Hype like this that actually makes me cautious. Don’t over hype shit and make people anticipate crazy things just to see some mediocre to good titles. Anyways Dino Crisis is going to be revealed. Don’t say Mista didn’t call it GAF
this is also my thought process. They do pretty much say this every year and while the last few years havent been terrible, they havent been game changing. 2017’s for example was pretty boring. The sole focus on scorpio, tech demo-esque “4k” talk and the to-be mediocre games like crackdown 3, sea of thieves and state of decay 2 taking center stage and absolutely no mainline halo as a buffer made it a bit of a snoozefest.

Arguably sea of thieves is better now but it was pretty bland at launch and prior.

Currently i have mixed feelings on gears 5 but im hyped as hell for halo infinite so this year could go either way for me.

One of the smartest things about how Sony has managed their marketing over the last few years is they've basically built around a very movie-like style. They basically pitch their flagship products like Hollywood tentpole releases, so each title is an "event". Very much like the MCU, each success has elevated the next, and as there haven't been any flops to disrupt the build, its gotten them a ton of momentum.

By comparison MS have been far less focused, mainly pushing franchise and ecosystem, which is more of a maintenance-mode approach than one which is driving their brand forwards. The problem they have is that even with their newly acquired studios they seem to be pivoting more towards a Netflix-style of approach, which is more product, but again more about supporting a service structure than elevating profile.

Unless they dedicate a ton of time to Anaconda 2 is to long. A lot of the 3rd party games will he shown elsewhere also. Cut it to 1:15 for current generation and a few minutes for anaconda and call it a day. I really hoping for for announcement of more OG xbox games BC and game pass deals like last year.

More annoying SJW crap forced down our throats. Why must there be a 'pride' month? There are no heterosexual 'pride' months or days.

Also why not add the 'H' to LGBTQ? You know the heterosexuals who make up 96% of the population.

Just a boring subject at this point, the entire world giving something x1000 the importance it really deserves, why? because politicians want it that way so all the media and basically every company are into it, if something they should promote respect towards everyone no matter how they are, but straight up promoting sexual tendencies? even to kids? ... also if you manifest against it you are considered the worst of the worst or even could get fined for hate-speech, the age we live in.

What is the title of this thread?

And what did Aaron G say?
So because they allotted 2 hours for it and now it might come in in under 2 hours it’s not true?

What if they timed it for 120 mins and things go long and it went over 2 hours?

I guess that would make it equally untrue?

I guess on Sunday we will find out.

I’m sure if it only runs 110 mins we will all be dissapointed.

It might have even gone 150 to allow for some overrun. But locking down broadcast time is timely and expensive. So they probably said give us 2 hours give or take, and people ran with it as it showed up on thier PVR.

Nobody wants to have thier closer cut off because they didn’t allot enough time.
