Another sensitive one here it seems 😬

Sorry that discussing E3 and games offended you. Heil Sony. Long live Druckman. In Kojimas name we pray, amen. 

😆

Just curious, have you ever had something positive to say about Playstation or their games?

I've been here for few years now and I can't recall a single positive thing about Sony coming from you.

He do in retrospect, like when he say that now Sony is releasing a lot less games and taking less risk, as if he was complimenting Sony during PS3 and bought all those lesser successful games that Sony released at the time (even though if he doesn't really like a single exclusive from Sony, except he says SOCOM - probably because that was on PS2 so enough time passed), but during his J. Alard time you can bet he was mocking Sony for all its exclusives selling less than Xbox360 and they releasing so much low sellers.

You can even see his response that he have done several praises for Sony, but nothing recent because he doesn't like what they are doing, but was unable to source or even say what he praised.

You know that validates the excuse for Sony not going right?

If they dropping the Logo on CES (non-gaming event) get twice as much hype than MS revealing the console at a gaming related event.

So whatever they do will still get coverage, but yes do some joke on it.

Besides, congrats on "prove my point with a quick google search, that is all the evidence you need".

Over a million people would watch Sony conference at e3. Why would they not do one? If they want to save money they can do a direct like nintendo. Maybe they can even have no showfloor and just do a direct. 

They can make a conference, direct, stream or anything in the same day as E3, a week before or after or whenever they like and that would still get the viewership.

We still haven't heard from Sony what are their plans besides "participating in hundreds of other events". Being this the year they release PS5 I doubt they won't do something big to show off.

I just think it's pretty funny he wasn't impressed with 2018 and 2019 PS4 games but he's praising "Papa" Phil for everything he does. How's that Crackdown 3 that released in 2019 huh? 

Also no offense, but when grown men call someone "Papa" it makes it sound like the guy is a sex offender, just the nick name I mean.

Well being sincere I don't think anyone anymore believe in the neutrality and lack of console warmongering he says he have. It is pretty clear he is a very strong supporter of MS and doesn't like Sony at all, but he keeps pretending.

Why in the world would it not be clear that I enjoy what Microsoft offers very much? In terms of hardware and services, anyway. I've stated many times I don't care much for theirs or Sony's games. I can certainly see why someone like you and others here would think I don't like Sony at all, but I don't worry about it because console warriors are gonna do what they do.

Unfortunate for us but it still wont change the fact that the PS5 is still planned to launch end of this year at least.

E3 now just feels like an event for MS. Nintendo ditched first in favor of their Direct so I guess Sony wants to do it their way moving forward.

But Nintendo still have floor at e3. They also do competitions before e3 too like Splatoon, Smash, and super mario maker. 

I understand but it's really just about the conference, that's the real meat of E3.  Since Nintendo's been doing Direct for their own E3 it never really felt that Nintendo was there even if they have the floor, it just felt like fillers instead.

You seem to think that it is just a handful that think you don't like Sony or do warmongering.

like G4 or not... feels like since G4 left... E3 coverage has been lame... i know that people already moved to streaming the conference, but seems like we still need a more "conventional" way to broadcast E3

You seem to think anyone cares. The fact that you’re even talking about it shows you take this way more seriously than most do here. What does any of this have to do with Sony skipping E3, by the way?

Even so, it's still the biggest show out there.

Besides, it's not because you can get news by reading a blog or watching a youtube video that you can just get rid of theatre presentation and an industry conference spot where all parties are present, competing there to make the biggest show.

It's the same about those directs. Directs can get communication across as just as theatre conferences, but that doesn't mean that directs are better or worse than live theatre conferences. We can have both and in the end directs are just cheaper material, not exactly more interesting.

Youtube sure can host a bunch of trailers in a playlist so that everyone can watch them while sipping expensive Starbucks rubbish, but this is not the same experience of having a single weekend in the year of live news and presentations from a live spectacle from a real theatre and conference building where the real VIPs from all the industry parties are there working together sweating to present to the world their biggest products.

It is the biggest show indeed but that is no reason to stay the biggest.

They will be always be competing with eachother even if the timeframes between the information that is getting shown will become greater,i even think it could result in a better showing with lesser fluff and filler.I do understand the nostalgia but that is the only semi positive for me,and i can understand the people that always bought tickets to see it all in person but i just want the information and not the immersion.

Well yeah that is me and you is you so i do hope you will enjoy what is to come this year,you might even warm up to all of these changes;)

Bolded: I would never spent time to go get coffee,just making my own always tastes better :p

You're old school like me.

Well, sometimes I pick up coffee when I don't have time to make my own. To be honest I still prefer tea tho.



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+
