Why would a game that I have zero interest in ever playing not be trash / a waste of time for me? I don't work at Sony I don't care about what is best for them, I care about what is best for me and that is getting good games.
Yeah, many people here forget that they are the customers and they are entitled to demand

Not all GaaS games are trash but all these GaaS games revolving around microtransactions and skins are trash.

But GAAS games have MTX since.... Stone age. And there are very good ones. Look at the World Of Tanks. Bunch of MTX, but surely not trash game

Do I look like I'm going to look up Wolrd of Tanks and pick it up to play?

I have ZERO interest in playing any of these games that are shaped by MTX, the games I actually liked that didn't use to have this stuff were ruined by it (WoW, TF2, CS, Dota2, Battlefield).

Nope. But you've said this :

Mentioned WOT just an example. WOT is far from trash despite MTX. MTX aren't mandatory

To you maybe, why are you trying to convince me that I should go play games ridden with MTX? No, those games are trash and I don't want to waste any time with them.

It is not to me. WOT is absolutely awesome GAAS game. Literally no question about it.

I'm not trying to convince you to play these games, you literally don't need too. But trying to point constantly out your ILLOGICAL statement that these games are trash because it is not for you. That's damn ILLOGICAL to say. Like i've mentioned above " racing games aren't my cup of tea, so, racing games are trash. PURE TRASH." :/ or "i don't like Mortal Kombat ( which has a bunch of MTX) nor Fighting games, fighting games are traaaaaash!" :/ See how is this ILLOGICAL to say. And i've said, MTX isn't mandatory. You can play games without spending a single cent on MTX. So, do you like fighting games?

Maybe you don't think racing games are trash but I do think games ridden with MTX are TRASH.

You are wrong to assume my problem with MTX is that it requires me to spend money, my problem is how the fact that a game revolves around MTX completely change it's design, Dota2 was completely ruined by cosmetics and the constants changes designed to get more money out of the game and keep it going forever.

With the news we are getting now Hermen's plan is clear: he wants to turn PlayStation into Xbox and it's happening fast.

We have a guy that always dreamed of creating a Bungie game allowing Bungie to call the shots for PlayStation (some of the least trustworthy people in the industry) while they make games for Xbox.

What’s happening now is the result of that 2019 coup within SIE

Yep looks like it. Seems like the guys that envisioned PlayStation as a GaaS/PC/Service/e-Sports centered brand won over the guys that believed that they should double down on what they were good at.

They deserve whatever is coming their way. Gabe is ready to eat their launch and will be able to navigate this new environment better than any of the console manufactures.

So Sony literally wasted 3.6 billion to keep Bungie games multiplat. Meanwhile Zenimax/Bethesda is going to be Xbox exclusive.

This game was in development before the aqusition tho. And Sony wants the games multiplatform i don't see how this is a waste if they'll be getting money from every platform. Bethesda games being exclusive will hurt them more than it will Playstation.
