    And the PS5 “logo reveal” had what, 5 million views in a day? Only a few weeks ago.

    You kinda just proved my point :)

    Where? Link?

    Further, you said it's not trending and, it actually is trending :razz

    Searching YT for "PS5 logo reveal" shows the highest count at 2 mil for a Cnet vid after a month. Austin's Series X vid has 1.5 in less than a day. Anyways different things, PS5 logo reveal turned into a meme/joke.

    Again, Please understand that I’m not judging what Sony or MS are doing here. All I’m talking about is timing and the realities of what is happening in business right now.

    1 million views on a CNET video will not get Xbox to sell PS4 numbers.

    5 million Instagram likes in 24h for a stupid PS5 logo shows that the PS brand is strong, but especially that the timing of that reveal was in a different world to today’s.

    “Becoming a meme” and “millions of instagram likes” is the kind of coverage everyone should aspire to, in today’s marketing! I know it’s sad, but that’s the world we live in: sad.

    It’s the kind of marketing that has served Sony so well for so many years, and it’s clear to see why they wouldn’t want to get away from that. Getting those “casual gamers” in. Nintendo has also been very good at this, on and off.

    MS is most definitely winning the “core gamer” public right now - some of the tech in the X is insane. The auto-HDR tech for example? I cried happy tears.

    But MS needs to win a whole lot more than the “core gamers” if they want to get anywhere close to what the PS4 did this generation.

    EDIT: NEVER MIND!!!!!

    Yeah, I was auto-HDR tech looked amazing...initially I was only really interested in RT and SSD improvements but XSX is looking really impressive!

    Totally agree about the marketing too.

    It was originally planned for GDC so we can expect techs but not so much for games(and actually they will do it anyway even Microsoft didn't do anything yesterday).

    And so it begins....

    Finally, world will stop spinning if no TF figure given though.

    This would've been a really good week if gdc was still going on. As it is, so far so good.

    Guess they won't take it with digital foundry? That would be awesome. Curious if sony will show the final design, and offcourse full specs and everything.

    If this was supposed to be the GDC presentation, I wouldn't expect the final console form factor yet. I think that will be for a consumer type reveal in a month or two. This will focus on the innards. I just hope we see some real next gen graphics show pieces.

    It'd be quite nice to see the Motorstorm PS3 trailer again, and then be shown it's running in realtime. ;)
