Honestly Sony can fuck right off at this point. So insecure that their market leader status could be even remotely threatened by their main competitor doing so many things better than they are that they resort to this underhanded shit. And it's completely unnecessary, the Playstation brand is so powerful and so firmly entrenched in gamers minds as the de facto choice that nothing will threaten its dominance. Why not spend the money you keep throwing in Square Enix's direction on things that improve your console? Hire a bunch of engineers to copy what Microsoft are doing with things like Quick Resume/Auto HDR/FPS Boost etc. Or hell, why not hire some people to get PS1/PS2/PS3 games working on your console? Pour that money into making PS Now a more attractive and comparable offering to what Game Pass is doing. Go buy (or invest in) a few gaming studio's if you have so little confidence in your own first party output that you feel the need to pay third parties to keep their games off of other platforms. Do things that make your platform better rather than making other platforms worse. I've owned every single Sony gaming device except for the Vita and count games like Shadow of the Colossus, The Last of Us and Journey as among the finest and most precious gaming experiences of my life. But I'll be skipping the PS5. I'm no longer interested in supporting a company that actively works against important gaming innovations like crossplay/progression and devotes more energy and resources than is reasonable to take away from the gaming industry rather than add to it.
Yeah, no. MS has been absolutely mediocre -I am being nice; It's been trash for the last ten years or so...- when it comes to managing its first party portfolio. This comment of yours makes no sense at all. People here have been doing some mental gymnastics since the Zenimax acquisitions, and I bet that were MS to somehow grab Square, we would find many of the outraged guys here explaining how great their reach would become thanks to the cloud, and how MS would offer them money and security... Nah, topics of timed, permanent exclusivity or acquisitions should be devoid of outrage, fury and fake concerns from now on...
Sony should buy Square Enix already. They always had a tight relationship and its clear that their relationship is still as strong as ever with FF7R exclusivity, FFXVI exclusivity and Forspoken exclusivity. Sony could extend their already strong first party lineup with a strong japanese publisher/developer and its apparent that not releasing their games on xbox or PC does not hurt SE all that much. Bonus effect is that people will stop crying about timed exclusivity.
It’s the way until Xbox does it then it’s anti consumer
Wut. Im saying, all the Sony dorks up in here that are like "MS too" aren't realizing this place has tons of Nintendo and PC players, so bringing up what MS does is not really the big gotcha these guys think it is.
This place is such a joke
Lol yeah, seems like the user read that thread and thought, "You know what, PS5 is better!" and writr this.
This absolutely reads like an add. The system and games have been alright, thus far I consider the system a PS4 Pro Pro. 95% of games I've played have been PS4 games.
Is this a retaliation post to the "Xbox has won me over this gen" thread from earlier? Calm down guys lmao, you don't need to shill for your plastic graphics box.
Nope… Xbox is better
This thread reads like a response to that thread. That's what makes it seem weird. Seeing the OP in a lot of threads defending the Playstation it just seems like he's triggered whenever someone says something positive about Xbox. The PS5 is great no doubt but he didn't list anything about it other than the PS+ collection and PS4 BC. Oh, the DualSense is great and Activity cards. There's no real thought put into the OP.
Who is this for lol. Reads more like an ad than anything else.
The console wars posts are here. Doesn't help that this thread reads like a reaction thread to the Xbox thread and is made seemingly to bait people.
This reads like an ad.
Lmao because it is. Sounds like a reaction thread to "MS has won me over" thread.
Wth is going on with the random capitalized words? It reads like one of those paid reviews on amazon
I like my PS5, but this genuinely reads like borderline astroturfing. What a bizarre post. Its been out 6 months and has about 3 exclusives. Who are you trying to convince?
What? You're like the poster boy for MS news. I know more going on at MS from you than I do pretty much anywhere. Why is this concerning to you? It's not like we don't think its going to be profitable but in your very thread people were assuming GP was already racking in the big dollars and you even would agree. It seems like you're the one that has too many feelings invested in what kind of narrative is happening with MS
This isn't an issue.
Don't think so. Being really affected by a media personality changing jobs is a worrying sign to me.
tough crowd whine and quote me endlessly
Look, I get it... Having to “research” graphic images to make sure the gore in the game is authentic is pretty fucked up. But at the same time, you got a job at a studio that works on a game that’s been known for depicting acts of extreme violence for decades. If you took the job knowing that, you kind of consented to being exposed to some fucked up shit for concept and design work. It’s like someone becoming a gynecologist and complaining about having to see some very gross lady parts inches from their face daily. lol
Not sure why you even bothered to reply again. We get it. All of the rest of us, myself included, are super fucking dumb and bad at the game, and you are incredible. I wish I was as observant and knowing as you in countless other games and this. Or you know... it isn't as clear as you think or else it wouldn't happen to multiple people and instead you're just a prick. :)
as the days go on, im ready for Sony to either bow out or get pushed out the gaming market. every month we learn a bit more on how they dont want gamers to unite.
I honestly have a lot of difficulties to understand the criticisms to the lack of a black woman in Overwatch. I mean: if the game would have included only white females characters I would have perfectly understood it but the roaster presents female characters from a lot of different countries that are not tipically represented in videogames. Like Egypt, India, Mexico... I mean, this is not common at all and in general I think that the game has one of the wider ethnic cast of characters. Probably it's because I'm european and I can't understand what exactly is the problem with the lack of black women in the game. Probably it's an USA-only problem? I don't know...
Yay he came in her
Era does have such reputation if you actually look outside of it.They're not even a drive-by. Delusibeta has made a lot of posts in here. And you're replying to someone who specifically wants to see Sony's bottom line reach max potential through this clause.Bro, I've seen you get banned for console warring and drive by posting at least several times. Sit down. Sorry if it's impossible to prove to someone such as yourself with clearly no knowledge of business or sales acumen but always comes into these kinds of thread with bad faith arguments and whataboutisms. You always appear in threads like this and do this. I've been in enough threads like this to have seen you enough times to actually have seen you banned for your bad faith arguments.
ITT: a very public demonstration why ResetEra has the reputation of being a PlayStation fansite. Like, seriously, there is no defending this outside of blind fanboyism.
. So a company can do some disgusting, shady shit that fucks over consumers and/or devs that is solely in their best interest for their bottom line and... it's okay because they're running their business?
Oh neat, mods coming to the defense of a multi-billion dollar company when nobody really misunderstood what was going on. Thanks for the hard work.
Oh boy, DF comparison threads are fantastic. One console with X in the name has higher resolution in a game: "Pff, you can't even see the differences. Framerate is KING." One console with X in the name has higher framerates plus VRR for basically a flawless output: "Framerate is KIN... fuck Framerate. Loading times ftw!" Just for the record: I LOVE what Capcom has done with both versions. Looks really, really good for both platforms and both of em deserve it. That goal post moving is extremely entertaining, tho.
Goin XSX here... VRR biches... ya’ll can keep your 6 seconds!
What a pathetic post. "Hey, it's weird that he's doing this thing here instead of doing it on the site." "FUCK YOU BLOODSUCKER JEFF CAN DO WHAT HE !!!!"
Well I guess I will be waiting for the PC version. Don’t wanna play the crappier version on inferior hardware.
*yawn* at timed exclusive complaints after the celebratory mood with which the Bethesda acquisition was met here.
Wtf are you even talking about? I swear, corporate stans crawling out of the woodwork ITT
I am having a hard time understanding how a games enthusiast, who is probably aware of things like these, would support a company like Sony.
You’re right I‘m just mean
Thanks for the spoiler you fucking idiot
Reminds me of this
I seriously don't think anyone, including Blizzard, needs permission to use a fucking hairstyle. Like c'mon now.
So no Call of Duty or Battlefield 6 this year? Good to know. What about release dates we're going to get next month during E3? All lies and make believe to keep the hype up?
It may not be, but its existence seems to annoy a lot of people who aren't in the MS ecosystem. And you can't put a price on that.
No, Jim didn't claim the game has MTX. He was talking about the publishers and industry in general, not Outriders and not People Can Fly.
That it comes to PS5, mostly, and full mod support would be very welcome. I don't want to have to justify a second console around the house. Yikes.
LoL Hey for the plauers, right? And remember, if it's a business, no one can criticize it.
Seems fair... Sony is sharing their hard-fought market leading playerbase with smaller consoles with struggling playerbases, and would have no reason to do so without an incentive.
