Around 29:04.
I thought this was relevant now with MS outing their different approach.

More tidbits:
+Jason wants to do (later) raport on PS5 line up
+most third party stuff should be cross gen (AssCreed etc)
+MS is going for "titles on as many devices as possible" approach

Interesting, hopefully we'll also have a few next-gen-only games from third parties. At least with regards to something like SFVI, I want it to take full advantage of next-gen hardware (especially considering that it'll likely have cross-play).

Opposites attract.

The exact opposite of Microsoft's strategy.

Sony has the right strategy.

Par for the course with them. I can’t wait for these console and next gen game reveals we see what these games look like.

The whole MS approach is wrong, i'm like "why even mention that?"
You buy a console for its games.

being openly transparent with your fans and not cutting off a 40-50 millions install base to hopefully sell 2 million next gen consoles next holiday isn’t “wrong”, it’s just not something we see often in this industry

I personally find it refreshing :-)

Fantastic. Can't wait to play proper next-gen experiences on my PS5; free of the shackles of jaguar CPUs and HDDs.

I Iove gamepass and i suspect Microsoft is building a significantly better box this time around, but Sony exclusives really are system sellers. If horizon 2 is a lunch title I'm getting a PS5 not an xsx.

Seeing how supposedly the special editions of Assassin’s Crees have been leaked. I will assume that the announcement is very soon, and since rumors have said it will be announced at the PS5 reveal, it’s likely the reveal will be the first week of February.

OT: I think both approaches have pros an cons. However, I personally prefer Sony since it gives you the deciding factor to buy the new console specially if it’s an important game like Horizon Zero Dawn sequel. Otherwise, someone could just wait.

I mean, obviously. Infamous Second Son was a launch window game for PS4 and it's still one of the best looking games this entire generation. Their 1st Party's are going to really showcase the PS5, especially at or around launch.

Microsoft going much more pro consumer this gen and I'm 100% okay with it. Sony relays heavily on hardware sales to push software so this makes perfect sense for them. I do think it's a bummer sony didnt reserve TLoU2 or Ghost for ps5 instead of remastered editions.
