Sony’s Paris Games Week Presentation Almost Made Up For Their E3 Showcase

For many gamers, Sony has owned E3 the last few years in large part thanks to their impressive showcases and strong lineup of exclusives. At E3 2017, many thought that their presentation was lacking and as such, were disappointed with what they were given. This is not to say that it was bad, but when comparted to past offerings and the fact that Nintendo is selling very well with the Nintendo Switch, and that Microsoft has the Xbox One X pending, people had started to wonder if Sony was losing their grip on the top spot in the console marketplace.

Today Sony kicked off Paris Games Week with a showcase that featured a look at several of their upcoming games as well as reveals of seven as yet unannounced titles. The showcase was broadcast to a worldwide audience online and featured new looks at many anticipated games such as EA Star Wars Battlefront 2, Call of Duty: World War 2, and the upcoming Spider-man game and the new God Of War game as well.

DLC was also featured as new content for Horizon: Zero Dawn, and Destiny 2 were revealed.

What really surprised me was how different Detroit: Become Human has become as well as the numerous Playstation VR titles in the work and featured everything from casual to more advanced gameplay.

The big finale with a raw and gripping new scene from The Last of Us 2 shows that Sony is not backing down from the pending release of the Xbox One X nor the strong sales of the Nintendo Switch.

The Playstation 4 system is coming up on its 5th year of release and Sony is doing what has allowed them to dominate this generation of gaming consoles; offering a wide range of games as well as numerous exclusives.

Some will no doubt complain that there were not bigger titles revealed nor more in-depth looks at games already announced. We did not get to see Days End as an example. However with the Playstation Experience coming up in December, Sony likely had to make the hard decisions to hold off on more reveals and announcements as they need to keep something for fans to debate and look forward to.

For now, Sony did a short and sweet presentation that for me was better than their E3 offering and provided a renewed confidence for their upcoming slate of games.  

The question of is will what Sony revealed today be enough to satisfy gamers who have eagerly awaited release dates on previously announced titles as well as anticipated releases. For now we have to wait and see but for me, I think Sony stepped up and continued to do what they do best.

 

Here are some trailers from the show.
