Why is Avengers just till July? I mean...for a service game, that makes no sense. Just add it permanently.

SE biggest PC launch



Launch player base beats Abengers peak players


That is the Benji's claim using no actual Steam data but SteamDB data that is a 3rd-party tool... not official.

There are Square Enix games that sold way more... FFXV steam release was probably way bigger just to list one.

Again, enough time to finish all the SP content. If people want to continue then they'll have to buy the game, which goes on sale all the time.
I know but even RDR2 stayed five months, feels a little petty to add only three games out of which two don’t even stay six months on the service.

Also makes me curious if maybe Spider-Man will be added in July or around?

Black Panther and the big Wakanda expansion is next. That sounds bigger than both the two Hawkeye packs combined. They haven't said anything about Spider-Man yet. But he could be after the BP patch.

For PS Now to have more reach they should make it download-based on countries that don't support cloud gaming. To me even if could gaming is available won't bother with it unless wanna try something before downloading it.

Cool. I'll play Avengers for the campaign then drop it. Borderlands has never grabbed me but that's a good get.

Borderlands 3 is the best game between the 3. I really liked it although it has its issues.

I don't know. Could that be because it's FINAL FANTASY?
That is not the point lol

He is making a claim based in a false claim... "Outriders is the best selling Square Enix published game on Steam" is just false.
It just because SteamDB some weird data.

FFXV debuted pretty high on Steam.
Maybe the right should be "Outriders is the best selling multiplayer games that Square Enix published game on Steam".

Even the Pro and X versions have performance issues. Those are fixed with the next-gen patch. Better to just buy it on sale than deal with the PS4 version.

Yup the Pro was only playable on performance mode. The resolution mode was extremely choppy. On performance more it's ok, not too bad.

Borderlands is the best addition, Avengers is limping 2 its death. SE botched the launch of a game that should have printed money for everyone.

Only because Sony has been just putting the PS5 games on PS+, which you own if you have Now. Bugsnax, Destruction All-Stars, Control Next-gen Edition, Oddworld Soulstorm, Maquette.
We don't even know if it's going to be the PS5 upgrades yet. I was merely asking a question.

As a side observation, you really love your lists, don't you?

What a good lineup with The Long Dark, it’s an amazing survival game. Even though it takes time to get used to but the game is amazing. Also what’s with the short due dates?

Weird. Wonder what the licensing agreement is where they'd rather put it on Now for 3 months instead of Plus for 1?

More people = more microtransactions surely.

Very cool. Avengers got a lot of flack but it always looked like a decent game. I will check that out for sure.

Super excited because my brother just signed up for PSNow and his daughter is a huge Marvel fan.

I am shocked that you run around here talking about Game Piss and slagging it off, but are super excited about a game coming to Piss Now. :messenger_tears_of_joy:

It is because MS added a game to gamepass that people actually want to play day one... whereas Avengers is on it's last legs.


I have no ideia what that has to do with my post lol

Borderlands gets a rough deal from people. The dialogue isn't as good as 2, but the gunplay is fantastic. Wish it had been a better overall product, but you can't go wrong if you already subscribe. Definitely give it a go in co-op if you can.

Yeah, it's a solid game. I actually purchased it on Stadia a few months ago for only 99 cents, so (for me personally) this isn't really a game I needed. I'd still recommend it, and I'll probably give it a try here, too.

I guess Sony isn't going to match that MLB on Gamepass offer. I don't understand why though. I know people say well MLB only sells over 1 million. Gamstat says its more like 2 million but lets just say 1 million for the sake of argument. So if 50% or half a million people go to Xbox and sign up for Gamepass they probably won't unsubscribe so that's half a million people that are now a lot less likely to spend money on Games for PS4 or PS5.

That doesnt even include the media attention that the MLB Gamepass deal got and all those MLB the Show fans that will now recommend Gamepass to all their friends and family in the future.

I agree, this was disappointing. I would still like to see Sony add this game to one of their subscription services before it releases, but I'm not holding too much hope now.

Weird. Wonder what the licensing agreement is where they'd rather put it on Now for 3 months instead of Plus for 1?

PS Plus games remain playable for the user as long as the subscription remains active. With PS Now, they can have an expiration date. They're clearly hoping that players who really like the game might buy it after the duration is up.

So is this the only reason to own a new Xbox? You can rent the ability to play a baseball videogame?
