They’ve had some pretty good ones over the years with the Switch generation. Historically they’ve never done discounts, but they’ve had big first party games in sales for up to half price off at times on switch.
Add onto that the whole concept of the vouchers,
And the fact Nintendo don’t try extorting you from the outset (charging about £10 less on average for the complete games than other big studios charge for the incomplete base game), and no crappy in-game micro transactions, I tend to feel much better stumping up for the games.
Ubisoft are always quick to discount their games. They get the suckers and them drop them to get the rest, much to to the chagrin of those who buy day 1. The less acclaimed a game is, the faster it happens.
25% off all editions and it hadn’t even been a month since it launched. As a fan of the franchise (up until that game) I paid £92 for the digital version of the ultimate edition. I could have gotten that same version a few weeks later for around £65 (sold by Ubisoft on the Xbox store). I was pretty annoyed with that. I’ve vowed never to buy another Ubisoft game. Unless they make another watch dogs and go back to the roots of the original, because that was good. But it won’t be a pre-order or a day one buy, nor will it be for the complete version of the game.
MGS 1 should’ve been done first. They always skip the best ones (IMO). I don’t remember much about 3, but I’ll most definitely be playing.
FFXIV is a must have.
Only read the page and not seen all the clips, so I probably would enjoy a few others. I’ve not yet played Spider Man, same reason as to why I’d never played Fallen Order - didn’t think they were my type of games, but actually. I like FO so may give SM a go.
I’ve still Miles Morales in its wrapper for ps5 from when I first got my ps5.
I think that’s more to do with how Nintendo marketed it. It was every bit a cesspool of confusion as Xbox one and the new Netflix thing
Brilliant console though, I loved it.
So wii U was a proprietary connection between the gamepad and the console. It connected directly to the console not router then console. And it needed line of sight and pretty close range to maintain the connection. But so long as you were connected it was rock solid. It never lagged, never stuttered. Nothing.
If the PlayStation thing hopes to achieve similar performance it would need to work in the same way.
But if it’s just using your existing wifi network, my question is why make you buy another piece of hardware when they could have just given you and app for your phone and tablet like Xbox have done?
I’m loving my X Box series S so far. Plays really well and game pass is just a no brainer, especially if you can get it for cheaper/free/using points. So many games that I haven’t played before for £0 per month at the moment due to Microsoft Rewards. EA Play being included is just the icing on the cake.
PS5 is more popular but if you don’t really care about the exclusives, I’d definitely recommend an XBox.
Same. Really enjoyed the Wii U and helped create some more unique games with the gamepad (before developers, including Nintendo, started to just ignore it haha).
I think PS is going to have a hard time marketing this as well. It will be difficult to get across that it ISN’T a portable Playstation, especially when Switch exists. I also can’t imagine it being cheap, which creates a challenge getting people to buy it when it is just an optional add-on.
