Sony will bring out some unannounced games at Tuesday’s Gamescom event

Friday, 16 August 2013 01:03 GMT By Phil Owen

Like Microsoft, Sony is holding a big pre-Gamescom showcase that they will be streaming online for all to enjoy. The company has confirmed some unannounced games for the show.

Taking place at 10am PT Tuesday/3am Sydney time Wednesday, they will show videos and talk a big game about the stuff they have coming. Also, they say they will feature some currently unannounced titles along with the stuff we already know about. So, um, anybody have odds on a Last Guardian mention?

Thanks, DrDamn.

    i am on a weird u-turn myself right now…if the industry is so fucked up anway…why shouldn’t i just go for the x1 next gen?

    :)

    i loved the 360 and just couldn’t get into the ps3 this gen. only sony exclusive i would consider a true must play was demons souls. i could not get into sony consoles since psx….and trust me, i tried. i enjoy my vita but compared to 3ds it lacks so much. tech isn’t everything. in fact tech doesn’t count much at all. truly liking and enjoying a console takes more than specs.
    sooooo
    x1 and nintendo for the next gen?

    hahaa, thinking about this stuff is fun and a pain. i hate ms right now but i prefer their os and ui and controller. why shouldn’t i be an egoistic ass?

    might make a thread about this next week.

    I should hope so since they haven’t impressed me with any games yet. At E3 they didn’t really show much.

  9. OlderGamer

    Right behind you Poly. With all of the u-turns from MS and now the Kinect being able to be unplugged…I am putting the XBO back on the table for my consideration too. Like you I couldn’t get into Playstation either. Any of them. I owned them all, and gamed on them all. PSN+ makes a lot of sense. But, I don’t go bonkers for their exclusives, they just feel overrated to me. I play Uncharted and wonder what the hell the excitement is about.

    Everyone likes their own things, that’s cool. But for me, PC is where I find the most enjoyment. So that is where I will continue to spend most of my time and money. And I will keep waiting on the rest. If/when MS lets a kinectless sku out into the wild…I might bite, if enough games are out there to warrant a purchase.

    But you are not alone man, far from it.

    I am surprised so many are so fickle they are considering siding with xbone, all the u turns are not a good sign… why didn’t they have the right policies in the first place? they will screw you soon as they have you on board like they did with 360. ps+ is a great service and ms couldn’t be arsed to compete for 360 owners to get a good deal too. they care only for money, Sony also cares for money but now realises that pleasing customers is the best way to make that money. ms is a sinking ship, they don’t deserve your money. windows is on a downturn too, 430 quid to join the losing team is too much to ask. I don’t trust them and never will

    i totally understand that gomersoul and i even sign everything you have said. only a few days ago i had a rant about it here.
    but….i think a lot about this recently. i wasn’t totally enjoying a sony console ever.( well i liked the psp).
    i just dont feel buying into ps4 somehow. i just don’t feel it.
    trust me, i got principles regarding my buying/ consuming decissions for pretty much everything…somtimes i even think i go to far. like in this case maybe?
    i dont like where ms is pushing gaming to. question is. does my buying behaviour really change anything. this is only the entertainment biz anyway. noone is really harmed. it is luxury anyway.

    well i think theres a thread incoming as soon as i am back home on a keyboard.

    @og and owen. i am thinking about pc a lot too recently.it just seems like a great escape out of this console madness.

    @polygem.. if the industry IS so fucked up.. than why not side with the PS4? what do you have to loose? except for maybe halo and forza. PSN is bound to get better cause it’s a premium service now. and the sony exclusives are way better than the riese crap you are gonna have on the other side..

    @10 Indeed. There’s a huge amount of over-thinking, over-justifying, over-complicating that’s going on. You know your own preferences and, right now, unreleased consoles are vapour. It’s hard to judge the pros and cons of a controller, for example, without actually holding and using it (some would even seek to argue that opinions are invalid unless you have. Can you imagine?!). The same thing is true of the services and games.

    Separating the games from the services from the politics is difficult. Sometimes, in part, to us saturating ourselves in so much of that detail.

    Personally, based on my own preferences and past experiences with the output of the current console manufacturers, I know which way I’m leaning. Though it’s not worth my time to invest in next gen right now when it’s so expensive, unproven and libraries so small.

    I think it’s far too easy to forget that these things are a marathon and not a sprint. Watching changes occur within a matter of weeks and extrapolating that to 5-10 years doesn’t really make a lot of sense. But I can understand that gamers have pretty short attention spans and we tend to get easily distracted by something bold and eye-catching.

    The safest bet of all is a PC, undoubtedly. A little more investment and effort yield astonishing returns.

    It’s always nice to visit the circus now and again though.

    Very true JM, some people look too deeply into a decision like there next gen choice, eventually its not really gonna matter is it.

    I was a PS3 gamer this gen because I felt Sony were doing more exclusives I prefered and theres only so much FPS I could stomach, didnt mean 360 was any less of a console.

    I’ll be getting a PS4 because I prefere what Ive seen of it. Passion only comes in for the games, nothing more.

    These so called “next gen” consoles are just shite PC’s. Yet Sony’s (and MS) PR will hail them the second coming.

    It amazes me how many buy into their bullshit.

    Want next gen? Buy a gaming PC! Yet some on here can’t comprehend that…

    #25 2 years ago
  26. deathm00n

    @25 Do you realize that Technology (in general) is not advanced at the same time around the world? If you don’t, read a little about it. You can tell us all you want about PC being cheaper and the consoles being underrated compared to PCs. BUT this only happens in countrys with cheap technology and that can produce their own technology. Sure, you can probably build a PC that beat the next-gen consoles for what, $800? Guess how much I’ve paid for my pc (here in Brazil) that is only a little better than my PS3 (it can run FarCry 3 on high specs at 60fps)? $1100. How much do you think it will cost to build one that beat the next gen? I’ve paid $350 for my PS3 last year.

    So PS4 with PS+ is going to cost way less I’m sure, since Sony have a factory in Brazil, so the technology is being produced here.

    In the end it’s not buying their bullshit to me, but going for a cheap way to play. I agree that PC is superior if you want the graphics, but you need to look at the big picture, not every place in the world can afford a good computer. Let alone internet connection, since now everything is digital on PC, my connection is 250KBp/s, took 16+ hours to download Crysis 2. It’s way more easier to buy your physical games for a console…

    @Oldergamer: I find it rather strange how you can’t get into a gaming platform. Most of the good games are multiplat and play similar on ps and xbox. Some people didn’t like the ps3-controller and online integration could be better, I can understand that. But that seems to be fixed with the PS4.

    I also prefer my pc for gaming, but there’s no way I’d buy an Xbox One after what MS did the past few months. I agree, they U-turned a lot of bad things, but all of those things were never on pc and ps in the first place. And there’s more work for MS to do: free apps like Youtube and F2P-games are still behind a paywall, Xbox Live Gold is no match for PS+ etc…

    Last but not least: a lot of Xbox One “exclusives” are also on pc. So for me, pc + PS4 somewere in 2014 is the way to go.

    Well Ge0, I have always a had issues with the PS pads. They don’t fit comfortable in my hands. And I am not a fan of where they stick the left thumb stick. Uncomfortable for me to use.

    And you are correct about the PS Online. Not so much today, but during the PS2/XB gen, I was playing Mechassult, PSO, NFL2K, Halo, Rally Sport Challenge and more online for XB. On PS2, I played EQOA and a couple games once in awhile. It was a big deal then. Ironicly, I don’t play online as much these days. Today the PSN stuff is decent, the thing I dislike are all of the firmware updates. It seems like everytime I turn the system on, the PS3 needs to download something…and in truth it just takes longer to go from start to finish then the XB360 does.

    It isn’t a deal breaker.

    The behind a paywall point is rather mute at this point. Right now I subscribe to PSN+ and XBL. I imagine in the next gen whatever system I own will also mean owning a sub to go along with it. If I am paying to play online with PSN+, it doesn’t really matter if apps are behind a paywall or not…I am still paying either way.

    As for the idea that MS is bad because they switched their stances…I think that is silly and blown out of proportion. What happened in my book is that Dandy Don left and was replaced, then some changes started in wholesale. Meaning that they listened to customer feedback and made adjustments. That isn’t something that should be seen as a negative. Just the opposite imo.

    I am in the same boat as you man. I am not buying a next gen system for awhile. Maybe in 2014, maybe not. Will depend on feedback from gamers/owners, amount of and quality of games that I want to own, and so on. I am just saying that I know a lot of folks that will now consider a XBO that wouldn’t have a few months back. Like Poly, I am one of those guys.

    But no matter what system I buy, PC will still be where I game the most. Consoles just aren’t as big of a deal as they used to be a gen or two ago. To me anyways.

    @Oldergamer: of coure I didn’t mean that MS is bad because they switched their stances :D But it’s a fact that it was MS who introduced all those “bad” things in the first place. For example x360 was the only gaming platform where self-publishing wasn’t allowed. L4D DLC was free on pc but not on x360 because MS didn’t allow it. And Youtube and Skype are free on every other platform, but not on x360. I don’t think Don Mattrick was responsible for all the monetizing MS did the past few years. I was just MS’ vision all the way.

    Of course it’s a good thing that they did a 180° on some of those things. But I lost all trust in MS, since they can do another 180° when millions of people bought an Xbox One. That’s why I really hope that Xbox One doesn’t sell that great in the first few months. Then MS have to keep working on their reputation, and then both devs and gamers will be better off.

    @OG
    “If I am paying to play online with PSN+, it doesn’t really matter if apps are behind a paywall or not…I am still paying either way.”

    I was the same with my Gold sub until I stopped playing so much online and let my sub slide. It’s the lack of any sort of reasonable justification why some features are behind a paywall which is the problem for me. They aren’t services, they are barely updated apps, why do they need a sub? Lovefilm, Netflix, IE, demos available first(*) what is the justification?

    I never minded paying for online. It was a cost associated with a very good service.

    (*) PS+ does this too and unless it’s a Beta where they want to limit numbers I don’t see a justification there either.

    I think down the road I will prolly pony up my console sub based on sub perks like Games for Gold and PS+. I think that is where the value is at in both cases. As for free use of apps on a console, at this point that is what I use my WiiU for. It is a great Netflix and Huluplus machine.

    In the end I can really see me continuing to move away from consoles anyways. PC is just a better fit for me, game wise.

    I also can totally dig what your saying about trusting MS Ge0. I don’t trust any company as far as I can throw them. And some of the biggest ones have a track record to justify being cautious of them.
