Forums - Sony Discussion - Official Sony PlayStation E3 2018 Thread

I've just watched Nintendo streaming and that was like Smash streaming. I'm no smash player, so it felt like it was 90 minutes of boring stuff.



My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

My Game of the Year 2019: Death Stranding https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFHK9zXyXsw&feature=emb_logo

Cant wait of FF7 Remake/Last of Us 2/Ghost of Tsushima

For me, this E3 was the worst in recent memory. Maybe my expectations were too high but I think everybody besides Microsoft and Bethesda had better showings last year.

 

My personal ratings:

Microsoft: 9/10 - Conference setup and pace were close to perfect. We got a new Halo (even though that's probably a long way off), 3 Gears games and Forza Horizon 4. There were a lot of 3rd party games but I don't mind that when we're talking about games like Cyberpunk, Sekiro, Fallout 76, Metro Exodus, Tomb Raider, Devil May Cry 5, Dying Light 2 and Battlefield 5. Only thing missing was an exciting new IP or megaton revival like Perfect Dark or Fable.

Bethesda: 8/10 - Conference was held back by a dull rock concert and too many awkward pauses. Content was top notch though. Bethesda fans literally got everything. New chapters announced in Fallout, The Elder Scrolls, DOOM, Wolfenstein and Rage as well as an exciting new IP in Starfield. Better conference setup and more gameplay in general would've improved the rating.

Ubisoft: 7.5/10 - Conference was top notch but content was a little lacking. Maybe I'm just being spoiled but Ubisoft usually ends the conference by announcing either a big new IP or a megaton revival. I admire that they show so much gameplay but it mostly felt like updates for already announced or released games. If they hadn't leaked/shown The Division 2, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, The Crew 2 and Mario + Rabbids: Donkey Kong Adventures beforehand and had shown gameplay of Beyond Good & Evil 2, it would've been close to a 9/10 for me. With Splinter Cell or a big new IP on top would've made it a 10/10.

Sony: 7/10 - Conference was held back by weird setup and pace. They had the winning formula in 2015 and 2016 but for some reason decided to focus on very few games and unnecessary talks (without the actual developers). I really liked what I saw from TLOU2, Ghost, Spider-Man, Days Gone, Resident Evil 2, Control and Nioh 2 but what makes me primarily a PlayStation gamer is the variety of the (exclusive) library. Sony has so many varied games coming up but for some reason they only want to focus on their 3rd person action games. What about Spyro, MediEvil Remake, the secret Bluepoint game, Babylon's Fall, FF7 Remake, Shenmue 3, Yakuza 6, Ace Combat 7, Dead or Alive 6, GT Sport's Summer update, Concrete Genie, Blood and Truth, Déraciné, etc. If we had had less talk, more games and that 1 huge surprise (RE2 was already announced), the rating would've been better.

Nintendo: 5/10 - This could've been a Smash Bros. Direct. I liked the extensive look at Smash Bros. Ultimate. It really is shaping up to be the ultimate fighting game with a huge number of characters and details. With that said I'm somewhat disappointed that it's a port of Smash 4 with some extra content and updated graphics. Beside from Super Mario Party, we didn't really get anything new. If we'd seen anything from Pokémon 2019, Metroid Prime 4, Bayonetta 3, Shin Megami Tensei V, Yo-kai Watch 4, Good-Feel's new Yoshi game or Retro's new game, the rating would've easily been better.

Square Enix: 4/10 - My expectations were high for SE's conference because of their broad and varied library of both Japanese and Western games. I thought they would go all in and bring KH3, FF7 Remake, DQ XI, DQ Builders 2, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Just Cause 4, Life is Stange 2, The Avengers Project, Left Alive, and People Can Fly's AAA shooter but we only got 4 of those. Platinum's Babylon's Fall looked promising but it was the only new announcement. If they hadn't leaked/shown everything else beforehand, the rating would've been better.

EA: 3/10 - At this point, I don't even think EA is trying to cater to gamers. Their conferences feel like reruns with the same boring talk about this year's "revolutionary" sports titles. They sit on so many great IPs (rip C&C) and sometimes they even have the content to make an interesting show but.. they're just not capable of delivering. They're just a bunch of uncreative and investor-driven suits who invite indie developers in the hope of giving the show some kind of pulse and personality. As a huge fan of the Jedi Knight-series, I hope Respawn's Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order will be a worthy spiritual successor but I won't hold my breath. I know there are many fans of the sports titles and Battlefield, Anthem and the indie games could turn out worthwhile. Though in order to go higher than 3/10, EA would have to actually make an effort regarding the setup, pace and content of the conference.



I respect your opinion but the media is always criticising Sony for showing games that are too far from released so they decided to show games that are no more than 1 and a half year from release. I am with you that their pace was horrible but those were great games that people will buy and will move systems. 

Microsoft show was better but a lot of those games will be on PlayStation but yes they had a better presentation overall



Hmmm...I actually kind of liked Sony's press conference overall, tbh. Which is, you know, something rare for me to say. I'm usually more interested in smaller, independently-developed games and maybe one first-party release on a secondary level or something, but I like where Sony appears to be going in general right now.

With the new trailer, The Last of Us: Part II went from being a game that I was highly interested in to being I'd say honestly the most anticipated release ever for my part. I was drawn in from the second the trailer began and couldn't stop wanting to see more! Don't want to be dramatic, but I think TLOU2 is going to be a very emotional game for me.

I was also pleasantly surprised by the Death Stranding trailer! I mean definitely to a lesser degree (an order of magnitude really) than TLOU2, but still, where last year's Death Stranding trailer just seemed like utter nonsense, now it looks like there is actually some kind of coherent vision to it, though I can't yet adequately make out what it is obviously. It has some really weird quirks (the portable fetus / baby in a jar, is it?...weirded me out a little in particular; kinda took me out of the moment briefly), but I'm sensing that there's a heartfelt point to it all now. Or most of it at least. I really liked the ambience and the just general isolation type of feel to most of the trailer and the ghost mystery surrounding apparently the protagonist's deceased wife. (Maybe I'm interpreting the trailer wrong, but that's what it seemed like was going on to me.) I'm interested now, where I wasn't before!

I also liked the trailers for Control and Deracine as well (especially the latter), though a little less than what I saw of TLOU2 and Death Stranding.

I thought the way that they did the press conference -- the format -- was weeeiiirrdd, but, like with Nintendo's 2013-14 E3 events, weird isn't necessarily bad, IMO. It seemed like an intimate and heartfelt presentation! I liked it! I definitely liked it better than what I saw of Microsoft's, which seemed very corporate, traditional, buttoned-down, like 'we are the ESPN of video games!' anyway. It may be an unconventional opinion, but I liked that Sony decided to let their hair down a little. And they have the right focus for a games hardware + software company: games. Exclusive games. Not expensive future hardware (like Microsoft) or gimmicks (like Nintendo's Labo). First-party games. Many of which have not just fuuuuuuuuuun on offer, but actual stories too, it would very much appear.

QUALIFICATION: Have not seen Nintendo's show yet!

"The hero Sam is different than the heroes in other games. A hero is usually someone with special skills or someone with a military background. Sam not. He is more of a practitioner, someone with the knowledge of a worker - and that becomes clear once you control the game (and Sam) yourself."

Are people really trying to say Sony is sitting on their asses because of this? Really?
Just now they have 3 new big IPs in full development with a lot of gameplay shown and one looking better than the other (Days Gone, Dreams, Ghost of Tsushima).
Their other studios just came out from stuff as Horizon and God of War. Plus GT Sport that wasn't that hot. The others have announced sequels (Naughty Dog), collabs (Japan Studios) or in working stages of development. They also just got one of the most wonderful remakes ever released with Shadow of the Colossus contracted with Bluepoint. They even finished The Last Guardian.
They are working close with very talented people (Hideo Kojima) and studios (Insomniac) to bring high quality exclusives from outside too.
What fucking else do you guys expect them to announce at this point of time? (Aside of a dream like The Legend of Dragoon)
Sony is sitting on its ass? The PS4 is leaps and bounds better than the PS3 in every sense. Even than the PS2.
Get your act together.

Every sense? What about backwards compatibility?



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Sony's conference was pretty decent in my opinion... I mean sure, the banjo and flute guys were a bit weird, but I can see what they were going for, unfortunately it didn't work for them... but I was happy to see gameplay for The Last of Us 2 and more from Spider-Man (I didn't know we'd be seeing so many villains in the game), but Death Stranding, even with the gameplay and new trailer, remains an interesting mystery to me lol... Ghost of Tsushima though, damn it looked so good! I also recently just bought Nioh, so getting a Nioh 2 reveal was cool, and Control definitely looks like something I'd enjoy too!

... Also Sony had by far the best Kingdom Hearts III trailer, and that PS4 Pro looks amazing! :o



The conference was horrid. I really don't get why they said they were going to have a big dive on those 4 games? They showed the same content as they usually do in previous E3 regarding their 1st party games. I was expecting more gameplay explanation in Ghost of Tsushima and Death Stranding. But we got $hit and then, they only showed 5 or so 3rd party titles. That was so LAME! .

I was very disappointed, the pacing and how they structure the conference was so awful, specially the beginning with the dudes of the PSBlog. I was expecting THAT big dive to justify the new format; I wanted to see Kojima explaining the game after the trailer and give us more context at least.

Ghost of Tsushima and Spiderman were superb, those 2 along with the reveal of RE2 saved the conference from being and epic failure.
