Sony – EUvita! OXCGN’s Gamescom Report

OXCGN:

"Montage videos are exciting, aren’t they?

Sony’s kick off to their Gamescom-ference was no different. Jim Ryan (President and CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment) took to the stage feeling ‘great’ to be back in Cologne amongst so many friends (this was followed by silence and a single cough in the auditorium, no joke)."

Finally some more info on Vita games!

Now if only the price had dropped...

MasterCornholio4321d ago

Well at the game store that I usually go to they said that they would be offering the Vita bundles with a free 4GB memory card so the price isn't to bad. If you think about it once you subtract the price of the game and the memory card the Vita ends up being 190€ which is cheaper than the 3DSXL without the AC adapter

Some interesting new Ips there. I'm glad to see that Sony still values them.

DarkTower8054321d ago

For me, The Puppeteer was the best of the new ips announced today. I now a must have.

BootHammer4322d ago

Cross-Buy feature for Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale!

ABizzel14322d ago

I was slightly unsure about this (was going to buy it sooner or later), but now it's a day 1.

DeusExer4322d ago

I love all these little Indie type games. Games like Limbo and Braid have just as much quality as most AAA titles.

gamer78044322d ago

they killed black ops for me. No single player story and no co-op of any kind. Basically barebones missions with some pvp tacked on. Pretty dissapointing.

Killzone has potential, hopefully they do it justice.

majiebeast4322d ago

Killzone is being developed by 2 companies with talent GG and cambridge and it shows in the debut trailer. MM's new IP has my most excited the playthrough was a bit tame but the trailer got me hyped.

gamer78044321d ago

EDIT: apparently COD VITA does have a single player story. Game still doesn't look great though, but atleast there is that

Sony shares big new PS Plus stat, but not the one we want to see

PlayStation Plus has improved the split of PS4 and PS5 players on its priciest tiers, but Sony continues to hide total subscriber numbers.

lol acting like it’s equivalent to ms numbers

Mr Logic14d ago

Uh...They're definitely not equivalent.

"Microsoft’s Xbox Game Pass service now has 34 million subscribers."

"the total number of PS Plus subscribers across all tiers was 47.4 million"

darthv7214d ago (Edited 14d ago )

That PSN number seems like it should be much higher... especially when you consider that PS4 alone has a sell through of over 117m. To not even be at least half that is rather interesting.

To the XB side, having 34m to an install base of roughly 50m (XBO sell through) or even 85m (360 sell through) is a greater percentage of unit to member ratio than PSN.

That's not the "gotcha" you think it is Darth.

darthv7214d ago

^^it's not supposed to be bloop.... it's just an interesting observation.

Have you ever heard of a PC before? I hear they are pretty popular.

MS started lumping gold subscribers in with those GP numbers... keep in mind.

What. Definitely more os plus subscribers but that makes sense due to actual console sales

Darth the difference between the bases are huge your right but you gotta think. Ps players buy more games, where as the Xbox base relies on gamepass for their gaming. So it makes perfect sense

darthv7214d ago (Edited 14d ago )

What makes perfect sense though? You say PS players buy more games... so then logically there should be more PS+ subscribers given the increased number of online multiplayer games in the PS4 generation alone. The PS4 was the first time that + was required for online play much like Gold was for 360 users.

Keep in mind we are talking subscribers, not simply XB/PS users. I assume you meant to say offline single player games, which is most likely true as well. That gen also saw a significant increase in games with an online component comparted to the previous gen.

I for one will be going back to essential at the next renewal. When I feel a game is good & right up my alley, I’ll check trusted reviews & just buy it.

jznrpg14d ago (Edited 14d ago )

I have the top tier until 2028 as they gave me a massive discount for all the years I had left but I’ll most likely go to essential as well. I buy my games but my kids do use the service occasionally. They do prefer to own their games as well since any game can leave the rental service at some point and they don’t like that idea. They mostly use it to demo games then ask me to buy games if they really like it.

RedDevils13d ago

For me, I will cancel it all together but unfortunately I still have it till 2030 lol

meganick14d ago

I would like to see Sony add a fourth tier of PS Plus for people who just want to be able to play games online without any of the perks like monthly games, store discounts, or anything like that, and it should cost $20 annually, $30 maximum. There’s no way I’m paying $80 just to play games online. Even the original $60 fee was too much, and I would often wait for sales to re-up my subscription.

P_Bomb13d ago (Edited 13d ago )

Essential is too expensive, I agree. We’ve got one Essential and one Premium sub. Dropping the Premium when it expires.

gamerz13d ago

Just let my subscription lapse for the first time since 2010. Will sub again every now and then for a month or so to access my old ps+ games but for me it's the end of an era.

DivineHand12513d ago

Let those numbers continue to drop because it is now too expensive. $80 per year just to play online. I noticed they didn't offer any discounts on the subscription or controllers during this year's days of play for the first time in many years and they will feel it when people choose not to renew.

My subscription will lapse next month and it will stay that way until further notice.
