Sony's Tokyo Game Show presser dissected - A bright future?

Dealspwn: Sony's press conference at the Tokyo Game Show was packed with information and reveals this morning. We set our alarm clocks and watched the whole thing and were presented with some encouraging reveals. So, what did we learn from the show and what sort of future has it shown for the PS4 and PS Vita in Japan and beyond?

There was a lot of positive noise made from this morning's show, and certainly made me more excited for what Sony will show at Paris Games Week. I mean, we didn't see anything from Persona 5 or The Last Guardian today, both of which I would have thought would have made an appearance, and yet I still think they showed off a lot of games I'd like the play. I'm glad the Vita got some love too - let's just hope that translates to some attention in Western markets as well.

Also, Kingdom Hearts' naming conventions really, really need an overhaul. Ugh.

I was really surprised that there was no Persona 5 announcement. I have a feeling it won't be released this year after all.

jon_snow3205d ago

On 17th during Atlus press they are announcing check twitter.

jon_snow3205d ago

Persona has it's own press moment on 17th just 2 days where release dates will be announced.

KevWriter3205d ago

Cool. Thanks for the info.

Aenea3205d ago

This can't be right, 'cos you know nothing Jon Snow! :D

Yep, no special reveal as most games had already been showned, another game that was promised to be on PS3 then shows up as a PS4 game, more HD remasters, as to be one of the Worst TGS that I remember.

Davi1233205d ago

Don't let's exaggerate, TGS wasn't good, but wasn't that bad either.

donwel3205d ago

Glad to see the Vita getting some attention, though it is still a relatively popular system in Japan, not so much in the west though.
So whilst I so hope that we see some more games coming to the system over here I can't help but be rather doubtful.

_-EDMIX-_3205d ago

Agreed, it got lots of exclusives, very surprised.

Great show when taken into context. Sony delivered, simple as that, not the biggest of announcements but many great ones. Really showing they have their hand in the pulse.

By context I mean, they still have PAris Games Week and PSX this year. Plenty of time to fulfil most people's requests.

Both companies have stepped up and bought their A game to shows this year and it looks like it will only get better.

Great time to be a gamer.

Sony Rewards Program Is Coming To An End on Dec. 31, 2024

Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced that it is ending the Sony Rewards program on December 31, 2024, and as a result that date will be the last time possible to redeem points and access your account.

This is a shame. I've been using it since the start. It had a few problems and issues but overall I did end up saving a little bit over 60 dollars using this program. There was probably not enough people using it.

Cacabunga4d ago

Is it playstation stars?? I really never understood it. I am still level 1

PS_HCT4d ago

This is not playstation stars. Sony Rewards is a US rewards program linked to a visa credit card.

darthv724d ago

I just checked... I have 144 points at the moment. Not even enough to get a $5 PS card. I can get a $1 digital gift card to Target or home Depot though.

I thought they were been done with this, I redeem some good stuff with this in the past. Wonder how much i got its been awhile

I've gotten so many free games throughout the years w this program, this sucks. I've been with it since the beginning.

I just run a majority of my needed purchases through it and pay it off immediately instead of using cash or debit. The most recent was on Tuesday I got a $10 dlc free. It was great as long you're not borrowing out large amounts of money that you don't have.

ChasterMies4d ago

Realistically, those weren’t free games. You could have used another cards rewards points or bought Sony products on sale and then used the savings to buy PlayStation games.

OtterX4d ago (Edited 4d ago )

Well there was a large boost on any purchase made on PSN, so there was an incentive to use over other cards' rewards. It used to be better, then they lowered it. I forget the exact multiplier though.

I pretty much got this $10 DLC free this week just by resubbing my PS+ Premium. (On sale during Days of Play) Not a lot of other cards would give that much back

dumahim4d ago

Right. I can do the same thing with my credit card rewards, but I have much more flexibility in what I can redeem those points for, including buying PS games.

shadowT4d ago

I never owned the credit card. Was this program available in Europe and Asia?

Profchaos4d ago

Seriously it was awesome Ive gotten a few free psn vouchers out of it.


i remember getting Assassin creed black flag for free with Redeeming my Points for 10 dollars when it was on sale this is very sad news.
