Kind of had a feeling we wouldn't see a Hot Shots/Everybody's Golf entry on the PS5.
Confirmed. Official statement:
I‘m excited to see how far he goes, and how many here will keep defending the choices.I was even told you guys for 2 years that Jim Ryan is destroying PlayStation brand.
Someone has to stop him.
Jim Ryan actually is a Cáncer.
It's getting to the point where I feel like all this talk about Sony not caring about Japanese games and studios are true. Are we heading toward a industry where there's less and less space for cult classic games?
Games like Phantom Dust, Gravity Rush and SOTC are those games that really didn't have a great amount of sales but they among the best developed games. Games like these you can tell were made from the heart. They don't fit any real genre.
What do you call Phantom Dust? It's an arena based, real-time combat card deck game. I mean WTF.
Gravity Rush - semi open world melee combat, zero g beat em up and collectathon story-adventure anime(?) game.
SoTC - open barren world boss medley action game.
I mean who's gonna take the risks now.
Fuck man, I'm glad Microsoft is stepping up their efforts but even so, a lot of the games they are releasing are not new IPs. business-wise it makes sense, but name a new IP other than Starfield maybe this year and what...Avowed? coming in like 2024? and The Gunk?
The industry needs to maintain the dichotomy between Sony games and Microsoft games. I want both.
I can’t wait until we see Horizon, God of War, Uncharated.At with Microsoft, they went into crazy acquisition mode because they realized Halo, Gears, FORZA were getting long in the tooth. They'll have a bunch of variety in their first party efforts this generation. I think it's fair to question the potential quality of those products but that's still more exciting than Sony's next cinematic action game.
I can’t wait until we see Horizon, God of War, Uncharated.
oh wait they had almost as many games in those 2 series as Halo had, so it should be no surprise.
Project Mara. If we are talking about third parties(The Gunk? really??), we have Exo One and Shredders this year.Fuck man, I'm glad Microsoft is stepping up their efforts but even so, a lot of the games they are releasing are not new IPs. business-wise it makes sense, but name a new IP other than Starfield maybe this year and what...Avowed? coming in like 2024? and The Gunk?
Yeah, I get cancelled every few days whenever I complain about Sony.
You're right. All of those studios were a huge reason why I turned into a Sony fan. I mean i feel like everyone was a Sony fan in the PS2 days because everything was a PS exclusive. MGS, FF, GTA, DMC. You had to be. But they really got me in the ps3 era when they started investing in first party studios and as much as I liked KZ, Uncharted and Gow, it was MAG, Socom, Warhawk, SOTC, Ico and Motorstorm that really made me a fan.
I remember always arguing with people who called Sony a one note publisher with a focus on cinematic games because my experience with the ps3 was far more varied. Racing games, online shooters, shit like Flower and Journey, car combat games like Twisted Metal. Team Ico games that were unlike anything else out there that wouldnt fit into any genre.
I dont want to insult any Sony fans, but how many even remember Pursuit Force on the PSP. It was like a blast from the past. Somethign you would play in the arcades or on a sega system. Wipeout. Sony used to be so much more than they are now. And it's depressing.
No disagreement hereUeda is still around with genDesign so his next work will be multi-platform.
I'm not trying to knock Media Molecule and I applaud Sony or supporting their creativity, but I can't imagine Dreams was a profitable venture. I just don't understand why the can't invest in more mid-tier development ventures and expect modest returns. They are really devaluing the brand in my eyes.
JAPAN Studio will be re-centered to Team ASOBI, the creative team behind Astro's PLAYROOM, allowing the team to focus on a single vision and build on the popularity of Astro’s PLAYROOM.
In addition, the roles of external production, software localization, and IP management of JAPAN Studio titles will be concentrated within the global functions of PlayStation Studios.
I was their biggest fan from the PS 1, 2, and 3.This sucks. This is the opposite way I wanted Sony to go. Getting tired of their cinematic movie games even though that’s what’s giving them success
My point is, they dont have smaller JAPANESE titles anymore, everything is just western inspired, i can go on steam and find 100 similar games to the titles you mentioned. where are unique games like Tokyo Jungle? How is Sony different from xbox now? its the same shit... I dont give a shit about western smaller titles, most of us who liked ps2-3 niche games dont.This has nothing to do with your personal view on the game. Its irrelevant.
Its a smaller title that exist.
Thats the point. Not your feelings on the title or something.
more like japanese market hate consolesWhat a shame. They really hate the japanese market now, huh?
Guess they're gonna focus on selling their pozzed, boring, muh graphics exclusives in the west and leave Japan to Nintendo and Valve.
They made Demon's Souls though
At this point I'm all for it, especially because Sony is asking for it.
I hope all those ex-Japan Studio developers form or get hired by other studios and that Sony completely and utterly lose contact with the Japanese video game industry.
