I didn’t see anything wrong with your comment. And I’m more of an Xbox guy. But own all of them.

I personally think the industry works a little better with Xbox having an edge in power. They need something as an advantage to compete, if you call being outsold by 100 million competing.

Hopefully MS makes major strides in regards to exclusives. I think they will. But I also don’t expect the new IP’s to be universally loved.
They need the edge in something without it costing the consumer.
i.e the consumer paying more money

Don't let Gaffers see that. Their heads might implode.

I'm ready to see some games...
No date yet, but word is they are eventually going to have a ‘games only’ presentation, so that will be exciting.
I’m really hoping for something unexpected for launch, but so far I’m assuming the big titles will be Ghosts and TLOU2 remasters.

A new Motorstorm would be cool. That and a SOCOM reboot were rumored, but nothing yet.

I agree 100% with that. The Xbox has done a lot more to push the gaming industry forward. Sony's innovation in gaming is sort of a reaction to how aggressive MS was in the 360 era. When MS took their foot off the gas so did Sony.

I think many people were disappointed with the “road to ps5” video because they went into believing it was gonna be a direct or e3 presser filled with new game videos, the unit itself and price...they wanted actual game content. This was an insightful deep dive of what could be possible in game design, with the new hardware, aim at developers who were gonna attend GDC.

Xbox released their game stack videos for GDC and it’s gone completely under the radar by gamers.

The UK studio that made Motorstorm is no more. So, highly unlikely.
Neither Ghosts or TLOU2 are next gen exclusive. So, they really should have a new exclusive .._maybe GT 7.

But why would they think that? Other than seeing the actual design,XSX event wasn't really any different. We got no games, date, price, etc. Hell, the "road to" part of the event title should've put people in check.

Guess they felt it was gonna be more of highlight/showcase event, for gamers, as they did with the ps4 in New York, to one up the competition. People were hyped for all of that but forgot or ignored that it wasn’t going to be that.

All good, no worries m8. Just trying to share all perspectives, even if I do have leaning favor towards Xbox and switch over PlayStation...I love them all.

Yea. That is a problem nowadays with gamers, they expect things like they are entitled to it. Would be better if gamers hoped rather than expected. I mean, I hoped for next gen gameplay from both events, but I'd be sitting here all pissed if I expected it.

Same with Xbox and its exclusives issue, I'm not expecting them to fix it this time, but I am hoping they fix it with all their new studios.
