Sony again will wait for TGS and VGA for the big announcements probably and till then i just want the thing so bad

minimur121131d ago

I would wet myself if they announced ND's game as a launch title at TGS, I know it's unlikely but hey - i can dream!

iamnsuperman1131d ago (Edited 1131d ago )

It is most likely going to be seen at the VGAs with more of a gameplay showing at E3. TGS is more of Japanese developer orientated conference.

minimur121131d ago

@iamnsuperman

would've thought so - Whatsort of news would come from there then, I mean just a load new ps4 games from random dev's accross the country.
I gauruntee more gameplay from knack aswell haha

- The user interface demonstration was great, it shows one of the best improvements in next gen, how Yoshida viewed the full stream of a PSN friend playing KZ and very quickly joined the match

- The EU "dedicated bandwidth for PS4" deal with ISP providers is a really "big deal"

- Vita is ALIVE

- ND and SSM games are set for a 2014 reveal

- 14 day free PSN+ and an extra 90 day bonus for new 1 year subscribers

- Discounts for PS3 to PS4 game upgrades

- Many more games like Journey, Limbo and Unfinished Swan

- Shadow of the Beast remake

What makes you believe Sony will reveal something 'big' at the Tokyo Game Show? They didn't reveal nothing significant at E3 or Gamescom. If they didn't do it at E3/GC, then they have nothing 'big' to reveal - since E3 & GC has a much broader audience.

MS and Sony are both lackluster, and possibly launching both the most lackluster consoles ever in history.

I can see Sony showing big Japanese games at TGS as they haven't shown a lot from those developers. Will these games make it over here? I do not know but TGS is going to be Sony pandering to the Japanese market. So they will reveal something big that people like in that market (may not be a big thing here but a big thing there)

I agree with MassEffect23. The line-up sucks (of both consoles).

In my opinion they should have waited longer, so we get some more launch-games, but that is I guess unprofitable since they need to get the holiday business.

ABeastNamedTariq1131d ago (Edited 1131d ago )

@MassEffect

The Order was pretty significant..my opinion though...

And, they can announce JRPGs. Come on now!

JRPGs wouldn't mix well with a European or American show. JRPGs should be announced at a Japanese show.

Also, I guess you missed that article about how Sony wasn't done announcing everything they had, and that there's a JRPG for Vita in development, huh? :P

@Tiqila

If you waited for every major PS developer to develop PS4 games for launch... You'd be waiting for 2,3, 4 more years after launch so they can develop more exclusives again! Think about it. You're right: they need to get it out before the holidays.

DaGR8JIBRALTAR1131d ago

damn!...who pissed in your cheerios this morning?

younglj011131d ago

Mass the fact Sony haven't shown any "big" titles should make you want the PS4 even more...Just take an moment and think about what developers haven't even teased their next-gen titles yet...

Salooh1131d ago

It doesn't work that way. If ND are not ready to show their game how do you expect them to show it in E3 or gamescom . When they are ready they will show it . It's that simple. They don't even need a conference . GC wasn't huge but it was alright . Price cut for vita/memories and ps3 . New trailers of announced games . UI , network partnership..etc , the best part that everything they showed is about games not like MS that do partnerships for sports and tv's ..

Hopefully they have some big things to show at TGS, I want some action RPG's!

M-M1131d ago

The best type of RPG =).

ABeastNamedTariq1131d ago

I thought wrap-ups weren't allowed on N4G?

OT: They had a pretty good conference. Now my anticipation is increasing for TGS! I need some Persona in my life. And other JRPG goodness, of course!

andibandit1131d ago

I would rate it, below average.

cyguration1131d ago

Really? When were wrap-ups not allowed? The entirety of E3 coverage is about press conference wrap-ups and opinions.

Do you have any idea how barren N4G would be without wrap-up articles and post-conference analysis articles?

ABeastNamedTariq1131d ago

I saw pending articles talking about conference wrap ups being failed because they were wrap ups. Reason? "N4G is a wrap up site." That's all I'm saying.

jackanderson19851131d ago

i thought it was a great conference for the vita but the PS4 show was kinda lacking

BOWZER351131d ago

So i missed the conference, was it good or bad?

Majin-vegeta1131d ago

Oh it was quite delightful if i do say so.

ABeastNamedTariq1131d ago (Edited 1131d ago )

It was really good. They announced a hell of a lot of games for PS3/4/Vita. Mostly 4 and Vita though. Most were indie, but all looked interesting. Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and Rime were standouts for me, you should look them up. Hmm..what else..GT6 releases in December. PS3/4/Vita are getting Minecraft now. Infamous, Killzone, DriveClub, and Knack are looking great as usual. The Infamous trailer showed off Delsin absorbing someone's powers (light, I think).

Overall, they announced a lot. You can base it off of that I guess lol. Sorry for the recap you didn't ask for. XD

EDIT: And Shadow of the Beast! Thanks for remaining me Sniper.

SniperControl1131d ago

You forgot to mention Shadow of the Beast! As a Amiga gamer back in the day, I am looking forward to this.

SpideySpeakz1131d ago

Mediocre, at best. 90% of PS4 exclusives were 2D indie games. Most of them, I can play on the PC. Nothing really meaty.

sly-Famous1131d ago

Yor comment just shows me that you are all about graphics, FPS and no gameplay.

andibandit1131d ago (Edited 1131d ago )

@Bowzer35

Well...if you're into Indie Games, you're in for a treat.

There were a few games that did catch my eye namely:

Altered Beast. The original(1988) was a sidescrolling beat'em up, but we didnt see any gamepay from this new game.

War Thunder. A game that I think is similar to BF1942.

devwan1131d ago

-Altered
+ Shadow Of The

Reflections/Psygnosis game from the Amiga, ST, Lynx, C64, Mega Drive, etc. Side-scrolling platformer with a disgusting amount of parallax.

cyguration1131d ago

Ugh, a lot of people missed the point of the conference...

there weren't just a "lot of indie games". They showed a range of games from low-budget side-scrollers to mid-budget adventure and platforming games to AAA titles.

There's literally a mixed bag of games. I wouldn't really classify Everybody's Gone to the Rapture and RIME as traditional indie titles but closer to a mid-budget game you might have seen during the PS2 era when devs actually took risks.

So yeah... Sony showed off a lot of "risky" games, I should say. They sprinkled in some AAA footage and some typical indie titles like Res0gun, but they had literally something for everyone.

I'm most excited about Starbound on the PS4, though. Now that's a straight-up indie game.

andibandit1131d ago (Edited 1131d ago )

no

but there was a game called "Rime" which I personally, group in the same category, but I could be wrong as those are not my type of games.

Majin-vegeta1131d ago

Thats better suited for Tokyo Game show in its homeland.
