I don't think Sony's E3 2015 presentation is going to be topped anytime soon. It brought three games onstage with mythical status -- The Last Guardian, FFVII Remake, and Shenmue 3, revealed Horizon Zero Dawn, and presented the first ever Uncharted 4 setpiece to the public. It also produced the best audience reactions in E3 history.

It's arguably the best E3 conference ever.

The only thing I can imagine, that could even come close to the public reaction of the FFVII remake is a Half-Life 3 announcement. If it ever happens, chances are it won't happen at a Sony conference. So yeah 2015 is probably not gonna get beaten in the perception of the general public for a long time.

The amazing thing is that Sony also followed it up with the 2016 conference, which was incredibly packed as well: God of War, Days Gone, Resident Evil VII, Death Stranding and Spider-Man got announced in that conference.

Do you honestly think that they can't top themselves by showing the system, then showing the games they have planned for that system?

Would think a Resistance, Gravity Rush or Infamous squeal/reboot announcement would be mike drop moments.

Personally, would love to see a space or flight sim along the lines of that Warhawk first promised to be.

Those three games announced during that E3 conference were on a completely different level though -- a long awaited game from the creator of SoTC, one of the most beloved games of all time, a remake of PS1's killer app and the game that popularized the JRPG genre in the west, and the continuation to a franchise long thought to be dead -- the series which established a lot of open world conventions that are still being used today.

None of the games you mentioned come even close to the greatness of those three and it would take the likes of Half-Life 3 being announced in a future conference along with other mind-blowing surprises to surpass it.

The GAMES will be the true spotlight!

Resistence? Too Soon
Gravity Rush 3? Unlikely after disappointing sales of Gravity Rush 2
Infamous? Unlikely since SP is working around the clock with GoT for PS4

A new game announcement from Guerrilla is more likely, be that a new Killzone or Horizon sequels will be awesome
Maybe Sony announce that they´ve acquired Housemarque since they´re working on a new unannounced AAA game
Santa Monica also may announce their next project
It would be nice if Japan Studio announce Demon Souls 2 or Bloodborne 2 games, but i doubt that they can handle those projects without From Software´s help. May they will announce some small A or AA title.

Nothing can beat Nintendo on public reactions! Period!

That type of thinking is called delusional.

Great E3 for sure but I liked 2016 better myself.

OB1Biker153d ago

2016 was objectively better when you disregard fanaticism for one or another particular franchise.

I was in the theaters for the PS E3 Experience, and that show had people pumped. Theater was electric with excitement with people cheering and with some, jumping out of their seats yelling in excitement.

I personally think the PS5 reveal will be closer to the PS3 announcement conference, but less focus on the new features, since they already announced many of them. But I think it'll show off more ways the new tech will make games better, instead of talking about them. Maybe show off any new features that they're working on to enhance the user experience....like share play on the last conference.

E3 of 2020 will probably be a strong showing of games.

S2Killinit154d ago

That was a memorable E3 for sure. But a PS5 reveal will be epic for me.

sprinterboy152d ago

Seeing the new console and price fir the 1st time followed by gameplay trailers is super exciting, even for a 44 yr old gamer 😊

S2Killinit152d ago

You know what im talking about. The “launch” is one of the best parts of gaming.

UnbreakableAlex154d ago

Yes, Shenmue 3, FF VII & Beyond Good & Evil 2. What a great day :) I started to be a gamer again because of those announcements.

My response:
You use punctuation and capitalization in a ridiculous manner. To move beyond that, it is a pretty safe bet to say that the PS5 reveal is going be a very exciting event.

We know the quality of the PlayStation exclusives, and that there will be plenty more to come from the studios that have produced them. Add to that the fact that PlayStation has the largest user base by far, and that those people can't wait to see what's next and you can pretty much guarantee that the event will be filled with energy. Electric even. Some may even say, "insane".

MasterCornholio153d ago

So Sony is going to half ass a console reveal?

That's what your saying right?

I don't think theres anything wrong with being excited for the reveal of new hardware. Im pretty sure Sony will have a big reveal for it since they had big reveals for pretty much any PlayStation that came before it. Whether or not the content of the event will suit your tastes is another question.

The_Sage154d ago

I don't think I disagree with anything in the article. You play your cards close to the vest especially when you have a great hand to play.

Silly Mammo154d ago

Please announce a sequel to The Order for the PS5. Please please please...

The_Sage154d ago

Yes! Please please please.
