I think Xbox is not necessary anymore. Their upcoming games are going to be awesome but playstation+Steam deck with Gamepass will be the best combo. Love couch gaming.I gotta say.. i own a xss and ps4 pro, i prefer PlayStation I'm not gonna lie... But even as a PS fan i refuse to care about anything until it's announced and we're seeing gameplay videos.
Big reason why i don't care about any upcoming xbox games teehee (with obvious exceptions like infinite)
The lack of Japanese games and RPGs is kinda scary, Sony is slowly giving up on what made Playstation strong exciting and powerful.
I hope one is a good RPG with interesting world and a game like Path of exile or Diablo, it's shame that we dont have more games from that genre.
It was and it wasn’t. Days Gone is technically a sequel to Syphon Filter as it is all part of the same world and continues on from the events of the final game, while also being classed as a new IP. The new game they are making might also follow this route with the story that was setup at the end of Days Gone.Days Gone ... was ... a new IP.
Bend are making a new IP currently.
Tekken, GT, MGS, FF, DQ, DMC, Ico, SOTC, Demon Souls, Haunting Ground, Project Zero and so on is what made Playstation. Not stuffs like Deathloop or some Marvel.I disagree greatly. You simply want that to be the fucking case, you don't have anything objective to support any of that. It would be like me wanting The Getaway 3 and saying some fucking shit like "giving up on what made Playstation STONG and POWERFUL" lol That series didn't do shit compared to other IP, yet I'm going to use that game as an example to illustrate several things.
Team Ico's third outing debuts at No.7, while Dead Rising 4 stalks in at No.4, leaving Call of Duty to reclaim the top spotwww.gamesindustry.biz
The game moved less then 2 million (even that might be debatable as I haven't seen anything beyond the figure of 1.26 million), but for it to outsell SoTC and still rank number 7, sell bellow 2 million...with that many fucking delays, nahhhhhhh SSFOX, that isn't powerful, that isn't something that if no longer being made would some how make them weak vs strong etc.
Those simply are not strong or powerful numbers my guy, nothing that would be some requirement to stay afloat.
The Getaway in comparison moved 4 million units and this is 4 million PS2 days 4 million lol Yet the sequel moved less units and 3 was ultimately cancelled. This is business fox, this is how this works. They kept lots of those Japanese games alive LONGER then The Getaway series, they tried....thats all you can really ask and I'd argue they kept those concepts going longer then I feel they really needed to. Several publishers already move more units on PS with several IP, Yakuza, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy, Persona etc. It means they already have that user base buying PS primarily, thus making any game in those genres is sorta pointless, they already have a strong base there.
Dark Cloud, Rouge Galaxy, Wild Arms, White Knight Chronicles and many more might be classics and I don't disagree with that notion, but I disagree with the argument that they were "strong" or "powerful", i see no evidence of that and just the opposite.
So they have a good amount of games in the past to really show what the community really wants and I believe they are wise to invest more in Team Asobi as they are showing results. You are more so asking for a wish sir, you are not really giving anything valid to argue those are powerful or strong concepts that Sony needs or something, I don't see anything to support that.
I too want some old shit lol I want The Getaway 3. They already love open world design, have some solid teams that can do it wonders and can drive a dark narrative with drug trafficking, the concept has solid numbers to support it existing, but even then I get why Sony doesn't do a 3rd title.
The market is also saturated with those types of games, they already move the most of 3rd party games of that concept etc. I don't just go out and post shit like "strong and powerful" as if The Getaway made Playstation exist lol
They care, but only about a few, namely Final Fantasy,Resident Evil, Persona 5,FROM i guess.I'm prepared for all of the hateful messages I'm going to get but I am just not really excited for much of Sony'w current offerings at all because they are no longer a real publisher of AAA or AA Japanese games nor is the PS5 anything like the PS1/PS2 in terms of Japanese output from Sony or from 3rd parties.
It would be fantastic if they could become one again but I don't see that happening because the current executives just don't seem to care about that region very much I guess although I'd love to be wrong about that. It really sucks to be in the minority but at least I have the other Japanese 3rd party publishers games to look forward to.
Tekken, GT, MGS, FF, DQ, DMC, Ico, SOTC, Demon Souls, Haunting Ground, Project Zero and so on is what made Playstation. Not stuffs like Deathloop or some Marvel.
but for the most part Japanese games is what made me love Playstation
i enjoyed Spiderman but it's not even in my top 10 games on PS4
