Bloodborne Better Hit Big Because PS4 Requires A PR Boost
Yes, I know PlayStation 4 is still beating Xbox One rather soundly throughout the world.
That's not what I'm talking about, though.
Thus far in the new generation, gamers have been talking about the same thing: PS4 exclusives have been found wanting. Sure, there are some great games out there but none have really enraptured critics and gamers. Some, like Killzone: Shadow Fall and The Order: 1886, have been downright bashed by reviewers and consumers alike. This just isn't the PlayStation ecosystem long-time fans know and love.
I'm really not seeing a lot of positive headlines for PS4 right now, aside from the NPD sales updates that arrive every month. I think it's amazing that Sony continues to beat out Microsoft and considering my extreme dislike of M$, I kinda like it. But neither company has really come in strong with exclusive titles this generation and if Microsoft gets the edge in that category...well it'd be a topsy-turvy game world, that's for damn sure. Bloodborne needs to be great, not for sales, but for the general PlayStation 4 reception.
Maybe you guys hadn't noticed but leading up to the PS4, it was a veritable love-fest surrounding Sony. These days, while PS4 keeps selling, everyone seems to find something negative to say about the system. Bloodborne needs to step up, that's all I'm saying.
