You'd have to wonder if it was a ps4 game made by Sony with the same level of downgrade would it have received the same score. Or a ps4/xbox/pc game. Games like watchdogs lost a lot of review points over a downgrade.
Because Sony has been pushing cinematic graphics since the PS3 ...
That reveal for zelda looked pretty cinematic to me despite the cartoon graphics. They revealed the trailer and led people to believe the final product would look like that. Watch some YouTube comparisons to see how big the downgrade was. But no massive backlash at launch.
I've no major problem with this but my point is Sony wouldn't have been spared the backlash. Same for Microsoft aswell.
@other user who likes to talk about me in the 3rd person
This is relevant to the discussion. It's about Sony being attacked when in many cases there is even an upgrade. So why the hell wouldn't it be compared to it's rivals Nintendo and Microsoft. Is it sacrilege to mention zelda got a downgrade and didn't receive massive backlash like Sony does? Remember folks, the spiderman puddle gate was one of the highest up voted gaming comment on reddit this year. A massive storm over nothing.
