We now have early word from a reliable source of leaks which is alleging the date of Sony’s next PlayStation Experience 2020 Event at which the Sony PS5 should get its look, price, and main features revealed to the world for the first time.
Sony has allowed information to trickle out through the press about the PlayStation 5 but has yet to silence the demand of hype, rumors, alleged leaks, patent speculation, dev kit embargo breaches, and more; leading to a rather confusing launch lead up thus far. But all of those questions should be answered soon as the PlayStation 5 marketing machine ramps up for its first big PS5 push.
On February 11, 2020 when Call of Duty Modern Warfare’s Season TWO launched, a placeholder for a brand new game mode was added to the main menu. Many have prophesized the coming of Battle Royale to the 2019 remake of Modern Warfare, and it appears this moment has arrived. Currently showing up as “Classified” with a blurred out static imagery, this mode has now been allegedly leaked as Call of Duty Warzone along with footage of the gameplay from its training grounds / tutorial known as Warzone Orientation and takes place in the Armistice Training Facility.
Marketing campaigns dictate a lot in the video game industry. With the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X (AKA XSX, or just “Xbox”) releasing later this year, we are finally reaching the point of full reveals. What the PS5 will look like exactly, how much it will cost, and the promises of its major features / operating system will all be deciding factors in the purchasing decision this holiday season.
While many analysts are taking the safe bet that the PS5 will perform better next-generation based on PS4’s smash-through sales performance, this industry is often unpredictable and can change with one bad presentation. That’s why this is so important, and is Sony taking their final look left and right before they cross that road. This generation, Sony and their PS4 have been heroes, legends, and they’re about to walk away from all of that to give birth to the PS5.
The Wonderful 101 is one of the forgotten games from the Wii U era which many feel justifies a ‘cult classic’ status and could be enjoyed by more people if it had been released for one of the industry’s more popular game consoles. Being that this title is a true Wii U exclusive and never saw release on other platforms, it has only been able to achieve a modest 360,000 sales worldwide since its 2013 release.
But this isn’t all PlatinumGames have up their sleeves for Early 2020 reveals. They’ve launched an entire marketing campaign to showcase four projects currently in development, the first of which was this remaster. The successful funding of the game on Kickstarter reached ¥100 million yen in less than 24 hours, and currently sitting on $1.2 million USD at the time of this writing, proving that fans who requested a remaster are genuine buyers.
