New trademark fillings from Sony Computer Entertainment have surfaced.
So it begins... i'm pretty sure leaks will come out before the event so fans who want to be surprised while watching the event live i'd suggest dont visit gaming sites this weekend lol, its gonna get wild. Motorstorm sony, Motorstorm is all im asking but if you end up the event showing The Last Guardian running on ps4 hardware as part of the Launch line up i will forgive you if Motorstorm doesnt make it lol.
the ps2 is back in a new body.. ps4 ftw!
That's not a premature statement at all...
a man can dream. I hope they go more boxy design a la PS2 rather than the PS3 design. Makes for better stacking and putting on the side looks cooler. Also I can put controllers on it easier.
Yeah, a flat top console would be great! I hate how my controllers just slide off my PS3. And when you have an NES, SNES, N64, Wii, Master System, Dreamcast, PS2, and a PS3, space and stackability is of the essence!
Why would you stack new consoles? I understand old consoles, but new consoles generate so much heat, it seems stupid to stack them...
New Studio maybe?
Interesting. I never even thought of that.
when sony showed Vita for the 1st time they actually showed a lot of content so i am guessing we can expect more of the same on February 20th only this time the stakes are much higher last guardian day one launch title for ps4 Killzone 4 GT6 New game from evolution studios and much more also while we all look forward to a lot of 1st/2nd party announcements, let's not forget UBI and EA will be there to show a lot of stuff. UBI just because they love showing their games and EA because they like sony a lot. lol my weird reasons
We understand the potential lineup. Thank you.
If they show GT6, then I may explode in happiness.
If last guardian is a launch title, I guess I am an early adopter YET AGAIN. :(
“I think I'm afraid of being happy because whenever I get too happy something bad always happens.”
Hell yeah motorstorm.It gives me next gen feels.
I think "The World of Three Kingdoms" will be a cooperation game from SEGA and TECMO KOEI. I hope this game comes to the PS4!
*WELCOME TO THE NEXT LEVEL* ;)
"Game for the first time" and "HugMe" Casual gaming incoming....
And wild assumptions and speculation following after
I hope Cocozero is joking. It's obviously a suggestion that it's such a leap that it's like "gaming for the first time" This is not the first slogan to use that formula. "Our product is so good that it's like using that type of product for the first time" is used a lot.
Sony has never for a second let go of the core, Nintendo did, Microsoft did more then any, so much so that they have spend millions on marketing brainwashing their core to adopt casual gimmicks... Don't even get me started on that topic, its disgusting, but the young one's are waking up, thats a good thing.
"Never for a second" that's jolly, I guess the original 60GB ps3 and the vita are "core" gamer items. And not media driven.
The Vita is DEFINITELY a core gamer item. Do you not own a Vita or something?!?
I dont own a vita yet but i wish i did, i mean im missing out on so many games man and yes the vita the is more for core gamers not casual.
That's "HugQMe." Sounds like a title which will never ever leave Japan in that form. The only thing that seems to make sense is a slogan - Game for the first time. Sounds like either they're going for a reimaging of what gaming is or they're aiming for new customers.
Didnt sony patent a creepy bear that has feelings? Maybe the HugQMe is part of it.
I don't understand all the disagrees how can anyone not think hug me will be anything but a casual game/app. I'm betting it will some along the lines of a new eyepet for sonys new camera
or it could be more like, we are making things so cool and new it would be like you are gaming for the first time.
They need to bring back "Do not underestimate the power of the Playstation".
I respectfully disagree. To say that carries an implication that there is even the slightest perception/question to the "power" of ones product, which is poor from a PR/marketing perspective.
I think that is IGN's Podcast Beyond slogan.
I always did like "Live in your world, Play in ours."
I haven't signed on PS home in years but signed on last night and it made me load all my digital belongings online to its servers. I have a feeling PSH will be used on other Sony devices as well. I think gaiki is already being used for it.
A nice, simple comment. I'm giving you bubbles.
I believe they translated Kosoda Thein Department completely wrong, the Japanese is コソダテインメント or Kosoda-teinment. Kosodate (子育て) means to raise children. It sounds like a pun on that mixed with entertainment. As bizarre as it sounds, it's probably a casual game based around raising kids. (takes off Sherlock cap)
This is correct. Whoever wrote this article really shouldn't comment on things he translated with Google lol All three trademarks sound related to children's or casual games. Hajimete no game implies it's someone's first game, it's not a potential slogan.
@inbetweener, Yup, exactly. I didn't catch that 子育て at first (and I'm a JLPT1 guy!), props to your 日本語 :) I always look at these infamous "articles" and how the "author" (yes, the investigative and critical journalist - pun intended!) translates Japanese so, well, freely! Now, without trying to show off, 初めてのゲーム could also be translated to "The first game", but from the looks of it, these all seem to be related to similar types of games, thus "One's first game" could be the more correct one. Seems like this has something to do with Sony's casual line-up. Maybe Sony is going all-around this time, while still heavily investing in their core market - the gamers..?
"My people... Sons and Daughters of Sony. This much I vow: The history of these days will be written in blood. By crushing the armies of nintendo and microsoft, by seizing the mulitplats they thought to turn against us, we were fighting for our very existence. But if there are those who would deny us peace; refuse us our rightful place as king of platforms, then we will unleash such terrible vengeance that console generations yet unborn will cry out in anguish![...]The enemy may shatter our bodies, but they cannot break our spirit. Even now they advance on our marketshare, to seize by force what they cannot claim by right. They cannot imagine what awaits them. WE WILL SMITE THE INVADERS FROM OUR SKIES! Though they sweep over our systems like the sands of winter, never again will we bow before them; never again endure their oppression; never again endure their tyranny. We will strike without warning and without mercy, fighting as one hand, one heart, one soul. We will shatter their dreams and haunt their nightmares, drenching our ancestors' ps2s with their blood. And as our last breath tears at their lungs; as we rise again from the ruins of the console war... they will know: gaming belongs to the Playstation."
The Helghast kinda lost... just saying.
All I have in my head is a nuke wiping ISA off the face of the planet. So, not really.
@nainainai that's jolly, I guess the original 60GB ps3 and the vita are "core" gamer items. And not media driven. What heck are you talking bout? Did you forget ps3 had bluray compared to 360 having a hddvd that lost the war? The stuff people say on this site sometimes doesn't make sense at all like they live in a cave then go to the library to comment on ps3 forums.
When they say "Game for the first time", I'm pretty sure that's a sign that Sony is aiming for more playstyles, and more types of games. They won't ditch the core, they're just probably trying to include more games that aren't story based I assume.
