They really shouldn't have focused so much on vr or at least mentioned beforehand that the the main focus would be vr. It would be like if Nintendo announced a direct and and didn't mention it was going to be focused on Indies beforehand, people would be pissed.

Nintendo should had told people that they showed a Labo on Nintendo Direct  last year.

I'm not sure what your point is?

Yep, that was the other time I felt this disappointed in a direct.

Sony shows a decent trailers, infos and gaming news and did a first trial of their own direct shows suddenly people calling Playstation is on doom situation. Sad sad people
If VR is not for you than is not Sony fault, i am into VR and love VR even tho i am playing less on it , i am looking a new way to play games and interactive games like this.

Yes agree so far their first direct shows is underwhelming but for a first attempt is good one, probably they will keep big games and big announcement close to E3.

I'm not interested in VR and I still thought it was a decent show, not amazing but not terrible either. I liked it and I'm looking forward to the next one, I agree that one around E3 makes sense, hopefully it includes Last of Us 2 release date for Fall 2019.

Labo has never been in a Nintendo Direct, they have all had their own seperate announcement.

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.

I think these last 7 months will be the peak for PSVR1 performance as a lot came together with Astro Bot receiving high praise from everywhere, Beat Saber releasing, bundles at $199, holidays etc etc. hopefully it can keep a pretty steady pace into the next gen and I expect PS5 to be compatible with it. PSVR2 probably will come 1-2y after that and hopefully will be able to display PSVR1 games aswell.

Sure  It might start to decline from here but I was just showing that the current trend is upward while he was saying it's likely declining.

*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.

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

I didn't see that. My bad.

I swear if Sony keeps doing like this, their position in the market will be endangered.

please, do tell how so.

I'd love to, but I don't have to explain myself to you.

If you are saying Sony should have told people that they will shows VR stuff, then Nintendo should have told people on last year nindi Direct that they will shows Labo

Did they?  what i know they shows Labo on Nindy Direct last year. And many fans are disappointed.  



After giving the Sony direct a little more thought, Im lowering my score to 1.5/10.

They really need to step up their game.
