Deathloop is apparently set to become available on "other consoles" sometime in September 2022, with exclusivity set to end during the 14th.
I’ll check it out on Gamepass.
And i'll be playing newer 2022 holiday games.
And you felt compelled to say that here why? This world be releasing before the holidays.
2022 Holiday games? Like Starfield?
2022 holiday is a year away.
Lol "I'll check it out on Gamepass" is the "I'll listen to that on Spotify" of games. You download it, give it a few minutes, claim you played it and that it's mediocre and overrated, and go back to Halo or Warzone.
@crimson if you like Microsoft and have a friend with PS5 you should buy it now play it in his house with the pretense of a gift to him and keep Microsoft money rolling in 😂
One year after it was first announced? No shit. I am pretty sure we all knew it was a one year deal.
Incredible game to have as a year long exclusive. Not FF7R mind you but still impressive.
Now, personally I think Sony wasted their money with this one. Deathloop was mid af. I'd rather hear they copped Emberlab so Emberlab could male a Kena 2 on a much bigger scale
I still find it funny that one of the best games on PS5 this year is made by Microsoft. And before someone points out that the deal was inked before acquisition - I know. I just find it funny.
That would make it made by Bethesda, not Microsoft
And Bethesda’s parent company is Zenimax, and Zenimax’s parent company is…? Oh, right - it’s Microsoft.
You can't give Microsoft credit for that when the game would have been in development many years before Microsoft even bought Zenimax.
Microsoft has enough money that they can afford any legal fee you could imagine. Cancelling a contract with a competitor as part of a multibillion dollar acquisition could've been done as quickly as signing one of the many documents I'm sure were needed, but they didn't do that. So yes. It's a game made by a Microsoft-owned studio. Therefore, it's a game made by... Microsoft.
Now that you pointed that out I guess that detracts from Sony's ability to support unique experiences.
Logic is clearly not your thing.
"I still find it funny that one of the best games on PS5 this year is made by Microsoft." Of course you do.
@Rau Yep I do, also funny that it’s one of MS’s best games of the year and isn’t on their platform. It isn’t even in PC game pass.
I get what you’re saying, but it’s a Bethesda game that was in development before Microsoft acquired them. It’s like saying that it’s funny that Sunset Overdrive, Which according to you would be a Sony PlayStation Studio made game, is on Microsoft’s Gamepass.
Or the flip side…The Best game that “MS produced” in time to be considered for the game awards was only available and enjoyable by those on PS5s and PCs all year while Xbox fans continue to wait for more AAA’s of quality to dribble in. All I really know is optics are a funny thing.
@Crimson Sunset was released years before the acquisition, DeathLoop was released over a year after the acquisition. @Flavor No optics here, I called out both sides above as being funny.
@SonyStyled So wait, does that mean every Sony game isn't made by Sony since they only own the studios?
Best games after returnal and ratchet...sure. only thing is that deathloop critical reception is actually mixed between reviewers and gamers unlike the first 2.
@TheDoomedGuy Deathloop and Ratchet are both 88 avg, Returnal is 85. Deathloop has also won more awards. User reception is hard to quantify, there's no legitimate/accurate source for that.
I see Orchard trying hard. Have you apply at MS for a job yet? Or are you not qualify for any role there?
So mom and dad made you, you make a son, and your son makes a game. Who made the game? Your son or your parents?
@RedDevils You certainly wouldn't qualify with that level of English... reading that was painful. @MrNinosan Hardly the same thing as a business... people are separate entities, both in terms of will and financials - businesses owned by parent companies are not. Money being spent on Deathloop (and sequels, dlcs, patches etc) comes from Microsoft. Sales revenue etc goes to Microsoft. Zenimax and Bethesda are subsidiaries of Xbox Game Studios - not separate entities.
I'm not sure why anyone finds it surprising that this only lasted one year as an exclusive, being, as you said, it is a Bethesda title. I was mildly surprised that it became MS allowed it to go to Sony in the first place. Probably too much trouble to fight in court.
@ orchard Microsoft acquired Zenimax in March 2021, Deathloop came out September 2021. I’m not sure how you measure time, but that is not over a year. If not for the pandemic, the game would have been released before the acquisition. Microsoft may own Bethesda now, but it’s likely they had zero input into the development of the actual game. Therefore, they deserve zero credit for its reception. They do deserve credit for honoring the exclusivity agreement, as I am sure they could have afforded to alter it, although I’m sure they felt it wasn’t worth it (between the cost and bad press).
If the deal was signed before MS and wasn't tampered with, MS actually isn't involved in it at all. They stayed out of the deal as it would break the deal agreement. No matter how far you reach, MS actually isn't the one who made this lol
Also, it's been well known by deathloops playerbase that they don't agree with the reviewers. On the other hand, Ratchet is lo Ed by the people in the same range as returnal is loved by the players more than its reviewer reception and also added features that fix most of the games critiques which would land it a higher score lol. That's the issue. Deathloop is really considered a middle of the line good game by players. Awards aren't player choosen for the most part, it's reviewer choosen. That's why the few that are will have Dread, Ratchet, Returnal or Forza win over it 99% of the time lol.
I wish you guys would stop talking about MS pockets and what they can afford. None of you guys sound remotely astute in business nor can you afford it so just continue occupying the realm of a gamer. Crossovers don't often work well. Last I checked, when Deathloop received one of their many awards, the devs thanked SONY for believing in them not MS. What's that tell you? Arkane, Bethesda, Obsidian, etc were a part of the Zenimax deal so what choice did they have? Would any of those companies INDEPENDENTLY choose MS over Sony? The numbers in sells projections would suggest otherwise, as ALL their profit was coming from the PS side. The MS community is so desperate to have a victory that they ignore truths to celebrate lies. Zenimax was purchased out of fear NOT prowess. Sony has damn near the whole gaming industry backing it and there's not one word that can be said to combat that. So keep giving credit to MS, we all KNOW the truth. I'll just sit this right here. Pay attention to who got thanks and who didn't: https://youtu.be/G82PCZSwcg... Note: This was after the MS purchase as well. Speaks volumes.
No surprise idiots going to be idiots. Deathloop the best game on Playstation 5?! Lol. There were plenty of great games. I personally thought Returnal was better.
I personally wouldn't read much into that. There have been plenty of complaints due to the winners having such short time to thank everyone. He literally said he had to stop there because he was running out of time and wanted to at least thank his family. He also didn't thank Bethesda, the literal reason the game even exists. Everyone was scrambling to give an award speach in 30 seconds, while having event staff yelling at them to hurry up and cut their speeches short. You're reading way too much into that, but sure, whatever fits your narrative.
@porkchop Don't read too much into this but along with his family, he made SURE to NOT cut Sony out. He said believing in them, this said knowing Sony is know to assist in the actual developmental process of games they support. Speaks volumes that even Bethesda wasn't included either. None of this would have even been considered without your contribution 🥩....thanks for cementing my point even further.🤣🤣
Oh so now you're blatantly suggesting Sony actually helped develop the game. Do you have any actual source for that? Or are you just making it up to further your narrative? I mean all I see so far is you reaching and making ridiculous claims based on zero logic.
Not to mention as was pointed out on Reddit, purchasing ZeniMax is also an API war because games like Doom probably will switch from Vulkan in favor of DX12. Definitely a fear factor in their purchase.
@Nick Yeah, that's a legit concern. We'll have to see how it goes. Doom 2016 supported both Vulkan and DirectX, so hopefully future Doom games do the same. I'd be disappointed if they switched entirely to DirectX.
Is it though? It initially received a lot of praise from the media. Once players got their hands on it though the hype seemed to die down very quick. From what I can see people thought the game had a lot of cool ideas, but most agree the game was overhyped. I'm not saying the game is bad at all, but it doesn't seem like PS gamers thought it was worth the exclusivity.
I would think most PS5 owners have played Deathloop already,they should just release it on other consoles at the beginning of the new year. I doubt if anyone cares.
I have a ps5 since day 1 and never played it, probably because I've not even taken the ps5 out of its box and is still sealed. I've put it with all my retro consoles in the hope many years from now it will be worth a pretty penny
Sell it to a worthy fellow gamer instead of letting it collect dust. Let someone put it to good use considering how difficult they are to come by.
Around the time I'll be getting a Series X in anticipation for Starfield.. Perfect timing I'd say.
Another overhyped game that wasn't great. These developers are losing their touch. Maybe it had something to do with the pandemic. I didn't even want to finish this game.
It's got an 88 on metacritic, tying for their second best reviewed game, and also tying the meta score for Ratchet & Clank and Ghost of Tsushima. Maybe insomniac is losing their touch too, what a bad score, maybe it is the pandemic
What does Ratchet & Clank and Ghost of Tsushima have to do with my comment or what I said??? You're definitely off topic LMAO. To answer your comment the user score is a 63 https://www.metacritic.com/... and the user score on PC is a 49 and I have the PC version This is by far the most disappointing project that Arkane had done. Most of the abilities, weapons and skills are literally just taken and recycled from their previous title '' Dishonored ''. The game actually takes a ton of things from Dishonored but does them way worse than they should be. The game play mechanic of ''Loops'' is not used to its full potential and by the middle of the game it becomes a tedious chore of checklists. The Story was fine for the most part but nothing that interesting. All of your ''Targets'' are washed down characters with barely any background and story and look exactly like any other NPC which make them barely distinguishable from the other basic enemies. The optimization for the PC is one just awful and they still haven't fixed most of the basic issues that the game has. I would say avoid this game on PC since it feels like they have barely tried to make a functional, entertaining and provoking game and failed miserably by giving up half-way through and it's also very repetitive. I can't speak on the PS5 version
Let's bring up the user scores instead. Because you know how the media never ever politicizes anything right....
Ratings mean nothing in the gaming industry. Just look at Halo Infinite. Ratings are bought, not earned.
@CaptainHenry916 If the game is that overhyped, and that bad, why are PS gamers not up in arms at Sony and questioning why they wasted money grabbing this as a 12 month exclusive?
You know this game in on PC right? It's not an Playstation exclusive
@CaptainHenry916 What does PC have to do with Sony paying and signing a 12 month console exclusivity contract? There are a lot of Sony PS gamers saying the game is average at best, so my statement still stands, Sony wasted money paying a 12 month deal for an "average" game right? Does not matter whether the game is on PC, we are talking consoles, as per the article and comments.
The same reason that Xbox fans never bring up Tomb Raider? Dead Rising? When again those funds could of been spent on making games instead? Remember the we're spending $1 billion on games? Oh right and what came of that money? Yeah almost all timed exclusives. This gen did you forget The Medium? Falconeer? Warhammer Vermintide 2? Warhammer Darktides? Etc
@Chevalier He won't bring up Tomb raider or all the games you mention 😃😂 @DJStotty Maybe you should tell that to a Sony fanboy. I'm just letting everyone know how I felt about this multiplatform game and giving my opinion.
Game is average at best. No idea why it got awards. The AI is so incredibly dumb. You can literally sit in a hallway and they run at you in a straight line.
Most overrated game of 2021 and it wasn't that well optimize on the PC at launch
Better than all these unplayable, overhyped games that don't have a difficulty option.
Returnal and anything by From Software
Awww Yui wants a difficulty selection…. someone please ensure all games have an easy setting for yui! I hate to call someone’s opinion invalid but man….
plz go back to your hentai novels. You're clearly out of your element with such dumbspeak
Plenty of games don't have difficulty settings. Do you need a bib when you eat as well? Lol. Sorry there are baby mode games. Would lego blocks be easier than a lego videogame? Jeez. Got to love this wave of players that 'don't have time' or couldn't be bothered with effort. NES game era would have ended you guys. Lol
I do not know of any humans that do not run straight, unless they have had a skinfull. Would you like them to zig zag run at you?
By that time it will be down to less than 20 bucks on PC and maybe on PS5 too lol. Probably even just 9.99 on PC already.
I've restarted this game twice after dropping it to play other games and it still hasn't grabbed me for some reason. It has made me want to go back and get the plat on Dishonoured 2 though.
Dishonored 1 and 2 are way better titles. And if you want something similar in concept...just play prey dlc.
I'm curious to see if more people play it on xbox...
