OOOF. F in the chat for our boi Barozi

lol I'm all for it.

There've been so many of these 5min 1000G games lately that I can't buy and play them all. Getting a 1 million Gamerscore isn't all that special nowadays (around 1200 members on TA have more than a million) due to these games. Denying those game the necessary certification will prevent people from overtaking me which is nice.

I think it came from that Aab Animals game lol.

Stolen from Ryuu. These devs have some nerve lmao. Why do we have to beg like a saddo with cap in hand for these games to come over to Xbox? F off. 

I blame Microsoft for not being active enough in Asia when compared to Sony, they locked up Stelllar Blade and will do the same to this game if they see enough promise in it.

My biggest hope is that they look to expand in Korea in the future sincerely there are tons of good looking games coming out of there with Lies of P and Chirinos Odyssey being recent examples.



May went by so quickly. June is gonna be a banger month.

It is truly sad how many devs now have us port begging for games on Xbox. It shouldn't be this way, as a developer or publisher you are supposed to be capable of doing your own darn market analysis to see if a port is viable. Spoiler alert, most ports will turn a profit on Xbox unless it's either a very small indie dev with very limited development resources or a super niche genre JP game like visual novel or schmup, basically everything else is capable of making a profit these days due to the reduced porting costs brought about by Xbox and Playstation switching to PC based consoles starting with XB1/PS4, and moving even closer to PC with XS/PS5. On a small indie it probably only takes a 2-4k sales to turn a profit on the port, a bigger indie more like 10-30k sales, a AA probably 40-60k sales, and a AAA probably 150k sales at most in most cases, the more it sells over those rough break even margins the bigger the profit on the port.

A double-A Souls-like such as Phantom Blade Zero should easily be able to clear that break even point, as popular as the Souls-like genre has become, pretty much all of these Souls-likes that have reviewed even decently have sold alot of copies. 

Exactly this, I think the devs behind the Atelier series said the same thing last year. Like what metrics are they using to gauge demand from xbox. Amount of mentions? Spamming? And every time someone brings that up, they just reply with ask for it.

Isn't it common practice for Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo to tweet about games coming to their platform? Is IGN mad because Sony's showcase was a flop? Oh well, can't take it out on Xbox.

Oh yeah, IGN is definitely mad about Sony's showcase

Is she even on team Sony, I used to follow IGN more than I do now, but I thought she was mainly on the Nintendo podcast.

This will have to be a wait and see.
