I was really let down at first. I ordered a copy of this game with my PS4 because at first they said it was going to be available with the launch of the console. When I found out it wasn't, I removed my order. Now, I am eagerly awaiting this game after all I have been reading on it. I personally think that it's a good idea to have this game in letterbox format. It should give it a cinematic feel while playing. Also I'm glad it's single player with no MP or Co-op. By not worrying about mp or co-op, they can dedicate all resources to making this a great looking and playing game! Once again can't wait, but if I have to wait for a good quality game, I will.
Who the heck told you it was a launch title? I remember they said pretty quickly that it was not releasing until 2014, and little else after that.
Oh man I don't keep up with gaming news. I just checked the black bar thing and got disappointed as well. I was super excited for this game now I don't know because I never played a game with bars before. Really unexpected.
Yeah, I remember when they introduced the bars on VHS movies back in the '80s. It was weird and made it a little hard to see things on my Mom's or Dad's TV (27 inch's) that was maybe 1/4 the size of the one in my living room. Since I started playing my console multiplayer online some 10 years ago, I find it hard to play 4 person split screen even though each screen is the same size as the TV's I (we old timers) used to play on.
Anyway, I personally don't think the letter box is such a big deal since most peoples HDTV's are a decent size, and those with smaller ones will more than likely be sitting closer. Funny thing about watching letter box movies back in the day, is that after maybe half an hour, I didn't even notice it. I was able to play Resident Evil 5 coop with my sons through the 4 difficulty settings, so I'm sure this won't be that bad.
Here's how RE5 did split screen to keep the aspect ratio you would have in Single Player.
Thanks for the write up da1writer. I'll have to actually read it when I have a minute. Looking forward to having some days off so I can catch up on my games and play some of these new ones coming out later this year.
I read that Playstation and Ready at Dawn will release a new trailer for the upcoming Playstation 4 game The Order 1886 which to me looks very interesting and I can not wait to learn more of the title. Are any of you intrigued by this new IP? Leave your comments below.
