Have not seen many consoles available the last fortnight or so. Sad me. There seemed to be more trickling in a month ago.
Thought as much.
Family aside, I also made same decision to delay.Thought as much.
When it was released I had decided to wait a little before looking to purchase due to a new job, an additional family member etc and then in around Feb/early March there seemed to be an alert or two each week...
Mrs cats2rise and the 6 month old are now going away for 3 nights in early May and now I am chomping at the bit to get one before then... but now not as available as before.
I think Naughty Dog are just going ridiculously hard on the IP because of the upcoming HBO Show, and Sony is enabling it because of their history. Not the best look.Sounds like they only want their own studios to produce the blockbusters.
Weren’t most of the poor reviews based on he game running poorly rather than the game play?Days Gone was fantastic. Not sure why Sony is letting reviews affect business decisions like that.
I suppose if Sony are paying to keep the lights on they can utilise the studio the way they see fit. The same thing will start happening with these studios Microsoft are buying when they want to start seeing some revenue.Sony doubling down on their biggest earner makes sense, but it seems pretty bad though that Bend staff actually left their job over it. They want to do their own stuff. ND is Sony's big ticket and I get the impression that they just expected others to give up their creative freedom for it. Days Gone still sold really well and had a solid foundation to improve from. Sony need to diversify their studios, not homogenise them, if they want to rely on their exclusives being a draw card vs Microsoft and Game Pass. More titles from unique IPs the better IMO.
