The most disappointing PlayStation 4 announcement

MMGN: The PlayStation 4 launch, or announcement, or whatever you want to call it, was a few weeks back. Now that we've all had time to digest the myriad of announcements, and to stew on the fact that The Last Guardian is probably never going to come out, it's time to digest. Well, to be fair, we've already digested. Now, much like that one time my baby brother ate a bunch of tiny easter eggs without taking the foil off, it's time to rifle through the poop. (Diablo III, PS4)

It still Square's announcement of an announcement. Blizzard actually named something at least.

Square Enix coming up and showing a video of their engine that everyone had seen months prior. Then they bring up another man on stage just for him to say that there will be an announcement at E3!! YAY, that's so... I just... What was the freaking point of them being there!?

Couldn't have said it better myself. Are they so arrogant that they think that would get us excited?

Sony, sell your stake in Square and use that money to build a new studio to steal away their underused talent. So many cool ideas, so few good games. How the hell is FFvs13 not done yet? It's pathetic.

Probably going to be some a-hole statement like Versus 13 going multiplat or something, then downgrading quality, then shoving it down our throats twice more.

Probably going to localize Type-0 for 3DS and iphones too.

^agree with both of you and your points

Step 1: lets show a very old video you all already have seen.

Step 2: Lets make an announcement of an announcment

Step 3: Leave the stage

Step 4: Everyone is trolled

The Square-Enix hullabaloo has got to be the most misplaced and awkward experience in my gaming life. If they showed FFX HD for the PS4 then we could've called it a day and have been merry. But, no. The stage was lifeless after the old footage was shown, and we turned into zombies when the other guy took the stage and virtually did nothing.

SE, if you don't give us something WE like at E3, just please, go back to announcing new games at your own CLOSED MEGATHEATRE event. Maybe then you can surprise as just a little bit just like you did in the past.

I give SE's very poor attempt at hyping things a 1/10.

Yup. Waste of time. If I hadn't left while theywere showing off the tech demo, I'd have been angry for the wasted time in my life, which I could have been doing something more constructive with, Which I was! :)!

Honestly think if it were MS they'd have something more to show than old footage.

Whatever they showed would still wind up selling more on the PS4, but they'd give the Xbox priority.

Square enix came on stage

Hey guys check this out, wait they saw it on youtube? OhHH

probably the most disappointing, if you even want to call it that. the fact that sony was so ahead of the curve with their new machine, that the competition is pretty much irrelevant. competition is healthy, but the only thing the ps4 is going to be competing with, is the ps3 LOL.

You don't seem like you think competition is healthy when you a) ignore the PC and b) write out someone that hasn't even shown what they're bringing to the table yet.
Xer0_SiN  +   510d ago
ok ok youre right. i retract my statement.

the most disappointing announcement, was the fact that sony is shipping 16 million units. thats a lot. now i cant buy three on day one and flip two to make a profit. LOL.

.....uh, no. A launch is the hardware releasing for purchase. An announcement is an....announcement.
