Psychonauts 2 might get a native Xbox Series version but not for the PS5. This is according to the Brazil Game Rating Board.
I mean it would make sense. Psychonauts 2 is only coming to the PS4 to make good on the promises made to their "investor" and the PS5 was not a thing at that time.
It's ok I think with BC this game will be native 4k/60fps on ps5 anyway. We have to realize Ms have full intentions of competing with Sony with keeping games away from PlayStation As a gamer competition is what wanted but I never thought any of the big publishers would be bought. But this situation in my opinion will become ugly by end of this generation when both ms and Sony will buy out most of not all medium size publishers. Ms will do it because they need content for GP and Sony will have to do it because PlayStation is their bread and butter and they can't let me have control over so many IP's. Gamers will not win and in my opinion this won't be healthy competition. We will be left with the greediest publishers (EA, Activision, take two, ubi) Square enix, Capcom and Sega will be bought out by end of this generation (my guess is square and Capcom by Sony and Sega by ms) I also think Sony has or will sign a long term contract/or maybe even straight out buy the rights for MGS, SH and Castlevania One company will 100% push Netflix model while the other will push 100% conventional gaming model PlayStation has a easier road simply due to their market share and their importance for Sony to succeed and I think if it comes down to it those japanese publishers may choose Sony over Ms as long as money is about the same
Square Enix is worth over 1/4 of Sony. I don't think they can afford to buy them. They will just continue to bid on exclusivity for Final Fantasy games.
No, Sony is now worth 95 billion while SE is 2 billion... both are numbers for 2021. Sony has enough spending money to do it if they really wanted to and they would get a return on that purchase easily a year or two into the buyout.
People don't like facts I guess. 🤷🏻♂️
man what the heck are you talking about playstation generates more in a month than squire enix's worth
But if the money is "about the same," MS can just over pay without sweating it at all. Sony would need to hope for private companies choosing less money to go with a preferred partner in Sony, like Insomniac did. Capcom, Sega, and Square are all public companies. If they consider an acquisition, it's all about the size of the check. I suspect it'll be a bidding war with MS, Tencent, and other big guns in those scenarios. Sony's best shot is mid size dev studios
How do you imagine the game is going to be native 4K/60 on PS5 with BC?
Either release on other consoles or keep it exclusive, this is just an annoying inbetween.
It's releasing on other consoles. It just won't have a PS5 version/patch right away. It's pretty understandable. Nobody who funded the Kickstarter pledged for a PS5 version. They're honoring the deal, and non-xbox owners get the added benefit of getting a game that was given extra funds to improve it.
If there is gonna be an optimised version for XSX and they are releasing it on playstation console i see no reason why there shouldnt be a ps5 version aswell. Unless its microsoft being petty, which i dont mind just wish theyd go full petty and just say look ur not getting it now, as opposed to offering a lesser version when then they could offer a better version aswell thats gonna be available elsewhere. Ill play this on my pc anyway so all good.
The reason is just cost - benefit. Smart Delivery and the Xbox's upgrade system are easier for all devs as we see all across the board. Especially true when you're now in-house with MS and their own engineer team can lend a hand. Sony's upgrade system is more complicated, but with BC, it's still playable on PS5. So what's the benefit to MS? They don't gain anything from being the "good guy" on this one and giving even more to their competitor. PS players are getting the added benefit of the new content and additions paid for by MS with the acquisition. Thinking this is any kind of issue is petty imo. I backed it at the $39 tier, so PC for me too.. But I will be looking for a physical SE version if announced that includes the soundtrack and art book in physical forms.
I mean MS owns it so they can do what they want with it if there's no obligations.
PS Users: Xbox has no exclusives. Xbox gets games.... Microsoft never makes anything they just buy publishers..and I want that game on PS5
Yeah I've noticed this trend. The same people who scream that MS has no games also want all of MS's games on PS. I saw it with KI and Sea of Thieves for years. "Put this game on PS!!" in every comments section. It's somehow not understood that MS owns IPS just like Sony and Nintendo.
Haven't heard anything about exclusives like MechWarrior 5 which got solid reviews...I wonder why.
I don’t think we should be surprised by this. Most of the PS owners don’t want to see any console manufacturers succeed beside the PS, for whatever reason (childish or otherwise).
Then I know which console im buying it on
It's a no brainer. If you purchase the Xbox console version, you'll own the PC version as well via Play Anywhere
Of course Xbox! PS5 is already sold everywhere!
Or PC, which is usually the best place to play.
@Noctis Well...he said "which console to buy", and in the meantime, to build a PC, when processor's price rise to 50% and GPU 100%-300%, or not available at all in my country, is never easy. Economically, buying Xbox or PS5 are more feasible.
They should if they want to make money. That simple. Biomutant sold 71% on sony machines in england... Now do the math what that means in cash....
If that’s the case, then Sony should put all their games on PC as well, seeing Horizon’s launch sale on PC was nearly on par with the Witchers 3. They should if they want to make money. https://www.videogameschron...
Dude because hzd is already got a name in videogaming. Thats why. Pc gamers were desperate to play it. Thats the great stategy from sony. Not day one... Where they sell millions of games and consoles. Only Nintendo can do that also. Thats why there 120 million ps4 and 50 xbox... World apart.
