Square Enix wont happen, I think people need to let these kind of fantasies go. Sony will just do time limited exclusives, it works for them.

I think Sony will be eyeing the following, depending on how their games perform in terms of sales and critics:

Deviation
Illfonic
Arrowhead
Camouflaj
Ember Labs
Lucid

Maybe Remedy and ArcSys down the line, but not as likely.

Illfonic
Arrowhead
Camouflaj
Ember Labs
Lucid

All of these are an utter waste of money. They won't move the needle at all and that should be the aim of exclusives....not to simply have another game to sell.

It takes time and energy to manage all these studios and those studios for the most part would just be adding unneeded fat.

ArcSys makes sense due to anime and fighting games synergies and the possibilities stemming from their engine and knowledge of their niche.

They need to either buy Square or something like MiHoYo...... both have massive presence on mobile, which is where the massive audience Don Mat..... I mean Jim Ryan is looking for.
While both of them would add to the main console platform simultaneously and cripple competing platforms.....
Once they get enough games on mobile, they could have exclusive items through PS+, pushing massive numbers to subscribe and exploding the potential of the brand..... also pushing mobile users to buy a console as they would already have a sub to PS+ for the mobile games.

Remedy or buying Oculus wouldn't really expand things much either, so I'm not a fan of those moves too.

This is really my issue with Jim... he has no strategy like this articulated or seemingly conceived.... because from all the evidence it is really uncoordinated, with streaming and then offering PC ports which cannibalize PSNow subs on PC and undermine the sales of consoles in the longterm.

There really needs to be some reflection on how they are running things over there.

I know that PS have a load of analysts working in various divisions but there seems to be less than zero strategic coordination, nobody joining the dots and the entrepreneurship and dynamism of early PS is not really evident at all.

God of War Ragnorak is up on PSN.
Description is as follows:
Kratos and Atreus must journey to each of the Nine Realms in search of answers as they prepare for the prophesied battle that will end the world.

I’m going in with the lowest of expectations.
Third parties releasing this year like COD.
At best I’m hoping for Binding of Isaac: Repentance dated, as that is scheduled for this year. Bigger titles will hold out for the game awards.

I don't know but here is YoY revenue using a fixed JPY:Usd conversion. Need to fix that but it won't change a huge amount.



Ignore the year subtotals, they are bad calculations
Do you think the Sony has improved from Q2, its understandable tho, as they were selling a less console in the month of July and August, and just picked up in September.

Ya i somewhat agree with you, but my heart want more games and announcement, but they explicitly said mainly Third party games. so FF 16, Gotham knights and the rest, there was a leak about the PS store pages being created for FF16 and some other 3rd party games.

I ain't probably 100% sure what the drops have been. I know the UK has been better recently.

I will add the individual categories of revenues and sales to my excel sheet this evening cause it might be interesting to see.

One thing I should add incase anyone wonders is that this is calendar year.

I got auto-renewed for PS Plus. Fuck off with that shit. I only got it because I found a deal for 30 bucks. 60 dollars is too much for that.

Been a while since I’ve updated but have added three rumoured collabs.
-Arrowhead
-Kojima
-Lucid

I looked at some other rumours but they came from dodgy Twitter accounts, so have left them off.

Guys,

I've just got a PS5. Love it. Problem is my GT7 preorder is for the PS4 version.

I have no fucking idea how to change/cancel my order. They're is simply no obvious place for me to chat with someone representing PlayStation to get answers, so I'm coming once again to the font of your collective wisdom.

Cancel or update my pre order, so that i can get the ps5 preorder rather than ps4.

How can i do this?

Probably best to call Sony and get them to fix it over the phone or just pay the difference for the upgrade to PS5, since the PS5 version is more expensive by default.

Thanks for replying! I'd be happy to pay the difference as you say, but where can i find that option? Only on a call? I'm in Japan it's pretty hard to call overseas , it's pretty lame they don't have a chat function or anything...

PSN mentions a $15 upgrade fee on mine, but no option yet so it may come after launch.
Do you have anything similar written on yours?

In other news ps5 Kena doesn't recognise ps4 saves, so I've had to start it all over... Good thing the game trained me up first time around so I'm a total boss this time... My original run got to the shadow world, so yeah got a few annoying bosses... But i think I've learned the lessons

It looks like a lot of MP games are coming in the next few years. And a lot of them may be released close to each other.

1. Arrowhead co-op shooter - likely 2022
2. Naughty Dog MP game - 2022/2023
3. Firewalk MP new ip - 2022/2023. Hermen already played it.
4. Guerrilla MP game - 2023? In development since 2018.
5. Twisted Metal f2p - 2023 according to Tom Henderson
6. London Studio online game - ?
7. Firesprite PvP shooter - looks like pre-production only started this year

Yup its the most likely game to be quickly announced and released in 2022, since Helldivers is niche.

2. Naughty Dog MP game - 2022/2023
Gonna be a while. I'll bet 2023.

3. Firewalk MP new ip - 2022/2023. Hermen already played it.

Took 3 years later for Ghost of Tsushima to release. Who knows when Firewalk's game will ship.

4. Guerrilla MP game - 2023? In development since 2018.
Its been cooking for a long ass time. Idk.

5. Twisted Metal f2p - 2023 according to Tom Henderson
Could def be 2023 reveal. Release in 2023 seems too fast, unless it really is just Destruction Allstars reskinned.

6. London Studio online game - ?
Maybe a VR game. Could get announced along with the headset reveal.

7. Firesprite PvP shooter - looks like pre-production only started this year
Idk anything on this one.


Yeah PlayStation has plenty of multiplayer games in the works. Deviation Games' game will probably have a multiplayer component too. Bend, Insomniac, Media Molecule, and others could all have multiplayer games / modes in the works too. Horizon Forbidden West even might have post-launch multiplayer DLC coming, like Ghost of Tsushim.

hey, question

i've finally got bloodborne, for free with playstation plus collection on my ps5.

is that a thing? do i now own it? or will it go away when my ps+ expires/stops being paid?

i heard that FF7 remake is also free via the same deal on ps5, with a free upgrade TO ps5, is this true? if i go on my console now can i just claim FF7R and upgrade it for free?

would i own it? or just be, renting it?
