Film Theory: Is SAO the MOST EXPENSIVE GAME EVER? (Sword Art Online)

    SWORD ART ONLINE is one of the most (in)famous anime out there today, and its premise is cooler than most whole shows. SAO is a fully immersive VR MMO-so immersive that people in the game can LITERALLY die from playing it. Needless to say, this sort of VR experience doesn’t exist yet, but we’re definitely creating the groundwork that will lead to this tech. But knowing how much our current VR systems cost, is a game like SAO even feasible for developers? How much would it cost to create something as ambitious as this? Well, Loyal Theorists, the answer is SO MUCH MORE than you expect!

    also minecrafts planet in Real turms would have a diameter larger than 5 Earths and mass of multiple Suns (as mentioned in another video)
    so it turns out our sun is not very dence even with that extreme mass because all its mass would fit in terrestrial planet few times larger than earth

SO MUCH DETAIL AND WHEN U IMAGINE THE SITUATION YOU WILL IMAGINE IT PERFECTLY if u have watched the show or seen alot of hentai it will be like u were in the room WITH THEM and someone who wrote this had to have sexual experience to explain it like this.but I envy Kirito in some ways. I mean... YOU'RE 14... AND YOU GET ALL OF THAT?! LUCKY AF. I SEE WHY THEY DIDN'T PUT IT INTO THE SHOW EVEN THO ASUNA GOT RAPED IN SAO SEASON 2 btw it is censored SO PUT YOUR DICKS AWAY. And how come Asuna didn't get pregnant?

    there is a lot that we don’t know about the cardinal program. Kayaba might have given it a directive and it used some kind of a.i to rapidly make a world of its own having far more capabilities than a human being. it could practically make an entire business worth of people working insanely fast to make sao.

    There is ONE way to make it Sao cheaper.It’s to make the art style into the Sao ANIME art.Instead of the 3D semi-realistic models in most MMO-RPGs we are used to.Or it can be 3D but it’s in the anime style.Like the Gungale computer game based of the show.This would shave off at least a COUPLE thousand dollars

  • Jojo Michalko
    Jojo Michalko 2 days ago

    You forgot other things like developing the sense part would be part of the head set and what point is having a game if there is no console to the game? The head set would take time and more money but would probably be cheaper to create than the game and would sell for more due to the materials needed to make is so this lessens the price and even if it’s in the 4 year time span we don’t know if people have developed better tec which would make the price change drastically and why would they sell the game for 60$ people would buy it even if it was in the thousands or even millions on the market, these are somethings that should be considered

    I'd go to SAO 99% the only thing stopping me would be money. I wouldnt even care if i'd get stuck there and die. I know i'm not some Kirito or anything and I'd probably lose my mind there + the other possibilities of death, but id give anything to experience that.

    I hate sao

    AND if you do like Sao this will change you're mind

    1.kiriot and sauna are 14 when they have sex

    Pretty messed up
    2.tentacles...and lol is... You get the point
    3.kirito is perceived to be a god stronger than anyone and has done unexplainable things that would be impossible for him to do which breaks any tension because we already know he will win
    4.all the characters are bland and forgettable I mean tell me 5 character names without googling them
    5.everyones an idiot I mean really opening a chest inside a room without anything else? Stupidity beyond stupidity
    6.its edgy like real edgy

    Overall this Is an anime that endorses child sex tentacles edginess people who can't die idiots and mass murdering without motive

    Have fun with that thought

  • FrozenWifi

    There is no point buying the game if you have no console to play it on. Now you said that the game would cost 485 million dollars to develop along with the nerve gear, but you never implemented the buying price of the nerve gear into the equation so here's the real result.
    I think it's fair to say that the nerve gear would cost more than a htc vive when it first came out at $750 dollars since it basically alien technology. And I'm guessing a system that has enough power to run Sao would cost a fair bit more, Although not knowing the actual price of the nerve gear I'm going to leave it at which I would be around $5000 with them probably making a profit of $1000 on each device.
    With total amount of profit for Nerve Gear being $1060 and the game being 485 million dollars to develop, this means that only 7250 copies would have to be sold to break even. Sound familiar?
    The virtual reality dream is still alive.

    Considering Fallout 4 sold 15 million copies, and a VR brain enabled game would be so next-gen that it would be considered future-gen, I guarantee this game would sell more than enough to make it's money back (and them some). Everyone and their grandmother would be buying this game just to experience something that unique and out of this world. I think it's safe to say we will see something like this in the next fifty years. Too bad most of us will be in our 80-90's by the time it comes out.

  • Poppy is my Girl
    Poppy is my Girl 3 days ago

    Is it just me or has no one thought of AIs creating the levels before?
    Kinda bugs me that MattPatt didn't say anything about this..for example:
    One AI could be responsible for towns or houses. The game developers would have to train the AI to recognize different buildings, what country, what culture etc.
    And at some point the AIs would know what a kitchen is, what kind of style a kitchen might have and in what condition the kitchen would be for the age and owner.
    They would obviously do this with real life 3D images along with really high resolution images of said object or landscape too.
    You would also need different AIs for different things obviously..otherwise the AI wouldn't be able to keep certain things apart.
    But all in all far easier than placing everything by hand.
    Of course you would need certain parameters.. for example for trees (that tree don't spawn on a cliff side in a really weird angle)
    This AI making the levels thing would massively cut down the cost of level designers and developers because sure they would have to
    design and place every WANTED possible location/angle for a object..but they would only have to once.
    The AIs don't even need to be sophisticated and since it would be the year 2024..i think by than this should be possible.
    And as for our current game engines and technologies..we've practically hit photorealism:
    well almost :D

    MatPat I've been a fan for years in fact you got me into anime with Attack on Titan theory but you could have gone a better way with SAO.
    TLDR: This video was boring to me.
    You could have gone many ways. Mainly why the technology they use would probably be banned from the start due to the fact that people could hack and kill people over the web. Yes the tech could cure blindness if you attach a cam to the NG and teach people skills Matrix-style but it is dangerous technology for sure not to mention the economics and morals, if people can do anything in the games where does that leave the real world or what about sex, no kidding there would be tons of sex and probably not legal real world sex either.
