Their big talking points didn't even come to fruition.
The SSD was the crown jewel of the PS5, 2 years into the generation, where has all this power gone? Where is this "paradigm shift" that Sony spoke of? Will we have to wait another year, two years to see it? Will it be in Spider-Man 2?
Scorn will be the first game to use DirectStorage on PC and it's coming out next month, presumably closing the gap that existed thanks to the PS5's so-called SSD. In 2 years, Sony didn't even have the time to show off their alien technology and gain a significant lead over their competitors.
The second talking point was the "We believe in generations" Once again, 2 years in, where are those "next-gen games"? The only looker that takes full advantage of the full suite of hardware is Rift Apart. GOWR is their next big game and is also releasing on PS4. Hell, all of their big releases this year, HFW, Gran Turismo, and GOWR are all coming to PS4. They got Spider-Man 2 for PS5 next year but Microsoft also has Starfield and Redfall.
Was it once again a case of Sony overpromising and underdelivering?
