Sony Fanboys Won't Support Insomniac Anymore?

Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony Fanboys Won't Support Insomniac Anymore?

We need to use the carrot and the stick. When they make exclusives we buy them. When they make multi we don't. (albeit the quality of the game matters most. If its a fantastic multi I'll buy it, or if it a real crappy exclusive I wont.) They make C to B+ level games for the most part so the the carrot and stick strategy makes sense to me.

Fanboys are stupid, thats all. Some people (even in this site) where saying they wont buy Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze because Retro betrayed them, by noy making a new Metroid.

I don't see any problem with that. I know if my favorite studio stopped making my favorite franchise I'd be hesistant to buy their.

Do you see people buying Rare games these days? I mean are there any Rare fans that actually bought Kinect Sports because Rare made it?

LOL, comparing todays Rare with Retro working on a classical Nitnendo Franchise. Made my day.

It's a valid comparison. I don't really know much about Retro but its a case of the studio making games that you don't want to play. 
Not that the Donkey Kong game won't be good, but people want another Metroid game don't they? With the popularity of FPS these days it seems like a no brainer to make another one. It's not like Nintendo needs another platformer anyway. They have plenty.



It's simple really. Sony fanboys know that their 1st party exclusives really aren't that great (most are mediocre), and Sony will never dominate if they have to rely on them. The only way that any PlayStation console will be on top is by money-hatting their way to the top (PSX era), or by being the only game in town (PS2 era) and pretty much having all the games on their system by default.

Sony is back in the same position it was in the PSX days. They're going to win because of the screw-ups of their competitors, not the strength of their own product.

I don't think Sony fans are that worried about great 1st party exclusives, given that Sony made the most 90+ games this generation out of the three.

Common dude, most are mediocre?  What about Uncharted 1,2,3, what about Killzone 2,3 that got some of the highest scores this gen, what about Journey, Infamous 1,2, Heavy Rain, The Last of Us, God of War 3 and LBP 1, 2.  Every single game there is a system seller.  To say Sony can't win by the strength of their own product, I mean common really?  How many of Microsoft's exclusives for the Xbone are just third party games that they had to buy out?  How many of the PS4 exclusives are actual first party games made by Sony studios?  Sony has the best first party studios out of the big three, now for the best IPs obviously that goes to Nintendo, but the best studios goes to Sony.  To say Sony can never dominate if they had to rely on their first party studios?  What do you think happened this gen?  When the PS3 came out at $600 and no one wanted anything to do with it, it was Sony's first party games that turned it around and it came back to sell more than the 360.
