@yoshi Because it is a very apt analog in the discussion surrounding game subscription services and their future in the medium of gaming?
Kinda helps if you read.

RE: That's News!
Who said Mulan wasn't a success? Everything I've seen regarding it's numbers shows aces.
Also, I think Microsoft is going to adopt a similar model to Mulan on Disney+ going forward.
I've always wondered how sustainable GamePass was for Microsoft, but when you look at their release schedules it starts to make sense. Microsoft generally release 2-3 AAA games a year, with the rest of their catalogue consisting of mostly smaller titles. Now that they've bought Beth and have a huge catalogue of prestigious franchises to draw from, I don't think the traditional model will work for them going forward.
I would not be surprised at all of something like ES6 or FO5 has a 30 buckerino pricetag on top of the GamePass sub which will score you the game before regular subscribers.
I personally hate all of these game subscriptions and think they will be the death of game ownership, bit I won't be surprised if something like that happens in the near future with MS.
RE: The PS5 News and Info Thread
@e_zed_eh_intern Everything the Series X can play the Series S will play, just at half the resolution and probably not as smoothly.
When you play One games, they will play the S versions of those games. They will run smoother than they would on a One S because the system will just have a lot more overhead to work with, but they will run at 900p unless patched to run at the system's max resolution of 1440p.

@themarcv They've sold off a lot of assets and done some major restructuring.
Made a few misguided investments. Their phones are incredible but they've dialed back production so much that I can't get one where I live without ordering internationally and paying upfront, as they've deemed the Canadian market as "not important".
They've been quietly dominating the tech sector over the past few years, namely in the camera and wireless audio departments. Their earbuds are top of the line, and they've got the only point and shoot dedicated camera anybody should really care about at this point.
They've lost that household name brand recognition they used to have, but they're still doing quite healthy as a company.
Protip: Sony has a life insurance sector that is actually one of their bigger money makers for the company after Playstation.
RE: The EZA Forums Top 50 Games of the 2010s!
Bloodborne is just such a perfect storm for me. I was already in love with Dark Souls, and here comes Dark Souls: Lovecraft Edition.
It was absolutely horrifying and surreal and I loved every single second of it.
Breath of the Wild is a game I have absolutely no desire to play whatsoever. Zelda games completely lost their appeal to me with the absolute travesty of a game that was Skyward Sword. Don't care.
Oh yeah so here was my list.
God of War
Max Payne 3
Dead Space 2
Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
Horizon Zero Dawn
Final Fantasy XIV
Mass Effect 2
Uncharted The Lost Legacy
Deus Ex Human Revolution
Spec Ops The Line
Mario Kart 8
