care what the naysayers have to say. Whats that line from got? "A lion doesnt concern himself with the opinions of the sheep"... like a baws
So a remaster on PS5 all but confirmed. Got it.
I dont think there will be one. PS5 most likely will incorporate backwards compatibility at least with PS4 titles.
Very much looking forward to Ghost of Tsushima myself.
No, it’s not.
Very possible. The first was for the ps3 and it sold very well
it could be Ghost.
What happened to Days Gone?
Ghost of tsushima and death stranding will be the last games, not TLOU 2
Maybe tlou2 will be the beginning of the last wave of games before ps5 is announced...
it will be the last for us...
Sony will continue to release PS4 exclusives even after TLOU2. It would be stupid to throw in the towel so soon. Especially when the PS4 install base is as big as it's ever been. This is the time more than ever to experiment with new IPs/ exclusives etc.
My Pro is ready!!
TLOU wasn’t the last major exclusive for PS3, though… and its sequel probably won’t be the last for PS4.
I highly doubt it. Who knows when the PS5 will release? 2020?
Hmmm... it is the last AAA if it is, it is not if it is not, doesn't affect anything at all, doesnt affect the quality of the game, doesn't affect the release date of PS5, doesnt affect the number of exclusives that will be released, there is no point to discuss or write an article about, just a genuine opinion that the author should find something more interesting to write an article about.
Why does it Matter regarding it being AAA? Its a Naughty Dog Production, they are one of the most Efficient Developers in the industry. Their games, each release, is putting the industry on NOTICE that they are getting better and better at this craft. Naughty Dog and AAA are not mutually exclusive....
