What a dumb take.

That said, i do think MS's Scarlett info drop looked silly after Sony's PS5 announcement. I'd wager the next gen conversation is with Sony atm.

Personally, I agree with the take.  Sony will see more buzz and sales this year than MS, even though they didn't show up to E3.  There are many more ways to reach your consumers now.

I do agree with your last statement, though.  MS just repeated the same info Sony did, but put on an expensive E3 show to do it.  It all just seemed like they were playing catch up, again.  The reveal vid wasn't the greatest, either. Just compare it to the PS4 reveal trailer, which went viral for like a week or so, and now has over 35M views.  It's been two days and the Scarlett reveal trailer is at 1.39M views.  Not generating much hype with that one.

If they wanted to wow people, it should have been a full reveal.  I mean, what do they have to lose.  XBO sales are in the crapper, even with it being effectively $199.  They might as well get people pumped for next gen.  I still think it's odd they didn't at least announce the Tflops, like they did with the X.  My guess is they aren't 100% sure they are beating Sony next gen.

I think alot of you dont understand the importance of marketing and publicly. Cyberpunk has just been heavily marketed on X1 which is generating buzz for Xbox not PS4 eithen through we know its coming to PS4. The fact Sony wasnt there to show it off benefits there opposition, just like how Destiny and COD were marketed for PS4.
FF7 is also coming to other platforms same as Cyberpunk so if thats a win for Sony than its a win for PC since thats getting everything aswell.

Of course Sony are going to announce system sales etc. Heck Xboxs event was finished days ago and there still making announcements like that.

I think this entire thread is reaching thinking Square a company Sony doesnt own and FF7 a game Sony doesnt own or make is a win. Not being at E3 would be due to other reasons.

5o say Sony has a great E3 showing because of Square is.. well facepalming in my book.

Yeah but since its timed exclusive, theres gonna be a half-year to a year wait before you ll see it other places.

And I bet Cyberpunk still ends up selling twice as much on playstation 4, as it does on xbox one.
also cyberpunk isnt a timed exclusive to xbox, it ll release day and date along side the PS4 version.

The same isnt true for Final Fantasy 7 Remake, so its not "the same" situtation, as you claimed above.

This.  Really, I can't recall the last time MS paying for advertising actually helped them sell more copies than the PS4.  Or really boost HW sales all that much either.

Oh cool, there’s a thread on Resetera making fun of some shitty fluff piece from PushSquare and lots of posters were comparing it to “that awful Engadget article” and I didn’t know what they were talking about.

The summary in the OP does make the article sound terrible, but tagging for later reading. I was wondering how long it would take for people to start spinning the absence as a positive lol

People need to stop thinking this is all about Xbox trying to outsell PS. Its about Xbox trying to sell more consoles and games. PS4 doesnt need marketing to outsell the X1, the generation has already spoken. PS4 will outsell the X1 even with anti consumer practises and censorship etc. They could release mediocre games and still outsell the X1. Its a sad reality.

Xbox need E3 to recreate there brand where as PS doesnt. Having marketing rights wont affect Sony but it will help Xbox.

I guess it's good that Sony feels the need to release quality titles. Something Xbox should definitely try to do more of if they wish to improve their situation next gen.

Not sure what anti-consumer practises you speak of. I'm guessing it's something subjective that not all obviously agree with you on.

I was referring to anti-consumer practices like not allowing cross play or making it harder for devs to allow it, censoring games and locking Fortnite accounts etc. It doesn't matter what Sony do this gen, they will continue to outsell the competition even if they make mediocre games. 

Yes we want all brands to continue to make good games. MS have afew good games due this year like Gears 5, Minecraft Dungeons, and Horizon Lego DLC. They also released SOD2 DLC recently etc. Soon Halo Reach Remaster and MCC on PC and Battletoads.

Sorry i got alittle carried away there. X1 still won't outsell PS4 however the support and games are there.

I imagine what mediocre game is selling great on PS compared to the quality title of Xbox
