A private event will take place in New York City on Friday February 13 where a "new PlayStation initiative" will be announced.
I wouldn't go there yet, but ill say this.....sony is bringing it for the ps4. Seem like yesterday psx happened and we already have another event happeing???? Sony may not have as much money as ms but they sure know how to keep interest in its console by spending this much on events. With this many announcements( before some games that were announced before the ps4 launched, come out ) coming, sony is keeping the ps4 momentum going with a huge amount of games. I mean there is so many games we know will come but haven't been announced yet...like gow and tlg for example. ..its just awesome. Good job sony.
Right now is the longest (exclusive) dry spell I've felt from Sony, and I think that's only because Driveclub didn't get the free version we were promised. With The Order just a month away, things will pick up again. From there, many great things await…which, I guess, is why they picked that slogan long ago. And their newest slogan, "This is for the players," is reinforced by the gamer-centric events showcasing what's next. I love it.
NYC is a sweet spot for Sony. announcing and showing the PS4 there was the smartest thing they couldve done. it'll be the best spot for big announcements that they want everyone to know about (that automatically rules out anything vita related). i expect a good showing and a big announcement.
The Last Guardian is biggest hype ever!!
Sony could also deliver a crushing blow to ms by announcing a price cut? Who knows?
This is something they've been doing for a while now though. It's the Spring media showcase, they did it last year when they showed off new footage of infamous, MLB:the show and a first look at the order. This year will probably be for the Order, Bloodborne, MLB the show and probably a first showing of R&C Reboot.
I'll take bets its about Project Morpheous.
I cannot, for the life of me, fathom why people think Sony needs to release this. It's not even a little needed.
Have you ever played a Team ICO game? They are some of the best.
@Skate-AK I'm speaking os some PS4 "Slim" model.
The PS4 is slim the way it is man. Mine works perfect as is, no need for a lateral "upgrade" with identical specs. I also have the 3 year additional warranty so I'm set until at least 2017
not going to happen (at least not this early in the PS4's life cycle), and the concept was confirmed to be fake. i just want to see more games!
Since this is a private event will we hear everything they announce?
We need Ps4 small, not slim. It's already slim, but it spreads out way too far.
I wouldn't call a new model a new initiative. Probably more about opening up the PS4 to third-party services like Spotify. At least I hope that's the case.
The Last Guardian is coming back!
That would make for one of the best days of my life
Of your life????..... :(lol. Ok.
The phrase "Get a life" springs to mind hahaha. Never-mind that^^ I'm glad you are so enthusiastic for this game, as for me I gave up waiting for it 6-7 years ago. However with the turbulent history behind this game I wouldn't announce its revival anywhere other than E3...
4theplayers I think it's a far gone conclusion that we will find out more about TLG. It's in development confirmed by Sony so I fully expect it. but I think that's more E3
Don't tease me, man. I can't get my hopes up. Not again. I've had my heart broken too many times already...
No, Crash Bandicoot! :P
No its not.
Sony laying on the smack down early in the year...
They layed it down last year with games then ended the year with the amazing psx now they're the only system with AAA exclusives for the first half of 2015 with more already announced(Dragons Dogma, new Square exclusive) and an event in Feb? Sounds like they're capitalizing on the weakness of their competition.
@shadyiswin I comment very rarely, but I had to reply to your ridiculous comment. To call Bloodbourne an AA indie is crazy. In no way, shape or form is Bloodbourne an AA game, and it sure as hell is not an indie. Dude what are you smoking because I want some of that! HAHA
Thank God your ignorance is limited to one bubble, also did you watch psx, a new god of war was announced to be in production plus superstardust ultra, mlb the show, dungeon defenders 2, drawn to death and many others.....oh and the second half of the year is jammed as well. ........wait why am I taking the bait??
@Shadyiswin You just went full retard,never go full retard.
ROTFL this is the 1st time i see people saying Bloodborne is "almost a AA indie". I guess some fanboys really losses a lot of screw in their head.
What crack are you smoking??? Nearly all consoles produced a SNOREFEST last year...the only purchase I was happy about was TLOU and that was a remaster...
I think they finally realized they need to go full in on PlayStation with it being their money maker. With Other divisions not doing well closing shops and cutting jobs in mobile (people should really buy more Sony cell phones I have the z3 and its pure quality) its clear they need to push PlayStation hard.
I agree it have Z2 after I saw my father's z1 he had for a year and their phones are excellent.
I think it's time I figured out how to become a Playstation MVP member!
This is interesting! Sony is not messing around this gen! I wonder what they have planned!
Time to see whats on the horizon. ;) Sony is getting serious.
Yes, at least I saw what you did there.
I'me excited. The more events Sony continues to put on fills me with more confidence about both their games lineup and maintaining a narrative with their consumers going forward. We're just off the back of PlayStation Experience which will likely become an annual thing, where we saw lots of great announcements of games coming in both 2015 and 2016, lots of positivity in regards to PlayStation and how it's changed the landscape over the years. We've had classic Grim Fandango Remastered to rave reviews. Quantic Dream are making a special announcement tomorrow morning, on the arrival of their new website. I'm guessing that is going to be the all-but-confirmed Beyond: Two Souls for PS4. As well as confirmation of a Fahrenheit HD remaster, if not an entire remaster collection including Heavy Rain (my dream announcement). Dragon's Dogma Online was just announced, just another in a line of Capcom-Sony partnerships/deals. Square Enix are announcing a new PS4 exclusive in a few days at the end of this month at Tokaigi Japan Game Party, and Tapei Game Show is on the same day where there will be more showings of Sony's Japanese lineup as well as possible new announcements. There's the God of War event in March, where Santa Monica will probably announce God of War: Ascension for PS4 and perhaps tease a new GOW game. E3 will be home to some of the announcements of Guerrilla Games' Horizon, Polyphony's GT7, Sony Bend's new horror IP, Quantic Dream's new IP, Media Molecule's new IP, Level-5's new PS4 exclusive and possibly more on a smaller but no less relevant scale (games like WiLD and RiME). Tokyo Game Show could possibly be home to the inevitable announcement of the PS4 version of The Last Guardian, and then some. Then you have the other events where games are announced like Gamescom, PAX, etc. Then there's this February event where we will possibly get to hear more about what's coming up. Marty Silva of IGN said he visited 2 studios recently (one of which is Sony Japan), and has said that the embargo lifts in early February, so the games he previewed are probably what this event will have in store. All these events and consistent announcements, just prove to me that the best is yet to come and Sony have not even begun to announce a fraction of what is in production for PS4. I've not even factored in things like Project Morpheus or their online services and features. They're pretty much killing it.
I hope they announce an API update so I have something to hype up and be excited about. /s :)
Wow. What else can they show. They've shown so much at ps experience. They are killing it. Greatness awaits
Another event?? Sony is not messing around this gen
This is getting out of hand.. what's going to be left for E3 if Sony and Microsoft keep trying to have events to out-do one another?
While i agree with sony(tho im sure they alot planned). Microsoft has been quiet so their e3 should be good..Hopefully
Even though i don't own a PS4 i look forward to these events so i can see what i can get when i get one.
Predictions: - More details about PlayStation Vue (prices, release dates and more) - Project Morpheus official reveal - PSOne and PS2 games on PlayStation Now - And new multimedia details like PlayStation Music partnership with Spotify, POWERS series on PSN.
Pretty much what I am expecting. More on new services and firmware less on games.
I would add this too: http://www.gamespot.com/art...

All these seperate events, but most of the major announcements still come from the same major showings we have every year, what's the point? Are you gonna do this, just to reveal one AAA game like they did with Drawn to death, or are they gonna so it, just to show gameplay of games they already announced long ago... Or maybe Just maybe they're finally changing the Morpheus to be AR/VR like I've been asking for, for years, maybe that's why they skipped CES...
Come on, Morpheus! I knew they would wait until Microsoft showed their hand to fully reveal Morpheus.
This is what I'm thinking Official price and release date for late 2015 with games that use it
Didn't media molecule say they had a game that used Morpheus? I'm guessing that we will see it there.
Yet their as different as night & Day, which does what for Sony exactly. Just curious.
Sony had no idea Microsoft was working on HoloLens. They, like the rest of us, knew Microsoft was working on some type of headset device. Now that we know it's HoloLens, Sony can move forward with Morpheus. It gives Sony an idea of what Microsoft is doing in the virtual reality world. Nothing, really. In fact, I think augmented reality and virtual reality technologies should be working together. Combined, you have an experience that blows everything else away. I couldn't be more excited for Morpheus, HoloLens, and Oculus.
Are they gonna have a memorial service for the death of the Vita?
I really hope for their sake they dont announce another vita..
I really doubt Sony will ever give a mobile system another go.
I honestly still think they will, but my guess is it will be at least another year till we get an announcement.
"Initiative" implies it's not an exclusive game. Maybe Vue?
An event on Friday the 13th. Guess Sony is not superstitious. :-)
Hope to see some JP games and more single player experiences because I am a party of one when it comes to gaming on PS (friends are all on Xbone so MP is just irrelevant for me on the platform), but as of now I just got too many games for my PS3 and Xbone to play, I got a PC to get running again, and I really want a Wii U. Either way it is great they are having events, I wish MS would do something similar but who knows these events may make E3 not near as news filled as it used to be for PS.
What's your psn name nobody should be alone on PS4
Lol, redskins26rocs but sadly I will not have a PS4 until probably summer time
If they would just beef up the PSN they would have this generation in the bag.
Last time I checked, they already have the generation in the bag. OT: I'm loving all of these events!
Project Morphious incoming....
I guessing more project Morpheus news to compete against the hololense hype. The last guardian as a launch title for it.
Sony PlayPad! DS4 compatible. With easel. PS4 companion. Lol just kidding. Is one week before The Order though..
DAMN IT and I'm off that Friday. I have to check to see if i'm off for that weekend then I'll go to NYC.
