I think Yoshida said something about they're trying to make it to TGS but that it might not be there. He wants the game to be in an actual polished state before they show more.I know Eve is just a hack n slash but the game sure does look graphically impressive. Forspoken looks interesting but man does it need character polishing. I really like the open world they created however. Sad FF XVI didn’t appear, but knowing SQEX they will showcase that by their own merits.
Forspoken day 1.
GoW will buy on sale or something, because the 10$ upgrade is bs and i ain't supporting this.
otherwise pretty meh. spider-man is too far away to get hyped about.
On PC you don't need to pay to unlock extra graphical settings.I can see the outrage for the games that were advertised as being free upgrades. However, AAA PS4 games cost $60 and AAA PS5 games cost $70. So you’re paying the difference for the premium product, which seems fair to me when more work is put into the PS5 version. (At least as fair as can realistically be expected coming from a corporation like Sony.)
It’s at least better than having to shell out $130 bucks for both versions as would be the case in previous console generations. Or the cross-gen games not releasing on PS4 at all.
Obviously, if you don’t feel a product isn’t worth the price, don’t buy it until it is. I just don’t see the upgrade fee as unexpected or a big deal. They’re already selling the PS5 at a loss, so they have to make their money back through the game sales. I’m honestly more surprised they’re allowing the upgrades for just $10 instead of charging full price.
I actually read the latest interviews and it’s acceptable that a polished game is better than a buggy one. Unfortunately, XVI doesn’t look like it’s ready for TGS. https://www.gematsu.com/2021/09/square-enix-announces-tgs-2021-online-lineup-scheduleI think Yoshida said something about they're trying to make it to TGS but that it might not be there.

Interesting, that may account for exactly what’s putting me off (no disrespect to her work). Feels too Hollywood. Which is fine, but I don’t go to Square Enix for a Hollywood diet. Still, I’m not not excited. Could’ve just been how the trailer was edited.I felt the same way until last night, when I found out that Amy Henning is on the writing team.
Just came here to say that paying $10 extra because of current gen is unnecessary and predatory. Video game development costs have always risen as the years and gaming console generations pass, yet the $59.99 price tag was always there. Microsoft is still charging the same for their games, be it first party or third/multiplatform; Sony is not selling the regular PS5 at a loss, hell, they waited for Microsoft to announce their price in order to announce theirs; there are mulitplatform games available for PS5 that have the $59.99 price tag (some are $10 extra). This is a matter of Sony being greedy, predatory and not wanting to adjust their profit margins.
But then again, you can't expect much from a company whose only "decent" department is their gaming division.
You as a consumer shouldn't be paying for a corporation's poor business tactics.
Some PS5 games are now $125 AUD instead of $100 AUD, but for the last couple of years the pricing has gone to that level on the PS4 so I wasn't too shocked by it. I'm more shocked by some games launching these days at $85-90 AUD.and I think in Australia it might be over 100
