Playstation E3 2017 Revisited

Playstation E3 2017 was what I would call a calmer event, there were big games though the general conference was shorter. The biggest presence for Sony at the event was on the show floor which was massive in scale offering many pre-booked opportunities to play the games. They still had some smaller booths to check out indie based titles, but they've really streamlined the process with their app setup. The big highlight that went on to be a massive success was of course, God of War. This brought an older Kratos back with a young companion, it released on schedule and was incredible. We got the full reveal for Spiderman, that's set to release in later 2018 and it will be interesting to see the reception. It looks great, and Insomniac usually delivers.

Detroit: Become Human was another exclusive, it eventually released just prior to E3 2018. Following that was a Shadow of the Colossus remake announcement that also delivered. There was Uncharted: The Lost Legacy which is a standalone entry in that franchise and arrived according to the schedule. Moving from those large release announced titles, from which there were many we got some updates on Death Stranding and Days Gone which are both still without final release dates. That may not be the case soon however as they're a focus for Playstation E3 2018.

Deals continued with Call of Duty: WWII, Destiny 2 and Star Wars: Battlefront II being displayed. There was also the big win for the Playstation VR as Skyrim was announced (I mean, it would be weird not to have that game on every platform) and also Moss which is really good. I also can't forget about the amazing Horizon Zero Dawn getting a DLC expansion with "The Frozen Wilds". Monster Hunter World was also confirmed, I suppose it was a fairly heavy event overall.

It was just shorter in length, and mostly went to confirm titles going forward. They also had an excellent reception prior to the event, I had thought it was after so it took me awhile to travel over from EA Play. That pre-event was where I was luckily able to jump into Far Cry 5 which looked really good for the short demo. Again, a good show though what I'd perhaps consider tame compared to the years before it. Perhaps I'm just left with super huge reveal expectations from this generation. That being said, they did deliver on release dates without really any fault and the exclusives are top quality.
