A PS fans wetdream of an E3 list is "leaked" and we're arguing about GoW vs GoW? Cmon chaps, get a grip
It says to offset partially the MS presser - It's two long term and well known franchises, if Sony are introducing a lot of new stuff it counts to introduce something tried, tested and big. I would take it as to do that for them if MS are going to bring the old school powerhouses as well.
I pretty much expected most of these games to get announced, and trying to see the reasoning of big games companies often hillarious decisions is amusing sometimes.
I still don't see point of explicitly marking it as "to offset Gears". Both are established IPs with core fanbase. Nothing Sony does in God of War will make a Gears fan drop Gears4 and pick God of war. The rest of the audience won't care for the game announcement at E3.
It's pretty much explained in Jimquisitions video. "The Unholy Trinity of Greedy Bastards". You can probably guess what the censored word is and search for it.
In summary many executives are from "Packaged Goods" backgrounds and dont understand Video Games, and they rely on marketing departments who came from Packaged Goods too.
Edit: Bastards isn't on the censor? Weird.I guess it's ok then. I'll link it (NSFW, Jim swears a bit) http://www.escapistm...Greedy-Bastards
