We’re just a bit over a month to E3, and today a source that opted to remain anonymous contacted us to share what he alleges to be Sony Computer Entertainment’s plans for their press conference.
 
Our source mentioned that the information comes from contacts within Sony’s worldwide studios and a further contact at the BBH New York marketing firm, which works with Sony for part of its promotion.
 
The info reported below is awfully detailed, which is one of the reasons why we decided to publish it, but we were also able to confirm part of it with a second source. The double-sourced information is bolded, so while you should take everything with the customary grain of salt, the bolded parts stand on more solid ground than the rest.

The source also mentioned that the following publishers will be on stage: Rockstar (with Grand Theft Auto), Ubisoft, Electronic Arts, Konami, Capcom, Warner Bros, Activision, Square Enix, Take Two.
 
(Update: our source followed up saying that he’s actually not 100% sure if Rockstar will actually be on stage or Sony will just announce the next generation Ground Theft Auto V on their behalf)
 
There will also big titles announced for the Instant Game Collection, a segment on Project Morpheus, one on the Sony Entertainment Network and a re-introduction of PlayStation Now. Price drops will also be unveiled for the PS3 and PS Vita.
 
We’ll also see several smaller-scale, downloadable titles. PS Vita Vita will get some attention, but not much – as it’ll be a PS4 show. PS3 will get a montage and few new titles. Finally, the show will close with a teaser of a sequel of The Last of Us.
 
Again, everything mentioned above should be taken with the skepticism usually reserved to rumors, but much of it is so specific that it’s hard to completely disbelieve it. Unfortunately we’ll have to wait for June to see if everything will check out, but one thing is for sure: Personally I really hope it will, because if this is really what Sony’s presser will look like, we’re in for a real treat.

Only really posting this so Andy can freak out about Heavenly Sword 2 :p

 

The E3 leak machine running as usual this year to deflate all the conference surprises!

Cant wait for every-single-one of them but Uncharted is on a league of its own.

Heavenly Sword 2 and Wipeout :woot:* hugs PS4* :wub: :laugh: I so hope those rumours are real.

 

GT6 coming to PS4 would be nice since I've yet to pick it up. Was tempted recently with the £15 price tag.

 

God of War 4...eh - I wish they'd give it a break. I was down on them for Ascension despite it being solid gameplay as always. The story has reached it's limits though, so it needs a big emphasis in that department if they're to continue. No doubt it will look amazing but.

 

Semi-disappointed MM's title will be Morpheus-exclusive from the sounds of it, unless the hardware is going to be decently priced.

 

No Crash rumour? :(

2.when event occurs, claim your list nailed things that were on list,and the false things were the result of changes or obscure details.
3. congratulations. you are now officially an industry insider.

Cant wait for a bunch of devs to claim they've gotten "100% out of the PS4" with their brand new poorly optimised engines.

do you optimize game engines for a living?

No, but prior experience isn't a requirement for criticism, it happens all the time, they announce "We've gotten 100% out of X or Y console". because technically it is true, the game is pushing the console to its limits, but then they announce a sequel a year later and it looks much, much better. Usually better from a technical standpoint too. 

 

I think it's dishonest, it gives the impression to people that games aren't going to get better than that. 

 

 

 

"I think Uncharted 1 used maybe 30 percent efficiency. Uncharted 2 we were finally using 100 percent, but it wasn't as efficient as it could be. Then, Uncharted 3 we got way more efficient," Minkoff explains. "With The Last of Us, we are as efficient as we can possibly be. It's just squeezing every last drop of power out of the system.

 

When Naughty Dog claimed Uncharted 2 was using 100% of the PS3, I think it's deceptive. It makes people think it will never improve. I've seen other devs claim it last gen too, when consoles were 1-2 years old they were claiming to using "100% of its potential" Kojima claimed the exact same about MGS4.

 

Turn 10 is already claiming they're using 100% of the Xbox One. Witcher 3 is already claiming to use "nearly" 100% of the X1 and PS4.

 

To re-iterate, I know they're technically correct, but I find it very misleading for the general public.

I was thinking the exact same thing.

 

I guess it's good to "kill" any momentum a competitor mite gain.  But it also gives a different message as well (And I don't mean that in a positive way)

Because they'll probably be releasing in the same time frame as one another?

 

In the past it was the original Uncharted trilogy vs Gears trilogy. Both of them were used as benchmarks of each console as pushing the hardware properly for next-gen.

Gears is not coming for another year or two and they both have not much in common. :/ It's like showing Uncharted to counter Halo 5.

It's not about genre vs genre. Just as it wasn't for Titanfall vs inFamous. They both released in the same month for a reason and it wasn't coincidence.

I still don't see point of explicitly marking it as "to offset Gears". Both are established IPs with core fanbase. Nothing Sony does in God of War will make a Gears fan drop Gears4 and pick God of war. The rest of the audience won't care for the game announcement at E3.

Not sure what you think offset means, but it's clearly not what the rest of us define it as.

 

 
offset
something that counterbalances, counteracts, or compensates for something else; compensating equivalent.

They're not insulting Gears, they're not belittling it as inferior, they aren't trying to steal fans from the series.

 

They're releasing a product at the same time (as close as they can). Why this needs to be explained to you I've no idea. It's nothing new and every holiday or release period of the year is exactly the same and always will be, nor is it exclusive to games.

A PS fans wetdream of an E3 list is "leaked" and we're arguing about GoW vs GoW? Cmon chaps, get a grip :p

 

It says to offset partially the MS presser - It's two long term and well known franchises, if Sony are introducing a lot of new stuff it counts to introduce something tried, tested and big. I would take it as to do that for them if MS are going to bring the old school powerhouses as well.
