VG247: And we're off. Sony just confirmed a massive press conference for GamesCom.
If this is shown live I will be having a party. They must be showing trailers for everything they didn't show at E3.
Hopefully someone will have a Live feed.
It will be up in the store afterwards like they did last year.
Thanks for the info. I just don't want them to cut it. I was at E3 this year and when I got home I was disappointed to see how everything was trimmed down from the keynote.
What do you guys think they'll show, I'm pretty sure they'll show eyepet and stuff from the London studio, I hope they'll show stuff from the other European developers, I would love to see some more Heavy Rain
Lets not hype this too much!
OMG! dammit Sony E3 was too much... Let the killing spree begin, keep'em coming. >:)
They will probably show a few games for the new motion controller, im guessing a couple of games from london studios atleast. I also suspect they will announce release date for GT5 which should be at the end of the year, im guessing november.
slim...pretty pretty please :)
Alot longer than the E3 conference. Lets hope they have some good stuff in there
Make clear everything about their games like the GT5 and MAG release date.
Hideo Kojima + ZOE3 = Pants Explosion I want Fat Princess too. I want more game announcements.
really curious to see what the atmosphere/art direction/gameplay is like. would also like to hear that "eight days" is back and wardevil still exists(but i won't hold my breath on those 2).
I'll be watching this. Should be interesting.
Holy sh*t! ...That's all that I have to say.
They showed so much stuff I didn't even want it to end! O_O Thank god they reserved 3 hours for this one! >:D
hopefully they got some cool stuff to show us then, well there must be something to fill 3 hours! they will probably show alot more of the pspgo tho, which i couldnt care less about lol, just tell me when gt5 is out!! lol
HOLY FLAMING COW!!!!! 3 hours?!?!?!?! PS3 slim, price cut, GT5, more new games, Agent, last guardian...!!! Maybe PSN-connect? Or cloud? Maybe PS2 game classics in the store?!!?! CONSIDER ME PUMPED!!!! Dont forget a hopeful name and final design for the PS Wand!!!
I'm with you man!
That's on my birthday. Gran Turismo 5 release date would be a nice present. HINT HINT HINT HINT!
I can only BEGIN to imagine what they will announce or talk about at this thing. I'm excited to hear about this when it comes around
Maby: 1. Killzone 3 2. GT5 3. The Last Guardian 4. Metal Gear Solid: Raiden 5. God of War III 6. Heavy Rain 7. Agent 8. Max Payne 3 9. BioShock 2 10. Maffia II 11. FIFA 10 12. PES 2010 13. Final Fantasy XIII And Versus XIII 14. Final Fantasy XIV 15. New Games! 16. PS3 Slim 17. PlayStation EYE (Moting sensing) 18. PSN Cards for Europe 19. Firmware 3.00 with ingame voice chat !! Wow so beautiful to be true!
I too am super excited about this announcement but to hype it up will only disappoint. I want to see each of those things but will run by the seat of my pants and say, I will wait and see.
Some people need to understand what is not realistic and what is simply not possible. Killzone 3 being an impossible announcement, there is no way they will announce a sequel the same year they released the game. People writing stuff like this makes me go major facepalm.
does everyone want in game voice chat.. personally I like to talk to the people I'm playing with. something like in game chat would destroy a game like socom, R2, and KZ2. I dunno maybe I'm missing something?
I have owned a 360 since launch and I can honestly say that I have only used cross game chat a couple of times. I don't know how people can play an intense online game and chat at the same time. Just the other day I was talking to my friend on the phone while I was playing Killzone 2 and he kept saying "uh...hello...are you there" and I would say "oh sorry, I'm having a hard time talking and playing at the same time". It might be a useful feature for some, but I find it to be of little use unless you are playing something like UNO.
HMMMMM what could it possibly be !
Great news. It means there will be major announcement, they couldn't fill 3 hours otherwise, that's just too huge. Gran Turismo should be announced for 2009 this day. It would be logical since most GT sales are European.
Just cuz it is 3 hours doesn't mean it is like E3 press. They will focus a lot on R&C contest, and stuff like that. I think they will show maybe DJaffe game and some PSN stuff, but nothing major, for that wait GDCKöln and TGS
It's the same event. GDC is the 17th to the 18th, GAMESCom is the 19th to the 23rd. GAMESCom is the open floor portion, as far as I remember.
How long was SONY's E3?
Just under 2 hours.
Nope GDCKöln is in August http://www.gdceurope.com/tr...
http://www.gamescom-cologne... I'm just working off this.
Lol i was about to ask you if "What are you smoking?!" haha i got confused so i looked at title again, i mixed it with ComicCON that is next week, my bad!
theres overkill and then theres this
PS3 slim announcement confirmed. And I'll be there at press day, curious what will be there in that 3 hours long conference...
So why not 3 hours.
I just want to know the name of the motion controller so that people can stop calling it a "wand" or the other things people have called it, and the final design of the controller. Anything more than that is gravy.
exactly what ive been waiting for.
"Micro$oft confirms three-hour press conference for GamesCom" I would have been put in a COMA just by reading that, for LIFE!!! ;-D
Must you drag Microsoft into any and all comments you make? I know you're in the open zone and all but C'mon. Being a PS3 owner myself its cringeworthy to see the fanatical nature you bash 360's and praise anything SONY.
I just hate the way he types.
oh wow i actually agree with murderdolls for once
Wow...thats my day taken =P
If it was MS's 3 hour conference they would talk about a new game called 'SALES'. Using state of the art technology they can now process more then one number on the screen in real-time AWESOME!!
Sony talked about sales during E3. Microsoft didn't.
but please sony dont spend an hour on psp. Show us something that'll make our jaw drop to the floor, like more gow3 :D
I dunno, I wouldn't mind a blitz of information relating to Jak:TLF.
What's wrong with the psp? Remember sony said they would pay more attention to it this year.
Its going to be like last year kids, a bucnh of singstar add-ons, some PsP functionality, an eye pet like thing, and then 1 good trailer for a game coming out 2 years later
Or they could totally shock you and awe the media with a new form of a technology that another company already has.... maybe they will announce some killer exclusive DLC or better yet give us new avatars so we can all personalize our accounts to show our individuality!! Any of those is sure to steal the show and keep the media busy for months!!!
As a mod, you would think you would have read the rules regarding fanboyism and the gamer zone. Edit: I would expect a mod to be held to higher standards than the rest of us. You should be leading by example.
Bravo, Bun! Odion, seriously I think the 3 hours will be dedicated to: PS3 SLIM Cross Game Chat New Exclusives Sony has not let me down in a while with their keynotes. I was in fact upset about the cancellations for Eye Pet to be developed. But, with all the Natal excitement, I cant understand why the same people are not totally impressed with EyePet.
never has anyone (who would know) said that eight days and the getaway got canned because of eyepet. Infact if you think eyepet requires even nearly the same amount of developers as a game on the scale of the getaway you need to learn a few things about game design. London studio is most certainly working on several projects and they should be hard at work with games for the PS3 motion controller.
I know it wasn’t cancelled directly for EyePet, but EyePet DID benefit: http://n4g.com/ps3/NewsCom-... SuperM - Don't be condescending. I am sure a artificial AI that responds to movements on a camera, has emotions and can draw things from paper to make it work as it is intended takes a lot more development to make it right than you are thinking.
#14 is a negative nancy. He doesn't like games, he likes to just talk the talk but not walk the walk.
Any why exactly are you a mod again? Was your comments necessary? No. Then why start a flame war?
Weren't they supposed to be announcing some release dates soon?
Does that mean Uk time? I hope they show suprises like Heavy Rain and Eyepet like last year. ...and release dates for certain games that keep getting delayed for Europe!!!
The slim, PSP GO, GT5, Uncharted 2 news, Ratchet and Clank news, update on MAG's release, and of course more PSN and HOME info. Look forward to it!
Gonna cross my fingers for a Twisted Metal announcement...
Why? You're just going to start whining about it the day after.
Whine about what? Twisted Metal? Or the fact that their only decent franchise has yet to receive a title on this terrible platform?
Ah classic, I love seeing your purple stained eye liner tear drops.
.. Is getting ready to take Europe, with only a 1-2 million sales gap between the PS3 and the 360 I wont be surprised if some major things are reveled. How long will Microsoft and Nintendo conference be?
3 hours full of massive pwnage confirmed
Let hype this alot because it could be about ps3 slim and a price cut hopely.
If sony do show off the ps3 slim maybe their have some new technology in it that would make you guys buy a new PS3 slim with even better Graphics Processor and sony's not using the RSX Chips anymore.
RSX is a very powerfull chip. When Slim PS3 does come, all Sony will have done is shrink the chipset and other componnets.
So you guys have started hyping it up already just because of the conference's duration?
