    GT5 left out *again*…

    Heavy Rain, UC2 and WKC the ones to look out for.

    EDIT: Razor, history has taught us that just because it’s left out of a list, it doesn’t actually mean it wont be there.

    Look at E3 last year and Square Enix.

    True, true.

    Still, it would send hype just a bit higher if they listed it ;)

    The most exciting part of that list is, “lots of PlayStation Network games”. Not that I’m uninterested in the disc titles — I’ll be very surprised if Uncharted 2 isn’t my game of the year — they’re just something of a known quantity.

    Having said that, I’m sure the things that aren’t on the list will be the most interesting. If the slim PS3 isn’t announced then A&E is going to be chock full of people choking on their own hats at this point, but there could be some interesting service announcements too: PS2 backwards compatibility, European video store, new firmware features, direction of Home, etcetera.

    “Anyone else hope they announce jak and daxter for ps3?”

    That would be plain fucking awesome.

    I know for a fact there are more titles there than just those…

    I think if we don’t see the European Vid Store we can officially kiss it goodbye for this year…though haven’t SCEE kept saying that it’s coming in 2009?

    I think it’s about time we saw a big firmware update. Not so much as design change like NXE, but definitely need to see something substantial.

    They said in Leipzig last year that the Vid Store was releasing in Europe in 2009, yep.

    #10 5 years ago
  11. Johnny Cullen

    I pretty much agree.

    If they dont announce a proper date for the Vid store in Cologne, you may as well forget about.

    Then again, it did take a while for PlayTV and VidZone to come to Europe. PlayTV was announced in Leipzig two years ago, but it didnt come out till September last year, right?

    And VidZone was announced last August, but that didn’t release till June.

    That said, it’s still ridiculous how long its been between America and EU for this as it is a pretty big feature for the PS3.

    If Sony showed the Vid Store and it was somehow compatible or incorporated iPlayer in some way I’d be so pleased. The current solution is pretty bad via the browser.

    I know I shouldn’t get my hopes up, but we can dream.

    Did Sony say if it was going to be country specific or a blanket store for Europe? I wouldn’t mind checking out some others countries TV programming, particularly the Netherlands…

    Will there be a live stream anywhere of the conference?

    #13 5 years ago

    JAW just confirmed to me that Gravity Crash is going to be there in a “much more advanced state than it was at E3″.

    I’m getting worried for the sony wand now, spring probably means december in sony talk.

    White Knight Chronicles is interesting, didnt even know it was slated for a PAL release. Unless its there purely for the US journos, now that wouldnt be very fair…

    Oh cool… SuperStardust HD Guys.

    I expect another one will be news about Relentless Software’s Murder Mystery game.

    And I wonder if we’ll see a new PixelJunk. It’s clear they are working on more than one game.

  21. No_PUDding

    Oh and no GT5, sucks major assholio

    #21 5 years ago
  22. Psychotext

    It’ll be there. I’d bet your right bollock on it.

    #22 5 years ago
  23. No_PUDding

    I only have one left…. I mean only the left one. The other, is in the Albert Hall.

    Next to Hitler’s.

  25. Johnny Cullen

    I will personally suck PUD’s dick and wank on it too.

    Thats how confident I am of GT5 not not being there.

    … if you know what I mean …

    “WTF why not?”

    Simple: it’s not E3. :D

    #25 5 years ago
  26. No_PUDding


    Doesn’t there have to be some form of consent in all these bets?

    #26 5 years ago
  27. Psychotext

    Not in my experience.

    #27 5 years ago
  28. No_PUDding

    That’s…. Upsetting.

    I don’t really want to lose my right ball or be wanked on.

    #28 5 years ago
  29. Johnny Cullen

    You do really PUD.

    It’s okay.

    What’s said in VG247, stay’s in VG247. ;)

    Hey… I never said I didn’t want to be sucked off.

    /switches on light

    “Oh god, you’re a man!”

    “I didn’t say you should stop.”

    So… Will The Last Guardian be there? Or is it reserved for TGS, as I very strongly believe?

    #37 5 years ago
  38. Gekidami

    I’d be surprised if we saw anything of The Last Guardian at the TGS tbh let alone GamesCom.

    #38 5 years ago
  39. Johnny Cullen

    TGS tbh.

    That said, I hope its there.

    #39 5 years ago
  40. No_PUDding

    It will be at TGS, it’s coming out Q1 2010 according to Yoshida.

    It WAS slated for this year, believe it or not, Yoshida said now it’s playable, it will be seen a lot more. So it’s WILL be at TGS. Just I doubt it will be at GamesCOM, like Johnny.
