That's a very reductive way of dismissing those games.

PS4 has just had what is probably the best 3-4 month period of PS4 so far or, really, any console ever + E3 is right around the corner. As usual, Sony will probably announce some stuff within the weeks leading to E3 so that some games get a little bit of time to shine alone before the avalanche of information & announcements at E3 bury everything. And then there's E3 where they'll focus on what is coming in the rest of the year and early 2018, with probably a surprise announcement or a few..

Never change, GAF.

Never change from what? Making reasonable arguments as to why silence in this case is warranted? Why Nintendo must do more talking to convince people to buy their system and have faith they'll support it?

It's a bit pointless to expect a company to talk about new market gaming synergy of service based distribution of brand recognition opportunities for customer retention and networking uptake of cloud-based single player experience focused services while their audience is actually playing real games and having a blast.

But the OP is right, Sony have not done any PR for a while, makes you wonder if they are hiding something lol

OR maybe Sony have done PR as normal and no press have covered it widely because there is not much 'new' to make headlines.

Basically, lol.

There are 2 recent threads about the Switch about what some employee said.

Edit: one recent thread about what a Nintendo employee said, the other 2 from WSJ and Gamestop. Still...

Nintendo have been very talkative since the Switch launched, so I dont get what that post even meant...

To be fair, I think it's quite a clever strategy. I suppose the problem with trade shows so close together with big announcements is that they become less impactful which overall loses the quality of their appeal. Two big shows in the middle and end of the year allows just a big enough time gap to really fill out the quality of the announcements and the impact they make. I mean imagine having GamesCom two months after E3 and having to find a whole shows worth of content if your developers and teams haven't made leaps and bounds of progress, it essentially becomes a third party platform when it's designed to broadcast those relationships but more so what the first party is developing.

So really it gives me more enjoyment to wait between shows and get radio silence and just updates on the content that we know is coming. I mean Sony have showed stuff that's 1 to 1 and a half years away yet that I really want to play. They're in it for the long game.

There is nothing to talk about before E3.
They have been constantly releasing great games and looking at the release schedule they will continue to do so even during summer with games like Crash Bandicoot, FFXII Zodiac Age, Yakuza Kiwami, Uncharted Lost Legacy and New Hot Shot Golf.
After that they already have marketing partnerships announced for all the major games of the upcoming fall/holiday season (Destiny 2, CODWWII, SWBF2 and RDR2).
At E3 we'll get world premieres, surprises and release dates for more games. Late summer instead is usually reserved for bundles, price cuts and hardware revisions announcements. It's the same pattern every year.
They don't have a new console to launch or an invested fanbase to reassure on social networks.

They could actually coast off what's already been announced, though this might give us an idea of when Knack 2 & Gran Turismo Sport may be releasing.

You forgot Everybody Golf's in August..

plus the other TBD 2017 titles like Patapon, Knack 2 and GT Sport.

They are talking a lot actually. Even if you ignore the talk around the 7 games they published this year so far they have also confirmed dates and shown new trailers for other 5 games they will publish that are coming in 2017

They been talking a bunch, maybe you not paying attention, or dont care that much

Sony been too busy cranking out GOTY contenders the entire first quarter of 2017.

I really...REALLY want(need) Microsoft to give me a reason to buy a Scorpio. I buy all consoles, that is just what I do. My XBOX One hasn't even been turned on in almost a year due to the complete lack of games. I don't give a shit about hardware or power, as I have a PC for that. I need games Microsoft, please bring the games at E3.

I wouldn't use the term "killing it" because it implies that everything Sony and their collaborators dish out are straight heavy hitters which they're not. Instead, I would say Sony is exceeding highly above expectations.

The big 3 all have a marketing strategy right now.

Sony: Quiet -> storm at a conference. Repeat.
Microsoft : Scorpio will be great, we swear. We will make more games and stuff, we promise.
Nintendo: Drip feed of new information for switch titles. Announce a fuckton of stuff for the 3DS every so often.

Last year up til now has been kind of crazy. But have you already forgotten the earlier PS4 years? Lots of talk, lots of videos, lots of waiting on 1st party games. :P After the launch window period they weren't really delivering until last year when the AAA games started to appear.

There is not that much to talk about. Games have been announced already. Just released PS VR and PS4 Pro. Sales are doing great.

So unless you want a weekly update of "yes, we are still selling a ton of these things" there is little for them to talk about.
