Agent_00_Revan274d ago

Oh those are pretty ni......BLOODBORNE FIGURE!!!

UltraNova273d ago

Bloodborne and HZD will make some badass figurines!

fenome273d ago (Edited 273d ago )

I was wondering when they were going to start doing this. I remember when they got that huge new headquarters in silicon valley and someone did a video interview with Jack Tretton and he mentioned them having a 3d printing setup where they could make their own toys.

I'm all over the Bloodborne hunter and Kratos!!

SuperSonic91273d ago (Edited 273d ago )

The Hunter oozes with extreme bad assery just by standing there.

Its about tike Sony leverage yhe power of their own characters.

RommyReigns273d ago

*Pinky up* I don't need it, I don't need it, I don't need it, I don't need it, I definitely don't need it.......

I NEED IT!!!!!!!!!!!

.
*Off topic* - Hey Majin Vegeta, what did you think of the recent Vegeta transformation into an updated SSGSS (Blue) form? Some are calling the form 'Super Saiyan Ultra Blue' or 'Super Saiyan Royal Blue'. Also I heard that Vegeta might get another upgraded transformation in two weeks time (but take that info with a pinch of salt).

at least it's not a DLC paywall this time and just legit figures.
also bring me aloy sony!

IamTylerDurden1274d ago

Only $9.99 as well. Preorders are available through Gamestop atm and there IS a Kratos figure.

porkChop274d ago (Edited 274d ago )

If you're going to get the figures anyway, then how is it somehow worse for the figure to interact with your game? These figures are pretty sweet, but I just don't understand how more functionality for nearly the same price is a bad thing? Most Amiibos in Canada are only $12-$15, so they'd be cheaper than that in the US.

letsa_go274d ago (Edited 274d ago )

Because that "functionality" is really things that used to be included in the game for free, but are now blocked off by $12-15 DLC per character. Games like Skylanders and Lego Dimensions could cost upwards to $1000 to buy all that is needed to fully enjoy the game. Super Mario Odyssey has things you can only do when you use amiibos. Luckily there are apps now that you can use to spoof these rfid tags, but still it is a pain, especially for lego dimensions. Mix that in with these companies creating artificial scarcity for certain characters, then it costs you wayyyy more money to obtain them, plus the time and energy trying to track them down. It really is a shitty thing that isn't needed in the gaming industry.

porkChop274d ago (Edited 274d ago )

You're right. They mostly are things that used to be included for free. But most games don't offer those unlockable at all.

So I ask again: One game offers you no unlockables at all, with a figurine that does nothing. Another game also offers no unlockables, but has a figurine that *does* give you unlockables.

How is the first situation better than the second? How is it better to get less for your money? I just don't understand the thinking here. Either way those things probably aren't going to be included in the game anyway, they'd just be microtransactions.

Gameseeker_Frampt273d ago

@ porkChop

"How is it better to get less for your money?" You answered your own question about amiibos. How is it better for people who buy Metroid:Samus Returns to get less for their money? How is it better for people who buy Twilight Princess HD to get less for their money? Splatoon? Every amiibo compatible game has content on the disc locked out for people who don't purchase amiibo. That isn't fair. You're looking at it as adding value to the amiibo when you should be looking at what it takes away from everyone that buys the game.

porkChop273d ago

"you should be looking at what it takes away from everyone that buys the game."

Right. Except the vast majority of games these days don't feature these types of unlockable anymore. If Amiibos didn't exist, there's a very good chance that the accompanying content wouldn't either.

So nothing is being taken away, things are being added. Now I'll agree that the content shouldn't be on the disc or game card. But with NFC only holding keys or text, I don't know how else they'd handle it.

Neonridr273d ago

that's crap.. Here's a figurine that is $10 to sit on your shelf. Or here is a figurine for $10 that unlocks new costumes or other things.

But somehow the useless figurine has more value? Man, I must be missing something here.

Mario Odyssey has nothing of true value with their amiibos, completely optional. Game is still completed without them.

yomfweeee273d ago

That's a bunch of bull letsa_go. The base Skylander games and base Lego Dimension game is certainly a full fledged game without buying anything extra. Lego Dimensions base game has way more content than the regular Lego games they release. So, they aren't screwing you. The extra stuff, why shouldn't you pay for it.

IamTylerDurden1273d ago

I'd rather have just the figure for a few bucks less than the figure and some gimmicky dlc for more.

FallenAngel1984274d ago

I can’t believe the nameless Hunter of all people got in the first wave over more iconic PlayStation mascots or characters heavily associated with the brand

Goldby274d ago

Blood borne is pretty iconic for PlayStation now.

Barneyco273d ago

That's the one I ordered.

DrumBeat273d ago

He's honestly the only one I'd buy.

fenome273d ago

I get what you're saying but you've gotta admit it looks badass, I'm definitely getting it.
