The SP was brilliant but it was the MP that made it stand out - and the MP is why people are interested in the remaster - get player numbers up so the MP can be enjoyed again. Otherwise, people would just play on PS3/360/PC but the numbers aren't there anymore.
Enjoyed the article though, great reminder of how good the SP was.
Obviously it's a great game based on the general critic and user reception but I think price also has a lot to do with the high sales numbers. The standard £50 releases are just too expensive. Great to see cheaper experiences being explored.
Yeah, that's a worry for me too. Hopefully they only make changes to textures, resolution and lighting and leave all the physics and movement alone. It's essential for a remake of CoD4.
tbh I'm a bit apprehensive about the nostalgia factor too. It was almost 10 years ago, my tastes have definitely changed in that time. I might not enjoy it as much this time around - I might just leave it as a fantastic memory rather than trying to recreate it.
They'll release them together to inflate the numbers for the new game... then in a few months time it will be released separately. Classic business decisions. Classic Activision.
Looks good. Could be my first CoD since Black Ops 2 (providing MW remaster is included).
Gaming is more popular now though. Looking at market share of PS2 vs PS4 at this stage of the cycle would be interesting. I'd guess PS2 would have a bigger market share due to the reasons you gave but would be selling slower since less people bought consoles back then.
Haha loved getting that sweet Martyrdom kill.
It is strange she decided to focus so strongly on that.. his views go well beyond gender politics. Her rebuttal would have been far stronger if she responded to the main points he's making as they affect everyone in the tech industry, especially games developers, and their work life balance - rather than focussing on comments said at a different time. She is in such a strong position to challenge him, being his daughter working in the field, and decided to focus on the gender side of thin...
That guy would be a terrible boss/manager - absolutely no empathy for the long hours and hard work put in by developers.
Ah, I see...phew. Fair enough. Still very sceptical of that percentage though, I'd bet consensual sex orgasm rate is lower.
Do your own research rather than just believing some random on the internet.
Also, think of the rate of orgasm in consensual sex, that's probably lower than 87% when getting off is the goal!
Well, I have to respond then seeing as you're getting so many agrees...
Evidence for your 87%? I've seen far, far lower. Also, orgasm doesn't imply enjoyment, if you stimulate sensitive areas for long enough you will orgasm. Not all rapes are short violent ones.
I think you must be trolling with a comment so off-topic and lacking in evidence and logic.
Wow. The moment when you start to write a response and then delete it because you know there's no point...
I'll preface my comment with if Uncharted doesn't become Sony's best selling Sony published game for PS4 it will be a bit of a failure in terms of sales.
If we dissect what is said here, the caveats that are put in place reduce the games down to Sunset Overdrive, Screamride, Ori, Ryse probably a few others. I'd be surprised if a few weeks sales has surpassed the lifetime sales of these other games so we must be talking about selling rate here not total sales....
The PS4 and XbOne haven't sold to the casual market yet!!!?? Are you crazy? They released in 2013!
Casuals buy the console immediately so they can continue playing CoD and Fifa ad infinitum. These games are aimed at the casual crowd. That's why they don't change much, are easy to play, are great pick up and play fun and can be found next to every kids PS4 or Xbox One. CoD is the definitive casual game.
I wrote a review on here, gave it a 7.0 (kind of regret not going lower tbh because I found it lacking in a lot of ways).
I thought the game mechanics (controls and movement) were great, best of the series, but what they had you do with the mechanics was so tedious and uninspired I felt the game suffered for it. Little variety and repetition of missions are bad game design to me. The boss battles were poor compared to previous games also.
All that travel time...
When was this quote? Because people will have stripped a part all the data of the game in search for it and not found it. It's how the removed chapter 3 and cutscenes were discovered. Maybe it's only for people who have them both downloaded, rather than via disc. Maybe that would be possible. Most likely it was just cut.
I think that may have been the plan at some point but it was cut at a late stage (much like a lot of other content) leading to a hobbled together fin...
I honestly enjoyed this advert more than MGSV, no joke.
If you look into the numbers it might not be that impressive. Even the best selling boxed game for the week might not mean much if there was no other competition. But, I'm not bothered about the interpretation of numbers - I'm just happy that a SP experience can still bring in good sales figures.
Get rid of that 'open world is better' nonsense.
Quantum Break looks great, my kind of game (minus the live action cutscenes) but I wouldn't buy a console for it. I was a bit disappointed when I got a PS3 with cod4 and uncharted and completed them in two days. Both brilliant games, arguably better at the time than quantum break. Consoles are only worth it when there's multiple games you want to play for it.
