Gamer83 commented on Sucker Punch Recruiting for Spectacular Sandbo...:

Please, please, PLEASE let it be Spider-Man. I'm more of DC fan but I really enjoy the Spider-Man universe and think it could make for some great games, it just hasn't had the right developer. Batman was finally done justice by Rocksteady. I'm a big fan of inFamous and when I played the the original game I was thinking it felt like the Spider-Man game I always wanted. If there's one developer I think can pull off a Spider-Man game right, it's Sucker Punch. Make it happen, Sony.

Well, I'm just stating what I've seen. Which was literally nothing in the way of in-store ads for R&C, good to know that maybe it got some advertising at some Gamestops across the country though. Still, it should've had a bigger marketing push. I'm not changing my opinion on that. Sony spends so much money on unnecessary bs that could've be better spent towards marketing the great games it publishes, and there are a lot of them, and that's what bothers me.

@Bigk2016
MW 2 for multiplayer, but I thought MW 1's campaign blew away the campaign in both MW 2 and 3. And since the multiplayer was also well done, the original was the best all-around package. If only one of the Modern Warfare games will be remastered, they're definitely making the right choice with the first one.

I'm starting to get nervous this game won't come to North America and Europe at all. I don't play these games but I know a lot of people who do and was hoping for them they'd get it but this is Sega we're talking about.

Well, you'll probably disagree but if you ask me, since kids do exist, and there are families who game together, it wouldn't have been terrible to show the game off at E3. And it wouldn't have killed them to try and get the word out at Gamestop or Best Buy. A poster, something. There were no in-store ads, no tv, I'm sorry but for one of your best exclusive games, that's a poor job. And part of the problem is all the money Sony spends on unnecessary sh*t like VR.

It's not a 'Sony is bad angle.' I should've saved the snark and stated my real problem with the whole thing. I've given Sony's marketing team plenty of credit for selling the PS4 itself but on the games front, they leave a lot to be desired. The truly great games should get attention as opposed to getting thrown aside like they're nothing. At this point there's no single game that is going to push PS4 hardware because the marketing was so strong for the console it's basically sold itself. Now it's time to hype up the library which is starting to mature. Uncharted, right now, is Sony's single biggest first party property and it's made by the best in-house developer, so I have zero problem with that taking the spotlight. But games like inFamous: Second Son, Bloodborne, MLB The Show and now Ratchet & Clank are all great games that haven't been given the proper attention. SF V may be a game in the most iconic fighting series but it's a half-assed game and it bothers me seeing a company with so many great first and second party games advertise that over its own games.

@MadAussieBloke
But if the movie isn't successful it doesn't really do much for the game. Sony should've pushed this game harder and used it as a way to the promote the movie not the other way around. If it can spend the stupid amounts of money it cost to secure and advertise the incredibly lazy and half-assed Street Fighter V, surely it could've done a better job pushing R&C. Just goes to tell me the people inside Sony wouldn't know a good game if it smacked them all right in their faces. How a company can have a game like R&C and nobody there realize it's great is beyond me.

Good. Hopefully it has a strong North American showing as well. As has been mentioned before, all this without Sony doing a damn thing to help. Hopefully this means we'll see more R&C in the not too distant future. I can't recommend this R&C game enough. I'm on my third playthrough. It's just pure fun and it's quite the looker as well.

Gamer83 commented on Feature: What PS4 Exclusives Are Sony's First-...:

Tough call on favorite studio. I'm a big fan of Naughty Dog, Sucker Punch, Polyphony, Bend, San Diego and Japan but I went with ND. Like @whywai88, however, I'm very disappointed with the direction it appears Bend's next project is going. Doesn't seem like great use of the studio and if handled poorly (probably will be as Sony can't be bothered to spend a penny on advertising first party games unless it's one from from Naughty Dog) Bend could be the next to follow Evolution. I hope I'm wrong and that the game is awesome and a massive success but that's not likely.

Games I'm looking forward to the most that are announced... Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Gravity Rush 2, Gran Turismo Sport and Horizon: Zero Dawn.

@Bazza78
I doubt it, only because like I said, delays have been frequent this gen. I blame the sh*tty, hardware. You posted in an article earlier that PS4 and Xbox One came out too early. I disagree, they came out too late. In no generation has hardware ever been as pitifully outdated on day one as it was at the start of this one. The current hardware would've been fine in 2011, when PS4 and Xbox One should've hit, and we'd be looking at PS5 and Xbox Two this October/November. But the PS3 and Xbox 360 overstayed their welcome and this gen has been effected severely by it.

@sub12
inFamous: Second Son, Bloodborne, now Ratchet & Clank that's all it has right now in terms of quality of exclusives. And one is a remake. I like MLB The Show and those games have been great but I know they're very niche, so I don't count them either. It's been a disappointing gen all the way around.

Why would they delay it for PS4K if PS4K is supposed to release this year? Wouldn't you want to line up as many games to showcase the new hardware as possible? I called that it was a 2017 game right after it was announced, and kept saying it was 2017 even when people were saying otherwise. This is the remaster/delay generation, nobody should be surprised. P*ssed? Wouldn't blame you. Surprised? You haven't been paying attention.

Gamer83 commented on Soapbox: Sony Needs to Set the Record Straight...:

@get2sammyb
You're probably right in that at least getting something out there just to acknowledge they hear the concerns if nothing else, is better than nothing. However, people are still going to believe what they want to believe. Sony can say itself 'no game will be exclusive to the new PS4' and people will still believe what they want to believe about the old console being 'obsolete' or whatever. The internet gaming community loves to overreact when there's no reason to but ignores very real issues like not having the option to use external harddrives in 2016 or paying $60 for a fighting game that should be free-to-play. As they say, it is what it is.

@Anguspuss
MS is in 'shambles' all the way to 20 mil sales and Xbox One is out-pacing the 360 in its same time on the market. There's no doubt this move has created anger, I'm not arguing that with you, but I also think a lot of it is overreaction. There's no PS4K only games, there's nothing yet to suggest games will be unplayable on the vanilla PS4. It's just like the New 3DS, there has been one isolated incident where the devs f'ed up Hyrule Warriors for the base model, that game is also, frankly, a mediocre game from a decent at best developer. No dev worth its salt is going to create unplayable vanilla PS4 versions of its games. The 'Neo' version of some may blow away the version for the original, we'll have to see, but I don't think it's going to change things nearly as much as people think. The only thing I'd be slightly worried about is if MS is also doing a half-step in similar fashion, now devs have to create four different versions for two consoles, plus the NX and PC. Some of the mid-tier studios may struggle to adapt, the good indies and the good AAA studios will figure it out though.

@Rudy_Manchego
No, they will not, but I put that on Naughty Dog. The company went through a massive restructuring and clearly didn't have its sh*t together for this gen. Maybe for next-gen, if there is a next-gen in the traditional sense, Naughty Dog will get back to being as efficient as it was in the PSone, 2 and 3 days.

@ThroughTheIris56
So are you telling me the jump from PS3 to PS4, from Xbox 360 to Xbox One was impressive? If so I vehemently disagree. And even the Wii U wasn't an impressive leap in context of the entire industry. It was Nintendo's most powerful piece of hardware ever but it was no more impressive than what was already on the market from competitors. The last-gen lasted way too freaking long and has hurt this one. I stand by that 5 years should be the absolute max. Once we start getting to six and especially seven or eight, it is beyond ridiculous.

@Bazza78
Developers have been complaining about how the PS4 isn't that capable a piece of hardware. We can pretend all we want that PS4 still has a lot of untapped power, but if that were the case, devs wouldn't have been asking for more power and the PS4K wouldn't be a thing. No generation has ever had three pieces of technology more outdated on day one than this gen, that's a simple fact. That said, from a PR perspective it probably would've been better to wait and announce PS5 early in 2018 and release it in November of that year.
