Watch the gamescom Press Conference Live

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Aug 16, 2011 // 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 on August 16th, 2011 at 8:17 am said:

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.

25

+ lisatsunami on August 16th, 2011 at 8:38 am said:

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 on August 16th, 2011 at 8:38 am said:

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


27

+ DeathGazer on August 16th, 2011 at 8:38 am said:

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


28

+ BlazingD on August 16th, 2011 at 8:39 am said:

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

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


36

+ FunkyTable on August 16th, 2011 at 9:04 am said:

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.


37

+ Zezzler on August 16th, 2011 at 9:04 am said:

+ lisatsunami on August 16th, 2011 at 9:12 am said:

@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.


41

+ igorrocks2 on August 16th, 2011 at 9:13 am said:

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 :)

+ lisatsunami on August 16th, 2011 at 9:17 am said:

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?

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

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.
