>tfw if nis dies nisa will still live
This. whoever is in charge put all their eggs in one basket, when it come to what console you release your games on and what IP you decide to work on.
NIS did it to themselves.
I genuinely do not understand why NIS keeps their titles exclusive to Sony platforms. Why not also release it on Wii-U or XBone? Or hell, PC? If you guys are hurting for income so badly, why make it only possible to purchase this game on one single platform, with which fans of your older titles are hardly willing to purchase simply for a single title?
>in operation profits
All this means is that they lost a few hundred thousand Burgerbux in usual profits, not that the company lost a few million altogether. They still are striking good profits and can continue along as such.
Because their fanbase sits on playstation plattforms
Source says they did losses because they had fewer titles released this year compared to last year
Also they lost money for other stuff not especially about gaming
Did also had an Increase in online sales
OP is just talking shit
One kind of game that would make a lot of sense on a WiiU gamepad is probably a NIS game.
It's too bad. But I know think Nintendo would even promote them. Nintendo doesn't even promote it's own published games.
THATS WHAT THEY GET FOR NOT RELEASING SOUL NOMAD 2 DAMMIT NIS WHY YOU DO THIS TO ME?
They sold alot of copies outside japan and had an increase in online sales
Since D5 is the only game available online they actually had a better result thanks to the new gen console
Just like there wouldn't be a PS4.
Try harder, SONY ALWAYS WINS BABY.
btw, enjoy mugen souls :^)
PS4 has the best sales? Its the dudebro machine.
PS4 gets a new Jap game announced? It was always the weeb machine.
PS4 doesn't have games? Its the Bloodborne machine.
PS4 has lots of multiplats? Its the thirdparty machine.
Fucking be consistent with your shitposting you fucks.
I have a PS, but if they ported the whole series to steam they would get:
>tons of money from weaboos
>tons of money from weaboos
>tons of money from weaboos
>tons of money from weaboos
>some money from non-weaboos
what's there to loose?
Fighting game made by ASW/FrenchBread/EXAMU with several Nippon Ichi whores when?
This, and this thread is just intended for console wars and shitposting. This shit is also old news.
Stop trying to stir shit up, faggot OP. At first glance from the thumbnail, I expected a comfy grindan game thread
>I would be glad if they were exclusive since they would pour more money into it like NIS and get support from sony japan
Except NIS is dying from being Sony exclusive, you dolt.
Sony isn't pouring jack shit on those studios. They only give money to studios like Activision and SE for exclusive content. Smaller ones just gets shat on with gridlocking clauses.
I think sooner or later this steam bubble is going to pop pretty hard on japanese developer's faces, as more burned out console players stop buying full priced games to wait for steam sales or simply pirate them.
There's a reason why these companies block their steam catalogs to the japs and they started to circunvent that already.
>Play Station Exclusive
>A franchise that's jumped around between Nintendo and Sony since it was made
>Another series that's been on as many systems as there are main line games.

>m-muh 30 million sales!
More proof that people bought a PS4 just to play FIFA and CoD.
PS4 confirmed for dudebro machine.
Weebs really shot themselves in the foot when buying from Sony this gen.
It's selling because it's new and Neptunia has become a meme since it was released on Steam. Fucking Goat Simulator was the top sellr on Steam, it's not about quality it's about how much you can get your games shilled because that's what influences the steam audience.
You haven't even started senpai.
No, it's not ''PCfags'' or ''Sonyfags'' or ''Nintendofags'', it's every single downsy retard that identifies themselves with [insert device/company here], feels the need to actively shitpost about it, and attacks other retards as though they actually have a stake in how popular or rich those companies get besides being obedient consumers.
The DS port had playable Plenair though.
You still lost tales of zestiria as an exclusive. It doesn't matter where the franchise started, Zestiria was an exclusive game to a sony console and no longer is. Let me spell it out for you once again
Zestiria is no longer exclusive which means you lost a fucking tales game as an exclusive. no matter how retarded you are, you still lost an exclusive.
So how long until the entire Disgaea franchise is ported to the PC?
Tales of Zestiria was PS exclusive. It's no longer PS exclusive. Sony lost a tales game as an exclusive. Tales of Zestiria is now multiplat. No matter how much mental gymnastics you try to pull of sony lost a Tales exclusive. Sony also lost a Senran exclusive. Sony is losing exclusives which was my original statement.
Times are changing, people say
I don't buy it
In a corner of my heart
It's only getting darker
Day after day I roam
Searching for what? I have forgotten
But my journey is taking me far, so far from you
I'm moving on, moving so far away
There's an anger deep down inside me
I'm moving on, I am saying goodbye
Skies are grey, I am alone now
I will spend my whole life missing you
OK, by that logic then I guess graces f and Xillias are exclusive.
OH wait, no, let me do it for you; graces doesn't count because its a port.
Xillias don't count because they're shit.
Just like Tales of Hearts was Nintendo exclusive until Bamco released it on the Vita, just to give you one example.
If you were actually interested in this franchise you'd know this is hardly an issue, but no, you're just a retard more interested in shitposting against le sonygger strawmen.
>Sony lost a tales game as an exclusive
Holy shit, they must be in deep shit right now.
A fucking tales game.
Call me crazy but I'd say those are two completely different games.
>making laharl and friends DLC only, with limited voice acting
Pretty much. You played Disgaea 1/original La Pucelle, you played them all really. All subsequent games and spin-offs have been the same fucking graphics, references, jokes, stereotypes, archetypes, and everything but with 2-3 mechanic differences. Not enough to even warrant their own game.
It's Disgaea 1 with a shitload of expansions.
>with 2-3 mechanic differences. Not enough to even warrant their own game.
where the heck did you get that pasta? Neogaf? I don't know many places that would post so many uneducated acid like that without being banned on sight for pure shitposting.
>Game is PS4 exclusive
"Lel it will sell like shit and get ported to PC in a week dont bother buying it."
>Game is on PS4 and PC
"HA SUCK IT SONYKEKS ON SUICIDE WATCH PS4 IS LITERALLY DEAD"
>Game is on PS4 and PS3/Vita
"Why the fuck would anyone ever buy the PS4 version."
No. The jump to 4 was shocking because of the massive graphical overhaul. And since then, they have sharpened their UI, made levels more aesthetically pleasing, and the 2d and 3d visuals have far more work put into them than the game before them.
>but with 2-3 mechanic differences.
Each game introduces a bevy of features. I really don't know what you think a sequel is, but adding to a pre-existing formula is how a sequel works. Otherwise it's something known as a "Spinoff".
They should have done the same thing as Compile heart and went PC.
Fact is most original disgaia fans probably dont have a reason to buy a PS4 other than D5 and i am guessing the only reason why the game didn't come out on the ps3 is the ps3s miserable ram.
Of which even toasters have at lest 4 gb of.
>Massive graphical overhaul
Oh wow, sharper sprites and more wham bam zoom effects when you do special attacks. No offense but only fans might notice this shit.
>bevy of features
Other games do much more than have the same everything. Point out these features then, but from my experience of playing the games these "new features" aren't enough to differentiate. The games all feel fucking same-y not just from a gameplay perspective but the characters and what NISA thinks passes for humour.
>, but there's a different piece of shit hamfisted mechanic
I have no reason to prove an idiot wrong when all he does is spreading shit in his own face like that. You are a sad buffon, nobody is enjoying your show.
>"Why the fuck would anyone ever buy the PS4 version."
Nobody says this.
They ask why you would buy a console just for the PS4 version.
In a faced paced FPS where performance matters then the platform is importance, but this is a turn based strategy.
Well done. If you can't actually back it up, then shut your whore mouth.
>Grandia 1-tier 3D background
>Other games do much more than have the same everything. Point out these features
wait, you pretend to be an expert but just admit to not having played the games? How are you going to give weight to what is, so far, just blank, vague opinions?
>Slightly sharper detail sprites
>Grandia 2-tier 3D backgrounds
You call this a massive graphical overhaul? I'm nowhere near being a grafixwhore but I'm compelled to point out bullshit when I hear it. This shit would probably run at 60 FPS as a PS2 launch title.
>back it up
back up what? All you do is saying "this is shit, and this is shit too". You are the one in grave need of proving your argument there. But you won't, you are there to impress your mom by saying "it's shit" as loud as you can.
Why does everyone assume that every single game on PC gets moded?
I wish the mod community was that active, but the fact is that they don't give a fuck for anything that isn't AAA flavor of the month stuff.
>Oh wow, sharper sprites and more wham bam zoom effects when you do special attacks.
Which is itself a graphical overhaul. What the fuck do you honestly expect?
>No offense but only fans might notice this shit.
No shit, because fans are the ones who buy the games.
>Other games do much more than have the same everything.
Such as? And please give examples of games that improved from apparent radical changes versus simply being gutted.
>Point out these features then
D4 had multi-magichange which permits you to make Giant Monsters, Giant Monster Weapons, and dual wield Giant Monster Weapons, Tower Attacks where you can move the tower as well as grabbing targets with it, Online pirate mode, map creation, home base creation, and capturing enemies which now gives you items, money, and the captured enemies as well.
>The games all feel fucking same-y
Because you probably don't really play them.
>not just from a gameplay perspective but the characters and what NISA thinks passes for humour.
So what does this have to do with the actual games? Past the story, there's much more to do. In fact, past the story is when people actually enjoy the games.
I think people in the Disgaea fanbase would put in the effort to mod a PC version. But as anon said the DLC would suffer a bit. Not everyone is interested in most of the shit NIS offers as DLC for these games.
They won't, the fucking nips wont even dare give us what we want, their shitty pride wont let them.
>games in a series have extremely similar gameplay.
Going from 1 to 2, they added in additional item world changes (making the item world less bullshit in it's random placements and such) added the fellony and dark court systems, an additional way to allow for the passage of bills.
Disgaea 3 did away with fellonies and the Dark Court, and instead introduced Magichange, allowing monsters to turn into weapons for use by the humanoid characters, and added that monsters could act as a bounce place for thrown enemies, letting them bounce of of them and continue along through the throw. Disgaea 3 also intorduced Evilities, skills that characters would have and would allow them to change how their stats worked for attack or defense, allow them to buff or debuff characters around them or themselves, or across the whole map. It also changed how mana was spent, skills ranked up and made more powerful.
Disgaea 4 introduces the fusing mechanic , allowing frnedly monsters to be fused together to make larger more powerful characters, along with revamping the capture mechanic, allowing you to do more things with captured enemy units. It also allowed you, for the first time, to rearrange your hub world to however you liked, and could allow for special abilities to be unlocked this way.
Disgaea 2 has the fewest changes, while the changes made in 3 and 4 drastically altered how you could play the game, and have been carried forward into D2 and Disgaea 5
>hurr durr i didnt read the NISA burrhurt threads
>hurr wut is pride about a game you made for a console
You seriously gotta unfuck yourself, its like you like posting without reading the thread.
wouldnt surprise me if you're from reddit either you fucking cocksucker.
>It's only getting darker
Man, when she sings that line it sounds janky as fuck. Must be a combination of the Engrishu~ and her voice breaking.
>Item world changes
>Felony and Dark Court system
Pointless grind, gone as soon as it came.
A neat idea, but intentionally crippled without a specific setup.
>Monster's having a throw stat
A small change, still haven't really challenged the idea that the series gameplay is extremely similar.
I personally don't think that's a bad thing, dunno about the guy you originally responded to.
Wow, its magichange but worse.
Can't censor things and stay in business.
Why you would censor weeb shit is beyond me anyways. I hope those fuckers enjoy sleeping on park benches for being stupid enough to pander to sjw.
>A neat idea, but intentionally crippled without a specific setup.
So set it up right? What the fuck is stopping you from using a good monster to make a good character better?
>Wow, its magichange but worse.
>Leveling five characters at once and combining five pools of stats into one body is "worse"
Do you, or have you, ever played Disgaea?
I don't have a PS4 (yet) but my biggest gripe is how flimsy the DLC is for these games. Oh boy a few new missions and fan favorite characters who add nothing to the main game play. I'd love that for every character DLC there is a mission that comes with them in order to get them or give them something special. One of the best parts of getting extra characters in the older games was you had to earn them. Give me a bang for my buck.
What NIS did is try to fuck over their employees by using loophole in a contract to pay them intern salaries instead of proper ones.
To their surprise, half of the team left for Idea Factory.
Nips no longer trust the company to produce good shit. D5 is the last disgaea to have Harada's artstyle.
I think they'll live. D5 seems to be a visual upgrade overall despite the crew leaving.
It surprised me actually. Now the problem is getting rid of the residual distrust in NIS because of how they supposedly treated employees. I guess this is what happens if you don't treat your employees like how Konami does. Your image suffers more in the eyes of the locals.
I hear D5 was the last project for many of them. Plus the people who left were working on it too before leaving.
The next project will show if they sink or swim, but the DLC is getting more and more ridiculous as the series go on.
>D5 is the last disgaea to have Harada's artstyle.
I know who could replace him
>They could have playable Cornet
Why do you have to remind me, anon
Why are you so mean
Why did princess antiphone have to bomb and why we never got its D2 DLC, her skills looked awesome
but Harada didn't leave NIS, new dungeon crawling with him is in the making
>why D2 and D5 have bombed
D5 seems to be doing fine? It's only in Japan that it bombed because the series has weaker sales there and the game released at the same time as Bloodborne.
DD2 sold out all LE, dunno how it did in the end in the west. But the crash bug probably affected sales a lot.
>You will never buy provocative photos from a talking frog
Do you seriously believe that? It's Sony we're talking about.
This piece of shit corporation is capable of anything.
>Do you seriously believe that?
Yes? Disgaea has been on non-sony systems you dumbfuck.
