“I still feel like we've only kind of sort of touched the surface of what's possible on the PS5 and Xbox Series X, so I think you'll see some stuff in the show that is truly pretty stunning,” he said. “We’ll see footage of games that will remind people that the best of this industry is still to come.”

He also said that there will be around 40-50 games/game tv/movie spin-offs but new game reveals will be in double digits.

This year has been pretty rough for graphics whores with only Ratchet and Forza impressing, and pretty much nothing else to look forward to on the horizon. So it's great to see that the industry will finally be revealing some true next gen games next month. I want the CPU to finally be fucking utilized. Same goes for this SSD mumbo jumbo thats been shoved down our throat. Let's see how it enhances game design and graphics. Will Horizon add flying in the PS5 version? Exciting times ahead.

Suicide on hold.

Well, games can't be worse than last gen, right? There has to be some improvement. It might not be as dramatic as we would like but still better.

This gen is a slow starter but given the current state of the world it's understandable.

I'll believe it when I see it.

With Geoff, that could mean no more than 2 current-gen reveals out of a majority of cross-gen announcements

He is likely right.

Consider the pandemic and how much it pushed things back.

Consider EA of all publishers is already setting up next gen only titles ie Dead Space remake, Dragon Age 4

I don't think people still realize the enormous leap we're about to get this gen in visual fidelity with these consoles which have barely been utilized to their fullest potential yet, photorealism will be achieved by the end of this gen for sure. But we gotta wait for the second wave of games that come out after the cross-gen period's over first.

2023 or '24 third-party games are gonna have a much higher baseline to develop for than last-gen, so we're gonna see some amazing looking games from TP devs too, but it's the first-party games I'm looking forward to the most.

Bethesda typically doesn't show much of their new games until near launch time. But here's hoping they show something about Starfield.

Yep. Even the best looking games we have seen this gen like Demons, Ratchet and Forza are still held back in many ways. I think Avatar's graphics will be the standard next gen with linear games looking even better.

Even Starfield looks incredible. This is running realtime on a 2080 Super which is around 10% faster than the 2080 which itself is on par with the XSX in standard rasterization.








And Bethesda is NOT a studio known for pushing visuals. For reference, This was their best work on last gen consoles.



So if Bethesda is able to make Starfield look that good, imagine what other devs can do.

"Extra extra! Event organized hypes his event."


I hope I am wrong, but I learned to not get hyped for these PR events long time ago.

If there is one thing Keighley has done recently is deliver on hype. He had the XSX reveal and Hellblade 2 all the way back in 2019.

Even last year where he himself wasnt sure if covid would impact the VGA reveals, he showed up with reveals for Perfect Dark, Mass Effect, and two awesome looking games in Ark 3 and Crimson Desert.

Will keep my expectations in check and read about the reveals after the show as always. It usually airs during the dead of the night (European time) anyway.

WIth that said, MGS Remake, let's go!

Never trust this guy, he will drag you for three hours of cringe and ads to only show one hype Nintendo trailer, a bunch of indies nobody gives a F and 2 cinematics trailer for AAA games that aren't going to be ready for the next 3 years.
This, basically. The majority of reveals will be indie games with 8-bit graphics or this 'games are art' cell shaded shtick. Expect 1-3 AAA reveals, no more.

That said, I'm hoping for Callisto Protocol gameplay. It's been a year, has it not?

you're skipping the part where you need to sit and watch 3 hours of cringe to watch 2 cinematic trailers. At the time they show something good you're tired as f and ready to sleep.

You know what? My asshole is hyped for this.

In 2019 we got the Series X + Hellblade 2, and last year we got Perfect Dark. Surely MS will have something exciting in store.

I guess. How long until any of those games show up? I am just not getting hyped anymore off a trailer that doesn’t represent gameplay with the game being years away.

If she’s right about this (whatever it means) she’s probably to be trusted to some extent.
Seven… FF7R P2? Seven announcements? Nah that sounds like too much… I’ll go with FF7R P2 announcement.

Edit: Nvm.
So the PS5 stuff is gonna be so good she's gonna have an orgasm?

How did she hype the PS5 September conference because if she came to that then we have different standards.
