Everyone is excited about the PlayStation Experience event planned for December, but who's interested in seeing projects that just aren't ready yet?
I tend to agree with this point of view. Maybe its just bad memories from Versus XIII but I want to see more publishers waiting until the game is nearly ready before revealing it.
So then why don't they cancel E3 conferences. They get u hype up. What's wrong with seeing what's coming soon.thats like getting rid of movie trailers. People can't wait to see what's coming . And I am one of them.
It doesn’t help when games are announced at E3 then released 2 years after the fact. Edit: They wouldn’t need to cancel E3 conferences *facepalm*.. just show the games that are +50% in development. The issue so far is MOST of the games that have been released have needed “delays” because they weren’t ready.
Not all games have a 2 year release date.
it's funny when people complain about lack of games and those same people complain that games are revealed way too soon. to me it's always good to hear what the future will be like for the console.. @Eonjay: i disagree with you because you stretch the problem to the extreme... not many games end up being vaporwares..smh... if the game is released a year and half max post reveal it's fine for me.
I don't care what they reveal.... Just as long as it's coming out within a year or sooner.
I prefer a game to be announced when it is scheduled within a year of release, maybe two. Then show us a trailer or something. Games like The Guardian and Agent is just plain idiotic to announce. They haven't released yet, but for years people kept yearning. Don't hype me up for things that might not come at all! Show me something that you can continually show me that is moving along and nearing release. Don't string me a long to pad up your lineup.
I think they will show us the near final version of project morph.
I'm really psyched to see what they're going to show. Does anyone know where you buy the tickets? They said more info was going to release on the 20th but nothing came out.
I think they are going to show The Last guardian 2 lol
That certainly would fit the rage comment.
I think you mean the The Last Guardian 3.3!
A man agrees. Look at what they did with Bloodborne and LBP3. Both revealed last E3 in June and both coming within a year as it should be. Never got this mentality with big releases that you need to reveal so far in advance. You give yourself plenty of time to generate hype with a couple months before hand reveal.
As much as I agree with this as well. Most of the games that were revealed too early weren't shown with the intention of being in development hell for another 2-5 years. They were meant to be teasers that would lead up to a release within a year to a year and a half, then shit hit the fan. The Last Guardian, Watchdogs, FF VS. XIII, and hell, even Prey 2 are obvious examples. However if they know they shouldn't show us... then WHY even do it? Unless it's just a way to create hype, and them showing it off really isn't a bad thing. And to be honest, my money is more on that latter than the former.
Valid point in my opinion. My biggest annoyance was the reveal of Hellblade. After seeing the trailer I was so pumped due to my total love for Heavenly Sword. Then I find out that all they did was make that trailer for the show, the production on the game had not even started! Damnit. Also what is going on with MadMax??? Another one shown too early. Even Quantum Break... The Division!!! AARRRRGGGGG!!!!! Well, I guess as long as they keep showing stuff early, eventually we will reach a place in about a year where we will have a steady trickle of releases to keep us entertained during these agonising waits. Right now, 'next gen' is not 'next gen' enough.
A game only has so long to capture your imagination and have appeal. Eventually, something else will come along and be that thing. It's best,IMO, to reveal info only when you have to, right before you release the game. * When it's new and excited, THAT is what gets people to impulse buy a game, and those sales are what helps stimulate the industry. It also gets people to try out games they otherwise would not. Once they have time to breakdown every last bit of info, they've already made up in their mind weather or not they like the game even before playing it. * Releasing info only right before game release would allow people to stay excited, on that same level, right up until and through the launch of said game.
I share the sentiment.
i want to see Guerrilla, Bend, SSM, QD, MM and etc new IPs as soon as possible
You might be in luck as far as Guerrilla and Bend are concerned. Wouldn't surprise me if Horizon and Bend's open-world horror IP are announced by year's end and for release next year. As Bloodborne and Ratchet & Clank Redux have shown, it seems like Sony are trying to reduce the time between announcement and release, a bit like MS does. I think the rest are 2016.
Sony: I Don't Want To See Anything You "Shouldn't Reveal Yet" There's some good and bad advantages by revealing a game early on. In case anyone noticed devs get ideas from our commits which helps them polish their game more. The bad side of it, though, we see it enough to the point it create hype. Personally, I think devs need to find a way to balance the two.
Simple. Tease then don't show anything for awhile and don't make any promises on release dates.
100% agree - stop revealing games so far from release!
MM's new IP, along with ND will be the big guns that will define the PS4 ;)Just mark my words guys
FF Vs. XIII was announced long before IG even entered development....what about the Last Guardian?. Many people buy consoles because they are promised these games. I think it should be considered false advertisement.
i really don't care, i just want to see what they are working on. BRING IT ON SONY
Dont show me anything i cant play within 6 months
One can only hope. That's way too hopeful, even for me. 7-8 months notice is probably the best we're gonna get if Bloodborne and Ratchet & Clank Redux are any indication.
Better to know that it will be coming out instead of not knowing at all. Look at kingdom hearts 3 we didn't know shit about it, but at least we know it's in development.
At least they should give a release date on trailers. Nothing is more annoying than seeing a trailer that says.. "Coming soon"
I think 'coming soon' is fair enough instead of giving a random date and then delay. Once they give a date they should make sure they ll be able to stick to it (unlike Batman for example)
Hope it's actually something worthwhile. Although I won't be shocked if it turns out to be something very unexciting either.
I don't think sony will show all of their cards in this event. Maybe one or two new games that will have a release date and a couple of new trailer for UC4, The Order, and Until Dawn. But that's it. They will keep the rest for next year E3, Gamescom, and TGS along with other projects that we still didn't know. I could be wrong though...
2 new game reveals would be great tbh ;) I think you r right though about not getting too high expectations
Well Im fully grown up and I can be told whats going on even if the game is not coming up in the next few months. There has been a few mistakes showing game reveals too early (TLG and others) but lets be honest we follow gaming news because we want to be informed and we should feel lucky when we get to know what games they are working on.
Is there a secret game to annouce? That make the fanboys rage?
ive been interested ingaming for quite a while now, so delays or long production time is not too surprising. i guess with the new age of internet news i guess people want games to be announced within a year of coming out. i dont mind hearing about a game and having to wait 3 years. anything longer is probably a bad idea
3 years is far to long. A lot is guaranteed to change by the time it comes out, and that makes people upset that they didn't deliver what was promised.
I think after The Last Guardian Sony would agree with you. It's probably why we don't know what most of their studios are doing yet.
I've been saying this for awhile. The extremely long delay between the time a game is announced and released feeds the hype/disappointment cycle. I'd like to see games revealed no more than 6-8 months before release. Bloodborne is doing it right IMO, The Order is doing it wrong.
"Showing stuff we shouldn't show yet" was this years motto for EA's E3 press conference. I guess Sony is just using this to generate hype as it makes the announcement more secretive.
Sorry, it's just the basics of marketing, to create hype around a device and to get those who don't have it yet to buy into it and to also show its user base what's to come for the device they bought. Customers often ask, well what can it do that others like this one can't and what's coming out for it..?
uncharted and everything else was fine, a trailer for a game that'll be released next year or the year after is fine. but last guardian, nuff said
