Sony skipped E3 2019 completely, and yet it still managed to be the third most talked about publisher at the show.
They didn’t go to E3 yet some of the biggest game were announced for their console. Also funny how they are getting less concerning articles now than when they actually had their best E3 (2016). Maybe they should scrap E3 altogether. It is not even the same anymore and the fact that a hollywood actor was the biggest spotlight there proves it
It's only a matter of time now, people only just got back from E3.
Game companies should only have a big conference like they would do at E3 when they NEED to do it, I mean there has to be a point during a meeting where they are like "we have games x, y and z to show off with gameplay, all ready to go and we know we can release them within a year or a year and a half excluding any delays we might face, I think we should do our big yearly conference next month"
Yh.... I kind of agree. I like the spectacle of e3, but let’s face it, it never ever lives up to the hype. Too many companies with too many conflicting schedules. Cannot expect everyone’s most exciting announcements to be saved for e3
@-Foxtrot You think it only takes a month to organise something like E3?
@shaggy2303 Take out the bigger venue, the public, the show floor and just have the conference with the press in a smaller location...I don't think it would be that hard.
I loved the cyberpunk reveal but agree, the highlight of E3 shouldn't have been a person. In fact I think lessons would have been learned from that.
People make a fuss when they aren't there, then realize what Sony brings when they are. Puts the criticism in perspective. I doubt it will mean that the media focuses on what matters in the future, because they didn't as much this year except to lament how bad e3 was, or something along those lines, but it does exemplify a problem that does exist in gaming media and even the community.
Loved the easy allies E3 stuff other than that, it was aload of BS, Dr disrespect like wtf, keunu Reeves news etc, it's supposed to be about he games. I can't remember half the games announced cause they didn't interest me.
12 minutes looked cool There were a couple indies in that sizzle reel I keep meaning to go back and find out what they were to find out more, but they went by to fast to register while watching. Rest I didn't have a problem with overall, but much of it didn't interest me...more due to my personal taste in games than my belief they may be bad games or not worth my time.
I agree except for the "a Hollywood actor" part. Keanu is not just "a Hollywood actor", he is a well loved person because of how humble and generous he is. I assure you that any other actor would not have made the same impact that Keanu did.
he's also in the game, so he's not just promoting it like FFXIV just did with tom holland.
To be fair Keanu is a cool guy. He is actually pretty down to earth and does not push any agenda although I am sure he is pretty liberal. He is respectful of people as well
What would make you think he was a liberal? In his most popular movies he is a gun wielding bad ass. The Matrix was filled with biblical references to boot. One example is the license plate on Smith's car says IS 5416. https://www.biblegateway.co...
“The biggest moment of the event on Twitter was Nintendo’s press conference Tuesday morning, which unveiled gameplay from Luigi's Mansion 3, the remake of The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening and teased a Breath of the Wild sequel.” Well deserved. “Nintendo earned the most tweets of any game publisher this year, followed by Xbox, Sony (impressive, considering the Japanese company was absent from this year's convention), Square Enix and Bethesda.” Sony didn’t even show up and was still the 3rd most talked about. Impressive.
Lol. That's the force of brand recognition. All those developers, Sony doesn't show up and is still one of the most talked about. Brand power.
Sony is GOAT at e3
Says it all really.
Lol thats what making quality games gets you.
Not surprising they were #1 trending on Twitter after Microsoft's press conference.
MS screwed up so bad at E3 it was mind-boggling! they were given the whole stage at E3 and Sony basically said "the stage is yours, do whatever you want" since last year and they only brought a CGI trailer galore of a show! if it was not for Keanu, their show was a total bust! - and THAT in itself is already SAD! it's like a summary of their whole gen. unprepared and all hype but no substance.
That E3 from MS will only damage them further with gamers thinking wtf was that. Seriously Sony coming out of this positivity over ms will only hurt them more, MS can literally not fail nxt E3 scarlet reveal with gameplay. If there nxt gen games don't grip the gamer like halo and gears did bk in the day then its fundamentally the end for MS, they'll just become a streaming service then.
Clearly shows fans are nuts. Company fails to show up and the sheep follow.
Could you pass the salt please?
For someone who repeatedly admits they’re not a Sony fan, you sure seem super butt hurt they didn’t show up. It takes a sheep to continue following a brand year after year of nothing special. Sony fans already know what’s on the horizon. Anything left on the table not announcing things at this e3 is icing on the cake. No need to worry if there’ll be something amazing released next year when you look at the track record.
Well played Sony. I am very sure they have something on their sleeves that is going to amaze us.
I know Sony had me excited this E3 when SquareEnix announced Final Fantasy 7 for PS4 even have a release date now can't wait.
This is hilarious. Their dominance this generation is just silly.
If Sony shows up or not is irrelevant. I will always be here ready to criticize everything they do.
We expect nothing less Colb.
lol and their presence was always felt Sony nice! Great job by Nintendo a reason to really watch e3! :) Doom eternal was awesome! Switch has a life full of games wow! :)
No sony No video games
you on your own
This e3 was weak sauce. I had more fun in the indy, third party and smaller gadget booths. I already know what coming, the 2 -3 hour lines for your typical AAA swag bs were nothing new. I hit a lot of the smaller devs/studios since they seemed really easy to set up appointments for this year. E3 is a huge departure to the E3 I started going to in 95, but whatever, if you want a developer conference go to GDC. E3 for some reason has gone all MTV with it's support for nitwits with a youtube or twitch channel prancing through the place in persona with "industry" credentials. Whateves. There was no reason for Sony to there here at all. Great move on their part.
Yeah I only believe in giving credit where credit is due. Sony did nothing this E3, they will not get any praise from me.
More proof E3 is on it's way out.
Sony keep doing your thang!!!
The best company of E3 2019.
Can't fuck up if you don't show up
when you are the leading platform for console gaming and you are not present at one of the industries biggest events you will be talked about .... So I don't see it should shock anyone they ranked 3rd most talked about. I mean a proper e3 rundown/discussion can't be had by not mentioning their absence can it?
people complained about Sony's style of presentation last year even though they showed amazing game play from The Last Of Us 2 and Ghost. NOW THEY SEE WHAT IT'S LIKE NOT HAVING A COMPANY WITH TRUE ARTISTIC VALUES NOT SHOWING UP. good on you Sony.
SONY + E3 = LIVE GAMEPLAY . You get the idea
Wow. It's kinda disgusting that 2005 is repeating itself with a whole new gen of gamers. Sony can just do whatever, no matter how lame it is for the gamers, and they are gods to their rabid fanbase. Go go $600 PS5! Ironically, I actually hope it *will* be $600, because then I know it'll have long-lasting hardware.
