I’ll be streaming Disco Elysium tonight, June 24 at 8pm EST, starting a new game. If all goes well, audience participation should be enabled, allowing you to vote on dialogue choices! Swing by and say hi/hang out with us for a bit! https://www.twitch.tv/timcad
Once again Sony decided to skip participating in E3 in any direct fashion, instead allowing their presence at the show to be strictly games that “also happen to be” coming to the system. While I assume we may get a Sony-only conference this summer to show off some of their system’s big hitters, not participating in E3 really let Microsoft steal the show (and the press) with their really strong offering.
We’re nearly a year into this console generation already, and most people still haven’t gotten their hands on one. That’s a lot of potential customers that could still be swayed one way or another, and I think Microsoft’s Game Pass continues to be one of the best deals in gaming. So far Microsoft is coming out swinging and appearing to position themselves in a much stronger place than they did last generation.
I don’t know if Sony got used to dominating the last cycle, but if they keep letting Microsoft shout from the rooftops about their exclusives and day-one Game Pass library with no interference, I think they’re going to find themselves fighting an uphill battle.
