And... what? I'm not sure why, and I haven't kept up with the news, but I always thought this was going to be an animated movie, produced in Japan and localized for the West, just like the other Pokemon movies. I never expected to be live action. Anyway, the CG looks ok, but seeing Pokemon walking around in the real world is... weird / getting too close to the Uncanny Valley effect.
From Gamespot which quotes https://rockstarintel.com/2018/09/26/ps4-users-to-get-exclusive-rdr2-online-content-30-days-before-xbox-users/:
On the Bundle, it also says ‘Timed Exclusive for 30 days’ then goes on to say for ‘Online Content.’ We were aware PlayStation users were getting Exclusive content, this now confirms that PS4 Users will be getting content 30 days early. Red Dead Redemption 2 will also require a minimum storage space of 105GB.
So basically, there is online content, some of which is Playstation Exclusive for 30 days.
I think your friend thinks that depth equals player engagement, or in other words, allowing a player to fill in their own narrative, instead of what the writers had in mind. What exactly went through a character's mind when their text popped up on the screen? Was it sarcastic, serious, flippant?
While there's an argument to be made that that is depth, it doesn't take away that that depth is born from a LACK of information. I could say that this empty sheet of paper exudes sadness, but that doesn't make that sheet of paper any deeper.
In short, you could say that HE is the that is making it deeper than it actually is.
