Thread Does Nintendo (or Sony or MS) know when you play their consoles and which games?
Without detailed analytics on user behaviour and actions taken in-game no company would be successful nowadays. Game wise, they know everything. Some examples: How much time you've spent playing a game How many times you have used the X feature of the PS4 console What type of games you usually play and which ones you are likely to play in the future How often you login, what times do you login, how much does each play session last, etc The list is endless.

Thread So, is Kojima Productions teasing something?
I believe it will just be details about the PC version of Death Stranding, probably some extra PC perks? Who knows. By the way I need to update my title, treat the above as personal speculation and not something official. I don't work for 505 Games anymore. I'm in the mobile games industry now working for Socialpoint.

Thread If Sony presents the PS5 in August, during Gamescom and releases it in November. Realistic possibility?
Haven't read all the posts in the thread but if they leave it so late it doesn't do them any favours in terms of marketing the PS5 to the masses. You would end up having a very short marketing campaign, very late in the process.

Thread If PS5 has full backwards compat will you start a retro collection of disks?
My PS1, PS2, PS3 and PS4 discs must be in the 4000 to 5000 range, probably even more. Thanks but no thanks. After having moved countries a couple of times I just can't keep collecting physical discs anymore. Digital all the way I say. But Sony should really enable gifting through the PS Store, this is long overdue.

Thread Housemarque's new AAA game will be revealed in the coming months; Stormdivers on ice
One of my favourite studios ever. Even back in the days when they were known as Bloodhouse/Terramarque their Amiga games were of such high quality (Super Stardust, Elfmania) Resogun, Alienation, Nex Machina and Matterfall were such good games. Can't wait to see what they come out with.

Thread [@GIBiz] Confirmed: PlayStation will not be attending E3 2020
E3 has become very costly for companies, even for the likes of someone like Sony. I'm guessing they are not seeing any ROI for the money, time and overall investment they are putting into the whole E3 show. Felt weird being there last year and witnessing the room PlayStation used to occupy being used as a storage space facility.

Thread Death Stranding coming to PC in Summer 2020 (505 Games publishing)
"I fight for the users" was my quote when I worked at PlayStation. Even though I still believe in being honest, upfront and stating things how they actually happened, I need to check every little wording of every NDA I have signed to make sure I'm not breaking any rules. I have a family to feed and I'm a bit tired getting "blamed" for things I shouldn't be blamed for in the first place. There is a lot of - in my opinion unneeded - drama in the videogame space so better to be safe than sorry ;)

Thread Death Stranding coming to PC in Summer 2020 (505 Games publishing)
I'll check my NDAs over the weekend and see what I can and cannot state around this story and dramarama. Imagine knowing the whole story and not being able to talk about it right? RIGHT? I need to update my job title (I work at Social Point as the Lead CM right now), I left 505 Games at the end of August, when Control launched.

Thread A game you will fight to the death to defend no matter what
Bloodborne. Frame pacing issues, drops frames like crazy around bosses that take up half the screen or all of it for that matter, no sweet 60 fps but man that atmosphere, that lore, that music, that... it's a beauty!

Thread CONTROL |OT| Welcome to This Oldest House of Leaves
It's bank holiday here in the UK and I'm typing this message in my pyjamas. I will try and get an answer from you tomorrow morning when I communicate this to the Brand manager at 505 Games. Game should unlock on the 27th of August. Unlock time should be based upon your region if I'm not mistaken. can maybe assist further on this.

Thread Control - Launch Trailer
This is true. If you upload at 4K on YouTube it compresses the footage far less. I know people that shoot with their cameras at a sharp 1080p, then upscale to 4K in order for their YT footage to show crispier when they upload.

Thread Control - Launch Trailer
Personally, I would also love the trailers and everything to be in 4K but think that you would then get people thinking the game runs in 4K resolution across all platforms/versions and this might create confusion. Having said the above it still looks stunning in the 1080 file on my PC. It's just that the YouTube compression doesn't do the game any favors. As a sidenote, like Thomas Puha (Remedy Communications Director) stated earlier on, the game runs at 30fps on all console versions.

Thread Control - Gamescom 2019 RTX trailer
What you see in the trailer are real-time ray-traced reflections, with optional realistic transparency, ray-traced indirect diffuse lighting, and ray-traced contact shadows. Scenes are a bit dark and some are being shown for only a couple of seconds but we have other RTX trailers on the Control YouTube channel uploaded which showcase how awesome Control looks if you have a buffed up PC to run it. Here are all the official RTX videos we've published:

Thread Cyberpunk 2077 @ E3 2019
I attended the closed doors CDPR presentation. Game looks dope AF and since CDPR played the game and showcased it to us, I find it weird that people have an opinion about how it plays. I mean, honestly, they just watched. Personally I found the presentation awesome.

Thread Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Review Thread

Thread Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Review Thread
I didn't work directly on this project guys but I know everyone at 505 Games, ArtPlay and Way Forward put their hearts and souls into polishing this as much as possible. The game went through development hell, it changed so many times and there was so much back and forth on many things, I'm glad it looks and plays the way it does. Yeah ok, there are some small bugs here and there but the teams behind the game are giving it the love and treatment it deserves so pretty sure these will be addressed rather quick. On another note since I didn't work on the game directly I'm not in the 505 credits but I'm in the backer credits list. LoL Switch version drops tomorrow. Also can't wait to receive my $300 backer stuff.

Thread Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night – Release Date Trailer (June 18th for PC/PS4/XB1, June 25th for Switch)
Shedding some light on this trailer since you guys loved it so much (by the way I'm not the CM for Bloodstained - wish I was - but I work with our Creative team on a daily basis) The idea behind the negative comments was after (our multimedia guy) and (Brand Manager) discussed it and thought it would be cool to go ahead with it. We have lots of cool and funny ideas like this in 505 but we don't always go ahead with them in case people sometimes interpret these in the wrong way. Thankfully this was received in the way we wanted it to. On another note, it was 505's decision to polish the game as much as possible and to seriously consider all the users feedback (some of this was also mine - I'm a $300 backer!) Wanted to state this because usually publishing companies get all the hate and never any credit. Not sure if Jason who is the CM for Bloodstained is on these forums so wanted to come and say this here. It's very nice to see this is getting such a nice reception. Thank you on behalf of 505 Games and like I said, apologies if is here and I haven't seen him. He's the CM of Bloodstained, not me :)

Really don't know bro. I can check with Jason and if he's not on these forum I'll come back and let you know. Just don't want people to think I'm the go-to guy for this title cause I'm not that's all. I work on Control and some other games but not Bloodstained. What I do know is that the Switch version is coming out a week later I believe (25th of June I think from the top of my head). Best place to get answers is the Bloodstained Discord, it's huge --> Jason is "Question" on that Discord server :)

Thread Control gameplay - Early Prototype Vs E3 2018 Demo walkthrough (WIP)
I was wondering if this was going to be picked up by ResetEra, glad you guys like it. Yeah, like I said, it's old news now. We have received builds since then which have had a ton of improvements in all areas but you'll see some new footage quite soon. This comparison video was part of the December TwitchTV stream done on the Remedy Twitch channel. I guess not many people noticed it since it's only 6 minutes long and the stream was more than 90 minutes. Check the stream below, I've archived it on our Control YouTube channel. There's Sam Lake, Courtney Hope, Thomas Puha and Mikael Kasurinen talking about Control. All orchestrated by :)

Thread Control Announced (Remedy, PS4/XBO/PC, Gameplay Trailer)
Disclaimer: I am not a dev :P So this is what the folks at Remedy who are developing the game told me: What you are seeing in the first part of the video is a 3D mesh which is the structural build of a 3D model consisting of polygons. 3D meshes use reference points in X, Y and Z axes to define shapes with height, width and depth. What we mean by wrinkle training is that the character tech team is "training" the mesh to go from one facial expression to another. So that video is basically Jesse's head mesh. Hope that address your question Dest.

Thread ResetEra's Most Anticipated Games of 2018
We have many CMs in 505 Games. Each one of us handles different games. I'm working with Remedy on P7 and another title which is being developed by Limbic Entertainment for which there is little information at this point in time but expect an update soon on this. At this point in time this is what is out there. ---> Bloodstained is being handled from the community side of things from our US office, we have a new CM which is looking after the title. I'll encourage him to subscribe to the forums so he can give you all an update on things to come :) (I'm in the UK office) He joined the team quite recently as well. If there is something we can communicate, trust me we will :) And we take feedback really seriously at 505 Games. I know this sounds as a cliche and you hear this a lot but the team at 505 Games really value the feedback from the community. A good example is Portal Knights where a big percentage of the new features were based on community feedback
