PlayStation 5 exclusives dominated the UK boxed charts this week, taking the first, second and third spot.
Nice, I'll pick up Ghost of Tsushima: Director's Cut at some point as well, since I missed it on PS4.
But all those 0/10 user scores review bombing the game on Metacritic. Looks like they didn’t do anything just like when they pulled the same thing with The Last of Us: Part 2. Metacritic should make you sign into your platform account and have at least one trophy/achievement to post a user review.
To be fair going off the Reddit it seems most of those scores are from those p***** off about the price and TLOU2 fans who just want to hate on the game as some sort of “revenge” Also metacritic did do something with the TLOU2, they removed scores. They probably won’t do the same here
Plenty of other 0/10 demons souls and ratchet and clank rift apart reviews too. 0/10 shouldn't even be a score, it would have to be a scam game or entirely unplayable and even the latter idk about a 0.
The Last of us 2 we all understand why that happened but why Ghost ?? It's one of the most adored and best video games of all time..
@-Foxtrot "TLOU2 fans who just want to hate on the game as some sort of “revenge”" I think you're projecting a bit there, Foxtrot. There's no mention of TLOU2 in any of the reviews at all. Wtf?
I wound agree. I’d almost go a step further and upload the end game trophy. And really this should be the same on both sides of the fence for example Halo Infinite / Psychonaughts 2 / The Ascent. At least by then you can post an honest review.
That's why I dont trust user reviews at all, many are dupe accounts and reviews going up way too early before anyone actually had a chance to really play the game.
The only reviews I thrust are from Steam since you need to own the game to have the right to publish a review. The number of hours logged in the game is also displayed. Also Steam keeps track of momentum shift in reviews to prevent or warn ppl about potential review bombing that in no way or shape reflect the state of the game.
Foxtrot was one of the ones who hated on TLOU2 I believe. Thats why he is bringing it up here.
@Jin_sakai No surprise there. When it comes to childish stuff, it seems like gamers excel at that silliness.
@Foxtrot Did you like TLOU2? I didn't really like it. I would have gave it a 7 or 8 not a 9 or 10. I gave the first game a 9 though
@Fox TLOU Part 2 really hurt you a lot didn't it? We get it, you hate the game, and am honestly not surprised you would be making up these lies.
That's too much work for those bums. It would mean they actually care.
Played through the main story on the weekend, what a fantastic game. One of the best games I ever played, they could have cut so many corners but you can really tell they worked hard on just about everything in this game. They could have cut so many corners but they really leaned in and gave you everything you would want in a game like this.
Watch the bonus content. Talk about showing the love for the source material.
I complained about the $70 price tag but I bought it and I'm loving the Iki Island Expansion 😒 (I did sell my PS4 copy for around $50, so I guess I paid a fair price)
Debating whether to sell my PS4 copy and buy the PS5 disc, or just upgrade.
Do whatever makes you feel right with it. Just play it.
I sold my special edition PS4 version on ebay for $65 and put it towards the physical PS5 version. No shame whatsoever. Do it to have everything on disc.
I'm going physical
The game is even better on the ps5. Sony games are just on fire this summer
Sony’s 1st party games are on another level , they always have and always be👍🏻
Man I only wish it was longer. Problem with this game is you don't want it to end. At least you can relay camps now.
Ok that's news to me. You can replay camps now? This is awesome. Can you do that on the ps4 too? Damnit..been busy these couple of weeks. Time to dive in again.
Been enjoying my time with the new content, but man it’s weird to come back to a game and relearn the controls. First thing I did was accidentally slash my horse thinking mount was triangle like AC Valhalla.
This is exactly why I've been waiting before starting a game. Having to constantly learn the controls again made the experience unpleasant at times. I now wait for the complete edition or until all the DLC is out. It's usually on sale by that point and a large portion of bugs has been dealt with, if you have patience it's a win-win scenario.
Played this game and finished it, what a masterpiece. Then proceeded to play Cyberpunk and cursed myself for not saving Ghost after that travesty. Will pick up the Directors Cut, loaned the original from my brother and it deserves a spot on my shelf.
It's just the beginning for Sony Exclusives
This is such an amazing game.
How is GTA5 still selling it blows my mind how much they are making off that game!
nice one for this Im looking forward
that's awesome, but can I just say how much I love that artwork? beautiful
There are so many 0/10 metacritic reviews for this game from users its unreal lol. I bet 99% of them havnt bought it yet or won't. Metacritic really needs to update their site to sync with accounts and only allow reviews with the trophy from a completion of said game or DLC. On a good note, it's outstanding so far. No bugs seem yet and this game was already amazing. It's just amazinger and the duelsense really turns up the notch. More content for this game is always welcome too.
I saw this article the other day, https://gamingnovato.com/ep... and it made me think. Is that what the companies that are trying to push streaming/Gaas services trying to do? Shape the industry the way they want it, so they can make it less about gaming, and more about making a quick buck, with less work? Feels like someone is controlling the narrative that cheap and accessible is the future, but I hope boxed games are around for years to come. I feel like when boxes are gone, gaming as we know it and love it will be gone.
Sony and Nintendo doing very well on software sales.
Not surprising considering Sony consistently churns out top quality exclusives while Microsoft on the other hand rarely puts out anything of notice.
Well it is an amazing game
When I get a PS5 this will be one of 3 games I'll be picking up initially.
I’ve tried so hard to get into it, but I just can’t, I don’t know why but I can’t. I’m gutted though. I know it’s amazing, everyone I know loves it so much. I know quite a few peeps that got the platinum on it. I don’t think the setting does it for me and I didn’t really enjoy the combat. I really didn’t like the thought of spending 30 + hours in the world. And before everyone disagrees I already know the game is great. Just really wish I liked it. I’ve tried twice now, played it for about 4 hours the last time.
