Love how high Astral Chain is



Around the Network

Really nice to see Astral Chain so high.
In Platinum I trust.

 I think the varying sizes of the 4 main supporter bases is the major factor in these surveys outcomes.

That is one factor but the PS4 was thriving in its earlier days on here. Nintendo have announced so many games (many with release dates or release windows) whereas Playstations biggest titles are still very much up in the air as far as the audiences know. When they were down, Nintendo dominated with one or two titles and Playstation still managed to get more games and/or more points overall. I'm hoping PS4 gets 1 last boost before jumping to next gen. But I don't think it'll manage to get the most votes or most games again. Probably just isolated titles like TLOU2 and Ghost of Tsushima hitting #1. 

I agree it's a mix of both of our observations that's driving these outcomes.

It's funny how Metroid was in the top spot without knowing anything about it except for a teaser that showed nothing, and now that it has changed developer to the studio that successfully managed to bring it into the 3D world, it has completely disappeared from the chart. It's funny, and a bit sad, how volatile people really are.

It also surprises me to see the Switch version of Doom Eternal being the most voted one, as there are more FPS players on the other platforms and Eternal is a different game than most.

I think it's understandable that the news of Prime 4 being restarted killed the hype for it; it's hard to be excited about something that's now likely 4+ years away and which we've still seen nothing at all of.

As for Doom Eternal, there's not a whole lot of shooters on Switch there's a hunger for more.

But the hype it had was completely false, only because of the name. Sure, the news of a reboot in the development are always negative, but at least now we know that Nintendo cares about the game/IP (something that after Federation Force I wasn't sure about) and also that they've given it to the studio that knows best how to work with the IP. To me, those two bits of info are far more exciting than what we knew before the delay.

In the case of Doom Eternal is a mix between one platform craving for more FPs while the other two platforms are where most of the FPS crowd are. And, as I said, it's not that there are many games like Doom Eternal on PS4/X1 or even PC either given how different if from the likes of CoD or Battlefield. It will still sell more on those platforms, tho.

Before the restart, a lot of people were hopeful they'd get to play it this year or next. Now it's looking unlikely it'll come out before 2023 at the earliest. It's hard to maintain any enthusiasm for something that's years and years away.

And Doom Eternal may sell more on PS4 in the market at large, but this isn't a poll of the mass market, this is a poll of a small community of hardcore video game enthusiasts.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019
