Deep Down Delayed So It'll Look Like A Next-Gen Adventure

Deep Down was one of the first games we saw for Sony's PlayStation 4.

It was basically only a tech demo, but we all figured it would arrive sooner rather than later, especially with a beta scheduled for later this month. However, Capcom's free-to-play online title is now officially delayed.

According to what producer Kazunori Sigiura told Dengeki Online (as translated by DualShockers), the developers wanted to make sure gamers recognized Deep Down as "next-gen."

"Since we don't want to risk to be told ‘This could have been done on PS3!' we want to finish a game that fully uses the PS4 hardware specs."

He added that they'll deliver more information after the summer, so yeah, you gotta wait a bit. If the team is going to take full advantage of what the PS4 has to offer, they're going to need more time. It certainly makes more sense to do it right; nobody wants to see a game that looks old, especially after that same title helped introduce a new, more powerful piece of hardware.

For more on the game, check out our recent preview.

That's fine. Better have them do it right than make it average.

They should also take this time to create microtransactions that won't turn people away.

Don't bother me. Although I like the free to play, I imagine eventually I'll feel like I'm being forced to buy something to gain an advantage and that I don't like. So chances are I won't even buy the game.

This it's why I never trust cinematic trailers, I only care about gameplay ones, I knew the game wasn't going to looks that good.

The game looked pretty amazing to begin with. How about making sure the gameplay is done right?

So those gameplay videos on youtube where an actual person with a controller scrolling though menus then moving on to playing the game wasn't actual gameplay?

That link isn't working as intended. Just put deep down gameplay in search.

I checked out the gameplay footage. I was assuming you were referring to the footage shown a long time ago. I stand corrected. I really enjoyed the 18min footage they showed. Definitely impressed with the graphics too.

They must have realized the generic Free to Play gameplay wouldn't be enough to sell it. Maybe they will change things up and make it a real game.

Happens with every console. Not sure why anyone would have believed that there was going to be a game a week like the made it out to be.

The beta was about to come out, and now they're saying more info after the summer!? It sounds like they're completely overhauling something, not just polishing up graphics. But I don't disagree with the decision. I don't mind waiting a bit for a better game.

Off topic: I just heard Charlie Beck, chief of the LAPD, tell a news reporter that due to "the further militarization of police, and this future generations increased obsession with video games" they are revaluating their training efforts. WTF! The LAPD thinks it has to train harder because more people are gaming? Did society learn nothing when they thought rock and roll was corrupting a whole generation?
