GS News - Witcher 3 + Driveclub Delays, Will Titanfall On 360 Be Good?

Microsoft promises you that Titanfall will be just as good on 360, and The Witcher 3 and Driveclub are delayed! But for how long?

"back to the drawing board"?  That's making the game sound like it's in serious development trouble.

Much rather wait than deal with a buggy game.  Bought Fallout New Vegas a year late, with the result it was very cheap and no crippling bugs.

That witcher video looks totally amazing. I hope that's actually gameplay and not a doctored demo.

Regardless if he earned the bonus, I don't think anybody deserves a bonus of that much money. I honestly don't think anybody even deserves a bonus of even one million dollars. Many people could be offered jobs with that kind of money, so I think it's a bit unethical to offer bonuses of any significantly large size.


Game of the year? No. Blockbuster? Maybe.

"Just as impressive". No wonder they won't show any 360 gameplay of Titanfall. It probably runs at 792P, with little to no difference in graphics. I don't have an Xbox One, so hoping that is the case for the 360 version.

Game delays are usually a good sign.

Bioshock Infinite was delayed for like a year, and it was incredible.

The Stick of Truth was also delayed for a year, and it's hysterical.


Then again, there's always Duke Nukem Forever as a fair rebuttal....

Glad they are redoing Driveclub, that game looks really cool and fun.  But from the game play footage it doesn't look as polished as Fortza 5.

Great job again, Jess. You look nice in that color, too.

quality over rushing games is a good thing....it's hard to not play Witcher 3 sooner, but I'll be ok!

Is Titanfall going to "suck" on the 360?

LOL

No really how much is Sony paying you shills? No it was awesome on the X1 and will be awesome on the 360 so go suck a fucking **** you sonfanbois getting paid by sony on sonyspot

I have refreshed this page 20 times now and the video still won't play (same goes for The Lobby). Damn it Gamespot, fix this catastrophe of a website already!! And NO, I don't have any addblock running!!

After being burned by unfinished DA:2 and SimCity, I don't really complain about game delays anymore. Take the time you need!

I'll most likely pick up Titanfall when it's on sale... on PC of course!

So Witcher 3 gets delayed and The Division will likely be delayed until next year, as well. Sometimes I wish I could just sleep for a year like Mel Gibson in whatever that movie was called. 


Stay mad, Jess!

Great show Jess.  Thank you for making life fun.  I appreciate all you hard work.  I love your shirt too.


When the guy and gals in charge say, "This is our target release date," the guys actually working on the game probably say, "That's easy for you to say!"


If it takes more time to make it the best, then so be it.  It's not like there's a lack of video games for everyone to waste their life with already.


Drive Club

I don't know much about it, but it looks like a Forza Horizon / Test Drive Unlimited type game.  Forza Horizon was great despite the boring demo.  I can keep playing Forza Horizon until Drive Club gets out.


Witcher 3 is delay.  Great.  I didn't finish Witcher 2 yet and it's on my low priority list.



Titanfall on 360

Yes, I do believe they will make it the best it can be for the Xbox 360 so they can make as much money as they can with good word of mouth advertising and the large install base.  And maybe people will buy it again for the Xbox One when they get one.

With all that being said, "Will I get one?"  Hell No!

Driveclub delayed? I'm not surprised, that's why they call the console Delaystation.

Right now i'm playing my wondeful Titanfall, the game sold pretty well, more than all PS4 games combined, i heard that on vgchartz.

It's good on the X1 so why would it "suck" on the 360? From the 1080p to this now? I guess that is just part of Sonyspots tear down anything Microsoft agenda, may have something to do with all the Sony advertisements on this site, so transparent.

Why dont they just come out already and admit their "news" has a slant because Sony advertises on here, I mean its not like its unprecedented for this site but than again that would require some integrity so they probably wont come out and admit how they are biased because of the Sony$$$ theses Sonyfanbois on Sonyspot are getting to try and tear down anything Microsoft. Really that is just so low.

This is getting a bit ridiculous. The division, watch dogs, the crew, now the witcher. I'v come to expect this from ubisoft, but now other developers are following suit. Im all for getting the best game possible but the thing about game design is that there needs to be a cut off date weather the developers think its finished or not.They need to factor these things in before announcing release dates, or leave them out all together. If we continue to show faith in this kind of behavior we'll end up with a constant flow of cancellations and Duke Nukem Forevers FOREVER.

Booo! Witcher 3 delayed :(  as for Titanfall as long as it plays the same it should be good.  Yay! Jess NES shirt.:P

As long as that "first class experience" for Titanfall brings 60 FPS then I'm happy. 30 FPS would be suicidal for a game so focused on rapid and fluid combat.

Completely agree with everyone about Witcher 3 too. CDPR know exactly what they're doing.

I hope Watch Dogs, Divinity Original Sin, DA Inquisition and a few other games can fill the void of Witcher 3 this year...

@nbf4548 You seriously think that CDProjekt RED are the ones to employ vertical slice demo's? Yeah..no. 

They are one of the last fair developers out there for PC that actually use PC as the lead platform then downscaling to the consoles.

@Rooten Hell yes.  Better to be a patient and ultimately happy consumer than turned into a glorified beta tester for a buggy game sold as finished.  "Hopefully there will be a patch" is the worst phrase in a gamer's language.

Lighten up fellow Xbot.  It just video games.  If there is a Sony slant, then it's nothing new that we haven't experienced for years now.


Enjoy Jess' and her show anyway exactly the way it is.  


Please, leave the crying to PS3 fanboys and the Sonymites, because they do it best.

@LordCrash88 I wouldn't worry too much, there are so many good games coming out this year.

@SaintsRowLA "The only way to do great work is to love what you do. –Steve Jobs" i heard something similar to that 

"pick a job you love doing and you'll never have to work a day in your life"

@suppaphly42  By no means am i saying they should release a buggy game. You either alot more time for bug fixes or dont announce a release date. otherwise whats the point of having a release date. 


In any there industry this would be considered malpractice. I want an amazing game as much as the next guy but if you're going to take my pre-order, i better have that game when you say its going to be out, THE FIRST TIME.

@suppaphly42Bethesda's games are always buggy :P But I agree that developers must fix as many bugs as possible before releasing a game, even if this means that they have to delay it.

"Love is your most powerful emotion.

I learned that back in the early 1990's.  Maybe Dr. Denis Waitly, an Industrial Psychologist, Maybe Dr. Bob Griswold or maybe a few different people.  It's pretty ubiquitous now.

If you went to Jess' Facebook page or Zoine's Tittter, you might have heard it from that TIGERCAT716 guy a while ago.



"Do what you love for a living and you'll never work a day in your life.'

--TIGERCAT716 aka SaintsRowLA


I think I learned that one from. . .I dont' remember, maybe Denis Waitley, Barry Konicov many years ago.

@bricealef @suppaphly42i get your point but time to play the devil so sometimes after they get to a point in the testing they realize they won't have the time they thought they would have, extenuating circumstances and all that, to get it right. some people think it my be the Xbone and the need to optimize the fps and res so it won't look  shitty or maybe cd project red are perfectionist but at the same time are not the biggest company out there so they lack the man power other dev have.  i know it suck but try and be a little understanding. besides it will boost sales not launching so close to DA3 and  it will give people time to finish that one and recover from x-mas so more people who are not die hard fans will give it a go and love it like we will
