All he said was "no", and knowing Shu he's probably being sarcastic. He loves to troll people.

And you gotta love him for that :D

i prefer not to expect anything. i'm glad of what i'm seeing and what PS4 has to offer.
cleft5  +   826d ago
I would much prefer for Sony to under promise and over deliver than for them to hype up something like it is going to be the second coming.

Now I can be pleasantly surprised by whatever they show, without thinking there is going to be some crazy reveal. Before this people where talking about a Demon's Souls 2 sequel being revealed or more info on The Last Guardian. That would be great if it happened, but most like it won't which will just mean you will be disappointed in whatever they show, even if it is a cool new game or feature.

"i prefer not to expect anything."

This. Also Keighley is an overhyping hack, so I'd just go in with low expectations regarding megaton announcements.

I prefer to expect something from spike this year. there's always something new sony shows on spike.

at least a last guardian release date or something.
chazjamie  +   825d ago
i must the ps 4 luanch line up is probably the worst line up i have ever seen for a new console. its so shit compared to that of the ps 2. might be an improvement over the ps 3 launch but thats not saying anything at all.
UltimateMaster  +   825d ago
We weren't expecting any new games to be announced.
That is reserved for E3 2014.
iamnsuperman  +   826d ago
I don't know. He is usually pretty straight about things and knowing Geoff, who bigs up everything (even the smallest of things), I wouldn t be surprised if there isn't anything. But like you said it could be Yoshida trolling but I am not getting my hopes up
DragonKnight  +   826d ago
Last year he said the same thing. Geoff called for surprises, Shu literally said "Don't expect any" and then after... trollface.

But if he says "No" he usually means it.
xZeratul-DTM  +   826d ago
@Dragon - I think troll, simply because if he said 'Yes, expect something' then as a gaming community everyone would be expecting something bigger than what it actually is and risk everyone being disappointed because of the hype we as gamers generate, for example GT5 when they kept delaying it so much and then everyone took it as it was going to be some game from outer space and when it arrived it was pretty much exactly how it should have been yet people were still disappointed because if the expectation.

Sort of apples and oranges but you see the relevance to a degree.
xPhearR3dx  +   826d ago
Why the denial? Seriously, not everything PS has to be a "big surprise". We're talking about Geoff here who hypes EVERYTHING up to get people excited to watch the stupid show. If you expect big, you're going down a path of possible disappointment. Instead, expect nothing crazy and if nothing crazy happens, it's all good. If something crazy does happen, then now you have a reason to be excited.
christrules0041  +   826d ago
That is a good way to go through life. A lot of people always expect big or huge things to happen to always set themselves up for disappointment. Keep expectations low and then be hyped when something bug does happen. Even going in for a job promotion I never think I'm forsure going to get it.
MarkusMcNugen  +   826d ago
You two just described pessimism.
xPhearR3dx  +   826d ago

No. I just know when to not get all hyped up over something Geoff says when 90% of the time he's hyping for the sake of getting people to watch the show and it turns out to be something not so amazing.

Remember when Sony teased that picture on Twitter and EVERYONE went ape shit thinking it's going to be some megaton game. Turns out it was a stupid Ratchet and Clank downloadable title.

I get hyped when I see results, not BS teases.
Utalkin2me  +   826d ago

"Turns out it was a stupid Ratchet and Clank downloadable title. "

This says everything i need to know about you.
CanadianTurtle  +   826d ago
I agree. These Playstation fans on this site can get really annoying sometimes. Don't worry about them. Let them get all delusional and hype it up for themselves. It'll be funny to see because they'll be disappointed in the end.

There's no point being in denial. If the man said "no," isn't that enough? Please give me an instance where Shu said "no" and there was actually a big event in the end
Xsilver  +   826d ago
xbox fans on playstation article calling playstation fans annoying go figure :/
Boody-Bandit  +   826d ago
I don't think Sony will be showing upcoming blockbuster titles for the PS4 until the VGA's or other gaming events. Why would they do it launch night? That doesn't make any sense to me. We are already lining up to get a PS4. We don't need any more incentive or we wouldn't already be in line.

xPhearR3dx  +   826d ago

Really? There's 9 Ratchet & Clank titles on PS3 if I'm not mistaken. Probably more. That's more than one a year since launch. One that's just stupid. Two, why get excited over a game they've been milking the crap out of since the launch of the PS3.

Ratchet and Clank was great on the PS2, ever since it hit the PS3, it's became a milked chore of bordum.
HaveAsandwich  +   826d ago
expect less, and get more. people suffering from anxiety are taught exercises to move into this way of living. its a far healthier way to go through life. nah mean?
Blaze929  +   826d ago
i don't get it, guy says no and you all think he's joking? What kind of logic is this now? Now you're just setting yourself up for disappointment.

We all know Geoff is a tool who hypes up anything from a new game announcement to Doritos announcing a new flavor.

porkChop  +   826d ago
What kind of logic? I'm not saying that something big will be shown for sure, all I'm saying is that Shu is constantly trolling people every day on Twitter. So, I don't know, maybe there's a chance he was trolling this guy?

I'm not setting myself up for anything, I was just pointing out the fact that him saying "no" doesn't necessarily mean no. Obviously the opposite could be true as well.
extermin8or  +   826d ago
read the ps blogs post on this they say "exclusive debut's and trailers for the ps4 games that will define 2014" or words to that effect... really thing there aren't going to be new game announcements... new exclusives?
Xsilver  +   826d ago
Come On guys lets be real you think Sony would have a Big event the day that close to the release of the PS4 and not show Something New of course they will but then again we will see.
ruefrak  +   826d ago
Not always. When TGS came around somebody asked him if there would be more announcements at the show and he said no, everything had been said at that early presser. A lot of people thought they were just teasing and going to show off something grand at the show, and then nothing happened. Turns out he was telling the truth.
It's probably going to be the same here. Just a recap of everything coming out and hyping up the launch of the console at midnight.
hellzsupernova  +   826d ago
It is the perfect timing, imagine announcing the next naughty dog, Santa Monica and epic games the night of the release, it would be a huge boost
PlayStation_4  +   826d ago
BTW, he also said "no" to the same question about gamescom!

So don't expect any *major* surprises, but some cool announcements nonetheless!
SaturdayNightBeaver  +   826d ago
Just look at this man, this is how job is done. He is always fun and cool and stuff :D Not like those shady and negative xbox people.
extermin8or  +   826d ago
Look at ps blog post they mention showing the games that will define 2014 for playstation 4.... I don't believe they'll just be 3rd party... might be like destiny as it has PS exclusive content etc. But otherwise I expect to see a new game or two-besides what Yoshida considers a suprise or something that we should expect mean he might not technically be lying... if Naughty Dog announced say uncharted 4, or Dark Souls 2 got announced would anyone really be surprised...?
Jaqen_Hghar  +   826d ago
If a man expects a big surprise then a big surprise wouldn't be a big surprise because it is expected and therefore not a surprise at all.
Bathyj  +   826d ago
You just wrinkled my brain...
showtimefolks  +   826d ago
means we can expect something lol, shu is awesome but you can't expect him to say we will reveal something big
Ausbo  +   825d ago
He's definitely trolling.

Why would he just say "No"

Expect One big announcement and some smaller stuff.
Although Geoff Keighly always hypes everything beyond belief and always underdelivers
MrZkaar  +   825d ago
I hope Shu is trolling. I want shock and awe, nothing less. Bring it Sony!
Majin-vegeta  +   826d ago
Of course they wont.The big titles are mostly announced at the major gaming conventions.It wouldnt make sense sincr everyone will be in line waiting for their PS4.
Volkama  +   826d ago
^^ This. Let the enthusiastic buyers ride their Killzone hype, and announce games where it will have more impact.
Crossbones  +   826d ago
Welp, There goes my wishful thinking, but you have to wonder. Why does Epic Games have a countdown clock set for PlayStation 4 All Access event?

christrules0041  +   826d ago
They have a countdown? I'm on there website and I can't find it....
christrules0041  +   826d ago
Thanks for the link. It's very much appreciated. =)
TOGC  +   826d ago
They will be probably announced at the VGAs.
mkis007  +   826d ago
I'm surprised no one laughed. Can I expect big things? "no"... You think he would say it like that if he was serious?
andibandit  +   826d ago
Well apparently it dosnt matter what he says
Iltapalanyymi  +   826d ago
Yoshida is trolling once again. Remember last time he said that? Yeah.. :3
TheFallenAngel  +   826d ago
It could be that yosh is trolling but Keighley does hypes up everything.
cyberninja  +   826d ago
There's only one way to find.... I hate the waiting game.
AilonTrusk  +   826d ago
Go ask someone if they're planning a surprise birthday party for you. Do you think they're gonna say yes?

If sony had a suprise it would have been announced.. I am certain of that.
SolidGear3  +   826d ago
You're psychic? :D
Jaqen_Hghar  +   826d ago
If a man expects a big surprise then a big surprise wouldn't be a big surprise because it is expected and therefore not a surprise at all. A man thought he would reiterate
Patrick  +   826d ago
Yeah based on his short and to the point "no". I kind of think they may indeed show something new and he just doesn't want to hype the crap out of it or wants it to be an "OMG I cant believe they just showed that" kind of moment. Its not as fun of a surprise if you are expecting some sort of surprise.

Or maybe it really is Sometimes I really suck at being patient.
Juangie3  +   826d ago
Wasn't it spike tv that showed only coverage of xbox one during e3? Im not supporting them they are not about video games..
Harpers_Ferry  +   826d ago
Trust Yoshida and possibly be surprised, or trust Keighley and probably be disappointed.

Not exactly a hard choice.
Destrania  +   826d ago
This seems like an obvious troll comment from him. I'm still psyched to see what happens. We also have the VGA's coming soon too.

hulk_bash1987  +   826d ago
That would be pretty crazy if they announce the next gears game is gonna end up on the PS4.
Destrania  +   826d ago
Please no more Gears.
hulk_bash1987  +   826d ago
Well just saying, that would be a pretty substantial blow to the Xbox Exclusive lineup.
DaGR8JIBRALTAR  +   825d ago
I would like to see that Samaritan demo made into a game.
WeAreLegion  +   826d ago
Honestly, I'm glad he responded with that. I don't think he's lying to us here. I think Keighley is overhyping, as usual. I'd rather not be disappointed.
sigfredod  +   826d ago
LOL ol Shu always trolling us
andibandit  +   826d ago
If everybody thinks hes lying, the trolling part would be him telling the truth
wannabe gamer  +   826d ago
Kneighley and GTV are the worst at hyping things way way way way tooooo much. always a big disapointment with those guys
HappyWithOneBubble  +   826d ago
Damn I'm so excited. I never been this excited for console launch before. Greatness awaits.
JuniorCE  +   826d ago
When something is kept in secret it's so much better ;-D
despair  +   826d ago
I'm not expecting anything, doesn't do me good to get all hyped up and potentially see nothing. I'll just keep expectations low so if there is some big reveals I will be that more elated.
kingPoS  +   826d ago
Good news is always best when you lest expect it. If you know it's coming, half the surprise is lost.

Dlacy13g  +   826d ago
I am sure there may be a surprise or two but nothing ground breaking. Geoff Keighly just doing his best to pump up his show and get all to watch it. I very much doubt if there really was a big announcement to be made that Yoshida would be trolling people by saying "NO" and downplaying the importance of the show if infact there really is something important/big to see.
WeAreLegion  +   826d ago
I don't think they'll make huge announcements at an event that nobody will be watching. We'll all be in line for the PS4.
cell989  +   826d ago
Then again what does Yoshida considers a big surprise? What we consider a huge reveal might just be a "meh" for Yosh since he sees this stuff all day everyday
-EvoAnubis-  +   826d ago
To be fair, this is ALWAYS how Shu responds to questions about surprises during events. If he told us about them, they wouldn't be surprises now would they?

Having said that, I'm honestly not expecting anything.
GoldPunch-TR  +   826d ago

kalkano  +   826d ago cans and a string...?

mkis007  +   825d ago
I get it!!!
Edsword  +   826d ago
This is just dumb, wait for the event. He might just be downplaying expectations because he realizes that the hype is getting out of hand. Some people are so hyped that Sony could announce 5 new games and they would still be disappointed. Maybe no means there won't be any 'big' surprises since news game announcements will likely not be a surprise.
kalkano  +   826d ago
Any time Keighley hypes something, it's guaranteed to be nothing. I still don't even know what we was referring to with past hypes...
coolasj  +   826d ago
Yoshida has already said that if anyone ask him about an announcement, the automatic answer would be no. "He wouldn't spoil any surprises even if there was one".
Moose9898  +   826d ago
I dunno, maybe he is telling the truth. Leading up to the tokyo game show, someone asked him if the keynote there would hold any interesting surprises, and he said no. During the keynote literally nothing happened, they just re-iterated what has already been said earlier to the Japanese spectators. I was actually really pumped to maybe see some of the games Sony's studios are working on, hopefully we are getting trolled.
