It’s a weird strategy releasing their gems at the end of the gen. Like GOW 2 on PS2 after PS3 released or GT 6 on PS3 during the PS4 launch. Even launching in May is a weird month for what is imo their best game of the gen, because Naughty Dog is the jewel in the Sony developer crown.
I would have made it a November launch, followed with a PS5 version next spring to keep momentum going.
Seems to be paying off. Best strategy some say is releasing away from big third partys as they love the holidays. Also releasing during the slow months keeps momentum. Pretty sure theres going to be some day 1 updates for the ps5 that will serve as pseudo launch games for the ps5. I see this as the best momentum being build.
It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.
