Guten Tag from Cologne, Germany! The doors to gamescom 2012, the world’s largest gaming event, officially open tomorrow, but the news and announcements start today. PlayStation’s gamescom press conference should certainly be of interest to gamers in North America, and fortunately the timing of the evening event means that you can watch it as it happens. We’re streaming it live right here, beginning at 1pm Eastern/10am Pacific:



If you don’t see the video above this sentence, please refresh your page. It should then appear.

Note: if you’re viewing this post on a mobile device, please go to gamescom.eu.playstation.com to view the live stream.

Once the main show has wrapped, there’ll then be a short break before our VIP panel gets underway, which will also be streamed live. Some of the brightest minds in video game development will be taking to the stage to weigh in on the “games as art” debate, including Sony Worldwide Studios President Shuhei Yoshida, LittleBigPlanet co-creator Alex Evans and thatgamecompany co-founder Kellee Santiago. If you’d like to get a question in on the panel, you can Tweet to us including the #PSGC Twitter hashtag.

At the conclusion of the livestream, you’ll want to refresh the PlayStation.Blog and take another look; we’ll have filled it with stories and trailers from the titles you just saw on stage. We’ll keep the gamescom train rolling all week, with hands-on previews, interviews, and a special podcast from the event. It’s going to be a good week – we hope to see you frequently.

Hey Jeff,

Since you’re in Germany, any great food you’ve been indulging yourself in like the poutine you had up here in Canada? =P

Thanks for the live feed, I’ll be watching. =)

Three things I’d love to see:

1) The immediate release of firmware 1.8 for Vita (PS1 Games, yay!)
2) The increase of space for cloud saving (at least 512 MB)
3) A Kingdom Hearts HD Collection (I know this one is far fetched – if it’s coming, it will probably be at TGS)

These 3 things would make my day, my week and my month.

+ Thwip on August 14th, 2012 at 9:09 am said:

Looking forward to watching…thanx! Hoping for some exciting Vita news, and maybe an out of the box (not already leaked) All Stars character or two.

URGENT!!!!! TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN ! THE VIDEO REFRESH ISNT WORKING AND STIL SAYING FLASH PLAYER IS NOT RIGHT. YOU MIGHT WANT TO FIX THIS BEFORE THE LIVE FEED.

+ Redrox on August 14th, 2012 at 9:14 am said:

If this site doesn’t work you can try http://gamescom.eu.playstation.com/ That should work for everybody…

and yeah we all love Jeff, don’t have to mention that :)

@4 I so agree, I would pay top $ to get the cloud saving space increased. Unfortunately one LBP Profile for me is about 35MB and with 150MB total I ALWAYS run out of space. Please Sony/Jeff could there be at leeast a paid option to increase the space?

@FooBear: They have already said cross game chat is never coming. It has something to do with the system memory.

Hey Jeff,
I just want to say thank you for letting us fans attend e3 a couple of months ago. You guys at Playstation are truly awesome. :)

+ LJPvonzity on August 14th, 2012 at 9:25 am said:

I hope I see inFAMOUS 3 as one of the unannounced games. Don’t tell me what happened at the end of the second one. The lighting bolt theory can still be true. I’m also looking for the release date of Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time and the next two PS: All Stars characters, hopefully Crash and Spyro, but if it’s a no Activision is to blame and yet I believe it’s a no. Regardless, the Sony conference won’t fail us.

I want to see some great announcements at this event and I am glad that it is being streamed live. Hope everyone on the blog team that is out in Germany is having a great time. I can’t wait for some more Vita love. I hope Sony shows off some new stuff here and does announce a new game or two for the PS3. I’ll be waiting in anticipation. Knock are socks off Sony.

Sold.
