checking google and youtube for project beast info the other day and found that this news has indeed caused a shitstorm among gamers like I have not seen for another game this generation (specifically hermits and lems)
People are already questioning their decision to buy an xbox one or out right saying they will buy a PS4 just to play this game, Hermits are already begging for it to go multiplat. There are not system wars fanboys they are regular gamers in the gaming community. People can say a Souls game is niche all they want but Project Beasts is a system seller and game changer.
THIS IS THE FIRST PURPORTED FOOTAGE OF PLAYSTATION 4'S PROJECT BEASTMaxxGreene • 18 hours ago
I almost wish this was fake. I'll need to buy a PS4 otherwise.

if it is indeed a PS4 exclusive it looks like I'll be buying one

For a person that hasn't adopted the next-gen and has DS and DS2 on 360, this makes a case for Sony

Simply put, it's most likely NOT a native Dark Souls game, and I hope not, pray it's a new IP.... The souls series, which I played from day one, got 3 other to buy ps3's for demon souls, is the greates 8 year stretch of gaming. Souls was Taylor made to thrive on Next Gen. Any new dev can now make a souls game, and if they make it solid, will sell, DS did all the hard work, got us to find fun in failure after failure. Best part, a new dev can bring in Co-Op, so the game in the video may be just that. Souls has made a new gaming category, and the next 2-4 years, will be the start of more game trying to emulate it. BRING DEAMON SOULS TO THE VITA SONY. Morons, giving DS away should've got the guy's nut sliced off. Unreal.

Absolutely getting a PS4 for this :D It'll be awesome owning both consoles and not worrying about exclusives

I bought my ps3 because of demon's souls and it seems history will repeat it selv with this game and ps4 for me!

Has this been confirmed to be a PS4 exclusive or will it be multi-plat? Of course probably nothing is "confirmed" about this yet

I couldn't care less about console wars or whatever,but I will say that all these games coming out exclusive to Sony and PS4 make me glad I chose it instead of a Xbox 1. :)

Coming to PC in 2024.
This original low res 19 second clip from the IGN article was posted on the 29th of this month, it is now the 31st..video already has over half a million views. Here are some reactions from that youtube section.
I swear to god if this is a PS4 exclusive, then I'm going to punch myself in the balls and throw my fucking Xbox One out the window.
If its a PS4 exclusive, they will piss everyone off who has ever played a souls game. I swear to all things sacred, if i just upgraded my computer and this bitch does not come out on PC. ill be slightly saddened. Love you From Software. Seriously, thank you for the 500+ hours on both souls games.
more (the butthurt, buyers remorse, denial and conversion) from an earlier posting about the pictures before the teaser trailer was released
Didn't Sony buy the rights to the xbone? It'll probably be a ps4 / xbone crossplat game
If this does end up being a PS4 exclusive then my PS4 purchase was worth it even if its the only game I ever play on PS4.
If this is true, I feel abandoned by Miyazaki. He threw away and forgot all the xbox people that played the crap out of Dark Souls. I love Dark Souls and I think Dark Souls 2 lost a lot of the charm it had because Miyazaki didn't work on it.
Because its on ps4. I Have no ps4 only xbox one
I don't think FromSoft would sign a "total exclusivity" type of deal with Sony. I believe (if it is Demon Souls 2) it will be exclusive for PS4 for a period of time, then, be sold for PC. There's just too much money to be made on the PC side for Sony to buy From's exclusivity entirely. imo. It sucks to wait, but, for Sony, it's going to sell some PS4's. Having not bought a "next gen" system yet, this will make my decision of which one to buy very easy.
Just saying, for the sake of Souls players as a whole, a whole, not just a portion. I am hoping this is hearsay and lunacy, and that this franchise can move and expand successfully in the direction it's going. For PC gaming, and console development as a whole, it's something that is good for the franchise, and though Japan is behind, From showed great prudence and progressiveness in pursuing a market I am sure they would hate to abandon. Once again, if the option for the title is on PS3 (Which I hope not, honestly considering its limitations) Then more power to them, but if not, locking it down to a single console is a low blow to the fans, and is only a boon to Sony. You don't have to speak to me about legalities, I'm aware, but I'm also aware of the millions of fans that will be hurt by it you don't factor. Also, the Uncharted example is an exemplary display of the fact you don't understand the scope of what is happening here. PC sales for Dark Souls 2 literally rival console sales combined, and this says a lot about what we're talking about a market lost. Uncharted is not a valid comparison here. A game that is? Bayonetta 2 perhaps, but at least that game would have actively never existed if not for Nintendo. This is not the case here.
While i despise the notion of exclusive games this would sway me to buy a PS4 i already know that iv i am to get a next gen console it will be the PS4 i just havnt felt any need to yet and frankly i hope i never do by that i don t mean i hope good games dont come out for it, what i mean is that i hope that all the good games are crossplatform
Would be upset if it became a PS4 exclusive. At least a PC release would be nice.
ugh hope its not ps4 only, souls is my favourite series but I won't buy a console for it. all exclusives are bad news. If it's ps4 exclusive then it'll be the only souls game I don't play
im going 50/50 that "Project beast" is just going to be the DS2 DLC and graphically updated version for PS4/XB1
tbh it would piss me the fuck off is it was a ps4 exclusive. i would absolutely understand why they would do it but the days are long gone when i would spend $300+ on a console to be able to play a game that costs $50-$60.
i love the souls series probably more than any game series i've ever played but i can't justify the huge hardware investment for just one game. i built a pc so i would never need another console after last generation and i'm so glad i did.
the benefits for Sony are obvious but I hope that From will realize that the PC players are a key part of their fan base and at least try to get it released on PC as well...maybe at a later date.
in any case, i'm loving ds2 and i don't see myself getting sick of it anytime soon :)
thanks for the news vaati!
i'd totally buy a PS4 for DS2.
This is probably a long shot, but I'm hoping for a proper PC port. I don't want to shell out the money for a PS4 for just one game (also, I can't).
Kinda annoys me whenever theres an exclusive game though, i understand sonys intention but still i dont think its a good marketing strategy
They'd get much more sales if they released a pc version though, even if it comes half a year or longer after initial release and is a terrible port, I'd still throw down 60$+ for it. JUST SAYIN!(From get on it, I know youre good at terrible ports)
it better be for PC, seeing how all the high quality assets of dark souls 2 meant for PC went there
Wasn't planning on buying a next gen console, but you know... GODDAMMIT! IM TRYING TO PUSH MY MONEY INTO THE SCREEN, BUT NOTHING IS HAPPENING!
It just keeps going on..
This is the level of excitement and agony this news of this game produced. It may be niche game, but it may be the most powerful game to have as an exclusive now that virtually everyone in the gaming community has got a taste of what the souls games are like.
The Hype is real, the butthurt is real, the buyers remorse is real, being a critical factor in deciding which console to buy is real...and this all from a 19 second low res clip of footage.
Is there another game this gen that has cause this much commotion among all groups? What do you think?
