As a huge Sony fan, it hurts to write this. I feel so sad that there is a pain in my stomach. THIS is what they put in theaters?! Littlebigplanet 3, Uncharted 4, The Order 1886, Bloodborne, and few other exclusives. That's it? The multi-platform variety wasn't much better. I was sad to see this depressing lineup. I was expecting one of the best E3s ever. What was missing? I'll tell you what I had hoped for.
First, I had expected a PS3/Vita price cut. It is high time for those. My PS3 broke. Even the used Gamestop prices are high. Vita is a fine handheld, but once again, too expensive. PS4 is still it's right price, but I had hoped for a $50 price cut to counter Microsoft. Nothing.
Now I must admit rumors had me excited. I shouldn't have put any hope in them. No Dark Cloud 3, Wild Arms 6, Legend of Dragoon 2, The Last Gaurdian, Battle Royale 2, Sly Cooper, Gran Turismo 7, etc. The best looking 3rd party game was Batman in my opinion, but that is on Xbox too. Where was Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts 3?! If they had shown FFXV alone, I would have been happy. No King of Fighters, Resident Evil, Soul Calibur, or Capcom Vs game? Street Fighter V would have been nice. Such a disappointing game lineup.
There was nothing there to make me want a PS4. I don't care about PS Now; I want to buy games, not stream them. There is a better lineup on Vita. At least it has some JRPG's and fighting games.
The most interesting thing to me was the Playstation TV. For $99 that's not bad. Otherwise Sony's show was saddening? I haven't watched the Microsoft conference, but I can't imagine it to be worse. At least they announced a price cut. I will watch it and Nintendo's presentation and I will rate the big 3 against each other. Maybe Nintendo will beat them all. :(
