Sony's TGS 2012 press conference Finished

Sony is set to hold its Tokyo Games Show 2012 press conference at 5am UK time - and we'll be there to live-blog the whole thing.

Eurogamer's delightfully bearded Martin Robinson and funny man Wesley Yin-Poole have travelled across time zones to report back from the future, as Sony lays out its latest round of hardware and software announcements.

We'll also be online here in the UK to help make sense of it all (provided our alarm clocks go off on time).

The PlayStation maker is the only one of the Big Three console companies with any kind of presence at TGS 2012. The stage is theirs for the taking - but what will Sony show?

Well, all signs point to a new super-slim PlayStation 3 being outed. There's been so many leaked photos of it we'd be shocked if it wasn't announced.

We're also hoping Sony still has more new software announcements up its sleeve, after its enjoyable Gamescom event revealed PS3 titles Rain and Puppeteer and gorgeous Vita game Tearaway (from LittleBigPlanet chaps Media Molecule). All three looked great.

Finally, it's been a while since we've heard about Beyond: Two Souls, the next project from Heavy Rain developer Quantic Dream. It's about time we learned more - so that's another to watch out for.

    Looking forward to The Last Guardian? Brace yourself for disappointment.


    Oh dear Sony!
  • [STARS]TyranT 2 years ago

    Oh don't even think about not releasing Yakuza 5 SEGA.... Seriously.
  • Phishfood 2 years ago

    Sony isn't in a financially good place right now. I didn't expect them to bring out anything big.
  • C0mmander 2 years ago

    @wattsn26 I mean they could have at least announce a Monster Hunter or bar that a Final Fantasy or some kind of well established JRPG or any solidified franchise I mean after all this is for Japenese audiences but they hardly even catered for them.
  • C0mmander 2 years ago

    That was disappointing! Does SQEnix have a seperate event i'm hoping they'll announce something for PS3 or Vita. I mean it was like here you go ps plus and mobile now we'll have many recaps and a few games no one in the west remotely cares about. Not to mention some of them are PSP ports! I'm just gonna pretend there's a good JRPG coming to my Vita soon as I play LBP Vita when I receive my pre-order until then WTH SCEJ, what happened to your passion for the industry?!
  • wattsn26 2 years ago

    *nothing outside of Soul Sacrifice in Japan
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    "nothing particularly compelling for a western audience for the Vita."

    Why break the habit of a lifetime, Sony...
  • wattsn26 2 years ago

    It seems that SCEA and SCEE are the gaming divisions of Sony that are providing the PS3 and PS Vita with 90% of the content. I'm disappointed in SCEJ and with people who keep acting like the Vita has no games at all..the Vita has a great lineup for 2012 and 2013, but nothing outside of Soul Sacrifice seemed to have any commercial appeal and to my knowledge it's SCEJ's job to get Japanese audiences interested in the Vita, and it seems theyre more interested in PSP/PS Vita crossplay.
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @daft_punk_909 Nope, the 3DS one is full-fat Monster Hunter 4.
  • BadBoyyy 2 years ago

    :(
  • homelessbaby 2 years ago

    We did this when we bought into the PSP. We created a hope-consuming monster.
  • Dragon246 2 years ago

    The most important event here was the farting man. Cant help but feel sony wasted the opportunity here.
  • 5ypher 2 years ago

    Well at least im more excited for Soul Sacrifice now, looking really good.
  • daft_punk_909 2 years ago

    @darkmorgado Oh. Doomed then!

    (i thought they just had a different version on the 3 DS/PSP)
  • homelessbaby 2 years ago

    @CaptainF Lol yeah, the hardware revision that also costs more
  • Marky264 2 years ago

    Well thats a Wrap. New PS3 which is great. But Overall very disappointing year for TGS.
  • Dreadaxe 2 years ago

    wave
  • Dragon246 2 years ago

    Where was MH? Vita is doomed for rest of the year japan.
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    :Daft_punk_909

    The next monster hunter is 3DS.
  • homelessbaby 2 years ago

    @CaptainF I wouldn't call a new colour a revision.
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @Kantaroumiya

    "Just wait for next year, when they announce the Vita being their Wii U controller."

    They've already done that, pretty much.
  • Dark_Era 2 years ago

    Gonna go catch that last 30min stint of sleep now.....
  • wattsn26 2 years ago

    Killzone Mercenary, Tearaway, Assassin's Creed Liberation, Call of Duty Black Ops Declassified,...

    Sony hasn't given up on the Vita, but SCEJ might have
  • daft_punk_909 2 years ago

    Whilst PSP is still popular, surely Sony want those people to buy Vita's?

    If the next Monster Hunter is PSP/Vita then what's thepoint of Vita?
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @Kantaroumiya

    Yes. It will be a pre-order exclusive for the Wonderbook.
  • homelessbaby 2 years ago

    The earth kingdom... has fallen.
  • BartsBlue 2 years ago

    " I can't help but feel that Sony's given up on the Vita." This. Sadly.
  • Kantaroumiya 2 years ago

    Just wait for next year, when they announce the Vita being their Wii U controller.
  • Marky264 2 years ago

    So thats it.... Great. Not happy :(
  • homelessbaby 2 years ago

    @5ypher How easy would it be for them to just translate it and put it on the Store? Gah!
  • homelessbaby 2 years ago

    @darkmorgado I have never felt such rage.
  • ambar_hitman 2 years ago

    Gods are eaten and Devils cry. Oh Japan!
  • DBT85 2 years ago

    @ambar_hitman the PSP is still wildly popular in Japan. Far more so than the rest of the world.
  • Bertie 2 years ago

    That Dreamcast comment is absolutely superb!
  • Kantaroumiya 2 years ago

    I wonder if God Eater 2 is coming with a Japan only collectible God Eating Cook Book.
  • ambar_hitman 2 years ago

    I have no idea why Sony is still releasing games for PSP. Release those sequels for Vita only you morons.
  • 5ypher 2 years ago

    Wondering how many of these titles will be localized
  • spamdangled 2 years ago

    @homelessbaby

    You're talking about a region where the bloody NES was only officially discontinued a couple of years ago.

    Cool I'm playing Devil Pooper
  • karlo87 2 years ago

    Yay God Eater
  • homelessbaby 2 years ago

    Why on earth are Sony still supporting the PSP? Surely people in Japan would buy Vitas if games stopped being released for PSPs?
  • Kantaroumiya 2 years ago

    Your eyes aren't ready yet, that's why.
  • Dreadaxe 2 years ago

  • 5ypher 2 years ago

  • Killdare 2 years ago

    I used to be worried my Vita would just be host to PS3 ports. Now I'm worried it's going to be host to PSP ports.

    @Dreadaxe The prices make it sound like it's effectively a price increase, or at least not a price drop. Weird.
  • MavSkipper 2 years ago

    I could use that online karaoke.
  • Dreadaxe 2 years ago

    @homelessbaby they've shown all 3.

    The live-blog says a 250 and 500gb model, but the article says 500 and 12?

    No way are the 250 and 500gb models SSDs. Just no.
  • Charlie_Miso 2 years ago

    No idea what's going out but heard the Australia shout out.

    We need Vita games, Versus 13 or 15! (not that lightning returns shit) and a glimpse of PS4 would be nice. Doubt we will get any of that though.

  • ObsessedGeorge 2 years ago

    Is there going to be a live feed?
  • Kaminari 2 years ago

    Sony would be suicidal to announce the PS4 at the same time as the rumoured PS3 SupaSlim. Really, this is Common Business Sense 101.
  • smenj 2 years ago

    If I could send the people at Eurogamer getting up at 5AM for this a bacon sandwich or something, I would, I assure you. I don't envy you guys.

    Is there any live video of the conference?

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

04:46 By Martin Robinson

HELLO TOKYO!

04:48 By Martin Robinson

We're in the Shinigawa Intercity Hall with THE WORST INTERNET CONNECTION IN THE WORLD. I thought everywhere in Tokyo was internet.

04:49 By Martin Robinson

Nice bit of casual racism to kickstart this morning's liveblog. Congrats if you've got up at 5am for this - treat yourself to a cup of tea and a pop tart.

04:50 By Martin Robinson

Looking forward to The Last Guardian? Brace yourself for disappointment.

04:50 By Martin Robinson

More likely - in fact, pretty much guaranteed - is the announcement of the new PS3 grill.

04:51 By Martin Robinson

Really hoping George Foreman staggers on stage to announce it.

04:52 By Martin Robinson

Also! Maybe some game announcements, and possibly a couple of Vita shaped surprises.

04:53 By Martin Robinson

Sony set the bar high with its Gamescom conference. Let's hope SCEJ got the memo about keeping things short and punchy and bringing the games. All the games.

04:55 By Martin Robinson

There's a lady on stage holding a clipboard. Is this the new PS3?

04:57 By Martin Robinson

There's going to be a photo taking session on the stage afterwards. What will we be taking photos of?

04:57 By Martin Robinson

I'm hoping it'll be a topless Jim Ryan.

04:59 By Martin Robinson

Oh, and a shout out to Jim Ryan's dad. I'm told he's a reader of the liveblogs. And that he's amused/disconcerted that I'm always going on about how damned sexy he is.

04:59 By Martin Robinson

What I'd love - what I'd really, really love - is an announcement of Final Fantasy 12 for Vita.

05:00 By Martin Robinson

While we're living in fantasy land, I may as well cross my fingers for a Gran Turismo announcement. And Gradius 6 on Vita.

05:04 By Martin Robinson

Weslol Yin Poole and his crack news team will also be bringing you all the news as it happens on the site. Should there be any, that is.

05:05 By Martin Robinson

It begins!

05:05 By Martin Robinson

Hiroshi Kawano, president of SCEJ takes to the stage.

05:05 By Martin Robinson

Would, basically.

05:06 By Martin Robinson

He's going to run us through services, and some messages for us. Super!

05:06 By Martin Robinson

Andrew House moonwalks on stage wearing a grass skirt. Definitely would.

05:07 By Martin Robinson

Balls, there's a live-feed of this, isn't there? I can't just make this stuff up.

05:07 By Martin Robinson

Straight in with the PS3 slim.

05:08 By Martin Robinson

There's a black model which we've likely all seen by now - and it's joined by a white model too. No George Foreman on hand, sadly.

05:08 By Martin Robinson

It is, for those watching at home, mighty small. Andrew House says it's half the weight/size of the original.

05:09 By Martin Robinson

The price remains the same - but there's more storage. 250 GB and 500 GB available. I believe it's an SSD, but that hasn't been confirmed just yet.

05:09 By Martin Robinson

Available October 4th. The black one, at least.

05:10 By Martin Robinson

299 EUROS for the 500 GB, 229 EUROS for the smaller model.

05:11 By Martin Robinson

Sorry for the slow updates - problems with the translation over here.

05:12 By Martin Robinson

PS Plus coming to Vita in November. No precise date just yet.

05:13 By Martin Robinson

49.99 USD for a year's subscription.

05:13 By Martin Robinson

Sony's looking to accelerate the connectivity of the PS3 and Vita in the future.

05:14 By Martin Robinson

PSN's grown since its launch in 2006 - available in 59 countries and 17 languages now.

05:15 By Martin Robinson

Gaikai - SCE will utilise the network to allow new cloud services, and delivering games through the system. It's important to address the latency - and Gaikai's the company to do that, says House.

05:16 By Martin Robinson

They're developing these services - and Sony says you can rely on them. Sadly we can't rely on them to announce anything concrete on Gaikai, it seems.

05:17 By Martin Robinson

I really like the look of the new PS3 slim - it's a definite improvement over the existing model, even if it's not quite as handsome as the original.

05:17 By Martin Robinson

The white model's coming out on October 22, with 250 GB. No word on if it's coming to the West, sadly.

05:18 By Martin Robinson

There's an Everybody's Golf pack coming. Again, don't expect that to make its way out of Japan.

05:19 By Martin Robinson

There's lots of exciting games aside from Everybody's Golf 6, says Hawano. Let's see some now!

05:19 By Martin Robinson

Puppeteer, Sports Champions 2, EDF Vita and plenty others.

05:20 By Martin Robinson

These are all games scheduled for before the end of the year.

05:21 By Martin Robinson

Also to look forward to - Yakuza 5, Call of Duty Black Ops 2. The translator's struggling to keep up, as am I.

05:22 By Martin Robinson

Plenty games, basically. Many of them are coming westward - though Tales of Xillia 2 and Yakuza 5 aren't two of them.

05:22 By Martin Robinson

A Rocksmith section! It's been out in the US for a while, but it's coming to Japan (and to the UK) later this year.

05:23 By Martin Robinson

Bertie's been having a crack at this recently, and it does what it sets out to do, apparently.

05:24 By Martin Robinson

There was a horrible moment during that showreel were Vic Viper turned up and I thought we were seeing a Gradius game. It was, of course, just from Zone of the Enders HD.

05:25 By Martin Robinson

Why am I waffling about what happened about five minutes ago? Because it's the Wonderbook section, which is traditionally the time to go take a dump/have a fag/make some tea during a Sony conference.

05:26 By Martin Robinson

I'm doing all three at once, which is raising some curious looks from everyone in attendance.

05:27 By Martin Robinson

And my straining seems to have broken the game - the plastic family looks confused/upset, and quickly leave the stage.

05:28 By Martin Robinson

Music Unlimited - he's talking about the Japanese service, which is available across PS3 and Vita and is free of charge for the first 30 days.

05:30 By Martin Robinson

Torne's a digital recorder - and it's Japan-only, I'm afraid. Lovely box, though.

05:31 By Martin Robinson

Nasne, again, is a Japan-only device. It does look nice though! Kind of like a little baby PS3.

05:32 By Martin Robinson

Ah, updates are being eaten by the internet, so apologies that it's slowing down a little. You're missing out on some PSP gold.

05:34 By Martin Robinson

We're back and with a vengeance - there's a PSP price cut in Japan, as well as a One Piece Pirate game. And Final Fantasy 3's coming out tomorrow. Wait, what? I thought that came out ages ago.

05:35 By Martin Robinson

PSP's are still big here - I've seen plenty on public transport the past few days, and literally no Vitas. Speaking of the Vita...

05:35 By Martin Robinson

We're going to get some announcements, says Kawano.

05:36 By Martin Robinson

22 titles were available at launch - there's now 65 available physically, with 91 available in total on the store.

05:37 By Martin Robinson

Project Diva F is absolutely HUGE over here - as Kawano says, it's the biggest hit on the Vita.

05:37 By Martin Robinson

Samurai & Dragons is a free-to-play game from Sega for the Vita. It's out already over here.

05:38 By Martin Robinson

Would love to see both of these come to the West. Is anyone listening? Are you still awake?

05:39 By Martin Robinson

PSOne Classics is a thing that exists on the Vita. Which Kawano's showing off now. Which I've also got in my bag. New things please!

05:40 By Martin Robinson

More than 600 games in the archive - 180,000 have been downloaded since the service went live last week.

05:44 By Martin Robinson

Regarding those 60 titles - I think that's on the Japanese store. We've got a much more paltry selection in Europe.

05:44 By Martin Robinson

600 titles, even.

05:45 By Martin Robinson

"I have so far discussed what the Vita's done since the start - now on to news to you"

05:45 By Martin Robinson

Cosmic Red and Sapphire Blue Vita colours inbound, available in November.

05:46 By Martin Robinson

They'll be available from November 15 in Japan. Red one pleuse.

05:47 By Martin Robinson

I'm the bearded guy in the second row waving like a moron. HELLO!

homelessbaby says:

Because what people want is a different colour to not buy.

05:48 By Martin Robinson

Comics on the Vita - they look mighty on the OLED, as One Piece Pirate proves.

05:49 By Martin Robinson

Will we see this in the UK so we can read the Beano on the go? I don't know!

05:50 By Martin Robinson

The Reader Store, it's called, and it's available from October. 3000 comics available at launch.

05:50 By Martin Robinson

Don't go back to sleep just yet - here's some new games for Vita.

05:51 By Martin Robinson

PSO Online, Soul Sacrifice, PS Beat Me Do and something with a cardboard box.

05:51 By Martin Robinson

Nothing new new new there, though - a run-through of the line-up we already knew existed.

05:52 By Martin Robinson

Black Ops Declassified makes a slightly incongruous appearance. I've said it before, but I may as well say it again - it doesn't look too hot.

05:52 By Martin Robinson

How much would you pay me to rush the stage and lick his cheeks?

05:53 By Martin Robinson

Declassified BLOPS - we'll be getting a runthrough in a second, so you can see it running first hand.

05:54 By Martin Robinson

It's Keiji Inafune! Say something controversial, Keiji - I'm in danger of dozing off here.

05:54 By Martin Robinson

He's saying that the Japanese games industry's doomed, and that everyone in the room will be out of a job by next summer.

05:55 By Martin Robinson

He says we won't even be able to trade in our Vitas for some hot soup when we're all homeless on the streets.

05:55 By Martin Robinson

Actually, none of that's true - he's just saying the game's now coming out in Spring next year.

05:55 By Martin Robinson

There'll be a demo this Christmas.

05:56 By Martin Robinson

And here's a co-op video for you all.

05:57 By Martin Robinson

A living book opens up to reveal some third party action. It's a third person adventure - someone at Sony's Japan Studio last told me said it's a lot like Dragon Ball with its very OTT action.

05:58 By Martin Robinson

Though I'm still lazily pinning it down as a Dark Souls/Monster Hunter mash-up. With OTT action.

05:59 By Martin Robinson

"We hope that this will be a major masterpiece" says Kawano.

05:59 By Martin Robinson

A chap from Marvellous AQL takes to the stage for an unannounced game.

06:00 By Martin Robinson

Make that three new games - Valhalla Knights 3 is the first, out next year.

06:01 By Martin Robinson

It started off as a PSP game - and now it's shifted over to the Vita. A back to basics approach for the series. I'm not going to pretend I know what those basics are.

06:02 By Martin Robinson

A trio of screenshots show off what the Vita's done for Valhalla Knights. Made it more pervy, it seems from one of those shots.

06:02 By Martin Robinson

Yes he did.

Avaloner says:

Did he just mention boobs?

06:02 By Martin Robinson

Shinovi Versus next - an all-new game, coming out on February 28th next year.

06:03 By Martin Robinson

Do you remember the time that Sony came on stage and announced an awesome Vita game from one of its biggest studios? Right now I'm struggling to.

06:04 By Martin Robinson

Oboromuramasa's up next - again it's got its roots in the PSP.

06:04 By Martin Robinson

This one's out 28th March next year.

06:05 By Martin Robinson

I can get up on stage and announce it, if you want.

Marky264 says:

Martin where is Gran Turismo because I can't even Whiff and decent titles yet :/ Come on Kaz get on Stage!

06:05 By Martin Robinson

"Why is he holding the mic like that" says Wes. I think he's going to burst into song.

06:05 By Martin Robinson

Koei are next up to thrill us.

06:06 By Martin Robinson

Toukiden's the game, from the Dynasty Warriors team.

06:06 By Martin Robinson

It's got a monster in it.

06:07 By Martin Robinson

I just dropped my dongle, which has provided the most exciting moment of the show so far. Sorry you weren't here to witness it.

06:08 By Martin Robinson

Anyway, in the meantime Toukiden's been announced, which is a cross platform game between Vita and PSP. It's a whole new project.

06:09 By Martin Robinson

Bandai Namco on stage now! Apparently Namco sounds a bit like a very rude word in Japanese, so Simon Parkin told me once.

06:10 By Martin Robinson

I'm hoping this too.

CaptainF says:

I hope Rodan eats Mark Robinson on his flight home.

06:11 By Martin Robinson

All the points to whoever can remind me what word it is.

06:12 By Martin Robinson

Anyway, Rude Word Bandai have taken to the stage to announce a new Gundam game. Even the Japanese press seem unimpressed.

06:12 By Martin Robinson

Destruction's the theme for this one, which is outside what typical Gundam games do.

06:13 By Martin Robinson

I streaked, basically. Epic's not quite the word.

CaptainF says:

I bet that was the most epic shit ever, and we couldn't see it.

06:14 By Martin Robinson

It was a Gundam game - third person action with gunplay and big swords. No idea why the livestream turned away.

Dreadaxe says:

what was the point of that, what did you see that we couldn't.

seriously why turn the cameras away from the screen.

06:14 By Martin Robinson

Another Namco game's due up - Yusuke Tomizawa's on stage to announce it.

06:15 By Martin Robinson

God Eater 2's the game, developed by Project G.E. Again, it's a PSP and Vita game.

06:15 By Martin Robinson

Big swords and more third party Monster Hunter-esque action - the Vita version looks more handsome than the PSP one, unsurprisingly.

06:17 By Martin Robinson

Everybody in the audience watching the screen is now bleeding profusely from their eye sockets. Be grateful you were saved.

Kantaroumiya says:

Your eyes aren't ready yet, that's why.

06:18 By Martin Robinson

The Vita uses twin sticks for cameras, and has a bit more pretty. The man next to me just did a bit of fart. More as it happens.

06:19 By Martin Robinson

2013 launch for God Eater 2 - nothing more than that right now.

CaptainF says:

I ate a god once. It tasted like a Dreamcast.

06:21 By Martin Robinson

AKB 1/153 is coming this year, as are Fate games, EDF and a handful more. I can't help but feel that Sony's given up on the Vita.

06:24 By Martin Robinson

There'll be hands-on with Soul Sacrifice at the show, and 26 other Vita games.

wattsn26 says:

Killzone Mercenary, Tearaway, Assassin's Creed Liberation, Call of Duty Black Ops Declassified,...

Sony hasn't given up on the Vita, but SCEJ might have

06:26 By Martin Robinson

There's an ARG coming out to accompany TGS - it's a mystery solving game, and it's irrelevant to all of you. But if you feel like you're missing out it's also available, in some form, on the internet.

06:27 By Martin Robinson

Kawano's wrapping up what's been a very underwhelming show.

06:28 By Martin Robinson

No FFX HD news, and nothing particularly compelling for a western audience for the Vita. I'm going to go and have a little cry in the corner.

06:28 By Martin Robinson

Thanks! (And sorry). But mostly thanks!
