PlayStation Teases "Big Game Announcements" For Paris Games Week Event

A lot of news is coming, it seems.

65 Comments

Sony has teased its upcoming Paris Games Week press conference. In a tweet today, the company said PlayStation fans can expect "big game announcements" and other unspecified "updates" during the show.

PlayStation Live From Paris Games Week, the name of Sony's briefing at the show, will be held on October 30. The show kicks off at 3 PM GMT in Paris, which is 8 AM PT and 11 AM ET in America. For Australians, the show kicks off at 2 AM AEST on Halloween.

In a blog post, Sony teased that it will have a "slew of updates and announcements" to share. Additionally, there will be a post-show event in which Sony will share more "details and info" on other .... things.

Paris Games Week is often a big show for Sony. Some of its announcements in past years have included things like the reveal of Uncharted 4's multiplayer mode, new footage of Horizon Zero Dawn, Street Fighter V's release date and Quantic Dream's latest game, Detroit: Become Human.

The timing of Sony's Paris Games Week conference puts it just a couple months 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.

Sony did not have a briefing at Gamescom in August (Microsoft did), so this will be the first big-time announcement event from Sony since E3 in June.

PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Round 2 please!

Edit: On a side note. I wish they wouldve stuck with the name "Title Fight" instead. Just sounds better IMO.

Not exactly what I'd call a big show.

@Xristophoros: Hidden Agenda this month although a smaller game about a serial killer and The Inpatient a VR title in November both from the Until Dawn guys. Speaking of exclusives what the hell happened to Deep Down? Capcoms game.

@gamingdevil800: Deep Down had a beta in Japan a couple of years ago and hasn't been heard of since. I'm guessing it's dead but no one is willing to admit it.

On the plus side there's going to be an awesome new Monster Hunter game next year!

@gamingdevil800: Not coming this year, but in March we will be releasing Frantics as part of the PlayLink line-up, from NapNok Games.

It's a party game where, more than being the most skilled player at games, you need to be great at playing other players. So basically quick alliances with other players and backstabbing when they least expect it.

We'll start giving it a much bigger push as we get closer to the launch dates.

@garysan: Well the developer is obviously under pressure now due to fornites battle royale now on PS4 plus fortnite is going free at the start of next year. Their overall reaction to the Fornite mode was pretty bad.

I feel like if they come out with a ps5 announcement then it'll be more like telling us our computer is out of it's time so time for some new hardware upgrades.... I mean it's nice and all but they can still get a lot more great games out for ps4 with the current spec.. unless they want to do a PS4 pro premium edition or something... Or maybe even ps4vita which they will also not support

@Jimbowesker: I hate to be a downer but don't count on LAST OF US PART 2 to be there they will probably save it for PSX and worst case E3 2018. I guess it can't hurt to hope.

@dimetro7: go away......we don;t need another boring ass similar to state of decay zombie horde game with boring story......

all it is, is...eww where do we take Syphon Filter next??? meh too hard, let's do zombies, that's easy....

at this point a simple mindless Twisted Metal done up like the older games would be fun or the last Wipeout might have done well on PS4 but we may never know.....

now would have been the perfect time to reintroduce Gabe Logan [Syphon Filter] now that MGS is finished as a thing....with all the other stealth games being murder fests, playing a sanctioned spy using real stealth mechanics would be fun.....

is it so bad that I just wanna taze a mofo so long he ignites on fire???

Besides the games I really hope they announce a price drop to $350 for the PS4 Pro leading to bundles on Black Friday!

@cfscorpio: Probably almost guaranteed, to increase the price gap between the xbox one x and pro to potentially sway more customers.

@gamingdevil800: Exactly. As great as the Xbox One X hardware is, it'll be a hard sell to prove to people that it is $150 more value than the PS4 Pro. I want the X but not at that price and not with the lineup of exclusives I see next year.

@cfscorpio: to be honest, ps5 is not too far off. my guess is 18 months or so. might as well wait it out -- i'm sure ps5 will also upscale ps4 games and be fully backwards compatible.

@Xristophoros: I doubt PS5 will land any sooner than late 2019. 2020 seems best. Why should Sony cut short a generation that they have such a huge lead in?

@cfscorpio: i think there will be a greater sense of urgency with the x1x hitting shelves this year and putting ps4 pro at a fairly large disadvantage, graphically. sony won't like that situation much from a marketing standpoint.

@Xristophoros: From a marketing standpoint it'll be difficult for MS to show the graphical advantage to consumers. Most people will still have a base PS4 and the Sony exclusives always look great on it.

@cfscorpio: For one, devs and gamers are already complaining current gen consoles aren't strong enough to handle new games. For another, 8k is bigger than 4k. Gotta sell them buzzwords!

When you have this big a lead and are making a profit on every console you sell, you can afford to release the next big thing while you're still the hottest thing in the market.

@Barighm: There is no way that Sony would sell a 8k console. The cost would be ridiculous. Devs don't seem to be complaining about the Switch's power anymore. They seem to like the sales. Higher specs means higher development costs. Yes, devs do want to push the envelope and they are making higher spec versions for PC but they really are beholden to profits over anything else.

I just don't see a PS5 as the next big thing. The iterative model is best in today's market. MS has the right idea there but they are behind by a lot, all Sony needs to do is to beat them at their own game. They can announce PS1, PS2 and PS3 game backwards compatibility, trickling out games to pad their already dominant library. The next gen can come in 2020 or whenever MS is ready to move on it. Both companies should make it so that next gen games run on the mid gen consoles we have now.
