Feigi works for Disney. Sony managed to get numbers, due to Disney movies. Amazing spiderman was their product, while the new spiderman are Disney products.It doesnt matter what revenue sharing deal they have with disney for Spiderman. Kevin Feige making Spiderman has nothing to do with digital vs theatrical only strategies. Sony could have gone with a digital hybrid solution but they didnt. And lets not even bring up WB movies, they literally finished dead last last year and have refused to release any HBO numbers.
Only reason why that movie wasn't on Disney+, is because Sony owns them. They would have out it on their service, if Sony didn't own the character.
Remember, Disney+ is Disney product.
That is what would happen to consoles. The last of us 2 benefited from the pandemic. It also benefited from ps4 numbers being higher. That is how they got those sales.Getting 40 million PS+ subs took Sony 10+ years. Gamepass has been around since 2017 and after five years its now at 20 million subs. Sony will lose money when they start out. Surely. Just like MS did. MS was no longer selling 3 million copies of Gears and Halo in the first month like they used to so it was easy for them to swallow that loss. It wont be easy for Sony to do the same. Spiderman is the perfect example. They didnt do a digital release for spiderman with a fucking pandemic ravaging through the entire planet, why would they do it just so they can one day have 40 million subscribers?
And now they are starting new journey with ps5. They don't have 120m ps5. There is a pandemic. And if they do ps5 Spiderman 2 next year with 30m console users, they got that much big sales. It took them 4 years, and close to 120m console to hit just 20m sales, especially with discounts. We aren't talking about 60$ price. No way they can hit 4m in 1 week. Especially at the 70$ price tag.
Stalker 2 is gamepass day1. It's on the description. How does that change the day1 release argument for this game.Stalker 2 didnt even come out last year. MLB isnt AAA. Hitman didnt launch on Gamepass. Mass Effect didnt launch on Gamepass. Surely this thread is about Day one sales, right?
ME did launch day1 as a 10 hour trial. That is it. It come later to the console. Not as day1 though.
Did you just call hitman 3 a B grade game.I mean surely the fact that B games like Hitman 3 and remasters like ME not launching day one on Gamepass proves my point, no? Seeing as how they eventually came to gamepass proves that MS was interested and still couldnt convince these publishers to give the day one revenue.
Ok I am done with this conversation.
