why? It's not wrong to be critical.
I LOVE Gears of war trilogy and I have no idea how can anyone who loved those original games, like anything about gears 5.
Isn't it universally disliked? how is my opinion now an outlier ?
Saying it's garbage with no other points is not being critical.

It's fine to be critical if you actually ctric it. Otherwise it's just inflammatory nonsense.

but it is garbage. Hot trash f You will.
I hated it and it ruined gears of war... that enough ?
As a game on it's own ? It's OK and even pretty good looking.

edit: Anyway - it ha nothing to do with the topic. Bloodborne is great. Would be amazing 4k60-120 :(

Stop falling for whatever you read.
4ch rumors, games coming or not coming on PC, vetted insider sources confirming Silent Hill being made by Japan Studio and leaks from people that simply can't and do not know this stuff.

Lance McDonald said something about Sony's contract with Bluepoint ending and people seem to have lost their goddamn minds. Bluepoint's a third party developer and Sony contracted them out to make a game. Once the game was completed and shipped then obviously the contract would end for that particular project. It's like some folks think a contract would stay open forever even after the game was finished and shipped.

Why in the blue fuck some folks are taking this to mean that Sony and Bluepoint are no longer interested in working with one another I don't have a friggin' clue. Furthermore it's funny to see the fanboys come out of the woodwork asking for Microsoft to snatch up Bluepoint.

maybe so, but those would be disastrous from a PR perspective for Sony

if Sony is literally going to shrink this gen (outside of support for Jade Raymond’s Haven studio), then all the complacency speculation will be true

I just can’t imagine Microsoft getting nothing but big PR wins like that with Sony doing absolutely nothing

Face it, Sony is one Phil Harrison hire away from comedy

Did the original leak ever say Bluepoint was doing the Bloodborne port? I'm pretty sure it didn't.

I still don't personally believe a port is happening, but Bluepoint's non-involvement doesn't confirm or de-confirm anything.

No worries, I just laughed when I was reading this thread and that post started to sound familiar :D

But yeah, it's been amusing to watch people form some crazy narratives just because someone on Twitter mentioned a contract ending between a publisher and developer for a project. Something that literally happens all the time was commented on and the fanboys came out of the woodwork.

Microsoft to get Bluepoint to give Bloodbourne the Demons Souls Remake treatment and only release it on GamePass.

Yeah I know, but can ye imagine the meltdowns?!

Not re-upping a contract with Bluepoint would be a huge mistake. Sony should acquire them and start “organically” growing that studio.

they are very efficient, create brilliant remakes, and launched a next-gen game when nobody else could

hopefully this info is inaccurate. If not, what is wrong with Sony? Making hand over fist money in a launch year yet they are being extremely conservative with re-investment
Maybe they are going for a bigger move? I doubt it but who knows, so far bluepoint has only really done remakes though and according to people over the last few days sony isn't supposed to do that anymore lol.

Sony is turning into arrogant Sony. This is starting to remind me strongly of the PS3 days. Really sad.
Can you specify how? what have they done that we can confirm that makes you think of the PS3 days? did they come out priced hundreds of dollars higher than the competition and tell you to get a second job to pay for it? We don't know what's driving business decisions behind the scenes and we also don't know how many of these rumors are even true so it just seems silly to think that way. It's your right obviously I'm not saying you aren't entitled to your opinion I'd just be curious as to what specific things lead you to believe they are going back to the arrogance of the PS3 days other than some people constantly complaining on message boards?

I am sure no one will be able to answer it objectively and point out even 3 things that are Sony's fault. The best they can come up with is "Why make a TLOU remake?!" (as if it won't sell well and make Sony money).

Most are just riding the "doom and gloom" hype train at the moment and have no logical explanations to back up their claims.

You know I think we should start a thread and compile a list of rumors, their sources and whether they're right or wrong and next to that a list of big announcements that haven't been predicted anywhere.

I haven't see a single rumor, insider scoop, or "this is happening!" tweet be accurate for about a year now.

Meanwhile there has been big gaming news - Zeni purchase being the obvious one, that dropped as a bombshell that not a single "insider" or analyst predicted. No one predicted HZD to PC then when that was announced they've predicted everything going to PC except Days Gone which is in fact going to PC! No one predicted The Show on GP... These are big news items not a single insider managed to leak or hint.

I note Discord is still independent while MS bought an AI company for $20bn. Sega seems to be doing its own thing.

But according to this forum these were all "done deals". The latest "done deals" are MS/Nintendo and Kojima making an Xbox exclusive... no doubt these will be forgotten next week when someone decides to post some other faked fever dream idea as fact.

So fed up of the forum just being a console war zone over rumors that have no basis in reality. The moderation needs to be stronger really - because its getting ridiculous.

Holy shit. This kind of thing should be bannable shouldn't it? I mean there's enough stupid rumors going around and then people are just copy/pasting comments on those rumors! What the fuck is real now?

Bloodborne PC is still coming and it's now rumored to be the very next Sony port of the "whole slate" thing right after Days Gone.
Not sure what this guy thinks he "debunked" exactly, in all honesty, if not a bunch of inaccurate guesses (like who was working on it) people made about the original rumor.

Somehow modding a Playstation game is supposed to make him an authority about what's releasing and what not, apparently.

Imagine when ps4 a few generations later gets shut down. Games like these will be tossed into the void.

Yikes.

Arrogant sony never left, why do people keep telling themselves this?

He debunked the original rumours that were going around entirely...He clearly says that it might still happen. It's quite clear in the OP.

The original "leak"/rumor was never about Bluepoint to begin with. That was some side guessing.

Soundtrack was butchered as well.
Original demons souls soundtrack sounds like it was recorded in bathroom. Seriously that game was cheaply made. Listen to flamelurker soundtrack as am example.

Flamelurker is a great example of how much the tracks have been altered for the worst. They changed previously dark and disturbing pieces to some random "gotta be epic" pieces. It feels so forced, it is ridiculous. You can barely recognize the original tracks.

"Dark and disturbing" is not. It was cheaply made with instruments out of synch. If you know someone who knows music ask them to listen both scores then come back to us

Every day

Sony is doomed thread

it is pretty boring now every thread is the same

carbon copy

Wasting time and energy discussing rumors

and pretending they are facts
What else is Team Green gonna talk about? Besides Halo, most of the games are years away from releasing. Its either Gamespass fellatio, or Sony doomed talk. Pick one.

Who cares what a professional thinks? Music is a matter of taste and if he likes the old ones more nothing can change it.

That's not the point, of our argument. It's fine if he likes the original score. But he said bluepoint butchered the original soundtrack. Follow the conversation next time before butt in

I give it less than 3 months for people to be sucking Jimbo Ryans cockadoodledoo and begging for more.

Lol, while I don't plan on sucking anything I do agree the doom-shit-posting will quickly give way to praise when Sony does their inevitable Summer event. Add to that more VR news and its launch lineup, updates to services and who knows what else and yeah Sony will be just fine.

The more damning info is the Bluepoint + Sony breakup if true. I'm genuinely curious now about what kind of high level strategy they have in mind for their WWS because it seems like corporate ideology has fully taken root at Sony HQ and that never turns out well.

It's hard to believe all this Bad news about Sony.

They are hardly stupid enough to go into the PS5 with less studios making AAA games.

What happened to organic growth? Surely they got something up their sleeve?

You know you have to learn music for a reason right?
You know you have to hit the right notes, right?

Have you even watch talents show? They all think they are great singers I guess there Is nothing the judges can do. Because they all think they sound great
