    Mere weeks after the release date reveal which is months off Naughty Dog push it back months more until May. Maybe. We'll see.

    Well done, really, well done. How do you set a release date 5 months off then a few weeks latter, push that back by another three months? How does that happen? How bad is your project management for that to happen? :roll:

    certainly something unexpected happened.
    Ah, we'll have FF7R and cyberpunk to make the wait easier.

    FF7R and Doom Eternal would make do then, not touching Cyberpunk until a PS5 remaster in glorious 4k and High settings. ND better perfect that motion matching technique upon release, I wanna see the game exceeds that E3 gameplay.

    May? ... I will play PS5 version, maybe it will run at 60 fps like remaster of the first TLOU do on the Pro. Or maybe BC would be so good and allow better framerates on PS4 games.

    Too slow! :lol2:

    I have to admit, releasing a game predicated on the premise of a global pandemic wiping everything out when an actual pandemic is claiming thousands of lives worldwide would seem be crass - regardless of the logistical issues mentioned.

    Why do games like Doom Eternal not get delayed then? Digital only version of last of us 2 first?

    Probably because Doom was ready over a month ago versus a game that's still not finished.

    They shouldn't have done that. I am pissed (it's probably the anti-BC guy's fault). There might not be much stores when they finally decide to release their game. In a world when digital is 50-60% this should not happen at all. What's their excuse for delaying Iron Man VR anyways ?

    What, they are waiting for next winter ? When the Covid-19 will most likey spread again ? So new pandemic, new quarantines etc. Smart.

    Ye most likely, i understand them delaying it though, would look bad to release a game now when the world is in this much trouble.

    It must really be giving Sony marketing headaches. I bet they don't want to show PS5 games because that will totally diminish The last of us 2 and ghost of Tsushima.

    Both those games look amazing for current gen but will pale in comparison to a potential Horizon Zero Dawn 2 on PS5.

    I could not possibly disagree with you more. This would be have been in really bad taste. Nobody would care that Sony spent five years+ working on this game, releasing a game with this theme at this time. A fucking awful idea. :yep2: People are dying.

    then don't release murder simultators (CoD and all) because people get killed everyday, don't release racing games because people are dying in car accidents everyday.
    That's non sense

    Bullshit. Did people blame Nintendo for releasing their biggest game of the game (and probably The biggest game of the game now) in the heart of the epidemic and quarantine (in most wester countries) ? And Nintendo sell even less digitally compared to Sony MS.

    How many complaints have you seen ? How many articles ? On the contrary people are happy to play the game during those hard times.

    It would be like having a party releasing that game, while people are dying around the globe. Delaying is the only wise choise, also PR wise. The game will come anyway, just later. Get it together with the PS5 or something.

    what are logistic issues? Are they referring to brick and mortar stores / selling physical copies?
