I am 36...and I think it is adorable and awesome. Can't wait to play this game. The kid in us never has to die.

This looks absolutely phenomenal, easily my most wanted game and i feel like Sony are gonna have a massive hit on their hands here, the latest trailer has a 99% like ratio and Jason Schreier is really impressed after a hands on demo, i cannot wait to get this and that dog on Astros back is so damn cute.

Would love an Astro themed DS5 controller. With various touches that depict the different PS properties throughout the years.

Forget Profound Narratives, Sony Needs To Take More Creative Risks Like Astro Bot

Team Asobi deems Astro Bot as a risk, but considering Sony's utter lack of experimentation these days, imaginative risks are what's needed.

I mean, everyone should do this IMHO. If there's a company that needs to be told to take more risks it's absolutely Ubisoft first in line. They need to redo their whole gameplay formula IMHO.

As a gamer I agree chris. However, business wise they go off of sales and they sell a crap ton each time they release yet another assassins creedlike with no changes

It comes down to what sells and what doesn’t. It’s easy to say this as a consumer, but you don’t run a business that involves the livelihoods of not only yourself, but others.

What’s a shame is back in the day there were so many “risks” taking that birthed a lot of these successful IPs you see today. With development costs and marketing being ludicrously high, they can’t afford flops.

Sony is famous for taking chances and risks on a big scale with small gaming studios. Good stuff is coming.

You mean cash in on their legacy but at the same time they are also destroying it with their multiplatform strategy. No one is going to have much nostalgia for PS5 because of their constant brand dilution.

My most wanted game, this is gonna be awesome.

Relientk777d ago

Day one! So excited for this. Astro's Playroom rules and I'm so glad were getting a longer full-fledged adventure this time.

It looks like a sure fire win.

A few interesting details.

They overhauled the physics and graphics engine
This is Astro on steroids

They will go even further with dualsense than before by letting you feel smooth or rough walls not just the floors like before

No VR in this game because that is best when you design the game with VR from the beginning

60 person team made this with 4 people assigned purely to make new dualsense mechanics
