Forums - Gaming Discussion - A good example of why Sony Consoles always succeed.

I'm an adult now and can afford any console if I wanted, but honestly I don't feel like I need to. I can see the value the PC and the XBox platforms can provide to the industry, but if one person is short of money and can only back up one console per generation, I will totally recommend PlayStation over and over again.

Price over any platform but Playstation?, even if you can find cheaper alternatives?.

 

You can see the value of the other twoa s you say, but it sounds like there is no value when you put pocket change into the equation.

The reason why third parties go on dony and not nintenso is because on nintendo they get overshadowed by first party titles.



This is actually very interesting

ES Oblivion- released on Xbox360/PC in 2006, the PS3 released 1 year later in 2007
Bioshock- was released on Xbox360/PC in 2007, the PS3 released 1 year later in 2008
Fallout 3- sales were higher on Xbox360 and this pushed a lot of sales for MS.
Red Dead Redemption- sales are roughly tied with Xbox360, poor HD and FR issues were what hurt the PS3 version of the game.
ES Skyrim- sales were higher on Xbox360, PS3 version was considered the worst of all 3 systems and was constantly broken.
The Walking Dead- in 2012 actually sold more on iOS than any other system and was a huge push on mobile gaming. PS3/Xbox360 were roughly tied in sales.
Overwatch- crushed the competition in 2016 and PC is the number one selling platform over both consoles.

Everything else I will agree on though. :)


I dont think any of this matters, the point is that all these games are on Playstation platforms.

I think Nintendo will win this year with Legend of Zelda, i think it could actually be somewhat close with Horizon but Zelda will definitley win as a result of Red Dead 2 getting delayed.

yep, a good reminder of why third party support is really important

Especially when your first party output is so weak and narrow like Nintendo's.

What was it then? Certainly not 3D World

Why not? It was certainly very well received, I think a lot of people (if not most) would consider it a superior game.

My personal favorite would be Pokémon X & Y, but I understand why that wouldn't be a widely accepted pick.

I absolutely adore X & Y, and 3D World also even though I let it seem like I didn't care, but Link Between Worlds was such an experience. Compelling music, addictive character and lovely gameplay mechanics.

Do you guys think this will finally be the year when Playstation won't have the big GOTY winner? And also finally the year when a nintendo console gets that kind of title since Resident Evil 4?

Probably this year, Ninty will most likely have the two huge games this year

Could be four if Xenoblade 2 and Splatoon 2 more than deliver. I mean if Overwatch is able to garner GOTYs while having little to no single player options, then why can't Splatoon with a new single player and added Salmon Run and Legend mode to add to an already praised multiplayer experience.

To each their own, then. I think A Link Between Worlds is a mostly uninspired game that is not much more than a glorified remake and is but a shadow of what A Link to the Past was. I mean, it was a great game and all, but it's nowhere near being among the best Zelda games in my opinion.
