after the MGS5 event yesterday it had me thinking a bit.. why is MGS5 on Ps3 and X360? if it was also on PS4 they probably would have announced that as we are all aware of the platform.
Then i thought about Battlefield 4 which will be on PS3, X360, PS4 & Xbox3. the more casual gamer who would buy ths game probably wouldnt get a next gen system when they could just play it on there current system.
This also goes with Assassin's Creed, Cod ect...
as long as these publishers support current gen why go over to next? i rember the transition from Ps1 to Ps2 and PS2 to PS3 and not that many games where on both. there was crossover titles but not in alarminging large numbers.
do you think the transition from 7th to 8th will take a long time? maybe not even at all for some?
No, it is not dead by a long shot, but it will be the longest transistion in Video Game history. Everyone expecting PS4s to fly off the shelves will be sorely dissapointed. It may or may not outperform the Wii U but in the end, most of the biggest games will remain cross-gens for at least 2 more years.
The transition will happen though, but the dynamics of the industry are changing.
