That wasn't marketing. That was a GDC video. During GDC week.
They didn't talk about price. They didn't show any games. They had no mention of release date.
This really is just a repeat of 2013.
"Sony isn't talking they are awful" yet they CLEARLY make a video (during GDC week) for GAME DEVEoloPERS and now its
"Sony has the worst marketing ever" - because of a GAME DEVELOPER CONFERENCE (gdc) video.
Sony is releasing three big exclusives in two months. Nioh, Persona 5, and FF7R(for now) and yet we are getting constant "sony is doomed" bs.
edit: oh and quick edit. We probably won't see these consoles for more than EIGHT MONTHS. Relax.
In 2013, Sony had a two hour conference in February, where they showed off the specs, and announced several launch titles.
The point I'm making is that Sony has been talking about PS5 for almost a year and the entire time it's been towards devs. They haven't started talking to gamers.
And? To quote you "They haven't started talking to gamers". The PS3 was an issue. It came out last. It was over priced. And I think less powerful?
It had to overcome a lot. Sony had to make it clear "yeah ok we fucked up".
The PS4 dominated. Is STILL dominating. They are literally in the process of releasing three powerful exclusives. They didn't fuck up. They did nothing wrong.
You aren't wondering why Xbox is constantly trying to get press? They massively fucked up. From "no used games" to a FORCED kinect (which also raised the price). Including "we will never get rid of the kinect" and their poor game output.
They had to overcome as lot. They had to make it clear "yeah ok we fucked up".
The "gamers" should be having faith. They should be looking at the 25+ years, and the 4 amazing consoles. I'm STILL enjoying my PS4. So why would I worry even 1% about Sony NOT talking to gamers.
It is better to be thought a fool and not open your mouth, than to open it and prove it. Until Sony actually fucks up when talking to gamers - Relax.
Oh and reminder - this doesn't come out for another 8+ months. Feels like I need to keep pointing that out.
