Sony Officially Kills UMD Format

This should not be coming as a huge surprise, but the demise of Sony's UMD format for movies is going away faster than the Mini Disc got shelved for music. This week Sony quietly announced a new entertainment pak called the Memory Stick Entertainment Packs (MSEP) that contained movies on a Sony Memory stick, and many paused to wonder what that meant for the UMD. And now it is official.

Most of the MK4 cast is far worse than Stryker.

Is that multiplayer EVER going to drop? Like good lord... I love Naughty Dog so much, they're definitely in my top 5, if not top 3 developers. At this point, it's just getting ridiculous though. There's never even been a trailer for it, right? What the heck is going on with that? Just kind of baffled by the lack of info because I was looking forward to that quite a bit before Last of Us 2 even dropped.

Last gen, 2 years after the PS4 released we had Uncharted 4 but we didn't get a new IP from them.

3 years after the PS5 dropped and we've had nothing new from NaughtyDog and still no sign of a new IP just a remake we really didn't need.

The only thing we know is coming is an online focused multiplayer game and while Factions was a great addition to the original TLOU it's not like any of us wanted a full on multiplayer game spin off to take time away from other things. We could have at least had a reveal trailer of their new IP by now by their second team if the focus wasn't so split.

Feels like they care more about the TV show, it's all they ever talk about even with the writers / actors strike going on.

Goes to show how boring this gen will turn out everyone's talking forever to craft their graphical masterpiece that the generation will be over by the time the next hitters come out

Markusb331d 3h ago

starting to get fairly fed up with all the lack of communication from 1st party. Even when the last of us started its hype was more interesting, showing the ants etc and no one knew what the game was about.
Being totally in the dark is much worse

"Just kind of baffled by the lack of info because I was looking forward to that quite a bit before Last of Us 2 even dropped."

Looks like the rumors surrounding that game been in development hell are accurate.

At least they understand when a product isn’t up to snuff.

Sam's like they had to scrap it and start again after Bungies assessment

crazyCoconuts1d 8h ago

Based on their last update and some reading between the lines, it seemed like the work they had done was deemed as scrappable by the Bungie gods. I mean, factions was always kinda niche and this GaaS religion is probably looking for it to be a mainstream hit.
I'm guessing it's scrapped altogether. Maybe ND reworks it to be more accessible to the masses, but Last of Us doesn't seem to fit into the prototypical 3rd person shooter for the masses mold imo
