    Well I searched for the reveal trailer of tlous and it had shimmering and aliasing. It also didn't look that impressive, quite similar to the ingame visuals perhaps the models were a tad bit more detailed.

    I watched it this it and yeah. I think Shawn Layden, Jack Tretton's successor, wanted his moment in the spotlight but it just slowed the pace of the whole thing and make is unnecessarily long - but Sony have a history of loooong E3 conferences.

    I was listening to the bombcast during it and they thought it was a kind of hazing to have to deliver the most yawn inducing part of the event

    For your entertainment I will go Microsoft fanboy-mode on the Uncharted 4 water:

    ...:roll: :cool:

    Ontopic: they should have showed the Last Guardian, even if it was just a few second teaser of that 'thing'... waking up? Just to show that it's not cancelled. If would have cost them next to nothing, but it would have please team ICO fans all over the world. A serious missed chance :-(

    And they do it almost every year and the press bash them for it. I'm surprised they have not learned that the press and consumers generally just want the core game information at the glitzy press conference. Sony are at E3 for the whole week so why not do all the non-core gaming news in separate interviews. :???:

    It's inscrutable :) It must be a corporate thing and it is a bore. I will say it used to be a lot worse

    Granted, E3 is also for the companies to send a message to investors/general media, not just a gameshow aimed at viewers.

    We're all after the new games, new IP, but we also have to consider there are people that do indeed care about the companies rolling out new services.
    It may be a bore for us but there are important figures that will find the 30 minutes that bore us into oblivion quite useful in understanding where Sony is focusing on in the future in terms of services apart from games and new ips.

    Very true but that could make it easier on their customer but leaving all the corporate strategy stuff towards the end. Then gamers know when Shawn Layden appears, they can switch off.

    Putting this in the middle, utterly destroys the pace of the games information. You're getting games news and buzzed and hyped then Mr Buzzkill comes on for 20 minutes, and they have to work to rebuild the buzz they just destroyed.

    I am really missing some fighting fun this generation. I can't believe MKX is the only next gen fighting game that has been shown so far.
    Oh and Guilty Gears Xrd which looks insane but won't be here any time soon.

    He retied in March. Only from Sony/PlayStation but I don't know where he is now. He was at E3 though!

    Bah, should have get him to launch a risky (but high reward) project before he leaves. That way if it fails, people can blame him. :runaway:
