This will be the third time we have created the thread, and we have become exceedingly efficient at it

I didn't see the previous thread sorry.

Mods can close this, thanks.

Can mods possibly merge the threads since other thread has no info on the event?

I wonder if this will look like a next gen game or an updated PS4 game.
Hardly any game looks as good or better than 2017 Horizon ZD on a PS4. But I trust the upgrade will be more in the lighting and particle effects, and there should be a mode for 60fps.

I hope Sony is doing a E3 type event this year. Not scatter a bunch of small shows. The state of plays after the PS5 show ( which announced GT7, Horizon, Ratchet and Clank, God of War etc ) were awful and full of repeats apart from FF16 ( which was awesome )

They don't really need to though. Sony's strategy is all about maintaining momentum. Not disrupting the status quo, that's MS' job.

I don't think it'll get memed to death and end up delayed.

Because it's GG with their Decima engine and they will have spent approx 4.5 years on it, I'm expecting it to be the best looking PS5 game to date.

Yeah but Sony has done it every year for a long time. They done it last year too and werent officially in e3. Its not an MS thing, most studios do it.
And same with Nintendo, they normlly do there own show around that time
Atm Sony needs to give some news because there isnt enough

It has the same info you have as I quoted the PSBlog. Unless you mean the times in the thread title.

Regardless if you agree or not, Playstation as a brand is now at Nintendo levels in terms of their PR, social engagement numbers. When they drop a trailer millions watch it and everyone reports on it. It makes waves. Doing the shows has screwed over their developers. Because they have to take time away from developing the game to cater in making a demo just for E3.

Now that they can go at their own pace, they can stealth drop what ever they want, and can have recorded gameplay from sections that are complete and working. Makes it much easier than trying to cobble together a slice that has varying parts of the game mashed together.

This new way has seriously worked for them well. I think everyone is mostly fine with this delivery. Does it suck we wont have another 2015 event? Yes, does it take away from the hype of these top quality titles we are getting, no?

They don’t really need demos, just put an hours worth of trailers and show some games coming up. Theres like 4 major games coming out ( GT7, Horizon 2, God of War and Final Fantasy 16 ) A new console needs more than that to keep people engaged.

Better to have 1 or 2 big events a year like TGS and e3 and not scatter events throughout the year like they done last year. State of plays have been painful to watch. The PS5 announcement one was great but the rest and the one just before the PS5 launched( August I think ) was absolutely awful, they just repeated everything apart from Final Fantasy 16.

And plus they need to. Nintendo does an event around e3 while not being in the e3 lineup. So Sony will be the only one not doing a show now?

If MS does a show and announces games like The next Elder scrolls, Doom and what not and Playstation shows nothing its just bad business for Playstation. Both Nintendo and Playstation can lose mindshare and hype very quickly. Why stay silent and have customers more excited about competitions line up?

Anyway, I think there is gonna be an event around e3 with the rumoured Souls like Final Fantasy game. Would be a first if they didnt do there own show.

I think you live in an alternate reality. Last year Sony had a big hour+ event that showed a ton of games. Then did state of plays to show the games coming that year like Demons souls and miles. We got returnal last month, we got a state of play for ratchet which is out in like 2 weeks. They are going to do a deep dive into horizon forbidden west Thursday.

So if they are going this so early what do you think the reason is? Their show case like last year is going to be big, and since more people have their games in better condition to show gameplay we are getting more. Expect a hour+ event then smaller events to show case games like Kena coming out this year.

Sony did an event last year like Nintendo did. Playstation is not losing mindshare, if anything the reason xbox is selling in india is because people cant get PS5's. Which was backed by PS4 being second best selling console in that country.

They will do a state of play that is E3 focused like last year. But expect more smaller events later in the year.

Maybe you didnt read my comment properly. Yes I just said they done a big show last year And it was great? The 2nd one was awful and the smaller ones too.

And I think they will do A big one again

My response was to you and others saying they dont need to do a big show anymore

While I thought Horizon Zero Dawn was a tad overhyped and a bit boring on the story and gameplay loop. I still enjoyed it enough to 100% the trophies and dlc. Eager too see this and play the sequel.

Miles Morales
Demons Soul
Returnal
Ratchet and Clank
Horizon 2

While also releasing Ghost of Tsushima and TLOU2 for PS4. Its been a very strong 2020-2021
