I've learned to manage my expectations so I enjoyed it as well.

Basically, whether you view it as "bad" or not is all down to relative expectations.

Exactly. And it seems like the majority of people watching on YouTube have learned to do just that. I'd probably rate it 7/10 as there's still room for improvement.

The biggest reason why I own PS hardware is Naughty Dog so naturally I was pretty happy with what we got. I hope to see the multiplayer in the near future as I've enjoyed TLOU's mp A LOT.

The thing is just a bunch of trailers. The quality of the show depends on the content. As Sony starting keeping its best content announcements for themselves instead of other organisations events, the state of play will get better.

Still, this one was good in my opinion.



God bless You.

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

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?


Just me. This is a great format. SoP is genersting hype.
Unlike just announcing release dates from their 1st party and 3rd party exclusive games. SoP can give small games a chance for people to see this upcoming games.  Using SoP to highlight their VR games as well. 


I remember people complaining that these small games are just being announce randomly in ps blog.  That people are missing checking the game announcement. Now these games will have more coverage.

I like the format. Save the majority of big guns for a conference style next year. SoP will have random big games annuncment and updates thru out the year.
Will gives this small games to shine when ps 5 will release.

So reading from this thread... The state of play is currently underwhelming? One could even argue it's in a bad state of existence?

First impression was "okay this is just TLoU2 show".... and a deathstranding limited ed. PS4 console.
kinda underwhelming.

After watching Inside Xbox.... your perspective change though, because that was actually worse than this State of Play.
Time for Nintendo to come out with a good Direct, and show them both how its done.

The last direct was bad. Looks like this month is a bust for everyone.

Based on the opinions of a Nintendo fan? Sure, I have no doubt that it could be underwhelming.

Based on people actually owning a PS4? Well, the like/dislike ratio on YouTube has greatly improved from the first State of Play with 91% of people now giving it a thumbs up. Personally, I've learned to manage my expectations so I enjoyed it as well.

I don't have an opinion. I was basing my comment on the comments I read on this thread. I'm still getting over how bad the last Nintendo Direct was to be bothered to have an opinion on Sony State of Play. I was just curious what the general consensus for Sony fans was.

Found it wasn't that bad, maybe hoping for seeing something New of Project awakening, but i found it o.k.

It's all good. I didn't read all comments in this thread. I just noticed that people watching on YouTube seemed to be far more satisfied with this SoP than the first one.

The last direct was decent, your definitely in the minority with that opinion.

Maybe I am, but I don't understand how. Let's look at the new announcements:

1) SNES is coming to Switch - Cool, this should have been day 1 of subscription service. I hate NES games and therefore never really played those. But they didn't even release some of my favorite SNES games on this yet. By now we should have at least N64 games. This was a yawn announcement to me.

2) Smash Character - Some random character from some random game from a LOOOOONG time ago, as opposed to a legendary character or someone relavent today, is announced. They could have picked a hundred more characters than Terry Bogard that would have been far less redundant and more exciting to this generation of players. This was more annoying than boring.

3) Overwatch on Switch - We already knew this coming. Why it wasn't released a LONG time ago I have no clue, but that isn't Nintendo's fault and I will be buying this. Cool, but not shocking due to the leaks.

4) Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition - I guess re-releasing it once wasn't enough, now they are doing it again. And this one, being in HD, means a great deal more effort is going to go into it rather than the 3ds de-mastering magic, which means more develops away from new games.

5) Animal Crossing "new footage" - This was literally the same footage as in E3, or at least most of it. Huge letdown for me. I wanted to see NEW things!

6) Pokemon - WOW. They showed us how we can pet our Pokemon and how we can COOK FOOD OMGSH! Terribly boring.

7) Deadly Premonition: Origins - Cool, out of no where, but I doubt many will care and this will probably not sell much. I had forgotten about it until just now.

8) Super Kirby Clash - Free to state? BOO! Available now? COOL! No story or campaign, and instead is just Monster Hunter -level boring quests? Sad.

9) Little Town Hero - We didn't know much about Town before this, and I was excited. Now? Not so much. This moved me from instant buy day one to potentially never going to buy.

10) LM3 Multiplayer - This was cool. LM already looked great and now looks better.

11) Ports and Remasters: Return of Obra Dinn (never heard of it), Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore a remaster (the title alone is annoying enough to pronounce that I won't buy this game, not to mention it looks to be unappealing to me), Divinity Original Sin 2 (cool), Doom 64 (cool), Jedi Outcast (um... what?!), and ASS Creed Rebel Collection (Great, but played last generation on Wii U, at least Black Flags).

I just didn't have a good opinion of hardly any specifics for this direct, which is hardly like me. I normally LOVE their directs, but this one just felt terrible to me. One of their worst ever in my opinion.
