So, if boss is shit, employees aren't allowed to be good?
One damn bad showcase and we're right back to ignoring the fact that the PS brand is flourishing like never before right now.

Ridiculous how fickle some people are.

Was it bad? Sure. VERY underwhelming, stapled two State of Plays together, etc. Absolutely.

Are they "sh*t bosses" who "don't know how to run a company" as I've seen some claim? No. That's a childish, ridiculous take. They deserve flak for this, absolutely, but calling for firings over this is asinine.

I like how @Yurinka keeps spreading his evangelism but can't answer the question about playing revenue. Nor that this year will be the worst for new releases since 2013.

Hermen's been touring the studios but ok.

I love how serious and not-at-all reactionary and childish these takes are, guys.
Never been a fan of Hermen as Head off WWS. I've always said he's the Phil Spencer of Playstation and this is going years back from my Twitter. He's not the man for the job and his out of touch tweet right after the showcase cemented that for me. I'm just glad many others have finally started questioning his leadership.

The game looks next-gen but as usual with Sony games they are never good enough and the hardcore complains it looks like DLC.

That's 2 weeks after TOTK came out to high praise everywhere. A ps3 looking game.
I already explained, it's youtube compression removing a lot of the "wow factor" from these gameplay reviews. The same thing happened with HFW, a PS5 game all compressed doesn't look all that much better than a PS4 game running natively.

With that said, there is something off about how this Spider-man 2 game looks, the black suit looks terrible and I don't think the trailer was properly thought out to show the game looking it's best.

Nobody ever said that Uncharted 4, TLoU Part II, R&C Rift Apart, etc, didn't look good enough, people said they were faked. :ROFLMAO:

This is the worst year for Playstation Studios releases (plus 2nd party) since 2013. Anyone denying this is delusional. They either release 3 or 4 AAA bangers at least next year, or I really want to see what the excuses will be.

I like how @Yurinka keeps spreading his evangelism but can't answer the question about playing revenue. Nor that this year will be the worst for new releases since 2013.

This is only the worst year if you incredibly disingenuously include two $10 upgrade "directors cuts" as full games in 2021 then also conveniently forget that this year has already also released Horizon: Call of the Mountain and has Helldivers 2, Firewall Ultra, and Stellar Blade announced for this year.

Even without 2 directors cuts, 2021 had double the AAA games, non DLC. Should we remove Burning Shores from this year?

As far as VR releases go, I didn't include them in any year, so perhaps you should take your bootlicking elsewhere.

You've always said this?

Really?

Even when they were churning out "bangers" to the point everyone was cheerleading him and Jim? Now one bad showcase and he's "the Phil Spencer of PlayStation"?

Good God, grow up.

Where it’s at.
Sorry to break it to many, Jim and Herman aren't going anywhere if anything thy will probably get bonuses for pushing the brand forward.

Also this pessimism and lack of faith in Sony is really weird. Sony has proven time and time again that quality games will come and in good numbers. We know countless games in the pipeline we just have to wait. Dev cycles indeed have gotten longer.
Some people just have to shit their pants whenever something doesn’t meet their preconceptions.

It is tiresome beyond belief.
