Sad about E3? Yeah, OK, nobody but E3 is really that sad about E3. But it’s still summer convention season, and we still want to hear about all the new and upcoming games being worked on, right? In steps the Summer Game Fest, which is a multi-month celebration of gaming events. The PlayStation 5 leg of the show is kicking off in just a few minutes.

“Produced as an all-digital, virtual show, Summer Game Fest Live on YouTube Gaming will give YouTube’s global audience a front row seat to the biggest video game announcements in June and July from the top gaming publishers and platforms. Programming will include live pre-shows with predictions and live post-shows with reactions, special guest interviews with top names in gaming and entertainment, and commentary from global YouTube Gaming creators from countries such as Brazil, Germany, India, Italy, Mexico, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States. The first event will kick off at 3:00 PM ET / Noon PT on Thursday, June 11 for PlayStation 5 – The Future of Gaming and will include a live pre-show with Geoff Keighley and YouTube creators recounting their favorite PlayStation memories and predicting which games they might see revealed. Immediately following the live reveal event, Keighley will be joined by industry insiders and YouTube creators for a post-show with reactions to the news and additional details on what was just revealed.”

We’ll be updating this post as the show rolls along if there’s anything relevant to MMO players, though we’re expecting much more next week for the PC Gaming Show itself.

As expected, not too much huge news for MMORPGs. We still don’t know how much the PS5 itself, will cost, though we do know it’s still expected this holiday season; it’ll launch with a few MMO-ish titles, including Destiny 2, Fortnite, and Warframe. And GTAO is coming to PlayStation 5 in the bottom of 2021.

“The new generation versions of GTAV will feature a range of technical improvements, visual upgrades and performance enhancements to take full advantage of the latest hardware, making the game more beautiful and more responsive than ever. And for the massive and vibrant community of Grand Theft Auto Online players worldwide, the journey through the ever-evolving, shared world of GTA Online will continue on to the new generation with more new updates including additional GTA Online content exclusive to the new consoles and PC. There will also be a new standalone version of GTA Online coming in the second half of 2021, which will be available for free exclusively for PlayStation 5 players during the first three months. Additionally, all PlayStation Plus members on PlayStation 4 will get GTA$1,000,000 (deposited into their in-game Maze Bank account within 72 hours of log-in) each month they play GTA Online until the launch of GTA Online on PlayStation 5.”

So far all they showed were kids games

If the ps5 is so powerful why are the products for it all so… childish?

Hopefully they bring back competitive gaming with large teams

More MAG, less fortnite

I’m still supporting my hypothesis that nowadays games are 95% graphics and 5% substance, and it keeps showing more and more. Even the UE5 tech demo showed the same thing.

What good are graphics this detailed if the game itself still feels like PS1 game? GTA5 is a good example – you can’t enter every building, you can’t interact with every object, you can’t interact with every NPC in the world… so what’s the point of having nice graphics if we are going to be playing the same games we played 20 years ago?

I haven’t found a single new game (aside from F2P Online FPS games, since they are the same and it doesn’t really matter, it’s about how well the shooting works for you) that I enjoyed playing more than and hour at best, I keep playing HoMM3, AoE2, Diablo2, Worms Armageddon and other classics on my top of the line gaming PC… kinda ironic when I can run the same games on a cheap tenth hand 2005 PC.

Yawn, more exclusives/exclusivity. Boring.

Demon souls, horizon zero dawn and spiderman are all that got me hyped, not sure I’m going to be a day one purchase though. That will be the new xbox for me, Gamepass is too good to not keep going on the next system.

There were a couple of interesting titles to me (Project Athia, Horizon Zero Dawn Forbidden Lands, Miles Morales Spiderman and Kena), but most of it looked pretty bland and underwhelming.

Was hoping Bethesda may have some more Starfield info but no such luck :( Ghostwire’sgameplay looked a little underwhelming too, looked more like a VR game.

After having seen the tech demo I was honestly hoping to be blown away, but frankly the demo looked better than most of the showcase :)

Casually watched the event while working. Nothing on the MMO front, but I liked that they showed a mixture of gameplay/cinematics across a pretty diverse spectrum of games.

Stray was my game of the show for sure. YOU CAN PLAY A CAT WITH A BACKPACK LIVING IN A WORLD OF TV HEADED ROBOTS?! I don’t need to know anything more, I’m completely sold on it.

I think all of them were gameplay footages

Plenty of in-engine stuff, but pre-rendered rather than actual gameplay, like for Horizon. But that’s totally fine by me, its most of these games first outings and they likely want to keep actual gameplay under wraps for later announcements. We got a solid look at pretty much everything in the lineup either way, I’m not displeased at all.

At least outside of the lack of price/date (meh) or its the design of the console which…seems functional (lots of venting!) but not necessarily attractive IMO.

I wasnt impressed at all. 95% of the games looked like they could be easily played on current gen consoles.

Other than Kena: Bridge of Spirits, like you I felt they all pretty much looked like current gen games. Frankly the PS5 tech demo looked more appealing than most of the showcase.

well, thats because the tech demo is literally just pushing the hardware to its limits for funsies.

And you don’t think the games should be doing the same? then what is the point of the new tech? lol

Graphically, the shit looked stunning

Content wise, shit looked shitty

This is nothing new for a console launch though, we haven’t seen first year launch titles that actually look like next-gen games since the N64 and likely never will again.
