Watch the gamescom Press Conference Live

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar Posted by Sr. Social Media Manager

Guten tag from Cologne, Germany, home of gamescom! The motto for 2011’s gamescom is “Celebrate the Games,” and we’re about to do that beginning with the Sony Computer Entertainment Europe press conference. The presser kicks off at 7pm local time, which is 1pm Eastern and 10am Pacific.

A note while you’re watching* today: much like E3 is targeted to the US audience and Tokyo Game Show is targeted at Japan, the gamescom press conference is primarily aimed at European gamers, so please keep that in mind as you watch. Not everything mentioned or shown today will necessarily apply to those of us in North America. We’ll post on all appropriate things for the North American market, however, just as we always do.

So with that in mind, press Play in the video screen below, sit back and see the future of PlayStation as laid out by SCEE CEO and President Andrew House.

If you miss any of today’s fun, the entire conference will play on a loop for the next 24 hours. As always, we want to hear your reactions in the comments and we look forward to bringing you closer to gamescom 2011 throughout this week. Look for more stories here on PlayStation.Blog very soon!

*We’ve got a special tab running at PlayStation’s Facebook page. If you’d like to watch socially, that’s the place for you.

Really excited for the conference! Can’t wait to hear more about the Vita’s launch titles.

FunkyTable said:

August 16th, 8:17 am

I hope to find out what non-gaming features the Vita (which means life) can do. A name like life implies it can do a whole lot more than play video games. I hope it’s the media hub that can rival other devices.

BJtheLegend said:

lisatsunami said:

August 16th, 8:38 am

Yes, looking forward to watching this live & then reading your blog posts about the conference. We’ll learn about games and other PS features the Euro gamers will get before us–fodder for more complaints from some of us.

But you know that. ;-)

BJtheLegend said:

August 16th, 8:38 am

as in it’ll be aimed at the United Kingdom…so yes, it’ll be in English. just like all the previous Gamescons.

DeathGazer said:

August 16th, 8:38 am

PS3 price drop hopefully. It deserves to sell more, especially in the US.

BlazingD said:

August 16th, 8:39 am

I wonder if Sony would give an update that would allow us to delete certain trophy data.

Type-F- said:

August 16th, 8:44 am

NekoNiv said:

August 16th, 8:52 am

etc860 said:

August 16th, 8:54 am

Sweet!!! Please give us some new features,and not just for Plus members : )

Link01 said:

August 16th, 8:55 am

Fingers crossed for a Vita release date, and maybe some Last Guardian info!

Thebig444 said:

August 16th, 8:56 am

Cross-game chat would be cool

blackghost826 said:

August 16th, 9:02 am

Hopefully some new ps vita games and features, planning on buying it if it sounds better than the ipod 5th.

VectorRaven said:

August 16th, 9:03 am

PS3 price drop? More VITA announcements? More Move support? I’m ready…

FunkyTable said:

August 16th, 9:04 am

Also, I really hope we get to see some new PS Move titles and the return of Sorcery. Europe recieved the Playstation Move much better than the USA, so here’s hoping.

Just one more hour, I’m so excited.

Zezzler said:

August 16th, 9:04 am

I hope that there is tons of new awesome Vita news shown today!

ninjaluke84 said:

August 16th, 9:06 am

Looking forward to a Vita launch date in the US and hopefully I know it’s a long shot but announcing along with square that Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep is finally coming to PSN so I can get it on my PSP Go.

tazmania91 said:

August 16th, 9:11 am

So Cool !!! Hope to see Don’t Nod Entertainment and Quantic Dream ! Vive la France !

lisatsunami said:

August 16th, 9:12 am

@27, yes, watching live in Home is just for the Euro members. That was my understanding. We’re just third party observers here in the US.

igorrocks2 said:

August 16th, 9:13 am

Jef, man we always can import it to North America – PS3 Region FREE… So there nothing we can’t get that we like… Unlike XBOX360 :)

Syrlis said:

August 16th, 9:13 am

Thebig444 said:

August 16th, 9:16 am

Uncharted 3 new traillers

lisatsunami said:

August 16th, 9:17 am

Hey, I’m watching the gamescom feed from their official website and unless I’m having a stroke, it’s in German, not English. I guess the English part comes later?

chris_pk said:

August 16th, 9:18 am

I’m hoping David cage show’s Quantic dreams next project , sony show off some new ps vita features and a release date for eu and america + a last guardian update would be cool

igorrocks2 said:

August 16th, 9:18 am

nYcFrEeWiLL82 said:

August 16th, 9:18 am

just waiting on news from Hello Games…bout that new Joe Danger game…i hope its a 2d scroller or 3d action..something FUN and CHALLENGING like Joe Danger. Also i hope they finaly release a preview of AGENT..the most long awaited Rockstar ps3 exclusive…im already alil disappointed that it takes place in the 1930’s since im all about the future military guns … but if they did that good with Red Dead..then i just might give it a shot :p

Falaut said:

August 16th, 9:18 am

*patiently sits and waits*

all I want is some HUGE Gran Turismo 5 update/DLC news, and new game announcements…ahem, and some Agent would be nice…

Zacky-V-A7X said:

new U3 demo please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Falaut said:

August 16th, 9:21 am

or how about some Borderlands 2 PS3 news: Move/Sharpshooter support…PSV Continuation Play *wink*. I will continue to dream that Mr.Pitchford will fall and hit his head on the corner of a coffee table and release a Move/Sharpshooter patch for the first one. ^_^ j/k…well, about the coffee table part.
