State of Play (May 9th 2019) |OT| The promise has been made

Considering how long it's been since we've heard anything at all from the big 3, I don't think it's unreasonable to expect some kind of acknowledgment of a release window or something for 1 of them. Whether that is a simple Spring 2020 or whatever, it at least provides something tangible to look forward to.

This was a State of Play for everybody. All around the world. And if you think FF7:Remake isn't a game "to bring new players to the PS4" then sorry, I can't help you.
Was this show "necessary". No, nothing is "necessary". An E3 conference isn't "necessary". But it's nice.
If you don't like it, you a free to chose NOT to watch it. Simple as that. State of Play is a quick, easy way to show some quick trailers and announcements every now and then. You have always the option not to watch them if they make you so angry.
If I sounded angry I'm sorry to make it looks that way. I'm not. And I did not say that the game is not going to bring new players to ps4. I said two Japanese games are not enough for Jp market.

They japanese market is "mobile gaming" focused. PS4 is a home console. The PS4 will sell ~10 million units in Japan when all is said an then. Just like the PS3. People know what to expect for the PS4, PS5, etc. You will get the most japanese 3rd party multiplatform games, some exclusives from Japan Studio and a few 3rd party console exclusives like Nioh. That'a about it. The main market for PlayStation is the western market. It is what it is.
I feel bad for whoever gets excited for these
You shouldn't, because it was great. A short State of Play with MediEvil, a new exclusive, a few good indie games and FF7 Remake to end the stream. Damn good.

I don't expect anything from anyone sorry, and I definitely don't expect any real information from Square Enix about this game

If it happens? Sure whatever but you're not gonna catch me hoping
Good, best way to go about it all really. Plenty to play in the meantime anyway.

People are not happy because SE did not release any new info or media for FF7R.

People these days are not happy on a constant basis it seems.

It was decent but it needs to be longer IMO.

I also wish it had, I don't know, some kind of identity ? It definitely feels like something's missing here.

I liked it. Good show and everything moved along fast. If Sony was ready to show more of their first-party games then they'd still be doing an E3 conference.

I get that this doesn't replace E3 perse, but every other month of state of play put together would make a decent hour of E3. Not the best of E3 but still. I'm not sure if this format is that good for Sony. I feel like it's a regression for them just like I felt it was for Nintendo. I remember when everyone was on the side of nintendo being stupid to backing off of the stage from e3 and now I don't hear that noise anymore. I'm not fine with it

i don't get the 'outrage' (if any) for this.

Sony stated it's going to be a short stream and people are complaining it's too short? What?

I can now predict that people will be outraged with the next stream having too much indie games even though when sony announced before hand that the stream will be for indie games only.

And then the next outrage for the following stream: Sony announce next days of play stream to be dedicated to PS4 exclusives only.
People outraging: Why are these games only exclusive to PS4? Bummer! This will be perfect for the Switch!!

Posters like the above are the reason why this site is circling down the drain.

Are you the only living soul who gets to decide what is good and what isn't? You need to burst out of your fucking bubble and realise there are people out there who have wildly different tastes from you.
