Double post I know but I have to say I was hyped then let down in very short time when I saw Ironman... Thought we'd get IronMan like recent Spiderman and instead it's VR focused that doesn't seem exciting enough.
I enjoyed the show... it wasn't spectacular, but it was a fun and breezy whizz through quite a few upcoming games.
No Man's Sky VR looks terrific; boy, I can't wait to try this out! It was cool too see that a large number of PSVR titles are on the way - it feels like the format is finally getting quite a bit of focus. Not sure about Iron Man VR, though. It seems like a great idea but the screenshots looked pretty basic and struck me as being a mini-experience.
I've not really watched much about Days Gone but I liked the new footage that was shown. It focused on characters and story which I felt the game needed, based on the little I have watched before.
Yeah, overall a fun twenty minutes. For me personally, No Man's Sky VR really fires my excitement!

I did like the new Days Gone and Concrete Genie footage, but I really was hoping for a surprise or two.
Was expecting nothing, came away pleasantly surprised.
Great to see the relative success of PSVR being rewarded with plenty of juicy titles (Can't wait for Blood and Truth, NMS Beyond and some of the other stuff they showed), though I can understand those who've not jumped into that being a bit bored by it.
I quite liked the format of breezing through a list of games but whilst Inside Xbox can be a bit cringey and Nintendo Direct is quirky (that could be a cutsie platform, Cringey and Quirky) they have people in them which can make them memorable. Maybe Sony can expand it with people or interviews, but after watching one of the most boring Apple conferences ever I did like the brevity.

Same. No big announcements so I do get why people found it underwhelming but I wasn't expecting the announcement of PS5 or any new triple-As. I'm very happy to see No Man's Sky is getting a VR update - I hope it doesn't cause me motion sickness... Also, I like that there were about 3/4 PSVR games, and I will get that London Heist one, so it shows that more is coming this year.

Inside Xbox right now is a studio based affair with presenters and stuff, it's pretty cringey tbh but they do actually have big announcements within each one.
Outside Xbox is an independent You tube channel that mostly has vids for Xbox games, but not exclusively. A year ago they launched a sister channel called Outside Xtra which features PS4 and Switch games generally. They have no affiliation to Microsoft afaik.
