Help us go big time on PS4!

Postby Psyonix-Dave on Wed Apr 02, 2014 7:37 pm

In the upcoming weeks I will be making a pitch to Sony to support Rocket League as a title in a much bigger way than we did on PS3. What I mean by that is really getting Sony behind the game with much more exposure for the game on the storefronts and in marketing materials and actually investing in it's future as a top title on the platform. The good news is they have already expressed interest in doing this! However, part of my job is proving our case that this game can be much more than a cult hit.

When I was thinking about how to pitch this I realized that the reason I believe this game can be huge is undoubtedly because of you. If the game didn't have great potential it would have faded out long ago but you guys kept playing...despite the lack of a large audience to match with and even for years after we stopped being able to update it...you kept it going.

So here's what I'd like to do. We may have a small community compared to the big mainstream titles but we have a passionate one. I'd like to include statements from as many of you as possible about what SARPBC/Rocket league means to you and/or why you'd like to see Playstation really promote it on PS4. I've heard a thousand stories since we started: people playing the game with their kids, buying consoles just to play the game, keeping broken consoles just to play the game, making community montages, meeting friends through the game, etc. and that's what I want them to know about, in your own words.

We don't need help getting on PS4, we just want them to support the title when we're on there. It doesn't need to be long so if you just want to write "Please support Rocket League!!!!" that helps too.

To participate please send your statements to PS4PLEASE@psyonix.com and be SURE TO SIGN THEM WITH YOUR PLAYSTATION ACCOUNT NAME!

Thanks so much for help in this!!! Let's make Rocket League HUGE on PS4!!!

I sent in an email, but will you also be promoting the PC version too? I'm going to buy it on both anyway, but just wondering... :cheesygrin: I bet this game is going to be legendary. :yaypsyonix:

Well this is interesting... I think we all believe lack of exposure of the game stunted the growth of the game.

Will of course write an email out soon and hope you get the support from Sony you require.

Listen. Might be a long shot. But if you can make it so that it works with Morpheus then that could really help with this. I see Sony really pushing that when they are about to release it. I mean the view would have to change to inside the car and you just control it the same way. (maybe the roof and everything is see through so you feel like you are inside it but you can still look for the ball)

I heard of some mech game for the oculus that did that. Had you in the cockpit where you could look freely and normal controls.

Maybe this is a dumb idea, but I personally think it would be kinda cool. I could see myself playing it like this majority of the time if done right.

I've shown community montages to a few friends of mine. This is how it went:

* "Guys, I have this game I want you to check out, but I'm not sure if you'll like it. "
-"What is it about?"
*"It's a soccer game."
-"lol nvm"
*"With flying battlecars"
-"I AM SUDDENLY INTERESTED"
This is the point where I show them the video. Then they watch it, acknowledge that it looks fun, but they don't want to spend time learning the game.

Can't wait for Rocket League to be released on console and PC : always said this would make me buy a PS4.

Plus, I'm really interested on how you - Psyonix- will manage to keep a growing community with events, championships, and tournaments.

Keep up the good work and bringing awesome games :D

I'll mail them right away. SARPBC is one of my all time favorite games (and I played a lot!).

Didn't participate in the Rocket-League Alpha....but I'm really excited about the final release on PS4.

THX for the good work!
