even rare, as shitty as they've become have so many IP's they can draw from as pure fan service, that would boost the brand a ton. a new conker? a new perfect dark? a new banjo (a real one)? (39 minutes ago)
i miss the days when xbox had exclusives like doom 3. riddick. voodoo vince. blood wake. jade empire, KOTOR, morrowind, galleon, jet set radio, republic commando... fuck it, even blinx the cat. (42 minutes ago)
they need fresh blood so to speak. and they need to support them, not send them out to die. and not turn their back on them entirely just because they sold .5 million less than their expectations. (45 minutes ago)
but they can't do that by releasing more versions of the same game. uncharted isn't going to sell a PS4 to someone who hates uncharted. but gravity rush might? maybe last guardian? maybe spiderman? (47 minutes ago)
right now i think it's safe to say MS has fully catered to their own fanbase. but now they need to draw in new players to increase their userbase. (49 minutes ago)
generally though they need more studio's making various titles of various budgets instead of 3 studio's making the same 3 AAA games over and over again. (50 minutes ago)
@MrWhite: generally yeah. i mean, MS need their next gears of war-level success, even if it just becomes an annualized addition to their usual games. but it would be something. (52 minutes ago)
