Love the PS4 but Sony needs more games that I need.Fantasy JRPGs? Uhhh It's not the selling point anymore but they need it to keep the diversity. We don't need post-apocalyptic or scifi everything. Where's my Legend of Dragoon? Wild ARMs? Sony is becoming so negligent with its IPs that it sometimes hurts. There's no way they think those games need over the top visuals/AAA budget to sell. Persona 5 didn't need it. Nier didn't but what's Sony's doing? Sitting on it's ass cause they are the market leader.

I mean I am happy with the next year's output(it is obviously different Detroit, GoW, Spiderman etcetera) but please... I need a refresher. I don't want myself to get tired of those games and I feel Sony should branch out a little more and become more a little less safe now that they have established themselves as market leader.

 

For anyone curious about one of the poll choice. It is actually "Sony is the king of diversity you Playstation Hater Go back and play your beloved Dreamcast lol" haha :D

You need a refresher?! Buy a PSVR and STFU! ;P

A $399 gaming peripheral? STFU too. ;P

Sounds more like you just want some old IP's back than you do diversity. This year we should be getting:

A Norse action game (GOW)
A cyberpunk adventure game (Detroit)
An open world superhero game (Spiderman)
An action/adventure/puzzle remake (SotC)
An unprecedented game and content creator (Dreams)
An advanced swarm zombie/survival shooter (Days Gone)
A zany Japanese crime brawler (Yakuza 6)
A Ghibli style JRPG (Ni No Kuni 2)
And possibly even a spacetime stealth action mindfuck (Death Stranding)

Apart from maybe wanting more stylized visuals or say a classic platformer, it doesn't get much more diverse.

That's not a lot of diversity.

Ni no kuni 2 isn't even exclusive. 3rd Person action adventure isn't even diverse anymore which are what you mentioned.

I give you Dreams.

Shadow of the Colossus? a Remake? Oh please that's not diverse enough.

Let me rephrase it to for everyone. I want more games(not exclusively JRPGs) than what Sony currently offers. Simpler, smaller and double Abudget. Something to keep people entertained while you wait for the bigger games.

If Sony could waste hundreds of millions  of dollars on a flop like Blade Runner the film... I am confused why they can't do the same it for Playstation when it's their most profitable business.

Sorry man, it doesn’t seem like you can be reasoned with.

This is the worst Legend of dragoon/wild arms begging thread i've seen.

The PS4 has the most exclusives of any platform. It's not even comparable. The Switch gets one (exclusive?) per month.

Well to be fair, Switch is only 10 months old. Most 1st years of consoles don't even get exclusives unless they're ports(Remember 1st year PS4 and Xbone Games?)... I think things will change soon here. But I digress,

PS4 is more diverse overall, that's been its moniker since the PS1. I think the OP meant to criticize Sony's 1st party (which still really isn't as valid but understandable) for their negligence towards JPRGs. But this isn't the 90's anymore. JRPGS aren't the powerhouse they used to be. But even with that being said PS4 is still getting/has a TON of them. Persona 5, Nier, Tales, Ni No Kuni, Dragon Quest XI, Kingdom Hearts 3, Final Fantasy VII...I kind of fail to see the argument here. It's getting more JRPG support that the Switch (as of now). 

That's what I'm saying.(First party exclusives)

Playstation used to be known as a place for niche games and now Nintendo Switch is becoming that console at the pace they are going with. Sony used to provide something different that third party developers don't and I don't see that anymore.

If Sony goes on with that kind of business... I'm going to be tempted to buy a switch. Sony does not understand the situation they are in. PS4 lacks identity. PS3 atleast got something going on with it. Free online+Stylized Game+New IPs but PS4? It's currently defined by third party games and I don't like that. I might  just buy a PC or Switch. Steam provides something that Sony don't. Nintendo is now more open to devs and while Switch will be more successful and compelling than PS4 as time goes by. Anyone should admit it. Nintendo invented an amazing console and Sony should be threatened by it if they keep on sticking with their conservative approach on software development. Switch has the identity that PS4 doesn't have. You can personally tell if it's a switch game or not. PS4? You cab hardly tell because you will find that experience in another platform like PC, Xbox and switch in the future.

Eh whatever. Don't call me if Sony is back peddling to niche gamers too late when Switch dominates and extinguishes the need for PS4. Graphics are not everything.

I don’t like to repeat myself.



One hell of an awkward thread.

Can the mods check to see if the OP was hacked?



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

I will add nothing to the discussion but the fact that I wan't sony to give me a shiny beautiful spyro remaster.



If you ignore the overall lineup, sure.

Just because you do not agree with my opinion doesn't mean I'm hacked. People changed as I changed. Just like generations in gaming. Y'know. :)

Now do you agree or disagree that Sony is becoming less diverse with their exclusive output than before in previous generation. That is the question.
