Ubisoft’s game ownership plan and Capcom’s DRM dilemma – Spectator Mode Podcast Ep. 143

The Outerhaven writes: On this episode, we turn our attention to Ubisoft telling gamers that we don't need to own our games, Ayaneo trying to fool us all with the Ayaneo Next Lite, Capcom's DRM nonsense, that amazing Granblue Fantasy Relink Demo (it's so good), Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League frustrations, and a little upcoming Castlevania-like game called The Transylvania Adventure of Simon Quest so much more.

I’m totally fine with never giving Ubisoft any of my money. There’s no way I’m subbing to Ubisoft or buying their games digitally only which they seem to not even want to do that. F em their games arent that great. Even the Prince of Persia game that has scored well looks mediocre graphics wise. I really don’t like that cartoony art style.

Good, this means more games coming to pc, can't wait for Ragnarok!

If you look at a game like Genshin Impact and it made over $5 Billion in revenue since launch for one game and it doesn’t risk the studio, so it gives an insight into why it’s so desired by Sony to go for that perpetual online game. I don’t think Sony should risk bringing its single player games to other consoles but bringing Hellblazer II to Xbox and Nintendo makes perfect sense.

Cool but then where are the PS5 games Sony? So far only 3rd party studios are lifting the console

Sony has brought other titles to PC that are single player. And they seem to be doing good all though I still think Sony should have brought the first three Uncharted games to PC as well. Sony is just breathing new life into games that have done well on Playstation such as Uncharted, Horizon, my favorite Days Gone, Spiderman, God of War. Sony will eventually port Ragnarok and Spiderman 2 to PC as well and I think those two games will do well on PC. I don't see PC players bitching about the games Sony has brought over to PC so far. And Helldivers 2 is doing well on PC except for Sony's F up with having a Playstation account. As for Sony putting Helldivers 2 on Xbox who knows if Sony will or won't port it. As for Nintendo you would need the Switch 2 the current Switch can barely handle Arkham Knight. You call it risky but again I don't see PC player bitching about the games that Sony has ported over so far to PC. If anything it introduced players to games they have never played if they just stick to PC and don't want to buy a Playstation that's their choice.

Hellblazer 1 released along the time that God of Flock released, however it was considering very much an Andie budget game, with a top down perspective twin stick shooter that it was. Then he'll blazers 2 released, in all its 3D glory and crossplay madness.

Besides few core fanboys rest gamers understand the huge potential for PlayStation’s games on PC. Same applies for Xbox games on PlayStation. We as gamers may not like it or understand it but there are billions at stake. More money these companies generate the bigger budgets and resources they can allocate for future projects

The downvotes you’re getting shows how petty the Sony diehards are. Meanwhile Sony just made a good size change and will keep releasing on PC regardless.

I have seen the port-begging for these games on playstation, including Half-Life Alyx

There is no need to port beg for that game anymore, now that they are making PS VR2 compatible with PC.

"Port begging " really you guys are weird. Is that what was happening when Starfield came out? I never heard that term when people were "Port begging " for Starfield.

Sony had no first party releases till next year at the earliest. So, you won't have to worry about Port begging. I feel like I'm losing IQ points repeating that term. Smh

Everyone port begs here...

Nintendo fans port begged for years to get persona 5. Xbox fans portbegged for Helldivers 2 and rebirth recently.

Even Phil Spencer got in on the Helldivers 2 exclusivity whining...

Sony have concord due out later this year for starters ..

Domkakop4h ago

How many times do you need to be reminded of how average and undesirable Starfield is? No one is port begging that mediocre game

Michiel198910h ago

trying to shame people for wanting to play good games, what the fuck even is this?

SeTTriP8h ago

It's because p.c players are cringe.

Shiore2u3h ago

Psychological projection coupled with inferiority complex and brand worship is the ultimate cringe
