Presentations, especially those of the Powerpoint variety, can be over-contrived, bloated, winding indulgences of the creator's confused imagination. Most presentations lack a point. Which is usually made-up by filling them with bullet points. But they don't count.
So when I get to see a perfectly impactful one number presentation, I do a little flip of joy.
In the midst of Microsoft royally pissing off the gaming community by not only doing away with the DVD as a means of carrying games (progress eh?), Sony have been poking fun and winning a zillion Brownie points by simply keeping the disc drive.
In effect Sony are winning the next-gen console war by keeping a piece of tech that has pretty much always existed.
That one slide is all that is needed.
Just to rub it in, they even made an instructional how to video about this anachronistic (but winning) "new" feature of the PS4. Genius.
But, back to the one number presentation. Sony have a track record for slapping down their console competitors. Back in 1995, following on from a long, rambling, flashy but pointless presentation by Sega to launch their doomed Saturn Console, a Playstation exec walked on stage and gave a one number presentation that won the war.
As u/awwnuts07 on Reddit explains:
"This actually reminds me when the Sega Saturn was announced at $399. Right after Sega's presentation, a Sony exec walked on stage, said "$299" and walked off. Pretty much killed the Saturn in one fell swoop."
Here's the one-number presentation itself.
Remember that when you are just putting the final animation effect touches to slide 134 in your next deck.
