Sony Gamescom Conference Finished

It's all over! There was no new PS3 hardware, and certainly nothing on PS4, but Sony announced a bunch of new games including several for PS3 (Until Dawn, Rain and Puppeteer) and others for Vita (Media Molecule's lovely new game Tearaway), while there were also various service announcements for PlayStation Plus and PlayStation Mobile, and more news on things like Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified. Read through the live report below to get a sense of how it unfolded...

    Excellent - cloud storage bumped to 1 GB fixes the one plus feature I wasn't completely satisfied with.
  • blacksea 2 years ago

    '..and certainly nothing on PS4'

    :(
  • layleeloo 2 years ago

    Overall it was dull as piss. My PS3 just broke and my Jedi blu ray is stuck in it. Think I'll get that out and buy a Blu Ray player rather than anoter PS3. Time to move on.
  • frazzl 2 years ago

    I like:
    1) AC3:Liberation on the Vita.
    2) Cross-buy.
    3) PS1 games on the Vita.

    Everything else looked a bit meh though.
  • Dismiss 2 years ago

    Here's hoping Mercenary pulls off what Burning Skies couldn't. All in all, a pretty decent showing. Lots of stuff I'll be looking forward to.
  • makeamazing 2 years ago

    No they didnt @CloisterBlack... looks like that might be for the Japan event now.

    Rumour had it that they still had too much old stock to shift.
  • CloisterBlack 2 years ago

    Somebody tell me real quick, did they announce the ultra slim PS3?
  • makeamazing 2 years ago

    Well for the last two years MS has not really done much for gamers unless they were under 10 years old.

    The wii-u is exactly what the Wii is, a device that will ultimately have very little 3rd party support and will probably be swamped with mini games. It's great you love it, but that doesnt make everything Sony does as crap, as your comments seem to suggest.
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    All I'm saying is: it's not as bad as some...
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @Daniel_Spencer

    Don't be silly, the anticipation is half the fun! The giddy hope for some really, really cool, the crushing disappointment of yet another sequel, the WTF of the truly baffling decisions, and then the sweet, sweet floral nectar of feeling your soul become broken and blackened as the cycle repeats itself every single year and you know your transformation into cynical, bitter, twisted evil overlord of the world is one step closer to reality.
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    @darkmorgado, innovative? Well the game design is nothing new but if I judge innovation by 'superficial' game design than it's character, I'd feel rather shallow.

    Case and point: Sotc, everything it does most action adventure games do it better. Yet it made me root for a character than just about most action adventure games such as link in Zelda, with about 1 tenth of the dialogue. Why? Atmosphere, feeling and superfluous transition to pure charm. Rain inspired that in me.
  • overcorpse 2 years ago

    Dorkmorgado still at it i see.
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    @darkmorgado Well no conference as of late have set anything on fire. Sony's come of better than the big three during E3 and whilst it's relatively muted it worked. Unless you have that high expectations maybe you shouldn't watch these conferences and wait for the announcements instead.
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @makeamazing

    1. How do you know MS aren't making new stuff? All you know is that they haven't announced it. With next gen just a year away I find it hard to believe they aren't cooking something new at Xbox towers, especially after the bashing they've had in the last couple of years over their family focus.

    2. You don't like the WiiU? Fine, that's cool. But I am, and they've shown some cool exclusive games for it that I want already.
  • MARKIV 2 years ago

    Disagree on the interaction thing, surely it's about where the experience takes you. Immersion. Interaction Is part of that, but not solely.
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @Daniel_Spencer this Sony one didn't exactly set the world in fire. Sony have been just as bad recently. In fact, I can't think of a really interesting E3 since... erm, the reveal of this gen.
  • makeamazing 2 years ago

    @Darkmorgado, you really need to be a little less blinkered me thinks...

    1. Only Sony could be bothered to turn up to GamesCom. And had new ip, doesnt matter if YOU didnt like them, at least they are making stuff, MS arn't and Nintendo just keep making the same old stuff.
    2. Nintendo are launching the Wii-U this year and their E3 was very poor... and dont have anything new to say with 3/4 months to go (doesnt bode well).
  • eddiehitler 2 years ago

    still not buying a vita - no price cut! :-(
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @Daniel_Spencer

    Innovative how? Please point out what I missed because I watched the same stream you did and I saw nothing innovative there at all.
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    @darkmorgado, "MS only do the E3 conference" well they screwed that up as well...good times I guess.
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @Spacemonkey

    But of all the Vita games they showed, nearly every one of them is just a port of the PS3 version. They're not really Vita games at all, they're PS3 games that happen to run on the Vita. Factor in Cross-buy, and you may as well just buy the PS3 version anyway as you then get the Vita one free.
    Of the three original games that were there, three were already known about and are just updates of existing IP. So that just leaves a single Vita-exclusive game. Hardly a brilliant sign.
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    @darkmorgado But those games were innovative, frankly games like Limbo were written of as simple platformers until they were played. New ideas come and go. If any those games can build atmosphere than it's successful in my book.
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @BAM!

    MS only do the E3 conference.

    Nice try though.
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @Widge

    Tearaway looks nice, but nothing that hasn't been done before. Same with Rain and Puppeteer. Aside from a nice aesthetic, there's nothing in the gameplay that breaking new ground.

    It's probably a symptom of the this generation going on for so damn long, but it's disappointing nonetheless.
  • BAM! 2 years ago

    Great stuff, when is the MS conf?

    Oh that's right, they don't have anything to show. Again.
  • Widge 2 years ago

    I'm eager to hear your critical breakdown of the tired and predictable titles like Rain, Puppeteer and Tearaway.
  • Kysen 2 years ago

    Weak display overall. The Vita deserves better than this.
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @Daniel_Spencer

    New IP means nothing if the games themselves don't show anything new or innovative.
  • Laythe_AD 2 years ago

    Well, the Vita has gone from having just Gravity Rush as a reason to buy it, to Gravity Rush and Tearaway. I suppose that's something. I need more games for the damn thing.
  • SpaceMonkey77 2 years ago

    Not a bad con. Nice to see some new product.

    AR stuff they are doing is more than we've seen Nintendo do, while its not for me,, its nice to see them chasing something no one else is.

    Vita games look cool, and Cross Play makes a lot of sense. Will give a lot of Vita owners something to play, while waiting for Vita games.
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    @darkmorgado, well you have absurdly high standards. Rain and puppeteer both looked interesting to me.
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    Heh a live Q and A.

    Questions I want to see asked that will never happen:

    "Why are you ripping off Nintendo again?"

    "If you're so confident about the Vita, why are most of the upcoming games just ports of the PS3 version?"

    "Why are you wasting your money on Wonderbook? You'll never recoup your dev costs"
  • albo 2 years ago

    will the Q&A be on the embedded stream here?
  • johnson81 2 years ago

    To be fair the framerate didn't look great on Resistance: BS and I thought that was pretty solid.
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @Daniel_Spencer and only one of them looked interesting and not just something that's been done a thousand times.
  • Kremlik 2 years ago

    the next GoW multiplayer was on just looked sweeeeeeeeet
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    "Tearaway's the clear highlight, and the Vita's looking an awful lot healthier after all that."

    Really? A rip off of the Wii U and one new IP that we didn't already know about? Looks the same as ever IMO.
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    @darkmorgado disappointing? well they announced more new ip here than they did in E3.
  • mumblyjoe 2 years ago

    Is there a Kinect conference later?
  • greenthumb 2 years ago

    COD vita looked pants. bit gutted by that a semi decent FPS would have been nice
  • ROMhack 2 years ago

    Why would anybody who likes COD want the vita version though? Surely for what the average COD fan is interested in, the game will suffice (let's say multiplayer on the tele). Where's the unique driving force for buying a vita and cod?
  • Kremlik 2 years ago

    I enjoyed that show a lot actually.

    Too many gimmicks.
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    Umm, Powerstone?
  • maxleonhart 2 years ago

    very wrong game to end with... looks like crap, should've ended with the Last of Us
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @FarFromSane

    I doubt it. COD may sell like hotcakes on home consoles, but I don't see it shifting consoles.
  • Widge 2 years ago

    Think I'd rather see what that Killzone effort has to offer.
  • enfilade 2 years ago

    CoD looked HORRIBLE.
  • Bibbo 2 years ago

    Well, Mr. Stutter was brilliant. Otherwise, almost a waste of time bar a couple of titles.
  • Baleoce 2 years ago

    I like the cross buy announcement. and PS+ for Vita. Also the new IP's.
  • Climhazzard 2 years ago

    Another CoD game. Yeah we really want that...
  • X201 2 years ago

    Martin we can still see the room.. wave at the camera

    No super slim then.
  • SolidSinghs 2 years ago

    @saraptor hahahahahah!
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    Oh look, more COD, for the three people who still get excited about that sort of thing after fifty billion previous games.
  • GI-Joel 2 years ago

    5 new games.......

    COD on vita.....?

    GASH
  • TheOnlyPaulV 2 years ago

    COD? Vita? that looks like ASS.
  • albo 2 years ago

    shame they had to end with this after all the talk of innovation and new experiences...should just let it end on a good note
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    nuketown on vita?
  • FarFromSane 2 years ago

    CoD will sell a lot of vita's over christmas

    It looks fun, but nothing groundbreaking.

  • 5lectro 2 years ago

    1) Shake hands
    2) Join hands
  • martinh 2 years ago

    When is the Ninty / MS conference? I'm actually fairly pleased with that conference. They may have talked me into a Vita.
  • Kremlik 2 years ago

    @CountChocula yea buy a ps4 on release and enjoy the 2 games worth getting and ignore the 20+ great titles on the ps3... the ps3 still have life in it - look at the ps2 thats still selling
  • Climhazzard 2 years ago

    Can't wait for The Last of Us.
  • CountChocula 2 years ago

    i hope Fallout 4 will have better combat animations than new vegas
  • ROMhack 2 years ago

    I like the look of this game but is it too much action-orientated? The theme sounds like the most interesting part (and it looks nice)
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    Oh well. All in all that was horrendously disappointing. Oh well.
  • martinh 2 years ago

    Man, I'd much rather play Puppeteer than Last of Us. Hooray for games that look utterly INSANE rather than 'gritty'.
  • TazerFan 2 years ago

    This is the same trailer from E3, correct?
  • munki83 2 years ago

    Wait thats not Dubstep!
  • CountChocula 2 years ago

    was considering getting a PS3 just for Last of Us and Journey but it's going to be obsolete in a year so what's the point
  • Bibbo 2 years ago

    Last of Us. About time... Looking lovely.
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    Looks fun, but nothing in the gameplay that hasn't been done before. Just a cool artstyle.
  • munki83 2 years ago

    Wooo Last Of Us
  • X201 2 years ago

    @martinh Looks like they used all of the LSD whilst making it.
  • Bibbo 2 years ago

    Massive excitement? Crowd doesn't seem to think so.
  • ROMhack 2 years ago

    This looks interesting but the plot sounds uninspired. I'm hoping there's original content there for adults too. He specifically mentioned so but much of the emphasis was on children in his speech.
  • TheOnlyPaulV 2 years ago

    5ver says thats 3d compatible
  • Climhazzard 2 years ago

    This looks good.
  • jimmcbob 2 years ago

    Well that looks pretty. Like that weird thing that Rik Mayall used to narrate on Channel 4 with is pervy voice.
  • WadiumArcadium 2 years ago

    Haha, the clap comparison.
  • Caimbeul 2 years ago

    Pupeteer looks like it might be fun.
  • EMarkM 2 years ago

    Reminds me of the original Medievil...
  • WillyWongler 2 years ago

    @Widge - also, if you like melancholy piano music, check out "The Promise" from Secret Garden. ANYWAY GAMES
  • Kremlik 2 years ago

    it's Dynamite Heady! (go wiki it)
  • martinh 2 years ago

    I hope they ship this game with a free LSD tab.
  • WadiumArcadium 2 years ago

    This looks...chaotic.
  • stephenb 2 years ago

    @lukassheinzel1

    Yeah obviously there is that side of things too. That doesn't detract from the new IP we've seen today though.
  • Bibbo 2 years ago

    MOON BEAR KING? MAN BEAR PIG.
  • CountChocula 2 years ago

    @albo it seems sony spends more on a larger number of exclusives and MS spends more on co-op advertising deals for timed window exclusives instead
  • albo 2 years ago

    tough crowd..:/
  • Gimpy_Wonderland 2 years ago

    Art style reminds me somewhat of Stacking.
  • WillyWongler 2 years ago

    @Widge - Clair de Lune (with correct spelling this time)
  • beatleben 2 years ago

    When developers explain games plots, they sound so lame....
  • Widge 2 years ago

    Thanks muchly!
  • martinh 2 years ago

    Wait... he just skimmed over the MOON BEAR KING
  • WillyWongler 2 years ago

    Claire de lune was the piano piece
  • lukasheinzel1 2 years ago

    @stephenb

    Yeah like LBP Karting and All-Stars, and Paper Mario.
  • martinh 2 years ago

    @stephenb - they're happy to pamf them out on PSN too. Why I love my PS3.
  • SolidSinghs 2 years ago

    reminded me of Dynamite Headdy
  • Bibbo 2 years ago

    I wasn't expecting that name. Sony's Peter Molyneux?
  • albo 2 years ago

    god bless sony and their ip's. i relly need to consider switching over to ps3/ps4 because of this.
  • beatleben 2 years ago

    Hoping this is game of the Mexican Puppeteer by Tom Jones.....
  • CountChocula 2 years ago

    @enfilade i guess they worry more about piracy in the US

    This I probably will not like

    Rain looks cool
  • stephenb 2 years ago

    This is why I like Sony. They don't mind taking a chance on new IP
  • Gimpy_Wonderland 2 years ago

    Yes please. Hopefully they show some more of Unfinished Swan later on.
  • kerOtan 2 years ago

    that looked cool.........now The Last Guardian!

  • enfilade 2 years ago

    So is this like a prequel to Heavy Rain or what?

    Obviously a prequel to Heavy Rain. Next up, the pre-prequel, Light Rain.

    Another PSN game....
  • SolidSinghs 2 years ago

    this better make me wet.........
  • martinh 2 years ago

    They said 'new games', so there's no Last Guardian, TEMPER EXCITEMENT LEVELS. But oh my, Rain looks beautiful.
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    Yup, another new IP

  • FogHeart 2 years ago

    So this is how they'll finally do a 'Penumbra'-style horror game. Shame the theme is a bit naff.

    @Count Chocula But that doesn't restrict them from releasing in Europe on a Friday and in the US the following Tuesday ;)

    looks like sony is positioning playstation plus as a subscription model to get games. Dont buy games, subscribe and get 3 games a month instead....

    5th-ththth. I like this guy.
  • bodhi85uk 2 years ago

    Why cant these conferences just give us the information straight up? Im not interested in attempts at banter, or lame jokes between presenters or the audience.

    Its excruciating.

    PS+ for Vita... at long, long last.
  • Bibbo 2 years ago

    introu--increasing

    Woohoo RDR, I was thinking about buying that..

    games "of the highest quality" ....
  • ROMhack 2 years ago

    free stuff you have to pay for yay
  • beatleben 2 years ago

    I wish these demos would have people presenting them who know something about presenting... Sounds like a bored Admiral Ackbar "Oh know it's a trap..."
  • NotSoSlim 2 years ago

    People forgetting Sony showed remote play before Wii U was announced?

    Anyway options are always a good thing

    IT'S A TRAP!!!

    "It's a trap!"

    Why? Does Sackgirl have a dick?
  • Bibbo 2 years ago

    Is IT'S A TRAP the new saying for this conference?
  • X201 2 years ago

    Either Martin is transfixed with LBP - or the blog has stopped updating

    Yes yes, we know everyone copies from each other in this industry. Who cares.

  • lukasheinzel1 2 years ago

    @David_Spencer How does the move controller Sony put into your arse feel like?
  • martinh 2 years ago

    Wait... Found the princes.... THIS IS NINTENDO!
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    @Supermeatboy3D, it's called remote play.
  • ROMhack 2 years ago

    It looks like a pointless and shallow exercise in technology that is inevitably more concerned with marketing than making a well focused gaming experience.
  • Tekkirai 2 years ago

    Is Sony a Chinese company now? They rip off others like they are one.
  • Jonny5Alive7 2 years ago

    Looks clever but do many people actually own both?
  • smelly 2 years ago

    Do sony have any unique ideas of their own? Or do they just wait for nintendo to make those ideas for them?
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    @Supermeatboy3D, they did this with psp you mong.
  • Stevehd 2 years ago

    Looks interesting
  • ROMhack 2 years ago

    edit: now i see

    @Bibbo lol it's your fault. I'm going to be doing it to the cashiers at Morrisons if they dare stutter in my face now D:
  • Lazarene 2 years ago

    Nintendo are giggling behind Sony's back like little school girls
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    I wondered how long it would take them to copy the WiiU.

    The answer: Not very long at all.
  • Coughthulu 2 years ago

    So, from now on, not only will you have to buy Launch DLC to get the 'full experience', you'll also need a separate device. 'Great'.
  • ROMhack 2 years ago

    i'm not sure what the unique view he is talking about at all
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    Just show Ac3 footage!!
  • CountChocula 2 years ago

    Winter is Coming, PS Vita!
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    @greenthumb, worth noting the Psp did this with remote play.
  • Tekkirai 2 years ago

    So now it's the Wii U's turn

    Cross Control? Jumping on the Wii U control bandwagon? I would say meh but at least you can continue playing on the go with a vita..
  • Bibbo 2 years ago

    Sony stab at Wii U! YAY.
  • CrispyXUK 2 years ago

    cross control - lol, you just need a PS3 and a Vita
  • TenderChicken 2 years ago

    No laughs, awkward
  • enfilade 2 years ago

    Finally! The Vita as a controller - basically Wii U's modus operandi.
  • munki83 2 years ago

    This guy freaks me out get him off
  • greenthumb 2 years ago

    nintendo just called, they want their ideas back
  • ROMhack 2 years ago

    We need more launch DLC. I love paying extra money for a product i just paid for.
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    @Supermeatboy3D, funnily enough they didn't harp on it's bearded ass for more than an hour.

  • CountChocula 2 years ago

    his accent reminds me of the Starks in Game of Thrones

    @WillyWongler I knew you'd catch that one!
  • telboy007 2 years ago

    I love DLC at launch! ;)
  • Caimbeul 2 years ago

    too much. 12.99 would be a killer price point for the essentials
  • WillyWongler 2 years ago

    Would have like to hear more about Dust 514 too mumblyjoe

    @nick-h @X201 didn't you know Kwanzaa and Festivus are also really big days for game sales

    15.99 on amazon
  • mintgreen 2 years ago

    you can get all of those for 10 or less
  • enfilade 2 years ago

    @CountChocula Not if 'PlayStation Certified' devices are Sony/Ericsson tablets & phones.

    ple-play-pluh pluh pluih
  • jonbwfc 2 years ago

    Yeah, I think I can already buy Uncharted for less than 20 quid anyway...
  • Baleoce 2 years ago

    Nice rounding down there.
  • martinh 2 years ago

    because... Let's be honest, PLUS is doing all that for us.
  • Jonny5Alive7 2 years ago

    I bet that translates to 19.99 as well.
  • martinh 2 years ago

    Essentials... Hmm... Will that be 20?
  • mumblyjoe 2 years ago

    Wanna see more of Dust 514!

    this playstation mobile thing seems to be promoting their primary competition (tablets and smartphones)
  • Caimbeul 2 years ago

    i like buy it once play on all PS devices. Good job Sony
  • Neodog 2 years ago

    It has Alien Breed and Lemmings, so I am sold!
  • Bibbo 2 years ago

    They sure are going for the pay once play on all thing this time.
  • layleeloo 2 years ago

    Mobile? Sriously Sony you are goin down the wrong pth Waste of time. Sort your current systems outwith decent stuff first rather than branching out!
  • mintgreen 2 years ago

    really dont't like the way the Vita uses touch. Killzone looked pretty decent apart from the touch-screen melee kills
  • martinh 2 years ago

    These games HAVE TO be priced between .69p and 2 odd. LEMMINGS!!!!
  • telboy007 2 years ago

    Oh good god... is this Sony's smartglass?
  • munki83 2 years ago

    Bring back the N-Gage
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    @CountChocula, well aside from Waking mars, most games on iPad are hampered by shitty touch controls.
  • martinh 2 years ago

    @5lectro - think it was GENERIC TABLET (DEFINITELY NOT AN IPAD NO SIR)
  • Bibbo 2 years ago

    Hold your breath...
  • jonbwfc 2 years ago

    @countchocula - yes, frankly, a lot of them are. Compare EG for Vita and Let's Golf on iOS for example...
  • Lazarene 2 years ago

    @Supermeatboy3D bless 'em heheh
  • CountChocula 2 years ago

    if he says you can play it seamlessly on your tablet or smartphone, why do you need the vita?
  • 5lectro 2 years ago

    Was that a wierd-looking PS2 slim or a new PS3 I spotted?
  • SolidSinghs 2 years ago

    snack size can you eat them?
  • jonbwfc 2 years ago

    Playstation mobile. oh god no.
  • Lazarene 2 years ago

    @martinh agreed
  • CountChocula 2 years ago

    for those of you who bought one, are the vita games really that much better than android/ios tablet games?
  • shadow651 2 years ago

    COMPLETELY NEW, except sort of the same just with points
  • martinh 2 years ago

    Joking aside, there's a fair amount of investment into the Vita here. Should have really been on at E3.
  • telboy007 2 years ago

    Wow these gfx are awesomes, so realistic...
  • Lazarene 2 years ago

    Bit of a lame applause there
  • Daniel_Spencer 2 years ago

    Uh...Oh generic killzone game incoming.

  • chaywa 2 years ago

    Why are all these people playing the Vita indoors, have Sony missed the memo it's a portable console?
  • SolidSinghs 2 years ago

    WHAT IF YOU HAVE NO FIGURES?

    It certainly has quite a lot of charm to it.

    Wow, there are crocodiles? Looking good though; glad they haven't 'scaled' back on the game because it's on a handheld.
  • enfilade 2 years ago

    They should give us something which corresponds with (future) reality. No hollow promises, no defensive marketing babble.. just a glimpse of a new era of Playstation we've all been waiting for. This gen (and it's not just Sony) has been one of the biggest let downs in my three decades spanning gaming history. There's been too much talk, too much business, too much lies. It's time for a (self)critical reality check, Sony.
  • Bibbo 2 years ago

    How is the comments window displaying for people? Stream will almost be out of view from the comments. I can see the top comment only while watching the stream window.
  • enfilade 2 years ago

    Oh man, I'm nervous. If Sony don't make any significant mention of the Vita then it can't bode well for their plans with the console.

    Fingers crossed they'll make good use of this platform to shout its name from the rooftops...

    Sinking? They're never going to sink. We could have said that about Miscrosoft last gen and how the PS2 battered the xbox in all aspects other than power.

    "Though we can always pray for Last Guardian info."

    Don't hold your breath on that front. Sony have quietly dropped the trademark for the name...
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    Anyone know if there are any live streams of this conference by the way? Can't seem to find any...
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @doctor_fraud

    "Why is Sony the only one with a conference today ?"

    Microsoft only make big announcements at E3, and tend to leave new exclusives outside that window for being covered via their own channels. Nintendo don't really bother with European conventions, instead focussing on E3 and TGS.
  • dogmanstaruk 2 years ago

    @wattsn26 Microsoft seem to believe that the video game market = the usa.

    Not surprising since outside the US the 360 failed to make a massive impact (with the exception of the UK)
  • dogmanstaruk 2 years ago

    Mark my words.

    This, like this year's E3, will be a waste of time.
  • anyjunglein 2 years ago

    At least Sony showed up. Hopefully they drop the price of the Vita
  • ro-kurorai 2 years ago

    And don#t forget: TGS might reveal surprise announcements for Vita =)

    Really hope that some new Vita stuff is coming. Got my ticket and driving up to Cologne on Friday, so hopefully I'll have some Vita love to see :)

  • Lunastra78 2 years ago

    Soul Sacrifice. I want to see more of it.
  • sfp_noodle 2 years ago

    Apart from officially unveiling the PS3 slim, Sony should use this conference to prove that they actually give a shit about the Vita. Everyone knows what?s coming out for the PS3, so show a round-up trailer for it and focus on the Vita. Drop the memory card prices, drop the RRP of retail games and FFS announce some new software that isn't a port of a home console title. Block Ops Vita gameplay videos don't count, because that?s still a port, we want new and original games in addition to ports.
  • Spunkweazle 2 years ago

    Vita to be discontinued, please return yours to your nearest sony centre so it can be crushed
  • Acquiescence 2 years ago

  • Eldritch 2 years ago

    Well, if they release a PS3 in the same format as the PS2 slim and sell it for 100 quid, that would be something to actually write home about.
  • Zombie-Hamster 2 years ago

    @Snake_2011 I hope you're right, they've got to make up for E3 surely. If their "future of PlayStation" is just a thinner PS3, that for me is in epic fail territory...

Our live coverage has now ended. Here's what you missed: Updating...

17:34 By Tom Bramwell

Quick bit of housekeeping: we are *told* that the thing we have embedded on this page will show the conference. We're not sure about it though as it's a bit non-standard. If not, try gamescom.eu.playstation.com.

17:39 By Martin Robinson

Oh hello! We're inside Cologne's spartan Staatenhaus. This is really, really, real!

17:41 By Martin Robinson

I love the buzz that's humming around on a day like today. Plenty of rumours doing the rounds of what will be shown here.

17:42 By Martin Robinson

So, that Half-Life thing turned out to be a bit of hot air. I was hoping that EA would announce it as an Origin exclusive at its conference earlier on.

17:42 By Martin Robinson

Favourite rumour so far: Agent's going to re-emerge as a Vita game tonight.

17:43 By Martin Robinson

Nonsense, but loveable nonsense.

17:45 By Martin Robinson

Our friends at Sony tell us there are plenty of surprises in store tonight - we already know there are a couple of new game announcements inbound.

17:45 By Martin Robinson

What's super-amazing is that none of it has leaked.

17:47 By Martin Robinson

Couple of theories from me: Killzone on Vita will turn up again, and we'll also get to learn what Guerrilla's been up to.

17:48 By Martin Robinson

Er, that's Guerrilla, of course. Typing without a safety net here. THE THRILL OF THE LIVEBLOG.

17:51 By Martin Robinson

Tom P's predictions: 'They've cloned Mario Kart already, and they've cloned Super Smash Bros. What else can they steal from Nintendo?'

17:52 By Martin Robinson

Wes points out that now's a good a time as any to learn what Media Molecule's been up to.

17:52 By Martin Robinson

Also, just spotted Media Molecule's Alex Evans mooching around, so that's a pretty good shout.

17:54 By Martin Robinson

Any takers for a Gran Turismo appearance? I'd hit the roof if that happened, but Kaz is over in Asia for the GT Academy right now so it's unlikely.

17:54 By Tom Bramwell

Alex Evans is one of the guys on the post-conference Q&A panel, along with Shu Yoshida, Kellee Santiago (Journey) and Ian Dallas (Unfinished Swan). That starts at 7.45pm BST / 8.45pm CET, suggesting the conference itself will be around 90 minutes max.

17:56 By Tom Bramwell

Just under four minutes to go. If this is the only games industry conference in history to start on time, anyway.

17:56 By Martin Robinson

Tom B's asked me to write something about meat. I can't believe I've actually gone 20 minutes into a Gamescom liveblog and haven't mentioned meat.

17:57 By Martin Robinson

So, here's a thing: I ate a half metre sausage last night. For breakfast, our hotel serves ALL THE MEATS.

Gimpy_Wonderland says:

I know it's futile, but I'd love a new action/adventure game from SCE Cambridge; either MediEvil III, Primal 2, or something completely new would be fantastic.

17:59 By Martin Robinson

I reckon we'll see Sony Cambridge, but I'm becoming increasingly convinced it's going to be Killzone Vita. Would love to be wrong, though, and there's definitely some new IP that's going to break cover tonight.

17:59 By Martin Robinson

Meat.

18:01 By Martin Robinson

Couple of minutes to go. Excitement level rising. About to tear off own top and start hollering.

18:01 By Martin Robinson

LIGHTS DOWN. DUBSTEP UP. THIS IS GO.

18:02 By Martin Robinson

Showreel time, with Last of Us, GOW4, PlayStation Super Smash Brawl Melee Champions and plenty, plenty others.

18:04 By Martin Robinson

Move! Don't forget about Move, 'cos that's going to play a big part tonight. Even if you really don't want it to.

18:05 By Martin Robinson

Reel ends up with a shot of the Cologne skyline, and Jim 'The Hunk' Ryan steps up to the plate.

18:06 By Martin Robinson

We've gone straight for the lifestyle photography - used here to highlight the scope of PlayStation's player base.

18:07 By Martin Robinson

We're starting with the Vita, which is smart.

18:08 By Martin Robinson

LittleBigPlanet on Vita's the first to get a runthrough. Let's hope we see some of that Wii U baiting crossplay in there.

18:09 By Martin Robinson

This already has a release date, of course - it's coming out September 19th.

18:10 By Martin Robinson

Which we're reminded with as the trailer ends. There's also a Vita bundle coming out - the wi-fi model's being packaged in for 249.99 EUR.

18:11 By Martin Robinson

Oh hi. It's the character runthrough for Super Sony Smash Brawl All Stars.

18:12 By Martin Robinson

And now a runthrough of the crossplay features for PS3 and Vita.

18:12 By Martin Robinson

PlayStation All Stars will be the first game to make the most of Cross Buy

18:12 By Martin Robinson

Buy the Vita or PS3 version and you'll get the other format for free.

18:13 By Martin Robinson

We've seen this before with MotorStorm, but that doesn't stop it being really impressive when it comes to full-priced games.

18:13 By Martin Robinson

Ratchet & Clank and Sly will also utilise this feature.

18:14 By Martin Robinson

And now a look at AC3 Liberation. Some in-game stuff shows that it looks like a full-blooded Assassin's experience on the handheld.

18:15 By Martin Robinson

There are touch controls, of course, but they don't look too obtrusive - used in combat in one instance, and then to steer a boat.

18:15 By Martin Robinson

CoD!

18:15 By Martin Robinson

This'll be our first real look at Declassified. Its appearance was strangely muted at E3.

18:15 By Martin Robinson

Deathmatch and Kill Confirmed both in for the Vita version.

18:16 By Martin Robinson

As, predictably, are touch controls for various gadgets.

18:16 By Martin Robinson

I would like to see the game please!

18:16 By Martin Robinson

There's a bundle coming out for CoD too - this really could be give the Vita the boost it needs.

18:17 By Martin Robinson

FULL DISCLOSURE: I'm a big fan of the Vita. But you can't deny that its Christmas line-up is pretty healthy.

18:17 By Martin Robinson

PSOne Classics coming to the Vita on August 28th!

18:17 By Martin Robinson

Handheld FF7! MGS! Vagrant Story!

18:17 By Martin Robinson

And now it's Media Molecule's new IP. Well called, Wes.

18:17 By Martin Robinson

Alex Evans is taking to the stage.

18:18 By Martin Robinson

Quick sidenote - we'll be seeing CoD tomorrow, and will give you impressions during the day.

18:18 By Martin Robinson

It's a Vita game! Well, there's a Vita on stage.

18:19 By Martin Robinson

"It's in paper that we've taken our inspiration" says Evans.

crsmithy says:

August 28th 1995 has PS1 support too

18:19 By Martin Robinson

The game will make the most of the Vita's tactile elements.

18:19 By Martin Robinson

And it's called Tearaway.

18:19 By Martin Robinson

Iota's the star character. He's a little envelope.

18:20 By Martin Robinson

"The world is just an important character as Iota himself"

18:20 By Martin Robinson

Wow, this does look lovely. A DIY papercraft look.

L0cky says:

"Tom P's predictions: 'They've cloned Mario Kart already, and they've cloned Super Smash Bros. What else can they steal from Nintendo?'"

Paper Mario?

18:22 By Martin Robinson

Now that's how you use the rear touch panel - Rex is poking up through the world, his finger breaking through the paper land.

18:23 By Martin Robinson

I don't think it's the kind of thing that's going to sell a load of Vitas, but it certainly makes me happy to have one.

18:25 By Martin Robinson

Trailer runs through the various features. As you'd expect, it uses ALL of the Vita's capabilities.

18:25 By Tom Bramwell

Some of the fingers-through-the-back-of-the-paper-world stuff is ingenious. In the trailer now you can see Rex not just bumping Iota up on vibrating drum-heads, but tearing through three or four fingers and dragging them back and forth, creating ruptures in the scenery.

18:25 By Martin Robinson

Guerilla are up now.

18:26 By Martin Robinson

I SPELT THAT RIGHT FIRST TIME WITHOUT A SPELLCHECK.

18:26 By Tom Bramwell

No you didn't :-(

18:27 By Martin Robinson

It's on the Vita. And it's called Killzone Mercenary.

18:27 By Martin Robinson

A completely new game, and a first person shooter.

18:27 By Martin Robinson

A brief showing, sadly, but it's good to know that it's still alive and kicking.

18:28 By Martin Robinson

Well, after all that it's time for PlayStation Mobile. It's all about making your content mobile.

18:29 By Martin Robinson

A seamless experience that's anchored to your PSN ID. I was excited by NFS's Crosscompete earlier on, and I'm excited for this.

18:29 By Martin Robinson

And now let's have a look at the PlayStation Mobile games.

18:30 By Martin Robinson

They're coming to the Vita, which is more good news for the handheld.

18:30 By Martin Robinson

A maze game, a colourful 2D shooter - they look like mobile games, but that, of course, isn't a bad thing.

18:30 By Martin Robinson

Oh, and LEMMINGS WAS IN THERE.

18:31 By Martin Robinson

Again, it's got the Cross Buy philosophy.

18:31 By Martin Robinson

Interesting to see how this fits in with Minis, or if it replaces them completely.

18:31 By Martin Robinson

Asus and Wikipad will be two partners at launch.

18:32 By Martin Robinson

30 minutes in, and we're on to PS3.

18:32 By Martin Robinson

The line-up this Christmas includes Dust, LBP Karting and others. And plenty, plenty more from third parties.

18:33 By Martin Robinson

One of those is AC3

18:33 By Martin Robinson

PS3 Essentials - a new value brand that offers classics for 19.99 Euros. You'll get some ugly box art with those too.

18:33 By Martin Robinson

Cross controller for LBP 2, that allows you to play across PS3 and Vita.

18:34 By Martin Robinson

That's due for this year, and Pete Smith of Sony's out here to show it off.

18:35 By Martin Robinson

If you want to see more of Dust, come back to EG on August 22nd when we'll be bringing you beta impressions.

mumblyjoe says:

Wanna see more of Dust 514!

18:35 By Martin Robinson

With crossplay you can bring down the action to the Vita.

18:36 By Martin Robinson

This is reminiscent of Nintendoland - using the second screen gives you a unique view of the action.

18:36 By Martin Robinson

In this example, you use it to identify invisible obstacles in a maze.

18:37 By Martin Robinson

Using the touch controls on the Vita to move on-screen objects.

18:37 By Martin Robinson

Poor Pete Smith's jokes are sinking like a stone.

18:38 By Martin Robinson

I'd say that this is Tom P's prophecy being fulfilled again, but as impressive as this is it doesn't have the scope of Nintendoland.

18:39 By Martin Robinson

Using the Vita to scan the screen and make out objects.

18:39 By Martin Robinson

Jumping down a pipe, and now Sackboy's on the Vita.

18:40 By Martin Robinson

The gyro on the Vita's used to move a sponge and solve a puzzle. It's interesting, and I'd love to see what LBP2's community can make with this.

18:41 By Martin Robinson

We're moving on to PlayStation Plus.

18:41 By Martin Robinson

Red Dead Redemption is September's Game of the Month - and that gets a big cheer.

18:42 By Martin Robinson

'From September, we'll be increasing the cloud storage from 100MB to 1GB'

18:42 By Martin Robinson

Which should mean that you'll have enough room for all your saves.

18:43 By Martin Robinson

There's a 25 per cent discount inbound, and it's coming to Vita.

18:43 By Martin Robinson

FINALLY. Wonderbook's here.

18:43 By Martin Robinson

And so is Michael Denny to do the honours.

18:44 By Martin Robinson

"Our biggest new release of this holiday season," says Denny.

18:45 By Martin Robinson

Book of Spells, Sony's hoping, will be a big pull, diving into the world of Harry Potter.

18:46 By Tom Bramwell

I see this time they've gone for a canned trailer approach rather than a live stage demo as they did at E3, which, er, wasn't the most captivating showmanship of the trade show season, shall we say?

18:46 By Martin Robinson

Like most of you, I"m still not completely convinced by Wonderbook. Appreciate it's not for the likes of us, but I can't see many children going nuts for it.

18:47 By Martin Robinson

Anyway - if anything's going to shift it, Book of Spells will.

18:47 By Martin Robinson

A new IP for Wonderbook - Diggs Nightcrawler. It's got a pig in it.

18:47 By Martin Robinson

And an egg.

18:48 By Martin Robinson

And a caterpillar.

chaywa says:

Wonder what the 50 Shades of Grey version of Wonderbook would look like?

18:48 By Martin Robinson

Actually, I'd rather not imagine that right now thank you very much.

18:49 By Martin Robinson

WipEout for Wonderbook!

18:49 By Martin Robinson

Well, there's an image of a WipEout ship.

18:50 By Martin Robinson

Walking with Dinosaurs is now part of the Wonderbook experience. It's being developed by Supermassive - them of the slightly underwhelming recent Doctor Who game.

18:51 By Martin Robinson

Feed a triceratops! Dig up a bone!

18:51 By Martin Robinson

Disney's onboard too. Well, Sony's certainly putting a lot of effort into this.

18:52 By Martin Robinson

FIFA 13's Move capabilities now.

18:52 By Martin Robinson

You can shout at the ref on Kinect - can you prod him with Move?

18:53 By Martin Robinson

Dave's changed his shirt since the EA conference, fashion watchers. Slipping into some darker evening wear with a crisp black shirt.

18:54 By Martin Robinson

This looks very much like PES on the Wii - you can direct runs and passes with Move.

18:54 By Martin Robinson

if you've played PES on Wii, you'll know that this could actually be a Very Good Thing.

18:55 By Martin Robinson

Will be available at launch for FIFA 13 when it's out later this year.

18:55 By Martin Robinson

Three new games about to be announced. BRACE. BRACE.

18:55 By Martin Robinson

Until Dawn first up.

18:56 By Martin Robinson

This sort of leaked earlier - it's a horror game, and you'll play as seven different characters.

18:56 By Martin Robinson

Looks to have a TV mini-series vibe.

18:56 By Martin Robinson

And it's Supermassive on development duties. Yup, them of that Doctor Who game again.

18:57 By Martin Robinson

The Move looks like it's used to direct a torch. There's some sexiness too!

18:57 By Martin Robinson

There's gunplay, some Move-based puzzles and lots and lots of night.

18:58 By Martin Robinson

It smacks of schlocky horror, though that could be a good thing. Will this be a PSN game? I'm inclined to think so.

martinh says:

This actually looks stupid enough to be awesome.

18:58 By Martin Robinson

On to Japan Studio's new game now. EXCITE LEVEL RISING.

18:59 By Martin Robinson

First up is Rain - again, the title leaked.

18:59 By Martin Robinson

Snowflakes Are Dancing playing over a moody trailer.

19:00 By Martin Robinson

You're an invisible boy - conceptually, this reminds me a little of A Shadow's Tale on Wii.

19:00 By Martin Robinson

The world and your presence in it is revealed by the rain.

19:01 By Martin Robinson

Another new title! We're being proper spoilt.

19:01 By Martin Robinson

Gavin Moore from Japan Studio onstage to introduce Puppeteer.

19:02 By Martin Robinson

"The world of Puppeteer moves around you" says Moore. It's a fairytale game, with a surreal storyline.

19:03 By Martin Robinson

You're out to steal some magical scissors - and here's the game.

19:03 By Martin Robinson

The screen's framed by curtain, and you're moving across a stage that's filled with props.

19:04 By Martin Robinson

It's a platformer, essentially, but a really characterful one that has you brandishing those magica scissors to move around.

19:04 By Tom Bramwell

Puppeteer looks sweet! A sort of string theatre marionette pantomime adventure. Absolutely beautiful, too. Hurrah for new stuff!

19:06 By Martin Robinson

So that's the new IP out the way. Now onto some known quantities with Beyond and The Last of Us.

19:06 By Martin Robinson

We're going to finish with a look at the Last of Us. I think we've got a slightly more reserved crowd here than at E3, so let's hope for no boorish cheering of brutal kills.

19:07 By Martin Robinson

Here's something you probably know already: The Last of Us looks incredible.

19:07 By Martin Robinson

I believe it's new - a montage of fresh gameplay.

TazerFan says:

This is the same trailer from E3, correct?

19:08 By Martin Robinson

Jim's here to take us home.

19:08 By Martin Robinson

Carry me home in those trunk-like arms, Jim.

19:09 By Martin Robinson

"We envisage a world where everyone can be transfixed with the power of imagination." What a dreamboat.

19:09 By Martin Robinson

Here's CoD on Vita!

19:10 By Martin Robinson

And that's why we haven't seen it before! Textures look flat, the frame-rate a little choppy.

19:10 By Martin Robinson

Still, it's Call of Duty, and it's got 4v4 MP.

19:10 By Martin Robinson

And with that, the lights are up and the show comes to an end.

19:11 By Martin Robinson

That's a lot of new IP, and a fair amount of surprises.

19:11 By Martin Robinson

There's always TGS...

Tekkirai says:

No super slim then.

19:12 By Martin Robinson

Tearaway's the clear highlight, and the Vita's looking an awful lot healthier after all that.

19:12 By Martin Robinson

I'm the guy with his man boobs out who's dancing like a viking.

X201 says:

Martin we can still see the room.. wave at the camera

19:13 By Martin Robinson

We'll be bringing you updates on those new games over the next few days once the show starts proper tomorrow.

19:14 By Martin Robinson

And the lovely Johnny Minkley's going to take to the stage in a tick to present a live Q&A with some of Sony's top-brass and brightest creators. Catch it all on the livestream.
