The PS5 version accounted for nearly half of the sales.
I'm thinking of buying it but I've never really played the hitman series
I am on the fence as well but I have never played Hitman before.
Hitman is a great game, you missed out blood money is my fav
Play hitman: absolution first. That is what got me interested in the series. Awesome game!
Get it! I discovered Hitman with episode 2 Silent Assassin on the PS2 some 20 years ago, and it's become my main series for infiltration, even more so than Metal Gear Solid or Splinter Cell. The only thing wrong with that reboot in 2016 this Hitman III is a part of, is that regardless of where you are in the world, everybody speaks english (and without an accent), otherwise it's fantastic and offers plenty of replay value. If you get all 3 episodes of that reboot, man you're in for a treat!
I'd never really been a fan of hitman, so I passed on the previous 2 games. Then I noticed that Hitman 2 is on PS Now. I've really enjoyed it, so I'll be picking up number 3. They play a lot like point and click adventures in that you're essentially completing environment puzzles in sequence, to get a result. However, it's more freeform, so you can play and experiment. Also, worth noting, if you pick up Hitman 2 off PS Now. You can activate the access pass on your account and get full access to Hitman 2, from within Hitman 3, even if you haven't bought Hitman 3 yet and even after it leaves PS Now. I'd recommend it
Same. Currently playing Valhalla though. 61hrs so far.
If you are going for 100% your are around halfway done..... God its a long old game.
Jesus! Thats crazy.
As this is part of a trilogy and levels can be carried over buy Hitman Definitive Edition first and then Hitman 2. You can get both of these together for roughly the price of Hitman 3. Hitman is a great series.
Gamepass effect. 75 procent is PlayStation. The full price earnings are very important for developers. I tell you quality will go down with subscription models.
you don't think devs are rewarded based on who plays games via gamepass?
compared to real sales? probably A LOT LESS.
Well if it's like Netflix. No. Producers of movies or series do not know how many times their movie is streamed. They just get a fixed price... What is my source. A Belgium serie was asked how many times their série was streamed. They do not know. Also how they would get money. As people do not pay for it you have maybe 50 procent who just try it for less than 1 hour. So would it be justified to get payed for every try?
@vw1303 - who said it's like Netflix? Two different services. I assure you they can tell how many people have played and how many hours have been logged. Here's an article that Phil mentioned different breakdowns for devs putting their titles on gamepass. Seems like there are many different ways devs can earn money. https://www.pcgamer.com/xbo...
You think people aren't buying it because they think eventually it might go to game pass?
@vw1303 "Gamepass effect." Hitman 3 is not available on gamepass.
Some PS5s can't even play discs (thus suggesting that a higher percentage of overall PS5 game sales will be digital compared to PS4 games), and there are only a few million PS5s sold, yet its physical sales of Hitman double the PS4 version and its vaunted install base. Despite this happening in January of 2021, two months after PS5's launch, we'll still see people using the "install base" and "why leave behind 120 million gamers" nonsense to justify cross-gen games in 2022.
I know people who have the disc console and still buy mostly digital. Because you never know when you'll need the disc drive. They also don't give a shit about saving $100 to buy the non0disc version
Exactly, that's what I do. I take it for granted that the newer the console, the higher the percentage of sales that will be digital, because people are gradually shifting. I only point to the digital version because that is an objective fact that refutes someone from trying to say "well maybe the PS4 version is really selling better and there are just more people buying physical on PS5."
I know Sony wants to make good on their "continued PS4 support" promise which is fine and dandy but I know I would really appreciate some games that are built from the ground up for the PS5 and no I don't want to wait til 2022 for them to be the norm. This cross gen bullshit is extremely frustrating (I'm looking at you Horizon and God of War).
Sony didn't make Hitman 3. Why are you ranting about that here? Nevermind. I didn't see that you were replying to comments. I Apologize.
Exactly. These cross-gen apologists don't seem to realize that if a studio puts out a cross-gen game (that is, a game really built for PS4 rather than PS5) in late 2021 or early 2022, that studio will likely only put out one real PS5 game this gen.
Been messing around with the tutorial on H2. As much as I love stealth/sneaking I can't believe I've overlooked this series for so long.
I'm glad Hitman is still around. I've been a fan since his PS2 outings.
Hitman 3 looks solid! Visuals looks next-gen. Definitely buying it!
