Sony offering a better E3 press conference than Microsoft has been pretty much standard ever since they dropped the ball at E3 2006, back when PlayStation 3 was revealed. However, for some reason they didn't deliver the usual standard this year at this year's show in LA, and many people seem to think Microsoft for once had more to offer.
Fortunately, Sony had more to announce during the autumn and at Paris Games Week; the stunningly beautiful game Ghost of Tsushima from Sucker Punch was revealed along with a few smaller titles. This seems to have been a strategy from the very beginning and, from now on, we might not hear about Sony's games as far ahead of their releases as we've been used to in the past.
PlayStation Worldwide Studios SVP Michael Denny explained why to Games Industry:
"I think we're learning and a lot of publishers are learning ... there is a right time to announce games... In the past, I think it's fair to say sometimes we announced games too early. And this is such a great project for Sucker Punch. It's a game they've always really wanted to make themselves. And I think it's the right time to announce that, and they've been working on that game for a long time now. There is great [playable version of the game] already. So we're just excited to let everybody know about it."
Ghost of Tsushima still doesn't have a release date, but hopefully, this might point towards a release sooner than some people might think. Fingers crossed.
