  • No way to participate on PS5?

  • Wait… I have a PS5 copy of Guilty Gear so I can’t participate? That seems like it needs to be fixed.

  • Debating selling my PS5 they are in demand and I’m playing Ratchet and Clank right now you haven’t made any effort with the thing really no announcements for new games the news we get is X,Y and Z may go to PC this is our plans for PC here’s games for PS4 seriously why the hell do I have this thing you are doing a bad job keeping your PLAYSTATION FANS happy what you forget about us because you are too busy jumping all over PC.I really am starting to dislike you been a customer since 1999 but I’m so sick of this behaviour you don’t even read these comments or send out surveys anymore it’s shocking poor effort you should be ashamed how low you sunk the last few years you became just another Xbox.

    • Relax, they will have a PSX event in July where they announce all the big (and smaller) games coming to PS5 in the second half of 2021 and the first half of 2022.
      Making the announcement right around E3 doesn’t give them the spotlight and media attention as it’s divided amongst all the different press conferences. Doing so in July when gaming news is slow puts them in the spotlight and attracts big attention and genuine hype. Given your profile pic, you’d love to see the new Naughty Dog Factions 2 multiplayer game announced and the reveal trailer for the next God of War, the release date of Horizon: Forbidden West, amongst many others.
      As for PS5 support, they’re working on beta for a big firmware that will add a lot of requested features (maybe even support for the SSD expansion slot), and so many games and other things are making the transition over to PS5 (Tournaments will become PS5 too, Sony didn’t buy EVO Championship to keep eSports stuck on PS4 after all).
      It’s not doom and gloom, you just have to wait and see it all happen and unfold before your eyes.

    • Is this some kind of troll post???

    • He is right we went out and got their console what are we getting out of it I too will be investing in Switch at least Nintendo don’t put their games second and it’s even more of an insult they expect us to pay £70 for games but not PC?Yeah no you are good Sony better sort your messaging out and fast I have over 6K trophies and buy all my games brand new in launch window you want to keep me better show my why I should stay and FAST.

  • Good to see SoulCalibur VI and Guilty Gear Strive are going to be there!

  • Ok sell you’re PS5’s then problem solved

  • So when will Street Fighter 6 be announced at evo

    • That’s Capcom job, not Sony.

    • Well for SFV Sony did help capcom with making the game with money

    • @ultragamerblog

      That was SF V and back when Capcom had difficulties with their financial. But right now, i don’t see Capcom needs Sony’s money to developed SF VI considering they have good financials where they game sold well (MHW, RE, DMC, etc).

  • I would love to watch you destroy your PS5. Please!!

  • I wanna sign for GG Strive but the link keeps showing forbidden / error 😞

  • I wouldn’t play Tekken 7 if you paid me lol. Haven’t touched it since a day after launch. There was do little to do in it. They didn’t even give me a decent Arcade/Story mode for all the other charscters where you go through 10 stages and then get the characters ending.

    Truly awful, worst Tekken game ever and I never touched Soul Calibur VI then because I already knew about the multi season pass scam at that stage anyway.

    Thanks for ruining Tekken Harada. Please keep milking the last fans you have left of 40 quid everytime you release another season.

  • Tekken looks AA to me doesn’t look AAA at all I have a higher standard for games AAA is king

  • This may be a stupid question, but for Guilty Gear tournaments do you HAVE to play on a PS4 or can you play the PS5 version, or on a PS5 using the PS4 version in backwards compatibility?
