Daaaaaamn, now this is exciting. I've personally always been more of a Spyro guy, but this is still awesome news if true. I hope Activision sold Spyro back to them too, it's not like they actually need him for Skylanders to be successful at this point, and I'm sure Activision wouldn't pass up an opportunity for a massive cash injection; I'm pretty sure that's what they do with the money anyhow at Activision HQ - straight to the vein, just like all the other drugs they... #26

7 is a good score. Review standards have gone out the window in recent years as games have gotten more corporate and media saturated.

Nevertheless, it is a bit weird that they marketed the eff out of this game to be the second coming of Crash Bandicoot. It's a bit insulting to those who put their confidence in the game - secretly Sony thought it was mediocre (by todays review standards which they're probably aware of, i.e. 7 = mediocre), but they tricked us into think... #5

Law of averages with mass produced man-made machines. I'm pretty sure this happens with most THINGS, not just consoles. #56

I think he's just gone nuts pandering to the west. The whole MGS film thing supports this too. I was pretty hyped for MGSV initially but yeah, every new bit of information I hear and see makes this seem less and less like an MGS game to me. I see no reason why Kojima shouldn't try new things, but this game doesn't feel "new" to me, it feels so homogeneous, and so similar to so much stuff. No Metal Gear Solid game has ever felt like that to me until now.

Despite all this, this game feels like the least "MGS" game to date. Big name hollywood voice actors and no David Hayter? Mission "challenges" a la Assassin's Creed? Exclusive missions a la Assassin's Creed? Open World setting likely with a effing mini-map? Kojima making Quiet sexy to get money from figurines and so he can ogle cosplayers? Kojima endorsing Spike TV and the general corporate gaming doritocracy? The game even feels more "realistic" than all... #38

@hokis4ever and BNS94: Uh, yeah, I read it this time. Is that not obvious? Don't tell me you think this "casual" look they're going for wasn't totally a "power of suggestion" thing on the part of their management? It's totally a ruse to lure in these indies. They dress up in a down-to-earth fashion, but it's still gonna be the same corporate bs. I'm sorry but you'd have to be pretty simple to not see that. Simple marketing technique. Their appea... #3.8.5

lol woops. I probably should have read the article. I thought Sony were sending out pr people disguised as gamers to promote playstation games at expos and stuff. You know, like getting people really hyped and stuff.

Still, I wish these corporate types would refrain from prowling around looking for Indies to absorb. The only reason they're doing it is because their own big triple-A companies with their big stupid games are out of ideas. They need some stuff to steal from... #3.8

That's really deceitful behaviour. Hate these kinds of corporate machinations. #3

Man I hope this means something VII related is on the way. I wouldn't be keen about a remake, but hopefully it's VII-2 #18

I like the sound of that. #44

Nintendo, and even Sony, re-monetizing their old stuff isn't something you should get behind. That shit had its day. It should totally be free now, but these corporations are too money-hungry to allow that. I'll never pay for a game from the fifth generation or below, it's absurd. You're being exploited if you comply with such repackaging

I have the same opinion regarding old consoles. When the Ps3 gets fully superseded by the Ps4? Let us hack the hell out of... #1.3

These are all "spoilt" reasons. I can play any classic game without any of these problems. In fact I even prefer classic games.

If those things really are barriers, it doesn't even take long for them to stop mattering. Just keep at the game, and if it's good, it's good.

The videogame industry manufactures what's "good" this week, and that has nothing to do with what's ACTUALLY good. Just put aside all these brainwashed... #11

Shots fired. But Sony already unveiled, albeit later on, that their console will offer much the same non-gaming services that the One will... #65

How can someone make a game where you bomb the shit out of Vietnam? How much of a jingoistic pr!ck do you need to be? Like why would you be inclined to make fun and entertainment out of such an atrocity? #1

The way I see it, the cloud probably doesn't offer as much as all the pr speak suggests. So what you've got here is a gimped ps4 version. It's multiplatform and publishers want to generate the maximum amount of profit, so the two versions have to be identical or they'll face losses from one of them.

The Ps4 is objectively a more powerful machine than the One (not like that really matters), so objectively this game and most other multi-platform games COULD look... #63

I agree. But this is totally hypocritical coming from MS. It's just disingenuous damage control. #41

MS'll make sure these recipients end up paying it back to them somehow. That or regular consumers will. I'm sure they've got all sorts of damage control plans for such a small loss. People shouldn't interpret this as meaning they care about anything else but money. This doesn't make them good people or something. #67

Microsoft made this game thinking it would appease those who accuse them neglecting Rare. So what did they do? They had a studio which ISN'T RARE develop it, and pretty much abandoned the look of the previous games. And then they made the audacious claim: "We listened." Not only that but they turned the game into a mess of microtransactions and p2p.

I'm sorry but this game is just an example of MS being completely out of touch and not caring at all for the h... #13
