E3 2017: Sony Predictions

Each year our editors sit down and make wild and crazy predictions about what we expect to at all of the press conferences at E3 2017. Although most of our predictions are just flat out wrong, every once in a while we nail them.

Do Game Demos Hurt Gamer's Expectations?

Demos are an odd feature of the gaming industry. Some say that demos give us that early tease of a game we’re looking forward to or help us decide whether a game is for us or not. Others argue that game demos don’t show enough of a game to give the player the right idea about the game, or worse they give away too much and make the game feel obsolete.
