PlayStation Paris Games Week Press Conference Date And Time Revealed

Sony to show more of its upcoming games in October.

5 Comments

Sony is skipping Europe's biggest gaming event, Gamescom, this year, but it's still going to be showing off more of its games in the region. In lieu of the Cologne, Germany, convention, Sony is heading to France as part of Paris Games Week, and its big PlayStation conference will take place on October 30 at 8 AM PT / 11 AM ET / 4 PM GMT. That's 1 AM AEST on October 31 if you're in Australia.

It's unclear at this stage what Sony will show off at its Media Showcase, but the event will likely include trailers and gameplay from the publisher's upcoming games, similar to its traditional E3 show. At the event two years ago, Sony revealed Uncharted 4's multiplayer mode, showed off more footage of Horizon Zero Dawn, confirmed Street Fighter V's release date and unveiled Quantic Dream's latest game, Detroit: Become Human. The company says it will reveal more details about this year's event soon.

The timing of the conference puts it just a few weeks before Sony's PlayStation Experience celebration in California, USA, where the platform holder typically holds another conference full of trailers and more announcements. That event runs from December 9 to December 10.

Although Sony has elected not to hold a conference at Gamescom, Microsoft has confirmed it will attend the show with a conference and playable Xbox One X consoles. Stay tuned to GameSpot for all the news, trailers, impressions, and more when we attend the show next week.

Just ahead of the PlayStation 4 Pro launch, System Architect Mark Cerny had revealed that the console would include a couple features from AMD’s VEGA future roadmap. One of these is what AMD is now calling Rapid Packed Math; at the time, Cerny said that it has the potential to “radically increase performance”.

Looks like Microsoft will steal the show at Gamescom this year; considering Sony will be absent that’s not really much of a statement.

Kind of disappointing but perhaps their decision to skip out on this years’ event is a better strategy in their mind. I also can’t help but wonder if this move (get ready… putting on tin foil ninja suit.) is to build more momentum going into their other show later in the year (Playstation Experience.). A decent showing in Paris with some teasers here and there will keep interest at a high for a month or 2 before the Playstation Experience. The only caveat here is that Playstation Experience has to deliver the goods then. Big name AAA games like The Last of Us 2 or Death Stranding (games that have been notably absent at recent expos.) are what most people are looking for and if Sony can deliver I think they can end off the year on a high note going into 2018.

@videogameninja: Maybe its disappointing E3 conference was because Sony is holding stuff back for its two more conferences this year? Here's hoping it's got something great lined up, right? :)
