There were so many games at PlayStation showcase but was it good enough?

Summary

Prior to the PlayStation Showcase, we dropped a garbage time Soapbox, explaining that Sony couldn’t afford any dead air in its press conference today. But a bizarrely lopsided livestream had us sweating with ten minutes to go: the manufacturer had fallen into every single contractual pitfall we’d anticipated, including another three (!!!) minutes of Deathloop which we could do nothing but laugh at.

This was a bizarrely structured briefing from the Japanese giant, starting with its latest commercial (an odd choice) and ending abruptly with a burst of the first-party games that fans wanted to see. There was plenty of great content in the middle, from Project Eve and Forspoken to Tchia and Ghostwire Tokyo, but this ultimately wasn’t the barnstorming glimpse into the PlayStation 5’s future that Sony needed after a year on hiatus.

Insomniac Games continues to carry the company, and frankly embarrass its first-party peers. Having already released Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles MoralesMarvel’s Spider-Man Remastered, and Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, it returned to confirm it’s working on Marvel’s Wolverine and Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 – with Venom, no less! Some will be frustrated to see the studio transformed into a comic book factory, but these games are killer and sell by the boatload. It’s hard to complain!
