Games like these won't sell gangbusters. It looks good enough too.
Not going for a big budget may make this kind of games more sustainable.
Squeeze it in the conferences and some youtube videos is all the market it needs too.
I wonder how they handle those creature animations, can 14 ppl produce enough variety of assets and animations?
Studios nowadays do get close faster nowadays if they are not successful, margin of error is lower than ever.
The shareholders felt WWS not incorporating enough microtransactions in their games as weakness and Sony replied that the New CEO will pursue to solve this issue if you don't call that meddling than what is meddling?
Pretty cool info about Concrete Genie on the blog:
Can't hear the music where I am :(
I really hope we get a continuation of the God Of War video from PGS.
Quick question here guys, does anyone know any import sites that may have this Sunset Orange controller for ps4 for saleon Nov 14 when its said to be released? I tried to make a new thread but it doesn't seem that i have that option.
Some small Dreams updates from one of MM's co-founders:
Huh, I guess that might hurt them, since they won't get to sell addons like they did in LBP.
Just copy or import from someone better at it.
I'm buying the Move revisions and the PS4 camera once they announce the beta date.
Isnt MLB The Show 18 confirmed now.
I'm sure I saw it on YouTube
"Shareholders" said that? OK? You've all but created your own narrative here and it's really odd to see.
Exploring microtransactions = We're abandoning single player exclusives.
If they are delaying the game to refine it much more the it is good ofc but I think the main reason for such big delay for the game and the beta (more than one year) is the sudden forced inclusion of PS VR support in order to follow the new marketing trend of Sony. If this is the case then it is really not fair and within the limit foolish. Why delay the game and its beta to just support something just a minotiy have? They could have started its support post beta or even post game release. No one would be hurt.
Sometimes I think VR is pushing to hinder the quality or time spent to refine a normal game and is even prioritized as the trend of this gen, exactly how the trend of 3D TVs and games was last-gen which pushed devs top focus on it to the extent of even scamping the quality of some games in order to include 3D support. Until this trend died for both games and TVs.
To all devs, always keep in mind that gimmicks in video games don't last that long and the core gaming is what stays forever so always focus on it and make it your priority.
I'm now playing LBP 3 again.....and game is great! Only minus for me is long loading times. It's already been 3 years since last LBP game, still no new annoucments. I would really like new one, but since LBP 3 bombed in sales and it's launch put bad image on LBP series, I doubt it will happen.
Sony trademarked Syphon Filter in Europe yesterday https://euipo.europa.eu/eSearch/#details/trademarks/017446931
Hmm, Bend's busy.
I don't think they'd go to a 3rd party for that one, maybe if it's something VR. Meh if so.
Probably just keeping the name safe.
Fucking called it man. And now, to the dino crisis and medievil pleae.
It's just a trademark renovation, nothing to see here
Could be a remake.
Remake by Bluepoint.
Any news no Sonys Fall VR games? GameFly is showing March 2018 release dates for Bravo and Inpatient.
As for the microtransactions bit, you're taking one brief statement and running laps around the planet with it.
Any hope for getting an internally developed JRPG from Sony at this point. Would love to see wild arms or legend of dragon come back.
Official statement on first-party JRPGs 2 years ago: "No."
Official statement on first-party JRPGs 1 year ago: "We have first-party JRPGs planned for mobile."
Official statement on first-party JRPGs this year: "Erm, we noticed P5 and NieR doing really well globally... er... exploring opportunities."
Those brief statements are important because they are discussed in conference call and these things outline the strategy of the company for the future. As for source see this:
ConfusedGamer - for those not clicking on the link, might be worth pointing out that it's talking about Kenchiro Yoshida, Sony's CFO, and not Shu.
They've definitely entered a new phase in sales potential for their first party games compared to last gen. Felt like they had plenty of 1-5 million sellers last go around with a few exceeding. This time it feels like they got their fair share of potential 5+ million sellers and some could even approach 10 or beyond (TLOU2, GoW, Spidey)
Man, can't wait to get more news for Ghost of Tsushima. :D
Since Kenchiro Yoshida is into GaaS, why not invest in a true Playstation MMO? monthly subscription on top of ps+ mmm...
I think it's going to be something special.
What about Warhawk as GaaS?
