While Not A Knockout Blow, Sony Delivers Several Body Shots To The Competition At Paris Games Week

I was one who had wondered if Sony skipping a conference at Gamescom was an error in judgement as it allowed Microsoft to seemingly gain some momentum on them. I was told it was really not that big a deal as with the Paris Games Week, Tokyo Game show, and their own conference upcoming, Sony was clearly taking the time to make their announcements and wanted to offer something much more than they had at E3.

The livestream event was compelling and if this was a prize fight, I would have to say that Sony successfully landed several body blows to their opponents and really impressed with news of Tekken 7 Gran Turismo Sport, Boundless, Horizon: Zero Dawn, No Man’s Sky, and amazing footage from Wild, Detroit, and Uncharted 4: A Thieves End to name just a few of the awesome moments.
The Playstation VR news was about as good as one could get short of a ship date and price being announced, as announcing that several of the announced games would offer support for Playstation VR was amazing enough, but to see the footage from Rigs, Battlezone, and Robinson: The Journey was simply breathtaking. I loved that a new Until Dawn was announced as I had written a few weeks early that a VR until Dawn would be a game changer, and many told me that it would not work for VR and that I was an idiot for suggesting it. I guess Sony thought differently and decided to see if they could make anew VR game in the Until Dawn universe.

I also liked seeing the news from third-party developers about the deals that had been reached with Sony for exclusive or timed content as it continues to underscore that Sony is showing no signs of slowing down, and with the all-important Holiday Shopping season coming up, their bundles are numerous, diverse and strategically priced to be very attractive to consumers.
While they did not deliver a knockout blow as yet, the fight rages on as Sony closes in on 30 million PS4 units sold, and if it was not a knockout, it was certainly several body blows and kicks to the groin for their competition who despite the best efforts, have not been able to close the sales gap between the systems in any significant way. It will be interesting to see what Nintendo and Microsoft do next, as it really is a great time to be a gamer.
