Sony's E3 2015 Broke The Shock Meter

What happened during Sony's E3 press briefing this year is absolutely historical. And it shows PlayStation's dedication to its fans; kudos on that!

Completely agree.

Anyone who would say before E3 that Sony would show TLG, Shenume 3 and FF7 remake at their conference would be called certifiable.

Heck even Horizion we had a feeling would be shown but only a trailer if we were lucky but when it went into gameplay they showed, Holy fuc*.

Getting COD partnership as well was a shocker for me because MS relied heavily on that last gen to remain competitive.

Lets face it. Last gen the only reason why MS stay competitive last gen against Sony was because of their 3rd party relationships especially their COD one. It is a huge thing as it is a sign of how much things have changed from last gen and how much harder the battle MS has on their hands this gen.

Sony managed to pull though in the end last gen on the strength of their 1st aand 2nd party. This time around they are continuing to build on 1st and 2nd while also boosting their 3rd party support and not to mention their Indie support.

Sony really are poised to repeat the PS2 with the PS4 with the way things are going.

The only reason the 360 stayed alive last gen was it came out a year earlier and was $200 cheaper. And then the PS3 was hard to develop for, resulting in worser multiplats on the PS3 early on.

And yes the shock factor in the Sony conference is unmatched. It's the best E3 conference in history.

I always said the winner will have the most surprises...which is very hard to do, due to leaks.

dmeador977d ago

Seriously? You think that was the best E3 conference in history?

Don't Do This To Me!

Just when MS thought they had a great show then Sony came with something with something totally incredible!!!!

jmac53977d ago (Edited 977d ago )

I didn't think Sony would be able to top Microsoft's show, but they did!

StrayaKNT978d ago

I agree I was shocked they didn't have anything for 2015 and only one new ip I was expecting atleast two or three AAA games for 2015 but unfortunately all they relied on was timed remakes and a kick starter game which is very disappointing imo

Aussiegamer, I usually agreed with you but you are wrong in this matter. The Sony conference did indeed broke the shock meter. The timed FF7 remake or the Kickstart Shenmue that were announced and will be out in 2017-2018 were indeed shocking as many people, including myself, didn't expected it.

But I was disappointed Sony didn't have an answer to the 9.0 Earthquake that broke the richter scale reveal of BC from MS. I was expecting Sony would at least announce letting PS4 owners that own a copy of PS3 games to be able to stream the games on PS now for free on PS4 to show good faith for their millions of loyal and faithful fans and combat the opponent but the dream was shot down hours later after the conference. As a PS4 owner myself that have some classic PS3 games still but no longer a PS3 console itself, this is heart broken for me and for many people too, I would imagine. :(

"But I was disappointed Sony didn't have an answer to the 9.0 Earthquake that broke the richter scale reveal of BC from MS."

I'm pretty sure they did.

Pretty much the same reaction all over the place. I'd say it was enough to drown out BC.

Anyways you really think that BC was the most exciting announcement from Microsofts e3? I thought that what they announced with FallOut 4 was more exciting but that's just my opinion.

xKugo977d ago

FF7 Remake announcement videos have millions of views of Youtube and made several people cry. BC announcement is quickly fading from most people's minds. Which was do you think was the most exciting? A game that's been called for by it's fans for almost 2 decades or a feature that it 2 years too late and will likely be used less and less as this generation continues to gain momentum and leave last geneation games and their consoles in the dust.

Stop being a fanboy and just except that Sony won over the world this E3. Their's a reason most of the media is saying they won and not Microsoft.

@Aussie & rookie

Tell me, which new trip A exclusives have you been playing in 2015 so far, in fact the X1's last exclusive was last November, 8 months ago!!................still waiting for the answer.

Dont you worry about PS4 owners fella's , we will have plenty to play over the next 6 months, Battlefront, COD, Nathan Drake Collection, MGSV, NFS, Fallout 4, The Tommorow People, Tearaway Unfolded.

There is no way either of you own a PS4 by the way, your hatred for anything Sony would have stopped you from buying the PS4 from the start.

Rimeskeem977d ago

You forgot that there are loads of multiplatform games which many will gladly play.

fallout 4
Black Ops 3

andresegr977d ago

Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears, Halo, Forza, Gears....

eferreira977d ago

halo, forza, gears, FABLE. REPEAT. You forgot one lol
But I am excited for those games and rare replay.

prettyboy12977d ago

theyll have halo 13 and gears 10 while were playing new and cool ips

Pogmathoin977d ago

Get serious, now you are celebrating COD being on PS as its home now, how many sequels is that at? Uncharted 4 will be out..... How many God of Wars? Gran Turismo? Shenmue is not new IP, and everyone going nuts for it, though it was mostly on a system that nobody bought, sold just about enough to be barely relevant.... Sequels are a part of the industry... Nobody complains about GTA, they sell in record numbers.... If Shenmue 3 was announced on X1, you would frown upon it because it was not on PS..... Did you all support the game when it came out on original Xbox? No? Because you are all two faced....

GameForever977d ago (Edited 977d ago )


The original Xbox only sold 28 million units lifetime, and when Shenmue 2 came out it had probably sold 10 million units. PS2 was the console of choice and it should have been released on it.

You contradict yourself by dissing COD for having multiple sequels and then defending other games for having multiple sequels and saying it's part of the industry. I know the COD announcement At the Sony conference is a big deal, the games still sells extremely well and is reviewed well.

Sony won with huge surprises and great game announcements. Great demos of their games and exclusive third party content. Amazing timing and presentation. They Won.

Microsoft's conference was great too, presentation great also but a great deal we already new about. Backwards compatibility is a nice announcement but do you really want to say that was what won a conference. Spotty BC At that. Hololen's tech demo had the wow factor but it seemed more like a game enhancement rather than something with real game play. Will be interesting to see if people will pay 4 or 5 hundred dollars for that.

They brag about having seven exclusives this holiday.
Halo 5 and Forza 6 might sell a few consoles but the die hard's that love those games mostly already have one. Fable legends is a free to play moba/evolve type game, they are becoming a dime dozen type game. Gigantic is another free to play Moba, has a cool art style could be something special. The Rare games collections is cool but not a system seller in my opinion, comes out in august and will be forgotten by the holidays. Gears Of War 1 remaster, remaster for the die hard's.

Relientk77977d ago

Oh cmon that's not true... you forgot Fable lol

Pogmathoin977d ago

My point with COD was about sequels. Did you not understand that? If Shenmue 3 was announced on X1, would you buy it? No, of course not..... People here are so fickle.... If geoff dahmer said he loved PS, you all would then say he is innocent....

You always cease to amaze me.

mkis007977d ago

You keep saying 1 new ip...Horizon is one
what about Dreams...your opinion on it notwithstanding there were 2 new ips.

As far as games for 2015 goes :uncharted collection, gow3, mgs5,fallout4,and just year is pretty full and that is without me adding in the rare collection.

Edito977d ago

You clearly don't understand Sony and don't understand why they are or top on top of the game, bring back Shenmue and Final Fantasy VII is huge deal try search in google for those two names and you will have a scope an idea of how big those games are and how much people loved/love them and we can't just count the internet because there are many lovers offline talking and waiting to see it on stores some day some time Sony respects the spiritual and nostalgic success of every game that made gamers feel something special and those two games changed many gamers and sony is bringing them back to new and old gamers bigger that can be?

rezzah977d ago

What mattered was the games and that is what the gamers got. The minor details you pick at are futile.

Need proof? Look at the level of excitement people have already shown through their various reactions. Even if you deny it know that you are fighting against a tsunami.

only thing that shocked me was the Shenmue announcement.

I don't see why the last Guardian shocked anybody. We all knew that was coming

kneon977d ago

We knew it was coming last year, and the year before that, and the year before that etc.

MasterCornholio977d ago (Edited 977d ago )

Many people lost hope already so it was quite the surprise.

Imagine what impact Sonys October even would have if they announced Agent there?

I don't think it will happen but imagine how surprised people would be?


Nah that's impossible. But then again I thought a remake of FF7 wouldn't happen so there's that.

kneon977d ago

They probably held off on the Agent announcement because that would have been too much for some people handle, the death toll would have been too high :)

SniperControl977d ago


They will 100% announce GT7 at the Tokyo game show in September.

MasterCornholio977d ago


I know it will be there. But what I don't know if its a 2015 title (doubt it) or a 2016 title (most certain)

Everybody was deriding The Guardian for predicting the game would be shown and nobody believed them.

We hoped it would eventually appear and if it did we never knew exactly when.
