They could have both. As long as there is a good number of good titles they can mix launch window and later releases.

They only have 40 minutes and said they have a great launch line-up. There will be time spent on price/date and maybe some UI stuff, but the rest I want to see spent on in game presentations of those launch games and not on some far out projects, even if they are high profile. And I hope everyone learned from the super short Fable annoucement, that this is not the way to go about it.

The presentations for PS5 so far have been to my liking, so I`m very confident on this show as well.

Don`t forget Papa "good guy" Spencer with backhanded compliments and "me too" posts.

If they show any of the following; God of War II, GTA VI, Silent Hill or Final Fantasy XVI I will bust a nut.

Also sticking to my initial predictions for prices - $499 / £449 PS5 , $399 / £349 PS5 DE

Someone’s gotta tell the public what games are multiplat and timed. It certainly won’t be Sony lol. 

Thinking of Xbox showcases where they say off the bat “World Premiere” = multiplat or games that are timed. Very clear messaging. Sony just shows trailers without context of availability, and making people guess or assume they are exclusive when they are not is a little shady.

In this regard what Phil says after their conferences is a blessing. He is simply clearing up FUD but yes it also serves to take away some of the spotlight which I understand your frustration. 



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles.

I hope they'll only show off titles that release in the launch window and not CGI for something years away from release (like FF16 probably is).

This. If they want to hype people for their console, why not go all out announcing a few big hitters like GoW 5 to remind people what’s coming in the more distant future?

Yes sure... Just like Phil Spencer was very front with Tomb Raider exclusivity deal right?

Or there was a very big need to clarify that Xbox had a very good SSD.

Or there was a need to confirm UE5 was available on XSX.

Or that Destiny was going to Xbox.

There are so many examples of him going out of his way to try and bath in the spotlight of others that it is shameless. It is always he crying wolf when others do the practices his company was doing until they didn`t got leverage for it anymore... I`m certain he was in a urge to tell when the new Yakuza was going to show on Playstation. Owww he didn`t, neither did Sony. Because Sony respects the agreements MS got and only talk about their own stuff.

In the last show, they announced/ showed off 15 games in the first 40 minutes, and that included a Ratchet trailer and gameplay segment, some messages from devs and those cool transitions. 

There's definitely enough time to show off something tangible.

I'm pretty sure 'World Premiere' means first time you see will see this game, cause they use it for their own 1st party games too.

I forgot what Phil said about Tomb Raider, but I’m pretty sure nobody believed Xbox got full exclusivity. It was timed and we all knew it. There was a big need to clarify the Xbox SSD, Sony (and their fans) made it seem like their SSD came from God himself. There was a VERY big need to clarify that yes, many Xbox Studios use UE for their games and no, Sony studios do not in fact use UE much at all. Destiny Sony marketing rights all but made the Xbox version non existent to the general gaming public.

Hey he ain’t perfect but he’s doing a service. Sony is by far much more vague when they show gaming trailers in terms of platform availability.
