I'm excited! I hope they show off more of Hellblade II. I still need to play and beat the first one but the little we saw of the sequel looks amazing.

This showcase is for 3rd parties only.

Rumour is they have a 1st party focused show in July.

Oh. I missed the second post. Still exciting to finally hear something. I'm certain the rest of us are just as thirsty for some news on what to expect coming up.

I am usually entertained by Microsoft events like this, but it is only because my BS meter is fully turned on.  How many of these games will also come to XB1?  Will they overhype something no one cares about like "Minecraft in 4k"?  Will it have some gimmick like watching TV with a Kinect?  Will they invite cirque du soleil again and turn their show into a literal circus?

Basically, once you subtract off all of the BS, then how much actual content will they have?  I'm even going to be super generous to them this time.  They get half credit for any game that also comes to PS5 just as long as it doesn't come to a gen 8 system.  I'll even give them full credit for a Series X exclusive even if the game also comes to PC.  Games must also give a release date of 2021 or sooner to get any credit.  Again, I'm setting the bar really low this time, but usually Microsoft finds a way to limbo under my expectations.

If you think that majority of games announced at PS5 event won't also have PS4 version, you are gonna get disappointed. Devs are not stupid to leave 100m+ userbase behind, so PS4 will be supported for a really long time. Way longer than XB1 will.

X1 will be supported for a long time to come also because of backwards compatibility and Game Pass.

Sony is welcome to suck just as much as Microsoft does.  It's up to each company to decide if they want to give us a reason to buy their system or not.  "Here are a bunch of games also available on current systems."  That doesn't really make me want to buy a new one.  Games that are only available on a next gen system are what make people want to buy a next gen system.

Kind of disappointing we're not getting any first party footage. I know they're saving it for their showcase in June/July but I always envisioned it would have a mix of third/first party regardless. Like, a small teaser of gameplay for Halo: Infinite in May, followed by a huge gameplay demo for their next event.

Oh well. Bring on the next generation!

Sony has confirmed PS5 exclusives. 

In terms of cross generation titles for the PS5, I expect the majority of them will be third party.

This event is only focused on 3rd party games, so expect almost all of them to come to current gen as well. Their next event will focus on 1st party games. I feel like MS has been lazer focused on games the last couple of E3's.

B/C doesn't work both ways so it doesn't guarantee XB1 support in any way. GamePass doesn't matter for lots of third party games, so it doesn't impact their decision on XB1 support as well.

This event is about third parties it seems, so I was talking specifically about third-parties. I guess that every third party game without PS marketing will also be on PS4. On the other hand, Sony might not be showing such games at their event.

You under estimate humans not wanting to settle at their hobbies. Why get the last gen version when there’s a shiny upgraded version available? Same reason why people buy cosmetics in games like fortnight. Why play the exact same game for the same fun as everyone else when you can look accomplished and not-poor with $20 worth of cosmetics?

If people have the means and care about their experience being optimal, they will upgrade. And if they don’t care, that’s what the current gen version is for.

Sounds like your position is one of idealism and not realism. You could have games like Killzone Shadowfall or Forza 5...next gen launch xclusives that are also the worst reviewed in the series. Also Ryse and Knack, their metacritic speaks for itself. Or you can go for critical success with high quality cross gen. It’s only the launch, plenty of years ahead for pushing potential. I see the positives :)
