Announce some multiplatform AAA games on the Vita already. I'm sick of all this JRPG and Indie crap. Live up to the promise of "console quality gaming in the palm of your hands". A good Call of Duty with a full campaign and fully featured multiplayer? Some built from the ground up Vita exclusive first party games that possibly resurrect old franchises (I would love to see Medieval or Syphon Filter). Nintendo can do it, Sony can too.

F***ing Sony! That means Europe and Africa can't reasonably watch live. Look at all the others - 9am, 9:30am, noon - MUCH more friendly to us.

I'm really worried Sony haven't been banging on that they will be pushing games on a gaming machine at this year's E3 gaming show!! ;-)

Details and pricing for PS Now and PSTV. More details on a couple of soon-to-release games, updates/reveals on games coming out next year. And they'll probably close with new features coming to the PS4 over the next year.

Shadow of the Beast gameplay please Sony.


And Sony Japans split development project, if the rumours are true :)


Not so bothered about Uncharted 4 as I didn't care for 3, just like God of War after Ascension.


New generation, fresh IP for me. . Minus a Little Big Planet 3 if Media Molecule is at least aiding the new developer.

Well, after yesterday's announcement that Sony was abandoning AAA game development for Vita and only porting indies to it I guess we know they won't be talking about Vita at E3.

I'm hoping for info about the rumored 1080p ps1/2 emulator.

As a Souls fan, I'm beyond stoked for Project Beast. Especially with Hidetaka Miyazaki making it. But I am excited to learn more about Guerrilla's long rumored open world RPG, too. They hired one of the top former Obsidian devs from Fallout: New Vegas a long while back, and I have a feeling its gonna be special. With basically all first party studios making reveals, and FromSofware along with Ninja Theory, I'm super pumped. Also ready for some Fallout 4, Mass Effect, Battlefront, Wild Hunt, The Evil Within, Destiny, Inquisition and others.

I can't wait to learn more about what Ninja Theory could be up to. A new Heavenly Sword would be sweet. And if it's as far along as they claim, we are probably gonna get a release date and a bunch of gameplay :)

Why is Microsoft always first with their conference? The last time they went last was when they introduced the Kinect some 9 yrs ago. They should have had their conference at night or on Tuesday morning. You never want to go first, because your competition can then change things to try and upstage you. You always want to close the show.

I hope they don't just watch MS and adjust their show plans like last year.

@DemocraticTroll  Screw last guardian, that hype has been gone for years. Even if they announce it, i've given up on it.

@strap_704  No, no, no >_<


Shadow of the Beast is not God of War!


@willjohnboy  That's Project Beast, different game entirely.

@blackace  Yeah but there are disadvantages on going last too, most of persons are already tired from a long day watching the other conferences, plus the first impressions are the ones that most people usually remember.

If MS announces Fallout 4, Sony will make an announcement about Fallout 4 even if Bethesda isn't there :)

@mnkpro1  I kind of hope they do, and I hope Microsoft brings out some big guns this year.

Then Sony will plan accordingly and probably announce more games than they had originally planned.


Its a win-win :P

@RSM-HQ @strap_704 @willjohnboy  oops i really should have read straps comment more carefully lol, I forgot about that game it was at last years E3 wasn't it? it did'nt look too good, I think Project Beast is probably Demon Souls 2 then.

@wizardjenkins  That's the post Ministry of Truth changes version, which is now the only version.

@willjohnboy  I hope it is not a God of War clone personally. Classics going 3D tends to be a wreck. Splatter House, Golden Axe, and Altered Beast are all good examples of going from cult classic to piece of garbage, for jumping on the 3D slasher train.


It should follow the standards modern decent 2D beat em ups have set. Dragon's Crown, Guacamelee and Castle Crashers. All excellent games. This is what Shadow of the Beast is meant to be like in regards to gameplay.


*And this is coming from someone who really likes God of War, Devil May Cry (namely 3), and Ninja Gaiden (not number 3).

@RSM-HQ @willjohnboy  @RSM-HQ @willjohnboy    oh yes it was Gamescom that's right that's why i put a question mark after E3 i wasn't sure the only thing i remembered from that event was the stupid way minecraft was revealed lol, the Shadow of the beast trailer just didn't interest me, hopefully the gameplay trailer will change my mind however the point of a debut trailer is to wow gamers if the trailer was better it would make it more anticipated, it's nice to see your a fan of the original game however i was never a fan of this game hence my lack of enthusiasm, however if they make it in the god of war style of combat i might give it a try.

@willjohnboy Gamescom to be correct, none the less. .  Basing any low expectations over a teaser isn't the way to go fellow gamer, 


Shadow of the Beast is a revamp of a cult classic, original was highly considered 'the' best looking game of its time. Not to mention having a killer music soundtrack. 


As for Project Beast. 


Very unlikely, though keeping a level head; leaked stuff could be fake, so try not going over the top with a Demon Souls 2 stampede. 


What we do know is Sony Japan Studio is working with From Software on a PlayStation title. That as much is confirmed.


However, if the leaked shots are legit? That shotgun looks mighty fine.regardless, my bet is the name~


Beast Souls.

@hystavito Ah makes sense. Doubleplus good, that Ministry of Truth
