Game News PS5: Sony already ready to win back fans disappointed by the PlayStation Showcase?
Highly anticipated, Sony’s PlayStation Showcase was a source of disappointment. However, we must not already give up on seeing the Japanese manufacturer give up in 2023.
The PlayStation Showcase was not unanimous
Sony held one of its key events for its video game department last week. The PlayStation Showcase is a kind of annual meeting where the brand talks, in a big way, about its upcoming projects. It is therefore a question of the release of next video games on the PlayStation 5 and the PlayStation 4 but also of titles intended for the PlayStation VR 2. Jim Ryan, president of Sony Interactive Entertainment, also presented new machines such as (headphones) and the ProjectQ: a portable console to play the PlayStation 5. A PlayStation Showcase that ended with a big gameplay session of one of the most anticipated PS5 exclusives of the year: Marvel’s Spider-man 2.
Despite this hour-long show, fans gave the evening a more than mixed reception. In question, the absence of exclusive flagship manufacturers which have been the subject of rumors for several months. There has been no additional information about the Last of Us multiplayer even though Naughty Dog took the lead by posting a tweet in the aftermath. Besides, there was also a cold shower for those who were waiting for news of a possible remaster of Bloodborne or a sequel to Ghost of Tsushima.

A year 2023 still full of surprises?
But hope gives life. The year 2023 is not yet over, it is likely that PlayStation will keep its biggest cartridges for the summer or back to school. Something that we can all the more believe according to Ethan Gach. Reporter at Kotaku, he recently indicated that other digital conferences were coming from the side of PlayStation but also from Nintendo:
Sources are telling me both PlayStation AND Nintendo will have additional digital showcases this year.
Keep your eyes tuned to this channel and watch the space for more developments in the coming weeks and months… pic.twitter.com/uBF24PjdfM

However, it will be necessary to moderate his enthusiasm. The words of the journalist remain nebulous: we do not know if he is talking about a new PlayStation Showcase, a big event dedicated to Sony consoles, or new State of Play. Appointments welcome but which remains lighter in terms of content. Patience is required and not to brood too much, the Summer Game Festival should satisfy the end of the most impatient.
