Sony Disappoints at E3 2017 With a Lack of New Games

Adjust Comment Print

Game publisher Sony Entertainment debuted the first significant gameplay trailer for the upcoming Spider-Man at the E3 game convention in Los Angeles, California. All the while Spidey quips in his adorably obnoxious way. That's an attach rate of more than 8 games per PS4.

The showing of Spider-Man to end what was a show featuring a ton of announcements I had not expected going in made for a really great showing. What's unclear is if Miles is the protagonist of the game, an NPC, or perhaps a secondary player character. "The PS4 platform is in its prime, with the industry's best lineup of exclusive and partner titles slated to release this year, taking full advantage of the power of the PS4 system". This footage showed the protagonist, a cookie cutter bearded man, taking on an enemy outpost using diluted stealth mechanics, and it somehow looked even more derivative than it did previous year. The leader of the Demons, Martin Li a.k.a. Mister Negative is one of the few modern Spidey villains to make the leap to video games. Their objective was to show continued momentum for the PlayStation 4, and provide a little fillip for PlayStation VR.

What did you think about the latest footage from Spider-Man?

US Box-Office: 'The Mummy' misfires, 'Wonder Woman' still going strong
It's the lowest opening for any " Mummy " film since its modern revival, which began in 1999 in a remake starring Brendan Fraser . Night Shyamalan's " Split " has seen even domestic and foreign earnings that have added up to over $275 million worldwide.

Other exclusive titles now in the works at Sony that may appear include Days Gone and Detroit: Become Human. We also see a lot of environmental interaction opportunities, and it appears as though they're all highlighted in the world (so you'll see those opportunities when they're near you). This portion of the game was heavy on quick-time events, as you'll have to perform button taps with split-second precision to keep Spider-Man alive - and stop the destruction from hitting civilians.

The future of PlayStation will be unveiled with new reveals, trailers, and more for games like God of War and Spider-Man.
