New trailer for Voltron: Legendary Defender.

300k sold for a top hyped EXCLUSIVE from an established studio like Insominiac.....very bad. Considering there were approximately 6 million Xbox1 install base, that means there was a .05% attach rate for the game, with 300K copies sold. That is not good by any standards. Usually it's at least 1% attach rate. 5% or 10% is considered a success. .05% is a failure. That's why they are giving the...

Gamespot's opinion on pricedrop impact to Holiday Sales this year

in Sales Discussion on 29 October 2014

With 12 million PS4 owners, the vast majority of which are core gaming enthusiasts, I'd say potential buyers at this stage in the cycle, and at the discounted price point, would be non-gaming enthusiasts. Parents shopping for the holidays will make up the majority of the X1 holiday sales. The real question is, will kids be clamoring for PS4 pr X1. Even with X1 being such a steal with the discount...

New Final Fantasy XV Footage + Battle System Details

in Gaming Discussion on 02 October 2014

It's hard not to be disappointed by what I'm seeing/hearing from FFXV lately. Going back to the initial reveal trailers (when it was FFvsXIII) it was so dark, and gritty and heavy feeling (something I miss in my FF games). It was supposed to be "a Fantasy based on Reality." The potential that held was phenominal. Was really looking forward to a deep story with complex battles. From what I've...

PlayStation Home Closes Its Doors on March 31, 2015 in North America & Europe

in Sony Discussion on 26 September 2014

All I ever wanted from that "Home" experience, was my Trophy Room. That never happened. Then I had all kinds of great ideas for it, to make it really take off, but I don't work for Sony, and as such, they didn't listen to me. Good riddance!...

Sony Explains Why PS4 Hasn't Caught Fire In Japan-

in Sony Discussion on 14 July 2014

Personally, I'd attribute it to the fact that Japan loves RPGS/JRPGS. PS4 has little to none, in the way of solid RPGS/JRPGS. When that changes, Japan will get behind it....

Kazuo Hirai should be fired.

You clearly haven't been following Sony news for that long. Kaz is the one saving grace Sony has left. He just has a MASSIVE mess to clean up, and it doesn't happen over night. If anyone can turn Sony's ship straight, it will be Kaz Hirai...

Rumour: The Division's Graphics Downgraded for Console Parity

in Gaming Discussion on 24 June 2014

Bottom line is, every hot new game is shown off on a SUPER POWERFUL COMPUTER. But, when it comes time to sell that game, 90% of the people you are trying to sell that game to, don't have a powerful enough system to handle graphics at that level, in a stable way. Even a massive chunk of the PC gamer population doesn't have a good enough PC to run the graphics that were shown at the reveal. Sure,...

What is the GOLDEN AGE of Gaming?

in Gaming Discussion on 20 June 2014

"The Golden Age" of gaming, as it's referred to, is the 80's and 90's. Highlights being NES, SNES, PS1. Another way of looking at it, is the 8bit and 16bit era. Those were the days when gaming was really coming into it's own, and most gamers, (age 30+) look back on those days as, "The Golden Age"....

PS4 failed in Japan. PS4 become maybe last place in hardware selling. But whats the reason?

in Gaming Discussion on 22 May 2014

Given that PS4 sold 8,681 and the WiiU sold 7,733 the week of May 10th and X1 isn't even available in Japan.....I'd say as far as the home console market goes, PS4 isn't a failure, rather it's the best selling home console in the region!...

How much Sony pays Indies to be free on PS+ and more

in Sony Discussion on 12 May 2014

I will verify things for you if you want, Richard_Feynman. Personally, I don't think you need to "verify" anything to the forum-goers. It's a bit of info, that you felt like sharing, ANONYMOUSLY I might add, and people just need to deal with that. Take the info with the possibility that it's true, and the possibility that it's not. Otherwise it would be CONFIRMED NEWS. Thanks for the exciting...

Sony: Economics for AAA games 'don't work' on PS Vita

in Sony Discussion on 12 May 2014

@ original post Look at the total sales of Vita (8.3mil) and total sales of PS4 (7.5mil). If games on the PS4 can sell millions, so can the Vita. They just need to take some risks, MARKET their new IP on the vita, and go for it. AAA games can sell as well on the Vita, they just haven't had too many fantastic ones. Gravity Rush was cool, but I personally felt it to be a bit lacking. Even though...
