VG247: SCEE just confirmed its GamesCom line-up via press conference invites, and it's a comprehensive list holding few shocks.
what are the shocks??? everything listed is already well known about. so did I miss something here? never mind that is what he was meaning when he said few shocks that it is nothing new.
Wonder why home is on the list? Better be good.
hope for some new Heavy Rain levels. Can't wait for that game.
BTW. Anyone knows if there will be live footage of the comiccon? I'm guessing spiketv.. but not really sure..
There will be a few shocks that they'd hardly put on the pre show menu won't there? They wouldn't be shocks if we were told in advance now would they? Obviously they could just go over the same old E3 stuff but I imagine with this being a new launch for a major EU show they'll want a little of the wow factor. Putting my imaginary nets cash on some GT5 goodness personally as I'm soooooooo bored of slim/price cut gubbins it's untrue.
I hope the stream the conference through playstation HOME.
Why isnt GT5 on the ps3 list? :/
there will be GT5 at gamescom. full blowout + release date announcement (2009). it's the surprise of the show ;)
I believe the shocks is: NO GRAN TURISMO 5 ON THE LIST!I hope not,but im starting to thinks that this idea of GT5 in 2009,USA and EU release is just bogus and rumor!
He said "with few shocks" meaning "not many shocks" NOT "with a few shocks".
Took till 1.10 for someone with reading comprehension to post. I'm shocked.
That it took so long or that it happened so quickly? I mean this is N4G... ;-) I'm only kidding guys. =)
Agreed with mastiff. Of course nothing on this list is a shock. They're not going to publicize their suprises (if they have any) before the actual announcement. That being said, I'm actually really excited about Cologne and that 3 hour conference. I really do feel Sony have a couple tricks up their sleeves or at least some really big announcements (maybe things we've all already been speculating on that they'll finally end the speculation for with the announcement). To me though, there's just this air of excitement like something is coming. If not, oh well, will be interesting to see some more on some of these games at least.
Definites for PS3 are: * Heavy Rain * Uncharted 2: Among Thieves * God of War III * MAG * EyePet * Ratchet and Clank: A Crack In Time * SingStar * Buzz! * White Knight Chronicles * DC Universe You’ll be seeing the following for PSP: * Gran Turismo * Invizimals * MotorStorm: Arctic Edge * LittleBigPlanet * Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier * SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 3 Services and other gubbins confirmed are: * “Lots of PlayStation Network games” * VidZone * PlayStation Home * PSP go Sony’s GamesCom press conference takes place on Tuesday August 18, from 18.00-21.00pm CET.
Is that enough for 3 hours?
They all won't necessarily be shown but they'll be playable or separate booths with presentations I'm guessing. They also will showcase either a price drop or a new PS3 model. Also, there will be 2 version of the PSPGo with memory being the difference.
That is just the announced stuff. We didn't see Ratchet or Jak and Daxter at E3. Then we have unannounced projects to be revealed. I just hope WKC gets a European release date.
i have to see this
The more I see the GO the more I want one but until I know how you gain access to the PSP back catalog via the GO I'm not getting any SKU of the PSP.
the shock is... we knew all dis stuff... but they arent gonna show up wid juz dis stuff.... so there will be many surprises for sure...!!
"wid juz dis"
wid juz dis What does justice have to do with this?
of course they're not gonna show the shockers on invite
that's one helluva list! Sony a GOGO! GT5 is not listed, its either a surprise or saved for tokyo games show.
Yeh, awesome list. Sony probably will announce the Jap GT5 release date as late 2009 at tokyo games show. And GT5 will release early 2010 in the US/EU. Thats my guess.
I'm also surprised GT5 isn't listed. I for one think its hilarious that just a prologue of the game (not even the full game itself) has sold more than any other PS3 game. This game will sell huge. I'm thinking more of a spring release for GT5 though. ~~ http://bit.ly/f5cyp
I can't wait for God of War III and Ratchet and Clank. Does Crack in time have a release date yet?
No GT5 on the list.... me sad, but i truly believe that Sony will show off GT5 at TGS, seems more fitting, and they will need shockers for that show as well, so I wont be disappointed if some things don't make it to GC, we still have TGS.
More fitting? You know Europe is responsible for most GT sales right?
If Sony comes with any surprises game wise at GamesCom, since it wasn't listed, I think it'll be GT5 because Sony knows Europe goes crazy for Gran Turismo and there's been all these crazy rumors about it's release lately....if not then hopefully TGS the following month. I'm expecting pretty much the same build from God of War 3 that was at E3.... if it's something new, I'll have to close my eyes and try not watch the footage because when I get the game, I want almost everything to look new to me.
Cant wait for God of war 2 and Uncharted 2 !!! Those are my antecipated games of all time with Alan Wake and Splinter Cell Conviction!! Ps360 FTW!
Show off GOW3 with the new motion controller...
I don't see how a motion controller could improve GoW 3..? ~~ http://bit.ly/f5cyp
I would love a new trailer. of GOWIII
I want to see more gameplay.
Great to hear we'll be seeing more of these sure to be top-of-this-generation games.
Sounds good, hurry up and roll around August 18th!
Sony confirms 3rd place this gen! When the 360 was at 8-9k in japan the tards said that 360 is dead in Japan because of this LOW sales, now the ps3 is at 8k since some weeks.. OH YES i know, you say now that the 360 is at 3k, kk.. but it doesnt change the fact what you said some weeks ago = selfowned. 2nd think is: YOu get more games, MORE and better exclusives but you sell less consoles as the PS3 was at 599 USD and had no games.. so what is it?? What is it that makes the playstation brand failing so hard this gen!? Is it all because STAND ALONE BLURAY PLAYER cost 199 usd now and nobody needs sonys ps3? what is it? Every time you mention the CRAPBOX3FIXME like you say with NO games/ no exclusives and the WORLDWIDE KNOWN RROD (its more famous as the fifa series) you own yourself and the playstation even HARDER. Cause it must be really FUKN hard to have the best console on the market with 50 GB disc space, Full HD functionality, MOST exclusives, FREE ONLINE experience LOOSING in nearly every kathegory against a 33% failure rate console with no exclusives, last gen DVD and so on.. like you say. i know that if the PS3 would be on 1st place you wouldnt talk about MSFTs RRod, about their games and so on.. but you are frustrated the only think you have really fun with is N4G and your farts!
And I wont even bother telling you why, because your stupidity astounds me.
So what if Sony finishes 3rd. They have already had the pleasure finishing first twice, something that will never happen to Microsoft, because lets face it they are nowhere near Nintendo nor Sony. As long as they keep me a happy gamer I cant complain :))
Sad little bot, The only one in last place is MS. MS has heavily inflated numbers so the lead isn't that big at all. Price Cut + GT 5= Goodbye 360.
How did this article inspire you to compose that rant? Seems completely off-topic to me.
your 1 sad twisted little boy
Typical xbot kid. Mommy didn't buy a PS3 for xmas so now, he logs into freaking N4G and typing sales like any of us give a damn. Take it easy kid, xmas isn't that far off. You can pray Sony for a price cut and Santa for a PS3.
I'M glad you agree ps3 is the superior console "YOu get more games, MORE and better exclusives but you sell less consoles as the PS3" I mean the year and a half head start for the Xbox 360 didn't effect the sales or anything... It's a fair race 360 has a long head start because they'll need it.
I dont think they will announce everything they are showing will they? so if they are showing GT5 they would keep it under wraps so that we have the suprise element
...but you know DAMN well that it's going to be leaked well before anything official comes out from SONY :D
i would expect no less of him
i hope we see a new section for god of war 3 but i have a feeling its gonna be the same code that was shown at comic con/e3
Hell yeah, if its playable in a demo, I'll be getting my hands on it within 2 weeks from now in Cologne. HOT!
srry i think you got confused MS booth is down to hall and take a right they got Halo and Alan Wake ( Alan Wake rapes every other game on the 360 like a pitbull raping a cat )
Uhm no, I didn't. Only two games on the PS3 interest me: LittleBigPlanet and God of War III. You understand? So I'll be seeing if the demo is playable for press.
Sony are planning to release a slim PS3 before the end of this year and guess what 2 games are coming out at the end of this year in Japan (1 game will release all over the world)?...Yeah that's right FF13 & GT5. Now get this through your thick head! Japanese Bundle 1 - PS3-Slim+FF13 = 360 dies in Japan. Japanese Bundle 2 - PS3-Slim+GT5 = MS melts down. Japanese Bundle 3 - PS3-Slim+GT5+FF13 = 360 won't even be shipped to Japan anymore. If both GT5 and FF13 bundles are being sold at the same time then the will become nothing but space dust.
LMAO!! yo 360usetobegood when I clicked on that link my little sister was like what is that crappy white box I'm serious HAHAHAHHA. She said it looks like goo lol. Can't stop laughing.
Does it mean they'll be showing those games on stage or they will be playable on the show floor?
i say that because the game is the biggest in europe
Heavy Rain Uncharted 2: Among Thieves God of War III MAG EyePet Ratchet and Clank: A Crack In Time SingStar Buzz! White Knight Chronicles DC Universe You’ll be seeing the following for PSP: Gran Turismo Invizimals MotorStorm: Arctic Edge LittleBigPlanet Jak and Daxter: The Lost Frontier SOCOM: Fireteam Bravo 3 Services and other gubbins confirmed are: “Lots of PlayStation Network games,” including Gravity Crash VidZone PlayStation Home PSP go Sony’s GamesCom press conference takes place on Tuesday August 18, from 18.00-21.00pm CET. where cheap360 conference!!!!??????? M$ is quiet!!!!!!!??????
They're quiet because unlike us Americans, Europeans and Japanese aren't wow by a colorful conference (that's why everyone say they 'won' E3). They want games and services something MS has nothing of.
thanks Sony,now make it a '09 release ok?! OK!!
I bet they're going to announce a new "chat service" like twitter again. seems thats the best they can do.
how will kratos end it with the gods .. im so excited for god of war 3 even though the release date is so far away .
kind of getting a bit sick of sony showing the same stuff over and over, gow3 unchartered 2 mag and gt5 look great, but id like to see something new. Hopefully they will show something new from their european studios, maybe something from evolution or studio liverpool (is that what its called now?) A trailer for AGENT would be sweet, even if its just a target render for now (not fond of them but would love to see the style they've gone with for this)
plzz Sony a realese date for mag that would make my day.Also a gt5 date would be very welcome too.: )
