Create a stadium is only available on next gen consoles.

SDS

I'm glad I didn't wait for a Ps5 now.

Some thick sexy tasty sauce

SDS

That would signal to me that it's only an offline thing since there is cross platform play, which I am wok with

The impression the trailer gave is that they are going to let us build "Frankenparks," that is, assemble parks from the pieces of other parks that are already in the game.

I'm glad I didn't preorder yet, because this clinches me skipping this year. SDS with the big, foam, middle finger to the long time PS4 players. Get a PS5, or get a second rate product, that costs just as much. The majority of the player base this year will be playing on current gen, not next gen, and you just told us we don't matter.

Objectively false.

Current Gen: $60
Next Gen: $70

SDS

I understand all the disappointment with this next gen only. The reality is, technology moves extremely fast. Eventually limits are reached and its time to move on. Everything has a shelf life.

It will be just like madden I presume. If you have a next gen console I'm pretty sure you can only be matched with other next gen console users as well. Not 100 percent sure but that would be my guess.

SDS

I am pissed, can't get a PS5 the scalpers have them. They don't even care enough to give us a blank staduim.

SDS has already confirmed this isn't the case. Cross play works between both console generations and ecosystems. I hadn't thought about that issue when I first saw the trailer, but I think Eatyum is right.

There are some Twitter accounts that keep track of restocks. I got mine at retail value for $536 after taxes, free 2 day shipping from Sony. Its very much worth following.

This is a big W for those of us who are lucky enough to have snagged a PS5 or XSX/S. Now we can help the Rays or Athletics out of their misery.

SDS

I understand the reasons for making this a next-gen exclusive feature but that still doesn't mean I'm not disappointed. Frame rates would drop randomly when playing at mlb stadiums on ps4 so I can only imagine what they would be like with even more complicated stadiums. I was excited for this update when it leaked but I'm not willing to upgrade quite yet. I was hoping for some offline version on ps4 at least but I'm excited to see the stadiums some people make and post. Still a net step forward that they're trying new ideas.

I think the point is the majority of the users will be on ps4. Not ps5 or the new Xbox. So the game should be more tailored to the majority

It’s even worse because Sony (the company responsible for the lack of PS5’s) is SDS parent company.

I get it. But I am thinking the non next gen systems are at the end of their electronic life cycle and most likely and do not fit the requirements for implementation of stadium creation.

And that’s just it. It’s most likely a hardware thing that doesn’t allow them to put this feature on the last gen consoles

Why must everyone play the victim? Why must it be some massive SDS conspiracy against PS4 users instead of what it is most likely, simply a case of the PS4 not having the horsepower (either processing or the SSD drive) to run it .

There are still millions upon millions of more PS4 and Xbox users than Ps5 and Series X users. The last gen consoles are not being abandoned yet.

I agree it’ll probably be “Frankenparks,”. I think it stems from the inherit problem with Create a Stadium for a baseball game. Baseball stadiums are fantastic for their individuality and taking the surrounding areas into the configuration and views. Hopefully any piece by piece build configuration has a selection of none real stadium features to make it individually. Because of this, I’m more convinced the only way expansion will really be appreciated, if their are some pre built stadiums for teams. Portland would have dome or retractable roof stadiums. Nashville would have stadiums on a river. And then the piece by piece will have surrounding areas dictate the stadium build. Will it be in the suburbs in a parking lot? Or in a city? Downtown or River?

SDS

I'm dissapointed, if the next gen consoles weren't impossable to get I'd wouldn't be as upset as I am, I've been waiting for create a staduim for 15 years and they do this.

If they didn't have a plan to stop the scalpers during the pandemic they should have waited.

I'll still buy it and hope Sony has a plan to get a PS5 to me by fall.

Not true obviously create a stadium couldn't get added to ps4 cause it was already maxed out!! This yrs CAS will be bare bone anyway, no fully customizable stadiums!! So it's really not a big deal this yr. Fully customizable stadiums will probably be a few yrs down the line
