I really doubt it. To be honest, the way I see them re announcing this game isn't on a big stage like they did last time. I can see it being done through their blog in a slower part of the year. Where they can put up dev diaries and what not to convince others it is actually coming.

It might have something to do with the fact it hardly sold on consoles. It is fairly enough. Might make the game better anyway being focused on a platform

Why? The fact they can be easily upgraded means less is more useful and more powerful for them. AS long as Microsoft don't offer crazy storage options Sony should not really bother. For them it is a waste of money for not much gain (similarly for Microsoft who offer external hard drive support)

I would go as far and say appropriate "games" are, sort of, already in the classroom. Granted, being a primary school teacher, my scope is limited to what I know but games are in most, if not all, lessons.

The problem schools have is justifying spending money on something that can be done far better and more useful in a practical sense. I use more appropriate games in my lessons to support learning a topic. But these video games never, and should never, take centre ...

If Sony is adamant about making another The Last of Us, I would rather they have separate self contained stories with each instalment.

VR will not get the casual on board. They are more likely going to get on board with things like PS Now. Something that doesn't require extra hardware; can be cancelled at any time; and, hopefully, will be fairly inexpensive in the short run.

It is those type of things that will get the "casual consumer" not some exciting bit of hardware.

I don't think they will either. With how they are positioning Now/content streaming in general on mobile devices I just don't see them having another go with this type of devices. Everything they are doing is pointing away from this

Those games cost a great deal of time and money and for what? Lets be honest. Vita software sales are and have never been great.

"It could have so many games not possible on 3ds"

Which is actually the main issue why this thing flopped. It is too expensive with a lot of risk to make those games.

We talk about mobile gaming taking over this side of the business but that is only part of the problem. Increasing costs of development is t...

It is a good move. Sony should have killed it years ago. With how people access mobile games, streaming big games moving to phones and streaming content to practically anything an expensive dedicated hardware makes no sense for consumers nor developers. I loved games like Gravity Rush and LBP Vita (latter being the best LBP to date) but as a product I can't see the appeal of it. I played the indie games from time to time but most of these games are going cross buy because the PS4 has done...

Of course. The forza brand is a yearly franchise

Not to sound unfair but tough as that is the risk with Kickstarter. It isn't some contractual agreement. It is an investment on an idea. Investing in, of things, a racing sim for a console that struggles to sell any content outside of the Nintendo branded stuff, let alone itself, is risky as hell. People need to be less cavalier with their money.

To be frank a Vita price cut is unlikely to change its situation. Their best bet is to get as much profit as possible from the few sales they already get. They could possibly cut the memory card price to get current users to buy more of them (personally I feel that is the best for the Vita situation) but I don't think a drastic price cut is going to be best for Sony

Edit: The only Vita "price cut" I can see happening is it being included into a PS4 bundle

In the same way the DS line was never officially announced as a successor to the Gameboy line as it was seen as a "third pillar" for Nintendo. Same goes for this new system. Essentially it will be a new console (either home/handheld/both) but it will take over one if not both current Nintendo product lines

Their hopes for a new console at E3 might be a little optimistic since Nintendo said they will talk about the NX in 2016

Far Cry 2 was pretty bad when you think about it. Weapons rusted way to quickly which made shooting not fun, the malaria mechanic was just a pain and, again, made the game not fun, is was glitchy as hell (I had to uninstall a patch to glitch through a door to complete the game as it wouldn't let me in the room to get the next mission), the campaign wasn't that good (though this hasn't really improved in many games).

It did a lot of good (the fire mechanic was amaz...

Like others, that had a similar goal, before it. This is going to flop.

To be honest I can see Sony introducing different skus before a price drop. It still sells very well. I can see them putting in a larger hard drive and then drop that price later

You know what it is okay to borrow elements from other games if it makes their game better. Complaining about a rope launcher being similar to the one seen in Arkham City or the swappable characters being seen in other games before isn't really an issue at all. These types of things are a positive thing to see as it shows Ubisoft are trying to expand and improve on the series. That is as long as it works

This doesn't mean I am excited for the next AC. I am not excited...

I doubt it is because they will sell it as DLC. I just don't see it. The thing they will sell as DLC is more worlds (i.e. maps).

The reasons why there is no space battles is because they are creating their battlefront game exactly the same way they have created battlefield in the past. They creating what they know (which I think has something to do with getting it out quickly). The excuse they give is a load of rubbish since they have created games, in the past, where th...

Well we will see it as soon as next year. They have already said more details will be shown in 2016

edit @below: But it will matter because we will know what Nintendo thinks the future is.
