I'll share thoughts on each game later, but overall i think it was an ok showing. Honestly, as much as I wanted a lot of 1st party stuff, I think it was clear that this wouldn't be the case. I honestly do think that Sony wants to shorten the time between announcement and release more (outside of a few titles). The Fairgame and Concord (and to a less extent Marathon) I think are good example of this: CG reveals for most likely 2024/ 2025 games, which is peculiar for Sony. I think Sony is going to need to figure out how to market these games so early announcements were probably the easiest thing to do now.
Anyways, Sony have already said that they're looking for 2 big games for each year, so they'll def have something for 2024. But, Helldivers 2 finally being announced was great.
I'll say this, I'd rather Sony just keep doing regular SoPs. I know a lot of ppl don't like them but honestly, I think it works a lot better at keeping engagement with what is coming out.
So 1 game per generation for one studio at this tempo. Great!
Considering Insomniac has released Spider-Man Remastered, Spider-Man Miles morales, Ratchet and Clank Rift apart, Spider-Man 2 will be out this year, and Wolverine has been announced, I don’t think that’s the case for every studio. Though there has been a lot of silence from other heavy hitters and we have just gotten speculation over the years of a few of the studios.
