GotBored brought up the money argument. You need to take that with him how more money = better games.
A figure of money is just that, unless you invest in new IP who gives a **** what figure you are throwing around? It's easy to chuck money at just making Halo x, Gears of War x, Forza x....
Everyone needs to bring the new IP to stop this further continuation into "and then everything was COD/FIFA".
There's more evidence to suggest Sony, and even Nintendo being riskier with their money from last gen, so MS better be taking some of that money and investing in homegrowing, not just buying out 3rd party devs and creating some new Halo.
About unique IPs
- Forza Horizon is a brand spanking new IP that came out last year (well 2012)
- Halo Wars and Spartan Assault are new IPs
You can create new IPs in existing universe. I like how you guys like to discount Halo when the universe goes much deeper than any contemporary game.
You also have likes of Max and State of Decay that come to mind.
The Order is not 1080p, you probably won't enjoy it.
That's the thing though.. I never like Halo, Forza, Gears. Mech FPS games don't appeal to me. Project spark you can get on Windows. Haven't looked into the other two.
I wasn't ranting, I was stating my opinion. Whereas I really like Knack, and want Drive Club, Infamous, The Order, Uncharted 4. There are other games I want that are cross platform.
You can't qualify a platform with subjective opinions based on your taste. (edit: I mean pass a judgement in this particular thread of discussion).
For every Drive Club that Sony is unable to ship, there is a Forza Horizon 2.
For every Uncharted, there is/will be a Gears and so on.
