Doesn't look like there's a discussion thread for PS4, unless I'm blind. Let's discuss PS4, then, in this thread.

Recent news: according to Kotaku, Gamestop is no longer taking preorders for the system. Hope you got your preorder in!

I'm gonna predict Anthem will be around for about a year before EA kills Bioware. If it doesn't explode with profits for EA after the annual grace period has passed by their end of the first fiscal quarter in 2020, then it's Order 66 for Bioware.

bioware in its current state is a walking corpse anyway, which pains me to say, they were my fav dev for many many years, day one on everything they did, i got the (or one of the) first retail copy of ME3 in the state of texas quite possibly, usually played the games several times to make all the choices and such. only square at their height and now cdpr have matched what bioware did for me personally.

we're probably never getting another real mass effect or dragon age game anyway, never getting another kotor or jade empire, and that other original IP died many years ago, so even if Darth EAsis calls for Order 66 we aren't actually losing the real bioware.. we already have ...

Ya they've had a small team working DA4 and they had that mini reveal and said don't get too excited its at least 3 years out, but I cant even imagine in what form they are actually going to make it in. im sure there will be rampant monetization and they will shoehorn multiplayer in again along with some kind of service crap.

And shall only get saltier when EA unveils Jade Empire 2 at E3 only to later find out it's a live service online MMO style RPG that has an option to be free to play and will also feature an online battle royale mode with up to 64 enlightened warriors of the way of the thousand fists in each session!

even the idea of that is painful.


on a positive note I am really still enjoying assassins creed syndicate a whole lot. this is what they were trying to do with the evolution of the series. I dislike the lack of the modern day stuff and its less about the assassins/Templar conflict than id like but overall the game loop has been fun. im in sequence 5 and there 8 on the board so I guess im past half way and im not tired of any of it. im disappointed this is the only game the series got in this fashion that was good.

I have been having a lot of fun with anthem. Heck with all the hate train I almost canceled my preorder, but then I realized that im having a crap ton of fun with this game. Games are supposed to be fun. I guess hate is the way to go now tho

a certain crowd will likely enjoy it, if you like warframe or destiny its probably a game for you, but its not what bioware fans for the most part want from a bioware game. all the reviews are pretty bad and say there doesn't seem to be a hook to keep you coming back week after week for the content neglecting other games, and time will tell if they have the user base for the eventual paid content that will have to come to sustain a GaaS model title. there will be free content for awhile but when "season 2" or whatever they call it comes, will the players be there, I guess we'll see.

there will be resentment regardless because its EA, GaaS and in bioware's fans eyes they essentially killed bioware. EA is the ringleader of a real problem and negative trend that won't be going away probably ever, so they get a lot of hate for that too. many of us are not Anthem's target demo, but we were Biowares target demo, and they screwed that up.

The same goes for free to play games like Apex. I'll shat all over that just cause EA is behind that, but I give the utmost respect to Respawn for putting up with their nonsense and making a good game that is appealing to a target audience. I just can't seem to do that with Bioware. Likely cause all of their original key members who were responsible for my beloved KOTOR, Jade Empire and ME games have long since flown the coop and that company has become a shell of it's former self.

did we mention this? Kodera is moving from president of playstation to vice pres, to work on growing psn and network stuff, and jim ryan, who was the head of playstation Europe apparently and was vice pres of playstation is swapping with kodera and will be pres. apparently the head sony guys wanted kodera on this psn thing and he wont have time trying to pres the rest of playstation too. ryan isn't a good fit depending on where you fall with what you hope they will do in the future, hes the guy from the gran turismo event who looked at the ps1 and 2 stuff and said this is ancient who would want this.

Crap. Ah well, there goes my hopes and dreams of Playstation Legacy BC. The PS5 better at least have PS4 BC. I'm running out of space as it is -_-

ive been thinking it would at leas have ps4, but the move of Kodera over to the vice pres to spend all his time on network and stuff is to make playstation into a platform, so its still possible since it talked about them doing that, but it could also mean ps4 and forward. I guess we'll see.. id love to be able to just have all my psn library on one machine. it goes back to the digital future thing they want, and they know if people cant keep the games the customer base will reject the idea

There is absolutely no reason the PS5 shouldn't be BC with PS4 games. It would be absurd if it wasn't. The PS3 had insane architecture whereas they can pretty much just upgrade the specs when they release the PS5.

Sony should open a future one of their shows when they reveal PS5 with 1 line on the bullet point on the smart screen presentation to the audience: "The Sony Playstation 5 will feature Playstation 4 Backwards Compatibility" that's all you need to get people's ears perked up and a strong way to open a show to get people's attention, well, IMO anyway. I know some people aren't that big a fan of BC as much as I am.

I like it when it's well done. I basically never have a PS1 or a Wii hooked up because the PS2 and Wii U do a great job.

I wish 360 BC on XBone was universal. I would have already bought an XBone if that were the case. But none of the 360 games I still play regularly are on the list.

Ah Madden, the yearly turd that they barely improve and was really the catalyst that made microtransactions seem like a profitable revenue stream for developers. Fudge Madden.

I thought I heard something about the exclusive deal between EA and the NFL expiring soon. So if that's true it could theoretically come back.
