Also, people were apparently less mad at Sony this time since last time their dislike ratio on the presentation on YouTube was double than likes for no reason that mattered and this time, that ratio has been only half of its overall like count.

What we gathered from second State of Play stream is that many are relatively happy upon receiving update on MediEvil and Final Fantasy VII Remake. Plus, many who were waiting for latest news on MHW expansion Iceborne got some more info as well.
