    Because Sony figured out that managing expectations is kinda important ...

    This is learning from mistakes of not managing people's expectations. I would definitely have expected to see some PS5 news, indeed see mostly PS5 stuff so I would have been disappointed had I gone in cold.

    This is stupid, if true. I assume the role is very minor and Square Enix repurposed Insomniac's models/art and were allowed to piggyback on Sony's PlayStation Spider-Man licence so not have to pay for the character.

    I read the exclamation as something to be excited about, and why should they be telegraphing excitement for something that is the opposite?

    It's not about being liars. I don't know what you're going on about.

    Sorry I was being sarcastic, whenever sony clearly contradicts a rumor, it's like the rumor still wins.

    The exclamation seems to be to emphasize to disregard the rumors. The actual text is very precise with what the State of Play will be about, so the tweet maybe looks a little strange in isolation with the exclamation.

    I read the exclamation mark as a question mark.

    It's true. Guess they didn't want to wait until of State of Play.

    It's from CD, so they will put hulk on xbox, and starfox on nintendo.

    And they will have 3 nice hats.

    Good opportunity to talk about backwards compatibility while your expectations are low.

    Masterchief would make more sense for Xbox, but don't want either. Keep your money hats.

    I.. actually appreciate the honesty.
    They told people what it is and what it isn't. They want to show off a bunch of PSVR titles, so they're showing it, that's all.
