The PlayStation Experience event is just a little more than a month away, and will bring PlayStation fans together in Vegas for a massive consumer event. Digital Communications Senior Manager Sid Shuman gave more insight on what you can expect.
"and the indie presence will be massive" Hopefully not that massive...I like indies, I do but I think it's time some AAA titles surprised us at this event.
Crossing fingers for WiLD.
Now that I sit back and think about it realistically, the best thing for this event would be to have gameplay footage or hands-on-time with many of the games we already know about for 2015. Hands-on-time with the newly released games such as AC Unity, COD: AW, LBP3, GTAV, Far Cry 4, Dragon Age, A ***NEW*** section of The Order, Bloodbourne, The Witness, Rime, The Witcher, Planetside 2, DayZ, Tearaway, Until Dawn, The Division, and more. Updated Morpheus with OLED screen, and new demos with No Man's Sky leading the pack. New gameplay trailers of Uncharted 4, Everybody's Gone to Rapture, Final Fantasy 15, Wild, Hellblade, and Horizon. Finally wrap up with a couple of new announcements. We know about all this stuff, but seeing new footage, tied in with a couple of new showings would be more than enough to wrap up the year, and get people excited about 2015.
@ Bit & AB Sounds like a great showing. Throw Rime into that list too, while you're at it.
i hope for a Crash b , Mon Hun, Dragons dogma2 ..the thing is that Sony always overhyping ridiculous features like indie titles
this is no new info. it's at least a week old. i remember these exact same quotes from the same guy
same here, as long as there is a good balance Indie titles with AAA content like No man sky, Hellblade, The witness, will bring a good balance @IGiveHugs lol, dont see that happening, but it will be megaton as the kids say
I wonder what would happen if either No Man's Sky or The Last Guardian got a December release date?
Sony is a dream come true for me, i dream of Mark Cerny sometimes and PS4 makes me feel fuzzy inside!
You should have made another account instead of attempting to stealth troll with this name.
Well, there will be more than 80 Indie titles at the PS Event, so they will definitely have a big presence, but I expect AAAs to take up most of the show. A good variety is good though. I don't expect indies to have as big of lines, so that'll be nice while going between AAAs.
Dem Indies are the foundation of the PS4, don't like them? Then don't get the system. I for one love them.
@ryan741 Sony's first party developers, who are the best on the planet, strongly disagree with your assessment. As do I.
@medman Nintendo fans might disagree with you there. There's no doubting sony's first party talent though
Naughty Dog alone have had more success than all of MS's first party developers combined.. Let that sink in. Haha.
They've got 400,000 sq. ft. and as long as they're exclusive and have the appearance of a big game they will benefit Sony.
This is what Sony did with PSN+ money!
I'm surprised you are not commenting on the sensational headline that is not even mentioned in the actual story. Usually you and others would be stating how big of a PR marketing stunt this is and how the media blows these types of stories way out of proportion.
Stirring the pot...as usual Why bother commenting if you just going to try and start an argument.
I know. The title is so funny too. "It's a dream come true!" Sooo cheeeeesy! What is this, the 90s? We will find out if it is that awesome when it shows up, but my guess is any big announcement happens at bigger events. If anything, it is just a bunch of hands and early access. Probably mostly indies is my guess.
The headline is ridiculous. A dream come true? We arw talking about a console that's already been released so unless they plan on upping the power by about 500% and giving it away for free I'd say the dream is already dead. If they have a single megaton unveil I'll be shocked. Something both amazing and unexpected and I don't mean amazing visually I mean amazing gameplay something I often find lacking in Sony exclusives
You guys sure are dedicated to spreading the gospel. Fight the good fight boys.
Amen. Indie games honestly are becoming too much of a focus I wanna see something that makes my eyes bleed with desire. I've yet to see that yet.
lol baseless words always these one liners writers use to for "hype". guys it will be cool but nothing "mindblowing" microsoft did the same thing teasing some stuff before all their big announcements and all of them were meh. remember gamescom? "we have an unannounced ip" they were teasing weeks leading up to it and..... it turned out to be screamride lol. and then they say "oh ya we have japan studios working on games" turns out to be a bunch of indie titles. sony has been doing the same thing all year. "unannounced ips" they always say, and they turn out to be a bunch of niche titles very few people care about. ill be watching to see what they show but im not going to get fooled again which ends up always being disappointment.
Honestly, Ill just say keep your expectations in check Sony cant realistically announce a lot due to them also have game events for next year but they can go for quality announcements rather than quantity To compare the other game events announcement with this can be throwing assumptions around, cause you dont know what is going to happen I would be lying if I said some of the hype isnt getting me excited for this event
I suspect this event is to try and get people to forget that there is no real games this holiday on PS4 and be hyped for next year instead. MS is hitting hard with games this holiday and the price cut is taking it's toll. Remember Michael Pachter said that there will be very attractive bundles on Xbox One this holiday, so the information was out there way in advance.
@donhate It is Playstation's 20th anniversary, as in an anniversary of the PS ecosystem which began on Dec 3 of games is being celebrated, hence why this is set on Dec 3 also. it has nothing with the fanboy load of crap you just spouted
@donthate - http://www.cinemablend.com/...
Sony at Gamescom this year was probably their best event since E3 2005. Gonna be hard to top that.
I don't think Gamescon went that well.... after the conference Sony fans were more interested in finding out whether Rise of the Tomb Rider was a permanent or timed exclusive than about finding more about any of the titles Sony announced
You're thinking of E3. http://au.ign.com/articles/...
Have you seen the list of devs showing up? It'll be AAA titles to match the indies. They already have a great lineup so a man is hoping for first gameplay from a number of titles and of course a new announcement or two even if it's just a teaser
I always hear his voice when you type. It's awesome.
Too true, if this is a once in a lifetime event that's like a dream come true wouldn't that allude to there bring nothing better than this for the rest of the consoles lifetime? It doesn't matter really, I ignore PR speak, give me facts with a light drizzle of hype or STFU.
It's once in a lifetime now since it's Sony Playstation's 20th anniversary. That's why it's gonna be a big deal. Sony is just banking on their tenure in the gaming business, so they can hype this somewhat.
Well I remember a ton of people claiming that the February event wouldn't be anything significant because it wasn't E3 and Sony announced the PS4 there. This event will be the same thing becuase Sony would never rent a huge space like this for nothing. Expect plenty of announcements from this event and some bombshell. This is PlayStation we are talking about.
Not gonna set my hype high, for how many times I've been let down this year.
I know most ppl wanna contain their hype but screw it im on board my own hype train. Im hyped just because its playstations 20th anniversary. With bloodbourne, the order 1886 and other great titles being playable, all of sonys great developers gathering, sony merchandise, project morpheus. Anything else would be icing on an already triple layered cake. Can't wait to go edit: wait uncharted 4 is there too!!! Welp my hype train is now flying *hype plane
I really hope it will meet the hype they build around it! I want more exclusive games for my PS4! *____* btw.... I just looked for the HDD covers released i Japan on ebay... they are freaking expensive... I really hope Sony will release them in Europe, too.
Would be cool if its something to do with a PS2 emulator or something like that as I swear they said something when they launched the PS4 about wanting a catalogue of PS1 and PS2 games on the PS4.
I would not mind paying (within reason) for PS2 emulation software on the PS4 providing I can play all my PS2 game disks. Unfortunately my son has my old still working FAT 60GB PS3 and now lives over 300 km from me and I am not keen on swapping my PS3 slim for it. For anyone who has a PS3 you can still play all your PS1 game disks since all are backwards compatible, it is only the original FAT PS3's that can play PS2 games. I don't know if the PS4 will ever be able to play PS3 game disks although there may be a service that allows you to translate them for use on the PS4. Even if a service like I just mentioned becomes possible translating a PS3 game compared to a PS2 game could seriously eat into your hard disk not to mention those of us who have limited network bandwidth and download limits.
I'm hoping for UNCHARTED 4 trailer/gameplay and new MEDIA MOLECULE game and probably GUERILLA GAMES new IP. Then at E3 next year GRAN TURISMO 7 announced plus SCE SANTA MONICA new game (probably GOD OF WAR).
Uncharted 4 is said to be there and if they show gameplay for the first time that is more than enough to make it "once in a lifetime event" add GG or little of Media Molecule new game and ill be happyyyyyy everything else wouldnt even matter.
why oh why didn't I get tickets?!!! oh yea I was broke at the time :( well looks like i'll just have to watch the stream :(
I predict ownage Big Time
A man predicts your prediction being correct
I see this as more of a thing for fans to play the demos that were only previously available to the news outlets. I am not expecting any big reveals or much in the way of new information.
Would have been awesome if GOW PS4 was already announced and ready for next year. GOW was 2005, GOWIII was 2010, and GOWIV could have been 2015. First GOW on a new console every 5 years. Playstation's 20th Anniversary is next year. You can bet there'll be lots of surprise announcements at the event. If not, I think I'll cry myself to bed that night.
With buzzwords like this, disappointment awaits.
If they show anything Uncharted 4 i will be pleased
The Last Guardian, please! It has to be!!! "Once in a lifetime" and "a dream come true". If not The Last Guardian then it must be Agent, or acquiring the rights to Crash.
I'll go into this with cautious optimism. They hyped up TGS a lot and the announcements before the conference were awesome. The conference itself was really disappointing. Hopefully this one will be better.
If Vita is there then hell yeah! Can't wait for it now!
Well Sony needs some good/big news going for it, since lately everyone wants to act like the Xbone is the greatest thing since the PS2 and shit on PS4. Please don't spend too much time on Indies or multuplat games, we've had enough of that at E3 and Gamescom. All I care about Are the big exclusives.
If a game looking interesting to me, it doesn't matter if it's indie, or AAA. Though, I agree that Sony just needs to draw back the curtain and unveil Uncharted 4 gameplay, and whatever new games and IPs Guerrilla, Bend Studio, Media Molecule, Quantic Dream, Santa Monica, London Studio, Japan Studio are working on, and of course… Polyphony with GT7 and Team Ico with TLG. As well as a Shenmue partnership with Sega and Yu of course. ;)
So sick of sites over hyping everything. It seems to be worse with anything sony related. It's almost like they want to build unrealistic expectations so then they can bitch about how disappointing it was.
I'll be there! Can't wait! If you're going PLEASE BRING YOUR VITA!
“Like a Dream Come True;” I hope its The Last Guardian.
All I want is an Uncharted 4 trailer, not another teaser, and I'll be completely satisfied.
Who needs Driveclub PS Plus or to put a PS4 in rest mode when you have this!
(What about PlayStation Vita? Fan of the platform shouldn’t worry. As Shuman himself mentioned in the comments of another PlayStation Blog post. "Vita will definitely be there and in a prominent way. Fear not!) hopefully Sony actually stands to there words
Ok Sony, you're TELLING a community that's notoriously in love with complaining that your show will be big. You better deliver!
Just get some BIG games out Sony, without screwing them up, ala Driveclub style.... We all know that Sony always ends up with the greatest collection of must play titles on there machines, BUT, why does it seem with PS4 we will be waiting for greatness for such a long time. If Sony had of given Insomniac more perks & respect, I could be playing Resistance 4 right now....If Sony had NOT killed off Zipper, I could be playing a new Zipper PS4 title right now, maybe even the conqueror of the greatest console online game of all time, in Socom.... How bout a PS4 Warhawk 2, or Twisted Metal PS4, or Wipeout PS4....all these titles probably will never be seen again, as Sony either killed off, or scared off the developers responsible for these gems. Get the games to us Sony...
Can't wait to see more heavy hitters! PS4 will already have the best games in 2015! How can they fit any more?
I look forward to disappointment. Set the bar too high and you won't reach it.
As with anything that gets this level of hype these days, expect massive disappointment, and confused comments like "So, what was the big reveal supposed to be?"
indeed. They are hyping this like the second coming and I really doubt they'll be able to deliver. Because seriously, when was the last time an event was hyped through the roof and it delivered? The answer is: never.
If they don't announce a Final Fantasy 7 exclusive remaster I will be super bummed out. :(
This what Sony does for the players... instead pushing games this holiday season for you to enjoy, they put together a hype show for next holiday season... you guys eat it up.. isn't the reason we have E3?
