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.

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.



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.

+ allwasgood on August 14th, 2012 at 10:39 am said:

Can someone confirm if he said “all” Ps1 classics on the 28th? I and others thought we heard that, but we’re not sure and Joystiq keeps reporting it’s a gradual rollout(but only using themselves as a source).

Does anyone have a link to a stream you can rewind or a confirmation that he said “all” (or not)?

This has to be the most boring PlayStation press conference ever. Anywhere. Ever.


66

+ Sevyne on August 14th, 2012 at 10:44 am said:

Oh look EU PS Plus getting yet ANOTHER full retail title. We’ll probably get Galaga or some nonsense.


67

Agree with @65


74

+ Benmo316 on August 14th, 2012 at 10:47 am said:

Sony is killing it! VITA has been represented very well! But hasn’t Sony learned from E3, Wonderbook isn’t a focal point, you don’t need another 20 minute segment!


75

+ Agitokazu on August 14th, 2012 at 10:48 am said:

So no gameplay for black ops declassified -_- or any mention of zombie mode, and it’s coming out in a few months :/… How will this sell vitas? I can see little big planet, ragnarok, ratchet and clank, playstation allstars, and killzone selling… But not blacks ops with so lil info


76

+ LVJ4RROD on August 14th, 2012 at 10:50 am said:

I agree with chris_tane! This conference is a train wreck of children’s titles and handheld. Also, everyone has played RDR!? Infamous 2 and LBP2 was nice, but the Plus announcement from E3 is already loosing steam. The only thing Wonderbook is good for is getting me to sleep.


77

+ cortiz2092000 on August 14th, 2012 at 10:50 am said:

Agreed with 74


78

+ Poloniumized on August 14th, 2012 at 10:52 am said:

Anyone remember when wonderbook didn’t kill a presentation? Yeah, me neither.

+ WolfAm1 on August 14th, 2012 at 10:54 am said:

Sony really needs to learn how to manage their time in these conferences. Focus more time on exclusives not 3rd party sports games and god damn Wonderbook. No wonder the company is failing.


81

+ DeathGazer on August 14th, 2012 at 10:54 am said:

Please tell me we’re getting RDR in US as well.

We didn’t get Deus Ex, Darksiders, or Dead Space 2…SO AT LEAST GIVE US RDR!!!!


82

+ ItaChu on August 14th, 2012 at 10:55 am said:

i hope red dead redemption is for us as well…. but i guess well have to wait till ghe day before the store updates to know cuz thats the us strategy now lol keeping us guessing and in the dark

Too bad I already have it…


86

I want to see something that amazes me.


87

+ LVJ4RROD on August 14th, 2012 at 11:05 am said:

I agree with 84 and another children’s game!? Also, this game will make little children cry.


88

+ LVJ4RROD on August 14th, 2012 at 11:07 am said:

Finally!? The Last of Us, but it seems like the same footage with music over it.


89

+ Rev_Doom on August 14th, 2012 at 11:07 am said:

Didn’t look any more like a children’s game than LBP. Very creative, reminded me of Tim Burton. I’ll be picking it up


90

+ WolfAm1 on August 14th, 2012 at 11:11 am said:

wow COD looks like a psp game…


91

+ Type-F- on August 14th, 2012 at 11:11 am said:

Is there a replay button? :( I just got on and saw the ending of COD for VITA. Please say yes T-T

I really wish you guys said you were doing this earlier this week or even last week.


93

No zombies in Blops Declassified?


94

Weak!


96

Whoa! What a great conference with a lot of surprises!


97

+ chris_tane on August 14th, 2012 at 11:13 am said:

Until Dawn looks promising. The Last Of Us looks just as good as it did before. Nothing else of interest for me though. Almost an hour wasted with Vita, Plus and , even worse, that ridiculous Wonderbook. Meh.


98

+ Kamii786 on August 14th, 2012 at 11:14 am said:

Sorry but that was dissapointing, waste of one hour.


99

+ gamer_316 on August 14th, 2012 at 11:14 am said:

for Cross Buy would it be possible to get the retail version of the Vita game? like buy the PS3 or Vita version @ the store & get the other retail version for free?

Just so you guys know, we’re NOT getting Red Dead Redemption. Apparently only Europe gets new full games.
