More games for their Early Access Limbo? Nooice!

SimpleSlave300d ago

You know it. Gotta keep that Train a Rollin' bay bay! Choo! Choo!

mastershredder300d ago

Yeah looks 3D realms alright, just a tad up from Running with scissors. Fitting as a $20.00 budget tile (current gen), or a $60.00 switch release.

I guess we should see these games in about another 20 years after another development company picks up the pieces and finishes them.

Why the gradual death of the console exclusive makes business sense

And why Lego Horizon Adventures is coming to Switch.

Depends really. Like for example I moved onto pc so sony is missing out on the thousands I spend on games where they take a cut in the walled garden while most casuals won't do what I did and they'll make money. So it all depends how many die hard spenders switch to pc or just stay with sony

Exclusives absolutely make sense. Nintendo, for an example, needs to keep exclusives to sell their consoles. So does Sony to a large extent. Xbox is just falling behind so much on the hardware front that they are trying a somewhat modified approach but they are still going to be producing exclusives if they are going to be producing new Xbox generations.

So far Sony has taken a good approach to PC, but so far the PS5 era hasn't been my favorite Sony era. Hasn't been bad, but not great. I hope that this is being rectified.

Too me it's just another goofy Lego game no different then the last Lego games. I think Sony putting it on Switch they are just trying to make some extra cash. It's not like Sony is actually porting Horizon on the actual Switch. It's a kid friendly game no different then Lego Batman, Lord of the Rings, Lego Star Wars. Sony owns the IP they can pretty much do what ever they want with Aloy. And there is no death to the console exclusive. Microsoft putting exclusives on other platforms is to make money. Porting exclusives to other platforms breathes new life into that franchise, opens the doors to new fans, and gives that franchise a new breath of air. Instead of sitting on the shelf collecting dust.

IGN Instructed & Offered Prizes for Crowd to Cheer During Phil Spencer and Other Live Interviews

During the IGN Live interview with Phil Spencer, the crowd cheered even if the topic was about closures, and its because they were told to.

GaboonViper8h ago

A very "slimey" thing to do right Phil???

Anyhow ive never trusted IGN, corrupt to the core.

Killer2020UK7h ago

And now they own a load of other gaming outlets. Sucks for the consumer

roadkillers6h ago

It's not scummy... how is this any different than any late night talk show for the past 60 years. People are cued when to cheer, partially artificial I am sure. It's also good for IGN, last thing they want is THEIR show to be a dud.

I would definitely do it if I owned IGN, especially getting someone huge like Phil.

S2Killinit6h ago(Edited 6h ago)

I’ve been saying for years that IGN is MS’s mouthpiece.

fr0sty6h ago

@roadkillers... I dunno, maybe because late night talk shows aren't asking people to cheer for hundreds of people losing their jobs?

ravens525h ago

Late Night Talk Show vs Consumer Showcase/Interview. How are you even putting them in the same category. One is for pure entertainment the other is an interview based on a product.

PRIMORDUS4h ago

And how much is MS worth? 3 trllion and Phil the piece of shit saying "the closures are very hard, but needed for sustainable business" Really? Your worth 3 trillion and the closures were no where near necessary. I don't know about you but I want this asshole to just leave and resign. He's just cancer to the industry.

It's crazy. Some of the top people at IGN are really great, but the organization as a whole just continually finds itself in controversy.

Lightning776h ago

It's all for recognition and publicity. Which doesn't work. It was all staged and disingenuous.

Hard to trust anything IGN does especially now they have a monopoly.

crazyCoconuts6h ago

Hard to trust the integrity of the reviews when they are caught manipulating their audience

-Foxtrot4h ago

Now that IGN owns a lot of sites now it’s hard to trust a fair few

Aloymetal6h ago

And some get triggered when we call on their BS and state the obvious. Anyone with half a brain knows the gaming media is biased as heck. It's been like that since forever and the sad part is they will gladly do it for free, anything to help their preferred and irrelevant brand.

Should be laws in place against these form of actions. Same goes for all the fake 5 start reviews for receiving free items. You can’t believe anything you read or hear anymore.

porkChop6h ago

In journalism school they straight up taught us to never take free products, swag, food, etc, even if there are no strings attached. Even if someone doesn't realize it, and no matter how far removed the swag is from what you're covering/reviewing, free stuff does affect how you perceive the company and its products. It tricks you into feeling more positive about things.

How's this Phil doing?
Was Phil in charge of the 3-day fanfest called IGN Live 2024?
