After the release of the fantastic TLoU2 and the Assassin's Creed clone Ghost of Tsushima PlayStation fans who don't play games have been celebrating their gaming year. And rightly so.

Xbox and Phil Spenser are indeed having a bad year but one can't help but notice how regardless of the difficulties their two main releases, Ori and MSFS, so far outscore Sony's two best efforts.

Should Sony just quit if they can't even bring real competition on their best year? Or should we wait for Bugsnax to release before passing judgement?

Of course they should quit! And join a monastery! Why make all that money when you can become a monk and pray to Buddha everyday?

You seem to forget, Sony got FF7 Remake, Persona 5 Royale, Nioh 2, Dreams, MLB The Show, Last of Us 2, Ghost Tsushima and more. Hope that jogs your memory.

They should. I mean they just can't compete.

If you're not number 1, you're good as last place.

There's also no profit.

Why doesn't PlayStation understand this?

@SolidGame_basic: Glad we agree. Their ratios are always terrible, they always have to go big only to achieve lower percentiles. Kind of a waste if you ask me.

The only way Sony can win is when there's no competition in that genre.

Anyway, why would Sony quit gaming when the money is still rolling? Don't know about the rest of Sony fans but I love playing my games😊

Never mind that gamespot isn’t the gospel and IGN gave GoT a 9/10 and EPN gave it a 9.5/10.

If only SW can get the Sheep back in the game, both Lemmings and Sheep can make SW awesome in the long run.

Funny how GS promotes SW for trolling, insulting and whatnot to each other just to promote traffic. They know it's immoral, a lot of people want tighter regulation on this shit, even within governments. My piece for today, carry on.

@Random_Matt: That's actually why I've created this. If this is what SW is right now then at least let's have it both ways. I mean you have a single PS fan having a psychotic episode and creating tens of toxic threads and GS is cool with it. So hell, **** it.

What kind of an idiot would take Ori and Flight Sim over TLoU2 and Tsushima?

Flight Sim barely qualifies as a game and Ori is kind of the same thing over again including the BS glorified QuickTime Events with not enough checkpoints. The story is interesting Guacamelee does that type of gameplay much better. I have the means to play it and wifey even enjoyed the first one but after getting through the BS QTEs once she never wants to play that series again.

By all means enjoy that shit, not here to kink shame, but man that's really reaching trying to compare those sets of games.

Sheeps on life support until nintendo announce something that actually decent coming soon. Why nobody is making a thread on that very awful Zelda wii potential switch port. I sure will not do a nintendo post.

The funny part is that neither of those studios are part of Xbox Game Studios.

I guess Phil bought the wrong studios.😅

But in all seriousness, Sony's had a ridiculous year so far. TLOU2, Ghost, FF7R, Nioh 2, Dreams, P5R etc.

What's MSFS?

And Ori is a shamless clone of a previous game.

Use some logic, man

How about to wait for all reviews? TLOU 2 had 96 on meta after 85 reviews.

Ouch. The cows don’t seem to be taking this all that well. Poor clowns just can’t seem to catch a break. I say we wait for the Bugsnax reviews but if it flops then yeah I’m thinking that Sony should throw in the towel.

This was a friggin response I made a thread on Flight Simulator getting good reviews. He didn't like the tone of it and created this one adding another old ass indie ori into the mix.

Xbox one isn't even getting Flight simulator anytime soon so this thread sucks.

@ProtossRushX: Old ass indie game? Ori and the Will of the Wisps only came out of March 11th of this year. Not really something that I’d call “old” myself. Well no one but Microsoft really know when the console version of Microsoft Flight Simulator is coming so whatever. Still though the way that the PC version is fairing in the reviews is extremely promising.

Why would MS make an exclusive and not put it on xbox? Also, is this game on gamepass for PC? Sucks to be a xbox gamepass subscriber if so.
