Live: PlayStation 4 US launch event Finished

UPDATE: And we're done. A new Uncharted for PS4, Destiny beta coming first to PlayStation and a new look at The Last of Us DLC. See it all as it unfolded - lengthy ad breaks and all - here.

ORIGINAL STORY: Happy PlayStation 4 launch eve! Well, that's if you're in the US, as we're not getting Sony's new console until a little later in November. And I hope you lovely Americans will be equally happy for us when our time comes in Europe.

The US is also getting a special launch event that promises news of new PlayStation 4 games. Will the catweagle return in The Last Guardian? Will we learn about the future of the Uncharted series? Is it too soon to hope for news of Knack 2?

It all kicks off at an ungodly hour, but if you're as excited as us you can join us live from 4am GMT to watch the live stream, read through our babbling commentary and post your own reactions.

    EG probably wont mention this, maybe because it doesnt piss gasoline on the flamewars or maybe because its no big deal. But, nevertheless:

    I'm gonna follow suit and congratulate all the new PS4 owners out there in America or with an American pre-order :-). You must be having a pretty sweet day.
    Now I'll just wait for the X1.
    One love, dudes!
  • seeyoshirun 9 months ago

  • Pwnsweet 9 months ago

    Everyone in North America - fixed
  • Scimarad 9 months ago

    Personally I'm counting down until I can finally play X sodding Rebirth! C'mon Steam/Egosoft.
  • Pwnsweet 9 months ago

  • thesnowman 9 months ago

    Cant believe I stayed up for this pish.
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    Why didn't that countdown end with Crash Bandicoot.
    WHY
  • Spong 9 months ago

    Those seconds are too slow.
  • Huxen 9 months ago

    Well the good thing is you can have both!
  • joeymoto108 9 months ago

    COUNTDOWN
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    I like graphics as well as gameplay... want to push limits not sit and play games no better then on my S4
  • Pwnsweet 9 months ago

    I don't remember anything like this for the Wii U launch in North America...
  • modula 9 months ago

    Oh god, painfully nerdy guy. It's as excruciating as watching an interview with Tarantino?
  • Huxen 9 months ago

    Indie games are not rubbish. well some of them are, but some of the best games I have played have been Indie games.
  • Spong 9 months ago

    Oh look, an ad showing us stuff we've already seen.
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    Yes.. next gen console with atari games.... no thanks LOL
  • -cerberus- 9 months ago

    Would like to see more of The Order: 1886 :(
  • 8bitMofo 9 months ago

    He does have to deal with a fair bit of humiliation, however
  • Fingerprints 9 months ago

    Se he is first in line he is weird!! I work in live tele occasionally and I hate it so much!!
  • Gedeye 9 months ago

    Poor guy has been queuing so long, he's not read the Knack reviews.
  • Pwnsweet 9 months ago

    I stopped playing Mass Effect 2 for this?
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    4 minutes.
    Time for Crash and zone of the enders
  • Spong 9 months ago

    Stream's fine for me. Using Opera.
  • DBLue 9 months ago

    "Indie rubbish"? Some of these games are more interesting than anything else in the PS4's launch line-up.
  • joeymoto108 9 months ago

    I can feel your Asperger's.
  • Huxen 9 months ago

    What a stupid question to ask! "Do you work?" way to insult your fans...
  • Scimarad 9 months ago

    Indy rubbish?
  • Fingerprints 9 months ago

    Whoa Indy rubbish??
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    Anyone else concerned how much emphesis is being put on all the Indy rubbish ??
  • Scimarad 9 months ago

    They did? Oh I sort of missed that. Apologies in that case!

    Still, past experience should say nothing significant is going to happen.
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    Fine for me.
  • Pwnsweet 9 months ago

    surely my 100mbit connection is enough to stream this stupid video at 360p?
  • Pwnsweet 9 months ago

    is the stream screwing up for everyone else or just me?
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    Chrome? hahaha NO
  • JamieR 9 months ago

    People still use Firefox? Dude get Chrome.
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    We wouldn't have been expecting anything if Sony hadn't promised big news.
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    Scimarad, Geoff and Kojima hyped it up not us
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    Sorry Ad Block Plus
  • Pwnsweet 9 months ago

    the stream repeats itself all the time...
  • Gedeye 9 months ago

    I think that's it for 'reveals'. Surely all there will be now is the guy first in the queue being handed his PS4.
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    Anyone watching Ustream with Firefox install No Ads pro ;)
  • speed182 9 months ago

    Its like being up watching the Royal Rumble waiting for a big name to return.

    Never happens!
  • Scimarad 9 months ago

    Seriously, was anybody really expecting anything other than coverage of the launch? I think you need to have realistic expectations.

    I'm honestly even surprised at that mention of Uncharted.
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    I'm a PS+ member already but still... on a 120mb connection i'd like to download faster from PSN then it does.
  • JamieR 9 months ago

    I want Octodad for that theme song alone. And maybe they will show their VR headset, not ruleing that out even though it's very unlikely.
  • Fingerprints 9 months ago

    True yes pool ;-)
  • Pwnsweet 9 months ago

    omg the stream is so broken
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    It is certainly telling that Octodad is the best thing I've seen all night.
  • DSR3 9 months ago

    Something big is coming, I hope...
  • Huxen 9 months ago

    I didn't let myself get sucked in as badly as I did with PS3 this time.
  • Pwnsweet 9 months ago

    urggh ustream
  • joeymoto108 9 months ago

    Octodad looks naff.
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    I just hope I get mine on the 29th and it works LOL

    Since ps4 requires PS+ are we guaranteed optimal download speeds from servers? No its a free service excuse anymore
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    Wowzer, Octodad again.
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    Ocotdad makes everything better
  • Spong 9 months ago

    And it's poll not pole.
  • Spong 9 months ago

    No.
  • Fingerprints 9 months ago

    Quick pole anyone reckon there will be a big surprise?
  • JamieR 9 months ago

    I think them winning tweets were picked in a hurry lol
  • speed182 9 months ago

    Classic snake was MGS running on Xbox one... sorry.
  • GuuR 9 months ago

    PS4 reveal back in february was way more interesting than this... sadly
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    I'm never getting hyped for anything ever again
  • Fingerprints 9 months ago

    I am surprised Sony isn't opening up the check book for mgsv - although ms does have deeper pockets
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    MGS5 honestly just looks like all the worst things about MGS4 but even more of it.
  • joeymoto108 9 months ago

    Is that it, Kojima? lol
  • Scimarad 9 months ago

    The power of the Playstation! The first one!
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    So did I! Still think graphically it was way of head of many games for years... and the little head movements and gear change touches too!
  • -cerberus- 9 months ago

    Sweet 32-bit gfx.
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    This better not be the "mind blowing announcement"
  • GuuR 9 months ago

    Mine was Disgaea on ps2. Awesome game that is
  • Huxen 9 months ago

    The expensive prelude...
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    MGS remake???
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    LOL my 1st ps memory was Porsche Challenge

    HAHAHA
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    That was MGS2 subtitled as MGS there wasn't it?
  • joeymoto108 9 months ago

    Why am I up at this ungodly hour?
  • speed182 9 months ago

    Eye Toy: Great window cleaning sim!
  • dadrester 9 months ago

    The fact last guardian was mentioned, to me indicates we might see something.
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    I doubt even Criss Angel knows the answer to that.
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    I used my eye toy for a day or so... and maybe once at xmas for a giggle.....

    Will wait for a need for the cam.
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    Thanks martin... Will keep a eye for when its ready to DL lol
  • Fingerprints 9 months ago

    I really wanna see the differance between kinetic and Playstation camera
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    So next question. Is it worth getting the camera?
  • -cerberus- 9 months ago

    This is not a launch event. This is an ad event, with a console launch.
  • DSR3 9 months ago

    Hope we get a big announcement after MGS5.
  • GuuR 9 months ago

    >_> need Dead Space on PS4
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    Why am I even still here?
  • Fingerprints 9 months ago

    As an American southern abstraction of pretty who knows
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    I have my beta code... did he say it'd be on ps3 too
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    40 minutes and all we've got is Uncharted :(
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    Actually found that trailer to be a little underwhelming.
  • speed182 9 months ago

    NEED.
  • Spong 9 months ago

    Don't you mean purdy?
  • Huxen 9 months ago

    Will Destiny have couch co-op?
  • GuuR 9 months ago

    Close combat looked like Ninja Gaiden-ish style
  • JamieR 9 months ago

    You can tell Destiny is made by the makers of Halo.
  • Fingerprints 9 months ago

    Pruddy
  • Scimarad 9 months ago

    @Martin Robinson

    Sounds good. And don't forget to mention the camera angles!
  • Spong 9 months ago

    Look at Geoff Keighley's cold, dead eyes.
  • Fingerprints 9 months ago

    Yeah let Shu 'your boss' win!
  • GuuR 9 months ago

    Destiny!!
  • Fingerprints 9 months ago

    LAST GUARDIAN
  • Scimarad 9 months ago

    A Need for Speed review would be nice, thank you very much.
  • Huxen 9 months ago

    I remember thinking (as a child) that I could buy a Net Yaroze and just start making games straight away, I didn't even own a PC then.
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    Have battlefield 4 on ps3 so will egt the DD for 9.99

    Pre-ordered Lego Marvel Super Heroes and Fifa 14

    Canceled Kilzone as its had pretty poor reviews
  • Gedeye 9 months ago

    I'll be getting KZ, AC, LMSH, camera, additional controller, Resogun, Contrast, Tiny Brains, Sound Shapes & flower.
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    Killzone, Resogun and AC4.

    and david the actual hardware was fixed
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    Karlo do you have a url at all please?
  • GuuR 9 months ago

    Killzone for me
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    My playstation memory was playing silent hill at my friends house in the dark. He had to turn it off we got so scared.
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    i'm not talking about the wobbling fix lol
  • Spong 9 months ago

    Pirate's Creed.
  • DSR3 9 months ago

    Kotaku PS4 was fixed as well
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    I'm not to worried about the hardware failures. There will always be some and I can always get it replaced.
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    IGN fixed their PS4 now, they've put an article up on how to do it
  • david'djhicks'hicks 9 months ago

    Awaiting to see how many people take home and report their ps4's not working

    Paid for my preorder.... hopefully its a bug in the 1.50 update and not hardware related as IGN suggest.
  • speed182 9 months ago

    My playstation memory: Thinking
    when I was a kid with the PS1 if you completed a game a fiver came out of the memory card slot... never did!
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    If I was offered the super Killzone bundle, I would have had to go for it. But sadly I missed out.
  • Fingerprints 9 months ago

    The fans...... I wonder if there is a girl in that line? Just a thought
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    #playstationmemories #cringe
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    STOP MENTIONING CRASH OMG I'M GOING TO HAVE A BREAKDOWN
  • Huxen 9 months ago

    I was going for Watch_Dogs originally but had to settle for Killzone, thankfully in a bundle with a 'free' controller.
  • Fingerprints 9 months ago

    @kario87 yep where is my vr
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    Come on Sony R&D, get your VR out
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    I don't think there's anything I'd be buying with a PS4 if I were buying one right now. I'd be content with the PS+ offerings, there isn't really much else of worth apart from maybe Killzone.
  • sayyas 9 months ago

    uncharted set in the old pirate days
  • Huxen 9 months ago

    Actually with the selection of paid games on offer at the moment and the free games available and PS+ it's not completely mad to buy a PS4 with no games.
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    Just boring old water for me.
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    Tea for me, good ole twinings
  • Fingerprints 9 months ago

    Lol who knows! I have a big Christmas job so it can be a new year gift
  • -cerberus- 9 months ago

    Having a cup of coffee. With scotch.
  • Scimarad 9 months ago

    @Fingerprints

    Irrational hate is all part of the Internet experience.

    Also, impatience and unrealistically high expectations that this going to be anything more than 96% launch coverage and 4% new announcements.

    I'm only here because I had to get up for work, anyway!
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    Yeah. I only just managed to put the money together. I can't afford any games though. Are they important?
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    Gaf is down, all their predictions don't look like they're coming true lol
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    You mean to say you're not here to watch ads for Criss Angel's new show??
  • Fingerprints 9 months ago

    Jealous of that $500 I gotta make rent! :-)
  • -cerberus- 9 months ago

    On with the show, damn it!
  • xFiReStOrMx 9 months ago

    Come on with these bloody ads!!!
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    Jealousy perhaps?
  • Huxen 9 months ago

    They should have set this in a cramped teenagers bedroom with Andrew House and Jack Tretton loitering in the doorway.
  • Fingerprints 9 months ago

    Is it just me who irrationally hates these guys in line?
  • DSR3 9 months ago

    Infamous is my most anticipated PS4 game so far.

    Wait, March? Damn
  • Scimarad 9 months ago

    "Eat hot neon, muthahumpers!!"
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    Good to have a release date!
  • -cerberus- 9 months ago

    Heart Shaped Box
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    20 minutes and we've only had 2 20 second teasers :(
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    Enough of the fluff!
  • JamieR 9 months ago

    I hope they show us more of The Order.
  • speed182 9 months ago

    Octodad is the shiznit!

    Loved it at the Expo
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    Octodad getting a lot more screen-time than I'd expect.
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    Octodad, GotY 2014
  • Scimarad 9 months ago

    I've got to say, I like TLOU more than I liked UC3 but I don't want to particularly see a sequel to it. They pretty much told a complete story and there isn't much point in returning to it.

    I would like to see them do something new but I'm pretty excited for a PS4 Uncharted.
  • -cerberus- 9 months ago

    #Huxen: "Uncharted: Origins" :D
  • DSR3 9 months ago

    ND can do no wrong in my eyes.
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    I've got mixed feelings about the Uncharted announcement. It will always be amazing, but it doesn't muster huge excitement in me.

    JamieR's idea is great though. That I would be excited for.
  • Huxen 9 months ago

    I expect 'Uncharted' will get a name or a number later, It's probably a fair way off and was brought out this early for hype.
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    I'm actually excited for driveclub, looks fun
  • Spong 9 months ago

    Stop hoping for Kojima & Silent Hill. The series has taken enough of a kicking as it is.
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    I'd much rather see the Uncharted team do something new while the TLoU team makes a full-fledged sequel.
  • NoTheMama 9 months ago

    Cmon new Silent Hill from Kojima!
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    Naughty Dog are now two teams now, so I'd expect a new IP after TLoU team wraps up DLC
  • JamieR 9 months ago

    Maybe you will play during the days of sir Francis drake.
  • Scimarad 9 months ago

    I think what you meant to say was "Awesome! More Uncharted!!"
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    Was that also unnumbered? Seems to be in fashion at the moment.
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    crash bandicoot naughty dog shot down
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    Good shout, Martin.
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    ugh more Uncharted.
  • DSR3 9 months ago

    Holy moly
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    Yep, I stayed up 4 hours past my bedtime to see Ellie find a carousel.
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    worth it davey? lol
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    You might be right, Martin. If it was just dlc I would expect Neil to be there.
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    Yesss, gimme tlou news.
  • mathewjones1 9 months ago

    i cant see it. how i get it on here?
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    was it ever confirmed if jack didn't kill someone with that mic?
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    Gotta get that 1080p ghostz
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    Don't steal my lines, Martin.
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    Would love to know what that other hardware design was. Was it just less RAM?
  • Spong 9 months ago

    An hour of Geoff Keighley? FFS.
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    The first game I'll be playing on my new console is... Call of Duty. Really?
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    even jack's hyping
  • Huxen 9 months ago

    first people in the world?
  • DSR3 9 months ago

    That stage...
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    I'm basically only here for the TLoU DLC announcement.
  • karlo87 9 months ago

  • Huxen 9 months ago

    Space game revival? Does anyone remember Darklight Conflict? Or Perfect Assassin?!
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    Tangfastics are a bit much for this ungodly hour.
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

  • karlo87 9 months ago

    Anyone want some haribo? Tangfastics yo
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    I think we will only see TLOU dlc from ND.
  • Clemence_Portis 9 months ago

    His Doritos crusted hands no less.
  • kdavey2004 9 months ago

    How underwhelming would an Uncharted 4 announcement be? Hopefully something properly new from that team.
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    Octodad does look fun.
  • kingpin3000 9 months ago

    You'd best be joking about Team Ico Martin.

    excellent trolling with last guardian that would be unacceptable

    Had no intention of staying up for this but yet here I am. Doubt there's even going to be anything particularly worth having stayed up for.

    If there is any good in this world. Please let that Crash Bandicoot rumour be true.

    Actually, anyone know if the ustream works on ps3? I fancy watching this on my TV
  • dadrester 9 months ago

    Why on earth am I still up?... Kojima better conga dance onto stage with Fumito Ueda, Dan Houser, Gable Newell and Yu Suzuki with exclusives or games with the number 3 at the end, or I won't be happy.
  • iainculverhouse 9 months ago

    So glad it's not just me staying up to cover this madness
  • tafkap 9 months ago

    I'm staying up as I'm off work today as luck would have it! I hope for a Koudelka sequel, but I'll settle for Anna Kournikova Tennis 2.

    Off to bed, but want to wake up to news of Demon Soul's 2, The Last Guardian, Agent, Parappa & a 3D LBP. A trailer for The Order 1886 too please.
  • chucklepie 9 months ago

    I ordered a day one today. Yes today. But i had to buy 6 games and a second controller. Don't even ask how much ;-)

    But i will be selling FIFA and knack shrink wrapped to recoup some semblance of bank balance.

    Kojima presents Silent Hill, i have a feeling!
  • estarriol 9 months ago

    Dark Souls is Demon's Souls 2 as much as Bioshock was System Shock 3. The Demon's Souls story and atmosphere were very special and many fans of both games would be stoked to see a sequel. Yes, in addition to Dark Souls 2.
  • J_Maddison 9 months ago

    Dark Souls was technically Demon's Souls 2....People do realise this right??

  • callum9999 9 months ago

    @Marsun Because contrary to many people thinking it should, the world does not revolve around the UK.

    Sony COULD launch in the UK at the same time if they wanted to, but clearly deemed the extra cost of ramping up production to not be worth it.
  • Marsun 9 months ago

    While its nice to see the new games shown off that the PS4 has to offer at launch in one place.

    Whats the excuse for PS4 releasing a full 2 weeks ahead of the UK in the US but somehow MS can manage to release simutaneously its xbox one console in both countries on the 22nd?..

    A new Silent Scope please!
  • lollercopter 9 months ago

    I'm only looking out for one thing- Banderas. This now has more hype than HL3 and Last Guardian combined...
  • karlo87 9 months ago

    Demon's Souls 2 won't be announce until Dark Souls 2 has been out for a while.
    That would be a clusterfuck
  • estarriol 9 months ago

    There's only three words I want to hear - "Demon's Souls 2"

    A nice big space epic to rival Mass Effect 1 please. Also, Last Guardian, Agent and something completely unexpected but lovely.

    @mathieusailtothemoon This is certainly a great reason to get consoles at a later date!

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

03:46 By Martin Robinson

*rubs eyes* Goooooood morning. And super work if you're still up.

03:47 By Martin Robinson

I've got a pot of coffee and am decked in my hottest nightwear - I'm PUMPED.

03:48 By Martin Robinson

I just checked in on my Animal Crossing town (I don't think I've ever been there this early in the morning). It's fair to say that those guys don't give a toss about what's going in New York right now.

03:51 By Martin Robinson

Man, you're going to be leaving us very early on.

bmx19 says:

instantly leaving if I see geoff keeley he is absolute garbage

03:51 By Martin Robinson

I spent my first evening with a PS4 last night. It was well romantic.

03:52 By Martin Robinson

Killzone's better than I anticipated, Resogun's fun and Knack... Well, Knack is all a bit OMG WTF it's 2013 dudes what are you doing?

03:53 By Martin Robinson

Rumour has it that Team Ico has been taken off The Last Guardian and is now on Knack 2 - maybe we'll see that tonight?

03:53 By Martin Robinson

*salutes*

kdavey2004 says:

Had no intention of staying up for this but yet here I am. Doubt there's even going to be anything particularly worth having stayed up for.

03:53 By Martin Robinson

*high fives*

kingpin3000 says:

Late night walk complete. Now time to get excited.

03:54 By Martin Robinson

*waves enthusiastically*

DSR3 says:

Got four hours sleep. Better than none.

03:54 By Martin Robinson

4AM CREW ASSEMBLE.

03:55 By Martin Robinson

A shout out to Wes as well, who's here with us to turn this into NEWS.

03:56 By Martin Robinson

There will be news. I hope. Rumour that there'll be a revival of an old space franchise. Colony Wars? That'd be odd.

03:57 By Martin Robinson

More likely we'll see what Naughty Dog's Uncharted team is working on. What could it be?

03:57 By Martin Robinson

I am. I think. I hope.

kingpin3000 says:

You'd best be joking about Team Ico Martin.

03:57 By Martin Robinson

We're in Geoff Keighley's 'capable hands' now. God help us all.

03:59 By Martin Robinson

What else is left to be announced? I think we know what most of Sony's Worldwide Studios are working on.

04:00 By Martin Robinson

Third-party wise there's going to be an MGS5 announcement, judging from Kojima's tweets. Too early to expect Fallout 4? Looks like that's being primed for the Spike TV Awards in December.

04:01 By Martin Robinson

Ah yes, good point. Would love to see what they're up to.

kingpin3000 says:

Santa Monica?

04:01 By Martin Robinson

Geoff Keighley is standing on a bright yellow button that says 'Geoff'.

04:01 By Martin Robinson

I think that means we've started.

04:02 By Martin Robinson

Expect exclusive news and announcements - stuff on Last of Us, Destiny and MGS.

04:02 By Martin Robinson

And Andrew House, wearing a fine cashmere scarf.

04:03 By Martin Robinson

This winter look's a new thing for video game conferences, and I'm a fan. Tretton's looking chilly but stylish.

04:03 By Martin Robinson

And he's promising a lot of good news, and a lot of surprises.

04:03 By Martin Robinson

We're live from a queue in New York now!

04:04 By Martin Robinson

And the first game this chap wants to play on his new PS4 is.... Call of Duty: Ghosts.

04:04 By Martin Robinson

Really? He's queuing up at midnight in the freezing cold for that.

04:05 By Martin Robinson

Mental. Anyway, here's a look back at the year for PlayStation.

04:06 By Martin Robinson

Sony's had a good year - but only really by virtue of how Microsoft has cocked things up so monumentally.

04:07 By Martin Robinson

Mark Cerny talking through the philosophy of the PS4. And I can feel a chill in the room - I don't think it's because I left a window open either.

04:07 By Martin Robinson

Now into the first exclusive, The Last of Us DLC.

04:07 By Martin Robinson

Evan and Christophe here to show us it. They're inside in a studio, so no knitwear for these guys.

04:08 By Martin Robinson

It's Ellie and her friend - I take it this is the one she refers to at the end of the game.

04:09 By Martin Robinson

So it's a prequel?

04:09 By Martin Robinson

More on that character here - http://thelastofus.wikia.com/wiki/Riley_Abel

04:10 By Martin Robinson

Ooh, what's this?

04:10 By Martin Robinson

A new Uncharted, with what seems like an older, more grisled Nathan Drake.

04:11 By Martin Robinson

I'm kind of excited, kind of disappointed - Naughty Dog's always evolved with each new platform. From Crash to Jak to Uncharted. Hoping it was going to move on. Still, I bet it's going to look gorgeous and be awesome.

04:11 By Martin Robinson

'twas indeed.

kingpin3000 says:

Was that also unnumbered? Seems to be in fashion at the moment.

04:13 By Martin Robinson

Haha, that'd be awesome, but I think he's tied up with MGS for the next few years.

NoTheMama says:

Cmon new Silent Hill from Kojima!

04:13 By Martin Robinson

Yeah, okay. I'd play the crap out of that.

JamieR says:

Maybe you will play during the days of sir Francis drake.

04:14 By Martin Robinson

We're seeing trailers for Knack and DriveClub now.

04:14 By Martin Robinson

If you're upset about DriveClub missing launch and are after a good racer on day one, well...

04:14 By Martin Robinson

I've played Need for Speed Rivals and it's excellent, so you're covered off. Should have a review up early next week.

04:16 By Martin Robinson

I think it's been worked on for some time - since the end of Uncharted 3, anyway. I'd expect to see it the end of next year, with a proper reveal before E3.

Huxen says:

I expect 'Uncharted' will get a name or a number later, It's probably a fair way off and was brought out this early for hype.

04:16 By Martin Robinson

And we're back with dead-eyed Geoff.

04:17 By Martin Robinson

There are a lot of people eating canapes and playing PS4 games.

04:18 By Martin Robinson

Hermen Hulst brightens up a dull puff piece by being generally a hunk. Can we have another announcement please?

04:19 By Martin Robinson

Nate Fox is here to tell us more about Infamous. He's excited about the power of the PS4.

04:20 By Martin Robinson

A new inFamous trailer, complete with Nirvana soundtrack.

04:21 By Martin Robinson

March 21st release date for Infamous Second Son.

04:21 By Martin Robinson

Carlos has come from Columbia for PS4 launch.

04:21 By Martin Robinson

Good work Carlos.

04:22 By Martin Robinson

And we're off for another ad-break. OH COME ON!

04:23 By Martin Robinson

Would watch.

Huxen says:

They should have set this in a cramped teenagers bedroom with Andrew House and Jack Tretton loitering in the doorway.

04:24 By Martin Robinson

So, what's left - a new look at Destiny, and some MGS5 news. I hope there's a drop the mic announcement too at the end.

04:24 By Martin Robinson

Destiny's at least worth getting up for. I hope.

04:25 By Martin Robinson

BEVERAGE WATCH! Who's drinking coffee, who's drinking tea - and who's gone for anything a bit harder to get them through?

04:26 By Martin Robinson

I'm on my second cup of thick black coffee, and am only just beginning to get the jitters.

04:26 By Martin Robinson

Good man!

-cerberus- says:

Having a cup of coffee. With scotch.

04:27 By Martin Robinson

Is Geoff... Is he... Is he wearing a waistcoat and jeans?

04:28 By Martin Robinson

I remember someone tried to get away with that at my school disco in 1994. Didn't work then, doesn't work now.

04:28 By Martin Robinson

Anyway, we're inside Sony R&D looking at eye tracking on the PlayStation Eye.

04:28 By Martin Robinson

Oh yes!

karlo87 says:

Come on Sony R&D, get your VR out

04:29 By Martin Robinson

Sony R&D's working with NASA - to make you feel like you're exploring space with the PS4 alongside NASA.

04:29 By Martin Robinson

No VR, but that is kind of awesome.

04:30 By Martin Robinson

We're back at the queue! This is live television at its very best.

04:31 By Martin Robinson

It's a Killzone Shadow Fall advert now. This is just one super-long, super-banal advert.

04:34 By Martin Robinson

Amazing. Not too late to have that in the PS4, I hope.

speed182 says:

My playstation memory: Thinking
when I was a kid with the PS1 if you completed a game a fiver came out of the memory card slot... never did!

04:34 By Martin Robinson

What's everyone getting day one with their PS4s? AC4, NFS and Resogun seem like the safest bets to me.

04:34 By Martin Robinson

Oh, and Killzone's worth a punt too.

04:35 By Martin Robinson

And we're baaaaaaaaaack.

04:35 By Martin Robinson

Shu Yoshida - lovely, lovely Shu - is taking us through the story of PlayStation.

04:36 By Martin Robinson

Towerfall's a new announcement. It's a chaotic indie.

04:37 By Martin Robinson

It's coming! I'm not getting the game 'til later this morning, so I hope to have it with you early next week.

Scimarad says:

A Need for Speed review would be nice, thank you very much.

04:38 By Martin Robinson

Shu talks The Last Guardian - he's played it. Though he's not saying whether it was with a DualShock 3 or 4.

04:38 By Martin Robinson

I'm betting it was the latter. Also, apparently it looks pretty.

04:38 By Martin Robinson

I don't think it'll be too long until we see that game again - but I don't think it's going to happen here. Maybe at the VGAs?

04:38 By Martin Robinson

Anyway, DESTINY!

04:39 By Martin Robinson

Bloody lovely Destiny. Maybe it's the third cup of coffee, but I'm getting palpitations right now.

04:40 By Martin Robinson

Destiny's up and running, and we're on the moon.

04:40 By Martin Robinson

There are guns and monsters and explosions and all sorts.

04:41 By Martin Robinson

First access to Destiny beta comes to PlayStation.

04:42 By Martin Robinson

MGS5 is up next. After another ad-break.

04:42 By Martin Robinson

That he did.

david'djhicks'hicks says:

I have my beta code... did he say it'd be on ps3 too

04:44 By Martin Robinson

I'd say so - seems like the PS4 was designed with it in mind, and it was only taken out so they could undercut the cost of the Xbox One.

kingpin3000 says:

So next question. Is it worth getting the camera?

04:44 By Martin Robinson

What's a Criss Angel?

04:46 By Martin Robinson

We're back once more for what I believe will be the final stint.

04:46 By Martin Robinson

MGS5 news, and - fingers crossed - one more announcement.

04:47 By Martin Robinson

Koj o'clock.

04:47 By Martin Robinson

He's talking Ground Zeroes - which is the prelude to Phantom Pain.

04:47 By Martin Robinson

And there's a PlayStation exclusive mission.

04:47 By Martin Robinson

I really liked that game!

david'djhicks'hicks says:

LOL my 1st ps memory was Porsche Challenge

HAHAHA

04:48 By Martin Robinson

Back to MGS5 - it's a 'deja vu' mission.

04:48 By Martin Robinson

Hope it's not deja vu in that it's the same bloody mission we've seen for the last few months being played again and again.

04:48 By Martin Robinson

It is - but with a low-poly player skin from the first game.

04:49 By Martin Robinson

Er....

04:49 By Martin Robinson

Um...

04:50 By Martin Robinson

You say that... I bet we'll all be back here again for the next one of these. And the circle of disappointment will roll on!

karlo87 says:

I'm never getting hyped for anything ever again

04:52 By Martin Robinson

Well, at least Octodad and Hohokum still look good, as these ads attest.

04:52 By Martin Robinson

Thinking back to MGS5 announcement - will Classic Snake have Hayter's voice?

04:54 By Martin Robinson

I know they've got to raise interest, but some of it was super-disingenuous.

karlo87 says:

Scimarad, Geoff and Kojima hyped it up not us

04:55 By Martin Robinson

The big moment - the first guy in the queue is about to get his PS4. He's been waiting since yesterday morning.

04:56 By Martin Robinson

This guy hadn't pre-ordered - let that be a lesson to us all.

04:56 By Martin Robinson

Just time for some more ads!

04:57 By Martin Robinson

Oh lord, I hope they catch the moment when someone breaks that to him.

Gedeye says:

Poor guy has been queuing so long, he's not read the Knack reviews.

04:58 By Martin Robinson

The Order, Destiny, Kingdom Hearts, NBA and FF15. They're all games coming to PS4!

04:59 By Martin Robinson

Countdown to nothing! Anyway, a recap of the 'news' from this event. MGS5 is getting a PlayStation exclusive Classic Snake skin.

04:59 By Martin Robinson

Destiny beta's coming to PS3 and PS4 first.

04:59 By Martin Robinson

Indie game Towerfall is coming to PS4.

05:00 By Martin Robinson

Aaand Uncharted is on its way to PS4.

05:00 By Martin Robinson

Plus! The Last of Us DLC is a prequel starring Ellie and her friend Riley.

05:00 By Martin Robinson

And that's a wrap on officially the longest advert I've ever seen.

05:01 By Martin Robinson

Thank you for getting up so early, and apologies for the event!

05:02 By Martin Robinson

And with that I'm off - see you all later!
