"Tough Decisions" include a massive profit margin on accessories that everyone will need at some point, specifically the joycon controllers.
They haven't changed in decades if you think about it
That was more infuriating than the cancellation of Scalebound. I want a proper Wipeout, not this re-release BS
Doubt it. All he had to do was ask Carmack "So where did you work before this?". Even a quick wikipedia search for 30 seconds would have brought up Zenimax.
That's probably true.
It's also ripe for shovelware since there's no games coming out for like a year.
Sony would do it right. The PSP 2 anyone?
Sony has been shutting studios and cancelling projects too. They just have way more studios and projects going on at once. For example, Motorstorm PS4 was cancelled when Evolution Studios was shut down, but no one knew about it until concept art was recently leaked. Microsoft prematurely announced a lot of games. Some worked out, some didn't.
N64 suffered from a bad controller and low storage game cartridges. GameCube suffered from a bad controller and low storage mini-DVDs. Wii suffered from a bad controller that had potential and low hardware specs. It just had the luxury of being a cheap fad. Wii U suffered from a bad controller, low hardware specs, and poor marketing. The Switch isn't better or worse than previous hardware attempts by Nintendo. They've always been a bit weird.
Hard drives have become a blessing and a curse.
Someone should be in charge of Xbox as a hardware and online service, but someone else should be in charge of games. And neither should ever answer to the other.
Kind of crazy that the cancellation of one game would have this big of an effect. But let's be real. Microsoft has never been a big player in exclusive games.
I still remember when they released Halo Wars, and then immediately closed that studio down. Just because.
However much trouble the game was in, Xbox One needs exclusives. Microsoft should have doubled down on making sure it came out in 2017. I mean can you imagine of The Last Guardian never came out? Scalebound looked really really impressive.
Probably not. Most likely it suffered from technical issues related to the game engine. Let it be.
Is Bioshock noticeably upgraded? Or is it just a cash grab like most remasters?
