Watch PlayStation's Mysterious Gamescom Video -- What Do You Think It's Teasing?

The short video hints at what Sony will show off at this year's Gamescom conference.

Gamescom is coming up soon. Next week, we'll see what Sony, Microsoft, and several game developers and publishers have planned for the future. There's a good chance that we'll see some new PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita games revealed at the conference, and to get people excited, Sony has released a teaser trailer for the event.

Entitled simply #PlayStationGC, the short video shows some close-up shots of snowflakes and cracking ice. Ominously, blood drops move across the screen at the same time and splatter onto the ice. Harsh, sharp noises are heard. Coupled with the blood-stained snow, the sounds seem like they'd fit in well with a horror movie.

Recently, Sony's lineup of playable titles at Gamescom leaked. This included previously unknown PS4 ports like Journey, and the reemergence of teen-horror game Until Dawn. Be sure to check out Sony's press conference next Tuesday, August 12, at 11 AM PDT. Gamescom itself runs from August 13-17 in Cologne, Germany.

Personally, I think this trailer is hinting at Sony showing off Until Dawn. Can you make anything of the trailer? What do you want to see at Sony's Gamescom event? Let us know in the comments!

If until dawn is sony main game announcement at gamescom, then this conference might an even bigger disappointment than e3 for me.

The cynic in me says it's a free PS-exclusive DLC costume for Sub Zero in the upcomming Mortal Combat :P
It would be funny if it was about the new Assassins Creed which shouldn't have leaked by now xD
But it will probably be some PSn game like Rain or whatever. I don't get my hopes too high

It's Battlefield Hardline which uses the Frostbite 3 engine... hence the snowflake and blood.

As long as it's not another hour of indie games and remasters then my body is ready.

I watched the video. My best guess is that something bloody has happened or will happen during a snow fall.

Hopefully something new. I won't care what it is as long as I haven't heard of it before. Been too many remasters recently, I'm actually sick of seeing older games. Feels like the entire industry has had the breaks clamped on in recent months. Really annoying. Plenty of new games coming out but nothing that really makes me p*ss myself with excitement.

So this gamecon could be even better than E3. Everything in E3 was leaked except what Nintendo showed. Now, we don't know what Microsoft is going to show and the same apply for Sony.

Shenmue 3 or GTFO. Yakuza 5 will also be acceptable.

@dirtydishes23  Hehehe. In all seriousness though, I would be very happy if it's another game from David Cage.

@uchihasilver I would buy a PS4 and two copies of the game......no I'm not joking.

@flexappeal Agreed..... It seems like alot of sony exclusives end up being fantastic games .... So i hope it is a new IP (unless it is TLOU 2, but we know that wont happen anytime soon)

@homey_d_clown Chewie died before he even got married in the Old Expanded universe. Since they threw that out your Joke comment is not funny. Change your name to Fail_Clown maybe.

@quicktim3 @fgjnfgh I'm starting to feel the same way.  I think it's all the losers out there posting nonsense "rumors" about games to be shown off, that gets people all excited to see those games, then when they aren't shown it's a letdown.

@Deadlysyns87 @homey_d_clown I actually watched it the night it first aired, it was so bad it made me sterile by the first of many commercial interruptions. And when it went off I was like, "was that it... what a waste if time".

Your Deadly sin is stupidity!

Back before you were born they made a movie called Star Wars, it was so big that George Lucas decided to make a Christmas Special. 

Everyone was in it, Luke, Han, Leia, Darth, etc, etc.

The special was so bad that it only aired 1 time, you can watch it on Youtube.

Star Wars is my sh1t son!!!!
