Bloodborne: A System-Selling Exclusive?

It could be one of the best games available on PlayStation 4, but is that enough to prompt a hefty sales spike? Does the game have enough pull?

Any exclusive game can be a system seller, it's only a matter of how many people will be motivated to buy that console for any particular game.

In other words, any exclusive game will likely help sell a console to somebody. It's just a question of how many any particular game will help sell. We won't know until the game is released and we see how much of a boost PS4 sales receive.

I can see this selling SOME systems, but nothing major. Obviously the Xbone has Dark Souls fans. And some will buy a PS4 so they can play this game. As will some who just haven't jumped into next get yet.

However, I don't expect to see it increase numbers like God of War, Gran Turismo, or Uncharted would. But hey, who knows.

I see this selling more bundles in japan than anywhere else, but this will easily add to the line up of great games. Remember Demin's Souls came first and shook the gaming world. DARK SOULS got more people in. Now Sony is sort of roping those fans back with this exclusive, for one I think look pretty epic.

I think it will move consoles in Japan, which is very important.

I see a ridiculous amount of comments saying waiting for bloodborne to get a ps4 so i think it will sell systems.

A man thinks so. There's been significant press for it and a lot of people have said they're waiting. Sony would be wise to continue its bundling trend come February.

Every exclusive has the potential to be a system seller to someone.

Yeah, that's what I thought as well. If a certain game is really interesting to you and it's only on one particular platform then that game might contribute to you buying that system. Even pretty mediocre games are likely system sellers to somebody.

The only question is how many consoles will a particular game help sell.

It's one of my most anticipated ps4 games. That and mgs5 and FF15.
Those three games alone will make 2015 one of the best years in gaming in recent years. Not to mention Zelda U and halo 5.

Our poor wallets won't know what hit them :(

it won't be a major system seller, luckily the PS4 does not seem to need one

It can always sell faster, right? Besides every new game brings in a new group of people to the system. Right now, that hardcore Souls player is not there yet. They're probably still on their PS3's or X360's spilling blood in Dark Souls 3.

I think it will be a huge system seller and bringing a lot of people to the genre. Also just imagine the marketing if its done well
