      Sony never forces their devs to do anything creatively. They just encourage certain behavior and if your game fails without at least trying out their suggestions then you get shut down. (what happened with Japan Studios)

          Just a quick FYI before I leave this moronic thread
          Japan studio had over 200 devs. Since their closure team asobi only hired 25 new devs. If you assume every single one was from Japan studio (which they probably weren't) they still lost almost 90% of the workforce.

          asobi was also always a japan studio team and was spun off in 2021, their legacy was making shitty demos for peripherals since 2013 so the majority of the team has a different pedigree than what anyone actually gives a shit about.

          TLDR they are still dead, sony is still moronic and PlayStation did infact commit brand suicide in 2021.

                Long story short is when Japan Studio was folded everyone had two options to either leave or stay. Former talent like the producer of Bloodborne is with Koei Tecmo, the guy behind Gravity Rush, Siren and writer from SH1 is at Bokeh Studio making Slitterhead. The ones who helped develop Freedom Wars, Patagon are at TVT. The cutscene people behind Japan Studio's is at Monolithsoft and has worked on XC2 and onward.

            morons.

            Team Asobi is made up 90% of Japan Studios. In fact it was a part of the "200" people at Japan studios. The people who were let go are working at one of a few studios such as Bokeh that all received seed money from Sony to be independent.
            The fragmentation of Japan Studios is a good thing because they couldn't make a game to keep the lights on, but now they may have a shot at making something worthwhile.

                False their titles were AA budget and not AAA 320 million and need to sell 10 million to break even tier. 100k sells is considered successful due to budget and ROI.

                It was 60 devs out of 200 and they were still growing at the time of writing that to about 100, many hires of which were still from Japan Studios stragglers.
                And to say they had no talent is absolutely hilarious given Team Asobi is the only part of Japan Studios that has made anything that's gained a sizeable audience since The Last Guardian (which was by genDesign anyway).

                That wasn't Sony that was all the studio itself. The only studio that survived was the one that Sony actually forced into doing something which was Team Asobi. The other studios didn't get demands from SIE, just optional notes.

                the desperation to try gaslight me to buy goyslop from brainwashed race traitors working for snoy is comical

                Imagine saying snoy unironically and thinking you have a sound mind.
                It isn't gaslighting it is 100% factual and undisputable.

                That's Asobi Games alright.

                Their last 2 games (including the VR demo for Astro Bot) were masterpieces. You're delusional.

                They were a tiny 35 man sub studio who only made cheap demos and they only took on 20ish people from the main studio after its closure, they were never even approaching the majority. The most talented people left to join better, more exciting devs across the industry. Nobody wants to work on budget platformers aimed at selling peripherals.

                japan studio also functioned as their hub for their entire Japanese game development operation, all their connections to other studios and devs existed within that talent pool, they are the only reason bloodborne exists, patapon and other games were due to their connections with external talent. You can see how they lost that shit by following bokeh and their connections to massive figures in the JP dev scene.

                >You can see how they lost that shit by following bokeh and their connections to massive figures in the JP dev scene.
                OR they cut off a useless limb that couldn't keep its own lights on and rejected every suggestion made by SIE. SIE wanted them to use Decima and modernise their studio. Instead they made 4 games that all TANKED with extremely bad critical reception.
                Shuhei was the one managing many of the Japanese industry connections for Sony which is why we see him often have dinners with the likes of Hidetaka Miyazaki and Fumito Ueda.
                That connection stayed as it wasn't a part of Japan Studio's teams that got laid off.

                sony rejected every pitch Japan studio gave, when gravity rush 2 was about to launch they excluded it from their e3 press conference. It was so embarrassing to Sony that they were making a Japanese looking game they pretended it didn't even exist. I'm sure sony would have loved them to "modernise" and make a realistic 3rd person open world action game on decima engine.

                Why are you lying? Gravity Rush 2 was in their E3 broadcast pre-show and post-show. This is due to Japan Studios idiotic wish to primarily focus on Japanese audiences in their marketing strategy.
                Sony wanted them to modernise production but they didn't. Now theyre stuck in their indie studios requesting tech support from SIE to figure out how to use UE4/5. You can't make this shit up.
                Decima as an engine can perfectly support any art style you'd want. There is also no requirement for the game to be realistic or open-world.
                But it would likely be 3rd person action JUST LIKE GR2, TLG, AND SOTC.

                PlayStation has genuinely never been more successful than it is now. What kind of mental gymnastics are these? PS5 already has more profits than PS1 + PS2. Or more profits than the entire PS4 generation.

                Besides this isn't a real criticism. This is autismo levels of trying to find something to justify their irrational anger. There is nothing wrong with how it works in not just the west but in the entire world outside of japan.

                Who? moron, Ganker took to calling them snoy once basedny was being word filtered and someone shared an amusing post from a Jap on twitter where he accidentally misspelled Sony and it pissed off the Sony fanboys so it stuck.
                >t. was there when NoraNeko 2's censored CGs were being posted.
                If you're going to pretend you aren't a tourist and were here and claim I'm wrong then all you have to do is say who the other studio that was part of Ground 0 for the censorship was. They were the one's that called Sony out by name.

                Bizarre isn't it. You'd almost think Sony hate the Japanese side of the industry.
                Same goes for the new AC slop.
                >GoT was made with careful consideration and tons of historical aspects researched and learned from the people of Tsushima so much so it was considered insanely accurate
                Media response: outrage and hate due to the devs being respectful to the Japanese
                >AC Shadows is some poorly made ARRU ROOKU DA SHAME shit that has absolutely no historical accuracy of the region in the slightest. Chinese architecture, SEA looking "Japanese people," one single type of hat, the light being blocked by the paper doors, the messenger being on the same level as the shogun(that's a seppuku right there)
                Media response: Overwhelming praise
                Really makes you think.
                Even weirder if you think about sexual assault. If a Japanese studio was exposed for doing anything to women the media would never shut up about it. Meanwhile ActiBlizz were exposed for some crazy fricked up shit and all the "women respecters" were dead silent about it and didn't want to cause a fuss, hell one of the homosexuals said he kept quiet about it despite knowing it happened for OVER A FRICKING DECADE.
                But nope, the west TOTALLY doesn't hate the Japanese.

                They were a tiny 35 man sub studio who only made cheap demos and they only took on 20ish people from the main studio after its closure, they were never even approaching the majority. The most talented people left to join better, more exciting devs across the industry. Nobody wants to work on budget platformers aimed at selling peripherals.

                japan studio also functioned as their hub for their entire Japanese game development operation, all their connections to other studios and devs existed within that talent pool, they are the only reason bloodborne exists, patapon and other games were due to their connections with external talent. You can see how they lost that shit by following bokeh and their connections to massive figures in the JP dev scene.

              The talent scattered all over the Japanese game industry. When you take a dev with that much experience and shatter it the studio level expertise is gone forever. You're also never getting anything like that again since they were one of the rare devs who operated at the heart of the best games during the gaming golden age.

              they had a studio with expertise and a legacy only matched by capcom, FROM and Nintendo then threw it away, fricking crazy.

    This is not news. We've known ever since it was reported that Japan Studios shut down that they were reformed into Team Asobi. But people wanted to be mad and angry that Japan Studios closed down without understanding the situation.

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Just a quick FYI before I leave this moronic thread
      Japan studio had over 200 devs. Since their closure team asobi only hired 25 new devs. If you assume every single one was from Japan studio (which they probably weren't) they still lost almost 90% of the workforce.

      asobi was also always a japan studio team and was spun off in 2021, their legacy was making shitty demos for peripherals since 2013 so the majority of the team has a different pedigree than what anyone actually gives a shit about.

      TLDR they are still dead, sony is still moronic and PlayStation did infact commit brand suicide in 2021.

        The French goyim sucking DEI dick did get fired, he got replaced by a former Team ICO staff member.

        Team Asobi did nothing to collapse Japan Studios. Japan Studios simply couldn't make games that made enough money to keep the lights on. That is all on them.
        They still got severance and seed money to establish several indie studios. The only traitor IS YOU.

        The fricking irony of this post. Team Asobi has like 15% non-japanese people and yet you pretend that it isn't a Japanese studio for it.

        Nah you're just a schizo.
        keeping the lights on is one of the shortest and most ordinary ways of expressing a company has bills to pay to continue running.

        >proves he's a snoy and not arguing in good faith

        have a nice day Snoy. Asobi will never be Japan Studio nor reach their heights.

        That shit is good faith. Look up the frickign company on topic. Thats exactly the type of games they made. Literally school girls being overly sexualized.

          Uh... You might be moronic. There were TWO companies that exposed Sony. ONE exposed them with extreme last-minute censorship, the other outright named them. I asked for the one that NAMED them.

    My biggest issue is the same that happened with Sackboy: A Big Adventure, everything feels like I already watched/played it in another mario game, since SABA is just a poor`s man's Mario 3D World. The feeling of rehash is enormous.

    Watching the trailer I feel the same I felt years ago watching PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale
    Video first trailer. Anyway, still want to play it, but feels like a missing opportunity to do something unique with Astro. GR1 and GR2 had rough edges, but was unique as frick.

          To add to this you might be able to Wild card the bit between News and the ]
          e.g. NEWS*] to account for any exclamation marks but to be safe you can double up
          and have
          >NEWS]
          >NEWS*]
          This will only affect OPs and titles that have the square bracket so the word "news" itself won't be.
          Also you can possibly rig it up to be case insensitive(capitals or no capitals) but I don't remember the way to do that.
