  • Why did they bet on when it starts again? It's 8 pm FYI.



  • @Haru17 it may not start exactly at 8pm



  • @TokyoSlim Yeah, but that's like betting on whether Spider-Man will get a new trailer if Spider-Man's already been announced for the presentation. And that's wasn't even the question asked; Kyle and Huber made a point to neither tell the bet-testants the announced time or make it clear that the bet was about delays.

    Ghosts of Tsushima will get a release date in 2018 between May and Sept. A demo or beta will be shadow dropped.

    *Just to clarify, Between the beginning of May and the end of Sept.



  • @Haru17 I don't understand your point? It's betting on exactly what time the show will actually start. It's not the hosts fault that neither competitor knew what time the show has been announced to start. They should have known. They are covering it!



  • @Haru17 I also don't understand your point.
    I'm not ready for my bets



  • @TokyoSlim My point is that, if it was really a bet about delays, they should have at least explained as much to Ian and Jones. Or, I don't know, the audience.

    And frankly you have to dig to a random paragraph in a recent blog post to know it's 8 in the first place. Sony's kinda burying the keynote, or whatever it will be.

    You know I should probably dial back my final bet since the whole event is apparently gonna be dialed back, but if I did that then it wouldn't really be a final bet would it?

    They announced it exactly the same way they've always announced it.
