Shift Highlights

Gamescom 2011: Sony’s Yoshida on the PS3 cut and more
The guys have a chat with Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida on dropping PS3 to £199, Media Molecule’s “totally new” project, The Last Guardian, Gran Turismo and the future of Move.

Gamescom 2011: Namco liveblog from tomorrow 2:30pm
Thursday, we’re seeing Namco in the afternoon, showing us two big titles for both this year and next year: Dark Souls and Soul Calibur V. We’re promised hands-on time with the latter tomorrow, but we’re only doing the presentation stuff.

Now, it’s time for a frosty drink and to get you enlightened on all the gamescom goodness from today. As usual, the important bits are in lovely box form. Also, if you missed it, Stace’s European Wrap-up is through here.

And here’s the bits Deb covered for us today:

See you tomorrow.
