Why Sony makes the best games
 

 


This is why Sony makes the best games I remember hearing a dev say MS EA and all these other game companies are driven by board members to make money....

If you idiots think big name Bethesda games are going to be exclusives you're an idiot. The reason why Sony doesn't buy something like a Bethesda is because it would be a money hole over creating and expanding your own studio.

MS didn't buy Bethesda higher than it's value to lose out on money dumb dumbs... Phil Spencer never said all Bethesda games would be exclusive he said the exact opposite of that.

While I agree Sony makes the best games and what not I’m iffy about your reasoning for Sony not buying Bethesda.

Now I don’t know personally but someone on Reddit pretty much explained any attempt of a block buster purchase like a publisher would kick off a bidding war, and unfortunately there’s just no outbidding Microsoft. Look at what happened with Leyou. Sony made a bid, but Tencent just had more money to put up and offer. It’s not just money either, there’s a lot of variables that goes into a purchase and essentially you’re still taking a risk to make whatever back. Studios work differently as it’s more of an internal decision that doesn’t have shareholders involved that would go for the best offer. If it’s not Microsoft in the west it’s tencent in the east. Sony’s best approach would just be head hunting talented studios and putting some money behind them or just opening new studios and promoting talent from within. We all know it’s quality > quantity.

Also, if Days Gone 2 is in development we have to suspect more of the article to be inaccurate. Even though Jeff Ross said it’s accurate. Since you know, to “pitch” a project means you’ve yet to start it.

I heard this is a real good interview. And that a lot of doom and gloom regarding Sony lately was all speculative bullsh*t.

IMO when it comes to Sony and Nintendo I think they benefit greatly from having great leadership (ethical business practices aside) that know how to execute their visions properly, which is why both companies seem to always have periods that are super fruitful. That's what Microsoft needs to figure out, spending all that money don't mean sh*t if you built on a shaky foundation and you don't have a great grasp on the kinds of games you wanna make or in what ways you want to try and innovate. Also helps if you're able to establish an identity or two when it comes to your games. Sony perfected that 3rd person cinematic sh*t and dropped a game in a post apocalyptic setting one month and another based in Feudal Japan the next.

I only play on PC... YOU DONT UNDERSTAND BUSINESS IF YOU BELIEVE BETHESDA GAMES WILL BE EXCLUSIVE YOURE IN DENIAL!!!

Phil Spencer said it himself that there will still be games coming to playstation he never once said future big name titles will be exclusive to Xbox and it's doubtful that would ever happen.

The dumb thing is thinking MS would buy Bethesda over it's value and then sale it's biggest games on the console with the smallest user base and lose money on your purchase instantly. That would make 0 business sense.

This is why Sony would never purchase a big studio it literally serves no purpose. Insomniac was going down hill and it's games did better on Playstation anyways.

It would make more sense for Sony to buy Bethesda and do exclusive games more so than MS doing it. Xbots are delusional if they think MS would actually lose money on a purchase like that.

That's not why they make the best games (which they do), but you wanted to make a positive Playstation thread today and a negative Xbox one and it being Sunday the news is slow. You won the day.

Personally I don’t think they’re going to make it all exclusive. I think it’ll be day and date with gamepass, maybe some extra perks for Xbox players. But there’s too much money on the table to just say welp too bad so sad. Wasn’t Xbox pushing the pro consumer narrative? Wasn’t it Phil saying locking away games is anti gamer? Regardless, I just don’t see it even if they’re banking off gamepass.

"The thing I want you to know is this is about delivering great exclusive games for you that ship on platforms where Game Pass exists. And that's our goal, that's why we're doing this, that's the root of this partnership that we're building - and the creative capability we'll be able to bring to market for Xbox customers is going to be the best it's ever been for Xbox after we're done here."




My man can't read. The message is clear.

Enjoy deathloop and Ghostwire and then transition to the final stage of grief.

This is all talk until they deliver. I will say their studios have been k*lling it tbh for the past year, but for PC imo. Although I know Flight Sim and a few others will hit console soon, I don't think they had very many games that console goers would gravitate to.

they quite literally said outside of current contractual obligations, the bethesda deal was to have exclusives on platforms supporting gamepass.

let the games actually drop and see where they land instead of going off about your imaginary business acumen

@ u slapped but how many of those does Nintendo even still make exclusively for their systems?


don’t care about their history, we’re talking about the present.. snake, final fantasy guy, street f*ghter, etc have nothing to do with Nintendo currently



other than Mario, Zelda and Pokémon, who else they got? half the pic is some fairy dudes with elf ears and a bunch of old franchises that they no longer make and u wanna argue that that’s better than Sony’s current franchises?

Right. Sony don't make the best sh*t. The highest rated EXCLUSIVE (cause they love that word) right now is Breath of the Wild. Nintendo literally had two exclusives up for Game of the Year recently. Had the highest selling exclusive last year. Stop with that.

For anyone that's played days gone is it any count? I got put off from buying it back in the day hearing it was just the same boring sh*t over and over or something like that so never looked too deep into it after that but now that I've gotten it for free basically is it worth it to invest the time downloading it with a slow a*s internet connection then hours into the game or naw?
