Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice is a game designed with Ninja Theory’s personal flair: Brutal melee combat that focuses on properly using Senua’s lithe frame and speed, a story revolving around mental illnesses in response to traumatic events, and a unique art style that was brought to life through innovative technology. Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice has been touted as a unique “Independent AAA” game, built with the intentions of an indie title while using the production values of a typical AAA game.

It wasn’t quite as bad as when Square Enix trolled all who attended the PlayStation Experience in 2014 with a PS4 port of FFVII, but I’d argue that it was worse than the Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze fiasco: Donkey Kong was a far more popular game than Metroid (the game fans were hoping Retro was working on), but Pokken Tournament DX is a new spin-off that has nothing on the mainline Pokemon games. It certainly didn’t help that the Direct opened by amplifying fan expectations, saying they would announce the first Pokemon game for Nintendo Switch.

Sony executives Shawn Layden and Jim Ryan sat down with TIME to tout the PS4’s nearly 60 Million units sold, and to talk about the future of the platform. That is all they had to do.
