There's a Doom-Ancient God's trailer that I'm seeing for the first time. As long as Microsoft can dangle DLC, story, and modes behind Gamepass they can modify and tailor price based on the individual. This isn't Oprah's you get a car. This is more research your data and see you haven't finished Skyrim and offer you another month for a dollar once you're lapsed. Tailored ads.. don't take an arrow to the knee.. finish skyrim for $1 or $1.50 during the inevitable price hike. Put gamepass on every TV they can get with just Peggle 2's of the world when it makes sense and Gears 5 type games whenever possible. Get onto the other consoles with a sweetheart deal and then take over. It's like accessing gmail on my iPhone. Google probably hates that. But Sony is probably in one of their worst positions in any of their console launches (1. no must have newish disc media 2. Unavailable stock 3. Near parity with Xbox 4. No mobile/cellphone game income 5. Theatrical Releases what they are 6. twelfth/last place in the streaming space aka non-existent). *Michael Jackson popcorn gif*

@topcyclist: I just prefer the dry erase board of game creation of 2021 to mimic what they looked like during the ps1 and ps2 era. Everything now is flip a switch if outcome A happens. Crank up the grind like Avengers if outcome B happens. Games are no longer released into the wild and gamepass is influencing/forcing developers hands in the same way the micro transactions first, always online 2nd, and cellphones are doing. I will never download a free-to-play game on my phone. I won’t allow myself to enjoy a mobile game for fear of what comes next. Read that again. Shame.

Gamepass isn’t good for the long term health of gaming. For me, at my age, it’s been perfect to catch up on almost every game I’ve heard the bomb/beast cast mentioned over the last 10 years. It’s great but I’m on a unique position where I’m more interested in playing Bloodrayne 2 on my PS2 than anything announced, unannounced, or imagined for the next gen so far. A Max Payne 1, 2, and 3 hitting backwards compatibility (please god with achievements) is way more ‘important’ to me than a Max Payne 4 announcement and what that absolutely means in 2021 in regards to backend monetization features. Gamepass, Fortnite, PsPlus, and Rainbow Six type games are erroding what new releases even mean. The audience is being trained to have a wait and see attitude which is going to push the microtransactions or shadow drops of games to capitalize on 15 seconds of Twitter fame and pay what you’re paying Ninja to say about your game works (like Apex legends which is titanfall 2 for poor people). But for me. Even worse is the inevitable future of exclusive game behind the gamepass pay wall or ps plus pay wall when $60/$70 is a dream for what it costs to play resident evil 8 10 years from now. It’s only the price of a cup of coffee a day. That’s how they get you. That’s what’s going to happen with the next Fallout or Starfield. The online only games of the Division are training us for the Single player not mmo but pay like you’re playing an mmo, experience.

I’d like a Fallout 3 remake that has the balls to name names of contemporary figures. Bethesda is in DC after all. Aren’t politicians exempt from the typical “likeness” disclaimer. With some deep fake work using archival footage that would be on the level of Forest Gump. Not going to happen. Oh well.

@thepanzini: Miles was a budget game. It's not hard to hit the NPD charts when the games people actually are playing are older releases like Rainbow, Fortnite or Warzone.. Fall Guys probably made as much money or more than Miles Morales did despite being free, all things considered. Evidenced by Sony buying the studio. As streaming picks up on planet earth more and more people are going to drift to a PC. Everybody wants to be the next Tatman or whatever and doing that from a PC is really kind of the gateway to the impossible. Which is bigger? The controversy leading up to Last of Us 2 or the discourse around the game post release? Single player games need that pre-hype to have any kind of launch hype. And post launch hype of a single player experience is just not a thing anymore.

@thepanzini: IDK ps3 and PS4 were abject failures in Japan. I imagine the giant box that is PS5 will do worse. With even Switch conquering some of the next gen graphic intensity with their own cloud gaming for games like AC: Odyssey and Control most Japanese customers already have a box (in the Switch) that can handle the edgier non-Sony exclusives, which they didn’t care about anyway. Microsoft has a bigger in to everybody’s phone and computer (nobody is clamoring for Horizon or a days gone on pc.. no groundswell to speak of). and if they are still manufacturing the One-S and can leverage xcloud through a one-s browser I might not be so keen on picking up a Series-X because the price of that translates to about 30 months of game pass a the full month to month rate. I’m playing the latest games without a big sloppy PS5 that the assumption is will be available but when manufacturing push comes to shove manufacturing at a loss prior to competing with fridge manufacturers and every other kind of device is going to put the squeeze on Sony who is expecting economy of scales in 2022 not 2025 (we all assume thing go back to normal.. don’t think so). The pandemic darlings that come out are going to be the Indy games and remasters. Not the well trodden 3rd person Sony repetitious ad infinitum staples. Game development in the world of telephone is going be terrible and I’m looking forward to remasters and what Microsoft can do with their old catalog that is minus microtransactions which are going to ramp up exponentially as a means to save studios.

Bethesda has more than enough games for me to get cracking on my oldish laptop which is going to keep me in PC ecosystem for months while games for PS5 underperform. 4 million doom sales. If everybody that owned a PS5 in 2021 bought ratchet that might be 4 million copies. Doubt it.

I absolutely will take a $499 and $599 ps3 as a college kid personally. I will take wii motion controls personally. Just like I’m taking their failure to combat scalpers personally. I don’t just take bullshit. Sorry.

This kind of discussion is the only thing that drives these boards. I’m sure this is how all the best ideas on post-covid ideas are getting shot down via zoom in the corporate world of making games. Sony and Nintendo can kick rocks. Microsoft is keeping them from really having the stranglehold on games like disappearing games on March 31st. .. etc.
