Two new dates to toss around for PlayStation 4 discussion:
One is the freshly announced launch date for the highly anticipated No Man's Sky (June 21 in North America) and the other is for the PS4 exclusive Uncharted 4: A Thief's End ; it's now coming on May 10 after a brief two-week delay.
The big question is, which of these games is more likely to disappoint the community? One might assume it's No Man's Sky for a number of reasons; i.e., it's a brand new IP, there is some question as to whether or not it will feel like a full $60 production, and there's still a bit of mystery surrounding the actual goal of playing. Then again, it's a hugely ambitious project and it could end up being downright revolutionary. The amount of promise that game has is absolutely mind-boggling…there are just a few pitfalls to negotiate.
On the flip side, while Uncharted is a beloved and acclaimed series, this latest – and last, for Drake – entry has been rousing suspicions. There have been several delays, for example, and the story really needed to be completely rewritten after Amy Hennig and Justin Richmond left. On top of which, let's not forget that developer Naughty Dog has opened things up a bit with this new installment, so the gameplay and scope might be a little different. Besides, the expectations are so crazy high for this game, it almost has to be the best thing since sliced bread not to disappoint.
We could just be optimistic and say that both titles will be Game of the Year contenders in 2016 but optimism doesn't always fly on the Internet. 😉
