after all this crazy mess, I decided to get gamepass and play the damn thing. It’s a great game. Deserved all the praise it got. The animation and art-style is incredible. Hats off to the developer.
During the PS4 they created more franchises and continued almost all of their PS3 ones.
Except that's straight horseshit if you actually look at it. During PS4 they created Horizon Zero Dawn, Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, Bloodborne, Until Dawn, etc. Virtually every IP created during PS3 also had a sequel during PS4 too so suggesting they didn’t release as many of their own games is also bullshit. You can laugh at VR all you like but that's not playing it safe.
There's only one company playing it safe and not doing these things and relying mostly on acquired established IPs. By your own logic they should have been on fire with the increased competition and not 'playing it safe'.
Everyone whose played it has given the game near universal praises here and elsewhere. All pretenses aside, it's genuinely a good, fun, character action / rhythm hybrid game.
What's "retail", you mean releases? For every dumb move game there are way more VR games during PS4. Try listing these '90 retail' from PS3.It’s horseshit if you have a bad memory I guess. Counting eight years from launch, PS3 had over 90 retail from Sony themselves, probably well over 100. I forget all of the dumb PS Move games they released. And over 30 new IPs. And this isn’t counting any of their digital only games that were also from Sony and also new IPs.
50 what? New Games? 'Retail'? You seem to be struggling to quantify whatever it is you are quantifying.PS4 on the other hand saw around 50 from Sony in that same time frame and less than twenty new IPs.
So why are you shitting on gamepass and not steam? Unfortunately it's the way of the future, and it won't help when Sony removes their Disc PS5 sku.It's the best 1st party game of the year (so far) and most likely their best exclusive game in the last 18 months....yet they can't bother to print it on a disc? It's crap like this that doesn't make me feel bad for them if they claim it did not sell well enough outside of Gamepass.
Because I haven't seen a disc based PC game in over 10 years...? Not every region has blinding internet speeds or can afford $300 HDD upgrades. It may be the future 10 years from now but it's currently the present where disc based games are still VERY much a thing and leading in sales.So why are you shitting on gamepass and not steam?

That's a pretty crappy excuse you have there.
How is it crappy?
Are you not aware that Sony is getting rid of their Disc PS5 and will introduce a separate drive? Xbox seems to be pushing the S more than ever, another digital console, and PC made that move over a decade ago.
You're ranting about something that's slowly becoming obsolete, it's time you accepted some games will not have physical releases.
This is what gaming should be. Fucking hats off to you man, glad you tried it and ultimately enjoyed it. It's a brilliant game, and thats what's important. Not slimy marketing execs or rumour mill "reporters" talking shit.after all this crazy mess, I decided to get gamepass and play the damn thing. It’s a great game. Deserved all the praise it got.

Apparently he was only reporting "what he heard". Whether "what he heard" is the factual case or not is anyone's guess since MS no longer reports numbers or talks about financial successes anymoreWait so even in his “walk it back” video he’s still claiming HiFi didn’t make the money it needed to make
He learned nothing. Also why did he cut his hair?
there are in-betweenThen: "Based on what I've heard... it just straight up didn't make the money it needed to make"
Now: "errr... I don't know what it needed to do" (ie he has no idea how much it cost or how much it needed to make).
Either he has sources telling him that Hi Fi Rush didn't perform as well as expected or doesn't have sources telling him that stuff.
There's no in-between.
