    Are the PS+ "free games" the crack that will bring down the industry?

    in Gaming Discussion on 03 January 2014

    I think it's a very dated and backward thinking view point to see something like PS+ as a danger to the industry - instead of viewing it as a huge opportunity to change the way we buy games in a way only beneficial to the consumer - and in turn those who supply the consumer. Much like how Netflix has removed everything consumers disliked about TV, and is now thriving, and Spotify is convincing...

    PS4 sold last year 530,000 units in the UK in five weeks (outsold Xbone by 166,000)

    in Sales Discussion on 01 January 2014

    Know quite a few people over here with a PS4 already - I'd have bought mine if anywhere had stock lol. Really feels like its got a sorta hype and popularity about it that the 360 had 3-4 years ago! Hope the PS4 online presence sorta translates through into this, don't know if I'll get about to playing competitively again but 360 always had the bigger communities for games....

    PS4 has already outdone Wii's launch holiday by almost 500k (with 1.5 weeks to go)

    in Sales Discussion on 31 December 2013

    I think it'll slow down with the pace of the Wii in a few months - the Wii's xmas sales were probably supply constrained to that number (albeit so are PS4's I guess). But PS4 got more units out in that space of time, as Sony could pump them out faster I guess. Ps4 will continue to sell strong but Wii sales I doubt, mainly because I think the Xbox One is a very worthy competitor who will steal...

    Ninja Theory to quit console development and shift to mobile, report claims

    in Gaming Discussion on 24 November 2013

    It always makes me sad to see Ninja Theory struggle as much as they have. I'm from the UK so the reality is we've seen a lot of our video game development talent dry up in the past 15 years, and it'd suck to see another team forced out. While they upset a lot of DMC fans the reality is they made 3 really good of which no were ever really 'hits'. I really liked Enslaved and think it had...

    what would you prefer AAA games or indie games?

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 November 2013

    Dungeon defenders was all me and my housemates played for a year. Incredible game. Enjoyed playing it with them more then i did Mass Effect 2 and whatever else AAA i played at the time. When I get a PS4 I'll play more Resogun until Infamous comes out in all honesty, will give Killzone and FIFA a good whirl but neither will get the play time of Resogun. I don't think I'd really mind in all...

    PS4 and XBONE are in for the same drought as WiiU

    in Gaming Discussion on 17 November 2013

    The 2014 line up for PS4 and Xbox one is pretty sketchy at the moment - at least in the early months. Drive Club, Infamous and Titan Fall are likely to be some quality exclusives, but thats 2 games in 3 months. If the consoles launch strong though I'm sure some of the games delayed from 2013 will be clamouring for a release around then though - Watch Dogs, The Crew etc as well as stuff like...

    One Million PS4 units Sold In 24 Hours!!!

    in Sony Discussion on 17 November 2013

    Wow.... I wasn't expecting this from the USA. If PS4 can post these sort of figures from what was it's weakest region then I'd imagine it could be even more amazing in Europe and Japan. I find it quite odd, feels to me like waiting a few years longest to get the new console cycle in has really made people want the things. And while Xbox One figures could be pretty strong too Sony appear to...

    Something I think some people need to remember about nextgen

    in Gaming Discussion on 16 November 2013

    I lol'd. In reality I don't think the next gen curve should be below the current gen one - given what I've read about BF4, FIFA 14, NBA 2K14 and AC4. They are a - somewhat small - improvement. Just gonna take a year until we really see the first games properly only developed on next gen hardware....

    Has the "million seller" status lost its significance?

    in Sales Discussion on 16 November 2013

    DanneSandin said:It's a great question and there's quite a few great answers in the thread, but the OP cuts it all too short by answering the very question being asked... I wonder what publisher still profits by selling 1m copies of a game. Nintendo must have back in the Wii days, but does that hold true now as well? And I guess indies are happy as Hell when selling 1m; but is there anyone...

    CoD: Ghosts a Huge Flop?

    in Sales Discussion on 16 November 2013

    I assume figures were corrected a bit here, but the USA launch of BLOPS2 was 5.5m first week. Ghosts will probably get to 4-4.5m once you include next gen versions first weeks. It's a decline yes, but expected given how much of the consumer dollar GTAV reaped prior to its released. COD, BF4, AC4, FIFA14 are all suffering from GTA's dominance (And also artificually lower due to next gen console...

    Has the "million seller" status lost its significance?

    in Sales Discussion on 16 November 2013

    There are games this gen that didn't hit break even at 5m sales - Red Dead Redemption, GTAV and GTAVI. I would imagine it's true for games like Destiny that anything below 5m will be considered a failure and really they're expecting to hit the 10m+ mark. Destiny is a bit of an exception as Activision really only put all of nothing into their launches, and they're putting absolutely...

    Sony May Gross About $100 Per Console, Teardown Shows

    in Sony Discussion on 16 November 2013

    I would expect the raw materials to come under $400, but when you throw in shipping, marketing, distribution, returns, retailer cut etc it probably comes out a small loss covered by game sales / PS+. The days of a $200+ loss per console are definitely gone though, seems like all 3 consoles this gen are being sold and something close to an effective break even - or profit....

    Here there be a reasoned discourse on potential Uncharted 4 sales

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 November 2013

    If the PS4 matches Xbox One in the USA and then outperforms it in Europe more then the PS3 did then the 360, then I'd guess UC4 could see about 6m lifetime sales. It's going to be a big hit but ultimately it's limited by how fast the PS4 sell before next Xmas. I reckon strong PS4 hardware sales could see it go to 6m, which imo would be above the PS4 versions of other big xmas hits next year...

    PS4 and Xbox One both have shitz lineup .... why waste your money.

    in Gaming Discussion on 15 November 2013

    I wanna go for #1 on the Resogun leaderboards so need to get it at some point soon. Not getting Ps4 at launch but most likely Jan / Feb once the first batch of inevitably faulty consoles are out the way :p. Next gen FIFA looks crazy good too....

    Will PS4 push Killzone/Infamous to new heights?

    in Sony Discussion on 05 April 2013

    Hard to tell as bundling skews things - Resistance and Motorstorm both racked up huge sales through bundling in the end. I think both Killzone and InFamous will benefit greatly though, provided the PS4 launch is solid in general (Good price, marketing, suppply). I'd liken it more to Uncharted's launch on the Ps3, which had a lowish opening week but gained momentum week on week as the...

    Sony exclusives that went multiplat have largely failed

    in Sony Discussion on 04 April 2013

    I think compairing the 'big hitter' Ps2 exclusives to how their sequels faired in the next generation is a bit unfair. The reality is the PS2 was such a behemoth that exclusivity didn't lose you a lot of sales, whereas cutting out the 360 market this gen would lose you a lot of sales. I think the lower overall sales of games like Tekken, Devil May Cry, Final Fantasy etc is just part of how...

    So, what game studios left are considered worth getting excited over?

    in Gaming Discussion on 03 April 2013

    Bethesda Softworks (Elder scrolls / Fallout), Nintendo studios, Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch, I'd say Capcom Japan have still got some talent (Dragons Dogma, not RE6). I think lots of indie teams are worth a shout too tbh, thatgamecompany, the unfished swan guys, castle crasher guys etc.....
