Pity that this triple-A title doesn't have a platinum trophy on PS4.

It will when its all released. Remember. This is just episode 1 of 6. The real pity is they're ruined the game by making large portions of it online only. Everything you unlock while online doesn't translate to when you're playing offline. Disconnect mid mission and your thrown back to the main menu. Challenges (99% of the replayability) are locked behind online which currently is inconsistent as hell... Its fucking dumb. Not since EA tried to lock sim city behind an internet connection have I witnessed such a shitty DRM practice.

DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!

play offline, challenges are locked behind online so one can cheat.

If you play offline your progress isn't retained when you DO go online, and challenges (the meat of the game) aren't even available. And what difference does it make if people cheat in a single player game exactly? Oh right...leaderboards...the same leaderboards which are bugged and give you the higest possible attainable score because it says you completed the level in 0's. Riiiight. Leaderboards are pointless if they're broken.

I swear I completed the game and it never disconnected even once, any my internet connection isn't even that fast, I think some haters and employees of other companies are trying to bad mouth this game, don't miss out on this great game because of this, and the graphics and music are really nice, and in Just Cause 3 you can also play it completely offline by disconnecting your internet connection from the PS4 settings.

and i should have to do that why exactly? if you don't literally pull the plug of your connection the game constantly stalls while it connects and disconnects itself from the net at random. that's fucking dumb considering the only reason for it is some poxy tracking of actions you do in game (i jumped 3 ft further then my friend mike...whooptey-do)

as for hitman. bully for you and your lack of disconnects. there are plenty of people with issues though and it isnt some conspiracy bullshit either...it's not even like personal connections are to blame either... it's entirely a server side issue and they've admitted as much.

be a corporate apologist all you like, but the fact is the game is an anti consumer DRM fest in it's current state.

it has locked single player content and unlocks behind an online connection, a connection that is ropey at best. and when it does disconnect you you lose all progress in regards to unlocked items and starting locations, and on top of that, don't even have access to the challenges (most of the games replayability) i mean, if you even want to use the sniper rifle you have to be online...what sort of walled off bullshit is that? people keep bringing up that it combats cheating, but the game is cheating for you anyway when it awards you 210,000 points (the maximum) because it thinks you completed the level in zero fucking seconds. then you have the issue of the recent patch TAKING AWAY the games pre-order bonuses and not fixing a damn thing. and that's not even counting the fact NON of this was mentioned prior to sale. even in their own FAQ regarding online and offline play they make no mention of locking out challenged and unlocked items. they've given us the very bare MINIMUM of content that's accessible offline and you want me to applaud them? fuck that!

there is a reason people are getting refunds from steam and why the game has piss poor reviews from users. and i can say right now if i knew this was the way they were going to handle things i wouldn't have touched this game. which is genuinely a shame because the core gameplay is great. but much like MGSV it's surrounded in a bunch of corporate BS decisions that ruin it.

Will be great when the servers go down for all these always online single player games...

The Division is online only too, but I don't see people talk about that.

This is a single player game, see the difference?

it's an MMO game and one advertised as being online only. there is a huge difference between that and misleading the consumer into thinking certain aspects of your game can be played offline, only for them not to be by the time you actually start playing it. if you can't differentiate the two then i don't really know what to say.

here's an idea...just look at their twitter or the official forums...you actually have to actively search for positive opinion. people aren't happy and rightly so. there was no mention of key single player features being locked behind an online connection. but IO got their money...who care's right? pfft i mean is there really any justification as to why even mission ratings at the end of a stage require online? sending that data to the leaderboards, sure, but displaying it for people who are offline? really?

but i would argue there is no reason for the divisions story mode to be online only given those missions and the world itself aren't reliant on there being other people around. the world it empty beyond the hubs and competitive play is walled off anyway. ideal world it would have worked like destiny in that sense...BUT...as i said. it was online only from the start. they weren't trying to mislead anyone. people bought it knowing exactly what it was. and besides some dumb choices in regards to player collision in HUB areas, the servers have actually been pretty solid. hitmans servers however...have not.

I understand that people were surprised that its online only, but I swear the Hitman servers have been solid, I don't know if other people are lying or what.

You have been lucky or havn't played enough yet. Its as simple as that

Which was never advertised as being accessible offline. You must be able to differentiate between buying something and getting something different to what was advertised, and buying something and getting what you were told it would be?

if you don't understand the difference it must be very easy to sell you less then you paid for on ebay lol.

as I told you I completed the game and I'm playing the contracts, and my internet connection is DSL and isn't that fast, but it's ok.

and I leave the game on pause for an hour and when I comeback I'm still not disconnected, I have the PS4 version, maybe the problems are on PC? maybe the servers give priority to PS4? I don't know.

I'm on ps4 so it's not platform specific. Every platform is affected.
