There are a lot more issues than what you're talking about.
In short: It's about the new gaming streaming service "Dive In". It will be using G cluster technology and you will be able to stream Square Enix games. The service will launch on October 9th and the games will become playable.
Sony doesn't own them. I see no reason why they have no limit their games to on console. I can see your frustration with the Tomb Raider issue but the other complaints aren't as reasonable. You shouldn't be mad just because a game goes to another platform.
It's not $60.
So you love your WiiU and can hardly wait for the next Zelda to drop next year? You feel as if you desperately need to play the next Zelda now? You said you agree with him and that's what he is saying on twitter. This article didn't quote all of his tweets.
Guys, he was just joking. Here are his following tweets. "I love the Wii U, I was just making a joke about how I kinda finished the games I'm interested in. I need zelda." "I'm basically just whining that the new Zelda isn't out yet. I need it bad" It isn't what this article is making it out to be.
Eh, I'll bite. What's really happening?
I don't think there has been any official announcements about it going to the west. The first game was never localized though.
It's amazing. Youkai Watch is a success story. 2 million units in that time frame is some most Japanese developers can only dream of. It has pacing similar to many of Nintendo's big first party games. Imagine what 3DS numbers will look like when the Pokémon remakes come out later this year.
"Yes, the deal has a duration. I didn't buy it. I don't own the franchise." From the article.
I understand what you mean when you say that Sony doesn't have the luxury to be able to churn out Vita games continuously. You still have to understand that it's consistency that sells hardware. If you give up after the first try, the consumers will never buy it. This is what Sony did. They made some great games at launch, saw the sales, and they threw their hands in the air as they grabbed their first part studios and went home. In the end, it's ...
@Starcatcher Yes, you will see a rise in Vita sales. But as I said before, JRPGS only go so far in the west. As of now, the Vita is niche in places like America and Europe. It sells well with a certain group but it lacks the variety to appeal to people outside this one group.
"See if Western gamers cared for the Vita as much as the Japanese there would be more support for it from Sony." The Vita sells in Japan because SCEJ actually supports it. The same is impossible to say for SCEA and SCEE who refuse to give it any 1st party support. The company is supposed to provide the software that makes the players want to buy their hardware. If the company waits until players start buying hardware, sales will never pick up. This ...
Okay, but you are forgetting that these franchises are continuing on the PS4. As of now, there aren't any decent PS4 emulators so he has to get a PS4 to play the next Uncharted, a God of War sequel, or any sequel to any of the other PlayStation exclusive games he likes. Checkmate!
I never understand all of this bickering. PC may have exclusives too, but it doesn't have the exclusives that he prefers. He gave a list of specific properties that are only found on his platform of choice. I assume these games are why he chose the platform of his choice. That's the problem with articles like these. People can't seem to grasp that other people aren't always going to enjoy the same things that they do.
What? Nobody just wants to use your characters; that not how licensing deal work. You make it sound like they're doing it for free and out of the goodness of their hearts. Property owners usually offer a sum of money and pay for the development of the project and that's an offer any smart third party would not turn down. They're already doing this with their franchises. Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem and Hyrule Warriors are both examples of Nintendo lice...
Mobile games are mobile. They give you entertainment when you aren't at home sitting in front of a TV and that's one of the biggest draws. You can play them anywhere.
Yeah, you will start to see PS4 sales pick up as more games start to release. I'm not saying it will start flying off the shelves though. It's not like the west where people rush out to buy a console and patiently wait for promised support. In order to sell, you need to have something out that makes people want to buy it.
It didn't catch on like people thought it would. I have a PS4 at home but I'm always out so my 3DS and Vita get more use. I'm more of an one the go type of person. Most of the people I know are the same way. The PS4 also lacks games that appeal to me. When I do play a console, it's my WiiU.
It doesn't matter if it's a console seller or not. That has nothing to do with the article. Splatoon is a new IP, something people keep claiming Nintendo hasn't made in years. The article actually proves that wrong. Maybe you should take the time to actually read it, huh?
