All The Biggest Sony PlayStation News From Gamescom 2014

No Last Guardian, but new Silent Hill!

Gamescom gets bigger and bigger every year, and although it might not quite rival E3, the show has more than its fair share of bombshell announcements. Here's a rundown of the biggest Sony news from the show so far.

If you've got the time, you can also catch up on the entire Sony press conference right here, or get a rundown on our thoughts in the video above.

PlayStation 4 Games News:

Sony's presser was almost E3 like in the number of new games they showed off. Well, new games related to PS4, anyway. You'll notice a distinct lack of Vita and PS3 news at this year's show. Also no Last Guardian...but we still have the Tokyo Game Show, so don't lose hope yet.

Everything Else Sony:

We have even more coverage of the games and stories around Gamescom throughout the weekend, but you can check it all out on our hub page here.

Who the hell is that blonde guy on the right?


He needs a righteous check.  Games are take longer to make now and theres only so many ready for show...to be so pompous about not having a lot of games being shown....hell, man...what do you want?  


How you're not excited to play most of these games is beyond me.  Well....I guess when you don't get to do it for fun and it's your work...but thats on you...you chose to do this job.

I thought E3 was very much Microsoft's, I enjoyed their line up and presentation a lot more. But Sony had a more interesting Gamescom.

Not nearly enough PS Vita stuff here... just bought one and though I have tons of games to play for now, wouldn't have minded some reasons to get jazzed for the future.  Looking forward to picking up a PS4 though

In all honesty, and I risk getting called a sony fanboy, PS4 had a more interesting and diverse lineup. Xbox was all about halo, call of duty, tomb rider and generally mostly grity and dark themes(with sunset overdrive being the exception). PS4 had both grity and brightly coloured games to show for it.

the only thing that disappointed me about gamescom is we didn't get to see more of no man's sky. I would have liked to have seen what the game offers other than exploration, spaceship combat and alien life. like perhaps missions or resource gathering or whatever, I want to see how all that works. other than that though, I could not keep my eyes off the screen.

The biggest news: no Vita news! Vita is dead. Damn you, Sony!

All I need is PC and PS4,  most of the xbox exclusives come to PC with higher graphics so im set.  Cant wait to play Dead Rising 3 in 1080p and 60FPS soon.

Amazing show at Gamescom for Sony. As far as games at the show, looking forward (in current order of excitement) to Bloodborne, Destiny, Silent Hills, The Order 1886 (Tesla!), Rime, Hellblade, Until Dawn and Wild.

I'm actually pretty happy with the news that came out of both Sony and Microsoft. Out of the Sony side, I'm especially excited about Silent Hills, Tearaway and the PSTV. Good year to be a gamer.

I swear today's so called gamers are a bunch a crybabies. They say there are no games, but name me one console in it's first year that had a huge library of games? They cry about the delays and want these devs to push these games out quickly then cry and say it's a bad game because it's full of bugs. If your standing around waiting for the next popular game then your simply a casual. All this my PS4, Xbox is collecting dust is bs mines are used everyday why? Because I'm a gamer I play it all even with me working full-time and have a wife and kids. I go out a lot and still find a way to keep all my consoles and PC rig running from me gaming on them. If yo u bought a PS4 or Xbox for a 1 or 2 games a year you got your priorities all screwed up.

When they say PS TV is coming to US and EU, is Canada included in US region?

Game news have been extremelly boring for the past half a year. Not to mention my PS4 collecting dust for ages now.

The Order looks good. Aside from thatm most of those games are a big meh..

Far Cry 4... been there done that. Destiny might be nice but I doubt I will dig it for long.. 

Bloodborne looks ok, but nothing new here for the From Software formula - at least for now. I still have to continue and finish Dark Souls 2 that I have been dragging for a long time now. I am not sure about Bloodborne.


Hellblade concept character looks nice, but Ninja Theory games have a knack of being really lacking in some ways.


The only game I am really interested in at the moment is Shadow of Mordor, and I hope I won't be disappointed.

If you have a ps4 you should try Dc online. It's free and pretty fun. And free.

It all sounds like good stuff, nothing that gets me all excited and giddy, but OK.

@Essian Ikr? It's so sad. It's a great piece of hardware that Sony is basically ignoring.

@Essian Vita is a strange thing. It has a great set of games and quite a few of them and plenty of PSP and PSOne classics and yet Sony still aren't motivated to do much of anything for it long term.

That's good... Now get lost!

@YanniBG there's that freedom game coming out soon? like a futuristic 3rd person shooter or something? looks great though.

If you pre-order on Steam right now you get 20 percent off  38 bucks or so.

@kelseyjb yep, i strongly agree. People need to be less "cry baby" and grow up a little. This year is going to have awesome games!! and when Bloodborne comes out *DROOLS*

@GunEye you gotta remember Dark Souls 2 was developed my From Software's B Team!! the game was boring and flat compare to the design from Demon Souls and Dark Souls. Bloodborn will be the game Souls fans have been waiting for since Dark souls 1.

@GunEye How can you say nothing new in Bloodborne? They have completely changed the combat, and the pacing of the game.

Short story your a casual.

Not interested in The Witcher 3, Wild, Evolve, Dragon age, Drive Club, Uncharted, Evil Within, Mortal Kombat X or Dying Light?

Maybe your hobby for video games is fading...

Sorry to here you don't have much to look forward to. I can relate to your thoughts for Destiny though. I wasn't impressed. Visually it's okay. But I wasn't impressed with the game itself. MP seemed to lack the immersive part for me.

It's almost as Destiny would be a single player grind fest. Once you complete all the missions there would be no drive to play mp.

War Thunder is actually really addicting. I love the time era of WW2 once you get used to the interface, it's an 8.0/10 in my book

Bloodborne looks awesome in my opinion, but I'm sure those casuals and crybabies will say it sucks.

@cure_4_humanity @GunEye looks bloody fantastic!! you can tell Miyazaki is working on this project! Dark souls 2 was to bland for my tastes and felt "more of the same" but with not as good enemy design, environmental design, boss design, and step back in COMBAT design.

@kelseyjb Wow... your deduction skills are just impressive. How do you do that? lol

@TheExxorcist I honestly forgot about The Witcher 3, but in truth I wasn't impressed by the gameplay shown a few days back. Still I am looking forward for this game.

And who are you to tell me how my gaming hobby is doing?

The fact that I am busier than I used to be, which affects the time I have to browse gaming news and inspect every game demo, doesn't mean my passion for gaming is weaker than before. On the contrary. Nothing like a good game to relax with on your spare time.

@kelseyjb The people who are going to hate on it are 1- people who hate Sony in general, and 2- people who just want to own a Xbox one!! which is very sad IMO

I didn't tell you anything friend... I just said "maybe". Meaning I was guessing. I've become more casual lately myself.

Nothin to be upset about.

GunEye

@TheExxorcist Naa not upset at all man. I personally have a huge back log of games I have yet to play or finish: Ni No Kuni, Lightning Returns (playing), The Last of Us, Metal Gear Solid GZ, Beyond Two Souls, Bioshock Infinite (haven't continued in months), Transistor, Dark Souls 2 (getting there) and more. 
The Witcher 3, Dragon Age 3, Shadow of Mordor, Bloodborne, The Order, yeah those games are more attractive for me at the moment. Not sure about the others... barely had time to view gamescom shows,trailers or demos tbh.
