Wow, GT7 is going to be the most realistic yet!

Not too fussed about raytracing or haptic triggers, as long as they improve the Fisher Price Dual Shock 4, the build, the comfort, a battery life like the Switch Pro (40 hours instead of 4), I'm happy. It was like the heavens opened on the occasions when I went from the DS4 to a Switch Pro.

There are actually people making fun of Sony for "being lazy" with the design. Those people probably never heard of brand recognition ::shrug: 

Anyways, here's a mockup of possible PS5 game boxes:

Gotta say, love the choice of black. I like it a lot more than blue.

Better battery life on the controller is definitely my biggest desire. I've never experieced any other problems with the build quality but the PS3 controller seems to last forever off of a small charge, whereas the 4 hours I get from the DS4 is a pain. Oh, and make it USB C.

I just hate the shape of it, doesn't feel comfortable at all to me, unlike the Xbox/Switch which feel amazing in hand, but I guess they'll stick with it :blank:. I wonder if the pointless touchpad and light bar made the battery life so insanely short too.

But not a battery life like the Joy-Cons? :p

I've never personally had a problem with the DS4, but then I don't play that often. A better battery life would be good though.

I don't play the PS4 much either but 4 hours vs 40 hours on the equivalent controllers the Switch Pro or Xbox is a pretty stark difference.

"equivalent" could also mean 'the primary controller for the console' which would be the Joy-Cons not the Pro, but I get what you're saying.

Physical media is sooooo last generation. :cheeky:

I think I purchased a PS4 about a year or so after launch, and I may do the same again, depending on cost and launch lineup. Not quite in a rush for a new console just yet.

lol remember when you got Injustice on the Wii U because you didn't have a PS4?  

Don't do that again.

Haha, we were talking about this yesterday!

I think I've got 3 versions of that game. 1 on WiiU (lol), another disc on PS4 and then I think I've got it on PS+. 

In fairness, it's a fantastic game. :laughing:

E3 is obviously fading but I thought they would definitely show up this year given they've got a brand new console to promote. Shows how fractured the promotion side of things has become that they don't feel it necessary anymore, most people thought it was just Shawn Layden that didn't want to show up to E3 but it's obvious now that it's a company wide strategy. 

Will be interesting to see how the effects third party presence at the PS5 reveal event and other shows going forward. This whole generation Playstation has managed to secure the marketing rights to a slew of massive games but this could change things.

Genuinely shocking that Sony is skipping E3 again this year.  Last year was understandable, given that they had literally nothing to show (and were probably originally planning on launching the PS5 last year); but to skip it on the year of the PS5's launch? Wow!

 

E3 is DONE.  There's no point to it anymore if Microsoft are the only ones showing up to the party...

It's definitely not the typical move to pull when you've got a console launching at the end of the year but I'm not surprised. There seems to have been tension between SIE and the ESA over the last couple of years and I suspect that may have just simply come to head here.

My other thought was that if there is going to be a power disparity between the Xbox Series X and the PS5 as rumours suggest (even if they are outdated), this move might be a way to mitigate that. Get the console and games into the hands of the gamers at ComicCon, at PAX, Gamescom, Paris Game Week, Tokyo Game Show, etc. and stop that rhetoric before it gets banded around by press or influencers or what have you. Any differences in power, however marginal, will only be magnified running up to launch so getting ahead of that by letting consumers decide may well be a way around what should be a non-issue for most the large majority.

If it means consumers get hands on without having to wait hours and hours in a queue as has become the case with E3 as of late then it's a good move. We'll see how it'll all play out soon as there must be an announcement coming very shortly for the console.

I'm not too surprised, to be honest. Their were rumours last year that Sony weren't happy with the way E3 is being handled, which is one of the reasons why they pulled out from it. The show is caught in between trying to be an event for the public but also remaining a trade show, satisfying neither criteria. It's been dying a slow death fro years now, what with Nintendo  no longer putting on a live show (they still do have a strong presence though), EA doing their own thing, Sony pulling away from it and Microsoft hosting their event at their own venue. You also have the massive ESA data leak souring a lot of the press on the event and the rise in costs in renting an area at the venue. A cost which a lot of indie developers simply can't afford. There was also the leaked ESA document from the latter half of last year which showed the direction the show was going in, with them wanting to pander to influencers and other scummy practices. It wasn't a good look for the ESA or the show in general.

It's sad that E3 has gone the way it has but I suppose it was inevitable. The way people consume their entertainment and information has changed and as much as I once loved my Christmas in June, E3 is no longer needed for publishers/developers to get their messages across. Iwata foreseen this years ago when they pulled away from live shows and introduced the Direct model and now others are following his path.

That was definitely not a surprise.

Sony will reveal the new console at their own event and the people who'd watch E3 will also tune in for that. Depending on the timing it might also pull a lot of attention away from E3.

An interesting decision, only time will tell if it's right or wrong for them. I don't think their State of Plays have taken off in the way they'd hoped so if that's the substitute for an E3 presence it's pretty disappointing.
