This kinda pisses me off. Why did they even announce it when they did with videos and everything?

Because they're Square and they do this every damn time.

It's symptomatic of a larger problem with Sony. They were able to steal the show at E3 2015 with FFVII Remake, Shenmue 3, No Man's Sky, Horizon:ZD, and the Last Guardian.

TLG was a relaunch of a game originally promised to PS3 owners. FFVII has yet to materialize, nearly 3 years late. Shenmue 3 was a kick-starter, also yet to materialize. Fans felt horribly let down and misled by No Man's Sky. Horizon was the only game released in a reasonable time frame that was also well received. 

I don't know how many people are actually excited for Days Gone, but they've used considerable main stage time demoing that over the past few industry events, and now that's been pushed back to 2019.

There are obviously lots of great games to play on PS4 regardless, but I'm watching their events with a lot of skepticism now.

I think we're partly to blame for that. The biggest thing that wows people at trade shows are the demos for fantastic new projects, when we don't get that and only get the small incremental updates of known projects or demos of smaller projects that are likely to release soon, suddenly we talk about how their conference was a letdown. In response they get in a habit of taking risks by announcing projects without knowing what production will even look like, just because they know fans will talk about it, and that improves their brand recognition.



This the actual picture of the team working on this game right now :

"the development team are currently in the brainstorming phase of creating a world of Final Fantasy VII "

PS4 my ass.

I'd be happy to go an E3 or two with stuff we already know about if they could just "catch up" to what's current (don't know if I phrased it right. Sounded good in my head.). I'd have been just as hyped for Horizon if it were shown off less than a year before it actually released. 

 

If you all me, showing games too early gives people time to copy your ideas, kills some of the "freshness. If I'd seen Super Mario Odyssey footage years before it released, it would have killed a lot of the surprises. 

I guess the excitement and hype building are worth it but it could potentially backfire. But what do I know? I'm just a lowly forum dweller. These big corporations seem to know what they're doing.

At this point it might be a PS5 title.



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

This could easily mean part 2 or beyond. You guys read to much into it and want to be disappointed.

you would think people would have learned not to trust SE after FFXV(formerly vs XIII) took basically ten years to develop



Just admit it's coming to the PS5, the longer they keep this lie the worst it will get.

I can definitely sign up for some blame on that.
