You're better off releasing info when your product is almost complete. i.e. damn near in alpha at least, instead of showing cut scenes years in advance.
2) Folks need to stop complaining about pushbacks and lack of games. You're a liar if you say you don't have a backlog to play. I haven't shed a single tear about the lack of exclusives and new ip's to drop so far this generation. The vast majority of us own 2,3, or 4 systems and have tons of games we never got around to. Take a chill pill, kick back, play some games you didn't get to. Or some classics. Or some indies. Whatever. Just stop acting like the release of new console exclusives are all that matters, when really those are the icing on an already pretty good cake.
3) There's almost guaranteed to be some really quality games releasing this year that have not been announced. This kind of loops into the first point. I'd bet anything that some developers have already wised up and figured they can wait to drop info closer to an actual release date, rather than string folks along for literal years.
