Why Sony can't pull a Bungie with its PS4 showcase

Postby STE MO » 18 Feb 2013, 15:31

I wonder if Destiny is going to be a launch title for the next Xbox?

1. Does this kick off at 11pm UK time?

2. How long is this expected to last? 1 hour or a couple of hours?

3. Can I stream this Event online?


OT with the article, I too am expecting big things from this Event. Sony just cant afford to drop the ball with this, at all.

The pressure is on, its up to them to deliver!

1. Yes.

2. My guess is 1 - 1.5 hours. Probably the former.

3. We'll have a live stream in our live blog on the day.

Not all of the firm's cards will be played in New York - we're already hearing whispers that key details such as pricing, release and even console design could be held back - but there's plenty to suggest it'll be a landmark event for gamers.


That deflated me a bit :roll: If that is true it is probably going to be a year or more away then? :roll:
I just hope Naughty Dog and Bungie have something to show off that day :shock:

I'll wait til the game is out and some spotty Halo fan (that's for you KK if you're reading ;)) uploads some real gameplay to youtube.

Can't trust anything devs say or release to the press following Aliensgate.

E3 will be the place for final spec in June if not Wednesday.
I have allways imported my new console, (PSP, PS Vita and PS3) when they did the good thing of going multi region so I'll be doing it again. I wont wait until next year if we have to wait in Europe even if it's just a few months. I don't do wait....lol

I look forward to seeing Kaz Hirai tell us all that we should be honored to take out a 2nd morgage on our home so we can afford the ps4 before showing us footage of giant prerendered Lobsters.

Or a big surprise. LIke the ps4 is actually a streaming platfrom within the PS3. Now that'd be news.

Does anyone else find it disappointing that Sony chooses to do the reveal in NY? Japan and Europe have been its primary markets and surely deserve the attention. I guess they want to wrestle away some of the US market share from Microsoft so can't blame them, but does feel like a little snub to the regions who have embraced the PS3 the most.

Not in the least, NYC is a grand stage and lots of events are marquee there. It's basically the world stage for debuts of many kinds of products, NYC or San Francisco. Nothing to do with who embraced PS products, just have to use a place that gets a lot of media coverage and is a grand stage is all.

Sony needs to show clips of their hottest series, this includes Uncharted and Gran Turismo, Last Guardian and some 3rd party games that can readily convey the jump from PS3 to PS4/Orbis. Sony will more than likely point out what the system alleviates and will definitely talk up PSN free and paid subscription model and transferability of PSN tag to the new system. It's going to be a bit of a gloat fest and slightly humble.

Nice, nice.....

This man is hyped for the new consoles, doubt I will import, but its nice to see someone revelling in the theatre of the next generation of console gaming

Over to Sony, we want to be wowed, they need to bring the thunder

And after Sony, same again from MS for their product launch

Most important for me from Wednesday is to be some idea of launch titles and dates for release

BF4 & Drake with a Christmas 2013 release date will be golden for me

Last Guardian would be the icing on the cake but I'm struggling to believe that game will ever release

This better be good is all I can say. Sony is advertising this meeting as something that will change gaming so it better not be something crap like Haze 2.

Oh and there better be no giant enemy crabs :P
