    Hmmmm, I wonder if this is going to be like some pre-TGS thing.

    • TetsuyaHikari

      Nah. Probably just talking about details for PS4 in Japan, maybe discuss bundles and such.

      • Pyrofrost

        Couldn’t they just talk about that at the TGS? Sony usually has a 1~2 hour event there.

        • TetsuyaHikari

          Who’s to say they won’t? TGS is generally for showcasing games though. They probably will give a certain amount of time towards talking about the PS4 though since it’s a hot topic right now and will be releasing in a few months.

          • Pyrofrost

            Yeah, makes sense.

            I’m looking forward to all the next gen stuff being behind us.

  • bloodiOS

    I’m hoping to hear some good news there.
    I’m also curious whether or not Gematsu is going to cover CEDEC 2013?

  • shogunknight

    In 3 weeks. Probably release plans for PS4 in japan, the japanese games would be revealed soon :)

  • Dark_N11

    INB4 TLG .. That game is dead , move on.

  • King-Podigy-X

    Not expecting much besides the release plans for Japan.

  • DarthBrian

    Legend of Dragoon PS4!


    • Alkaid

      Would buy it thrice! >/////__>

  • Solomon_Kano

    Most likely just details on the PS4’s Japanese launch, seeing as TGS is just 10 days later and Sony’s got a keynote lined up for then.

  • Leon Keyv

    maybe this is to appease their shareholders? because the TGS is just weeks away.

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

  • Lelouch Vi Britannia

    The Last Guardian(PS4) at this point

  • DarthNemesis

    I just hope rogue galaxy 2 dark cloud 3 and a proper ape escape game is announed at TGS but I doubt it.

  • RyoonZ

    A 1st party JRPG please!!!


    GRAVITY RUSH 2!!!!! T.T i really want it

    • Elvick

      And then Soul Sacrifice 2.

      I want those sequels so bad…

      • Kurisu Makise

        Honestly guys, I think those sequels are all but confirmed. I’ve no doubt but the question is “What’s next” after those. They need to get a non Hunting Action big game out too besides Gravity Rush, aka a nice solid RPG effort.

        • Elvick

          If Sony ever tosses their hat into RPG ring again, sans partnering with Level-5 for something (ala: White Knight Chronicles) then I’ll die of shock.

          • Kurisu Makise

            Please be— well in all honesty, they do need something. An Evergreen title, specifically.

    • HassanJamal

      So do i and everyone on vita. It was a magnificent game!

  • jujubee88

    SCE JAUT?!?! (translation: Say what?!?!)

    Also, I’m damn curious to see the Sony Japan response bc I’ve read from a reliable source on GAF that MS is moneyhatting some Japanese devs and games right now (ala EA and free FIFA w/ some Xbox One EU preorders).

    TGS will just hype me up even more for my PS4 preorder. Sony OWNS the floor and stage of TGS each and every year. This will be no exception. HYPE!!!!

    • TetsuyaHikari

      Moneyhatting some Japanese devs? Your “reliable source” is bullshitting you, lol. The 360 isn’t popular in Japan, the One won’t be popular in Japan either. Frankly, Microsoft itself isn’t popular in Japan.

      • Raiu

        Microsoft did moneyhatted some Japanese devs before… I wouldn’t be surprised if they did succeeded on securing some… Also, the same “reliable source” did sort of got something right; It’s Sony planning a pre-TGS event if I remember it right…

        Hence why Microsoft has built their own Japanese studio to remedy that in case things don’t go well…

        • TetsuyaHikari

          Accepting money from a dead company is as good as flushing it down the toilet. Either the rumor is false or they’re fucking idiots, lol.

  • Raiu

    If anything, this conference will be just like how the February conference did… More insight on hardware, future, vision, etc…. Just don’t expect a lot of games announcements… Knowing that they should save some for TGS…

  • Nintendo Fan 4 Lif3

    That means the Eastern time for the U.S. would be 1 A.M.-that sucks. Hopefully I’m not tired and able to be awake to watch it.

  • Kurisu Makise

    A press conference, so that means some big things are going to come from this (for PS4 and maybe Vita)? And it’s on the 9th? It’s like the good news train just won’t stop.

  • Martian Wong

    Come on, Freedom Wars

  • Willgaea

    So is this live stream 3 hours away?
