    A) How are they making you? They can't force you to buy them and have not stopped the others from working.

    B) What if you don't already own it?

  • Just Cause 3 beats Rainbow Six: Siege in UK chart

    @jamyskis1981

    Or they only play what is on their console? The WiiU has an install base of what? 11million? It's estimated on VGchartz that only 2.6m of those are in the EU, so the UK amount will be even smaller than that.

    Any one expecting a WiiU game that's niche as it is to sell loads is in a dream world.

    Had it been multiplatform and not a first party game it would of done a lot better.

    You can't blame gamers for not buying a game for a console they don't own.

  • Report: PS4's PS2 emulation won't support discs or PS3 digital purchases

  • Mr-Writer 07/12/2015

    @frazzl

    No, you have been saying Sony are MAKING, people rebuy their games.

    There is no twisting about it, you have said this, and it is not true, as they have a choice not to buy them, maybe rather than trying to
    imply that I am illiterate, you should actually read what you write and stop using words that suggest something that isn't actually happening?

    I have said a lot on this thread the lack of disc support is shit, and the lack of discount for those who already own digital is also shit.

    Despite neither of those effecting me, and yet you also accuse me of "lacking vision", when I asked if its still a shit service for those that are not effected (like me) by these things?

    Are they still scum for offering people who didn't get to play these games? Or didn't keep their collections because they did what a lot of gamers do and traded their games in?

    See this is the difference between us, despite this not effecting me in a negative way (other than price but again I'm not being forced to buy them and can wait till what I want goes on sale) I can still sympathise with my fellow gamers, and agree with their reasons for not being happy.

    How that is a lack of vision I will never know.

    I expect a reply, but I can't say for sure if I have the time or if I can make the effort to respond as we are just going around in circles and now Episode 13 is in here getting giddy and is trying to troll again I really doubt I shall reply.

    So peace out, I do understand why people are upset, I just think it's not the crime of the century though it's been treated like such, merry Christmas.

    "Meanwhile, Sony is only promising low-quality streaming and repurchases. That's honestly quite pathetic."

    But what if I like me you owned the original disc, got rid, but didn't buy the PS3 digital version?

    Or even if I never owned the game in the first place? For example I have never owned Dark Cloud and there was never a PS3 digital version, is it pathetic that I can now buy this game if I wish?

    They are not asking you to do anything, just like they are not making you or stopping you from buying a new PS2 if you want to play it so badly.

    I have not once said that is better than what MS are offering, but what I have said is if you think they are offering this for free because they care and not because they are chasing sales you would be wrong.

    But they are not. If you own the console they were purchased for you can still play them at no extra cost on those consoles.

    I am able to read perfectly, you just don't want to admit I have a valid point.

    Actually there was one more thing.

    "Surely you can be so limited in vision"

    So it's not okay for Sony to put PS2 games up on PS4 because someone might own the disc? So only those who own the disc can play the game? So if you never owned a PS2 and don't want to pay ridiculous price ( some eBay listing want double for Dark Cloud then what Sony want) then tough shit you are not allowed to play that game on PS4 because someone owns the PS2 disc?

    Lolz yeah that's not "limited vision" is it lol

    The 3% was a totally overestimated guess, but okay since you want accurate numbers they don't exist as far as I am aware so I can't say but if you think it's a high number then we will have to agree to disagree.

    I never said I want to "silence" you I'm just pointing out that the overreaction is pathetic, which it is. There is voicing discontent and then there is overreaction, which most of these comments fall into, including most of yours.

    Any way it's boring me now, you keep being outraged, I will go back to gaming.

    You don't have to rebuy those games, what if they add a game you DONT own, is that still scummy?

    I don't own Dark Cloud, and even though I don't own the GTA trilogy I now can (and get some sweet trophies) if I want to, is that scummy?

    Sure it sucks if you have a PS2 collection and all your games are added. But let's be honest that won't happen to everyone, and I'm willing to be bet out of the 30m people out there it effects no more than 3%.

    It would of been better had they got a discount at least, and the prices are high, but at the end of the day it is what it is, it's not crime of the century, you don't have to re-buy those games so I still stand by my stance why not a great move and a little dissapointing the reaction of most is OTT.

    There is nothing wrong with just going "that's a bit shit I won't be buying any games I already own"

    You do know Sony (as a whole group) are in money troubles, the idea is to make money at some point. If you have one division making profit while others make loss why would any corporation let that division spend money on a service they could make money from?

    You didn't answer my question, how are Sony making you buy those games? Do you not have a choice? Are Sony adding that game to your downloads and taking money from your bank account?

    No so how are they MAKING you? Do you need to buy this game? No I'm pretty sure you won't die if you don't buy it.

    Also if you think ranting and raving and using horrible words like cunt (which is a derogatory word towards women) on a gaming website gets things changed then there is no hope.

    Not buying the product is what will change things, actions speak louder than words.

    They can't afford to! Frazzl do you think that publishers are letting MS add BC for free?

    Hahahahahahahahahahaha.

    "Making people re-purchase games they already own"

    Here we go another over reaction how are they making you?

    "And USD15 for a game I already own (Rogue Galaxy) is taking the piss!"

    Awful price I agree, but you already own it so what's the problem? Or are they making you buy it again?


    Oh wait... There not? Then don't buy it! It's a shit price so don't give in they can't force you to buy it!

    I would like all the GTA games but I won't pay that price but I'm not going to cry about it, I will just forget about them and find another game to play.

    These games will go on sale at some point and once they reach an acceptable price I may bite.

    Sony are making some poor choice price wise (PS Now for example great service, works well, horrible pricing) so I won't be using it.

    Some people are acting like they NEED these games, but they don't.

    Singstar is a total different kettle of fish, they have to re negotiate every song, but it's not just with the label it's also with the artist, and even the director of the video, and the song writer(s) if just one of them say no it's a no go.

    However! You are spot on with their lack of support it's extremely poor, but I don't believe they said every song would be possible, but that they would at least try. It has slowed down a lot in both adding old songs and adding new.

    And one of the reasons it can't work the same is because of money. MS are no doubt subsidising the cost to get them the good PR and sales they desperately need. Hence why a publisher has to approve the game be added.

    That won't come cheap, but MS can afford it, Sony can't, simple as.

    If you think Sony are any worse or better than MS, they are not, they are all the same, it's just depends on how good their PR is doing.

    But what if they emulate a game you don't already own?

    Like Dark Cloud, it's very hard to get a copy, so is making that game available a shitty thing?

    Or should only those who bought it get to enjoy it?

    I'm willing to bet Dark Cloud on PS4 will cost less than this..

    I do concede your point about the code not being altered, but despite the emulator doing the work there are still changes.

    No I don't as I don't sling mud at any of them.

    I know I'm just a way to make money, but I know I'm not seen any different by Sony as I am by MS.

    But it's not the same performance, that code is being altered much like the code for Journey on PS3 is altered to work on PS4, it changes things and adds, if you alter something to improve it and add things before that weren't there it different.

    And those who shitted on X1 are just as bad, okay their fears were right, but I can't take anyone serious who over reacts without knowing the full story.

    I said it before, gamers get pissed off when news sites report something negative about gaming without knowing (or adding) the facts.

    And yet they do the same.

    I have already said the lack of disc BC is shit, and I get why people would be dissatisfied with that.

    But those who are upset about the PS3 classics? There are very few classics on there anyway, but again we don't know if you do have to pay full price for the new one.

    If they do its shitty, but not end of the world, Sony are investing in new games, exsisting IP's all the time surely that counts for something?

    You can't get it right all the time.

    It should do, but that costs money, remember the expensive PS3 which was fully BC?

    Yeah people didn't want it as it cost too much.

    But the reality is people say they want something, but when it comes to putting their hand in their pocket they can realise they don't actually want it.

    Don't get me wrong the PS3 launch price was stupid, but as soon as they cut features to cut the price people said they wanted those features.

    It is a huge advantage to PC, and one consoles will likely never have.

    And again there are still unanswered questions that could change the whole perception.

    I just think ATM there are a few voicing their displeasure and few acting like a terrible crime has been committed.

    Also if we want to get into the "ms and Nintendo do this.."

    Nintendo tie purchase to a console not an account and they charge you to move your Wii VC games to WiiU.

    And again if you think MS are doing emulation because they "care". They are not they are doing it to get sales, and if they didn't need those sales we wouldn't be seeing 360 emulation.

    Remember when they said you are backward if your BC?

    None of the 3 are perfect, and if your gonna sling mud at one then sling at all 3.

    And I can understand why they disagree, but I don't think it's clear cut as some people make out, plus we don't know all the details.

    Cross buy might be an option but not all games, just like some PS3> PS4 games most Sony ones are but they can't force 3rd party.

    Plus again we don't know if any other "classics" are coming over.

    I can understand people thinking its a bit shitty as it is, but there are a lot of cringe worthy outrage on here as well mate.

    It's not crime of the century and you don't HAVE to, you can choose to say "nah fuck that". If they already own it then go and play it.

    "but they expect users to purchase digital titles again? "

    But we don't know this, Sony can't force cross buy on developers, just like MS can't put any 360 game on the X1.

    The difference is MS have the funds to at least compensate publishers.

    If Sony published PS2 classics are not cross buy (we don't know that they are not) then yeah that's a bit shit.

    But it's hardly crime of the century is it?

    MS are only giving it out for free due to the fact they are losing the sales race, which despite what you read they do care about.

    Also lets be honest MS are in a much better situation than Sony.

    But let's stick to the facts shall we. We don't know which games will be coming to PS4 do we? Who is to say that some publishers don't want to have them moved over? That little line in the video could be just Sony covering their arses.

    Also we don't know for a fact (although I believe most are right) that they will charge full price, what if they do offer an upgrade system? What if like other PS3 ports they allow cross buy?

    We don't know the full story yet, I'm not thrilled if they do charge as it's not fair on gamers, but then again as I said before I don't expect any company to be fair, they just see us as cash machines.

    However if I don't want a product I will move on.

    The only games we know about are either not on the store (Dark Cloud) or are Star Wars games that were released as a bundle and don't have a separate release yet.

    Much like cross buy there maybe that option, and I personally hope there is (I don't own any PS2 classics but want my fellow gamers to be able to) at least that option.

    I have no problem with the X1 or MS, sure I don't own one but so what?

    I'm just not stupid enough to believe that MS have added BC out of the kindness.

    Look at it from their point of view, their console is lagging behind, even in the US, a market they dominated last gen, the exclusives haven't changed that, neither has the price cuts, so what's left?

    Well a lot of 360 owners will have moved to PS4, but that doesn't mean they burned their 360's and games. So get 360 games working on X1, it was only ever ruled out by Don Matrick because he didn't want it, it's not like they said from day one "it's impossible" it just didn't fit his vision.

    But his vision was not what gamers want, so it changed.. Very quickly.

    This is how all business work, I don't think MS are evil or anything I just think people need to see past the PR, same with Sony and "for the players" it's total PR bs.

    Gamers would, but they want them for free and that's not always possible.

    People will say "well look at MS" but let's be brutally honest, one it's emulation from one generation, it's not a huge leap, they where always able to do it, Don just didn't want it.

    And do you truly think that if MS had the lead and was running away with the console race we would still see this? I highly doubt it, MS need good PR so have chucked money at it.

    Fair play I say but I highly doubt that if they weren't so far behind we would still be talking about it.

    Also Sony are upscaling a lot of old games, getting them to 60fps, making them fully compatible with all their PS4 features and adding trophies. That costs money.

    I can understand people being annoyed, but Sony are a business just like everyone else, they are not really any better or any worse then any other company our their.

    And I think a lot of gamers take things as being personal.

    It is possible that's what they are doing! But they are not just emulating it they are adding features to it.

    Thats probably why it doesn't support discs, I mean trophies for a start, how on earth are you meant to add trophies to every single PS2 game that ever exsisted? Also maybe upscaling the games is a lot of work each game would have to be worked on to get the emulator to upscale them to 1080p and 60fps.

    Whilst I understand your frustration but think you are over simplifying the situation.

    The cross buy games are ports, and they pretty much match up.

    These emulated games are being upscaled to 1080p, having trophy support added as well as other features like remote play.

    Someone has to do that work, and a lot of the PS2 Classics are 3rd party, so you would need someone to work of them, that will cost someone. It's not like Sony could get away adding whatever trophies they want as the games don't belong to them.

    The only other way around it is if some have trophies, support remote and share play and the others don't.

    But where would be the point.

    It's a bit shitty, and I won't be buying any unless it's a must play (like Timesplitters 2) but as I said they have done a little more then just straight emulation.

    Sony didn't finance is.

    When Disney bought Star Wars they naturally got LA and all their IP's.

    I think I read that Sony went to Disney about making Grim Fandango themselves, not long after Double Fine also went to Disney. But they found out that Sony had already made a bid for Grim.

    So Tim went to Sony, and I believe Sony helped Double Fine secure the rights to those games with Disney.

    Now weather it's full console exclusivity or just timed I don't know but I believe it's a thank you gesture from Tim for not only Sony stepping aside but also helping Df.

    The PS4 has Bloodborne released this year rated higher than any of the AAA X1 exclusives, why have you only included exclusives released in the last month and not the whole year?

    Oh I see because if you included the other months your whole argument would collapse.

    Games are played and released all year round, releasing at Christmas has no effect on the games quality or fun factor.

    No there isn't.

    Taking remasters out on both sides Xbox and PS4 are neck and neck with 5 games each with games with an 80+ metacritic score.

    Expect PS4 has 1 which are is in the 90's and X1 has none.

    So technically PS4s exclusives are rated higher.
