The Lilo-log #73: Is Single Player Dying on Console? Presented by Saljack Enterprises. Gaming. Animation. Media. Entertainment. Woman Owned. Short Films. Animated Movies. Kids Cartoons. Game Development.

In this video, Lilo discusses Is Single Player Dying on Console?

Lilo believes that single player games are dying. Specifically single player games for Xbox and PlayStation. Many AAA developers have said their focus is now games as a service. Games as a service are multiplayer games that are continually updated with new content. This includes microtransactions, loot boxes, and DLCs.

Single player games do not make much money. The cost to make high-end games has continued to increase. However, the cost of games in stores has remained the same for many years. Raising the price of games would result in loss of sales. That is why game developers are using microtransactions and other in-game purchase options.

This is why EA shut down Visceral Games last year. This canceled the creation of a much anticipated Star Wars game.

Single player is not dying on the computer. That is because indie developers can reach gamers easier. Lilo believes single player gamers prefer the computer.

    Single player is not the one that is dying guys! It is local multiplayer that is dying!

    You know what is dying in video games? Couch co-op. The only reason I buy Call of Duty games is because it is one of the few games that me and my sister can actually enjoy together.

    Technology is increasing in high pace. Games on console used to be an old kind of thing. Nowadays even a kid of 10 years has access to computer. Hence with no doubt single player is dying on console. Totally agree with you Lilo!

  4. Grecy Garcia says:

    Everyone right now are using Computer. If you are playing single then you can do it on computer. Using a console is like 1990’s but anyway, we cannot speak or give reasons to people who founds their entertainment doing it. Single playing in a console is really not cheap. People are now into affordable and reliable and the ones that are always available for free are much better.

  5. Pretty much dying. Who plays single player on console anyway? I mean yes, it can be fun and very helpful especially to those who are new to the game, but I just don’t see the point of it. If you want to play single, play in a computer.

  6. numberpardox says:

    I pretty much agree with you Lilo. I cannot see doing single player on consoles as much as i do in computer or mobile. Single Player is just not made for consoles.

  7. I do prefer playstation 1 and xbox. But nowadays this is not convenient anymore. People are more into convenience, just saying.

  8. ePhantoMe says:

    With growing popularity of MMO’s, single-player story games seem to be moving to the sidelines. Firstly, there are many people who find them very engaging to watch during live-streams , despite the level of toxicity from the online communities. As much as they are exciting they often tend be very basic when it comes to additional content.

  9. moondebi says:

    Every business evolves around profit and loss. No wonder that developers are concentrating on multi-player option as that is more profitable. I am a PC based gamer, and like single player games. However, there’s no doubt that consoles are taking out the place pretty fast!!

  10. edgar says:

    Single players actually not dying, it seems that couple of years ago, gamers prepare to play in more fun and engaging environment than playing alone . still a lot of good games out in the market exp. Prey, Resident Evil,Batman Arkham Knight,Titanfall 2,Horizon Zero Dawn

  11. odimdavid says:

    I can understand why they want to kill single player games: cost and supply-demand relations. In-game purchase options though would still reduce the demand. Except of course those purchases do not make a dent in the gamer’s pockets.

  12. nnaemeka2016 says:

    If Xbox and PlayStation kill the single player games on console, they will lose much of the market in Africa. The cost of data is very high there so many people prefer single player games rather than multi-player services.

  13. haroldmac says:

    Yeah its true it costs so much to make games.Gamers who love multiplayer games won’t have a prolem with this.

  14. miabatoy says:

    Being said that they like to offer games as service makes much more sense.I mean if your going to charge people for playing your definitely giving them service right,we all gotta make money at some point if this is how its going to be people will just play with their computer all the time.

  15. Maraklein says:

    I believe this is true. With the fast pacing era, I believe it is more convenient using a computer rather than a gaming console. I mean you can bring your laptop with you anywhere, but you can’t bring your xbox anywhere.
