I agree. Out of all the games that Nintendo would release this is the one game that needed multiplayer (I am a single player guy myself but some games suit multiplayer better)
It needed to be that way. The Vita just doesn't sell itself nor software that appears on it. Sony has made it pretty clear it is time to move away from it (Vita TV, remote play on phones....) and I agree with that philosophy. It is the risk of supporting unpopular platforms (hell I own one so I would know)
Probably since VR is extremely difficult to sell on a stage.
@Christopher Not necessarily. We have seen this all the time with timed exclusive games (especially with the rise of indie games). The only time when a developer can't talk about the end of the timed exclusive is when marketing deals are made. This is not one of those occasions. This is purely timed exclusive content rights (stupid as they are)
"The reason PS4 is outselling XB1 to the majority of average gamers is about the strength of the PlayStation brand." That is utter rubbish. The Xbox brand has a strong brand presence (it was basically the only thing competitive E sports used and adverts were all over the place). Especially in the US and the UK. Playstation was non existent in those regions in the last generation. But this time around it is the other way round (US less so but the Xbox had some presen...
I disagree with Nintendo. They are not competing because they have struggled to keep up with modern concepts in the home console market. They need to start playing catch up and start emulating Sony and Microsoft. Competition is only their if you have a desirable product or willing to make major changes to make your product desirable (something Nintendo has been reluctant to do)
Sort of but sort of not. I like what they have introduce and it is good to see Microsoft making strides in areas others don't dare to go but they still didn't address their main issue of why their competitor is selling more than them and why so many old consumers have jumped ship. Maybe they can't and this is them trying to move past it by introducing desirable features others do not offer but it will always hold them back.
"Anyone who thinks $149 isn't fair for this is probably jobless and living in their mothers basement." Or we just see the illogical nature of the premium price model. Controllers are overly expensive as it is. 149 is not reasonable as the only reason why it is this expensive is to carry that premium market image (it doesn't matter if it is made out of metal or comes with special software as mass production negates the expense). It is like the Apple Watch. It...
Sony should not go in full guns blazing and offer a similar system. If they are going to do it they need to do it right. Same applies to Microsoft. The problem Steam has with early access is they allow any old rubbish to appear and for games to be dropped mid development. I am anxious to see how Microsoft manages it as any company wishing to do this needs to be careful and do it right. Early access is a mess.
Possibly but the logic is flawed. BC would never do that without them addressing the real reason why more people have picked up a PS4 over an Xbox One. I am glad they have done it as it will force Sony's hand to emulate it in some way but the marketing point will not work without address their fundamental problem they have with the One (which is performance discrepancies between the two systems)
I thought it looked incredibly. Much better than I thought it would be (though the way these games are presented are hectic mayhem but that never turely materializes in real life) However, I still think the exclusion of space battles will be sorely missed in this game. Just imagine all that but you could have flown into space.
I quite like these small titles from big publishers. Ubisoft seemed to be the only ones doing it last year. It is nice to see EA make a serious attempt with these types of games
Why the premium price? Sell the base slightly more expensive than the current model as consumers are more likely to swap parts in and out (as that will also cost a bit of money). It could have sold loads that way. It is making itself an exclusive item but those people who will spend that much on a controller no doubt have their own ideal, possibly third party, controllers.
It needed to be that though. I personally thought their lasts E3 conference to be abysmal since they didn't show anything with their mega bomb shell being mismanaged and misrepresented. This was a lot better. It was clear, it showed what they needed to show and their bomb shell was clear and easy to understand. The only thing they didn't address was the elephant in the room but they have given consumers something to actually think about
Well it will be publisher driven. It was fairly obvious by the announced games how the service will run. Mass effect 1, Rainbow Six Vegas 1 and 2..... very old games. The remasters that do very well are collections or fairly recentish games that bridge the gap between old and new systems (for example remember this game you bought two years ago well here it is but prettier). There is room for both and there will be since remasters sell and make a ton of money
PS Now isn't for backward compatibility. Sony has expressed this quite often. PS Now is to push gaming without the need for a console. It is the Netflix style model. It is to entice the consumer who doesn't really want to spend £300+ on a system to just play games. It is for consumers to drop in and out when ever they feel like it. It is the evolution of consumer gaming. BC doesn't have the same appeal since a further £300+ in advance is needed for it to work. BC is for ...
If they are I hope it isn't focused on Franklin as he was the worse out of the three if not a poorly thought out character in general. To be honest if they are going to do story dlc they should do something similar to TBGT. That was by far the best storyline that has come out of the modern GTAs. I would like to see new characters
I personally do not like this trend. E3 is becoming that event where logos/CGI trailers are just thrown up for the sake of filling time. I would prefer everyone to show when they are ready. Look at The Division. It was a long time ago when that was first shown. My interest has gone
No but they need to present/reveal games on a big stage. They get the most coverage. If they don't the VR stuff will not get the same coverage.
That isn't the point nor the angle for this type of service. The point is too sell this service as an alternative to buying a console (buy a month when ever you want/when something worth playing comes along or rent a game every so often) The big challenge is how they will sell it. Bundling controllers with future TV sets will work but they also need to make a big TV advert push. Sell it as a console alternative but the entry price is the controller not a fully fledged sys...
