"Gamescom is easily the most important games event after E3. The event allows developers and publishers to give their games a launching pad before the all important holiday season."
It is crazy how much gamescom has come along in recent years. Every year we get talk about how gamescom might take over E3 in importance
This makes sense. Playstation has always dominated Europe, so focusing on it more than E3 seems like the right thing to do. I just hope they leaned from the mistakes of this past E3 and give us a better conference. Let all the 1st party devs show their games. Enough Silence already!
The first-party devs /did/ show their games... All 3 of them.
All of Sonys European studios were MIA from Sonys E3 conference and we know they are all currently working on new games. I expect to see Sonys European teams like Guerilla Games, Media Molecule and Evolution make announcements at Gamescom. It makes perfect sense: Sonys American studios at E3, Sonys European studios at Gamescom and Sonys Japanese studios at the Tokyo Game Show.
@redbutterfly: I struggle not to call people like you names when I read your comments. Remind us all of how many first party devs Sony has. Oh, and while you're at it, note the ones with multiple teams. Then recognize that they're ALL working on PS4 games, and realize just how stupid your comment was. I won't hold my breath on your realizing it any time soon, though.
Red butterfly you do know Sony has more than 20 first party studios right, many with 2 or more teams, all working on PS4 games. So after showing 4 maybe 5 games at E3 that's all of them SMH

"Sony Ranks Gamescom As High As E3, No Plans To Change PS4's Sub Account Functionality" And that's why Sony sells way more consoles in Europe then Microsoft or Nintendo. Microsoft and Nintendo completely ignore Europe.
who ignore Europe? Im 100% sure that MS support Europe better then SONY, they just lack quality, popularity and games here.. I have proof.. SONY dont support Europe like they should do.. I have ps3 from 2007 and I still dont have legal rights to buy games in PSN or even register my country.. I live in Europe, Latvia (Baltics).. and thats only one example, SONY support only big or rich countries.. deal with that.. sadly I prefer sony and have to suffer for no reason.. I dont even need my language, I wish I could use my real country flag and just use my real credit card! :(
sadly same story goes for PS4.. at least they announced in 2013 that PS4 will be officially released in Baltics Q2014 (and other countries) Im hoping they will at least support all Europe not only half of it.. I dont even want to mention rest of the world, feel sad for them!
I get your sentiment but your conclusion it completely wrong.
Portugal is not a rich country and we have great sony support here
Is anyone in Europe rich anymore? Aside from Germany.
Calis- That's the downfall of socialism. At some point you eventually run out of other people's money.
@CALis- UK is despite all our moaning about just how wealthy weare having decreased... (surprising how few people seem to understand the meanng of "recession"-recently te the labour party seem to have forgotten what it mean aswell...or they are pretending to.
It already has, in my opinion.
"Sony Ranks Gamescom As High As E3," yet last year conference was average..what did sony reveal last year outside of indies?
They revealed RIME, a game MS said they regret passing over. Also Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, something thats looking amazing graphically.
"Outside of indies" When the best of the indies they showed last year included Shadow of the Beast, Everybody's Gone to the Rapture, RiME and Helldivers, I don't know why you're acting like that's bad. Those are not your average indie games. Notice… Sony's not even referring to last year's GamesCom. It's the upcoming one, and don't be surprised to see Eurodevs: Media Molecule, Guerrilla and Quantic Dream on the stage next to the "AAA" indies. ---- @ TheRedButterfly As much as you'd love to consider that video as ammo in your troll posts, I found it quite funny. At the end of the day, it shows Sony's dedication to games and developers.
the industry has evolved, there are developers making games all over the world, most importantly the EU. I mean, just look at the amount of devs that sony owns in the EU alone. SO of course its important. Not to mention gaming is getting bigger over there. there have been a bunch of us that where dissapointed at E3 cause of the lack of info from those devs, but when you think about it, wouldnt it make sense for them to unveal their games on their home turf?
Playstation is bigger worldwide brand than xbox . Last gen xbox over took Playstation as a brand in the us . But not worldwide playstation is doing great in the us but it doing amazing in europe. Playstation is out selling xbox in the usa but it's out selling almost 2 to 1 in the u.k. and 4 to 1 in europe . Thats really important because 360 out sold PS3 in the u.k and 360 is the best selling console of all times in the u.k. So as a market europe is more important than the usa because SONY has a bigger market and it should get more attention . Playstion still has its work cut out for it in the usa . But europe will win the console war for SONY sales wise PS4 needs more of a online attention to dominant xbox in the usa more online exclusive and first party online exclusive games hopefully SONY realise the important of dedicated servers to online muiltplayer gamers a huge amount of usa gamers . microsoft is pushing dedicated servers for its first party games hopefully SONY realise dedicated servers importants for their first party games .
@redbutterfly....Why even bother making a moronic comment like you just did??? It is easy to google and see Sony has near 20 large first party studios...several with multiple teams working on PS4 games...Unlike MS who cannot match the sheep quality of teams like NAughty Dog Guerillca, Sony santa Momnica, PD, Sony Londos, Bend, Sony Japan, and on and on. Look at SM e3......mainly third party exclusives or games that are 2016 or later like crackdown (Which is a below avg franchise)
"No Plans To Change PS4's Sub Account Functionality". i really hope this is not true, i sometimes don't get sony and the way they think, the ability to change your name and upgrade your account from sub to master should be on their priority list as features to be released on the ps4
this opinion is truth, in my opinion.
Your opinion of his opinion is also my opinion.
wait they were rank high during E3!? Ha! Must had missed something because clearly there wasn't enough buzz from them.
Indeed you did!
like what? Their press conference wasn't that good or bad it was average. So what did I missed? Edited: So you just gonna disagree then folks huh I guess I didn't missed anything then if you gonna stay tight lipped.
Oh god. This guy again. OtakuDJK1NG must be the new guy on the block, a try hard fanboy. You know there's no hope for him when he's already worse than the likes of Truefan1.
Given the mere knowledge of Bloodbornes existsnce... Won the whole dam thing.
I think you mean you must have ignored something.
interesting, a subtle hint as to what to expect from gamescom from sony.
"Industry insider Tidux who was spot on about his predictions about an Uncharted 4 teaser trailer and several firmware announcements" - I don't even.... Never change gaming media... Never change. Thank you again for stating the obvious again Tidux your insider knowledge truly knows no bounds /s
I am not trying to defend Tidux but he actually revealed that teaser will be set in a tropical setting. No one know knew at that time except him :)
Well I think it was safe to assume it would be a tropical setting due to the teaser given out on the ps4 launch day. I would like to think at least one of these insiders are real but I think people have gone mad trusting them all.
@LieutenantDan Good point there I agree but let's say it was legit anyways and the FW features around launch although looking back the way the info was revealed don't put confidence that his info was solid. Also the info on when the interface will be shown was completely off. The date by about a month and where it was showed was wrong but plans change so let's say they did. Apart from that all his stuff after have been based on what has been said by Sony or have been just wrong. e.g GG, thatgamecompany at E3, TF up on PS4( Just vague and pointless info without context on much meaning), iirc firmware 1.7.1 release date. All his recent info has been either guesses or iteration of what Sony have said already. His recent track record should be more important in the same light like thuway and peteDodd past are not taken into account. Past means nothing if info is not consistent most of the time.
i think E3 felt meh for this two big guys, only Nintendo shows up alive and kicking that day..so i think Sony will regain themselves from a boring E3 presentation..(cross fingers hopefully)
What's wrong with the sub account functionality???
For one, being a sub account renders the share button useless. Doesn't allow a sub account to share screenshots, clips, etc. Also noticed just the other day that I could not connect TLoU:R to Facebook because sub accounts aren't allowed to do that. I really don't get it. Hopefully there will be enough of a outcry from people to upgrade subs to master accounts.
I don't get it... my account is a sub account in my own PS4 because i share accounts with a friend so his account is my main account on my PS4 sort to speak. I always play with my account and i have access to everything, share and stuff. The only con is that i have to play always online but i always do that, so... Edit: My bad, those are two completely different things.
I'm holding out for some GG reveal at this year's Gamescom.
I lioe Gamescom but aside from E3 its TGS i'm even more stoked for. In fact speaking of TGS i have a friend in the Military who's going with his older brother to TGS in Tokyo. Can't wait to see footage of "Tales of Zestiria", Bloodborne, Xenoblade Chronicles X, Super Smah Bros., Bayonetta 2, SMT X FE. I really hope SE gets off their lazy Arse and gives us more footage of FFXV with a release date, sigh its hard to have faith in Square Enix.
Microsoft won last E3 it will be interesting to see what they come up with for Gamescom. Sony is in a very good position at the moment, so I doubt there will be surprises, they continue to sell a lot.
"microsoft won" give it up man.
No, no they didnt. Neither did sony. Nintendo won hands down.
If Microsoft "won" E3, then why did the majority of all gaming websites give the overall edge to either Sony or Nintendo? I agree with S2Killinit....you are trying way too hard.
1) Microsoft had no surprises. E3 is for things you don't know about. 2) Sony and Nintendo both had more new content to announce than MS did.
good, i wanna hear about some AAA's and morpheus please.
im hoping for a revision for the psvita or atlease an update where i can change my psn name. Sony is really starting to dissapoint me lately!!! i was hoping to do it on the ps4 ow that the ps3 was able to do it but i still dont have that option
I'm hoping they announce game sharing as it was on the PS3. The new PS4 model is one of the main things keeping me from buying digital.
I have a feeling we'll see whatever "killstrain" is. Of the trademarks sony filed, we've seen entwined and bloodborne, killstrain is probably up next
I stopped reading @tidux. Here my take on Gaming journalism. I am not a industry insider but predicted the uncharted 4 trailer at E3 also providing info on the firmware updates, oh believe it or not Gamescom for Sony is very important.
Same here. Still waiting on the music player he said was coming.
Not first time Sony saying stuff like that I don't believe them anymore good for Sony fans don't stop believing Sony
Sony wants to obliterate its competition.
