CRank: 5Score: 0

@TheDBD no they can't, Playground games want to remain independant, so no, Microsoft can't buy someone who doesn't want to sell.

Also, pretty sure their new game will be multiplatform. All they've worked on so far was Forza Horizon series and it's only exclusive because Microsoft owns it, not because Playground Games wanted to make an exclusive for them.

This is like Insomniac games. Ratchet and Clank is exclusive to Playstation becaus...

On PC, it's a sure thing if your PC can do it. On consoles? They couldn't even get Dragon's Dogma, a PS3/360 remaster to run at 60fps even if the base ps4 and xbox one could have easily pulled it off. So I doubt an actual new game will.

No, they will not mention it at all in 2018 if 2019 is their release date. They will just do a reveal event early 2019 like they did with the PS4 in february 2013.

Apparently, math isn't your strong suit. PS4 Pro is a midgen upgrade and came out in 2016, exactly 3 years after the PS4. Do the math, add another 3 years and the PS5 come out in 2019.

There is also the fact that Sony said the PS3 generation, which was 7 years, lasted too long, so the PS5 will come out when the PS4 hits 6 years old.

Then you also have to consider that in 2019, the Xbox One X with its 6 teraflops will be garbage since a 12 TFLOPS conso...

The PS5 will probably play every PS4 games and will probably act like a PS4 Pro when playing PS4 games. PS1 and PS2 is anyone's guess, but PS3 should be forgotten about, it's never gonna be included in any backward compatibility unless the console itself has ps3 hardware or the hardware in it is so powerful that it can reliably emulate ps3 without any trouble.

No, I'd rather pay $60 for a game and have the option to pay for DLC, season passes and microtransactions rather than be forced to pay $80.

The PS4 isn't in the race because it already won and crossed the finish line. You just have the Switch and Xbox One fighting for second place now. Between the two, my money is on the Switch. The Xbox One X will only do well for a month or two than the sales will drop significantly.

Microsoft at their best couldn't beat Sony at their worst, so Sony fanboys don't have anything to fear ever because Xbox is never gonna beat Playstation ever. Sony will win with the PS5 and any future generations until Microsoft drops out of the console industry.

My guess is that $199.99 will become permanent soon after the holidays. Once it does drop to $199.99 permanently, the ps4 sales will skyrocket. It happened with the PS2. Was selling extremely well, then they dropped the price to $199.99 and it did far better than before. I am pretty sure it helped a lot getting it to 155m units sold too.

I buy games with MTs, I just don't spend money on the MTs themselves.

Yeah apparently III was split in two very late in development because it was far too big otherwise. So the 3rd one end on a bigger cliffhanger than the first trails in the sky or Cold Steel I. It's what I heard, haven't seen the ending myself.

Last gen, between the PS3 and 360, Microsoft was at their best and Sony was at their worst. Yet the PS3 actually ended up outselling the 360 and the 360 finished last place.

If Microsoft at their best couldn't beat Sony at their worst, I am sorry but it's literally impossible for them to ever win. Not even a divine intervention can help them. The PS5 will outsell the next Xbox by 2:1 or 3:1 and it's gonna be like that every single generations from now once becau...

Going free to play is likely the only thing that can save it. The game was supposed to be free to play, but they decided to make it buy to play instead at the last minute, which is why it actually failed.

The purpose of the Xbox One X is Microsoft's way of hiding the fact they barely have any first party exclusives even in the work and to try and stay relevant until Sony release the PS5 and win next gen again with a ridiculously huge lead like they got with the PS4.

The PS5 will be 12 TFLOPS. Video cards are about to get a much bigger boost in power than usual because HBM2 is on the verge of replacing gddr5 and gddr5x memory. HBM2 is simply much much faster than GDDR5.

Also, DDR5 is already in development will likely already have replaced DDR4 by the time the PS5 come out.

Then there is the ryzen cpu which just came out and would do a nice job. However next gen being in 2 years, something else that is better might al...

It's not overrated. In fact it's the only game on the Switch that is worth buying a Switch for.

Zelda was on Wii U, so no need to buy a Switch (you can also easily emulate on a computer if that's what you want).

Xenoblade 2 would be worth buying, but each game in that entry does everything worst than the previous. The first game was awesome, good story and world. The second game had some nice things to do, but the story was bad. This game has ...

"The 4K Era Arrives".

No it hasn't. It can only do 4K checkboarding except in a very limited number of exceptions where it does native 4K (like the Pro).

4K era will only actually arrive with the PS5.

Why would the developers do that? It costs them more to use bigger carts (even the smallest cart cost more to produce than a blu-ray).

Nintendo are the ones who went with cartbridge, developers don't have to pay the price if they don't want to. Why would they need to pay more to mass produce a game just because Nintendo are the ones who chose this format.

Sony even revised their forecast for 2017-2018 and upped their prediction. They're planning to move 20 millions PS4 by March 2018. Nintendo isn't predicting that much. I am also not sure Nintendo can meet their prediction either.
