Are you for real?! The game looks stellar. And no. Please no stupid tacked on MP mode.

Yeah sure I am.  There is good tech but they haven't actually shown off a good game as of yet. Though I don't doubt it will be considering the pedigree.

And I stand by the addition of a BR mode, and that only. Like PUBG and FN, Days Gone is a 3rd person in an open world environment running on Unreal Engine. 

A BR mode will not only give Days Gone wider market appeal, it will help distinguish itself more from TloU2 (for ppl who somehow think they look alike) but it will be an effective buffer against MS having PUBG. Additionally, it can be used to push some PS4 stock in China.

I usually dont advocate the addition of MP to games, but this is one that can actually be beneficial in a variety of ways not only for the game but for Sony too. Of course, that really depends if adding BR to the game is even feasible. 

I strongly doubt the calculation of those Zombie hordes will even be able to do in a MP game.

I hate to be a wet blanket but that's not really what it says in the press release. It's simply saying that Shawn Layden will focus on WWS solely due to a job description change. 

Well it says they view it as "More important than ever", so it would imply them putting more focus towards it, but yes it doesn't explicitly say they will focus more on it.

Hahaha I love your sig. Classic Azz

What exactly have the zombies got to do with a BR mode?

If the can be included on a small scale, then cool for something unique.  But not exactly required.

So you want a Zombie game without Zombies?! I hate stupid exploitation shit like that. Go away.

Especially if it's just copy cat crap.

Which is pretty much a standard line for press releases.  There is really nothing there that indicates they'll be expanding or increasing their budget or many of the other things people are speculating about.  Doesn't mean they won't, obviously, but those would all be complete assumptions at this point.

Surely they already have had to been working on that regardless of this decision. Also...reserera, eek, why man? 

For the same reason I joined GAF: The insider information. Other than that ... the occasional decent comment.

Sweet

I'm wondering if it could also mean purchasing one or two new companies. 

Bluepoint?

I was thinking the same thing. Tho not necessarily bluepoint. Would that make business sense, since they only do remasters?



huh? They already focus on 1st party so much that it's gonna be hard to do any more of that



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

SOTC is the first game they've rebuilt from the ground up. It shows how good their engine is and how savvy they are.
