Gamescom 2013 Live: Watch the PlayStation Conference Today

Sid Shuman's Avatar Posted by

Director, SIEA 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!

Really wish the idiots running the camera would keep the focus on the screen not the back of the guys head or the bloggers onsite. Just Saying.

What streaming service are they using? I’m getting absolutely nothing, just a black box with an empty title bar across the bottom. Not sure if my network is blocking it or it’s not working at the other end.

What idiot is in charge of camera angles??? Could you get any farther away, or show less? I don’t think so. Keep up the good work.

Why in the world would they keep cutting away from the screen DURING GAME PLAY VIDEO?!? We don’t care that you have a camera set up on a crane to get wide shots of the auditorium. During game play videos, we want to see the video!!

lbp hub….ill keep watching

tgMan69 said:

Aside from the idiotic decision to cut away from game play video to show wide shots, the lighting on the stage is horrid. This shouldn’t be a day we can complain about! This is crazy!

CommandingTiger said:

I don’t like LBP, nor ANYTHING Media Molecule has to offer.
The Only thing I like about Media Molecule is the Play, Create, Share.
I hate the Shackboy, I hate Tearaway, I also hate Puppeteer, they are awful game design and taste…
Get something new than Sackboy for REAL Gamers, Please.
I love creating games, but I don’t want shackboy, I don’t want a platformer, I want it as easy as Mod Nation Racer but for an Mature Audience.

(Now if only whoever was live-caming this would stop freakin’ pano-shot out to the whole damn audience and keep is close to the stage CONSISTANTLY it’d be really more boss.)

Wow, Big Fest looks pretty boss (being a music lover and all)! That’s freakin’ cool you can do that w/ real bands.


August 20th, 10:35 am

omg! cheaper memory cards was all they needed to boost VITA SALES!!!

CommandingTiger said:

August 20th, 10:35 am

Yeah, They listened!
Price cut of the Vtia and it’s Memory Cards.

We know you invested a lot of R&D for the Memory Card for anti-piratage..
Well, just keep the same Memory Cards for the next portable device and recuperate the cost on a longer term.
Or use Mirco SD/ Micro Memory stick cards. But DON’T Have any other new expensive Memory Cards and you’re all set for Glory.

I won’t Be Paying For Plus Until I Know Why…After Paying 400 $’s Plus Tax! Also Will GTA V Be Moving To Ps4?

You can clearly see the OUYA influence right now. Both platform (Xbox One & PS4) understand that they need to gives love to indi developers because other wise they will lose a uge part of the gaming industry while OUYA will grow & grow bigger & bigger each year & updated graphic each time every year at a 100$ price point. I glad to see that the do not care only for big AAA games.

Johasthan said:

DestroyGalaxiees said:

August 20th, 10:57 am

What the hell is is with the cameras. If youre showing a trailer let us see the damn trailer, not the frickin’ audience.

SphonX said:
