Talking Point: Will Sony Have Enough PS4 Material to Topple Microsoft's Game Heavy Show?

Push Square: "Microsoft’s heavily hyped E3 media briefing this year was always going to be about redemption for the put upon platform holder. With new gaffer Phil Spencer attempting to turn around the organisation’s image, the press conference was filled with phrases aimed directly at fans. “Thank you” was a statement that seemed pre-programmed into each presenter’s speech, while the firm was also eager to point out how consumers have shaped and will continue to shape the future of the brand, which is now dubbed “new Xbox”."

All i want to see are actual, live, stage demo's. MS padded their conference with tons of multiplats and CG trailers. I don't want Sony to do that. I understand there will be multiplat showings, as there are at every MS/Sony E3 conference, but if Sony show actual gameplay demo's of their exclusives and new IP's instead of just CG teasers, then i can see them having the best conference.

Live stage demo's of The Order: 1886, Uncharted 4, Driveclub and Project Beast will be amazing.

And those are all good games but what will Sony pad their conference with? Sales talk? Charts? Install base? I'd rather they show off exclusive gameplay or new game reveals whether it be multiplats or first party titles. ;)

Sony will have too much to show. Let us not forget Sony isn't just the PS4. They have a PS3, Vita and Morpheus to talk about and show games for.

BTW, and come to think of it, where were the 360 games from MS?

pixelsword2499d ago (Edited 2499d ago )

Maybe, maybe not, lolwhut; they already have the gamer's attention, they also need to reach potential investors as well.

GarrusVakarian2499d ago

PS3, Vita and Morpheus....i would imagine.

Adding Playstation Now to the list.

They won't have must time to show games, they should focus on exclusive games.
I also hope that the games aren't in a early stage of development.

stuna12499d ago


It's already starting to happen! In hindsight they totally forgot about the 360. The push will be more focused on the Xbox1. People were wondering how Microsoft PR got so many things wrong last year here's how! You totally forget about an entire platform.

@Brutallyhonest, c'mon bruh you know the answer to that, soon as Microsoft starts on a new system the old one is DEAD. They quit on 360 in 2009.

The issue with stage demos of gameplay is time...

A trailer takes 2-5 mins...

Stage demos eat 10's of minutes.

I think MS did the right thing, now they can follow up the conference with game previews in the media and hands on at their booth.

Microsoft's conference was either a trailer (with a lot being CGI) or promoting the third parties with their demos. They just need to show more exclusive demos. I don't think it will be spectacular though. I can see this year (and I said it before) being a disappointment.

Kayant2499d ago

A demo of uncharted 4 and project would be a good start but probably wouldn't happen :(

Sony's main problem as always being the pacing and and how they go from platform to platform.

majiebeast2499d ago

Microsoft conference was CGI,multiplats and oh look we love indies too. Then a big finger to the Conker fans "We just fired most of Rare so go make your own damn Conker!"

Sony show beast,Uncharted 4 and some new IP's and you beat Microsoft.

Rumor going by Giantbomb that No man's Sky will be at a press conference most likely Sony's

Jaqen_Hghar2499d ago

yeah the Conker tease pissed a man off!

GribbleGrunger2499d ago (Edited 2499d ago )

Oh, come on, let's keep our sanity here. In retrospect, yes, we could dissect the conference but at the end of the day it was a good conference.

NovusTerminus2499d ago

Microsoft mostly advertised for PS4 as well.

And am I the only one who finds it funny that Dead Islands devs, who are making Dying Light were labeled indie devs by MS for Hellraid?
