Should I be worried or is this not a sign of things to come?

I am sorry to tell you, the answer is YES, this is a sign of thing to come, let me tell you rthe reasons.

First, adding multiplayer means they can also add ONLINE PASS, thus fighting the sales of used games

Second, if the game has a multiplayer component the people will take longer to sell the game back to a store like Gamespot

Third, With multiplayer is very easy and cheap to create DLC that brings more revenue for the company

Fourth, With multiplayer your friends will add peer preassure so you buy your own copy instead of waiting for somebody else to finish the game and lend it to you

There may be more reasons, but as you can see from a bussiness perspective makes a lot of sense.

Depends. I prefer single player for most games, but if we are talking co-op, I think that can make some games better. Like RE5 mentioned before, though the addition of the AI character in single player sucked. If you play the game co-op it becomes one of the most awesome games this gen. I actually want more games that I can play through the story with local co-op, esp survival action games.

It can hurt some games by splitting resources to add multi player, but it didn't hurt Uncharted 3, or ME3 in my opinion. As for God of War, I can't say. I just started playing the first one. Not sure about team deathmatch, but I would not mind playing through the game in local co-op. Though the platforming parts would need a major revamp to make co-op work.



I guess you'll have to get used to the horrible fact that more and more games are offering the capability to be played socially :P



I LOVE ICELAND!

While I still have complete faith in the Campaign for GoW: A, I have to say while the footage did look good, I'm concerned because the game mode itself just didn't feel quite fleshed out.

Gee, nice analysis based on less than 2 minutes of showcasing >_>'

Gee, nice analysis that I can't have an opinion on how it looked. >_>'

What CGI said.

You feel the game mode isn't fleshed out based on like a minute of gameplay which isnt even consistant?

Sigh, he did spend some time detailing the game mode you know.

But feel free to be a defensive fanboy if you want, I'll stop having a opinion just for you.

Just a friendly warning, but believe it or not they actually ban people here just for using that word. You should change it to just "But feel free to be defensive if you want".



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

You could give examples like Bioshock 2 or Resident Evil 5 though.

I've never played Bioshock so I wouldn't know as for RE5...whilst I agree it defeated the entire purpose of the game, the only time I played the online part of the game was with this random guy on PSN against the giant troll on level 3 on the hardest ldifficulty who kept kicking our ass over and over again. No matter what we tried, the troll would kick our asses and we kept saying one more try, one more try eventually when we beat it, it was a brilliant feeling, which I actually enjoyed...so it's hard for me to pick on RE5.

Regarding picking on Uc3: I played and completed the SP in the first week it was out and sold my copy (so I can buy the GOTY version when it comes out) so I don't know what's been added since then. But I feel from my experience playing through the game, it was severely lacking. I'm not talking about all the fancy edge of your seat stuff in the campaign, I'm talking about the extras outside of the actual single player campaign.
In Uc 1&2, you unlocked artwork, making of Videos Concept arts, costumes, "cheats" but in Uc3, there was none of that. No, 3D doesn't count primarily because I, like most people don't own a 3D tv so it didn't do me anything, apart from that, I can't think of anything else exclusive to the single player that wasn't there in the previous versions, save for more bugs.

It would be awesome if the multiplayer had a co-op mode. I don't mind multiplayer so long as it's enjoyable. I didn't like the idea of multiplayer being in Assassin's Creed until I realized it was hide-and-seek with concealed weapons.

Trust me when I say this..you are in for a treat with UC3 MP. I will make a thread about it in a day or two (have an exam tomorrow night) Let's team up to whoop some butt ;)

Mmmm meh! As long as the single player is as good as the other ones, Im ok with it. I just wont play the multiplayer.



I honestly don't have a problem with it. Some games may degrade their singleplayer to have multiplayer, but it's not guaranteed in any way. And I personally felt God of War III was a waste of money when I got it on release. The singleplayer was nice, but at that price I would have much prefered to spend my money on games with more content, so some multiplayer is nice. Provided they make it good of course. My main concern is really whether the multiplayer will be refreshing enough to stay interesting.

And you'll still be getting plenty of singleplayer games. Look at how well Skyrim did for example, or Batman: Arkham City for that matter. They're not going anywhere. But more focus on multiplayer will also bring more innovation to make it interesting for singleplayer gamers. Look at Dark Souls and Journey for example, they bring multiplayer to the singleplayer gamers, and do a fantastic job of it.
