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.

In Harvest Moon: Light of Hope will allow players to monitor how well their crops are growing along with being able to determine what they are ahead of time.  The Farming Friend game mechanic is one that is very resourceful since it provides players with important info about their crops in relation to building their farms.  Harvest Moon: Light of Hope is a game that could definitely thrive on the Nintendo Switch or PC in terms of popularity and sales.  However, when it comes down to the PS4 would be hard to determine how well Harvest Moon: Light of Hope would do especially since RPG and shooter titles tend to receive more mainstream attention than any other genre for that console.

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.  

Will the Nintendo Switch continue to have the upper hand over the PS4?

The sales for the Nintendo Switch has been quite impressive since its release back in the early part of March 2017.  Since its release the Nintendo Switch has been surpassing game consoles such as the PS4 and Xbox One in terms of monthly sales on some occasions.  In fact it has recently been announced that the Nintendo Switch has surpassed the Nintendo Switch in terms of monthly sales in July 2017.  

It’s no question that the Nintendo Switch aid shaping up to be one of the best selling game systems of 2017.  While the  Nintendo Switch has been thriving in the gaming market the momentum that the console had gained this year going into 2018 can be affected by new developments that has appeared out of nowhere.  The issues that Nintendo has with Gamevice along with the release of the Xbox One X in the Fall of 2017 might can play a sign role in whey or not the Nintendo will continue to have the upper hand in the gaming market.

Should Dissidia Final Fantasy NT be ported for other game consoles?

As many people have recently heard Dissidia Final Fantasy NT is expected to be released exclusively for the PlayStation 4 on January 30th in 2018.  The fact that Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Is going to be a PlayStation 4 exclusive is something that many people are looking forward to.  However, some are questioning whether or not Dissidia Final Fantasy NT should be ported for any other game console such as the Nintendo Switch or Xbox One.

When the first Final Fantasy was released back in 2008 it was exclusively for the PSP.  Since its release Final Fantasy Dissidia had managed to sell over 2 million units worldwide making it one of the most successful fighting games that Square Enix has ever produced on the PSP.  Making titles like and Final Fantasy Dissidia and Dissidia Final Fantasy NT exclusive for PlayStation based consoles was probably one of the reasons why the first game was a success to begin with.  Making Dissidia Final Fantasy NT available available for multiple game consoles probably would not be a good idea in the long.

Should more PS4 games be ported to the PlayStation Vita?


When it comes down to the PlayStation Vita many people say that the handheld gaming console paled  in comparison to the likes of the Nintendo 3DS and the PSP.  But for some reason it seems like we don’t get the chance to see many PS4 games receive ports for the PlayStation Vita.  There are games such as Overwatch, Titanfall 2, Final Fantasy XV and many others that could turn the heads of gamers and make theme want to purchase the PlayStation Vita.


Also, having video game titles such as Final Fantasy XV and Overwatch ported for the PlayStation Vita could help the sales of the console as well since Nintendo 2DS & 3DS does not have the ability to play those type of games. There should definitely be more mainstream PS4 titles that should be ported for the PlayStation Vita unless Sony decides to release a new portable game console in the future.
