Sony: I Don't Want To See Anything You "Shouldn't Reveal Yet"
Like any PlayStation fan, I'm excited about that PlayStation experience event coming up in December.
The two-day gathering in Las Vegas is gonna be pretty special; in fact, Sony's bragging that it'll be "unprecedented" and executive Scott Rohde even said during a recent PlayStation Blogcast that they might show off stuff "we shouldn't show you yet."
And that's where you lose me.
Publishers have got to stop doing this. I believe we saw Uncharted 4: A Thief's End too early (haven't seen anything besides that one teaser for a while), and it seems obvious now that they should've waited on exposing The Last Guardian. It seems like every year, we come across a bunch of games that really didn't need to be revealed; Watch Dogs is another good example. The hype just spirals out of control, which inevitably leads to ridiculous expectations when the game finally arrives.
The Order: 1886 could be another game that wasn't quite ready to be revealed and in fact, we've heard Ready at Dawn say they were sort of pressured into showing it before they were ready. Honestly, there's plenty of great stuff on the horizon. If what you have to show isn't ready, it isn't ready. Somehow, we'll manage to survive.
