Saveing some for other parts of the year...... could be a mistake by them?
Nah I think they'll be fine. The biggest problem for me was the games they showed didnt have a date. If they had done that for Days Gone, GOW and Spider-Man they would have won the show (and if they had added 3/4 from the pre-show it would have been a no contest)... but I've been reading EG's conference reports and now I see that perhaps the conference itself isnt as important as it should be.
1. You are trying to get as much press as possible over the course of E3 and not just a 1 hr show.
2. Sony have been doing a lot of live streaming of games.
3. They have a couple of other shows where they want to keep the hype up all year.
So now I start to realise that unfortunately the E3 show itself is less important to them as a strategy than perhaps it was, certainly helps when MS is looking alot weaker.
