@JJ2 There will always be comparisons. But I do think a game like Death Stranding would look better as a PS5 launch title than a PS4 swan song.
Of course, if it turns out that PS5 is just a PS4 New Pro, meaning it plays all PS4 games but also plays PS5 games, like New 3DS, then people won’t have to buy whatever is released on PS5. , they can just keep playing PS4 games in 4k enhanced or whatever the PS5 does to them.
But there’s always an added excitement with a new console launch – Ninteod was selling games like 1 2 Switch and Snipperclips along with Zelda, neither of which would sell very well now – and I think that excitement would help Death Stranding more than any other. Uncharted, Tomb Raider or God of War, which would sell themselves.
And I didn’t mean to criticize Spiderman, just that maybe last year or next year he could have received a few more awards, without having to go up against GoW and RDR2. The first year of a new console is usually a bit sterile – Switch changed that with the Wii U games being held back, and that would benefit the DS more than other well-known games. New IPs are always a hard sell, hence GoW, RDR2, and all the other endless sequels to Uncharted, Tomb Raider, AC, etc.
