Final Thoughts: From what I’ve seen it was a lukewarm presentation. We saw more of the same titles with a little bit more info and gameplay but nothing that blew us out of the water. We received a lot of Playstation 5 updates for Playstation 4 games which is a good thing, However we need to keep in mind we are still within the launch window of the next generation of consoles. Which means theres little to show out side of smaller/ indie titles.
