We’re four days away from Sony’s 2013 E3 press conference, and we’ve already given what we want to see from Sony at their conference on Monday night.
But what do we not want to see?
Well, I could just rehash the opposite of the, “What we want to see at E3″ post, but where’s the fun in that. So, here’s what Sony should not do come showtime.
No Stupid Tech Demos:
Please, for the love of god Sony, don’t give us anymore silly tech demos like what we saw last year for the WonderBook. Sure, interactivity is nice and all, but when it comes to the major press conference, it’s better to not have people awkwardly embarrass themselves on stage while trying to get a still in beta piece of technology to work properly. I mean really Sony, do you really want to try and show off a new tech product and have it turn out like the Kinect, formerly Project Natal, demo did? WELL BAM!
Major Focus on the PS Vita:
The PlayStation Vita is a neat little gadget, but in the grand scheme of things, it shouldn’t — and better not — be a focal point of Sony’s press conference on Monday. With a new major console coming this holiday season, the PS4 should be all the company talks about. Don’t do something that will get you ridiculed, Sony. Play this one smart.
Don’t Focus On Family/Kid Friendly Titles:
Let’s be real, the E3 press conference is for the gaming media and the hardcore gamers. Casual gamers and young children will not be logging online to watch the stream at 8:20EST on Monday night. For that reason, focus on titles that your core audience will appreciate. Don’t do what Microsoft did last year and show off a Sesame Street game that no one in the audience gives two ***** about.
Showing those types of titles in the middle of major projects produces a major buzzkill to the event, and can ruin the event for those watching who truly matter: the purchasers.
