    198X - An Arcade adventure

    9 days to go but yesterday it successfully reached the funding goal!
  7. It's already become monetised though to an extent. There are a number of games which were never made available digitally which now must have a digital version that frequently include all of the dlc and are now repackaged with the publishers consent and purchasable from the digital marketplace. That's how you run it effectively without an extra subscription cost.
  8. It's not a case of it being deemed important or not, In reality it should be a standard feature to get gamers linked in with an ecosystem. There's literally no negative about it. It's a win for the consumer and a win for the platform holder that can execute it properly. They didn't continue with original Xbox compatibility because the 360 wasn't powerful enough to get the vast majority of the library running in an acceptable manner. It's not at the expense of new first party titles, The BC team and First Party studios are entirely different groups with their own budgets. The lack of new studios is the problem with first party titles imo. Most of the operating budget looks like it was spent on buying Mojang/Minecraft.
  9. Yeah, The backwards compatible titles now reach higher native resolutions and framerates than the remakes. Nintendo hasn't even got the virtual console stuff up on the Switch so should they stop putting their back catalogue up again too since it's selling without them? Backwards logic works both ways. Both the virtual console and backwards compatibility are guaranteed revenue streams plus they add consumer confidence in any future device. Well maybe not VC since Nintendo can't get an account system working and force you to buy the same thing each gen. Really boggles the mind people can't see an advantage in bringing your old games forward, Just plug in a hard-drive and you've got immediate access to hundreds/thousands of games all improved alongside your new system.

    The Unofficial Pre-E3 2018 Hype Thread

    I reckon the only hardware announce will be an Elite version 2 controller. I don't see Xbox VR happening until the next gen at the earliest if at all.
  11. Hardware sales are one thing, You make your profit from high software adoption rates and subscription models. I'm pretty sure the previous two generations were loss leaders and made no profit whereas the current setup is starting to record positive quarterly figures in the billions. Let's hope they invest some of that into new studios.
  12. And that's probably why the PS5 won't be backwards compatible. The whole 'is it a system seller' is such a shite default position to start from as there is no consideration for the userbase or customers account, Consumers should be awarding companies that make pro consumer moves not the other way around. If something is a mass market system seller should be of little concern to the end user, I want the company to support my investment in their infrastructure. The PS3 died on it's arse for a number of years through a mixture of having to follow the most successful system of all time, awful launch pricing and incredibly cocky messaging, If the system had launched with software based backwards compatibility instead of physically including PS2 hardware in it then it might have been a bit different.
  13. If every company had an approach to just focus on markets that count and what the mainstream desired then videogames would be incredibly limited, You'd have next to no features and backwards compatibility wouldn't exist at all as they'd be desperate to sell you the same game as a remaster each and every new generation. What you've written is just anti consumer and a reward of bad practice. The people who have the option of backwards compatibility are actually enjoying it and using it. Whether it's deemed a system seller is largely irrelevant as the ability to bring your investment in a generation (digital library) forward shows that company is invested in keeping your content and any associated account relevant in the future which can only be a good thing.

    If anyone wanted a digital copy of the Streetfighter 30th Anniversary collection it's a couple of quid cheaper at cdkeys... https://www.cdkeys.com/xbox-live/games/street-fighter-30th-anniversary-collection-xbox-one Not a huge saving but maybe worth keeping an eye on as it's the only version they seem to be stocking.
