    I wish I could have gone to PSX. Though I’m almost feeling like I have met them now that they’ve butchered my username. :P In classic PS Blogcast fashion. :D

    Though my name is really just Makai (netherworld or demon) Ōkami (Wolf or Wolf God) both of which were some of my favorite PS2 games.

    A second O was added for uniqueness and for stylistic reasons no one cares about.

Cant wait to listen, had a blast at psx trying out ps vr, it’s an amazing experience and I will be anticipating the day I can bring one home. With so many great games I have to say my favorite thing was the FInal Fantasy Vii remake trailer. I was so excited I purchased the ps one version on the ps4 and to my surprise it came with what I think is the best ps4 theme to date. Great job overall with the conference everyone on the PlayStation team and all the dev and publisher team members. P.s. San Fransisco is $$$$$

I loved PSX, and I thought you all did a fantastic job! And the games! My goodness! Considering that this was the 4th major show this year, I was surprised to see so many announcements, and they all look outstanding!!

It has been re-iterated that it is very difficult to advertise PSVR, but I have a way that I belive that would both be applicable to many game types, as well as effective. I’m not seeking anything but would love to share it. How would I get in touch with someone (phone, email, etc) to communicate the idea?

PSX 2016 was terrific. Hope to see it again next year. My favorite surprise announcement was ni no kuni 2. I my show floor favorites were shadow of the beast, umbrella corps, eve valkyrie on PS VR. Plus many more.

When will more PS2 games become available for PS4?! You’ve got to have noticed that this is something the community wants as that blog post has thousands of comments on it. Probably the most viral playstation blog post ever.

    Not when they have no online multiplayer! That rules out all the Socom games which are by far the most requested. Releasing Twisted Metal Black without online was pointless.

What about Ninokuni 2 and Ace Combat 7 ? You guys should talk about that too :3.

You really need to bring PlayStation Experience to Boston next year. That way I have an actual chance to be there.

PSX was really special and fun few days. Thanks for all of the hard work and for being so great about saying hi. It was really cool to take a quick picture. Thanks for all the hard work

PSP has crisis core, 3, 4 and so on…

Ps3 has 13 and its seques and ports and remakes

Vita has 10 and 3 as a PSP

    And believe it or not there was a Final Fantasy game on the PlayStation pocket. Or pocket station or whatever it was called. It was a chocobo game that worked as a companion to Final Fantasy 8

Im with you guys on the dream thing I’m also a very vivid dreamer. I often have nightmares about places from my childhood and then when I wake up I’m like oh thank god lol.

Also, the Rick and Morty episode Ryan was talking about if you pay attention in the background during the credits scene it says coming soon Roy 2: Dave

On Yakuza, since there was some confusion about some of its games:

Yakuza Zero is a prequel to the first Yakuza game. You may have confused it with Yakuza Kiwami, which is a PS4 remake of the first game and is coming out in Japan this January.

i’ve definitely seen some negativity about the keynote, but overall, i thought it was great. the only things disappointing were the lack of a ps:vr price point/release date, and the ff7 trailer (which visually looked amazing, but was killed by the real time battle system and the episodic announcement).

can’t wait for yakuza zero, day of the tentacle, full throttle, nioh, and a lot of the other games that made an appearance.

Loved the Final Fantasy 7 trailer, but, it would have been hard for me not to have.

It got me so excited, that when Steam offered a revised version of Lightning Returns yesterday for less than $20, I found myself buying it, to test it out.

Let’s just say, No return needed.

All the hater’s about a real time battle system, need to learn to change with the times.
( Lightning Returns is almost a combination of the two, and I still love it )

-Because nothing beats spamming the attack button (X), with little, to no strategy involved.

You can’t say you hate it, if you never tried it.

( I have been around since Atari, that doesn’t mean I can not appreciate the changes that have been made to consoles since )

Welcome back gentlemen! I usually do not remember any of my dreams, but I have noticed that days I am not waking up to an alarm clock (or other outside interruptions) I can recall certain major or minor details of that dream. Very strange to say the least. I am currently relapsing a 17 year old addiction known as Final Fantasy VII, and I’m loving it to say the least. Happy Holidays to all from Stuart in Texas (StuTX)!

Great show guys! A fun way to relive the excitement of PSX’s reveals all over again :-)

Ok seriously you guys are awesome but you have had a super annoying popping sound in your audio for like the past 3 months or something. You guys even mentioned the first time it appeared but it has been present in nearly every episode since then. It’s faint but once you hear it you cannot unhear it and it is really irritating.

So recently on PS4 I was given the option to “follow” the profiles of certain people in the industry. All 4 of you were on the list so naturally, I accepted. As you guys are the public face and voice of Playstation I found it sad and was a little heartbroken that both Sarcey Sid and Powerhouse hide their trophies, while Justin and Triple A bear theirs proudly. What gives?
