Actually I'd go with "and or things were so constantly in flux". Corona really, really, really messed with everyone's plans.
And that has a huge chain effect. When can you get parts, at one price, at one speed etc.

An early date (that isn't announced) gets leaked and it has to change and suddenly people are missed off at rumors.



  • Deadliest mass shooting by an individual in US history (10/01/2017)
  • Deadliest high school shooting in US history (02/14/2018)
  • Deadliest massacre of Jews in US history (10/27/2018)
  • Political assassination attempt of TWO former presidents(and 10+ other people)  (10/23/2018 - and beyond)

Yeah plus that Covid 19 factor. but i believe SOny Ninja are famous   in terms of keeping NDA and secret

While Nintendo Ninja is more about keeping their IP, SOny is more about keeping secret.

Ehhhhh.  TLOU2, PS Plus Games list, PS5 release date and features....  They may have been good once upon a time but this year has proven not so much.

True that Nintendo's ninja's certainly guard their IP but they also seem pretty damn adept lately at keeping a secret.  Do you know any other game companies that can announce a game they've been working on for over 2-3 years that launches in just 2 months?

That said, this pandemic has probably messed with so many schedules that it's almost shocking that only 2 presenting developers were unaware of the reveal date leading up to it.

which is why nobody is perfect. But at least the leak is getting handled perfectly 

also i never said Nintendo not good at keeping secret. It's just that SOny are well known for that , and Nintendo well known for protecting their IP. It's a general knowledge among gamer forum.

This is not how you want to end and start a new generation when you cant even trust the people who will be making games for your system.

this seems like a rather poor read of the tweet.

"Suprisingly".




Hmm I wonder what relatively recent leaks have inspired Sony to be so secretive?



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.
