Nah, I will just wait it out two-three years and pick up the eventual Playstation Plus release



 

I'll probably wait for a price drop unless my brother buys the game.



I would love to buy it, if I had a PS4. Lol!



For me it's the setting and I really like story driven games with amazing graphics. I ordered the Premium Edition and I sincerely hope this game delivers. Only 4 more days to go...

You don't know if the game is bad or not, neither does anyone else. So some people will buy it and find out. The rest of us will hear from those people about the game. No big deal.

So how is this gen so bad? People buying a game based on "hype" since nintendo started making games and consoles. How many people within a fanbase will buy a game because of it's name without knowing if the game will be bad or not? Zelda, halo, fallout, elder scrolls, cod, uncharted, mario kart, final fantasy and many more. The only reasons why people are giving this game so much crap is because it's a new IP and it's exclusive. 


Exactly...its hard to know how the game will turn out, which is exactly why preordering sight unseen is ridiculous. Why not just wait until after it releases to actually hear more impressions and be able to create a more educated decision? These statements are largely about the destructive nature of "preorder culture" and the bullshit that surrounds it...seriously, pre orders are ridiculous.

Also, your last sentence is pure bullshit. There have been plenty of times plenty of people have cited plenty of issues they had with the game, none of which having anything to do with the fact that it is a new exclusive IP...

PS: So many people in this thread are complaining about the "hate" this game receives, without realizing how they are practically begging for more people to jump in and explain why exactly they dislike the game. Quit making silly statements like "Love how much effort people put into hating this game before its even released. Same people that line up to buy cod every year" and maybe people will stop feeling the need to explain how full of it some of the defenders of this game can be.

I'm more or less neutral on pre-orders. I will pre-order some games if I'm sure they will turn out great but I don't for the most part. I think that it's worthless to debate on pre-orders because you can simply just pre-order what games you want or don't. If more people are on the don't pre-order side then companies will respond to that and adapt. 

To the bold part, the game isn't even out yet and people have plenty of issues? It's not out yet. As in the finished product isn't out yet.  I still think that many of 'em are being harsh because it's a new IP but just won't admit it. Some people are hastily cherry picking crap excuses for reasons not to buy it.  Their "issues" are groundless until the game is released. It's pure speculation. If you or anyone else has issues with a released game then I'll lend an ear to listen but before it's released? Hell no.

I'm not saying the game is good or bad until I played it which alot of other people on this thread and in general aren't doing. Hence why I'm defending it and taking a "Let other people buy it and see" approach. I'm not gonna fault someone for being the first to buy the game.



For me, yes, when I get a PS4. Orders theme, storyline and its usage of utilizing and synchronizing of both its presentation and gameplay in harmony have caught my attention. This game has done such a great job harmonizing both, it reminds me fondly of Killzone 2 and how Guerilla Games used the atmosphere of Helghan to recreate war with its gameplay. Either way, going to a day 1 purchase when I get a PS4; along with Warriors Orochi 3 and BloodBourne.

eventually when it drops in price, which considering how quickly little big planet 3 and driveclubs prices nosedived should only be a few months away.

Yes, I like watching my games more than playing them. Hopefully the trophies unlock themselves.

Have two collector's editions to scalp.


People like you need to go away

Its fairly ridiculous to say that a game is immune to criticism until after its release. When I watch a piece of "gameplay" that throws in "cinematic cuts" every few seconds instead of actually letting the player have any agency whatsoever, I think that is a fair complaint. When I watch videos of cutscenes and think "this would be cool if the game was actually being played", I think that is a fair complain. When I look at shooting segments and yawn at the shooting gallery style approach, I think that is a fair complaint. When I watch the first hour of the game and see setpiece fail states (hostage related), which are jarring and which are simply "rewind the game 10seconds and try again", I think that is a fair complaint. When I am watching some pretty cutscene and all the sudden a weird button prompt starts flashing on the screen, shattering my immersion, I think that is a fair complaint.

I don't think any of those issues are erased by saying "yeah well, the game isn't out yet". While not everyone may agree with my point of view, I think it is fair to express my opinion that the game has heaps of wasted potential, and had it taken a different direction, I think it could have been something genuinely amazing. Instead, it seemed to fall into the trap of writing a movie instead of a game and forgetting the huge differences between the two (as there are plenty of game writers who wish they were movie writers, this isn't exactly surprising)...
