From PlayStation Universe: "According to a listing on the Korean Ratings Board, PUBG has been listed for a PS4 release."
We know it's coming to PS4, just a matter of time.
Without a strong player count this game is gonna die on PS4… So, IMO, the smartest thing PUBG corp could do is…give a deep, DEEP discount to Sony, so that Sony can launch the game directly into PS+ (get that player count up dramatically)
Remember when square Enix in their infinite wisdom make Tom raider a timed exclusive? It bombed on PS4. You An be your bottom dollar that the same things going to happen.
So it's coming to ps4 at a time where there'll be a lot more B.R. options that are A lot better.
Drik, If your definition of 'bombed" is to to sell even more units(ps4) than on the platform it was exclusivity released then you need to do fact checking asap. As for PUGB on Ps4, its kinda too late, unless its free. Blackout seems to be the next big performer along with Fortinite.
Deep discount? $20 is too expensive? Doesn't matter, PS4 gamers have made it very apparent that they don't care about PUBG.
GUTZANDWHATEVERELSE You really think you speak for ps4 owners? You are one person and you only speak for yourself. I bet that there are a lot of ps4 owners(like me) who don't GiveaS about what you think. You opinion is relevant only to you, so stfu. Thanks
Agreed - PS+ would make the game effectively free and might kick start the PS4 community. While i don't personally hold a grudge, i wonder if Sony would not even offer them that option given their allegiance to MS. Kinda mafioso-ish but some at Sony may see it as making an example of them.
@dirkdady Tomb raider actually sold better on the PS4 than Xbox 1 if that's what you mean. I'm just saying it did better. Not a console favor comment.
@GnPC Yes...too expensive...and if it comes out during the next 3 months, it will get swallowed up by other releases. All sorts of other options - and still doesn't look very stable (although far better than early release).
PS+ is the only thing that'll save this game, tbh.
@ultranova, I think Drik meant it bomb in regards to how much better sales could have been on the PS4 if it wasnt timed exclusive to the Xbox. By the time Tomb Raider was released on the PS4, most PS4 players have forgotten about it or got over it. Again, a lot of PS4 owner waited until the game was either in the bargain bin or on sale to purchase the game. Tomb Raider, didnt bomb by any means. However, it could have done a lot better.
@GUTZnPAPERCUTZ - "Deep discount? $20 is too expensive?" - You have no clue what I'm talking about... Sony has to play 3rd party publishers to get games in PS+…PUBG can only survive on PS4 if a decent player count is maintained…If PUBG were to launch in PS+, the game would have a chance to start with a decent player count… BUT Sony is not going to pay top dollar to get the game in PS+…but if PUBG Corp gave Sony a discount to launch the game in PS+…then Sony would market the game being in PS+ & PUBG Corp would start with a decent player count.
@crazyCoconuts " i wonder if Sony would not even offer them that option given their allegiance to MS" - I hear you, but thats where the DEEP discount from PUBG Corp would come in…IF you add a deep discount for Sony PLUS the fact that Sony could market this game as a way of getting more subscribers into PS+, maybe its a deal Sony could be interested in
Really dude? Are you doubting this game will sell millions on ps4?You do realize outside n4g, PlayStation fans think differently, right? It will sell. Assuming it doesn't run like trash.
There's gonna be a shortage of players for this game on PS4? Sounds strange considering that every comment seems to say that PS4 has the higher install base. Maybe they should add crossplay to boost this player count so it won't die. Would be better than a price cut.
I don't follow PUBG closely but is it on a slow decline now? Fortnite is the king now and everything is jumping in this mode. Dying Light, CoD, indie games and more. CoD one looks like it will have a good following. Fornite being on literally everything released within the last 5-6 years can't beat likely.
@ dirkdady According to vgchartz (if you got a better source, I'll bite): Rise of the Tomb Raider Xbox One = 1.58m PS4 = 1.94m with an 11 month delay. To me it just seems that in this case the timed exlusive deal was just a bit giant waste of time and money.
Blackout looks good and it's my first cod game in years. Pubg is different if your a shroud fan he explains its pretty well the gun play in pubg is really good but that's the only thing they got. I'm hoping cod scares them enough to realize time to step it up.
It's a good idea. You won't shift people from other multiplayer games with a huge established player base
@uptownsoul "Without a strong player count this game is gonna die on PS4…" It´s gonna be very interesting to see if PS4 owners REALLY don´t care about PUBG as much as fanboys wants to believe.
yep.. it's garbage until they can get their hands on it.. then slowly the tides turn and the player count rises ;)
@Neonrider You just described every fanbase thats ever existed.
^^Exactly. But he ONLY craps on the PS4 fanboys.
@Obscure_Observer "It´s gonna be very interesting to see if PS4 owners REALLY don´t care about PUBG as much as fanboys wants to believe." - Fanboy or not, ports of games don't tend to fare so well when so much time has lapsed. And when it comes to games like PUBG (and other games that revolve around an active player base), the lack of said player base could spell disaster. @Neonridr & @Silly gameAr - Hellblade was the perfect example to me…That game went from "Walking Sim" to "interesting game" to "one of the best games of the gen" (based almost entirely on the game & dev's relationship to a particular fanbase's platform)
I think it'll do reasonably well. But I do think some of the hype has died down for the game, and obviously, Fortnite got a huge foothold right now which could make it hard to get those players since PUBG isn't free.
Nope the game is complete garbage but in all fairness I think fortnite is a hot steaming piece of casual garbage.
It's not a title I'm buying just better higher quality titles coming out that I would rather invest in
I doubt anyone even cares much. We have Call of duty Black Ops 2 that’s about to come out.
4.. not 2
Too little too late PUBG. It’ll go the rout of Lawbreakers at this point. They should have cleaned up their game already and pulled it out of its beta state. Cannot foresee it being too successful on the PS4, especially when Blackout and Firestorm are just around the corner. And it wouldn’t surprise me if Red Dead had its own variation of a BR.
NO Kiddin. But I feel it might be too little too late with COD BO Blackout coming next month.
That and Fornite has already filled the gap, along with H1Z1, for the battle royal style and for the low low price of FREE...
Ya two of the three are going to get smashed.
Isn't this big xbox console exclusive that green fanatics were bragging about. Noice, PS4 is getting another game to it's already huge library of games and that is always a good news for us PS4 owners.
You fanboye are some of the worse people ever in these comment sections. You make sony a lot of money and that where it ends. They don't know or care about what you think.
Sony doesn't know or care about what we think? Really? So please answer this... do you agree that microsoft knows or cares about what you think? Cause from what most people see, we know for damn sure they don't. What's your take?
And MS fanboys are angels? The boys in green have gloated about PUBG for the last year or so, comes full circle and now Sony fans are the worst? Cry me a river mate.
"They don't know or care about what you think." But you care enough to reply to me and it more than enough for me . :*
@Zack You are right THIS gen xbox messed up big time because they didn't listen, but what i said still stands. @Xx-idiot-xx What???????
PS4 is the reigning champion so...
Supersonic91 The Reigning champ would be Wii because it won the last generation. This generation is not over but over because of the numbers and when the nextgeneration comes the ps4 would be the reigning champ because it won this gen.
@DEEHULK88 Well that's karma for you many xbox fanboys went on and on about the exclusivity of PUBG only to get blindsided by Fortnite. There is a pattern here of developers choosing exclusivity with MS only to see their games lose popularity Titanfall, TR, and now PUBG I can guarantee that all of these games would have done better without the exclusivity deals they made with MS. As for worst fanboys well that is debatable they all have their moments go back and read those articles written about PUBG and see the comment section, and tell me with a straight face that Sony fans are worst.
Deehulk Thanks for your paid beta testing. But Pubg still looks bad
it was never a console exclusive. Just one of those console first games. You had to figure the game would come over eventually. Only way MS would have prevented that would have been to buy the company outright.
"it was never a console exclusive. Just one of those console first games." Yeah i know that, i was just poking green fanatics that were calling this game a xbox exclusive and celebrated it on the chart articles as it was MS property and now, after PUBG releases on the PS4, all those fanatics will suddenly stop doing that.
@Legatus - yes but on the other hand you will have a bunch of people who previously said the game sucked and nobody wants to play it suddenly finding themselves playing it and enjoying it. It will be a little ironic I guess.
Don't want !
Me neither. If it plays anything like on Xbox I'm good thanks.
Does anyone care at this point? There are better options COD Blackout being one of them in November. Game barely runs on the X they should be ashamed for not focusing on optimizing it on one system before trying to cash grab on another
we shall see I guess. It will be interesting if suddenly many, many people are playing it on PS4. Everyone loves to hate on the game (mostly because they don't have access to it), so now that it's there, we will see what the sales dictate.
Only Switch owners will never play it.
Erm, no. Not everyone. The comments you see on N4G and social media in general are a small minority. So no, it wouldn't be "interesting" or even surprising if lots of PS4 players are playing it.
@Lime123 - Switch only owners you mean. Thankfully I play this game on my gaming PC, so I don't need to worry about playing it anywhere else. But obviously I could have played it on my PS4 if I had chose to. Technically if mobile can play their own version of the game, then no reason why they couldn't port that to the Switch if they really, really wanted to. That being said, I would probably rather the didn't.
Been saying that for a long time brother. Now all of a sudden it will get some love I'm sure. It was amazing watching people flip to loving the suddenly cartoony looking fortnite as opposed to something with the "gritty realism" LOL of a game like PUBG. Lime1231h ago Only Switch owners will never play it. *looks in confusion at the clown's comment* Wait, I'm a Switch owner, and I play PUBG quite often. Now, how the hell did I manage to do that? Oh wait, you ASSumed that everybody was a sad little fanboy/cult member like yourself. LMAO Nah bro, some of us actually like games more than that. And have NO problems picking up another controller or playing on another device. Not to mention that Nintendo Switch owners could have been playing it well before even a lot of these ps4 loyalists. Who we'll almost assuredly suddenly see more of raring to go & give it a chance once it hits their favorite little toy. Quite a few that I know actually have actually been using the PC for years to get their third-party fixes. And I mean real PC's and not the ones that magically appear whenever a game is on MS platforms and nothing else So yeah, they could be (or have been) playing it without ever even having to touch either of the competitors controllers if they saw fit. I personally have been playing & enjoying it on the Xbox One X myself. Just because you seem to have proven to be a straight-up booty licking loyalist doesn't mean that we all are limey boy.
Too little, too late
Lol no one cares about this trash anymore.
ok, i guess
Should be free to play, its not worth what I paid.
we'll see how the haters treat it when its on ps4. suddenly perspectives change. just watch...
We'll see how the green fanatics treat it now when it's also on the PS4. Suddenly perspectives change, last year it was huge xbox console exclusive that will turn the tide and it was celebrated on any gaming charts as it was MS owned property, but now i think things will change, just watch...
https://www.microsoft.com/e... According to MS own site, which I was told is inaccurate by a fanboy, Xbox gamers have moved on as well. Not even a top 50 played game. Ooops, sorry. Top 49. It will have people playing it on PS4 though. I have a feeling though that COD and Battlefield will still a lot of these games thunder. They will be less glitches and will look a lot better as well. PUBG really should be free though but that's just my opinion. That's the selling point of all the others as well. They are FREE! We shall see. Remember this is MS's own website so don't get mad at me lol.
Not if it comes out after BO4. Then it's like why bother. They really screwed up there.
Or not. I hope the developers have received a lot of money from Microsoft and XBO users because they won't have anything from me. But, everything sells well on PS4. PS users buy the games instead of waiting for them to go free on "Game Pass". This will not be the exception.
Oh the irony Fortnite came out of nowhere and smashed PUBG in large part because PS gamers supported it, but sure we will see how perspectives change when another monster game like COD drops with it's own version of BR. The truth is that while Bluehole was toiling away with it's bad optimization on the xbox the competition beat them at their own game.
Thank for your paid beta testing for us PS4 fans.
Blackout is pretty much a well polished FPS version of PUBG. Yeah it cost more, but I'd take Blackout over PUBG any day.
If they're smart they'll try to get Sony to allow it to launch as one of the PS+ games to get gamers on board. The competition all go for the price of free so they have to do something clever.
its too late now
