Why wouldnt make sense for them!? They also have plenty of singleplayer games or games from most other genre from 3rd party also, and they still make singleplayer games and games from different genres, but they are lacking some big multiplayer game. Clarly they dont need it, they are doing great even without big multiplayear game, but they would doing fine even without some other single player games they having, I just find strange that they dont have some big multiplayer game.

Biggest reason one why MS is losing this gen from Sony is the initial DRM plans and inferior hardware for higher price point, both Sony and MS didnt had soem big exlusives in its first year or two.

Because Playstation has such good 3rd party support.
Those 3rd party guys more than cover the "online multiplayer" genre, its a genre thats already over crowded.

Thats why... its a waste to do it for them.

 

 

"They also have plenty of singleplayer games or games from most other genre from 3rd party also, and they still make singleplayer games and games from different genres, but they are lacking some big multiplayer game."

Bull....   and even if a few 3rd party titles are simular and of same quality, those things a few and far between.

While look at the online multiplayer genre.... people are drowning in those titles.

So its 2 differnt situations.

Yes, but that goes for evre genre not just for big online games. Those 3rd party games covers every genre of games not just big online games, that's why PS4 was selling great even before had any good exclusive game.

I could also say its waste to make Killzone, Uncharted, Drive Club, GT...there other 3rd party games that are not big online games, and PS4 would sell great even without games that I mentione.

 

Bull....there are plenty of 3rd party single player games and games that are not big online games, for instance Far Cry 5 was just released.

No they don't.

They already tried very hard in PS3 days, but that just isn't their mojo. Just look at how dissapointing GT sport turned out to be.

Eh, GT:S deviated away from what GT is supposed to be. It doesn’t mean that they couldn’t release a solely multiplayer project and have it succeed.

On the question of need - no, they don’t.

I mean....it's not bad (it's pretty decent) but just inferior compared to the mainline entries this pales in comparison (imo of course).



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Not from the sales numbers that I have seen, Sony has hit a stride, they dont really need anything in particular, other than keep doing what they have been doing. I think anything they start now will be for PS5 in mind personally.



 

No, Most of the gaming Industry is doing multiplayer it's nice to have a company that has single-player as a focus.

Yeah, I loved starhawk. That game was lots of fun. it's a shame it didn't sell more.



Another multiplayer shooter? Good fucking god, no.

 

I could do with an existing multiplayer Sony game, but not if it's another mindless shooter.

Nope.



No
But they already have gone that way, GTS is primarly a multiplayer game.
