The Sony E3 2018 conference is finally over, bringing a whirlwind of exciting announcements to the table. Delving deep into its exclusives, the press conference showed us some new gameplay footage of The Last of Us Part II, Ghost of Tsushima, and (finally!) Death Stranding. However, they still had plenty of other tricks and announcements under their sleeve, especially when it came to third-party titles. While Microsoft wowed the crowd with their titles yesterday, Sony still kept a few games up their sleeve for their E3 2018 conference.
With the E3 2018 conference still fresh in our minds, gamers have invaded social media to gush over the latest announcements, and what better platform to spaz out over the Sony games than on Twitter? Netizens have been tweeting during the conference, sharing all sorts of quips and quotes on their feed. That said, we’ve gathered up the best tweets on the Sony E3 2018 conference.
Sony did things a bit differently this time around for their E3 2018 conference. Instead of sticking with one main room, they decided to split the venues based on their games in an attempt to make a more immersive experience. While the concept certainly looked great on paper, it seems like plenty of viewers believed otherwise.
People called out the Sony E3 2018 conference as tedious, having to switch locations during a single conference. Moreover, there was something of an awkward pause whenever the audience had to switch venues, leaving live streamers with commentators instead of an actual emcee. Compared to Microsoft, there were a good handful of awkward pauses that seemed to kill the flow and excitement. Thankfully, after the first switch, the conference seemed to flow better with fewer pauses.
Awkward flow aside, most gamers seem to love all of the exclusive announcements. Sony placed a lot of focus on their games this year, which was great for titles such as The Last of Us Part II, Death Stranding, and Ghost of Tsushima. While the company has certainly taken their sweet time delivering actual footage, the wait paid off. Giving gamers a better look at real gameplay instead of more cinematics managed to turn some heads around, and Sony kept the ball rolling with announcements such as Closer and the highly anticipated Resident Evil 2 Remake.
Of course, it wouldn’t be an E3 2018 conference without a bit of competition. There are plenty of lively discussions, especially when it comes to who had the better press conference: Microsoft or Sony. There’s certainly a lot to compare between both events, from game announcements to the conference presentation. Not to mention that this isn’t even counting Nintendo, who’s slated to hold their press conference tomorrow.
The Sony E3 2018 conference had plenty of surprises for its fans, ultimately boiling down to some juicy gameplay reveals. While we’re still trying to make sense of that Death Stranding trailer, seeing some actual gameplay was definitely a step towards the right direction. As for The Last of Us Part II and Ghost of Tsushima, the only thing missing right now are some actual release dates.
Now that Sony and Microsoft have each delivered an impressive conference, it’s up to Nintendo to round out the show and end E3 2018 with a bang.
