I do remember a rumour that they had to start over with a part of the game. I believe since they worked on it so much that they had to skip a generation, they had to upgrade a few things so that PS5 stronger hardware doesn't go to waste. It's probably the only GTA game for the this decade and they want to make it as next gen as possible. I expect a trailer like half a year before the game comes out.

Funny thing, Saints Row is also coming back and we've seen more of that.

Ah yes, Saints Row. I didn’t know a new one was coming until I saw a YouTube ad a few weeks ago.
I’ve played SR2 and 3. Imo both are quite mediocre, but I’m just a sucker for the humor in these games. Overall I rate the 2nd one a little higher than the 3rd, since the side activities were better and the character creation had more to offer, it also had surprisingly good radio stations. The open world is pretty fucking boring in both games though unfortunately. I haven’t played 4 and Gat out of hell yet, but I plan on doing so in the near future. I don’t expect anything groundbreaking but I’ll give it a shot.

As I’ve mentioned before I’ve been playing AC Unity recently, and I’m probably going to complete it this week. I’ll let you guys know what I think of it in my little review that probably nobody gives a fuck about. After AC Unity I’ll probably check out Yakuza 0, my first ever Yakuza game.

Ooh, I don't care about Unity, but I do care about Yakuza games, also never played one, at least not at home.

Thats why i think the delay might be related to not enough PS5 s being available, like it would not make sense to release it now if it s optimized for ps 5

I don't think they would wait for that, especially because I'm sure they will release a graphically inferior version on PS4. You'll see.

People love that they don't have to sell their PS4 games, only the console (if they want). Tell me what was the console seller on PS2 in the first year that was an exclusive? And the same for PS3 and PS4?
Within the 12 months of the PS2's launch in the US the console got:

GTA3
Metal Gear Solid 2
Gran Turismo 3
Silent Hill 2
Ace Combat 4
Jak and Daxter
Devil May Cry
Final Fantasy X

These games all went on to become genre-defining classics, were exclusive at the time and they are all different genres too, there was something for everyone. PS2's launch titles were lacking but even then there was something decent to be found - Timesplitters (shooter made by Goldeneye developers), Tekken, Street Fighter, Armored Core etc. But already a year later it amassed a formidable library.
You are severely underrating the PS2's early days. Many non-gamer people also bought it because it was the cheapest DVD player on the market by far.

Silent Hill games were amazing, they were so good back in the day, only thing that really annoyed me was one of the items you had to retrieve was a key that was in a kennel in a front garden, like how could anyone find that?? Nostalgia all over, great games.

I can’t take console gaming seriously after the 360/ ps3 gen. I don’t see why I would shell out the cash for one when I could get a pc workstation that would last 2 console generations for a fraction more. Plus it’s modular and you could use it as a pc workstation..

There are no great console exclusives I care about anymore. Maybe Gran Turismo but that’s about it. 90% of the good games coming out right now are just re-releases of older games.

If split screen multiplayer/co-op was still a prevalent thing I might be tempted, but it seems as though Sony and Microsoft are focused on enhancing single player experience. If you want the best single player xp you’ll always end up better going the pc route. It’s just more of everything.

Consoles are supposed to be about fun. It seems Nintendo is the only company still doing this.

Good post, I do have a few comments -
most of these games came late 2001. That is still one year+ of waiting for these exclusives. In any case, I think we both agree that both PS2 and PS5 had to wait a bit to get the system sellers....Year 2 will be really great.

Agreed about TimeSplitters, classic game.

When you don't think about exclusives but all games in general that were released in Year 1, both PS2 and PS5 did a lot better in first year than PS3, Xbox360, Xbox1 and PS4. Many people don't play games on PC, so games like Resident Evil 8 and Psychonauts 2 cannot be ignored.

I will not understand why would users of PS4 be angry in any way about the situation. Your digital and physical PS4 games ALL work on PS5. You sell your PS4/Pro and buy a PS5 when/if you can. Finally Sony listened to the fans.

I understand the home multiplayer argument, that is why I bought Switch before I bought PS5, both are used about the same.

Please do check games like Returnal on Youtube, some wild original shit

big rip to sony fanboys.

the ending had a wee nugget..

Upon close, we will offer as many Activision Blizzard games as we can within Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass, both new titles and games from Activision Blizzard’s incredible catalog. We also announced today that Game Pass now has more than 25 million subscribers. As always, we look forward to continuing to add more value and more great games to Game Pass.

Apart from Call of Duty, I haven't played or had any interest in another game on the PlayStation.

Starcraft is a PC game.


They are all very popular games though, true.

this deal makes no sense...

Sony outsells Xbox everywhere. Xbox doesn't sell outside of the US. Instead of buying call of duty for the price of Marvel + DC + Warner Brother or of FOX..... why not just make Halo and the other XBOX games cross platform.

Cod has been getting worse and worse for 10 years now. Hopefully MS puts them in a good direction.

Interesting to see what happens here. I've been eyeing up a series s for the last year (have a ps5) but there are no games that appeal to me at all, xbox exclusives are what, forza and halo? I loved halo 3 but all the negativity around the MTX has put me off.

if Sony outsells Xbox, it would make sense for xbox to invest and gain market share, no?

btw, to put things in perspective, microsoft paid half the market cap of Sony, for activision :lol:.

starfield, fall out, skyrim and other bethesda projects like wolfenstein and/or Obsidian games, outer worlds.

plus add activision to list now, microsoft will have a lot of exclusives potentially. Microsoft has so much money that if it decides to invest, sony will have an uphill battle to compete.

Game pass plus series S are insane value.

Oh yeah, in a year or two when these games all come out I'll definitely buy one, I just meant right now.

And yeah the cheapness is ridiculous. Especially if like cod and those others you mentioned comes to gamepass. Honestly might decide to go for the x of that's the case.

I'm just glad I have adult money now. As a kid this would suck.

I did laugh though when I seen someone comment MS should just buy Sony at this stage. They could probably afford it.
