    • Enough 3rd party studios with smaller budgets make Indie-like games for Playstation.., glad Sony is focusing on AAA blockbusters (Sony has the budget power for such)... ... let gud Sony studios build on great existing Franchises from other studios (with their direct, like Fallout New Vegas was made by Obsidian, but was a Bethesda franchise and Bethesda helped "direct" it).. ... while let the great Sony studios build new IPs or Reboots.. ... just want more 1st party "1st person view" and more "west-Rpgs" (openworld) from Sony

  • Fun fact: Vib-Ribbon was never released in the US originally in 2000 and Shawn Layden was unaware of that during that E3 speech. So there was a ton of excitement that it was being ported or remastered to come to North America, but that was not the case lol. Once Layden realized his mistake, he had Sony make a port of the game dedicated for the US that eventually released later in 2014 on PSN, and Layden apologized for his mistake.

They could have done anything with that game and it’s just rubbish. No wonder it’s for free around the world now, days gone 2 should never have been a thing to even talk about. I everyone is different on what games they like, but guys come on.. days gone was a flop and shouldn’t be on the shelves at all

What a fucking joke Sony. How about some new Tenchu games or something similar? Sony needs to remake games that players actually want revived. But Days Gone 2 sounds much better.

  • Whats the point on a remake? Sure its a great game.. but that doesnt change the fact that certain character will be gone in the next game.. and also the last game sucks (my opinion though) i rather much like it to be improved fps or something on the original tlou rather than a remake.. so yeah.. skip.

Gullible off/ We know that when a company gets bought by those greedy leeches the game is over. Either games are buggy rushed things or we get shitty DLCs. That's why i more and more tend to only go for indie games.

I decided to buy a PS4 in 2021 so I can make up for lost time, just to find out all of this horrible news, PSN shutting down for PS3, PSP, and Vita; Finding out about the unfortunate CMOS battery that could, and eventually will brick your console, and now Sony as a whole is heading down the same path Sega went. Xbox on the other end is just a plethora of many gaming experiences and benefits. I should've NEVER bought a PS4 because now I don't even want to turn it on.

  • Sony betrayed the market that kept them going in the market for a generation. So many companies now seeking to betray current fans for a reach to gain new ones because they figure so many will forgive them all too easily. Sony needs another straightening out like they got from PS3 generation when some customers finally had enough and made them pay a steep price after other potential customers snubbed them for their behavior.

    BangcatBangcatMåned siden
  • Oh ho! Looks like the thing I was telling people is going to happen early! Like I've said here and there, Sony is being pulled back on by some publishers and devs. There's a few reasons. Doing the same things and no chances on more obscure ideas and titles kills growth. Foolishly following the same titles nothing else, not even other requested old franchises is leaving fresh titles on the bench to grab more buyers of different tastes. But more so, the 'Sony Check' censorship compounds these feelings by taking away freedom and what people like making the denial of giving more of those old and new titles into being all too far removed from consumer faith or desire. Sony has that PS3 going in pompous behavior again at the start of PS5. Thinking they know better than their customers of what they want and can dictate the market to them due to PS4 success like they did after PS2 success. History repeats it's self and if they don't wise up quick, Microsoft will run away with the market as they already offer more with a huge back catalog, resume features, flexibility of playing from flash drives, and a greater respect for past software as of late. And it seems censorship is killing Sony further as even NINTENDO states they don't want to over reach on 3rd parties. I think I got about as much that I want for now for my PS4. I'll be completing my MotorStorm franchise DLC collection before PS3 store goes down but that's about as much left I'm getting on a SONY console for a while. So many good old franchises dead and gone with nothing to replace them. Sickening...

To see Hermen hulst who was once in the same position as Bend Studio completely deny them chance to create an amazing franchise like they did just shows that Sony needs a slap in the face as they right now they are riding high on PS4 success. Bottom line they are making the same fucking mistake Microsoft did with Xbox One launch.

Technically robbing their people blind and fucked up thing about it they can't be sue for this because we all agreed to their t.o.s

I left the Microsoft camp when the red rings of death appeared on the 360 and haven’t been back since. Now I’m actually debating on getting an Xbox Series X vs PS5 because it is about the game for them. If they wanna piss us off and pretend that they know what we want, they can have a shitty console generation as a result.

  • This video is just further evidence to be submitted in the case for why the AAA gaming industry needs to get hit with another '83-style crash. Sometimes, when an industry becomes this stagnant, the only way to move forward is to burn it to the ground and let the ambitious trailblazers forge a new path ahead. Unfortunately, that task falls to us, and sadly, we tend to be just as complacent and resistant to change as the studios in question. Guess there's just no winning, huh?
