Don't know if it has been posted or not but there is a rumor circulating that sun set overdrive will hit PS4 and possibly switch in 2020.

This comes from a Tweet made by Ryan AlphaFoxWarfare
No point reading any further then.

For SSO to feasibly make it to other platforms like PS4, we'd be hearing news or stuff similar to how Alan Wake's pub rights went back to Remedy.

Doesn't Insom own the rights to SSO?

I'm not sure about this guys background but I remember insom themselves saying SSO2 will happen with or without MS.

They have the IP but not the publishing rights.
At this point, given everything Microsoft and the XB team have said I don't think they're about that Single player life so holding on the publishing doesn't really help them. When we take into account everyone at insom gushing about their relationship with Sony and the PS4, my guess is that they're most likely chomping at the bit to get SSO on PS4. Even if they only sell 500K units it'd be a boon for the studio imo.

While we're still discussing Sunset Overdrive, I just wanted to say it's kinda ironic when Insomniac find more success with Ratchet 2016.

Back at Gaf, I read how they wanted making their own original IP, so they turned to Xbox.

I watch the videos about how passionate Insomniac making Sunset Overdrive & it could be their best game yet, but I find it unfortunate for me that I wont be able to play it, because that time-up till now, I wont buy a Xbox 1.

So the game out in 2014, the reviews & receptions, etc.

Fast forward to 2016, reimagining Ratchet out, and it became the studio's best selling game to date + further the amazing golden opportunity with Spider-man knocking on their front door.

So, yeah...

They found their luck, audience & success more with PS currently.

I would love to play SO (+ sequels) on PS4/5 someday.

If someone has Japanese skills, translation is shit for me
EDIT: Sorry, he is talking about Dreams.

EDIT2: Ok, now the right awser, he is talking about is time in BitSummit and Indies games in general, the WWS support of Indies titles and the Chinese/Japonese developers for indie games.

Sony Results for Q1 (April-June) will release soon (30th July)
If 100m has been reached, a PR will follow fast I guess

They need to ship 3.2m to reach 100m shipped PS4 and 37.1m PS4 games to claim officially that 1 billion games have been sold (shipped+sold through digital)

With the slow pace in NA/Japan, not sure that Europe and new markets can offset the decline.

Last Q1, 3.2m PS4 have been shipped.
I think 2.7m PS4 shipped and 38-39m games sold for this Q1 thanks to MK11, Days Gone, CTR and back catalog of publishers thanks to sales and Days of Play

Will do a thread about their results
Thanks, looking forward to that.
I thought the 100m sold goal would be reached around now. I guess we will have to wait a little bit longer though.

Considering last quarter ps4 shipped 3.2M and that is the amount needed to reach 100M, we will very likely be < 1m away from the 100m milestone

It’s a shame you probably won’t be able to play it because it is a good game, but it’s not anywhere near their best imo.

The core of SO is neat, the art style is very pretty, and the game feel is as great as it is in most of Insom games (Fuse *cough cough*). But it gets monotonous and could do with some variation in set pieces.

Spider-Man and at least a couple of Ratchet games, like A Crack in Time/Up Your Arsenal are comfortably better. Still worth playing if you get the chance though.

I’ll pass on SO and that ridiculous humor. If they get some actual good writers i’d be down with buying a sequel from them.

Really though, I don’t see why they can’t just incorporate what they did in the next Ratchet game.

Do you guys think Sony will revamp the system OS/UI for PS5? I'm thinking they might not need to from a functionality standpoint, and it would be nice if they can build on what they have, but I can see the same UI feeding the the whole 'PS4.5' narrative.

It would be good if they revamped the PS store though. Maybe somehow integrate it into the system UI itself, instead having a separate launcher.

I think they will upgrade the store and put key features that are missing.

Should Sony should launch PS5 with PS5P?
Would this devalue PS5?
Would it help developers?
Would having one SKU at a loss and one at a Profit help Sony deliver a stronger platform?

Anyone feel free to answer, even more so, hopefully some insiders (can just be in the tech field too) can share on the developer part.

I played Sunset Overdrive on PC and I found the game straight up bad. Like not even mediocre.

Wonder where they'll put Concrete Genie, fall of 2019 is already pretty packed as is.

Eh, maybe October? To be fair though, SIE got MediEvil coming out then. No idea if they want to have them launch near each other. I think September could work despite it being so packed. Late Sep - Early Oct maybe.

yeah, that seems to be the best spot. Maybe they should push towards December at this point, since there is basically nothing there yet

It could just be that the press got hands on with it. That's sometimes when they announce dates and/or additional details for games.

I know that there's been a lot of speculation about cross-gen games, but Sony has no real history of it outside of MLB and just plain remasters. They didn't try cross-gen versions of GoW2 or GT6 even though both launched after their new consoles launched. So I wonder if they'll continue that or keep certain games PS4-only or move them to just being purely PS5 games?
Well PS2 and PS3 were so different though that making a port would have delayed those games or cost more in labor. It wasn’t easy to port but the PS5 has the same architecture so cross gen would be easier.

Probably just a blog post with launch date trailer.

So guys, yours truly Angie22 is going to make The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan OT.
And I need suggestions for the OT title (I'm really bad at it). The best suggested OT title, I will give that person credit for it in the OT.
