At Summer Game Fest, Hideo Kojima has taken the (virtual) stage to tease Death Stranding Director's Cut for the PS5.
Loved this game and went for the plat and I'm planning to do the same for this one on PS5, bring it!
Hopefully it is a free upgrade for PS4 DS owners.
It's a Director's Cut though and seeing as the original didn't sell as much this might be a double-dip sort of tactic to make up for not reaching the desired sales. This won't be a free update.
@CrimzonWing69 https://www.google.com/amp/... According to that it was a sales success for Sony. Double dip tactic also does not make any sense. When it released in 2019 there where about 90+ PS4 potential customers but your saying it sold poorly. So would why they release the ps5 with only 8+ million customers and hope to be a sales success?
This is a quote from your article you linked: “While the “acclaim” part is certainly true going by critical reception, the other titles have sold upwards of 10 million copies since release. If Death Stranding were in the same category, it would surely have been promoted as such by Sony. Director Hideo Kojima stated in May 2020 that the game was profitable but also didn’t indicate that it had sold millions of copies. Until Sony confirms as much, it’s best to take this revelation with a grain of salt.” I have not seen any sales figures being touted like Sony has for their best sellers. There’s also a number of articles like these: https://www.videogameschron... This was the NPDs: https://www.usgamer.net/art... #7 for November 2019 https://venturebeat.com/202... Didn’t even make the top 20 the very next month. As for the double dip, think about it. You want to make more sales off a release. Remastering doesn’t take a lot and I’m not sure what’s all additional content, but I doubt it’s anything substantially expensive to create. Then you sell the game at full price for next-gen. Maybe it can do what Tomb Raider Definitive Edition did. Tomb Raider originally sold like 5 million and was considered a failure and then the Definitive Edition came out (Remaster) and made up the sales. That was a double-dip.
I hope this get 60fps, I would get it again if it does. Otherwise, I don't see the point.
100% there is a 60fps mode.
Hope they confirm some sort of upgrade path for this.
I feel that this will either be a free upgrade to current owners or it will be like FF7 Integrade DLC with the performance upgrade being free.
It don’t need 60fps the game is soo slow It wont change a thing
very nice. this and TLOU being remade for PS5 are two great games indeed.
I thought the same thing at one point but i was thinking that if they add TLOU2 mechanics, it would make the experience much much better if they aren't just doing a re-skin of the game.
You are very bad at trolling so yeah better keep sleeping.
Kojima is amazing. Just wish he would another mgs and zone of enders, but he cant....
Snatcher sequel also.. been waiting since 1994 for that!
This is the game that the Dualsense controller has been waiting for. ;)
Good point, and 3D audio wouldn't hurt either. I remember the PS4 version near the start where you first come to a forcefield/barrier near the first terminal and it sounded amazing. I spent several minutes just passing through the barrier and messing around, listening to how the sound changes.
PS Exclusive Metal Gear Solid 1 Remake incoming! Lets goooo Kojima!
Kojima doesn’t own the rights to Metal Gear - unfortunately it’s stuck with Konami who don’t know their ass from their elbow. We’ll get an MGS 1 remake pachinko. Out of interest, why would it matter to you if it’s a PS exclusive or not? Are games more fun when they aren’t on PC/Xbox/Switch? Lol
PS exclusives are generally higher quality so there's less concern. Multiplatform games are more dependent on developer...and if the game is on Switch as well it just guarantees we would be getting a slightly high res version of a Switch game on next gen consoles. For example... Neo The world ends with you and P5 Strikers.
It’s probably more of a mindset thing… if Ratchet & Clank for example was multiplatform it would be nowhere near a popular.
@VersusDMC Since when were MGS and Kojima games low quality? TPP was on all platforms and was extremely high quality.
I believe that’s out of Kojima's hands… unless of course Bluepoint (???) asks him to be an advisor for the game?! But you cannot deny this Directors Cut snippet definitely had that Metal Gear vibe. Oh, the sound effects alone! Kojima is a real-life Riddler. Maybe he’s trying to hint at something here?
It's already been noted that Konami is licensing out ALL their IPs to other studios to make new entries. Any studio is free to make Metal Gear, Castlevania, Silent Hill, Contra.... this death stranding teaser literally had audio ripped straight from MGS. It's really not that much of a stretch at all to think Sony has already struck a deal to develop a new MGS game perhaps with Kojima helping out or flat out making it himself. Remember what Geoff said, FULL reveal in a few weeks. Sooooo at a late June PlayStation showcase then? Perfect timing to literally counter ANYTHING poor Xbox can muster to gather some kind of momentum. Sony has SO many unannounced secrets, including having already acquired Housemarque to be under their umbrella which was leaked out in an interview.
Just when you thought the marathon was over......you walked a million miles......but your journey has just begun. The greatest walking Sim ever has returned with.... THE DIRECTORS CUT "blister corns and bunions" Pre-order now and get limited edition shoe insoles
that was pretty damn funny
Kojima teases a game within a game. MGS C'mon!
Still not got around to playing this. Spite even buying the death stranding limited edition PS4 pro console. It's still in my backlog. Hopefully a cheap or free upgrade is possible.
I have that Pro too, still unopened for collection purposes.
The real news here is that Kojima cut something to even make a Go Postal edition.
Hell yeah. I'd still pay this again, even if the save file doesn't transfer. Such an epic experience,
Kojima is the director and it's his company. What he says goes, so how was the original version not the Director's Cut? Hmm.
Is this a serious question lol?
Yes. Kojima's own company made the game. The first version wasn't the director's cut of a game the director had complete creative control over?
@Tedakin Budget cuts, time constraints, hardware limitations, etc. His company didn’t pay for the game to be made clearly there were things that he wanted in the original that didn’t make it in.
Christ all mighty the game was 50 plus hours long WTF didn't you include Kojima? Also trying real hard here to invoke MGS huh, literally couldn't get past the shadow of that series I see
I'm calling it: Death Stranding: Directors Cut will include a demo for the new metal gear solid game. It is ZOE and MGS2 demo all over again, it was genius then and it is genius now. If it has a demo will I buy it.... F yeah I will buy it.
Behold!!!!!!!! Another game to buy twice over again!!!!
Not sure why this game is even remotely popular. It was the most boring game I have tried this year. I love Metal Gear series had high hopes but man was this game boring.
I gave it a chance, but I was in the camp of those who just couldn't get into it. I was bored. But a lot of people seemed to like it as well. I know one of my favorite Youtubers, SuperBunnyHop found it a really refreshing experience, so obviously it's just a really polarizing experience.
Even for ps5 or ps6 i will still be very boring
Don't be so hard on yourself
Good God, it was stunning already when it released!
Good, because I can’t transfer my save from PS4, and the only way I’d start from scratch is if it had Dualsense support. I can’t wait to feel what Kojima did with those triggers.
Dam i knew i should've waited to buy Death Standing because i know this DSC wont be free if you already have the game wish we could at least get 50% off for the ps5 version
So only coming to PS5? Does this then count as a PS5 exclusive? lol
