Its really surprising as traditinally uk has been very pro xbox and this gen they might have a real battle on their hands.
Very pro Sony, i think you meant? But yeah, it is suprising, sort of. The 360 absolutely dominated in the UK, until the Wii, then when the PS4 launched - despite the 360 being the go-to platform for kids and adults alike - a huge swing to PS4 happened. Nobody i knew bought an Xbone on launch day, including Xbox fans. My brother is a bigger xbox fan than me and he kept his 360 up until around 2016.

So yeah, to see Sony lump the UK in with Euro, even though we don't and hopefully never will, use the Euro currency, is a slap in the face. Doubly so when you consider Jim Ryan is in charge.

Majority of the people i know in uk stuck with their loyalties last gen. Of all of them id say its pretty split between x1 and ps4. But the kiddies i know, nephews etc are all x1s. So i think sony have a bigger battle this gen. how did you know bethesda was gonna sell up last year? Lol

That's really interesting. It was the exact opposite in my social circle, almost everyone, including me, abandoned Xbox and picked up a PS4. Hell, i bought an xbone only to play Gears 3 BC and Gears 4. It wasn't until the X, Elite pad and gamepass did i really move back towards Xbox as my main console.

How did i know? Bethesda put out some pretty strong signals last year that not all was well. Seems as they're too big to fail, it seemed like a smart guess that someone was going to scoop up the IP's vs Bethesda going under. In hindsight, Microsoft buying them makes the most sense, though i thought it could have been EA or Acti. EA because of the GAAS and milking and Acti because they like their FPS games.

Was never on my radar, and probably never will be while it's $70.

I really can't wait to see how this price point affect overall attach rate in the first year. I think they are hoping for normalization to take hold and honestly I think it owuld if they didn't stack these games with MTX as well.

This game doesn't look like it belongs on PlayStation. I mean that as a compliment to PlayStation. This game looks bad.

Making qualitative judgments about a game based on a blog post + a non gameplay trailer.

Casuals...

Honestly sounds fun. But not worth $70. This would be a good $40 release I think

Looks kind of interesting, but not something I'm willing to pay full price on. Seems more of a bargain bin or PS+ game.
