System Wars / Twisted Metal live service game cancelled
February 27, 2024, 08:52:26 PM
Guess the tv show flopped

Seems Sony only did this for the initial month. :D 

So many pissed off consumers, lol. 

This all points to why they're releasing PC games. If that doesn't help, they're going 3rd party.

They always follow Xbox's lead. I'll never understand it.

Nintendo will be the only one left soon.  :dreamy:

...per a recent IGN poll :vince:

They're fucking desperate :tom: 
System Wars / Diablo 4 coming to Gamepass

I bought it but thank god. Will have some people to play with because I literally know zero people who bought it. 
System Wars / It’s PC+Switch Ultra next gen

Now that Xbox and PS games will be on PC, there's no reason to own either. This is good news, as less is more. Switch+PC is really all that is needed. 

And no, I'm not trying to play emulated trash. I know PC can play shit versions of Nintendo games, but it's no where near the same experience. 

Getting a good PC isn't much more expensive than a PS and Xbox, which I always got in the past, and now I'll get the best versions. 

    :smug: Outsourced. Outsold. Nintendo owns Sony. 
    Mario Wonder had 12 million in sales by 12/31/23. 
    Spiderman 2 just crossed 10 million. It was never close.

Ready to cry? @FIREPOWER  @Goukosan  the gap will only get bigger.

:D Was thinking of picking this up if a few friends do but will probably wait after reading about this mess.  
System Wars / What MS should do
February 06, 2024, 11:30:45 PM
The smart move here would be not to release first party games on PS5, but rather tie it 100% to the subscription. Meaning to play- you have to subscribe to Gamepass. 

of course for this to happen, Sony and Nintendo would have to allow GP. Looks like we'll see if they made a deal  :smoke:

Then I really could get rid of Xbox. :vince: 
Sony copied Xbox Live with PSN
Copied Gamepass with PS+
Now copying PC, cloud, and mobile approach

Jesus it's like Samsung and Apple all over again, except it's obvious why Samsung copied Apple. Why Sony constantly tries to mimic MS is beyond me :D
