Yeah, I mean... I dunno. On one hand you're right, but on the other I wouldn't get my hopes up that we will get anything besides indies and 3rd parties.

But whether a secret announcement is coming or not, I'm interested to see more on certain games anyways. I'm good either way

I don't expect any announcement that would upstage Deathloop, but we might get a first look at the GOT DLC, a few games added to the PS+ Collection, or maybe something about PS Now.

I feel like any GTA5 showing alone will upstage it. I don't think it's so important for Deathloop to end the show as the marquee title. It just needs to sell the game, something which Bethesda is failing to do.

I also hope that stuff like PS+Collection and PS Now don't take up time. Not neccssary outside of blog posts, unless either are getting massive upgrades.

At this point Sony seem completely un-reactive to fans and the competition and seem to be sticking to their pre determined state of play schedule that generally precedes a game release.

I don't think they can keep this up.

Can't they?

They don't need to be showing off stuff like GoW now. They do need to start showing off what their 2021 is going to be like, which is exactly what this SoP will do: there's a bunch of smaller titles that are expected to launch exclusively for PS this year, but we have no dates for them.

Whether Sony spices up the SoP or not remains to be seen, but showing off exclusive content for the remainder of the year doesn't strike me as particularly out of touch. But we will find out soon.

A new Sly Cooper or a Ape Escape 1 remake would be cool



Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

The PlayStation fan base has truly died on this website lol



Was boring af.
Deathloop doesn't look bad tho, kinda interesting.
Doubt I'll ever touch it unless it's a PS Plus freeby tho.
Could really have used it to show GoT Director's Cut stuff instead of Death Stranding...



The State of Boredom. Sony SOP is absolutely awful everytime. They have great consoles and games but you can hardly tell with every SOP. With an ND people are hyped even on a rumor of one. When one happens usually at least 1 thing people lose their mind over. Often talk of that ND a week or 2 after. SOP. Hardly anyone ever mentions it when one is announced and I rarely see anyone anywhere talk about it even minutes after it aired, like wow did you see what they announced! Nope, that just does not happen with a SOP as it does with an ND anywhere online. Sony has not figured how to do these correctly yet.

Are you sure? cuz I belive people still talk of the horizon forbiden west one. Thats the thing with focused events like this, if the game in focus is boring like this one, the show will be a bust, but when the game is great like horizon it shakes the internet. 



It takes genuine talent to see greatness in yourself despite your absence of genuine talent.

Not the best State of Play. BUT Sony did say what was going to be in it ahead of time. Deathloop looks interesting, but considering I didn't care for Dishonored and the gameplay looks the same it isn't for me. I found the Horizon State of Play better as the game is more for me than Deathloop is.

I'm sure. That one came and went and saw little online about it after. Until last week still saw people talking about Metroid Dread.

Then you are probably avoiding certain topics. Cuz horizon vs halo is a very comon topic since they will be both the big cross gen holliday titles. And also lets also not forget previous state of plays like returnal and ratchet and clank or even last year like ghost and last of us. big games alays droped everyones jaws and was all people could talk about.

I'm hoping for an update on Ghostwire: Tokyo...I kinda lose more interest in Deathloop the more I hear about it.

What about it is turning you off? Personally, I like the sound of the game the more I hear about it, I just don't wanna buy it if it won't influence the dev to put more games on PS5. that's like, 75% of my game purchases: Just supporting the dev in a hope that we get more games like it. That's why I bought Dishonoured 1 and 2, I've never even opened them. I just like the idea of them and wanted the company to make more games and put them on my system of choice. 

It was mostly looking like it was turning into an online game but I guess the online is optional since they said the person chasing after you could be controlled by another person or an AI. The demo Reignited my interest in the game. I'll wait for reviews on it but the gameplay sold me on it again for now.
