Sony planning “intriguing game announcements” this week

Gran Turismo 6? LittleBigPlanet 3? Hmm.

Sony will have “a busy week in the offing” this week with “some intriguing game announcements planned,” according to Sony Computer Entertainment Europe blog manager Fred Dutton.

Possible candidates? It’s been rumored the next iteration in the Gran Turismo series is in development, with multiple retailers listing Gran Turismo 6 for PlayStation 3. And back in April, it was rumored Sumo Digital was developing LittleBigPlanet 3 for the console.

Of course, we wouldn’t rule out new PlayStation 4 or PS Vita announcements either.

Thanks, TheSixthAxis.

    I was hoping for FFX HD release date

  • Adol Christin

    I really hope its more Vita games :)

  • 罪罰

    I want Gran Turismo 6 for PS4.

    • neo_firenze

      Wouldn’t be shocking to me to see it for both PS3 and PS4.

  • TheFoolArcana

    I hope they’re not a bunch of seque- pfffthahahahah yeah right

    • 罪罰

      sony dun rehash bruh, only nintendah
      can’t weit 4 gud of waroru 7

    • Elvick

      Nothing wrong with sequels. Sony balances new IPs and sequels well I think.

      The Last of Us
      Beyond: Two Souls
      Soul Sacrifice

      All new IPs in a year with sequels from Sony coming out too.

  • Chaos Raiden

    Final Fantasy Versus XIII, The Last Guardian, new Uncharted game for PS3 or PS4, and Yakuza 5 in English version. Either one would be awesome news.

  • Keegs79

    Personally, I am not a big racing fan so that doesn’t excite me. LittleBIGPlanet 3 is bound to happen. It would be nice if its a surprise that came from left field.

  • BigDix

    Gran Turismo 6 would be an “intriguing” announcement? …lol. Let’s hope their use of that word is not an outright lie.

  • Kris Tan

    Destiny of Souls — the English port of Toukiden

    • Solomon_Kano

      I’d rather Destiny of Souls be something else. Tecmo Koei’s been better than anybody else about localizing their Vita stuff, so there’s little doubt about Toukiden’s chances. If there were though… why go for such a drastic name change? No, hopefully that trademark is something completely new.

      • Kris Tan

        If the game is called Toukiden in here, no one knows what that mean and not buying it. Destiny of Souls is probably the closest description to the theme in Toukiden so I think it makes sense as the English name of the game.
        It would be even better if Sony/Koei makes a PS3 version of the game as well.

        • Solomon_Kano

          For one thing, Sony wouldn’t be trademarking the English name for Tecmo Koei’s game. That aside, people don’t need to know what Toukiden means to buy the game. Capcom didn’t change the name Okami for us to understand and people bought it on PS2, Wii, and PS3. Lastly, TK isn’t going to do a PS3 version just for the west when they’re already putting it on PSP and Vita. Wouldn’t be worthwhile.

          • Kris Tan

            Toukiden was co-developed by SCEJ and Omega Force, Sony put a lot of efforts to make the game cross-platform on PSP and VITA. I wouldn’t be surprised if SCEA publishes the VITA version outside Japan.


  • Adol Christin

    I wouldn’t mind a new Uncharted and Gravity Rush for my Vita :)

  • Tsukiru

    Gravity Rush 2, please! Or maybe a remake/sequel for The Legend of Dragoon? I’d take either.

    • kenshee

      liked this for legend of dragoon.

      More legend of dragoon please, Sony. Please. I’ve been hoping for this with every single unspecific Sony-based game announcement since I beat the original back when it came out…

  • AdachiTohru

    Please, a big ps vita announcement, please, show your support PLEASE !

  • Rafael Martines

    Final Fantasy Tactics HD with Online Multiplayers Missions *___*

    Well why not dream?

  • Kickersu18

    Yep i hope for a big Vita announcment, like the most here !

  • Solomon_Kano

    Aaaaaand the hype train is back, folks! Whoo!

    Hoping for Vita or PS4, though I expect we’ll be seeing a PS3 announcement.

  • Nice Boat

    I know! DmC 2: Donte’s aborti*shot*

    • Ritsujun

      DmC2:The Real Devil May Cry Prequel
      −the attempt of Donte’s mom to abort Donte Cullen−

  • Potionzmaster

    Good to see you! :D

  • Cry_Zero

    I hope to see another AC on Vita and inFAMOUS VITA, another Uncharted on Vita and GOD OF WAR ON VITA!!!

    • Sevyne

      The Vita definitely needs an Infamous and God of War game already. I never was a huge fan of either, but they are strong titles.

      • Cry_Zero

        Oh how could i not mention Gravity Rush 2? Shame on me ! And I hope if they are going to do these games, they have to look gorgeous. I dont want to see games with crappy graphics and I know its not everything but I want my vita game to look as good as they can

    • Elvick

      I’m hoping for another AC. Would love another Uncharted too, as well as Soul Sacrifice 2 and Gravity Rush 2 (but those would probably be TGS announcements and SS2 would be a ways off I’d think).

      An inFamous would be fantastic too. More open world games in general would.

      I’m personally so behind on GoW that I’ve lost a bit of interest, but I’d definitely buy a GoW on Vita.

  • new_tradition

    I am… Intrigued O.O

  • Sal Romano

    Not sure if this has anything to do with anything, but:

    IGN’s Colin Moriarty: “At midnight, I’m posting exclusive first hands-on with a Vita & PS3 game you’re probably mighty excited about. Can’t wait to talk about it.”

    • Kefkiroth

      I’m thinking Dragon’s Crown. Though there’s already a lot of coverage on it, so maybe something more obscure like FFX HD?

    • Sevyne

      Another quote from him, “Writing previews like the one going live tonight can DRAG ON, because it’s hard to identify all of the game’s CROWNing achievements.”

      So unless he’s trying to just throw us off, it’s definitely Dragon’s Crown. Still can’t wait to check it out.

      • Sal Romano

        Ah, darn.

        Still, new Dragon’s Crown details, woot.

        • Sevyne

          Yeah, I was hoping it would be something else we don’t know much about, but I’m cool with some more on Dragon’s Crown.

  • Aldridge517

    2013 is a good year for gaming, lot of surprises :)

  • PrinceHeir

    let’s see!!!

  • kroufonz

    can we still hope wild arms 6!

    i am really afraid that next gen there will be even far less number of japanese centric 1st party console game from sony.

    • Elvick

      You have no idea how badly I want Wild Arms 6… and for Sony in general to get back into RPGs.

    • kenshee

      Well, I agree with this, but if we’re just going to post Jrpg series we wish would’ve continued, please don’t forget:

      Grandia 4
      suikoden 6
      shadow hearts 4
      legaia 3
      valkyrie profile 3
      jade cocoon 3
      breath of fire 6
      new arc the lad game
      new .hack rpg(s)
      My personal pet peeve: legend of dragoon 2

      I genuinely hope that now that the ps4 should be far easier to develop for, and sony is pushing the “wide price range experiences”, we might see Jrpgs come back to the console again.

      I know there’s some portable offerings in a few of the series I mentioned, but that’s not really the same as the next numbered installments in a console series :/

      I’m personally really happy that a drakengard 3 is (still) coming. It doesn’t look high budget in the least, in fact it looks like an upscaled ps2 game so far. But that’s perfectly fine, I liked those games for gameplay, music(!!) and story.
      I really hope it gets enough support and proves that these older series still have some fight in ’em, provided you budget them according to the limited (but hardcore) audience they have :)

  • Sal Romano

    Okay, so this one is definitely something:

    Zach Wood, Sr. Producer at Sony Santa Monica: “Excited about a new project reveal tomorrow!”

  • sherimae1324

    sony, its time to show those unannounced vita games! ^_^
