I admit, I thought this year's Sony TGS presser was going to be a snore-fest save a quirky game or two.
Boy! I'm so glad I was wrong. I was floored with how many games and announcements Sony was able to roll out. I mean, they have Paris Games Week and PSX later this year, so surely, they can't have any bullets left after E3, right?
Apparently, they do! While we got our fair share of JP-only games, Western audiences got what they were hoping for and then some. PS4 price cut? Check! PS4 face plates? You betcha! Oh, and one thing it trumped E3 on? Sony showed some Vita love during its TGS presser! I loved that and I hope it continues.
Needless to say, I can't wait what surprises Sony has in store for us at Paris Games Week and PSX.
I think Sony's TGS conference was slightly better than its E3 presentation. Gravity Rush remaster, Gravity Rush 2, and Bloodborne sales + expansion are just a few of the many announcements that stood out to me. The one thing I did gather from social media was that people really want Sony to help bring some of the titles on display to the West. And I agree. That'll be the icing on the cake, really.
I was very pleased with Sony's TGS 2015 press conference. While a lot of the announcements were already known (Gravity Rush 2, Hot Shots Golf PS4), it was still great to see that the projects were alive and coming soon. It was well worth staying up late to watch!
I think Sony has finally got a handle on how to properly pull off an impressive conference. It is all about the games and Sony has proven again, just like they did at E3, that they have some amazing looking games in the pipeline. There was a little bit of everything shown off, from Hot Shots Golf to Yakuza, and almost everything shown looked interesting to me.
I really didn't expect to hear as much news as I did, considering how close Paris Games Week and PlayStation Experience are! More announcements for new games made me very happy indeed, especially those coming to the PS Vita!
Like everyone else, I was also taken aback by Sony's strong TGS 2015 showing, and I think the company's decision to forego gamescom really paid off dividends. A substantial 10% price cut for PlayStation 4 may be a symptom of Japan's ailing console market, but at least it can be seen as a statement of intent as Sony looks to ratchet up that worldwide install base.
