The reason this forum has went to complete shit in a nutshell, right here in one post LOL

Console warz are adorable 

Oh yes, I am certain that you have nothing to do with it :))) I mean, don't get me wrong, but your biases are pretty obvious for anyone who visits this site at least once a week. 

And with this, I invite everyone who doesn't have anything constructive to say on the original topic, to leave the thread. It's getting annoying to have to flush after every MS fanboy that passes through here

Exactly what bias is on display here? Me saying LoU had incredible MP?

Again, adorable. It makes people here say the darnedest things.

Xbox games are basically free games with GamePass so I don't know why you keep comparing them to this. Crackdown 3 launched with both SP and MP modes and SoTs offers all its future content free at no extra costs. But if you want to compare than Gears 5 just released with both an amazing SP and MP modes with amazing visuals at launch at no extra cost. The Coalition didn't say to Gears fans to wait for either the SP or MP modes until next year or 2 and possibly charge the same customer twice. That is no different to how Destiny butchered there own game by splitting the game up into 3 expansions and expect the customer to buy the game another 3 times or a Season Pass. 

1. Yes they are, and the level of quality is roughly on the same level as most free to play games.

2.  Luckily the quality bar is set a bit higher for Sony first-party AAA releases than what something like Gears 5 can offer, so no, the comparison would not be fair It might stand toe-to-toe with something like Day's Gone but let's not kid ourselves, they are NOT on the same level as Naughty Dog.

Xbox gamers lean towards multiplayer over singleplayer, saying that outloud hasn't made this site go to shit afaik.

But if you think that saying your opinion is representative of being an Xbox gamer is derogatory... Well that would be weird. "Console wars" lol.



Predictions (Made July 2019)

LTD: PS4 - 130m, Switch - 110m, XBO - 52m       2019 : PS4 - 15m, Switch - 18.8m, XBO - 4.8m        2020: Switch - 22m (Peak Year)

Fixed that for you 👍

Theres a thread on the first page here where you yourself posted a chart showing the top selling PS4 games in the US and it was dominated by games with heavy MP influence. GTA, CoD, Battlefield, Red Dead, same shit sells on both platforms. People prefer MP. Where Sony and MS differ is Sony has always had more studios and they have studios that make SP games. MS only remedied this situation recently and the results won’t be seen until next gen really.

That of course ignores the fact that we’re in a thread discussing how Naughty Dog apparently thinks the MP in LoU2 is such a big deal that it deserves a stand alone release or a DLC. So I guess they must think there are a lot of people who think like me that own PS4’s? Otherwise why bother with a special release. 

But logic doesn’t apply when you’re trying to make console war zingers. Carry on.



Good. Enough with the tacked on multiplayer modes for single player, story-driven games.

Lots of... passion in this thread!



Twitter: @d21lewis  --I'll add you if you add me!!

Making it a stand alone title makes it a lot more interesting. They can really up the emphasis on managing your survivors and even add real factions into it, like For Honor. Could even be F2P, and there are strong rumors of a BR mode being in it.

Dropping in somewhere and you have to scavenge for weapons and supplies to make stuff, would be interesting. I’d still stick to the traditional SnD type mode though.

Oh boy haha. So you are saying games like Gears of War and Forza have the same level of quality as free to play games? 



This thread is a mess in its current state. So, please help it change course or we'll have to shut it down!

Same here... I wanted the game to have it just so I can opt to not play it like I did with the original. Now they have denied me that right, so I am not buying either.

Your "right"? ..

I guess we know who will get the self centered award of the year. On topic I think its for the better since TLOU is mainly a SP story so its perfectly fine if that's the pure focus. In that regard its a bit like the new GOW. Since it will also be less lineair, more explotation and probably pretty long. 



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar
