    Looking forward to Tales of Zestiria, Persona 5 and Disgaea 5.

  • ReveurIngenu

    Is this their TGS conference, or is it some kind of pre-conference or extra conference? I don’t understand why it’s taking place so early. Will there be a traditional conference a few days before TGS or is this it?

  • Dkmariolink

    I expect it to be The Last Guardian.

    • Sion12


    • Anontastic

      Nah dude, they’re gonna announce Half-Life 4 ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)‎

      • darke

        Apparently episodic gaming was cool back when HL2EP1 was released. >.>

  • PS4

    I am a bit confused at what the point of this conference will be? Why have an extra conference in the middle of E3, gamescom and TGS?

    To me their past two press conferences have felt light on big games, not an indie fan myself, though they do have a lot of nice looking ones lately…

    I just can’t see what they’d prefer to show off in a seperate conference less than 3 weeks before TGS, don’t spread your announcements too much sony, or I’ll start passing on actually watching the conferences and go straight for the trailers that interest me xD (and thus losing the ability to change my mind on titles I’d write off subconsciously, which is what I like about watching a full conference)

    • Anontastic

      Who knows. TGS becomes less of a big-time press event every year, so it might actually be to their advantage to grab a spotlight now and make some announcements if they have something interesting they want to show off during the event itself.

      • kenshee

        Yeah in fact, after reading up on some forums, it seems I was mistaken and this would actually be considered sony’s TGS conference, they just don’t call it that, and they won’t have yet another conference at TGS or anything. (not 100% on this ofc, but it’d make more sense)

        Definitely looking forward to this then, sort of a now or never feeling I get from some games like ff XV and persona 5, the former because it’s been over a year since they showed it and persona cause it’s coming out winter 2014 in Japan.

  • Josef217

    my guess is that its the ps3 price cut, i know it ain’t new but sometimes they make pointless announcements…maybe the price reduction will be worldwide announcement? who know, I just hope its a new IP or cough cough The Last Guardian!!!!!! :(

    • Christopher C

      a ps3 is still cheaper in NA than Japan. I’ve seen $200 ps3s in gamestop, and it’s like 280 in japan.

  • Juan Manuel M. Suárez

    Please be PSV related, please be PSV related~.

  • Lansou Everett

    It probably won’t be Vita related. most of the games that thing gets are from 3rd party supporters, and Sony has recently said they wanna make the PS4 more appealing for Japan, so yeah, no doubt in my mind that it’s a PS4 announcement. and i hope i’m right, I wanna get a PS4 but i won’t until it has some nice JRPGs.

    • Ric Vazquez

      Same here, needs moar JRPG!

  • It’s been some time now since I get excited over a gaming event and then Sony announces irrelevant things I don’t care about. I’ll come in this one not expecting anything, so then maybe I’ll get surprised.

  • Lemski07


  • ableh

    another bullshit again ? vita as PS4 Accessories ?

    • Technically, it would be more BS.

  • れいか

    As much as I want this to be Vita Content related, the chances are pretty slim. They are in the middle of promoting PS4 right now, especially PS4. If we may have games announced for the PS Vita, I’ll be welcoming the game with open arms. :)

    I keep my expectations low though… as what my past experience tells me.

    • JoJo_718

      Well, it may be good for the VIta, after all they said that TGS will focus on PS4, what if this is like a nintendo direct dedicated to the vita?

      • れいか

        I really hope so… :S

  • tkempin

    So you’re saying there’s a chance…

  • Ric Vazquez

    Persona 5, Tales of Zestiria, any other nice JRPG announcement will do for me.

    • Kornelious

      Boy I sure hope so!

  • Impressionnant

    Funny if it was just a new ps4 design.

  • Spider-Man

    I want more info about Bloodborne. And Dragonball Xenoverse! And Godzilla! AND VITA GAMES!

  • Audie Bakerson

    I hope the girl who translated everything last year returns.

    Quit talking, be serious!

  • Kornelious

    I have a felling that this’ll just be more PS4 stuff…..though it should still be interesting nonetheless

  • Allen

    I bet more 2.0 info inc!!

  • Aristides

    I wan’t to know what Sony’s next PSV efforts will entitle =D

    • Job For A [S]unjay

      Sony announced that they’ve given up on the Vita.

      • WhyWai

        – in the west market.

  • criperro

    Hi, if someone could explain me this:

    As far as I know TGS 2014 starts con Sep. 18, so there will not be any conference during that week like we are used to in E3 and Gamescom? Or will there be another conference during TGS week?

  • HelloACiDDD

    aside from wanting more vita games or promoting vita in a conference
    if it’s PS4 backwards compatibility through PSN Games and not Playstation Now

  • WhyWai

    For those who asking for more Vita games. Vita have many games released and releasing in Japan. And since this is Japan event, so new games announced here most probably will not reach you just like all those Japanese games… LOL
