Naughty Dog saves the day once again for Sony with The Last of Us Part II & Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, after an otherwise unremarkable PSX 2016 showcase from first party developers with several missing titles.
As nice as these looked, I'm more excited for the game so won't have to wait a year plus to play, like The Last Guardian and Horizon.
Im hoping at the next e3 there will be talk of a killzone 4.
YES ! I feel like people didn't appreciate the series similar to resistance.
KZ4? Hmmm, if Guerrilla Cambridge is behind it I'd be looking forward to it. I don't think GG can make a KZ that matches KZ2 anymore. Last KZ game I liked post KZ2 was Mercenary, hence why I want Cambridge to take the reigns on the next KZ on console.
I doubt it, it will have been just a few months after the release of Horizon and Guerrilla Cambridge has been busy with RIGS.
"After an otherwise unremarkable PSX 2016 showcase". There's no pleasing some people. Or maybe I was the only one excited to see Wipeout Omega Collection, Ace Combat 7, Patapon, Parappa the Rapper, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite/3, Ni No Kuni II, Yakuza Kiwami (and Yakuza 6). Man off the top of my head there's a whole crapload of things that I was not expecting to see that were pretty awesome. I was going in with pretty low expectations, and it turned out to be a pretty solid (if short) showcase of games. And of course The Last of Us Part II just blew the doors off the place.
I'd love that, but they'd need to go back into a warzone. The last Killzone felt kinda flat because of the lack of crazy battles.
I don't get why people give KZ3 and Shadow Fall so much hate. 3 is awesome and Shadow Fall was disappointing but still solid.
I loved 3, it was very underrated, but SF was very disappointing.
3 I did like. A lot. Shadowfall felt like a graphics demo for when the PS4 launched. Ok, but not exciting.
I enjoy shadow fall but its no 4.
2 and 3 were awesome. 2 is my favorite though. Shadow fall was beautiful but wasn't much more than a tech demo. At least the single player. Never tried the multi. Heard that was decent.
I love KZ, but Shadow Fall was lack luster.
I like KZ3 also,KZ:SF was gorgeous far as graphics but it was weird & somewhat had a confusing boring gameplay.
2 was so good, the others after it didn't surpass it in terms of game mechanics, story, and MP map layout.
To be honest I loved every KZ better than the last Killzone. Yeah I may get flak for saying that, but it's true I loved them all.
Shadow Fall was my first KZ game. I actually enjoyed it. So if it's the worst, then clearly I am missing out on some great KZ games.
I don't think so. Everything has been good.
Except that lots of games were missing entirely. Days Gone, Dreams, FFVII Remake, Spider-Man, God of War, the next game by Sucker Punch...A bunch of remasters aren't enough to make up for that.
Were they supposed to show everything there? Wait for e3 man
People like you are what is wrong. Never pleased; always wanting more. They showed a lot of cool stuff in a very well paced way. They didn't need Naughty dog to save the say
They said God of War wasn't going to be there. Days Gone and Spider-man aren't ready to be shown. They were showing stuff mostly for next year. Everything you mention is late 2018 or early 2019. They don't need to show their whole hand and what they showed was way more than enough to knock that presser out of the park.
PSX is about developers bringing the games they want to show PlayStation fans, the developers of most of those games had already confirmed they're busy working on them. This show is about showing the core why PlayStation is for them, which is why Sony, their devs and partners brought what they did this year. Scott Rhode even said to Colin Moriarty that PSX isn't an e3 type show in an interview at the 2015 event, it's a service to the core PlayStation fans and the company just hit PS gamers in the face with a tonne of stuff to cover that requirement.
Those games were recently revealed and also happen to be a long way off, meaning there's no reason to show them again: they aren't announcements and they aren't timely enough to promote until closer to launch. Are you worried all those super high-profile announcements have been quietly cancelled or something? Because yesterday I saw a show that told us we are getting more of two major Naughty Dog games, a load of unbelievable precedents set for localisation announcements and a general push towards reviving several long-thought extinct Sony franchises.
They announced more games than MS released this year. Go write something about that.
Those were already presented on E3. Stop making excuses and always looking for the negative where there is none.
Then people like you will complain that they are shown too many times.
No offence but this event is to celebrate PlayStation with the fans not to be a major announcement event. They announced new things and look at all those you mentioned. It's nice that there are so any games releasing exclusively for a console and talking about them instead of banging on about hardware 12 months down the line with no games announced what so ever. I don't think people really appreciate how well spread out PlayStation announcements are and how the year is consistently filled. The difference is, we know their coming and that gives people confidence in the hardware going forward.
Why? So you can then make a post asking why they only showed stuff we've already seen? C'mon, there's no winning with this stuff. Can't we just enjoy it for what it is and not try and find something to complain about?
@alexious: and if they had done that, there'd still be people saying they only showed games that were announced already. also, they are probably saving all of those games you mentioned for E3 next year...
They showed more than ANY OTHER COMPANY COMBINED in one show....yet still the hater complain. Instead of complaints to the consoles they are fans of about not showing much at all.
@Alexious: You save the big guns for when you're competing with other platforms for press attention, like at E3. PSX is the time to show off the games to fans, and they brought a lot more stuff than I was expecting. Copying the list from above: Wipeout Omega Collection, Ace Combat 7, Patapon, Parappa the Rapper, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite/3, Ni No Kuni II, Yakuza Kiwami (and Yakuza 6), and of course The Last of Us Part II. Besides, people just complained about the E3 games too, saying that the big games had no release dates. People will complain regardless of what you show them.
Dude we just saw them
This wasnt e3 still they showed alot and a last of us 2 cud easily have been an e3 trump card
I agree. Everything I've read coming from PSX has me excited. Many games were shown I wasn't even expecting. I really don't like how sites and people downplay something because it wasn't what they wanted to hear. I came out of it impressed. Others want to complain too much. Where was/is the Xbox equivalent? Nintendo's? Be glad they even do one at all. I feel like this was better than their E3. @Overload Nice one :)
I have to agree the problem is negative articles like this. Psx showed a huge variety of games for all people. No need to show god of war, spiderman, detroit, days gone, bloodbourne 2, demons soul remaster, no sales figures talk just great games and loads of free games and demos too. I am sick of negative BS so called journalists on here. This was better than e3 and showed Sony listen to customers and give us a huge range of software to be excited for.
You right, the bug issue I have is how bad MS has been this year. They showed nothing new at e3 except for a trailer for a console with a bunch of devs talking about power without anything of the console to show. They skip gamescom and of course weren't at tgs. Sony blew e3 out the window and did it again with tgs and psx and Xbox fan boys still come in here to try and downplay. It's kinda sad. I'm suprised there are no articles how how lackluster of a year for announcements it's beenot for Microsoft.
Two more series' added to my bucket list....
I understand ND took the show to a very high level, like they did in the first PSX, but that article sounds ridiculous and not even fancy reading it all. A bit like saying, Sony saves the day for Sony. No shit Sherlock For that matter, even without ND, there were plenty of great stuff. Even today, more trailers and announcement are shown that were somehow missed in the conference, a few games were even not shown at all but posted later on Blog PS and still are pretty interesting
lmao! that's exactly what I was saying. Sony saved Sony, not ND as if ND isn't a part of Sony.
Yeah, I agree. Some of these games shown at PSX are very interesting.
wccftech, like twininite, thisgengaming, and gamingbolt usually like to throw a little shade Sony's way when they get the opportunity.
I would like to see an intelligent article about the rise of click bait, bias and lazy journalism with topics that revel in negative points of view. An article that covers all negativity no matter what games company.
Obviously these are planned to have a mix of games and a couple huge games, its like this every show. Why blow your whole wad in one show? People will bitch no matter how good or how its set up.
Jeez! What a stupid article. Author whining about GT 7 release year, but he's not whining about lack of TLOU part II release date. I mean, c'mon!
Congrats, you just won the most pathetic post PSX article award. Try a more factual approach next time.
What opinion isn't fact?! Wtf. Seriously and here I thought opinions turned into facts. s/
For one thing PSX is meant to be a thank you to PlayStation fans, so even without The Last of Us Part 2 and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy Sony bringing Ni No Kuni 2, Knack 2, the Crash remasters, Wipeout Collection, Parappa, etc, this was basically the end to PlayStation Year of Dreams: 2. Sony trotted out yet more things PlayStation fans have been begging for since the PS1 & 2 days. Greg Miller even got Patapon, which shows Shuhei Yoshida has been listening to the PlayStation core fans. Despite Sony dropping these two huge bombs (Lost Legacy is confirmed as it's own meaty part of the Uncharted franchise), PSX isn't meant be an E3 style show, Sony still brought a massive load of new games to add to the already packed future of PS4's exclusive line-up in the 8th gen. PSX 2016 was awesome, it's no surprise a site like wccftech would write a stupid article, with such an obvious clickbait title.
I was shocked Knack is getting a sequel lol. Like who the hell asked for that!?!?!
I did! Sorry you didn't like it (if you even played it) but I and many others thought it was great! Will definitely be getting the sequel because the trailer looked really good.
I asked for a sequel a few times after I had completed knack with my son so yeh I feel a lot of people loved the game.
That depends, if the sequel ends up being brilliant then its a great decision. Assassin's Creed = ok Assassin's Creed II = Brilliant Sometimes devs thrive on second chances.
Quite a lot of people who played the first game liked it and wanted a sequel, myself included. It was reported that Knack 1 sold over 320,000 units in it's first 2 days of launch in Japan and the game is reported to have sold over a million units in it's first year worldwide, while not stellar numbers it's probably enough to show Sony that a better executed sequel is worth a punt. TBH the first game has some obvious areas of Knack's back story/origins that weren't properly addressed, there's a definite solid foundation of gameplay for SIE Japan to build on and the franchise adds extra diversity to Sony's already packed line-up in the future. Knack 2 should fill in the gap until Insomniac can deliver the next Ratchet & Clank game. Personally I think it's great Sony's giving the IP another try.
I did. And its got some couch co-op even 👍🏻
I was disappointed that nothing was shown of Days Gone. Really looking forward to that game. And God Of War.
Well considering MS will be banging on about all third party games looking better on Scorpio next E3, I think Sony will hit E3 with loads of exclusive games footage that your after. It's great having a powerful console, but its better having a powerful console with exclusive software.
Glad to be getting both with scorpio 😉
Did we watch the same conference, there was something for everyone. Parappa, Yakuza, Nier, Crash, Ace Combat!, Resident Evil. Just one great announcement after another. Sure, there is no doubt Last of Us Part 2 stole the show but the entire show was great. They even mentioned the Vita after 2 years of silence. Seriously, did you even watch it or are you one of those bitter people who are mad because Keighley's game awards was a slow motion train wreck?
"there was something for everyone." Exactly! Not everything in the show was targeted at me but at the same time I was really appreciating the efforts they went through to please as many as they could! With Japanese games a plenty (not all of which are for me, but ni no kuni 2 rocked!), wipe out (which I enjoyed as a kid but haven't been screaming for one like others have), vr games and a lot of smaller/indie games. I was pretty impressed by the show, it was much better than last years.
You know how journalism is there days./s I was especially pleased with Last of Us II and Patapon. That trailer gave me chills.
I don't think Sony's day needed saving. Naughty Dog just gave the world two more reasons to buy a PS4.
I thought it was a good show, Uncharted and TLOU 2 is the icing on the cake. But it was still pretty good :)
Even if naughty dog wasn't there, they had a SOLID line up of games for the entire conference!
I'm sorry, but that whole conference was amazing. One big nostalgia bomb. Which is what it's meant to be. This is a conference for the FANS, to cater TO said fans. And they did. Wipeout is back. Crash gameplay. MvC4. Freaking WINDJAMMERS. Yakuza Kiwami & 6 localizations confirmed. A much-needed shot in the arm for the VIta with some pretty good titles, who normally never would have gotten that kind of stage presence or fanfare. This was a smaller-scale version of their E3 conference this year, and they killed it both times. EDIT: That Nioh trailer was amazing too, and learning William Adams is the protagonist was an AWESOME factoid for a history nut like me. lol
YOU FORGOT PARAPPA THE FLIPPIN RAPPA SLAPPA!!!
I dont understand this article, let me just see if I've got this right, PSX was underwhelming because the games that were shown weren't all Sony exclusives? Well shit, just because of that I am selling my PS4 immediately.
really? There was quite a few items in there i was really surprised and happy about.
The show just ended in a much higher note than everyone expected. It was gonna be just fine without Naughty Dog ending with TLoU 2. They did not save any day.
This,.. Hell I think it was better than E3,..ND games helped making it legendary,.. but there was so much great stuff there, I was smiling all the time.
