Yeah, if GTA6 is announced I'm buying a PS5 even if it's $599. Been waiting too goddamn long.
Did you all forget that at the last PlayStation event they confirmed they were releasing an expanded and enhanced next gen version of GTA V in the second half of 2021.. Why would they do that if GTA 6 is going to be announced and released before that?

Not to mention a next gen version of GTA Online around launch.

I tried watching a video of that guy

He said ‘’Get Hyped’’ about 83 times in the first 10 minutes. I stopped, and never went back

That's nonsense, but you know that.
That is actually true.
You have the video to compare... Halo 5 looks better than Halo Infinite for example.

The backsplash and delay happened because it looked bad even for a Xbox One game... if it looked better like some cross-gen games people may not get too harsh with its graphics.

I am just amazed that the Xbox PR department did not realize how much extra damage they inflicted on themselves, when they tried to hype Halo Infinite. A title that clearly was not ready to be a flagship launch game.

I mean, PR either hyped it up without ever seeing the game, or they saw the game but was so out of touch that they didn't realize it was below fan expectations.

I think they knew what they were doing, knew they were more than likely going to have to delay but still tried to pull a fast one and see if they could get away with showing it in the state they did and launching this year...

They apparently forgot that people aren’t stupid and would rightfully hammer it lol....

It feels like MS know they really fucked up and know they'll lose. I watched some of the YouTube "unboxings" for the Series S. I swear all the videos feel like they are paid to push the point that the Series S is so cheap for a next gen console.
They've gone from promoting the Series X as the most powerful console ever to pushing the Series S much harder due to it having a lower price point.

MS are all over the shop and have mixed messaging. Not a good look so close to release.

I mean, they could have gotten away with it if there was some other Xbox game title that gets the media focus. Halo Infinite is an Xbox One game. And it it stayed that way people would have cut it some slack. But then some genius decided Halo Infinite was going to carry the software hopes of Xbox Series X on its shoulders. They even came up with the outright lie of "Built from the ground up to take advantage of Series X". A term that was legally meaningless, so they could get away with saying something that wasn't technically true.

But where is the end game here?
It is really Gamepass? Is that all Xbox has got left?

I am really convinced that GT7 will be a launch title.
First of all -GT7 was planned to be released on PS4 but they decided to push it on next gen (GT Sport was suposed to be like gt3 for ps2 and gt5 for ps3 and more of a test-ground for gran turismo in form of GAAS)
Launching GT7 early into the next-gen could make for them a really great GAAS with updates through the whole generation.


In any case - if GT7 + Demons Souls would be a launch title - then day 1 purchase for me.

imagine what will happen if they show 40 minutes of games, then just end it with no price or launch date. Riots in the streets.....
That would've been terrible, MS already showed off their cards, there's absolutely no reason for Sony to hide theirs anyone. Especially that the closer to the actual launch the more chances it'll all leak anyway like what happened with MS, it will always look much better if you announce something yourself than a random guy from Twitter.

I know it's only 40 mins, but here are my realistic prediction.

Price, release date, show off box, UI and some features.

Then the games:

First party

Demon's souls
GT7
Spider-Man
Horizon
Rachet and Clank
Silent Hill
God of War sequel
New AAA IP from Sony Japan
Resistance trilogy remaster

Third Party

FFXVI
COD
Dragons Dogma 2
Street Fighter 6
Harry Potter RPG
Starfield
Cyberpunk

Seems realistic

They can’t boost beyond the original coding limits. A 1440p30 game won’t magically become 4K60.
How does it work with PS2 games running on PC arnt they all running past 30fps on 4k with a capable machine?

Like I played Silent Hill 1 in a high res 60fps with AA. It looked so much better.

16 titles plus UI and features will not fit into 40 minutes unless each game shows for less than 90 seconds but I think everything that will be shown is in your list just not everything in your list will be in the show.

Cut the games down to 10 if you intend to show decent game play and the UI segment could be added to a future State of Play even though that is something I am really interested in at this time.

Nah. I'm optimistic. They'll just have to make the show longer. 40mins is a bit short after all.

No way. Polydigital is still outsourcing the car models out to India. We're not going to see GT7 anytime soon, although I wish we would.
