PlayStation Experience Wasn't Much Of An Experience

The much-vaunted PlayStation Experience didn’t really yield a ton of surprise and enthusiasm. Did Sony miss a great opportunity?

One of the reasons i heard why Sony set up Playstation Experience is that there is so much for them to show that E3, Gamescon, TGS aren't enough to showcase everything. Whether that is true or no remains to be seen but if it is than WOW! Sony must have a ton more to reveal & that is exciting.

In the past Sony is known for leaks & early reveals. Now they have been much more secretive about what they have behind the scenes. All this mystery is exciting don't you think?

It has only been a year since the PS4 was released. I get tired of bloggers and sites saying 'where are the games?'. The Playstation brand wasn't built in a year people! Are we so forgetting the previous Playstation eras already? The games will come & when they do there better be no complaint that there are too many games from these bloggers or gaming sites. We've seen it with the PSone, the PS2, the PS3 and we will see the games on PS4.

The last paragraph of your comment is probably right on. PS always has a light start for games and then the games just keep coming. It's possible that this will ring even truer this gem as they have a nearly 2:1 sell ratio to their direct competitor and business has been very good.

Bubs for you

Most if not all where already shown at other presentations.... all we remember fr this event was Final Fantasy 7

gangsta_red1345d ago

But they didn't really show much or reveal anything that most of us here didn't already know.

I mean from all the stories leading up to this, it came off as if Sony was going to drop some more exclusive games that have not been announced yet.

The biggest reveal was SFV being on PS4 and PC only.
Other than that No man's Sky, Uncharted 4, Bloodborne and The Order...all games we already know about. More gameplay was shown but nothing more.

Drawn to Death...meh, maybe, but another arena shooter. Expected a little more from Jaffe honestly.

And what else was there? Day of the Tentacle? More indie PC ports? A friggin port of FF7, which everyone did a huge groan about?

Chalk this one up to another instance of overhype and expecting more than what the actual company really promised.

i didnt expect any new announcements till E3 so every announcement at PSEXP was a bonus to me

First 15 minutes was enough to make it a great "experience"

I love PSex! see what I did there!

Add in that TLOU caliber gameplay from The Order!
add in that literally unbelievable gameplay of No Man's Sky!
Long live the Vita!

the lowest point was probably what made this "writer" post this:

the FF7 reveal-LOL Square should of just shown some new FFXV gameplay and snuck in FF7 reveal.

tucky1345d ago

Nothing really new and no real surprises ... I really think I lost my time looking at that show.

Wake up Sony, where are all the promises???

SmokingMonkey1345d ago

The Forest?

Drawn to Death?

What else did you see in that crystal ball of yours?

XanderZane1345d ago

Human Element was actually a surprise. I forgot about that one. Don't think it will be exclusive on the PS4 though. Might be timed exclusive. Drawn to Death looks like an indie game. The Forest is just another survival game and there are plenty of those all over the market now. Nothing revolutionary about it and probably will be on other platforms as well.

SFV alone was big news , even if leaked right before the event . And i dont see what's wrong with actually seeing in action games that were solely announced , guessed , or teased

The content was there , so long as you didnt expect outlandish stuff steeming from silly speculations like OMG FF7 remake , Titan Fall 2 , Legend of Dragoon 2 !! etc etc

kalkano1345d ago

I don't see why those are "outlandish".

Baka-akaB1345d ago

It was just examples and some of the stuff floating around , unsupported . I wouldnt put myself out believing any unicorn stories from dubious sources every new events

You already knew about Yakuza 5
