Gamescom 2013 Live: Watch the PlayStation Conference Today

Sid Shuman's Avatar + Posted by Sid Shuman on Aug 20, 2013 // Senior Manager, Social Media

Guten tag! Gamescom, the world’s largest gaming event, officially opens its doors tomorrow. But the action begins today with PlayStation’s Gamescom press conference. And lucky you — you can watch live starting at 10:00am Pacific Time (1:00pm Eastern) today with our dedicated livestream!

A quick note: 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.

At the conclusion of the livestream, refresh PlayStation.Blog to see game trailers and in-depth details from many of the titles revealed on stage. There will be a lot of content to take in, so consider checking out our dedicated gamescom13 Blog tag so you don’t miss a thing! And we’ll keep the Gamescom train rolling all week long with hands-on previews, announcements, and interviews straight from the show floor. It should be a good (and busy!) week — please let us know your favorite picks in the comments! If you happen to miss the live show, no worries: the entire conference will play on a loop for the next 24 hours or so.

After the conference, stick around to see a live panel discussion featuring Worldwide Studios president (and Treasure Park master) Shuhei Yoshida, Beyond: Two Souls director David Cage and Assassin’s Creed writer Darby McDevitt for a lively discussion around storytelling and narrative development in game design. Should be a good one — don’t miss it!

And keep an eye on Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram all week long for an inside look at gamescom’s finest. We’ve got some great stuff planned — auf wiedersehen!

Hey Sid can you please confirm how long the press conference will be? as i understand it will be from 60-90 minutes but people on the playstation official forums are saying 3 hours because gametrailers is having a 3 hours coverage.

Sweetness! Is there going to be coverage of the show like E3 livestream or just the conference?

@10 onslaughtree you’re going to be seriously dissapointed with that list.

+ The-Greatest41 on August 20th, 2013 at 5:40 am said:

If we aren’t getting dedicated servers for all multiplayer games like Xbox One, than tell me why we are paying to pay online with Playstation Plus. You need to fix this and get dedicated servers or you will lose my PS4 pre-order.

@10 We know the vita is getting some love but man that list… wow i would love to see all those games on the vita but i dont think is happening man maybe inFAMOUS oh and im expecting Insomniac to announce that Into the Nexus is coming to psvita as well.

@10: “All Playstation 2 games playable on Vita.”

That would be pretty amazing if they ever did that. I know I would buy a bunch of digital PS2 games if that came to fruition.

Here it comes! 4 hours!

+ Sonicfan11589 on August 20th, 2013 at 6:01 am said:

Yeah if Sony does make PS2 Classics playable on Vita, we are definitely gonna need bigger memory cards at least in my opinion.

+ Dionysus-Jones on August 20th, 2013 at 6:01 am said:

I’ll be using this USTREAM conference to judge how well this service/provider will work on PS4.

I’m not familiar with USTREAM, so I hope it doesn’t disappoint from a technical standpoint…

I’m also hoping for a Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Vita bundle. I would love to surprise my brother with a Vita for Xmas.

Thanks for streaming here on the US blog, can’t wait to see what you anounce!

I’m hoping for PS4 release date and a lot of love for the Vita to help it rebound.

+ mastorofpuppetz on August 20th, 2013 at 6:16 am said:

Sony needs to step up there game, Launch lineup for PS4 is thin, way too much focus on PS3. Sony needs more exclusive games for PS4 and also elaborate on backwards compatibility using gaikai. Vita also needs more third party support, great device being let down by sparse software support.

Will sony ever make an RPG? Big void in Sony’s library.


27

+ mastorofpuppetz on August 20th, 2013 at 6:19 am said:

Also, Vita needs a price cut IN NA and a major reduction in memory card prices.

Im Kinda Tierd of Waiting For These Game Systems To Come Out So Please Release The PS4 Next Month

+ Elvick_ on August 20th, 2013 at 6:43 am said:

@26: Oh how I wish Sony would dip into RPGs again. Even Ubisoft is working on an RPG ffs. MS has Fable, Nintendo has Monilith Soft, Pokemon, various Mario RPGs, Sony has IPs that are rotting away with no support.

Look at Dark Souls to see how stupid Sony is about RPGs.That could have been Demon’s Souls.

+ Rainwater on August 20th, 2013 at 6:44 am said:

Really hoping some AAA games are announced for Vita. The Indie stuff is great but those aren’t the games I buy consoles for. Also, really hoping that Sony and Sega are working together to bring PSO 2 for Vita to US. Ridiculous that it hasn’t happened yet. Sony, you have a “Monster Hunter” sized hole in your Vita offerings that you really need to fill.

I’ll be here! It’ll be over my lunch break! :)

- Can we get the entire released PS3 retail library in digital form on the PSN?

- Also, a search function or sorting of some kind in the Download List, takes forever to find things so I can redownload them.

Thanks!!
