      Why did it flop? It looks great, the gameplay isn't terrible by any means (a lot better than TMS) and, sure, the story leaves to be desired but SMT V's wasn't any better. So why did it flop?

          But it's kind of their own fault for numerous reasons. Both within the game itself, but also outside of it such as ignoring the Switch.
          The game deserves better though.

            I like how people are pretending that Atlus is sony’s bitch when they made a game exclusive for the switch, a shit ton of games for the 3DS, porting the persona games (known for being trapped in playstation jail) into everywhere and now porting vanillaware games. But since 1 game skipped the switch i gues atlus is as much of a snoy fanboy as namco bandai and sega. the truth is that atlus is RETARDED and will always make stupid decisions

              Uh those don't count because I say so. Ignore the fact the DS and 3DS allowed Atlus to be make cheap games which was perfect for them at the time since before SEGA they weren't even AA developer and were barely a single A and thus they could have a faster output.

              Do you know what psychological identity fusion is? It's a phenomenon where somebody's psychological state, affected by anxieties or insecurities, will latch onto a group or entity or person and treat them as an extension of their self. Sort of like the non-religious equivalent to cult indoctrination.
              The inverse of this is that your sense of self is so tied to this, that you interpret attacks on them as attacks on yourself.

              The man literally sees any attack on Sony, PS5 struggles, and even incongruously Nintendo doing well as an actual offense to him personally.

                The funnies thing is that the GAAS projects will just end up out competing each other, as is the nature of GAAS.
                Even in the impossible scenario of every single one of the 12 GAAS projects Sony have got cooking, were to end up 10/10 games that broke new grounds and ended up being both critically acclaimed and universally beloved. Only like 2, or 3 at most, of the games are likely to actually be successful and sustain a sustainable playerbase that can survive. They'll just cannibalize each other. The playerbase just don't have enough time, let alone money, to play and sustain all the GAAS projects at the same time.

                A sony GAAS is also doomed to fail based on the notion that they just want to make movies. Why pay a monthly service charge when you'll just be frontended anything of interest in the first month? It's not like the game itself with be appealing, and that's a best case scenario where you can't just watch it on youtube.

                Sony is having enough trouble adopting a buy rate for their POS titles. Now they want a monthly service charge?

                Sony has done successful and decent GAAS in the past but with Sony Online Entertainment in the past with stuff like Everquest 1/2, PlanetSide 1, Star Wars Galaxies and Vanguard: Saga of Heroes. They foolishly sold that division in 2015 which is now known as Daybreak Game Company and it picked up Dungeon and Dragons Online and Lord of the Rings Online. Sony wasted all that money on Bungie when they used to have that expertise inhouse and now will have to rebuild it from scratch with no guarantee of success beyond Destiny 2.

                That's honestly why I was asking. Even if only one succeeded, they'll still have to pay for marketing and servers for the 11 other games, taking revenue away from the successful one.

                Why do you think jimbo is crying crocodile tears in front of the Media he knows sony is fucked without COD so he is scrambling to find new money streams if the worst comes to pass, they really should have invested on themselves becoming too dependent on third party is finally biting them in the ass the fact that capcom is making a RE4RE port for the PS4 should tell you how much confidence third parties have on sony now.

                >He used early development on Famicom as an example, saying that back then teams were made up of only two or three people and that videogames seemed so fresh because no genres had been explored. He also said that for games to sell 100,000 copies each was the norm and that million sellers weren't unheard of.
                >In the Super Famicom (Super NES, US) days, Iwata noted, development teams grew to 50 or more people and production time increased by as much as a year or two. Sequels became more important, but not every follow-up guaranteed strong sales.

                >The 3D boost from 1994 onward dazzled players with the newness of the third-dimension enough to make tried-and-true game ideas and concepts seem fresh again, said Iwata. He explained that the Sony PlayStation 1, Sega Saturn and Nintendo 64 came out and suddenly anything not in 3D was seen as antiquated. As a result, most games were in 3D and play controls evolved to work with these types of games, just as the imagery became more and more sophisticated to entice more players. Development time was once again increased and, oppositely, budget software was born, the Nintendo president Stated
                >Iwata seemed to indicate that he was not yet convinced that convergence of functionality would be the right route. "It is imperative that a game machine is easy to use for anyone. I don't agree that multi-function hardware is the only answer."

                >Iwata drew parallels between the current state of the gaming industry and the decline in popularity of the shooting and fighting game genres. He said that data shows that domestic software shipments are shrinking and while some people consider this to be a temporary phenomenon that will let up when new hardware releases, he is not one of them.

            Cool, but this isn't 2016 and PS5 software sales still aren't picking up. PS5 has been out for nearly two years now and PS4 versions are still outselling PS5 versions by far.
            >DQ12 has a better chance of being a ps5 exclusive than persona 6.
            Historically, DQ has released on the platform dominant in Japan.

            The writing on the wall says that, at best, DQXII will be multiplat. It's not skipping the platform that currently has 98% of its home market.
            >b-but japan is irrelevant!
            Japan bought more copies of DQXI than the rest of the world combined.

            The only way DQXII will be PS5 exclusive is if Sony pays big, big money for it and considering how much they've given the finger to Japan, it's very unlikely they're willing to make that kind of investment.

        DQ12 is going to be on switch and MHW2 will be focused on PC according to Cap, FF has been on a downward spike for years in Japan, Persona 6 might do well but its not enough to save the console

        My hate is equal at least. I hate men AND women alike, and I wish my games were propagated by nothing but robots. At least a well made robot won't bore me to death with exposition and backstory, like this was a visual novel.

        I just find it funny that people will take issue with characters like abby from TLOU, and then praise the same character from a japanese game like Mythra or some other tsundere. If you're like me, and you discard all of them as bad, then there's no bias and thus reason triumphs over emotion. And my reasoning is that good gameplay should come before all else. Graphics, story, music, all of it means nothing.

        [...]

        See, already you've sabotaged your argument.

        This is basically you saying that you would love these games if the unbearable western characters were replaced with anime waifus. Also interesting of note is that you don't specify any definition of what you mean by "propaganda". That definition could apply to any JRPG with a heavy story focus.

          What is your definition of being "badly written"? I hope that doesn't mean "I disagree with the politics".

                than post what was woke about it

                I mean, it doesn’t? I remember Chloe in 2 having a big ass and Nathan making a commentary about elena ass. maybe i am wrong.

                Yeah the Uncharted had nothing woke about them, they still are slogs to play and are boring however

                The Uncharted series was a poster boy of being woke.It promoted the idaeology that a game doesn't have to be a game, and it can just be a series of pretty set pieces where the main character makes snarky marvel capeshit quips.Just because it didn't tackle gender politics, doesn't mean it wasn't at the forefront of turning games into woke movieshit. FFS the game even has segments where the character just walks and talks because it would be too videogamey to let him do anything else.

                To put it another way, when people say that Nu-God of War is woke trash, they're wrong. ALL of God of War is woke trash. This includes the Ps2 games. Back when the Ps2 was still new, people laughed at these games for being blatant walk-and-talk affairs, broken up occasionally with boring cinematic quick time events. The idea was to turn games into movies, where spectacle meant more than input. The Overton window has been pushed so far that now people hold reverence for these old crappy games, as if they weren't already a watering down of the action genre. These "games" have always been woke, but you've been successfully tricked into thinking that a game is only woke if it talks about gender and racial politics, instead of trying to subvert the medium and turn it into boring movieshit.

                Let me put it this way: do you think Celeste and Gone Home are "woke"? I think they are, and it has nothing to do with the stories. It has to do with both of them removing the concept of a game over or failure state. I don't care about Celeste or the Gone Home protag being gay, I care that the games are blatantly unfinished tech demos that they're selling for over 20 bucks each.

                Having a strong womyn character talking about politics in a game is no different than adding a game journalist mode that prevents you from dying. They both put across the same message.

                Woke and movie are not the same shit you retard, do you think all regular movies are woke? Go ahead and show me how Fight Club or American Psycho are woke, they don’t have “toxic gameplay” after all

                This has nothing to do with actual movies, because those aren't masquerading themselves as games. The equivalent in film would be a movie that's just 2 characters sitting at a table, with no changing camera shots or any kind of choreography used, and they just talk for an hour. The point of the medium is being pushed aside by pretentious subversives. That's the entire idea behind the woke movement: to be subversive.

                The game would have to be a stellar title, almost a masterpiece. It would have to demonstrate that it only cares about providing a solid gameplay experience. Does the game halt me every 5 seconds to shout out pride to BLM? It doesn't? Then it's not my problem.

                Am I playing as a black character? Are they just a video game character, or do they always talk and talk like I should care about the game's story? These things are very important in determining a game's woke status.Hell, what if I was to tell you that I consider JRPGs to be more woke than alot of western games? liek when certain JRPGs expect me to forgive mass murderers because "their feelings were hurt" or "they're sorry, they didn't mean to do it". Basically conditioning me to expect abuse and then forgive my abuser, far worse than most western movie games that are woke.

                Sure, lets say that theres a “vote democrat” or “donate to BLM” on every texture in the game as well, would you consider this game woke or not? If you don’t you are just changing definitions of words

                There's no reason for that texture to exist, unless they can argue that it somehow improves the game. In that case, it's dangerously approaching woke territory, but because they're wasting time and money on graphics that aren't improving the game itself. Everything in the game has to exist to serve the gameplay, the game mechanics are the ringleader and everyone exists solely to support it, nothing more.

                >How is it not woke to promote the idea that gameplay is toxic, and that it should be replaced by handholding and pretty set pieces?
                because that's not what woke means

                Woke means that you're trying to subvert the medium into palatable pigslop that meets your political agenda, and as it turns out the agenda in 2007 was to shame tryhards and people who wanted challenge in a game. Just because the agenda received an addendum to also include racial and gender politics, doesn't mean it wasn't woke back in 2007. Heck, with the influx of bad movie tie in games, I'd say it goes back even farther. You'd have the abysmal stinkers like Antz and a bug's life for playstation, and only once in a while would you get something decent like Battle for Bikini Bottom, or Peter Jackson's King Kong (actually having some decent gameplay from that is a genuine shocker, as I expected it to be low quality)

                so you're telling me that if it didn't have cutscenes the propaganda would just disappear? fuck you're actually screwed on the head

                Is the propaganda directly impeding the game? If it isn't, then really it's not my problem. There's a difference between letting the player unlock an alternate color scheme that just so happens to have the rainbow flag on it, and throwing me into a cutscene that lectures me on LGBT rights.

                And I'm asking you: why should I care if a game has something that you consider to be "propaganda" unless it's actively impeding the game itself? Should I hate mario because it endorses the idea of a monarchy? Should I hate Metroid because it pushes the propaganda of a woman being a strong warrior? Obviously not because you'll praise Mario Odyssey and Metroid Dread, so I suspect that you're being hypocritical right now.

                it doesn't

                If what I said was wrong, then why is sony constantly pushing for games with no difficulty whatsoever?

                It's propaganda because it forces it on you via a stupid cutscene, and they likely spent money with the dumb banner. That's time and money that could've gone to something more important, like maybe improving the base game. You're getting angry at the right games, but for all the wrong reasons.

                How are they unrelated?

                Tell me in your own words what makes them "woke".

                Simply put, the gameplay was put on the back burner. That's the end goal of woke-ism in vidya. The gender and racial things are but a tiny bump in the road compared to their true heinous plans: to turn vidya into 60 dollar netflix rentals, and it's disturbing that everyone is okay with this. They'll gladly enjoy shallow movie games as long as there's an anime waifu in them. This board would've worshipped TLOU as a masterpiece if you replaced all the characters with those from Hyperdimension Neptunia, or Senran Kagura. Would anyone care about the gameplay still being bad? I doubt it.

        My hate is equal at least. I hate men AND women alike, and I wish my games were propagated by nothing but robots. At least a well made robot won't bore me to death with exposition and backstory, like this was a visual novel.

        I just find it funny that people will take issue with characters like abby from TLOU, and then praise the same character from a japanese game like Mythra or some other tsundere. If you're like me, and you discard all of them as bad, then there's no bias and thus reason triumphs over emotion. And my reasoning is that good gameplay should come before all else. Graphics, story, music, all of it means nothing.

        [...]
        [...]
        [...]
        See, already you've sabotaged your argument.

        >we complain about the games having bad gameplay, totally
        >but even if they had good gameplay, we'd hate them if they had something we considered to be propaganda, or the characters were "unbearable bitches or turbodykes".

        This is basically you saying that you would love these games if the unbearable western characters were replaced with anime waifus. Also interesting of note is that you don't specify any definition of what you mean by "propaganda". That definition could apply to any JRPG with a heavy story focus.

        >we complain about the games having bad gameplay, totally
        yes. look both my webms on the archive and you'll see it
        >This is basically you saying that you would love these games if the unbearable western characters were replaced with anime waifus
        nope, this is just your leap in logic since nobody ever mentioned anything you're assuming on your post. I specifically said if there was no propaganda, meaning I'll take western characters if they weren't badly written

        P6 will make money but are you really banking on an FE-tier franchise to save Sony?
        FF16 is a step down in quality from FF15, I'm sure SE is thinking about that Switch money which is why they're futureproofing for a Switch port. There's no way the constant SE representation in the recently concluded Direct was for nothing.

        I'm not sure Splat 4 will match 3 at launch, not because of popularity, but because I expect Nintendo will want to have it very early on into the lifecycle of the Switch 2, and by that point the userbase will probably not be high enough to launch as high as 3 did.
        I can see 4 outselling 3 in the long run though.

              If they stop selling chances are good they'll stop being made. And if something else start selling it'll likely get repeated games instead.
              And even among these games. If Mario has a breakthrough mega success(es), you'll see more Platformers made. Be it from Nintendo or other developers. And if Fire Emblem has a huge mega success you'll see more RPGs and Strategy RPGs. A development that we can actually see has happened in the last few years, even if it can in no way be attributed to Fire Emblem alone.

              This idea that there is nothing to gain from reading sales data is just pure cope by console warring tards that have panic attacks when they see sales data.

            Assuming you could do that for the next several years, and somehow nullify the years of people actually discussing the game, you're also missing one crucial ingredient: these things are bad because they also prevent legitimate criticism. If people were to defend Terraria's worst features by spamming zoologist porn, maybe you'd have a point. Instead, Terraria's fandom is extremely critical of the game itself, and nobody will ever dicksuck it as perfect. Did you even see the shitstorm over torch luck? Meanwhile, I can't even complain about framerate issues in Xenoblade without people calling me an entitled gay, stating that the game gets a pass because of titties.

          The game attracted those coomers, and it panders to them. Their behavior is representative of the game's quality. You don't need to take my word for it though. Look at Deltarune threads, or Persona threads, or Senran Kagura threads. The worse the game, the more.... disastrous the fandom ends up.

                Why shouldn't it have merit? This isn't like complaining about BOTW because link crossdresses in a scene, and saying that it ruins the game. This is me complaining about something far more relevant, like framerate issues and being displeased with the hard mode being nothing but HP regen (a very lazy way of tackling difficulty modes). Who are you to say that they're not allowed to critique these things? Worse yet, who are you to drown out their criticisms with porn and shitposting?

                Just curious, do you happen to get angry when a western game has a black character in it, or a strong female who isn't sexualized? It would really be ironic if you were to cite that some criticisms don't have merit, while discarding entire games as bad because of gender and racial politics. That's why I see most people here hating Uncharted and TLOU and God of War. Not defending these games by the way, they're total crap, but I just hope you're not being hypocrites righ tnow.

                My hate is equal at least. I hate men AND women alike, and I wish my games were propagated by nothing but robots. At least a well made robot won't bore me to death with exposition and backstory, like this was a visual novel.

                I just find it funny that people will take issue with characters like abby from TLOU, and then praise the same character from a japanese game like Mythra or some other tsundere. If you're like me, and you discard all of them as bad, then there's no bias and thus reason triumphs over emotion. And my reasoning is that good gameplay should come before all else. Graphics, story, music, all of it means nothing.

                People hate the games you listed because they barely have any enjoyable gameplay ACfag, thats literally why they call them movies

                West can't write strong female characters without turning them into unbearable bitches or turbodykes or a combination of both.

                >has a black character in it, or a strong female who isn't sexualized?
                no as long as there is no propaganda in the game
                >That's why I see most people here hating Uncharted and TLOU and God of War
                people ALWAYS complain about gameplay on those

                See, already you've sabotaged your argument.

                >we complain about the games having bad gameplay, totally
                >but even if they had good gameplay, we'd hate them if they had something we considered to be propaganda, or the characters were "unbearable bitches or turbodykes".

                This is basically you saying that you would love these games if the unbearable western characters were replaced with anime waifus. Also interesting of note is that you don't specify any definition of what you mean by "propaganda". That definition could apply to any JRPG with a heavy story focus.

      Because any attempt at criticism of the game results in porn spam and console war rhetoric, or bringing up the sales (as if that nullifies the issues of the game itself)

              Inbetween the threads spamming the sales numbers and calling people snoys, it kinda implies that nobody is allowed to critique problems with the game. You want to argue that these games are masterpieces, yet you can't actually discuss why. It's always the same thing. You bring up Splatoon selling record sales. You bring up how great the metacritic score is. But if someone actually tries discussing the game, they get attacked over it. And it's not even singular cases. The entire fandom dogpiles them. I wish I could just ignore it as a rogue case that doesn't happen often, but that's a luxury I don't get.

              If a piece of vidya reaches a miniscule amount of attention/popularity on the internet, porn will be made of it. Coomers will literally jack of to anything, so no a videogame could have zero pornographic elements to it but coomers will flock to it regardless.

              Porn isn't the issue. I never said porn was bad. Hell, I hesitate to call fanservice bad, but people use it to hide problems with their games. Saying that Xenoblade and splatoon are masterpieces because they have waifus, is no different from saying that TLOU and Uncharted are masterpieces because they have realistic graphics and cinematic storytelling. At the end of the day you're trying to deflect criticism of the actually important part of the game, because you have gimmicks and glitter and smoke and mirrors everywhere.

    to compare to splatoon 1 and 2

    >Famitsu recently reported that Splatoon 2 sold 670,955 copies within the first three days of its launch, and that’s only counting the physical copies sold, including download cards and those sold in a bundle deal. That makes it the biggest debut for any Switch title yet—yes, even including Breath of the Wild—and the highest selling Switch title yet.

    >For reference, the original Splatoon sold 156,610 in its first four days, and topped out at just over 1.5 million in total, meaning that Splatoon 2 has nearly hit half of its predecessor’s total sales in Japan in just three days.

      The Uncharted series was a poster boy of being woke.It promoted the idaeology that a game doesn't have to be a game, and it can just be a series of pretty set pieces where the main character makes snarky marvel capeshit quips.Just because it didn't tackle gender politics, doesn't mean it wasn't at the forefront of turning games into woke movieshit. FFS the game even has segments where the character just walks and talks because it would be too videogamey to let him do anything else.

      To put it another way, when people say that Nu-God of War is woke trash, they're wrong. ALL of God of War is woke trash. This includes the Ps2 games. Back when the Ps2 was still new, people laughed at these games for being blatant walk-and-talk affairs, broken up occasionally with boring cinematic quick time events. The idea was to turn games into movies, where spectacle meant more than input. The Overton window has been pushed so far that now people hold reverence for these old crappy games, as if they weren't already a watering down of the action genre. These "games" have always been woke, but you've been successfully tricked into thinking that a game is only woke if it talks about gender and racial politics, instead of trying to subvert the medium and turn it into boring movieshit.

      >poster boy of being woke
      >promoted the idaeology that a game doesn't have to be a game
      taht's not what woke means
      >Just because it didn't tackle gender politics, doesn't mean it wasn't at the forefront of turning games into woke movieshit
      so it wasn't woke at all? got it

                Does Splatoon have a campaign though? Playing Splatoon seems kinda cancer because of the cramped arena, and it's not enough of a party game so competitiveness creeps in. It's like the halo hammer mode of just tapping it one millisecond earlier than your opponent. Whereas high level halo, was about flying on props across the map, map management, sniper ricochet shots. Whereas Splatoon seems shallow competitively but at the same time is not even enough of party game so you can't relax.

Someone needs to make an MP game about launching props at your opponent, since that's what endgame FPS is anyways, people trying to snipe each other with prop physics.

                Haven't played Halo so I have no idea what you're talking about, Splatoon has no aim assist so if you see someone who can hit everything they're either cheating or have godlike aiming. Painting the floor is how you manage maps here, since you're basically immobile in enemy ink. There's a lot of things to think about from positioning to map and objective control.

          Mighty No 9 looked like dogshit from the get go. Eiyuden at least looks competent and better than these Suikoden remasters.

      It's not coming out until 2026 and even if it did come to Switch it'll be unoptimized shit because Japanese devs can't code.

      Xenoblade 3 is more expensive than LAL in Japan. It's no problem.

      PS went from outselling Xbox 100:1 to 6:1. The sales reflects this even right now.

          Stock issues lol. There is nothing wrong with this. Xbox is selling better than ever in Japan.

            Come on, now. The 360 sold way better and had a niche sing holding on for a long time. Xbone/Series X software doesn't chart even when they actually do physical releases in Japan.

            It's hilarious when Xbox outsells PS5 in a week, but the market is clearly moving towards PC for "high end" gaming, rather than Xbox.

              The most realistic goal for Xbox was not being completely marginalized which they seem to achieve. The PS5 bombing is a huge bonus which they profit from as well. As for PC we will see, but that would be a win for MS as well.

                Call me when their software starts charting again. Until then, no, they're completely marginalized. The only reason the platform even gets releases from Japanese publishers are because the big ones cast a wide net for worldwide releases.
                >As for PC we will see, but that would be a win for MS as well.
                This is kinda true I suppose, though if Japan's PC scene ends up being like the west then they won't take much that doesn't give gaben his cut and all MS really benefits from is people buying Windows. Which I think Japan is already doing.
