I really think it's about time Sony purchased Quantic Dream. There's obviously quite an audience for their games on PlayStation. Heavy Rain did over 3 million. This, so far has over 1.5 million. Should definitely do over 2 million on PS3, considering it's now available digitally aswell. Plus, the very probable scenario of a PS4 version.

This is has really surprisingly good legs, considering the critical reception, sure it's at half the initial price now, but I thought it will drop like a rock considering 70 meta and next gen launch. Great, and I'm yet to buy it myself.

@ dirtylemons , I agree 100%, and it is a shame that QQ dream is such a easy target for trolling, because they really are talented and Beyond was indeed, to those who played start to finish, an amazing unforgetable game. But, it is a point and click kind of game in some ways, like Back to the Future and Walking Dead, but it a genre, not a flaw, not every game has to be a FPS.

dirtylemons posted 20/11/2013, 07:46
No, it's a false argument to say that 'Beyond' puts players in the role of "cutscene activator" and nothing more. Technically, percentage-wise, there is less non-interactivity in this game than in most games. Because players control most of what is going on. There are only relatively few moments where control is taken away from the player.
As for challenge, David Cage has never shied away from his desire to have a story told to the player. He just wants players to have some control on the direction the story takes. Showing players a 'Game Over' screen and making them do exactly what the developer says over and over again until they get it right isn't really a challenge. In fact, it's simply more linear than a Quantic Dream game.

AngryAztec posted 19/11/2013, 02:21
The problem with this game is that it reduces the player to be a cutscene activator. The game will only continue as long as the player can perform incredibly easy tasks to move to the next batch of cutscenes. And so on and so on. Not to mention the lack of challenge and that the game fails to punish you for doing something wrong or nothing at all. It reminded me of those "games" you find on DVD's where you have to select between a few options just to see a scene from the movie. Not very exciting. Some people might like this, but most PS3 users (79 million strong) didn't.

It could have been a solid game if it had a better story and your decisions had more impact.

I can't think of any other title that had you make decisions throughout the entire game yet they have so little significance. It appears to me David Cage knew the story he wanted to tell and didn't want players decisions to change it.

This game like all those before it, is all about the fuss made around it anyway.
Mr Puggsly gave his opinion, you don't like it, fine. Just stop with the fuss now, for real.

And don't count on me to start another pointless back and forth...

Anyway, to the game, just completed it last night! While it didn't quite have the same impact on me that Heavy Rain did, the ending was better and it was a more polished experience, overall. Beyond could use some control revamping, but other than that, solid game!

Once again, you're playing stupid. Had you ignored my original comment or said that's just my opinion, we wouldn't be talking. Instead, you went on the attack and we had a great discussion.

You accused me of disliking this Beyond solely because its a Sony product. But that's not the case, there is many other valid reasons to dislike this... "game."

It takes no effort to respond to your comments. That's why I am still here.

Awww... well I'm sorry if I hurt your feelings. But I stand by what I said.

I haven't played EVERY Xbox exclusive. But there are some MS published games I played a little and consider bad like Too Human, Shadowrun, Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom, and Kinect Joyride.

If you didn't take my opinion seriously you would have ignored my original comment. However, if I said this game was great you would want to make love to me. I know how your Sony loving brain works.

Saying you're playing stupid is not an insult. But one would have to be stupid to not see the similarities between Walking Dead and Beyond. They are two games that can be compared".

Thus, you're implications are that I am stupid for saying what I initially said. You just can't help yourself, but in regards to Sony games, I feel I am spot on. Show me anywhere on the site where you've called an Xbox game "garbage" and I might think different. It doesn't matter the genre/IP/dev. This is how/who you are.

Thus, it's hard to take anything you say about any of their games seriously when those variables exist. But, by all means, continue to defend yourself. It's becoming a spectacle now. And, now that we know your feelings about the game, you have no need to remain here, either. ;)

Seems you're having the issue "dealing with it", since you continue to find a need to defend yourself. :P

As for "playing stupid", it's pretty typical of you to sling insults when you're backed into a corner. Thus, I know what I said made perfect sense, and have played all of the games I mentioned.

There are PS games I enjoy, there are games I didn't enjoy, and there are games I have no real opinion on. Simple as that and deal with it.

Maybe a week or two ago, I was listening IGN's Playstation podcast and they were comparing Beyond and Walking Dead. Why? Because they fall into a similar gameplay genre. Now quit playing stupid, its fair to compare the two.

Yes, you only crap on the PS games of this type (you're often negative towards them, anyway - let's be frank), but that's known and not needed to be referred to again.

As for The Walking Dead, a tad exaggerated, yes, but it's still different enough to where I wouldn't compare it to that before comparing it to Heavy Rain or Fahrenheit. Much more like those.

Mr Puggsly posted 07/11/2013, 11:10
Yeah... yeah... I think Beyond: Two Souls is a crap because its a Playstation game. Lets just ignore the gameplay is crap and the story is bad. You are under the illusion I play Playstation games just to shit on them, because that's what I enjoy doing with my time.

The critics I respect weren't crazy about this game, but I played it regardless because it seemed interesting. My mistake, I wasn't expecting such a god awful story that my decisions have practically no impact in.

Explain how Walking Dead is "NOTHING" like Beyond. Two story driven games where your decisions affect the story (more so in Walking Dead). You do some exploring, some puzzles, and many QTEs in both. The only thing that really separates them is one had a garbage story and the other was GOTY.

@CGI-Quality - Yes, I completed this game, it was in the Redbox. But I could have watched it on YouTube and felt just as satisfied.

I'm not opposed to this genre, I just don't think Beyond was good and many critics agree. To the contrary, I very much enjoyed The Walking Dead.

@WagnerPaiva - I agree, its nice play something different on occasion. But I simply didn't enjoy this game. You're lead to believe your actions mold the story and that just wasn't the case.

Shortly after completing this, I finally played through The Walking Dead. That was a much more satisfying experience. A game that actually makes me feel like my decisions matter and a more compelling story.

Amazing second week, almost half a million so far, it will break 1 million or even 1.5 in the long run, I am sure.
@Mr Puggsly , I disagree, sure, it defies genre, but I love to play crazy games like this once in a while, these day all we get are open world shooters and FPSs, all the same all the time. I loved my time with Beyond, shed some tears even, a really amazing and unique game.

At ~300K Beyond: Two Souls 1st week is ~240K less than Heavy Rain's ~540K (not including Japan) despite releasing on a much larger install base and coming off the big success of Heavy Rain.

Not great really and this games sales will drop a lot faster due to the poor word of mouth, mediocre reviews and all the people who, like me, just watched a play-through on Youtube... not to mention next generation consoles arrival next month.

It will probably pass 1m lifetime, can't see it passing 1.5m though. At a production cost of $27m (probably ~$35m including marketing) I doubt it'll make much or any profit since it's already had £10 knocked off the price after just over a week.

Definitely a respectable first week for this type of game, even if somewhat underwhelming compared to 'Heavy Rain.' I hope it sells consistently well, because this title should not be missed by any who have previously enjoyed a Quantic Dream title.

It's a bit too soon to say flop, but it is up against some stuff competition with new consoles and GTAV right now. It is interesting to see the current sales though. 2.5 million sales for Heavy Rain would argue that Beyond Two Souls should've had more units moved.
