They said.

They did not have PSX and will not have E3 and the reason for that was they were looking for new ways to interact with their costumers, which was this, and this was horrible.

They are literally skipping two major conferences to present us their updates in this new format, and the very first one already felt useless, why would I want to watch this kind of borefest and not an actually good presented video/trailer of any of those games?

Want to update me on PS stuff at least save it for when you have big updates to show, as big games release date, announcements, sales milestones, product pricedrops, damn even if they used that to announce PSN discounts it would make more sense then just that.

Sure, but in reference to E3 being cancelled.

The format of trailer after trailer is pretty much what Sony has turned their conferences into. Ppl on forums complained having ppl come on stage and talking. Maybe it was a reaction, maybe it wasnt. But here we go: just games at a steady pace.

As for the lack of a big announcement, I am not sure what to tell you buddy except that you let your own expectations of 'LoD incoming?' get the best of you. PSX2018 was cancelled because they didnt have enough content for them to have a conference. You think that less than 4 months later they magically have big announcements to make on a streaming show they haven't utilised for quite some time? Get real. 

They show can improve. There are definitely issues with it that can be sorted out quite easily going forward.

And no, your suggestion of PSN discounts doesn't make much sense since its pretty obvious that playstation owners engage with that news in a high enough capacity as it is already presented: PS blog and the PS store. 

The problem was not the format or presentation, it was the content, or the lack of it.

They had no real reason to do that as it was, it was pathetic, or are you gonna tell me they need to mark a day and hour to show me that bland Iron Man VR game? Days Gone 15th trailer? A MK character?

If they are going to do this they need to do this when they have a reason to do this. If they had given say Death Stranding a release windown, that would already be something actually interesting and gather my attention. And its they major exclusive I'm least interested into by far.

If they are skipping two major conferences in a row of course they have to show us a big announcement too, even if I was completely not expecting it at all right now, they'll have to, eventually.

Even that quick Persona 5 The Royal teaser was miles more impactant than this whole State of Play thing.

They make me feel like not caring to watch the next when they mark it, and if they go and announce something big there and I miss it and get spoiled, then I'll get mad.

They have to set this right, do it when they have a reason to do it, and if it's as irrelevant as this it could very well be something weekly/monthly where PSN discounts and new releases announcements would make sense.

I'm giving them one more chance and that's it, if it's this bad again they have lost me, I'm lot making room to watch it when they release it for random irrelevant stuff like this. Not really.

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. 

Do you have a link for this? I don't remember this happening. If true then yeah I agree they should have mentioned that labo would be a big focus.

This is so bizarre. You are this upset over a 20 minute presentation. A presentation that spent less than 2 minutes on average on each game shown.

Again, how can you even phantom that big announcements are going to take place this soon if they skipped PSX because of not having stuff to show? There are still future broadcasts coming, so something closer to E3 (but more importantly after Days Gone has released) will have something that is 'big'.

Do you really think Sony have a bunch of PS4 exclusives hiding away? Don't you think that they wanted to make sure that games releasing soon (especially Days Gone) got the social media attention over a brand new announcement? Days Gone is their next game and they will want all Sony talk centred on that as much as possible. So another reason why a big announcement was never going to happen. Death Stranding launch date just makes the event about Death Stranding. Now we have ppl talking about Sony's VR support, saying how thew new Concrete Genie trailer has won them over, and the Days Gone trailer looking solid. The stuff that is coming out sooner is being talked about. 

At the end of the day you are just upset that the conference didnt have any games that spoke to you, which is a fair point to have but you argue as if that isn't the reason why the event was bad when clearly it is. 



OMG, it was the VR State OF Play



I feel like people are going a bit overboard with criticizing this. I think in terms of pacing it was quite good. I feel like the first one of these should have had one big announcement.

Most people just said they were disappointed and got attacked for it. It happens if you criticize any of these kinda things.



Hot take: I think Sony will be fine, regardless of what happened with the first State of Play.

Yea, I think the criticism is a bit too much. It's the first SOP. As I mentioned before, the first Nintendo Direct didn't really make that many waves beyond a "What's wrong with you?" meme. And I think Nintendo themselves did not necessarily intended for directs to be what they are today. It was a small communication tool that evolved over time into 20-30 minute events of showcasing new announcements/updates for upcoming and current games.

But as I also mentioned before, what made the directs endearing was Iwata and Co. being present and talking about the games, creating a relationship between the consumers and developers that has not been shown before.



That livestream proved that they are saving all their content for the PS5.

I hope they have lots of games ready for the PS5 reveal/the launch year beyond PS5 versions of 2019/2020 PS4 games.



I was pleasantly surprised with the showing and really liked the quick slick format, personal stuff would be good but I liked the narrator she did well. I should point out I seem to be one of the few who stays up to date and knew this was going to be mostly about PSVR and I also have one so this was very much for people like me.
FNAF VR and NMS VR look pretty cool also that Ready Set Heros looks right up my alley.
