    Why Google Stadia won't be as successful atleast at first?

    in Gaming Discussion on 22 March 2019

    With Game Stadia from Google launching this year,i think it will have a tough time atleast at the starting for 2 simple Reasons:   Always Online and No Offline Play As it is a streaming service,you always need to be online. Also,it is available on multiple platforms with different processing power and different architectures so games won't be playable off-line even if they wanted. An...

    Why Sony's Take-Two Aquisition RUMOR seems possible now?

    in Sony Discussion on 15 March 2019

    Azzanation said: You really don't understand, Competition plays a big roll and it doesn't matter if Nintendo is in direct competition with PS and Xbox or not, That has nothing to do with the potential sales for Take-Two. The Switch is a platform that can make Take-Two money so again limiting Take-Two to just one platform makes little to no sense.  can you tell me how much money...

    Azzanation said: I answered all your replies below with diangle texts. You think PS5 will generate another 40m sales to match that of GTAV's Multiplat sales? You have incredibly high hopes there. No,i think GTA6 could sell around 50-60million on PS5 if exlcusives Sure for how long will that last? Stocks change all the time and except the fact they now have to make just as much money...

    RUMOR: Sony in discussions to aquire Take-Two Interactive

    LudicrousSpeed said: Yeah, don’t see this being real. It’s too much money, and whatever money Sony would potentially end up paying, why wouldn’t MS/Apple/Google swoop in and offer a lot more? Especially since two of them are apparently about to try to break into the console space. What better way to sell your Google gaming box than exclusive GTA6? That could very...

(6 years) Small detail, that $6b is made from GTAV selling over 90m copies, and sorry to say that's not all on Sony's platform.

    twintail said: Even if GTA6 sold 50 million at $60 pure profit, that only coves $3 Billion, which is nowhere near what T2 is going to tell their company for. And who knows when GT6 will even release. but remember,it will sell 50million PS5's also,it could easily take PS5 to PS2's numbers both in hardware where PS2 sold 158million consoles and 1.7billion in software sales  If Sony...

    Exclusives Exclusives used to be a part of the PS1-PS2 era,it was not just because of Console manufactures both Sony and Microsoft money-hatting the 3rd Party Publishers but also with relation to exclusives on PS1-PS2,it was because PS2 sold far far better than its competitor that it was no point making software for the others.
