This game is going to be like Marmite on toast.

I dont believe in the new audience either . We already have some of the most mainstream titles in the genre such as GOW .

It is highly unlikely to be able to compete against that without the best realisation ever , wich is nearly impossible from multiplatform to begin with .

So what's the point of all of those action games ditching their niche and trying to all cannibalize a segment they'd never own and take away from Gow and a few others ?

Easy there is none . You'll just alienate your fanbase , and the public you're trying to attract doesnt even care .
