PlayStation 4 Console Discussion

Recommended Posts

Yes, the gravity rush remaster is pretty well done. You’ll be able to tell it wasn’t originally console centric, but with the relative power of the Vita it holds up pretty well. 

 

Ahhh apprenticeship (pipe insulator)days. I don’t miss them, it’ll get better when you’re turned out. Do you mind if I ask what you’re apprenticing for?

Having recently played Gravity Rush 2, I'm pretty eh on the series. The beautiful art design and great traversal mechanics are really wasted on the bad mission design. The story's a bit of a mess, too.

If you enjoy Naughty Dog's brand of narrative single-player games, you'll probably like God of War. And you should definitely check out Doom if you like first-person shooters.

I'm a news reporter for my local paper, so a little bit different!

Argh, I don't know who to believe anymore.

The first Gravity Rush is a great game. The sequel makes the terrible mistake of having a bigger world to explore. The original was a tight game, whereas the sequel feels bloated, with a story that drags on and is less interesting. I loved the original ( both Vita and PS4 versions ) but ended up dropping the sequel.

That's a nice way to drum up excitement for the main event.

I imagine a lot of these announcements, especially the VR stuff, would get lost in a sea of E3 news, so I can see why they would want to get them out of  the way. Plus, it gives fans something to look forward to in the lead up to E3.

I thought their pre-show last year when they announced a bunch of games that one knew about because so few people were watching, wasn't received well in general? Personally won't bother tuning in to any of those, but I guess that's just me.

Fair enough about giving the hardcore fans something to look forward to though.

I think it came down to expectations. Once again many people hyped up the pre-show as some massive event, when all it ever was about was to give a very smaller games a time to shine outside of the main event.

I'll not bother with the VR announcements but i'll keep an eye on the other ones. I imagine the release date will be either Days Gone or Dreams.

If the Showcase will be 40 minutes long, 10 minutes of gameplay footage for each game shown in that teaser, I'll be satisfied.

Looks like MS just gave a multiplatform showcase. Easy work for Sony and Nintendo.

The weaknesses for Ms just were not addressed. Its going to a rough time for them outside of these events. 

Their strategy is to not go after users directly.

Microsoft clearly paid a lot of money to get to announce new games to make for an interesting show, covering up for the fact it has very little in the way of actual good exclusives coming.

 

They were careful with their language and as ever, didn't say which platforms each multiplatform game was coming to.

Why would they announce what platforms the games were coming to? It was a Microsoft conference, they're not about to promote Playstation.

Halo, Gears, Forza, Crackdown, Cuphead, Metro, Ori, We Happy Few... those aren't bad exclusives coming

But most of these will be coming to PC/windows as well, so I wouldn't really call them exclusive games tbh. I mean, I have a gaming PC. I'm not gonna go out and buy a new Xbox One just because they had a great conference. I can get almost all the games I thought was interesting on my PC, so that is not a good deal for Xbox.

Well it's pretty misleading to show games they way they did and you then to have to figure out whether it's also coming to the platform you own. I'm not expecting them to actually say it's coming to PS4 but when they show the last slide with the details it could show the usual (small) symbols of supported platforms. If I was the third party dev who made the game, I'd want the public to know my game was coming to as many people as possible. I'm not sure when this leaving out of information started happening, but it's still pretty annoying.

When you think about it, paying to announce third party games ahead of their competitor is a bit of a farce - surely this doesn't have any impact on sales in their favour? Same for Sony when they do it too. I can only think MS doing it here is because if they didn't, they wouldn't really have enough games to fill a presentation. Instead of people commenting on the lack of exclusive games they're instead chattering about the cool new games they've seen.

Commenting on your last bit:

This lineup is quite stale. Halo, Gears and Forza is what MS have been peddling for years now. We Happy Few is not an exclusive - also coming to PS4 and PC. Note that in your list there is not one exclusive which is a new game rather than a sequel. The gulf between Microsoft and PS4 at this stage in terms of existing/coming exclusive content is massive.

Their studio acquisitions mean the brand new exclusives are 2-3 years off but it's a big step in the right direction.

I still don't see it as misleading that they didn't put Playstation logos at the end of those multiplatform trailers. You'd never see an Xbox logo at Playstation.

Sony even blurred out an Xbox controller in one of their videos, which is hilariously petty.

I don't blame Microsoft for not wanting to advertise a competitor.

Especially when said competitor is so anti-consumer about allowing cross-play between platforms like Microsoft and Nintendo do.
