    Sony indefinitely delays tomorrow's PS5 gameplay reveal

    And other launches are cancelled so focus isn't taken away from the murder of George Floyd.

    Re: Sony indefinitely delays tomorrow's PS5 gameplay reveal

    I don't get it. I know how this may make me appear, but I really don't get why a bunch of companies have suddenly delayed announcements etc because of this (horrible) situation in America.

    Is what it is and I am not remotely interested in the PS5 announcements, I just find it a bit odd. Guess it feels very different if you are in the USA.

    Re: Sony indefinitely delays tomorrow's PS5 gameplay reveal

    Well asking for that( every-day racism, bias and hatred ) to go away will probably be a tall order, and when even the so called religion of peace ( Islam ) preach racism, or how you want to see on the way the Quran tell how to treat non believers / other marginal persons, then tolerance and understanding will probably be hard to earn.

    AMD / Intel
    Ford / Chevy
    Young / Old
    This religion / that religion
    This skin tone / that skin tone

    It is at best just a mess, one i must take a skeptical stance towards.

    And i sure as hell are not going to take part in a protest with looters or violent people, but sadly that have also become the norm in Denmark over the past 2-3 decades.

    I was looking forward to see this, though i am not a console person.

    Not that, in different ways, the events behind this aren't disgraceful, especially George Floyd's murder. But yeah, it stinks of virtue signalling.

    Re: Sony indefinitely delays tomorrow's PS5 gameplay reveal

    I think Sony knows the US market is distracted by what is happening now. It is delaying the reveal to when there is less competition in the news cycles.

    Almost makes sense for Sony I guess, console launches do tend to feature fairly high in the news. Less so for the other companies delaying things that would never normally be in the news.

    To be fair Sony are damned if they do, damned if they don't. I'd rather they appeared to give a damn than not even if it is just corporate speaking.

    Personally, I think attention should be given to what is going on. It's only a game console and I say that as a gamer.

    Re: Sony indefinitely delays tomorrow's PS5 gameplay reveal

    Nothing worse than corporate ethical guidelines, really i have yet to see any company with any of those i can take serious, in most cases its just a PDF on their home page to make people think they give a damn, or at least make sure they spend as little of their "hard" earned cash on stuff like that.
    Really i dont give a damn if your company buy carbon credits to offset your carbon footprint, or build your data center in a place with lots of wind turbines, that will never do anything good, more likely the other way around.

    All the 3 main religions have taught nothing but Peace, love and respect. It is the twisted individuals and groups that have used religious text and taken things out of context to spread hate and their own agenda of hate & division or ignorant people who blatantly insult without being fully educated! I’m sure the 1.8 Billion Muslims would totally disagree with you.
    We should accept Sony’s act for what it is! its not the time & place for PS5 and there is a Bigger story to be told! Kudos to Sony for doing this.

    Sony should do what they do best:
    1. produce game consoles
    2. publish games
    3. lose our credit card information
    And they should shut up about politics and social justice.

    They are literally shutting up about everything for 24 hours.


    As for those mentioning virtue signaling, you may well be correct. But if a corporation does the right thing for the wrong reason does that make it the wrong thing to do?

    Situation in America? Feel differently if you’re in the USA? What about the situation or how you would feel if you were, I don’t know, black?

    Your statement doesn’t make you seem like anything, it objectively demonstrates white privilege.

    Ah yes, the “keep it simple and stick to what you’re good at” approach. Perhaps consider taking a leaf out of your own book since you aren’t a corporate advisor, nor does anyone least of all Sony give two craps about your advice.

    So to recap, shut up and display a modicum of patience while awaiting your first world consumerist delicacies.
