So i watched the show. Is it just me or did it feel like a PSVR marketing push?
They have a console with 90m sold and they chose to market there 4m sold accessorie? Very strange move. I would be more forgiving if they were saving everything for E3..
Both MS and Sony need more work when it comes to these directs. Only reason i forgave MS for there last show was due to there upcoming E3 conference.

6 of the 10 games focussed on were not VR.

11 minutes of the 19.30 minute show was on non-VR games.

They've sold 1.2 milliom units in the last 6 or 7 months.

They arent saving anything, this show is just an additional way to communicate with fans (outside of youtube uploads and blog posts, and whenever they do a conference)

Did you enjoy the show? If you could change anything what would you change?

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

Damn, you called that one, lol.

Happens it all the time with nintendo directs and recently happened with that event Microsoft had last year(which I enjoyed just as I enjoyed this)

I thought it was alright. It was just shy of 20 minutes, and moved at a brisk pace. It could use some work

I am not sure if I would change anything as much as I would add to the show:

-announce the time length beforehand (like Nintendo does)

-include a gameplay segment (3 - 5 mins depending on the game)

-include a developer insight vid (3 mins max) - maybe like a studio tour, or the day in the life of an concept artist or something.

-give the show a little more unique personality I suppose

oh... show off all PS4 exclusives. EDF releases soon worldwide on PS4 only, MLB released the day of the event. just show these off i feel even if for like 30 seconds

what do you think?

Fair enough, I think a lot of the things you pointed out would be good benefits to the show. 

For me what frustrated me more was the VR taking up majority of the show.. Now I know you will say its a small event, but when you have a PS event and you know majority of your customers don't own a accessory it isn't exactly going to be wise feedback when its a show that had to be streamed live. Something like this could have been a YouTube event that people have the options to watch rather than trying to stick them around for the stream to watch 6 out of 10 VR games.

Another thing is why not show something that there main customers want, where was Concrete Genie or Dreams? Events like these would have been great showcases for the smaller games rather than Days Gone which has already enough trailers and gameplay footage.

Other than that, its a small show and I am sure the next one will be better. Its just a shame because there skipping E3 so its hard to forgive them on this when there not exactly saving anything for E3. But that's just my thoughts on it.

The next one certainly can't be any worse.

They did show off Concrete Genie.  They had like a 3 minute story trailer for it.

Well only 3 minutes of it.. for a game that would raise more interests than majority of the VR games which will only appeal to a niche market. They could have shown something from FF7 Remake, Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, Dreams or more of Concrete Genie but honestly.. to base a show on a niche market only upsets the masses and that's basically what happened here.

BTW Where is Dreams? Isn't that coming soon? Why is there so much silence on that game? State of Play would have been a perfect event to showcase more on Dreams, maybe even show more about the devs behind the game etc.

the early access version (creation tools only) of Dreams will launch on April the 16th for 30$/€, but will be sold in limited numbers (ppl estimate between 50-100k)

this version will upgrade to the full version on the real launch day
