"Games are good"


This is fantastic news! I've been a Spotify subscriber for 2 years and I LOVE the service. About 85% (just a rough estimate) of my favorite music happens to be on the service, so I rarely have to get my music elsewhere. Can't wait to have it on my playstation! #1.4

I loved the first game and never got around to playing 2 or the Pre-Sequel. So this is a good chance to someday give those a play, I'd rather get a remastered collection of the two down the road than to buy the originals, I actually don't even have my PS3 or 360 hooked up at the moment, so there's that aspect of it as well. I'm glad they're releasing this, but I won't buy it until I can get it for about 30 bucks probably. I can wait (I've been waiting years alre... #1.6
I'm honestly curious why my comment gets mostly disagrees. Can't somebody reply and tell me what's so disagreeable about what I said? In my personal experience, with my play style & the way that I'm personally skilled at playing the Souls games, that play style approach is not viable in Bloodborne, and therefore I had a difficult time adjusting to the gameplay. If there is anything that isn't factually accurate about that statement, please educate me. #1.9.1
The alpha of Bloodborne was far more difficult than any of the Souls games for me. I'm used to playing souls games with a turtle style, shield out, long-range attacks or magic. Not at all viable in the Bloodborne alpha, and most likely not in the full game. There is no shield for god's sake! It completely changes how you play the game. My play style is no longer supported, so the adaptation for me is very difficult and I'm not sure I'll even be able to complete the game,... #1.9
It's all a matter of taste. For some reason there seems to be a rather vocal group out there who hates this kind of game. Personally, I love this kind of game. Anything that has something in common with Uncharted 2, ShenMue, Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, even perhaps Metal Gear Solid, which is loaded with story scenes, and the TellTales games (which everyone seems to love, but for some reason that kind of thing is unacceptable when it's part of, and not even the entire focus of, T... #1.22

Doesn't seem like a lot of job security in this kind of position. These game studios let people go after a game is completed all the time (sometimes even before a game is completed). #12

Seems like a fair price to me, but I've already played all the PS3 games that are available on this service that actually interest me, so I won't be subscribing. #2.2

Yeah, that's a PC with a controller-friendly user interface, that's meant to look good under your television. Other than that, it isn't a console. It's not a closed environment, it doesn't have optimized software being developed for it, and it isn't even a uniform hardware platform, it comes in different variations of power with different components under the hood, exactly like a PC. It's a PC, just one that's meant to act a little bit more like a console, b... #1.1.11

Anything that tries to use Metacritic user scores to make an argument should just be discounted outright. The user scores are beyond useless.

As of right now (things have apparently changed slightly since the December 19th reference date in Nintendo's ad) there is only 1 game combined between PS4 & Xbox One that has both an 85 Metascore and an 8.5 user score: The Last of Us Remastered. That's out of 36 games that have an 85 Metascore. Or just 2.8% of the games... #1.5

@Ps4andxb1: Actually, proven true by the greater number of games currently out and coming out for the PS4. #27.1.3

Anybody can write a list. Here's one for PS4: Uncharted 4, Ratchet & Clank, The Order: 1886, Bloodborne, Disgaea 5, Street Fighter V, Until Dawn, Tearaway Unfolded, Persona 5, MLB 15: The Show... See, now what did that prove, you got an Xbox list, I got a PlayStation list. And nothing was lost or gained. #1.5

Is Crackdown 3 really a possibility to be coming in 2015? Pretty cool if it is. I hope it is more like the first, I liked that game a lot. #1.2.6

YESSS! Definite buy for me too! I've loved every Disgaea game. Except I haven't yet played Disgaea D2, because all the others came out on PSP or Vita and I was waiting for the Vita release on that one... but I might just have to get it on PS3 soon if they don't announce it by spring! Disgaea 5, whether it comes to Vita eventually or not, I'll be getting it on PS4 on day 1! #1.1

I loved the original on Dreamcast. Wow, that was a while ago! Haven't played any of them since that one. #6

Not much coming until E3 then, if they aren't planning to have an announcements event between now and then. The upcoming slate is pretty light until after E3. Looks like my Xbox One is going to be playing Halo and nothing else until E3, but I'm confident it will have another killer lineup for the fall just like it did this year. Pretty much the mirror image of the first year then? Not much for 8 or 9 months, then lots of goodness at the end... Looks like PS4 is getting a large nu... #1.10

What is this downgrade everyone is complaining about? The game looked just as good as the teaser to me. The gameplay doesn't look quite as good as the cutscenes, but that's to be expected and has been the case in every Uncharted game, and indeed in EVERY game with real-time cutscenes. Without having to process input, AI, or anything else but a predetermined scenario, real-time cutscenes are easily capable of looking better than gameplay even though they're both real time and us... #1.8

Hot DAMN this game looks incredible! #1.12

DougLord, there is a variable you're forgetting... the smaller the library, the higher the percentage of overall game sales will be for any particular game.

Infamous 2, for instance, sold 1.73 million copies on PS3 - out of 861.5 million total game sales = 0.20%

Infamous Second Son, however, did not sell 0.20% of PS4's 57 million total game sales, which would be about 115,000 copies.

It actually sold MORE copies than Infamous 2, at 1.... #14.2

I went to 2 stores on Black Friday (both Target stores, about 10 miles from one another) at about 3pm and 4pm. Between the two of them, they had no PS4s in stock, and only 1 Xbox One in stock (it was the bundle that included Kinect, they had none of the 329 version in stock). Based on that anecdotal evidence, both seem to have been selling pretty good. #1.8
