Bloodborne thread (formerly Project Beast)

So it's confirmed, From Software is coming out with a new game in the same vein as the Souls series. Like a 95% chance it will be PS4 exclusive. Most likely going to be some kind of new Souls series or Demon's Souls 2, but some people are theorizing that it might be a Shadow Tower 2, but I think that's unlikely.

And here is some gameplay footage, showing off a double barreled shotgun, some kind of Monster Hunter style switch axe looking weapon, and a very gothic looking setting with a bit of a Victorian horror vibe going on.

Thoughts everyone?

Yeah, some shameless self-promotion. I started a Youtube channel, I play games sometimes. Check it out if you want, it's under the name Ecko Explores Gaming
Oh, also a Twitter thing it you wanna take a look. Same name as my YT channel, or @EckoExplores, whichever works best.

I'm pretty sure this is going to be another Souls title, otherwise it just comes off as a clone. I really hope it's not a PS4 exclusive if it is a Souls title - if it's on PS3, I buy it, if not, I don't.

Hate to say it man but I want this to be PS4 exclusive. I don't even have one and I want that to happen. This would be a console seller for me.

That and I'd really like to see the entire medium get off their feet and honestly move into the next generation. It's time... it's been time.

I think it would be a stupid move on From's part to release it as a PS4 exclusive, and there's no way I'm buying the Indiestation 4 for one game. How many copies of this game do they expect to sell when the Souls fanbase mostly exists on the PS3? With the high cost of development, I don't see how it makes sense. Of course, if Sony is demanding next-gen exclusivity as a condition for release, I'm probably up shit creek.

Looks nice. But yeah, if it's not on Vita or PS3 I will ignore it. Still not a reason to drop $400 on a new system.

You guys realize it's going to come out next year most likely if that right? No point in From continuing to support a system that's on the way out the door especially since this is going to move systems. I hope it's a Sony exclusive with a PC release maybe if not I'll get a ps4 used or after a price drop just like I did with the ps3 and Demon's souls.

I don't get the negativity about it not being on ps3. It's like complaining about having to buy a Wii U because they didn't release mk8 for the Wii. Do you guys not like video games? I mean in a years time there will be more games worth picking up a ps4 for this included.

Edit: bone I'm curious, besides a new why's game, what would get you to buy one of the new systems? Floppy disks?

PS3 is not "on its way out the door" by any means - Sony has already stated it will continue to support the console well into 2016, which is a smart business decision considering the very large installed fanbase. It has nothing to do with "not liking video games" and everything to do with not having to buy a completely new console when the game will undoubtedly run quite well on a PS3. Regardless, I'm out if it's exclusive.

DS2 was dated out the door. I could careless about those sort of things, but no denying they could do way more on a new system (like the early DS2 videos showed, an art direction and lighting closer to DS1 in style). "Next gen Souls" sounds a lot more exciting than "Another new Souls" to me. The Souls series has proven to be very successful and I think even locked on exclusive to some system, it'll sell like hotcakes. If there were a Souls game on the PS2, would have you waited to get a PS3 for Demon's?

Weirdest argument ever. I'm with flex on this one. lol

The Souls games have never been about graphics, but that's beside the point. Time will tell, but I'm still putting my money on a multi-gen release.

That just depends on if From sticks with Bamco or not. Honestly I just want them to go back to Atlus and get as far as possible from Bamco but that's because I blame Bamco for all the stuff I disliked about both dark souls games.
