Sony’s Shuhei Yoshida Explains The Lack Of New Game Announcements At PlayStation Experience

It comes from Sony hosting as many shows this year as they did.

The PlayStation Experience keynote last night was a colossal disaster, a poorly paced, fluffed out conference that showed us little to nothing of worth. A major part of this is the complete lack of actual new announcements at the event- though Ni no Kuni 2 looks incredible, it was also the only major new game announced.

Shuhei Yoshida tackled this question head on yesterday, in a question and answer session that was livestreamed on Twitch. Yoshida says, truthfully enough, that Sony has already had a massive year in terms of major announcements- over E3, Tokyo Game Show, and Paris Games Week, Sony announced The Last Guardian, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Final Fantasy VII, Shenmue 3, Detroit: Become Human, Gravity Rush 2, and Gran Turismo Sport, just to name a few. Sony said, then, that the plan was always to focus on smaller games at PlayStation Experience, rather than the bigger titles.

It’s a fair response, and I don’t begrudge Sony this predicament- holding four major game shows in a single year has to be draining. Sony probably stretched themselves too thin. My personal suggestion in this case would be for Sony to not hold that many shows, not unless they have enough announcements to actually justify that number. As it stands right now, last year’s show reversed a lot of goodwill that Sony has otherwise been garnering.

    That’s what you get when you don’t invest in New games

    • Gamez Rule

      Nonsense and you know it. Count how many new IPs Sony has for PS4 and what’s coming soon for PS4, then count the Xbones, you’ll see that Sony’s PS4 has more new games than MS’s xbone.

    • Psionicinversion

      They havnt got that many, alot of them they bought exclusivity for them

    • Gamez Rule

      Doesn’t matter how Sony got the new IPS, it’s getting them to their consoles that matters.

    • Psionicinversion

      Oh right so when Sony steals games it’s fine but when MS does it it’s bad? Gotcha

    • Gamez Rule

      Really? How has Sony stollen games? And what *so called platform* has the most piracy, oh yeah it’s PC.

      Dont make out console games are stollen from PC, and to be fair IF gamers want the best games offer they need a Console as well as a PC just like myself. Lmao!

    • Psionicinversion

      No they don’t. Most console games been mediocre at best. Ah yeah bringing up pc piracy yet console gamers love to buy there game 2nd hand not paying the developer at all

    • Gamez Rule

      So your point is what? & How has Sony stollen games as you still haven’t explained?

      Was I incorrect about PC & piracy..Nope.

      As for stating “console games been mediocre at best” you are now talking BS as the highest rated games belong to consoles and have the most sold too. You have always seemed to be biased towards PC and even worse shown yourself against consoles and it’s games users etc.

      Fact is that no matter how powerful a PC is when compared to consoles if games are only on consoles PC misses out ( and vice versa ) hence a gamer should support more than one platform to play games, and not talk down a platform in a way that’s untrue like you do.

    • Psionicinversion

      Highest rated hahaha yeah keep to your scores there still mediocre. Might be good to you guys but you’ve had years of disappointment so your easily pleased.

      They’ve taken games that were in development for pc and paid for exclusivity I.e. Stolen

      I’ve got a ps4 with these so called highly rated games and I’m not impressed at all with them

    • Gamez Rule

      You posted “You Guys”…What is a You Guy? as I own ALL platforms or gamings from a phone to PC? But I will not stand by and see gamers put down due to using only a console.

      Also how has Sony Stollen games? Still no answer from yourself.

      And yes the fact is that consoles not only hold the highest rated games, but also the most sold game series belongs to console games.

      You may own a PS4, but I own multi-platforms and support them while you seem to put down anything that isn’t PC..

    • Psionicinversion

      I’ve just told you what they do!

      I don’t put anything down that isn’t pc I put it down because its not that great and of course tons of games get sold on consoles because you’ve got nothing else play

    • Gamez Rule

      You’ve told me nothing apart from here you go again.. ” tons of games get sold on consoles because you’ve got nothing else play”..Are you that blind you cannot see the bigger picture lmao! If it wasn’t for consoles and PC you wouldn’t be enjoying 90% of the games today on these platforms.

      Put down consoles as well as it games & players as much as you like as I don’t care but what I stated is above is correct and you have shown 100% you are against anything apart from PCs.

    • Psionicinversion

      It’s not just Sony it’s MS as well. Where do you think all these new games come from? Do you think there all sprung out of sonys idea factory?? Nope

      Looks like someone’s getting defensive about me saying his precious platform isn’t that good hahaha.

    • Gamez Rule

      You can say whatever you like but unless it’s PC you sl*g it off or put it down, everyone can see that so it’s not me that becoming defensive.

      I have been gaming for many years, on the console and PC which has given me many years of memories, yet all that comes from you is Sony this and MS that and consoles this consoles that in a bad way and always comparing them to PCs, but when it comes to PC you pipe up and defend it like there is no tomorrow.

      How are Sony stealing games from PC? How are console gamers taking away money from developers when piracy is at it’s highest in PC gaming? Please shed soon light on these matters,

    • Psionicinversion

      Piracy at its highest lmao its at an all time low actually so your wrong again

    • Gamez Rule

      Wrong again…where was I wrong in the first place?..Please tell?

      Also how are Sony stealing from PC?

      All you can do is change the subject, but everyone knows this already. Fact is consoles are selling better than every before ( Sony PS4 is selling really good ) and for people like you to come out and put them down just shows how sad they really are.

    • Psionicinversion

      Wrong at everything. I’ve already told you many times about how there stealing from pc but you refuse to take in what I’m saying.

      Yeah the ps4 is selling fast but that’s only because people had to wait 8 years for something else and were itching for a new console

    • Gamez Rule

      OMG, you are so vain lol.

      How am I wrong at everything?
      How are Sony stealing from PC?

      You have NOT answered anything at all and people can read through these posts to see you’re chatting sh*t when you say you have answered me lol.

      As for waiting 8 years, a little fact for you, not one MS home console has outsold a Sony home console, so please don’t make out you know what you’re talking about.

      Fact is that to play all games you need more than just a PC, Simple but truthful.

    • Psionicinversion

      Vain… Think you need get a dictionary and look up what the word means

      When did I say anything about ms being Sony in sales? Um I didn’t. The consoles lasted 8 years that’s why this gen is selling fast because people want something new. Think you need learn how to read because your seeing stuff that isn’t even there

    • Gamez Rule

      It has nothing to do with sales ( but time ) like you pointed out and to be fair that has nothing to do with the above statements but like usual you change the subject to NOT answer the questions at hand. Fact is you have avoided the questions placed upon you from your own posts and everyone can see that.

      You big up PC gaming while putting down consoles and it’s games or gamers. You have avoided the questions..*How am I wrong at everything? and How are Sony stealing from PC? and all you can do is change the subject to not answer them even when YOU was the one saying these things lmao!

      I have been gaming on PC since I can remember while also owning consoles and that’s the olny way to enjoy what gaming offers people. To say otherwise is clueless,

    • Psionicinversion

      Ok ill write it so even an idiot can understand. A game being made for pc/multiplat MS/Sony come wading in with bags of money, exclusivity so its on the platform only so its stolen from us. Understand????

      I havnt bigger up pc gaming at all I just said consoles suck that’s all.

      Actually your the one changing subject taking about how pc piracy is at its highest ever which is completely wrong then talking about how fast consoles are selling. Think you best think what you write next time

    • Gamez Rule

      Hahhahah.. you think that if another company starts buying into a game or DLC it’s stealing, lol you truly are an idiot then. How is that game classed as *stolen* when it’s been sold and supported LMAO!

      People can scan the threads and posts and see that all you do is big up PCs and it’s games while putting down consoles (( just like you done in the post I’m replying too )) “”consoles suck that’s all.”” shows 100% what I’m stating to be true and correct.

      Fact is no matter how much you don’t like to hear this there is more piracy on PC than consoles. You can defend the PC ( like usual ) but your views don’t change that.

      How can you even call yourself a gamer LMAO! Without consoles and it’s gaming support by developers the PC wouldn’t have these games either. Hence why I own more than one gaming platform and a PC and take each platform for what if offers, unlike you.

    • Psionicinversion

      I do big up pcs not in this conversation though. The consoles are pathetic though. I’ll change my mind next gen if they can actually hit the resolution on every game that’s been standard for at least 5 years. Waste of time this gen is there just poor mans PC’s. Anyway its like talking to a brick wall with your laterz

    • Gamez Rule

      So after all the above you now agreed that you big up PCs and put down consoles.. That shows you are far from a gamer and truth be told everyone knows that already. And just for the record a games resolution and frame-rates are not what makes a game worth playing ( it’s only a small part of the bigger picture ).

      You can call consoles pathetic and class them as a poor mans PC, but fact still stands that with the console market and it’s money being made from the game sales helps PC get games as developers have already pointed out time and time again. So a closed minded person like yourself while calling yourself a gamer is funny at best.

      I’m glad I own PC and consoles as well as other gaming devices to support gaming in general instead of putting down the hard work from developers etc just because the games come over to consoles and not PC ☺

    • kevin

      An Xbox console has never outsold a Sony console even when the 360 had a year head start and was way cheaper explain that. Never mind I’ll explain it for you Sony is a more well known and loved brand compared to xbox and that’s not ever going to change.

  • Truth™

    And the damage control continues

    John Derp and Rscottycuck will drown themselves in tears

  • PlayStation4Life!

    Man, the show is just a huge disappointment, i was expecting more from the show. I know the PlayStation has a lot of exclusives. So why didnt they showed ???

  • Mr Xrat

    Lack of new game announcements? PSX had twice as many new game announcements as MS did at Gamescom.

    • Psionicinversion

      Games that no one cares about

    • Gamez Rule

      Games that no one cares about?

      Ok just to name one game that was shown is *Don’t Starve Together* that game alone on Steam is rated 96% via 18,736 reviews. So please don’t say no games were shown that no one cares about when in fact they do care about games being shown and are in fact highly rated.

    • Psionicinversion

      Not new though is it. I find it funny how they have to raid the pc just to get some games. Then again it’s nothing new they’ve been stealing pc games for decades

    • Gamez Rule

      Nonsense, PC gamers also want what’s on consoles so please don’t make it out that consoles raid PC for games when in fact it’s a case of both doing it.

      But the point still stands on what I posted.

    • Truth™

      So many PC games, rscottycuck. Between demanding shekels for Sub-1080P PS2 emulation, PSVR completely breaking on stage and all the PC games. PSX was the best advertisement for PC gaming yet 🙂

  • Gamez Rule

    Make your own mind up about the PS Show,, Here it is in it’s full showing

  • Lacerz

    Yeah, can’t wait for that Detroit: Zero Dawn. Horizon: Become Human looks good too.

    Nice work proofing.
