Well everyone has a different preference on what they want to see but I personally wanted to see a glimpse of next gen instead of all the cross gen stuff which the xbox event showcased.

You are correct about Hellblade II though but the OP is comparing something else which is what I responded to... Not sure about the rest of your comments though loll.

Xbox event had next gen exclusive stuff. Just seems weird to downplay in engine and gameplay footage from real actual games while propping up gameplay from a literal tech demo. 

The rest of my comment was directed at the OP and his make believe narrative that Sony is losing the PR battle with PS5 or that it even matters.

All the games show in the event of last week weren't actual gameplay footage, several were CG and all had the label "game and system in development" and also claiming that was graphic target likely to be the one on XSX (and not impressive by the way).

This was a demo runing realtime on PS5 so something that is above the target runs of the other event.

And there is no make believe, you may have ignored several threads on the subject here, but it doesn't matter, it was a long talk about Sony losing on the PR battle and marketing. Weren't you in the thread claiming Sony reacted to Xbox reveal on that GDC video?

I think that ultimately this UE5 showing has a more positive effect for Sony than MS's Inside Xbox had for MS.

I agree that MS showed off actual games, but the over-hyping of the event and not delivering on gameplay promises I think dampened the entire affair.
While the UE5 demo was a tech demo, I am under the impression that it was an actual playable demo running on PS5 hardware, and not a typical tech demo that is just a demonstration of the tech with no player input.

Either way, it looked more impressive than anything we saw at Inside Xbox but the latter obviously had actual games.

I also don't think the HellBlade 2 trailer means much at this point. We have no idea if that is what ingame footage will look like when playing or anything. It looked super good. So if you think the UE5 demo is nothing to gush over, neither would the HB2 trailer imho.

It was explicitly said that the Unreal 5 demo was running realtime on PS5 and was captured and recorded.

All the trailers on the Series X event on OP had a tag that basically said those were target graphic because the game and system is in development with some saying it was recorded in-engine. But yes even the opening of the video say those games were gameplay but mostly all show was CG movies.

As a neutral party (Nintendo faithful) my interest in the Unreal Demo was just to see what Unreal 5 could do and to get a general sense of next gen hardware. I'm assuming it will run at least as well on series X so it didn't sway me in one way or the other in that regard.

On the regard of the UE5 running as well on XSX most of the titles show on the XSX reveal also would be running well on PS5. So it is more like have the marketing moved to one side or another on these 2 events?

It's not next-gen exclusive stuff when just about everything is shown is coming to PS4 and Xbox One as well. Some of the stuff they showed is out on PC. Bright Memory is on PC now and janky as hell...and it's coming to PS4/XBO. I pre-ordered Scarlet Nexus on PS4. Scorn has been in dev hell for about 6 years or so. Everything else just about coming to current-gen systems. All Xbox did was convince me I can keep my PS4 and have no reason to jump to XSX with that lineup.

The XSX didn't due much for me either in that regard because they were multiplatform games.

Same principle applies.  Unless either side is showing something that is exclusive or at least is somehow better on their system, I don't see why it would sway my decision.  But I think there may have been a couple of exclusives on there (Scarlett whatever might be I think?) so I guess maybe they get points for that.

I can see why people may be more hyped for the next generation in general based on the presentation.  But anyone who is claiming that either of those presentations really made a difference probably had already made up their minds anyway.



Tech demo lol

Scarlet is not exclusive. You can pre-order it now for PS4. That's not a typo. PS4.

Then I stand corrected.
