  1. Not Pokemon numbers but impressive nonetheless.
  2. It's promising. But I'd love to see more of certain games, like Alan Wake 2 and Jedi Survivor. Excited for PSVR2 and hoping both The Last of Us Online and Playdead's new game come out next year. And I hope Starfield delivers. I don't gel that well with Bethesda's games but a massive sci-fi RPG is right up my alley. On a much smaller scale Cocoon, Replaced, The Plucky Squire, Planet of Lana and Pepper Grinder look super cool.
  3. Not for me. Much prefer Horizon's world, lore and combat. I bounced off Days Gone's characters, world and gameplay pretty quickly.
  4. Pretty impressive how Sony managed to release well-received sequels to GoW, Horizon, Ratchet and GT in the first two years of the PS5, during a pandemic, as well as a new Spider-Man (sort of), remakes of Demon's Souls and The Last of Us, and GotG Returnal.
  5. They didn't ship everything they produced because of the GoW/holiday push. You'll see a huge uptick in sales for Q3.
  6. Not really because they still sell every PS5 they make. Now that they're ramping up production for the holidays you'll see a massive Q3 jump. In fact, if Sony hits its targets (and they actually expect to exceed them) PS5 will outpace PS4 next year. I believe Christopher Dring - who is the UK sales guy from GI.biz - said that most people will buy the PS5 version of cross-gen games and that PS4 owners are willing to wait until they get their hands on a PS5 instead of buying the game on PS4. I believe the Forbidden West split was 70-30 in favour of the PS5 and that was when PS5 was harder to get.
  7. Sales are doing well though. PS5 is the best-selling console in the US and Europe and the only reason it isn't outpacing the PS4 is due to supply constraints. In terms of software they didn't have any major releases, but Q3 will be very different with Ragnarok and Modern Warfare 2. Wouldn't be surprised to see them break the Q3 revenue record as well.
  8. Sony released their Q2 sales figures and Era did a recap. They shipped 3.3 million PS5's that quarter, had the biggest Q2 in revenue of any platform holder ever and announced that God of War 2018 is now over 23 million copies sold.

    Not really because this is very much Chris Olsen's game and he had nothing to do with Playdead. It does look really promising though.
  10. I don't mind them at all, they trend to be amazing games made even better (and more available). Demon's Souls, RE2 Remake and The Last of Us Part 1 are all sublime games and better than the original. Mario 3D World not only reaches a new audience, but it also came with the superb Bowser's Fury. Both Dead Space and RE4 look excellent, with the former especially having some very interesting improvements like a completely explorable Ishimura and a scare director. I don't see the problem, as we're not exactly starved of good new games (just look at EDGE this month) and many of these games are made by studios who specialize in them (like Bluepoint or Nixxes).
  11. Scariness has always been a very subjective thing. Some hands-on previews were released last week. https://www.thegamer.com/the-callisto-protocol-hands-on-preview/

    Very cool. Between this and Ragnarok I won't be bored when I return from my vacation.
  13. Not anything that wasn't in the trailers I believe. They want to keep a lot of it under wraps.
  14. Hands-on impressions are out. No idea how spoilery they are, but this seems to be the gist of it.
  15. This is like watching a seventies political thriller in the SW universe and it's brilliant. Scenes like the one between Mon Mothma and the banker, all the political machinations at the ISB and the bureaucracy at Coruscant that Syril Carn is tangled up in are captivating. Stellan commands every scene he's in. And the cinematography and music are superb as well. What a show.
  16. These are the rumoured projects: Silent Hill 5 - Masahiro Ito and Japanese developer Silent Hill 2 remake - Bloober Team Silent Hill episodic spin-off - Annapurna Interactive As well as a new SH movie.
  17. The HDR is probably the best of any game I've played, yeah. And to think it wan't all that great earlier this year. That recent update made such a difference.
  18. I've seen my fair share of voice acting sessions for games and it's easily weeks, if not months for a game like this.
