It's not all that surprising why Sony is remaining quiet. The console is still 9-ish months away from release. I feel like we don't typically see full reveals earlier than this anyways. It makes the most sense for them to start hyping up the console more and more as release gets closer. The information will come, and Sony will be loud when the time is best for them.



Sony and Playstation are doomed now so that in the future, when there fortunes reverse, it can be based on being lucky due to...(insert reasons here)

What is going at Sony? I conjured up few scenario based on the words going around on the web.

scenarios that can't even back up with reasons why? It's about as baseless as me saying that the only reason MS has been buying up so many studios is because they're about to have a 3rd party exodus from their platform

I do think that Sony need a humbling now and then. Castrating Japanese developers and censoring things just isn't the way to go in my opinion.

They won't mess up though. They've got incredible exclusives and a loyal playerbase. It's all on Xbox this gen to recapture the 360's glory.

I see there are still some posters moaning about censorship. It had little effect on games when it was announced and it has almost zero effect on them now.

The wait and see approach is kinda a sign of inconfidence this far into the gaming industry's existence in my opinion. Especially after they dominated 8th gen. A leader, should lead, not follow.

Or they just have a timeline planned and are actually in the process of following it through. There is still so much time left until the end of the year that it's incredibly bizarre that ppl think we should have them giving all the info right now.

wouldn't surprise me



At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is the games that the console has and its price. That is a little more or less powerful, it really won't make a difference.

As long as the price is not excessive and they keep taking out their exclusives at a good pace, they will be fine.

As a Nintendo fan I'm insulted by all y'all saying Sony/Ps5 doomed. WE and WE ALONE are entitled to being doomed as a community (Nintendo). None of the rest of you (Sony, MS, Google, Apple) are ever allowed to be doomed. If you want you can pick another word.

Please understand...

I never said they should divulge all the information...they've given out a decent amount of information already. I should have specified, the wait and see approach for pricing. I'm a huge Nintendo fan, I'm not pissed that they haven't shown a direct. The information will be given out when ready, but in terms of back door hearings of Sony waiting to see what MS does in terms of pricing, and that behavior is in Sony's blood at this point starting with PS1, that tidbit is confusing.

Edit: Nevermind, answered my own question. I guess Sony doesn't want to PS3 themselves and hemorrhage billions this time around and get bold with their pricing. Makes sense.

When your logo reveal, generates alot more buzz, than a actual console unveiling from the competitor.
People are too worried, about sony not announceing things just because xbox resently has.



Sony like Nintendo and Microsoft has a fan base that will buy the system no matter what. Sony's fan base is rather large compare to the others, and even if it is under powered its not going to lose this generation of consoles. Microsoft while they have a hardcore fan base will never amount to anything in Japan, and will have to sell their console to someone that doesn't care for shooters and racers such as Halo, and Forza. Xbox One was the first Microsoft console I bought, got it really cheap to play Rare Replay, and it is currently not hooked up to a TV in my house. I have no intentions of buying the X at this point, and it will take a lot of exclusive games that interest me to get me to buy one. Do I want PS5 information, of course I do, but it really doesn't matter I will be getting one.

It's still an issue. Nothing quite like Western views being injected into Japanese culture, eh?

It did a number on independent studios as well.

I am a Playstation guy, always have been, but sometimes they need a slap.
