      My thoughts exactly. I sold my PS5 two years ago since I had nothing interesting to play on it (own a PC and Switch). But damn, this new Astroboy game looks crazy good. Frick all the soulslike slop from the event though.

    Astro is the last remnant of Playstation's japanese roots. The game looks better than anything SIE has put out in the past few years.

        Unless something has changed, nobody credited on Astro's Playroom worked on either of those. Most of Asobi's staff are newcomers, and those that were there prior to Japan Studio's closure have more overlap with the likes of Knack and Déraciné. You can check this on MobyGames.

            Playroom is literally based around the controller and things it can do - which is most likely why it hasn't seen a PC port - and this looks to follow suit.

                For the DualSense? Perhaps, but you still have to make the game work with the base system (which in this case is KB/M and nowadays basic XInput), they're not gonna make a game controller exclusive.

        His platformer game bombed.

        Because it's a good mascot platformer that deserves its spot in the limelight? Not to mention Sony is in desperate need of something other than cinematic games and R&C since they have some aversion to making any sort of non-party games with Toro or Ape Escape games.

        I liked the old R&C when they were more gamey and comedic in the PS2 era. Rift Apart felt shallow even by the standards of a kids game; it lacks basic features from the original trilogy. I like platformers and the aesthetic for this platformer caught my eye.

                This board is very hostile to PS and I'm not sure why honestly, I think probably because Nintendo has their own niche and Xbox is too small in the 3rd world (EU, etc.). So for most thirdies it's a 'PC vs PS' war in their mind, so they obsess over it. They get excited for each victory or loss like it's a personal one, rather than realizing all these things bring happiness to different kinds of people.

    It's absolutely insane that 4 years into the console's life cycle the best games for it are gonna be a weird roguelike by some finnish people and a 3d platformer by the team that made that psvr demo of all things but frick it, the game looks phenomenal

    The game looks pretty good and the best out of all the shit that was shown but does anything think it's funny that Sony is basically rubbing in our faces all the IPs they just drove into the ground and left for dead?

    I don't understand why they killed off Sack Boy only to remake him but with way less charm. Is it because they didn't want Sackboy because it was created by the japanese?

    >Took years, but this is first game that has made me a bit sad that I don't have a PS5
    Still not touching the console with a 10-foot pole, but I do hope it gets a PC release some day.

      Much like Astro's Playroom, it'll heavily use the Dualsense, so it probably won't get a PC release.

    Truly makes you wonder
    (Yes, being free on all PS5 also helped)

      The VR game that came before it is even better. It would have been GOTY if VR headsets were more popular.

    Honestly this might be the reason I buy a PS5. I like Mario but this one looked way better.

    I like him. I wish they used Sackboy instead but his game looks great and I will be buying it.

    after trying out Astro's playroom at a friend's house, it's a pretty alright platformer game. It's charming and it looks really nice.
