Great for gamers, but a terrible business strategy for Sony. They should hold on to all exclusives for as long as possible to improve the Playstation brand. The new leadership at Sony seems hellbent on ushering in a consoleless future. This will not end well for them.

Finally, best game of the gen at 144Hz.

What resolution? 1080 or 1440? What's your rig? 

I think it's a good idea if they are very selective like this. Especially if they only release the first HZD and make the second stay on sony consoles. Now if you wan tto finish the story you have to get PSnow or a Sony console. They should do the same with TLOU.

Mark my words. That is not their strategy. Bump the thread in three years when Sony exclusives are all timed for 2-3 years before going to PC. Bump the thread again in 7-9 years when PS5 has only sold 85 million lifetime sales compared to PS4's 110 million.

I guess will see but I don't think this is what they are doing. Sony has given statements in the past regarding keeping exclusives, exclusive to PlayStation. Comments that make it clear they realize how important it is to have exclusives on your console. Would be weird for them to suddenly reverse course on that.

1440p.



Come on Sony, do more older games. Shadow of Colossus, Ratchet and Clank Original + Future Trilogies, Jak and Daxter Trilogy, Legend of Dragoon, Uncharted Trilogy, and Last of Us.

What I have now is irrelevant, all be new next month, have a big ass budget. Although, I do not really want a 2080TI, want to wait for the next gen cards.



The replies on Twitter holy shit, Extreme Fanboys are going crazy, its a loud tiny tiny minority ... Its just a experiment ffs relax



 

Bad move unless they have data that shows PS4 sales are invariant to exclusive games (we have data showing this is NOT the case). Hopefully this is just a special case like the interview says and not a precedent. Losing exclusives will only loose sales, which will lower software sales and overall revenue.

Huh, the publisher on Steam is 'PlayStation Mobile, Inc.' That's... interesting.

Anyway, I'm not sure I'm buying the reason. I mean, there might very well be truth to the reasoning, but I imagine it's also to test the waters to see whether releasing more games on PC would make sense.

PS Mobile has been publishing PC and smartphone games since at least the last 4 or 5 years.

It's most definitely a test, but presumably not one that comes at the expense of their current business.
