Sounds interesting, Cant wait for The reveal! :)

I'm loving the whole social thing. FYI, I'm not one of those guys who hated the social aspects of any console. I always felt social is the future. One day EVERYTHING will be connected.

Mikelarry3692d ago (Edited 3692d ago )

don't mind social just as long as its not shoehorned into the experience. also why cant we have both types of game play like what destiny is doing as sometimes i just want to game alone without needing to have a couple of friends join my party just to play or enjoy my game

JoGam3692d ago (Edited 3692d ago )

@ Mikelarry...Agreed and we can have both gameplay like Destiny. Social doesn't have to mean always connected 24 hours a day however can be connected at will. Like if you want to be connect all day then fine however options to disconnect.

Call me old school but I hate this social/always connected BS...are you so willing are to abandon actual person to person social interaction by imprisoning yourselves in the web via a screen?

Dont get me wrong if its your kind of thing go right ahead but I dont have to like or participate in the death of Single player and Real social interaction.

JoGam3691d ago

Well keep in mind everything connected doesn't have to mean always connected.

as long as it's not always online i'm good with online and social features being the focus. if not then meh, no reason for games to require a constant connection, unless it's a mulitplayer oriented game like Titan Fall/Battlefield/etc.

kaiserfranz3692d ago

Well yes, it's likely that it would be a multiplayer oriented game if it's always online.

What's so wrong with a constant connection required for online? It's not like you can play it without it.

Edit: @blue_cheese

papashango3692d ago

social oriented usually means always online....

XiSasukeUchiha3692d ago

Me and Nee-san are excited for this!

kaiserfranz3692d ago

Most likely. Although, probably more like Destiny than your usual MMORPG

Activemessiah3692d ago

aaand just like that you lost me.

WeAreLegion3692d ago

Linchpin, you have to get out there and meet new people at some point. Not all games with social aspects are evil.

Dante813692d ago

To meet new people you have to get out of your house first. This isn't what I consider "meeting" new people.

Activemessiah3692d ago

Gaming is a break from socialising since my job is about that... so I need time away from people.

Activemessiah3692d ago

BTW, Demon Hunter are awesome \m/

AngelicIceDiamond3692d ago

For focusing on having online social aspects?

If you don't like that kind of thing then that's fine. But you unfairly passing on a game we know nothing about.

I'd say wait till E3 to see what we're dealing first at the very least.

-Foxtrot3692d ago (Edited 3692d ago )

It's not that but with WatchDogs, The Crew, Destiny, H1Z1, Fable Legends, Deep Down etc all focusing on social and online features it just feels like it will end up becoming a trend where single player games or even multiplayer games with single player campaigns will have this whole social aspect shoved down our throat in the single player campaign.

Then you have the fact this new approach will most likely come with Microtranscations and it will end up getting bigger, making more devs take part in it.

Why are you so afraid of "online" and "multiplayer"? Open your mind! ;)
