    That's basically it, yeah. Everything costs more and everyone has less to spend. They will have designed and put PSVR2 into production prior to everything going down so it's not even like they "pitched the product wrong". There's really no story or alternative take here - they won't sell as many as they could have done right away but over time I expect it will do quite well.

    I'm being completely serious. Why are you so riled up all the time?
  3. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    With all due respect, what are you talking about? PSVR was well supported and sold 5 million units, the second best selling headset of all time. And now Sony are following up by releasing a sequel, something they never did for the Vita. Being so angry all the time isn't good for your blood pressure, you know.

    Hardly a failure, you're writing it off too soon. It will get cheaper down the line and I can see it enjoying reasonable success across the generation. It was clear from the original PSVR that skimping on specs had dire consequences down the line (note that the original PSVR wasn't actually cheap after you bought the necessary camera and recommended controllers, yet it was still a low-fi device). They need a headset that is actually capable and will last the generation. Also consider that this will have been designed a while ago, before world events led to the record levels of inflation we have now. Their options were to either sell at a big loss or charge more, so not really sure how you can say the price tag is a dumb move.

    Worked for the PS5 though, that's £480 now and still flying off the shelves. I think VR is facing a few problems right now - it doesn't have the novelty factor it did last generation and it's a "nice to have" supplementary accessory (which is going to be a hard sell in the current climate). In terms of value though you're actually getting a much better deal than you did with the original headset (in terms of specs and the included controllers). Last thing to say - I wouldn't call this top of the line VR at all in terms of price, at least not compared to some of the PC offerings.
  6. Yeah, but like, actually it's not. Not in the slightest. I say that as someone who has played tonnes of Ubisoft open world games. What you just said couldn't be further from the truth.

    This looks like the kind of game which will be £25 before long. So no, I won't be playing at launch.
  8. One thing I've noticed is that many people who had become bored by the same old Zelda formula (like me) loved BOTW. Although obviously not everyone. But this board in particular has a number of people who absolutely love game after game that Nintendo produce, regardless of how conserved the games were before. It doesn't matter if there have been several generations of games that play out very similar, some people don't like change, or rather become attached to what the series comprised. Each to their own though, I'm just glad the overwhelming majority thought BOTW was the second coming as it'll no doubt mean this is what main Zelda games will be like now, at least for the foreseeable future.
  9. I bounced off Fenyx Rising. While it's interesting for a while it ultimately is too easy and the story isn't compelling enough. It has the old Ubisoft bloat to it too.
  10. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    They are major releases though, they're the best selling games every year. The point is that PlayStation and Xbox get these games so there's less of a gap to fill.
  11. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    I think as well already noted you have big games coming like Spiderman 2, FFXVI and possibly FFVII-2, then you have the usual annual fodder like COD, FIFA (whatever the new series will be called), and so on, as well as PSVR2. I don't think people will think at the end of year that there's been a lack of content by any means.
  12. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    Luckily Sony don't need to make too much, they have third party support.
  13. Playstation 5 Console Discussion

    This is really good. I was at EGX last year and I had a go on the Microsoft accessibility controller, there's a lot of thought that goes into these controllers and they make them super customisable to cover a range of different needs. You could tell the engineers/developers talking you through it were really passionate about it.
  14. Sealed, revived. Whatever's going on they don't seem to be able to properly kill the bastard.
  15. You're right. Then when Breath of the Wild comes along it's genuinely exciting because it feels fresh and different.
