They would need to buy a major publisher or a bunch of studios if the idea is to really boost their brand and sales in the region.

Just having a studio of the level of From Software won't be anywhere close to enough.

Would be like their Xbox and Xbox 360 days where they had several notable Japanese games but couldn't maintain the output needed for consistent sales and brand growth in that market.

It's not moot if you're asking why somebody wants an Xbox. Unless I'm supposed to prefer what sells well?

I do think next gen will be microsofts strongest console. Itll still be the 3rd best selling (like all other microsoft consoles) but they will have some good exclusives next gen so i think people will own both consoles next unlike this gen where most either passed completely on xbox or got the 3 exclusives on pc

They've been making a lot great moves in terms of picking up studios. From an objective standpoint, PS4 is the better console to me, simply because it has a lot more games I'm interested in. A good UI is nice and all, but it's the games that matter most.

That said, it can't be understated how important it is for me, and likely a lot of people to play on the console my friends are on. Despite all of PS4's great games, all of my most memorable moments from the current gen, come from playing with friends. Intense, nail biting tekken matches with Kalyx, fucking around in GTA while talking about doing coke off miss eleizabeth's back with Heisenberg, etc, etc. Those are the moments I remember most.
God of War is a masterpiece but I never laughed so hard that I blacked out for several seconds while playing it.

Corss play should be industry standard going forward. You have it with PC and Xbone now basiclly 100% and that trend is going up. Stadia, Xbox, PC, PlayStation and even switch will all be playing with one another next gen

The setup for the actual cabinet looks cool, but the games dont excite me much. And i have a bad feeling there will be issues with the controls on that cabinet.

I was hoping for The Simpsons arcade cabinet. Or maybe NBA Jam/NFL Blitz.

But Arcade1up did give us TMNT and Marvel cabinet, so i cant complain.

Would they even be able to do NBA Jam and NFL Blitz? The licensing would probably be a nightmare due to all those retired players.

You might be thinking of the NBA Playgrounds series from Saber Interactive.

They made two of them soo far but the first one had some performance issues, at least on the Switch.

According to SNK's CEO, the company recently rejected an exclusivity offer from Epic Games for the PC version of their upcoming Samurai Showdown game. Also revealed Epic's tactic for snagging games as Epic Games Store exclusive is them guaranteeing a certain amount of sales and making up the difference if the real sales are lower.

SNK rejected the offer due to the game already having strong pre-order numbers and didn't want to hurt their sales goal had they taken the deal.





Would explain why some companies who took Epic's deal don't reveal sales numbers from Epic's store since real sales are lower than the guaranteed number or don't want to expose what the guaranteed number is. Then you have others who blatantly pass off the guarantee as launch sales or get pissed when people call them out for the deception used for sales numbers.

That is objectively a pretty good deal, tho. I'm guessing the sales subsidy is based on the reality of the bad press they get and the fact that Steam is easily the primary source for PC purchases. Drama aside, Epic's store is demonstrably offering a better take than Steam. This is far more nuanced when taking in every side of the equation.

In interest of fairness; yes, Epic needs to buff up the Epic store. If anything but to defang that common argument against them. Also they need to cut these deals well before a game has announced its platforms. They have to know a game suddenly being exclusive to a platform/launcher is bad taste.

I do wonder that when they do beef up the Epic Store yo rival Steam, will gamers get over it or will they shift goalposts.

According to reports, the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft Story Mode Season 1 & 2 got a huge price hike recently for both games episodes ahead of its delisting next week.

The official reason wasn't due to greed but more so of an issue caused from pulling the game from sale on the Xbox 360 and not wanting any new sales made since technically its not supposed to be on sale anymore.

Quote:
Minecraft: Story Mode games will no longer be supported via the necessary game servers on June 25th, 2019. All of Minecraft: Story Mode content was removed from sale on each digital storefront ahead of that happening. In the process of removing these items for sale, on the Xbox 360 platform only, existing Minecraft: Story Mode players became unable download their remaining episodes. From working with the Xbox 360 platform, the only solution to this situation is to re-list the downloadable content for purchase. So, to assist existing customers, all the downloadable Episodes for the two Minecraft: Story Mode titles are temporarily re-listed but, to deter new purchases, they will be re-listed at a very high price!

They deserve the brunt of the blame, but Epic knows it will fuck people over when they offer companies all this money. It’s still pretty shitty on their part, imo.

I think a counterpart to steam is healthy for the industry, but not a counterpart that doesn’t give a fuck about their consumers. Forcing players to use their barely competent store, because why not? Why spend time and resources to make a fully functional storefront at launch when players have to go there anyway to get the games they want?

Epic hasn't forced anyone to sign a thing.

If Steam simply matched their offer devs wouldn't need to make that decision. Think from their perspective. Are you gonna take a lesser paying job because people like that business better?

Can Steam even match it? If they can, then why haven't they done so for any of these titles.

Anyway, my main issue is them spending all this time and energy picking up exclusives instead of making a store that isn't dog shit.

To retain more revenue would be my first guess for why they won't match that deal.

Yes but it would also go against the mindset they've held for a long time on the PC market. They favor an "open garden" approach instead of a closed off one like with consoles and games exclusivity.

Like if they wanted to money hat games, they would have done it when GOG was starting to rival them as a digital store or cut the legs out of Origin when EA proclaimed they were challenging Steam's dominance.

Epic is pretty much hedging their bet that their massive pool of Fortnite users and them grabbing as many big games as possible will entice people to use their store over Steam regardless of the issues with the store itself. Its why something like a shopping cart feature gets put on the back-burner since Epic doesn't see the store itself as their priority.

Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford is currently facing new allegations of him siphoning around $12 million from the company for his own personal benefit.

Supposedly Borderlands 3 publisher 2K Games sent the company money meant to be paid out as bonuses to the staff for their work on the game. Pitchford managed to get approval from 2K Games to personally handle the money and allegedly diverted it away to a personal company owned by him instead.

This was revealed in a recent updated filing to a lawsuit Pitchford is currently facing from the company's former lead attorney.
