So this is gonna come out only 2 weeks before FFVII remake, and a month and a half later we are gonna get Cyberpunk, but Sony has nothing for this holiday season...Other than, I dont know, Death Stranding?

Call of Duty marketing, Medievil and Death Stranding is more than enough, we had some brilliant games this year and will have more in October and November.

Yep. I'm waiting for FF7 to fully release before I even start that. Cyber Punk is just far enough away that I can finish TLOU2. I'll be taking some days off.

Joel!!! 2020 is gonna be epic.

Is it just the State of Play trailer today, then? Earlier teases made it sound like it was gonna get its own live event or something. EDIT: Nvm.

Joel is Dead. Figment of her imagination.



Looks like we'll be fighting infected, Seraphites, bandits and some paramilitary group.

I don't know. Why would she remember him looking worse than in the first game? He looks really beat down here.

Isn't that nice, to feel that everything you're looking foward to is gonna get crushed into this tiny period where if they overlap each other, you'll be forced to binge most of them ?

Although, I think that February to March period has become a synonym to blockbuster these last years.

This makes me think either PS5 is coming well before Nov 2020, or that a Nov 2020 launch is going to have sufficient new first party titles and won't really require relying on games like TLOU2 to push early sales.

The new trailer looks sooo darn good and leaves me wanting more. A lengthy, well written, in depth story is exactly what I needed to hear.



The Canadian National Anthem According To Justin Trudeau

 

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

Is PS4 about to have the greatest last year for a console ever? Considering PS5 comes out in November next year, we have:
November: Death Stranding
February: The Last of Us Part II
March: Final Fantasy VII Remake
April: Cyberpunk 2077
June: Elden Ring
Ghost of Tsushima (I'd guess maybe August/September)

That's a half dozen potential GOTG contenders, certainly will be up there in the top 10-15 games of the generation atleast along with RDR2, BOTW, God of War, Witcher 3, Bloodborne.

Why is this even a thing? The games Sony has announced for PS4 are for the PS4, you'll be able to play them on PS5 through BC but Sony's not gonna use these to sell PS5s.

Horizon Zero Dawn came out in early 2017, when PS5 comes out next year it will have been almost 4 years, GG can certainly have a sequel ready in that time if they made the first one in 5 years. Not to mention by all accounts the next gen consoles are helping cutdown on development time.

Then Gran Turismo 7 should also be good to go. A title from Studio Japan. Perhaps the Demon's Souls remake by Bluepoint. I think those 4 at or during the launch window as in from November 2020- Early 2021 would be a pretty good launch without having to rely on PS4 games.

You guys think that even with the PS5 being backwards compatible with the PS4, Sony will release an improved, PS5-only version of TLOU2?

I'm hoping they do something similar to this gen at the beginning, where if you have the PS4 version, you can pay $5-$10 to upgrade to the PS5 version.
