I thought I would start a thread where we can discuss the news that comes out of Gamescom this week.

 

The biggest news will most certainly come from Sony's conference being held tomorrow (1pm EST/10am PST) where we have heard that they will lay out the release date and regions for the first launch wave of the ps4. 

 

Of course, Sony also will be talking about the ps3 and Vita, so expect a healthy mix covering all of their platforms.  They have also said that there will be unannounced games discussed along with games we have already seen, so there is room for surprises there.  Then there is the rumor about an updated Vita, so who knows what will happen.

 

For anyone wanting to watch the conference live, Gametrailers will be covering it as will others, I'm sure.  Its a 3 hour event, so there should be a lot packed in, hopefully a fair amount of new info.

20 minutes to go, hope you guys get to check it out. 

 

Now that I know the launch lineup for the X1 and MS has laid out almost all of their plans that I had questions about, I'm ready for Sony to do the same.  I'm ready to pre-order something. 

 

This should be good.

For me, what I want to hear about most is the launch lineup and if there is a vita bundle. Any new exclusives would be great too.

Is anyone watching this on the Playstation blog? What the hell is with the random sound effects playing over the stream?

Their stream is the same stuff. A bunch of random sound effects with no video or context. /confused

If I had to guess, it might be sound effects from a game.  Maybe they will lead into that game to start the event

I was really looking forward to see The Order gameplay. It's lame that the game won't be shown at Gamescom. I guess Killzone MP will have to suffice. PLEASE BE LIKE KZ2!

Yeah, I was stocked to see more of The Order.  I'm not big into fps, so KZ doesn't do much for me.  But it definitely looks good for those that like the genre a lot.

may be this? (from engadget liveblog)

 

 

A collection of folks are on-stage playing various PlayStation 4 games, a la Sony's E3 2013 PlayStation press event. The first game was a favorite of ours, Ocotodad: Dadliest Catch.

The UI looked good and responsive. But I couldn't see much in the way of details of the UI or Killizone because the damn camera was too far away. Fail from a production standpoint so far.

Man, the stream did not give us a good look at the UI, not enough close ups
