The problem was not the format or presentation, it was the content, or the lack of it.
They had no real reason to do that as it was, it was pathetic, or are you gonna tell me they need to mark a day and hour to show me that bland Iron Man VR game? Days Gone 15th trailer? A MK character?
If they are going to do this they need to do this when they have a reason to do this. If they had given say Death Stranding a release windown, that would already be something actually interesting and gather my attention. And its they major exclusive I'm least interested into by far.
If they are skipping two major conferences in a row of course they have to show us a big announcement too, even if I was completely not expecting it at all right now, they'll have to, eventually.
Even that quick Persona 5 The Royal teaser was miles more impactant than this whole State of Play thing.
They make me feel like not caring to watch the next when they mark it, and if they go and announce something big there and I miss it and get spoiled, then I'll get mad.
They have to set this right, do it when they have a reason to do it, and if it's as irrelevant as this it could very well be something weekly/monthly where PSN discounts and new releases announcements would make sense.
I'm giving them one more chance and that's it, if it's this bad again they have lost me, I'm lot making room to watch it when they release it for random irrelevant stuff like this. Not really.
This is so bizarre. You are this upset over a 20 minute presentation. A presentation that spent less than 2 minutes on average on each game shown.
Again, how can you even phantom that big announcements are going to take place this soon if they skipped PSX because of not having stuff to show? There are still future broadcasts coming, so something closer to E3 (but more importantly after Days Gone has released) will have something that is 'big'.
Do you really think Sony have a bunch of PS4 exclusives hiding away? Don't you think that they wanted to make sure that games releasing soon (especially Days Gone) got the social media attention over a brand new announcement? Days Gone is their next game and they will want all Sony talk centred on that as much as possible. So another reason why a big announcement was never going to happen. Death Stranding launch date just makes the event about Death Stranding. Now we have ppl talking about Sony's VR support, saying how thew new Concrete Genie trailer has won them over, and the Days Gone trailer looking solid. The stuff that is coming out sooner is being talked about.
At the end of the day you are just upset that the conference didnt have any games that spoke to you, which is a fair point to have but you argue as if that isn't the reason why the event was bad when clearly it is.
The event was bad, period.
They made me want to be hooked on that specific day and time to show me nothing.
If Days Gone have had little exposure up until now I would understand it, but there are like 8 hours of gameplay and trailers over the internet this past months. Even if there was a reason to show it again, it does not hold any impact anymore, they are making the game feel old already, and it did not even release yet. Look at how they treat TLoU 2 for example, that' how you do it. You tease, you show some gameplay/features and you let people wanting for more. Days Gone was been all over the place. Meanwhile they hide Dreams like a disease on their presentations and shovel it away on random videos here and there.
If they have nothing of importance to show, than simply don't do it. I'm completely okay expecting the major showing post E3 they will do, but if they tell me to stay tuned now they are holding a new presentation, and then show nothing of relevance then of course I'll get upset.
