    Sony Weighs Bid for Gaming Firm Leyou (Splash Damage, Digital Extremes)

    in Sony Discussion on 02 July 2020

    I'm surprised by the scope of this. Its a huge investment, over $1.1 billion, easily the biggest Sony will have ever made in their gaming division. I'm guessing this is about china, diversifying their portfolio, targeting more platforms, the revenue streams of (multiplayer, f2p, mobile) with the potential for growth. I wouldn't be surprised if these developers all continued to make cross platform...

    Sony hinted possible PS5Pro even before showing PS5

    in Sony Discussion on 10 June 2020

    KLXVER said: Dallinor said: A few bucks? (If we go with 1 in 4 PS4's since Pro launch) that equates to roughly somewhere in the region of an additional $1.475 billion in hardware revenue. How do you calculate that? How much does Sony make per PS4 Pro sold? Take the number of PS4's sold since PS4 pro launch- divide by a quarter- then multiply by the difference in...

Ive never been too into the power of a console, so maybe this is way above my head, but I just don't get the smaller updates of a mid gen upgraded console. If a gamer is so into that, then they would play their games on the PC. A constantly evolving...

    MS Executive says Devs will need to learn how to work around Slower SSD on XSX

    Pemalite said: Snoopy said: ORI dev confirmed what I said. Third parties aren't going to take full advantage of the faster SSD because they are not going to exclude Xbox One series x or PCs that are still using HDD. Bulk of PC's sold today, even low-end netbooks use SSD's.Xbox Series X is also using an SSD.Most devices today, including phones and tablets... You guessed...

The reason for a company to offer an upgrade is very simple- to make more money. Both MS and Sony know that there is a section of their consumer base interested in the latest new tech. Targeting these consumers...

    KLXVER said: DonFerrari said: having a 4 year cycle would split fanbase much more. Every game work fine on the base console, actually the pro was most of a left over since they made sure all games worked on base most of the games on Pro was just little more pixels and stable framerate. Well the original Xbox had a 4 year cycle and the 360 did well. Same with the WiiU to...

    Linus - Ive Disappointed and Embarrassed Myself (re: PS5 SSD)

    in Sony Discussion on 06 June 2020

    Pemalite said: Good on Linus.In saying that... He wasn't wrong in asserting that the PC has faster SSD's the Playstation 5. - It's just that wasn't Tim's original assertion and there is more to the SSD than just sequential reads/writes. (Which the PC undoubtedly wins in.)Just like there is more to performance than teraflops.Hopefully this puts the boring circular arguments to bed, the...

    MS needs to showcase XSX as well as UE5 showcased PS5

    RolStoppable said: This is a funny paragraph. You say that gamers have become smarter, then immediately go back to talk about a tech demo for an engine that - despite it going to be used on both consoles - had gamers buy into the kool-aid that the PS5 will be the only console that can pull it off. The only part of the tech demo that is in question is the final one where the...

    A Key Ingredient of Sony's Successes

    The_Liquid_Laser said: It might seem like Sony's strategy is better or maybe Nintendo and Sony have equally viable strategies.  However, Nintendo has the better strategy in the long run.  Nintendo can survive and be profitable even when it is at the bottom.  Sony can't.  Nintendo does not sell hardware at a loss and they made a small profit during the Gamecube and Wii...

    A Key Ingredient of Sony's Successes

    in Sony Discussion on 31 May 2020

    Jaicee said: Let's be honest, Sony isn't the most brilliant and creative institution. If you want creative hardware, Nintendo is the place you go to. If you want the most sophisticated hardware, Microsoft is the place you go to. That stuff certainly has its merits, but if you want to win a console war, your best chance is probably to make sure your platform has the most games. Making...

    Early Predictions: PS5 - XSX Gap + Combined sales.

    in Gaming Discussion on 24 April 2020

    Well, we still don't know the price points. I think once they're set it will be a huge indication of how the next generation will play out.There's also still the chance for colossal blunders in the form of RROD type situations with early hardware, or massive marketing errors.Then the launch exclusives, we know MS has Halo, but what sort of Halo will it be? Has Sony anything big ready for the...

    Call of Duty: Modern Warfare console players are turning off crossplay to try to escape PC cheaters.

    in Gaming Discussion on 19 April 2020

    I'd prefer if the game had crossplay disabled as default. Surely with 50 million players there's enough on every platform to fill lobbies. The game keeps trying to force you to use it, with messages popping up on screen etc. It was the same with Fortnite. I've had 3 games ruined by a hacker so far. It's ridiculous watching them playing with aimbot in the replay, with 30 kills, shooting across the...

I wouldn't give it any awards. Again probably just...

    Outer World game design are held back by PS4 and Xbox One , another prove that Next gen will be held back by current gen if games are made for cross gen

But some people claiming that it's the best game of the decade,...
