The PlayStation 4 will be playable to the public during San Diego Comic-Con later this month, Sony announced today. It will mark the first time the general public will be able to go hands-on with the next-generation console since its announcement in February.

The Xbox One will also be playable at Comic-Con.

Gamers can try out the PS4 games DriveClub, Octodad, and Knack during the show at Sony's booth. Various PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3 titles will also be on hand and playable.

In addition, Naughty Dog creative director Neil Druckmann and comic book artist Faith Erin Hicks will sign copies of The Last of Us: American Dreams at the Dark Horse booth on Friday, July 19, from 2-3 p.m. PDT. Druckmann and Hicks will also make an appearance on the "Art of Video Games" panel at 4 p.m. that day.

Gamers can also expect to learn more about the PlayStation Vita version of The Walking Dead at Comic-Con during a July 20 panel titled "Behind the Scenes with Telltale Games' The Walking Dead Game Series." It will be hosted by series creator Robert Kirkman, Telltale Games developers, and PlayStation's Don Mesa.

San Diego Comic-Con takes place at the San Diego Convention Center July 18-21.

Does anybody remember the preview videos for Killzone 2 , the graphics there were better than all these next gen games combined , that was some fd up shit , now we got like a 0.5 increase in graphic fidelity from the videos at least , at least theyre not lying this time around

Why no Killzone? c'mon Sony don't make such a stupid move noticed by almost every person here.

When you are trying to show people what a new console can do you really don't want to show games like Knack or Octodad. They aren't exactly ground breaking visually.

Wow..I"m surprised that GS even mentioned that the Xbox One will be playable as well....I mean that's gotta mean a little less cash from Sony for them..OH WAIT...it doesn't matter because people will click away because it says SONY in the article...Touche Gamespot...your sponsors will be very proud of you...If only this was written by MR. SOLONELY Himself Martin Gaston....

@wongph strange but if u experience 10fps while roaming in the world of GTA or any other Sandbox games,I bet,u've just turned out like the ppl...

@GrayF0X786  No need to try a already known game while other games need to have attention more espically Knack & driveclub (that is my though may be wrong)

@CaveManCobb  I can't believe what I just read...Octodad just happens to be the #1 pre-ordeded game for PS4....

Do you really believe the extent of what a console can do lies within its graphics?

@lostastsea22485 I feel you, but if you want a place where intelligence trumps the desire for clicks you need to find a forum. and, if anyone calls this, or IGN, or Kotaku, or anyone else who get's those primetime booths at the top gaming festivals forum's, then they're idiots. I mean NeoGaf and BigBomb might be utlra popular, but at lest they stick to their roots.

@berzerk0912 have fun with your ps3.5: graphics upgrade 2.0 complete with the same lousy controller and poorstation network

xbox one servers: 300,000

ps3.5 servers: 40,000

I will also have fun playing battlefield 4 exclusively timed dlc before you and the exclusive content for fifa 14 ultimate team on xbox one....the cod: ghosts dlc is just an added bonus even though I don't play COD other than zombies

infamous, killzone, driveclub, and probably a bunch of other ps3.5 titles run at 30fps on ps3.5....this is 2013 right?

the ps eye will be gimmicky and unsupported with nobody buying it...so no innovation on sony's part...the led screen on the controller is useless...they tried to copy Microsoft by switching to triggers and moving the shoot button on first-person shooters from L1 to L2...but the controller still fails with the crappy analog sticks

Also your laggy, player hosted servers are yesterday's technology and will fail miserable at launch and for awhile to come after the ps3.5 release.

One last point....Microsoft makes a profit...sony is in debt..lmao

p.s. don't get too butthurt welfarestation 3.5 fannies

@NotLukos No I'm not actually but that seems to be what people pay the most attention to now days. Look at Heavy Rain that game was just graphics and it was a pile of dog shit.

@deadly_yank33  Well I can live with that.........I'm gonna buy a Ps4 cuz I'll play God of War, Infamous, Little Big Planet, Uncharted, last of us, and GT series I mean exclusives titles....and the thing about Battlefield and Fifa is avery poor argument...I think any other MS fanboy can do it better .... Good Luck with Kinnect !!!

@deadly_yank33 the funny thing about your post is that the ps4 is still more powerful then the xbox one. also the games running at 30 frames is bothersome but having great exclusives close to  launch is better than having them run at 60 frames and coming out TBA like half the exclusives on the xbox one.

@deadly_yank33 At least we've got 1/2 of an upgrade. The Xbone is now what the PS3 was originally. Blu ray drive, internal HDD, WiFi with a last gen GPU and memory architecture.

Oh, and regarding servers.. a single industrial Unix server can be dozens of times more powerful than a crappy X86_64 blade running Windows. The number of servers means just nothing.

NotLukos
NotLukos

The number of servers Xbox has is irrelevant. Not all of those servers are for Xbox, and now that the system is disc-based, Xbox isn't likely to use many more than Sony does.

Have fun with BF4 and call of duty *cough*FPS*cough* Fifa *sports*cough*TV*cough*fail*coughcough*

Something tells me you haven't held an Xbox One controller OR a DualShock 4 yet. I will pay no attention to that paragrapph.

Something also tells me you really know nothing about PS4's servers either. Ignoring.

Microsoft makes a profit, but that's because they own Windows and Office, not because Xbox is good or bad. Right now, Xbone isn't making them the profit they were betting on, not by a LOOOOONG shot, lol.

And finally, the PS.

Welfarestation 3.5 fannies. lol. That right there invalidated your whole argument by proving just how dumb an Xbot you really are.

@deadly_yank33 Wow, you are one of the most ignorant and biased gamers I have seen. So PS4 has more powerful hardware/specs but somehow you think the opposite? Developers all over the globe are saying the PS4 is more powerful. So in your logic, if PS4 is just  PS 3.5,  the XB1 is 3.25 or less?  You are afraid of PS4, wether you want to admit it or not. You were sure XB1 would come out more powerful and dominate the PS4. But after the embarrassing shitstorm MS endured  and were shamed into reversing their policies, releasing a less powerful/more expensive console, you are concerned about how XB1 will do. The entire "power of the cloud" that MS says they will use to strengthen the power of the console is pure BS. Do some research on it. Buy the XB1, who cares. But why do you have to troll PS4 articles and bitch and moan about a console you aren't going to get anyway?  XB1 isn't  a bad console at all. In fact, someday I will get one but not until  price of the console is worth it and there are games the justify a purchase.  Other than Forza, MS has a very weak exclusive lineup. Dead Rising and Ryse are not system sellers.

@deadly_yank33 Also, I forgot to mention those fugly graphics for Killer Instinct due to the down clock of the GPU, and enjoy spending over 100.00 just have to the full game you volunteer rape victim. OOPS!! There I go again. What I really meant to say is tv, tv, tv, Kinect, tv, tv, tv, Kinect, tv, tv, tv, cloud.

@deadly_yank33 Have fun with your Kinect anal probing device that must stay connected in you while your getting monitored by Microsoft, and the NSA. I hope you got plenty of ice to keep that ESRAM cool. Oh wait... The GPU has a down clock already.

@berzerk0912 (shhhh!! Don't go talking about the actual console! Talk about servers and Kinect. That's all the matters. Servers. And. Kinect. System architecture, CrossPlay, upgradeable hard drive, and flexibility and ease of development for games is for losers.)

@Dahmenator better graphics than the xbox one? I don't know what you are talking about...I do recall all that jibber jabber over the ps3...and it failed miserably...all multiplatform games will play better on xbox live period.

@dogbert784 @deadly_yank33 thank you kind sir! times are tough since a lot of sheep have come out their caves since e3 to support sony's decision to make people pay $400 for some slightly better graphics.
