PS4 Sells 5.9 Million Units Worldwide During 2017 Holiday Season, >73.6 Million Sold Through

in Sony Discussion on 11 January 2018

Genos8 said: CGI-Quality said: If it were down by millions, I'd agree. But not 300K and missing the new addition. And, who's to say those 300K weren't for an Xbox One , too?  I'm clearly not gonna convince you. I'll wait for the numbers. Zekkyou said: Japan is the only major region where the Switch's supply issues persisted late into the year. In the...

PS4 Sells 5.9 Million Units Worldwide During 2017 Holiday Season, >73.6 Million Sold Through

in Sony Discussion on 11 January 2018

Genos8 said: CGI-Quality said: I will. If you can point out, as a matter of fact, just how the two affect each other to any significant degree, I'd be happy to look over it. Otherwise, with the PS4 having its best sales to date, despite the launch of not one, but two, pieces of hardware, I'm inclined to stick by the view presented.  One piece of hardware...

Japan sales (Week 50): Media Create/Famitsu/Dengeki - December 11-17

in Latest Charts on 20 December 2017

Alkibiádēs said: Zekkyou said: While that's often true, there's usually a soft limit to how far sales stay relevant in this context (as we've seen with the PS4 and X1). I wouldn't be surprised if the Switch does get more support in some capacity (at minimum more sales do lead to a better position to make deals), but i expect the difference to be considerably smaller...

Rumor: Playground Games(Forza Horizon Devs) New Game will be a Microsoft Exclusive. And it's a Established IP

in Microsoft Discussion on 20 December 2017

At first i was confused as to why it being exclusive would be a newsworthy rumour, but a quick google later and i find out that PG is an independent studio. Given i'd only heard about them from Forza Horizon (and that does appear to be the only series they've worked on so far), i always just assumed it was a first party studio....

OTBWY said: Zekkyou said: Long-term I'm expecting to see a lot of give and take in Japan. Outside of deals with Sony and Nintendo themselves, there's little reason for most Japanese developers to not have their previously Sony only, and Nintendo only IP start appearing on both the PS4 and Switch. It's about which sells the most. That's the primary reason for support....

trunkswd said: Zekkyou said: Is there a chance the Switch is slightly over-tracked right now (and by extension will be slightly under-tracked in the next few weeks)? It's at 500k+ in Japan for about that period, and let's low-ball and say 750k for NA. That only leaves 250k~ for EU and Other. That or Nintendo rounded up by a few 100k, but that seems unlikely. That is...

Nintendo also announced on December 13 the Switch hit 10 million units sold to consumers. They didn't provide any dates on when it hit the figure (Unless I am mistaken), so that would...

OTBWY said: The Switch will definitely go over WiiU's Japanese LT sales by next month. The real question is how fast the Switch will outsell the PS4 and Vita there. Once that happens, it will be interesting to see what will happen in terms of software support. I wonder if smaller Japanese studio's will be brave enough to develop games for Sony's main competitor. Long-term I'm...

PUGB on XB1 drops to 4fps, issues also on XB1X- Digital Foundry

in Microsoft Discussion on 14 December 2017

DonFerrari said: Zekkyou said: Often the benefit is that the game gets the chance to be finished at all, which i expect many would consider a pretty big up side :p A lot of people consider that a big enough positive that they fund completely unreleased stuff on Kickstarter, and early access is a clear step up over that in many respects. And sure, but if something becomes as...

in Microsoft Discussion on 14 December 2017

DonFerrari said: Zekkyou said: Something can benefit the developer and still be a selling point to some consumers (e.g. funding development of a game that might otherwise not exist), it doesn't have to be just one or the other.We'll have to agree to disagree on that, because i think the disclaimer is fine. It's clearly placed, and gives you a quick but defined description of the...

PUGB on XB1 drops to 4fps, issues also on XB1X- Digital Foundry

in Microsoft Discussion on 14 December 2017

DonFerrari said: Zekkyou said: In general they get early (and on-going) access to a title, get to help fund its development (and often allow the final game to be larger and better polished), be a part of the community that helps shape the game's future, and sometimes get the game cheaper long-term (not applicable to PUBG, but it is to many early access titles). It's fine if you...

Metal Gear Survive looks... good?

in Gaming Discussion on 14 December 2017

The biggest problem with Metal Gear Survive is that it has Metal Gear in the name. Konami are betting that leveraging the Metal Gear IP will benefit them more than the backlash related to its inclusion will hurt. It'll certainly be interesting to see how that works out for them :p...

Consumers should be protected from exstremes, and they usually are (both legally and because of PR), but if they expect benefits above the standard then risks above the standard are understandable, and should be clearly presented.

DonFerrari said:  Zekkyou said: You're digging way too deep into this. It's a disclaimer, not an in-depth legal document. Just because you can interpret it one way, doesn't mean that is the intention. Even if MS were planning to give you universal life-time guaranteed protection from the actions of every single independent developer ever (lol), they'd still include that...

PUGB on XB1 drops to 4fps, issues also on XB1X- Digital Foundry

in Microsoft Discussion on 14 December 2017

DonFerrari said: Zekkyou said: Of course, but the clause isn't intended to protect MS from that kind of extreme. It's a general warning that they can't guarantee the game will be finished (it's not even theirs), and that the game can change over time. It protects them if, for example, in 2 years time a big update releases that changes the game into something someone dislikes. It's...

Remember when Sony was stopped from taking GT5's servers offline, or when a company was legally forced to roll back an unpopular game update? Nope, me neither.And what's to stop them just saying 'this is now released'? The only practical solution to your problem is for no one to be given the choice at all, which would be...
