What does Sony have in store at E3? What's worth watching for? As it turns out, a lot.
Lame! There is no way PS4 games are coming to PS Now.. I also don't see a Price cut happening. Sony will watch the market before deciding if it needs a price cut at this time..
My friend said they already received the shipments for the gold PS4 and mentioned that the price drop was to $279.99. Not a major price drop, but it's competitive.
The price is getting dropped. PS4 is going for the mass market, which is why they're securing all these 3rd party deals, like Fifa. They are going to be a mass market price, in a zone they have control over (EU), aligned with Fifa, which is probably why their projections are so high for this year. Destiny 2, Call Of Duty, SWBF2 and Fifa bundles will do serious damage.
Sounds about right tho, also give them room to go down to $249 for Scorpios launch ;)
FIFA 18 marketing is with Sony now??? Wow!! All these years it was Xbox isn't it ???
any idea if the pro will get price cut too?
@fresco I'll ask him tomorrow to see what he knows. So far no color changes for Pro, only the base in gold.
Sony already announced PS4 games are coming to PS Now.
Yupp...I'm the one who outed the actual games on youtube https://youtu.be/fcxx7jV6Ta... This is what they have so far
There is a beta letting people play PS4 games on PSNow.
I think Sony already said some PS4 games will eventually come to PSNow but I don't blame you for thinking the piece is lame. Its full of contradiction in gamingbolt (purposely?) depressing style
PS4 games are coming to PSNow.. That's been known for months.
They are though. It's already been announced. Older games mind You, not new ones but still, PS4 games are going to the service.
PS4 games already been confirmed for ps now hence why they removed it from PS3 I guess. As for a price cut it's barely had one since launch, just chucked a game or 2 in with it instead but an official £50 price cut when they've already sold 60 million or so it's not that unlikely specially as Microsoft would have surely announced their Scorpio price the day before at E3 they announce their price (£400/500) Sony go oh yeah all our ps4's are now £50 off? ;) Pro's drop below £299 or stay the same price and get a free game... quite likely me thinks :)
They already announced PS4 games on PS Now will happen so you're wrong there buddy. Scorpio is coming and am sure MS is going to cut the price of the One S further, so Sony doing the same with the Slim model is a given as well.
June 7th Sony will start to sell the PS4Pro for $450 (China) ... 5 days before their e3 Press Show. Don´t see any price cut incoming at least not for the PS4Pro.
Sony had already said ps4 games are coming to playstation now. Lol you r so butthurt it's to funny.
PS4 games are coming to PS Now but only a few & the PS4 games that'll be on PS Now will be old games not current ones,any PS4 that were released within 6 months to a year that appears on PS Now would be because they were flops & I've got this from a very reliable source.I was told Sony wouldn't t be a fool to put new PS4 games on PS Now knowing that it wouldn't ruin any chance of retail sales.
If PS Now is streaming, with servers doing most of the lifting/coding, then anything can be on the PS4. Just a question of working any legal and IP issues.
Sony mentionede a whiel back ps4 coming to NOW
The console has been out since late 2013, a price drop is inevitable. As for a back catalogue of PS4 games on Now, why not?
They are absolutely bringing PS4 games to PS Now, but they are most likely to be old ones. If they want to sell subscriptions they will put on newer games, but they are trying to strike a balance and Sony has shown that they don't have what it takes to run PS Now service very well and I don't expect that to change.
I don't think we'll hear one word about PS Now on stage.
Maybe in a throwaway comment like when they're talking about games available on PS4 "...including great titles from the PS3 via PS Now". Then nothing else.
I'm waiting for a new Sony's HandHeld
I'd like that, but it's quite doubtful we'll hear anything about that. I love Vita, but I wonder if Sony has much interest in a new handheld at this juncture. It would be a great way to reconnect with the Japanese market, especially if it has some baked in features allowing it to compete with Switch. If they are, I believe it's too soon for that and I'd rather they not use that time to talk too much about hardware.
I really don't believe that Sony will leave Nintendo alone running freely on the portable market.
MrSega, I don't think Sony will allow Nintendo to run wild either. I just don't see a new handheld in the cards right now. Before they do, I think they want to tease out as many variables that lead to Vita's reception as possible. Additionally, they've challenged Nintendo twice and lost twice. I wouldn't be surprised if they're really considering the best course of action before making any commitments. Sony has been known to... feel inspired by Nintendo from time to time. I will not say "copy" since Sony seems to often hold old patents that predate Nintendo's new devices. Rather, once they see Nintendo succeeding in projects they scrapped, they introduce these ideas to the public with renewed faith. And since the Switch is new, I believe Sony should wait until next year at the absolute earliest to even think about a new handheld
@MrSega The portable market is being invaded by smartphones/tablets, no one is running freely.
There is no chip for them to use.
there is the Furian Architecture from Power VR, the same family from VITA CPU, it has only 7nm and it has focused on VR and high mobile performance, most likely will be the next iPhone GPU/CPU.
Actually AMD already has their Bristol Ridge APU (Specifically the FX-9800p), which Sony could get them to base a portable PS4 SoC on. Even manufactured at 28nm, with a quad core Excavator CPU clocked from 2.7 to 3.6Ghz and an 8CU 758Mhz GPU (that's producing 776GFlops), it only uses 12 to 15 watts and can run any major modern games at settings that work fine for small screens. AMD and Sony's fabrication partners scaled the base PS4's APU to 16nm, there are no reasons why AMD couldn't swap out excavator for a modified Jaguar core, make some refinements to the GPU and CPU cores to allow for faster clocks, fab it below 28nm and Sony puts out a portable capable of running games that are 1080p on the home system at 720p on the go. PS4's base GPU is older architecture, so with AMD's newer stuff they would need less than 817 GFlops to do this in a portable, even Bristol Ridge's 776GFlops GPU could be overkill for that, because of the modern tech, hell the portable being newer than PS4 Pro could have further refinements from Vega or Navi and be closer to Raven Ridge. Sony could even use a kind of checkerboard render technique to make lower res games scale better to a 1080p portable display. The tech exists now for Sony to make a PS4 portable, clearly there's a market for decent home console quality portables, whether it's in development depends on whether Sony decided it's worth their time.
Very much doubt Sony will talk about PS Now on stage. Or at least if they do it won't be for very long. As for a price cut. I think it will happen. The RRP for the PS4 in the UK is £249.99 I think. So they will drop it down to £229.99 or even £199.99 RRP. So retailers will drop them down to £199.99 or £179.99. Can also see a price drop for the PS4 Pro. Most likely down to £299.99 RRP with most retailers selling at £279.99 or even as low as £249.99. Am hoping they lower the RRP for the VR headset to around £299 as well as offering a bundle option. PSVR + Camera + 2x Move controllers + VR game for £349.99.
All depends on Scorpio the day before but me thinks a minor price cut for the summer months and then come Oct/Nov near Scorpio launch and Black Friday they can drop another £20/30.
Cutting the price for the Pro would be a brilliant move in terms of killing any early momentum for the scorpio.
Pro is naturally a cheaper and more underpowered console. And seeing as no new games take proper advantage of Pro.. it should be dropped drastically
@jrshankill Arrogant much? Especially since your giving praise towards a console that is still merely speculation. I guess there's nothing factual to boast about xbox so you need to grasp to jabs like that.
Retailers in the UK have already been putting PS4's in bundles from £230 to as low as £199. If the Pro drops price to £249 I'm definitely going to get one and move my OG C Chassis PS4 to the bedroom.
I all ready have a Pro my self. I plan on getting a PSVR around Christmas time. I just don't have the room for it where my PS4 Pro and other consoles are now. However, I do want to get a second PS4 for my bedroom and use the VR there. My plan was to buy a slim (£160) in CEX second hand and use my VR with that. But if they do lower the Pro to £250 then ill just buy one of them.
I think either the new God of War or Days Gone will come out at the end of THIS year.......Hopefully
God of war games have been known historically to release in march... Just saying
I don't know why but I was thinking March anyway, prob cause this year is rammed and my backlog is still massive Haha.
Spider-man will be far more likely given Insomniac Game's speedy development cycle plus this game being in development since mid to late 2015. Maybe even Detroit Become Human because when Beyond was shown at E3 2012 it launched a year and a half later. Detroit debuted at the Paris Event thingie at the end of 2015 so that could be nearly ready for release.
Spidey's been in development since Sunset Overdrive released, that was October 2014, though it went gold late September if memory serves me right. Spider-man looked great at E3 and the Pro's reveal. It's also a franchise that carries huge weight, Fall 2017 release seems very likely at this point in time.
I would only cast doubt on this because, historically, I don't think Sony likes to release exclusive titles in the latter half of the year. I assume they do that to give their own studios and their third party partners breathing room for big releases. That said, if Detroit and Spider-Man release this year, that might be it. Otherwise, there might be too much going on in Q4 and that doesn't seem like their style.
No faith in a good Spider-Man game. Spidey 2 and ultimate spidey were good.. but that was 2 gens ago.
Spidey will have been in development for 3 years by late September 2017, it's pretty likely that could come out in October this year. GoW's had anywhere from 3 to 4 years by that time, tbh both it and Spider-Man are well established franchises that can stand out from the crowd of major multiplats, along with GT Sport this would give Sony a huge Holiday season, backed by their marketing deals, great bundles and likely price cuts for PS4 Slim and Pro. Knack 2 isn't a massive deal, but it will offer something unique, along with with what sounds like many improvements in the right places over it's predecessor. I think Days Gone, Detroit and Dreams will be Sony's Q1-2 2018 lineup, because they're new IPs, but to be fair all of the games I've mentioned in this post have been in the works long enough to potentially release this Fall, it just seems logical Sony would want to put established franchises in among the other heavy hitting multiplats and give their unproven franchises breathing room, where fewer Juggernauts land.
God of War will be March. Days Gone I think will be February. It will get a blowout at E3, and it needs a bit more time for marketing. If anything, we'll get Detroit: Become Human and Spider-Man this year.
as far as price drops are concerned i don't care much still gonna keep my uncharted bundle ps4. The only reason why I even care at all is because it'll make business sense to make xbox just that much more unappealing by lowing the playstation prices.
imagine if they bundled Crash N Sane trilogy with every ps4 gold version...
I'm sure it wouldn't be that big a stretch being as it's not even a full retail price game but it's 3 games in 1 and barely £30... great game for them to chuck in a bundle.
@RosweeSon 'barely £30' I got the game for a crazy bargain £21 from Amazon using that gaming preorder discount code last month plus the Prime £2 discount thing :)
Onslaught of games, here we come
Barely 2 weeks 😬😉🕹
It's exactly 2 weeks from today.
I'm mainly interested in Nintendo/Sony Double bill on the Tuesday but yeah 2 weeks from NOW ;) all will be revealed. I'll watch micrsoft on the Monday of course but main event for me is tuesday 🤓🕹 ... so yeah still 15 days for me ✌🏻
Days gone demo Spiderman demo GT sport trailer God of War trailer Detroit trailer Crash trilogy trailer Destiny 2 demo COD ww2 demo Farcry 5 demo Shenmue 1-2 HD collection Shenmue 3 update Death stranding trailer Bluepoint Studio are remaking/remastering a Playstation classic Uncharted lost legacy trailer $349 ps4 pro $50 price cut fit slim Deal with EA for fundamental announcement $50 price cut for vr Atleast 2-3 big surprises Bloodborne 2 Deep down Sucker punch new ip Monster hunter 5 Could see them show trailer for rdr 2 I don't think we will see the last of us 2 thought that's gonna happen very likely at Playstation event
Shenmue 3 won't be at E3 already confirmed. Not Bloodborne 2 but apparently a new IP from fromsoftware If this rumor is true. http://www.gamezone.com/new...
Yea saw that but I think it looks fake tbh. Who knows though? I do think a new IP maybe more likely than BB2 A bit like they said they were not working on Demons Souls 2 and people gave up and didn't get it was BB a new IP
The rumor is based on just a reddit post though, and apparently there is a game that fits the description quite closely (Absolver its called I think). Time will tell, not too long now :)
@Darx ya absolver is the game that will be showing Ubisoft how to actually make online melee combat. really looking forward to starting the beta soon
They will most certainly end the show with The Last of Us Part 2 Gameplay debut and it will break the internet lol. Uncharted 3 was only out, and a month later TLOU got its first trailer with first gameplay at E3 2012. Then we will get the release date of TLOU Part II as Summer 2018 at PSX 2017 (Sony's annual console selling E3 Part II event lol).
andrewsquall,how you imagine last of us 2 gameplay if it barely started to created? in PX 2016 they said that the game is in "in early development,super early".so in 6 month they created a game and gonna show us? wow,naughty dog is super developers,in 1 year they can create a game and show us :)
@CP That trailer was shot more than a year before PSX. They long know exactly where theyr going with this one.
TLOUP2 gameplay demo could be their opener, with a 2018 release window for the full game, I think that will happen because Sony will want to mix up their formula from PSX 2016 and put Naughty Dog front and center. Bruce Strailey's game could also be teased just after, I'm pretty sure it's been in pre-production as long as TLOU: Part 2, if not longer, full development may have to wait until Uncharted Lost Legacy goes gold though. The Bruce Straley game could come in 2019, TLOU:Part 2 would have had as long as Uncharted 4 in development if it comes out Fall 2018 and then Naughty Dog can move resources to Bruce's game for 2019 crunch time and give PS4 it's swan song title or it could be a year one PS5 game. Naughty Dog has added considerable resources to their ranks since beginning work on PS4 games. I wouldn't be shocked to see a lot more games announced by Sony given how their Studios have been organized.
Im not sure about deep down, we havent heard much since they said it would be f2p in 2015
'Crash trilogy trailer' - Now that Warped gameplay released last Friday, I don't think it'll make an appearance at Sony's E3 conference but on gameplay booths at E3 instead. Would have been awesome to see it at the conference and the gigantic pop from the crowd though but oh well I can't wait to play it in a month's time. 'Deal with EA for fundamental announcement ' - Rumoured to be FIFA, which would be a big announcement with FIFA fans especially Ultimate team as it would likely mean the Legends players are going to be PS Exclusive. 'Bluepoint Studio are remaking/remastering a Playstation classic' - Please be Spyro the Dragon 1-3. 'I don't think we will see the last of us 2 ' - I think it will end the conference and break the internet. Possibly the expansion for Horizon will be announced by Guerilla either at E3, Gamescom or later at PSX.
Fair enough a lot of Sony's stuff is seemingly already announced Gran turismo sport God of war Spider-Man Uncharted lost legacy Horizon DLC Last of us 2 Days gone And Detroit With PS4 games heading to ps Now, Sure to be more games announced surely. Loads of VR Games might a few to make me consider it, price cut for PS4 as it's barely had one since launch. I struggle to see how Microsoft will keep up with this alone, yet there's bound to be a few surprises. Ps1 classics for PS4 or ps2 classics for Vita 🤞🏻 Nintendo will just do what they do and really looking forward to their show as well as hoping to hear news on VC for Switch Gamecube and GBA games please and new Mario looks epic, smash Bros port would be spot on gonna be a great E3 me thinks. Just hope Microsoft don't let the side down. Scorpio meh, Crackdown 3 looks alright but yeah needs games galore from Microsoft.
The ps4 games going to ps now are the really old games. Nothing to be concerned about.
Santa Monica is rumoured to announce a big VR game.
