See people having sensible and logical reactions to this news. All consoles have transition periods.

Not looking for a fight, but seeing the neutral reactions is a little irritating considering how much flack Xbox got for saying they would support Xbox One for 1-2 years.

Sony definitely got a lot of push back from the hardcore audience with the HFW announcement. Casual gamers don't really care if something like Miles Morales hits the PS4.

To be fair Sony hasn't exactly clarified what that means. I remember seeing JRPGs that most people don't know about releasing on PS4 and PS3 early in the gen. Is that the kind of support they mean? Do they mean updates? It's confusing because clearly not all their games are going to PS4 so it's not the same thing that MS is doing where every single first party title will be on xbox one.

If I were betting on it, I would bet no. Certainly possible though.

I hope not. I want that game to be build solely for the PS5. 

I think Sony would have announced a PS4 version of GoW, if it were happening, in the blog post where they announced cross generation versions of Miles & Horizon.

Lol, guys we don't need to revise history

Sony announced 2 cross gen games out of their 4 launch titles and ONE cross gen game for 2021. The only place your iritation should be directed at, is Booty ;)

Or maybe they don't wanna say anything about the GoW sequel yet except for the fact that it exists. I'm banking on it not being on PS4 as well though. Horizon really upset me for some reason. I don't know why because I'm normally pretty chill overall. I didn't care that Sackboy and Miles weren't PS5 exclusive. They (like others have said here) already looked like PS4 games to begin with. It's all good. I ain't complaining...anymore. :-p

Then give it a damn price cut!

I feel like you should make a thread about that to really let people know :P

Good one



It's funny, people were ripping Xbox apart for crossgen.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Mainly because their PR is god awful. They have said NOTHING about their first party. The only game with gameplay got delayed to some time.. unknown.

They could counter the message of "all first party will be cross gen" by talking about their first party.

  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Microsoft did talk about their own games today. Ori and the Will of Wisps is now available on Switch.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I actually applaud MS for that, as I do now Sony for their decision to bring some of the PS5-titles to PS4. Games need to meet the gamers where they are, not the other way around.
