Sony's Event In December Will Surpass Their E3 Showing
Okay, so they haven't spilled the beans yet. They just announced a bunch of games on tap for the event, and nobody is shocked.
But if you really think about it, this could - and should - surpass Sony's E3 2014 showing.
The confirmed titles alone make it a contender for one of the best conferences of the year, and if the rumors are true and Sony unveils a few new PS4 exclusives, it's gonna be epic. I think it's interesting that Sony is pushing this event so hard; they've called it "massive" and they're obviously not pulling any punches. Just about every major upcoming game for their new console might be on display, and that could include brand new projects we've never heard about before.
It almost makes me wonder if this is designed to keep PS4 interest high throughout the holiday season. Remember, they don't really have a high-profile exclusive to help push the new system over the next few months. There's LittleBigPlanet 3 but that doesn't really have the necessary firepower (and don't forget that it's also on PS3). The Xbox One, on the other hand, has Sunset Overdrive and a few others, so one could argue that Microsoft has the holiday edge. Not to mention that recently announced price cut.
But even if Sony is using this as more of a marketing ploy, so what? It could be absolutely incredible!
