Didn't know Sea of Thieves or State of Decay 2 were Early Access.

No different there than GT Sport.

Please take your console warz nonsense elsewhere :)

GT Sport has an online focus and still had 30 hours of single player at launch already.



Around the Network

I have kind of a funny story about PUBG.

Some CoD-type casuals were talking about games at work. One of them said he heard something about a multiplayer game that was huge on PC coming to consoles. He was clearly talking about PUBG but he didn't know the name. The other guy said, "Yeah, I heard about that, it's called Fortnite, it's supposed to be awesome. Hey, let's give it a try."

The developers of PUBG have no one to blame but themselves for others stealing away sales. PS4, the market leader, doesn't allow hyper-extended beta releases to be sold as finished products? They use some of those millions you've made to hire more programmers so you can stop riding the perpetual "Early Access" train. There really is no excuse for that.

And yet like SoT they’re still changing things around and adding more content. Nothing wrong with that but if you have issue with one “unfinished” game then apply that logic equally :)

Something tells me you won’t though.

GTS was never low on content as a game. In comparison to older games maybe, but it had enough content from the start. No comparison to an empty shell like SOT. But hey, not that I expected to have an objective discussion with the likes of you.

This. PUBG on steam has a concurrent player base of 1.2-2m throughout the afternoon and evening on steam.

http://steamcharts.com

The game also has 60ml daily users on mobile. 50m in China and 10m WW.

The game is also #2 on xbox most played right behind Fortnite.

PUBG is doing really really well. I don't understand all this PUBG is doomed talk.

Neither do I, but I get the feeling it's because the game didn't launch on PS4 and still isn't on it.

I see the same kind of feelings from those on PC when RDR2 wasn't announced for the platform, for one such example.

Loophole found, shocked. This is getting off topic, at ease soldier.



Can you guys like not bring in games like SoT, GT and SoD2 into this? This is a thread about Battle Royale specifically H1z1 and those games have nothing to do with the topic of the thread.

Yeah I get that people are upset it's not on PS4 but the game can't launch on PS4 right now even if PUBG Corp wants it to because it's still in early access.

There is no real difference, which is why it's absolutely idiotic to say, "oh, we're Early Access, that's why we can't release on PS4."  It's completely on the developer if they don't want to clean up their code enough to submit for certification and then continue to improve the game after.

 Blame Sony and their lackluster early access program

Sony simply isn't ok with releasing broken and unfinished games to the public. Unlike Microsoft, as everybody can see.

Sony isn't exactly known as the benchmark for having high standards towards shielding their games from purchasing garbage out of their store.
