Sony Brought Its PlayStation A-Game Today

Today's PS5 showcase stood above other summer events

The story is too old to be commented.
LucasRuinedChildhood47d ago (Edited 47d ago )

Despite some issues (too much third party stuff), it's the only gaming press conference this year that brought any huge hype. E3 was quite poor and lacked any megatons.

Wolverine, Spider-Man 2, Ragnorok and KOTOR brought the hype. GT7 looks pretty good as well.

blackblades47d ago

To bad the people on the internet can't just enjoy but instead sit there and troll and try to trigger people with bull. This day and age you get shot for that or whatever.

EvertonFC47d ago

Sadly gamers want everything now and for free

SullysCigar47d ago

I thought they nailed it - really solid show. Very possibly they best single showing this year, which has obviously been impacted in terms of planned output throughout the industry.

I'm pumped for a bunch of the games they showed, both exclusives and multiplatforms.

Krog01147d ago (Edited 47d ago )

I think this was the best conference. But they were very weird about what was exclusive, timed or 3rd party. All trailers just said PS5 or PS4/PS5.

There are a couple things shown that I am sure cannot be exclusive, but appear like they are, and maybe they are.

Regardless, the things we saw and know are exclusive are seriously impressive. Wolverine, SM2, God of War, KOTOR remake, horizon FW (not shown but coming damn soon) and Forspoken looked awesome too. I do wonder on some of the dates for what was shown though.

darthv7246d ago (Edited 46d ago )

The highlights from shows of the year so far (for me) have been the announcements of spider man 2 and wolverine as well as remake of KOTOR and then of course the halo infinite series x console. SM2 we sort of knew it was going to be announced at some point but those other three... totally out of nowhere.

The final 10 minutes or so were great. Really exciting. But the rest of the show was just ok. Not bad by any means, but it was just a lot of 3rd party stuff that we knew about already. Overall it was a good show, but it would have been much stronger if they trimmed some of the fat.

LucasRuinedChildhood47d ago (Edited 47d ago )

I do agree that the rest of the presentation was just okay like a lot of other presentations this year, but yeah, at least we got some "Oh S***" moments towards the end once it was all Sony games.

I have a feeling we'll see Factions by the end of the year as well.

goldwyncq47d ago

Nah, aside from the last ten minutes the rest was just plain awful. They're either remasters of age-old games or stuff we've already seen before.

alb189947d ago (Edited 47d ago )

Come on, Regnorok is giving hype like 4 years in a row. SONY knows how to milk a game without release it. They showed the title and just showing the title SONY won that E3 hahaha, fan boys act as it was a surprise another God of War, two years later they showed a date of release and fanboys almost lost their minds. 4 years later they give us a delay that everyone knew and after miss all the games shows they give their own show with finally the gameplay of Regnorok which is nothing much different from the last god of war but that is good for me have to say.
Imsomniac was the only surprise and Wolverine hasn't gameplay but I have good hopes. The Spiderman saga is a good thing too.
Gt7 is just another milky title to make the gameshow looks full but it wasn't.

LucasRuinedChildhood47d ago (Edited 47d ago )

Lad, what is this comment?

GT7 and Ragnorok were announced last year at the PS5 reveal.

"Come on, Regnorok is giving hype like 4 years in a row." GOW (2018) only came out 3 years ago and Ragnorok's existence was only revealed less than 12 months ago. What are you talking about?

SullysCigar47d ago

Your misinformation just reeks of bitterness. Just get a PlayStation, you're missing out!

alb189947d ago

I said (LIKE 4 years) showing that I wasn't sure. It isn't less true because you said 3 years.
You will be seen a piece of gt7 every show, every year for next 3 years.

LucasRuinedChildhood47d ago (Edited 47d ago )

"You will be seen a piece of gt7 every show, every year for next 3 years."

GT7 is releasing March 4, 2022.

No need to wait until 2025 unless you're waiting for a steep discount. lol

alb189947d ago

Really after all this years experience you can talk about date of release for GT7?
Come on!!!

alb189947d ago

Sully's Cigar, I always buy all consoles.

Knushwood Butt47d ago

Still playing GT Sport to this day.

F**** has never swayed me. In fact, there's a chance I may buy the PS5 version of Asseto Corsa Comp next Feb.

Not gonna lie, I have to agree with you. The only 1up was wolverine

Phoenix7647d ago

And? MS dropped trailer for halo years back. How long has everyone been waiting for that? while they plug it at every opportunity they get?
All companies do this now. Give you a tiny teaser, then drip feed us for half a decade. Nothing new. Sony just done the same with Ragnarok

Disagree greatly. I don't mind that they showed 3rd party. Are we not going to play them or don't want to know about them just because they're 3rd party? Also E3 was great imo.

LucasRuinedChildhood47d ago (Edited 47d ago )

I suppose the issue for some of the third party games is just overexposure. Deathloop (already had a dedicated State Of Play), GTA5, Guardians of the Galaxy and Rainbow Six Extraction would be good examples of that.

Games like Forspoken, Project Eve, and Wonderlands were a better fit. We've seen limited or no gameplay of those games (Project Eve was just newly announced).

NeoGamer23246d ago (Edited 46d ago )

Wolverine no gameplay
KOTOR, again no gameplay.
Spider-man 2 next to zero gameplay(Might have actually been only cutscenes).
GT7 - 30 seconds of actual gameplay, rest was menu features and car lust.
Ragnorok. That hyped me with real gameplay.
Horizon Forbidden West state-of-play earlier this summer. I am hyped!

The things that have me super hyped right now is Forza Horizon 5, Horizon Forbidden West, and God of War Ragnorok.

Deathloop is also starting to grow on me each time I see it.

GT7 and Halo is interesting. I hope they live up to their franchise history.

Flewid63846d ago

The third party stuff was good too. Games are games dude. lol.

Neonridr46d ago

I just hope the bulk of those are next gen only.

LucasRuinedChildhood46d ago (Edited 46d ago )

Spider-Man 2 is for 2023, and Wolverine will be after that, so I assume they will be PS5 only. Maybe I'm being a bit naive though.

It would be pretty bad if we're still getting cross gen games at that point. They were mostly gone after around 2 years for the PS4 (MGS5 is the last non sports one I remember). I hope GOW2 is the last one this gen.

Neonridr43d ago

@Lucas - agree fully. I'm excited to see what true next-gen Sony games are going to look like when they are built from the ground up for the PS5 only. So exciting to think about.

Only Sony event brings the hype up to this point this year.
Both Microsoft and Nintendo is really not doing anything exciting games wise.
This event great despite few 3rd party stall the flow a bit especially the cash grab that is GTA V that extra few minutes could have gone for another 1st party announcement.
Still very hyped and I'm still watching GT7 trailer on repeat.

Activision47d ago

PlayStation has Wolverine, while Xbox Series has Indiana Jones

Extermin8or3_47d ago

No news on if that Is actually exclusive. After all that deal was made before Bethesda got purchased.

alb189947d ago (Edited 47d ago )

Yeah because
Indiana Jones
Forza Horizon 5
Halo Infinite
The Elder Scroll 6
Forza Motorsport
The Outer World 2
Perfect Dark
And Hellblade 2
isn't enough to give hype. All coming to Gamepass. Yep, just Sony is bringing hype jajajaja!

boing147d ago

I see only Halo and Forza, with strong maybe for Hellblade 2 and Fable. And I would still exchange them for Wolverine and Spider-man in a blink of an eye.

Bennibop47d ago

That's a great list but the issue is that in alot of cases these games are years away.


He's right though. Microsoft has a lot of exciting games announced although release dates for a lot of the heavy hitters are up in the air still. I'm actually surprised how little Sony showed considering what Microsoft has announced. I really expected more from Sony. Insomniac bailed them out at the show.

alb189947d ago

It seems that you didn't read enough. I'm responding to someone who said that only SONY is giving hype. Read again my friend.

WillyC00947d ago

This clowns hypocrisy is hilarious. Keep up the good fight dude. You’re really making a difference for the Xbox brand hahaha

SlothLordPootus47d ago (Edited 47d ago )

I have to say no company has absolutely wowed me this year. I'm incredibly excited for Ragnarok and Ghostwire because we saw gameplay, but all others are just wait and see. Just like with PS, most of those Xbox games you listed are years out still. All companies need to stop teasing projects so early. Yes 2024 could be a good year for gaming, but show me what's coming out in the next 6-12 months and focus on that instead.

alb189947d ago

Chinchilla, i never said that XBOX hasn't milky titles, what are you talking about?
Halo Infinite is a milky title.
But if you saw MS E3 you realize that there were no Fable, or Avawed, or Hellblade 2. They actually just showed games that has released date been the best Forza Horizon 5 Wich is coming November 9 and Halo Infinite December 8. Even Starfield has date of release.

Flewid63846d ago (Edited 46d ago )

I have GamePass for PC.....not one of those games interests me.

Hellblade was ok, but bogged down by too much glyph/puzzle shit. If the sequel is more combat & action heavy I'll probably try it but for such a long list, one game isnt enough to shell out more than $5 for a month of GamePass.

There isn't a single Bethesda game I've ever wanted. Ever.

Chevalier46d ago

More than half that list are years away. Also there would be more hype if they showed gameplay instead of CG trailers

Hamzilla7746d ago

And I don't see Final Fantasy 7 Remake on there. Pitty

Hamzilla7746d ago

So I gotta ask what's alb stand for? a loser baby?

CaptainHenry91646d ago (Edited 46d ago )

The only one I'm interested in is Elder Scrolls 6 and Outerworlds 2. *Most* of these games are years away like around late 2023 to late 2024. I'm doing a wait and see approach with most of them including Halo Infinite. Hellblade 2 is still in Pre-production stage.

"Insomniac bailed them out at the show."

Yup a Sony first party studio bailed them out at the show. That's what a first party studio is supposed to do since they work for Sony

Sarcasm46d ago

Cool you can sleep at night now.

Or... You could just be a regular person and enjoy all those games while also playing whatever Sony has to offer. Because *Gasp* you have a choice.

Unless you're a broke kid that can't afford multiple consoles, then my bad

Showing was a C+

Above average showing, but nothing really wowed me. It just seems that Sony are releasing the same games over and over again...

EDIT: blackblades gor offended with the word conference

blackblades47d ago

It wasnt a conference it was a showing do you even know what conference is.

darkrider47d ago

Dude, I don't know what platform you play. But I hope it's not what I'm thinking. Because if it is....

You had me at summit 🤣🤣🤣

darkrider46d ago

Vrooom, Vrooom and tatatatatata

JustTheFax47d ago

Yup, a bunch of sequels and a remake. And they make fun of the xbox fanboys for "forza, halo, gears of war!!!"

F0XH0UND92246d ago

"a bunch of sequels"


Horizon 2


JustTheFax46d ago

@F0XH0UND922 You conveniently left out Gran Turismo and Spiderman. Are all those not sequels? I am not sure what you are trying to say? I never said they couldn't or shouldn't make sequels, just pointing out the hypocrisy. 😘

VariantAEC45d ago

The longest running PS exclusive franchise of all the ones shown is Gran Turismo which is releasing their 7th game in the mainline series which dates back to 1998 on PlayStation (1994). God of War dates back to the mid-late PS2 era while Marvel's Spider-Man is arguably the best Spider-Man game I've played (I have Miles Morales for PS5... but no PS5 and I'm not going to buy the PS4 version it's part of a pre-order gone wrong due to limited PS5 stock) and Horizon which has only had one game and got its start in the mid PS4 generation.

Halo is or is almost 20 now Gears of War is nearly 16 Forza is or is nearly 16 too Fable is also pretty old coming out first on 360 if memory serves.

Great games on show multiplat and Exclusives Tokyo ghostwire looked ace

SullysCigar47d ago

I liked that too. I'm hoping to play it on PSVR2, as Sony have said you'll be able to play many regular games and GW:T seems a perfect fit to me.

garos8247d ago

the lack of PS5 EXCLUSIVES on the immediate horizon is annoying to be honest. Some decent showings for sure. Very interested in project eve and forspoken and of course the offerings from 1st party (wolverine/SM2/GOW/ GT7)

Extermin8or3_47d ago

Erm what? We have death loop, horizon forbidden West, forspoken, gt7 and Kent Bridge of spirits just the ones I can think of off top of my head within the next y months. Then we still have God of war, spiderman 2 and ff16 over the 12 months or so following the others. This is assuming Sony reveal nothing else due to release sooner.

garos8247d ago

another person who cant read. what part of EXCLUSIVES dont you understand? i even wrote it in capitals. Spider man 2 is 2023 so you obviously missed that point too (not suprising since youve proven already not to be able to read). The only one you are right about is ff16

EvertonFC47d ago (Edited 47d ago )

We've had returnal, sackboy, DS, Spiderman, ratchet, Kena and deathloop this year and GoW, hzd2, GT7, forspoken to name just a few for 2022, 2023 is gonna be even more insane too.
I think your in the wrong hobby buddy.

garos8247d ago

can you read? i said PS5 exclusives! and im not talking about what weve had (ive got all those anyways) Im talking for truly next gen experiences and yes i am in the right hobby. i know what i like and what i want. if you are happy with botched down cross gen games, more power to you, my post is about TRULY next gen shit. give me more returnal , demon souls please and let the shackles of ps4 loose

Bennibop47d ago

You forgot F.I.S.T which launched last week.

darkrider47d ago

It would be a problem if Sony didn't had exclusives for 8 or 9 months after the launch.... Not 1 or 2 months

JustTheFax47d ago

You got the "can't read" cult out defending today 😂
