That is what their current audience want.
I hate these cinematic games, but there is nothing we can do about it. There are too many people buying it, and sony is getting more money.
Look at how far cry and assasin creed look now. Its all because people bought them too much. We are stuck with that formula.
I am afraid, they will give that formula to Splinter cell.
Why you even bother playing Sony games if you hate cinematic games, that's their specialty. I think they even said publicly, they want to give gamers cinematic experience....that's the formula that they will apply to all their games
Stick with developers that prioritize gameplay and don't care much about cinematic; Nintendo, From Soft
