Was the Gran Turismo Sport bundle for the PS4 a good idea?

As many of us know Gran Turismo Sport will be available in gaming and electronic stores in many countries on October 19th.  While many long time fans of the Gran Turismo series are excited for the long awaited release of GT Sport there are some who questioned the decision that Sony Interactive Entertainment Taiwan had made in terms of releasing the bundle for an outrageous price.  

The GT Sport bundle had included a PS4, PSVR headset along with an actual 2018 Mazda MX-5 along with other accessories which was priced at $46,000.  Even though, the Gran Turismo Sport bundle was out  for a limited time along having only one available the price seemed ridiculous unless one was actually looking for a brand new 2018 car for a decent price.

Will BlazeBlue Cross Tag Battle have more success on the Nintendo Switch or the PS4?

As many people know we have another crossover tag battle game to look forward to besides Dragon Ball FighterZ entitled BlazeBlue Cross Tag Battle in 2018.  BlazeBlue Cross Tag Battle will be developed by Arc Work Systems and will feature 2D two on two tag team gameplay with many interesting characters such as Jin Kisarigi, Rachael Alucard, Hazama and others.  


As excited as many are for this upcoming BlazeBlue title many are wondering which version of the game will end up selling more between the PS4 and the Nintendo Switch:  While the PS4 version of the game may have better graphics BlazeBlue Cross Tag Battle is less likely to be overshadowed by RPG and first or third person shooter titles.  Also, the fact that Marvel can Capcom Infinite was released for the PS4 a few weeks ago on the PS4 could most likely affect how much BlazeBlue Cross Tag Battle would do on the PS4 in terms of sales.  

Would Marvel vs Capcom Infinite be considered a success?

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite is a game that many people have waited for since the release of Marvel vs Capcom 3 back in 2011.  Ever since Marvel vs Capcom Infinite was released back in late September the game has received positive reviews for its visuals,  crossover gameplay and story mode.  However, the game has been criticized by some for its roster.


In top of that Marvel vs Capcom Infinite was unable to reach the top 10 in terms of best selling games during the week of its release in the UK. While Marvel vs Capcom Infinite is a game that considered to be a blast for those who have been long time fans of the series some would argue that the game pales in comparison to Marvel vs Capcom 3. 


 The exclusion of three on three battles in Marvel be Capcom Infinite definitely worked against the overall quality of the game because it felt like a step backwards in comparison to Marvel vs Capcom 3.  While Marvel vs Capcom 3 was an awesome crossover game back in 2011 it was pretty tough to develop a title that could top it.  Even though, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite did not live up to the expectations of some fans of the series it’s still a solid crossover fighting game overall.  

Will the Secret of Mana Remake be a success on the PS4?

There is no doubt that the Secret of Mana series is among the most popular RPG’s of all time for the SNES.  The fact that the game is receiving a remake is nothing short of amazing.  Square Enix had announced that the Secret of Mana remake will be featured on the PS4, PlayStation Vita and PC.  However, the Secret of Mana remake will not be included on the Nintendo Switch in the future.

While the visual presentation for the PS4 version of Secret of Mana looks impressive some are wondering how well the game will do especially considering the fact that many people can play the 2D version of the game on the SNES Classic.  Also, there are countless JRPG games that are available on the PS4 along with the fact that titles such as the Final Fantasy VII Remake is supposed to be coming out soon on that console as well.  However, for those who do not currently own a SNES Classic the Secret of Mana remake will mostly appeal to gamers around the eyeholes are huge fans of the RPG genre of gaming.  

Will the Frozen Wilds add on help the sales of Horizon Zero Dawn?

It has been recently announced that Horizon Zero Dawn will have a new add on which is expected to be released on November 7th which is ironically the same day the Xbox One X will appear in electronic retail stores worldwide.  Ever since Horizon Zero Dawn was released for the back in the Spring of 2017 the game has managed to sell over 3 million units worldwide for the PlayStation 4.  

Not only is Horizon Zero Dawn one of the most popular titles that Guerrilla Games made for 2017 but the expansion pack looks promising as well.  The month of November is going to be an interesting time period for the gaming world.  While the Horizon Zero Dawn Frozen Wilds add on  is expected to be released on November 7th there is always a chance that it could easily be overshadowed by the Xbox One X.

Is not having Madden 18 on the Nintendo Switch a good idea?

There are many people who are baffled by the decision made by Electronic Arts not to have Madden 18  for the Nintendo Switch.  After all we will be seeing games such as FIFA18 and NBA 2K18 on the Nintendo Switch which is probably one of the fastest selling game consoles of 2017.  However, similar to FIFA18 many of us know that  Madden 18 is able to utilize the Frostbite game engine for the Xbox One and the PS4. 


The visual quality of Madden 18 is incredible and has pretty cool in game content such as Longshot Mode.  While the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One can have anywhere between 500 GB to 1TB of storage space on their respective systems the Nintendo Switch generally starts of with 32GB.  While some might understand EA’s decision to only have Madden 18 for the PS4 and the Xbox One there are definitely Nintendo Switch owners who were most likely unhappy about the news general.  

Should Shenmue 3 be released for multiple game consoles?

It’s been a very long time since Shenmue II was released for game consoles such as Dreamcast and Xbox.  Since the early 00’s fans of the series have been waiting for a sequel to Shenmue II.  However, the sales for Shenmue II for both Dreamcast and the original Xbox console was not too good which is probably why Sega decided not to make a sequel.  Despite, what the sales were for Shenmue II there were still many die hard fans of the series who wanted to see another game one way or another.  


As of right now Shenmue III is set to be released for the PS4 and Microsoft Windows.  But the question that is one everyone’s mind is whether or not Shenmue should be released for consoles such as the Xbox One or the Nintendo Switch.  If Shenmue III is released on multiple game consoles it would increase the likelihood of the title itself being more successful in terms of sales. However, the idea of Shenmue III being only for the PS4 and Microsoft Windows could possibly add more value to the game itself.
