Games I can't get on PS4. Conker 2, Lost Odyssey 2, new IPs etc
Already the pattern in those answers suggests that the general feeling towards the scorpio is, that the console is DOA. What is MS thinking? I mean they must have had given thoughts about the scorpio proposition in todays console market.
Obviously MS started designing and engineering the scorpio years ago, when it was hard to predict todays market, and they will stick to their plan by releasing it now. But why?
As there are no obvious incentives for gamers to buy it, even from XboxOne owners, what arre they doing?
Perhaps it is just a 'fill in the gap' mission to counter the PS4/Pro line, but where MS is not believing it will sell that much. It could therefore just be a pscyhological effect for consumers.
They think PS4 won cuz of 1080p, so they wanna own the 4K race, without actually going into next gen lol. They talk about performance profiles, shackling themselves to 2012 hardware. Yuuge mistake imo, they should've just made Xbox 2 with next gen games and pointed out it's also Xbone BC, capable of rendering them in 4K.
Console seen as true successor is gonna move more, much more hardware than an iterative model.
I think MS could've made a comeback with a true next gen console with 16GB ram, Vega and Zen even if it cost $499, so long as they can show a notable graphical upgrade over PS4 exclusives.
Just imagine the hype if they had something like Watch Dog 2012 demo to show at E3, even if proven bullshot later, all eyes will be on Xbox from that point.
I fear Scorpio is gonna get sandwiched between insane price cuts/deals on PS4, and a possible PS5 reveal 18-24 months from now on.
lol I know it's a gaming forum and thus incredibly biased towards people with niche gaming habits, but let's face facts. Games matter, not exclusives. Every GTA or CoD is more important than any exclusive. That has been proven time and time again. GTA, CoD, BF and FIFA (among many others) are bigger system sellers than Horizon, Forza or Dawn of War III. Unless the exclusive is a mega franchise like Halo, Gran Turismo or Mario Kart.
When consumers can play those multi plat games with far improved graphics at a price that can challenge a decent PC rig, then consumers will buy it.
Very few people will switch platforms 3-4 years into a gen especially to one that's gonna be +$100 more expensive than the competition, and one that doesn't even do next gen graphics but upgraded current gen. Sony will advertise the biggest games this and next year, and PS4 as the best place to play them on, the mainstream won't even know about Scorpio.
Also PS4 has been beating Xbox in NPDs every month this year, so the exclusives that it got like Yakuza, Nioh, Horizon, Nier, MLB, Persona 5 have certainly helped. PS4 did +400K in March when Horizon launched.
I'm sure Sony has seen the numbers that their exclusives do help and positvely contribute to their lead else they wouldn't bother with them.
