Going to be an interesting year for PlayStation for sure. It's has been a while since we didn't know the games six months in advance.

@Ralizah Maybe they will do one soon after, or just before? Though really, I feel that these days a company can do it at any times. Though I hope it's going to be a little bigger than the current State of Play, but I have no doubt it will.

Today got another 2 games for the PS4. Tomb Raider (2013) and Rise of the Tomb Raider. To the backlog with them!

@Zuljaras Neat! I really liked both of those! I haven't gotten around to Shadow yet, but I think I will soon. It's not quite like a modern ''open world'', and it's not linear either. Like a weird combination of Zelda and Uncharted. I really like the formula. God of War did it as well.

@Octane That is a good thing! If I want the ultimate open-world experience Assassin's Creed (Origins + Odyssey) and BotW.

@Zuljaras I prefer it over the modern open world TBH. Just like the classic 3D Zelda. It's open world in the fact that you can go anywhere by the end of the game, but there are clear borders on the map so you're forced through narrow and more linear pathways. It's the best of both really.

Octane

Zuljaras

@Octane Yes from time to time I need such games that are more linear with heavy story elements. But sometimes I need something to get lost into and just explore without thinking about the main goal.

And sometimes I need something like Shovel Knight to get frustrated by my mistakes

I’m not sure E3 is as irrelevant as people are claiming online. The various State of Plays and that logo reveal were pretty silly events. I think they should just stick with maintaining a Youtube and social media presence and condense all their interesting material into 2 State of Plays a year that way you know it’s going to be good stuff.

I think it's probably the E3 2018/2019 problem, console launch windows are generally very heavily reliant on last gen games (e.g. Switch, PS4, XB1) or have huge game droughts (e.g. Wii U) so if Sony were to reveal the new games at a PS5 reveal event (could be February) then the surprises are gone for E3 unless Sony were to pull a E3 2015 revealing a load of far in the future games. I don't think they'd focus too far in the distance this time so an E3 2020 appearance would've been similar to E3 2018.

I think this is why Microsoft has been so quiet on games like Halo Infinite, so that their E3 is strong. I'd imagine there'd be 2-3 Inside Xbox streams before E3 but focus on pre-E3 stuff like Game Pass, controllers, Ori 2, Gears Tactics, Cyberpunk, Master Chief Collection, post-launch support for Gears 5 and Sea of Thieves, etc.

@Grumblevolcano Yeah, something like that. I personally think that when they reveal the console, they should also announce the launch games and maybe a 2021 game or something like that. But if they're also going to do E3, it's going to be a repeat of the same software, which is boring; or upcoming games that won't release within a year, and I think they're trying to avoid that issue. The only option is not to reveal games alongside the console, but revealing a black box would be boring as well. So skipping E3 in favour of a more entertaining reveal presentation is the best solution IMO.

FFVII Remake delayed to April 10th and Avengers delayed to September 4th.

Good. Avengers looked quite rough.

Ahhh man, wanted Avengers for my birthday! Probably just hold out to play it on the PS5 at that point. Oh well glad they're doing the right thing

So now April is RE3, FF7R, and Cyberpunk all in the first half of the month. Wowzers!!

I've had every generation of PlayStation and both handhelds but have also had the original Xbox and an Xbox 360. I've got a very large library of games (about 260) on PS4 but I'm getting very tempted to skip the PS5 and get the Series X. I just think Game Pass is the best idea in gaming. My brother has an Xbox One S and the subscription and can play all the latest games without spending a lot of money. I think it's far better value than Playstation Now which i've tried. Is anyone else feeling tempted to switch consoles? Sony has had the better exclusives for a while but that could change with all the studios Microsoft has bought. It's also looking like Microsoft will have the most powerful console this time with all the rumours and they've been producing quality hardware for a while now with their Surface lineup.

Ugh, delayed FF7 is annoying but not surprising. I don't understand why they give exact release dates in situations where they're not 100% sure. Why not say it's releasing in Q1 2020? And then give the exact date once it's gone gold.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

Heavily considering just canceling my Cyberpunk preorder now. FF7R will be commanding my full attention until I finish it.

If you're just interested in 'the latest games,' then Game Pass probably is a better value.

Sony already has an edge for me due to the PS5 being backwards compatible with PS4 software, but I don't really 'do' brand loyalty. I went with the 360 last gen and, if Microsoft played their cards right, I could be convinced to swap again. It's all down to pricing, features, and exclusives for me.

@Ralizah

Yeah the PS5 being able to play my PS4 games is a big plus point and some of my favourite games have been the exclusives like God of War, Spiderman, Horizon Zero Dawn, Last of Us and Uncharted. Xbox can't really compete with that. I've also got plenty of indie games for my Playstation but my Switch is the best for that now. I think Game Pass has got a very good range of games, it definitely has on PC with lots of indie gems and it's a very good deal to save money and still play the games you want. That's the big plus point. If the Xbox is more powerful then I don't mind so much it being more expensive because you need the power for better ray tracing and that's the future of graphics

@Ralizah CDPR makes amazing games, and I'm really looking forward to playing Cyberpunk. But not at launch. TW3 was a mess at launch, and so was Thronebreaker. I couldn't play the latter without encountering a glitch or bug every 30 minutes or so. Their games are great, but require a good amount of patches at launch. Maybe they've learned and Cyberpunk plays incredibly well at launch, but I want to experience it in the best way possible. So waiting 6 months means I can play it on PS5 instead of my vanilla PS4, and if it is a mess at launch, it will hopefully play a lot better by the end of the year. So that's what I'm going to do.

Avengers looked terrible anyway, so I'm probably going to try FF7 instead. Followed by TLOU2 and Ghost of Tsushima later that year. And then Cyberpunk on PS5. Maybe Nintendo will announce some games soon as well... Hoping for Zelda to be released in late 2020.

@Octane I don't mind minor bugs, but buying a game at launch when I won't have the time for it seems wasteful. Besides, I'd ideally like to upgrade my computer before I play it so that I don't have to worry about performance.

Also, this will allow me to play The Witcher 3 at my leisure. I've thought about rushing through the rest of the game, but this way I'll just dip in here and there until the end of the year.
