What we can expect
Sony appears to understand some fans were disappointed with a gaming showcase Microsoft . That event, which was billed as a first opportunity to see gameplay for titles coming to the , was criticized as mostly being a collection of trailers rather than a look at what it’ll be like to play new games. Microsoft has another event planned for July, when it plans to show off new games from its own development studios — including 343 Industries, makers of the hit and its newest title, Halo Infinite.
