Forums - Sony Discussion - Sony State Of Play - Iron Man VR, No Manís Sky VR, Days Gone Update

I enjoyed the show, even though I personally wasn't interested in the titles. The format was good, and I liked the presenter. She did a good job.

I do think this being their first SOP they probably should have kicked it off with something a bit more impactful.
I'm guessing they'll do that around the time of E3 instead.
But this was probably interesting for VR fans.

Concrete Genie piqued my interest a little, but I'd like to see more from it.
The MK trailer was pretty nice too.

All I can say lol.



Liberate Hong Kong, the revolution of our times!

That had a disturbing amount of VR in it. I hope their future updates don't have this much VR. If Sony really is committing this heavily to VR, then I fear for their future.

Future updates will probably have that much VR. 

But it's not because Sony is commiting to VR .

It's because they are commiting to PS5, which they are waiting to announce.  Most of the VR titles are small fun projects at the end of the gen.  Big non-VR games that are being developed right now are largely going towards PS5. Just watch, next E3, there will be hardly any VR.

Loved the CTR trailer, probably my most hyped game of the year!

Some nice PS VR announcements and a good trailer for Days Gone, why are so many people disappointed? It was very clear that there would be no big AAA news. The only disappointing thing would be no news about Death Stranding because that game was teased to be there.

Where did they make that clear at? 

Seemed fairly obvious to me considering all the signs of Sony dropping their EU conferences and PSX last year,  and doing E3 this year. Also, there are multiple of these for the year.

Did someone honestly think this was a good way go start a new program that is supposed to replace some of Sony's biggest conferences?
That was a massive letdown, pretty bad way to kick off this new model Sony, really bad.

Who said it was a replacement? It's just an alternative and expecting it to be more than that right now is pretty absurd.

Lol, comments like this are so out of touch.  Vr is one of Sony's main pillars.  The announcement of this programme literally told you to expect VR content old and new.

Maybe Sony needs to set the correct expectations for these direct. Even MS lets you know theirs will be indie games so people do not expect some megaton stuff.

Or maybe forum ppl, who are usually uptodate on the industry,  should be able to tell that big announcements from Sony for the rest of this gen are going to be quite minimal. 

That said,  format and pacing were fine.  It could use some creativity to personalize the show a bit more.  Honestly the lack of MLB was the weirdest thing. And not highlighting upcoming ps4 exclusives was strange.

sounds fun tho I expect usual complaining after it about it being underwhelming because gamers love complaining

Damn, you called that one, lol.

Remember a couple E3s ago when Sony announced a pile of upcoming PS Vita games, and that was pretty much the last time they spoke about it?

I'm getting the same vibe about all of those VR announcements.

*Sony shows lots of new VR stuff*

VR sCePtIcS "hah, another sign that VR is dead"

*Sony shows lots of new Vita stuff*

Vita sCePtIcS "hah, another sign that Vita is dead"

.... ohh wait...

Not a VR skeptic, thanks. I just believe that VR won't ever be more than a niche product with a loyal fan base that feverishly defends it. It's not skepticism to recognize that Sony missed yet another golden opportunity to announce PS VR's overall sales, and instead decided not to, which likely means that it hasn't surpassed 4 million in sales yet, which indicates that PSVR sales are already slowing -  just like the Vita was when Sony announced around a dozen vita titles at E3 that year.

But hey, please feel free to mock and deride anyone that isn't a diehard VR fan, as if that doesn't support my opinion.

They just announced today that it sold 4.2 million.

Feb 2017-915k

Dec 2017-2 million (~1.1m in 10 months)

August 2018-3 million (1m in 8 months)

March 2019-4.2 million (1.2m in 7 months)

Looks like sales are picking up.

Edit: overall I agree with you though, it will remain a relatively niche accessory with a loyal fanbase.

But it is over 4 million alreqdy



I thought it was pretty good, pacing was great and showed off a bunch of neat games. No megatons but that's ok, it's the first one and they are just testing the waters.
