I (Robin Ek, The Gaming Ground) don´t want to sound like a Sony fanboy now, but Sony did just about everything right during their SCEJA Press Conference (Software, hardware, accessories, you name it!. And this is the reason why.
The 'Steel Black' Dualshock 4 looks similar in colour to the Diamond Dogs controller that comes with the MGSV PS4. Also, is the headset a new model or just a release for Japan?
My Japanese isn't exactly the best, but I did my very best to translate what Sony Japan said (wrote). Anyhow, it seems like the headset will be released outside of Japan as well.
Sony delivers once again. What's new.
Yep and they still have two shows to go. PGS and PSX.
Agreed. They had a great show. :) Cant wait for the nest two.
This conference was amazing, so many PlayStation exclusives *_* Now I cant wait for Paris Games Week and PlayStation Experience 2015!! Sony is just destroying everyone with their shows.
That crystal controller is sexy.. That needs to come to NA or else I might have to do some importing..
Same here, these are worth importing imo.
Hey, im the only Magnum 😀.
Wow Sony is just delivering on all fronts, and PSExperience is yet to come! What a time own a PS!
Anyone know when atlus has there conference? All im missing is persona info and this years game show is killer
September 19 from 14:30 to 15:30 JST. http://i.imgur.com/RXoyeoA....
Sony is raising the bar and they have no competition this generation
Unless I missed something there wasn't anything in the conference that appealed or even excited me. Obviously being western I'm not the target demographic but still was hoping for something big.
What about bloodborne?? Did you like that game?? Because they showed the expansion for it. If not then never mind me lol
I wasn't hoping for anything because I don't play many Japanese games. I'm more looking forward to PGW and PSX for that. Still excited for the Bloodborne announcement though
Ok so it's not just me. Sorry but another graphic novel isn't going to sway toward the asian market of games. The only thing that I thought looked genuinely cool was Dragon Quest Builders.
Western gamer claiming that a japenese game conferance aimed at the japenese did not impress him....good grief.
Im super stoked for Yakuza 6.
I'm interested in Yakuza 6 because it's exclusive to the PS4, but we don't know anything about it. I'm more interested in the Yakuza 1 remake and hope they do the same to Yakuza 2, so all the games will be in HD with PS3 graphics.
Yeah. I would also want to know how it all started as i never played the first one. But i figure Yakuza 6 will be the first one specifically made for PS4. Or is tge remake also for PS4 only? Not sure. Either way both will be games to look out for.
So many games, so little time.
Sure its not really a very appealing show for many westerners but I think some of the stuff looked fun. I got more out of this TGS than I got from the last one though. Still hoped to see more of The Last Guardian but Bloodborne DLC will do just fine for now :) Nier looked alright, now I have seen Gravity Rush (which I knew barely anything about before the show) and For Honor is a bit more interesting than I thought.
I have to disagree, many of us love JRPG's and that is why this conference is so damn exiting not to mention games like Yakuza 6 and the Bloodborne expansion.
I'm enjoy the show really.
yes this was awesome, I wonder why they can't put shows like this for E3
My wallet confirmed to be destroyed in 2016!
Lol. Well, it certainly was.... something. Lots of multiplats and JRPGs.
Extremely disappointing. It actively pushed me back away from PS4. I needed something to look forward to, to show that games for me would be coming someday. I've decided to go with the PS3 version of Persona 5, as the only other game of interest on PS4 is Dragon Quest 11, and I'm not convinced that the PS4 version will truly be turn-based.
You're hard to please, aren't you?
Not at all. It wasn't until last gen that I was displeased with gaming.
@kalkano Looking at your comments i dont think your trolling but you have a very peculiar taste, which is fine, and understandable, i just dont think AAA turn based games (which i think is your thing) are ever going to be made anymore in a big way, because it seems that the industry is moving away from them, for better or worst. The last one that comes to mind was Final Fantasy 13 which i played on PS3. It didnt sell well in the west, i think. Either way youre entitled to your taste. I personally feel that the PS4 has really been delivering in the JRPG in a big way for the fans. There is been more support for that genre than i would have predicted because i believe the success of the PS4 has allowed the eastern developers to have a large enough consumer base to cater to in the east. Personally, im really happy with the variety of games on offer. It has exceeded my expectations.
It sold just fine in the west, even though it wasn't a very good game. And, action JRPGs add no variety, when every RPG we already have is action. By the way, those "peculiar tastes" are shared by millions of people. Not so peculiar.
Well, peculiar enough that the industry is moving away from it. Also i was mostly referring to what i understood from your many comments which were mostely centered around your frustration with lack of a very specific type of game and nothing else, that, is what i meant by peculiar. I like turn based games as well, but its not the only thing i like as your many comments suggest is the case with you. I also beg to differ about your comment that "action JRP games dont add variety". Imagine if all we had was western RPGs, that, would be a lack of variety in my opinion.
The industry is moving away from it based on logical fallacies. They shouldn't be. I do like other types of games, but turn-based is, by far, my favorite. WRPGs and JRPGs both being ARPGs means we only have ARPGs. I want genre variety. My game-playing rotation goes something like: Turn-based RPG, Strategy RPG, Turn-based RPG, Strategy RPG, Action RPG. In a world where the only respectable RPGs we get are action, that leaves me with a LOT of retro-gaming to do. I'd rather play modern games, but the industry makes it impossible.
I absolutely loved this conference! So many games to look forward to! My PS4 and Vita are ready!
I was extremely disappointed. The only games they showed that I was even partially interested in are a) Japan exclusives or b) coming out on the PS3 as well. What really angered me was the lack of information on Persona or KH3...instead they announce a new KH remix to just try to suck fans dry. I mean really? Wow. Obviously they screwed something up on KH3, so they are having to delay it, thus they are trying to placate fans with this KH2.8 crap. Other than that, the conference was super jumbled with random clips being shown and guys awkwardly saying a few things. It was just really weird. IMO, it was the biggest let down and worst conference I have seen this year. I just hope that Sony and friends have more to show at the actual TGS. I will keep my fingers crossed and hopes up!
Loved it. Persona 5 to be unveiled on 17th. A new fighting game, Gravity Rush2, intereating title Oiua with a Slasher Onimusha feel, some rpgs, a few expansion packs, Resident Evil shooter, and some new controllers. I like the Vr name changes. Morpheus might confuse the public had it stayed the same.
A lot of third party exclusives for PS4 were announced which is good. Now I hope to see at least 20 articles about how MS not present on TGS is a fail and a win for Sony the same way they did with Gamescom.
This was not good. What happened
Umm.....did no one else notice that THE PS4 GOT A PRICE DROP IN JAPAN!!! It roughly comes out to 299.99 in us dollars. Price drop coming soon guys!!!!!
Dont think it works that way. PS4 is selling fine at its price point. I soubt there will be a price drop anytime soon.
