@JJ2 There are all the time going to be comparisons. However I do assume a recreation like Loss of life Stranding could be considered higher as a PS5 launch title quite than a PS4 swan track.
In fact if it seems PS5 is only a PS4 New Professional, which means it performs all PS4 video games but additionally PS5 video games – just like the New 3DS – then individuals will not have to purchase no matter it’s that is launched on PS5, they will simply preserve taking part in PS4 video games in uprezed 4k or regardless of the PS5 will do to them.
However there’s all the time additional pleasure from a brand new console launch – Ninteod was promoting video games like 1 2 Swap and Snipperclips alongside Zelda, neither of which might promote very properly now – and I believe that pleasure woudl assist Loss of life Stranding greater than say one other Uncharted, Tomb Raider or God of Struggle, which might simply promote on it is personal.
And I did not imply to knock Spiderman, simply that possibly final 12 months or subsequent 12 months it might need obtained a number of extra awards, not having to go up in opposition to GoW and RDR2. The primary 12 months of a brand new console is often just a little barren – Swap modified that with it is held again Wii U Video games – and that might profit DS greater than different identified video games. New IP are all the time a troublesome promote, therefore GoW, RDR2, and all the opposite by no means ending sequels from Uncharted, Tomb Raider, AC, and many others.
