Yes a remake of a PS2 game and a JRPG, both of which probably sold not much of anything, persuaded MS to rush out a game they have been showing off for years. Makes about as much sense as your theory that the Scorpio was never real. God of War looks to be an amazing game but you don’t rush out a big title like Sea of Thieves because of it.

The keyboard analyst talk on this site is embarrassing at times.

Anyways, sounds like a good amount of free content. Not sure what anyone else expected, it’s not like these are things hey marketed as being there at launch. Of course it’s going to be a slow drip of new stuff, like any other GaaS.

Why didn't you quote Gribble's post? It's very obvious that it's his post you're responding to.

I often don’t quote if the post is directly above mine, mostly because I use my iPhone here mostly and it’s garbo on mobile.

That's the point thats being made, that slow drip is fine if your game contains lots of content that takes a while to play through.

I certainly don't think they rushed it out, but I think looking at what Sony do every year, MS know that Sony basically beat MS for 8 months of the year and then MS do something towards Xmas, perhaps they are trying to change that and pushed SOT out earlier than they would have normally. What with RDR this October, I think the gap for any MS/Sony titles is going to be a hard sell anyway. Last time RDR came out, nothing sold well for a couple months (though I recall it being in the summer months before).

Lots of things going on I guess that its sometimes difficult to know what the reasons are.



Making an indie game : Dead of Day!

You see, this is why I dislike you. You're dishonest. I never said the Scorpio wasn't real, I was simply pointing out that it didn't exist when some of you were talking about it as if it was already competing with consoles on the market. That's why I included the Scorpio Spec Sheet in my Amazon breakdown for a laugh. You do this to everyone who hasn't got your 'favourite' console of choice. I've watched you closely. 



 

The PS5 Exists. 


Waiting for horde mode and battle royale.

Nah, there were threads about the Scorpio where you implied it wasn’t real, all part of the MS marketing machine. If this forum didn’t have garbage search functionality I’d remind you of your own posts. Idk what your amazon breakdown is or the “Scorpio Spec Sheet” nor do I care. Not sure if I should be flattered that you’ve been “watching” me or not. Idk, sounds like you might have too much free times on your hands, friend. I do enjoy your zany theories though. It’s like those bizarre console YouTube channels, only in text form. Keep them up, but stop trying to get personal.

A BR with naval combat would be sweet. No land anywhere.



I wanted this game to be great but all I can think of is it is another Destiny/No Mans Sky disappointment...and this list of updates is doing little to change my mind on that.



Is the rest of the Krakens body apart of the content?

I take it you're referring to Destiny 2 and not the original.
