I didn’t know Gamepass had PlayStation studio exclusives aside from MLB The Show Jim is not responsible for the pricing of games that aren’t PlayStation Studio games. Take that fight to the other white men in charge.Jim salty about Bethesda purchase?
And gamepass too cause it's getting games day 1 that he wanna charge $100 for. Makes him look like a jerk.
So this is your last console generation?, thats a shame.
You get defensive so easily about your plastic box. But speaking of double speak.the thing is, why must he throw out the 'throwing money at it' quote?
isnt it clear the direction he is throwing shade at?
that is what irks me. double speako jimbo.
Can you show any evidence about that massive investment in money by Sony to get temporal exclusives? Because I could bet it's not even so big as you supposeOh Jim Ryan...Hypocrite much!
"“Throwing Money” Won’t Lead to Success"
... and yet, Sony has been throwing money around to get the most 3rd party exclusives/timed they can.
Get back to me when casuals know what Gamepass is like they do Netflix.And they killed of blockbuster and claimed the throne for streaming service for a long time.
Now we are seeing the effect netflix had, from Disney, Hulu and even Warner Brothers from their HBO service.
All those money spent were worth it for netflix, since they are gonna see a profit from now.
The streaming giant borrowed over $16 billion in less than a decade as it built out its content library. The strategy prompted criticism that the company was unsustainable.www.google.com
This is a small company, which doesn't even have a trillion dollar company backing it. And only revenue outside of it merchandise, and sub fees.
While gamepass has the subs fees, the dlc sale, the mtx sales, and game sales. Which netflix didn't have.
Now tell me again, if netflix were burning their money.
I'd like for Sony to keep showing their roadmap like they've done in the pastSony will talk about what’s next when they’re ready. Kena is coming in August so at least there’s that. Not 1st party but shaping up for 2nd party.
I dont want Sony to pull a MSFT and announce a bunch of games that wont come out for another couple years. Just show us shit when you’re ready
Later this year for the next OS update?
So no VRR, no SSD expansion, no DLSS alternative and other notable features missing at release until a year after launch?
What is going on with the OS team? The OS was not stable at launch. It still has issues. Rest mode is a mess. No multitasking. The OS is a downgrade from the PS4 and they’re taking a long time to get it up to par and just get it stable.
I am still haunted by the sound of the disc drive spinning into oblivion in the middle of the night while I slept while the damn thing was in rest mode. Which is fixed now but Christ it should not have shipped to customers with those types of glaring issues.
Next gen patches for past gen games - Gears, forza h etc. gears is specifically interesting as these patches mixed with new expansions can be easlily compared to Spider-Man mm in terms of generational improvements and content, main difference being that ms didn’t release these as stand alone games. Now we also got 3 big first party games coming out in h2 this year.
I think that for the next 12-24 months we will see Sony releasing many past gen remasters (at full price) and couple cross-gen games. I don’t think that Sony’s pipeline is as packed as ms one.
Can you show any evidence about that massive investment in money by Sony to get temporal exclusives? Because I could bet it's not even so big as you suppose
No they wouldn't. Also the issue isn't outselling, it's the claim they are being "stomped" yet you have no numbers and both consoles keep selling out.Drunks and sales tracking firms.
Plus, no hardware figures from MS. If they had outsold PS5 then you can bet they would tell us.
I mean if Jim truly believed throwing money won't lead to success, Sony wouldn't have been buying time exclusives, he seems more salty because his plan got ruined when Sony were going to buy time exclusive for starfield and failed, miserably.Ryan is absolutely correct. You need only to look at Amazon and Google to see that simply throwing money around won't work.
Now throwing money around COMBINED with creative freedom? Yeah, that seems to do the trick.
Lots to unpack here...As I remember, Bethesda didn't develop a 85+ MC game since 2015 (Fallout 4, 87). Fallout 76, Elder Scrolls Online and their DLCs didn't get great reviews, so who knows about the Starfield quality, until now we only saw a 'in-engine' CG teaser. And even if it turns out to be great, we'll have to wait at least a year and a half to play it.
For this year in MS we have Halo and Forza. Forza looks stunning as always, but Halo doesn't look pretty stellar and the recent Halo games let's say aren't the best ones in the series.
I'm super confident about Forza Horizon, but not about Halo and Starfield. And then for the 2022 and beyond MS games we only got CG teasers so we still have to see these great games.
Game Pass is a great renting service where you can play many games including very good games at launch, great to discover new indies. It's an all-you-can eat restaurant which is ok but they don't have the top quality dishes. But Sony has been releasing many GOTY winners or candidates year after year across the whole generation, so you can be confident with them that they will keep many top quality stuff. So they are like a chef restaurant, you'll pay a premium and may not like some of their dishes but you know that most of the stuff they'll have is top quality stuff (and they also have their own all-you-can eat service with more dishes/games than MS which is PS Now, in addition to the PS Plus games and PS Plus Collection).
I don't think so. PS4 was more powerful than Xbox one and costed less. PS5 is weaker and costs the same. The thing is Microsoft doesn't have any games thanks to Phill, but if they fix that either by making them or buying them then Sony is done.They've done WAY better than PS4 so far.
Sony has other departments to worry about. Microsoft on other hand has other departments generate money nonstop.
Sony can't recklessly spend money on its gaming division, unlike Microsoft.
Sony TV has other competitors, and are falling behind. Sony Entertainment movies division, which are competing Warner Brothers, and other companies. Then there is other divisions that need help to stay a float.
They can't splash their reserves recklessly.
Isn’t Sony gaming division the only thing keeping the company treading water these days?
Dumb people such as yourself pretending you're more clever than you are just show you aren't developed yet.
But it is true the PS5 has a better lineup than the PS4 did during it's first year on the market. I remember waiting a while for the really good games to come out in the PS4. With the PS5 there's already a selection of quality titles at launch.
Also there's no need for personal attacks. I don't believe I've ever insulted you and if I did offend you in some way I apologize for that.
P.S I also forgive you for that. I know that sometimes when things get heated we say things that we don't mean.
Yeah, just to back you up here...I had a PS4 on pre-order for launch but delayed when I saw there were no games I wanted till Second Son....
It was way slower getting started.
Had to have the PS5 on launch this time though.
If this shortage happened with the PS4 I wouldn't have been bothered by it. But it really bothers me this time around because there's so many games that I want to play. And that number is steadily growing.
I know Sony messed up with some things but they have been doing a good job in providing some great games to play.
I agree. Are you in the States? You should keep an eye out on emails for direct sales...
I Guess I was wrong about that, sorry.You have no idea what you are talking about... did you even take one look at their accounts before typing that?
PlayStation made 3.1 Billion in net profit last year, almost enough to buy Sega outright.
Sony as a company made over 10 Billion net profit last year and is one of the most profitable companies in the world.
Sony Music is joint largest music company in the world and has the largest back catalog of music in the world.... it also has a mobile game division that made Fate / Grand Order one of the biggest mobile games ever.
Sony film are making bank out of the streaming war and selling their films and TV shows to Netflix, Amazon and others.....
Sony bank is highly profitable, it is their newest wholly owned business
Consumer electronics and their sensor business also do quite well annually.
They are just after spending 1.4 billion on acquisitions for their music division.... including Paul Simons back catalog, AWAL and Son Livre..... and more acquisitions are coming for that division.
They also spent 1.2 billion on the Crunchyroll acquisition which they are waiting to get cleared.
So there is lots of spending going on in other departments......Why not their most profitable one?
I think some people are in for a rude awakening, but it makes sense to stack up on those $1 - $3 deals as much as possible right now.There is no way it stays that way. Microsoft can’t keep that up forever. Not as it grows and certainly not without raising the price. I’ll love to be wrong…. Honestly will, but it’s too much like a cable company strategy to lure new buyers to Xbox before the increase. Enjoy all this great day one news now, it won’t last But for rare releases:
