What Announcements Should Sony Make Now?

Kotaku - After giving Microsoft a purple nurple for the ages just about 24 hours ago—attacking the idea that game consoles should have online check-in requirements and used game restrictions—what the hell could Sony do for an encore? We have a few ideas. (PS Vita, PS3, PS4, Sony)

PS4:Release date.
bicfitness  +   466d ago
Yes. I'm hoping late September, early October. Gives them more time to build a crushing wave of momentum against that which shall not be named.
NewMonday  +   465d ago
you mean Sauron?

at least the console equivalent, even has the all watching eye and always listens for it's name.

Hoping they drop before xbone, just to rub salt into the wound,
house  +   465d ago
hell at this point its beating a dead horse

on topic: i do selfishly release at the same time as x1 just so i can have a bunch of cash saved up by the time the one comes out.

Release date would be nice. They said "Holiday 2013" and then later clarified "when we say Holiday we do not mean just before Christmas. The USA has a big holiday before that" (probably means Thanksgiving)

I'm thinking Sony will come out around the same time, either a few weeks before or a few weeks after. It honestly doesn't matter. Every Xbox One that sells is an opportunity for an Average Joe to get pissed off at the thing, return it, and then spread the news to his buddies that Xbox One stinks.

Sony needs to talk more about the Vita. It was neglected at E3 this year, sadly.

Good. The PS4 needs to come out by November.
LightofDarkness  +   465d ago
If I were a betting man, I'd say November 5th US release date, with launch in major EU territories between 15th-29th November (UK/Eire earliest EU launches). Japanese launch may come January or February 2014, depending on stock levels across US/EU.

@dedicatedtogamers

Sony neglected the PS Vita at E3 last year too but made a strong comeback at Gamescom. I hope the same will happen this year.

Looking at releases, I don't think they launch in September due to GTAV and early October would mess with Beyond.

The best day looks like it would be October 29th. It would release alongside Battlefield 4 and Assassins Creed 4. Be the first to play next gen versions of those games, seems like a good move.

@dedicatedtogamers: Retailers consider the holiday season to start October 1st.

Brilliant idea!
Do you know if you can communicate that to Sony?
bicfitness  +   466d ago
They'll drop some exclusive bombs at Gamescom and TGS for sure. They only showed 5 out of 20 (or was it 30, think it was 30) 1st party exclusives in development. And 12 are new IPs if I recall.
OlgerO  +   465d ago
Yes man I know and did you know that the Order 1886 is not even a first party studio :)
PS4 momentum is only going to get bigger.

remanutd55  +   465d ago
The Order 1886 is being developed by ReadyAtDawn( second party studio i think) with the help of sony Santa Monica ( first party studio) i hope you know sony santa monica helps other studios with their games.
minimur12  +   465d ago
the unnnanounced ps4 games i most want to hear about are:
Naughty Dog's game
Quatintic Dream 's game

Done.
Cam977  +   465d ago
Quantic Dream are doing the Dark Sorcerer or whatever it was called.
I think. Maybe I've mixed that up.
minimur12  +   465d ago
@cam977

Nop, david cage confirmed yesterday it was just a tech demo, like KARA and The Casting.
The Dark Sourcerer is a tech demo.
HammadTheBeast  +   465d ago
20 new first party games, and 40 third party games that are exclusive, or have additional content on PS4.
NobleRed  +   465d ago
I guess they will announce the date during the gamescom.
AznGaara  +   465d ago
and Last Guardian at TGS :) lol
Brugal  +   465d ago
Uncharted 4
MikeyDucati1  +   465d ago
A commercial. The screen is black with a drone sound in crescendo. At it's height, stop it and cut to a scene of Nelson saying "Ah Ha!" pointing at the One. Then end it with grand horns and the sound of beating drums with, 'Sony Does Everything'. That would be hilarious.
Honest_gamer  +   465d ago
i woudlnt mind u know a release date or at least a month like Microsoft however i expect this was a tactical move on Sony's behalf there cheaper than the xbox if they announced the release date Microsoft could push theirs forward MAYBE, but if they leave it for another months or two the chances of them being able to push the release date forward is reduced this Sony delivers another knock out punch being cheaper and releasing before hand.
Leio  +   465d ago
I want to know what the rest of the first party studios are up to
sashimi  +   465d ago
Need next-gen JRPG! Yoshida i believe! Use your almighty powers as CEO of Sony worldwide studios and make it happen.
xxPillsxx  +   465d ago
Some love for Vita? :(
Please Sony, let the Vita have at last 20 minutes or more show at Gamescom. You passed it out of E3, so at last show some love for it at Gamescom. It's a system made by you too, how could you abandon it?
reko  +   465d ago
games, exclusive games, and release date.

A big new VITA game before E3 ends?

At least a damned teaser!
JLT-Sandwitch  +   465d ago
I would like to know more about the hard drive. For me personally, I don't see 500gig as big enough, what kind of hard drive can I replace it with
sway_z  +   465d ago
It will be just like PS3 HDD options...Sata 2.5 :)
JLT-Sandwitch  +   463d ago
Awesome nice and easy to find a good size. Bubble up :)
Man-E-Faces  +   465d ago
Develop/announce some exclusive RPG's, JRPG's and go into legit detail about the Share button like how long does it record gameplay, I here 1 person say 15 min. and another says several min., what is it? How much time is a video that I upload? Is the record feature gimped? Can we upload to youtube? Can we store the videos on our hard drive? Do we need PS+ to access Share features? Editing tools? And more PSN account details like the ability to change your PSN ID.
Smoey  +   465d ago
1: Release Date
2: PS4/Vita Bundle
3: Vita MMO!
4: Vita F2P Games

I think Sony have done enough!

...enough until Gamescom, TGS that is!
remanutd55  +   465d ago
Gamescon needs to be about psvita and 2 more ps4 exclusive games, TGS needs to be all about The Last Guardian, Final Fantasy and more psvita.
Tatsuya  +   465d ago
Get more exclusives! hey, we can dream right
Announce more games and the release date! Then I'll continue to to let them access my wallet all year long.
Sanquine90  +   465d ago
Ps4 + Vita bundle $550 ! Drop the bomb !
Drakesfortune  +   465d ago
The getaway...need this game haha
valet_Smerdyakov  +   465d ago
1. A September/October release date would be another blow for the xbone. Lots of undecided impatient gamers would rush to buy PS4.
2. the Last Guardian
3. buy Atlus and announce an exclusive Persona 5
4. a new IP from Naughty dog, an RPG ideally. I love Uncharted but the franchise needs a break. Or give Uncharted a new direction - an open world game set in the age of exploration.
5. Warhawk 2
6. Eye of Judgement 2 :)
7. An attractive Vita+PS4 bundle.
Rask  +   465d ago
New IPs from Naughty Dog, Santa Monica, Media Molecule and Quantic Dream (and the new IP from Guerrilla, of course) and i'm fully satisfied.

Edit: Almost forgot The Last Guardian, The Agent and Demon's Souls 2.

sherimae2413  +   465d ago
just give some love for the vita too, sony
thats all......
DiRtY  +   465d ago
How about games. they hardly have any exclusive titles.
CKsquid  +   465d ago
Not yet.
But they have 20 first party exclusives
And 40 third party exclusives or with exclusive content.
Be patient and wait for the announcements to keep flooding in.
DVAcme  +   465d ago
The release date, as long as it's before the New Year, is really not much of an issue for me, since I'm already sold on the system. That said, I seriously doubt that the system won't be released any later than November. Releasing it before Black Friday would be a huge win for Sony.

Something that WOULD be cool, IMHO, is seeing Sony bring back a few of their classic franchises that haven't been seen in a while. Seeing new iterations of IPs like Syphon Filter, Medievil, SOCOM, Jet Moto, Parappa The Rapper and MAG would be icing on the cake for fans, and further proof that Sony is all about them. MAG would be AWESOME as an F2P title.

Edit: Sony, if you're reading this, don't gimme credit, just make the games and we'll be happy campers.

I am guessing october 29th, only because some of the confirmed "at launch" games include battlefield 4 which will release on october 29th for ps3, xbox 360, pc. Not sure if they meant at launch of the game, or it will release for ps4 and xbone respectively when those systems release.
o-Sunny-o  +   465d ago
Persona 5 Vita! ^~^
Roper316  +   465d ago
I'm waiting to hear about ND's new game and also what Quantic are working on for the PS4. Then they confirmed TLG is in full development so I am expecting to hear about that at either Gamescon or TGS.
