I just want Snake Eater announcement and Spider Man gameplay
I have a feeling you will be very happy tomorrow then
GTA V Remixed Remake Sixth Edition Platinum Model for $79.99.
They're going to end the show with Knack III
It sucks that two of my favorite series,Spider-Man and Ratchet and Clank, are both made by insomniac so they both delay each others next installments.
Anything cool expected today or all still just rumored at this point?
Because so little has been actually acknowledged by Sony there's a lot that is guesswork, especially outside the first-party studios and known-entity third parties like Square Enix, FROM, etc.
Here's my guesses/hopes -
Metal Gear Solid 3 Remake – This has been talked about so much at this point it’s almost certainly real. With the rumored deal between Konami and Sony opening the floodgates for remakes, it’s perfectly sensible to start with the chronological first game of their most popular series. But who will be making it? Bluepoint is Sony’s first-party remake specialist, but this could be an internal Konami project too.
Team Asobi’s new game – Everyone assumes this will be a new AstroBot game, and I’m hoping they’re right because Sony desperately needs a mascot platformer of the quality that was teased with PS5’s pack-in title. The real question is, will it be PSVR2 exclusive, only for flat-screeners, or both?
Final Fantasy 16 release trailer – With just over a month until this massive title drops, we’re certainly going to get a release trailer, if for no other reason than Sony wanting to wave its console-exclusive foam finger around a bit. Most fans don’t want to see more at this point, but Sony won’t be able to resist.
Lots of PSVR2 – This is known to be a big part of the showcase, but with Jim Ryan recently saying it’s too early to judge the success of PSVR2, expect to see Sony go hard with new games for their latest peripheral. The question is, will any of it be 1st party content, and have they managed to convince Valve to let them port Half-Life: Alyx?
More PC ports – Sony didn’t buy Nixxes to let them sit on the sidelines, so I think they will show at least one or two new PC ports. Demons’ Souls and Ghost of Tsushima are the biggest first-party games that still haven’t gotten the PC treatment (The Last of Us Part 2 as well, but after how Part 1’s port has gone, I think Sony will take more time with that one).
Housemarque’s new game revealed – The Finnish studio has confirmed they are working on a new IP, and while it won’t be a return to their twin-stick glory days, expect something that plays to a combination of their strengths after proving they can pull off a AAA game like Returnal.
Cory Barlog’s new game – Sony Santa Monica is fresh off their release of God of War: Ragnarok, but we all know superstar director Cory Barlog has been percolating something for much longer than that. Barlog is one of Sony’s most recognizable talents and this feels like the perfect time to show what he and his team have been working on, which will create a huge splash no matter what it turns out to be.
New Uncharted game – This was almost certainly teased in Sony’s recent commercial campaign, and it seems like the right time for Uncharted to make a triumphant return and be acknowledged for real. It will be very interesting, and important to the discourse that will follow the game, to see who is developing one of gaming’s most recognized IP.
Kingdom Hearts 4 new trailer – Sony and Square Enix are as close a publisher and third-party developer can be, so where else would we expect to see Kingdom Hearts 4 get its true reveal?
Don’t Hold Your Breath
NCAA College Football ’25 revealed – Only one year away from the truly massive return of this franchise, it’s definitely time to see what EA is working on. But the publisher isn’t one to play favorites in the console space, so while it would be a massive get, it’s more likely NCAA is revealed at a platform-agnostic event later this summer.
Persona 6 revealed – While the franchise has a long history with Sony, Atlus seems to be cuddling much closer to Microsoft these days, so I would be very surprised to see this before next month’s Xbox showcase.
Pragmata re-revealed – After debuting at Sony’s PS5 reveal showcase in 2020 and then announcing in 2021 that the game was delayed until 2023, there’s been less than zero heard about this gorgeous but enigmatic title. Capcom is on such a roll that I could see it happening, but that’s just blind faith at this point. The company may be too busy with Street Fighter 6 and the piles of money they are making on Resident Evil remasters to care about this one yet.
I don't think we'll see what Santa Monica has in store just yet. It's only been 6 months since Ragnarok.
And no way we'll see NCAA. If anything EA will show that at their show whenever that is.
Show me hollow knight silksong
I’m Neva gonna play that shit
Stop with the kids games
This has been super boring so far.
stop doing remakes. please
Unless it’s Bloodborne
Fuck yeah Venom
Announcements are cool and all, but where’s the damn gameplay? Like 3 games actually showed gameplay.
I give that show a 0/10. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect it to suck like that. Absolutely nothing surprising shown. Very little gameplay. What a dud.
I’m just never gonna care about the vr shit
Alan Wake 2 though
Never heard of it
thanks I hated it
TEASERS TEASERS TEASERS
I see now why Sony hasn't done one for two years. They had nothing to show and apparently still don't.
like either team up with studios to announce a bunch of major games / reveal gameplay, or just don't do that shit.
Stop crying about content you losers
this is a weird take.
don't expect better presentations or better insight into the games you might want to buy in the future. Sony is doing their best!!
Not that weird, just logged in to see updates and instead see lots of bitching
I've tried to have an open mind with the resurgence of VR, but it just isn't doing anything for me. I'd rather sit my lazy ass on a couch and play games on a TV.
the bitching is a reaction to the showcase. if you just want the details, google it
The issue is Sony usually nails their showcases, bc they get to show off their 1st party stuff. There was nearly none of that.
At this point, I have no clue why they won't acknowledge Bloodborne and at least give it a PS5 patch. A little disappointed that some of the other big studios didn't have stuff to show, but whatever. There were plenty of games that they showed that looked good, so I'm sitting around a 6/10. Helldivers II looks like Arrowhead is trying to go the Housemarque route. If the fun factor of the first game translates well into 3rd person, then this will be a really good 4 player co-op shooter. Phantom Blade Zero is right up my alley, as is Plucky Squire. I wish Immortals of Aveum looked more interesting, because the combat looks like a better Ghostwire: Tokyo. Too bad the setting isn't as cool as spooky Tokyo. Also yes to Spider-Man 2, Alan Wake 2, Snake Eater (never played the original), FFXVI, and Marathon.
Their shift to gaas is concerning.
This Q thing and VR seem like such wastes of resources to me.
Really want to see another Housemarque game. Returnal co-op is probably one of my favorite next gen experiences. Also, gimme another Ghost of Tsushima already
its basically a direct inverse correlation of "how good of a gaming show it is" vs "how many new space games are we crapping out this time in said game show"
I just finished Uncharted 4. Great series. I want another.
Downloading the 3 Tomb Raider games now. On an adventure kick right now.
Any other suggestions?
Are the 2 Lord of the Rings games fun? I downloaded them but haven’t started them.
Yes shadow of war and shadow of Mordor are both fun
Speaking of LotR, IGN gave the Gollum game a 4, lol.
It’s sitting at a robust 40 on metacritic also
Can't say I expected anything different. Seemed to get almost no hype leading up to its release.
Nobody ever was asking for a game where we plays as Gollum.
Each Tomb Raider game sadly gets worse. First one is amazing, 2nd one is also very good. Didn’t care for the 3rd
Hate that Jedi Survivor gets lumped into those. It's legitimately a great video game that had some performance issues at launch, but is filled with great combat, movement, characters, world, and story. I can't recommend it enough.
If it wasn't an EA game it probably would have been given another 6 months and been great at launch.
