If you guys were expecting exciting news and surprises from upcoming Playstation 4 launch event on Spike TV, prepare to get disappointed
All he said was "no", and knowing Shu he's probably being sarcastic. He loves to troll people.
And you gotta love him for that :D https://pbs.twimg.com/profi...
i prefer not to expect anything. i'm glad of what i'm seeing and what PS4 has to offer.
I would much prefer for Sony to under promise and over deliver than for them to hype up something like it is going to be the second coming. Now I can be pleasantly surprised by whatever they show, without thinking there is going to be some crazy reveal. Before this people where talking about a Demon's Souls 2 sequel being revealed or more info on The Last Guardian. That would be great if it happened, but most like it won't which will just mean you will be disappointed in whatever they show, even if it is a cool new game or feature.
"i prefer not to expect anything." This. Also Keighley is an overhyping hack, so I'd just go in with low expectations regarding megaton announcements.
I prefer to expect something from spike this year. there's always something new sony shows on spike. at least a last guardian release date or something.
i must the ps 4 luanch line up is probably the worst line up i have ever seen for a new console. its so shit compared to that of the ps 2. might be an improvement over the ps 3 launch but thats not saying anything at all.
We weren't expecting any new games to be announced. That is reserved for E3 2014.
I don't know. He is usually pretty straight about things and knowing Geoff, who bigs up everything (even the smallest of things), I wouldn t be surprised if there isn't anything. But like you said it could be Yoshida trolling but I am not getting my hopes up
Last year he said the same thing. Geoff called for surprises, Shu literally said "Don't expect any" and then after... trollface. But if he says "No" he usually means it.
@Dragon - I think troll, simply because if he said 'Yes, expect something' then as a gaming community everyone would be expecting something bigger than what it actually is and risk everyone being disappointed because of the hype we as gamers generate, for example GT5 when they kept delaying it so much and then everyone took it as it was going to be some game from outer space and when it arrived it was pretty much exactly how it should have been yet people were still disappointed because if the expectation. Sort of apples and oranges but you see the relevance to a degree.
Why the denial? Seriously, not everything PS has to be a "big surprise". We're talking about Geoff here who hypes EVERYTHING up to get people excited to watch the stupid show. If you expect big, you're going down a path of possible disappointment. Instead, expect nothing crazy and if nothing crazy happens, it's all good. If something crazy does happen, then now you have a reason to be excited.
That is a good way to go through life. A lot of people always expect big or huge things to happen to always set themselves up for disappointment. Keep expectations low and then be hyped when something bug does happen. Even going in for a job promotion I never think I'm forsure going to get it.
You two just described pessimism.
@MarkusMcNugen No. I just know when to not get all hyped up over something Geoff says when 90% of the time he's hyping for the sake of getting people to watch the show and it turns out to be something not so amazing. Remember when Sony teased that picture on Twitter and EVERYONE went ape shit thinking it's going to be some megaton game. Turns out it was a stupid Ratchet and Clank downloadable title. I get hyped when I see results, not BS teases.
@xPhearR3dx "Turns out it was a stupid Ratchet and Clank downloadable title. " This says everything i need to know about you.
I agree. These Playstation fans on this site can get really annoying sometimes. Don't worry about them. Let them get all delusional and hype it up for themselves. It'll be funny to see because they'll be disappointed in the end. There's no point being in denial. If the man said "no," isn't that enough? Please give me an instance where Shu said "no" and there was actually a big event in the end
xbox fans on playstation article calling playstation fans annoying go figure :/
I don't think Sony will be showing upcoming blockbuster titles for the PS4 until the VGA's or other gaming events. Why would they do it launch night? That doesn't make any sense to me. We are already lining up to get a PS4. We don't need any more incentive or we wouldn't already be in line.
@Utalkin2me Really? There's 9 Ratchet & Clank titles on PS3 if I'm not mistaken. Probably more. That's more than one a year since launch. One that's just stupid. Two, why get excited over a game they've been milking the crap out of since the launch of the PS3. Ratchet and Clank was great on the PS2, ever since it hit the PS3, it's became a milked chore of bordum.
expect less, and get more. people suffering from anxiety are taught exercises to move into this way of living. its a far healthier way to go through life. nah mean?
i don't get it, guy says no and you all think he's joking? What kind of logic is this now? Now you're just setting yourself up for disappointment. We all know Geoff is a tool who hypes up anything from a new game announcement to Doritos announcing a new flavor.
ALL HAIL DORITOS POPE, GIVER OF DORITOS TO THE WORLD AND ALL WHO INHABIT IT PRAISE BE TO HIM! HOORAH! HOORAH!
What kind of logic? I'm not saying that something big will be shown for sure, all I'm saying is that Shu is constantly trolling people every day on Twitter. So, I don't know, maybe there's a chance he was trolling this guy? I'm not setting myself up for anything, I was just pointing out the fact that him saying "no" doesn't necessarily mean no. Obviously the opposite could be true as well.
read the ps blogs post on this they say "exclusive debut's and trailers for the ps4 games that will define 2014" or words to that effect... really thing there aren't going to be new game announcements... new exclusives?
Come On guys lets be real you think Sony would have a Big event the day that close to the release of the PS4 and not show Something New of course they will but then again we will see.
Not always. When TGS came around somebody asked him if there would be more announcements at the show and he said no, everything had been said at that early presser. A lot of people thought they were just teasing and going to show off something grand at the show, and then nothing happened. Turns out he was telling the truth. It's probably going to be the same here. Just a recap of everything coming out and hyping up the launch of the console at midnight.
It is the perfect timing, imagine announcing the next naughty dog, Santa Monica and epic games the night of the release, it would be a huge boost
BTW, he also said "no" to the same question about gamescom! So don't expect any *major* surprises, but some cool announcements nonetheless!
Just look at this man, this is how job is done. He is always fun and cool and stuff :D Not like those shady and negative xbox people.
Look at ps blog post they mention showing the games that will define 2014 for playstation 4.... I don't believe they'll just be 3rd party... might be like destiny as it has PS exclusive content etc. But otherwise I expect to see a new game or two-besides what Yoshida considers a suprise or something that we should expect mean he might not technically be lying... if Naughty Dog announced say uncharted 4, or Dark Souls 2 got announced would anyone really be surprised...?
If a man expects a big surprise then a big surprise wouldn't be a big surprise because it is expected and therefore not a surprise at all.
You just wrinkled my brain...
means we can expect something lol, shu is awesome but you can't expect him to say we will reveal something big
He's definitely trolling.
Why would he just say "No"
Expect One big announcement and some smaller stuff.
Although Geoff Keighly always hypes everything beyond belief and always underdelivers
I hope Shu is trolling. I want shock and awe, nothing less. Bring it Sony!
Of course they wont.The big titles are mostly announced at the major gaming conventions.It wouldnt make sense sincr everyone will be in line waiting for their PS4.
^^ This. Let the enthusiastic buyers ride their Killzone hype, and announce games where it will have more impact.
Welp, There goes my wishful thinking, but you have to wonder. Why does Epic Games have a countdown clock set for PlayStation 4 All Access event?
They have a countdown? I'm on there website and I can't find it....
Here You Go: http://gyazo.com/74133bb03f...
Thanks for the link. It's very much appreciated. =)
They will be probably announced at the VGAs.
I'm surprised no one laughed. Can I expect big things? "no"... You think he would say it like that if he was serious?
Well apparently it dosnt matter what he says
Yoshida is trolling once again. Remember last time he said that? Yeah.. :3
It could be that yosh is trolling but Keighley does hypes up everything.
There's only one way to find.... I hate the waiting game.
Go ask someone if they're planning a surprise birthday party for you. Do you think they're gonna say yes?
If sony had a suprise it would have been announced.. I am certain of that.
You're psychic? :D
If a man expects a big surprise then a big surprise wouldn't be a big surprise because it is expected and therefore not a surprise at all. A man thought he would reiterate
Yeah based on his short and to the point "no". I kind of think they may indeed show something new and he just doesn't want to hype the crap out of it or wants it to be an "OMG I cant believe they just showed that" kind of moment. Its not as fun of a surprise if you are expecting some sort of surprise. Or maybe it really is nothing..lol Sometimes I really suck at being patient.
Wasn't it spike tv that showed only coverage of xbox one during e3? Im not supporting them they are not about video games..
Trust Yoshida and possibly be surprised, or trust Keighley and probably be disappointed. Not exactly a hard choice.
This seems like an obvious troll comment from him. I'm still psyched to see what happens. We also have the VGA's coming soon too.
That would be pretty crazy if they announce the next gears game is gonna end up on the PS4.
Please no more Gears.
Well just saying, that would be a pretty substantial blow to the Xbox Exclusive lineup.
I would like to see that Samaritan demo made into a game.
Honestly, I'm glad he responded with that. I don't think he's lying to us here. I think Keighley is overhyping, as usual. I'd rather not be disappointed.
LOL ol Shu always trolling us
If everybody thinks hes lying, the trolling part would be him telling the truth
Kneighley and GTV are the worst at hyping things way way way way tooooo much. always a big disapointment with those guys
Damn I'm so excited. I never been this excited for console launch before. Greatness awaits.
When something is kept in secret it's so much better ;-D
I'm not expecting anything, doesn't do me good to get all hyped up and potentially see nothing. I'll just keep expectations low so if there is some big reveals I will be that more elated.
Good news is always best when you lest expect it. If you know it's coming, half the surprise is lost. Gateway MT6706 2008
I am sure there may be a surprise or two but nothing ground breaking. Geoff Keighly just doing his best to pump up his show and get all to watch it. I very much doubt if there really was a big announcement to be made that Yoshida would be trolling people by saying "NO" and downplaying the importance of the show if infact there really is something important/big to see.
I don't think they'll make huge announcements at an event that nobody will be watching. We'll all be in line for the PS4.
