During Sony Computer Entertainment’s PlayStation Experience Keynote, Magic Labs Director Richard Marks had a stage demo to showcase how two people could interact with PlayStation VR.
Unfortunately, the demo malfunctioned on stage, which is something rather common with motion controls, and of course certain areas of the press jumped on it as soon as humanly possible.
Boss Key Productions Founder Cliff Bleszinski took issue at that, encouraging the press to cut Sony some slack and mentioning that PlayStation VR is “Solid.”
Cut Sony some slack, stage demos are dumb and break all the time, Sony’s VR is solid, people. https://t.co/DwoMSSRiSn

Bleszinski also brought himself as an example, citing all the times in which a stage demo failed for him.
If I had a nickel for every stage demo that fucked up for me I could retire. Again. wubba lub dub dub — Cliff Bleszinski (@therealcliffyb) December 6, 2015
Personally, many of the negative reaction “articles” I read after basically every press conference, by every publisher, at every event, honestly makes me wonder if those writers actually like games. But I guess that’s a larger discussion for another time.
