Lol. I mean I’m all for the cross-gen games, this means I can play Miles Morales and Horizon without buying a new console, so yay me.
But oh wow, what a shitty thing to do to talk for months about how these games were next-gen only and get their fans all excited when they knew it was a lie. And the $70 price tag is the icing on the cake.
Of all the games that could use next gen exclusivity, Demons Souls is the last one I’d choose for it. Nothing about the demo today made me think a decent, very playable version couldn’t be done on PS4. And PC loves Souls games. They’re just leaving money on the table.
Unreal Engine was also just pure marketing that’s all. The reality is most of their studios will be using in house engines.
Ironically, it’s Xbox that has most of their studios using Unreal, with two of them already confirmed to be built on Unreal Engine 5
It indeed was a pure marketing play but since it was the first reveal of PS5, it ended up being used as a baseline of what all PS5 games will look like. It ended up biting them in their ass today though
Exactly. Lol they even preserved the fog, which was originally meant for loading the other side, so… Why not just do that on ps4 as well? Seems artificially bolstered to be next gen. The actual surprise was Horizon coming to ps4, lmao who woulda thought leaving behind 100 million+ gamers wasn’t a perfectly good idea and Sony also cares about money.
The Demon’s Souls thing was a human error… Right… I have to believe that now?
I don’t expect it to come to Xbox, but PC, yes.
Happy about the cross gen stuff though, no reason for me to get rid of my PS4 for a while.
Now, God of War 2… 2021? Really? First I’m 99% sure it will get delayed to 2022 (wouldn’t surprise me if it’s already actually planned for 2022), they can’t be putting so many of their eggs in the same basket (2020-2021). Now, if it’s really planned for 2021, is it cross gen? How can a game of this scale be made in 3 years and take full advantage of the new HW, especially the SSD?
I’m kinda bummed by that actually, I don’t care if it’s 2022 or 2023, I want a full next-gen GoW2, not GoW 2018 with a fresh coat of paint and recycled assets/maps…
Phil Spencer is owed some apologies today, remember when he said that it was a meme that games couldn’t be scaled to different generations of hardware and took all kinds of guff for that. And the games people cited as examples against his way of thinking were… wait for it… Horizon 2 and Miles Morales.
