Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida Confirms Holding Back Announcements From E3 Presser

Says more news coming “later this year.”

Posted By | On 14th, Jun. 2017 Under News


If you felt like the Sony E3 2017 conference didn’t have as many new announcements as last year, then you’re not alone. However, it’s not like the company has nothing to show. According to Shuhei Yoshida, Sony Worldwide Studios president for SIE, the company purposely withheld a few things.

Speaking to Indonesian site JagatPlay, when asked if something bigger would be coming at Tokyo Game Show or PlayStation Experience, Yoshida said, “We have no plans to talk about [Sic], but there are things we have held – we chose not to show during this E3 – of course there will be some more news coming out of our teams later this year.”

Though Sony’s conference didn’t have a lot of new announcements – save for Shadow of the Colossus’ remake and Monster Hunter World – it still had a ton of great games like Spider-Man, Days Gone, God of War, Detroit: Become Human and so on. What were your thoughts on the conference? Let us know in the comments.

    They sound like Sony will get desperate since MS won E3 and start announcing things that are 5-6 years away… good for them. For the players!

    • Ocelot forgot his meds

      Yup

    • Holeybartender

      All games shown by Sony have a release date of this year and early 2018.

    • Dougdec92

      Since MS won E3, sounds like a line from sheldon, dude you made my day…lol

  • Starman

    You d*mn right , …. all 3 were weak but at the end of the day,… MS had a stronger showing… Stop fanboying…

    • Gamez Rule

      Nope, MS E3 was crap. No exclusive games were shown that makes you want to buy into the Xbone brand in 2017 let alone 2018. There was nothing shown to make Sony gamers jump ship either.

      We needed to be shown a huge range of first party titles and exclusive titles to justify the purchase, and MS failed as 90% of what was shown can be played on PS4.

      Where were the games to entice me into buying and justifying the purchase of a new £450 version of a console that has sat near my TV unit not being supported the whole of 2017 by MS?

      At least Sony showed games people care about and that’s with holding back games lol.

    • Cenk Algu

      60m PS4 owners realy take care of those exclusives since HZD sold only 3m lol!!!!! You guys are nothing but joke.

    • Paul Garrison

      Strong showing of other people’s games.

    • Dougdec92

      MS just told us that they were feeding the dragon with grass.

  • Starman

    MS didn’t pull out the heavy hitters , so Sony was able to keep the fake tech demos in the crate until Gamescon in Aug or Sep.. facts

  • Learned Handgun

    So they show repeats of games that have a “long road ahead” before release? I guess they held back the game ideas that were merely discussed at a brainstorming season.

    • Holeybartender

      OR Sony wanted to show actual gameplay in their presser so they excluded them for not having any. Games take years to make,they can’t have only cutscenes and trailers every year. Sony gets alot of flak for showing games too early and by waiting until there is gameplay eliminates some of that.

    • Learned Handgun

      Did every game shown include some actual gameplay?

    • Holeybartender

      Yup

    • Learned Handgun

      Well that would help explain it. PS does have some good looking exclusives coming out. I’ve debated getting a PS4 but I can’t find the time to even play all the multi-plats. Waiting to play Dishonored 2, FFXV and RE7 on the Xbox.

  • Holeybartender

    IGN’s preshow at E3 that had games not in the Sony presser with sitdowns with the developers and some games are on the showroom floor not in there too,like Matterfall (I didn’t see it if it was.

  • Paul Garrison

    PSX is where and when they will announce the most new stuff.

  • Dougdec92

    when your competitor is great at sportsmanship and wishes the greens goodluck, you sure would expect the blue-blooded platform to also be polite not to trounce the green-eyed monster’s reveal of a new console by holding back some games which the green eyed monster’s new box is in sore need of, so as not to steal the beast’s…erm sorry pet’s spotlight.

  • Dougdec92

    Another with a poor math mentality i reckon….i bet he skived classes when it was time for ratio and proportions.

  • Dougdec92

    lol, now i like that finisher…lol.
