I love my PS4. Got 100 retail games for it. So not hating on Sony, enjoy their systems a lot. Has there been a good SoP? Ever since Sony went full western nothing they show is that interesting? Like I mentioned before they never have any surprises. ND's love to surprise. I can't remember any of the SoPs. I do remember Sony deleting the original video of the first one for having so many downvotes. They re-uploaded it and turned off likes. I can remember specific directs. I already forgot this SoP outside of the bullshit Square pulled with FF7R. PS4 owners don't get a patch or the DLC. I need to spend $500 on a console no one can find so the game doesn't look like shit I guess. Textures never loaded in for me.
I'm a huge Sony fan, trying to maintain expectations is one thing. Showing several sizzle reels that show next to nothing new...that's something else entirely.
There's so many games being worked on in the first party pipeline. They could have shown something or even announced the PSPlus games during the show. Whoever is in charge of putting these SoPs together, needs to be demoted or moved to a different project.
The like to dislike ratio of the SOP seems to suggest that whoever is in charge does indeed know what they're doing.
So, I really wouldn't worry so much. Sony has not only in the last few years transitioned to a shorter showing and release window for some of their games, but covid has clearly messed up game production.
A lot of their content is probably moving around date wise so they don't feel it's necessary to show it off.
Factions 2 is most likely a very small announcement to release window.
Ratchet will have its own SOP soon.
With games so far away it doesn't really matter if they show it off or not now.
