I mean, maybe? I love PS games but there are a bunch I have yet to play, like Bloodborne and TLG.
And what about ppl who love PS games and are late adopters?
Yes from an audience perspective it does make sense. Difference is that MS needs the market more than Sony do.
Either way, I want to see how the decision plays out and how it affects their hardware business, if at all.
Both Xbox and Sony need it all the same, next gen everything gets reset to 0 and they both aim for the same audience and both want to surpass beyond the console market. Its the only way to grow.
I think 0 is questionable. I mean, technically yes but digital distribution allows for some guarantee, if you know what I mean.
But yes, growth is growth and that is what all companies want.
That said, the official line on this will be interesting to see. I don't think this is a sign that Sony is jumping in completely. They've done smaller games, which make sense. MLB makes sense, even though we are unsure how it came about. Bigger titles can also make sense depending on their goals. After all, they don't even put their bigger games on PSNow day 1 and only for a short period.
I wouldn't be surprised if this is just a test to see the reaction, and then if the market does turn quicker and more drastically into MS's path in the next few years, they will be able to transition smoothly and quickly. so like, baby steps. Because their current strategy clearly still works for them.
