Summer Game Fest: Geoff Keighley plans fewer third-party conferences

Geoff Keighley lived up to his reputation. In a lively Twitter Spaces today, he got himself noticed again by hyping up his event, the Summer Game Fest. The end of E3 left the field free for this event as well as the more minor speeches of the live studios. While the drill was new to many at the start of the pandemic, last year left a bitter taste with many players. Indeed, the pace proposed by some may have been disappointing. According to the man, the situation should change in the future:

There were a lot of shows last year where everyone was disappointed because they weren’t really press conferences, were they? Like Take-Two, Capcom, Square Enix and things like that… I think[ils] learned that if you are doing a press conference you need to have more than 30 minutes of content and sometimes they only have one or two great games to show which may not be enough to make an event complete around. So I think there will be a bit of a change. I have a pretty good idea of ​​what’s to come next month, and I think people are going to be excited about games in general.

The subject is easy for those who have the only current replacement for the E3 format. However, we have to admit that he is not totally wrong. We are always entitled to more minor events that do not have the same flavor. Perhaps this is the sign of a rapprochement of these speeches to offer better choice pieces to players? What do you think ?
