Thoughts...on a Saturday morning.

haha sorry this piece lost me. No GOW is not 'delayed' , nor even in 'thoughts',

DigitalRaptor2622d ago

God of War was never officially announced for 2017.

Stupid article.

Liqu1d2622d ago

Why did you approve it then?

DigitalRaptor2621d ago (Edited 2621d ago )

Because I approved it before I read it, and then forgot to cancel.


Silly I know.

Becuzisaid2621d ago

This is why this website sucks

gbsrnctaln2621d ago

Lol "approved it before I read it"....

Why are you approving/disapproving articals again??? Jesus

KwietStorm_BLM2622d ago

Why do people always say that because a game was not given a public release date, that it means it wasn't delayed?

Sam Fisher2622d ago

Bc delayed means after a confirmation on a date and cannot be completed on specific day specified

KwietStorm_BLM2622d ago

Sam Fisher, every single studio on the planet has an internal shipping date regardless of whether we know it or not. They obviously need to complete projects within a time frame, for both financial and work related reasons. If they cannot complete it within their own projections, then yes, they will delay it. You can't really think they don't have a date in mind LONG before they announce it to us? So yes, what you said is true, but it isn't reliant on the public knowing the date, is my point.

Jaqen_Hghar2621d ago

why do people assume a release date then say a game was delayed because their imagined expected arrival date wasn't accurate? A man doesn't count it as delayed until it has a confirmed date that is pushed back.

That would be call development hell sir

Worst article I've seen this week

_-EDMIX-_2621d ago

Dear God this goes up there with one of the worst articles I've seen in a long time.

It was never official release date of God of.

The actual teams that are actually making those rereleases are actually not the same teams working on major game series we are not even talking about the same process....that is unless the author of this article is dumb enough to believe that blue point games is actually naughty dog....

Aenea2621d ago

And are the PS2 titles that are made available for PS4 even done by a company like Bluepoint??

_-EDMIX-_2621d ago

Aenea- highly unlikely.

Port or transfer teams like that only really do those type of remasters or collections etc, the PS2 to PS4 stuff I feel might be done by a team of like 5 or 6 people, maybe...

I went to collage with someone that ended up working for Aspyr for a period of time and that team is legit made up of 10 people. Porting or transferring a game can take as long as 5 months or as short as 1 week, legit. It just matters if its based on a remaster, straight port, Mac to PC, PC to Mac, PC to console etc. From what I'm seeing from the PS2 games on PS4, its not like a remaster, so I don't even think a port team like Bluepoint would really work on those.

Aenea2619d ago

Yeah, they just run the thing thru an emulator, tweak some settings so it looks nice, etc. The most work is actually adding the trophies and that probably is being done in the same way like those old school 'cheat' cartridges worked by analysing the in-memory data of the game to see what changes and what they can hook into to make trophies pop. Doesn't need a whole team of people, doesn't even have to be people who can program if the application they are using for this is well written...

This is one of the dumbest articles I've ever read... Christ

kingarthur47472621d ago

This is one of the worst comments I've ever read. Using the Lord Jesus Christ's name in an evil way because you don't like an article?! Now that is dumb. You should repent and ask for forgiveness for your own sake and His holy name.

LordofYogurt2621d ago

.....................Your God likes it up the ass.

Whoops, sorry...*Ass

mixelon2621d ago

Pretty sure any worthwhile God should have more pressing matters to attend to than n4g posts. XD

toddybad2621d ago

There is no God. None. You've wasted your life believing in a myth.

DarXyde2621d ago

You know, we don't all believe in that stuff.

And, if you think about it, coming down on Dominican-Glory because they used "Christ" in an "evil way" is a form of language policing.


.... but if you're not from America, carry on.

God of War and all major Sony releases almost always launch before E3 and never after. It's been this way for 3 console generations. Who here actually thought Sony would roll out gow in the fall around everything else?

KwietStorm_BLM2622d ago

3 generations? You mean with a portion of the PS3's lifespan, their 3rd generation. And even with that, Gran Turismo, Uncharted, LittleBigPlanet, Demon's Souls, etc. all release later in the year. It wasn't until the later years where we started to see the delays.

This article gave me diabetes

Well from the sound of it the writer has high blood pressure!? He need to manage his salt intake better.
