Only 2.49 for God Hand! Just bought it now. I've been looking forward to this game for a long time. I hear this one is a cult classic. I'm all about that.

Nice.

I'm probably going to pick it up tonight I've been slowly purchasing all the classics that I wanted to have as digital when all the sales show up.

"Nope"

That´s why you getting none. Keep on giving Sony a pass while real Playstation fans are giving them a hard time demanding better.

Cacabunga17h ago

Given the competition they have why should they waste money on them?

ChasterMies17h ago

PlayStation is the number 1 selling console. Sony’s marketing strategy is working. Also consider that Microsoft is now a 3rd party publisher. They will go where the other 3rd party publishers go. I’m sure you’ll eventually see Halo in a PlayStation State of Play.

JackBNimble17h ago

Yeah, why should sony waist money on the fans who keep propping them up no matter what?
Can you imagine if MS was software only, why would sony ever do shows?

Out of all humans I know, you are the least qualified one to tell people to stop giving a company they support a pass.

Cacabunga17h ago

xbox is advertising PS games.

repsahj17h ago

Lol, as if you guys didn't give MS an unlimited pass for a very, very long time already.

Demanding better infomercials?

shinoff218315h ago

Did you have that same energy for Xbox when the droughted you guys for a decade plus? I doubt it

You are right though. Sony has got to give us some sort of gameplan, something, cause Concord, marathon, fairgames, ain't gonna cut it.

@Obscure
You must have amnesia. Do you only remember the MS show and then assume that Sony must immediately respond? Why? Because MS showed a bunch of multiplatform games? Now, Sony must show too? Makes no sense.

Unlike MS, Sony has been releasing exclusive games all along. MS hasnt even released anything yet.

Guys should we tell him?

I'm sorry, you expect us to demand better what exactly? Ads? Because you realize that's what these little presentations really are, right? They are a marketing tool, they don't determine what games we get or not, they are only one way of showing 'em off... Marketing is not the product, is what you gotta do to sell the product and, on that front, do you really think Sony is the one in need of your hot take there? Do you see any other console doing better?

Also, considering gaming companies already spend as much in marketing as they do actual development as it is, not making a bigger thing of these events than they absolutely need to be sounds like good business to me. The industry is suffering job cuts left and right, development costs are through the roof and you expect these companies to spend even more on marketing which produces literally nothing tangible for us costumers in the end? Talk about being tone deaf.

What is worse is showing games that have no release dates. How many games coming out this and next year were announced 3 years or more ago?

If I had 1 console it would be playstation , the track record is unbroken and unsurpassed.

No because they can have their own shows. In fact, all platform holders abandoned “big shows” until recently that MS has decided to go back. Sony don’t have to follow.

But, I am expecting, and want Sony to show its hand sooner rather than later with a major showing.

"In fact, all platform holders abandoned “big shows” until recently that MS has decided to go back"

No, they didn't. Sony and Nintendo, yes. Microsoft has consistently held big shows every year. Microsoft started hosting smaller Developer_Direct's but they didn't stop having big shows. They would sometimes skip a trade show here or there if they didn't have anything to show at that point, but they didn't just stop all big shows entirely.

StormSnooper9h ago(Edited 9h ago)

@porkchop
By “big show” you mean 3rd party conferences like E3, Gamescon, etc.

And yes they all abandoned them for the most part. MS was doing their own as well. Also, whether MS was present at “big shows”, they didn’t really make a splash or a big showing for the longest. All platforms sort of abandoned these expensive venues and went in-house for their conferences. Now, MS has decided to change that it seems.

N4G and the Sony fanboys out in full force today. There isn't a single decent argument down in these comments, just fanboy drivel.

Hmm well for all the talk in these forums, Sony sure does seem like they know what they’re doing

‘Is PlayStation Skipping Big Shows A Mistake?’

As hardcore gamers we miss the big shows, but it hasn’t stopped the PS5 sales success. Hosting shows is not a guarantee of success just ask Microsoft.

Lightning7716h ago(Edited 16h ago)

Unless you just sit on here or Twitter playing sales or worried about sales instead of playin games then have fun.

I never expected Sony to show up as they stop going 5 years now but there's a few ways of looking at it.

1 it is frustrating to see Sony not get ppl hyped and excited for its console with a road map. Makes sense.

2 when MS wouldn't show up to Gamescom or TGS sucked at E3 is because they simply didn't have studios to show at any event through out the year. It's not a studio problem for Sony clearly, Hiroki has been transparent and said he's internally delayed their big games to ensure quality. It's as simple as that. Naturally that means we have to wait.

I'm gonna say the same thing I said with Xbox back then, 3rd party rules, nobody will be bored this holiday to next year because most will be playin 3rd party anyway, unless all you do is sweat about exclusives and that's all you play, yeah you're gonna get bored.

Point is, my second summary outweighs my first thought. They're cooking you simply have to wait come SGF next year, I think we'll be blown away.

isarai1d 2h ago

I mean if they have nothing to show then they have nothing to show. I wish they did have something to show but if they don't why would they attend a Big show? 🤷‍♂️

dumahim18h ago

They have stuff they can show, they just chose not to.

NotoriousWhiz11h ago

No point in showing stuff that's 12+ months out. Wait until it's closer to release.
