Except it's on the PC too. The PS4 didn't kill anything. The developers killed it themselves. The PC has a gigantic amount of gamers on it, yet even on the PC it is dropping to under 500 players? For a shooter game? This game would have died on Xbox the same way it's dieing on PC and PS4.
@Bobafret That's a tough one. I agree and disagree at the same time. Sometimes, being good isn't enough anymore simply because there are many other good games too. So being a good game isn't enough to stand out. But at the same time, being good or bad has nothing to do with it because now it's all about "marketing". It's not about actually BEING good or great, it's about how many people a company can market their products...
@rocketpanda EXACTLY I signed in just to say I agree with you. Finally, someone understands that being a good or great game doesn't equate to good sales all the time. Too many on this site like to say "if the game was good, it would get the sales". If that was true, games like Okami, Vagrant Story, Starhawk, etc would have gotten good sales because they were good games.
This has nothing to do with any sort of fanboyism ( which your comment implies). The problem is that this article is factually wrong. Sony has been pushing out games all year. The writer of this opinion piece took two games Sony put out that are f2p and tried to make a case with those 2 to say Sony doesn't put out enough non f2p games. Which again, is factually wrong.
@Kribwalker- That depends on whether or not Crash actually happens for the xb1. To be fair, this situation will be more like the "We Happy Few" and "Ark combat evolved" situations. Those were announced as xb1/pc only then went to the PS4 toward the end of their early access phases.
Educated guess is that it probably will come to the PS4 after all the early access stuff is done. That's how it was with both We Happy Few and Ark. Both were originally announced as XB/PC initially. Then as the early access phases for both were winding down, PS4 versions were announced. But this is only me guessing.
@Ares I'm sorry but Phoenix Up and FallenAngel1984 are both right. Most of us WANT Sega to make hardware again sure. But we can't let what we want cloud reality. And the reality is Sega doesn't have the power (financial strength) to compete in the hardware game anymore. That's why they left in the first place. The Genesis and Dreamcast were both profitable sure. However, The Sega Master system, Sega Game Gear, Sega 32X, ...
Demon Souls was the game changer, not Dark Souls. I'll keep the conspiracies to myself. But I have an idea why everyone likes to say Dark Souls is the "it" souls game rather than Demon Souls
Not everything is partisan. It's not even about having content on "one platform over another" If Microsoft themselves don't see any profit in it, they won't do it. If they think they'll profit off it, they'll pursue it, just like any business.
"The same one that is leaving 30 million out in the Cold . Cause 59.99 + tax × 30 million is still a nice chunk of change . " Ok, this is just wrong. I get what you're both trying to say, but it's still wrong. First, there is a BIG difference between leaving 60 million plus gamers over 30 million plus gamers. That's not even debatable. Second, of course Insomniac is going to "leave 30 million out in the c...
That's one way to look at it. But to me, it's not impressive at all. The 360 had a year head start in the states. And a year and a half head start in the rest of the world. Plus in the beginning, they did pay to have jpn support. They also had the price advantage for a vast majority of the generation.
Is this really the first even in post PS Mobile era? They have Fate/Grand Order out right now in Japan, which believe it or not is bigger than pokemon go over there.
Ah well, this was bound to happen at some point. I have all the good stuff they're giving already. But no complaints here. I realized the moment the service started that this could/would happen at times. I'll still grab Element4l and Don’t Die, Mr. Robot though. After all, they might be games I like once I try them.
If that policy is truly reversed, we'll see how that pans out in no later than 3 months. Because right now, I'm buying these books and I'm not seeing it. And as for the Disney making Marvel "retard" brands like X-men or FF, Disney IS that petty to push Marvel into doing that. But as I said, if these policies are reversed, the proof will be in the pudding soon enough. Because I look at characters like say, Inferno or Mosaic (especiall...
1. I agree and disagree at the same time. True, Marvel runs independently. But that doesn't mean Disney doesn't have oversight over them. 2. I personally think if that speculation was true, this whole thing would be a non issue and some of the X-men would have been in this game.
Just because they have multiple comics out now doesn't mean the X-men haven't been devalued. Over the years, Marvel has made a point to kill off the most popular X-men. I don't need this article to tell me facts I've seen over the years as a buyer of comics. The fact is devalued or not, the X-men brand is worth money. So yeah, they'll make new comics of it to keep the gravy train coming. But don't deluded yourself into thinking the...
All of this is because Disney is trying to do everything they can do devalue both the X-men and the Fantastic Four in order to make FOX give up the rights to those franchises. And it's not just video games, it's happening in all forms of media. In the comics, Fantastic Four has been canceled and the X-men characters are slowly getting killed off and no new mutant characters are being made. Right now, Marvel is trying to raise the stock of the Inhumans to fill the X-...
There's no "jumping over the point". I addressed exactly what you just said And no, I'm not kidding about the sequel. In theory, ANY game can have a sequel. The real issue here is whether or not it makes sense. The colossi served a purpose in the first game that can't really be sensibly undone with the way the first game ended. And given what you just stated, you're not asking for a sequel. What you're asking for is a spiritual successor.
How do you know Shadow of the Colossus is the exact same game from 2005? Did they show gameplay? And it's a remake, just like Ratchet and Clank was a remake. Edit- And have you even played Shadow of the Colossus? That ending doesn't leave much room for a sequel
I figured this would happen eventually. They're already getting Doom VFR and Skyrim VR, so why not complete the Bethesda VR set?
