Sony keeping PS4 announcements for Gamescom 2013

SCEE executive says "we need to have something to show at Gamescom, don't we?"

Sony Computer Entertainment Europe boss Jim Ryan has spoken about the company's relatively thin unveiling of new first-party titles for the PlayStation 4 at its E3 2013 press conference, but has emphasised that there's a "lot coming" from the company.

Ryan also hinted that Sony will make announcements at August's Gamescom trade show in Cologne, Germany.

Speaking in an interview with Gamereactor, Ryan said "there's a lot coming. I'm sure you heard from [Shuhei Yoshida, president of Sony Worldwide Studios] that he has, just his studios, he has 30 games in development. 20 are going to ship within the first year of the console's life, and of those 12 are new IP. So there's a lot going on, it's just we need to keep stuff back."

Sony unveiled Ready at Dawn's The Order: 1886 at its E3 2013 press conference. During the announcement of the PlayStation 4 in February, Sony debuted Knack, inFamous: Second Son, Killzone: Shadow Fall, and DriveClub.

"We've Gamescom for us Europeans, and we need to have something to show at Gamescom, don't we?" concluded Ryan.

The PlayStation 4 will launch later in 2013 for $399. Gamescom will take place this year from August 21 through 25.

I didn't know you could switch out HDDs, I can't wait to be able to have my HDD be 2 TB or even higher. Another one on Xbox they have, it's more like Xbox DOne.

We need games at launch to Sony. lol!! Sony has a tendency of announce a huge number of games and then they don't get released until 1-2yrs later. We are still waiting for The Last Guardian. Remember that game? What happened to FF XIII Vs? I'm glad they have more games for Gamescom, because so does Microsoft. Then didn't show everything at the E3 either. Not sure if Nintendo will be showing anything new.

All do PS4 just need is a Halo and Sony have to innovate something like it.

I want to see maybe 2 new exclusives, and more about the other games we've seen. More PS4 info too.

To keep it short and simple: I'm expecting more details about MGS5 on the PS4. Don't let me down on this, Sony.

Honestly, "The Order" would be enough for me (hugely excited for that), but I can't wait to see these other games.

they showed everything that is worth while showing atm, the best of show was Sony playing off MS horrible PR and corporate maneuvering.  To me it was like a great drama or a sporting event, sort of like a shooting competition, Sony made all the right shots almost all bullseyes with the fans, MS on the other hand decided to point the gun at its feet for the majority of E3, only to capitulate in the end and prove us all right.  A great drama that in the end saw the consumer win a little back from a corporation who thinks it will dictate what people will like, buy.  MS fans are overly loyal, and im not bashing them, just saying MS doesn't deserve fans like that.

After Microsoft's conference and their pricing, I like to think Sony backtracked and removed some of the games from their conference as they thought they can put on a good show and win in people's eyes without the need of showing them and then put those games on Gamescom and TGS.

I have posted this numerous times but I honestly think they should release the console in late September/early October. My reason being that all the hardcore gamers will get it on day 1. Then they will have ample time to replenish inventory for the holiday season therefore increasing units sold. It makes sense to me anyway...

No matter how many times I get burned, there's a little voice inside my head that, upon reading any kind of news proclaiming upcoming PS reveals, regresses back into that hopeful, high-pitched whisper and says, "Last Guardian, maybe?" 

That same voice is responsible for torturing me with Half Life 3 hopes and dreams for many a year now. I hate that fucking voice.

Like I've been saying Sony has shown more attitude that their sh;t is all in line. They have games I want to play and a price anyone can slap together. Their information is tight and released close to when people are going to remember and want to buy. So far they have an awesome launch lineup. For me I'd like to see an action rpg or something like that. Sony has read gamers minds from day 1 of ps4 and they have MAJORly stepped up to what make this next gen worth it Otherwise again Somy wins.

I need PS Vita news, give me something to get back the excitement of the first day having my own PS Vita.

They need to bring back The Getaway and Heavenly Sword. Two games I felt had so much potential but Sony just pushed them away like an ugly swan.

@X-Robert I've been a happy xbox 360 owner until recently but I totally agree with you. M$ has pushed the line too far this time, and must be punished for their treason against us GAMERS. PS4 Pre-ordered! :)

@Gamer_4_Fun I doubt that. They already had everything planned for weeks. Microsoft is holding back on showing all their games too, so it was obvious Sony would do the same.

@kljohns2 Yeah, so we console guys can get our hands on next-gen AC4 day one.

@kljohns2 and risk hardware failure because of rushing to release all the units its best to wait 

wooooode
wooooode

The issue is they are going to make the most units they can dont matter what. They are producing them as we speak but releasing 500k in October will just hurt them like it did with the PS3 by not having enough at launch. It would be better to have 2 Million available in November.

@dagrimmreepa You know now in 2013, Mankind has created alot of ways for you to make these voice in your head go away. Its not just ice pick and or shock therapy anymore.

@kouji03 I feel like after this past gen with all the hardware failure both companies should have their act together. Key word "should" lol

kljohns2

@wooooode I understand that completely, maybe they can have an advertised "Limited Early Release" to build hype and demand for the full launch. I don't know, I just feel like they would maximize profit that way. I just want it sooner than November lol

I have been wishing for one of these for a long time.

@epicgameresearc i would rather a new IP from Ninja Theory. Heanvenly Sword was good but nothing special. Maybe because it is very similar to GoW it makes it seem like an inferior version of it.  I believe they have something much more special and original in Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, I discovered this game rather late but god was it good. And they have some interesting ideas in DMC that they could explore to be implemented in a new Ip too.

@19James89 @themob0822 Resistance wasn't bad, but Insomniac just didn't cut it with their fps, and whilst Killzone has always been good, it's always catered for a select few, I personally can't understand why anyone would like Halo, ever but thats just me, PS4 need to revive some oldies, Onimusha, Tenchu, Suikoden, Koudelka, Fatal Frame, new IPs are all well n good, but nowadays they just tread the same old, and add nothing new to the mix.
