However, something can only be unknown for so long before that lack of information becomes a hindrance. I don't ever expect Kojima to reveal everything about the game before its release, but I've reached the point where vague trailers of Norman Reedus running around wastelands isn't enough anymore. As of now, my hype has peaked with that game. Last night's trailer didn't show me anything more to be excited about.
That was basically all of Sony's conference, to be honest. I already knew I liked the look of Spider-Man so I didn't really care about seeing more gameplay. I don't care at all about the samurai game, don't play Resident Evil, don't care about Last of Us, it was a technically well done but very uninteresting conference.
So, unless Nintendo pulls out the big guns in the next twenty minutes, Xbox's conference has the title for this year.
