Daily Reaction: How Did Sony’s gamescom Stack Up?

Today’s big topic is, obviously, Sony’s gamescom conference, which saw a whole host of new reveals and even a few surprises. But were Sony’s reveals big enough to push the Vita to success? Were we given something to forward to on our PS3s? See what we think, right here on Daily Reaction. - PSLS (Gamescom 2012, PS Vita, PS3, Sony)

Nothing too exciting on the PS3 front, but I'm glad to see more Vita support.

So happy to see the Vita on stage at all.

I love my Vita and really hope that it can pick up some steam.

(It's still early...still early...still early, knifefight, no need to panic....)

Sony basically showed why they are the best video game company. They brought games and showed them while others don't even know when a new console that is launching this year is going to be release or what the price will be. Sony showed that they have software to cater to all and not just some. They sorted hardcore, casuals, and the soso.

Absolutely, they're leaving this gen with a bang.

I think we all know who your referencing troll.
But really Sony did a good job with the Vita and some nice PS3 announcements.

did you see puppeteer?
doctorstrange  +   1274d ago
I was definitely pleasantly surprised, and Sony even managed to keep a game secret!

I loved the all stars reveals, Puppeteer, Rain and the MOVE horror game, for me it was super awesome and all of the vita related, promotions and features, much better than E3

Vaya Vividi!! que bien mascas el ingles!!! LOL! Anyway I was surprised with KILLZONE MERCENARY... Im a big KZ fan. As a MOVE suporter since launch I have to say that this is a game that could make some people think more seriously about the MOVE. Sorcery was a great game too and this looks really good. For the rest Im still watching but I have to say that CALL OF DUTY VITA really sucks hard!! Te veo online!!
vividi  +   1274d ago
mega LOL, who are you?

Sony now has an even stronger line up with PSN titles and FINALLY some Move titles along with Vita and core games. Sony's in a strong position right now, and has even outshined there E3 conference in my opinion, people seemed to be allot more satisfied now.

Almost 45 minutes of PSVITA, that was awesome!!
chrisarsenalsavart  +   1274d ago
great conference and i must say tbey even impressed me with wonderbook.
I think i have my daughter s christmas present sorted.
I like the fact that they listened to us and started the conference with the vita.
Cross buy is an amazing idea, i just wished EA was on board with that idea so i won,t have to buy fifa and NFS twice.
Jim ryan was a good host, although he kind of reminded me ricky bobby in tallegeda nights(that part in the movie when he,s interviewed for the first time and he doesn,t know what to do with his hands).
doctorstrange  +   1274d ago
I was hoping for a price on Wonderbook as it looks like something I might give a punt.
fei-hung  +   1274d ago
Buy one version get the other free was the one I never thought I would see and they did it! If more games launch like this it will be awesome.

Also loved the LBP2 DLC tech and how it can do what the WiiU Pad does. It was awesome too see the demo run so well. Can't wait to see what other debs can do this with this tech.

PSMobile also was good news. Buy the game on one device and you can play it on all devices. They have finally managed to unite all systems under one ecosystem. Looks like Kaz is doing the right thing in theory and in practice! Here is to hoping the minis will be shared across all devices!

E3 = PS3 Games
Gamescon = PSVITA Games
TGS = NEXT GEN PLAYSTATION

Sony's are in the right track. I think they did excellent IMO.

@doctorstrange
Announcement is a lot different from the release. I think Sony will do this not for Gamers but for Investors. Business works that way. You need to have the right bait to catch big fish.

No way they'll announce a PS4 right before Christmas and kill PS3 sales.
KevPC  +   1274d ago
I thought Sony did great, a lot of new IPs i loved their conference
auen1  +   1274d ago
i like the cross play idea. the games from the japan studios look awesome. i'm disappointed we didn't see any price drops, but there's still a chance they'll do them during the holiday season.
smashcrashbash  +   1274d ago
Loved it. Better then E3 by a mile. I am all fired up
Arnon  +   1274d ago
Honestly I don't expect much from either of the 3 companies at this point, due to how long they've been in this generation. However, it's really nice to see Sony focusing on the Vita a bit.
guitar_nerd_23  +   1274d ago
Ps+ is becoming pretty awesome, even if I'm feeling poor one month a get a new AAA game to play.
psp2roundup  +   1274d ago
A few home truths. First Sony needs to ditch Jim Ryan as a frontman. Too many big points were slipped in (firmware, Cross-Buy etc.) and almost passed they audience by. Steve Jobs would hammer home a small feature repeatedly if he thought it would make a big difference. Even Steve Ballmer would play like a terrier with a rag toy if he thought something was worth it. Jim just read his autocue and moved on like a zombie news reader, no obvious sense of passion or verve..... http://psp2roundup.blogspot...

I would give them an A. I was impressed with what was shown.
