It's never interested me, MM spent a whole generation on this game. Waste of time imo :/

Eh, only a waste if nothing comes of it.

9/10



Early impressions were always fantastic for it.... however it seems like alot of people were sleeping on it.

Massive sleeper hit, incomeing.



I have a feeling this will have stellar reviews for what it is but I am not aware of any heavy marketing pushes by Sony. That and most gamers don’t have the patience to create the things I’ve seen imo. Ultimately this game won’t be able to touch the genre leader (Minecraft) in terms of accessibility, price, and charm.

Accessibility I can agre, price is similar considering type of product, charm I would say Dreams have bucketloads over plain color boxes of Minecraft.

Is this a full $60 game? Because I could have Minecraft for less then $10 on my iPhone for example.

Yes let's compare different platforms and 10 years difference between release.

Since when have a game costing 60 become something problematic or preventing a game from have good sales? 60 would only be a problem if people don't find value on that. From memory Minecraft when launching on PS3/X360 was like 30USD right? Count inflation and you aren't that much apart.

Minecraft is just as popular if not more so then it was when it launched. It’s still very much relevant as games today in the same genre. You said the price was similar, which was intriguing to me. You made me genuinely curious, but if it’s $60 when PS4 itself has Minecraft available for $20 I just don’t see it being a fair fight beyond the first 2 months.

The lack of serious marketing will probably hurt Dreams at launch, but with reviews being as great as they are I could see it having long legs and becoming a big hit over time.
