Playing it now! The game is pretty big. I like that there is a lot of hidden stuff. It is a lot like Nier Automata more than I thought. But this game has some verticality to it. Recommended

Shift Up's recent release, Stellar Blade, proves that not all PlayStation exclusives need huge sales figures to be successful.

That impossible to say without knowing each companies individual expectations. For example Arrowhead clearly had a set expectation for Helldivers 2 but the results were far beyond their expectations. Another exclusive for KT (Rise of the Ronin) became their best seller of all time. Was this their expectations? Who knows but I doubt it.

Stellar Blade did very well for a new IP that happened to be exclusive. Did i expect it to do this well? Not sure but what's more important is Shift Up's expectations.

Every game is different. I definitely recommend Stellar Blade.

Cool, I still need to pick this game up at some point.

Same here, enjoyed the demo but just haven't got around to buying the game yet.

Abnor_Mal18d ago

You’re better than me, I downloaded the demo but never got around to playing.

Sony has found a wealth of these outside studios who have all made awesome games wile they are going through a drought 1st party wise

MrNinosan18d ago

Like they've done since 1993. Nothing new.
Sony Microsoft, Valve, Epic all rely on third party games.

Einhander197218d ago

This is very very true.

People don't realize (or purposely forget) that many of the games they think of when they think PlayStation were 2'nd party games published by PlayStation. Insomniac only recently became a PlayStation 1'st party for example, as well as early Naughty Dog games ect.

2'nd and 3'rd party games have always been the backbone of every single console generation.

What's new is that this is the longest drought of 1st party >quality< banger games.

neutralgamer199218d ago

Yes they all rely on 3rd party deals the difference is sony does it to give mies time to their 1st party studios. MS did it once during 360 and that was their most successful generation.

1972

Onpy during 360/ps3 exclusive battle became mainstream. That's these companies went out of their way to mention the word exclusive
