      That's something that only ever existed at a few principled outlets coveting industry and politics.
      Video Games are a media market, like movies, you can't have journalism in either because all the information anyone would need to be told is stuff the publishers are holding. It's just an advertising parasite.

      It looks okay, but the main problem with DEI/ ESG and its pursuit of the most unevocative character designs ever is, people do not engage with luxury products like games because they're good; they engage with them because they are appealing.
      Quality is only one aspect of appeal.
      It's like dating, a little bit anyways. The shallow stuff is what draws people in but they stick around for that, and some deeper stuff as well.
      I also think it's hilarious when this, and other political concerns overlap. Like, they're probably hoping that minority women and non-binary people will write thinkpieces about how much they appreciate the characters or whatever on Twitter but they're going to ignore them for more attractive legacy options because the designs are unappealing at best.
      In short, none of that other shit matters if they can't get the appeal aspect down first.

    The thing a lot of you don't seem to understand about a game like this is, Sony HAS to make this game.
    Sony is a publicly traded company and Sony has a fiduciary duty (an actual legal obligation in many territories) to provide the highest possible return on investment for their investors.

    It is possible that Sony management never wanted to make this game, and completely expects it to fail. But they have an obligation to try, because games like this have the potential, albeit slim, to be the highest return on investment for shareholders. This game is the answer to the question:
    >Games like Fortnite, Roblox, and League of Legends have the ability to generate gargantuan amounts of revenue with relatively little ongoing development costs, for years! What are YOU doing to incorporate some of those kinds of games into your business plan?
    and they can point to this game and say, "Here's what we're trying!" - thus fulfilling their fiduciary obligations.
    When Concord fails there will be another game like it, and another - all creatively bankrupt, focus group tested, boardroom prescribed slop for a shrinking demographic of braindead consumers - until the market decides that these skinnerbox style games no longer carry a realistic potential for huge returns.

        "Sex sells" is only said by people that think they know how to advertise.
        You have to be subtle. Doing something like Stellar Blade automatically puts a hard market ceiling, that's why it'll probably forever have the ignoble distinction of "lowest selling #1 debut of a video game" simply by virtue of having no meaningful competition in April until we have another game drought in 2-3 years. Nier at least gave out plausible deniability that there was more going on than just hot anime girl with a big ass, even if that was doing most of the passive advertising.

        Call of Duty and Fortnite put most of their focus in being premier multiplayer experiences. That they can trot out a girl in a skin tight outfit with a thin waist and a big ass with jiggle phyiscs under the radar for the coomers to spend cash on? Easy enough.
        Even Overwatch for all its infamy knew to stay mostly above the fray with this stuff, keeping swimsuit outfits tasteful like a bikini with a sarong for Widowmaker or a lifeguard outfit emphasizing her muscle tone for Pharah.

        Even fricking Nintendo artists know this, they'll play coy about it, joking that people really like strong female designs when pressed about something like Twintelle. The closest I ever saw was a Pokemon artist admitting they know young boys/teens like looking at the pretty girls.

          This is actually a good point, as there's a limit as to how far you can go before you lose the support of the normal person.
          Some titles will remain niche because we can't imagine a 12-year old buying it- or more accurately, imagine it being purchased for them.
          Although being niche isn't a bad thing, because some ideas can *only* make money within a niche. It's complicated.

          You don't understand how game production works. For every completed design that makes it into the final product, you have dozens more that were rejected by various controlling bodies. When it comes to female designs, you can bet at least half of the rejected drawings were considered too sexualized for mainstream release. Who decides that? Lately it's the DEI consultant agencies, but Squarenix for example has their own in-house "ethics committee" that oversees this type of content. Do you really believe the character designer for reboot Tifa chose to cover up more of her body?

      The problem with this point is that while you are correct that Sony "HAS" to make games in order to not get their C-suite fricking wrecked by the board, the idea that they have to make "THIS" is a bit odd.
      Not to mention if Mr.Noseberg Goldsmith shows up in your Quarterly investment calls and complains about your company not doing X with Y technology for assuredly billions of dollars, you can still tell him no if it sounds like a bad idea. Your company just has to still be making increasing amounts of money, which I'm pretty sure Sony is. Nintendo tells people to frick off all the time. Of course, the Japanese have a way of stretching "no" into 5 sentences but it's still pretty detectable as "no".
      I think Concord is more the result of standard business mistakes and less the result of a complicated tangle of legal and economic responsibilities creating a particular product from the ether.

      mf WHAT? if you want to play a hero shooter you have to play a game that was made 8 or 15 years ago. The newest one is 5 years old but you have to be extremely loose with the phrase "hero shooter" to include it.

    I get why they made the characters ugly. I do. They want to be "diverse and inclusive" to different body types and minimize the male sexual gaze. Stupid as frick, but I get it.

    Counterpoint, who is going to want to play a game with ugly characters? Who is going to spend money on skins for ugly characters? Is the plan to sell the attractive? That's morally corrupt on two levels.

    Whether they acknowledge it or not, the insane amount of porn Overwatch has probably played a hand, however big or small, in it's popularity. If people aren't bothering to make fanart of your characters, let alone porn, then it just means that your designs are shit and you're losing potential customers.

    "fatigue" isn't the right word
    fatigue makes more sense for singleplayer focused games where you can complete a game and move on to the next
    so many games in the same genre have deminishing returns, but it lasts much longer
    hero shooters, like all live service games, are meant to be played forever so you're only looking at two or three real successes
    the genre is already saturated, and people have their sunk cost in an existing game
    in all probability, this will be all of a momentary distraction before going back to your existing game of choice

      What this guy doesn't realize is that TF2 is a very funny game that launched at an ideal time for that particular game. Concord is not funny (just look at its art style), and is also launching too late. Hell, Overwatch didn't even go too far with it.
