News Roundups: Sony: Specs Don't Matter + Ubisoft Defends Double DRM + Arcade Shooters DEAD?

Super Mario Odyssey is setting sales records for Nintendo, meanwhile a Playstation executive says that hardware specs don't matter as much as games. Everyone seems to love the Switch, except for EA -- oh, and we got a surprise TV spot for The Last Jedi during Game 7 of the World Series last night.

    How games look is also not as important as Sony claims. An experience is what's important, and how it looks is part of the equation but it doesn't necessarily make or break a game on its own. Yet, Sony's cash cow (all eggs in one basket bet) has a lot of exclusive experiences. How much that counts depends on the experiences.


    We shall see, but the XB1X has a tough climb. People with an XB1 have less of a reason to go XB1X. People who wanted an XB1 likely have an XB1 already. Again, we shall see. Not all markets make complete sense.


    It should be well-known that EA doesn't know the gaming market (and often seems to not really care).

      Your first point: Thank you. Cuphead, Undertale, and Journey aren't graphically amazing but are some of the best games of the last 5 years. And of course there's Minecraft. Meanwhile most flops look fairly realistic. I didn't care about Andromeda's weird faces because I was having fun. 


      On your second point: The PS4 continuing to sell proves that not everyone has a current gen console.
