Microsoft has Minecraft. Epic has Fortnite. When it talks about releasing multiplatform games, Sony is wanting a juggernaut of its own.
Sony has lbp and dreams. Yet not multiple platforms
Never going to be as big as Minecraft or fortnite.
U just started 2 mp games, of course, they will be bigger. https://twitter.com/46frsts... Dreams will make people money one day.
TITLE: 'Is Sony Secretly Crafting Its Own Minecraft?' (I added the question mark). ARTICLE CONCLUSION: 'Is ReadySet Heroes the next Minecraft or Fortnite? Probably not.'
Considering minecraft and fortnite have sold more than there are ps consoles, then I'd say that's probably true. In any case, the more the merrier. They all offer different things. I think dreams could be huge on PC, and I do hope Sony at least has the creator program on there as I think it would be easier for some people who are use to pc production to use.
It will never be close, but I'm sure it'll still be good in it's own right. I'll definitely check it out
@rainslacker "Considering minecraft and fortnite have sold more than there are ps consoles,..." Minecraft has sold like 176mil units and Fortnite is F2P with MT. so no total unit sold. so...you're way off there as there are over 550mil PS consoles and portables sold since the PS1. not even Tetris has sold THAT much
@badz So, Sony has 176 million PS4 consoles sold? Maybe I should have been specific that I meant current gen. As far as Fortnite, I guess if you want to get technical, then yeah, it's not a sold copy, but there are more players than there are current gen PS4's. Maybe I'm way off because symantically I didn't really define what I was talking about, but I am not off in what I was trying to say.
LBP will never come even a mile of Minecraft success even if it was on every platform. My nephews are hooked on minecraft for 3 years to date. Before minecraft, they played LBP for about 2 months and lost interest. Dream will not make a dent on Minecrafts success. The simplicity of Minecraft to start building is one of the major factors in its success that got millions of kids hooked
Yup, in most creation games i find myself usually playing the audience role. Minecraft is the only game which was straightforward and open-ended enough that i spent dozens of hours building genuinely impressive things.
Shhh, its a secret...
Don't try and tell us want Sony wants Cheatcc, everyone knows your site is pure garbage. Just keep digging for clicks you scum
Apparently your disagrees are still caught up in the delusion, lol. This site is garbage.
Remember when Cheat Code Central was actually a place we went to look up cheat codes? I remember...
Yeah. I miss that version.
It was one of the best sites for cheat codes.
It would never work and never be as successful as Minecraft is, they'd be better off not trying.
To be fair, most likely nothing will be as successful as Minecraft is so that’s not saying much.
Dragon Quest Builders is doing a hell of a good job and it's leaps and bounds better.
Same was said of Wow...
What if Sony had that mindset after the split with Nintendo,, the world would be deprived of the PS1, PS2, PS3, and PS4.
Agree, better to find and make a game with what the nxt craze will be imo
If that's the case no one should try. Minecraft has the largest community in the world. Just because it's the biggest doesn't mean it has to be the only one. If that were the case, then wow would be the only MMO, and LOL would be the only RTS. The sims would be the only....whatever it is There's room in the market for more than one contender, and one doesn't have to beat the other to be successful.
Minecraft is literally the 2nd best selling game on the planet. Of all time, Just under tetris. 3rd place is not even close. Wow was big but not Minecraft big. It's like Facebook or YouTube.. They're never gonna die.
And does that mean no one else should try to make another successful product?
They're not saying Sony should actually make a Minecraft clone. Do you people even read beyond the headline? They're saying Sony doesn't have a multiplatform hit. Maybe they could just buy one, like MS did with Minecraft. If they feel the need. It's a pretty stupid article.
If you have an issue with the way people are commenting perhaps you should take it up with the person who you feel inaccurately titled the article.
Minecraft happened at the right time and it'll never happen again.
I agree somewhat but disagree it won't happen again. There rare granted but every 10 years 1 comes along.
That's an interesting ambition if true. I know PS4 has Dreams, and they've tried to break into that realm in the past with LBP and even ModNation and PS Home being this big environment for gamers to collaborate with each other and expand on the world in interesting ways that could be monetized. In order to pull that off however, Sony would need to embrace both a multiplatform release on mostly non PS hardware and crossplay with all platforms. Games like Minecraft, Fornite and Roblox are as big as they are because they are everywhere...consoles, PC, mobile, in the classrooms etc. Sony will need to put this game there as well on all the store fronts day and date.
If they do it, dreams is the game to go for it with.
Maybe tough to translate Dreams to other platforms and input types. But if that's the one, I say go for it!
Dreams makes the most sense. The content that can be created can be varied enough to attract everyone. The content creation is already a big hobbyist activity on PC, and there is a lot of talent there.
What they really need is an exclusive FPS.
They do, it’s called Killzone. I won’t debate the quality of the series since I’m not into FPS and don’t know how it stacks up to competitors like Halo. But they have one nonetheless.
You cant just make a minecraft, you make a game and it sometimes catches on like minecraft.
Can't believe Minecraft is still this popular
This article is terrible as usual. They didn't seek out new platforms for Minecraft after acquisition. Game released on PS4 on 9/5/14. Microsoft didn't announce their Mojang/Minecraft deal until 9/15. Game was already released. Sony has put games on PC before, so what the hell are they talking about with ReadySet Heroes? It isn't coming to any other consoles.
More trash from a trash site.
Hopefully Dreams gets Big. Fantastic game.
We saw how creating their own Smash Brothers went
They'd have to avoid forcing it. You won't get there with a late knock-off game. It won't/can't be a Minecraft or Battle Royale clone, at this point. That includes a Smash Bros clone, etc. Make them if you want (they can be fun) but that won't give you a monster, cross-plat title. It takes true creativity and idea that cannot be manipulated by corporate interests before build. Almost all indie-to-mega hits come from a very small team with full creative control because they're not working for anyone. Corporate control ruins most good ideas. That said, Sony is pretty good about leaving dev's alone. Not perfect but better than MS and Nintendo. That will help them in their hunt, IMO.
Minecraft has been around for millions of years. Ok exaggeration. But it's on like every device and can run on low end machines. Is good fun for people messing around together or building worlds. I don't even play it, lol but my son did for awhile and will prob go back to it now and then. He loved LBP on PS3 back in the day. and played it constantly and loved messing around with the levels and creating new ones that were quite simple but fun. As for Sony. They have enough I.P'S. Personally for me, I would just want a new Motorstorm, and a new Resistance or complete remakes for PS5 and i'm golden:0
Warning: cheatcc article, avoid the clickbait and save your time
Cheat code central is the worst
I agree Sony should have a game that is huge as minecraft, it would be sweet,
Dreams has huge potential and could disrupt the industry as I see more people making their own world with it.
You do know MS didn't make Minecraft right?
"Sony is wanting a juggernaut of its own" - is it? I've not seen them mention this anywhere. They have games and franchises that do incredibly well on their own platforms - I'm not sure why they have to buy out the popular game the kids are playing as MS did. What's your suggestion? Roblox?
I was actually thinking about Dreams. Come-on Sony let us play Dreams in Augmented Reality. I want to craft Dreams games for my living room, my kitchen, my bedroom etc....
