There's so much to talk about No Man's Sky. Unfortunately, most of these would be about how bad the title is (or it has become). Want to know how negative that remark is? Well, it's the fact that sport titles are now a better product than Hello Games' title. To prove this claim, Sony has released a brand new chart for the most downloaded games in PS4. (Nope, NMS isn't part of it -- like at all).
As per Sony's list, no shadow of No Man's Sky can be seen. I'll save you a few click and scroll, here: CTRL F and enter No Man's Sky = NOTHING. The first three titles in the said list are NBA 2K17, FIFA 17 and Madden NFL 17 -- all of which are sport simulation games. And oh, NHL 17 (fourth spot) made it, too.
If you look closely, the other non-sport titles that made it to the list are Naughty Dog's The Last Of Us (remastered version), EA's Battlefield Hardline, Activision's Destiny, Psyonix's Rocket League, Blizzard's Overwatch (Origins Edition) and Telltale Games' Minecraft (PS4 edition). This if we are to limit the list to the top 10.
It's worth noting that No Man's Sky became a chart-topper back in August. However, ever since that day, it hit the rock bottom so hard that it made Sean and the Hello Games team disappear into thin air. Because seriously, these guys -- unlike before -- have been very silent.
One of the latest milestone No Man's Sky has reached is earning the reputation as an "Overwhelmingly Negative" title in Steam reviews. Sure, let's say the studio won't abandon NMS (though they seem to be starting doing that); however, it's safe to say that they'll be having a hard time winning the community's trust back. And with their continuous silence, it's not doing them any good.
As of this writing, No Man's Sky is under investigation for false advertisements. The video game has caught the eye of the advertising watchdog ASA (Advertising Standards Authority) following a series of complaints from the players. Many suggest that Hello Games lied in their advertising shenanigans, displaying features and whatnots that didn't arrive to the game.
Right now, the future of No Man's Sky is really murky. Nonetheless, Hello Games is slated to drop a huge update for the game. Probably, Murray's silence indicates that he's guilty. Or maybe, just maybe, they simply want to veer away from criticisms. Because really, if you have nothing good to say, it's better to keep your mouth shut. Cheers, Nomanauts!
