    Sony aquires "Insomniac Games"

    Which studios do you think Sony gonna acquire?

    in Sony Discussion on 01 July 2019

    I beleive Sony is trying to keep developers away from Microsoft (and Google to a lesser extent). Since E3 2018, Microsoft has sought to buy up developers to make a 1st party line up. I expect Sony and soon Nintendo will buy up developers to make sure Microsoft doesn't get them. Insomniac is the most obvious. They've worked with Sony mostly but did make Sunset Overdrive for the XBox One. They...

    New Business Model for console

    in Sales Discussion on 19 June 2019

    This scenario is way too unrealistic to really vote one way or the other. If they get no royalties than, from the companies perspective, option 2 is the only viable option since you'd try to sell the system for $200 more. If royalties are taken, then option 1 is what will happen (assuming no competition which would affect the price in the real world). It's just outlandish. From the consumer's...

    Bleeding edge gameplay actually looks fun.

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 June 2019

    It's an interesting idea but it leaves a lot to be desired. I think the 4v4 style doesn't work that well in a melee centric game because the gameplay will end up being "get to the spot we need to cap and brawl." It works better in a shooter because distance adds the needed depth to the gameplay. As a death match style game, it would work better. Character designs are also lacking. ...

    When will the Zelda BOTW Sequel Release? Predict!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 17 June 2019

    Early 2021, but honestly it could release as early as Late 2020. It seems like it's quite far along actually. I'm sure they didn't want to give any idea for a date after delaying Animal Crossing and Metroid Prime 4. Early 2021 would put it about 4 years after the first game which would be quite a long time for a game that is reusing assets. ...

    2020: The peek of the Switch?

    fatslob-:O said: Nearly zero chance of that happening without price cut and I'm not counting on it happening either in the long-term. By the end of this year, the vast majority of Nintendo's leading game franchises will have released thus the Switch will likely end up experiencing sagging sales next year ...

    Ok, E3 presentations are over. Who won?

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 June 2019

    Late to the party but Nintendo was the pretty obvious winner. Most consistent of the bunch. Honorable Mention to SE for the FF7 demonstration. Was the best demonstration of the show for sure. Just the rest of the conference was lackluster (Avengers should have also been a gameplay demo). WAY too many CG trailers, mobile games and DLC. It was pretty lackluster overall. I'm mostly disapointed in...

    Switch overtakes total PS4 sales in Japan, in less than half the time

    in Sales Discussion on 09 June 2019

    0D0 said: VideoGameAccountant said: "Nintendo's homeconsoles have declined as long as I exclude the Wii." I have a feeling you are starting from the conclusion and working backwards. You want to say Nintendo is in decline and the Wii and Switch throw a wrench in that. Thus, you redefine them so your thesis can be right. If your thesis requires you to remove information or ignore...

    How would you rate Microsoft's E3 conference out of ten?

    in Gaming Discussion on 09 June 2019

    5 Microsoft had a good variety of titles but nothing I would say is stellar. It all looked like "this might be fun". Doesn't help we already knew about a lot of the titles. Battletoads looks very bad (might play well though). The Gears trailer was awful though the Escape one was fine. Would have rather have seen gameplay though. What is weird is there seems to be a lot of games but Scarlet...

    PS5>XB4>NS units sold next gen

    in Sales Discussion on 15 May 2019

    A bit of an old thread, but people still haven't figured out that the past generations does not predict future generation success. The last system you could have done this is the PS2 and Nintendo's handheld line. Otherwise, no major console manufacturer has held the top spot for more than a generation since Gen 6. On that note, I think people are sleeping on XBox. As someone pointed out,...

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 May 2019

    The correct answer is we don't know. That said, it's typical the market leader tends to do significantly worse the following generation. Was true of the PS2 to PS3, Wii and 360 to XBox One and Wii U. You can speculate the reason why but I believe it's because the loser have a better idea of what went wrong where the winners tend to rest on their laurels and make stupid decisions. Sony has had...
