Like where are the guys that came up with games like spyro, jak and daxter, crash bandicoot - I honestly can't remember the last time I played a genuinely fun yet clever and frustrating game like jak and daxter. To me some more of these types of games are needed as sometimes games can be too serious.
Are you not playing any Nintendo games the last couple console generations?

Go on any gaming forum or subreddit. You'll see a lot of people say "I have no idea what this is, what am I actually doing in it?".
I know there's some people that don't know what the game is about, but I was referring to the "false assumptions" part of your post. I'm not saying that those people don't exist, but I bet most people following the game closely enough to be hyped have ether a good idea what it's about or at least know that it isn't Minecraft or the second coming of Wing Commander

From what I've seen, no, not really. Sure, some people probably know everything about this game. But like I said, a lot of people don't know what is. I've seen a lot of people say "so, is this more like minecraft or fallout?" lol. Which is weird because it struck me with a sense of Déjà vu back when people were saying they didn't know what Destiny was (though to be fair, Destiny suffered from some major hyperbole and false advertisement from Bungie/Activision whereas I'm certain that's not the case with this game. Just confusion/laziness.).

well in any case, people overhyped about something without doing any proper research deserve their disappointment. there's more than enough information out there to help you make a smart purchasing decision. it's not like the misinformation and deception for NMS is coming from the promotional machine, the publishers or the devs themselves. like you said, it's pure laziness that's causing the confusion

to be fair Destiny cut a lot of content out and even thought it was on the disc they put it behind a DLC paywall that is why some of the head devs quit.

NO man sky the Devs are downplaying everything so people don't get over hyped and disappointed like you said they might be.

Also like I said before Sean Murray said that they will be updating the game constantly after people have been playing it for a while. So I think they will add in stuff to make the game even better after a while. I think they want us to explore first, then I could see maybe them adding in building stuff on planets. But that is just a guess.

I have a wii and a few Mario games for it - but I'm more of a playstation player and I want some fun games for that console. Like there use to be.

Both are excellent, especially Tearaway.

Information Archive - Introduction

Here we have taken the liberty of gathering all sources for news about.No Man's Sky. Our efforts include pooling valuable details so they are easy to find, as well as stating answers to common inqueries in an effort to avoid spam on the sub. All articles we know of are listed here, and we will continue to update with more as the come. It is recommended one read and/or watch through these articles and interviews, as they each can contain little details that add more to the overall understanding of the game. Thank you!

Be sure to check the.FAQ.before you post! Your question has likely already been answered there! Also be sure to read and watch all the information linked below. Many of these articles and videos will be able to explain many of your queries as well..Particularly informative articles and inverviews will be in.bold.

Common Inqueries

Platforms:.No Man's Sky.is confirmed.for a simultaneous launch for PS4 and PC as of now. No mention of the Xbox One.

Multiplayer:.No Man's Sky is set in a to-scale galaxy that is procedural and infinitely expanding the more people will play. There is a multiplayer, but.please understand.that while it.ispossible to meet other players, the primary goal of the game is to instill a sense of wonder and isolation in a vast universe. One of the selling points of the game is the ability to discover and name a planet, and to be the only person to have ever been there until another player is able to find that planet. The size of the in-game universe is vast enough to make meeting another player a very rare experience..The game is not going to be an MMO, nor is it intended to be..There won't be a galactic war, PVP space battles, base building, turret defenses or anything like that. This is not Starbound, Elite, Star Citizen or EVE, if you want games like those, then buy and play those in addition to NMS. There will be player interaction, but we don't know how it will work.

Currently Confirmed Features

General:

It’s a science fiction game

Coming to both PS4 and PC simultaneouslyPC Gamer

Almost everything is procedurally generated. Ships, Plants, Animals, Planets etc, meaning there are going to be a very large number of variations of each of those things. All the variations will come from a base model though, and there will most likely be a lot of base models in each category.Edge

No saved games. The game will be saved all the time as you go along, but you can’t save and load games. If you die, then you will have to rebuild from where you are in the universe. You’ll never have to go back to the start and try again.Rock, Paper, Shotgun

Uses an alternative periodic table to help create environmental diversity.Edge

There will be a narrative, with a reason for the player’s presence and their activities, and details of various races that preceded you. You won’t be told the narrative, it’s up to you to explore and piece it all together and come up with your own interpretations.Edge

The Atlas will be an important part of the lore.IGN Video Interview

There will be an antagonist of sorts - the Malevolent ForceEdge

Don’t expect cutscenes, dialogues or much text within the game..Edge

More extensive terrain deformation, ground vehicles and a more traditional multiplayer will come later.Edge

2015 has been confirmed as the release date. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

There's a wildly abstract intro sequence inspired by the ending of the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

There will probably be mod support for PC gamers..Game Informer

The game size will maybe be around 5GB..Game Informer

Aiming for 60fps, but no guarantees..Game Informer Podcast

Gameplay:

Can be affiliated with different factions, however you’ll never have indications of this. It’ll simply be that if you destroy ships of one faction, then it won’t like you, or you could help it and it will.Edge

If you have a good status and affiliation, then you will be able to call on AI wingmen (Using D-pad).Edge

The alternative periodic table ties directly into the game’s use of resources, which are used to improve your avatar’s suit and your weapon, and can be traded at space stations to earn money to upgrade your craft, or buy a new one.Edge

Resources can be combined.Edge

There won’t be any quests or missions to go on. It’ll be up to you to decide what you want to do. The hope is that your natural curiosity and the richness of the worlds presented will be enough to keep you interested - this is a game about exploration.Edge

Fun is put above scientific accuracy. Flying between planets won’t be long and monotonous, and neither will flying out of an atmosphere.Edge

There is an in-game encyclopedia where you can view all the rare creatures you've scanned once uploaded.Edge

It’s basically up to you how you play. The universe is a living breathing place that just works. Shipping lanes, trade routes, freighters, space stations. Planets have ecologies..IGN Video Interview

Not an MMO. Everyone will be very far away from each other. But you will feel the impact of other players.IGN Video Interview

It’ll always be first person.VGX Video Interview

This isn't a game about staying on one planet and setting up shop, this isn't core to the game. You can stay on one planet if you want though, it’s up to you.Gamespot Video Interview

There will be a compelling reason to head towards the centre of the galaxy, as well as an ending that will provide you with a sense of closure. But there will be a reason to continue playing after that ending.Edge

You don't have an inventory, but you do have a sort of bank account..Giant Bomb (around 31:50 time)

Any employment in the game will net you money and you can use this to buy equipment.Trusted Reviews

There will be ancient artifacts for you to find which could reveal the secrets of the universe..Homepage

Can see friends location and stats on galaxy map. In game messaging system has been teased. If you fly past another player, you might never even know it's a real person. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

However if you do see another player, it'll be the first time you realise what you character actually looks like, but you'll still just see their suit, not what's inside. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

Money is called units, and can be earned from almost everything you do. Blowing up ships, gathering and selling resources, discovering anything new. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

You will gather resources with the mining laser and grenades, and can only see resources in a special scanning mode. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

If you start attacking other ships, then the station in that system will release the galactic police force on you, which will remember you and be more likely to attack unprovoked in the future. The same goes with the various factions, which respond based on how you treat them. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

Upgrades to suit and weapon don't vanish on death (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

List of some possible upgrades: (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

Ships - Shields, laser beams, plasma shot, rapid fire shots, energy torpedo, wing (affects manoeuvrability), hull (separate stats to allow landing in toxic, corrosive, and radioactive environments), engine (general speed), hyperdrive (hyperspace jump distance), cargo space (split between cargo and hyperdrive fuel), cloaking

Suit - shields, resource capacity, jetpack (height and hang time), air hazard (separate stats for toxic, corrosive and radioactive environments, liquid hazard (length of time submerged in water, acid, and alcohol)

Weapon - laser beam, plasma grenade, energy shot, scan distance, scan type (certain things can't be scanned until this is upgraded)

It's possible to be totally alone in a system, or you could jump in and be attacked by a large amount of pirate ships.Game Informer Podcast

Multiplayer:.Game Informer

This is not an MMO.

Your friends will show up on the galaxy map, but they will be a long way away.

You will be able to see other players, but can only see a few at the same time. So if loads of people gathered in the same place, they wouldn't all see each other.

Friends will not take priority when it comes to who can see who.

If you do see another player, then there won't currently be any indication that it's another player rather than just another AI.

The first time you see another player will be the first time you see what you look like. It'll still just be a suit though, so you won't see inside.

The player character looks different than anything else you'll see.

There will be a way for players to communicate with each other, and leave little messages. And there will be a place where you can leave them, which will be connected. So from one place you could see things from other places as well.

Universe:

Same universe for everyone.Edge Online

Everyone starts in their own solar system, so people will be very far away from one another to begin with..Trusted Reviews

Only significant events are shared between people. So for example, killing a single animal won’t be shared. It’ll always be dead for you though. But if you wipe out an entire species, then that would be shared with everyone else.Sony Video Interview

There is an offline mode, which would mean that you wouldn’t see anyone else’s discoveries.Edge

Made up of multiple galaxies.Stuff.and.Edge Online.andGame Informer Podcast

The planets within the universe will have a 10% chance of having life on them, with 90% of them having no life on at all. Of the 10% that does have life, 90% of that will be primitive and boring. So the lush garden worlds with more evolved life forms on will be rare.The Verge

There will be lots of barren planets, but they can still have valuable resources on.Edge

Planets will generally only have one type of resource on.Edge

"In every solar system there is one core thing that you can do which is of great significance to that solar system. And that is shared among everyone, and fundamentally changes that solar system, and people can choose whether or not to do that. And there are a number of mechanisms like that, which create emergent gameplay.".Edge Online

How planets are created will be based on some simple rules. For example, the distance from the sun will determine the likeliness of there being moisture. The type of sun (Yellow Sun, Red Dwarf, Red Giant etc) will affect the quality of light on the planets. The colour of the water in the atmosphere will derive from what liquid it is..MIT Tech Review

Not all players start on equal terms. Some starting planets will be harsh, some will have rare resources. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

First point of interest on your starting planet will be your ship (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

Galaxy map has several zoom levels: (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

The most zoomed out one is a view of the entire galaxy with an imposing black hole in the centre. A small dot shows your location.

The next zoom level allows you to freely swoop through the stars, where you can scan stars to get more information about them, for example how many planets each star has, or any special properties like extra resources. If online you'll learn additional things like if it's been discovered, and what class of space station is there.

The next one allows you to examine the planets individually. If other players have already explored the planet, you get a detailed rundown of its points of interest. If not, then it's up to you to go and explore them.

Malevolent force is a robotic army. They maintain the balance of the universe and patrol around on some planets. If you are just strolling around, they will ignore you. But if you start killing creatures or carving out resources and they see this then they will attack. So far there's a bipedal version and quadruped version. These aren't procedural, so you can learn how to deal with them. They will attack like traditional first-person shooter enemies, shooting lasers, strafing, and taking cover. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

Current estimate to get to centre is 40-100 hours. The minimum being for people who go straight for it as fast and efficiently as possible. Hello Games can adjust this before release though. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

Regarding what's in the centre of the galaxy, this will be kept a secret. It'll be a nice moment for people, and Hello Games are hoping that they won't want to share what they see. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

Every now and then, in the galaxy map, you'll see a star twinkling because someone has made a discovery..Game Informer

At the moment, there aren't any NPC's (meaning someone standing around at a trading post for you to talk to). They don't feel it would add too much..Game Informer

There are twin stars..Game Informer

There won't be gas giants. Every planet can be walked on. There are ones that look gaseous though, which is kind of what the toxic planets are..Game Informer

Can fly manually between systems if you want, but it would take a very long time..Game Informer Podcast

The galaxy map will have waypoints, and also a mini-map to help navigate..Game Informer Podcast

Some planets will have rings around them..Game Informer Podcast

There are many different types of stars, some of which don't exist in the real world..Game Informer Podcast

It's possible that there will be planets entirely covered in sand or water..Game Informer Podcast

Ships:

You start with a lifepod ship, without a hyperdrive. So you’ll have to get money to buy a better ship before you can really begin exploring the universe.The Verge

Can enter a ship almost instantly, without any laborious animations. (using Triangle).Edge

You don’t get massive ships - you will stay in quite small ships.The Sixth Axis

You can only buy ships that are docked at space stationsThe Verge

There are three main classes of ships: Fighter, Trader and Explorer.Edge

Each class has multiple prototypes.Edge

Fighters are light and symmetrical.Edge

Trader craft tend to be bulkier and slower, but with heavier weapons.Edge

Explorer ships will have much better hyperdrives and stealth capabilities, allowing pacifists to run from every fight.Edge

Each ship will have between one and three different armaments attached, and you’ll be able to upgrade them.Edge

Enhancements are hinted to be more interesting than simply more power or a faster rate of fire.Edge

They are not defined in the game as a specific class, but it should be obvious by the visible hints what a craft is designed for.Edge

A certain type of ship doesn’t restrict you to a certain path, but there are of course some ships more suited to certain tasks than other. But you’ll always be able to change to a different type of ship.Edge

The cockpit of the ship will be the lifepod, so if the ship is destroyed then you go back to a lifepod and you’ve lost that ship..Rock, Paper, Shotgun First Look.and.Rock, Paper, Shotgun Interview

You will have the equivalent of a whistle to call your ship over, so long as it’s close by.EdgeYou can no longer summon your ship..Game Informer

After a while, the wear and tear on your craft is clearly visible, helping you to form an emotional attachment to your beaten-up old ships.Edge

There’s a generous targeting system that only requires you to point your nose near a bogey to loose off a missile or two - you don’t need to be really accurate.Edge

Can “pull low above the surface and climb out in mid-air, before returning to the cockpit and flying around some more”Edge

Landing will be simple and straightforward.Edge

Space combat will be arcadey.Edge

Better ships will be found further into the galaxy, where combat will also be harder.The Sixth Axis

Fuel will be really expensive, and is used to travel from one solar system to the next, like a hyper jump..The Sixth Axis

A quick and cheap way to get fuel is to go down to a planet and do some mining, but you can also make money other ways and use that buy fuel..The Sixth Axis

Hyperdrive fuel and cargo space share the same storage, so while it might be good to take resources to another system to sell for more, you'd have to figure out whether it's worth it. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

In ship combat, different weapons have different specialties. Lasers specialise in melting shields, while plasma projectiles do heavy damage to ship hulls. Torpedo pack a punch, but not as fast as others. There's no ammo to worry about, but you do need to keep an eye on cool-downs. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

Some ships can heal others, like drones in Halo 4, so you'd want to go after those first (in combat). (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

If you die in a ship, you basically just lose the ship and cargo, and have to save up for a new one before you can leave the current system. But you don't lose money or upgrades. So you'll just end up in a basic life-pod, and have to go to the nearby space station to buy another ship, or planet to get more resources. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

So if you were to lose your ship in the centre of the galaxy, you can still bounce back from that. It'll just take some time. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

You can't currently steal ships..Game Informer

Ships cannot fly underwater. You will just crash..Game Informer Podcast

Planets:

Planet sized planets.Sony E3 Video Interview

On the ground you can have a jetpack, which will need to be earned. (Controlled with the X button).The Verge

You’ll have a minimap which will show points of interest, such as resource rich areas and landmarks that you or others have uploaded. Won’t know what it is until you get there though.Edge

Other points of interest include crashed ships, beacons, something to discover like mountain ranges, a vast lake, new species of creature..Playstation Blog

Can name things that you discover first, such as plants, planets, creatures etc. But they will all have latin names by default, which will appear larger than the player names.Edge

Suits and weapons can only be upgraded at trading posts on planets.The Sixth Axis

Upgrades include allowing you to breathe underwater for longer, or survive in toxic environments etc.Edge

You will have a multi-tool, which will act as a scanner, weapon and mining tool. (Square to use scanner).The Sixth Axis

There are grenade like plasma balls.Edge

You can blow holes in things.Edge

There will be combat situations on planets.IGN Video Interview

You have a compass (the heart in the middle of the screen at the top).IGN Developer Commentary

There are procedurally generated rooms.Rock, Paper, Shotgun

The suit nullifies gravity.Eurogamer

Need to take oxygen levels and inventory into account when travelling further from parked craft.Game Master

If you die on the ground, will respawn at ship, but lose everything you are carrying.Game Master

Trading posts are dotted around planets, and there is more than one type. Some might buy up resources, some might be specialised for specific upgrades to your suit and weapons, and not every store stocks the same inventory. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

Shops have ratings that determine the general quality of goods they can sell. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

If you see a ship you like, for example at a trading post, you can follow it back to a station to buy it. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

Don't get any reward for killing creatures, so there's no incentive to wipe out every living thing you see, but you can if you want. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

There'll be portals to different random planets closer to the centre of the galaxy, in rare alien temples that you can discover. The one they saw had a central spire surrounded by a ring of portals to different places with two giant flying snakes circling above. Each portal requires a different weapon or combination of weapons to open. Can't take ship with, so need to gather what you can on other side and go back through the portal. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

Floating land masses will be rare in the final game (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

Currently, planets have a single biome across the entire surface (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

There will be weather on planets, but it'll probably always be the same on that planet. So if you see rain on a planet, then you're probably on a rainy planet, and it probably rains there pretty much all the time..Game Informer

It shouldn't be possible to get stranded on a planet. That would be a bug..Game Informer Podcast

There are carnivorous plants..Game Informer Podcast

It's possible that there will be hostile life that can kill you in one hit..Game Informer Podcast

There will be some very large creatures (not sure about godzilla size though)..Game Informer Podcast

You will be able to sprint..Game Informer Podcast

Space Stations:

The general shape of space stations indicate the quality of items within, and multiple docking bays mean there will always be an open parking spot. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

If you land in the docking bays in a space station, you can get out and browse tradable cargo or stroll down the line of ships to check out stats and prices. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

What you can buy depends on who is there. Could see a ship you like and want to buy that just flies off before you get a chance. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

Some space stations look like Death Star or Borg cube, and can be attacked. Can't be destroyed because there has to be a space station in every system, but can damage them enough to lower their rating. No reward for doing so though, but you can be rewarded for attacking the police it sends out to attack you. (Game Informer January 2015 Edition)

There won't be much to do inside stations aside from looking at and purchasing new ships. It's basically a ship showroom as Sean has mentioned..Game Informer Podcast

I've heard of tearaway, never played it though. Never heard of the puppeteer.

I enjoyed little big planet on ps3 but soon got fed up with having to make my own levels etc - the idea was great though.

As for sky landers - I had considered it and do think it's looks enjoyable but I don't want to have to keep buying the figurines to get further on or unlock certain aspects of the game - I'd love just a remaster of the original spyro that would be great for me and fun - u know I just wanna put a disc in and play!

Just watched tearaway video - have to say looks impressive - the music is awesome also!!

The second planet needs to be called Jif, the third should be called Peter Pan, and have the fourth one be called Planters. :mj
thanks for the wise suggestion. also adding Squirrel and Kraft to the list of unnamed planets not to discriminate against foreign PB brands :wink2:

Oh yeah, well on my planet I shall outlaw the use of leather outfits and ban anyone from playing music from that ghastly band called No Doubt!
